 Carl Wonneman, 75
 Obit, Fairfield Ledger:
 Died March 11, 2017
 Born May 27, 1943
 Served four years in the United States Navy in the Underwater Demolition 
Program as a “frogman”. 
 Received a MBA from Maharishi International University. 

 Yep, someone recently was telling me there were about a 100 people who became 
TM teachers out of St. Louis, Columbia, Kansas City and the Cape. Carl seems to 
have also been of the Missouri TM cohort for a time.

 His friends called him, 'Big-Beefy'. Tim Hildebrandt told a story about Carl 
saying one time when they were teaching TM in the St. Louis area they were in 
rough area using a motel to initiate in. They went out for a meal and on coming 
back Carl's tape recorder was missing from the room. He went out to his car, 
got a baseball bat and went down a few doors banging on a door to where some 
guys were hanging out saying to them that he was missing his tape recorder and 
was going out for a while but that the tape recorder better be back when he 
returns or.. "heads will roll". The tape recorder was back in its place when he 
got back. 

 Wait.  Karl ( Carl) Wannaman?  I knew him.  He was part of the Cape Giradeau, 
Mo. contingent if it is who I am thinking of. Would have been friends with 
George Todt and Tim Hildebrandt, (deceased). 

 I would not have pegged him as the Navy Seal type, though, or a healer, for 
that matter, but he was a nice fellow.

 Carl W0nneman passed away last night. An old devotee of Maharishi, very much a 
part of the Fairfield, Iowa Meditating Satsanga. A cultivated spiritual guy, a 
healer. He was a Navy Seal before there were Navy Seals, went to Viet Nam. He 
met Maharishi while surfing and walking on the beach one day in Malibu. Later 
he went to TM teacher training. For a while Maharishi made him a checker of 
advanced techniques. In his later years he was resident in Fairfield and very 
much present in the meditating community. The last couple of years he was 
confined in a nursing home in Fairfield. I am grateful to have known him, he 
taught me the night technique the way Maharishi taught it to him.  I will miss 
him.   “Free at last, he is free, thank god almighty he is free at last”.

 Meditators; it's been a long time, it's been a sacrifice at times to have been 
here. You came bravely, proudly. You're a special group. You've found in one 
another a bond that exists possibly only among siblings. You've shared 
community, held each other in dire moments. You've seen friends in their death 
here and we have all suffered together at times to be here. I'm proud to have 
meditated with each and every one of you. You all who came and joined the 
Fairfield, Iowa group meditation deserve long and happy rest in peace.

 Rates of Change.  The calculus of aging in TM.. 

 Some of what we can see in these lists is a natural aging-out of the Post-War 
Cohort, of the people who were early with Maharishi in the very early SRM 
movement,  the Walter Koch and Charlie Lutes generation of TM. 

 Now what we are seeing in TM is an accelerating rate of attrition to aging-out 
of the Boomer I and Boomer II’s.  Interestingly, the cusp time period where the 
Boomers I and Boomers II met was the time frame where TM took off in popular 
(college undergrad, grad student, professor-age) culture for a time.  A lot of 
the TM movement intake happened in those years 1968-76, over the cusp of the 
Boomers I and II.  

 You can see this particular cusp in the age span of meditators in the Dome or 
at campus meetings of the TM community now.  The WWII generation is pretty much 
gone from the ranks of TM now.  The Post-War Cohort are pretty gone or 
geriatric now and the Boomers I are increasingly shuffling or gone on.  Boomers 
II are increasingly ‘in diminish’.  Time is short regardless.  

 Post-War Cohort
 Born: 1928-1945
 Coming of Age: 1946-1963
 Age in 2004: 59 to 76
 Current Population: 41 million (declining)
