"In our act of participation as an observer in the quantum world, we might be not only creators, but also influencers.7 They began designing and carrying out experiments, testing what they gave the unwieldy label "directed remote mental influence" or "psychokinesis," or, in shorthand, "intention" or even "intentionality." A textbook definition of intention characterizes it as "a purposeful plan to perform an action, which will lead to a desired outcome,"8 unlike a desire, which means simply focusing on an outcome, without a purposeful plan of how to achieve it."

"In the Western world most of us tend to ignore, and even to repress from consciousness, phenomena that do not fit the belief encapsulated in the tenet of classical empiricism, "There is nothing in the mind that was not first in the eye." This is a powerful belief, and it is likely to limit the occurrence of ITC to people who either have a natural disposition to receiving information of nonsensory origin or are able to open their minds sufficiently not to repress the intuitions they may occasionally receive. The myth of sense-reductionist empiricism affects most segments of Western society."

"What Rosenbaum had discovered in his refrigerator might offer some vital clues as to how every object or organism in the physical world, which classical physics depicts as an irreversible fact, a finalized assemblage, changeable only by the brute force of Newtonian physics, could be affected and ultimately altered by the energy of a thought. According to the second law of thermodynamics, all physical processes in the universe can flow only from a state of greater to lesser energy. We throw a stone into a river and the ripple it makes eventually stops."

"The observer effect in quantum experimentation gives rise to another heretical notion: that living consciousness is somehow central to this process of transforming the unconstructed quantum world into something resembling everyday reality. It suggests not only that the observer brings the observed into being, but also that nothing in the universe exists as an actual "thing" independently of our perception of it. It implies that observation—the very involvement of consciousness?gets the Jell-O to set."

"At its infinitesimal level, our world resembled a vast network of quantum information, with all its component parts constantly on the phone. The only thing dissolving this little cloud of probability into something solid and measurable was the involvement of an observer. Once these scientists decided to have a closer look at a subatomic particle by taking a measurement, the subatomic entity that: existed as pure potential would "collapse" into one particular state."

"In our world these embracing connections evolve rapidly, and it is one of the ends of intensive growth to order them, creating coherent structure in place of random proliferation. The second and third ends of intensive growth are directly linked with the first. These ends are to deepen the level of communication and raise the level of consciousness of the communicators. Communication unfolds on multiple levels. First of all, we need to communicate with ourselves, caring for and developing our consciousness and personality."

"Sleep specialist Dr Gillian Nixon of the Australasian Sleep Association directly ascribes many of school children's difficulties in concentrating and problems with behaviour to lack of sleep: 'We're definitely undersleeping as a world population. All of our lives are getting busier, and children aren't sleeping as well as they should.' But as well as putting children into the right frame of mind to learn in the first place, recent research shows that sleep is also essential after the event."

"In the world's most successful countries the gap between the haves and have-nots widens every year. Politicians call it 'social mobility' - the extent to which a nation's citizens are able to move up and out of an impoverished childhood. While some countries, such as Sweden and the Netherlands, have slightly increased social mobility in recent years, in others -notably the USA and UK - the gap grows ever wider. What's more, in most economically successful countries the birth rate among have-nots is soaring, while among educated classes it's falling."

"Sometimes I tell them to imagine that they have special knowledge that the world is coming to an end one week from today. I emphasize that they don't have to actually believe a meteor is going to obliterate the planet, just to act as if it were. Some of them say, "I would just lie in bed waiting for it to happen." But others have said, "I'd telephone a friend I've lost contact with," or "I'd stop worrying about money."

"CHAPTER ONE In the early years of the twenty-first century, the people of the developed world have suddenly noticed we've been poisoning our children. The food we've let them eat over the last decade or so - ever richer in sugar, salt, additives and the wrong sort of fat- now contains very little actual nourishment. Instead of building healthy bodies, it's simply making children fatter and unhealthier by the year. There's been less fuss about the fact that this food has also been damaging children's brains."

"There are as many different cultures growing coffee as there are coffee-growing regions in the world. In some countries, coffee is intricately intertwined within the culture, expressed through ritual and custom in daily life. In Ethiopia, farmers like Tasew Gebru start each day with three small cups of coffee, the beans roasted over a charcoal brazier—a tacit acknowledgment of the centrality of coffee to their way of life. In other countries coffee is just a crop, and a poverty crop at that. For instance, it's hard to find a decent cup of coffee in much of Central America."

"The unhappiness taboo has dominated the United States since it became a nation primarily of consumers rather than citizens, a gradual process that accelerated with the ascent of advertising in the beginning of the 1900s, and which dramatically spiked with the consumer boom following world War II. The belief that people should be either happy or trying to be happier is a fundamental principle of modern consumerism—the never-ending search for products and services to bring happiness and prevent unhappiness."

"Not surprisingly, history is a well-defined concept in the macroscopic world of human experience. A coarse-grained history proceeds in finite time steps, and a history of any finite duration must consist of a finite number of moments. At each moment, the system can only be in a finite number of states, and it follows that the number of distinct histories of the system must also be finite. Jaume and I did a quick, back-of-the-envelope estimate of the number of possible histories that can occur in an O-region from the big bang till the present."

"His paper on inflation was not yet written at that time, and for a very simple reason: Alan Guth is the biggest procrastinator in the world. (I learned this firsthand after working with him on a number of research projects.) Of course, Guth was disappointed to find a serious flaw in his theory. But still he felt the idea was too good to be wrong. When he finally got around to writing the paper in August of 1980, he concluded it with these words: "I am publishing this paper in the hope that it will. . ."

"When children are about six years old, countries across the developed world require them to sign up for formal education. For too many children nowadays, Wordsworth's unenthusiastic description: Shades of the prison-house begin to dose Upon theflTounna boy sums up what learning feels like when it ceases to be voluntary and is instead determined by the demands of the curriculum. What's more, in large classes - typically thirty or more in state primary schools - a single teacher isn't usually in a position to take the developmental level of individual children into account."

"After a year of struggle, he decided that the equations of general relativity had to be modified to allow for the existence of a static world. Einstein realized that it was possible to add an extra term to his equations without violating the physical principles of the theory. The effect of the new term was to endow empty space, or vacuum, with nonzero energy and tension. Each cubic centimeter of empty space has a fixed amount of energy (and therefore mass)."

"The rubber trees were being tapped to make the condoms of the world, as that impervious substance had made a comeback in the face of the relentless HIV/AIDS crisis. Each small town seemed to have the same pattern of development. A mosque, a few cafes and restaurants, and an agricultural supply store. Outside of one of the general stores stood a pallet stacked with paper sacks emblazoned with the large block letters SEMEN. Tomas noticed my slight smile and whispered, "Don't go there, Dean. It means 'cement' in Indonesian." We spent the night at a palatial resort on the shore of Lake Tawar."

"A survey carried out in late 2005 by the Italian branch of the Club of Budapest found that about 35 percent of Italians live and act as cultural creatives. Similar figures are coming to light in surveys in other countries of Europe, as well as in Japan, Australia, and Brazil. In an article in the May/June 2005 issue of the British journal Resurgence, William Bloom, head of the UK-based Holistic Network, noted, "The holistic approach is rapidly becoming a major cultural force."

"FOUR A Better Way to Grow Our societies and our economic and financial systems have become unsustainable themselves, and the way they function creates unsus-tainability in the global ecology. In the course of the past decades, we have been growing the wrong way. There is a better way to grow. In itself growth is not necessarily bad or even limited: its desirability and future depend on the kind of growth we embark upon."

"Yet in the next house, farmers may be wearing T-shirts with Nike or Boston Red Sox logos that seem absurdly out of place until you realize that much of the clothing we wear is produced in sweatshops in the world's coffeelands. In the mountain villages of the Eastern Highlands of Papua New Guinea, farmers may be naked or wear nothing more than a penis gourd carved from a water buffalo horn and decorated with beads or strips of old blue jeans. Indigenous growers in Peru wear a bark-dyed shroud and face paint, while their neighbors dress like small-town Iowans."

"Cotton is second only to soybean as a source of edible seed oil. Cotton oil is a modern innovation (a by-product of the cotton industry). Parts used Seed oil. Cultivation & harvesting Modern cultivars of all four species are grown from seed as annuals, but Upland cotton has become predominant. The industry is highly mechanised but in some regions, harvesting and processing are still done by hand. Oil is obtained by solvent extraction after removal of the seed hairs by a process known as ginning."

"Aleurites moluccana candlenut tree Candlenut tree Candlenut fruits and seeds Description The candlenut tree has a rounded crown and grows to a height of about 12 to 15 m. The large leaves are simple or three-lobed, dark green above and silvery below, with two small glands at the point where the stalk is attached. Small white flowers are borne on sparse, much-branched flowering stalks that are characteristically covered in short, rusty brown hairs."

"Fraiberg writes in her preface: But the magic world is an unstable world, at times a spooky world, and as the child gropes his way toward reason and an objective world he must wrestle with the dangerous creatures of his imagination and the real and imagined dangers of the world, and periodically we are confronted with his inexplicable fears or baffling behaviors." While this imaginative, empathic view of the young child's mind offers some wonderful insights, the conclusions to which it led Fraiberg are questionable today."

"An advantage is that the tree flowers sporadically for a large part of the year, thus providing a supply of fruits over a long period. Under carefully controlled conditions, lemons can be successfully stored for several months. Uses & properties Lemons are amongst the most useful and versatile of all fruits. The juice is used as an antioxidant to prevent browning of fresh fruit and vegetables. Lemon is used in salad dressings, vegetables, meat dishes, marinades, sauces, mayonnaise, and especially in fish and other seafood dishes."

"Patients come to see me from all over the world because it's not always easy to find a physician who has experience diagnosing hormone imbalances and BHRT as the preferred treatment. BHRT is not yet taught in medical schools, and most physicians remain uneducated about it. However, since the world Health Institute has begun detailing the significant health risks of synthetic hormone replacement, this trend is shifting. In the last several years, hundreds of doctors have attended national continuing medical education forums on the subject of BHRT."

"Fromm's penetrating social criticism of an alienating society resulting in increased depression was, during his lifetime, widely respected by many mental health professionals. Today, however, the mental health profession has come to be dominated by biopsychia-trists: those who see depression as a matter mainly of brain chemistry. Fromm, if alive today, may well have labeled this as "microscopic self-absorption." And he most certainly would be sad that mental health treatment has increasingly become a component rather than a confrontation of modern consumerism."

"Universal Guiding Principle 13: The Balance of Masculine and Feminine Each of us has within a combination of "masculine and feminine" energies. In a sense, we humans are androgynous creatures, but most of us tilt more strongly toward one direction or another. That may be as a result of association with our sex, but not always. Many homosexual or transgender people have strong energies more closely associated with the opposite sex. In another example of embracing the opposite energy, "tomboy" girls show the influence of masculine energy surfacing at an early age."

"It is time we cleanse ourselves of fear and take back the power. We are the ultimate creators. It is time we remember who we are and why we are here. Try manifesting in your own life first, using the techniques we suggest in this book. Then step back. Don't be surprised when your desire arrives in some form or another. Think about how many times before you've wished for something that came to pass. Your desires, your emotions and the positive energies you emitted manifest your wish. (You manifested it because, on some level, you believed you could."

"It began during world War I, when chemicals were created to damage the brains and bodies of the enemy. These same chemicals, that have proven adverse effects on plants, birds, fish, waterfowl, whales, animals and humans, are now used in pesticides. Different groups of scientists predict about a quarter of the species of plants and wildlife will be extinct in about 25 to 50 years.24'38 There really is much more than suggestive evidence that this is happening. Chemicals appear to be hurting more than mankind."
