The front line of parapsychology

In this new episode of The Sheldrake-Vernon Dialogues, Rupert Sheldrake and I discuss how psi experiences can best be understood.

The evidence for these phenomena is dismissed by sceptics with increasingly dogmatic assertions. But that’s no surprise because the data in support of phenomena from telepathy to pre-sentience is now openly discussed in leading science journals.

So the real question, at the forefront of research, is which of the various ways for accounting for them is most productive.

We draw on the proposals aired at a recent seminar attended by the leading theorists, including Rupert himself. We explore the ideas of practising physicists and biologists working in the area, and move onto questions from the nature of time and consciousness to the philosophy of A.N. Whitehead.

The many previous discussions between myself and Rupert Sheldrake can be found on youtube, streamed, Spotify, iHeartRadio, as a playlist on SoundCloud, and on iTunes.
