Noted British scientist-author Rupert Sheldrake is one of many leading authors and experts whose insights are available on the new Wise Insights Forum website at https://wiseinsightsforum.com.
Sheldrake provided the editorial team of Wise Insights Forum with a summary of his highly acclaimed book, The Science Delusion, also sold in the U.S. as Science Set Free. In the book he challenges ten outdated claims of traditional science which new discoveries have cast into doubt, including:
- “Everything is essentially mechanical. Dogs, for example, are complex mechanisms, rather than living organisms with goals of their own. Even people are machines, ‘lumbering robots’, in Richard Dawkins’ vivid phrase, with brains that are like genetically programmed computers.
- “All matter is unconscious. It has no inner life or subjectivity or point of view. Even human consciousness is an illusion produced by the material activities of brains.
- “The total amount of matter and energy is always the same (with the exception of the Big Bang, when all the matter and energy of the universe suddenly appeared).
- “The laws of nature are fixed. They are the same today as they were at the beginning, and they will stay the same forever.”
