Book Review: The Field

For a newly-recovering materialist, The Field: the Quest for the Secret Force of the Universe by Lynne McTaggart is an excellent introduction to the anomalies ignored or suppressed by mainstream science. Ms. McTaggart, by the way, is one of the speakers interviewed for What the Bleep: Down the Rabbit Hole. The book covers in extensive details many of the themes touched on by that movie.

My favorite section of the book is chapter 2, titled "Beings of Light." It recounts the findings of Fritz-Albert Popp, a German biologist. He was studying a carcinogen called benzo[a]pyrene. In the course of his research, he illuminated the substance with ultraviolet light, and found that it re-emitted the light at a different frequency. He tested other chemicals, and found that the carcinogenic chemicals all altered the frequency of the light, but the harmless chemicals didn't. The frequency that he used to light the chemicals happens to be the same frequency used for what is called "photo-repair." Other researchers had found that damaged cells could be repaired by exposure to ultraviolet light at a certain frequency. If the carcinogens blocked light at that frequency, then he had a potential cause for cancer.

The book has much more of this sort of thing, including remote viewing and random-number generators being affected by important events. I recommend it to recovering materialists, and those still in denial.
