Not to be Scoffed at!
For those of you who don’t know about Rupert Sheldrake, and the research he’s done, a lot of his serious academic/scientific work often makes uncomfortable reading for the traditional scientific community since it really adds weight to the idea of spirituality and the limitations of our current understanding of science in general and how much of modern science is more of a dogma rather than unbiased scientific endeavour.
Very often things which, as of yet, don’t have rational explanations are not taken into serious consideration by the scientific community, because they don’t fit into conventional scientific thought, since it’s presumed that sufficient tools already exist to explain everything around us in our world.
However, when something which is apparently extraordinary and thought therefore to not be possible and considered to be either a coincidence or our imagination, when it happens to a large number of people on a regular basis, it can be argued that it should perhaps not be thought of as being extraordinary but rather an ordinary occurrence, and tested scientifically; rather than be scoffed at as being a childish fantasy world of make-believe.
And this is indeed what Sheldrake does, all of which makes compelling reading…
