Can the 9th Siddhi meditation technique influence the outside world? If this new spiritual technology can be shown to have a physical effect on the outside world, then the power of the practice would be if not verified at least made more believable.
All the Siddhis, healing, prediction, levitation etc. would be given more credence.
The Maharishi (the guru that started and developed the TM movement) believed that when a critical group of meditators meditated together they stimulated Transcendent Being, another name for the Source of Thought, and created a field effect of coherence. And, that this field effect had a marked influence not only on the group of meditators but in the localized society. This influence on society has come to be known as the Maharishi Effect. And, more importantly, this field effect could be measured through various social indices that characterize the quality of life in society, such as the reduction of violent crime in a city.
According to Robert Oates in The Maharishi Effect, written in 1985, and Dr. Keith Wallace writing in The Neurophysiology of Enlightenment, the first experimental evidence for this phenomenon arose in 1974. In this study, scientists observed 11 cities in the United States with populations over 10,000 in which 1% of the population was practicing Transcendental Meditation. They then looked at one major index of the quality of life in these cities, the crime rate, and compared it to the crime rate of 11 other cites matched by population and geographic location. From 1967 to 1972 the crime rate was increasing in all the cities. The cities with over 1% Transcendental Meditation participation showed a decrease in crime of 8.2% from 1972 to 1973 as compared to the year before.
Other scientist replicated these findings. In one study scientists examined 160 cities over a 14 year period (1964 to 1978) to determine the long term effects on crime rate in “one-percent cities.” This study and many others verified the reduction of violent crimes when 1% of a city’s population experienced Transcendental Being regularly.
But, why should this field effect occur. What is it about the experience of Transcendental Being that produces these startling but wonderful results? Many scientists believe that when we meditate, a field much like electromagnetic radiation is produced. But unlike electromagnetic radiation this field is developed with a force that is more refined, more akin to light than magnetism. That is, when an individual experiences Transcendental Being, a kind of halo effect is generated. The rationale for this prediction came from discussions with leading physicists concerning coherent effects seen in physical systems, particularly the laser.
Normal light is emitted in direct proportion to the number of atoms in the light source. When the atoms in a laser are in perfect coherence with each other, a new type of collective behavior emerges characterized by intense orderliness. The individual atoms cease to act independently and begin to behave as one complete coherent system. As a result, the light emitted by the laser is significantly stronger than normal light. It is through coherence that the individual atoms receive their power. The power of light coherence is tremendous. It is powerful enough to burn through steel or to shine a laser beam on the moon. Scientists have found that the intensity of light emitted by a laser of X atoms is magnified enormously to X². If 100 atoms are perfectly in phase or coherent, they will radiate with the intensity of 100² or 10,000 times that of a single atom. This phenomenon is physics is known as Super Radiance.
Similarly, it is thought that when groups of meditators meditate and experience Transcendental Being a super radiance effect is generated. This field of super radiance is significantly more powerful than that experienced by an individual meditator. This super radiance quality of Transcendental Being can be felt by society at large if the number of meditators is large enough. Consequently, scientists began to do research in this area. The focus of the research was to see if the field effect of consciousness stimulated by a group of meditators could affect the EEG coherence between subjects at a large distance. Indeed, the study showed this to be the case. Many other studies too have followed and confirmed the idea that Transcendental Being has a halo or Super Radiance Effect.
This is also the reason we form groups in the Ninth Siddhi to predict Mega lotteries. An individual can predict 3 and 4 number games using 9th Siddhi techniques. But I believe we need to form groups and take advantage of the Super Radiance Effect to predict a Mega lottery. I am interested to know what you think.
