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
