So clearly, you have to statistically remove any crime to make the figures 
"right"..
Ha ha ha ha! And that's exactly how the Movement screws around with the 
numbers. What a bunch of frauds.

It's rubbish in other words.
Funnily enough I was reading about statistics and paranormal research the other 
day. There's a guy called Dean Radin - friend of Fred Travis and member of the 
institute of noetic research - who "proved" via statistical analysis that the 
human mind has magical powers like telepathy and precognition. The amazing 
thing about his research is that he statistically meta - analysed hundreds of 
decent papers that had found no such thing!
This is clever, he can "prove" there are paranormal powers without anyone ever 
demonstrating any such thing! A first for science, makes me wonder why his 
institute isn't taken seriously..
Lies, damn lies, statistics etc..

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...
Or a single gun rampage could have on otherwise also unconvincing statistics in 
Washington or Lebanon.
[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.
So clearly, you have to statistically remove any crime to make the figures 
"right"...
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.
And the larger amount of criminals in large towns make the statistics 
unconvincing in those cases in exactly the same way. But it's nice that Buck 
doesn't have to worry about anything affecting the "science" in Fairfield.

 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

more money to the TMO, you know, to get more pundits and increase the Dome 
numbers - ha ha!
