A TM™ Tower That Does Nothing
File under: The Siddhi of PR
From the As-Useful-As-A-Cruise Ship Dock-In-The-Desert dept:
A MULTI-storey "tower of knowledge" may be built [in Adelaide, Australia] in honour of Dr Bevan Morris, a leader of the Transcendental Meditation™ movement...As it turns out, Morris is apparently "now the 'prime minister' of the Global Country of World Peace™." Whether it's for the whole delusion or just the Down Under portion, we don't know.
No one will live in the tower and it will be a permanent exhibition of the scientific research on the Maharishi Transcendental Meditation™ program.
It makes sense that Morris would want a monument built to himself while still alive. It makes up for the fact that the "government" he supposedly leads is relevant in a quantity too small for the human eye to see.
