The Oraworld Resonance is the "First Action" in a planned series of
experiments in the culture of peace and non-violence.
It is a work of art and activism by Sonia Deotto, who has been gathering
energies from people around the world over the past few years.
The Organization for Resonance Through Art (ORA) is the symbol
of the aspiration and effort to create a worldwide community of
participants from many different cultures and traditions who share the
vision of a peaceful planet, and are willing to explore their own
evolution, and those of their associated institutions, in fulfillment of
that vision. It will therefore be a laboratory for experimentation in a
non-violent society and lifestyle, through individual and collective
resonance with one another and with the Earth. The art and edifice of
the Mandala we wish to create will reflect a worldwide map of social
values, ideas, knowledge and resources of the different participants who
express innovative currents and dynamic interactions to demonstrate the
interdependence of all life.

"Opening an Archive of the Earth"
This proposal for the action on the 23rd April is a presentation of the
work in progress started by the oraworldmandala association, on the 10th
March 2005 in partnership and co-operation with the Gujarat Vidyapith
founded by Mahatma Gandhi, the Sabarmati Ashram, Tribals from Panchmahal
District of Gujarat, the 11 religious communities living in Ahmedabad
represented by 25-30 people each, and artistic, scientific and social
institutions, individuals and the press.
The object of the action is to spend a day together, dedicated to a
global consciousness of the aspiration for a culture of peace and
non-violence, and to open an "Archive of the Earth" with the soils
offered by the various participating groups and individuals.
The original, detailed description of the action is available as a Word
document: First Action Plan.
A brief description of the intent and structure of the
project as a whole may be found at the Oraworld Website.
The formal hypothesis test for the GCP data will apply our
"standard analysis" for the period from 6:20 am to 20:15
India time, which is 00:50 to 14:45 UTC on April 23.
The result is a striking positive trend during most of the day. The
Chisquare is 50804 on 50100 df, which is equivalent to Z=2.216 and
