EEG coherence was measured between pairs of three different subjects during a one-hour period practice of the Transcendental Meditation (TM) program. Coherence between subjects was evaluated for two sequential fifteen minute periods. On six experimental days, these periods preceded and then coincided with a fifteen minute period during which 2500 students(More)
This investigation focused on the relationship between percentage of the population in a city practicing the Transcendental Meditation technique in a given year and change in crime rate in the year following. Results indicate that a sudden downward shift in the trend of increasing crime rate occurred when about one percent of a city population had begun the(More)
Causal analysis using cross-lagged panel correlation was performed to assess whether the relationship between Transcendental Meditation (TM) program participation and decreased crime rate in urban areas is causal. One study involved a random sample of 160 U.S. cities measured from 1964 to 1978; the second study used a random sample of 80 metropolitan areas.(More)
This study tested the prediction that increased coherence of collective consciousness would be found in cities upon reaching the threshold level of one percent participation in the Transcendental Meditation (TM) program, and that this increased coherence would be reflected in decreased rates of suicides and auto accidents. The sample consisted of an(More)
