Does Telepathy Happen?
Chaired by Professor Simon Blackburn
Rupert at the BA Festival of Science UEA Norwich Sept 5th 2006
Rupert's paper on Telepathy was the subject of intense controversy. For example, Prof Peter Atkins, a chemist at Oxford University, was quoted as saying, “There is absolutely no reason to suppose that telepathy is anything more than a charlatan’s fantasy.” On the same day, BBC Radio 5 broadcast a debate between the two.

Presence of the Past
Were there any laws of the universe at the same time of the big bang? Cambridge trained biologist Rupert Sheldrake, author of A New Science of Life and The Presence of the Past, says that all laws developed as habits over time. Thus the universe and its laws can be seen to be applied to physics, chemistry and cosmology. This audio clip is from the Thinking Allowed Series video with Dr. Jeffrey Mishlove. 28min.
The Universal Organism
The so-called "laws of nature" may actually be more like habits and instincts than immutable and inviolable principles. Rupert Sheldrake, biologist and author of the controversial A New Science of Life, suggests that from this perspective all of creation may be viewed as a living organism. This ancient concept challenges the notion of the universe as a mechanism with God as the great mechanic. This audio clip is from the Thinking Allowed Series video with Dr. Jeffrey Mishlove. 28min.

The Relationship Between Humans & Animals
We need contact with animals - beginning with the ancient shamans up until today with domesticated animals like dogs and cats. Rupert explores why it may be that we need this bond and how disastrous our present situation is - where cows and pig are herded and slaughtered by the masses for indulgent consumers on their lunch breaks to McDonald's. 5min.
