Returning to the theory of the morphic resonance and morphic field as it relates to codependency, I will focus on the effects of being raised in a dysfunctional home, where the behavioral field creates an unhealthy environment for growth and development of the children in the home.
This has been given various names--zero point energy field, The Field, Source Field, Morphic Field, Akashic Field, Aether (or Ether), etc.
This would apply, for example and in particular, to the concept of a "field," which plays a central role for Sheldrake in the context of his "morphic field." As a gravitational or electrical and magnetic field, such classical fields have a more or less comprehensible meaning for us.
For instance, the title story "Sisustus" describes a meeting of two characters drifting somewhere in between the morphic field and the matrix: "I pressed my gaze into his gaze and I swam along the channel of the gaze into his lifeless eyes and back." Similarly, a story titled "The Cruise" depicts the altered states of consciousness of another character, who decides that "sometimes a human being wants to take a little distance from oneself." Elsewhere, an unearthly family lives in a house full of blood, and yet another character floats in space stitched to a thick sheet of fog.
(16) If gap-junctions communication between adjacent cells plays a role in the regulation of information during normal embryonic development -when messages cannot be properly interpreted- instability is generated along with alteration of the organization capacity within the morphic field. (17) In such an unstable, "enthropic" system, new dynamics are being constructed, such as those described for dissipative systems, in which disruption and fluctuation behave as creative components under unbalanced conditions.
Whereas Sheidrake brings in the idea of a morphic field to explain group animal behaviour, Chandler thinks that there is a modulation of a carrier wave shared by other members of the species.
This portion of the study raises questions of teleportation and/or morphic field resonance.
Sheldrake magnanimously relates that "No doubt pigeons' navigation can be aided by using the sun's position and perhaps even a magnetic sense," but ends with "but without the directional pull through the morphic field connecting them to their home, they would be lost" (p.
The learning field correlates well with Greer's (1998) concept of the egregor and Sheldrake's (1988) idea of morphic fields.
"An alternate approach is offered by the biologist Rupert Sheldrake in his theory of morphic resonance, a view with affinities to the philosophical theory of forms, although unlike Plato and Aristotle's forms, his "morphic fields" are dynamic and evolving.

Top talk Rupert Sheldrake, one of the world's most innovative biologists and writers, is best known for his theory of morphic fields and morphic resonance.
