The Presence of the Past
Could this be applicable to our psychological life? Dr. Rupert Sheldrake of Harvard argues the existence of "organizing fields" in personal memory due to the elaborate information-storage mechanism in the brain. It's a process, he said, that's analogous to composite photography, in which "average" pictures are produced by superimposing a number of similar images. He speaks of morphogenetic fields as "probability structures" in which the influence of the most common past types combines to increase the probability that such types will occur again.
