Have any experiments been done to prove that this whole LOA idea really exists and works?

What are they?

Or is Inward Quest the only proof?

This question is vitally important. All scientific theories undergo testing to see if the theories hold up, or can be debunked. Much of this site is about the LOA and Manifesting, and has many people busy trying to make things happen with their lives. But do we have any proof of a solid scientific basis that the LOA exists? Or are we perpetuating a myth here- which would be a great disservice to the people who visit this site.

We don't even have absolute proof of channeled beings, let alone anything else. It is all very fascinating, but this question needs serious attention. The more people that reply with proof, the better.

I am hoping that we can make this idea of manifesting a scientific reality, instead of just an interesting and compelling idea.

jai, if it does not work once, it may not be a law

Thanks for asking such a beautiful question Jaianniah - there are two pillars of scientific understanding today;

  • the theory of relativity - the theory that space and time are linked, that is, they are relative
  • quantum mechanics - the theory of how everything happens excluding gravity

Lets take a closer look at the definition of scientific; Professor Brian Cox who works at the Large Hadron Collider in geneva


outlines to us what is probably the best definition of the scientific method, this definition was established by Richard Feynman, a brilliant scientist whose quantum theory of how light interacts with matter, still holds;


He defines it as;

  • first we take a guess
  • then we compute the consequences of this guess, that is, we see what this law would imply
  • then we compare these computation results with nature, that is, experimental observation
  • if it fits in it's correct otherwise forget it.

Now let's search around and see if there is already in existence a system that integrates all these scientific principles, and yes there is, it's the ba gua based on the two fundamental energies in the universe, yin/yang (positive/negative, light/dark) = the law of attraction.

The answer is yes, and the proof has been around for a while.

I've come across the statistic that about 500 scientific experiments have empirically proven the ability of intention to remotely influence physiological processes, as well as random number generators. The influence of the power of "intention" is certainly the law of attraction in action.

If you want to read more specific info, I recommend the work of Dr. William Tiller, for 30 years a Professor of Materials Science at Stanford University:




There are also a lot of good Youtube videos with Tiller.

Although, early in his career, Tiller was headed to the top of the scientific world, when his colleagues discovered his foray into experimenting with "spiritual" ideas, they "dropped him like a hot potato." As Tiller so succinctly explains, mainstream science isn't really seeking "the Truth", but rather "internal self-consistency."

The CIA also proved that remote viewing was a very real phenomenon, in their "Stargate Project" (no, I'm not making this up). The program was eventually shut down because the remote viewers didn't have a high enough success rate to be useful to U.S. intelligence and the military. Their success rate was, however, statistically much higher than random chance. Several books have been published by former participants of the program.

I just received an email about this very thing, the email is from The Law Of Attraction Key, the Email subject Scientific Proof....

Here is the link to The Leaf Experiment pdf file.

Scientific Proof... Fri, Feb 15, 2013 3:49 PM EST

Hi Wade!

I'm sure you have heard about the power of setting intentions.

And maybe you have wondered if it's all a bunch of hype or if it really does any good...

I get it, I used to wonder that exact thing. So I did a whole bunch of research and guess what...

There is scientific proof that setting intentions works. And what that means to you is that setting positive intentions will have a massive impact on how quickly you manifest what you desire.

So here's the proof...

This is SO cool - The Intention Experiment is a series of scientifically controlled, web-based experiments testing the power of intention to change the physical world. Thousands of volunteers from 30 countries around the world have participated in Intention Experiments thus far.

Lynne McTaggart, architect of the experiments, is working with leading physicists and psychologists from the University of Arizona, Princeton University, the International Institute of Biophysics, Cambridge University and the Institute of Noetic Sciences.

These experiments have produced extraordinary results. There is one experiment in particular that I found amazing, you can read about it here:

You are Extraordinary!

Yes, look at quantum physics. Also, look at Lynn McTaggert's research in a book called, The Intention Experiment. The power of the mind to affect external "reality" is being proven. Although some people say the effect size is small, maybe that's all it takes.
