    Glorious interview of Donald Hoffman by Michael Shermer

    ...Glorious because Hoffman gets to say a lot, and also because Shermer has so little to say in response. Hope you enjoy!

    Epigenetics, medicine, and consciousness (not matter) as fundamental

    I found this Thinking Allowed video very interesting. It touches on epigenetics, medicine and consciousness. I'm not saying I agree with everything said, but strikes me that prof. Kenneth R. Pelletier is much more open-minded than your average academic, and his credentials in this area seem...

    Psi Encyclopedia

    Just spotted this on Rupert Sheldrake's site: Psi Encyclopedia A new alternative to Wikipedia on the subject of psi research, produced by the Society for Psychical Research. It's news for me: I hope no one has mentioned it before. It looks like a possibly useful source if anyone wants to...

    The curious parallelism between EU theory and consciousness

    You can learn more about the EU (Electric Universe) theory from an excellent, well-illustrated free book here: It's excellent because it describes EU theory in terms that anyone can understand, and one thing that strikes me is the curious parallelism...

    Mod+ James M. Tour's amazing lecture on the astounding improbability of unguided abiogenesis

    I did chemistry and biochemistry to a certain level (1st year University as subsidiary subjects--my main subject was biology), and so I had a vague grasp of the detailed chemistry being talked about in this lecture. But no matter, even if a lot or even all of the chemistry escapes one, the...

    Anyone having problems editing their own posts?

    In the last couple of days, I've noticed that I can't edit my own posts: the option to do so is greyed out. Can anyone explain this? I'd really like to be able to edit my posts after posting just in case I pick up on grammatical errors. ***I've just edited this post. Interestingly, although the...

    Mod+ Joe Rogan interviews Rupert Sheldrake

    I found this very enjoyable. It's a wide-ranging, in-depth discussion with Rupert where I heard a lot I hadn't heard before. It's long, but very rewarding. Skip the opening ads and start at around 9:35.

    Mod+ A blast from the past

    I just stumbled across this Horizon video from the 1980's. It's by the BBC, and I'm struck by how fair and balanced it is compared with what you might see today: --which kind of got me thinking about how today, fundamentalism of all sorts is on the rise: religious and scientific. I wondered...

    Will Misogyny Bring Down The Atheist Movement?

    “I ran into Shermer in the hallway,” Smith said recently, speaking publicly for the first time about what happened that night. They began talking, and he invited her to a Scotch and cigar party at the Caesars Palace hotel. “He was talking about future articles we could write, and he mentioned...

    Cosmic habituation

    See: --and scroll down for the show entitled "Cosmic habituation" (you can stream it or download it). It appears that Sheldrake isn't the only one suspecting something may be going on. No mention of him in the podcast, but he is mentioned in the...
