That’s what I’m saying morphic resonance does. I discuss this evidence in A New Science of Life, now in its third edition, called Morphic Resonance in the US. Morphic resonance in human learning Morphic resonance has many implications for the understanding of human learning, including the acquisition of languages. A professor at Harvard called William McDougall, wanted to find out if rats could learn quicker what their parents had learned. This may seem a bit improbable, but either this sort of thing happens or it doesn't. It was done years ago, before the second world war. The theory says that if a change occurs once, it creates a field of change that makes it easier for the same change to happen elsewhere. Then rats in Melbourne, Australia learned yet faster. The rats around the world will pick up the new habit via morphic resonance. Morphic fields organise the form, structure and patterned interactions of systems under their influence – including those of animals, plants, cells, proteins, crystals, brains and minds. Use features like bookmarks, note taking and highlighting while reading Morphic Resonance: The Nature of Formative Causation. Rats also been instrumental in helping scientists quantify the nebulous and unquantifiable. Sheldrake proposed that organisms inherit memory, such as learned behaviors, and not just biological material from their forebears. In Melbourne the rats continued to improve after repeated testing, and this effect was not confined to the descendants of trained rats, suggesting a morphic resonance … Rats with no trained ancestors shared in this improvement. In Melbourne the rats continued to improve after repeated testing, and this effect was not confined to the descendants of trained rats, suggesting a morphic resonance rather than epigenetic effect. He worked as a biochemist at Cambridge University from 1967 to 1973 and as principal plant physiologist at the International Crops … However, if you train rats to learn a new trick in one place, like Los Angeles, then rats all over the world should be able to learn the trick more quickly because the first group of rats learned it. Morphic fields organize the form, structure and patterned interactions of systems under their influence – including those of animals, plants, cells, proteins, crystals, brains and minds. a field which he called ‘morphic resonance’. His theory of morphic resonance, and cover topics such as animal and plant development and behaviour, memory, telepathy, perception and cognition in general. A morphic field (a term introduced by Rupert Sheldrake, the major proponent of this concept, through his Hypothesis of Formative Causation) is described as consisting of patterns that govern the development of forms, structures and arrangements.The theory of morphic fields is not accepted by mainstream science. Using his theory of morphic resonance, Sheldrake was able to reinterpret the regularities of nature as being more like habits than immutable laws, offering a new understanding of life and consciousness. It was done to test something else. • Explains how past forms and behaviors of organisms determine those of similar organisms in the present through morphic resonance ... and why when laboratory rats have learned how to navigate a maze in one place, rats elsewhere appear to learn it more easily. memory-in the morphic fields of rats, to which other rats can tune in, just because they are rats and just because they are in similar circumstances, by morphic resonance. After rats at Harvard first escaped from a new kind of water maze, successive generations learned quicker and quicker. One such theory is that of “morphic resonance,” proposed by Rupert Sheldrake in the late 1960s. ‎New updated and expanded edition of the groundbreaking book that ignited a firestorm in the scientific world with its radical approach to evolution • Explains how past forms and behaviors of organisms determine those of similar organisms in the present through morphic resonance
