Since 2000 African publications have published hundreds of articles about a non-lethal technology which the African militaries could deploy to bring lasting peace. More importantly, when properly deployed in Africa it would also prevent future war and terrorism worldwide. This new technology, backed by extensive peer-reviewed research and battle field-tested by civilians and militaries, is not secret nor classified. More importantly this technology could be easily and rapidly deployed by any African military: to operate it globally on full operational status would take roughly 8-9 months, and the cost would likely be less than that of 2-3 modern fighter jets.
This new brain-based technology is called Invincible Defense Technology (IDT). Invincible Defense Technology is an aptly named approach. 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.
The powerful, brain-based IDT involves large groups practicing the non-religious Transcendental Meditation® (TM) and the advanced TM techniques in order to harness group brain power to create a coherent field effect that influences all within its proximity. By elevating collective consciousness, people within the field effect are able to work together to find solutions to otherwise insolvable problems leading to war. An online lecture “An Important Message for All Military Leaders” by John Hagelin, a Harvard-trained Ph.D. physicist (see: https://www.gusp.org/directors/), explains in more detail how this works.
IDT is backed by 19 peer-reviewed studies published in reputable journals listed in an article titled: “A Humane Approach Towards Peace” head-authored by Lt. Gen. Clarence E. McKnight Jr. (U.S. Army, Ret.). The article teaser states: “The first nation to permanently deploy a Preventative Wing of the Military (consisting of 10,000 – 15,000 military personnel practicing IDT twice a day) could actually become the catalyst for creating lasting world peace. The leader of such a group would likely achieve great fame and the Nobel Peace Prize for applying this human resource-based, non-lethal, and non-destructive approach” to end war in our lifetimes.
IDT is currently in various stages of deployment worldwide; however, none are yet fully operational on a global scale: see Google search on “New Solution for Latin America: Transforming Lives and Changing Nations” and a short online video “Creating Peace in Ukraine on Vimeo“).
Colonel (Dr.) Brian Rees (US Army retired), an Afghanistan and Iraq war veteran and 2007 graduate of the US Army War College (USAWC), has carefully studied this approach in his USAWC Program Research Paper entitled “The Application of Strategic Stress Management in Winning the Peace.” The peer-reviewed studies cited in Col. Rees’s paper are based on the consistent, reliable results of this new approach to bring peace to worn-torn areas of our planet. The Sentinel a local newspaper in the hometown of the USAWC recently published this IDT article “Time for a new approach.”
Despite the abundant peer-reviewed research and actual field-tests by militaries, why has Dr. Singh at the Africa Studies Group at the U.S. Naval War College (NWC) not urged its implementation? Likely for the same reason that Major General John S. Kem, U.S. Army Commandant, U.S. Army War College has not. This 1921 quote by the late US Admiral William Sims probably suggests the main reason: “Ever since men first began to use weapons to fight each other, military men have been reproached for excessive conservatism, a polite term often intended to imply a dangerous class reluctance to accept new ideas.”
As an example, tanks were first used to follow-up after the infantry rather than to lead, because military leaders were initially afraid to use this new technology. They only reluctantly agreed to deploy tanks with the tactics they were accustomed to. American military leader Dwight Eisenhower, soon after WWI was threatened with court-martial by the Chief of Infantry. His offense? Advocating revolutionary new ways to deploy tanks. In his Infantry Journal article, Eisenhower pioneered what is now called a Revolution in Military Affairs (RMA).
The late US Admiral Hyman G. Rickover, US Navy who led an RMA of his time said: “Good ideas are not adopted automatically. They must be driven into practice with courageous patience.” Unfortunately “conservatism” still exists today especially at the premier war colleges such as the U.S. Naval War College (NWC). For example, bombing has been one of the primary war strategies used in conflicts for decades. Can warrior scholars at NWC cite any peer-reviewed published studies to indicate that bombing is an effective strategy leading to lasting peace? The only study that I am aware of involved the strategic-bombing review conducted shortly after World War II. It showed that the bombing of Germany was ineffective.
NWC asserts “The War College is a place of original research on all questions relating to war and to statesmanship connected with war, or the prevention of war.” It will be interesting to see if they live up to this motto. The US Army War College should be given credit for the previously mentioned Program Research Paper about IDT that published in 2007. Despite this pioneering effort to date the US military has not deployed IDT on a global level.
Because the United States military lags behind, this presents an opportunity for any brave African military leader to seize the initiative to make history and create the first military to deploy IDT globally. At this time, when terrorist attacks and perhaps full-scale conflict may happen at any time, preventing enemies from arising with IDT is an idea whose time has come. Whatever African leader has the courage and patience to ignore the norm by quickly deploying IDT on a global level – this astute leader will begin to create lasting world peace and be rightfully in line to collect a Nobel Peace Prize.
