Morphogenetic Fields

A morphogenetic field is in its basic essence the non-physical blueprint that gives birth to forms. It is an equivalent to an electromagnetic field that carries information only, not energy, and are available throughout time and space without any loss of intensity after they have been created.

Morphogenetic fields are created by the patterns of physical forms. They help guide the formation of later similar systems where a newly forming system “tunes into” a previous system by having within it a “seed” that resonates with a similar seed in the earlier form. Morphogenetic fields can be used to describe how the human consciousness is shared. The morphogenetic fields therefore play the main role in the idea that humanity at one point in time will go thru a dramatic collective shift in consciousness. A shift that will happen when the critical mass for a shift is reached, or in other words, when a certain number of spiritually awakened individuals are reached.

The idea is that there is a kind of memory in nature. Each kind of thing has a collective memory. So, take a squirrel living in New York now. That squirrel is being influenced by all past squirrels. And how that influence moves across time, the collective squirrel-memory both for form and for instincts, is given by the process I call morphic resonance. It’s a theory of collective memory throughout nature. What the memory is expressed through are the morphic fields, the fields within and around each organ ism.

The memory processes are due to morphic resonance. Basically, morphic fields are fields of habit, and they’ve been set up through habits of thought, through habits of activity, and through habits of speech. Most of our culture is habitual, I mean, most of our personal life, and most of our cultural life is habitual. The whole idea of morphic resonance is evolutionary, but morphic resonance only gives the repetitions. It doesn’t give the creativity. So evolution must involve an interplay of creativity and repetition. Creativity gives new forms, new patterns, new ideas, new art forms.

Morphogenetic fields suggest that our identity is dual, like an electron that is both a particle and a wave. We have aspects that are unique and totally individual, yet at the same time much of our thought and behavior is shaped by, and participates in, and helps create transpersonal morphogenetic fields….We are thus both individuals and expressions of and creators of a group mind – like the Jungian collective unconscious, but more extensive, and in come aspects more changeable.

Since our brains contain levels (mammalian, reptilian, etc.) that connect us to other species, that group mind includes all life. We may even find, as we explore the possibilities of consciousness associated with what we know think of as non-living matter, that we are linked in consciousness to all creation. We would thus be linked to the stars not only through the chemicals in our bodies, but through our minds as well.
