No matter, never mind ...

... It's time for science to move on from materialism | Mark Vernon | Comment is free | (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

... some scientists are proposing top-down, holistic explanations. Sheldrake's particular proposal is that such self-organising systems exist in fields of memory or habit. These contain the information required to make the structure.

This sounds to as if Sheldrake is trying to adapt quantum physics to biology, packets of information corresponding to packets of energy.
