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.

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.
(Cynthia Sue Larson has a degree in physics from UC Berkeley and is author of the book "AURA ADVANTAGE: How the Colors in Your Aura Can Help You Attain What You Desire & Attact Success")
It is obvious that she understands what she writes about, and some of the quantum physics stuff really is not easy to grasp.
The author argues from the premise that all in our universe is interconnected, that nothing is isolated, or, as scientists say, that all is entangled. Now, when you put up such a point of departure, a lot of consequences flow out from this.
This book provides the most lucid and well-written explanation about the observer’s role in modern physics I ever found in a book. It boils down to our observing life results in changing life. If by observing the world, we change the world, it becomes evident that we are entangled with the world—and not isolated islands in space.
Scientists might understand in minute detail the screws, bolts, joints and various wheels, but nothing about the force that powers the engine. /12

So what is that secret force that drives all, that is the invisible engine behind all, and that animates all? It’s called the zero point field. Is that the magic formula that brings back the ether and the orgone that have been debated away? McTaggart shows with convincing evidence that modern science has more or less integrated now the cosmic energy field.
McTaggart also explains that our universe is not only active ‘in between’ matter, but is also a ‘relational’ interface where everything is connected with everything, and in relationship with one another.
One of the ways of looking at subatomic particles that physicists needed to change was to see them as isolated pieces of matter. Every time when they would look at them in that way, a paradox would happen, which led to a different way of thinking. It was only after including the observer in the experiment that paradoxes could be avoided and comprehensive results were achieved in quantum physics.
The immense energy that has been measured as pertaining to the zero-point field could represent another piece of evidence to its ‘global motor’ kind of function in our universe. McTaggart writes:
It has been calculated that the total energy of the Zero Point Field exceeds all energy in matter by the factor of 1040, or 1 followed by 40 zeros./23

It also has been found that the zero-point field contributes to the stability of matter and represents something like a blueprint of the entire universe.
One may then look over to the East and wonder if it's not what the Chinese understand under the 'chi' concept, which they equally consider as a configurational and bioplasmatic energy?
