The Field: The Quest for the Secret Force of the Universe seemed promising and interesting to me at first glance because of author Lynne McTaggart’s angle. She tries to show that certain questionable topics, such as linking quantum physics to the somewhat New Age-ish idea that every single thing in the universe is connected, can actually be shown to be true via proper scientific research (double-blind, other researchers replicating the methods and getting the same results, etc.). The hypothesi [...]
I'm currently reading this book. It is validating my interest in the quantum field. We create our own reality with our thoughts. And it is only a matter of time until we create either more joy or more pain!Since thoughts become reality, it behooves us to pay attention to what we are thinking!!
One of the most though-provoking books I've read. The ZPF theories have profound implications for all of us, individually and collectively. McTaggart does an excellent job of translating the scientific data into an understandable package. A must-read for all--those seeking a mental challenge and those searching for spiritual connectivity regardless of their religious affiliation, as well as atheists.
Um. I had to read this for a class. There's some stuff in here, but you really have to be an incredibly well-trained critical thinker, which I like to think I am, to pull what's worthwhile out. Just note that none of the scientists she interviews is one of the blurbers of this book. Note the latest update was in 2008. Google around for peer-reviewed publications on the Zero Point Field that have been published recently. Note that she often quotes this or that scientist on some cool discovery and [...]
When I picked up this book, I was worried that it was going to turn out to be flaky, new-age stuff with a couple of studies on quantum physics that only tangentially supported the claims being made. However, I was very pleasantly surprised. The evidence presented is accompanied by important information for evaluating its scientific usefulness (sample sizes, study designs) but still manages to explain everything without using statistics too tough for the layman to understand. There is a huge body [...]
This is one of those books that will make you shake your head as you think about the power of prayer. An amazing account of scientifically proven experiences, that are further reinforced by events more recent. The 30 days of prayer in Washington D.C. in support of peace, and the astounding result. Remote prayer for HIV patients, with more amazing results. But the ultimate take away is denomination was not the deciding factor. A must read for those doubtful of the power of your thoughts.The Field [...]
Note: This is a review of the audiobook narrated by the author. I do not know if the audiobook is exactly the same as the book.This is perhaps the most disappointing (audio) book I have ever read.As a trained systems scientist and bio-engineer with a wide variety of experiences in body-mind and energy disciplines, I am very very interested in the subject matter. To be honest, I went in without too much skepticism. Based on my experience, Qi or Life Force is real, and existing scientific paradigm [...]
Pretty deep stuff, I'm glad that I was preparing my mind back in the 60s and 70s! Our brain is not a storage medium, it is a receiving mechanism, our short and long term knowledge doesn't reside in our brains it is instead stored in the Zero Point Field. The universe is a vast dynamic cobweb of energy exchange from the ZPF and available to us. Consciousness at its most basic is coherent light and the physical world only exists in its concrete state while we are involved in it. If we are going to [...]
Deceptive pseudoscience. The author reports "studies" purporting to show that ESP and similar phenomena exist -- but she either fails to include statistical information, or includes numbers from the study and then *straight-up lies* about their statistical relevance (hint: guessing the outcome of a coin flip correctly in 52.5% of 100-ish trials is not a statistically significant deviation from chance). Further, there are no negative results included -- she claims that studies show that ESP-like [...]
I think it's telling that there are no negative reviews of this book here. It's an extremely interesting story about the grid of energy that connects everything on earth to everything else on earth, as well as to everything else in the universe. Sound like a lot to absorb? Well, it is, but it is done tastefully with some very compelling data that does not misrepresent itself. The data does not need to be inflated to be astounding; it is in fact the mere decimal of difference in the data that spe [...]
Loved this book. Weaves together the scientific work done over the last 80 years which cumulatively goes a very long way to supporting New Age healings. Very eye opening to get such a clearer understanding of spontaneous recovery or telekinesis. Enjoy.
The Field: The Quest For The Secret Force Of The Universe is a well-researched and well written book that is promoting The Zero Point Field which is defined as ‘a repository of all fields and all ground energy states and all virtual particles - a field of fields.’ I think this is similar to a universal Morphic Field as provided by Sheldrake or a ground state of which the Implicate and Explicate order arise out of as described by Bohm. This is definitely a thought provoking and paradigm expan [...]
This is by far one of the most important books I have read, and I think anyone should read.As a yoga practitioner, and one who has gone through reiki training, my rational mind seeks more scientific substantiation of what the yogis, healers and spiritualists have known for thousands of years. The field refers to the zero point field (ZPF), which is made up of the spaces between sub-atomic particles. At absolute zero, this field still emits energy. It is not a vacuum but a field that is constantl [...]
This book is ridiculously fascinating. And wonderfully heady. And very, very difficult to grok. What you may or may not know about me: I am enchanted (albeit still utterly mystified) by quantum mechanics. If Peter Vollhardt, my Organic Chemistry professor at UC Berkeley in 1989, had somehow managed to explain quantum mechanics a little more clearly at the time, the course of my life may very well have been different. I might be working in a weird little lab somewhere, investigating the Zero Poin [...]
This book has changed our concept of the Universe. Lynne often says she is not a scientist, but she has collaborated with some of the best and effectively put their thoughts and discoveries into the public domain. I'll never forget reading her opening words: "We are poised on the brink of a revolution - a revolution as daring and profound as Einstein's discovery of relativity." She then went on to tell us about that revolution.
A fascinating read! If you believe that there is an energy field that exists beyond human comprehension and want to see the scientific studies that are searching for and proving it exists, this is your book. There are so many fascinating studies regarding quantum physics here! This is one of the best books I have ever read on the reality of intentional and conscious living.
If you only read one review, please make it this one! It’s a long one, but it addresses things that I really think you should consider.I want to start by saying that many of the core concepts in this book are things that I already believe or want to believe. That’s mainly why I picked up the book—I’m searching for proof to vindicate my view of the world, that the entire universe is connected in some intangible way, that there’s more to human (and animal) consciousness than just the rig [...]
This book was an interesting read and a great summary of all the research in these related fields of thought. It is extensively referenced and to label all the contents as pseudoscience is unfair. The main fault is that the author gives equal weight to good sources and dodgy ones (though just because the establishment considers something dodgy, it ain't necessarily so!) Lacking a science background, she also misses the meaning of some of her conclusions. To be fair, it would be very difficult to [...]
I really do want to be convinced that there is a 'secret force in the universe' because it's a really, really interesting concept.Unfortunately, this is not the book that will convince me.There's just too much jumping to conclusions without sufficient explanation. Maybe some of that is my lack of understanding - maybe if I was less tired when I read it I could have given it more attention and taken more in.One thing I wonder though: why has this book not changed the world already? Why are we sti [...]
This has to be the most fascinating book I've read in years. Really.I saw the author give a blurb on a documentary a couple of months ago and what she said really caught my attention. I went looking for her online and ran into this book.What it is: Descriptions (in story form; it isn't dry) of the historical and recent scientific studies/research of Quantum Physics and the Zero Point Field. Okay I'd *heard* of Quantum Theory and that it worked 'underneath' Newtonian physics, but that was about i [...]
Lynne McTaggart is a journalist who has bravely embarked on a quest to scientifically explain "the life force" that governs the universe. I have neither the necessary background nor am I well-read enough in this subject to scrutinize her findings, but her research seems to be solid and her arguments as well as critical analysis compelling. As someone who didn't start out as an expert on science, quantum physics to be precise, she has managed to extricate complex scientific findings and hypothese [...]
I was expecting something completely fluffy, but I was impressed early on by some of the research that was described. The book ranges from work in quantum physics (specifically, idea of the Zero Point Field) to biology to (inadvertent) homeopathy to the holographic model of the mind to psychic phenomena in gathering evidence to support its argument that this Zero Point Field is nothing less than the substrate of the "external" world and "internal" experience. Here's how McTaggart summarizes the [...]
The author goes to great lengths to introduce complex concepts in layman's terms to those of us who are not nor will ever be, Rocket Scientists! That said however several of these concepts are still tricky for most of us to absorb with the same zeal that the author presents them with. I loved the precept; Present the works of cutting edge science & scientists in readable and accessible language so that we can all be as excited about these new ground-breaking realities as the scientists thems [...]
I have mixed feelings about this book: on one hand I found it really interesting; it tells about Quantum Mechanics, and the frontier of physics and the unlimited possibilities lying beneath the Zero Point Field (which gives the book its title).On the other hand, the book uses the (still unknown and rather hypothetical) Zero Point Field to explain almost any "paranormal" or "alternative" phenomena, some of them already explained by our current and well established scientific paradigm.Despite that [...]
This book will change the way that you see the world.Investigative journalist Lynne McTaggart reveals a radical newparadigm—that the human mind and body are not separatefrom their environment but a packet of pulsating powerconstantly interacting with this vast energy sea. It proclaimsthat our consciousness may be central in shaping our world.We are always hearing “If you believe it, you can achieve it” or“with positive thought you can change your world.” The Fieldgives you proof! It is [...]
„The Field, the quest for the secret force of the universe“ – je knjiga koja bi se mogla čitati kao udžbenik. Shodno tome, postoje poglavlja (da ne kažem lekcije) koja mi nikako nisu legla (ok, svaka čast naučnicima na epohalnim otkrićima, ali činjenica da su do saznanja dolazili prženjem mozgova pacova i ostalih životinja nikako ne doprinosi užitku prilikom čitanja), ona posle kojih sam bila u fazonu „So what?“ i ona koja su mi se svidela. Da se razumemo, od samog starta ni [...]
This is a bit difficult to read because of its scientific details but very worth it. It confirmed my own spiritual beliefs and gave me much more peace about death and that our energy simply changes when we die. That our loved ones will always be connected to us no matter what happens in the here and now. That time is a circle, and it confirmed that prayer really works which was cool. A substantial read.
The FieldLynne McTaggart is a journalist, not a scientist, and maybe that’s why this scientific book can be understood by anyone. It brings the knowledge of science, metaphysics and religion to our everyday lives, and reading it you feel like a fish, which unexpectedly discovers that he lives immersed in water. What a great journey!
Very interesting book on the theorised energy-source of the universe, and a way to solve quantum mechanics without resorting to 11-dimensional mathematics. It's based on this research (or the research that this book draws upon at any rate) that the ideas in "The Secret" and other self-help books work from: the idea that you can influence outcomes by thought.
dude. this is exactly the kind of book i wish i could rediscover and reread over and over again. makes you look at the world in a whole different way. and puts a bunch of the other fringe stuff you kind of maybe believe totally in a more believable perspective.
