For a spiritual technique, the benefits atributed to meditation are pretty down-to-earth. Ever wondered what the real effects of meditation are? In Chaprter Four of the first part of our Brainwave Coherence Section we tell you. Forty-two years into meditation, we have a lot to say on the subject. Click here to go there.

This site is about consciousness, personal and global evolution, spirituality and the power of collective consciousness to change the world.
If the aim and purpose of this site seem rather unrealistic (and we do sometimes hear the sound of manic laughter floating somewhere on the air when we talk about it) it is only because they are. This site is built around a premise that has no basis in fact, for which there is no conventional scientific or other supporting evidence and which does not even qualify as educated speculation. However, although like most hypotheses this one floats on a cushion of hot air, there is convincing evidence that suggests that the premise upon which the site is based is so resonantly timely that almost everyone who reads what we have to say will appreciate where we are coming from. We believe that the ideas that this site promotes are already in the air and that many people already recognise them, although perhaps only tacitly.

...1. The Problem of Stress
It is, however, a site with more than just ideas to promulgate. It is a site where people can take action to change things. By signing up to become neurons in the global brain, people are acknowledging their role in helping to structure the future. Although, whether we like it or not, we are all part of the existing global brain, acknowledgement of our place in the global neural network has significant effects.
Every self-aware neuron brings increasing coherence and self-identity to the global brain and adds a minute but significant amount of power to the force with which the brain ‘thinks.’ The defining quality of human intelligence is self-awareness. It is this self-awareness that gives us identity and the ability to shape our lives. For the global brain to assume its full power, to become a coherent and directed force within the world some level of self-awareness seems to be a prerequisite.
There is convincing evidence that suggests that the world is a set of self-regulating systems that resembles the human body. The human body is a set of systems that are controlled and regulated by a central co-ordinating organ -- the brain (which is also a system in its own right.) It is clear from simple observation that the world consists of systems within systems within systems, just as does the body. However, one thing is missing from our model of the world as a replica of the human body -- the brain. Clearly all the systems that make up the world as we know it work more or less in synchrony but there does not seem to be any co-ordinative force holding the whole thing together and keeping it going. There must be a 'brain' somewhere within the global system that makes up the world.
So where might the brain that regulates and controls the world be located? Hmmm, difficult question to answer that. There is clearly intelligence at work in the Cosmos. We can see it in the ebb and flow of life, the changing of the seasons, the movement of the stars. Everywhere we look we can see Cosmic intelligence at work. But the brain is about more than maintaining systems. The brain is a living entity that communicates within itself, that creates thoughts apparently out of nowhere, that thinks, reasons, evaluates and motivates. Within the brain neurons are capable of communicating over comparatively vast distances and the brain is constantly alive with such communications.
So if the Cosmos provides us with the autonomic aspects of the brain, where are the neurons? The answer seems to us to be clear, obvious and unequivocal -- we are.
In acknowledging our role as part of the global brain we are responding to one of the most fundamental and powerful laws that shape the Cosmos -- the law of evolution. It is evolution that is the gasoline that drives the entire Cosmos forward. It is evolution -- the act of rising from a lower state to a higher one -- that is at the very heart of the universe. Indeed, there is nothing that the Cosmos wants more than for us to evolve to a higher state. And there is nothing that gives the Cosmos more pleasure. In this time of high speed scientific and technological evolution that empowers and connects us all what could be more natural than a parallel evolution in global human consciousness?
As the world spirals into ever increasing crisis, an evolutionary quantum leap in global human consciousness seems impossible. But is it? There is a precedent for such a quantum leap and, what is more, it is within living memory. In the last years of the 1960s a number of events took place that changed global consciousness big time. For many of us the world changed at that time. Although there were many social changes that are still with us today the biggest change was in how those who had been a part of the silent revolution perceived themselves, the world and their place in it.
The mood of change that started in the late sixties has not gone away nor diminished. Indeed, in some areas it has increased and intensified. There have been some landmark events that have been reflections of the change in global consciousness that started in those far-off days -- desegregation in the USA, acceptance of individual sexuality, Live Aid, the destruction of the Berlin Wall, Perestroika and the end of the Cold War, the release of Nelson Mandela, the election of President Obama and many others. There was also a very significant and pervasive change in attitude that is much harder to define and identify than such events. This can only be described as a growth of interest in broadly-based spirituality, mysticism and individual expansion. Bookshops these days have many shelves of titles devoted to such subjects as yoga, self-help, meditation, personal fitness, mysticism, diet, belief systems, spiritual subjects and more that, prior to the late sixties, were virtually unknown or very much of fringe interest. At the same time the speed of change within the scientific and technological fields has escalated to an almost unimaginable extent.
However, despite these positive beacons the darkness that permeates the world has remained constant. Although on one level the world is a less discriminatory, more open minded, more understanding and more intelligent place, on the level at which we all connect with it nothing has changed. Wars still rage, poverty is still rife, political systems oppress the masses, crime increases, corruption is everywhere. Same old, same old.
We can all see the parlous state of chaos that reigns in the world today. We are all aware of the fact that the world is on the way to a state of destitution in which resources will run out, food production will not keep pace with population growth and economic stability will break down. The world is -- and by association we as citizens of it are -- defined by violence, crime, wars, corruption and the lust for power.
But what can we do about it? The world is structured by political and economic systems that are supposed to represent and serve us. But do they? And what are we but nothing more than insignificant cogs in the gigantic machine that shapes our world.
We, the people of the world, have little ability to change the systems that have been imposed upon us. But it does not have to be so. If we can only activate the global brain we can take charge of our own destinies and shape the world as we would wish.
The main purpose of this site is to activate and empower the global brain. To do that we need to empower the individuals who comprise the neurons within that brain. To be the vibrant, creative, sensitive, aware, calm but dynamic people we all wish to be, it is necessary to develop coherent thinking. As coherent thinking is to the individual, so it is to the world as a whole. Through coherent thinking we come to understand our place in the Cosmic landscape and to appreciate our role in global consciousness. And through the enlightened attitudes that coherent thinking naturally generates, we can make the greatest impact on shaping the world as we would wish it to be.
Brainwave coherence seems to be one of the most important aspects of human life. In defining a set of values that would suggest a higher level of individual functioning, it defines itself as evolution in action.
For the world to evolve, people need to evolve. And understanding brainwave coherence and how to achieve it is, in our belief, crucial to that evolution.
The secondary purpose of this site is, therefore, the evolution of individuals. For that reason the first pages to go up on the site deal with the subjects of brainwave coherence and meditation. Please take a look.
As we are able to add new pages to this site we will be exploring in detail the subjects we cover in outline above. Amongst many other subjects we will be looking at are the myths and facts that define spirituality in this New Age, the nature of the global brain, the nature of the Cosmos and how it works and our role in the Cosmic system, as well as offering a complete rundown of all the evidence that supports the hypothesis upon which this site is based.
