International Group of Scientists Offers Proven Solution to Global Conflict
18 November 2023 - An Open Letter to the President of the United States and All World Leaders appeared on Friday, 3 November, as a full-page advertisement on page A9 of The Wall Street Journal. The Global Union of Scientists for Peace offered 'a proven technology for peace, security, and a swift resolution of conflict' in Ukraine, the Middle East, and elsewhere in the world. Dr. Tony Nader, Chairman, said this innovative solution would 'cost less than one day of war'. '[It] is based in the most fundamental value of life: consciousness. Research has found that small groups practicing the Transcendental Meditation and advanced TM-Sidhi program together create a coherence effect that significantly reduces violence, crime, and war. This technology of consciousness has been confirmed in 56 empirical studies, 28 of which have been published in peer-reviewed scholarly journals. From research over 40 years, we can say definitively: this solution works. ... It can be tried even while the fighting is still going on. Our world cannot afford to wait.' Dr. Nader invited 'well-wishers [to] now step forward to permanently establish these groups. I invite all angel philanthropists to immediately create permanent world peace.' (more)
