Today on the BBC’s much beloved Radio 4, which offers a morning slot called Thought for the Day, some short topic about the state of the world explored by a local vicar about the state of the world, some reverend was chewing over the idea that evil is mostly a group dynamic.
Every so often something happens that restores my faith in the power of the truth. This rarely happens when it comes to health care. Modern medicine is one of the big, dangerous monoliths of our time, a stark symbol of the competitive mindset and the industrial age – the triumph of the machine over the human being.
I don’t know about you, but I’m tired of the news. I tired of hearing about how the world is falling down, tired of newspaper headlines screaming ‘AIN’T IT AWFUL.’ I’m tired of what journalism has become: the fount of bad news. I’m tired of bad news, period.
I’m tired of it because I know it’s not true. I know that there are millions of initiatives all around the planet, even in the most unlikely nooks and crannies, of people who are making use of the crises we now face in every area of our lives – the falling-down world we now have — to make our world it anew.
Our survey to discover if lives changed among those who participated in our historic 9/11 Peace Intention Experiment offers even more powerful evidence of the extraordinary and unique healing power of group intention: when you send healing as a group you end up healing yourself.
Although this is just a sampling of the data still coming in, I thought it was interesting enough to share.
I know first-hand about a falling-down world. My father, the bright youngest child of working-class Irish, was more an inventor than a straightforward engineer. At the end of the Second World War, he designed a revolutionary kind of heating system for all the new homes being built for returning vets. In order to fund the start-up, he found two partners willing to invest. They would handle the sales and finance, while he would focus on the designs and shop floor. They even gave their company a name that sounded a little like America, a nod to the patriotic mood of the times.
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.
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.
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.
