After our successful Germination Intention Experiment, and the interesting results we got from our three Water Intention Experiments, psychologist Dr. Gary Schwartz, director of the Laboratory for Advances in Consciousness and Health at the University of Arizona, and I decided to merge the two by carrying out a Water Germination Experiment. We’d try another Germination Experiment, but this time we would send the ‘grow’ instructions to the water, not directly to the seeds themselves.
With this study we wished to delve further into water, by testing whether intention can changes the molecular structure of water. This time, we decided to work with Rustum Roy, professor of materials science at Pennsylvania State University, who is arguably one of the world’s experts on water. We wished ascertain whether there were any changes in the structural organization of our water sample by looking for any changes in the scattering of light waves through our water sample.
After all these small-scale studies of leaves and seeds and water, The Intention Experiment decided to take a giant leap, to examine whether ‘group mind’ has the power to lower violence and restore peace. The plan was to have readers all over the world join forces on our website to send peace to a particular war-torn area.
Psychologist Dr. Gary Schwartz, director of the Center for Advances in Consciousness and Health at the University of Arizona, generously volunteered to carry out our first experiment. Dr. Schwartz has a great deal of experience carrying out experiments in energy healing, and is the first scientist to have photographed light (biophoton) emissions from living things through his super-cooled digital CCD camera system, which not only creates digital photos of biophoton emissions, but analyzes and counts them, one by one.
This Intention Experiment had been planned 18 months ago, when Dr. Masaru Emoto, author of Messages in Water, approached me with the idea of using an Intention Experiment to purify the water in Lake Biwa.
This time we worked with Dr. Jeffrey Fannin, director of the Center for Cognitive Enhancement. Dr. Fannin holds a Ph.D in psychology, has been involved in neuroscience for many years and has a good deal of experience in ‘brain mapping’ states of mental disorder such as anxiety, depression or attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder.
The Intention Experiment first ran two Peace Intention Experiments, first in 2008 when we targeted Sri Lanka, and then on the tenth anniversary of 9/11, when we focused on the two most violent provinces in Afghanistan. Both experiments showed stunning positive effects, with large decreases in deaths and injuries.
Russian physicist Dr. Konstantin Korotkov of St. Petersburg State Technical University invented the Gas Discharge Visualization (GDV) technique, which makes use of state-of-the-art optics, digitized television matrices and a powerful computer. Ordinarily, a living thing will dribble out the faintest pulse of photons, perceptible only to the most sensitive equipment in conditions of utter pitch black.
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.
This experiment was set up roughly similar to the first Water Experiment run by Russian physicist Konstantin Korotkov on November 30 — but with two differences. This time, we used a very specific intention with our Experimental Sample of water. We also had a Control Sample; we set up an identical beaker of water with distilled water from the same source, which would not be sent intention.
Since June 2007, The Intention Experiment has been carrying out a series of ‘Germination Intention Experiments’ with noted psychologist Dr. Gary Schwartz and his laboratory team at the University of Arizona to test whether intention can affect the growth of plants.
This was our first attempt to clean up polluted water. We decided to start a very subtle measure: water’s ‘energetic footprint’, as measured by Russian physicist Dr. Konstantin Korotkov’s Gas Discharge Visualization (GDV) technique, which uses sophisticated technology to capture the tiny pulse of photons emitted by all living things by stimulating them into an excited state so that they shine millions of times more intensely than normal.
