[dropcap]T[/dropcap]he military of any country can prevent terrorism by deploying a proven, advanced human resource-based military technology. Invincible Defense Technology (IDT) is a statistically-validated approach.
Military field tests and 23 peer-reviewed studies show it quickly, effectively, and efficiently ends turmoil. This IDT approach to reducing stress and violence has been implemented by militaries. Experience shows that when IDT is used, defense is not based on guesswork, and lives are not risked.
Specially trained IDT Prevention Wings of the Military reduce national and cross-border collective stress. A palpable influence of peace permeates the surrounding environment. Reduced stress is marked by such statistics as reduced: conflict, terrorism, crime rate, accidents, hospital admissions, and infant mortality.
The IDT daily routine of the meditating warriors include the practice of the non-religious Transcendental Meditation technique and its advanced programs. As a societal coherence-creating military unit, they practice these programs twice a day, seven days a week, preferably in a secure location near targeted populations.
A global-scale study published in the Journal of Offender Rehabilitation documented a 72 percent drop in international terrorism and international conflict dropped 32 percent when IDT groups were large enough to affect the global population.
During wartime, such coherence-creating groups have benefitted societies. The statistical research methods used preclude chance or coincidence. IDT works extremely well. In an experiment published in the respected Journal of Conflict Resolution, war intensity in Lebanon dropped 45% within 48 hours.
A follow-up study in the Journal of Social Behavior and Personality was used to assess the impact of seven large IDT assemblies held at varying distances from Lebanon in the mid 1980’s. Cooperation among antagonists rose by 66%, war intensity fell 48%, war fatalities fell 71%, and war injuries fell 68%.
IDT groups functioning during peacetime can also act to prevent future conflicts from arising.
