What a fascinating TED talk, have a look and then see my comments below.
What a fascinating talk by Rupert Sheldrake, on how he perceives Science to be quite delusional when you break down the essential Dogma of Science. Having watched the entire TED talk, by Mr Sheldrake, I must say that he certainly raises a lot of very interesting questions.
The reason I say "he perceives", obviously because I want to make it clear that they are his theories, ideas and perceptions. To say they are the truth, would be as idiotic as to as that Science is truth. But I must say, that alot of what he talks about and discusses rings truthfully "for me", and certainly resonates with me. Is something i would like to delve into further, and explore more.
Leading me to my next questions, Rupert Sheldrake suggests that perhaps everything is evolving and changing, even the speed of light, or gravity. Why not? Do the answers to everything always need to be fixed? Perhaps that is just it, everything, including us is continuously evolving. When we try to pinpoint it, and say what it is, we miss out on the nature of it - that it is ever evolving.
I almost think that we live in a world, where to change is to suffer. But that's not the case, at least not for me. Yes, it certainly is harder, why? Well, because I was raised to believe that change is bad, and constant unchanging effects, daily occurrences, ideals or beliefs are what what keeps us / me comfortable. I guess that is true, because by not challenging my beliefs and ideas, I cannot evolve I cannot change into something better, something greater. Because I'm willing to say, "Wait, maybe I'm wrong, I could learn something from this new idea. Let me look into it, and see how it works for me."
Maybe just maybe, we need to embrace change, we need to embrace evolving ideas, poke and prod them, apply them to our own lives and see how they affect us. And through this willingness to embrace, rather than repel and push away we may find we grow so much faster than we ever believed possible.
I have certainly, shifted off the scientific aspect of the discussion and swerved wholly into a more philosophical road. But then, that is what I do enjoy exploring and reflecting on.
Anyways, I may add to this post at a later date, when I have allowed the ideas to marinate longer. I would love to hear your thoughts on the subject, as continued discussion and debate is what
