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.

I also really liked when she was talking about how this Zero Point Field could be used, in the future, for an endless energy source and for space travel. And I agree that everything that happens in our Universe is recorded in The Field as information.
I think this book would benefit everyone, and I hope I can live to see the day when the notion that we live in a random, meaningless Universe dies a very hard and permanent death.
While my views of how life seems to work have been evolving, Lynne McTaggart's descriptions of the scientific process, her discoveries, and her thoughts on their meaning prompted me to revisit some of my own. I loved her descriptions of the interactions between scientists, and how they met wish such resistance from those in the mainstream of the scientific community.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone beginning to look into field medicine, energy work, or wanting to see how science really works.
Read it with a sense of journey and wonderful possibilities.
Lynne covers such topics as The Zero Point Field, Coherence, Psychokinesis, and the connections between Consciousness and Healing, and Intention. The Field discusses and connects research from such scientists as James Clerk Maxwell, Fritz-Albert Popp, Michael Faraday, Jacques Benveniste, Max Planck, Karl Pribram, David Bohm, Russel Targ, Niels Bohr, Werner Heisenberg, and Rupert Sheldrake.
With 35 pages of cited research and interview footnotes, a reader will appreciate the rock solid homework she's done on this quest, so WE don't have to.
Here's a few thoughts from The Field that really poked the fires in my own brain.
•By tapping into the Field, Consciousness has been shown to affect plant growth, bacteria growth, rodent behavior, cats and dogs, enzyme activity, crime rates and even Healing in strangers.
•Could this Zero Point Energy Field explain why "when closely packed together, atoms and molecules exhibit a collective behavior, forming what scientists have termed 'coherent domains'." This collective behavior can also be seen in crowd mentalities, or the beauty of schools of fish or flocks of birds as they instantly all change direction as one entity.
•Seeds, or the water used for those plants, when held (or thought about) by depressed people repeatedly showed suppressed growth. Contrary, holding or thinking of the seeds or water in a positive manner - showed a statistical difference in growth.
•As quantum physicists continue to study the "Zero Point Field", even for sources of fuel, we are beginning to connect the sciences in the HOW of "Universal Connectedness".
•Molecules can respond to the vibration of another molecule in the same way AS IF it had actually touched the original molecule. Yes, biological chain reactions were initiated when just the Frequency was relayed. "Cells don't rely on the happenstance of collision but on electromagnetic signaling at low frequency electronic waves." (This explains how on average, some 100,000 chemical reactions per second in each cell in your body, could happen, rather than "blindly bumping into each other" like little solid billiard balls.)
Rarely does a book inspire such thought as this one. It's a definite Must Read, and was an enjoyable and equally as inspiring Re-Read years later for me. Most importantly it has Inspired my own imagination, a reaching for my own understanding of MY experience. That's all any author could ever really hope for, I'd think.
As most people know, new ideas can always seem heretical. Mostly due to the Momentum of the old thoughts and politics and feelings of insecurity.
The Field helps orchestrate a new momentum. Congratulations Lynne!
