Professor Emeritus William A. Tiller, of Stanford University's Dept. of Materials Science, discussed his experiments in 'psychoenergetics,' a field that probes the power of the mind. Numerous scientific tests he conducted showed that consciousness can affect outcomes, he said.
Specifically, he detailed experiments in which human intention (as exemplified by four experienced meditators) was able to affect physical properties such as the pH balance of water and the development process of fruit fly larvae.
From his studies, he was able to conclude that conventional science has yet to understand and acknowledge these processes. There is evidence, he said, for an "information channel" in the universe (as tapped into by the meditators), yet we don't completely comprehend how it works. He suggested that the communication of intentionality, while shown to be quantifiable in the experiments, doesn't occur molecularly, but rather resides in the vacuum level of reality.
