The Results of the 9/11 Peace Intention Experiment

At long last I have got hold of solid data from our 9/11 Peace Intention Experiment to share with you, after a two-and-a-half month search, high and low – that led me inside the US government, the United Nations, the combined Allied Forces and finally, via surreptitious channels, the British Army. For these kinds of projects, my background as an investigative reporter always comes in handy.

 

As you know, the 9/11 Peace Intention Experiment was devised to mark the 10th anniversary of 9/11. Instead of revisiting those terrible images we wanted our acknowledgement of the date to provide a genuine new Twin Towers of East and West in communion and solidarity for peace.

Making Something out of Nothing

I’m continuing to follow the ongoing and now very heated debate about religion and atheism, and was shocked to hear that in a debate last week Richard Dawkins defended his views against those of Dr. Rowan Williams, the Archbishop of Canterbury, by maintaining that what all religious people have the most trouble accepting is the idea that the universe – and therefore all of life – came from nothing.

 

This argument is simply scientific illiteracy. As any high school student of physics is taught, nothing comes from nothing.

Light pulled from thin air

Late last year, with little fanfare, Chris Wilson and his team at Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden pulled off the seemingly impossible. They managed to create light out of thin air.

 

In the process, they also proved what many physicists like Hal Puthoff, director of the institute for Advanced Studies at Austin in Texas, have maintained for many years - that empty space is not empty at all, but a plenum of energy and possibility, something that we can tap into at will.

 

The study was designed to offer first proof of a phenomenon known as the Casimir Effect.

The Militant Atheists: A Case of Bad Intention

Unless you have deliberately turned off every last electronic device in your house, you’ve probably heard about Richard Dawkins’ embarrassing slip up this week.

 

On radio 4, he’d been championing a poll run by his organization, The Richard Dawkins Foundation for Reason and Science, which showed that many people who call themselves Christian do not believe in some of the most basic of Christian doctrines, read the Bible or go to church.

Cancer – a friend indeed

In 2007, my husband Bryan and I paid a visit to Liverpool as guests of Phil and Rosa Hughes. Phil, a homeopath, had asked me to speak in front of his group, but couldn’t afford to pay me my usual speaking fee. I told him that I’d do it for a barter: show us two diehard Beatles fans where John, Paul, George and Ringo first rocked, and I’ll throw in your conference keynote, essentially for free.

 

Rosa’s journey

During our a Magical Mystery Tour through Penny Lane, Strawberry Fields and the Cavern Club, we heard about Rosa’s journey after developing a golf-ball-sized tumor in one breast.

The First Results of the 9/11 Peace Intention Experiments: Feather on the Breath of God

For three-plus months I’ve been patiently waiting for numbers, hoping there would be fewer of them than usual.

 

The numbers to which I’m referring comprise the casualty statistics of the fallen in Afghanistan among both civilians and the military from the combined forces.

Change brains, not minds

Last week during his State of the Union address, President Obama spoke about the need of all Americans (but most particularly those in Congress) to ignore their differences and work together on ‘the mission’ – putting America back together again.

 

Recently, I discovered some fascinating brain evidence, which bolsters the idea that the most constructive thing we can do to connect with people across deep ideological divides during these tough times is to quietly sit together, meditating on neutral topics, but all thinking common thoughts.

A Spiritual FDR

I am watching the extraordinary spectacle of the American presidential nomination with nothing less than astonishment. Here we are in 2012, beset with crises on every front – banking crises, terrorist crises, sovereign-debt crises, climate-change crises, energy crises, food crises, ecological crises – during very year the Mayans warned would mark cataclysmic change, and the best we can come up with as candidates for US President is a rogue’s gallery of business-as-usual opportunists, corporate flunkies and scaredy cats.

10 Ways to Reinvent Your World: My New Year’s Resolutions for 2012

Thank you all for the wonderful comments last week. Many people made fantastic suggestions for our community activism, including ideas for new Intention Experiments on the large corporations or banks. Others bemoaned the fact that we are passive because we’re all just shell-shocked on account of the abrupt and savage end to our comfortable way of life, or the sheer enormity of the tasks involved in fixing our world.

 

Tell this to 96-year-old Grace Boggs.

Grace is the quintessential story of how to make lemonade from lemons. A first generation American from Chinese immigrants, she went to college and then earned a Ph.D in philosophy at Bryn Mawr in th 1940s largely because the anti-Oriental prejudice of the time made it impossible for her to get a job.

What would Gandhi do?

The old hippy in me is cringing. For this historic New Year of 2012, I’m surveying the state of things in the West, particularly in America, and wondering what’s been in the Kool-Aid, particularly the variety that the American left has been drinking. What on earth ever happened to public outrage? Or protest? Or any sense of anger translating into action?

 

The figures continue to be bad around the world. By way of example, the latest American figures show that half of all Americans are struggling to get by on low incomes. The financial markets continue to worsen, soon to eclipse those of the 1930s. Millions of people have been turfed out of their homes, surrounding homeowners have lost $1.86 trillion in home value, 13 million people are out of work, and the collective wealth of American households has dropped by $16 trillion.
