An Experiment with Meditators Shows That Human Mind Can Interfere with Quantum Objects

meditation physical world

A lot of researchers have recently started to conduct a variety of experiments to understand whether or not the human consciousness has any effect on the physical world. A lot of experiments have already drawn conclusive results aiming towards the subtle effect that human mind has on the surrounding material world. One such experiment is the double slit experiment in which meditators and non-meditators were given specific instructions that could alter the predicted results.

The double slit optical system has a certain ratio of interference that is related to its single and double slit spectral power. The hypothesis, keeping in mind previous research in this field, was that if observers directed their attention towards the optical system, there would be a significant decrease in this ratio, and if their attention was away from the system, the results would be similar to the predicted ones.

The experiment was conducted by changing different variables one at a time. For some set of experiments non-meditators were used. In another set of experiments meditators from a temple were used. In one of the sets of experiments, apart from giving instructions to focus towards or away from the optical systems, two different types of music also played in the background. When the participants were asked to focus their attention away from the system, soft continuous tone played in the background. When they were asked to focus their attention towards the optical system, then music with the same pitch as that of the perturbations in the wavefunction played in the background.

The results for each set of experiments were surprising. With meditators focusing their attention towards the optical system, the decrease in the interference ratio was far more significant than the decrease caused by non-meditators; hereby proving that people with a larger capacity to focus caused the greatest changes in the predicted results as compared to those who had lower capacity to focus. The music also interfered with the predicted results in the similar manner: the music of the same pitch as the perturbations of the wavefunction caused a larger decrease in the interference ratio.

With the results of such experiments stacking up, it has now become hard for physicists to actually deny the fact that our consciousness plays a role in shaping the reality around us, however subtle it may be. Using the power of our minds, we can make our surroundings be similar to the state of our consciousness.

    Interesting stuff! This is what our science and the world needs to take on board. The finding is in line with data from our seance meetings … data from Angelic Realms and from planetary beings more enlightened than humans. The fact is that meditation can be practiced and enhanced to become more and more powerful. Mind, if put to good use, is a most powerful tool. It is the fount of our further evolution. Earth’s earliest pyramids were mind-created by visiting ET-beings to provide the energy needed for their well-being and to power their return journey.

    Hey Neeshay I liked this article because it confirms for me whether having raised my consciousness has affected subtle things like the weather at all and also it makes the concept of the superconsciousness feel more concrete to me.. Anyways just letting you know that if you’re not already into Carl Jung’s work I would really recommend him, I really have learned a lot from his material on personality typology and dreams. Letting you know because you’re obviously really smart. Ok take care!

    Where can I find this study? I’d like to read the actual study for myself.

    Could you please provide references to the articles you are refering to?

    Hi Neeshay can you please provide links to the study? Thanks, M

    As amazing as this might be if it were true, I just can not see this as being any way true or scientific. This “article” (and I quote article because this is really more like a blog than anything resembling an article) has no (ZERO) references to any such experiments involved meditators from “a temple”. If you are going to post something as fact, you have to actually have facts. Just the fact that the most scientific part of this blog post was the use of the word “hypothesis” goes to show that this is in fact, not conclusive in the least. Don’t believe things you read just because someone on the internet says something that YOU want to hear to confirm your own wishes and dreams of being able to control “the weather” and your “surroundings”.
    In order for this to be a reality, actual fact, there has to be a referenced study from whatever group of scientists did this (that weren’t of course paid by pharmaceutical, military or government groups). Then once you see a reference in the blog, you click on it and do your own research as to whether the group of scientists, and the involved study, actually exist. Research people, research!

      Well ACTUALLY Antonio, the double slit experiment has been around for quite some time. There are much more complex version out there but I suggest you wrap your head around the most basic version first. It is WITHOUT doubt that the mere act of observation OR the possibility of observation changes the results within the experiments. ALL quantum physicists will learn the double slit experiment very early in their study. Wave function collapse is in fact the under pinning basis for all being. We know from these experiments that everything exists only as waves of possibility until it has a conscious observer, at which point it collapses into actuality. I suggest you educate yourself on WAVE FUNCTION COLLAPSE, THE COPENHAGEN INTERPRETATION and THE DOUBLE SLIT EXPERIMENT.

    my dear friends, i will reply instead of Neeshay, because she no longer writes for Learning Mind. Don’t you see the link in the text of the article?
    For your convenience, I duplicate it here:
    It is an article from a scientific journal “Physics essays”

    Human beings are telepathic. Thoughts are energy, and people who are sensitive to energy can hear/feel them when they are focused on. Schizophrenia is a lie. There are people who like to really mess with peoples minds when they know they can.

    Interested in human interaction ,why people do the things they!
