Standard models of the brain being the end-all-be-all of human consciousness fall away as we deepen our understanding of morphic resonance. Rupert Sheldrake explains the role of the brain as a receptor of consciousness, not the creator. We see this as we look to cases where certain individuals have very little brain matter, but still have full mental functioning. Much of what has been accepted as standard scientific thinking is being reworked as morphic field theory continuously proves itself in scientific settings.
Rupert Sheldrake is a biologist and author of more than 80 scientific papers and 10 books including Science Set Free. He worked in developmental biology at Cambridge University, where he was a Fellow of Clare College. His theory of morphic fields and morphic resonance leads to a vision of a living universe with its own inherent memory.
