Dr John Hagelin's upcoming address on 'National Security' at a conference on 21 March highlights growing recognition of the urgent need of governments for programs based on total Natural Law—as explained fully in Dr Hagelin's book, Manual for a Perfect Government, now in its second printing:

For the last quarter century, Dr. John Hagelin has led an international investigation into the nature and origin of consciousness, including higher states of human consciousness. In his seminal book, Manual for a Perfect Government, Dr. Hagelin shows how, through educational programs that develop human consciousness, and through policies and programs that effectively harness the laws of nature, it is possible to solve and to prevent acute social problems, and to profoundly enhance governmental achievements.

'Governments everywhere are in crisis—torn by conflicting interests and facing seemingly intractable challenges. This is because governmental theory and policy are rooted in obsolete 19th century principles, not in a comprehensive scientific understanding of how Nature functions.

'Today's unified quantum field theories reveal the ultimate unity underlying all life, confirming the timeless wisdom of the ages. This unified reality and its applied technologies, from both modern science and the ancient Vedic science of consciousness reformulated and systematized by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, promote an ideal, problem-free administration in which myriad tendencies in society are managed with the same skill and efficiency with which Nature governs the vast universe.

'The problems of our age are human problems. Crime, terrorism, drug dependency, even pollution result from failure to comprehend life's essential unity. The only way we can overcome these problems is through the expansion of consciousness—education that actualizes the full potential of the brain. With maximally expanded consciousness, individuals naturally behave in their own best long-term interests while simultaneously promoting the interests of society as a whole—action fully aligned with natural law.

'We now possess a profound and scientific understanding of natural law that can bring peace to the world, and at last fulfill the dreams of America's Founders—a self-governing nation, where all citizens naturally respect and promote each other's rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.' —Dr. John Hagelin
