I love it when we have rational people like Lynne McTaggart writing books such as this one. Her writing is scientificly based as she discusses a new world view based on the awakening of our One-ness rather than that sense of separation which causes all the problems in our world. The bond she talks of is the same unity consciousness which spiritual masters of all ages have pointed to as the primary ingredient necessary for a healing to take place, not only within out own minds, but within society and the world at large. She makes it seem like this unity could so easily take place throughout the world, if only we were willing to look beyond the illusion of difference and separateness which we cling to, rather then exploring our inner potentiality of One-ness. Along with a very clear book called THE ONE  the ideas in McTaggarts book will come to life for the reader.

In this book McTaggart uses quantum theory and applies it to humanity and relationships. "Matter in the subatomic world cannot be understood in isolation but only within a complex web of relationships, forever indivisible...At it's most elemental, physical matter not only isn't an anything yet, but remains something indeterminate until out consciousness becomes involved with it...there is no "us" and "them" only a constantly transforming "we"." (location 746 on e-book, Chapter 1). The book gives a good description the basics of quantum theory and uses it to demonstrate the "oneness" of humanity. McTaggart also looks at Darwinism and our individualist Western culture and demonstrates that it makes sick and how social cohesiveness is good for our health. She argues that we all have a need to agree and that our natural instinct is to collaborate or Bond with each other. "Rather than domination, our most basic urge is to reach out to another human being, even at cost to ourselves" (Location 2481 Ch. 7). She also emphasises the importance of the ripple effect in changing the world.

I found this to be an amazing and inspiring book. It is a book that bridges science and spirituality. After reading it, I had a new understanding about the importance of relationships in creating a happy life.

At this turning point in our evolutionary journey we see oracles appear, messengers, who articulate the new era. Lynne McTaggart is such an oracle and she reminds us that somewhere along the way we stepped out of our true nature and took the path of separateness and independence. This book is an evidence based work of wisdom that tells us why we need to, and how we can, return to our true nature in simply following our essential impulse to connect, to once again know the peace of holism.

There is no comparison to her previous book "The Field"
Save your money.
I'm not recommend it.

Should be a text for all physics courses.

Although I think the book is missing a major, if not the main, reason that western society has deteriorated (psychopaths that have risen to the top of the food chain and influenced society - read `Snakes in Suits', `Political Ponerology', and `Puzzling People' to name just a few) it does give many interesting examples that normal humans thrive in many ways in a society based on principles of sharing and mutual support and that the lack or deterioration of such a connection or bond is at the root of many ills and problems that we face as a society.

Her overall premise is that there is a bond to life that has not been fully explored that flies in the face of accepted beliefs and theories such as Darwin's evolution and Dawkin's selfish gene and I have to say that I really like her books because they open me up to new areas of thinking and research.
