The New-age Guide to Natural Disasters

Boulder Man Hopes to Stop Gulf Oil Gusher Using Meditation

The basic concept is to try and get as many people to visualize that the valve is actually functioning and is working and closing… I’m very known for fixing things and making things work,” Fuermann said, adding that he believes his meditation helped fix a friend’s Flip video camera. “I visualize things working and hold the belief that they actually work.

  1. “… he believes his meditation helped fix a friend’s Flip video camera.”

    Fuermann visualized the camera working, put in a fresh battery, and ‘Eh, woilà!’ the camera is fixated by a mental case.

  3. Yeah, well, unfortunately these wackos get way more cred than you’d expect and they deserve–just like their christianist cousins. I was horrified a few years back when the article appearing before mine in the Journal of Aging and Health was some nutty shit about Vedic medicine authored by a bunch of TM wackos. They’re also famous for “studies” of the “effect” of chanting and meditation on the resolution of conflict in Occupied Palestine….Great. Thanks “peer” reviewers!
