In this paper, published in The Secular Heretic, Rupert discusses his hypothesis of morphic fields, connections with quantum physics, experiments on morphic fields, and the role of morphic resonance in biology and human learning.

Morphic fields underlie the organization of animals, plants, cells, proteins, crystals, brains and minds. They help to explain habits, memories, instincts, telepathy and the sense of direction. They have an inherent memory. They imply that many of the so-called laws of nature are more like habits.

This is, of course, a controversial hypothesis.
