Weapons do not make Iran invincible: A surprising method to reduce conflict

Invincibility is a commendable goal—but can powerful weapons really provide an invincible defense shield? writes David Leffler, Ph.D., executive director of the Center for Advanced Military Science, in ''Invincible'' means ''incapable of being defeated,'' he says. Military strategists everywhere acknowledge that conventional means of defense are powerless to protect the nation completely against modern destructive technologies.

In the article, Dr. Leffler quotes veteran U.N. Nepalese peacekeeper Lt. Col. Jitendra Jung Karki, a member of the Near East South Asia (NESA) Center for Strategic Studies at National Defense University in Washington, D.C., who addressed this issue in the Nepalese military periodical Shreenath Journal:

''Iran's leaders today have the option to consider and adopt a new, surprising, and scientifically verified method . . . ,'' Lt. Col. Karki said. ''It is called Invincible Defense Technology (IDT) and has absolutely nothing to do with high-tech defense systems, bullets, bombs, or killing. In fact, it has the potential to diminish the role of these approaches in the provision of national and international security.''

Extensive research published in the scientific literature has repeatedly demonstrated the effectiveness of IDT in reducing conflict, open warfare, and terrorism. IDT applies specific ''technologies of consciousness''—the Transcendental Meditation (TM) and TM-Sidhi programs, non-religious meditation techniques practiced worldwide by members of many countries and faiths—to produce societal coherence and eliminate conflict.

In a military context, when large groups of military personnel learn and apply these technologies of consciousness, high levels of collective national stress can be immediately and significantly reduced. . . . In an environment of less stress, even staunch adversaries may find ways to overcome differences.

This transformation occurs when a military creates a large group of warriors (called a ''Prevention Wing of the Military'') trained in IDT. . . . The collective practice of IDT by these groups neutralizes the societal stress that gives rise to conflict and enemies.

Read more about IDT in an article on Ecuador's Military Prevention Wing: ''Combating Stress in Police Work and Preventing Crime, Terrorism, and War.' Perhaps due to Ecuador's precedent, nine Latin American countries are due to achieve a statistical level of invincibility soon due to their IDT deployments in military and educational settings.

Dr. Leffler also describes substantial contributions in this field by John Hagelin, Ph.D., a renowned Harvard-trained quantum physicist and executive director of the Global Union of Scientists for Peace (GUSP). Dr. Hagelin and Captain (Ret.) Ray Seebald, a former U.S. Coast Guard Captain of the Port of Chicago and a military aide to Presidents Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush, spoke about IDT during the second Nuclear Security Summit in Seoul last March.

IDT is enormously effective and cost-effective, and the results are immediate, Dr. Leffler says in conclusion. . . . IDT is the best way for Iran to counter its daunting challenges of internal and external security.

For more information about IDT: Dr. Leffler and coauthors Dr. Hussain Khan, Dr. David Orme-Johnson, and Major General (Ret.) Kulwant Singh previously presented an innovative plan for military deployment of IDT in their pioneering article, Create an International Military Yogic-Flying Zone in Kashmir',' published in Pakistan Defence.

Dr. David Leffler received his Ph.D. in Consciousness-Based Military Defense from The Union Institute & University in Cincinnati. He served as an Associate of the Proteus Management Group at the Center for Strategic Leadership, US Army War College. He has published articles in over 400 locations worldwide about IDT and now serves as the Executive Director at the Center for Advanced Military Science (CAMS). Dr. Leffler teaches IDT and is available at
