The Unified Field
Progress in theoretical physics during the past quarter century has led to a progressively more unified understanding of the laws of nature, culminating in the recent discovery of completely unified field theories based on the superstring. These theories locate a single, universal, unified field of intelligence at the basis of all forms and phenomena in the universe. Millions of times more fundamental and more powerful than the nuclear force, the unified field is the ultimate source of the order displayed throughout the vast universe.
The new science and technology of peace constitutes a direct technological application of the unified field. Because it works at the deepest, most powerful level of natural law,* it can easily overpower—and effectively disarm—conventional technologies of defense based on the electronic, chemical, biological, or nuclear levels.
Theoretical and empirical investigation reveals that the unified field is fundamentally a field of consciousness. The fundamental qualities of the unified field—intelligence, dynamism, and self-awareness (i.e., “self-referral,” the non-Abelian property of self-interaction)—are the defining characteristics of consciousness.
Extensive published research further demonstrates that human consciousness can directly access and experience the unified field in the most expanded state of human awareness. This experience of the unified field—known as “pure consciousness”—constitutes a fourth major state of human consciousness, physiologically and subjectively distinct from waking, dreaming, and deep sleep. This experience is marked by the onset of global EEG coherence and increased alpha power, indicating optimum utilization of the total brain.
This fourth state of consciousness is universally accessible through specific, highly developed technologies of consciousness derived from the Vedic tradition of India by His Holiness Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. These technologies include the Transcendental Meditation program and advanced techniques—the most widely practiced and extensively researched technologies in the world for the full development of human potential.

The experience of the unified field within—the field of absolute peace—enlivens peace and unity in individual awareness. And according to extensive research, a few thousand individuals practicing these technologies together powerfully enliven peace throughout society—defusing acute societal tensions and neutralizing the root cause of social violence and war.
From the perspective of physics, such groups of trained, peace-creating experts collectively accessing and stimulating the unified field generate powerful waves of unity and coherence that permeate the collective consciousness of the whole population. The immediate, practical result is markedly reduced crime and social violence, and improved positive trends throughout society.
It is very fortunate that, in this scientific age, the scientific method affords a rigorous and reliable means of gaining knowledge—which combines the precise, mathematical formulation of scientific principles with objective, empirical means of scientific validation. Much credit goes to the scientific method, which has brought out this new science and technology of peace on a highly practical, reliable, scientific basis.
* The Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle states that a system’s intrinsic energy is proportional to its characteristic frequency: .
As a consequence, for example, nuclear processes, with their characteristic frequency (where rp is the proton radius), energetically overwhelm chemical processes, whose characteristic frequencies are vastly smaller: (where rm is a typical molecular dimension).
Hence, even if a molecular structure appears impregnable, such as a crystalline lattice of ammonium iodide, this structure can be shattered instantly by a nuclear event, e.g., the radioactive decay of an iodine nucleus embedded within the chemical lattice.
Similarly, a seemingly impregnable nuclear structure, such as an oxygen nucleus, is easily shattered when a constituent nucleon explodes through a grand-unified lepto-quark transition, e.g.,
These examples illustrate that more fundamental levels of natural law are vastly more powerful.
The scale of superunification (the level of the unified field) is the ultimate time and distance scale—scale of quantum gravity, the Planck scale (10-33 cm)—the dynamical origin of space and time. Because this scale is millions of times smaller than the atomic nucleus, the Uncertainty Principle guarantees that it is correspondingly millions of times more powerful. The unified field can therefore easily overpower any previous level of scientific technology—chemical, electronic, biological, or nuclear.
