    If I didn't know it was non-fiction I'd think it was fiction

    This is fantastic! I have never read about all of this scientific research, about the 'field' that connects everything, including thoughts and matter. This is a great book and very well written too. Just great, and it would make a great topic for a discussion group -- great food for thought in here.

    Scientists Explore the Last Frontier - the Zero Point Field

    With an ear for human interest and eye for detail, Lynne McTaggart masterfully tells the true story in THE FIELD of how pioneers in science and consciousness research are working to achieve a more complete understanding of the true nature of reality -- an understanding which includes (rather than ignores) consciousness. THE FIELD describes how scientists have gradually become aware of what appears to be a unifying energy structure in our universe. This 'Zero Point Field' provides us with a simpler explanation for how things work than previous overly-complex ideas require. Simplicity in science is a good thing, because it generally indicates which theories will win out as time goes by. The Zero Point Field theory demonstrates it's elegant simplicity by allowing physicists to derive the famous equation F=ma (rather than take it as a starting assumption), and by helping medical practitioners understand the underlying scientific basis for homeopathy. Our scientific conceptualization of this universe has changed considerably over the last few centuries and now faces one of the biggest overhauls ever -- and THE FIELD demonstrates why the Zero Point Field is likely to be the last frontier for us to explore. THE FIELD is packed with detailed descriptions of some of the most exciting experiments recently conducted by leading researchers in the field of consciousness such as: Cleve Backster, Jacques Benveniste, William Braud, Bob Jahn, Edgar Mitchell, Fritz-Albert Popp, Hal Puthoff, Rupert Sheldrake, Russell Targ, Elisabeth Targ, and Charles Tart. I give this book my highest recommendation.

    I LOVED this book!

    I have never read a book that so rocked my world. It is breathtaking. I cannot recommend it highly enough to anyone who is curious about how the world works, or wants to learn what is beyond traditional science's reduction of the world (and us) to nothing more than mechanical pieces functioning in set ways. No, I take that back. Everyone should read this book. It is THE layman's guide to the cutting edge of physics. I will never look at anything, from the apple on my desk to the beating of my heart to the thoughts in my head, in the same way again. My only warning is that it may cause you many sleepless nights.

    Lynn McTaggart is awesome!

    Lynn McTaggart never fails to amaze me. I learn something new everytime I read one of her books. This is a book I placed in my library and refuse to part with. I've read it multiple times and enjoy more each time. Useful information and inspriing to think the world is still full of magic. This book is easy to read and understand. Lynn talks with various scientists and puts the most cutting edge quantum physics in a language everyone can understand. Discusses scientific research by top universities and by our own government. This book put all the pieces together for me. I've even used names of scientists from this book to find other books written on the subject. I highly recommend this book. I added it to my permanent library.
