Other Research

The small amount of previous research on the Three Principles seems to shown interesting results and a number of Universities in the USA* are developing programmes of study based around this understanding. However, there has been very little empirical scientific data to back up the enormous volume of anecdotal information collected by facilitators working in many different fields. It would seem that much data has been collected from Principle based projects but there has been no infrastructure or funding in place to carry out formal analysis.
