In Beyond Science, Epoch Times explores research and accounts related to phenomena and theories that challenge our current knowledge. We delve into ideas that stimulate the imagination and open up new possibilities. Share your thoughts with us on these sometimes controversial topics in the comments section below.
Dr. William Tiller had a successful and prestigious career in the world of conventional science. He was chair of Stanford’s material science and engineering department in 1996; he published numerous conventional scientific papers in peer-reviewed journals. However, he had a nagging urge to study “crazy-seeming kind of stuff.”
He was intrigued by the experiments on human psychic abilities conducted by Soviet scientists. He knew his colleagues found the topic preposterous, yet he asked himself, “How might the universe be constructed to allow this crazy-seeming kind of stuff to naturally coexist with the orthodox science I am doing at Stanford with my Ph.D. students every day?”
He lightened his workload at Stanford, in order to make time for independent research to answer this important question. His colleagues staged an intervention to try and stop him from doing this.
Dr. Tiller was undeterred. “There are thousands of people over the last 150 years who have done such remarkable things that are put in the category of parapsychology, which orthodox science has wanted to sweep under the rug, because the results are not internally consistent with their results,” he said. “Anything that doesn’t fit their kind of results and the methodology of getting those results, they think is crapola.”
What Tiller discovered, however, and even the way he discovered it, could spur a Copernican-scale paradigm shift.
When Epoch Times learned that Dr. Tiller had developed a machine that could hold and dispense human intention, we eagerly contacted him to see how it works.
He doesn’t know the specific details of how it works!
But he knows it does work. So how does he know it works?
Firstly, his experiments show that human intention can significantly change the pH-levels of water up or down (with no chemical additions) or change the adenosine triphosphate (ATP) production in fruit fly larvae (and thus enable them to mature more quickly). Secondly, he’s shown that test subjects can direct their intention to his Intention Host Device and that device can later emit this intention, having the same effect without the person being present. It holds and dispenses intention. It works!
But if he doesn’t have a serious inkling of how it works, how in the world did he come to use it in the first place? Why did Dr. Tiller use this device and not, say, a toaster or an alarm clock, or any other electronic device to try and capture a specific intention?
He was working on research unrelated to human intention, his conventional studies. This device was being used in those studies for a more mundane purpose. On a whim, Tiller decided to use it for informal intention experiments, just for fun. It worked!
It gets weirder. Unbeknownst to Dr. Tiller, this wasn’t the device he was supposed to be using for his conventional studies. A manufacturer’s error had landed the incorrect device in his lap. When he received the device originally sought, it didn’t work as an Intention Host Device. No other device he’s tried has worked either. Only this particular device that came to him by accident and which he decided, on a whim to test with human intention, works as an Intention Host Device.
“I think of it as a divine mistake,” he said.
After his informal experiments, he began serious research on it. He’s gone well beyond changing the pH-levels of water. He says he has helped enhance the skill sets and integration of 34 autistic children with the good intentions broadcast by the device. He summarized some of the accomplishments of the device in an email to Epoch Times:
1. Relieved depression and anxiety for several hundred people, located about 1500 miles away at p<0.001 over an eight-month broadcast period.
2. Enhanced the skill sets and integration of 34 autistic children located all over the world, and relieved the depression and anxiety of their parents at p<0.001 over a 12-month broadcast period.
3. Started an experiment to wean 74 humans, located in the US, away from self-judgment and to enhance compassion for self and others.
His development of the device was spawned by a fateful coincidence. He has used meditation to make leaps forward in his understanding of the physical existence of human intention and other levels of existence in the universe. His starting points have diverged greatly from the mainstream, but as a bridge between empirical science and crazy stuff, he’s followed up with more traditional scientific investigations.
When he began studying intention, he concentrated on his quest to understand the universe before his daily hour-long meditation. He would emerge with new concepts, then he would consider whether these concepts violated any existing scientific principles or experimental data. He found that they did not.
The Vacuum Space Isn’t Empty
He’s discovered that the vacuum space commonly understood as empty, is actually filled with immensely powerful substances that we can’t physically see. Dr. Tiller has found that human intention affects this unseen substance. An in-between substance made of particles he calls deltrons are thus activated and affect the substances we can see. That’s how he is able to observe and measure the impact of human intention on this otherwise undetected substance.
The power in vacuum space is immense.
Dr. Tiller explained: “In order for quantum mechanics and relativity theory to be internally self-consistent [Seeking consistency between quantum mechanics and relativity theory is the major task theoretical physicists have been grappling with since quantum mechanics emerged], the physical vacuum has to contain 10^94 grams equivalent of energy per cubic centimeter. What that means is, if you take just a single hydrogen atom, which is one proton and one electron and all the rest of the atom is ’empty space,’ if you take just that volume of empty space, … you find that you end up with a trillion times as much vacuum energy as all the electromagnetic energy in all the planets, all the stars, and all the cosmic dust in a sphere of radius 15 billion light-years.”
To summarize, the subtle energy in the vacuum space of a single hydrogen atom is as great as all the electromagnetic energy found in everything within 15 billion light-years of our space-time cosmos. Furthermore, human intention can act on this powerful realm. But conventional science views it as empty space.
He gave an analogy to illustrate what’s possible when groups of people are cohesive, when we broadcast coherent intent: “If you look at a 100-Watt light bulb, it gives a bit of light, but not a lot of light. That’s because the photons coming out of it destructively interfere with each other, and that cuts down the amount of light. But for the same number of photons coming out per unit time, if you could cohere them so that they … are in phase with each other, then the energy density or intensity coming out of the light bulb for the same number of photons per unit time would be greater than the surface of the sun.”
“People have the potential to become coherent, but they just need to develop it,” he said. “The potential is there.”
“That’s where our future is, that explains sort of why I was so maverick-like to give up what seemed like a golden future for myself to do this. This is a better future, as far as I’m concerned, for humanity.”
