Recent evidence and research done in several metropolitan and major areas in the United States (Washington D.C. Seattle etc.) has shown that collective meditation (en masse) and intentional thinking can acftually decrease violence within these areas, most notalbly the experiments and collective meditaions carried out by transcendental mediation advoacte and partical/quantum physicist John Hagelin in Washington D.C. in 1993.
“A study I conducted in the summer of 1993 in Washington,
DC, shows rising crime levels over a period of six months,
which take place every year as the temperature gets hotter
between the winter and the summer. People stay out later,
they are more aggravated and agitated, they get into more
fights, and the crime rate goes up. This is an absolutely
known annual trend.From June through July of that summer,
we brought to the area a large number of practicing meditators
and trained quite a few others.When the group reached a
particular size—2,500 (ultimately reaching 4,000)—which
was about halfway through the period, there was a distinct
and highly statistically significant drop in crime compared to
expected rates based on previous data,weather conditions, and a
variety of other factors.”

This scientific evidence, repeated, and validated, shows the power and transformative abilities of human and collective consciouscious, unified field theory, and what can be achieved by focusing on the good in man. December 21st 2012 is a significant date becuase of the possible millions that will be gathering to focus their intentions and meditate on the collective transformation and the healing of the plant, the evolutionary leap, and creative transcendence. I encourage all of you to take part in this possible quantum transformation!
The study is almost 20 years old.
And only measured 3 areas of the most extreme crime. It doesn’t provide trends from previous years within the same areas or time frame. It doesn’t give a reduction in the total crime for that or similar periods.
@dawveed, There are other large scale meditation projects currently underway worldwide: I participated in a large scale experiment here: http://theintentionexperiment.com/ The first target was the Wanni region of Sri Lanka..a month later their 25 year old civil war was over.
These guys are also running mass intention projects all the time!: http://www.thepeacealliance.org/
@dawveed, I have also heard of this study. :)
Regardless of the validity of these ‘facts’, I will take part in meditation on that day. Whether it be true or not it doesn’t hurt to think positively right? That is all we can do; and what a better day than December 21, 2012? :)
I dont know what your stance is on the 2012 thing, but this is an interesting video of a supposed legitimate mayan man explaining what his beliefs are of what will happen. Regardless of whether this is true or false, however, if we all coordinate we can make what he proposes true through our collective intention.
