Remembering Ourselves

Isis Osiris

The story of the Egyptian gods Isis and Osiris teaches us how to remember ourselves.  As they ruled the world, Osiris’ jealous cousin Set murdered Osiris and scattered his body part along the Nile so that he could not be embalmed.  Isis, Osiris’ wife, turned herself into a bird and flew over the Nile, retrieving Osiris in pieces until she had all of him.  By putting his “members” (body parts) back to together, she re-membered him.  In this same way, we each put ourselves back together when we “remember” ourselves.

A new experiment will test whether our brains operates outside of the realm of quantum mechanics.

It was the French philosopher and mathematician René Descartes who first suggested that the human mind may operate outside of the physical realm. He called it his mind-matter duality theory. The idea was that the human brain was above the physical world and could use its power to influence it. The “father of modern philosophy,” may have been more prescient than he’d ever realize.

The Meditation Effect is a year-long intention experiment intended to prove that focused intention through meditation and mindfulness can change our country.  The Meditation Effect consists of a series of experiments throughout 2019 which focus meditators on philanthropic outcomes, such as lowering gun violence, bullying, domestic violence and hate crimes.  Each experiment is scientifically controlled, web-based and intended to enlist thousands of volunteers from around the United States.   In the pilot experiment, meditators are being enlisted to direct their positive intentions to 3 US cities:  Austin, Philadelphia and San Francisco.   The meditators are being asked to attempt to lower violence in these cities.  Researchers hope to discover significant changes in the CDC gun violence and FBI violent crime statistics compared to the months when the meditators were not focusing their positive intentions.
