A new technology of defense is now available that has been
scientifically shown to prevent war and create peace by harnessing
the deepest level of nature's functioning.

War is ultimately a human problem requiring a human solution.

Scientists postulate that the underlying cause of war is accumulated
social stress. As social stress builds, groups take sides, diplomats
become unable to resolve their differences, and enemies arise within
or outside the nation.

Any military organization is theoretically a deterrent shield that
permits national policy to be executed without armed interference.

When social division and enemies directly challenge this execution of
national policy, military force can be invoked to protect the nation by
means of deployment and action. At this point, armed conflict results,
with unpredictable outcomes. But even if conflict temporarily solves
the problem for the victor, the social stress remains, fueling future
cycles of conflict. In contrast, the absence of collective stress
translates into the absence of tension between competing sides,
thereby reducing the probability of hostilities.

Today, the military of Armenia has an opportunity to overcome the
cycle of war by deploying a scientifically verified technology of
defense that neutralizes social stress. This technology is based on
the unified field of all the laws of nature - the most fundamental
and powerful level of nature's dynamics. Since the unified field
is the source of the objective world, its power cannot be harnessed
through objective technologies. A new approach is needed - one that
draws upon subjective traditions of meditation.

The late Maharishi Mahesh Yogi revived systematic subjective
technologies for experiencing the unified field, including the
Transcendental Meditation program and its advanced techniques. When
used in a military context these meditation practices are known as
Invincible Defence Technology (IDT). They have been successfully
applied by members of many faiths to eliminate conflict. If the
Armenian military were to apply these non-lethal and non-destructive
technologies, Armenia could reduce collective societal stress and
resultant tensions.

Over 50 research studies confirm that when the required threshold
of IDT experts is crossed - approximately the square root of 1% of
a given population - crime goes down, quality of life indices go up,
and war and terrorism abate. Scientists have named this phenomenon the
Maharishi Effect, as Maharishi Mahesh Yogi first predicted it. The
causal mechanism appears to be a field effect of consciousness -
a spillover effect on the level of the unified field from the
peace-creating group into the larger population.

In 1993, a two-month Maharishi Effect intervention was implemented
in Washington, DC. The findings published in Social Indicators
Research showed that crime fell 24 percent when the peace-creating
group reached its maximum size. A global-scale study published in
the Journal of Offender Rehabilitation documented a 72% drop in
international terrorism.

The Armenian military is responsible for defending the country. It can
now succeed in this mission simply by creating a Prevention Wing -
a coherence-creating group of IDT experts exceeding the square root
of 1% of the population of Armenia - approximately 177 soldiers.

As part of its responsibility to protect the nation, Armenia's military
is obligated to thoroughly examine scientifically proven methods for
preventing war and terrorism. All that is necessary is to provide
the proper training for a group of military personnel - or indeed,
any large group within the country. Armenia has the opportunity today
through IDT to create national security, invincibility, and peace. But
the time to act is now.
