Dr John Hagelin describes the Transcendental Meditation technique in scientific terms.
Hello, I'm John Hagelin, quantum physicist and teach of the Transcendental Meditation program. Welcome to this introductory lecture on Transcendental Meditation.
What is Transcendental Meditation? Is it a way to relax? Is it a technique to promote health, vitality, and longevity? Is it a means to develop creativity, IQ, and peak mental performance? Or is it a past to inner peace? Enlightenment? As we will see it is all these things and more.
To understand Transcendental Meditation and consciousness we need to understand a little bit about the physical universe. Modern science, over the past 50 years, has probed deeper levels of physical reality. Modern science has explored more fundamental levels of natures functioning. From the superficial level of macroscopic physics, the sensory objects around us, to the world of the molecule, atom, nucleus and sub-nuclear levels of natures functioning as shown in this chart.
This chart reveals the hierarchical structure of the laws of nature. From superficial diversity to fundamental unity shown at the foundation of this chart. As modern physics probes deeper levels of natures functioning it is revealed that more fundamental levels of nature are progressively more unified. the 4 forces of nature deep within the atomic nucleus become 3, and 2, and ultimately 1 unified field of all the laws of nature.
