1. What exactly is 'The
The Field is the Zero Point
a subatomic field of unimaginably large quantum energy in so-called
space. If you add up all the movement of all the particles of all
in the universe, you come up with a vast inexhaustible energy source
sitting there unobtrusively in the background of the empty space around
us, like one all-pervasive, supercharged backdrop. To give you some
of the magnitude of that power, the energy in a single cubic yard of
space is enough to boil all the oceans of the world.
The Field connects
the universe to everything else, like some vast invisible web. The
published by these scientists written about in The Field show that the
solid stable stuff we call matter is an illusion and is simply
particles constantly moving and being gripped on by the background sea
of energy. Everything in our world, no matter how heavy or large, boils
down to a collection of electric charges interacting with the Zero

discovery of the

may be able to travel beyond his own solar system.
Perhaps more important, the
of the Zero Point Field implies that all matter in the universe is
by quantum waves, which are spread out through time and space, and
can carry on to infinity, tying one part of the universe to every other
part. The idea of The Field might just offer a scientific explanation

3. Are human beings
made of this
same basic material?
Human beings, on their most
level, are packets of quantum energy constantly exchanging
with this heaving energy sea. The frontier scientists I interviewed
have amassed evidence showing that living things emit a weak radiation,
and that this may be one of the most crucial aspects of biological
A German physicist called Fritz-Albert Popp has discovered that humans
emit highly coherent photons - the tiniest particles of light. One of
most essential sources of these are DNA, which may mean that DNA

and Larry Dossey have all hailed The Field as providing a radical new

One discovery is that every
emits its own unique frequency, which is used for communication. French
scientists have shown that you can record the frequency of a molecule,
play it to another molecule and the signal itself can take the place of
chemicals in initiating biological processes. The prevailing idea -
chemical reactions occur because chemicals collide with each other -
always been too dependent upon chance and requires a good deal of time.
It cannot account for the speed of biological processes-like anger,
sadness or fear. Perhaps most controversial of all, the scientists
on the frontier have also discovered that the basic of all the brain's
functions have to do with the interaction between the brain and the
Zero Point field. New evidence shows the brain's conversations with
the body might also occur on the quantum level, with waves and
rather with chemical or electrical impulses alone. In fact, studies in
America on humans and animals show that the cerebral cortex responds to
certain limited bands of frequencies.
As incredible as it seems,
that when we see things, we are reading information from the Zero
Field on a quantum level and our brain 'reads out' this information
to create the images we see in front of us. Some scientists have gone
far as to say that our memories don't sit inside our heads at all. Our
brains are simply the retrieval and read-out mechanism of the ultimate
storage medium - The Field.

remarkable men and women I made incredible discoveries. What they were

spiritual healing might work. Their theories and experiments added up
a new science, a radically new view of the world.
