Book Description

In this groundbreaking classic, investigative journalist Lynne McTaggart reveals a radical new paradigm—that the human mind and body are not separate from their environment but a packet of pulsating power constantly interacting with this vast energy sea, and that consciousness may be central in shaping our world. The Field is a highly readable scientific detective story presenting a stunning picture of an interconnected universe and a new scientific theory that makes sense of supernatural phenomena. Documented by distinguished sources, The Field is a book of hope and inspiration for today's world.



Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

McTaggart, an investigative journalist (What Doctors Don't Tell You), describes scientific discoveries that she believes point to a unifying concept of the universe, one that reconciles mind with matter, classic Newtonian science with quantum physics and, most importantly, science with religion. At issue is the zero point field, the so-called "dead space" of microscopic vibrations in outer space as well as within and between physical objects on earth. These fields, McTaggart asserts, are a "cobweb of energy exchange" that link everything in the universe; they control everything from cellular communication to the workings of the mind, and they could be harnessed for unlimited propulsion fuel, levitation, ESP, spiritual healing and more. Physicists have been aware of the likelihood of this field for years, McTaggart writes, but, constrained by orthodoxy, they have ignored its effects, which she likens to "subtracting out God" from their equations. But, McTaggart asserts, "tiny pockets of quiet rebellion" against scientific convention are emerging, led by Ed Mitchell, an Apollo 14 astronaut and founder of the Institute for Noetic Sciences, an alternative-science think tank. McTaggart writes well and tells a good story, but the supporting data here is somewhat sketchy. Until it materializes, McTaggart may have to settle for being a voice in the wilderness.

Lynne McTaggart boldly dives in where few dare to go... the murky, much debated realm between God and Science. In a thoroughly detailed and meticulously researched fashion, she lays open study upon study that point to the possibility of a universal energy source, the "Zero Point Field" as she cites it. This "force" operates on a quantum level of photon vibrations that precedes and supercedes the strict bio-chemical mentality of current science. This book challenges a lot of long held beliefs, including...

*Man is isolated from the world (People are indivisable from their environment)
*The brain is the seat of consciousness (Living consciousness is not an isolated entity)
*The human being is a survival machine powered by genetic coding (Cells and DNA communicate through frequencies)

Perhaps one of the most profound and summarizing statements is McTaggart's assertion (based on volumous research) that...

"A substructure underpins the universe that is essentially a recording medium of everything, providing a means for everything to communicate with everything else."

If taken for what it is, the book amounts to the peaceful overthrow of many long held scientific beliefs and models, and establishes a framework that accomodates both science and spirituality. A good read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Resistance is futile. June 26, 2005
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
After ignoring several proddings from others to get this book, I finally yielded after coming across it while researching the issues behind Codex Alimentarius. I've read quite a few books on new agey topics starting out with Peter Russel's The Awakening Earth in 1986, and prefer those that use a disciplined, logical, and non-sensicial approach, such as Gregg Braden's The God Code, Dr. Bruce Lipton's The Biology of Belief, and Dr. David Hawkins' Power vs Force. THE FIELD is presented in a similar vein. Initially thinking "what could a journalist tell me that I already don't know?", well it appears quite a lot. THE FIELD is a compelling and exciting (yes - even for a science book) read at times as the retelling of various experiments and discoveries unfolds. The knowledge of these are worth the purchase price alone, and the added value comes from the connections McTAGGART makes. That type of astute integration can only be done by doing your research, and models the same positive attributes of the hidden field of consciousness, that is discussed in THE FIELD itself. And finally, remember that science is a method, NOT a position.

Excellent value, a must buy.

With an ear for human interest and eye for detail, Lynne McTaggart masterfully tells the true story in THE FIELD of how pioneers in science and consciousness research are working to achieve a more complete understanding of the true nature of reality -- an understanding which includes (rather than ignores) consciousness.

THE FIELD describes how scientists have gradually become aware of what appears to be a unifying energy structure in our universe. This "Zero Point Field" provides us with a simpler explanation for how things work than previous overly-complex ideas require. Simplicity in science is a good thing, because it generally indicates which theories will win out as time goes by. The Zero Point Field theory demonstrates it's elegant simplicity by allowing physicists to derive the famous equation F=ma (rather than take it as a starting assumption), and by helping medical practitioners understand the underlying scientific basis for homeopathy.

Our scientific conceptualization of this universe has changed considerably over the last few centuries and now faces one of the biggest overhauls ever -- and THE FIELD demonstrates why the Zero Point Field is likely to be the last frontier for us to explore. THE FIELD is packed with detailed descriptions of some of the most exciting experiments recently conducted by leading researchers in the field of consciousness such as: Cleve Backster, Jacques Benveniste, William Braud, Bob Jahn, Edgar Mitchell, Fritz-Albert Popp, Hal Puthoff, Rupert Sheldrake, Russell Targ, Elisabeth Targ, and Charles Tart.

I give this book my highest recommendation.

Format:Paperback
I was excited to pick up my copy of "The Field." I've transformed my own life in many ways that I feel go beyond the realm of ordinary science. For this reason, I'm always excited to find new material that bridges (or attempts to bridge) the gap between the natural and the supernatural.

While the Field certainly had a lot of material, the author's bias permeated every page. We are told in the beginning that none of this is based on opinion - it's all fact - but then we are subtly required not to question these "facts" as they are thrown at us as face value. Unfortunately, many of the studies that were presented were taken out of context and blown out of proportion.

For example, there is an experiment where participants were asked to play a game involving several decks of cards. Unknown to the participants, all of the "bad" cards were located in a specific deck. If you read Malcolm's interpretation in the awesome book, Blink!, it describes how the participants begin to subconscioiusly realize which deck is the "bad" deck long before they consciously accept the fact and start avoiding the deck. In The Field, however, this suddenly becomes a premonition and we are to believe the participants actually time travel to reach their revelation.

So far, my favorite book in this area is "How Consciousness Commands Matter" ... but even that book falls apart in the end when the author tries to suddenly explain Life, the Universe, and Everything (or did another author tackle that one?)

In my opinion, this is a good book to pick up second hand and maybe skim a little. As someone who has devoured titles like The Power of Intention, The Attractor Factor, and even made my own contribution to Life's Missing Manual, I could not even finish this book ... there was too much of the author's insistence and not enough of new material or reveleation left for me to decide.
