Sheldrake Lecturing on Morphic Resonance in London

The Ecology, Cosmos and Consciousness lecture series presents:
A New Science of Life: Morphic Resonance and the Habits of Nature

Dr. Rupert Sheldrake
Tuesday, 31st March, 2009

According to Rupert Sheldrake's hypothesis of formative causation, all self-organizing systems, including crystals, animals and societies contain an inherent memory, given by a process called morphic resonance from previous similar systems. All human beings draw upon a collective human memory, and in turn contribute to it. Even individual memory depends on morphic resonance rather than on physical memory traces stored within the brain. This radical hypothesis implies that the so-called laws of nature are more like habits, and evolution, like human life, depends on an interplay between habit and creativity.

Rupert Sheldrake, Ph.D. is a biologist and author of more than 80 scientific papers and several books, including A New Science of Life (new edition, February 2008). His web site is
