I believe this is a pseudoscientific theory that biological organisms
somehow communicate or converge to certain forms due to mysterious,
unexplained fields, and that their morphology is primarily, or at least
substantially, caused by extra-evolutionary processes. I read a rather
notorious book about it some years ago, but I've repressed the title and
the name of the author. It may pop into my consciousness in awhile.
