Not being as memocentric as some of the readership here, I don't know
whether I'm a card-carrying member of the "collective". I'm not totally
anti-meme, just agnostic.
Many of us are skeptical of Sheldrake's ideas, but aside from that we have
quite different views on other topics. A broad brush would obscure the
Sheldrake's ideas overlap with my interests in places (memory, evolution,
development, etc) so I might have less clogged ears than others. I still
don't feel MR has any veracity though. My interest is in the concept and its
Haeckel entertained vibrational or wave-motion based theories on heredity
with perigenesis and plastidules (analogous to Darwin's pangenesis and
gemmules) . I wonder how this sort of organic memory compares and contrasts
to Sheldrake's views.
