Seven Experiments That Could Change the World: A Do-It-Yourself Guide to Revolutionary Science
How do pets know when their owners are coming home? How do they find people who have moved and left them behind? Can we really sense when someone is staring at us? Can a person feel the touch of a phantom arm?
These are common examples of some of the extraordinary abilities which human beings and animals all have, but which have been ignored, left unexplained by science. Celebrated biologist Rupert Sheldrake is the first scientist to develop simple experiments that anyone can perform to unravel the mysteries that science has refused to acknowledge. 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 the Seven Experiments Project to track people's results.
Readers will find themselves on a journey of discovery - of how migrating birds find their way across thousands of miles to continents they have never been to before, of how the earth's gravitational pull is anything but constant - that will continue long after they finish this book. Seven Experiments That Could Change the World represents a broad-based research program and an open invitation for widespread participation in creating new science.
