Bruce and John Klingbeil isolated two imprints conveyed by some prayers and some placebos through experiment, theory, and the analysis of effects.

The two imprints are: 1. An imprint that promotes a goal. 2. An imprint that fits a need. How did they test them? They compared the imprints of goals against imprints of love and quality that subtly nudge toward order.

Bruce and John also supplied a new theory about why the human mind distorts our memories of spiritual and other paranormal experiences.

Both Klingbeils worked as Christian Science practitioners. They asked, "How should we address new technology and virtual reality that overwhelm spirituality and religion?" The father and son founded Spindrift to support research in the fields of consciousness, prayer, and spirituality.

Spindrift tested positive and negative prayers. Years before 9/11, Spindrift urged people to pay attention to the negative prayers as dark promises by Islamic terrorists. Cyber evil tunnels through the Internet to hit targets. Negative prayer tunnels through dark consciousness to hit targets. Dark consciousness directed to kill has become a colossal problem for religion.

Science is a method of finding out how the world works. Religion is a way of finding out why the world works. Healing is a way of ensuring that the world works. Spindrift’s experiments on the physical effects of prayer are an exciting example of trying to forge links between science, religion, and healing. All power to their elbow!
