Consciousness is an energized field of information with powers to do everything in the universe. Collective consciousness is the internet of the collective souls of many people in a group.
Collective consciousness is the strongest super power ever available in the universe. As per the Vedic texts whatever is the intent of collective consciousness will become a reality. Scientifically collective consciousness is based on the principle of critical mass. The Vedic literature has shown it to be the 1% of the defined population under study.
The origin of the critical mass comes from 100th monkey phenomenon. The story goes as under: long ago in Japan a monkey called Emo used to eat dirty apples everyday picked up from the ground. One day by accident the apple fell down in a river, the dirt got washed off and he ate the washed apple. Obviously it tasted delicious. The monkey started washing the apple thereafter everyday before eating. His fellow monkey started following the same. The process of following went on. A time came when the 100th monkey washed the apple and ate. A strange phenomenon was noticed. All monkeys in and around that state started washing the apple before eating. The no. 100th was the critical mass.
Thus principle of critical mass is often used in designing and organizing an event. In a movie hall of 1000 people if 10 people clap sitting in different areas everybody will clap. The same is true for the hooting of a particular scene. Most politicians use this principle when they organize election rallies. For a gathering of 10000 they need 100 and for a gathering of 1000 people they only need 10 supporters who are suppose to sit in different areas and shout or clap on given directions. Mexican way of hooting or clapping in cricket grounds also follow the same principle. For a ground likeEdenGardenswith a capacity of 75,000 people you only require 750 people to control the mood of the people. This is what happens in the recent incidence when the Indian team was hooted out by the sentence “No Ganguli no play, No Dada no play”. If Greg Chappel or Jagmohan Dalmiya had anticipated they would have used the same strategy to produce opposite result. They could have posted 1500 people (2% of the population) in the stadium shouting pro-Dravid slogans and the end result of the match could have been different.
Most successful leaders used this technology to lead. Extremist organizations also follow the same principle. The classical examples are the public ofKashmirandPunjab. For an extremist organization the only thing required is to sensitize 1% of the population to believe that Khalistan orKashmirliberty is the need of the day. The same will be true to counter it.
