On person asked ” I’m curiouse to know how you folks ended up with the exact number of 118000 persons needed to meditating at once to make this endevour work?
// Kristofet Lundqvist
The answer:
I could be wrong, but I believe it came from a figure ( Square-root of 1% population ) which was determined to be effective in making a significant change
in a locale when adepts in meditation, such as teacher-level meditators in Transcendental Meditation were all participating in unison.
Such a study found a significant decrease in the violent crime rate in a certain populated area.
