Rupert Sheldrake

Utne Reader visionary [Originally published as Rupert Sheldrake in the January-February 1995 issue of Utne Reader]

| January/February 1995

Sheldrake is a Cambridge-trained research biologist whose modest proposals in his new book, Seven Experiments that Could Change the World, have upset scientific orthodoxy. His experiments are designed to help explain many hitherto mysterious natural phenomena, such as the migration of birds, human/pet telepathic connections, and the phantom limbs of amputees. He is best known for his theory of “morphic resonance”“a web of memory linking generations of creatures everywhere, allowing the experiences of each to benefit all.” The author of A New Science of Life, The Presence of the Past, and The Rebirth of Nature, he is currently a fellow of the Institute of Noetic Sciences in San Francisco.
