More than 1,200 people packed the Bovard Auditorium at the University of Southern California to hear film director David Lynch, Dr. John Hagelin, director of the Institute of Science, Technology, and Public Policy, and Dr. Fred Travis, Maharishi University of Management brain researcher, speak on the benefits of the Transcendental Meditation Program (TM) in a presentation called 'Consciousness, Creativity, and the Brain.'

The USC presentation was the kick-off point for Lynch's West Coast college campus tour, and was hugely successful, punctuated by many enthusiastic standing ovations from the crowd. Although Lynch opened the talk by offering to answer questions about his films and filmmaking, every question from the audience focused on consciousness, enlightenment, the TM program, and the brain, marking a remarkable new level of receptivity and responsiveness from the public. Even the seasoned media reporters attending the talk were impressed by the presentation's depth of knowledge and research and by the eloquence of all the speakers.

The next stop on the tour will be the University of California-San Diego for another overflow presentation.
