On 12 September 2011 The Huffington Post reported: 'We were vulnerable and unprepared for September 11, 2001,' a journalist writes. 'Ten years later, we take off our shoes at airports and undergo full body scans. These measures might make some of us feel a little safer, . . . but authorities still caution of serious threats to national security. What if there were a viable, scientific means to significantly reduce the possibility of terrorist attacks--but because the approach is new and different, the most technologically advanced countries have not taken notice?' It is a joy for Global Good News service to feature this news, which indicates the success of the life-supporting programmes Maharishi has designed to bring fulfilment to the field of world peace.

In the article, writer Jeanne Ball describes an approach promoted by renowned quantum physicist Dr. John Hagelin—'one of the first scientists to apply the advanced knowledge of modern physics to social problems, such as terrorism.'

' ''A universal principle in nature is that internally coherent systems possess the ability to repel disruptive external influences,'' says Dr. Hagelin. ''While incoherent systems are easily penetrated by disorder from outside.'' '

As described in the Huffington Post article, 'an effective ''virtual fence'' against terrorism' can be created for the U.S.—one based not on cameras and radar, but on deeper scientific knowledge—in Dr Hagelin's words, 'of a single, unified field at the basis of all forms and phenomena in the universe'.

Because the unified field is 'the most fundamental level of everything,' Ms. Ball writes, 'it also is the basis of human consciousness,' and can be accessed directly through the Transcendental Meditation technique.

She refers to scientific research findings of increased coherence of brain functioning and reduced stress in individuals through Transcendental Meditation; and decreased terrorism, war deaths, and crime in society when large 'peace-creating' groups practice the technique and its advanced programs—'even a few thousand people practicing this ''unified field-based'' technology together are enough to create coherence for the whole country.'

'The orderliness of brain functioning in the individual spills over into society,' Dr. Hagelin explains. 'Since the unified field is an all-pervading field at the basis of consciousness and matter, when unity is enlivened in the individual, unity is enlivened everywhere. This is a field effect.'

The article concludes by quoting the UNESCO charter, 'which declares that ''wars begin in the human mind''. That is also the place where war and terrorism can end.'
