drbubb Posted October 21, 2014 Report Share Posted October 21, 2014 Imaginal Power : "Morphic Resonance" & the power of shared Consciousness Rupert Sheldrake's "Morphic Resonance" may be a Key to understanding this power The idea which I call "Imaginal Power" may be New to many, so I want to introduce it in stages. First, a quote: "I Think, Therefore I am." - Rene Descartes - which I will transform and paraphrase, this way: "I Imagine, Thereby I become." - DrBubb, explaining Imaginal Power Now consider, the "imaginal cells", of the caterpillar, which allow it to become a butterfly: Here's a traditional mechanical-materialist description of how the miracle of that transformation occurs: Definition : Imaginal cells are tissue-specific progenitors allocated in embryogenesis that remain quiescent during embryonic and larval life. During Drosophila metamorphosis, most larval cells die. Pupal and adult tissues form from imaginal cells. Clonal analysis and fate mapping of single, identified cells show that tracheal system remodeling at metamorphosis involves a classical imaginal cell population and a population of differentiated, functional larval tracheal cells that reenter the cell cycle and regain developmental potency. In late larvae, both populations are activated and proliferate, spread over and replace old branches, and diversify into various stalk and coiled tracheolar cells under control of fibroblast growth factor signaling. Thus, Drosophila pupal/adult tissue progenitors can arise both by early allocation of multipotent cells and late return of differentiated cells to a multipotent state, even within a single tissue. == > source : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Imaginal_disc (This is a materialistic-scientific explanation, which is an alternative to a more poetic one: "The caterpillar falls asleep, and imagines in its dream that it will become a butterfly, and by the power of that imaginative dream, BECOMES a butterfly." I think the true explanation has an element of both : it is the dream of being a butterfly which is held in source consciousness, that allows those imaginal cells to receive the message needed to produce a butterfly.) Now, consider this little analogy, that DNA is like a combined antenna-and-radio receiving set, which receives a signal from "Consciousness" (the Source), and transforms that signal into a living being. The sort of living being, depends upon what part of overall Consciousness the DNA has been tuned into. So the DNA for a human will create a different being, than the DNA for a monkey, because they are in tune with different parts of the overall Source design-blueprint of Conscious life for different species. And here's an even more radical idea. The system also works in reverse: What happens here, to individual beings, can also have an impact on Source. In effect, we can transmit changes to the blueprint held in the greater consciousness. Having outlined this concept, I can now refer readers to the "Morphic Resonance" idea of Rupert Sheldrake. EXCERPT: Morphic resonance is a process whereby self-organising systems inherit a memory from previous similar systems. In its most general formulation, morphic resonance means that the so-called laws of nature are more like habits. The hypothesis of morphic resonance also leads to a radically new interpretation of memory storage in the brain and of biological inheritance. Memory need not be stored in material traces inside brains, which are more like TV receivers than video recorders, tuning into influences from the past. And biological inheritance need not all be coded in the genes, or in epigenetic modifications of the genes; much of it depends on morphic resonance from previous members of the species. Thus each individual inherits a collective memory from past members of the species, and also contributes to the collective memory, affecting other members of the species in the future. == > MorphicResonance : http://www.sheldrake.org/research/morphic-resonance LINK :: http://tinyurl.com/Acore-Imaginal Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
