Experiments in Telepathy

Show Archive
Date: Tuesday - December 2, 2003
Host: George Noory
Guests: Rupert Sheldrake

Dr. Rupert Sheldrake 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 was calling them or be thinking of them just before the phone rings. Sheldrake related this to the intention of the caller, theorizing that their "mind reaches out" to the person they are calling just before they pick up the phone and it is during this period that the other person thinks of them. Animals and dogs in particular, have shown signs of such telepathy or precognition. Sheldrake discussed experiments that recorded dogs moving to a window or a door to await their master shortly before their arrival, even when the owner came home at random times.
