The Extended Mind: Recent Experimental Evidence


Rupert Sheldrake

  (born 28 June 1942) is an English author, lecturer, and parapsychologist. He was formerly a biochemist and plant physiologist at the University of Cambridge and elsewhere.[1][2] Since 1981, his writings have largely been centred around his hypothesis of “morphic resonance”, which according to Sheldrake posits that “natural systems, such as termite colonies, or pigeons, or orchid plants, or insulin molecules, inherit a collective memory from all previous things of their kind”[3]and is responsible for “mysterious telepathy-type interconnections between organisms”.[4] As such, his works promoting this idea encompass topics such as animal and plant development and behaviour along with various parapsychological claims involving memory, telepathy, perception and cognition.
