“God is there from the start in people’s consciousness… I don’t think many people arrive at a discovery of God through reason alone.”
– Dr. Rupert Sheldrake
Preface from Editor Grahame Mackenzie
With us today is Dr. Rupert Sheldrake, biologist and author of more than 80 scientific papers and ten books. Dr. Sheldrake was among the top 100 Global Thought Leaders for 2013 as ranked by the Duttweiler Institute, Zurich, Switzerland’s leading think tank. He studied natural sciences at Cambridge University and took a double first class honours degree, then went on to study philosophy and history of science at Harvard University before returning to Cambridge, where he earned a Ph.D. in biochemistry.
His most recent book, The Science Delusion, received the Book of the Year Award from the British Scientific and Medical Network. In it he examines the ten dogmas of modern science and shows how they can be turned into questions that open up new ideas of scientific possibility.
Dr. Sheldrake is perhaps best known for his morphic field theory, hypothesizing that, through a telepathic effect or sympathetic vibration, an event or act can lead to similar events or acts in the future, or an idea conceived in one mind can then arise in another.
However, Spirit Today sought the insights of Dr. Sheldrake for a very different reason: ‘God’, the ‘Source of All Being’, the ‘God-force’ – call it what you will – and we hoped to learn of the good doctor’s best definitions based on his private meditations and lifetime of scholarly research; after all, this is one of the most discussed topics in history but still lies unprocessed in the minds of many.
Looking for a fresh perspective on this ‘Source of All Consciousness’ is Wayne Becker who created this interview.
What’s your best sense of this ‘Creative Force’ that some call ‘God’? Let’s venture into some unploughed ground with Dr. Sheldrake. click to continue
