Ever wanted to know why sometimes you know who is calling you before picking up the phone? Or why dogs seem to “know” when their master is approaching before seeing or sensing him? Well there are people interested in a more serious approach to the field of extrasensorial phenomena than the age-long blamed New Age pack. Among them the respectable Rupert Sheldrake a botanist who earned a doctorate in biochemistry from Cambridge University and later studied at Harvard University, Mr. Sheldrake has earned an international reputation for applying scientific method to quasi-scientific subjects.

You do not need any special powers to realize that I am a complete amateur and quite foreign to the much respected area of science in general (I am not a scholar to put it bluntly and frankly) let alone the one the guy is specialised in.
I have stumbled upon his site and the blog thanks to another guy pointing to him a guy whose blog I am following and who gave a link to a discussion he has had recently with Mr Sheldrake. I am a sucker for things and ideas that are a little controversial and “morphic fields and morphic resonance” surely fit the criteria so here I am.
Those interested in a scientific approach to unexplained human and animal abilities can find out more about it following Mr Rupert Sheldrake work and opinions on the subject. He wrote a successful book, among others, with a pretty self-explanatory title “The Science Delusion: Freeing the Spirit of Enquiry”.
With an increasing number of my acquaintances attracted to the subject of paranormal but wary of the plethora of amateurs out there I thought that this can be a starting point for a challenge. Any thoughts just leave a message. Any way you like.
