1 Giant Mind is a global research and education organization based in California. Their mission is to coordinate the largest simultaneous global experiences of “eyes closed silence” in human history and measure the collective effect through scientific research. They are working towards uniting 100 million people to participate simultaneously in a global event and have the worlds’ leading scientific researchers’ study the effect on individuals, communities and society.1 Giant Mind also proposes to further the study of the effect of the collective human mind by conducting experiments on a scale never before attempted in human history.
Dedicated to the research and education of the effects of collective meditation, they use the term ‘eyes-closed silence’. Eyes Closed Silence (ECS) refers to any mental process including most common practices of meditation, prayer, observance of the breath, and contemplation that induces a set of integrated psycho physiological changes termed as the ‘relaxation response’.
