Seven experiments that could change the world : a do-it-yourself guide to revolutionary science by Rupert Sheldrake( Book )

48 editions published between 1994 and 2013 in 8 languages and held by 953 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How do pets know when their owners are coming home? How do they find people who have moved and left them behind? Can we really sense when someone is staring at us? Can a person feel the touch of a phantom arm? These are common examples of some of the extraordinary abilities which human beings and animals all have, but which have been ignored, left unexplained by science. Celebrated biologist Rupert Sheldrake is the first scientist to develop simple experiments that anyone can perform to unravel the mysteries that science has refused to acknowledge. These seven simple experiments, now being performed all over the world, could revolutionize our understanding of reality, and the Institute of Noetic Sciences has begun the Seven Experiments Project to track people's results. Readers will find themselves on a journey of discovery - of how migrating birds find their way across thousands of miles to continents they have never been to before, of how the earth's gravitational pull is anything but constant - that will continue long after they finish this book. Seven Experiments That Could Change the World represents a broad-based research program and an open invitation for widespread participation in creating new science

Das Gedächtnis der Natur : das Geheimnis der Entstehung der Formen in der Natur by Rupert Sheldrake( Book )

29 editions published between 1987 and 2017 in 5 languages and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Audaz, brillante, claro e incisivo, este libro constituye un dramático desafío a los supuestos más fundamentales de la ciencia establecida. La teoría convencional postula que la naturaleza está gobernada por leyes inmutables: lo que el autor sugiere es que la naturaleza tiene memoria, y que esta memoria se propaga por de un proceso de conexión no material llamado resonancia mórfica. La cuestión de la morfogénesis -cómo las cosas cobran su forma- es todavía un gran misterio científico. ¿Qué es lo que hace que un conejo tenga forma de conejo? ¿Por qué las moléculas se agrupan de determinada manera? ¿Por qué las sociedades siguen patrones predecibles? De acuerdo con el autor, tales cuestiones permanecen sin respuesta en la medida en que la ciencia cree en el esquema de un universo mecánico. Pero la naturaleza no es una máquina, y todo sistema -trátese de cristales, animales o sociedades- viene regido, no por leyes universales, sino por un campo mórfico que contiene una memoria colectiva. La presencia del pasado es, pues, un libro enormemente innovador que abre nuevas direcciones para el dasarrollo de la ciencia, y que apunta a una nueva comprension de la naturaleza, de la vida, de la materia y de la mente
Science and spiritual practices : transformative experiences and their effects on our bodies, brains, and health by Rupert Sheldrake( Book )

4 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The effects of spiritual practices are now being investigated scientifically as never before, and many studies have shown that religious and spiritual practices generally make people happier and healthier. In this pioneering book, Rupert Sheldrake shows how science helps validate seven practices on which many religions are built, and which are part of our common human heritage: meditation, gratitude, connecting with nature, relating to plants, rituals, singing and chanting, and pilgrimage and holy places. Sheldrake summarizes the latest scientific research on what happens when we take part in these practices, and suggests ways that readers can explore these fields for themselves. For those who are religious, Science and Spiritual Practices will illuminate the evolutionary origins of their own traditions and give a new appreciation of their power. For the nonreligious, this book will show how the core practices of spirituality are accessible to all. This is a book for anyone who suspects that in the drive toward radical secularism, something valuable has been left behind. Rupert Sheldrake compellingly argues that by opening ourselves to the spiritual dimension, we may find the strength to live more fulfilling lives

23 editions published between 1991 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Se tournant vers les origines de la culture. R. Sheldrake cherche à comprendre comment l'homme en est arrivé à considérer la nature comme une entité inerte.

Arguing science : a dialogue on the future of science and spirit by Rupert Sheldrake( )

6 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two controversial authors debate the nature and methods of science, its dogmas, and its future. Rupert Sheldrake argues that science needs to free itself from materialist dogma while Michael Shermer contends that science, properly conceived, is a materialistic enterprise; for science to look beyond materialist explanations is to betray science and engage in superstition. Issues discussed include: materialism and its role in science, whether belief in God is compatible with a scientific perspective, and parapsychology
Morphic resonance : the nature of formative causation by Rupert Sheldrake( Book )

7 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"New updated and expanded edition of the groundbreaking book that ignited a firestorm in the scientific world with its radical approach to evolution."
Das schöpferische Universum : d. Theorie d. morphogenetischen Feldes by Rupert Sheldrake( Book )

30 editions published between 1981 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After chemists crystallized a new chemical for the first time, it became easier and easier to crystallize in laboratories all over the world. After rats at Harvard first escaped from a new kind of water maze, successive generations learned quicker and quicker. Then rats in Melbourne, Australia learned yet faster. Rats with no trained ancestors shared in this improvement. Rupert Sheldrake sees these processes as examples of morphic resonance. Past forms and activities of organisms, he argues, influence organisms in the present through direct connections across time and space. Individual plants
A new science of life : the hypothesis of morphic resonance by Rupert Sheldrake( Book )

9 editions published between 1995 and 2002 in 3 languages and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The sense of being stared at : and other unexplained powers of human minds by Rupert Sheldrake( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drawing on more than 5,000 case histories, 4,000 questionnaire responses, and the results of experiments on staring, thought transference, phone telepathy, and other phenomena carried out with more than 20,000 people as well as reports and data from dozens of independent research teams, Sheldrake shows that these unexplained human abilities--such as the sense of being stared at--are not paranormal but normal, part of our biological nature. He reveals that telepathy depends on social bonds and traces its evolution from the connections between members of animal groups such as flocks, schools, and packs. Sheldrake shows that our minds and intentions extend beyond our brains into our surroundings with invisible connections that link us to each other, to the world around us, and even to the future
