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.
