A technical talk at Google on how the mind extends beyond the brain, just as fields extend beyond material objects like magnets and devices like cell phones. The leads to a new interpretation of the nature of vision, and sheds noew light on phenomena like the sense of being stared at and telepathy.
Nonlocal Mind (21:55)
Larry Dossey, MD
Physician Larry Dossey presents evidence that the effects of consciousness are not limited to one's individual brain and body, nor to the present, but are unbounded and unlimited in space and time, This lecture was censored by the TED organization, creating a firestorm of controversy, because it explores evidence that violates the materialist ideology that is dominant in many areas of neuroscience.

Filmmaker Renée Scheltema explores the evidence behind five areas of consciousness research: telepathy, clairvoyance, precognition, psychokinesis, and remote healing. The film's format is that of Scheltema's personal quest for understanding, which leads to interviews with some of the pioneer researchers of these areas. This high-quality DVD has gathered many awards: Berlin Documentary Festival-Official Selection, Tucson Arizona Film Festival-Jury Award, Los Angeles Feel Good Film Festival-Official Selection, Spirit Quest Film Festival-Official Selection, and Santa Fe Film Festival-Official Selection.

The Evolution of Telepathy (1:06:02)
Rupert Sheldrake, The Perrott-Warrick Lecture at Trinity College, Cambridge University
Dr Rupert Sheldrake argues that telepathy is a normal means of communication among members of animal groups, and is often shown by domesticated animals like dogs and cats in their responses to their owners' thoughts and intentions. Human telepathy follows similar principles, and is continuing to evolve in connection with modern communications systems like telephones and emails. Telepathy is normal, not paranormal.
