Beyond its global significance, the solstice is also an important personal anniversary. My first book “A New Science of Life” was published on June 21, 1981, forty years ago, in which I proposed the hypothesis of morphic resonance, the idea that memory is inherent in nature. I recently gave this talk to the Institute of Noetic Science and the British Scientific and Medical Network. The book itself is available in the third updated edition.
