Science behind the Water Intention Experiement – it works!

Posted on December 10, 2007. Filed under: Science, Spirituality |

I am happy to submit for your consideration the results from the Water Intention Experiment I participated in on November 30. I described what the experiment is, and why I wanted to participate here. As a participant, I can report that we were not told the source of the water, or what the location was. I was surprised that the experiment took place in St. Petersburg, Russia. I participated in the United States, and the organizers are in the UK. Obviously, as described below, many more double-blind trials need to take place. I’m excited about the potential of this. More about the Intention Experiments, including pictures of the equipment, graphs, and the results of prior experiments, can be found here.

From Lynne McTaggart: I’ve just heard back from Russian physicist, Dr. Konstantin Korotkov, who ran the experiment. He has produced charts showing a large shift in the water’s light signals after our participants sent love via our Intention Experiment internet site.

This is our most comprehensive global experiment yet. Nearly 3000 people signed up to participate from eighty countries around the globe. Although two-thirds were from the US, Canada, the UK and the Netherlands and other English speaking countries like New Zealand and Australia, we also had a large showing from every country in Europe and then many far flung places: Indonesia, Bangladesh, Uruguay, Zambia and other countries in Africa, Malaysia, Japan, Croatia, Costa Rica and other countries in central America, Columbia, and China. We had representatives from every continent other than Antartica.

Korotkov 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.

In the case of liquids, the GDV machine examines differences in its ‘structure’, in the case of water – the emission activity on the surface of the liquid β€” that is, its ability to retain important information from other molecules.

Korotkov and his team have carried out a great deal of pilot research on a great variety of biological liquids, showing that the GDV equipment is highly sensitive to changes in the chemical and physical contents of liquids β€” subtle changes that don’t show up in ordinary chemical analyses.

On November 30, Dr. Korotkov filled a test tube to the top with distilled water from a pharmacy in St. Petersburg. He then inserted an electrode into the test tube, so that water began to run down its sides, to ensure there was no air in the test tube. The electrode was then secured with tape.

This electrode was then connected to a cylinder and standard GDV equipment.

…To find out the results and preliminary analysis; see photos of the equipment; and graphs of the results; read the full story here. Do you think this has potential?

Well, maybe not quite, exactly. We will have to use some of our senses, such as sight and hearing, and then sort and sift and process what we want to use or believe. I’m excited to share an opportunity to download many, many lectures and seminars by some of the world’s best known teachers for free. There’s bound to be something for everyone.

I am a member of the Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS), founded by astronaut Edgar Mitchell, but I’m not, as yet, a member of their Shift in Action program. I’m sure they are offering this free access to entice us to become members. I don’t mind that–if they succeed with me, it’ll be because there is something of real value there for me. In the meantime, until December 24, we can explore to our hearts content. Below are links to some of the talks and seminars offered, and you can click on the picture for an overview of the program. Hey–shift happens! I like to get Free Shift. πŸ˜‰ Enjoy!

My blog is staring at me again.

Posted on December 4, 2007. Filed under: Musings, Spirituality |

Sometimes that BLOG takes on a life of its own. I’m living my life, minding my own business, when I pass by the computer. It is menacing. It’s watching me. “What do you want?” I say.

Hey, there’s a Blog in here, you know.
I know, I know. I started it after all. I maintain it, I write in it. What’s your point, exactly?

Huh! You haven’t posted for three days! You know what “they” say. If you post less than 3 times a week, you might lose readership!
First of all, who asked YOU to be my conscience? Did you SEE the “Blogging Without Obligation” button I put in your sidebar? And besides, you know I don’t blog for readership, primarily, but to express my thoughts and opinions. I get brain-clog, unless I empty it regularly.

Brain-clog–that’s for sure! Feeling a little clogged right now, by chance?
Leave me alone!

So, you’re telling me you don’t CARE if anyone reads your blog or not?
I’m not saying that! I said I don’t blog PRIMARILY for readers, not that I don’t like them.

Look, human. I know you pretty well by now. I happen to know you just LOVE getting comments and you LOVE commenting almost as much!
Well, yeah. I like to meet people from all over the world, and exchange thoughts and opinions, so what? Who are YOU, anyway? Whoever heard of someone’s blog talking to them? I created you! I made you what you are today!

Oh, don’t get all ‘Pygmalion’ on me. I’ve had to put up with your so-called “belief system” all this time. “Everything is conscious”, you say. “There’s a little of the divine in everyone and everything.” Whether I’m a “one” or a “thing”, that means me, too, bucko.
“Bucko”? I don’t have to take this! All you are, after all, is a receptacle for anything I happen to want to write about. Who, or What do you think you ARE, lecturing me like this?

Well, we went on that way for a while. I finally got the blog to be quiet and stop bugging me. I think it does feel neglected. The past couple of days when I turned on the computer, I just didn’t even want to look at the blog. I’d been around a lot of people and activities, lately, and was surprised to find that I “needed some space” –even from the blog! I like to hibernate a bit, when I’ve been around a lot of manic energy. I thought the blogosphere was an exception to this tendency, though. It doesn’t make noise, unless I click on a video or audio link. It doesn’t demand instant answers. It lets me think things through, while patiently waiting–at least it had done until now! I’ll have to consider a new phase in arranging my life. In the meantime, I’ve sent the blog over to “Cheezburger“. It loves those LOLCats.

7 more things about me.

Posted on December 1, 2007. Filed under: Musings |

I did this meme relatively recently, but it’s come around to Richard, a person I respect. He was kind enough to tag me, so I am happy to play.

Here are the rules:

1) Link to the person that tagged you, and post the rules on your blog. 2) Share 7 facts about yourself. 3) Tag 7 random people at the end of your post, and include links to their blogs. 4) Let each person know that they have been tagged.

7 more things:

1. I’ve lived in two major cities: San Francisco and Honolulu. Don’t live in either one now.

2. I was a juvenile delinquent. I went to the beach, or walked downtown, instead of attending high school; …however:

3. When I did decide to go to college, I loved it, and did very well (honor roll, dean’s list, etc.)

4. I was a budding scientist as a child, a dropout in high school (see above) and a music major in college. Now I combine all these things (particularly the drop-out πŸ™‚ ).

5. When I was a vegetarian, I was a rampant vegetarian. Not only did I not eat meat, I did not consume eggs, dairy, or added oils or fats in my food. And, I thought anyone who didn’t do the same was wrong.

6. Now, I’m a “moderate” vegetarian, adjusting and flowing with life and times. A Buddhist monk I met at a Franciscan retreat center told me something that changed forever the way I look at things. He said he generally was a vegetarian, but when someone was kind enough to offer him food, it was better to be thankful and eat what was offered than to refuse a dish in order to adhere to a self-imposed principal.

7. I now attempt to remain in a state of thankfulness and appreciation, and, at this point, I don’t think anyone is “wrong” or “bad”. For any reason.

I will tag just three people because I tagged some others recently, and don’t want to wear out my welcome. Will they participate? I wait. and wonder. They are: Colourful Vision, duskman, and mrgnome.
