With the regular experience of Transcendental Meditation, the awareness becomes more and more infused with the holistic, fully wakeful, all-knowing quality of consciousness, until it is a permanent feature of one's awareness. Then one is able to spontaneously use one's total Creative Intelligence to know anything, do anything, and achieve any great goal.
Increased field independence through Transcendental Meditation: Individuals randomly assigned to learn the Transcendental Meditation Programme displayed a significant increase after three months, in comparison to controls, on measures of field independence, indicating broader comprehension with increasing ability to focus.

Holistic improvement in intellectual performance through Transcendental Meditation: Three randomized controlled studies among students found that, in contrast to controls, those who learnt the Transcendental Meditation Programme showed significant improvement in five measures of intellectual functioning; they also showed decreased anxiety.

'The prerequisite for gaining complete education, complete knowledge—the prerequisite for knowing everything, experiencing everything, and doing everything—is to bring the awareness to the level of pure intelligence, pure knowledge, self-referral intelligence, self-referral consciousness, Transcendental Consciousness. Therefore the full development of consciousness, self-referral consciousness, should be understood to be complete education.
'Development of consciousness, or gaining supreme level of consciousness, is complete education, which is the state of all-knowingness, the ability to spontaneously know anything, do anything right, and achieve anything at will. This ability to achieve anything at will in the state of self-referral consciousness, singularity, is the ability to spontaneously engage infinite Creative Intelligence, Cosmic Creative Intelligence, to bring fulfilment to all desires.' —Maharishi
