Rupert Sheldrake proposes that there is a species-specific morphogenetic field to which individuals contribute information about their life experiences, and from which they can draw information that may be of use to them. He suggests that intuitive knowledge may be stored in these morphogenetic fields. Various experiments have supported this theory.
A collective consciousness is supportable if we accept that psi abilities reside in each of us. Our individual awarenesses may be linked through psi to the awareness of every other consciousness in the world. This suggests that intuitive information could be drawn from the collective wisdom of the world.
