Science has begun to prove what ancient myth and religion has always espoused: that there may be such a thing as a life force. During the past few decades, respected 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 network of energy exchange.

Lynne McTaggart, indefatigable investigative journalist, has spent four years researching this area where science meets the New Age to create this story of scientific explorers, their groundbreaking work, and its controversial implications. Until now, conservative scientists have done their best to rule "god" out of their equations. This book shows why the Zero Point Field makes all things possible: all things connected in space and time.

The Field also reveals a radical new biological paradigm -- that on our most fundamental level, the human mind and body are not distinct and separate from their environment, but a bundle of pulsating power constantly interacting with this vast energy sea. Here, in so-called dead space, may lay the key to many of life's processes, from how cells communicate to how organisms actually take shape. The Field is responsible for our mind's highest functions -- our memory, intuition, and creativity. It is the force that finally determines whether we are healthy or ill, the force that must be tapped in order to heal.

Original and well documented with eminently distinguished sources, The Field also lifts many areas from the level of myth into the realm of hard science. It offers a scientific explanation for many of the most profound human mysteries, from how alternative medicine, spiritual healing, and extrasensory perception work to the existence of the collective unconscious. A highly readable scientific detective story, The Field is the ultimate breakthrough book. It presents a bold new theory that will change your perception of the way your mind and body work.
