In this eye-opening webinar chaired by Dr Rupert Sheldrake, Craig Weiler will examine the widespread phenomenon of dogmatic scepticism in relation to psi research, where the phenomena are often dismissed as impossible in principle in spite of extensive evidence to the contrary. However, as Larry LeShan wrily observed, there are no impossible facts. Nevertheless, such scepticism – also targeting Network scientists such as Rupert and Nobel Laureate Prof Brian Josephson – remains widespread among the scientific and academic communities and raises important sociological, psychological and philosophical issues, acting as a brake on the necessary paradigm shift to open up a new science of consciousness. Craig will discuss and illustrate these concerns with significant examples.
