Rupert Sheldrake on Memory

Memory is a relationship… across time between past experiences and present ones. The brain is… like a television receiver [which] doesn’t store all the images and programs you watch on it; it tunes in to them invisibly… The whole of the past is potentially present everywhere, and we access it on the basis of similarity… Morphic resonance works on the basis of similarity: we are roughly similar to many people, but we are most similar to ourselves in the past.1
