GREETINGS EARTHLINGS!
It's an exciting time - the warm weather is coming, things are growing. In this issue I'll tell you about my upcoming Western Tour and the workshops I'm offering out there. There's also an article about an interesting testament to the power of consciousness, a scientific experiment out of  Princeton University called the Global Consciousness Project.

In upcoming newsletters I'll be telling you about this year's convention of the Canadain Society of Dowsers, at Humber College in Toronto from June 21 through 26. I'll be a speaker at this event.

Looking forward to seeing you soon.
Peace and love, Dennis.

THE GLOBAL CONSCIOUSNESS PROJECT

In my newsletters so far, many of the articles have been dealing with, in one way or another, the idea that our consciousness is a powerful force. Whether we're discussing mantra, prayer, 'magic', karma or the Law of Attraction, we are referring to the capacity of our thoughts and feelings to affect change in the physical, material world. Is there scientific evidence to back up this claim? Yes there is.

There are a variety of different projects that are addressing this idea. One of the most compelling is something called the Global Consciousness Project. The project grew out of the work of Professor Robert Jahn out of Princeton University in the seventies. Now it is being spearheaded by a highly respected researcher, Dr. Roger Nelson, who has been conducting research in this area for three decades. He is heading up a team of 75 respected scientists from 41 different countries. That in itself is a remarkable achievement.

This ongoing experiment uses insignificant looking black boxes called Random Events Generators (REGs) - computers that are the equivalent of automatic coin flippers. According to the laws of chance, millions of coin flips should produce equal numbers of 'heads' and 'tails'. Under normal circumstances, that is in fact what happens. When this is rendered into a graph, we get a flat line. But experiments have shown that a large number of people can 'will' the generators to produce a larger number of 'heads', with a corresponding 'blip' on the graph. This was repeated many times with the same results. REGs were taken in to measure groups of people meditating, with similar dramatic findings.

The project has been gathering data from a global network of these machines at 65 sites around the world. Enormous amounts of data have been carefully gathered and analyzed, yielding remarkable results that have raised eyebrows in the scientific community. Global events, such as the death of Princess Diana, the bombing of Yugoslavia, the September 11 incident and the giant tsunami have caused unusual data 'blips' that happened hours before the events. These things were measured in ways that eliminated the possibility that other more explainable factors were causing these blips. These findings are astounding scientists. Although the project is very careful not to make hasty, definitive claims, these results imply that consciousness is a causal force and that there is a collective consciousness that can actually sense the future.

To read more about this phenomenal experiment, please visit their official website - GLOBAL CONSCIOUSNESS PROJECT
Also, a 'google search' will reveal many well written articles that can go into more detail than I have room for here.

 

In future newsletters we'll look at other bodies of scientific evidence that seem to back up the following quote from the Buddhist Dharmapada:  "We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts we make the world".
