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.

Resolution, p. 778.

Starting on Page 115 of The Divine Matrix:

 

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 that population.

... 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...
