Positive Thinking = Bomb Counter-Measure?

What’s the “ultimate ‘left-of-the-boom’” counter-measure for defeating the Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) that are the biggest killer of U.S. and allied troops in Iraq and Afghanistan? Is it aerial surveillance combined with thorough, neighborhood patrolling, to find and capture bomb teams? Is it counter-finance efforts aimed at locking down bomb-makers’ bank accounts? Is it winning the support of the local population, to create a hostile home environment for bombers?

No, according to Dr. David R. Leffler, Executive Director of the Center for Advanced Military Science, a project of the Institute for Science, Technology and Public Policy, located in Fairfield, Iowa. Leffler wrote me last week to plug what he calls the “Invincible Defense Technology,” capable of rendering nations invincible.

That’s right. Invincible. Here’s Leffler:

The root cause of terrorism lies in the human mind and there it must be eliminated. Therefore, the root of the problem is not the IEDs or other weapons as technical devices, but the terrorist as a deranged human being who wants to make use of the IEDs to pursue his goals. Ultimately, what is needed is a technology that prevents not just IEDs, but any terrorism threat by preventing the enemy from arising.

And how do we do that? By accessing, via meditation, the “Unified Field” that connects all human beings.

Like energetic radio waves, accessing the Unified Field through techniques of consciousness causes “field effects” in the surrounding social environments. Therefore, the field effects of the Unified Field enhance the orderliness of social relations. Orderliness reduces friction and its social equivalent: enmity. With no enmity between them, former enemies become allies, and the nations become invincible because there are no enemies to fight. 

I always thought war was the result of conflict over politics, resources and religion. Turns out, it’s just bad people being grumpy, on a global scale. And we can make them less grumpy, by simply willing it. The most vexing problems in human history, solved, by partying with your hippie pals (pictured)!

On second thought, don’t sell your Raytheon stock. And let’s keep patrolling those Afghan villages, just in case the meditation doesn’t pan out.

    How bout we send ALL of them over to A’stan. Umm, preferably to Helmand and see how that works out for them then…

    Positive thinking my arse!

    “Individuals engage in a simple process of Transcendental Meditation and advanced techniques in a large group setting. Research shows these methods enhance orderly thinking through increased coherence of brain function. In turn, these physiological changes impact surrounding social events much in the same manner as electronic impulses in a radio tower emanate radio waves for hundreds of miles. Scientists call this a “field effect.”"

    Hahahahahahaha.

    There is a point buried in all the tiny print, its not about IEDs or Drones or stuff… It IS about people. Doctrines and tactics that get too caught up in shiny toys tend to lose sight of whys of the (very) human being actually waging war

    Wait, so wearing a tinfoil hat will become a legitimate piece of guerrilla equipment? I am picturing it right now: man-dress, long beard, ak47, and tinfoil hat.

    Having grown up in Iowa and attended higher education at a respected university (Iowa State University), I can tell you that if something kooky comes out from Fairfield, Iowa, it’ll be connected to the Maharishi School of Management- a school/religion set up by the Maharishi guru that gave advise to the Beatles.

  6. The author is right, the whole idea sounds whacky, but if you look into it more deeply, you’ll see the published research and begin to think hey maybe we could experiment with it a bit. Everyone knows that violence and war sure don’t create peace.

    “All truth passes through three stages.
    First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed.
    Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.”
    – Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860)

  7. Dr. Jean Tobin says:

    There was a time in the history of the US Military where the debate was whether to invest money in developing what was then the new “radio” technology to send messages or to continue using homing pigeons to send messages. Most of the people involved at the time could not imagine that this new “radio” technology could really work–the idea of being able to send messages thru the “air” that could be received and understood at the other end seemed to be an impractical dream. And so, the decision was made not to invest in the new “radio technology” but to continue to fund homing pigeons. Of course, later they saw the absurd error of their decision. We are at a similar crossroads today. Research has already overwhelmingly validated the Invincible Defense Technology. It is negligent not to implement it.

    I agree with the last two comments.I think conventional methods have not worked and it’s about time someone came up with something new! The old way does not work, war does not generate peace or a better future for humanity. I have been learned Transcendental Meditation and I know first hand about the coherence it generates. I’d rather put my money on a technology of peace.

    Great article about a very interesting new approach to creating peace. And so well researched, It seems an unusual method, but it seems to work.
