An article published by The Business Recorder (“Indian Occupied Kashmir: President urges India to lift lockdown, other curbs,” 06 August 2020) reports President Arif Alvi asserting “We showed the world that Pakistan’s security is invincible. No one can harm Pakistan. At the same time, we showed that we want peace.”

Invincibility is a commendable goal – but can any weapons systems really provide a secure invincible defense shield? We applaud President Arif Alvi’s desire for peace; however Pakistan still faces daunting challenges to its internal and external security. “Invincible” means “incapable of being defeated.” Throughout time, great warriors have strived to achieve invincibility, without success. History shows that adversaries inevitably devise methods to counter security, and no doubt they will do the same in Pakistan. The only way to be truly invincible is to not have any enemies.

There is a science-based approach which can prevent enemies from arising. By preventing the birth of enemies it would protect Pakistan from both internal and external threats and in the process create a real lasting peace. This approach, Invincible Defense Technology (IDT), assures invincibility, peace and even economic progress, to the nations and militaries that employ it.

Invincible Defense Technology (IDT), a Proven, State-of-the-Art, Non-violent Alternative

The precarious situation in Pakistan could be rapidly reduced if its military, or any other organization, implements the proven advanced military IDT solution. The IDT approach has its basis in a radically new preventive model which has been thoroughly field-tested in numerous world battlegrounds. IDT is further validated by 23 peer-reviewed studies carried out in both developed and developing nations. When large assemblies of civilian IDT experts gathered during the years 1983 – 1985, international conflict decreased 32%, terrorism-related casualties decreased 72%, and overall violence was reduced in nations without intrusion by other governments. This coherence-creating effect has been documented on a global scale in a study published in the Journal of Offender Rehabilitation. http://davidleffler.com/2011/sapratableii/#b43

IDT, totally unlike any other defense technology, does not use violence in an attempt to quell violence. It is a more civilized approach, one especially worthy of nations that abhor violence as a means to power. IDT uniquely goes to the root cause of violence – the built-up stress in the individual and collective consciousness. Scientists have evidence that high levels of collective societal stress are the underlying cause of war, violence, crime and terrorism. When the IDT methodology is applied, stress levels throughout the population are rapidly reduced.

In an environment of lowered stress even staunch adversaries find ways to cooperate and overcome long-standing differences.

IDT uniquely neutralizes the underlying power base of contending groups, which produces the stressors, frustration and civil dissatisfaction that prevails in the general population. By eliminating the root cause of insurgency, violent outbreaks are pre-empted and prevented. IDT is effective because it gets to the heart of the matter. Terrorism often thrives in nations in which decades or even centuries of under-employment, poverty, and hunger have created a huge societal weight of stress, frustration and endemic unhappiness. This inevitably finds expression in acts of civil unrest, social violence, terrorism, and a downward spiral of economic degradation.

A specially trained military unit, an “IDT Prevention Wing of the Military,” uses IDT to reduce stress in the national collective consciousness. With proper social distancing IDT could also be introduced into other large groups such as the police forces, or militias. As the stress and frustration ease, the population is more capable of finding orderly and constructive solutions to their problems. Experience with IDT in other war-torn nations demonstrated increases in economic incentive and growth.

Entrepreneurship and individual creativity also increased. With increased civic calm, people’s aspirations are raised and a more productive and balanced society emerges. Such a society abhors violence as a means for change or as an expression of discontent. With this, the ground for terrorism is eliminated. What is more fascinating, this change takes place within a few days or weeks after IDT is introduced. The changes are measurable from such statistics as crime rates, accidents, hospital admissions, infant mortality, etc.

Rapid Transformation Through IDT

The daily routine for the IDT police/military personnel includes the practice of the Transcendental Meditation® (TM) technique, which is a non-religious, non-sectarian mental procedure, associated by scientific research with increased brain integration, increased intelligence, creativity, and learning ability, and decreased personal anxiety, stress and tension. Added to this practice, to increase the power of the peaceful influence is the more advanced procedure, the TM-Sidhi program. As a societal, coherence-creating military unit, they practice these procedures twice a day, seven days a week, preferably in a secure location near the targeted population. These practices have a beneficial effect on the collective consciousness of all who are in their proximity.

Such coherence-creating groups have achieved positive benefits in society within a short period of time, shown statistically. Modern statistical methods used in this research show a low probability of any explanation other than a causal influence of the technology. The IDT approach has been used during wartime resulting in the reduction of fighting, a decreased number of deaths and casualties, and an improvement in progress toward resolving the conflict peacefully. The war in Lebanon in 1983 was dramatically impacted in a peaceful way by an IDT Intervention Group. A thoroughly documented study of this phenomenon was published in the Journal of Conflict Resolution, and summaries of follow-up studies were published in the Journal of Social Behavior and Personality and the Journal of Scientific Exploration.

For those who remain skeptical, we recommend the following new book: An Antidote to Violence: Evaluating the Evidence (https://anantidotetoviolence.org), by Barry Spivack and Patricia Anne Saunders which details in depth the scientific research supporting this approach.


IDT works by utilizing our natural human brain mechanics, the most powerful natural resource possessed by every individual in every nation on earth. The beneficial transformational effects of IDT have been statistically proven numerous times to decrease and prevent violence and terrorism, and boost the economy.

IDT defense technology supersedes all other known defense technologies (which are based on electronic, chemical, and/or nuclear forces). These old, fear-based modalities are ultimately self-destructive for any nation, and for the human race as a whole, and must be replaced with IDT. So far, IDT is the only known and proven constructive approach.

Militaries deploying this powerful, human-resource-based technology disallow negative trends and prevent enemies from arising within or outside the countries, thereby eliminating all enemies before they arise. No enemies means no insurgency, terrorism and war.

The Time for Action is Now

IDT is the twenty-first century’s leading-edge defense system. If Pakistan establishes a cost effective IDT Prevention Wing, it will ease high tensions, reverse years of mistrust, crush hatred, create stability and permanently prevent unrest, war and terrorism. Extensive scientific research objectively says, “Yes, this system works. Why not use it?” Time is running out. President Arif Alvi should act now to create a Pakistani Prevention Wing of the Military, before Pakistan’s perilous situation worsens.

Brain-Based Technology Could End the Immigration Crisis – Nov/Dec 2018 issue of The American’s Bulletin

Posted on December 29th, 2018

Published in the Nov/Dec 2018 issue of The American’s Bulletin

By Arlene Schar and Dr. David Leffler

It is not necessary for President Trump to “shut down” the US government or close down the Southern US Border to obtain ideal border security. A scientific, field-tested solution to the immigration crisis already exists. It is cheaper, more effective, and more humane than building a wall and incarcerating immigrants. This solution, if successfully implemented, would elevate President Trump to the status of a great humanitarian and brilliant leader capable of solving seemingly unsolvable problems, should he embark on this course of action.

This approach is called Invincible Defense Technology (IDT). When properly applied, IDT neutralizes the collective societal stress that fuels crime, violence, terrorism and war. In this way it creates a powerful and measurable influence of harmony and peace throughout society, defusing the social conditions that lead to conflict and danger within the population.

People flee their homelands because their living conditions are intolerable and often life-threatening. If instead they were experiencing peace and prosperity, they would have no reason to flee. President Trump as our Commander-in-Chief could make use of the IDT approach to end the immigration crisis once and for all, in a way that is humane and beneficial to everyone involved.

The practical components of IDT are the non-religious Transcendental Meditation (TM) and the advanced TM-Sidhi programs. When large groups of experts practice these programs together, the powerful field effect of coherence and peace they generate spills over into the surrounding population, as extensive scientific research has shown. Many published, peer-reviewed research studies have repeatedly confirmed measurable decreases in war, terrorism, and crime, as well as improvements in quality of life such as reduced accidents, hospital admissions, and infant mortality–all tangible signs of reduction of societal stress.

In highly stressed areas of the globe, the establishment of large groups of IDT experts has also led to increased prosperity and economic growth, including a decrease in the misery index and significant increase in competitive growth. These positive changes in social trends have occurred concomitant with IDT.

Militaries in South America and Africa are actively field-testing this approach by creating Prevention Wings of the Military, using IDT to reduce crime, quell violence, create prosperity, prevent the rise of enemies, and create the conditions for lasting peace.

President Trump’s effort to create a separate Space Force branch of the US military is an ambitious goal. However, if President Trump were to create an elite IDT Prevention Wing, this brain-based system of defense would be more powerful than any approaches utilizing conventional weaponry.

By establishing a Prevention Wing capable of not only eliminating the immigration crisis but also capable of creating the conditions leading to lasting world peace, President Trump would assuredly go down in history as the greatest president ever to serve our country, perhaps even to be honored with the Nobel Peace Prize.

For less than the cost of a few modern fighter jets, our military can train 15,000 warriors in this advanced IDT approach. Once trained, this elite force would begin to defuse tensions in stressful locations worldwide. With 15,000 trained troops practicing the IDT approach as a group twice a day, deployed either at sea or on land, the societal conditions in these troubled countries will immediately improve. As the collective consciousness of the populations rises through the influence of greater harmony and peace, those who have engaged in violence will no longer do so, and better solutions will occur to the people and their leaders for improving their own living conditions. Studies have shown repeatedly that this method works–and will continue to work as long as the peace-creating group is maintained.

Given everything we have tried which has not worked, and everything we have tried which has been inhumane, it is certainly worth giving this approach a try, especially in light of its track record for success. It is simple, successful, and cost-effective, and has the potential to position the USA as the world leader of this cutting-edge technology. With IDT President Trump would not only make America great once again, but truly make America even greater than before!

South American leaders have realized that, even if they could afford to finance a strong technologically superior military and police, they still would suffer from crime, terrorism, war, and casualties. They have instead chosen to adopt the IDT model whereby their military becomes not only strong, with more resilient and focused troops, but also more invincible by abating the collective social stresses responsible for crime, war, and terrorism. With IDT the stress cycle is broken by eliminating societal stresses, which in turn eliminates all enemies. It is in this sense that we can say their military becomes invincible: it no longer has an enemy it has to fight. No enemy means no war and no terrorism and reduced crime. A quantitative advantage is gained when a military deploys large numbers of IDT experts. The field effect thus produced provides a strategic advantage in protecting their nation. And, if the group is large enough, this advantage also benefits nearby nations since the larger field effect calms tensions in their countries as well, protecting everyone from potential adversaries.

Президент Путин – Нет врагов = Нет ядерной войны (Attn: President Putin – No Enemies = No Nuclear War)

Posted on June 3rd, 2018

Дэвид Леффлер           

Президент России Владимир Путин в своем ежегодном выступлении в Москве заявил, что у его военных есть новая межконтинентальная крылатая ракета, которая “непобедима”. Справедливости ради скажем, что она действительно существует и что ее действительно невозможно остановить.

Во все времена ученые стремились достичь непобедимости, используя для этого все более и более передовые технологии. Но история показывает, что до сих пор эти поиски  были безуспешными. Противники в любом случае разрабатывают методы противодействия любой системе нападения или обороны. Даже сам президент Путин в своем выступлении признал, что если кто-то найдет обходной путь, “наши ребята придумают что-нибудь  новое”.

На случай, если президент Путин или президент Трамп, будут искать такой путь, скажем, что решение, которое может обеспечить безусловную несокрушимость и непобедимость каждой нации, уже существует.

Это решение  – результат совместных усилий социальной науки и квантовой теории Единого поля, а не  подходов, основанных на силе оружия или на политике.

Президент Путин мог бы сделать Россию непобедимой, если бы в составе его вооруженных сил был «Фланг предотвращения», то есть военные, обученные  оборонным технологиям и ставшие экспертами в области Технологии Несокрушимой Обороны. Проверенные на практике научные исследования показывают, что большие группы людей, которые дважды в день практикуют простую, нерелигиозную  технику, которая называется Трансцендентальная медитация (ТМ), а также углубленную программу ТМ-Сидхи, создают  полевой эффект, который оказывает значительное влияние на все их окружение. Военные всего мира проверили этот подход на практике и сегодня широко его используют.

Название «Технология Несокрушимой  Обороны» (ТНО), относящееся к этой мощной технологии, основанной на упорядоченной работе мозга, можно считать очень  удачным. Слово Несокрушимый означает отсутствие   возможности быть побежденным. Оборона означает защиту и охрану. Технология – это научные знания прикладного характера.

Цель ТНОпредотвратить появление врагов.

Как только ТНО будет должным образом применена, российские военные станут непобедимыми, потому что не будет врагов, с которыми надо бороться. Отсутствие врагов означает, что нет никаких войн, никакого терроризма, никаких ядерных войн. Это означает полную  безопасность и счастливую, плодотворную жизнь для  всех людей.

Обширные научные исследования, прошедшие проверку независимым рецензированием, наряду с проверкой в местах военных действий по всему миру показывают, что использование ТНО снижает уровень коллективного стресса в обществе, в результате чего снижается количество войн, террористических актов, снижается и уровень преступности, а также улучшается качество жизни. Эти изменения были не только продемонстрированы, но и статистически измерены  по таким показателям как сокращение масштабов терроризма и вооруженных конфликтов, преступности, несчастных случаев, госпитализации и детской смертности. (См.: Lt. Gen. Clarence E. McKnight (Retired, US Army), Dr. David Leffler, Duncan Brown, Dr. Carla Brown, and Arlene J. Schar (1 August 2017). Preventive Defense as the Ultimate Game Changer. Indian Defence Review.)

Кроме этого создание больших групп экспертов в области ТНО способствовало росту благосостояния и  инициативности в сфере экономики в особо напряженных районах земного шара. Креативность и предприимчивость также возросли. Кроме того, когда в период с 1983 по 1985 год создавались большие группы гражданских экспертов, во всем мире потери, связанные с терроризмом, снизились на 72 процента, а международные конфликты сократились на 32 процента. Позитивные изменения в социальных тенденциях произошли сразу же после внедрения ТНО. (For a research summary see: A New Role for the Military: Preventing Enemies from Arising-Reviving an Ancient Approach to Peace. Journal of Management & Social Science (JMSS), (Fall 2009), Vol. 5, No. 2., pp. 153-162.)

Подход ТНО был использован в военное время, что привело к сокращению боевых действий, уровня смертельных исходов и несчастных случаев. А также к улучшению процесса урегулирования конфликта мирными средствами. Кардинальное отличие ТНО от любого другого подхода к защите заключается в том, что в попытке подавить насилие эта технология не использует насилие.

В конечном счете, врагов с любой стране создает высокий уровень стресса. Если опасный уровень коллективного стресса будет снижен путем применения ТНО, лидеры получат возможность находить более упорядоченные и конструктивные решения неразрешимых вопросов, которые явились причиной разногласий  для многих поколений.

При наличии более спокойной ситуации в обществе, устремления и чаяния граждан поднимутся на новый более высокий уровень, и появится более плодотворное и более сбалансированное общество. И тогда насилие как средство достижения перемен и/или выражения недовольства, естественным образом ослабнет.

ТНО – это проверенный способ, который позволит российским военным защитить себя и завоевать уважение мирового сообщества, применив на практике простую, недорогую систему обороны, для реализации которой требуется минимальная подготовка. До сих пор ни одна страна не нашла способ решить свои проблемы без использования этого подхода. Как только враг становится другом, нет необходимости сражаться. Разногласия могут быть урегулированы мирной дипломатией.

Недавние события во всем мире показывают, что ТНО крайне необходима. Эта технология работает быстро, и нет лучшего решения для предотвращения ядерной войны. Президенту Путину было бы разумно немедленно осуществить эту программу, превратив тем самым своих врагов в союзников и создав через это прочный мир.

Attn: President Putin – No Enemies = No Nuclear War

By Dr. David Leffler

Russian President Vladimir Putin asserted in his annual speech, delivered on in Moscow, that his military has a new intercontinental cruise missile that is “Invincible.” For the sake of argument, lets say that it really exists and that it is really unstoppable.

Throughout time, scientists have sought to achieve invincibility by applying ever-advancing technologies. History shows they have so far been unsuccessful. Adversaries inevitably devise methods to counter any system of offense or defense. Even President Putin admitted in his speech that if anyone found a workaround, “our boys will think of something new.”

However, if President Putin, or for that matter President Trump, were to seek it, there is a solution to achieve unquestioned invincibility for their nation. The method comes from the union of social science and quantum unified field theory–not from approaches utilizing weaponry, and not from the field of politics.

President Putin could obtain invincibility for Russia if his armed forces were trained to form a Prevention Wing of the Military, comprised of Invincible Defense Technology experts. Field tested scientific studies show that large groups practicing the non-religious Transcendental Meditation® (TM) and the advanced TM-Sidhi® programs in a group twice a day generate a field effect that profoundly influences all within its vicinity. Militaries worldwide have field-tested this approach and are deploying it today.

The powerful, brain-based, Invincible Defense Technology (IDT) is aptly named. The word invincible means incapable of being defeated, unconquerable. Defense means to defend and to protect. Technology is applied scientific knowledge. The goal of IDT is to prevent enemies from arising. Once IDT is properly applied, Russia’s military would become invincible because there would be no enemies to fight. No enemies means no war, no terrorism, no nuclear war and full security, as well as happy and productive lives for everyone.

Extensive peer-reviewed research and military field-tests worldwide show that IDT brings about measurable decreases in war, terrorism, and crime, as well as improvements in quality of life, all of which are tangible signs of reduction of societal stress. These changes have been demonstrated statistically using measures such as reductions of terrorism and armed conflict, crime rates, accidents, hospital admissions, and infant mortality. (See: Lt. Gen. Clarence E. McKnight (Retired, US Army), Dr. David Leffler, Duncan Brown, Dr. Carla Brown, and Arlene J. Schar (1 August 2017). Preventive Defense as the Ultimate Game ChangerIndian Defence Review.)

In highly stressed arhttp://web.archive.org/web/20180615204302/http://www.indiandefencereview.com/external-news/?news_id=3563eas of the globe, establishment of large groups of IDT experts have also increased growth of prosperity and economic incentives. Creativity and entrepreneurship increase as well. Also, on a global scale, when large groups of civilian experts gathered from 1983 to 1985, terrorism-related casualties decreased 72 percent and international conflict decreased 32 percent. These positive changes in social trends have taken place immediately after IDT was introduced. (For a research summary see: A New Role for the Military: Preventing Enemies from Arising-Reviving an Ancient Approach to PeaceJournal of Management & Social Science (JMSS), (Fall 2009), Vol. 5, No. 2., pp. 153-162.)

The IDT approach has been used during wartime, resulting in reduced fighting, reduced war deaths, and reduced casualties, as well as improved progress toward resolving the conflict through peaceful means. IDT is totally unlike any other defense approach in that it does not use violence in an attempt to quell violence.

High stress levels within any nation ultimately create enemies. If dangerous levels of collective stress are reduced by applying IDT, then leaders will be more capable of finding orderly and constructive solutions to irresolute issues that have kept them at odds for generations.

With greater civic calm, citizens’ aspirations will rise, and a more productive, more balanced society will emerge. Then violence as a means for change and/or as an expression of discontent will naturally subside.

IDT is a proven way for Russia’s military to protect itself and to gain global respect by deploying a simple, low cost, defense system, with minimal training needed to implement it. So far, no nation has found a way to work around it. Once an enemy becomes a friend, there is no need to fight. Differences can be settled through peaceful diplomacy.

Recent events worldwide show that IDT is desperately needed. It works quickly, and there is no better solution to prevent nuclear war. President Putin would be wise to immediately implement the program, thereby turning his enemies into allies, and creating lasting peace.
