Rupert Sheldrake’s TEDx talk censored by the scientific board of TED.
Sheldrake gives a brief summary of some of the points he writes about in his book ‘The Science Delusion’ known in the U.S. as ‘Science Set Free’.
In his book ‘A new Science of Life: The Hypothesis of Morphic Resonance’ (1981) Sheldrake details a model called ‘Morphic Resonance’ which can explain how certain biological feats are possible but that the standard model fails to adequately account for. His account of ‘Morphogenesis’ using his hypothesis of morphic fields could be the most plausible explanation in current scientific theory for why organisms develop into their particular physical shape.
This idea from Sheldrake is a new paradigm in our understanding of biology and is nonetheless coherent in the context of biophysics and issues of instinctual memory and embryonic development, however, it is also very controversial amongst many scientists who are attached too rigidly to the paradigm that Sheldrake extends and refines in light of challenging evidence. He also uses experimental evidence to back his ideas up, evidence that the scientific establishment seems to have the following attitude towards: “My mind is made up, don’t confuse me with facts”.
Read ‘The New Inquisition’ by Robert Anton Wilson if you would like an account of the new paradigm that fundamentalist materialist scientists are trying to hold back simply because they do not understand it and have a vested interest in the materialist paradigm that they appear to also be dogmatically attached to, which of course is, ironically, unscientific in itself.
