Review quote

'I think this is an important book and should be widely read. It stretches the imagination, making a good case that we are on the verge of another revolution in our understanding of the universe - perhaps even greater than the one that heralded the Atomic Age.' Arthur C. Clarke 'We must freely explore the unknown. Read, learn, accept and change your view of life ... fascinating.' Bernie Siegel, M.D. 'The Field is a preview of third-millennium science and how it will touch the lives of every person on earth...McTaggart's book should come with a warning: MAY FOREVER CHANGE YOUR WORLD VIEW.' Larry Dossey, M.D. "A fascinating read for anyone who believes there is more to this world than meets the eye. Unputdownable." JACQUES BENVENISTEshow more

Review Text

For several years now, authors with New Age leanings have been claiming that the higher levels of quantum physics are proving consistent with many metaphysical beliefs about the nature of the universe, particularly the existence of the mysterious 'life force' held to underlie many ancient philosophical traditions. But where was the evidence for these assertions, at least at a level accessible to an ordinary reader without a doctorate in physics? Well, here it is, in a fascinating marriage of high science and spirituality, from the pen of journalist Lynne McTaggart, author of the groundbreaking book What Doctors Don't Tell You and editor of the magazine of that name. It's deliberately told as an unfolding detective story, and liberally sprinkled with vignettes detailing the private lives and thoughts of the scientists involved, based on her extensive conversations with them as well as their research findings. This is clearly a somewhat uncritical analysis and, unless you are a physics graduate, you will probably have to accept many of her explanations at face value. Inevitably it includes both orthodox findings and what many might regard as 'quasi-science'. The tale which emerges centres on the discovery of the Zero Point Field, a universal energy interconnecting the cosmos. This field exists in the apparent empty space of the universe and comprises a potentially vast energy source which might be tapped for space travel; explain at a quantum level the mysteries of gravity, inertia, DNA, consciousness, creativity and illness; alter the meaning of Einstein's famous equation E=mc2; and offer a scientific basis for phenomena as diverse as extrasensory perception, levitation, homoeopathy, healing and the power of prayer. It also purports to show, as metaphysicists have always claimed, that matter is a sort of illusion: the only fundamental physical entity is energy. An extraordinary analysis of the science of miracles. (Kirkus UK)show more
