Intellectual Phase Locking (12:00)

Rupert Sheldrake - The Science Delusion BANNED TED TALK

Rupert has some interesting ideas. If the data he sites are real, then there is some real funny business going on. On the other hand, no one seems to have any explanation for any of these things, and even if they do there doesn't seem to be anything to be done about, or with, it. Maybe his comments will provoke someone to look a little deeper into these things, and perhaps someone will gain some insight and we will make a great leap forward in our understanding of how the universe works. Or maybe not. Meanwhile we can continue to slog along with our mechanistic view of the universe.
    Reminds me of Plato's view that our perception of reality is akin to watching shadows on the cave wall, or the philosophy of Ibn Sina who had a similar view.
