SCI, the Science of the Absolute !

Dr Byron Ribgy of Maharshi International University opined that the Science of Creative Intelligence is the basic Science, the fundamental Science, the Master Science !

Since all sciences deals with the Relative and are all relative, they all depend on their Source, which is Absolute. In this sense, SCI becomes the source of all sciences and become the Science of all sciences !

Its practical aspect, the TM technique, can trigger the Relaxation Response in man and take him to Enlightenment. Enlightenment, said Dr Robert Keith Wallace, depends on the full development of Consciousness, and depends on the harmonious function of every part of the body.

Meditate Your Way to a Healthy Heart

TM twice a day improves cardio-vascular health
By Sara Altshul , Former Prevention alternative medicine editor Sara Altshul is now a freelance writer based in Rome, Italy.

It's true--according to a recent study, murmuring your mantra regularly might cut your risk of heart attack and stroke. In fact, study participants who practiced a special form of meditation improved cardiovascular health.

Researchers from the University of California, Los Angeles department of psychology, Charles R. Drew University of Medicine and Science in Los Angeles, and the Maharishi University of Management College of Maharishi Vedic Medicine in Fairfield, IA, randomly split 60 African-American people with high blood pressure into two groups. One learned transcendental meditation (TM) and practiced it for 20 minutes, twice a day. The other received standard heart disease prevention education.

Seven months later, researchers used ultrasound to measure fatty deposits and the thickness of the participants' artery walls. The TM group had a decrease in artery wall thickness, which could reduce heart attack risk by up to 11 percent and stroke risk by up to 15 percent. Artery wall thickness increased in the education group (Stroke, 2000).
There's "very strong evidence from this and other studies that meditation has health-promoting effects," says Prevention advisor John Astin, PhD, assistant professor at the University of Maryland School of Medicine in Baltimore. And benefits could extend to all ethnic groups.

World Government for the Age of Enlightenment

Mahesh Yogi founded the World Government for the Age of Enlightenment in Seelisberg, Switzwerland in 1975.

"In response to the call of time, a non-political, non-religious World Government has been established, which has the knowledge and expertise to create an ideal society".

TM practitioners are found to be generating more friendliness and compassion and are contributors to World Peace. An ideal society can be created, if more persons establish themselves in the Unified Field of Consciousness.

Transcendental Consciousness proved

In his PhD Thesis, Dr Robert Keith Wallace proposed a Fourth Major State of Consciousnes, the Transcedental Consciousness. " The physiological effects of TM, a proposed Fourth Major State of Consciousness.

In his " Neurophyisology of Enlightenment ", he says " What the ancients meant by supreme knowledge Jnana, was that state of perfect order, zero entropy". The State of Least Excitation of Consciouness or rather the Quantum Ground State of Consciousness is the basis of all.

Oxygen consumption, heart rate, skin resistance, and electroenceph-alograph measurements were recorded before, during, and after subjects practiced a technique called transcendental meditation. There were significant changes between the control period and the meditation period in all measurements. During meditation, oxygen consumption and heart rate decreased, skin resistance increased, and the electroencephalogram showed specific changes in certain frequencies. These results seem to distinguish the state produced by transcendental meditation from commonly encountered states of consciousness and suggest that it may have practical applications

A write up about TM

Transcendental Meditation

Twelve healthy long-term meditators who had been practicing Transcendental Meditation for 30 years showed a 40-50% lower brain response to pain compared to 12 healthy controls, reported by a latest NeuroReport journal article, published by Lippincott Williams & Wilkins (Vol.17 No.12; 21 August 2006:1359-1363). Further, when the 12 controls then learned and practiced Transcendental Meditation for 5 months, their brain responses to pain also decreased by a comparable 40-50%. Current issue (Aug 9)

Transcendental Meditation could reduce the brain's response to pain because neuroimaging and autonomic studies indicate that it produces a physiological state capable of modifying various kinds of pain. In time it reduces trait anxiety, improves stress reactivity and decreases distress from acute pain.

According to Orme-Johnson, lead author of this research, "Prior research indicates that Transcendental Meditation creates a more balanced outlook on life and greater equanimity in reacting to stress. This study suggests that this is not just an attitudinal change, but a fundamental change in how the brain functions".

Pain is part of everyone's experience and 50 million people worldwide suffer from chronic pain. Transcendental Meditation would have a long term effect in reducing responses in the affective component of the pain matrix. Future research could focus on other areas of the pain matrix and the possible effects of other meditation techniques to relieve pain.

According to the American Academy of Pain Medicine, chronic pain afflicts 50 million people worldwide, and acute pain is the most common reason people seek medical attention. Stress responses to untreated pain adversely impact virtually all systems of the body, especially the cardiovascular, endocrine, respiratory, and immune systems. The cost of treating pain is estimated at $100 billion each year in the U.S. alone.

Transcendental Meditation, derived from the ancient Vedic tradition in India, is taught through a standard protocol involving lectures, personal instruction and group meetings, according to background information in the article
