On the 22nd anniversary of the success of Pakistan’s nuclear test, Opposition Leader at the National Assembly Shahbaz Sharif was quoted as saying: “May 28 will always be remembered as the day when Pakistan’s defense was made invincible” (“Nawaz praised for ‘making Pakistan’s nuclear power'”, Dawn, May 29, 2020).
Invincibility is a commendable goal – but possessing nuclear weapons really makes Pakistan invincible during these times of high stress when terrorists can strike at any time. Despite sophisticated technology and valiant efforts, the Pakistani military is still struggling to eliminate violent extremism. In the end the only way to become truly invincible is to have no enemies. If there are no internal or external threats, there are no enemies. There are no enemies, no conflict. But how can such ideal goals be achieved when tension is so high? A scientifically validated approach is needed to reduce tensions that result in violent extremism.
Violent extremism is a human problem that requires human solutions. The fundamental cause of extremist social violence is the accumulation of social pressure. Therefore, to eliminate such social problems, this collective social pressure must be reduced.
The answer to the current high collective stress is within us. Inner peace is the basis of outer peace. By going inside, one gets clarity and is able to produce positive solutions that work for everyone. The proven way to utilize this inner wisdom is through non-religious Transcendental Meditation (TM) and strong brain-based technology known as Invincible Defense Technology (IDT) in the military. The military around the world formed Prevention Wings using IDT as an innovative and effective way to solve problems that could not be solved and create lasting peace.
IDT utilizes the TM program and its sophisticated techniques to produce a large increase in calmness, clarity of mind, happiness, creativity, and energy, as proven by hundreds of independent research studies. This evidence-based approach is very effective for conditions related to stress, brain function, and heart health.
In particular, the TM-Sidhi program that is more sophisticated is similar to using a laser rather than ordinary light; the effect is much stronger. Scientific research has shown repeatedly that this sophisticated IDT practice increases everyone’s awareness in their field. Positive solutions to ongoing problems occur naturally and people are more ready to shift from division to unity.
How could this happen? Even though it seems too simple to be true, sometimes the simplest approach is the most effective. Consider: IDT is used in Washington D.C. over a two-month period in the summer of 1993, in which 4000 meditators gathered for an attempt to reduce crime. The result, as documented by an independent criminologist council, is a 24 percent reduction in criminal violence. This deep reduction in social pressure also affects public approval from the US president, which suddenly changes from a negative trend to a positive trend, as predicted (Reference: Social Indicators Research, 1999, 47: 153-201).
A global experiment to assess the effect of advanced TM advanced practices on world trends was carried out in December 1983 for three weeks. While a group of more than 7,000 TM experts gathered in Fairfield, Iowa: international conflict decreased 32%, terrorist casualties decreased 72%, and infectious disease rates fell 33% in the US and Australia (Reference: Journal of Offender Rehabilitation, 2003, 36 Issue 1- 4).
A study published in May 2019 in Studies in Asian Social Sciences, found that the implementation of IDT by students trained in sophisticated TM resulted in a 96% reduction in sociopolitical violence in war-torn Cambodia compared to violence in the previous three years.
Extensive peer-reviewed scientific research repeatedly confirms that large groups of TM experts who meditate together twice a day produce strong terrain effects that affect the surrounding population by increasing the collective awareness of all people in their fields. This results in a measurable decrease in deaths from war, terrorism and crime.
For those who remain skeptical, we recommend the following book: Antidote to Violence: Evaluating Evidence, by Barry Spivack and Patricia Anne Saunders who detailed in-depth scientific research that supports this approach.
The Pakistani military is responsible for protecting Pakistan; funded and its personnel paid to do their job. Therefore it is imperative to examine carefully all defense technologies that have been scientifically proven to help them better protect the nation.
Thus, in the end they vowed to explore using the IDT to form the Pakistan Military Prevention Wings to make Pakistan truly invincible.
