8400 People for World Peace
A page with vital information on how it only takes 8400 people to create World Peace
Why 8400 people?
I am grateful for Gregg Braden's research, published in his book Awakening the Power of a Modern God, a summary which may be found at this link. I have reprinted a few paragraphs below with edits to update the current population numbers.
In 1972, 24 cities in the United States with populations over 10,000 experienced meaningful changes in their communities when as few as 1 percent (100 people) participated. These and similar studies led to a landmark study, the International Peace Project in the Middle East, which was published in the Journal of Conflict Resolution in 1988.
During the Israeli-Lebanese war of the early 1980s, researchers trained a group of people to "feel" peace in their bodies rather than simply to think about peace in their minds or pray "for" peace to occur.
On specific days of the month, at specific times of each day, these people were positioned throughout the war-torn areas of the Middle East. During the window of time that they were feeling peace, terrorist activities stopped, crimes against people declined, emergency room visits declined, and traffic accidents dropped.
When the people stopped their feelings, the statistics reversed. These studies confirmed the earlier findings; when a small percentage of the population achieved peace within themselves, that peace was reflected in the world around them.
The findings took into account the days of the week, holidays, and even lunar cycles, and data were so consistent that the researchers were able to identify how many people are needed to share the experience of peace before peace is mirrored in their world. The number is the square root of 1 percent of the population. This formula produces numbers that are smaller than we might expect. For example, in a city of 1 million people, the number is about 100. In a world of 7 billion people, the number is only about 8,400! This number represents only the minimum needed to begin the process. The more the people, the faster an effect is created. (Emphasis mine)
This page is dedicated to organizing a group large enough to create an effect for world peace. Here is how this works:
The world population clock below shows our current population.
The chart below the clock uses Braden's formula to show the number of people we need committed to daily feeling peace in their bodies before peace will be achieved.
Now there is peace on Earth, and it has begun with me.
Now there is peace on Earth, the peace that was meant to be.
With God as Creator, united all are we.
Now we walk with each other, in perfect harmony.
Peace has begun with me, and this is the moment now.
With every breath I take, let this be my joyous vow.
I take each moment, and live each moment in peace eternally
Now there is peace on Earth, and it has begun with me!
