Meditation to Heal the World... Oooohhhmmmm...

David Lynch, Twin Peaks creator, has announced that he has set up a foundation (David Lynch Foundation for Consciousness-Based Education) to raise 7 billion dollars to accomplish world peace through meditation. How does that work you ask? Well, apparently 8,000 Transcendental Meditation practitioners bring world peace by creating a "unified field" of stress-free brain waves over the Earth.
"It's so possible," Lynch says. "You have education that brings a student to his full potential, and it's so possible to set up peacemaking groups to bring peace to Earth. It's so possible." (source)
This is my biggest problem with celebrities and obnoxiously rich people in general --they have all this disposable money and they set up useless "foundations" and throw "awareness" concerts instead of actually helping. Take that 7 billion and feed the entire continent of Africa...
