On 2 February 2006 Daily Bruin reported:
A study conducted at the University of California - Los Angeles in 2000 which demonstrated that the practice of the Transcendental Meditation Technique improved cardiovascular health was cited as a legitimate example of empirical experiment. Such investigation shows that subjective consciousness can be correlated to objective measurements, which can be systematically researched and which should not be dismissed as 'subjective pseudoscience'.
It is a joy for Global Good News service to feature this news, which indicates the success of the life-supporting programmes Maharishi has designed to bring
fulfilment to the field of science.
The UCLA study showed that people practising the Transcendental Meditation Programme reduced their 'risk of cardiovascular disease and death by reducing the thickness of artery walls'.
In contrast, the article cited instances of 'pseudoscience' in the study of subjective experience where theories claim to have a scientific basis, but actually have 'no testable hypotheses'.
The article reported that 'Maintaining the distinction between objective science and subjective pseudoscience is a worthy cause to protect the progress of scientific thought. But rejecting all subjective experiences as irrelevant ... may keep us from finding objective answers to the hardest questions of our existence, those still buried deep beneath the subjective consciousness.'
Every day Global Good News documents the rise of a better quality of life dawning in the world and highlights the need for introducing Natural Law based—Total
Knowledge based—programmes to bring the support of Nature to every individual, raise the quality of life of every society, and create a lasting state of world peace.
