What would happen if everyone in the world could concentrate on one thing at the same time?
I've just seen this video called The Love Competition wherein the "contestants" of the competition will lie in an fMRI for 5 minutes and love someone as hard as they can, and whoever generates the greatest level of activity in the brain regions involved with those feelings of love wins.
Toward the end of the video, people discuss the way they feel after exiting the machine, and they were glowing. Thinking about love for 5 minutes straight made them leave feeling good and full. So I got to thinking, what would happen if everyone in the world or, maybe to start a little smaller, everyone in a room concentrated on love at the same time. Or any abstract concept that evokes emotions in human beings for that matter. What would happen? If someone not a part of the experiment walked in the room, would they feel it?
When you're in a crowd in a concert and everyone is hyped up, you feed off that energy, right? Could the same be said for a situation like this? What say ye!?
