Snippets from the video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p8SYlV3ihl4 at https://www.unify.org/

The concept of morphic resonance was widely promoted by banning the TEDx talk by Rupert Sheldrake: https://blog.ted.com/the-debate-about-rupert-sheldrakes-talk/

Just wondering where to find more information about the group meditation in Delhi and the world peace?

enter image description here


Between 1988 - 1990, a group of 8,000 meditators in Delhi focused on World Peace

enter image description here


During this time, nearly every major conflict in the world peacefully resolved

  • Is it true that meditators gathered in Delhi during that period ?

  • Did most on-going world conflicts resolved between 1988 and 1990 ?

  • If both previous answers are 'yes', can any relation be established between both events ?

    Hello, and congrats on your first question here! Skeptics is for challenging notable claims, not for asking where you can find information on a subject. If your reword your question to ask whether the claims in the linked image are true and prove that a large number of people believe the claims, then it would be an on-topic question here. Otherwise, your question may be closed as off-topic. – Giter Aug 23 '18 at 18:45

    Additionally, a note: Rupert Sheldrake's talk was at a TEDx conference, not a TED conference. – duskwuff -inactive- Aug 23 '18 at 21:36

    Michael, You've asked a few questions that haven't been well received. Please read the welcome page to understand who we are better. There are several extraordinary claims in this video - if you wanted to quote one of them, we could address whether it is true. – Oddthinking Aug 24 '18 at 5:56

    I tried to edit the question to make it more factual. Anyway, is wonder how this video address the major wars that started in 1989-90, like the Gulf war or the civil wars in Rwanda, Mali or the Philippines... – Evargalo Aug 24 '18 at 12:35

    If this video/claim was made after 1990, it smells like the Texas shapshooter fallacy: set the goals after the facts. It can still be investigated of course, but why not e.g. 1988-1992? – user22865 Aug 24 '18 at 14:19
