A new science of life : the hypothesis of formative causation by Rupert Sheldrake( Book )

94 editions published between 1981 and 2011 in 8 languages and held by 1,195 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After chemists crystallised a new chemical for the first time, it became easier and easier to crystallise 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. Sheldrake reinterprets the regularities of nature as being more like habits than immutable laws

Rupert Sheldrake's theory of morphic resonance challenges the fundamental assumptions of modern science. A world-famous biologist, Sheldrake proposes that all self-organizing systems, from crystals to human societies, inherit a collective memory that influences their form and behaviour. Rather than being ruled by fixed laws, nature is essentially habitual
Seven experiments that could change the world : a do-it-yourself guide to revolutionary science by Rupert Sheldrake( Book )

40 editions published between 1994 and 2013 in 7 languages and held by 1,016 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

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

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 72 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
