Can ‘Good Intentions’ Save Lake Atitlan From Sure Cyanobacteria Death?
If channeled the right way, a group of scientists say: ‘yes’!

The world is filled with millions of good intentions, but still the world seems to be spiraling downward into a sea of chaos.
In the case of Lake Atitlan, the sea of chaos has turned into much ado about toxic cyanobacteria.
The green algae outbreak last year that covered 85 per cent of the surface of the 30,000 acre lake, has people scrambling for answers before it’s too late.
Since everybody concerned is searching, why not put those millions of good intentions to work?
What do we have to lose? Although it sounds a bit too “New Age” when times are desperate, the desperate will try anything.
And according to author Lynn McTaggart of The Intention Experiment and a group of scientists, good intentions directed in the right way can lead to practical results instead of just a lot of hot air.
“The Intention Experiment is a series of scientifically controlled, web-based experiments testing the power of intention to change the physical world,” wrote McTaggart, author of the top selling book, The Intention Experiment “Thousands of volunteers from 30 countries around the world have participated in Intention Experiments thus far.
McTaggart is the architect of the experiments which have included trying to reduce pollution at other lakes like Atitlan in an effort to harness thousands of good intentions at a certain designated time to bring about positive results.
She is working with physicists and psychologists from the University of Arizona, Princeton University, the International Institute of Biophysics, Cambridge University and the Institute of Noetic Sciences.These experiments are being run at McTaggart’s seminars and conferences and on the web, and have produced extraordinary results.

The relief organization, Save Lake Atitlan Mission, is in contact with people running the web site to see if organizing an experiment at Lake Atitlan is possible.
A recent intention experiment was held on March 22 in an effort to help clean up pollution at Lake Biwa in Japan. Here is what McTaggert had to say about the experiment on her web site blog:
As I’ve told you in earlier weeks, we will be taking our Intention Experiment live to Japan on March 22 for the first ‘live’ Clean Water Experiment.
But I also have some really exciting news. If you cannot join us in Lake Biwa, you can still join us in the world’s largest Water Intention Experiment — right in front of your own computer.
This time, I’ll be working with working with Russian physicist Konstantin Korotkov, of St. Petersburg Technical University. Dr. Korotkov developed the Gas Discharge Visualization (GDV) technique, which makes use of state-of-the-art optics, digitized television matrices and a powerful computer to capture the faint light emissions, or biophoton emissions, from living things.
Korotkov’s technique stirs by ‘evoking’, or stimulating them into an excited state so that they shine millions of times more intensely than normal.
His GDV equipment blends several techniques: photography, measurements of light intensity and computerized pattern recognition. He has carried out thousands of studies on humans showing that subtle changes of intention change a person’s light emissions.
A computer program then extrapolates from this a real-time image of the ‘biofield’ surrounding the person and deduces from it the state of health in the case of a person.
Changing the molecular bonds
In the case of liquids, the GDV machine is also able to examine the emission activity on the surface of the liquid — that is, its ability to retain important information from other molecules and its molecular cluster structure.
The emission activity of the surface of these liquids depends upon the presence of clusters of hydrogen atoms with a special ability to bond. It is this special property, Korotkov believes, that gives water its unique capacity to record and retain information.
The ‘structure’ of water, from a scientific point of view, refers to the molecular arrangements of individual water molecules (which are, you know two atoms of hydrogen and one of oxygen). The molecules form units, or ‘clusters’, which remain stable anywhere from a part of a second to several weeks.
The way in which water molecules cluster together can vary enormously — a bit like a set of Lego. For instance, water can contain molecular clusters of up to several hundred H2O units apiece.
There is good evidence both that pure and healing water has a different structure to that of tap or polluted water. There is also evidence that this structure can be altered by subtle effects, such as that of human intention.
Three earlier Intention Experiments
The Intention Experiment has run three experiments attempting to change the molecular cluster structure of water – two with Dr. Korotkov and one with Dr. Rustum Roy, materials science specialist at Pennsylvania State University.
Two demonstrated changes, and one result was inconclusive. For full details see our Experiments page on our main website:The Intention Experiment. Scroll down the page and click on the two Korotkov experiment links and then one for the Roy Experiment.
At Lake Biwa Dr. Korotkov will take samples of the lake water and under controlled conditions, allow the audience to send intention to make the water purer by changing its structure.
We’ll also be examining the water for two other affects. We’ll be looking for changes in pH before and after the experiment. Dr. Korotkov will also arrange for scientists to study the bacteria content of the sample and the controls after the experiment.
In one of the first experiments, McTaggart asked a group of 16 meditators based in London to direct their thoughts to four remote targets in Dr. Popp’s laboratory in Germany: two types of algae, a plant and a human volunteer.
The mediators were asked to attempt to lower certain measurable bio- dynamic processes. Popp and his team discovered significant changes in all four targets while the intentions were being sent, compared to times the mediators were ‘resting’.
