Summary

Ever get that eerie feeling that your cat or dog knows what you're thinking? They just might! Scientist Rupert Sheldrake brings you five years of extensive research on animal behavior, challenging traditional scientific assumptions that pets do not warrant serious study. Well-known for his controversial and revolutionary theory of "morphic resonance" and "morphogenetic fields," Sheldrake applied this to his subject with ingenious questions that have resulted in confirmation that animals do indeed possess psychic and intuitive abilities. You'll also hear astonishing stories involving parrots, termites, and farm animals that will have you looking at the animal kingdom in a whole new light. Rupert Sheldrake studied natural sciences at Cambridge and philosophy at Harvard, took a Ph.D. in biochemistry at Cambridge and is the author of more than 50 scientific papers. He's the author of many books including The Presence of the Past (Times Books 1995); Seven Experiments That Could Change the World: A Do-It Yourself Guide to Revolutionary Science (Riverhead Books 1995); A New Science of Life: The Hypothesis of Morphic Resonance (J.P. Tarcher 1995); The Rebirth of Nature; The Greening of Science and God (Bantam 1991); Dogs That Know When Their Owners Are Coming Home: And Other Unexplained Powers of Animals (Three Rivers Press 2001); The Sense of Being Stared At: And Other Aspects of The Extended Mind (Crown 2003); co-authored with Matthew Fox Natural Grace: Dialogues on Creation, Darkness; the Soul in Spirituality and Science (Doubleday 1996); and The Physics of Angels: Exploring the Realm Where Science and Spirit Meet (HarperSanFrancisco 1996).

Great and short listening!

Great and short presentation of scientific research about telepathy. It's for sure that I will dig deeper into this topic.

Telepathy starts with setting our Intention

Rupert really understands and answers how animals and humans communicate. There's just too much evidence all around us. Brilliantly traces how this probably happened over our long relationship with animals.

Well done Interview with Rupert Sheldrake.

This is a radio interview of "New Dimensions" about the human and animal minds connections to each other and their own kind. It was quite comprehensive considering it's just an interview. well worth the listen.

basically a radio program

interesting subject, a somewhat boring format. it's pretty much a radio program. Basically a watered down pbs type program.
