IMHO Sheldrake's morphic fields are organizing fields which result 
in the self-taming or organization of random fields.  So they are 
anti-entropic or energy-forming. We see such taming in the formation  
of planets from swirling dust particles, in the formation of tornadoes,  
and in the precipitation of ice crystals as water cools. Black holes 
are another possible example.  Priogogine has discussed this  
phenomenon in great detail. 

This self-organization is caused by the overcoming of the kinetic energy  
of vibration of random dispersions of particles through cooling. 
In this process, kinetic energy is dissipated through the internal  
attractions between individual particles. The individual attracting  
forces could include electrical attractions and the forces of gravity. 
Thus chance movements are gradually overcome by the mechanism 
of attractions between particles to organized fields called habits or 
morphic fields.
