Morphogenetic Fields Theory
Dr. Ruppert Sheldrake is a biologist. He is mentioned with Morphogenetic fields theory which is the following; Through morphic resonance, the patterns of activity in self-organizing systems are influenced by similar patterns in the past, giving each species and each kind of self-organizing system a collective memory. Animals inherit the successful habits of their species as instincts. We inherit bodily, emotional, mental and cultural habits, including the habits of our languages.
Lyall Watsan explains this theory with the hundredth monkey phenomenon. A Japanese monkey species Macaca Fuscata was examined by scientists in its natural wild environment. One of their favorite feeds was sweet potatoes. In 1952 on the island of Koshima it was noticed that an 18-month female Macaca named Imo, washed her potato in the sea to remove the sand on it. Imo taught this to her mother. And playmates, they also started to wash their potatoes in the sea and they taught this to their mothers and so on. Until 1958 on the island, all the young monkeys learned to wash the sandy sweet potatoes before eating. In the autumn of that year an unspecified number of monkeys (aproximately 99 monkeys) on Koshima were washing sweet potatoes in the sea. . . .
When the hundredth monkey learned to wash potatoes, suddenly and spontaneously and mysteriously monkeys on all the other islands, without any physical contact with the potato-washing cult, they too started washing their potatoes in the sea!
