Instincts and Morphic Fields

Updated on May 10, 2017

Instincts and Morphic Fields

What are instincts? They are inborn habits of organisms in the natural world. How do these inborn habits come about? Many people will say they evolved because they helped an animal or plant survive, so they were therefore carried on into the next generation, and then the next, and so on.

But that is a just-so story, like most of evolution. A spider accidentally made a magnificent web, and this was carried on through the next generation. How? There is no known mechanism for instincts, or the transmission of instinct to the next generation. That is why I propose they are controlled by morphic fields. Biologist Rupert Sheldrake came up with this idea, and I think it makes sense.

I think morphic fields are preprogrammed for every species. Since there is a program, there must be a programmer, and this programmer is most likely God.

The programmer could also be the organism called The Universe, who has learned to program itself according to God's plan.

There is no way a spider could have just happened on the right method to create it's intricate web. How could it even navigate three dimensional space? It must have some sort of set of detailed instructions to follow. This is where the morphic field comes in. Just like the magnetic field, it organizes. The morphic field comes from the formative, or Platonic realm. The formative realm is the realm behind the material realm, and everything is formed here first, before it is translated to the material realm.

Instincts come as "urges" to do a certain thing. An organism feels a strong need to perform a specific task. Most organisms then do the task, whether it nursing a baby, building a beaver's dam, or turning leaves towards the sun.

But some organisms, such as humans, are able to override these urges when they want, and choose not to do them. That is because all organisms have free will to some extent. The bigger the rational part of the brain, the more free will. That is why humans have the most free will, and are able to overcome base instincts and base emotions.

I will write more on these topics in further installations.
