The Sense of Being Stared at Rupert Sheldrake proves that our minds and intentions extend into our surroundings with invisible connections that link us to each other and the world. His 25 years of research into telepathy, the power of staring, remote viewing, precognition, and animal premonitions draws on case histories, questionnaire responses, and the results of experiments carried out with more than 20,000 people.

Experiments on the non-locality of consciousness 3 octobre 2013
Par Dr. H. A. Jones - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
The Sense of Being Stared At, and other aspects of the extended mind, by Rupert Sheldrake, Hutchinson, 2003, 384 ff

In this book, author Rupert Sheldrake makes the case for regarding phenomena such as telepathy and premonition as perfectly normal human faculties rather than paranormal or supernatural events. He suggests that minds - and the human mind especially - may extend far beyond the confines of the brain. Sheldrake was formerly a Professor of Biology at the University of Cambridge and is now a Fellow of the Institute of Noetic Sciences in California.

He begins his discussion here by showing how science continually develops with new discoveries and new ideas. He describes what is often called extrasensory perception (ESP) as the seventh sense, maintaining that the ability to detect electromagnetic fields by animals should be called the `sixth sense'. He also regards personal experiences as valid evidence for the existence of these phenomena - after all, readings of ammeters and spectrophotometers have also to be made and recorded by human observations, and the fields of law and medicine rely heavily on personal accounts. Darwin's evidence for the law of evolution came largely from personal anecdotes. Sheldrake has done for `seventh sense' observations what marine biologist Alister Hardy did for spiritual experiences. The mind may be centred in the brain, but it is not confined to it.

So much for the Introduction: in the opening chapters of Part I Sheldrake gives many examples of telepathy, often between family members or, he suggests, between those playing team sports. He reviews some of the early work on psychic experiences by scientists in the 19th century. Of course, telepathic interaction with animals is included in this section. Entomologist William Morton Wheeler suggested a similar explanation for communication within communities of social insects, schools of fish or flocks of birds. This is discussed in a later chapter in this section, though Wheeler's name is not mentioned. This phenomenon leads Sheldrake to conclude that `the psyche is not confined to the body during life'.

In Part II, The Power of Attention, we begin with a chapter on `The Sense of Being Stared At'. While many of the accounts are anecdotal, there are results given also of statistically significant organized surveys, and a refutation of standard arguments against significance that such `feelings' are examples of paranoia, arise from reasons other than visual focus, such as movement in the subject, or are statistically insignificant in comparison with the number of occasions when no such awareness arises. This kind of sensitivity is clearly important for animals for self-preservation, and for humans in wild territory inhabited by predatory animals, and Sheldrake covers these situations in one of the following chapters, including research by himself and others. As with other forms of telepathy, the results are most convincing when subject and starer have some kind of emotional rapport.

An accurate interpretation of the nature of vision has been a challenge to philosophers and physiologists for over 2000 years: Sheldrake reviews the evidence and provides a theory of his own of `the extended mind'. This leads us on to Part III on Remote Viewing and the experiences that some people have of events occurring at a different (past or future) time or in a different place. Part of Sheldrake's evidence for this lies in the senses that many species of animals have of catastrophic natural events, like earthquakes, tsunami or volcanic eruptions, but there are several accounts of human premonitions of disaster too. This leads on to Part IV which explores possible rationally coherent explanations of how the `seventh sense' might work. There are copious Notes, a Bibliography of further reading and a good Index to complete the book.

Stared Straight 8 septembre 2013

This book is quite fascinating, and very detailed. You have the points of view of a believer of the power of the mind, and references to the skeptics out there. This book uses real case work from not just a few 100 cases, but thousands of cases to establish a baseline on the power of the mind. Everyone has them, and yet no one fully understands or utilizes their senses.Really easy reading for those who have a hard time with most scholar reading, so I give this an easy two thumbs up. It is detailed enough to help you read through it without being boring and dry. Nothing obtuse in its delivery, just straight to the point work.

A Hugely Fascinating Book 18 novembre 2014
Par Thomas C. Hamilton - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
The Sense of Being Stared At is Rupert Sheldrake's most comprehensive case for so-called "paranormal phenomena" published yet. The first subject treated in the book is just that: the sense of being stared at. It's one of the most common feelings that people have- over 80% of Americans reported having felt it. I remember feeling it when I was a child and wondering aloud how it could be that I felt someone staring at me, given that my sight is inside my brain. Even though I was raised in an evangelical home, I had absorbed materialist assumptions from my culture. Sheldrake presents strong experimental evidence that the sense of being stared at is real, not illusory. Even without material input, one really can detect the presence of a gaze across the back of one's neck. He even documents how his experiments were repeated by skeptics. I read this book with an open mind, and was prepared to dismiss Sheldrake if his critics raised legitimate points. I found the opposite- I have probably now read every single article online critiquing Sheldrake's methodology in his experiments, and they all fall flat. Many of these articles attempt to explain away data the skeptics themselves produced.

After having come to this conclusion about the legitimacy of Sheldrake's research on the sense of being stared at, I moved through the rest of the book with more openness. Sheldrake systematically dismantles one's Western disdain for traditional cultures. One chapter takes a look at the "evil eye" phenomenon known independently to many different people groups and presents some interesting evidence that it has some basis in reality. He explores alternative theories of sight, demonstrating that vision involves not only an inward reception of light, but also an outward projection of consciousness. This provides some metaphysical rest- the world I'm living in is not a mere simulation in my brain. I am really seeing the world.

Sheldrake then turns his vision towards telepathic phenomena. Like the sense of being stared at, we've all experienced one form or another of telepathic phenomena. Most people report having thought of someone, and then immediately receiving a call from that person. This is typically summarily dismissed as a result of coincidence and selective memory. Indeed, this is precisely how I (never having formally been a materialist!) condescendingly dismissed anyone who mentioned an experience like this to me. But Sheldrake presents mountains of data demonstrating the reality of this phenomenon. As with the sense of being stared at, skeptical critics are reduced to pitiful muttering and scraping around the edges of Sheldrake's data. But when one looks at the raw numbers (replicated by skeptics), there's simply no question: this really happens.

This is but a taste of the full scope of Sheldrake's work. Sheldrake goes on to discuss precognition, animals who know their owners are coming home, forebodings, remote viewing, and much more. But the point that he hammers home throughout the whole work is that it is a category error to dismiss these phenomena as "paranormal." Given that the majority of people have had experiences like those described above, it appears that they are quite normal! They are only paranormal for a dogmatic, pseudo-intellectual materialism which is more concerned for its stability than its truth.

Read this book. And read the critics, too. They prove more than anything that Sheldrake's onto something.

Fascinating Read 24 février 2014
Par New Connexion Journal - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
The Sense of Being Stared At, Rupert Sheldrake, Park Street Press, 2013, $18.95
Author Rupert Sheldrake brings forth exhaustive and comprehensive new research into various phenomena. These phenomena are often considered paranormal, but the author explains how they are really normal, and part of our innate biology. Sheldrake postulates that there are evolutionary advantages of being consciously aware of one’s surroundings and other beings, without auditory or visual cues. He asserts that research reveals that our minds extend into the world around us, and even into the future, and thus consciousness is not housed strictly within our brains. Much of the research was so highly statistically significant that skeptics would have a hard time refuting the evidence. This book seems to leave no stone unturned in its comprehensive overview of so many topics. It’s a fascinating read, and with a good index, the reader can zoom in on any subject desired.

Rupert Sheldrake's Work is Fascinating 19 janvier 2014

Rupert Sheldrake has written several amazing books and this one is just as amazing. One of the more interesting parts of the book is the idea that your "mind or consciousness" sits outside the skull. I think the human race has been dumbed down and Sheldrake proves we have many more powers or perceptions that we realize. I enjoyed this book very much and will read whatever else he comes up with.
