Morphic Fields

Morphic Fields

Rupert Sheldrake summarizes the concept of Morphic fields and their consequences.

memory is inherent in nature”
Most of the so-called laws of nature are more like habits.”
How are these fields inherited? I propose that that they are transmitted from past members of the species through a kind of non-local resonance, called morphic resonance.”
The fields organizing the activity of the nervous system are likewise inherited through morphic resonance, conveying a collective, instinctive memory. Each individual both draws upon and contributes to the collective memory of the species.”
The resonance of a brain with its own past states also helps to explain the memories of individual animals and humans. There is no need for all memories to be “stored” inside the brain.”
the patterns of activity in self-organizing systems are influenced by similar patterns in the past, giving each species and each kind of self-organizing system a collective memory.”
The morphic fields of mental activity are not confined to the insides of our heads. They extend far beyond our brain though intention and attention.”

Even more interesting, Sheldrake has been doing the research to establish these ideas. “my current academic appointment is as the Perrott-Warrick Scholar at Trinity College, Cambridge.”
