Have you ever wondered how your cat or dog seems to know when you're coming home or how you know when you're being stared at from behind? These invisible links found in nature are some of the topics explored in this discussion with Rupert Sheldrake, one of the most innovative scientists of our time.

Dr. Sheldrake is perhaps best known for his morphic field theory, which takes a fresh look at memory, habit, instinct and heredity as well as phenomena such as telepathy - aspects of human experience that are unexplained in terms of current physics.

He's the author of several books including:
