Video: Rupert Sheldrakes banned TED talk

Rupert Sheldrake has had a diverse career as a biochemist at Cambridge University, a Harvard scholar, a researcher at the Royal Society, and a plant physiologist. He developed a theory of Morphic Resonance and became interested in the study of telepathy and precognition as well as other anomalous phenomena.

“memory is inherent in nature” and that “natural systems … inherit a collective memory from all previous things of their kind.” Sheldrake proposes that it is also responsible for “telepathy-type interconnections between organisms.”


His books and talks have been largely denounced by the mainstream scientific community as pseudoscience and damaging to the public appreciation of the scientific method.

In 2013 Rupert gave a TED talk challenging current scientific dogma and availability biases. A couple of months later the talk was de-platformed by TED as not representing a consensus scientific viewpoint.

This is the talk.
