Evidence for this is supplied by an experiment started at Harvard University. Over a ten year period, rats were trained to escape from a water maze. Each new generation learned to escape quicker. After ten years, the rats could escape ten times faster than the original rats. This change occurred in all of the rats of the same species and not just the descendants of the original rats. In fact, the change occurred in rats of the same species in other areas of the world (Sheldrake, 1991).
More empirical evidence for morphogenetic fields comes from the blue tit, a European bird (Sheldrake, 1991). The blue tits learned that they could steal cream from the top of milk bottles left on the doorsteps of houses. Eventually birds all over Europe were stealing cream. When the WWII came, milk was no longer delivered in Holland. After eight years, when the war ended, the milk delivery continued. The blue tits, in a short period of time, were once again stealing the cream. The amazing thing is that the life span of the blue tit is only three years. Two generations of blue tits had passed and yet the descendants still knew how to steal cream (Sheldrake, 1991).
The proof of morphogenetic fields is further supported by the fact that in two different places of the world, the theory of evolution was independently discovered by both Darwin and Wallace; and, in two different places of the world, calculus was independently invented by both Newton and Leibniz.
