Consciousness refers to an energized field of information which has powers to do everything in the universe. Collective consciousness represents the internet of the collective souls of many people in a group.

Collective consciousness is the strongest super power ever available in the universe. As per the Vedic texts, whatever is the intent of collective consciousness will become a reality. Scientifically, collective consciousness is driven by the principle of critical mass. Vedic literature has shown it to be 1% of the population under study.

The origin of the critical mass comes from 100th monkey phenomenon. Long ago, in Japan, a monkey named Emo used to eat dirty apples picked up from the ground every day. One day, an apple accidentally fell down in the nearby river, the dirt got washed off and he ate the washed apple. It tasted delicious. He started washing the apples thereafter every day. His fellow monkeys started following what he did. The process went on and a day came when the 100th monkey washed the apple and ate it. A strange phenomenon occurred. All monkeys in and around that area started washing the apple before eating. The no. 100 was the critical mass.

Once this mass is crossed, the information will spread like a wild fire and the intent becomes a universal reality. Vedic literature suggests that if 1% of the people of an area meditate together, the crime rate of that area declines. It also discusses the role of critical mass in prayers in achieving miracles.

Thus, the principle of critical mass is often used in designing and organizing an event. In a movie hall of 1000 people, if 10 people clap sitting in different areas everybody will clap. The same holds true for hooting at a particular scene. Most politicians make use of this principle while organizing election rallies. For a gathering of 10000 they need 100 and for a gathering of 1000 people they only need 10 supporters who are supposed to sit in different areas and shout or clap on given directions. The Mexican way of hooting or clapping in cricket grounds also follows the same principle. For a ground like Eden Gardens with a capacity of 75,000 people, only 750 people are required to control the mood of the people. Most successful leaders used this technology to lead.
