The Studies Which Support the Reality of Manifestation

In the last post, I discussed the first part of my class material on manifesting, which deals with the literature on the subject and the great support for the idea from the scientific community. This post discusses the concept in a little more detail.

The Studies

More and more is being written on the nature of the universe as defined by quantum physics.   Interest among scientists is growing and there is an ever-increasing body of knowledge on this subject.  The question that immediately arises is, why has this not been publicized more widely? One would think that this information would blast forth upon the world scene in such a way as to eclipse every other piece of news. One of the reasons for this lack of attention is that much of the research is written in a highly technical manner and is published in journals which are not read by the general public.  Still, taking this into consideration, it is inexplicable that this information should not be widely known. 

 

I will briefly discuss several paradigm-shattering experiments which support the theory of the universe as a consciousness computer.

 

The International Peace Project in the Middle East took place in August and September of 1988. Researchers in Israel selected a number of participants who were willing to use Transcendental Meditation(TM) to see if there was any effect upon several indicators of violence, including the level of crime, level of armed conflict in Lebanon, number of fires, and number of car accidents.  In addition, measures of improvement included increases in the national stock market and improvements in the national mood.  The participants met at a central location twice a day to practice TM.  During the time that they were meditating, all of the indicators of violence went down.  The crime levels dropped to an unprecedented low and armed conflict in Lebanon was all but at a standstill.  As soon as the participants stopped their meditation at the conclusion of the experiment, violence went back to the pre-experiment levels.

This experiment was based upon previous research which uncovered what is called the Maharishi Effect, named after Maharishi Mahish Yogi. Maharishi had postulated that when a critical mass of individuals stimulated pure consciousness by feeling the peace that occurs during Transcendental Meditation, the quality of life in that area would improve.  Maharishi predicted that 1% of the population in a given area would be needed to produce this effect of coherence in the society around them.  Later experiments refined this number down to the square root of 1% when TM was supplemented with another technique called Yogic Flying.  A 21% reduction in the most violent crime categories was reported when over 4000 people from 62 countries gathered in Washington, D.C. in July of 1993 to practice Transcendental Meditation.

In May of 2004, a study conducted at the Turin, ItalyMedicalSchool showed that patients’ beliefs determined medical outcomes.  A number of patients, all of whom had Parkinson’s Disease, underwent surgery believing that they would receive a drug which would restore their brain chemistry to normal levels.  In reality, they were given a placebo which should have had no effect whatsoever on their medical condition.  However, electronic scans showed that the cells in the patients’ brains responded as if they were actually given the drug.

Another study showed that we affect reality just by watching it.  This work was done by the Weizmann Institute of Science in Rehovat, Israel.  It is discussed in detail in the February 27, 1998 issue of Science Daily.  This article states that the…”Weizmann Institute researchers built a tiny device measuring less than 1 micron in size, which had a barrier and two openings.  They then sent a current of electrons toward the barrier.  The ‘observer’ in this experiment was not human.  Institute scientists used for this purpose a tiny but sophisticated electronic detector that can spot passing electrons.  The quantum ‘observer’s’ capacity to detect electrons could be altered by changing its electrical conductivity or the strength of the current passing through it.  Apart from ‘observing’, or detecting the electrons, the detector had no effect on the current.  Yet the scientists found that the very presence of the detector – ‘observer’ near one of the openings caused changes in the interference pattern of the electron waves passing through the openings of the barrier. In fact, this effect was dependent on the amount of the observation”.
