A proven strategy to prevent turmoil in the DR Congo

War, conflict and terrorism are ultimately human problems requiring a human
solution. Experts in the field of conflict resolution maintain that their underlying
cause is accumulated “social stress” – i.e., mounting political, religious and/or
ethnic tensions between rival factions in critical hotspots throughout the world. As
social stress builds, divisions grow stronger, groups take sides, diplomats become
unable to resolve differences, and enemies arise within or outside the nation.
Military force may then be invoked to protect the country, resulting in terrorism,
armed conflict and 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 the DR Congo has an opportunity to overcome the cycle of war
and terrorism by deploying a scientifically verified technology of defense that
neutralizes social stress. This new technology is based on the unified field of all
the laws of nature – the most fundamental and powerful level of nature’s
functioning. The technology accesses and enlivens this unified field through
subjective technologies of consciousness, thereby creating a profound influence of
coherence and harmony throughout society that results in measurable reductions of
crime, terrorism, and war.

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. Militaries in Latin
America, Asia as well as African countries like Mozambique have already applied
these non-lethal and non-destructive technologies to reduce collective societal
stress and resulting conflict.

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, since 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 1983, a two-month Maharishi Effect intervention in Israel resulted in a 76%
reduction in war deaths in neighboring Lebanon (p < 10-7) when group size exceeded
the square root of 1% threshold (Journal of Conflict Resolution). Seven subsequent,
consecutive experiments over a two-year period during the peak of the Lebanon war

•        war-related fatalities decreased by 71% (p < 10-10)
•        war-related injuries fell by 68% (p < 10-6)
•        the level of conflict dropped by 48% (p < 10-8)
•        cooperation among antagonists increased by 66% (p < 10-6)

The likelihood that these combined results were due to chance is less than one part
in 10 to the nineteenth (Journal of Social Behavior and Personality). A global-scale
study published in the Journal of Offender Rehabilitation documented a 72% drop in
international terrorism.

The DR Congo military is responsible for defending its government and citizens. It
can now succeed in this mission simply by creating a Prevention Wing – a group of
IDT experts. The size of the Prevention Wing would be small – approximately the
square root of 1% of the population of the country. Only about 900 soldiers would be

As part of its responsibility to protect the nation, the military of the DR Congo is
obligated to thoroughly examine scientifically proven methods for preventing war and
terrorism. With the IDT approach, all that is necessary is to provide the proper
training for groups of military personnel – or indeed, any sizable group within the
nation. The DR Congo military has the opportunity today through IDT to create
national security, invincibility, and peace. But the time to act is now.

Major General (Ret.) Kulwant Singh, U.Y.S.M., Ph.D., leads an international group of
generals and defense experts that advocates Invincible Defense Technology. He was
awarded the Uttam Yudh Sewa Medal, the second highest decoration for senior officers
during operations in Sri Lanka as part of IPKF (Indian Peace Keeping Force).

David Leffler, Ph.D., is Executive Director of the Center for Advanced Military
Science (CAMS).   He served as an Associate of the Proteus Management Group at the Center for Strategic Leadership, US Army War College. Dr. Leffler is the author of “A New Role
for the Military: Preventing Enemies from Arising – Reviving an Ancient Approach to
Peace.” He is on Twitter.
