I have only recently been introduced to the work of this brilliant writer and investigator, David Wilcock (who reputedly is the reincarnation of Edgar Cayce). But I have greatly enjoyed reading his book.

The book is a masterpiece, a bringing together of centuries’ or more work of delving into the mysteries of the universe, understandings about consciousness, energy, physics, time, space and so forth, combined with Wilcock’s own original thinking and understandings.

The “Source Field” is Wilcock’s

Slowly, I may one day read this entire book. As fascinated as I am by the work of the seeming hundreds of scientists that Wilcock surveys, and as important as I believe it is to present all their work in a way that can thoroughly blow the reader's mind with the implications and encourage a conscious paradigm shift, I cannot support Wilcock's methods. While he respects the work of these scientists work enough to present it all convincingly, thoroughly and in detail, it seems that every time he ta ...more
I have to say that I really loved this book. It is packed full of so many strange and fascinating studies, backed up by scientific research, that it blew my mind! All the questions I have ever asked myself, but never found an answer for, seem to be answered by this book. Definitely worth the read.

I decided to read this as a joke and figured I would try and see what all the 2012 hype is all about. I should have done my research. David Wilcock is a conspiracy theorist who believes that he is the reincarnation of early 20th century "psychic" Edgar Cayce. The first section of the book is all about telepathy and lucid dreaming and the interconnectedness of everything typical new age stuff, then the middle part was an attempt at providing a unified field theory for physics, that was the only s ...more

I listened to the book on my iPod, downloaded from It was read by David Wilcock himself, who is a charismatic, enthusiastic, and entertaining reader. I don't know if I could have waded through all of his documented evidence on the printed page, but his voice made the findings come alive! If all science textbooks were read to our children by David Wilcock, we would have a lot more young people interested in science.

I feel that the beauty of David's book is that he makes a powerful su
I did not read this entire book. After reading a few chapters, I realized it is just crackpot science. This book is what happens when a filmmaker pretends to understand history and science. I give this book the lowest possible rating--but if I could give it 0 stars, I would.

The book starts out with the Backster effect. Backster used polygraphs for many years, and on a whim he connected a polygraph to a plant. He found that the plant's readings were not steady, but showed some movement. Backster

This is a very interesting book. It is one to which I found a lot of resonance. The book covers a very wide area, as one would expect from the title. It is how the Source, or source field , affects our lives. Both off and on Earth. David Wilcock uses a lot of scientific data to back up the theories he proposes. A lot of which can be independently verified. The Scientists, even if not all of their work.

If like myself, you understand the world around us to be one of energy, I recommend this book!
This is about way more than the 2012 prophecies. In that regard I think the title is a little misleading. I'm almost done with this book and man does it deliver! Enquiring minds want to know and there is a lot to know! It is deep and profound and I really appreciate David Wilcock putting it in laymen terms as he exposes the wizards behind the world's curtain. The rabbit hole goes deep my friends and it would do us a world of good to be educated as ignorance keeps one controlled and asleep. Dare ...more
Great book that takes you places where you have never been. I haven't seen any other book that gathers so much scientific information (over 30+ years-worth) to create a great theory not only for 2012 and the coming of a new age, but also for the whole universe and how it works. This book really great. For me, the source field has always been there and makes sense to me. But this book is also great for skeptics and people who are quite new to the subject or have even refused to open up to it. It' ...more
Proposes a larger Big Science that addresses the mysteries of existence. His Big Science incorporates 'Life', evolutionary leaps and Consciousness. A science that can explain formerly labelled paranormal phenomena. A unifying science that builds upon and goes beyond Einstein's Relativity, Quantum Science and Darwin's Theory of Evolution. It offers an alternative explanation to the dual wave/particle nature of matter, evolution of life upon this planet and in the universe, consciousness, the Quan ...more

If you want to peer in back of the curtain, if your mind is open, if you like weird science and science that reads as fiction, then this book is for you. I have rarely read a nonfiction so fast. Taking the best of the 1970's wave of weird science (pyramid power, black holes etc) and fast forwarding to what we know today takes one's breath away. This book will challenge what you accept as reality, provoke you to think and go within for answers. Kudos to David. Enjoy!
Nadine May
David has written a fantastic & informative book with many possible conclusion about topics on the paranormal, UFO, and parallel realities. Proving that time and our 3D reality is an illusion and that the mysteries that have puzzled many scientist, historians and explorers all can be explained. His book is great to read during these troublesome times. In many ways its uplifting and inspirational to have questions answered that gives hope to our existence as human beings.
Great collection of information and knowledge. The material is dense and it did take me more than a couple of sittings to finish it. This book really does link the dots and fill in the blanks especially for anyone who does their on side research. If you have ever had your own intuition or theory on a particular question or event, if you read this book you'll definitely will be thinking, "ohhhh, that's makes sense, that's was i thought it was like too."
JR Simons
As a big Star Wars fan, I want nothing more than for The Force to be with us, and I also believe that our ancient religious traditions and modern science are in agreement with me on this considering the fact that quantum mechanics, Buddhist philosophies of interconnectedness, and even Paul's conception of the body of Christ all hint at this connection. Wilcock makes a great case for its existence, albeit in very weak form due to a variety of reasons, when he explains things like quantum physics ...more

I loved this book! The information in this book questions how the world works, and offers an understanding that seems impossible and even magical. It speculates that there is more out there than we, as a whole, dare to dream! Even if not all of it is true, it makes you think. Yay for David Wilcock!
I have read this book about 10 times already. Each time I understand a little more. Read it to understand much about yourself, your intuition and the universe. I'll come back with a more complete review later

Excellent well researched content. Many thoughtful ideas and revelations about the movement of the world into the new dimension.
Paul Vreeland
Lots of way-out-there claims but then again a book about real science would be really boring!
What a waste of my money.

This will eventually be an all-inclusive and comprehensive review of the entire book, as I read much of this book during 2012, and was a stanch believer in what Wilcock said, since it correlated with many of the things I was looking into:
Quantum Mechanics
Computers Require Quantum Mechanics

I read this book with an open mind. I ended up using 2 years to read it, mostly because some of the chapters are so tedious, heavy on names and old mythological storytelling-, interpretation and speculation. There are some interesting fact and studies cited in the book, and David Wilcock does bring about an interesting theory about the cosmos, but to be honest there is also a lot of dubious science and anecdotes touted as "science" and "documented cases". For example on page 430 he writes: "Ther ...more

This books research connects the earliest everyday living records through time to the present. Technology viewing through modern day equipment is used to verify comparisons in research. Presented in this book, the DNA code evolves in sequences of charted galactic energy. Education through focus in self-awareness of such events and daily; could increase particular useable energies, and direct ones then attached path with them. Energy in its many forms does have an effect on life. To place one’s s ...more
This book felt like an underhanded effort for a new age religiouso to spread the word. He was so bully with his conclusions and how they add up to his new-agey mindset that I couldn't take it anymore even though there is some really great and astounding information in this book.

The book is strongest when he describes how pine cone imagery is present in all religions from antiquity to today and how it is a reference to the pineal gland. I feel convinced that the ancients knew a lot more about the

I finished this book some time ago, though I never posted my comments for I haven't been on Goodreads in quite some time.

Overall, I found The Source Field Investigations to be a well-researched, thoughtful and provocative compilation of scientific principles and theories that support the understanding of a universe that is much greater than any of us imagined.

In this one book, David Wilcock brings together a wide variety of concepts that he presents with a great deal of evidence in support of

This book provided me with a LOT of scientific/paranormal fodder to mull about in my head. This is all stuff I'd love to believe but I think I will always feel shaky on, credibility wise. Something I had issues with is that the author made the point that the planets' orbits around the Sun are circular and went off on a tangent about the mathematical connections between them - but the reality is that they're elliptical, are they not? Why would this fundamental piece of data be misconstrued? And t ...more
I was given a copy of this book to peruse along with the comment, "Here's an alternate way for you to look at the universe." I tried reading the book with an open mind, but quickly realized how unscientific and suspect it was.

Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof — the author fails to provide sufficient logical and scientific evidence for his manifold secrets and conspiracies. He asks me to believe in patterns and explanations that defy common sense and which ignore the laws of physi
This book was one chosen by my book club. I only read to page 161 before deciding it wasn't worth finishing. I found it tedious to read, and tended to fall asleep if I was reading it in the evening. The author presents a lot of interesting facts, but doesn't bring them together in a coherent way. I feel that his conclusions are heavy on speculation and based on dubious science and anecdotes. --I was surprised that this book received such a high average rating.
If anything in this book is true it alters everything we in Western Civilization belief. There is so much in it that it is hard to absorb and a lot is covered in a very slim manner. What struck me the most is that the cosmology he describes matches very close the beliefs of native american people and helped me understand them better by putting a quasi-scientific spin on them. Read for Scripps Book Club.

Wow! I could not put down the book, each time I stopped to take a break, the thought of reading the next page got me excited. This was actually the first book I ever read from cover to cover and began my adventure of reading, Especially since it first was published in hardcover. I've followed David's work when i began my "Conscious Awakening" back in '09, '10, my ending years of sophomore year in highschool. When he announce that hes was writing the book I immediately reacted in my mind " I got ...more
Quite engaging with concepts and ideas that are interesting. They do not feel plausible though and further research shows source unreliability. But still a great read! It gave me the reason and motivation to investigate in paranormal phenomena. And for that I am totally grateful for this book.
