Banyen's Description: 

Visionary biologist Rupert Sheldrake, widely known as the father of “morphic resonance,” is the first scientist to develop simple experiments that anyone can perform to unravel the mysteries that science has refused to acknowledge. How do pets know when their owners are coming home? How do they find people who have moved and left them behind? How do we sense when someone is staring at us? Can a person feel the touch of a phantom arm? How do birds find their way across thousands of miles to continents they have never been to before? These are common examples of some of the extraordinary abilities that all living creatures have, but which have been ignored and left unexplained by science. Other experiments involve “the organization of termites,” “the variability of the ‘fundamental constants’,” and “the effects of experimenters’ expectations.” These seven simple experiments, now being performed all over the world, could revolutionize our understanding of reality, and the
Institute of
Noetic Sciences
has begun a Seven Experiments project to track people’s results.

Experiments are ways of questioning nature. They can be used to decide between rival hypotheses, by allowing nature herself to speak through the data...

This book draws attention to areas of research neglected as a result of conventional habits of thought, where relatively simple experiments could yield rich returns, with extraordinary opportunities for breakthroughs worthy of the name.

Seven Experiments That Could Change the World is a broad-based research program and an open invitation for widespread participation in creating new science. Readers will find themselves on a journey of discovery that will continue long after they finish this book.

“In any generation, there are only a handful of people whose ideas contain the possibility of significantly altering the course of human history. Dr. Rupert Sheldrake is such a person. His ideas offer a real chance for humanity to regain its spiritual bearings. We have been blessed with a rare genius.” —Larry Dossey, author of Reinventing Medicine



Among Rupert  Sheldrake’s other books are The Rebirth of Nature, A New Science of Life, and The Presence of the Past.
