Dr John Hagelin offers $1 million to train 1,000 Republic of Korea soldiers in the brain-based approach to peace
Guarantees a permanent reduction of North-South hostilities within 60 days
Dr John Hagelin, a prominent US quantum physicist and president of the Global Union of Scientists for Peace (GUSP), and Capt. Ray Seebald (Ret.), a military aide to US Presidents Ronald Reagan and Bush, proposed during a series of meetings this week in Seoul, South Korea an innovative, yet proven new approach to peace on the Korean peninsula, which can defuse the hostilities and end the nuclear standoff between the North and the South within 60 days.
Moreover, Dr. Hagelin said GUSP will commit $1 million to begin the implementation of the approach.
Dr. Hagelin and Capt. Seebald outlined the ''Brain-Based Approach to Peace'' today during a news conference at the Foreign Correspondents Club, Seoul Press Center. Dr Hagelin will do so again on Friday, March 30, at 3 pm, during a meeting with brain scientists at the Korean Institute for Science and Technology.
Dr. Hagelin's news conference has come during the second Nuclear Security Summit (NSS) in Seoul on March 26–27.
Dr. Hagelin said the brain-based peace plan has been extensively field-tested—in the Middle East and in hotspots throughout the world—and is ready for implementation in South Korea. ''The consistent result has been dramatic reductions in terrorism, war, and social violence. These findings have been replicated, published in leading academic journals, and endorsed by hundreds of independent scientists and scholars. The efficacy of this approach is beyond question,'' Dr. Hagelin said.
Dr. Hagelin's Korean Peninsula Peace Plan calls for training 1,000 ROK (Republic of Korea) soldiers in scientifically proven, meditation-based technologies, which, he said, are ''an application of the most advanced discoveries in the fields of quantum mechanics, neuroscience, and human consciousness.''
Dr. Hagelin said traditional approaches to defense fail because they do not address the underlying cause of violence and conflict: they do not relieve the acute political, ethnic, and religious tensions that fuel terrorism and war.
''This new approach effectively defuses these deep-seated tensions on a national, regional and global scale, preventing the outbreak of armed conflict—whether conventional or nuclear,'' he said.
Dr. Hagelin said the $1 million pledge from GUSP will be used to train the 1,000 ROK soldiers. He also said GUSP will engage independent university neuroscientists and social scientists in Seoul to monitor the effectiveness of the approach.
And if the military is slow to respond? Dr. Hagelin said he will consider training other large groups in the nation to produce the same effect, such as university students, business professionals—even prison inmates or the unemployed.
''The Brain-Based Approach to Peace is practical and proven—and available for large-scale implementation now,'' Dr. Hagelin said. ''We can defuse the tension and prevent the conflict—we can end the prospect of war.''
The Global Union of Scientists for Peace, a coalition of Nobel laureates and leading scientists, was founded to avert the growing threat of nuclear proliferation and nuclear war and to promote safe, innovative, scientifically proven technologies for national security and global peace.
