# World Peace Experiment Why the goal has changed to 90,000?

When Victor and I were inspired to start the World Peace Experiment in 1996 the world population was estimated to reach 6.4 billion in a few years. Our goal was to reach 80,000 participants by start of the new millennium. At that time we received many inquiries as to how we came up with the figure of 80,000 people. Here was our explanation given in 1996:

Physicists tell us that according to the laws of wave mechanics, the intensity of any kind of waves that are in phase with each other is the square of the sum of the waves. In other words, two waves added together are four times as intense as one wave, ten waves are one hundred times as intense, etc.

Since thought is an energy, and all energy occurs as waves - we believe that 80,000 people all thinking the same thing together are as powerful, in terms of creating the reality that we all share, as the random chaotic thought of the 6.4 billion people (80,000 times 80,000) that will soon inhabit the planet.

Therefore, 80,000 people who believe that only love prevails, will create a laser of intent that will change the planetary reality.

Well, we didn't reach our projected goal by 2001. In fact here we are in 2012 and still have not reached our goal. Yet, we haven't given up on the idea. However, since the world population has now exceeded over seven billion people, we found that that we needed to change the formula for achieving our goal. Therefore, we are now attempting to recruit 90,000 people to engage in this consciousness shifting process that we hope to achieve by 2020 (or before). Why 90,000? The same explanation applies as before but now with updated numbers:

As stated before, thought is an energy, and all energy occurs as waves. Therefore, we hope to prove that 90,000 people all thinking the same thing together are as powerful, in terms of creating the reality we all share, as are the random chaotic thoughts of a little over eight billion people that are projected to inhabit the planet by 2020.
