When used in a military context, these meditation practices are known as Invincible Defense Technology (IDT).
The research paper describes the concept of a “Prevention Wing of the Military,” a group of military personnel that practices the advanced TM-Sidhi programme twice daily as a group.
A group that reaches a critical threshold in size has been scientifically shown to reduce collective societal stress.
The paper hypothesizes that war, terrorism, and crime are caused by collective societal stress.
The absence of collective stress translates into the absence of tension between countries, between religious groups, or even within individual terrorists.
The paper proposes that, by applying this non-lethal and non-destructive technology, any military can reduce societal stress and prevent enemies from arising.
If IDT prevents the emergence of enemies, the military has no one to fight, so the nation becomes invincible.
Over 50 scientific studies have found that when 1percent of a given population practices Transcendental Meditation, or when sufficiently large groups practice the TM-Sidhi programme together twice daily, measurable positive changes take place throughout society as a whole.
The studies show decreased violence, crime, car accidents, and suicides, and improved quality of life in society.
The paper reviews IDT research, such as a study published in the Yale University-edited Journal of Conflict Resolution showing that an intervention by a civilian group in Israel resulted in a 76 per cent reduction in war deaths in neighbouring Lebanon.
Seven subsequent, consecutive experiments over a two-year period during the peak of the Lebanon war found that war-related fatalities decreased by 71 per cent, war-related injuries fell by 68 per cent, the level of conflict dropped by 48 per cent, and cooperation among antagonists increased by 66 per cent.
