Scientific Study Shows Meditators Collapsing Quantum Systems At A Distance
scientists over many years have studied the role of consciousness and
how it can directly influence our physical material world. Large
amounts of research have been published which clearly demonstrate that
yes, consciousness and what we perceive to be our physical material
world are directly intertwined. I will provide more examples of this
towards the end of the article, but for now we are going to take a look
written about it numerous times, it’s called the quantum double slit
experiment, and it’s a great example of how consciousness can affect
our physical material world. A paper published in the peer-reviewed
journal Physics Essays explains
how this experiment has been used multiple times to explore the role of
consciousness in shaping the nature of physical reality.(1)
this experiment, a double-slit optical system was used to test the
possible role of consciousness in the collapse of the quantum
wave-function. The ratio of the interference pattern’s double slit
spectral power to its single slit spectral power was predicted to
decrease when attention was focused toward the double slit as compared
to away from it. The study found that factors associated with
consciousness significantlycorrelated in predicted ways with perturbations in the double slit interference pattern.
not only disturbs what has to be measured, they produce it. We compel
the electron to assume a definite position. We ourselves produce the
results of the measurement.” (1)
number of experiments were conducted to measure perturbations in the
wavefuntion. In the first experiment, participants were instructed to
direct their attention toward the double-slit apparatus or to withdraw
their attention-toward a task. At certain times, a computerized voice
instructed them saying: “Please influence the beam now,” and for
attention away it said “You may now relax.” This first experiment
was modestly in accordance with the consciousness collapse hypothesis
(perturbations in the double slit interference pattern).
second experiment was conducted at a Zen Buddhist temple, which was a
great place to recruit meditators for the experiment. This time:
audio feedback, during attention-away periods the computer played a
soft, continuous drone tone, and during attention-toward periods it
played a musical note that changed in pitch to reflect the real-time
value of R (perturbations in wave function).
Participants were instructed to direct their attention toward the
double-slit device as in the initial experiment. If they were
successful, then the double slit spectral power was predicted to
decline, and in turn the pitch of the musical note would also decline.”
test finished after 19 participants participated in 31 sessions. At the
Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS) laboratory, three meditators
contributed 11 sessions and four non-meditators contributed 7 sessions.
At the Zen Buddhist temple, 12 meditators contributed 13 sessions. The
tests were supervised, and a double-slit apparatus was presented.
experiment provided more evidence, and in the IONS laboratory the
meditators showed “superior performance” as compared to the
third experiment was then conducted, using 33 sessions where six
meditators contributed to 22 sessions and seven non-meditators
contributed to 11 sessions. The 22 meditator sessions resulted in “a
significant decline” in the ration of the interference pattern. The
meditators here had “an especially strong statistical effect.” This
experiment clearly supported the hypothesis.
the fourth experiment, thirty one people contributed 51 sessions, and
the experimental effect size observed in this study was 3 times greater
than that observed in the first four experiments.
study goes on, and consistently outlines a number of factors associated
with consciousness (I focused on the ones using meditation, but there
are more in the study) to collapse the quantum wave function, or
interfere with its pattern.
“The study found that factors associated with consciousness significantly correlated in predicted ways with perturbations in the double slit interference pattern.”
Below is a visual demonstration of the quantum double slit experiment.
experiment is one out of many that prove consciousness and our physical
material world are intertwined. We recently published a study titled “10 Scientific Studies That Prove Consciousness Can Alter Our Physical Material World.” You can read that HERE
fundamental conclusion of new physics also acknowledges that the
observer creates the reality. As observers, we are personally involved
with the creation of our own reality. Physicists are being forced to
admit that the universe is a “mental” construction. Pioneering
physicist Sir James Jeans wrote: “The stream of knowledge is heading
toward a non-mechanical reality; the universe begins to look more like
a great thought than like a great machine. Mind no longer appears to be
an accidental intruder into the realm of matter, we ought rather hail
it as the creator and governor of the realm of matter. Get over it, and
accept the inarguable conclusion. The universe is immaterial-mental and
spiritual.” (R.C. Henry, “The Mental Universe” ; Nature 436:29,2005) (source)
is quickly catching up to ancient wisdom. Changing our world requires
action, yes, but that action must come from a place of peace, love ,
cooperation and understanding. Who is to say that meditation, and
directing intention towards what we would like to change is not the
base of action? If you change within, manifestation without will begin
to unfold, and that’s exactly what’s happening on our planet right now.
If our hearts are in the right place, and our intentions are pure, we
will be provided with the necessary opportunities using action to
implement change. This is why the role of consciousness, and
recognizing the role of consciousness is so important. It plays a large
factor in creating global change on a mass scale.
