Dr Bruce Lester, professor of computer science at Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, Iowa, USA, discusses parallel programming in light of the Unified Field of all the laws of nature. Dr Lester recently received an award for his paper on parallel programming, considered a challenge in the field of computer technology now that computer processors have multiple cores.*

'The power of a particular computer is based to a great extent on the speed of the processor,' Dr Lester explained. 'Speed is measured by how many operations per second the processor can perform. Today's computer processors can perform 1 billion operations per second.

'Even though a processor computes very quickly, the operations are essentially performed sequentially—that is, one at a time. This is sometimes called sequential computing.

'When a processor has multiple cores, each core is like a self-sufficient processor, capable of executing its own sequence of operations in parallel with the other cores. . . .

'Whenever we talk about electronic computer technology at Maharishi University of Management, it's always in the light of the cosmic computing of natural law that takes place within the Unified Field of all the laws of nature,' Dr Lester continued. 'From the level of the Unified Field the activity of the laws of nature is being computed at every point of the universe all at the same time with perfect coordination.

'It is as if the cosmic processor of nature has an unlimited number of cores, with one at each point of the universe computing the laws of nature at that point. This is really the ultimate in parallel computing and represents a goal or model for the future progress of computer technology.

'Fortunately today, it's possible for any individual, through the regular practice of the Transcendental Meditation and Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme, to directly experience and utilize in a practical way the cosmic computing of the Unified Field to compute thoughts and actions in accord with all the laws of nature, and thereby live a life of all success and fulfilment.'

* Dr Lester received the Best Paper Award for the 2011 International Conference of Parallel and Distributed Computing, held in London, UK, July 2011.
