The Voice of the Cape’s after five Drivetime Show has a national and international flavor focusing on issues making news where the biggest story of the day or week is analyzed. South African host Shafiq Morton interviewed American Dr. David Leffler this week, Wednesday, Feb. 19, 2014, on a unique solution to the growing violence in Kiev.
David R. Leffler, Ph.D. is the Executive Director of the Center for Advanced Military Science (CAMS) at the Institute of Science, Technology and Public Policy, in Fairfield, Iowa, USA. He spoke on IDT, Invincible Defense Technology, as a viable solution to the rising crisis. Dr. Leffler explained how increasing stress levels erupt into opposing factions, violence and war, and how group practice of Transcendental Meditation and its advanced procedures can defuse such collective stress and prevent war, softening the atmosphere for people and groups to more harmoniously discuss solutions to their problems without resorting to violence.
I was so impressed by Morton’s questions and responses to Leffler’s informative answers, I posted this comment:
When Marconi said we could communicate through the airwaves they thought he was crazy. He was just using a technology that was able to take advantage of the electromagnetic field that was already there. Invincible Defense Technology similarly uses an advanced procedure to allow our minds to collectively enliven the all-powerful, all-nourishing Unified Field, the source of all the force and matter fields, the home of all the laws of nature, for the good of society, and the world, depending on the size of the group. Thank you for exposing your listeners to this hopeful and intelligent out-of-the-box proven approach to creating world peace!
The editorial piece referred to in the interview was co-authored by Dr. Leffler and Dr. Mykola Didukh, National Director for TM in Ukraine. Titled, “Proven Strategy to Prevent Turmoil in Ukraine,” how Invincible Defense Technology could be implemented to solve the crisis, the Op-Ed was published earlier this month in a number of locations: NEPAL: Review Nepal; WORLD SERVICE: The Common Ills; UNITED STATES & CANADA: Times of Earth; INDONESIA: Sigma News; and UKRAINE: Evening Lugansk, which was also published in Russian and Ukrainian.
Effectiveness of the Transcendental Meditation Program
The latest volume of scientific research published on Transcendental Meditation and the Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme covers a wide range of results showing the effectiveness of the practice, from improved heart health to decreased war violence. In Volume 7 of Scientific Research on Maharishi’s Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhi Program: Collected Papers, Dr. Michael Dillbeck, International Research Professor at Maharishi University of Management and editor of the volume, says the studies were mainly conducted between 1997 and 2005. There are 81 fully reprinted studies from 116 different authors and 50 different universities in 12 countries.
Some select findings from these studies include:
— Reduced high blood pressure and atherosclerosis
— Reduced physician expenses and mortality
— Improved intellectual functioning and behaviour of students
— Growth of uniquely high levels of self-development
— Increased brain integration
— Growth of cosmic consciousness
— Reduced stress and increased leadership in business
— Long-term reduced recidivism in prisoners
— Decreased crime, war violence, and international conflict
All the studies are reprinted fully, so the original findings, data, and charts can be perused or shown to anyone. Dr. Dillbeck added that knowing of the research makes most people confident in Transcendental Meditation.
