GHA Pluralistic Four-dimensional Worldview is Tetraphilosophy and a science of social and individual harmony, known as Tetrasociology. Tetrasociology is expressed briefly in GHA’s Magna Carta of Harmony (2007). The development of Tetrasociology began in 1976 and is now presented in more than 250 scientific publications, including 14 books that have been translated in from 1 to 16 languages, 12 social discoveries, and almost 200 projects, 19 of which were created within GHA.
GHA Paradigm of Global Thinking is a four-dimensional (tetra-) network of harmonious thinking, which is an alternative to one-dimensional, industrial, disharmonious thinking, which is responsible for all global problems and pathologies.
GHA Social Ideal is a harmonious civilization, the features, definition, inevitability and thinking of which are outlined in the GHA Harmonious Civilization Universal Declaration (2009).
GHA Mission is to pave the realized way for a harmonious civilization through the harmony projects, harmonious education and cross-cultural dialogue at all levels: global, regional, national and local.
GHA Harmonious Peace Culture is based on the principle: “If you want peace, create harmony,” which essentially distinguishes it from the industrial, militaristic (non)peace culture, which is based on the adverse principle: “If you want peace, prepare for war” (Si vis pacem, para bellum).
Social Harmony Deep Structure is the four spheres of a social production together with the corresponding sphere classes, which provide continuous reproduction of four necessary and sufficient resources/elements of social harmony: people, information, organisation (institutes) and things. Social harmony is a balance of the spheres, sphere classes and resources. Their conscious balance is provided through the science of social harmony and harmonious education. Their spontaneous balance will occur through violence that is inherent in “prepare for war” paradigm.
Conscious Actors of a Harmonious Civilization are the four sphere classes of the population who differ no in regard to property but in regard to them employment within the four spheres of production and who possess scientific knowledge of social harmony.
Modern Age of Harmony Globalisation is the replacement of violent industrial revolutions, wars and spontaneous crises by scientific projects and achievements of global harmony. The beginning of this epoch occurred in 1990 with the crash of the USSR, which marked the decline of an industrial civilization and the rise of a harmonious civilization.
GHA Four Books are: Harmonious Civilization (2009), Harmony Academy (2008), Magna Carta of Harmony (2007), and Harmonious Era Calendar (2006).

We are constantly being astonished these days at the amazing discoveries in the field of violence. But I maintain that far more undreamt of and seemingly impossible discoveries will be made in the field of non-violence. —Mahatma Gandhi
Such “undreamt and seemingly impossible discoveries in the field of non-violence” is the philosophy and social science of harmony. It is also the generative basis for global harmonious education and Harmony Academies. These Harmony Academies will provide youth and all of society with knowledge and understanding regarding disarmament, harmonious peace and the subsequent infinite series of harmonious discoveries and achievements of a universal nonviolence of which Gandhi dreamt and so wisely foresaw. A harmonious life is the way of universal nonviolence. A harmonious life provides a full-scale response to the challenges of genocide, primarily universal nuclear genocide, ethnic cleansings and other crimes against humanity. This way of harmony and nonviolence is presented in the remainder of this book.
Today, we are not experiencing a crisis that challenges weak souls but the greatest shift of human thought in the last millennia. Standing on this shift and observing the revelation of our future, we should be happy that we can go through it and participate in the creation of such a future. — Vladimir Vernadsky
Modern ‘shift of the human thought’ is a transition from one-dimensional disharmonious philosophy, science and thinking of universal violence to four-dimensional harmonious philosophy, science and thinking of universal nonviolence. This shift is our transition from an industrial civilization built on wars, murders, genocide, terror and other crimes against humanity to a harmonious civilization with a solid foundation of harmonious peace and harmonious global education. This book expresses this dual shift: both in thought and civilization.
— Leo Semashko
My important mission is to discover life meaning to the great cosmic harmony conceived of by the Creator. — Pope Benedict XVI
Divine World Harmony carries happiness and solidity to a soul, peace to nations, consent to a science and belief, and survival and prosperity to humanity.
— Leo Semashko

To create this fourth book, GHA collected basic projects throughout the years 2008 and 2009. We unfolded the philosophy, science and thinking of a harmonious civilization in theoretical and practical dimensions in these projects. The harmonious society, which is replacing the industrial paradigm, hereby receives, for the first time, the scientific theory that unites Tetrasociology with the mathematics of social harmony: Tetramathematics. The fundamental elements of these two new sciences are: sphere resources, spheres of production, sphere classes, sphere matrixes and sphere fractals. They have four- (tetra-) dimensional structure that defined their titles and terminology.
Just as Euclid created the “Geometry Elements” and mathematics of harmony on a basis of the harmonious “Platonic Solids” almost 2300 years ago, the GHA created the “Harmonious Civilization Elements” on a basis of the harmonious “Tetra-sphere Social Solids” through its numerous projects for the past five years.
This book is the first example of the four-dimensional network of harmonious thinking at all levels of world harmony, primarily that of a harmonious civilization. The GHA projects illustrate that the most difficult global problems, which have been created by and irresolvable through one-dimensional industrial thinking, are being solved through harmonious thinking. Therefore these GHA projects pave a conscious path for a harmonious civilization to solve its basic current problems: nuclear armament, reserve currency, lack of global education, and other social maladies.
The Harmonious Civilization Universal Declaration is our key project that most fully expresses culture, thinking and ideology of this civilization on this stage. We present this Declaration as a positive alternative to the bankrupt industrial ideology, which is the cause of all modern crises.
This book is necessary for each person, especially to youth, to resist to the extremist ideas and to create harmony in himself and around knowingly.

Rudyard Kipling’s (1865-1936) poem "If" appears as the epigraph for this book. The poem is presented in Leo Semashko’s interpretation who used italics to emphasize its primary and ingenious meaning in regard to harmony of the opposites. Harmony of the opposites in the individual, in society and between the two is especially pertinent for the modern age of harmony globalisation, to which this book is devoted. The necessity of mastering such harmony, excluding extremes, was foreseen by Kipling in his poem, which therefore is the best poetic epigraph for the GHA book.
(PRECEPT FOR THE ASCENDING HARMONY MAN)
If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or, being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or, being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise;
If you can dream - and not make dreams your master;
If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with triumph and disaster
And treat those two imposters just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with wornout tools;
If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breath a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: "Hold on";
If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with kings - nor lose the common touch;
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you;
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run -
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a (HARMONIOS) Man my son!
