The Maharishi Effect has always, at least in the theoretical discussions, been 
a "big numbers" effect that requires statistical analysis to catch.
Which means its horseshit - if its as magical as they claim, it would work 
large or small - its a con artist deal on the part of the Movement, nothing 
more.

    The Maharishi Effect has always, at least in the theoretical discussions, 
been a "big numbers" effect that requires statistical analysis to catch.
By theory, a town the size of Fairfield would be too small to really see the 
effect manifest reliably, regardless of what research beleivers decided to 
publicize in order to encourage other believers to participate more regularly.
Consider the effect that a single pickpocketing Sidha would have on Fairfield's 
crime-rate, for example...
[By the way, I came up with that example on a Washington, DC course a year or 
two before the course that lead to the resarch everyone likes to pooh-pooh -a 
pickpocket had slipped into the gathered sidhas outside the flying hall, and 
was working the crowd so the police were called]
The activities of a single criminal in a crowd of several thousand are 
sufficient to raise the crime-rate in that crowd, no matter how "enlghtened" 
they are as individuals and the fact that this person was willing to roam 
freely amongst the TMers meant his behavior wasn't noticeably affected by their 
presence - in fact, you cold argue that his behavior was *inspired* by their 
presence.
The same issue holds true for a town of 10,000, like Fairfield. It is only when 
you get to the level of communities with a million or more people that the 
Maharishi Effect is (according to the theoretical papers) supposed to be 
reliably detectable since a single person's behavior is lost in the statistics 
involving hundreds or thousands of criminals.

 Since the number of Pundits is down to about 200 and the number of TM-Sidhas 
practicing is way below the number their theory says is required, the most they 
could say is that they have failed to have a positive effect on Ferguson 
because they have failed to keep their numbers sufficiently high.

227.5 miles - evidently the Marshy Effect is still to funnel money from TB'ers 
pockets to the TMO's coffers, rather than create peace. OF course, the TMO will 
have a different spin on the situation, the remedy of which will include giving 
more money to the TMO, you know, to get more pundits and increase the Dome 
numbers - ha ha!
