Scopaesthaesia, also known as the sense of being stared at or stare detection, is very widely experienced and the great majority of people including children say they have turned around to find someone looking at them. This sensitivity also seems to be widespread among animals and may have evolved in the context of predator-prey relationships. Yet there has so far been very little research on the subject and the very existence of this phenomenon goes against conventional materialist theory that minds are located inside heads. In this talk, Rupert Sheldrake will discuss experimental research on this subject, unanswered questions, and some of the theoretical implications. View Event
