How Do Pigeons Home?
One of the most interesting of Sheldrake’s proposals from the book Seven Experiments is mobile pigeon lofts. He goes into some detail in the book but he also brings up the topic during the Glorious Accident round table discussion. In this clip, he challenges some of the prevailing views and brings the group to laughter as he recaps the past 100 years of pigeon research. Around the table are: Stephen Jay Gould, Oliver Sacks, Daniel Dennett, Freeman Dyson, Stephen Toulmin, and of course Rupert Sheldrake.[vimeo]http://www.vimeo.com/17592229[/vimeo]
