“Fields” were first proposed by James Clerk Maxwell then expanded by Albert Einstein in his General Theory of Relativity and are now well accepted in the scientific community. In The Presence of the Past (2012) Rupert Sheldrake advances his concept of morphogenetic fields; fields of influence specific to a species, connected through morphic resonance, or a kind of species memory. Morphogenetic Fields and Morphic Resonance provide a possible basis for modeling Sheldrake’s process of Formative Causation, where a species develops in the patterns set down by previous members of the same species. A Foxglove flower, in average, will grow in much the same way as all previous Foxgloves, a kind of composite of its ancestors, guided through morphic resonance and the knowledge contained in its morphogenetic field; its species field. Also through this resonance, the life experience of each species member informs its field adding to the stored knowledge and history and therefore the potential resiliency of that species.
Morphic Resonance and a memory within Nature could have huge impacts on how post-modern people relate to a shrinking and increasing violent world. Perhaps we humans have a morphogenetic field of our own that is the accumulation of human experience and interactions over our species entire evolutional history. If we have lost our ability to connect or understand the resonance flowing to us from our field we are then cut off from the vast collected knowledge of the human race, to our loss. However, to reawaken this connection could heal our deep-held existential angst, lead to the florescence of human-being, and create a thriving future for all species.
The Presence of the Past delves into the history of the scientific perspective and the assumptions, generalizations, and ideals that have guided the scientific community up to this day. This provides a framework and invitation for the reader to decide for themselves if Sheldrake’s arguments sensible and sound. One may agree or not agree with Rupert Sheldrake’s ways of thinking and relating, but everyone will be stimulated into thought and probably into taking copious notes by the reading. This remarkable book is sure to please all who are thinking out of the box and seeking new ways of understanding the world around them. Written in clear and friendly language this is a good read for the non-scientific and scientist alike, I highly recommend this book.
