The sciences are pointing toward a new sense of a living world. The cosmos is like a developing organism, and so is our planet, Gaia. The laws of Nature may be more like habits. Partly as a result of the ‘hard problem’ of finding space for human consciousness in the materialist worldview, there is a renewed interest in panpsychist philosophies, according to which some form of mind, experience or consciousness is associated with all self-organizing systems, including atoms, molecules and plants. Maybe the sun is conscious, and so are other stars, and entire galaxies. If so, what about the mind of the universe as a whole? Rupert Sheldrake will explore some of the implications of this idea.
Rupert Sheldrake is a biologist and author of more than 85 scientific papers, and was named among the top 100 Global Thought Leaders for 2013. He studied natural sciences at Cambridge University, where he was a Scholar of Clare College, took a double first class honours degree and was awarded the University Botany Prize in 1963. Dr Sheldrake then studied philosophy and the history of science at Harvard before returning to Cambridge, where he took a Ph.D. in biochemistry in 1967.
He is the author of 13 books, and in 2012 he published ‘The Science Delusion’. This book examines the ten dogmas of modern science, and shows how they can be turned into questions that open up new vistas of scientific possibility. It received the Book of the Year Award from the British Scientific and Medical Network. His most recent book: ‘Ways To Go Beyond, And Why They Work’ was published in 2019, and looks at seven spiritual practices that are personally transformative and have scientifically measurable effects.

My father was a believer in hard science. He was basically a rocket engineer. He had no time for spirituality and thought it hogwash. He was quite surprised when his mother and brother would come and visit him while his body failed due to cancer. They both passed away years earlier. He described to me some of his experiences, and he had all the classic hits, too. He experienced time phenomenon, he would swear he was somewhere else for days when he never left his bed. There was a distinct "guide" that was with him. Dad didn't like him. He manifested as a security guard and wouldn't let my dad leave, even pulled a gun on him once. He had visitations from deceased family members. He was calm. Very calm for understanding his situation. He didn't want to die but there was no panic in him at all. He knew he was going to die. In 45 years it was the only time he ever called just to talk. He knew.... Anyhow if a man like my father can have the classic near death experience, that tells me there is something else going on. As well, i had a desperate urge to get a haircut. I probably get one every 3 to 6 months. I drove across town to the only barber I could find, I was just determined. My dad called me less than a minute after I left the barber. It was a video call. He never did that before and ad I said it was probably only the third time he called in 45 years.There are things in the Universe we don't understand and just don't perceive in our daily lives, but they are there. There is something that connects us, I know. It made me get a haircut.

I love how before the 17th century the prevailing world view was all life had consciousness, including animals & plants, planets, etc. Very unfortunate the subsequent mechanized view reducing animals to machines with no souls. Thank goodness people like yourself Dr. Sheldrake are resurrecting the subject for a greater understanding.

I agree with you that it is unfortunate that the mechanized view of animals and plants became the prevailing worldview in the centuries after the 17th century. This view reduced animals to machines with no souls, and it led to a great deal of suffering for animals. I am hopeful that the work of Dr. Sheldrake and others will help to resurrect the subject of consciousness in animals and plants. I believe that it is important to understand that all living things are interconnected, and that we should treat all living things with respect and compassion.

The awesome thing I did for myself was to turn my backyard into a mini forest. I never felt this good and somewhat spiritual and closer to the universe. I kid you not! I even see bright shooting lights on my wall in the middle of the night. The room was dark . Anyways, my mini forest consists of five 30 footer Japanese Maple Trees, one 30 footer Magnolia Tree, 12 Pine Trees about fifty feet tall, Alberta Spruce, Lilacs Trees, Smokey Bush Trees, Walnut Tree, Japanese Apple Tree, climbing trumpet flower and birds and annual flowers. I love my backyard. When I feel sad I walk barefoot in the backyard and hug my trees. I feel good after. I have the happy feeling. Thank you everybody who’s here in the comment section. Life might be difficult for all of us but there is always bright light at the end of the tunnel .❤❤❤

JESUS IS LORD The purpose of life is to worship, praise and serve God! TRUE Christianity is Relationship with God. NOT MANMADE RELIGION. Christianity is from Jesus Christ. Jesus created mankind. Religion is mans word. God is INFINITELY (in the literal sense) BETTER THAN ALL THINGS!! 1. believe fully and sincerely in Jesus Christ, the Savior of all humans from sin. 2. Truly Repent of every sin, for example say "Jesus, please forgive me for all sins." 3. Become baptized (recommended, not needed but it helps), and BE SPIRITUALLY REBORN (aka Born Again).

A work already done centuries ago. They are only rediscovering it. Consciousness is core of spirituality in hinduism. When you raise your consciousness, you see the beauty,and life in everything. The sun also. My mother is a woman to you,a female. But to me she is all my emotions,joy, love, feelings. This can't be shown. Its unscientific. Because science rejects emotions

Through the years, over 3 or 4 decades, your way of thinking moves closer to what's in the process of re-membering in our human consciousness now, as I observe this. You're not only a very intelligent scientist and clear speaker, but also a man with humour, and joy for life. A very British gentleman, God bless you!

In a world where mental illness is becoming a norm, meaning can become the panacea to that illness. Taking the viewpoint of a conscious universe brings a potential for meaning in the struggle of living. As a person who has taken psychedelics, I can say wholeheartedly, that they helped me discover the opportunity to become a better human. You, where you are right now, are part of the whole and the whole loves, and that is why this cosmos exists.

Tell me about it! Taking lots of notes here using Jim Kwiks' system which I've found to be the most effective at absorbing and processing information. I've had many similar experiences with other forms of consciousness, most recently through spirituality and breathwork which brought me here. I think because of the dualistic dogma of western science we have been completely disconnected from all this and now through technology and the internet we're finding our way back to our true nature...

Oh my, this is so liberating! I never quite understood how it has become taboo to say something like the Sun could be a god or that trees have consciousness. I spent so much of life under the spell of scientific materialism that I'd managed to doubt all else. The consequence of the materialistic view is that it promotes the primacy of humans. How selfish! Thank you for making me feel ok with the spiritual world again.

@Santhosh Gopinath Human consciousness as category of consciousness, need not be limited to planet earth. I personally find that the Vedic concept of life existing on every planet, housed in the form of the predominant elements of that planet - like we find on earth - as very plausible. If humankind are custodians, it would imply respect for the idea that we did not create the universe, but should appreciate it's creation and facilities offered, and respect it as the property of the creator.

Beautiful talk, thank you. Consciousness is the ultimate ground of existence, it is the cause of everything. And It’s not personal. You can’t use your consciousness or observe or reduce consciousness because consciousness is the very source of observation. So consciousness will never by an object. Always will be the source of observation itself. Also consciousness is not static, is completely dynamic. His dynamic aspect is reality.

Our great grandparents would have simply and bashfully smiled if they heard this talk. Our universe is all about consciousness and the 90% unseen! Our human minds are so powerful that collective human thoughts do produce very visible results … what’s seen in our society today, ie upheavals, restlessness, political chaos … are results of many similarly collective psyches. Ever hear the saying, “society gets the politicians they deserve?” … “Watch your thoughts, they become words … words actions …” Everything one does is recorded in the universe! “Everything we do in life echoes in eternity.” ( from the movie Gladiators). I talk to plants, the birds & the bees, and yes, even my car … because I truly can and because everything is truly connected. This is how great & wonderful God’s universe just is! 🙏

My family lived within walking distance of the Pacific Coast in Central America in the 1950’s. One evening, we went to the swimming area where the shark net concentrated the crowd. I wandered off beyond the net to an area that had no footprints. I was four, maybe five. I looked back to make sure my family was still in sight, and I looked down and saw my footprints. Just mine, no others, and a thought came into my head - Does the sand know I’m here? Maybe it just knows that *someone* has been walking across.” In 1974 my future wife an I were driving across the New Mexico desert. There were small, pretty cacti everywhere. She wanted one, but I had no idea how I would dig one up. I thought maybe I could use a tire tool, a flat rock, or a stick. We finally saw a small one about a hundred feet from the road, just on the other side of a barbed wire fence. There on the ground, almost touching the cactus, was a very old shovel. It didn’t look “store bought,” more like it came from a blacksmith shop a long time ago, and most of the wooden handle was rotted off. But it worked. I thought about taking it with me but it didn’t seem right. There’s a wide, four-lane highway there now, so maybe somebody else found it when the road crews came through. In 1984 my girlfriend (I got divorced) and I were in Bloomington Indiana, sitting behind a 1973 Ford LTD, on a motorcycle. That car probably weighed over 5,000 pounds. All along the road there were signs that said “NO PASSING ON THE SHOULDER.” I’m 70 years old - I’ve never gotten a traffic ticket. I’m almost obsessive-compulsive about following the rules… But, a few seconds after stopping behind that big Ford, a kind of wordless thought screamed in my mind *MOVE* so, I passed on the shoulder. As we were passing, the Ford lurched forward into the car directly in front, pushing that car into the next one, and we heard the sound of metal being bent, crunched, and twisted. Somebody in what looked like a Toyota had slammed into the Ford, apparently without even hitting the brakes. Yeah, breaking the Law saved two lives. There have been a few incidents of uncommon thoughts and very against-the-odds events in my life, not enough to think I’m psychic or anything, just enough to make me wonder if something’s going on. But none of them compare to the strangest thing I ever SAW, with my brother standing next to me, who saw the same thing. Nobody believes me when I speak of it, except the most rabid UFO hounds. And it was really no more than a pinpoint of light in the sky, which, at first we thought was a satellite, doing impossible shit - as in, against the laws of physics.

I like to define consciousness as that which protects its internal environment from its external environment. This would then include the earth, sun and galaxy as conscious entities as each has an electromagnetic shield that protects its internal environment from the harmful radiation of the consciousness it is within. This also includes the conscious organs, tissue, cells and atoms that reside within our conscious bodies.

Excellent presentation! I recommend exploring the ancient Indian systems of thought, the Hindu Sankhya philosophy as well as Jain beliefs and cosmology. In both traditions, life itself, ranging from microscopic life forms to everything else alive, is a magnificent blend of Consciousness (called Purusha) and Earth/Energy (called Prakriti, pronounced Pruk-ri-thi). Each of the two components really cannot function without the other. Makes sense, no? :) These traditions are about a couple of thousand years old; Jainism is likely over 2500 years old. Both indicate that there are INFINITE such life forms, and neither of them talk about a creator being. In that sense they are both ATHEISTIC! But the Yoga philosophy/tradition, adds a creator-manager being called Ishvara (Eesh-vara, Isha for short, Issa in Arabic). Is it coincidence that the ancient Greek name for Jesus was Iesous...so similar to Isha! NOT a coincidence! Gnostic Christianity was/is just amazing: a blend of Paganism/Hinduism as understood by Jewish mystics. So pathetically sad that the Church completely corrupted their concepts and understanding.

Just to say thank you for the theory. I believe the new findings regarding the electron diffusion within the atom during the atomic pulse , the electron diffuses within only half the atom , not fully random orbital. This I believe shows the galaxy is feeling for the external factors as well as gauging its internal growth factors. As this grows to us the higher conscience is feeling to and through us so some are truly favoured by the light. Thanks again , Daniel

It is nice to see scientists beginning to combine observation of the world and larger universe, perhaps neuroscientists, and history, with mathematics (E=Mc2), to figure out that consciousness is the source of all being. That there is an inner knowledge and order. Matter is just concentrated energy vibrating at a specific frequency, our bodies biological suits to house our consciousness while in the body. I am 62 but I don't feel any different than say in my 20's. I have collected memories of life experiences, and my body slowly aging, but my identity itself has not aged at all, no changes. Anyone who has been to an open-casket funeral of a family member or friend knows the body is there in the casket, but the person is gone, their consciousness.

I never really thought about it much but he's right... My beloved science did in fact try to crush soul and spirit right out of all things. It didn't even stop at us, the so called highest beings known in the universe. Even we were just clever machines. In a way my lifelong love of the sciences was my spiritual side's worst enemy, a weapon fashioned to destroy anything magical that tried to take root in my mind. Fortunately, my mom was a new age spiritualist nutcase and I quickly transcended everything she knew and taught me. Now I contain both realities in my heart and mind, and while rabidly exploring the sciences, I also rabidly explore the spiritual and metaphysical. To me, the spiritual and metaphysical are not enemies of the sciences; they're just REALLY hard to classify and quantify. To me, that makes these nagging, bizarre, yet absolutely undeniable things all the more interesting. To me, they're as fascinating and worthy of study as radio and electricity was to Tesla, as magnetism and capacitance were to Faraday, as nuclear processes were to Curie. All of these things were just magic to the world until brilliant minds picked apart how they worked. That's what the metaphysical is to me; just a really advanced mystery clumsily hidden behind the curtains of reality, begging to be picked apart and understood.

What a kind and illuminating talk. Thank you- you are our new priest of the mysterrium .
I have long suspected, independently as far as I know, that the conscious entity we call self is a consumer, not a producer of consciousness. Our minds give us access to the universe. Our level of consciousness is proportional to that access. I suspect this because although consciousness can be quantified through observation, it cannot be located. Oddly enough, to some, it is difficult to define. I suspect that is because most people look in the wrong place, and cannot conceive of a definition of that which is not in place. No matter how perfectly my keys fit in my pocket, and even if my pocket exists solely to hold my keys, my pocket is not the original source nor the definitive location of my keys.

If anyone is interested I passed to the other side once. I saw the light and had the life review as most people have heard about and I was told I would not be allowed to return with the secret of the universe because I wouldn't want to stay alive. But I was allowed to return with the memory of my reaction to what was revealed to me. I remember being shocked at how simple it was. I remember saying.... Its right in front of our faces and we can't see it! Like when they say you can't see the Forrest through the trees. The only thing I can compare it to is like waking up from a dream.🤔 (Edit) UPDATE: so I've been studying physics and I've realized what it means when I said it's right n front of our faces and we can't see it. It's because there is much of the universe happening in the atomic and subatomic realm...in this life we see, we are existing in the refection of a mirror that is true reality.👈

I suppose you could say that in the universe there is one great energy that exists within all. And that energy is intelligence and consciousness. This energy becomes self conscious of itself when it's atomic complexity is that of a human being. I'm assuming that our energy will continuously evolve and take on more complex forms and become what cannot be understood with our current level of consciousness.

I've been asked a few times in my life, usually by my teachers, how it was that I could be so spiritual/religious and also be so enamored and interested in math and the sciences. And my answer has always been the same. It was nothing that anyone had to tell me but something that I just simply knew, that science was the study of how God works and does things and the more I learned about nature, the world, and the universe, the more I was convinced of the existence of a devine creator. Thank you so much for the talk, Dr.

English is not my first language! Generally, different ways to look at reality and explain it are like different languages in which the message is conveyed. For example: many religions and believes think that the human prospective is capable of influencing reality, on the other hand there is quantum physics that states the same thing (the observer is capable of defining the position and the entity of a wave/particle). Ultimately every language at its core says the same thing, it's just a different way of saying it.

I've been playing with the notion of non-organic 'intelligence' for decades, along with inorganic life forms, on a hypothesis of mind as an emergent phenomenon in nature, & as a meta-homeostatic processes. The inscrutability of our own intelligence is evidence of the possible difficulty in recognizing such life forms hidden in the prevalence of homeostatic phenomena in physics, not just in biological nature.

There is a substantial difference between consciousness and self-consciousness.

I would also add to this that in my experience the power of prayer also has effects on the outcome of crisis ordeals such as undergoing surgery or rehabilitative therapies. I am certain that prayers and good wishes led to a very successful colon operation I had undergone. The surgeon told me afterwards that the operation had gone "textbook" with no glitches. I could feel the calming effect that those prayers had on me and the confidence they projected inside me that all will be OK.

As a man who has devoted his whole life to the most clear headed science, to the study of matter, I can tell you as a result of my research about atoms this much: There is no matter as such. All matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force which brings the particle of an atom to vibration and holds this most minute solar system of the atom together. We must assume behind this force the existence of a conscious and intelligent mind. This mind is the matrix of all matter. ~ Max Planck

Xfactor X The Vedic tradition unambiguously places consciousness as primary; as the source of all objective creation. Aside from the Upanishads, other vedic texts articulate exactly how the absolute, unmanifest subjective reality of pure consciousness, through it's Self-referral dynamics, creates what we experience in the manifest universe. The Human nervous system can locate and observe this purely subjective, ultimate basis for creation....not as a feat of the intellect, but through the ability to transcend the finest relative aspects of creation and experience pure subjectivity...Being.

@Nickolas Gaspar You sound like a fellow Dillahunty fan. I've gone off Dillahunty a little bit because he's gone a bit too woke. Wokism is itself a religion so Dillahunty seems to have reverted to his old religious tendencies. Also, this point about "believing as many true things as possible". Obviously it's good to "want" to know the truth. But that doesn't mean that it's always necessarily good to always know the truth. For instance, if knowing some truth would only lead to bad outcomes for everyone concerned then I'd rather not know. That's why our unconscious minds sometimes prevent us from remembering things. Some people can have no recollection of a car accident they were in because the unconscious knows that conscious recall of it would serve no purpose other than to cause unnecessary psychological harm. Ultimately it's the unconscious that decides what truths we do or do not consciously "know". There's no point knowing that your religion is false if knowing this means that your life is going to be ruined (assuming that this would actually be the case). That's why it's so hard to dissuade some people from their false beliefs - because doing so may not actually benefit them.

I figured there's only two explanations (a) Our history is missing a lot of parts to it. (b) there's a hive mind consciousness that exists in humans or the universe that we are either unaware of or refuse to acknowledge its existence.

What somewhat annoys me about Sheldrake, repeating it several times that _'' you can't talk about these experiences, cause they'll think you're crazy''._ It's a whiny kind of accusing _''the materialist''_ (also meant as a denigrating term hinting at _'closed mindedness'_ with a: _'' you just can't reason with folks like that''_ air of superiority about it. In fact: The exact opposite is true; and all sorts of studies and experiments are done to try and find out _scientifically_ what's going on when such experiences happen. (like putting highly trained zen-masters in MRI brain-scanners). No-one is denying that _'other states of consciousness'_ happen. What is generally dismissed as unscientific (which only means Sheldrake is jumping the gun with it, _not_ that it's or can't be true, but simply that the one (experiencing an other state of consciousness) _doesn't_ imply, show, or prove _''that their consciousness is part of something greater than themselves,''_ let alone that these experiences, or the fact that ancient beliefs talk about the sun and the planets as conscious entities prove anything. And he totally missing the plot when he says that those, supposedly narrow minded scientists who supposedly just call you crazy, when they (rightfully) say that experiencing those altered states of consciousness _doesn't_ prove a connection to another, greater kind of consciousness from outside of themselves, that it's those scientists turn to prove him wrong! When a (formally) well known, respected and renowned scientist, suddenly seems to have forgotten that it's always the one making the claim to present evidence for it; that it's impossible to prove a negative (just like you can't prove (a) god(s) doesn't exist, and thus that it's the job of the person _claiming_ its existence to provide evidence), it's no more than logical his former highly regarded reputation has significantly diminished over the years. And him, repeatedly cry-babying about that, blaming the critique on all kinds of character flaws in those expressing it, and hinting at it, being a forbidden topic (while, like I said, the research in that field is done in all sorts of ways and in many different places), is a bloody shame and just sad. Anyway; I've done all sorts of drugs in my youth; made all sorts of the wildest trips, without moving a foot. And I still meditate daily, in which I sometimes have an entire conversation with the pole star, and some of my friends love to here about it; amazed what the human mind can come up with. Not once did anyone called me crazy. I'm sure, though, they would start getting concerned if I started proclaiming I'm the pole star's chosen one to channel the ancient wisdom of its mind into mine to tell the rest of humanity _The Truth_ of life's origin, meaning and purpose and teach them all _The Only_ true path to love and happiness. If that happens I HOPE they'd try to get me to seek psychiatric help. All the best to you too

When I learned of the theory of panpsychism it occurred to me that maybe our universe (all universes?) exists within a living creature, just at a super sub atomic scale. And, since, we are then literally in a living being, everything in that being is "conscious," just like everything in our bodies is. Time to our "host" would be on a vastly different scale where our billions of years might simply be a moment to them. Any physicists out there? Is this notion completely outside the bounds of possibility??

The Universe IS conscious, and it communicates with you via synchronicity. Synchronicity IN TANDEM with the "little voice" inside you. However, the universe, for whatever reason, prefers order & love. And, you'll find the universe awfully quiet if you perpetuate negativity, chaos, or hate. One thing it took me a LONG-TIME to understand is the following: Being kind, loving, and altruistic usually comes with a personal cost, so it almost NEVER seems worth it. Yet, this is the only way to truly "walk a higher path."
Boris B
Boris B 8 ай бұрын
Tell me: what comes at a higher personal cost: perpetuating negativity, chaos and hate, or being generally kind and compassionate (I don't see any good in altruism), all of which have nothing to do with being naive and okay to being taken advantage of, since opening yourself to be victimized contributes to turns others into culprits, which isn't a loving thing to do. And on the universe, preferring order is like saying that the earth is the way it is to provide a place to live for the plants and animals we find on it. In reality it's the other way around: Those for whom the environment can't maintain them, seize to exist, so what remains are those who can cope with the situation. Then: synchronicity isn't a form of communication. If 2 hailstones of the same size fall from the same cloud to the ground at the same speed next to each other, it isn't due to a preferred order, but because they're both bound by the same physics involved.

@Boris B I respect, and moreover UNDERSTAND, your beliefs and observations my friend. For, I'm keenly aware your viewpoint is, by far, the more logical and rational intellectual approach. However, certain (synchronicity infused) events have REPEATEDLY transpired in my life, and many of them utterly DEFY probability. I know you won't/can't accept that statement. You SHOULDN'T accept it. These things happened to me, and even I can scarcely accept them. But, as an educated and intelligent person, I've studied/contemplated these events at length, without bias, and that's how I've arrived at my conclusions. I have NO DESIRE to believe these things, as a person with a mathematically driven mind. I'd MUCH prefer to believe as you do. I hope this finds you well.

Synchonicities - these are personal things, events, connected by a meaning, that is understandable only by the observer.

In the beginning there was a vibration, and this vibration had such energy to it, that through it all things were formed and would be found. Much akin to an idea or an opinion that occurs suddenly in the mind without thinking, yet corresponding to some distinct entity essential in feature to what it was, this vibration went by a name. Its name was Thought and Love was its only way of thinking. And such was Love's thinking within Thought, that it had all the strength and vitality that was needed to sustain to the fullest degree, every physical and mental activity required to make things whole, yet not entirely holy save but one much needed thing. Although Thought asked of Love to lend to it its voice, Love at first said nothing but waited, because that is what Love does; it waits. Thought could see that Love was thinking, and it seemed to Thought that perhaps Love knew not quite what to say. And as Time passed by as it invariably does, Thought began to wonder why if Love was everything of meaning, it had no meaning to answer. Looking again to Love as Love thought not to look elsewhere, there was still nothing there, just as there is nothing more serenely still than Love as Peace it lends us, a thought our thinking has yet to truly know. Therefore, and as was Thought’s wont, it began to think again: "If Love answers not then it has no needs, as would Reason have it be that neither does Love ask for anything." As Love remained silent, and more silent even still, Thought looked about the seemingly empty space within which it had found itself vibrating, and where for Love as is Love's promise the premise of Hope (and Hope's premise Love's promise in Life) nothing is ever held not true. At that moment, and for but the briefest period of time beyond Time itself more singular than was any period that went before, Thought became so fully aware of something as fact to understand it clearly and without condition; the most beautiful relationships we can have with each other, they are centred in Love, and with nothing in between that anything is split in two. Once realised, Thought began to accommodate all thinking to this as so should you, and fears no longer entered the mind of man, since it was never part of Love's overall plan.
