America's dramatic new peace outreach to Iran, Syria, and North Korea due to rise of coherent national consciousness created by group of 1,600 advanced meditators in Iowa

US consumer confidence remains high despite tumult in global stock markets

US turnaround with 'Axis of Evil' nations

Associated Press: US in groundbreaking talks with North Korea—The United States and North Korea have begun unprecedented talks in New York in a first step toward normalizing ties after 50 years of tensions and cementing Pyongyang's commitment to scrapping its nuclear arms program.

Washington Post: It's called diplomacy—The clearest example of the administration's new outreach is its turnabout on discussions with Iran and Syria about how to stabilize Iraq.

Boston Globe: Diplomacy yielding results—The Bush administration's new emphasis on old-fashioned diplomacy with North Korea, Iran, and Syria appears to be bearing fruit.

The sudden turnaround in US foreign policy towards Iran, Syria, and North Korea—a dramatic shift away from confrontation and belligerence towards consensus building and peace—is the direct result of the increased coherence in national consciousness created by the large group of 1600 advanced Transcendental Meditation programme experts in Iowa.

This is the assessment of world-renowned quantum physicist Dr John Hagelin, who is leading the 'Invincible America Assembly' at Maharishi University of Management and Maharishi Vedic City, Iowa—the largest scientific demonstration project ever to monitor the effects on national trends of a group of advanced meditation experts.

The Assembly was launched 230 days ago on July 23, 2006, by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi to create coherent national consciousness—the basis of a peaceful, prosperous, invincible country.

Marked transformation in US foreign policy since the launch of the Invincible America Assembly

Since the Assembly launch, US foreign policy has undergone a marked transformation, starting in early August with the US-forged ceasefire on the Israeli-Lebanon border—a Mideast flashpoint for decades that is now in its seventh peaceful month. The most recent signs of rising national consciousness can be seen in the unexpected transformation of US policy towards Iran, Syria, and North Korea—three nations which the Bush administration branded in 2002 as the 'Axis of Evil' and which have been isolated as rogue, terrorist states until only a few weeks ago. Now in surprise moves that confounded policy analysts and political commentators, the US has joined talks with Iran and Syria in Baghdad to resolve the Iraq war. And the US is in serious negotiations with North Korea to put an end to the volatile and longstanding nuclear crisis.

At the same time, since the start of the Assembly, the US economy has enjoyed sustained growth, with the Dow climbing more than 1500 points—while oil prices have fallen from a high of $78 a barrel in July to the under $62 a barrel. And despite the recent tumult in global market prices, US consumer confidence remains high, according to a March 6 ABC News/Washington Post survey. That confidence is another sign of coherent national consciousness, Dr Hagelin said.

Positive trends predicted publicly in advance

Dr Hagelin said that rigorous statistical analysis shows that the upsurge of positive trends—predicted publicly in advance—started when an initial group of 1200 experts in Maharishi's Transcendental Meditation programme and its advanced techniques, including Yogic Flying, first assembled in Iowa from across the US and around the world to create coherent collective consciousness—the basis of the ongoing national transformation.

Extensive published scientific research documents the Maharishi Effect

Extensive research published in leading, peer-reviewed scientific journals documents the reduced negative trends, including reduced crime and violence, and improved economic and social trends when as few as the square root of one percent of a population practice Yogic Flying together in a group. Scientists named this phenomenon the 'Maharishi Effect' after Maharishi, the renowned Vedic scholar who 50 years ago founded the Transcendental Meditation programme, and who predicted the beneficial impact of group meditation on social trends as early as 1975.

Group of 2,000 Yogic Flyers needed to make the nation invincible

Dr Hagelin said that the group of 1,600 Yogic Flyers in the Assembly is sufficient to produce a positive influence in the political and economic trends of the nation, 'but not enough to raise the nation to a true state of peace and invincibility.'

Dr Hagelin said that, according to research, when the number of Yogic Flyers reaches the square root of one per cent of the US population (about 2,000), there will be an even more dramatic improvement in national trends, and any lingering problems in the country will be quickly resolved.

Invincible Assemblies being established worldwide

Dr Hagelin added that similar Invincible Assemblies are being established in large and small nations to form a 'ring of invincibility' around the world, to prevent problems, and to promote permanent peace and invincibility in every nation.

'This is not wishful thinking,' said Dr Hagelin, who serves as the Minister of Science and Technology of the Global Country of World Peace. 'This is hard science that has been field tested for over 50 years and documented through more than 600 studies conducted at over 250 independent universities and research institutes throughout the world.'

The Invincible America Assembly is being funded by an annual $12 million grant from the 'Howard and Alice Settle Foundation for an Invincible America.'
