Transcending does miracles for creativity
Creativity starts in the brain.
Many famous TM practitioners are successful because they possess enormous creativity. And many gladly report on the effect of TM on their creativity.
Creativity, more than any other aspect of life, depends on the extent to which the brain is able to coherently work as one whole. In scientific circles this is also referred to as “whole brain creativity”. This can be measured through EEG coherence measurements; and transcending, more than any other experience ever researched, increases EEG coherence (see transcending = development of full brain potential).
Many remarkable studies show a strong increase in creativity. The most impressive one thus far is a larger analysis of 3 individual studies carried out in Taiwan.
362 Taiwanese school children were randomly divided into 4 groups: one TM group and 3 control groups. In one group students could take a nap; one group practised contemplation meditation; and in one group students were not given any specific attention. After 6 to 12 months a highly significant improvement was noticed in the TM group, as compared to the 3 control groups in all 5 scales of intellectual capabilities, including a scale for “whole brain creativity”. The difference in growth in the control group was so large and so consistent, that the p-value was 1 in 12,5 billion p=0,0000000008. (what is a p-value?). Scientists are normally impressed with 1 in 20 (p<0,05), and the smaller the p-value, the more impressive the result. The TM students also showed a significant reduction in stress symptoms.
Even more impressive is an experiment in which children practised TM throughout their school careers, as part of their school curriculum. These children have won the world championship in Creative Problem Solving 4 times already, despite the fact that each year over 100,000 of the world’s most creative students participate in this competition. (see TM in education).
