What really stopped the melt down at Fukushima? I think its more than scientific intervention, but mental intervention. Please read the following article which appeared in March 2011 (author unknown)
THE POWER of focused human consciousness by way of meditation has demonstrably shaped and influenced certain aspects of our world—matter, crime rates, violent civil strife, and even terrorism—in experiment after experiment, study after study. In other words, we have proven the ability to shape reality through conscious intention. And the impact of these efforts in many cases has alleviated destructively violent episodes and conflicts as well as altered the structure and behavior of matter under controlled conditions.
Let us begin with the latter, altering the structure and behavior of matter, since that is what the collective meditation would essentially and most obviously be doing at Fukushima. Physicist and former chairman of the materials science department at Stanford University, Dr. William Tiller, along with his research team, has carried out a series of experiments to test human consciousness on matter under rigorously controlled conditions, as explained in his book, Conscious Acts of Creation: The Emergence of a New Physics.
Their first step was to create a core group of people trained in deep meditation with “decades of regular practice.” This group would then enter into a meditative state, or an “ordered mode of heart function,” as Tiller describes it, with the same goal in mind and from there they would send a specific intention to an electrical device which was shielded from any outside influences (strange, yes, but stay with me!) By imprinting a specific human intention on this device and placing the device close by a container of water, Tiller and company succeeded in moving the pH level in the water upwards and downwards by a large amount, precisely in accord with the imprinted intention. They also directly increased the thermodynamic activity of in vitro enzyme, and significantly lessened the development period for fruit fly larvae while increasing its vitality. Interestingly, once the imprinted intention device was removed from the area where the tests had occurred, the room was still conditioned to respond to the intention for up to a year in some cases.
These experiments unquestionably demonstrate: the ability of focused human consciousness or intention to create, in the words of Dr. Tiller, “a robust effect in what we call physical reality.” He goes on to conclude that “consciousness-directed intention is a powerful force…”
Yet, still, could such a meditative group overcome or transcend the distance and area? The answer appears to be a yes. And that brings us to the documented and peer reviewed studies where focused meditative groups have created peace and coherence, and have brought about qualitative improvements in chaotic and conflict ridden environments.
In his book, Permanent Peace, Robert Oates writes, “research indicates that the minds of people who are expert in meditation, when gathered together to meditate in one location, radiate harmony and peacefulness through an underlying field of consciousness.” In what was has been dubbed “the peace experiments,” Oates describes numerous examples of meditative groups using only their minds and hearts to reduce crime, warfare and terrorism. Interestingly, the documented results from these meditative assemblies, far from being fluff, have been subjected to rigorous scientific analysis and published in mainstream academic journals. “As unlikely as the premise may sound,” says Dr. Robert Gurr, Emeritus Professor of Government and Politics at the University of Maryland, “I think we have to take these studies seriously.”
One of the most impressive studies that Oates mentions is one based on Rand Corporation statistics, a well-respected think tank which took the results from a global meditative experiment through the scientific ringer. Oates writes that the Rand statistics demonstrate that “during the three largest Transcendental Meditation assemblies ever held in the West—near or exceeding 7,000 people at each assembly—terrorism declined worldwide by 72%.”
Harvard-trained quantum physicist, John Hagelin, a leader and pioneer in the power of human consciousness, describes another impressive experiment in his book, A Manual for a Perfect Government. In August and September of 1983, during the Lebanese War, a group of study participants in Israel using a form of collective meditation (or deeply focused consciousness) succeeded in reducing war intensity by 34% and war deaths by 76%. The same studies were performed during the proceeding six-month period and then expanded to include a 27-month period, with even better results, including a “66% mean increase in level of cooperation among antagonists.”
The peace experiments also show that a meditative group—and it does not have to be a very large one—can radiate harmony and coherence not only over large distances, but can do so without even being near the vicinity they are focused upon. And when we consider that human consciousness can indeed influence matter, it is not a far leap to make to imagine a trained meditative group cooling down those reactors from anywhere in the world without ever going near the Fukushima nuclear power plant.
This may make more sense when we consider a few things. First, there is no distance to traverse when our minds are in a deep meditative state. Theologian Matthew Fox points out that “the suspension of time and motion …is what occurs when a person is in a deep meditative state.” Futurist Kay Massengale writes that “the practice of meditation allows one to perceive the whole,” and she goes on to quote physician Deepak Chopra, who explains that in meditation we ”bypass the limited, bounded choices that we are used to making and go directly to the solution of any problem.”
Next, in quantum physics, there has been a fairly recent discovery called non-locality, hailed by some as the “most momentous discovery in the history of science,” which has shown that there is an instantaneous communication or responsiveness at the deepest levels of existence which transcends distance, space and time. This may help us to begin to understand how deep meditation, or focused human consciousness, can impact matter and chaotic environments in the above experiments: it simply operates at a much deeper level of being where time and distance cease to exist. “To put the hypothesis compactly,” explains Oates, “the human mind can bring peace (or stability) to the world, because it is one with the world.”
However focused human intention works, what we know for certain is that it does work. And at Fukushima, and for the country of Japan, every hour and every minute at this point is crucial. We have nothing to lose by giving this unorthodox approach a try, and everything to gain if it works in cooling down the nuclear reactors. We also have the incredible opportunity here to witness the emergence of a new (though old) human technology greater than anything we have ever discovered outside of ourselves: the focused power of our hearts and minds, which, interestingly enough, our sages and spiritual traditions have always pointed us toward. The implications could be enormous for our future and how we maintain and use energy.
But the people of Japan are waiting and praying right now. Time is truly of the essence as reactors get hotter and radiation spews into the atmosphere. We must transcend our traditional approaches to problems and solutions that alone may not work, and really think outside of the box and do what could work.
