Mind-Over-Matter Experiments

Melvin Dummar says a grand conspiracy has denied him his portion of billionaire Howard Hughes' vast estate. Many consider Dummar to be a fraud but an in-depth investigation by Gary Magnesen has apparently shown Dummar to be a good samaritan who saved Hughes from certain death. Both joined George Knapp to discuss why Hughes was in the desert, as well as those who schemed to deny Dummar and several institutions of their rightful share of the Hughes estate. In the first hour, veteran music journalist Joel Selvin talked about the notorious Rolling Stones Altamont concert of 1969, considered by many to be rock’s darkest day.

Mind-Over-Matter Experiments

Show Archive
Date: Thursday - February 14, 2008
Host: George Noory
Guests: Lynne McTaggart, John M. Curtis

Researcher Lynne McTaggart returned to report on the on-going results of global mind-over-matter experiments (theintentionexperiment.com) that she has sponsored. Because of the way subatomic structures function, the world is not as fixed or final as it might seem, and living things are subject to influence from the power of thoughts, she explained.

Successful experiments have been conducted both with in-person groups and over the Internet. In one intention experiment, a group of people were asked to send thoughts for a barley seed to grow faster, and the results showed the seed sprouted and grew faster than control seeds. The experiment was repeated in New York with a group of healers and yielded even more dramatic results, she said. This led McTaggart to conclude that experience mattered more than the quantity of participants, with the degree of mental focus being an important factor.

Interestingly, she suggested that negative intention, such as using thought to destroy microorganisms, can work just as powerfully as positive intention. Elite athletes often practice a kind of intention with "mental rehearsals" -- according to research, this may be an effective form of training because the brain doesn't distinguish between action and thought, she detailed. Upcoming experiments (the next one will be on March 29th) are planned to make polluted water cleaner, and to reduce crime in a specific area, she noted.

Curtis Commentary

First hour guest, spin expert John M. Curtis offered commentary on various current events. The recent assassination of a Hizbullah chief may escalate tensions in the Middle East, he said.
