All thanks to practicing Transcendental Meditation

This study found that during the Transcendental Meditation program some of the early sensory components of the brain's response to somatosensory stimulation (0100 msec) are more widely distributed across the cortex. This study, by Dr. Nicolai Nicolaevich Lyubimov, Director of the Moscow Brain Research Institute's Laboratory of Neurocybernetics, indicates that during the Transcendental Meditation program there is an increase in the areas of the cortex taking part in perception of specific information and an increase in the functional relationship between the two hemispheres.

Students at Maharishi International University in Fairfield, Iowa, who regularly practiced Transcendental Meditation, increased significantly in intelligence over a 2-year period, compared to control subjects from another Iowa university. This finding corroborates the results of two other studies showing increased IQ in Maharishi International University students.

Reference I: Transcendental Meditation and improved performance on intelligence-related measures: A longitudinal study, Personality and Individual Differences 12: 1105-1116, 1991.

Reference II: Longitudinal effects of the Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhi program on cognitive ability and cognitive style, Perceptual and Motor Skills 62: 731738, 1986.

After one year of practice of the Transcendental Meditation program, elementary school students showed significant gains on the lowa Tests of Basic Skills, a nationally standardized test (ref. 1). A second study showed significant gains in high school students (grades 912) on the lowa Tests of Educational Development (ref. 2). A third study (ref. 3) found that the length of time students had been practicing the Transcendental Meditation program was significantly correlated with academic achievement, independent of student IQ scores.

Dr. David Griscom (PhD, Physics, Brown University)
Principal Investigator Naval Research Laboratory, NASA
Winner of the March 15, 2014 debate, Hirsch Index =52
has graciously agreed to debate again on behalf of 9/11 Truth.

The winner will received .911 Bitcoin (about US$600) honorarium

Sponsored by ANETA
To respond:
March 15, 2016 Physicist will be Dr. Crockett Grabbe

ANETA is still looking for any PhD in Physics with a Hirsch Index >= 40
This requirement has been reduced from H >=50 to make it easier to find a challenger)

It takes qualified physicists to properly evaluate a debate on physics, so
the winner will be voted by physicists from 30 top universities, and 2 physics societies

The debate will be broadcast on Dr. Kevin Barrett's show.

Enemies and terror only seem to exist on the surface level of life.
The war profiteers benefit when the population is afraid of enemies,
so they can be the suppliers of military solutions after events like 9/11.
In reality we are all One, in absolute friendship, at the deepest level of life.
