It’s been a while since my last post – so it’s about time to continue and to answer (at least partially) the questions that have been raised. Let me start with the research of a british biologist.
In the early 80ies of the past century, the british biologist Rupert Sheldrake published his theory on morphic fields – he called them a kind of “memory of nature”. According to his theory, everything that exists, from the smallest cell all the way to the Universe, is embedded in (formgiving) fields. These fields share basically 2 main functions:
- [The fields] “store” every important information (for example about the form) on everything they surround/embedd (for instance: a plant)
- Communication – the fields share information with each other
By taking Sheldrake’s theory into consideration, some of the phenomena of my previous post would get a possible explanation. Sheldrake had even thought of a couple of experiments that should help confirming his theory (or to reject it). If you are interested in learning more, I recommend reading his book “Seven Experiments That Could Change the World”.
One of the concerns of the critics of Dr. Sheldrake’s experiments is the “non-scientific” (“pseudo-scientific”) approach. However, there are also scientists that plead for a more serious analysis and evaluation of his hypothesis – such as the quantum-scientist David Bohm or Hans-Peter Dürr.
But, Sheldrake’s theory is not the only one that is shaking the foundation of classic science. If you thought that communication among morphic fields was odd, then my next post will probably knit your brows. There I will talk about the interaction between the human mind and technical machines.
Until then, I wish you a great time.
