He influenced the Beatles for a number of years and became a Pop Star in his own right. Much of the furthering of research into the more dreamy side of Quantum Physics was thanks to his influence to New Age culture, inspiring the smart hippies who then went to college with the ideas and were able to explore them mathematically.

TM is a “third way”, both Science and Religion and neither Science nor Religion – such is how it markets itself.

That’s not to say that it’s “bad” per se; I know many people knowing practitioners of TM.

I just have skeptical eyes towards it. I was raised with bits and pieces of New Age thought and so they kinda stick out like a sore thumb to me.
