  Research - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Research is often described as an active, diligent, and systematic process of inquiry aimed at discovering, interpreting, and revising facts.
The term research is also used to describe a collection of information about a particular subject, and is usually associated with science and the scientific method.
It is not unusual for researchers to present their project in such a light as to 'slot' it into either applied or basic research, depending on the requirements of the funding sources.

 Science - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Scientists maintain that scientific investigation must adhere to the scientific method, a process for evaluating empirical knowledge that explains observable events in nature as results of natural causes, rejecting supernatural notions.
Workers in corporate research laboratories also practice science, although their results are often deemed trade secrets and not published in public journals.
While scientific journals communicate and document the results of research carried out in universities and various other institutions, science magazines cater to the needs of a wider readership.

 Scientific Research on the Benefits of Transcendental Meditation.
Other research has found that meditating individuals in their mid-50s have a biological age twelve years younger than their chronological age, and that people beginning the practice even at 80 years of age live longer and are healthier and happier than controls of the same age.
Research has further demonstrated that when groups practicing the Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhi programs are introduced into a city, state, or country anywhere in the world, then crime decreases, there are fewer traffic accidents, and the quality of life improves in that area.
Published research has shown that increases in the size of the group have an influence in both the United States and Canada, resulting in fewer violent deaths due to homicides, suicides, and traffic fatalities, a reduction in unemployment and inflation; and a general improvement in the quality of life.

 Ridges and Furrows - Scientific Researchers
In the late 1800's, Kollmann of Hamburg Germany, was the first researcher to address the formation of friction ridges on the fetus and the random physical stresses and tensions which may have played a part in their growth.
Alfred Hale was an associate of Harold Cummins at Tulane University.  In 1952 he published a paper called "Morphogenesis of the Volar Skin in the Human Fetus".  His paper documents the actual stages of  friction ridge development in addition to describing friction ridge skin formation on the human fetus.
In summary...scientific research (including hundreds of years of observation by scientific researchers and friction ridge identification specialists) has played a significant role in supporting all premises of friction ridge identification.

These studies have been gathered in Scientific Research on the Maharishi Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhi programmes, Volumes 1-6, containing over 4,000 pages of scientific papers and appear below in the Bibliography of 508 TM programme studies.
Transcendental Consciousness has been found by physiological research to be a fourth major state of consciousness, a state of restful alertness, distinct from the commonly experienced states of waking, dreaming, and deep sleep.
Research has further confirmed that large groups practicing the TM-Sidhi programme together in one place-approximately the square root of one percent of the population-radiate an influence of orderliness and harmony in the society at large.
