Approved by GHA on September 21, 2013
Approximate length: 300-400 pages
Approximate time of publication: September-November 2014
General purpose: to create a pattern of scientific, harmonious, peaceful, global consciousness and vision for a harmonious, peaceful, world civilization

The organization of creative process: is determined by the GHA Invitation
The book bricks are: individual art works or articles up to 3 pages in one of the book sections (or new) with the answer to question: "What I imagine as the most effective pursuit of Global Peace Science for the 21st Century on the basis of GHA sources and my own vision?"
The GHA key sources for this book:
1. The ABC of Harmony for World Peace ... (2012: www.peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=478)
2. Global Peace Science for G20 and Humanity (2013: www.peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=582)
3. Comparative Sociological Statistical Study of Spheral Harmonious Classes of the Population:
* The GHA chose term "peaceloveology" as the preferred name for Global Peace Science (GPS) as a result of intensive discussions October 20-23, 2013 from many terms: peaceloveology, peaceharmonology, tetrapeacelogy, irenology and others. Along with this term, two of its synonyms "philoirenology" and "peacefulness science" also were recognized. If the term "global peace science" is more turned to the human reason, the term "peaceloveology" with its synonyms and them connotations more turned to the human heart. Recognizing a diversity of terms-synonyms for the GPS name, we consider this merit: it allows you to convey the content of GPS to satisfy the needs of different in intellect and perception people.
The main advantage of term "peaceloveology" and its synonyms is that
it aims this science at peacefulness, the lack of which at all levels from the individual to global is the source of all wars and any violence. GPS is the science which first defines how this deficit of peace love can be made up from harmony at all levels through reason.
However, despite this choice, GHA understands that this term, for a number of reasons, is not satisfactory. Therefore, the search for better names for this science continues. We are ready to consider any proposals of this kind within the next year.

Key peace ideas and definitions of Global Peace Science:
The Sleep of Reason Produces Monsters.
The Sleep of Peace Reason Produced War Monsters of the 20th and 21st Centuries.
Only Global Peace Science will awake this reason.
But this science does not yet exist.
We must create this science that military monsters of military science would not engulf humanity in the sleep of peace reason.
Natural harmony among men is the guarantee of perpetual peace, which is not just a chimerical one.
Kant, in the spirit of his antinomic thinking, held antinomic definition of human nature: the military posed by Hobbes, and harmonious. His philosophy of harmonious social nature of people is the original theoretical foundation and source for the Global Peace Science. Therefore Kant is the ancestor of this science as a science of social harmony, which was most fully developed in the GHA peacemaking books and projects since 2005.
Social harmony provides the best, most just, most free and most equal opportunities and rights for the development of every person, every part of society/humanity and it as a whole. Therefore harmony excludes wars between the parts and is a natural and therefore the ultimate guarantor and source of peace. Hence, peace comes from harmony.
If we are ever to have real peace in this world, we shall have to begin with the children.
If we are ever to have real peace in this world we shall have to begin with the children, with the ABC of Harmony as peace science, and with their harmonious peace education.
Education is the most powerful weapon, which you can use to change the World.
Education will always be the most powerful weapon to change the world, when it will become a planetary harmonious education in Global Peace Science.
Peace cannot be kept by force. It can only be achieved by understanding.
Hence, peace can be achieved and built only by reason, armed with global peace science and embodied in global consciousness through global education in it.
We should overcome the challenge of scientific disarmament and ignorance of peace reason in the face of the powerful and excellent armament of militaristic reason by highly developed for two centuries military science, to which today are served millions of military experts, scholars, teachers and students in thousands of military headquarters staff, academies and colleges of the world.
Harmony is a revolution in our outlook and thinking.
Charles, Prince of Wales
GHA has been developing a harmonious outlook and thinking since 2005, but only now we have come to understand its revolutionary character in Global Peace Science. This science is an intellectual revolution of peace thinking (worldview, theory, philosophy, consciousness) of humanity of the 21st century. Such a scientific revolution of peace thinking is the response to the actual collapse of traditional peace thinking, which has been expressed in the 20th century to the present day in its complete impotence before two world wars, before daily local wars, before galloping military expenditures and the arms race for the third world war, before rising terror and individual murders, etc. This revolution will allow creating Global Peace Science that cannot be created in traditional peace thinking in spite of all its merits.
The revolution of peacemaking thinking from harmony, initiated by Charles, Prince of Wales in his book Harmony, 2010, is a source of inspiration and enthusiasm of GHA and all peacemakers of the world, awaking peace reason through imagination of harmony in Global Peace Science.GHA
In the hands of war are billions of money, millions of obedient troops
and in our hands is only one, but the mightiest tool in the world - the truth.
Of all the arsenals of humanity: culture, science, art, medicine,
education, economy, politics, etc., the most powerful and fastest
growing today is the war arsenal, consolidated by military science, which are nursing all
governments around the world with rabid military budgets, which now absorbs almost all the economic growth of humanity.
The peace arsenal is infinitely weak in comparison with it, first of all, because it is deprived of scientific expression of the peace truth as its mightiest tool. This truth is clearly expressed by Global Peace Science.
We must shift the arms race into a peace race.
Martin L. King Jr.
Global Peace Science reveals the truth that the main source of economic growth of humanity in the 21st century is global peace, not the exploitation of natural resources in military interests. When the governments of the world understand this truth in terms of economic stimulus, then they will come to a peace race, i.e. to emulation of the earliest transformations of military arsenals and military forces to the Peace Corps using military resources and expenses for the purposes of peaceful construction of roads, airports, housing, hospitals, educational institutions, sports facilities, etc. A peace race will overcome hunger, unemployment and other social pathologies and global problems. A peace race as such supersedes the economic and financial crises, resulting from the arms race and excessive military spending. A peace race based on Global Peace Science will ensure sustainable development of humanity, which is constantly being undermined by the arms race.
If you want peace - prepare for war.
Militaristic definition of peace
Peace is not merely a distant goal that we seek, but a means by which we arrive at that goal.
Martin L. King Jr.
To the militarist, having a false definition of peace, peace becomes a slave, a condition, a break between wars and preparations for war, Global Peace Science advocates true definition of peace: “If you want peace - create harmony on the basis of its science.” Peace can be reached only by peaceful path of global peace consciousness through global peace education in this science, and not a global preparation to war in an endless arms race.
Militaristic definition and thinking of peace is limited the military means to achieve peace, which provides, at best, a temporary reconciliation, maintaining an endless war path. We see this throughout history, up to the present day. World leaders and governments are competent in military ways of achieving peace but they are ignorant in peaceful/harmonious means to achieve it.
Peace culture must be in priority, not war culture.
Only Global Peace Science reveals all the diversity of peace benefits before the war and provides insight into the true culture of peace. The lack of this science in human culture is its biggest flaw so far.
This science is the foundation for the Harmonious Culture of Peace , which is opposed to the militaristic culture of peace, absorbing and retaining its private positive moments.
The wise sage Confucius said,
"When there is beauty in the character,
There is harmony in the home"
The enlightened one, the Buddha added,
"When there is harmony in the home,
There is order in the nation,
When there is order in the nation
There is peace in the world"
Confucius and Buddha expressed the architecture of global peace and its main levels: individual - family - nation – humanity/world/Earth. Confucius and Buddha identified the root source of global peace - harmony of the human as a genus. But only through 2.5 thousand years of military history after Confucius and Buddha humanity has come to Science, which allows us to understand the architecture and source of global peace from harmony - not only geniuses but also to everyone. only this Science provides global peace consciousness and global peace from conscious harmony. only this Science will allow consciously establishing harmony in character and family. only this Science will allow mankind to consciously build a harmonious order in the nations and a harmonious global peace in the world on our Earth.
Despite the wise and undoubtedly true words of Confucius, Buddha, and other humanity’s geniuses, the global peace has no appeared on the Earth over more than 2,500 years of endless war on it. It will come to the Earth only when Global Peace Science will be created as a property of all nations and every person on Earth. Therefore, this Science is the first common good of humanity and for each person in the 21st century.
Global Harmony Association,
inspired by Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam, President of India, 2002-2007, the great contemporary scientist and poet in harmony, the ABC of Harmony coauthor, the GHA Honorary Member since 2005 and the GHA World Harmony Creator since 2011, realized the need for this Science and created the first book on this topic in world history in the ABC of Harmony for World Peace … (2012) and in this book.
The Earth Constitution provides a transition from global war-system of nation-states to a global peace system of the Earth nations.
Global Peace Science creates the necessary scientific knowledge and global awareness for this transition.
Ah, if men could understand that giving love will achieve much more than giving hate!
Men can understand it through Global Peace Science, which unfolds the deep mystery of love as peace from harmony in all its bloom and dignity, eliminating hate as own defiling humiliation.
GHA creates Global Peace Science on the shoulders of world giants of human thought.
Global Peace Science is the consolidation of peace
consciousness of humanity in contrast to military science,
which is the consolidation of hostile consciousness in humanity.
If harmony is the ultimate guarantor and natural source of peace, Global Peace Science is the Science of Social Harmony, founded by Kant and which most fully represented in the ABC of Harmony for Global Peace (2012).
The famous American philosopher, the ABC co-author, Glenn Martin, praised it as "our new Planetary paradigm, the fundamental revolution in science and paradigm shift in human consciousness" (p. 296).
GHA does not know other variants of Global Peace Science and other theoretical approaches to its creation, but logically GHA supposes them opportunity and is ready both to compete with them in any international scientific contest for peace science, and to cooperation with them to complement each other in a mutual harmonious enriching.
GHA understands that all powerful militaristic host will hamper to the progress of Global Peace Science, so this task will not be easy and fast one.

Published in languages:
The GPS Central System Law (CSL) is the NATURAL LAW OF OBJECTIVE LOGIC FOR GLOBAL PEACE OF SPHERAL CLASSES OF THE POPULATION FROM SOCIAL HARMONY. THIS LAW DEFINES THE NATURAL HARMONY OF SOCIETY AND NATURE AND INNER HARMONY OF ALL SPHERES, AREAS, PARTS AND GROUPS OF SOCIETY, INTO WHICH THE WAR OR ANY VIOLATION OF HARMONY IS A PRIVATE SPONTANEOUS WAY OF RESTORING HARMONY AND PEACE FROM IT. WAR IS THE MOST PRIMITIVE WAY TO ACHIEVE PEACE AND OVERCOME SOCIAL DISHARMONY. THIS WAY IS DEFINED BY IGNORANCE AMONG PEOPLE AND GOVERNMENTS IN SOCIAL HARMONY OF SPHERAL CLASSES OF POPULATION, THE LACK OF KNOWLEDGE ABOUT WHICH DEPRIVES PEOPLE AND GOVERNMENTS THE ABILITY TO FIND A HARMONIOUS SOLUTION TO ANY CONFLICT AND ENSURE THE GLOBAL PEACE ANYTIME ANYWHERE.
1. LAW OF SOURCES, CAUSES AND ACTORS OF GLOBAL PEACE. A constant source, ultimate cause and eternal actors of global peace of humanity throughout its history are spheral harmonious classes of the population: Socioclass, Infoclass, Orgclass and Technoclass employed in relevant spheres of social production of relevant spheral resources.
2. LAW OF NECESSARY AND SUFFICIENT RESOURCES OF HUMAN LIFE IN GLOBAL PEACE. The spheral classes continuously produce the following necessary and sufficient spheral resources of humanity existence: People, Information, Organization and Things, including artificial material wealth and natural environment.
3. LAW OF HARMONY OF SPHERAL CLASSES AND RESOURCES AS AN ETERNAL FOUNDATION OF GLOBAL PEACE OF HUMANITY. IT IS LAW OF PEACE FROM HARMONY. Humanity is not able to exist in the absence of any one spheral resource and any class that produces any spheral resource; therefore it is doomed to live with a natural need for constant harmony of the spheral classes and spheral resources, harmony of which is the eternal foundation of natural global peace. Briefly this law is called and can be expressed: Peace from Harmony.
4. LAW OF GLOBAL PEACE ARCHITECTURE. The architecture of global peace as peace from harmony encompasses all of its main levels:
• A) Individual (internal) peace of human from harmony of its spheres,
• B) Family peace from harmony of the family spheres,
• C) National peace from harmony of the nation spheres,
• D) Global peace of humanity from harmony of its spheres.
Global peace is a peace of the planetary community of single family of peoples on the Earth, including all of its main levels and allowing the selection of its other special levels: corporate, regional of any size, etc.
5. LAW OF TWO STATES OF GLOBAL PEACE AT ALL LEVELS. There are two basic states of global peace: spontaneous/intuitive and conscious/scientific.
6. LAW OF SPONTANEOUS GLOBAL PEACE AS ITS NATURAL AND IRRESISTIBLE GUARANTEE. Spontaneous state of global peace is a natural and intuitive mass desire for peace and its preference before war. This state is characterized by a lack of scientific knowledge of the sources, causes and actors of global peace, resulting in a corresponding typical mass ignorance of the population, its organizations and rulers who do not know a harmonious way to prevent wars and military conflicts by devising harmonious solutions. This state is accompanied by rare but regular flashes of genius intuitive insight in understanding of peace from harmony, starting since the earliest times: Numa Pompilius, Buddha, Confucius, etc. This state has not been able to prevent the endless local wars of individual nations and groups in the past history of mankind but it is able to prevent the destruction of humanity in the world wars within imperial ambitions of individual nations to which presently subjugate the world through military enslavement. All military empires of the past have failed in similar pursuits, faced with the spontaneous state of global peace as its natural and irresistible guarantee.
7. LAW OF WAR AS PRIVATE CASE OF SPONTANEOUS GLOBAL PEACE: IF YOU WANT PEACE - PREPARE FOR WAR. Under the spontaneous state, in absence of scientific knowledge ofsources, causes and actors of global peace, the war as a primitive animal killing by refined human (rational) means turning into the most reliable private way to ensure at least a temporary peace between nations in history. This was reflected in the militaristic principle of peace: if you want peace - prepare for war. Humanity still lives by this principle, staying in the spontaneous state of global peace.
8. LAW OF CONSCIOUS/SCIENTIFIC STATE OF GLOBAL PEACE: IF YOU WANT PEACE - CREATE HARMONY on THE BASIS OF SCIENTIFIC KNOWLEDGE OF ITS HARMONIOUS SOURCES, CAUSES AND ACTORS AT EACH LEVEL. The crucial and key condition for humanity's transition from spontaneous state of global peace to its conscious state is the creation of Global Peace Science, providing humanity with its common knowledge, which is objectivewith regard to the source and is therefore acceptable to all nations and people on the Earth. This scientific knowledge raises global peace to the level of scientific global consciousness of the world population, its organizations and leaders, freeing them from the ignorance in harmony and allowing them to build global peace at every level from harmony of its scientific knowledge. Briefly this law is expressed as follows: If you want peace - create harmony.
9. LAW TO ACHIEVE GLOBAL SCIENTIFIC CONSCIOUSNESS OF GLOBAL PEACE THROUGH GLOBAL HARMONIOUS EDUCATION AND ENLIGHTENMENT IN THIS SCIENCE. This law expresses a way of transforming spontaneous harmonious spheral classes to the conscious creators of global peace from harmony only through their global harmonious education in Global Peace Science. Conscious global peace is impossible without them; it requires a suitable global science and the corresponding global harmonious education and enlightenment.
10. LAW OF TRANSFORMATION OF ALL INSTITUTIONS OF HUMANITY IN SPHERAL onES, KNOWINGLY DIRECTED TOWARDS PRIORITY OF SOCIAL HARMONY AS SOURCE OF GLOBAL PEACE AND PROSPERITY OF ALL NATIONS AND HUMANITY IN ALL SPHERES: Sociosphere (education, health, social security , etc.), Infosphere (science, art, culture, media, etc.), Orgsphere (democracy, government, politics, law, management, finance, etc.) and TechnoEcoSphere (economy, market, competition, ecology, etc.). This law expresses the objective need for transformation of all the traditional institutions of mankind, directed to war, into institutions of conscious scientific building and ensuring global peace, excluding the need in war as a private and barbaric method of its guarantee, unworthy of human reason, able to find a harmonious way instead of a military one.
11. INTEGRATION LAW FOR THE LAWS OF GLOBAL PEACE IN SOCIAL GENOME (SOCIONOME) OF HARMONY. The integral nature and holism of the Laws of Global Peace Science have been most concisely and clearly expressed by Social Genome of Peace from Harmony, presented in a two-page Scheme of the ABC of Harmony for World Peace … (pages 40-41).
1. The GPS Laws is the center of GPS and the most important methodological and theoretical guide for all articles and book chapters regarding GPS.
2. The previous chapters of the book include analytical reasoning and explanation of the GPS laws.
3. The GPS principles are to detail the GPS laws.
4. The proposed wording of the social laws of Global Peace Science on this, initial, stage of knowledge does not differ by the brevity of expression peculiar to the laws of natural science, with their mathematical form. But over time, there is no doubt, they will reach such perfection, that the natural sciences have achieved through hundreds and thousands of years of development through the efforts of hundreds of thousands of scientists. Harmonious Peace Science is just beginning its evolution within the framework of a small international non-governmental organization - Global Harmony Association since 2005. Therefore, this text will be changed many times as a result of the discussion in the GHA.

Global Peace Science (GPS):
Natural Actors and Peacebuilding Genome
Science of global peace is general hope of all nations
to real peace and prosperity on the Earth in the 21st century.
Global Harmony Association
Synonyms for concept of global peace are: world-wide, universal, eternal, perpetual, continuous, harmonious, non-violent, sustainable, stable, durable, lasting, real, planetary, true, future, and etc.
Antonyms are: local, partial, temporary, discontinuous, disharmonious, militaristic, unsustainable, shaky, wavering, brief, illusory, regional, false, traditional, and etc. peace.
In traditional culture, social science and philosophy, no one has raised the fundamental scientific questions of natural social actors, ultimate cause and any eternal spontaneous source of global peace. Even Immanuel Kant, in his great treatise “Perpetual Peace” (1795), did not do it. But in this work he made the greatest discovery of "harmony among men" as a social nature and guarantee of perpetual peace - as he said, "the guarantee of perpetual peace is … nature". This nature "establishes harmony between morality and politics" through "the transcendental concept of public right," on which Kant builds a harmonious treaty of "perpetual peace among states" (www.mtholyoke.edu/acad/intrel/kant/kant1.htm).
Accordingly, the answers to such questions were absent. The science of global peace does not exist yet. Raising these questions, but more so for the scientific answer to them, requires a fundamentally other area of philosophy and science - the science and philosophy of global social harmony of society as a whole. Such science and philosophy have been developing since 1976 as part of Tetrasociology and Tetrism (www.peacefromharmony.org/docs/2-1_eng.pdf). In the last 8 years, since 2005, they have developed collectively in the Global Harmony Association (GHA) and found expression in its 7 books and 47 projects of global harmony and harmonious peace (www.peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=472). Their most complete and perfect expression is found in The ABC of Harmony for World Peace … (2012, 334 pages) by 76 co-authors of GHA: www.peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=478. This global textbook of harmony reflects the fundamental concepts (see below) and brief history of Global Peace Science (GPS), which is the science of global harmony and vice versa. They are identical.
The GPS core is global sociology and global statistics in an indissoluble unity. Global sociology reveals the global social structure of human society throughout its all history in the form of four eternal harmonious spheral classes of the population employed/engaged in the four spheres of social production of four necessary and sufficient resources for existence of any society and person.
The necessary and sufficient, therefore, eternal, natural and harmonious resources are: PEOPLE, INFORMATION, ORGANIZATION and THINGS (material goods and services). The lack of even one of them in a certain proportion (harmony and measure) with others would make the existence of human and society impossible
The necessary and sufficient resources determine as necessary and sufficient, therefore, eternal, natural and harmonious spheres of their constant and continuous production: SOCIOSPHERE, INFOSPHERE, ORGSPHERE, TECHNOECOSPHERE (economic and ecological spheres together).
The necessary and sufficient spheres of production determine as necessary and sufficient, therefore, eternal, natural and harmonious spheral classes of the population working (or employed/engaged) in these spheres and therefore called spheral classes - SOCIOCLASS, INFOCLASS, ORGCLASS, TECHNOCLASS.
The necessary and sufficient spheral classes as eternal, natural and harmonious creators/actors of any society are its global social structure. They are at one time a NATURAL HARMONIOUS ACTORS, ULTIMATE CAUSE AND ETERNAL SPONTANEOUS SOURCE OF GLOBAL PEACE. They are real, but to transform from spontaneous into conscious and effective creators of global peace they need this science (GPS) and its understanding, awareness and education in it, to build this peace competently.
Eternal global peace is a natural, normal and healthy state of the spheral classes of population and - together with them - society in a whole. This social nature generates and guarantees global peace by spontaneous and harmonious spheral classes of the population. Therefore, the spheral classes and their natural harmony are the eternal foundation of global peace. From this follows the shortest definition of global peace – IT IS PEACE FROM HARMONY, which is created and constantly recreated by spheral classes. The war between them is not possible, since the death of at least one spheral class means the cessation of production of one of necessary resources that leads to death of all spheral classes and society as a whole. The resource wars are possible only between private and temporal dominant groups, nations, economic or political classes, castes, estates, etc. Past history is filled with similar private wars. Therefore, peace between private groups and classes is the absence of war between them or a break in existing war. This is militaristic, private and temporal peace, which is subordinated to war constantly and requires permanent preparation. This peace is ensured by force and threat of force, giving rise the old rule: “If you want peace - prepare for war.” This militaristic trend is reflected in the constant never-ending arms race as preparation for an eternal war that is very ingrained and a wasteful social pathology bled out all parties. Albert Einstein summed up its inanity: "Peace cannot be kept by force. It can only be achieved by understanding", i.e. only the mind and consciousness of spheral classes through peace science and education.
Humanity will be able to recover from this terrible disease only in the development and application of Global Peace Science (GPS). But a global sociology is not sufficient unto itself. To consciously harmonize production resources at the deepest level of global spheral classes, which also determines the conscious building global peace, it is necessary to develop quantitative statistical measures and indices of proportions - the harmony of resources and all processes associated with them: production, distribution, exchange (market) and consumption.
Such measurement in each country has historically been traditional, national in character, statistics. But to measure global resources in their global production, distribution, exchange and consumption by global spheral classes it is necessary to use global statistics. Its basic concepts and indicators, together with the fundamental elements of social harmony, including spheral classes, are also disclosed in the ABC of Harmony for World Peace (pp. 22-58). Global statistics is not possible without a global sociology, and vice versa, global sociology is not possible without global statistics. They are inseparable, as quality and quantity are inseparable. Their common connecting link is the sphere as a structural unit and its quantitative measure - the sphere indices. only in the unity of these two global sciences can we have a powerful tool for innovative scientific discovery of natural creators of World Peace and its scientific building in all countries and regions of the world.
Global sociology and global statistics form the core of GPS, but are not limited by them. The integral holistic nature of global peace requires an equally integral and holistic scientific knowledge combined in one holistic scientific paradigm. It is defined in the ABC of Harmony as a "social genome of harmony of society" - SOCIONOME, which is also a "social genome of peace from harmony." Socionome expresses the holistic scientific paradigm of a new, harmonious and peace, Tetranet thinking and is presented in the ABC of Harmony Scheme (pp. 40-41).
Socionome is a generalized integral expression of GPS as the organic unity of the social sciences. Socionome is simultaneously seen as a model for all social sciences, i.e. it is as sociological, statistical, economic, demographic, historical, cybernetic, synergistic, political, legal, financial, environmental, educational, mathematical and etc. model. Interfaith harmony is also an important aspect of global peace, which is reflected in the GPS (www.peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=561). Socionome combines all social scientific measurements of global peace in its united science - GPS. Therefore, socionome is a scientific peacebuilding genome. Please see the GHA video, which is dedicated to it: Social Genome of Peace from Harmony, 8 minutes: http://youtu.be/hbxY5lREOeA.
The GPS frame above, in general terms, is only a theoretical hypothesis of natural harmonious actors of global peace - the spheral classes of population. Any theoretical hypothesis only becomes a full-fledged science when it finds empirical support. To do this, GHA has prepared a special program of scientific research: "Comparative Sociological Statistical Study (CSSS). Dynamics of the Global Social Structure of Spheral Classes of Population: An Example of India, USA, Russia and Kazakhstan since 1950 to 2010 by Decades. Natural Evolution of Social Harmony, Economic Justice, Democracy and Spirituality towards World Peace and its Global Science." (www.peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=579). This project of GHA, like others, is an international and global inquiry, open to all interested scientists, institutions and countries. At the same time, theoretical and empirical scientific knowledge of spheral classes is seen as the natural harmonious actors of global peace opening the door for its conscious practical building in the 21st century everywhere, in every country and every region on the basis of a scientific study of its main creators, their harmonious education and enlightenment in GPS.
Harmonious education and enlightenment of the spheral classes in GPS transforms them from totally ignorant natural actors of peace from harmony to its conscious and scientifically educated builders. Scientific knowledge of global peace will allow the national leaders, as well as the UN and other international organizations, to make better, scientific solutions of any national, regional and global issues as they are related to building global peace and social cohesion.
Unfortunately, the UN still has not recognized the concept of "science of global/world peace." The UN develops a concept of a culture of peace, including 8 points: mutual respect, understanding, tolerance, democracy, human rights, gender equality, sustainable economic and social development and education. A culture of peace in the interpretation of the UN is very important and necessary step towards global peace but not sufficient. It is limited by the intuitive perception of peace and deprived of its scientific understanding, though science is the key point of culture, providing a practical implementation of ideas. Therefore, the CSSS project, laying the theoretical and empirical foundation for GPS, deserves the attention of all states, governments and their leaders, but above all the UN as a major peacekeeping tool of humanity. GPS consolidates and develops the UN’s 8 point culture of peace, raising them to a qualitatively new level of peace thinking. Peace researches/studies are another important prerequisite for GPS. However, they are confined by narrow local conflicts and do not touch on global peace and its natural harmonious actors.
Social harmony and Global Peace from it are a more powerful source of wealth for humanity than oil, gas, diamonds, IT, etc., taken together. But to use this unknown and inexhaustible natural resource of humanity requires adequate scientific knowledge for all nations - GPS. The minimum cost of the CSSS as the GPS first project and one scientific step to world peace is only $60,000. It pales in comparison with colossal benefits it promises through Global Peace in a scientific plan, which will open the way for its scientific practical realization for humanity in the 21st century.
This science opens up an effective way for the complete disarmament of humanity in the 21st century, during 50 years to reduce military spending by 2% annually by all countries (www.peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=529) and for transformation of the armed forces of war into the armed forces of global peace. These forces could form a "Global Peace Corps" of the 21stcentury under the UN aegis for peaceful harmonious education, health, construction, ensuring food and water and overcoming of unemployment. Of course, peace building requires other weapons than for war, but just as well-trained and scientifically prepared professionals. only in this way can we approach the embodiment a great dream of Martin Luther King Jr.: "We must shift the arms race into a peace race."
A sustainable positive future of the global world is unthinkable and impossible without a science of world peace and scientific peacebuilding. Global social harmony is the source and guarantor of global peace and common confidence of nations, which can be used effectively on the basis of GPS as a general consciousness of all the peoples. This science opens the way for a new, harmonious civilization, excluding war and violence, and with them other pathologies of mankind in the outgoing industrial civilization. The survival of humanity and its sustainable economic and social development in a globalized world and harmonious civilization are possible on the basis of GPS. Therefore, the value of this science for the fate of humanity is difficult to overestimate. This science transforms harmony as a fundamental value of humanity since ancient times, combining all the other values in the modern scientific worldview, spiritually uniting all peoples of the world in a single peace-loving family on Earth.
Many feel that Global Peace Science can not be created through isolated and fragmented efforts of countless peace research institutes and the efforts of separate scientists. While these efforts are commendable, it would seem more logical and effective to achieve best results in a global way, with collective and solidarity efforts of scientists from various social sciences, different countries and cultures in the spirit of Durkheim and harmony. This integral and holistic scientific trend has thriving in the Global Harmony Association during more eight years. But it requires an expansion of participants and its influence to ensure success in the creation and recognition of an unprecedented development to be called Global Peace Science.
The main obstacle hindering international cooperation to create GPS may be a lack of understanding of this science as modern planetary necessity by traditional peace institutions and scientists. It is possible that they question the need for GPS, or prefer to restrict current efforts to isolated and fragmented researches. Of course, GPS may become better known and accepted and scholars will recognize the need for the creation of this science only through proof of the theory in the empirical study now being proposed (CSSS). A new trend in peacebuilding within global peace science (GPS) will emerge demonstrating intellectual and practical preferences of international cooperation by liked peaceful institutions. In this scientific collaboration, each peace scientist and organization can find room in a harmonious unity with a diversity of other scholars and institutions.

P.S. My lifelong status about 40 years at homeland in the state: in Soviet Union since 1976 and in Russia since 1990 and still is dissident. This is connected with my discovery and development of Tetrasociology (Sphere Approach since 1976) as the science of social harmony, harmonious civilization, harmonious spheral classes and global harmonious peace that is provided by these classes. This science is contrary to Marxism as ideology of class war, which, in fact, remained in Russia. My status is confirmed by many facts.

GHA new book was approved: Invitation to Global Peace Science Imagination
Dear GHA Members, Friends,
I am happy to report that the GHA project of a new book: Global Peace Science: The First Common Good for the 21st Century and every Human was approved unanimously! This project has been published in Russian and English languages here:
In English: www.peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=585
In Russian: www.peacefromharmony.org/?cat=ru_c&key=606
It is also represented in the attachment - 6 pages.
I express my heartfelt gratitude to all participants of this approval! The project is a grand joint achievement of the GHA members!
This book will be the key contribution of GHA and partners to global peace. This book synthesizes in harmony many peaceful ideas of the past and many members of GHA: Glenn Martin’s the Earth Constitution, Norman Kurland’s economic justice, Ernesto Kahan about love, Mary Robert’s priority of women in global peace progress, and many others that you will find in this project. Thanks to Bruce Cook for editing this project. It is updated continually.
The approval of this project is the official beginning of a long (at least a year) and difficult creative process for creating the book. This has been an unprecedented process of collective solidary imagination for Global Peace Science in Durkheim’s spirit. Immanuel Kant is recognized by us as progenitor of this Science as the Science of Global Harmony.The organization of this process is presented in a special INVITATION within this project, so I will not repeat it now. Each peacemaker is free to distribute this invitation to all channels and in all social networks.
God has blessed us with this key step within reason towards global peace!
With love, best harmony wishes for this Divine way of peacefulness,

THE GHA SOURCES for author’s articles. GHA unanimously approved on September 21, 2013 for the new, 48th project to create the book: "Global Peace Science: The First Common Good for the 21st Century and every Human." The publication of this book is expected a year later, in September 2014. Hereinafter abbreviations are: GPS, GPS book, GPS project, GHA GPS book, etc. This project was published in Russian and English languages here:
Over the past 8 years the GHA has developed the theory/science of global peace as the theory/science of social harmony, which has found expression in the collective 7 books and 48 GHA projects:
The most detailed expression of a conceptual foundation of this science is The ABC of Harmony for World Peace … , 2012: www.peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=478
However, the ABC of Harmony is not limited to global peace and does not determine the theoretical system of GPS, focusing only on its conceptual foundation. Therefore, a separate book for special theoretical expression of GPS as development and concretization of this conceptual foundation is needed.
The Program of Comparative Sociological Statistical Study of harmonious spheral classes of the population as a natural/spontaneous actors and end sources/causes of global peace provides an empirical substantiation for GPS. The Program is available here: www.peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=579
This Program has not been implemented due a lack of funding at $ 60,000. But this study is a mostly technical issue. Actually, this program demonstrates the full reality of this study, all its key concepts, hypotheses, and relevant statistics. This technical task requires a lot of research work that, if funding will be available, will be carried out simultaneously with the creation of a GPS book and as part of it.
You can appreciate the practical sense, social and economic importance of GPS for humanity of the 21st century by reading the GHA Open Letter to G20 leaders at their Summit in St. Petersburg, 5-6 September 2013, as well as in the 48 GHA members letters to Heads of States and Governments with a proposal to initiate GPS. These letters and discussions was posted here: www.peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=582
The above list of the GHA main sources for authors’ articles does not exhaust the whole list of them and does not in any way limit the use of other sources in these articles at the author’s discretion.
INTENTION AND HIGHER PURPOSE of the GPS BOOK. GHA regards this book as the crown of its 10 -year-old peace research in the form of synthesizing of previous work with the most important private peacemaking theories and ideas of other organizations and scientists. For example, the Prince of Wales announced the worldview revolution in his excellent book "Harmony" in 2010 (www.peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=477). At that time GHA understood and declares now that his GPS book will define a conscious intellectual revolution of peace thinking in the 21st century. GHA consciously pretends to do this it now, because this book, for the first time in the world, will provide a universal and holistic scientific theory of global peace on the basis of a scientific theory of social harmony presented in the ABC of Harmony also for the first time in the world. The scientific revolution of peace thinking in the GPS book is the main source of inspiration and enthusiasm of the GHA members and its other authors for the collective creative process of its creation. GHA consciously prepares this revolution as one of the best in human history and invites all responsible peacemakers in the world to its preparation.
This book will attempt for the first time in history to answer to this most complex epistemological (philosophical, theoretical and worldview) question: what is the nature of global peace in the history of humanity and HOW KNOW AND THINK this nature? This question remains unanswered, but without a scientific and theoretical answer, humanity will never achieve global peace and may ultimately die in endless wars. Therefore, this book requires a new way of thinking, which in the ABC of Harmony was defined as a holistic, harmonious and network thinking of the spheres - Tetranet thinking. GPS will give the first scientific and holistic response to it in this way of thinking, which involves a new classification of humanity into four historically significant groups/classes. only a new, revolutionary peace thinking can provide a scientific understanding of global peace, and its conscious construction of all the peoples of the world. only this way of thinking will overcome the crisis and actual crash of traditional peace thinking. This crash was expressed in the 20th century to the present day in complete impotence of this thinking before the two world wars, before the daily local wars, before galloping military expenditures and the arms race for the third world war, before the growing terror and individual murders, and etc. Therefore, GPS creativity is impossible in traditional peace thinking.
The GPS creativity is possible only in revolutionary new scientific thinking. Traditional peace thinking is subjective. It is woven from a myriad of subjective peace perceptions, which are deprived of a single scientific objective basis and largely contradictory, enervating and devaluing themselves. They never will allow the achievement of global peace, which can only be objective in its essence and not subjective. Paraphrasing, we can say that subjective peace intentions have paved the road to all wars while global peace can emerge from a science in its objective essence.
The GHA's new book dedicated to GPS will be the beginning of the scientific revolution of peacemaking thinking, i.e. knowledge of global peace. This revolution means achieving global peace as a result of the following chain of spiritual causes and effects: global peace harmonious consciousness - global harmonious education - the science of global harmonious peace – and the theory of global harmonious peace, revealing harmonious spheral classes of the population as the ultimate objective sources of global peace. All these levels will find coverage in the GPS book. The key role among them belongs to theory. The famous scientist Ludwig Boltzmann wrote "there is nothing more practical than a good theory". Global peace will never come until humanity can successfully create a valid good theory of it. Anyone who denies the peace theory/science that denies peace in the reality. This is proven by history to the present day.
Going to the theory of global peace in the GPS book is at the same time not only a scientific challenge but also its supreme moral principle, because war is always immoral. This moral imperative is the highest condition of our Rules and authors’ articles, which was formulated by Kant as follows: Perpetual peace has nature done with man's own reason …. as his duty … and moral purpose (www.mtholyoke.edu/acad/intrel/kant/kant1.htm, FIRST SUPPLEMENT: www.mtholyoke.edu/acad/intrel/kant/firstsup.htm). Therefore, the GPS book will seek to serve as a moral and legal constitution of the Earth.
The project contains an INVITATION to the members of GHA and other peace organizations to participate in creativity of this book as scientific revolution of peace thinking. The architecture of this book and GPS allows integrating in harmony the diversity of all constructive private ideas and theories of traditional peace thinking. Their harmonious synthesis, within an holistic universal architecture of scientific knowledge of global peace, will preserve the viability of traditional ideas and theories and will give them a new development and practical sense.
THE RULES’ FUNCTIONS. The process of harmonious integration of different peace ideas and theories in GPS is a very difficult and complex epistemological process, for regulating which at least in general lines the GHA discussed and approved these "Rules". They will help the authors understand the intention and purpose of the GHA new book and combine in a harmonious unity the dozens of authors’ articles with dozens of different peace ideas and theories. The Rules orientate the authors to the study of Spheral theory in recommended sources of GHA and to conscientious relation towards them. But they do not limit this relation, which can be very different, either coherent and sharing, or critical, or supplementing and etc., which will in any case develop and enrich the article as a part of GPS. This relation is natural for any scientific work in the framework of review of its sources. Therefore, these rules do not limit freedom of scientific thought in any way and they are open to all new peace ideas, theories, methods, strategies, principles, and practices. They prepare the authors to examine the exceptionally difficult epistemology of global peace in the organization of a collective process of its knowledge in the GHA. They will provide authors a better understanding in the collective discussion of articles that will eliminate or minimize the frictions and conflicts between them. They are not a hard requirement but only a guide for the author's articles. They serve as a coherent editorial policy, justified by readers' interests and needs, because the reader is interested in reading a book about global peace havinghigh intellectual quality with a decent theory but not a “choir of deaf authors”. Therefore, cognitive and organizing role of these Rules is clear as a simple and necessary consolidating algorithm or compass aimed at the highest quality of authors’ articles and GPS book as a whole.
1. Global Peace Science (hereinafter - GPS) in the GHA first conception and execution as a synergetic and harmonious synthesis of various authors articles - this is not the end but only the beginning of an endless evolution of scientific consciousness of global peace, without which humanity cannot survive and develop further as a single family of the world’s peoples. This means that each author's article in GPS also cannot be regarded as the final and indisputable word. Each article can be improved by the author or by collective discussions indefinitely. But every step on the way to improve it must be justified theoretically and empirically.
2. Each author's article in GPS is the answer to the main question: "What I imagine as the most effective pursuit of global peace science as a whole or its separate aspect on the basis of GHA sources and my own vision?”
3. GPS, which is the science of social harmony, cannot be a collection of disparate articles lacking internal harmonious unity and compiled on a principle of "deaf choir, or “choir of the deaf." This would be contrary to harmonious essence of GPS. However, the fact that a theory differs from GHA’s vision does not mean it is typified as being deaf.
4. GPS of harmony should be a model of harmony. It is provided by the GPS united harmonious architecture that combines a variety of peacemaking ideas in organically integral/holistic knowledge of global peace in all its aspects.
5. Harmonious architecture of GPS by the most concise way is expressed in the Socionome of the ABC of Harmony on two pages (40-41). The author of each article could determine, primarily, to what sphere of global peace the main subject of his article relates. These spheres are four: sociosphere, infosphere (the spiritual realm), orgsphere (the sphere of politics, law, finance, management, etc.) and technoecosphere (economic/ecological sphere). The definition of one or more spheres for the article along with a reference to Socionome could be the beginning of the author's articles and the base of its classification in the GPS. The more detailed explanations of Socionome can be found in GHA other sources. GHA welcomes any positive or critical brief analysis of Socionome in each author's article.
6. Each author's article can suggest a scientific explanation of one or another necessary aspect of global peace in one (or more) of its four spheres. This aspect may have a cognitive background in the GPS letters, proposals and outline, which were concentrated in the GHA initiative for G20 and published here: www.peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=582, either in the GPS key ideas presented in the book project here: www.peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=585.
7. The search and scientific analysis of the preconditions of the GHA sources, along with their quoting, could form the introductory part of the authors’ articles. Attracting and analysis of other backgrounds from other sources is welcome: they will enrich the scientific content of GPS.
8. For the empirical studies, if they are assumed to be in the author's article, it is advisable to connect and compare with the GPS empirical foundation in Comparative Sociological Statistical Study (CSSS: www.peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=579)
9. Based on the previous steps, the author will define the final title of his/her article, and will choose for it an adequate section of the book proposed contents or will offer for it new section.
10. GPS will be a next, after the ABC of Harmony, a step in peace Tetranet harmonious thinking, which involves the synthesis of the contents of each author's article in the tetra-model. This is the most complex and subtle intellectual moment. Therefore, the GPS book editor invites the authors of articles to joint formation of such models in the process of bilateral dialogue since November 2013.
In the future, if necessary, the GHA will update these Rules edition at the request of any group of the authors of GPS together with their concrete editorial amendments.

The Rules for GPS: Scientific Revolution of Peace Thinking. GHA approved them
Dear friends, GHA members,
I am happy to report that the GHA approved the Rules for the GPS book unanimously: we have not received any “NO”, although there were some doubts.The Rules are published here: www.peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=585
Our discussion of these rules was extremely fertile for new ideas, despite the inevitable frictions and misunderstandings. In fact, our discussion turned into a single architecture of collective creativity of GPS and its book. We created a sketch of the science and expressed the imagination of this science in all its dimensions: scientific, philosophical, moral, legal, etc. The abundance and quality of our ideas is amazing! We found in our rich and fertile discussion a new understanding of the GPS book as scientific revolution of peace thinking, which covers all wealth of our ideas.
If the Prince of Wales has announced the worldview revolution in his excellent book "Harmony" in 2010 (www.peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=477), then GHA understood and declares now that his GPS book will constitute a conscious intellectual revolution of peace thinking in the 21st century. GHA consciously pretends to it now, because this book, for the first time in the world, will provide a universal and holistic scientific theory of global peace on the basis of a scientific theory of social harmony presented in the ABC of Harmony also for the first time in the world. The scientific revolution of peace thinking in the GPS book is the main source of inspiration and enthusiasm of the GHA members and its other authors for collective creative process of its creation. Focusing on this, Ayo wonderfully wrote. “All the inspiring ideas from our discussions are reflected in the Rules new edition.” I will briefly call some of these ideas:
• Glen: GPS as the Earth Constitution and moral imperative + Rules amendments,
• Bruce: coherent editorial policy in the process of creativity of the GPS book,
• Didi: synthesis of new peace ideas, theories, methods, strategies, and practices,
• Maria Ascona: the GPS book based on Tetrasociology as a moral constitution of the Earth,
• Ayo: the GPS book should be a source of inspiration and enthusiasm for peacemakers,
• Hedva: the way of knowledge for global peace is very hard, it requires a common ground of consent,
• Julia: moral imperative for GPS to unite humanity,
• Uraz: book series for GPS,
• Roxana: the theory of spheral being as a platform for different thinking for future peace,
• Laj: cooperation of peace workers; subjective character of traditional peace thinking, etc.
Five GHA members have sent articles in GPS. Matjaz, inspired by debates, even sent two different articles. I express my heartfelt thanks to everyone for taking part in this meaningful discussion.
I am happy to send you the Rules updated version in an attachment, which includes all the wealth of constructive ideas.
Thanks to them our Rules have acquired a new quality. They are now clearly revealed in the main center of this book as a scientific revolution of peace thinking in the 21st century and the general architectural sketch of its content. At the same time, I added the GPS key ideas by the following essential idea of Prince of Wales along with the interpretation of GHA
Harmony is a revolution in our outlook and thinking.
Charles, Prince of Wales
GHA is developing a harmonious outlook and thinking since 2005, but only now we understood its revolutionary character in Global Peace Science. This science is an intellectual revolution of peace thinking (worldview, theory, philosophy, consciousness) of humanity of the 21st century. Scientific revolution of peace thinking is the response to the actual collapse of traditional peace thinking, which was expressed in the 20th century to the present day in its complete impotence before the two world wars, before the daily local wars, before galloping military expenditures and the arms race for the third world war, before rising terror and individual murders, etc. only this revolution will allow creating a Global Peace Science that cannot be created in traditional peace thinking in spite of all its merits.
Revolution of peacemaking thinking from harmony, initiated by Charles, Prince of Wales in his book Harmony, 2010, is a source of inspiration and enthusiasm of GHA and all peacemakers of the world, awaking peace reason through imagination of harmony in Global Peace Science.
The Prince of Wales wanted to say that harmony is a revolution in everything, in consciousness and in life. This is a very important concept for the GHA, which we follow and which we are developing in our work since 2005.
I invite members of the GHA for two days to send me your editorial changes to this text and to the updated Rules. I'll send the updated architecture of contents of the GPS book in the coming days. This will complete our methodological preparation for the difficult path of knowledge and creativity of GPS. All authors will be able to understand what the results we seek in our GPS book are and in what way we are going to achieve it.
With love and best harmony wishes,
Dr. Leo Semashko,
The updated Contents of the Global Peace Science book was approved
Dear GHA Members,
The updated Contents of the Global Peace Science book were approved! We have not received a single NO in voting on it. It is published here: www.peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=585.
I am happy to congratulate you on this and sincerely thank the participants of the discussion and approval.
In the Contents following changes were made:
1. Norman Kurland was removed from the authors upon his request.
2. We invite the co-authors for the following articles:
Erica Lazarova. Numa Pompilius: The Oldest Example of Social Peace from Harmony
Alexander Subetto. Noospheric Paradigm of Global Peace Science
3. We have included two new articles by Maria Cristina Azcona:
Art, Literature and Culture for Global Peace from Harmony
From Inner Peace to World Peace in GPS
4. We have included three new articles by Leo Semashko
Theories of Social Justice from Inequality with Plato and from Equality of Harmony: Kant, John Rawls and others
Singapore: Social Peace and Prosperity from Religious Harmony
Social Governance Way "Peace from Harmony" as Supreme Integration Principle in GPS
We are pleased to invite our two well-known artists: Lida Sherafatmand and Celia Altshuler to take part in the decoration of the two inner covers of GPS book on a competitive basis through creative thinking by harmonious spheres, which I wrote to you about a month ago.
We also invite all authors and the interested to participate in the GHA’s new book. Just send your articles to me a public way (through email@example.com) to ensure transparency and democracy of our collective creative process. Let me remind you: the deadline for articles is November 30, 2013.
Now we have all the necessary methodological, informational and organizational prerequisites for the hard and long work with articles for this book in creative collaborative editing and discussing articles in accordance with the Rules, to ensure the high scientific quality of each article. To do this, each article should have brief analysis of GHA sources and other literature, bibliography, brief biographical note, etc. in accordance with the requirements in the Rules here:
Please do not misunderstand me. These Rules and Requirements are not a personal whim, and were approved by the GHA norms of our joint creative work. I, as the only editor, am just not physically able to write for more than 60 articles in the GHA new book the analysis of sources and other literature, your biographical information and still ensure compliance for every article with 20 Requirements. So, ultimately, I will refuse to publish all items that do not meet the Rules and Requirements in them. As you know, these are the conditions of work of any editor in any scientific journal and in any publisher. I, like you, work on a full voluntary basis and have no assistants, as well as strength, health, and time to perform for each author this work, which requires the Rules and Requirements. I hope you understand this, and we will respect and cherish each other in accordance with these Rules.
I'll start my editorial mission in November and in the sequence of articles corresponding to the book logic, so do not rush me, please, - for each article’s time will come. We have about 6 months for this work, i.e. we should finish around 10 articles a month. At the same time, I have to write my own articles and chapters in this book. I will be forced to abandon all other works in the GHA and all letters not related to the GHA new book until May 2014. So please excuse me if I do not respond to letters other than those concerning this book.
Hoping for your understanding and a friendly, mutually respectful and patient work with the author's articles. Thank you.
With love, Best harmony wishes,
Dr. Leo Semashko,
The Term/Title for Global Peace Science (GPS): PEACELOVELOGY? GHA Voting up to October 23
Dear GPS coauthors and GHA members,
We have identified with you, in the first approximation, the GPS’s book Contents, the architecture of this science and the architecture of global peace, which found expression in the GPS Laws. All of these are published here: www.peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=585
Now before GHA there is a new epistemological question of linguistic character: which term we may choose to name/title GPS? This is not an idle question, as the name of each science constitute its terminological and linguistic life in the language of scientific knowledge of humanity, as well as its broad praxiological (practical, social, technological and user) process.
We know that GPS still does not exist. Therefore, naturally, there is no term to title this science. The GHA is a pioneer in this field. GHA first became aware of this science and its social need in the 21st century and first attempted to create it for more than eight years on the basis of a scientific theory of social harmony, which is presented in the most detail in the GHA book "The ABC of Harmony for Global Peace ... " (2012: www.peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=478
But GHA still has not found the term for this science name. Today I am pleased to offer you for discussion and approval of this term in the first approximation for 3 days up to October 23 inclusively by your YES or NO vote with your comments. Naturally, I want to stress once again that our choice is not final; we will return to it throughout the whole year of creation of this GPS book. Our initial selection will be just the beginning in the definition of the term for the GPS title.
The most typical way to form the name of a science in the history of human knowledge is a synthesis of the two terms, one of which expresses the subject area of science, and the other - the Greek term "logy" - expressing scientific knowledge, or a science of this field. For example: sociology - the science of society, psychology - the science of psyche, biology - the science of life, geology - the science of earth, and so on. Of course, other ways of forming the name of a science also exist, but today we will experience this way.
We might think, based on these assumptions, the GPS name can be created very easily and simply: you combine two words – “peace” and “logy”. However, the term "peacelogy" is already used in Russian and English. A search of GOOGLE shows 3,500 cases of its use in the Russian language (as MIROLOGY), and 740 cases of its use in the English language. Their analysis led to the following conclusions.
The term MIROLOGY in Russian language is discredited by the religious sects (http://www.antimodern.ru/mirology.html), neo-Marxists (http://kommunika.ru/?p=6302), literary pranksters (http://frumich.livejournal.com/216144.html, http://zvezdochet.livejournal.com/88954.html), unfounded claims to "innovation logical thinking in psychology – MIROLOGY” (http://region70.ru/Drugoe/Ostalnoe/16560/?inf=1), etc. This term has been involved in the Russian language on the identity and conscious or unconscious confusion of two completely different concepts - THE WORLD AS COSMOS (the surrounding universe) and PEACE AS LACK OF WAR IN HUMAN SOCIETY. In the English language on Chinese websites usually it is used in the sense of "Philosophical Peacelogy, the Spirituality of peace": (http://m.riss.kr/search/Search.do?queryText=znSubject,Philosophical+Peacelogy&searchGubun=true&colName=re_a_kor&detailSearch=true) or in licensing, marketing and so on, that is far from the GPS. Therefore, this term is not suitable to describe and express GPS, and we need to avoid any association with discredited or different meanings of this term.
The GPS is a new science, which opens a new era of world history - the era of peaceful harmonious coexistence among the peoples of the Earth, which excludes any war. This era is fundamentally different from any past, military, era of humanity. Therefore, GPS, which begins this era of humanity, requires a new and appropriate title, not aggravated by the vicious or narrow senses of the past era. In terms of this criterion, I can offer a choice of one of three "pure" (they are not in GOOGLE) terms for the GPS title:
1. Peacelovelogy - combines two universal values of "peace" and "love" with "logy"
2. Peaceharmonylogy - combines two universal values of "peace" and "harmony" with the "logy"
3. Tetrapeacelogy - combines the value of "peace" with its four dimensions of "tetra" and "logy"
From the point of view of the GPS scientific content, the third term is the most appropriate and accurate, as it expresses four-dimensionality of social harmony and global peace from this harmony. But their four-dimensionality, as well as the appropriate term "tetra", are virtually unknown for science and social consciousness, so they will cause constant questions and doubts (for example: What is a tetra? Why is tetra, not a trio, duo, etc.?) The four-dimensionality and its term must first find acceptance in science to become an element of the GPS name. Therefore, this term can not be considered preferable.
The second term also cannot be called preferred by the same arguments, despite the fact that harmony is the ultimate cause and source of global peace. But it is also not known yet as science and social consciousness.
The most preferred is first term, the values/components of which are positive, universal, well- known for world culture and are recognized all over the world. They emphasize the love for peace not war, and they exclude the war. Of course, they do not differ by rigorous science of GPS but they express its fundamental commitment: to love peace, therefore, always and everywhere to produce in it that whichis the main meaning of global peace and its science. Therefore, Global Peace Science is, in truth, PEACELOVELOGY. Conversely: Peacelovelogy is Global Peace Science, born in the 21st century by the GHA and marking a new era of humanity - Global Harmonious Peace. To this era the GHA first book of 27 authors from 12 countries in 12 languages: Harmonious Era Calendar, 2006: www.peacefromharmony.org/?cat=ru_c&key=190 was devoted.
As for the rigorous scientific understanding of this term, it may be added to it in the future, when this understanding will find universal acceptance.
Hence, I choose the first term of the three proposed and invite other members of the GHA to support this choice as the best to date but not excluding the offers and discussion of other options.
As you can imagine, this is a very important voting and a very important choice for the GHA, so I invite all its members to take an active part in it and express YES to the first term. Of course, the last word may be for each of you. Thank you for your participation in the democratic choice of the term for the name of GPS as a turning scientific knowledge for history of humanity.
With love to peace and best wishes for peace from harmony,
Dr. Leo Semashko,
The Term for Global Peace Science (GPS) - voting results
Dear GHA Members,
I am glad to report: discussion and vote of a better term for Global Peace Science concluded with the results shown in the table below.
Table of voting for titles of Global Peace Science, created in the GHA
Indicated votes “YES” for every title
October 20-23, 2013
We presented three terms: 1. Peaceloveology, 2. Peaceharmonology, 3. Tetrapeacelogy to discuss and vote them. We got more than 50 responses in both English and Russian parts of GHA, of which 30 contained a vote for a particular terminological version presented in the Table.
GHA discussed and approved by a majority of votes in Russian the term Mirolyubologiya (Peaceloveology) with its Greek counterpart - Filoirenologiya (Philoirenology). Also another synonym was adopted: Peacefulness Science. All three names are identical in content and are synonymous for Global Peace Science.
In English were presented the same three terms: 1. Peaceloveology - in the wording of David Stringer from Britain, 2. Peaceharmonology - in the wording of Maria Cristina Ascona from Argentina, and 3. Tetrapeacelogy.
Peaceloveology term was approved by a majority of votes with its Greek counterpart - Philoirenology. Considering the Russian proposal Mirolyubia Science (Peacefulness Science) in the English language we have three similar synonyms for Global Peace Science: Peaceloveology, Philoirenology and Peacefulness Science. They are also identical in the meaning. We consider the diversity of synonyms by merit as it allows you to convey GPS content to differing in intellect and perception people.
However, despite this choice, GHA originally understood that the proposed terms, for a number of reasons, are not satisfactory, so the search for better names for this science continues. We are ready to consider any more perfect terms during a year to create this book: Global Peace Science (www.peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=585).
In view of voting the term, we have now the following full title of the GHA new book:
"Global Peace Science or Peaceloveology*: The First Common Good for the 21st Century and every Human, Scientific Revolution of Peace Thinking, Creation of Peace from Harmony instead from War." *This will be given the term explanation.
This title expresses the basic features, advantages and benefits of Global Peace Science as the basic guidelines for its creators - coauthors.
I am happy to express my heartfelt gratitude and high appreciation to all the participants of discussion and voting, which are very important for the fate of Global Peace Science.
With love to peace, best harmony wishes,
Dr. Leo Semashko,
