Preventing Confrontation in the Middle East by Smothering the Political Fire
By Maj Gen (Ret) Kulwant Singh and Dr David Leffler

A new technology of defense is now available that has been scientifically shown to prevent war and create peace by harnessing the deepest level of nature's functioning.
War is ultimately a human problem requiring a human solution. Scientists postulate that the underlying cause of war is accumulated social stress. As social stress builds, groups take sides, diplomats become unable to resolve their differences, and enemies arise within or outside the nation. Any military organization is theoretically a deterrent shield that permits national policy to be executed without armed interference. When social division and enemies directly challenge this execution of national policy, military force can be invoked to protect the nation by means of deployment and action. At this point, armed conflict results, with unpredictable outcomes. But even if conflict temporarily solves the problem for the victor, the social stress remains, fueling future cycles of conflict. In contrast, the absence of collective stress translates into the absence of tension between competing sides, thereby reducing the probability of hostilities.
Today, the militaries in the Middle East have an opportunity to overcome the cycle of war by deploying a scientifically verified technology of defense that neutralizes social stress. This technology is based on the unified field of all the laws of nature - the most fundamental and powerful level of nature's dynamics. Since the unified field is the source of the objective world, its power cannot be harnessed through objective technologies. A new approach is needed - one that draws upon subjective traditions of meditation.
The late Maharishi Mahesh Yogi revived systematic subjective technologies for experiencing the unified field, including the Transcendental Meditation program and its advanced techniques. When used in a military context these meditation practices are known as Invincible Defence Technology (IDT). They have been successfully applied by members of many faiths to eliminate conflict. If the militaries of the Middle East were to apply these non-lethal and non-destructive technologies, they could reduce collective societal stress and resultant tensions.
Over 50 research studies confirm that when the required threshold of IDT experts is crossed - approximately the square root of 1% of a given population - crime goes down, quality of life indices go up, and war and terrorism abate. Scientists have named this phenomenon the Maharishi Effect, as Maharishi Mahesh Yogi first predicted it. The causal mechanism appears to be a field effect of consciousness - a spillover effect on the level of the unified field from the peace-creating group into the larger population.
In 1993, a two-month Maharishi Effect intervention was implemented in Washington, DC. The findings published in Social Indicators Research showed that crime fell 24 percent when the peace-creating group reached its maximum size. A global-scale study published in the Journal of Offender Rehabilitation documented a 72% drop in international terrorism.
All militaries in the Middle East are responsible for defending their respective countries. They can now all succeed in their missions simply by creating a Prevention Wing - a group of IDT experts. The size of the Prevention Wing would be small - approximately the square root of 1% of the population of the country. For example, the United Arab Emirates would only need approximately 220 soldiers in its Prevention Wing. Alternatively, a large coherence-creating group of 1,717 IDT experts, exceeding the square root of 1% of the entire Middle East population, would create a similar effect of peace throughout the entire region.
As part of its responsibility to protect their nations, militaries are obligated to thoroughly examine scientifically proven methods for preventing war and terrorism. All that is necessary is to provide the proper training for groups of military personnel - or indeed, any large groups within their countries. All the countries in the Middle East have the opportunity today through IDT to create national security, invincibility, and peace. But the time to act is now.
