Morphic Fields: Nature's Memory & Templates for Growth

morphogenetic fieldsRupert Sheldrake
The habits of nature depend on non-local similarity reinforcement. Through morphic resonance, 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.

Prayer: A Challenge for Science

As soon as we have the idea that the mind can be extended through mental fields, and over large distances, we have a medium of connection through which the power of prayer could work.

The Universal Organism

Sheldrake's theory that the Universe is a living, evolving, intelligent organism synthesizes the warring views of creationists and evolutionary theorists while avoiding Biblical fundmentalism and secular materialism in favor of post-Newtonian scientific spirituality.

Mind Memory & Archetype, Part III

morphogenetic fieldsRupert Sheldrake
Is the mind located in the brain or is consciousness a field phenomenon? Is consciousness a byproduct of brain chemistry or does mind - and soul --exist both within and outside our bodies? Here are some experiments you can do at home to explore the nature of consciousness.

Mind, Memory & Archetype, Part II

Rupert Sheldrake explores the role of morphogenic fields in manifestations of collective consciousness -- animal behavior,social networks, human religious rituals, and the conventional wisdom of crowds.

Mind, Memory and Archetype, Part I

morphogenetic fieldsRupert Sheldrake
The universe is more like an organism than a machine. The Big Bang recalls the mythic stories of the hatching of the cosmic egg: it grows, and as it grows it is more like a gigantic cosmic embryo than the huge eternal machine of mechanistic theory.
