“This book is for everyone, but especially those who...”

Written on: 11/03/2008 by Nordica (1 review written)

This book is for everyone, but especially those who are open and curious enough to wonder what next in our scientific and human evolution and way of thinking and perceiving the world we live in. It was concise and factual but included the human element from the people she was reporting about.

The author speculates in the end on the context of this new scientific understanding and how it may relate for example to our understanding on how acupuncture and homeopathy might work, and she does so… Read Full Review

“Terry Kelly's review is intended to prejudice without...”

Written on: 08/10/2007 by Dan Drumm (1 review written)

Terry Kelly's review is intended to prejudice without providing anything more than an opinion. This book has an ample Bibliography, citing its sources, and is just what it says it is: science that is that is unpopular with an established atheistic scientific attitude intent on protecting itself and its metaphysics against change. As McTaggart mentions in her interesting Prologue "These ideas were the stuff of treason. In many cases, these scientists have had to fight a rearguard action against… Read Full Review

“Lynne McTaggart, The Field: The Quest for the Secret...”

Written on: 08/05/2006 by Terry Kelly (1 review written)

Lynne McTaggart, The Field: The Quest for the Secret Force of the Universe is bad science with lots of big words and nebulous concepts which might look impressive to an uncritical reader. But it is not actually scientific in approach. It will probably be read and considered deep and meaningful by "well educated " and literate people who lack a critical and curious perspective… Read Full Review

Nordica's Response to Terry Kelly's Review

Written on: 11/03/2008

I disagree with this review because...<br/><br/>for a few reasons, mainly because of his comments about it not being scientific. Lynn is not a scientist but a reporter, she doesn't claim to be a scientist, she is simply reporting on the findings of a number of scientists and their research which has taken place over a number of decades. It is only in the last chapter that she proposes that some of the findings of this research (that have been established) might explain how alternative medicine works. But the significance and purpose of reporting on these findings are far beyond proving or disproving any alternative medicine, although it can not be over looked in the context of the conclusions.<br/><br/>

Brenhin's Response to Terry Kelly's Review

Written on: 01/01/2008

In case you were unable to see, this quote refers specifically, and critically to you. So I will reiterate it:
<p>As Louis be Broglie, the Noble Laureate in Physics put it: "History shows very clearly that the advances of science have always been frustrated by the TYRANNICAL INFLUENCES of certain preconceived notions which were turned into unassailable dogmas.
<p>
For that reason alone every serious scientist should periodically make a profound re-examination of his basic principles."
