(The Field, by Lynne McTaggart, HarperCollins (Element), 2003)

I will eventually comment on this book at length but for now I will quote some of the cover blurb to give you some idea of it.

“This important book stretches the imagination...
We are on the verge of another revolution in our understanding of the universe.”
(Arthur C. Clarke)

“During the past few decades, science has begun to prove what ancient myth and religion has always espoused: that there may be such a thing as a life force. Frontier scientists all over the globe have produced extraordinary evidence to show that an energy field - the Zero Point Field - connects everything in the universe, and we ourselves are part of this vast dynamic cobweb of energy exchange.

Lynne McTaggart's book is a highly readable scientific detective story which reveals how the Field is responsible for many of the most profound human mysteries, from alternative medicine and spritual healing to extra-sensory perception and the collective unconscious.”

Similarly to some of my comments on the book The Akashic Field, this book is talking about the same phenomenon as myself but from a different perspective. I speak of the nature and dynamics of the field itself and the world that arises there from, whilst contemporary science speaks of how the field appears from a perspective within the world, and what its effects are like when experienced from within the world. In this sense this book explores the empirical dimension of the issue whilst I explore the transcendent dimension, both are essential and complementary avenues of enquiry. Books such as this one and "The Akashic Field" are an excellent and approachable introduction to the ideas discussed on this website.
