'Biddy, I'm sorry, we're going to have to leave her.''What?' Biddy struggled out of the quicksand. 'You can't leave her! The tide's coming in. She'll drown!'But the pony is trapped and Biddy is forced to go on without her. Next day the only signs of Bella are hoofprints in the sand...with small footprints and the paw marks…
According to these principles, all of reality is material or physical; the world is a machine, made up of inanimate matter; nature is purposeless; consciousness is nothing but the physical activity of the brain; free will is an illusion; God exists only as an idea in human minds, imprisoned within our skulls.
But should science be a belief-system, or a method of enquiry? Sheldrake shows that the materialist ideology is moribund; under its sway, increasingly expensive research is reaping diminishing returns while societies around the world are paying the price.
In the skeptical spirit of true science, Sheldrake turns the ten fundamental dogmas of materialism into exciting questions, and shows how all of them open up startling new possibilities for discovery.
Science Set Free will radically change your view of what is real and what is possible.
