A long time ago now, on the 2nd of April 2008 in fact,
Rupert Sheldrake was attacked by a man wielding a knife. The incident happened
at the International Conference on Science and Consciousness at Santa
Fe, New Mexico USA.
The police treated the case as attempted murder; the suspect was a Japanese man
called Hirano Kazuki. I'm sure I wrote an article on HPANWO about this at the
time, but I can't find it now. I've no positive evidence that this attack was
anything more than what it seems to be at first glance, another "lone nutter"
does something completely independently of their own accord, like Lee Harvey
Oswald, Sirhan Sirhan, Mark Chapman etc etc etc... but I don't think it can be
ruled out that "other forces" were behind it. There are many people who might want Sheldrake out of the way. I've
started reading his new book The Science
Delusion and I can immediately understand why the Skeptics have reacted so viciously
against it. Would some of them go to more drastic lengths? Maybe we should warn
Dr Sheldrake that there might be more attempts on his life. I don't want to
give the man nightmares, but better safe than sorry. See here for background: http://hpanwo-tv.blogspot.co.uk/2013/03/down-with-skeptocracy.html
