A morphogenetic field is a theoretical model for the biological and social field that contains the energy-information necessary to shape the exact form of a living thing and may also shape its behavior and coordination with other beings.
The morphogenetic field is a force that guides the development of an organism as it grows, making it take on a form similar to that of others in its species. DNA was not the source of structure itself, but rather a "receiver" that translated instructions in the field into physical form. The field broadcasts across the nodal network of the space-time continuum.
How is it, that fungal mycelium, which live apart and free in the soil substrate, converge to make a mushroom? As Gurwitsch hypothesized: “The place of the embryonal formative process is a field, the boundaries of which, in general, do not coincide with those of the embryo but surpass them.” Early biologists imagined relatively discrete morphic fields surrounding and shaping each plant or animal.

"A mycelial rhizome has no beginning or end; it is always in the middle, between things, interbeing, intermezzo. Fungal mycelium’s rhizome is based on alliance, uniquely alliance. The tree imposes the verb "to be," but the fabric of the rhizome is the conjunction, "and...and...and..." Between things does not designate a localizable relation going from one thing to the other and back again, but a perpendicular direction, a transversal movement that sweeps one and the other way, a stream without beginnig or end that undermines its bank and picks up speed in the middle." -  " A Thousand Plateaus " by Deleuze & Guattari

Perhaps the essential shape of the human soul-spirit is a mushroom. This shape may also be seen as reflecting the cruxification of human consciousness embedded into the morphic resonant and interdimensional net of mycelial transmissions. The composition is designed to show the infinite perspective of this
network of luminous fibers of awareness, from intimate to distant.

Thanks for including the early stage link. I like to see the evolutionary progress of visionary art. 

For some reason I felt like my favorite visionary artists simply were so inspired that they just started in on a canvas with an amazing idea. I am realizing now that many have a similar process of evolutionary progression starting from the initial seed of a vision like myself.

Your work is some of my favorite of recent months. Thanks for sharing and best wishes for your future works.

I am astounded at artwork on this site. I have only accidently come across it and can't believe how humble I feel to be looking at it. I feel i dont know enough to comment and many people would feel intimidated by your informative description but I have to comment to make sense of it.

You seem so methodical in your approach, biological, it sounds and looks like natural growth but phyislisophical so its difficult to understand with no 'yes and nos' only 'middle' which has been sped up. An image apprearing in the reflection of how the consciousness expects to see it and the image learning with its mirror. not sure if i am way off on this tangent. I'm a business daily living person, Apologies for my ignorance. I allow my mind to try an understand this extension only for indugence and I am by no means use to having the pleasure of artistic interpretation to this level.

I love the structure - the morphogenetic field. this gives me somthing to see in my mind so i can try understand the 'cruxification of human consciousness' like its breathing in a roumour of itself. when someone passes away and someone on earth/living thinks about them the memory of the dead passes through the minds of the living like a memory but its the living which are part of the process of the dead to evolve and hence us humans get such a circular motion when we sit in the middle of it. We get so sad of our loss but in my mind its just the motion sickness of the stream without the beginning or end. this is beautiful because it shows perspecitve in an interdimensional awareness. what is the next stage of human soul spirit, how will we evolve if we stop and connect more closely with a outer guidance, what will happen if we dont need the morphogenetic field and its energy information.

original no doubt, but it reminds me of alex grey's "beings within beings" featured in his chapel of sacred mirrors.

the amount of detail in this is astounding
