AMERICA IS RISING
Group of 1500 Advanced Meditation Experts in Iowa
Is Creating Coherent National Consciousness
Wall Street Booms, Energy Prices Plummet 25%,
Unemployment Drops, Consumer Confidence Soars,
Hurricane Season Passes without a Whimper,
and Washington, D.C., Is Transformed
“This is just the beginning—with a permanent group of Yogic Flyers
in America, all good will continue to come to the nation”—Maharishi
Maharishi Mahesh Yogi proclaimed this week that his Invincible America Assembly, now in its seventeenth week at Maharishi University of Management and Maharishi Vedic City in Iowa, is quietly transforming the nation and raising the country to a permanent state of peace, prosperity, and invincibility.
Since the Assembly began on July 23, the Dow has soared to 17 all-time highs, consumer confidence is now at its best in almost five years, unemployment is at its lowest levels in five years, oil and gas prices have dropped 25%, inflation pressures have subsided, the feared hurricane season has passed without a whimper, and the political atmosphere of Washington has been completely transformed.
Rigorous statistical analysis shows that the upsurge of positive trends—publicly predicted in advance—started when a group of 1200 experts in the Transcendental Meditation program and its advanced techniques, including Yogic Flying, assembled in Iowa from across the U.S. and around the world to create coherent collective consciousness—the basis of the national transformation. (See www.invinciblity.org for preliminary research findings on the Invincible America Assembly.)
“We expected to hear good news coming from the Invincible Assembly—and now we are enjoying receiving it every day from the world press,” Maharishi said.
Maharishi emphasized that this national transformation is just beginning. “With this group of Yogic Flyers permanently established in America, all good will continue to come to the country—a bright new sunshine is dawning right now for America and the world.”
Extensive published scientific research documents the Maharishi Effect
Dr. John Hagelin, a world-renowned quantum physicist and director of the Invincible America Assembly, is leading a team of scientists and physicians who are monitoring the effects of the group practice on national economic, social, and even climatic trends. He said the positive developments created by the Assembly are consistent with prior studies.
“Extensive research published in leading, peer-reviewed scientific journals documents reduced negative trends, including reduced crime and violence, and improved economic and social trends—when as few as the square root of one percent of a population practice Yogic Flying together in a group,” Dr. Hagelin said.
Scientists named this phenomenon the “Maharishi Effect” after Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the renowned Vedic scholar who founded the Transcendental Meditation program, and who predicted the beneficial impact of group meditation on social trends as early as 1975.
Dr. Hagelin said research also indicates that the Invincible America Assembly dramatically reduced the number of predicted hurricanes this season.
“The ‘non-linear partial differential equations’ governing the weather obey the characteristics of chaos theory. As a consequence, weather patterns are sensitive to infinitesimal changes in initial conditions—a phenomenon popularly known as the ‘Butterfly Effect.’ Even minute changes in people’s behavior can precipitate—or prevent—a hurricane. The Invincible America Assembly is raising the quality of collective consciousness—and of behavior throughout society—to be more harmonious, more life supporting. And Nature is responding more positively,” Dr. Hagelin said.
Group of 2000 Yogic Flyers needed to make the nation invincible
Dr. Hagelin said that the number of Yogic Flyers in the Assembly recently increased from 1200 to 1500—further intensifying the positive effect for the nation. And when the number of Yogic Flyers reaches the square root of one percent of the U.S. population (about 2000), there will be an even more dramatic improvement in national trends, and any lingering problems in the country will be quickly resolved.
“This is not wishful thinking,” Dr. Hagelin said. “This is hard science that has been field tested for over 50 years and documented through more than 600 studies conducted at over 250 independent universities and research institutes throughout the world.”
Dr. Hagelin added that groups of Yogic Flyers are now being established in a total of 40 countries to create a “Ring of Invincibility” around the globe and quickly raise the whole world to a state of permanent peace.
The Invincible America Assembly is being funded by an annual $12 million grant from the Howard and Alice Settle Foundation for an Invincible America.
