On 8 October 2005 The Providence Phoenix reported:
Days before David Lynch spoke to a packed Brown University audience last week on the power of the Transcendental Meditation Programme (TM), the world famous director spoke with The Providence Phoenix by phone. Reporter Ian Donnis shared his conversation with Lynch regarding his films, creativity, and most of all, his enthusiasm for meditation.
It is a joy for Global Good News service to feature this news, which indicates the success of the life-supporting programmes Maharishi has designed to bring
fulfilment to the field of world peace.
The following is an excerpt from Donnis' article:
'How did you become interested in TM?
'I started meditating in 1973 . . . True happiness lies within, and that makes me think we're all kind of like detectives. We all kind of look at the world and feel there's something more going on than meets the eye, and this thing within, I wondered where the within was, and if there was a within, how would you get there? And then it stuck me that meditation was the place to go within.
'How has TM influenced your interest in the subconscious?
'When you experience the intellectual knowledge of this, it's not the same. It's the experience of this deepest level—there are all kinds of things between the surface and that level, but that's the level you want to experience and unfold. That's the level of bliss, creativity, intelligence, pure consciousness, universal love—it's the home of total knowledge. It's the same field that total creation emerges from.
'How would you describe the broad potential impact of stress-reducing meditation?
'World peace . . . We could have peace within a year, if you know of anyone who has even $1 billion [to promote TM].'
Lynch went on to tell Donnis that various scientific experiments verifying the peace-promoting abilities of large groups of TM meditators had been conducted, including one in Washington, DC. Lynch said that even the DC police department admitted the project was a fantastic crime-fighting tool.
But, Lynch said, experiments are not enough. Lynch ended the interview by saying, 'It has to be now on a permanent basis. That's how come I'm out on the [national] tour.'
