The semantics of morphe in Phil 2:6

I'm looking for clarification on the meaning of morphe in Phil 2:6. I have
understood it of late to refer to the essential essence or nature of
something as opposed to Schema which is concerned more with outward
appearances. Is this so and does it have ramifications for our understanding
of the incarnation?

I'm doing a bible study on this next week so thought I would just ask to try
out the waters of this forum.
