Researcher Finds Plan For Middle East Peace In Modern Physics

There is a new paradigm in physics that can be applied to achieving peace in the Middle East, according to Stan Tenen, research director of the Meru Foundation, a non-profit research institute in Sharon, MA. This paradigm is called “superposition” and according to a plan formulated by Tenen, it is applicable to solving a primary obstacle between Israel and the Palestinians.

In physics, mathematics, and engineering, the superposition principle describes the overlapping of waves, and more generally provides a technique to solve linear systems. Tenen says, “In the 19th century world view, there was only room for a single winner. When one party got what they wanted, the other could not. By applying a new scientific paradigm there is enough room in reality for everyone to ‘win’ without the need for others to lose.”

He states that all of organic life contains an intrinsic need of connectivity although they may serve separate functions. “Our liver and pancreas are next to each other, but they have different functions and needs. Each has its own boundary, and there is a region of connective tissue and nutrients flowing between them. In physics and in organic life, we find a double border when two different regions or two different organs with different needs are adjacent.”

Tenen’s observations are based on a thirty-five year research study of geometric patterns rediscovered in the Hebrew text of Genesis. Using principles of physics and topology, he has developed what he calls a “geometric metaphor” that presents a mathematical view of the stories and parables in the bible. In fact, his Middle East plan emanates from a passage in Genesis.

“We find an application of the superposition theory in the politics in Genesis, where Jacob and Laban produce a double boundary to end their dispute. From Gen. 31:51-52 (Kaplan translation) Laban then said, ‘Here is the mound, and here is the pillar, that I have set up between us. The mound shall be a witness, and the pillar shall be a witness. I am not to go beyond the mound with bad intentions, and you are not to go beyond the mound and pillar.’ “

Tenen believes the idea of a double boundary is the key for peace. “In the Mideast, a double boundary can provide a double measure of security. At the same time the area between these boundaries can provide a peaceful corridor for travel and commerce, connecting separated Israeli settlements and Palestinian cities so they can interact freely with each other and with their own.”

Tenen claims that the principle of a double boundary can go beyond the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. However, he states, “This idea has a unique potential benefit in this region. Muslims are required to make the Hajj journey to Mecca at least once in their lives. Often, this entails travel over long distances at great expense. If the land between the U.N. Green Line and the new Israeli defensive fences were to become a zone of peace, it could also serve as a Hajj Road, to enable Muslims to more easily travel to Mecca and Medina. A double border could go a long way towards giving everyone what they want in the Middle East. But the principle is more general. The double border “Hajj Road” principle of international cooperation and inexpensive and easy travel would spur a social and economic boon in all adjacent nations who adopted it.”

Tenen is undoubtedly the leading authority on geometric metaphor in ancient texts and traditions and is currently presenting his findings through various media outlets. His upcoming book, The Alphabet that Changed the World, How Genesis Preserves A Science of Consciousness in Geometry and Gesture, is due for release in 2008.
