The Field: The Quest for the Secret Force of the Universe
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.
Your "gut" feelings may be more scientific than you thought!

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...

Resistance is futile.

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... read more
The Field is out there ... but this may not be the way to find it
By Jeremy Likness "Health Coach" - March 11, 2006
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... read more
