On 15 November 2004 The Eagle reported:
Famed film director, David Lynch, and renowned physicist, Dr John Hagelin, spoke on the value of Maharishi's Transcendental Meditation Programme at a recent event entitled 'Creating Peace' held at American University in Washington, DC.
It is a joy for Global Good News service to feature this news, which indicates the success of the life-supporting programmes Maharishi has designed to bring
fulfilment to the field of world peace.
The Eagle is the campus newspaper for American University and reporter Fersko quotes from his online research at www.tm.org, 'Transcendental Meditation is a relaxation technique designed to enliven an individual's creativity, dynamism, orderliness, and organizing power, which results in increasing effectiveness and success in daily life.'
The article goes on to explain why—after practicing for more than 30 years—Lynch decided to go public and speak as a proponent of world peace, about the value of TM and the teachings of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. He was motivated after 'Maharishi announced he could compile peace experts and engineers to implement his new technologies on peace—and that this could come into being within the next week.'
Lynch has joined forces with Dr Hagelin who was educated at Dartmouth and Harvard and is a noted physicist who specializes in the teachings of Unified Field Theory, in which all matter is uniform.
Hagelin told the reporter, 'I came to [Transcendental Meditation] as a tool for peace through physics, specifically the realm of the Unified Field. When an individual meditates, human awareness systematically expands at the basis of mind and matter.'
At the event, co-sponsored by the Society for Peace and Conflict Resolution, Hagelin spoke first to the packed audience, citing that 'the first stage in war—rising tensions over competing factions all over the world—is creating an epidemic of stress.'
Hagelin and Lynch extolled the Transcendental Meditation Programme for its ability to ease tensions within individuals as well as within and between groups. Reduction of those tensions will facilitate achieving world peace.
They intend to raise $1 billion (half the cost of a B-2 bomber) for a national university whose exclusive goal will be to find innovations in the science of peace. Championing the cause of a university founded on the prospect of creating peace has become a crucial mission in the lives of both Lynch and Hagelin.
Every day Global Good News documents the rise of a better quality of life dawning in the world and highlights the need for introducing Natural Law based—Total
Knowledge based—programmes to bring the support of Nature to every individual, raise the quality of life of every society, and create a lasting state of world peace.
