Bangalorean, I just took a look at the Wikipedia page on Sheldrake, and it didn't make a grain of sense to me.

Any chance that I could have better luck with an explanation from you?

Did you really just think all that up and type it or are you pasting it from somewhere?

Shadow is long gone, Thomas Robertson, but that was an impressive argument.:)

Which part didn't make sense - he says a great deal. Did you look at that link I posted to youtube?

I bascially wanted to discuss morph fields that he describes with someone who'd be interested. This is the only topix thread with 'sheldrake' on it.

As for discussing Rupert Sheldrake's, I'll kick the discussion off with the observation that Rupert Sheldrake is a crank. None of his "theories" are scientific ones because they are unfalsifiable.
Then you must also deem Hawkings a crank.

I haven't noticed his theories being testable either.

Bangalorean, are you referring to posts #82 and #83?
That is my own work.
I never cut and paste without acknowledgement.

As for your youtube link, I'm sorry, but Youtube is censored in China.
There is a marginally legal way to get Youtube in China, and I intend to look into it when I get to that point on my list.
So I had to rely on Wikipedia to tell me about Sheldrake.

Subduction Zone's post reminds me:

South Korea is approximately one-fourth Buddhist, one-fourth Christian, and one-half uncommitted.
It lacks many of the social problems which plague the United States.
I once had to tell a group of English students what sexual abuse was, because they never heard of it before.
People aren't afraid to go out on the city streets at night.
Stores leave merchandise out on the sidewalk with no fear of anything getting stolen.
If "ye shall know them by their fruits," then South Korea passes the fruit inspection.

Sorry, I didn't know you were unable to see it - maybe you can download it from Isohunt or somewhere? The name is "Rupert Sheldrake and Bruce Lipton A quest beyond the limits of ordinary"
