The concept of a Kosmic memory called Akashic field is to be found in Hindu philosophy, when Buddhists speak of Alayavijnana, they mean a storehouse in which the memories of all human beings—of their thoughts, feelings, wishes, and deeds—are stored as possibilities or seeds.
In Christian theology, and in Judaism it is called the book of life, or the book of remembrance. The concept refers to a non-physical kosmic memory in which all past or even future knowledge has been recorded. While it is called a field, it is non-local, spaceless and timeless.
While not the same, it has some parallels with Sheldrake’s morphogenetic fields, Bohm’s implicate orders and Jung’s archetypes. The thought is that the Akashic records hold active information which generates structuring patterns which influence the physical and mental worlds. Its influence is by an non-local resonance based upon similarity.
Ervin Laszlo in his book “Science and the Akashic Field, An Integral Theory of everything” suggests that the Akashic Field may be operating at micro level, on kosmic level as well as on a biological level, and that this field could even be instrumental in the fine-tuning on this levels. This information field may be responsible for the numerical coincidences that make up this fine tuning.
