The field explained

Lynne McTaggart’s revolutionary book, looking at the world on a quantum level and how this affects us all, is simply called “ The Field ”. The first question is then, what is this field that she talks about?

This field is just a name for the quantum sea of light in which we live. When you look at us and our universe we seem to be solid objects, living in a solid world. This is, of course, just an illusion. We and all around us are made, due to our atomic structure, at base of nothing more than parcels of vibrating energy in different combinations. The study of this vibrating energy, or quanta, is what quantum mechanics is all about. At this level the predictability of matter that conventional physics relies on just does not happen. The school text books which showed energy in always in discrete bundles simply does not apply.

Aspects of reality

There are three strange quantum mechanics principles which make things interesting.

  • Sometimes the particles are just, well particles. Sometimes, seemingly randomly, they can become waves. Waves can spread out over large regions of space and time. They can jump gaps. They can sometimes penetrate thing that are thought of as impenetrable.
  • The principle of Non Location holds that once particles have been in contact they are forever linked, even if they end up separated by millions of miles. The universe is thus one mesh of interlinked energy.
  • No particle ever stays at rest. They are always in motion. There is a field of energy (zero point field) which permeates all of existence and which is constantly interacting with these sub atomic particles. The universe is not stable or static but a seething mass of sub atomic particles popping fleetingly in and out of existence.

So, as human beings we live in this field of interlinked pulsating energy. We are part of it. We are not lone individuals but part of a much bigger picture. Even more interesting, at some level we can be seen to direct it. Next week I will look at how this is seemingly done.
