Back to the field

Going on holiday a couple of weeks ago, I grabbed a couple of books for poolside reading. Being a tad over serious sometimes, they were non fiction, re- reads in fact. Books that I had had for ages but which I thought were worth re visiting.

One of these was the The Field by Lynne McTaggart.  Originally published over 5 years ago, I was struck by how ahead of her time she was, and how she had influenced me in my thinking as I was writing my own book. (Aspects of Reality- a user’s guide to the universe).

There has been so much in the press and on social media lately about the science of our fundamental reality. It seems that another level of awareness is developing, driven by looking at the nature of the very particles that make up us and our universe (quantum mechanics). Concepts like our fundamental interconnectedness on a quantum level and the growing awareness that the very human consciousness which makes us us may be actually not a separate individual entity but inherent in every atom of the universe and  indeed may even precede creation (biocentrism), are being given serious consideration. The interesting thing is that this is not new knowledge. Individual great thinkers and scientists have been researching and theorising along these lines for many many years. They have just been ignored by the mainstream. As Lynne herself said, people have been working separately, and because of non conventional results from their experiments, have kept their heads down for fear of ridicule by the establishment. There is a groundswell now though and formerly what were considered crack pot views seem to be moving into general acceptance and awareness.

It is actually almost a revolution, and The Field is the story of this revolution in the making. Look at it if you have time. It is worth  looking at some of the concepts that she pulled together and try and explain how they fit into our growing new big picture of life, the universe and everything.
