On 30 September 2005 Hartford Courant reported:
World-renowned filmmaker David Lynch will speak at Yale University about how the Transcendental Meditation Programme can bring about world peace. Lynch said that filmmaking and meditation have been intertwined throughout his whole career, and that he is currently touring universities to spread his enthusiasm.
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 world peace.
Lynch recently founded the David Lynch Foundation for Consciousness-Based Education and World Peace with the goal of raising $7 billion.
Lynch told reporter William Weir that one goal of the foundation involves making meditation available to all students. 'Stress is hitting kids at a younger and younger age,' he said.
A second goal in his efforts is to bring together 8,000 people skilled in the Transcendental Meditation Technique to bring about world peace.
Lynch explained that 8,000 is the square root of 1 per cent of the world's population. The formula is supported by John Hagelin, professor of physics at Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, Iowa, who is speaking with Lynch on his tour.
To show how the brain changes during meditation, the talk will also feature a demonstration of a student meditating while hooked up to an EEG machine.
Weir asked Lynch if the experience of meditation was in any way connected with the somewhat eerie images often seen in his films?
'Artists mainly reflect the world they live in,' he was quoted as saying. 'I like a story with conflict, and I like to go to another world. You don't become a goody-goody two shoes; you become more you—and a stronger and clearer you.'
'Transcendental meditation doesn't mean taking things away,' he went on to say. 'You just add it to your life. Things get better.'
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.
