Rupert Sheldrake
Alfred Rupert Sheldrake is an English author,[3] public speaker,[4] and researcher in the field of parapsychology,[5] known for his "morphic resonance" concept.[6] He worked as a biochemist and cell biologist at Cambridge University from 1967 to 1973[3] and as principal plant physiologist at the International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics until 1978.[7] Sheldrake's morphic resonance posits that "memory is inherent in nature"[3][8] and 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".[8] Sheldrake proposes that it is also responsible for "telepathy-type interconnections between organisms".[9] His advocacy of the idea encompasses paranormal subjects such as precognition, telepathy and the psychic staring effect[10][11] as well as unconventional explanations of standard subjects in biology such as development, inheritance, and memory.[12] Background Related:  Rupert Sheldrake | champs morphogénétiquesFilosofia da CienciaMystic science

La nature réssuscite sous nos pas La morphogénèse sheldrakienne est censée toucher toutes les formes auto-engendrées, des cristaux aux embryons, du langage à nos comportements. Vaste ambition, que les sciences modernes ne peuvent intégrer autrement que de façon heuristique (comme un jeu qui fait réfléchir). Acceptée telle quelle, la résonnance morphique remettrait en cause toutes les disciplines contemporaines. Dans son premier livre, Une nouvelle science de la vie (1981), le jeune biologiste de Cambridge essayait encore fougueusement de tout prouver par A plus B, citant moultes expériences frappantes, tant sur les cristaux que sur les rats ou sur les humains. Dans le second livre, Presence of the Past (1988, traduit La mémoire de l'Univers), on note une maturation. Avec son troisième livre enfin, The rebirth of Nature (1991, traduit L'âme de la nature), le chercheur s'offre un melting pot philosophique.

Wikipedia: Captured by Skeptics | Skeptical About Skeptics The Wikipedia Problem by the Editors Wikipedia is currently the area in which dogmatic skeptics are most successful and influential. One of these activist groups is called Guerrilla Skepticism on Wikipedia, founded by Susan Gerbic. Another leader of the online skeptical movement is Tim Farley, who runs the website Skeptical Software Tools. The situation is particularly bad in any areas to do with parapsychology, alternative and complementary medicine, and on the biography pages of scientists involved in investigating these areas. The Wikipedia skeptics work in teams (contrary to Wikipedia rules) and most are well trained. Although Wikipedia’s official policy is that articles should represent a neutral point of view, skeptics have infiltrated the administration of Wikipedia and have managed to get parapsychology defined as a pseudoscience, along with many aspects of alternative and complementary medicine. So beware! More Information: Who Killed Wikipedia?

An Artist Considers Levels in Matter — Art by Myrrh Fig. 6. Reductionism ad Absurdum, scratchboard, 8 x 10-in, 1983 However, the notion that "events are nothing until they are observed" struck me as being similar to reductionist statements I had heard all my life. This loop assigns an order to several assumptions that have been fruitful for scientific inquiry. The reductionist assertions fit together in my loop as follows: Man is nothing but an animal; an animal is nothing but matter; matter is nothing but atoms; atoms are nothing but particles; particles are nothing but events. Conjecture is based on the hierarchy of the structure of matter. Perhaps logical structures that are similar to each other exist at all levels. Mathematicians, who get aesthetic thrills from elegant simplicity in their work, find that even in cases where mathematics is used for description, as in physics, the choice of the more elegant of two formulations is often more accurate. Most unexpected was stumbling upon the strange loop. References and Notes 1. 2. 3. 4.

Rupert Sheldrake Rupert Sheldrake (né le 28 juin 1942), est un auteur parapsychologue anglais, ancien biochimiste, titulaire d'un doctorat (1967) en biochimie de l'université de Cambridge. [réf. nécessaire] Depuis 1981 ses écrits sont essentiellement centrés sur son concept de « résonance morphique »[n 1], qui reprend celui de « champ morphogénétique » (dont l’existence avait été suggérée, dans les années 1920, par Hans Spemann, Alexander Gurwitsch et Paul Weiss[réf. souhaitée]). Ses recherches incluent des thèmes comme le développement et le comportement chez les animaux et les végétaux, la télépathie, les perceptions extrasensorielles et la métaphysique. Biographie[modifier | modifier le code] Sheldrake, né et élevé à Newark-on-Trent dans le Nottinghamshire, reçoit son éducation secondaire au Workshop College puis étudie la biochimie au Clare College à Cambridge, et obtient son diplôme avec d’excellents résultats.

Rupert Sheldrake Online - Homepage A inovação pelos pares veio para ficar « Página 22 Ganham força os processos descentralizados, conduzidos por razões não necessariamente econômicas e com base em governança distante da que rege empresas e governos As empresas e os governos são cada vez menos as principais fontes da inovação tecnológica contemporânea. Essa constatação é feita por uma das maiores autoridades na pesquisa do tema, Eric von Hippel, professor do MIT, num paper em coautoria com seu colega de Harvard, Carliss Baldwin. Por maior que seja a importância dos investimentos das empresas e dos governos, esses dois protagonistas não dominam mais sozinhos a cena. Trata-se de uma conclusão contraintuitiva. Mas, segundo Baldwin e Von Hippel, novas tecnologias (que reduzem os custos de comunicação e que permitem design digitalizado e modularizado juntamente com acesso barato a computadores operando em rede) competem vantajosamente com a figura individualizada do produtor inovador em muitos setores da economia.

Fred Alan Wolf Fred Alan Wolf (born December 3, 1934) is an American theoretical physicist specializing in quantum physics and the relationship between physics and consciousness. He is a former physics professor at San Diego State University, and has helped to popularize science on the Discovery Channel. He is the author of a number of books about physics, including Taking the Quantum Leap (1981), The Dreaming Universe (1994), Mind into Matter (2000), and Time Loops and Space Twists (2011).[1] Wolf was a member in the 1970s, with Jack Sarfatti and others, of the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory's Fundamental Fysiks Group founded in May 1975 by Elizabeth Rauscher and George Weissmann.[2] His theories about the interrelation of consciousness and quantum physics were described by Newsweek in 2007 as "on the fringes of mainstream science. Biography[edit] Wolf's interest in physics began as a child when he viewed a newsreel depicting the world's first atomic explosion. Works[edit] Books Films Audio Dr. Notes[edit]

Sept Expériences qui peuvent changer le monde: Rupert Sheldrake Crítica da Razão Pura Origem: Wikipédia, a enciclopédia livre. A Crítica da Razão Pura (em alemão, Kritik der reinen Vernunft) é a principal obra de teoria do conhecimento do filósofo Immanuel Kant, cuja primeira edição (A) é de 1781, e a segunda (B), com alterações substanciais feitas pelo autor em determinadas seções, de 1787. A obra é considerada como um dos mais influentes trabalhos na história da filosofia, e dá início ao chamado idealismo alemão. Kant escreveu a CRP como a primeira de três "Críticas", seguida pela Crítica da Razão Prática (1788) e a Crítica do Juízo (1790). No prefácio à primeira edição Kant explicita o que ele quer dizer por crítica da razão pura: "Eu entendo aqui, contudo, não uma crítica dos livros e sistemas, mas sim da faculdade da razão em geral, com vistas a todos os conhecimentos que ela pode tentar atingir independentemente de toda a experiência" (A XII). Neste livro Kant tenta responder a primeira das três questões fundamentais da filosofia: "Que podemos saber? _______.
