Rupert Sheldrake’s first book ‘A New Science of Life’ caused both excitement and consternation when it first appeared in 1981. The editor of the journal Nature famously condemned it for heresy, describing it as “the best candidate for burning there has been for many years.” Sheldrake proposal was that memory is inherent in nature; the “laws of nature” are not fixed commandments imposed on the universe at the Big Bang, but rather habits that evolve.

The process of morphic resonance carries the memory of past systems into subsequent similar self-organizing systems, and applies to molecules, cells, organs, organisms, and societies of organisms. This hypothesis predicts that each species has a kind of collective memory. If rats learn a new trick in London, for example, rats all over the world should be able to learn the same trick quicker.

In this talk, Sheldrake will summarize this hypothesis and discuss how developments in science over the last forty years have made it more plausible.
