The Field that Lynne McTaggart refers to in this investigation into reincarnation and past lives is the Zero Point Field. She compares the belief to someone accidentially tuning into someone's information and thinking that the memories they experience are their own from a former life. Therefore, whether you are a firm believer in reincarnation or a complete avowed skeptic, you'll find "The Field : The Quest for the Secret Force of the Universe," a very interesting read.
McTaggart uses a wide range of scientific information which prevents the book from seeming short sighted. This provides a well balanced book that explores the idea that motive is a vacuum, hence the Zero Point Field (ZPF) which is somewhat like space and is responsible for the seemingly outside the envelope human potential and achievements. Consciousness is compared to a frequency that leads to faith in whatever you happen to believe in and unifies it with science.
Many people turn to homeopathic healing, shamanism and other properties that are not inside what is considered the normal reaction by the mainstream. McTaggart simply explores another side of this phenomenon. Belief in our own influence on our health, prosperity, future, through prayer is not a long step to take from natural healing techniques used by many.
This exploration into another aspect of our existence is a remarkable work and the first seven chapters should not be missed by anyone. You'll find, The Field: The Quest for the Secret Force of the Universe by Lynne McTaggart to be of great interest no matter what your spiritual beliefs.
