Morphic Fields

Fields that define form. What determines the form of an object (morphology) and how does that form change and evolve (morphogenesis)?

Current belief is that form is a natural consequence of a field (or collection of fields). The structure of an atom is the consequence of the strong nuclear force that tightly holds the quarks within the nucleus with electrons held more loosely by the resulting electromagnetic field. At this level, form cannot be anything else but what it is. However as complexity increases and competing processes “negotiate” for existence, can multiple forms emerge under different external conditions and how would these forms perpetuate themselves over time or remember the successful negotiations that brought them into existence. This attempts to provide a explicit model that is currently implicit in evolutionary theories - successful forms are negotiated (discovered) and not declared (created).

So the current inquiry is: over the spectrum of complexity, when does this concept of form (morphic fields) become imperative and can it be applied to simpler forms such as the beginning of the universe. Also what is the possible mathematical framework for modeling such fields?
