The source for the fact that the square root of 1 percent of a population
can achieve a noticeable consciousness
shift is in the book, The Divine Matrix.
Other documentation is also in that book, much that was not shown in the video, The Science of Miracles.

These and similar studies led to a landmark prject, "International Peace Project in
the Middle East," published in the Journal of Conflict Resolution in 1988.
The footnote for the above statements reads as follows:

Regardless of how different they may appear from one another, every mind contains the pattern of the whole
consciousness. And through that link, we each have direct access to the entire pattern. In other words, we
all have the power to change the hologram of our world. While for some people this is an unconventional
way to think about who we are, for others it's perfectly aligned with their beliefs and experiences.
Scientific studies support these principles and have found that when people within a group share a common
experience of consciousness, the effects can be detected beyond the group itself and even outside the building
where the individuals are meeting. Clearly, inner experiences are being carried through some subtle conduit in
a way that's not restricted by the so-called laws of physics or limited to the immediate surroundings.
One example of this phenomenon is evident in the effect that Transcendental Meditation (TM) can have
upon large populations.
In 1972, 24 cities in the U.S. with populations over 10,000 experienced meaningful changes in their communities
when as few as one percent (100 people) participated in the studies. Those involved used specific meditation
techniques to create the inner experiences of peace that were mirrored in the world around them. This is called
the "Maharishi Effect" in honor of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, who stated that when one percent of a population
practiced the methods of meditation that he offered, there would be a reduction in violence and crime for
... During the Israeli-Lebanese war of the early 1980s, practitiioners were trained in precise techniques of
TM to create peace in their bodies, rather than simply thinking about it in their minds or praying for it to occur.
On specific days of the month, at specific times each day, these people were positioned within the war-torn
areas of the Middle East. During the window of time that they were at peace, terrorist incidents, crimes against
people, emergency-room visits, and traffic accidents all declined in number. When the participants stopped
their practice, the statistics reversed. These studies confirmed the earlier findings: When a small percentage of
the population achieved peace within themselves, that peace was reflected in the world around them.
The results took into account the days of the week, holidays, and even lunar cycles; and they were so
consistent that the researchers were able to identify the minimum number of people needed to experience
inner peace before it's mirrored in the surrounding world: the square root of one percent of the population.
This represents only the base number required for the effect to begin -- the more people participate, the
more pronounced the outcome.
...regardless of whether it's a small community, a church congregation, a large city, or the entire planet...
