Whilst in London we met and recorded a short interview with the Biologist Rupert Sheldrake. Rupert is best known for his theory of morphic fields and morphic resonance, which leads to a vision of a living, developing universe with its own inherent memory.
He worked in developmental biology at Cambridge University, where he was a Fellow of Clare College. He was then Principal Plant Physiologist at the International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT), in Hyderabad, India. From 2005 to 2010 he was Director of the Perrott-Warrick project. , funded from Trinity College, Cambridge.
I was very keen to ask Rupert about long term memory, which is an area which is not understood by brain scientists. In my opinion once the location or ''realm'' of long term memory is defined fully, it could lead to understanding more of what one might call non physical phenomenon. In the interview I asked Rupert about various areas of his work.
