Sorry for the media-style gossipy nature of this post, but as I’ve been very critical of Rupert Sheldrake‘s work in the past, I thought I’d mention this.
“[Rupert was] speaking on “thought transference” during an international conference at La Fonda on Wednesday was stabbed in the leg by a Japanese man who seemed upset by his remarks, witnesses said.”
Reports are that Sheldrake is ok, which is very good news. Despite what I may think of his work, I wish no harm on the guy. And the bigger issue here is that conferences on nonsense are very likely to attract nutters, as this one did. I’m just glad it wasn’t a more serious outcome.
