    Talking *about* him isn't going to yield any better results. Don't turn this into a grudge match.

    I may have been the first to broach the morphic resonance topic with Ted when he first appeared here on this list. I was in a playful mood and I thought I remembered him from a Sheldrake forum where we had a history of posting on the same threads.

    I'm no great fan of reductionism and I'd suppose you would probably be less critical of Dace's criticisms of reductionism if it weren't for your heated history with him and your dislike of Sheldrake's ideas. BTW Joe aren't you a fan of Piaget, if I recall correctly? Piaget had some rather eccentric views of evolution and biology too.

    Besides, if Ted were a true Sheldrake worshipper and evangelizer, he would have tried coaxing us to read the master's latest work _The Sense of Being Stared At_, recently published if I'm not mistaken. As it stands, again, I might be the first (with this post) to have mentioned that book on this list, not Dace. Cut him some slack.
