    Exploring the Cooperation Instinct

    Tired of living in a dog-eat-dog world? Ready to envision a way to do your personal best while supported by everyone around you? Author Lynne McTaggart encourages us to consider a wealth of recent scientific studies pointing us down a refreshingly different path... toward cooperation. The Bond invites us to find ways to interact with and relate to the highest sense of good in others as the key to mankind's future success. The Bond is organized in three main sections, with part one covering the concept of the Superorganism, part two describing the Pull to Wholeness (how we're born to belong, agree, give, and take turns), and part three about Recovering the Bond. I particularly love reading how recent studies in game theory demonstrate the winningest game strategies involve cooperating and taking turns, rather than adhering to a pure individually competitive model. It's not too great a leap from seeing the benefits of sharing, taking turns, and reciprocity in games to taking similar actions in real life... and I love reading about how humans have been hard-wired biologically to feel best when doing exactly that. I'm inspired to learn that one simple thing we can do to improve our physical health is to become a member of a close-knit group or community; and a simple way to reduce depression and loneliness is to actively help others. One of the most powerful ideas in The Bond has to do with ways we learn to pay attention, and how learning to pay attention to more than we have previously noticed can make a profound difference. McTaggart explains, "When you notice the whole, you allow for and respect more than one version of reality." While opposing ideologies sometimes find little to agree upon, the very idea that there exists a greater wholeness brings healing. The Bond is packed with inspirational ideas and practical tips for anyone interested in finding out how to live their best possible life feeling supported by bonds of connection, rather than struggling in competitive isolation. Highly recommended!

    Highly recommended

    Lynne McTaggart is a gem of wisdom. She bridges together practical perspectives with the invisible, and turns it into something anyone could understand well. To listen to her is like going on an explorative journey with great anticipation.
    Thank you.

    There has been remarkable new study, research and experimentatio

    There has been remarkable new study, research and experimentation taking place over the last thirty years by serious and highly respected scientists all around the world. This work is now revealing how cutting edge new discoveries in quantum physics and parapsychology are beginning to transform and reshape our understanding of human consciousness. Lynne McTaggart has been probing at the heart of this new science, reporting and informing us of the incredible, paradigm-shifting potentials for more than two decades. The Bond is a fascinating interpretation of the results of some of this new research and its potential to create a better world. Bringing us up to date on progress that has been made since her best-selling 2003 book The Field, Lynne has compiled the results from a number of recent studies and synthesized it into a growing consensus which indicates that the life force (consciousness) of all living things are inter-related (bonded) and impact each other in a finite and scientifically verifiable capacity. While many of those among the Establishment prefer to ignore or nit-pic this established fact, the evidence is overwhelming. This book belongs in the library of all open-minded individuals who are interested in raising the level of human evolution. Robert Steven Thomas, author

    Not for the faint-hearted--

    but an intriguing discussion with a scientific overview of how quantum physics "connects" to the rest of life and living, something that Werner Heisenberg wrote about at the turn of the twentieth century. Moreover, McTaggart moves the connection to interpersonal ones. The stuff of good meditation and conversation--maybe even application in making a paradigm shift in thinking.
