2+ million participants!
The Experiment that should give us the answers:
Imagine, over two million people connected through the internet, half undergoing a series of exercises designed to stimulate certain senses; either pain, pleasure, fear, tastes… And the other half writing down their responses, how they feel throughout the process, which sense was activated, and the type of feeling involved, trying to feel what the first group is experiencing. (And a small subgroup connected to sensitive detection equipment, monitoring minute reactions)
Every participant that is on the stimulus side would have certain things to gather before the test, and the ones on the sensing side would just need to prepare themselves; focus and relax and be ready to connect to their own feelings.
Examples of tests:
• Biting into a lemon
• Listening to soothing music
• Putting a finger on an ice cube for a period of time
• Watching a funny short video
• Eating sweets
• Seeing a very scary image flashed in front of them
• Biting a finger
• Smelling something very strong
Tests designed to generate strong sensory reactions in unison at precise times. Over one million people experiencing a very specific, and strong, sensory stimulus all at once, and over a million people waiting, monitoring themselves for any kind of feelings, reactions, and filling in their answers. All done online, participating in the biggest human experiment ever created. Everyone connected through a program guiding them along the process, questions and answers, stimulus and response, each participant in front of their screens following the prompts live, together, as a collective.
If this proves to be true, that we are all genuinely connected, it would be an earth shattering revelation. People the world over being aware that whatever they do to others, they also do to themselves, and to their loved ones, no matter where in the world they might be. Knowing that all form of suffering is shared by all, the suffering of even one starving child, the poor, the homeless…
Acts of violence, abuse, intolerance, racism, would all be seen through a new lens, from a new perspective. And also, that all positive feelings are also shared, encouraging people to share all that is good within themselves. How many people would stop hurting others in any kind of way, how many people would seek to spread love and happiness instead of hatred and suffering, to forgive, to show compassion. It would no longer be just a sort of spiritual idea, but an actual fact, that we are literally, physically, all connected to one another.
