Harmonious civilization

Albert Einstein, Nobel Prize in Physics:

1. Peace cannot be achieved through violence, it can o­nly be attained through understanding [SCIENCE]. [BUT]

2. The significant problems we face cannot be solved at the same level of thinking we were at when we created them. [THEREFORE]

3. We shall require a substantially new manner of thinking if mankind is to survive. [NEW THINKING IS GLOBAL PEACE SCIENCE, GPS. IT PROVIDES]

4. Mankind's desire for peace [WHICH] can be realized o­nly by the creation of a world government.


Global Harmony Association:

1. World government maybe o­nly Global Peace Government of global SPHERONS instead global corporations.

2. Global Peace Government can arise and work o­nly o­n the GPS basis as SPHERONS nonviolent ideology and scientific worldview.

3. Hence, if mankind is to survive, it must require from the national governments to recognize, to develop and to put in practice the SPHERONS GPS as a substantially new manner of social thinking to create world government, to constitute global peace and "shift the arms race into a peace race" (Martin Luther King Jr.)


Vladimir Putin, President of Russia:

1. The right choice is the choice in favour of peace. [FOR WHICH]

2. We need is an essentially different approach [ENSURING] harmonization ... harmony.[THIS ESSENTIALLY DIFFERENT APPROACH IS GPS]

3. Russias strength lies in...the harmony of cultures, languages andall faiths

4. Washington is the Enemy of all Humanity and Putin saves the world from nuclear war by not being provocative. Paul C. Roberts

What will say other national leaders?


John Scales Avery. Nobel Peace Prize:

We need system change, not climate change! We need a new economic system, a new society, a new social contract, a new way of life. Here are the great tasks that history has given to our generation: We must achieve a steady-state economic system. We must restore democracy. We must decrease economic inequality. We must break the power of corporate greed. We must leave fossil fuels in the ground. We must stabilize and ultimately reduce the global population. We must eliminate the institution of war. And finally, we must develop a more mature ethical system to match our new technology.



World Intellectuals Endorse the Importance of Global Peace Science

Sixty years ago, Bertrand Russell and Albert Einstein issued a grim warning to the people of the world. They wrote that we face a choice that is stark and dreadful and inescapable: Shall we put an end to the human race; or shall mankind renounce war? Looking over the record of these years, it is a miracle that we have survived, and the threats are very real today. A Global Peace Science devoted to renouncing war can make a critical contribution to removing at last this sword of Damocles poised over our heads.

Noam Chomsky, Prof. (r), Dept. of Linguistics and Philosophy, MIT, Cambridge, USA, World Harmony Creator


The United States and the United Kingdom committed genocide against the Iraqi people when, between 1990 and 2012, they killed 3.3 million people including 750,000 children through sanctions and wars. I believe NATO should be abolished and that steps be taken towards disarmament through non-violent action and civil resistance. The means of resistance are very important. Our message that armed groups, militarism and war do not solve our problems but aggravate them challenges us to use new ways and that is why we need to teach the science of peace at every level of society.

Mairead Maguire, Nobel Peace Laureate, Ireland


The West is now preparing a Crusade II against Islam; as individuals and as a state; better a Crusade against the Western addiction to war, state terrorism and militarism. For this we need more truly global peace science and research than ever, developing theory and concepts like harmony, testing them in concrete practice to solve underlying conflicts.

Johan Galtung, Dr., HC, Mult, Prof. of Peace Studies; Founder, Transcend: www.transcend.org, World Harmony Creator


The plague of global militarism and terrorism is hellish grave and horrendous chaos from war. Humanity should slip out of it by the strides of Global Peace Science from harmony to a new Renaissance. This Science fearlessly calls for international as well as personal disarmament to survive and get rid of the nightmare of dreadful abysmal crisis when its irrepressible powers push us toward turmoil. Peace Science is light at the end of lethal tunnel of armed violence.

Ayo Ayoola-Amale, Teacher, Muse of Poetic Harmony, GHAAfrica President, Ghana


Three interconnected Great Revolutions of humanity are: Globalization, Informatization and Peacescienzation: Global Peace Science (GPS) as revolutionary shift to Indian Vedic tradition: World is o­ne Family o­n way of building bridges of global Peace. GPS inspires transition from dying culture of militant materialism (anger, greed & violence) fomenting nuclear wars to culture of Peace from Harmony and Love. Military science divides the humanity and Peacescience unites it in peace and harmony of "One World - o­ne Family." Therefore GPS is Victory of Peace over War, vaccine and immunity from the plague of global militarism and terrorism and alternative to nuclear war saving the Earth planet & Humanity.

Dr., Prof. Subhash Chandra, GHA Secretary General, India


Humanity lives at a moment when in many countries politics has become an extension of war. The violence, especially in Europe and the United States has become normalized. The relentless mobilization of fear and insecurity by governments mark a failure of collective conscience, flirtations with irrationality, and the triumph of extremism. State terrorism is o­n the rise and the plague of authoritarianism has cast an ominous shadow over the liberal democracies. A Global Peace Science devoted to creating the formative cultures, institutions, and movements elevating peace over war, justice over injustice, and democracy over militarism is crucial for renouncing war.

Henry A. Giroux, McMaster University Chair Professor of Scholarship in the Public Interest, Faculty of Humanities, Hamilton, Canada


It is gratifying and symbolic that Global Peace Science includes in life under the Peace Banner proposed 80 years ago by Nicholas Roerich, expressing continuity of the peace source in culture, an integral part of which is science. Global Harmony Association has already demonstrated its previous publications (among them the main thing is The ABC of Harmony) that it aspires to unite people o­n the basis of scientific worldview with full respect to different religions and cultural diversity. Global Peace Science is the Earth people new step to make conscious choice of peace today in the exacerbating struggle between light and darkness.

Yulia Budnikova, researcher of the Roerich creativity, President, GHA-Russia


Condemning war and militarism is an important first step toward saving the world from a nuclear catastrophe. We must also recognize that hegemonic provocations by US/NATO could lead to a world war. The United Nations, due to its fatally flawed Charter, is unable to prevent the perpetual wars that constantly threaten humanity's very existence. Hope lies in replacing the UN Charter with the visionary Earth Constitution together with fundamental Global Peace Science geopolitics -- gifts to the world awaiting discovery for a peaceful Era.

Roger Kotila, Ph.D., Editor, Earth Federation News & Views, USA


Save the world from a global war may turn of the current human evolution to conscious harmony, creating global peace through science, spirituality and morality. Knowledge of the laws of deep structure of social harmony, including the paradigm of "D + 3D", performs by Global Peace Science, acquirement of which becomes urgent task of all states in the 21st century in transition from destructive geopolitics of war to saving geopolitics of peace. "Harmony will save peace through science!"

Uraz Baimuratov, Academician, Director, Institute of Economics, Academy of Sciences, Kazakhstan


Human beings are rushing headlong to the precipice of extinction. Why is this? Because we are engaged in an orgy of violence against life: our fellow humans, our fellow species, the Earth itself. To survive, we must do many things ranging from nonviolently resisting those insane western elites that threaten us with nuclear obliteration to learning to nurture our children so that they lead lives of fearless, compassionate power in the struggle for peace, justice and sustainability. Global peace science has a vital role to play in this endeavor.

Robert J. Burrowes, author of 'Why Violence?', Australia


The soul of humanity requires immediately the Global Peace Science which is capable to stop the atrocities of the Western world dominators, lay the foundation of Peace, Harmony, Democracy, Freedom, Justice, Love and Dignity of mankind and clear the terrible darkness of human soul. Because, deeply within the humanity consciousness remains ignorant and helpless in regard to peace, immersed in history in continuous wars. Unfortunately, for thousands of years, no religion, no art, no law and policy were not able to go out it of the militarist slavery, due to lack of paideia (education of beautiful and good) and Peacescience. o­nly paideia plus the powerful tool of Peacescience are able to do it that determines its historical role.

Dr. Panagiotis (Takis) Dimos Ioannides, Athens, Greece


Invincible soft force of global peace consists in absolute power of social harmony of the world's population, in its four SPHERONS, harmonious classes. Their harmonious power, scientifically organized in Spheral Democracy (SPHERONS democracy) at all levels from local to global is able to put an end to militarism and endless wars of the irremovable ruling elite under the pall of its militarist "democracy". In 2015, Global Peace Science became first property of humanity staying earlier in the full power of military science, militarism and continuous wars of elite. The historical significance and intellectual power of peace science consists in discovery of an alternative, soft power of peace from SPHERONS harmony, winning military force agony, plague of militarism/terrorism and violence orgy.

GHA Message TO BRICS and other Peaceful States Leaders:

President of Russia - Mr. Vladimir Putin

Prime Minister of India - Mr. Narendra Modi

President of the People's Republic of China - Mr. Xi Jinping

President of Brazil - Ms. Dilma Rousseff

President of South Africa - Mr. Jacob Zuma

President of Kazakhstan - Mr. Nursultan Nazarbayev

Prime Minister of Malaysia - Mr. Najib Razak

And other.

The Global Harmony Association (GHA), which comprises more than 600 members from 65 countries and has created for 10 years the first in history version of "Global Peace Science" (GPS) in same name book o­n the Russian (2015) and English (2016) languages by more than 130 coauthors including the former President of India, Abdul Kalam, Nobel Peace Laureate Mairead Maguire, pioneer of peace studies Johan Galtung and many other distinguished scholars and peacemakers,



as joint bridge of peace through science and culture for the beginning of 20-25 scholars, for example in Russia, Simferopol that will make Crimea by BRICS scientific center.

The IAGP Purposes are development of Global Peace Science (GPS) as innovative transformation of peace thinking, training Bachelors, Masters and Doctors of Peacemaking Science and diffusion of GPS.

The Method of GPS development is democratic consolidation in IAGP the scientific groups from different countries with different scientific approaches to peace. The GPS option created in the GHA is the initial. The GPS final version should be created in the IAGP.

IAGP Vision: Creating a multipolar and harmonious/balanced world order excluding the war to ensure peace and prosperity to all nations.

IAGP Implementation: Joint projecting and investment (both: state and business) in construction of the IAGP building in Crimea and joint governance of the IAGP.

Motivation: Planetary peace in the 21st century is achieved o­nly o­n the basis of peace science, which is created by the IAGP and guarantees the BRICS peace priority.

Peace in our time is as fragile as it was 100 years ago. Humanity is o­nce again o­n the verge of world war but now nuclear, unprecedented in its victims. War constantly wins peace because it has one absolute advantage - military science, science of killing by the most sophisticated weapons of mass destruction. This science was established more than two centuries ago and since then all governments cherish it with the fattest military budgets.

But in contrast to war, peace is still deprived of own science that does not allow to strengthen it with stable social consciousness. Creation of this science is the historical mission of the BRICS, which o­nly you are able to decide. Another way to global peace does not exist. (The Message full text see chap. 10).

Global Harmony Association (GHA): Key Definitions

GHA, created o­n February 15, 2005, is an international NGO that unites more than 600 members from 65 countries and more than o­ne million participants from the GHA collective members in 80 countries.

GHA Founder and President is Dr. Leo Semashko.

Address: St. Petersburg, Russia.Phone: +7 (812) 597-65-71

Web: http://peacefromharmony.org E-mail: leo.semashko@gmail.com

The GHA 50 Projects List: http://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=472

GHA Mission is to bring global peace from harmony and to pave a conscious way for harmonious civilization o­n scientifically based ABC of Harmony and Global Peace Science (GPS) through harmonious education and cross-cultural dialogue at all levels: world, regional, national and local.

GHA Pluralistic Four-dimensional Worldview is Tetraphilosophy and science of social harmony and harmonious civilization, known as Tetrasociology. Both constitute Tetrism or Harmonism. It has been evolving since 1976 and is represented in more than 400 scientific publications including 16 books and brochures o­n 16 languages, and more than 230 projects, 50 of which were created within GHA since 2005.

GHA Paradigm of Global Thinking (Tetranet thinking) is four-dimensional (tetra-) net harmonious holistic and peaceful thinking, which is an alternative to o­ne-dimensional, industrial, disharmonious, partial and military thinking, which is responsible for all global problems and pathologies of modernity.

GHA Social Ideal is global peace of harmonious civilization, features, definition, inevitability and thinking of which are outlined in the GHA Harmonious Civilization Universal Declaration (2009).

Culture of Global Harmonious Peace is based o­n the principle: "If you want peace, create harmony," which essentially distinguishes this culture from industrial, militaristic (non-peace) culture based o­n the principle: "If you want peace, prepare for war" (Si vis pacem, para bellum).

Deep Structure of Social Harmony is: 16 fundamental elements of social harmony expressed by social genome  SOCIONOME, whose center consist the four SPHERONS  global harmonious spheral classes of the population. SPHERONS are the creator of these 16 elements and, hence, global peace through balance/harmony of these elements. The conscious balance of SPHERONS is provided by the GPS and harmonious education in this science.

Conscious Actors of Harmonious Civilization and global peace are the four spheral classes of the population  SPHERONS, which differ not in regard to property but in regard to their employment into the spheres of production and which possess scientific knowledge of social harmony.

Modern Age of Harmony Globalization is the replacement of violent industrial revolutions, wars and spontaneous crises by scientific achievement of global harmony and global peace. The beginning of this epoch has occurred in 1990 with the crash of the USSR, which marked the fall of industrial civilization and the rise of harmonious civilization.

The GHA 8 Books for 10 years are: Global Peace Science (2015 in Russian and 2016 in English); The ABC of Harmony (2012); Russia, Forward, towards Harmonious Civilization (2010); Kazakhstan  Harmonism Strategy for the 21st century (2010);Harmonious Civilization (2009); Harmony Academy (2008); Magna Carta of Harmony (2007); and Harmonious Era Calendar (2006).

The GHA total grade:

On the threshold of the new millennium, when the prevalent ideologies have come into contradiction with reality, Global Harmony Association makes its appearance offering humanity the necessary philosophical vision of peace from world harmony.

Prof. Ernesto Kahan, former Vice-president of the International Association of Physicians. It was awarded Nobel Peace Prize in 1986. (The ABC of Harmony, p. 84)



Dedicated to

the loving memory of the greatest thinkers and peacemakers of humanity:

Egyptian Priests, Buddha, Pompilius, Confucius, Pythagoras, Heraclites, Laozi, Empedocles, Plato, Aristotle, Euclid, Ashoka, Erasmus, Kepler, Montesquieu, Leibnitz, Shaftesbury, Russo, Kant, Comte, Smith, Marx, Dostoevsky, Tolstoy, Danilevsky, Weber, Jung, Gandhi, Montessori, P. Ouspensky, Sorokin, Toynbee, Parsons, Einstein, King, Roerich, Braudel, Freire, Marcuse, Fromm, Bourdieu and others, who made an invaluable contribution to comprehension of prerequisites of harmonious civilization and world peace, through the integration of brilliant ideas of which were created The ABC of Harmony and Global Peace Science (GPS).



Dedicated to

the loving memory of gone but not forgotten friends of harmony and Tetrasociology:

Valery Isaev, Michael Lebedinsky, Alexander Yushchenko, Vladimir Strelkov, Vadim Trifanov, Bladimir Kavtorin, Abram Yusfin, Igor Shadhan and Abdul Kalam, who have made the great contributions to preparation of the projects of harmonious civilization and global peace including The ABC of Harmony and Global Peace Science (GPS).



Dedicated to

the loving memory of my heroic mother, Augusta Rumyantseva, born in 1920, which saved me a newborn in hell of Nazi bombing and shelling in late June 1941 (my father was killed in the first days of the war) o­n the USSR western border in Grodno. Before her death in 2003, she told me with tears about the horrors of these days, asserting that not o­nly she saved me but and I saved her because she did not want to live in this fiery hell and the o­nly child gave her the courage to survive. The tears of suffering and self-sacrificing love of my mom, who I adored all life, made me the hard peacemaker to find a way to end all wars.

And I, together with the GHA, found it, saved by God of military hell and
inspired and blessed my mother.

Global Peace Science or Peaceloveology: First Common Good and Human Right, Revolution of Social Sciences, Creating Peace from SPHERONS' Harmony and Nonviolent Victory of Peace over War in XXI Century. World textbook. 48th GHA project. The first publication in Russia in 2015.  432 p. The first publication in English in Delhi. 2016. 612 p.ISBN 978-5-94422-035-6



Global Peace Science (GPS) is the first in history the science of world peace, after more than two centuries of the birth of military science in the Adam Bülows book in 1799. The GPS Cognitive result is the first scientific extremely laconic formula of peace: peace from harmony of SPHERONS through science, which determines a source, social actors and main way of global peace. The objective grounds and numerous details of this formula are disclosed in the book 13 chapters in different dimensions: social, philosophical, historical, structural, functional, political, economic, personal, educational, psychological, legal and others.

The GPS practical and political resume is: Invincible soft force of global peace consists in absolute power of social harmony of the world's population, in its four SPHERONS, harmonious classes. Their harmonious power, scientifically organized in Spheral Democracy (SPHERONS democracy) at all levels from local to global is able to put an end to militarism and endless wars of the irremovable ruling elite under the pall of its militarist "democracy". In 2015, Global Peace Science became first property of humanity staying earlier in the absolute power of military science, militarism and continuous wars of elite. The historical significance and intellectual power of peace science consists in discovery of an alternative, soft power of peace from SPHERONS harmony, winning military force agony, plague of militarism/terrorism and violence orgy.

Global Peace Science (GPS) is defined in its key qualities in the book title. Its main achievement and sociological foundation is the discovery of four objective harmonious spheral classes of the population employed in the respective spheres of social production and because titled by SPHERONS, which by their nature provide social harmony as a constant source of peace. If Marx discovered in society the antagonistic groups as eternal sources of class struggle and wars, GPS discovered the eternal harmonious classes as sources of peace, in which the Marxs classes is o­nly partial, disharmonious and temporary cases.

GPS is a theoretical knowledge of global peace of SPHERONS confirmed by historical and statistical facts. Discovery of SPHERONS as the deep and constant global social structure is discovery a new social energy and soft force of harmony, able to harmonize all spheres of society and the individual.It is a scientific breakthrough to a new, harmonious civilization and revolution of all social sciences overcoming its two centuries of lagging behind the military science.

The GPS creation began almost 40 years ago, but strongly during 10 years in the GHA since 2005. The philosophical and sociological basis of GPS and SPHERONS discovery is Tetrism (four-dimensional pluralism) as unity of Tetraphilosophy and Tetrasociology  the science of social harmony, global peace and harmonious civilization. The most complete it is presented in "The ABC of Harmony" (GHA 2012).

The book chapters is united in two parts: peaceful (future) and military (past) history of mankind, and three sections of the first part, which respectively unfold the architecture of GPS, global peace, and finally its evolution in the present time. The GPS unprecedented theoretical and practical qualities create a fundamentally new space of innovative technologies: social, informational, political and economic. This science is necessary for all conscious builders of global peace, especially leaders.

God created human beings in HIS own image

And gave people reason that they were

Powerful in harmony and harmonious

in power, as HE; that they were free from

the military pathology of mutual kills

and will become capable to solve all problems o­n the Earth

without wars and murders in perpetual peace.



Global Peace Science is created by Gods will,

to disarm the warlords, put

an end to wars, and, as Martin Luther King spoke,

"shift the arms race into a peace race."



Here the fear should not give a council.



We did as we could.

If you can, please, do better.



If someone feels this book is insufficient as a

Status of a new science (GPS), each, probably, will agree

It is the most profound staging for the question

Of such a science. In any case, it stimulates

its development.



War possesses with science for over 200 years.

Why does science remain superfluous and unnecessary

so far for peace?

Who could say?

Foreword. Global Peace Science: Development and Conclusion of The ABC of Harmony

Global Peace Science (GPS) is the application, continuation and development of the ABC of Harmony (2012) [1]. It discovered the science of social harmony. It is the beginning and source of global peace science from harmony as revolutionary social and peace thinking. Its key philosophical conclusion as theoretical platform of GPS is in the following.

Harmony is the best state and condition for life of nature, society and the human. Harmony (measure and consent) is the goal of any whole and its all parts at all levels. NOTHING IS BETTER THAN HARMONY IN GODS PERFECT CREATION. NOTHING BETTER HARMONY DO NOT EXIST IN NATURE. All blessings and spiritual values are aspects of harmony. Similar ideas have been expressed by the greatest thinkers of humanity for more than five thousand years: Egyptian Priests, Buddha, Pompilius, Confucius, Pythagoras, Heraclites, Laozi, Empedocles, Plato, Aristotle, Euclid, Ashoka, Erasmus, Kepler, Montesquieu, Leibnitz, Shaftesbury, Russo, Kant, Comte, Smith, Marx, Dostoevsky, Tolstoy, Danilevsky, Weber, Jung, Gandhi, Montessori, Ouspensky, Sorokin, Toynbee, Parsons, Einstein, King, Roerich, Braudel, Freire, Marcuse, Fromm, Bourdieu, and many others.

Social harmony provides the most favorable conditions of all possible and the most fruitful opportunities of all imaginable for life and development of each part of humanity, every nation and every human, as well as humanity in a whole. Therefore, all parts spontaneously seek harmony, and where it ends  there ends the existence and life itself. What could be better for the life of a society and person than harmony? We have not found the answer to this question. We assume that the answer to this question does not exist. Therefore GPS defines the ultimate source of global peace in social harmony.

All values and benefits of humanity are derived from harmony and impossible without it and beyond it. Life, love, peace, faith, justice, freedom, equality, brotherhood, happiness, humanism, human rights, sustainable development, survival and prosperity of mankind, of all its parts, nations and persons,  are consequences and attributes of social harmony. Their measure is determined by their degree of social harmony and they live o­nly in the framework of this measure.

This measure is presented for the whole of humanity and for all levels in the social genome of harmony  SOCIONOME, which defines its fundamental actors  harmonious spheral classes  SPHERONS. Social harmony becomes conscious and most effective when they will transform from spontaneous to conscious actors that begin with the creation of scientific knowledge of social harmony, its SOCIONOME and SPHERONS in the ABC of Harmony.

Thinking spheres and SPHERONS within SOCIONOME create a qualitatively new way of thought that determines the revolution of social thinking and breakthrough in social science. Along with this new knowledge arises global peace science (GPS). It expresses the scientific revolution of social thinking and a breakthrough in social knowledge,which retains and consolidates all previous peacemaking achievements, raising them to the level of innovative science of the 21st century.

The principal value of the ABC of Harmony is the beginning of global peace science and source of its revolutionary thinking. But this was anticipated by Confucius, Buddha, Jesus Christ and many other prophets and thinkers of humanity. What Abdul Kalam wrote o­n the first of them, can be said about each of them:

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".

Abdul Kalam [2]

This is the most accurate definition and most brief formula of global peace from harmony at all levels from the individual to the whole world:

beauty (measure)

harmony (consent)

order (coherence)

peace (prosperity).

The source of global peace is measure and harmony in all spheres of humanity and the relevant order into its social, spiritual, political and economic life.

GPS spiritualizes this formula of global peace from harmony through 2500 years by discovering and unfolding the essence of its universal and eternal actors  harmonious spheral classes, SPHERONS. This is its innovation and scientific revolution, to which this book is dedicated.

Terminology and Abbreviations: Global Peace Science (GPS)

This book contains many new concepts. Thus is natural for a new science: none of them is impossible without new terminology. Any of them need it to express distinctive qualities. Therefore, each new science creates its own terminology and its new conceptual apparatus. Such is Global Peace Science, the basic concepts which, together with their modifications and reductions  abbreviations for their use are given below.

- Global Peace Science  GPS;

- Peaceloveology  is a brief emotional synonym for GPS as its rational name. GHA recognized this term for GPS as the most preferred synonym over some others: peaceharmonology, tetrapeaceology, irenology and others. The main advantage of term "peaceloveology" 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 scientific theory of harmony through reason. They complement each other well. However, this choice leaves open the search path for better names for GPS.

- Global Harmony Association  GHA, the GPS first conscious creator.

The different abbreviations for the book title  "The ABC of Harmony for World Peace, Harmonious Civilization and Tetranet Thinking":

- The ABC of Harmony for Global Peace,

- The ABCs of Harmony,

- ABC;

- SOCIONOME  social genome of society, global harmony and global peace. It brings together 16 fundamental spheral elements of society, ensuring its constant production, life and development as a whole. SOCIONOME is The ABCs of Harmony quintessence as a science of global harmony. Therefore: SOCIONOME of global harmony is the SOCIONOME of global peace and vice versa.

Peace Structures/Spheres:

- Social Sphere  Sociosphere, S;

- Information Sphere  Infosphere, I;

- Organizational Sphere  Orgsphere, O;

- Technical (material, economic and environmental) sphere  Technoecosphere or Technosphere, T;

- SIOT Structures/Spheres. They produce PIOT resources. These spheres but in another terminology were defined by Karl Marx in "German Ideology" in 1845 [3];

Peace Resources:

- Human resource  People, P;

- Information resource  Information, I;

- Organizational (managerial, financial, political, legal) resource  Organizations, O;

- Technical (material, economic and environmental/natural ) resource  Things, T;

- PIOT Resources. These resources were first identified Alvin Toffler in 1980 but in a slightly different version [4];

Peace Actors:

- Social Class  Socioclass, (Humanitarian Class), S-class;

- Informational (Creative) Class  Infoclass, I-class ;

- Organizational (managerial, administrative, political, ruling) class  Orgclass, O- class;

- Technical (material) class  Technoclass, T- class;

- SIOT-classes;

- Spheral Classes of the Population*  SCP or SIOT-classes or SFEROCLASSES or SPHERONS employed in SIOT structures (spheres) by production of PIOT resources;

- SOCIOSPHERON  Socioclass, INFOSPHERON  Infoclass, ORGSPHERON  Orgclass, TECHNO(ECO)SPHERON  Technoclass;

- Spheral or SPHERONs belonging  it is belonging, participation of the human to SPHERON, to spheral class, employed in o­ne of the spheres;

(* The term "class" is associated with antagonism, enmity and war of the traditional classes. The spheral classes are deprived of these qualities and are o­nly the actors of harmony, consent and peace. Therefore, to get rid of inadequate past associations, this new science  GPS  uses new terms, clean and free from distorting associations termed SPHERONS to express harmonious spheral classes of the population, ensuring global peace. This term is most often used in this book compared to other synonyms. SPHERONS in general are the world actors employed in harmony. They basically cannot be engaged in war they have never been and cannot be actors of war but their historical parts  separate groups, nations or partial classes are frequently encountered in wars and armed conflicts. This is explained in the book. SPHERONS of GPS not confuse with spherons in physics).

- PARTONS*  are the private groups and classes of people employed in various sectors of public activity and constituting the certain branch parts of SPHERONS.

(* PARTON is from the English word  part. PARTONS of GPS not confuse with the partons in physics).

- The concept of "dual peace" or "two peaces." It expresses the coexistence in human history a reality of "two peaces." The first peace is the eternal, global, natural, but intuitive and spontaneous peace from harmony of SPHERONS. This peace was discovered for the first time in GPS together with the opening of SPHERONS. The second peace is a temporary, local, but military peace from war, deliberately provided by the principle: "If you want peace  prepare for war", which acts throughout history until now. The second peace limits, complements and illustrates the insufficiency of spontaneous state of the first peace, expressing the need for its transition from spontaneous to conscious state o­n the basis of relevant scientific knowledge  GPS. o­nly in this case will be solved the historic contradiction between the "two peaces" in favor of the first, which eliminates, prevents and makes the second, militaristic and bloody peace from war unnecessary. In fact, the GPS entire book is devoted to this concept and solving contradictions of "two peaces."

Synonyms of the first peace from harmony are: world-wide, universal, eternal, perpetual, continuous, harmonious, non-violent, sustainable, stable, durable, lasting, real, planetary, true, and etc.

Synonyms of the second peace from war are: local, partial, temporary, discontinuous, disharmonious, militaristic, violent, unsustainable, shaky, wavering, brief, illusory, false, traditional, and etc.

The simultaneous growth of both opposite trends with the perspective of either winning the first through GPS or military destruction of human and Earth is characteristic for modern humanity.

Peace Processes:

- Production of PIOT Resources,  Production, P;

- Distribution of PIOT Resources,  Distribution, D;

- Exchange (Market) of PIOT Resources,  Exchange, E;

- Consumption (Use) of PIOT Resources,  Consumption, C;

- PDEC Processes. These processes for the material production were first identified by Adam Smith in 1776 [5];

- Self-production or autopoiesis is o­ne of the key terms of the theory of social harmony and GPS expressing life time employment of every human by production of himself in all aspects from birth to death in such processes as sleep, rest, food, communication, training, etc. Any other,  labor (industrial and economic) employment is part of self-production as life employment. The term autopoiesis was first introduced by Humberto Maturana and Francisco Varela (1973) [6] for theoretical biology to describe the self-reproduction of living cells. The human, as a cell of the social organism, also possesses a fundamental quality of similar social self-production. This concept was later borrowed by Niklas Luhmann in sociology in 1990 [7] as autopoiesis of human communication as a key element of the social system. The term of self-production or autopoiesis was borrowed from these theories but has in GPS and the theory of harmony its own meaning: it expresses production (upbringing) of the human himself in a peaceful or military spirit in harmony or disharmony, etc. It also differs from the corresponding narrow economic concept as individual production.

Other terms:

- Tetranet thinking,  four-dimensional holistic harmonious network thinking.

- Military-Industrial Complex,  MIC. Together with armed forces and infrastructure, MIC creates Military Arsenal and Potential,  MAP. It is the system of 16 fundamental elements of war and its preparation. They are the SOCIONOME elements, the parts of which are used for military purposes to conduct and prepare wars. Now they are about 11% of world GDP: [8]. But this represents costs o­nly to the armed forces. Expenditure o­n MIC amounts to 23 times more; however they are a state secret and are not reflected in budgets disguising themselves in its other articles. To these must be added the costs of production of handguns (personal weapons). The governments understate military spending as they all are provided by taxpayers, i.e. almost the entire population. Therefore, the true costs for MAP are largely unknown, but they are several times higher than official military spending and account for approximately 3040% of the worlds gross domestic product. This is not the 11%. MAP characterizes as the extent and degree of military disharmony prevalent is military pathology of human society in a whole today. (See more o­n military expenditures in more detail the special article below.) Military elements are labeled: MIC or MAP, or "war" and etc. War as any pathology of the social organism cannot be included in its constitution.


Preface. Need, Intent and Conditions of GPS Creation

Industrial civilization of the fragmented nation-states with hegemony of the strongest world military power led in the late 20th century to its self-denial in the globalization [9]. This civilization is unable to solve their generated and constantly escalating global problems of humanity in all spheres within a unified framework of global harmony and national interests of 250 countries including the UN 193 states-members [9.a.]. Globalization has put the question of change of industrial civilization in continuous global economic, financial, political, ideological and socio-demographic (ethnic) crises, which are insoluble in the wars as a traditional industrial method to overcome the problems. Replacement of industrial civilization in globalization coincides with the renunciation of war and hegemony of a militaristic strongest power and from o­ne polarity. Along with this trend is a growing simultaneously spontaneous harmonization of all the spheres, which focuses in the search for a harmonious common denominator of national and global interests. Harmonization allows freeing primarily from wars and ensuring global peace for all nations, instead of military hegemony of o­ne state, as happened recently in the Crimean crisis without a shot. But it is a spontaneous process, which requires scientific awareness in GPS.

Real social need for global peace without war occurs together with the beginning of globalization era in the late 20th century and increases with its development, expansion and deepening. However, we must not forget the dream of world peace has always lived since ancient monuments of literature in all local civilizations. But it remained a dream until humanity remained fragmented along national borders of society. "The policy of national interests" in the era of globalization, does not work or is too bad and this demonstrates that growing global challenges, crises and diseases cannot be resolved within narrow national interests. This era requires from 200 nation states the world politics of global interests, which cannot be other than the politics of global harmony and global peace without war. Alternatives for it do not exist. The representatives and actors of global interests are SPHERONS, spheral classes of the population, covering the whole of humanity and every country. They constitute the main subject of GPS disclosed in this book.

National interests are natural within the boundaries of the nation state but their priority is beyond these boundaries is fraught with conflicts and wars. Therefore, the o­nly natural priority of global interests beyond national borders is to determine which requires a special scientific instrument  SOCIONOME (social genome of global peace). o­nly within this is it possible to understand the discovery and role of SPHERONS as actors of global peace and agents of global interests. SOCIONOME and SPHERONS form the core of this book (see details below), and provide a common scientific platform or theoretical paradigm for a coordinated policy of global interests for all nations. This policy defines the best measure of the national interests for each country.

But this policy remains terra incognito, because humanity is still unknown to two sciences: global harmony and global peace, and this can o­nly be a reasonable common ground for all people and states of the world in their new policy of global interests. These sciences have been made possible thanks to two fundamental discoveries in social science  SOCIONOME, social genome of global harmony and SPHERONS, harmonious spheral classes of the population. The first versions of these sciences through these discoveries was created in GHA in the ABC [1, 3546] and in this book, which opens broad prospects for further development of this knowledge for the governments and peoples as a common basis for policy of global interests. The first versions of these sciences are the first response to these corresponding global social needs and challenges and allow us to understand them clearly. The named scientific discoveries provide an opportunity to create a harmonious common denominator of national and global interests, excluding any military global hegemony [10], [11] and any war.

The idea of creating GPS originated in the GHA in its inception in 2005. It has gone through many stages of approximation and implementation, expressed in seven previous books and 50 projects for almost 10 years (see bibliography).

The resources for GPS creation were virtually nil, so the conditions of its creation were extremely unfavorable. But GHA for nearly 10 years created independently two main resources for it:

1. Scientific theory of social harmony, which is a theoretical and information platform for GPS (it is most fully expressed in the ABC of Harmony [1]).

2. A small international group of enthusiasts-peacemakers (about 200300 people) devoting ideas for peace. Of this group, an international team of the GPS authors (up to 100 people) was formed.

Two other resources remained essentially zero:

3. Financial resources, except the meager donations of GHA members (see list of donors and their donations), and

4. Material resources, except for limited technical support of the GHA members.

Despite these adverse conditions, the GHA is pleased to present to the court of world community, international organizations and national governments a new, vital concept necessary for all people  the science of global peace in this book.


Introduction. Global Peace Science (GPS): Methodology of Description and Expression

The human history o­n the Earth, from the foggy beginning to the foggy end, is divided into two very unequal parts. The first, in a few tens of thousands of years is a historical era of the growing wars within number, replacing each other, local and temporary disharmonious civilizations. It concludes with self-negation in the industrial militaristic civilization that brought wars and generated social disharmonies to their logical end. The second , in the future in a few billion years, as there is the planet Earth  is a historical epoch of peaceful global harmonious civilization of united family of nations, the collective mind which found a conscious harmonious scientific way, devoid of wars, for endless social development in harmony, for harmony and from harmony. The passionate turning point from the first to the second era would have been Global Peace Science (GPS) in the early 21st century, in 2014. GPS will initiate the permanent system development of peace mind and peace thinking. This science had tens of thousands of steps preceding its historical approach and search in the first epoch and it will have millions of climbing steps and improvement in the second period of history.

However, GPS itself has been compressed into two years, contradictory history of its creation within the GHA. Previously the GHAs 8 years were a time of its search and training in the published 7 collective books and 50 projects of global peace from global harmony. The ten-year history of the GHA, which now brings together more than 500 individual members from more than 60 countries, is a collective passionate rise and unprecedented spiritual breakthrough of humanity to science of global peace. The beginning of this breakthrough relates to 1976, nearly forty years ago [1, 118119]. Conscious global peace was impossible without GPS in the past. It will be possible in the future thanks to this science, which will be a motor of human spiritual renewal. GPS like Janus is facing both sides of the time: it is the result and end of the military past and at the same time  the opening and beginning of a peaceful future. But where to begin presentation and expression of GPS in the world textbook designed for the new generations and a new, harmonious civilization? Since is its historical past, or since logical inference of this long, difficult and contradictory history?

Since 2013, a year after the publication of the ABC of harmony as a theoretical source of GPS, when GHA began discussing the idea of new book o­n GPS, there emerged a strategy of description and expression from the past to the future, from war to peace, from military science to peace science, from military mind to peace mind, from peace from war to peace from harmony. This strategy was approved GHA in March and November 2013 in two different versions, which was reflected in the sequence of two parts of this book:

PART 1: Past Military History. Military Mind and Peace from War. The End for Era of Military History.

PART 2: Future Peace History. Peace Mind and Peace from Harmony. Opening Peace Era of Human History.

But a year later, after intensive discussions of various aspects of articles and book chapters, author team of the GHA came to the conclusion that the inverse logic of GPS expression is required. It should go from the future to the past, from peace to war, starting with the theory of natural spheral classes of the population, SPHERONS within the GPS system Center  SOCIAL GENOME (SOCIONOME) of global peace from harmony.

The discovery of harmonious spheral classes began in 1976 and the discovery of SOCIONOME as a o­ne harmonious system of necessary and sufficient conditions for these classes relates to 1980. But its system substantiation was presented in 2012, in the fundamental book the ABC of harmony [1, 4041] by 76 coauthors of GHA. The ABC of harmony is the science of global social harmony, the theoretical center and consolidating core which is SOCIONOME. It is a methodological cognitive axis of GPS, consolidating into o­ne indivisible whole 16 fundamental elements of global harmony disclosed in ABC [1, 2281]. Among these 16 elements a key role is played by spheral classes, SPHERONS as the deepest cause of global peace  harmony of the social whole.

Through SOCIONOME in GPS discloses and explains also the deepest source of wars  disharmony of private groups of people, PARTONS: separate nations, classes, estates, castes, etc. War for these groups is the o­nly way to overcome their acute disharmonies because of their ignorance and lack of knowledge of scientific harmonious solution of social problems. SOCIONOME explains the most profound causes of war and peace and its SPHERONS determine their central and key position in GPS. Its expression starting with SOCIONOME and its SPHERONS defines a revolution of peace thinking not o­nly in its content but also in its modus. Most succinctly SOCIONOME is presented in the following scheme:


SOCIONOME: Social Genome of Global Harmony and Global Peace of SPHERONS.

More details o­n SOCIONOME see [1, 3843] and Video: http://youtu.be/hbxY5lREOeA

Note. o­ne of the important applications of SOIONOME is its use as an information, statistical/economic and mathematical simulation model at all levels of society from family and school to the country, continent and the world at large. A comparison of these models shows a measure of harmony and disharmony between these objects and levels in their dynamics that provide a harmonious management, without which it is impossible to harmonize their fundamental elements consciously. Their conscious harmonization is a source of peace and it overcomes the most serious disharmonies as causes of wars and armed conflicts. See the special paragraph in the book about it below.

SOCIONOME is explained in detail and is used to resolve the social problems and issues of conscious, practical-building global peace throughout our book and at each article and paragraph in some measure and in some of its aspects. It integrates the contributions of co-authors in a coherent collective monograph.

The integral essence and central theoretical place of SOCIONOME and SPHERONS in GPS defines the logic of deployment of this science in a spiral of all its parts, sections, chapters and paragraphs in the book. This logic begins with the GPS at its center and goes from unknown to the known, from the understanding of peace to the understanding of war, from the future to the past.

War and the military past of mankind constitute a fact well known to all people from the history of their nations and of world history textbooks. It is known that "for the 5500 years, there were more than 15,000 wars, in which up to 3.5 billion people were killed. We can say that humanity has always fought in its history. For past 5500 years, people could live in peace o­nly a paltry 300 years, that is, it turns out that in every century a human civilization lived in peace just a week"[12]. Military science has developed in the last 200 years; it has reached the astounding achievements that can destroy humanity in a few minutes just in the last 50 years. Nevertheless, the human mind is still working mostly o­n war and more intensively. War takes the first place in the world, in human minds, as shown by our monitoring (see below). Peace will never be established until it has become a priority of consciousness. Therefore in GPS it is put in the first place. Still, it remains inaccessible to science and Cinderella in society. Its causes and actors diffuse in the dim and foggy consciousness. People are constantly dreaming about peace but feeling it from different sides. Like blind men, they create thousands of scrappy private images which are poorly interconnected and do not answer the main question: what are the ultimate causes, sources, guarantees and actors of global peace?

The answers to these questions are designed to give place to GPS and its theoretical core  SOCIONOME, which is a key discovery of social science and yet totally unknown to most people. So the answer to the question: where to start GPS expression  with a description of the long-known history of wars or from the core of global peace, to be created  is obvious. The most social and educational value today is future global peace, building of which is impossible without its uniform scientific knowledge for all mankind  GPS. Therefore, GPS and its theoretical center  SOCIONOME  is a historical precedent in modern scientific knowledge. Therefore the expression of GPS should not begin with a description of wars, and with the center of global peace, with its social genome, the driving force and energy of which constitute SPHERONS and o­nly they.

Analogically, the expression of modern chemistry does not begin with writings of the alchemical quests and with Mendeleevs Periodic Table of Elements as the center of chemistry. Similarly, expression of human biology does not begin with the description of its different bodies, and with its biological/genetic code and the human genome as a center of this science. SOCIONOME is a holistic theoretical center of social science in general and GPS in particular, similar to the respective centers of chemistry and human biology.

Therefore, the methodology of expression elected for in the GPS book was from peace, from its theoretical center  SOCIONOME and SPHERONS (spheral classes)  to the periphery, from the logical conclusion to the practical beginning, from the theoretical output to empirical justification, from the whole to the parts, from the knowledge of holistic harmony of global peace to the knowledge of harmony of its parts. Based o­n this, we have identified the following parts of GPS:

PART 1. Opening Peaceful Era of Human History from Harmony: Global Peace Science, SOCIONOME and SPHERONS of Harmony

PART 2. Completion of Era of Military Human History: End of Military Science and Peace from War

This books structure examines GPS and its expression by looking to the unknown future and not to the known past and thereby avoiding truisms and presenting the truly innovative and revolutionary character of GPS. Global peace is unknown unlike war as the known, which is passing and completely unnecessary in the future.

It is interesting and important primarily as the result of science and its practical value, not a research process that led to it, which is important and interesting o­nly to a small group of experts and professionals. GPS is needed, first of all, by the broad masses of the population in terms of practical results. Therefore, GPS must begin with SPHERONS as abstract, logical inferences and go to their historical and empirical justification of practical theory for peace and contra war.

GPS in any form, as true, or as an intermediate knowledge directed to the truth (as is the most appropriate option) will be socially useful, stimulating social scientists who share its origins and purpose to develop it further, and scientists who reject its foundations to create new conceptions and alternative it and to be able to compete with it in theory.

Opening SOCIONOME in social science is equivalent to the discovery of the Periodic Table in chemistry and human genome in biology. Therefore it is the greatest scientific and practical interest for humanity representing a revolution in peace thinking from the social harmony of SPHERONS and this is an logical grain and adequate start for GPS. This approach from the future to the past in life is called "take the bull for the horns", which is the most appropriate for GPS as a revolution of peace thinking.

SPHERONS, as a fruit of prior history of social cognition, crystallizes and constitutes a new, integrated, social science  the science of global peace that combines almost all of the social sciences in a new quality with the definition of "global": sociology, statistics, demography, economics, politics, finance, computer science, history, cultural, humanistic, education and so o­n. They are integrated into a unified framework of holistic science of global social harmony, formed in the ABC of Harmony [1, 2281]. In this book, these sciences are integrated in the creation of the most important social science  the science of global peace (GPS) or peaceloveology. This science provides conscious global peace as the first common good of humanity, which is essential to survival, development and prosperity in the new historical era. GPS gives new universal quality to global social science in general  peacekeeping or peace-loving  to all named its organic parts, raising them to a new historical level of human knowledge. GPS received life from SPHERONS, outlining theory and objective logic which it opens. In this textbook, we deliberately repeat in different terms some of the GPS key ideas, remembering that "repetition is the mother of learning."
