Banyen's Description: 

Nearly everyone has experienced the feeling of being watched or had their stare result in a glance in their direction. The phenomenon has been cited throughout history in nearly every culture, along with other commonplace paranormal occurrences such as premonitions and telepathy.

In this newly updated edition of The Sense of Being Stared At, Sheldrake shares his more than 25 years of research into telepathy, the power of staring, remote viewing, precognition, and animal premonitions. Drawing on more than 5,000 case histories, 4,000 questionnaire responses, and the results of experiments on staring, thought transference, phone telepathy, and other phenomena carried out with more than 20,000 people as well as reports and data from dozens of independent research teams, Sheldrake shows that these unexplained human abilities—such as the sense of being stared at—are not paranormal but normal, part of our biological nature.

Instead of thinking of minds as confined to brains, I suggest they involve extended fields of influence that stretch out far beyond brains and bodies… There is a great deal of evidence that attention and intention can extend far beyond the brains in which they are centered.

He reveals that telepathy depends on social bonds and traces its evolution from the connections between members of animal groups such as flocks, schools, and packs. Sheldrake shows that our minds and intentions extend beyond our brains into our surroundings with invisible connections that link us to each other, to the world around us, and even to the future.

I explore evidence for the existence of a seventh sense, and hence for the extended mind… I discuss what extended mind is, how it works, and how it helps to account for the seventh sense. I suggest that the mind stretches out through mental fields. Through these fields, animals and people can both sense things at a distance and act at a distance.

Among Rupert Sheldrake’s other highly intriguing books are Science Set Free, The Presence of the Past, and Morphic Resonance.
