Rupert Sheldrake is a biologist and author. He studied natural sciences at Cambridge and philosophy at Harvard, where he was a Frank Knox Fellow. He took a Ph.D. in biochemistry at Cambridge in 1967 and was a Fellow of Clare College, Cambridge, where he was Director of Studies in biochemistry and cell biology until 1973. As a Research Fellow of the Royal Society, he carried out research at Cambridge on the development of plants and the aging of cells. In addition to his numerous books, he is the author of more than fifty papers in scientific journals.
His experiments into unusual and unexplained perceptiveness in humans make a compelling case that intuition, precognition, and telepathy are not paranormal, but are, in fact, normal functions drawn from our biological past.
Neuroscientist and musician Seth Horowitz joined Ian Punnett (Twitter) to discuss how sound affects us, and in turn, how we've learned to manipulate sound. In the first hour, Rupert Sheldrake talked about how science is riddled with various dogmas that limit new possibilities, and discovery. ... More »Host: Ian Punnett

Researcher and author Rupert Sheldrake returned to the show to discuss unusual perceptions that he has studied in humans and animals. People can often sense they are being stared at, even when they can't see the person looking at them, he has discovered through controlled experiments. ... More »Host: Art Bell
Tuesday's guest, Dr. Rupert Sheldrake (sheldrake.org) has concluded through his experimentation that telepathy is not paranormal, but in fact, a normal function that may be hard wired into us. In one experiment he described blindfolded people who were able to sense when someone else was looking at them, with accuracy far exceeding statistical chance. Sheldrake named "the morphic field" which living things are plugged into, as the basis for this phenomenon. When someone is looking at you, their attention stretches out into the morphic field, like an "eyebeam" and that may be what the other person is sensing, Sheldrake explained. Certain people are more sensitive and women tend to score higher in these abilities. Indeed, mothers who are breastfeeding their babies can exhibit a kind of "biological telepathy" and sense when their children need them from a distance, Sheldrake reported. Telepathy has also been observed in telephone experiments, where people were able to sense who wa ... More »Host: George Noory
