Nonviolence in harmony/peace of varnas/spherons “is the greatest [but still unknown] force [energy] at the disposal of mankind. It is mightier than the mightiest weapon of destruction. Nonviolence [of spherons] is the law of human life.”
“The significant problems we face cannot be solved at the same [partial] level of thinking we were at when we created them.” Therefore, "we should require a substantially new [holistic, non-violent, asymmetric] manner of thinking [by spherons] if mankind is to survive."
“Cybernetics ... will only attain its true stature if it recognises itself as the science
that reaches out [to know]for that which is hidden [the depth of spherons].”
“Gandhi believed that humanity ‘possessed the greatest force of non-violence, love and peace’ and that it and each person are capable of using this force to change themselves and the world. In our violent world, after the atomic bombing of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki civilian population, militarism turned into murderous world state terrorism. For 75 years, its global system has taken humanity near to extinction and we have become a hostage on its nuclear scaffold of genocide and ecocide.
This anti-militarist Manifesto, based on love nonviolence harmony and peace offers an alternative to mainstream, dominant militarism. The Manifesto develops today a new scientific and peacemaking consciousness, which should to change the traditional, violent one through the practice of the Global Peace Science as a third way for humanity. It is not too late to take this path of general and complete disarmament as the scientific alternative of nonkilling and peace.”
Nobel Peace Prize Laureate
“Militarism became world state terrorism in the United States, which launched it 75 years ago with the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, retaining the right of a preventive nuclear strike. This keeps humanity in hostage of militarism, stops its humanistic evolution and threatens its survival during 75 years. only the inevitable fall of militarism in general, and nuclear militarism first will save humanity from this threat and open the path of disarmament within global peace.”
Founder of peace and conflict studies,
Director, Transcend International
“The extremely acute world situation with a nuclear threat, global security, ecological catastrophe and a pandemic requires scientists, especially cyberneticians, to be more radical, responsible and courageous in the development and application of our fundamental science with its unique, holistic inexhaustible potential.”

Introduction. The Emotions/Intuitions Inspiration.
Spherons of Harmony: Societal Reality/Genome of Human/Humanity.
Spherons are the inner sun of human/humanity*, the eternal reactor of their cybernetic interactions, minimal in number, but equal necessary/sufficient in diversity, creating the maximum social diversification of history for survival, ordering/controlling its chaos and ensuring its stable regularity. Spherons generate/determine the eternal life of humankind through their greatest/infinite inner force/energy of harmony, peace, equality, mutual service, love and non-violence. Spherons are an eternal societal structure, social capital and the genetic substance of human/humanity.
Spherons cover the entire population and organize its employment/life from birth to death. Spherons are the only creator/actor of the noosphere, everything that was created and will be created by human/humanity on Earth. Spherons are the eternal consecrated governor of God on Earth as the source of all things in Cosmos. Spherons are the genome of the social life of human/humanity, which determines the internal duration of its history.
Spherons are the common genetic societal denominator of all people, nations/ethnic groups, cultures and civilizations, no matter how different they are. Spherons are an ideal, the only ever-sustainable social platform of their closest partnership on all vectors and the most mutually beneficial cooperation at all levels with the full participation of the global population.
Spherons, first discovered by Mahatma Gandhi about a century ago, as equal varnas of prehistoric India, which provided it with prosperity and world cultural leadership for a millennium, intuitively used by him in the practice of non-violent liberation of India from colonial slavery, became through the CYBS the scientifically conscious property of all humanity. They open before it the Era of True Being in the conscious realm of harmony, peace, equality, partnership service, love and non-violence of all nations.
In the spherons solar fire, all hatred, violence, war, selfishness, evil, the dominance of individual partons/parts: classes, parties, nations, empires, elites, who tried to dominate the whole and subordinate all humanity to their partial volition/selfishness burn/die over time. The spherons’ sun belongs to everyone. It shines, warms and nourishes everyone and can be used to the full extent of its energy only in a conscious, scientifically organized/controlled cybernetic interaction of spherons. This is the eternal task of the future conscious, scientifically illuminated evolution of humanity in its survival and prosperity.
The CYBS Manifesto is the Spherons Manifesto and vice versa. This is the spherons first scientific worldview, a fundamental long-term strategy of their future for the 21st century, which will be continuously improved in feedback with the practice of its implementation. This is the thinking, consciousness and mind of spherons, their goals, historic mission and the Third, nonviolent, conscious Way to them.
The CYBS Manifesto, in its beginning, is a crown of 10 books and 77 projects created by hundreds of GHA members during 15 years of its research and discussions. It cannot be born and develop outside the GHA environment and without its support.
* Anyone who is difficult, hindered or disliked by a holistic duplex language can reduce its pairs to any term from it. See explanation below.
I. Cyberspheronics: Theory/Thinking
1. Features of Cybernetics and Cyberspheronics (CYBS). Each science outlines its object/subject, creates its own conceptual/terminological language of its knowledge/thinking, develops its own manner/method of explanation/understanding and offers its own forms of their description/expression and presentation to the outside world. Mathematics, astronomy, physics, chemistry, biology, sociology, history, psychology and other sciences develop their own special way of cognition in all of the above parameters/dimensions.
Cybernetics and Cyberspheronics are not exceptions from this rule, but its continuation. To understand and master these sciences, it is necessary to master their peculiarity in their parameters. Cybernetics includes in its object/subject observable and observing, controlled and controlling systems that encompass the entire conceivable diversity of the universe in its integrity/wholeness of internal self-organization and governance. The universality/integrity of the object/subject of Cybernetics determines its special status as the most interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary science (Scott, 1996, 2004 and etc.).
Cyberspheronics (CYBS), while maintaining the status of Cybernetics, limits its subject only to social governance and only social systems, which are extremely complex in themselves and for cognition. This determines its highest dignity and, at the same time, its particular difficulty, making Cyberspheronics a unique science and the pinnacle of Cybernetics in these respects. To understand and master CYBS below, a thesis description of all its parameters is proposed, a detailed scan and justification of which are presented in Gandhica (2019).
2. Definitions/Language of Cyberspheronics (CYBS) Spheral Linguistics.
2.1. Definition-1. The CYBS Science. Cyberspheronics is the third-order Sociocybernetics of spheres and spherons, or Cybernetics of societal spheres/spherons within the framework of a pluralistic tetradic philosophy of constructivism (Gandhica, 2019). Cyberspheronics is the science of governance/control (cyber) of spherons and the governance/control (cyber) by spherons in the unity of spherons as an objective/subjective thermodynamic environment, simultaneously observed/observing and governed/governing within their circular causality, consciously organizing its object/subject and consciously self-organizing as its actor according to the measure/level of their knowledge.
2.2. Definition-2. Cyberspheronics Object/Subject. It is the life/existence of society/humanity as the noosphere created by it on Earth. The noosphere is constituted by continuous production/autopoiesis of four necessary/sufficient resources/products: People, Information, Organizations, Things (the totality of created material goods and services): PIOT. The PIOT are produced in four corresponding spheres of social production/autopoiesis: Sociosphere, Infosphere, Orgsphere, Technosphere (the sphere of production of material goods and services) by the respective actors/clusters of people employed in these spheres and therefore called “spherons": Sociospheron, Infospheron, Orgspheron, Technospheron. Spheres/spherons differ on the PIOT products. (Gandhica, 2019).
The spheres/spherons are inextricable duplexes of clusters of social autopoiesis/noosphere: there are no spheres of autopoiesis without its spherons as their sole actors, and vice versa; there are no spherons of autopoiesis without their spheres as their necessary infrastructures. Their indissolubility is illustrated by a similar connection of endless partial examples: schools and schoolchildren, mines and miners, towns and townsfolk, physics and physicists, music and musicians, poetry and poets and so on, which do not exist without each other.
2.3. Definition-3. Spherons of Cyberspheronics (CYBS). Spherons are universal. They include all people from birth to death, without exception. The universality of spherons covers all human/social life/autopoiesis in its entirety, without exception, of all people, in all families, schools, enterprises, cities, regions, countries, continents and within humanity as a whole. The spherons of humanity differ only in spheral employment in the spheres of social production/autopoiesis, which is replaced by people in their life process of transition from employment in one sphere to employment in other areas. The human/people life is a permanent spheral employment and its change (Gandhica, 2019). The humanity spherons are presented in this structural model:
Through universal spheres/spherons, Cyberspheronics provides holistic thinking, design, governance, self-organization, sustainability and survival of noosphere together with thenonviolent/harmonious resolution of its global problems of the highest complexity for any level from the individual to humanity.
2.4. Definition-4. The CYBS Law of Universal Wholeness (LUW). (Or: The CYBS Law of Necessary Spheral Diversity.) This is the defining societal/genetic law of humanity, developing the Ashby’s Law of Requisite Variety or necessary diversity. This law expresses a constant trend of matching the diversity of the governing system to the diversity of the governed system, which is fulfilled from two sides: from the object side and the governance subject. The CYBS LUW determines the necessary ontological diversity of an object (society/humanity) to match with which the governing subject (governance as a whole) diversity should strive as follows.
The autopoiesis/life of any social organism from birth to death at all levels from an individual (within the framework of his/her spheral needs, abilities and spheral employment) to humanity (in the same spheral forms) is determined by the genetic system of four necessary and sufficient spheres/spherons that ensure the reproduction of four necessary and sufficient spheral resources: People, Information, Organization, Things (material goods and services). In abbreviated form: PIOT. The processes of production, distribution, exchange and consumption of PIOT constitute together with them the corresponding spheres/spherons: Sociosphere/Sociospheron producing P; Infosphere/Infospheron producing I; Orgsphere/Orgspheron producing O; Technosphere/Technospheron producing T. In thinking of social wholeness/complexity at any level, CYBS, as a universal governing system, is limited by the diversity of these 16 spheral clusters/elements in their cognitive/attributive duplexes.
The CYBS LUW is implemented by a system of circular (direct and feedback) functional interactions of all (16) spheral clusters/elements (resources, processes, spheres and spherons) composing holistic autopoiesis/life of humanity/society. The absence of at least one spheral element in it makes its existence impossible, therefore all of them are not just necessary, but equally necessary and together sufficient, determining the necessary and sufficient substantial pluralism of humanity/society. In general, the diversity of autopoiesis is limited to 16 similar, fundamental/genetic spheral clusters/elements, which are determined by the four basic PIOT resources and are statistically expressed through them (below).
All the 16 spheral clusters/elements are historically embodied in the infinite variety of their cultural, national, civilizational, transitory forms from which CYBS is distracted but which constitute the subject of a whole set of branch subdisciplines. CYBS performs a fundamental ontological, cognitive and organisational trans- and interdisciplinary function in relation to them.
The CYBS LUW integrates and develops also all other laws of the first and second order Cybernetics (observable and observing systems) providing through 16 spheral societal clusters/elements the “necessary and sufficient internal diversity” of the all systems viability/autopoiesis within society/humanity.
The CYBS LUW creates the integration/synergy of fragmented disciplines of traditional Cybernetics, overcoming their fragmentation and mutual disorganization. At the highest level of synergy of Cybernetics in CYBS, it produces knowledge of genetic/societal wholeness without which no scientific/system global governance and a democratic solution to any world problem of society/humanity is possible.
2.5. Definition-5. CYBS Holistic Subject/Object in Statics. CYBS ontology. Structural Model. The CYBS subject/object is the planetary noosphere of the social production/autopoiesis within the biosphere (Vernadsky, 1931) and other spheres of the Earth, composed of four societal spheres/spherons. In accordance with the law of universal wholeness, the noosphere/humanity can be represented by the following structural model along with the noosphere fundamental values, ensuring its survival/stability:
The spheres/spherons are the societal thermodynamic substances of hybrid reality of the noosphere/humanity highest integrity/complexity. The movement to the discovery, cognition and use of spheres/spherons crowns and integrates the development of Cybernetics of the first two orders. In the spheres/spherons of third-order cybernetics, it enters a new level of wholeness/complexity. In spheres/spherons optimizing holistic “assembly of subjects/objects of development” of society/humanity, third-order cybernetics finds self-identification and a synergistic synthesis of “self-developing polysubjective reflective-active environments”, ensuring “harmony of hierarchical and network models ... in three-dimensional space”. (Lepskiy, 2018; WOSC, 2020).
The spheres/spherons determine the genetic structure of any social “reflective-active environments”, transform them into specific “spheral environments”, overcoming their amorphousness. The spheres/spherons remove the problem of the subjectless/structureless development of the noosphere/humanity in their entire history. Spherons are the societal, genetic, higher subjectivity of humanity at all levels, at all times and in all cultures and civilizations.
2.6. Definition-6. Structural Model: Cyberspheronics Holistic Dynamics. The following structural-functional model of the sociocybernetic genome (socionome), which presents the societal spheres/spherons dynamic harmony in autopoiesis/noosphere, expresses so:
More details on SOCIONOME see: The ABC of Harmony for World Peace, 2012, 38–43:
The sociocybernetic genome is a model of global humanity as a nonlinear thermodynamic system of spheres/spherons (Avery, Semashko, 2017).
2.7. Definition-7. Cyberspheronics (CYBS) Holistic Environmentalism. The noosphere/humanity environment has two levels: Earth (earthly) and Cosmos (outer space). The earth's environment is represented by its four spheres, known since ancient times: lithosphere, hydrosphere, atmosphere and biosphere, in which the noosphere or anthroposphere of humanity is its part. The terrestrial environment that determines the existence of society/humanity on the planet is called ecology, and its spheres are called ecological.
The Cosmos environment is represented, first of all, by the cosmic luminary that defines the Earth and its biosphere, the Sun, as well as the Earth's ionosphere and all its outer cosmic universe, in which Earth is only its microscopic part, the existence of which is completely determined by the cosmic whole and the laws of its evolution. If environmental spheres almost completely came under the influence (rather negative/destructive than positive/constructive) of society/humanity, then the cosmic sphere is only explored and is still far from its real influence. (Ecimovic, 2017).
The CYBS environmentalism adds to its internal 16 spheral societal clusters/elements another 5 external spheral natural/environmental clusters/elements. They include four terrestrial, ecological spheres (litho-, hydro-, atmo-, bio-) and one cosmic sphere integrated with the Sun. Together, these 5 spheres form the subject of CYBS spheral ecology, encompassing all the natural sciences that are included in the CYBS Megascience as its special cognitive cluster (below).
The concepts of 21 clusters/element of the CYBS object/subject as well as the concepts of their structure, interaction and evolution in social space/time, exhaust the fundamental layer of spheral linguistics in this integral science, on which the operational layer of its spheral language historically grows and modifies.
3. Duplex/Binary Method of the CYBS Tetranet Thinking. The utmost scale of the CYBS language, its integrity/complexity requires special attention to the simplicity and economy of its use. To do this, use the Gandhica “Duplex/Binary Method of Linguistic Self-Organization of Tetranet Thinking”, implemented by the pair use of the CYBS conceptual language through many duplexes of the Gandhica tetranet thinking categories. In duplexes of spheral linguistics, categories complement each other, outline the scale of wholeness and its extreme boundaries, or highlight its different meanings in synonymous situations, such as production/autopoiesis, etc. Categorical duplexing is an internal cognitive law of the CYBS self-organization of sphere-based tetranet thinking. In its spheral linguistics, it is represented by many categorical duplexes, which are lexically expressed through a slash (/).
They constitute the СYBS cognitology, which is distinguished by such advantages as economy/compactness of thinking units, their quantitative/mathematical expression in terms of spheral statistics and their structural modeling in the matrix fractals (below). CYBS cognitology integrates the qualitative and quantitative aspects of integrity/complexity thinking, providing it with fundamental scientific knowledge and wide access to digitalization (below).
4. Spheral Statistics: the Holistic CYBS Unique Mathematical Advantage. The spheral statistics (SS) includes traditional statistics (TS) and based on it. Both of them have their own logic of cognition and a paradigm of thinking. TS embodies the simplest and most accessible trend of empirical, inductive knowledge from parts to the whole. SS realizes the most complex and least accessible vector of theoretical, deductive knowledge from the whole to its fundamental, spheral parts, constituting its integrity. TS provides the SS theoretical spheral indices with empirical content/meaning. The SS classifies, compresses, organizes, and focuses the infinite and chaotic space of empirical indices of national statistics and their meanings. SS provides the technology of an ordered system composition/decomposition (aggregation/disaggregation) of the entire chaotic set of the TS indices. The advantages/limitations and the mutual complementarity of the two statistics are disclosed in detail in Gandhica (2019). Here we confine ourselves only to the merits of the SS and its key instrumental, mathematical and technological role in CYBS.
If the TS main advantage is its connection with reality, with the historical context in all its details, then the SS main advantage is its penetration into the eternal fundamental and deep/genetic laws/structures of integral humanity, which ensure its life, survival, stability in its entire history from the beginning to the end. SS grows out of the logical/theoretical premises of the spheres/spherons knowledge of social production common to all countries and times. This allows the SS to become global/universal. At the same time, it cannot and does not seek to replace/supplant traditional statistics, which make up its nourishing empirical soil and source. The SS can only rely on it, contribute to its development and strengthening, and raise it to the level of fundamental science, while preserving all its necessary national characteristics. In the general methodological sense, the SS acts as a metalanguage and metalinguistics in relation to the TS object language and linguistics.
The SS emergence more than 40 years ago, its first steps and operations of composition and decomposition of indicators of two statistics are considered in a number of books (Semashko, 1992; 1999; 2002 and others, especially in Gandhica). Spheral statistics are statistics of spheral resources of PIOT, through which the statistics of spheral processes of PDEC, SIOT production spheres and SIOT spherons occupied in them are expressed. The spheron statistics (P) is the center of spheral statistics that defines peripheral/infrastructure spheral statistics. The foundation of spheral statistics is the basic matrix of spheral indices of PIOT 4x4 in size:
P1 + P2 + P3 + P4
I1 + I2 + I3 + I4
O1 + O2 + O3 + O4
T1 + T2 + T3 + T4
On its basis, an almost infinite system of derivatives detailed fractal matrices of another dimension is constructed according to a simple algorithm: 4х4n, where n is a series of natural numbers in modifications from +1, or from –1, or others. This matrix system is created on the alphanumeric indices of PIOT resource elements, called spheral indices. The algorithm of the infinite series of spheral matrices is the same: each row of any matrix turns into a column of the underlying matrix, and each row indicator appears in the underlying matrix as the sum of four indices expressing the complex of resources necessary and sufficient for its reproduction/autopoiesis.
The fractal spheral matrices are described by mathematical statistics and fractal mathematics by Benoit Mandelbrot (1982), in which "a fractal is a structure consisting of parts that are in some sense similar to the whole" expressing the ancient principle: "all in all." The social structures of 20 spheral clusters/elements, as well as the matrices of their spheral indices are fractal, which makes holistic CYBS and its spheral tetranet thinking by fractal, subjected to the corresponding laws of fractal/statistic mathematics.
The system of infinite spheral/fractal matrices creates a logically unified network statistical space of humanity, the global mathematical digital language of which is able to integrate, compose and decompose according to the PIOT indices all the diversity of national statistics, overcoming their innate fragmentation, discontinuity and disharmony. Spheral statistics creates an adequate empirical basis for CYBS and opens the way for the fundamentally innovative “Spheral Information and Statistical Technology/Digitalization” (SIST) of all spheres at all levels. The use of CYBS together with its SIST provides effective global harmonious governance of spherons in accordance with their values and priorities at all their levels.
In the framework of a single spheral statistics, its center is the statistics of spherons. Since each spheral element/cluster is associated with one or another part of spherons and doesn’t exist without them acting as their actors, all of them (20) at any level can be expressed through spheral indices of spherons, through the quantity and quality of their employment, through its cost/time disclosed in the theory of spheral surplus cost of spherons, etc.
5. CYBS as a Single Megascience of Humanity for its Spheral Third Way in the XXI Century. Spherons as observable, observing and self-governing systems are the connecting center of cybernetics of all three of its orders, making third-order cybernetics of spheres/spherons their conscious and self-organizing beginning for its previous orders. Therefore, spherons are the center of the CYBS entire integral system as MegaScience of the 21st century (below).
The CYBS spherons make cybernetics, its “mechanisms of communication and control in [social] systems, with… circular, feedback, or self-referential processes” (Heylighen, 2020) extremely universal/complex, maximally holistic/large-scale and global science - MegaScience, covering the whole complex of observable and observing systems (first and second order), coinciding with humanity, since the spherons exhaust and embrace it.
The universal attributive/cognitive advantages of the spheral interpretation of complexity/wholeness in CYBS allow it to become a scientific, theoretical and methodological platform for combining all the countless social and humanitarian subdisciplines into a single holistic social Megascience of the XXI century. It provides a unified scientific solution to all global problems of humanity, ensuring its survival and liberation from all systemic crises of its integrity created by traditional, partial thinking, ignoring wholeness that is cognitively inaccessible to it.
CYBS is the connecting center of Megascience of the XXI century, providing a breakthrough in the humanity scientific knowledge, consciousness and thinking to a fundamentally new, substantial level of spheres/spherons genetic reality. The CYBS spheres/spherons unite all branches and all industry groups of the population; therefore, it becomes a unified platform for all industry disciplines of human cognition. All branch (social and natural) sciences in one way or another relate to and study a person and various partial groups/communities of people, which are all parts of universal spherons, whose cybernetics is studied by CYBS. It creates a unique historical opportunity to integrate all knowledge in hundreds of its modifications into a single scientific organism Megascience of the XXI century.
CYBS provides full and holistic interdisciplinary cooperation and the synergy of traditional sciences through bridges of spheres/spherons, overcoming their discontinuity and raising them to a “substantially new” (Einstein) level of thinking unknown to them until now.
CYBS as Megascience will be a unique breakthrough of human knowledge in the XXI century that will free global society from all the problems that threaten its existence. But in this Megascience, the priorities of scientific knowledge are differently distributed than in the past. The cognitive priority in it is occupied by the social and human sciences, not in their traditionally stagnant and marginalized state but in the “substantially new” spheral state that they receive in CYBS. Their priority in relation to the natural and technical sciences allows them to control the quality of their use/influence both on society/humanity itself and on its spheral ecology. Their priority is realized by the brilliant Socrates testament of the cognitive priority of humanity, which has not yet been realized: “Know thyself,” which is achieved only with the discovery of spherons and the emergence on their basis of CYBS.
Similar Megascience excludes any existence of military science (of course, not immediately but from the moment of complete disarmament) designed to destroy people. But all useful military achievements for the peaceful life of humanity, of course, are preserved and integrated in the CYBS technical sciences complex.
6. The True Level/‘Stature’ of Cybernetics: The Hidden Spheres/Spherons Science. Fifty years ago (1972), the famous German philosopher Gotthard Gunter predicted the scientific perspective of Cybernetics: it "will only attain its true stature if it recognises itself as the science that reaches out for that which is hidden." Cybernetics reached this level of true fundamental science in the CYBS, third-order Cybernetics of spheres/spherons, which (CYBS) reveals this “hidden”, genetic, societal, unknown to humankind “substance” (Einstein) of Cybernetics. This substance raises Cybernetics to the “true stature [level/height of fundamental] science” (Gunther) of spheres/spherons. Nothing other than the hidden, global spheres/spherons of humanity, truly/fundamentally scientific in Cyberneticsdoes not exist. Therefore, only through them can Cybernetics in the Cyberspheronics face become the truly holistic, “transdisciplinary and metadisciplinary” (Scott, 2019) MegaScience of the new century.
The CYBS as the unified/holistic, interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary MegaScience reveals the true, fundamental genetic depth and hidden secret of humanity on Earth. The human/humanity has not yet known it as Socrates bequeathed, but humankind has already been opened to it by GHA’s intellectual efforts during 15 years and is presented in the first form, far from perfect, in our Spherons CYBS Manifesto.
7. Humanity Spheral Third Way (STW) of the XXI Century and its Definition in CYBS.
7.1. General characteristic. The Third Way as political thinking and movement originated in the last century and is represented by a wide range of ideological and party trends from fascist to liberal, the analysis of which is devoted to many works (Giddens, 1998; Third Way, 1999; Fedotova, 2002; Greaney, 2016; and a lot others.). The Third Way is an attempt to find more effective methods and ways of responding to the new challenges of humanity, to which the traditional ideologies of capitalism/liberalism and communism/Marxism are powerless to answer due to their obsolescence and worthlessness.
The Third Way of Cyberspheronics is the “SPHERAL Third Way” (STW), an alternative from its traditional variants—European, American, and Russian—which we will combine with the concept of “Traditional Third Way” (TTW). Comparison of TTW and STW by basic attributes/qualities, free from unnecessary details, can be presented in the following table, which expresses their 18 key differences and the STW advantages.

7.2. The STW Spheral Attributes. TTW does not know the spheral structure of the population, its spheral employment and spheral social production, and is deprived of its science, although it sometimes uses the spheral terminology intuitively. STW, built on the fundamental science of CYBS, creates its consciousness on spheres/spherons, starting with the priority social sphere.
1. The STW Sociosphere. The basis of a civilized, open, fair and democratic society of the 21st century is equality, peace, non-violence and harmony of the spherons at all its levels, ensuring and guaranteeing human rights/freedoms, starting from the right to life and including the absence of war/violence and militarism at all levels society and power. The social priority is children and the harmonious development of the individual instead of the economy and militarism. Priority development of social infrastructure is housing, ecology, education, healthcare, sports, recreation, etc.
2. The STW Infosphere. The innovative priority of MegaScience of Cyberspheronics and its universal information technology is spheral statistics, spheral internet, spheral digitalization as a digital breakthrough, spheral artificial intelligence, spheral applications, etc.
3. The STW Orgsphere. Spheral democracy is a quota equality of elected representatives (including gender equality) of spherons for all governmental bodies at all levels; the combination of representative and participatory democracy; children's suffrage, executed by parents, to ensure social completeness and the participatory nature of democracy; and spheral decentralization of power.
4. The STW Technosphere/Economics. Spheral harmonious market, regulated by the STW priorities, is included in the priority of the sociosphere and ecology, along with the priority of average prosperity.
Capitalism and communism are alternative pathologies of the last century, as equally militaristic, disharmonious and deadly for humanity as extreme obesity and extreme exhaustion. The TTW does not constitute and is not viable. The only fundamental alternative is offered only by STW of CYBS in a holistic, non-violent, socio-economic system of human spheres/spherons. The CYBS is a holistic scientific and harmonious worldview of the spherons STW, alternative to all unscientific, antagonistic militaristic ideologies of the past.
8. The CYBS Holistic System of Values/Human Rights. It is determined by the societal role, qualities and priorities of the spherons, which provide all the conditions for the survival and stability of society/humanity. It includes the following humanistic values/rights: life, love, peace, harmony, non-violence, truth, freedom, equality, fraternity, law, complete/truth democracy and happiness. This axiological system integrates humanistic human values/rights that are verified by long historical experience and excludes the opposite, anti-humanistic values practiced by violent and totalitarian empires: death, hatred, war, disharmony, violence, lies, slavery, inequality, enmity, arbitrariness, dictatorship, misfortune and its vicious derivatives. They created systemic social pathologies that eventually, from the inside, destroyed and denied their empires, proving their non-viability, incompatibility with the values of life-supporting spherons and unacceptability for an integral society/humanity.
The spherons axiological system is based on the priority right of human/humanity to life/peace, excluding war/militarism, as detailed in the relevant GHA Declaration (Semashko, 2017).
9. Spherons: Social Priorities Hierarchy/Network. Spherons/people have the highest priority of wholeness as only this societal resource creates/produces all of them (PIOT), including itself, i.e. all societal integrity in its entirety and complexity. Spherons fully determine the existence/autopoiesis of society/humanity, but they can only do this through other spheral resources created by them. Therefore, the absence of any of them makes the existence of benevolent society/humanity impossible, therefore they are equally necessary for it. Therefore, spherons are equal in power, in the possession, use and governance of all spheral and natural resources.
This is the spherons highest law of organizational/managerial equality, which ensures/determines the social equality of other forms and begins to consciously act in society only with its scientific knowledge in the CYBS and with its constitutional fixation at all levels of democratic power. It provides a quota equal distribution of all power equally among elected representatives of spherons.
The spherons priority determines among people the priority of children, the quality of which determines the quality of society as a whole, including the highest quality of attitude toward the older generation, who gave birth, raised and reared grateful children. Their priority is ensured by the “Children's Suffrage Executed by Parents” (Semashko, 2004).
The spherons priority determines the full gender equality and partnership (Eisler, 1994), the full gender balance of power as the most optimal condition for social autopoiesis in general and its governance at all levels.
All of these societal priorities determine and create all the real conditions for the first humanistic holistic priority of the comprehensive and harmonious development of each individual. This was proclaimed, but never achieved in the past as a result of the dominance of other priorities: inequality, violence, power, profit, etc.This is the whole hierarchy/network of the spherons social priorities.
10. The Ineradicable Vice of Traditional Governance/Authority/Democracy. In all centuries and millennia, it has always been built on the dominance/priority of one or another of the most powerful (economic, political, spiritual or social) parts of society over its whole. This key/structural flaw of partial control gives rise to all its other fundamental and irremovable flaws in history: inequality of all kinds, violence, militarism, corruption, selfishness of all forms and injustice. Such partial/egoistic control/power was successful, at best, only in solving partial problems, but it remained ineffective/destructive with respect to the whole and inevitably led it to death along with its dominant partial power. Global problems created by partial power/administration, including any democracy, are insoluble for TTW, which was noted by Einstein 70 years ago (below) and proved the unsuccessful historical experience of solving these problems. The most striking example of the last century is the powerlessness of democracy in regard to nuclear weapons, the race of which it generously finances; only accelerating the approach of humanity to the global genocide/ecocide, reducing the probability of its survival to a minimum, to 100 seconds (Mecklin, 2020). The traditional governance of the ruling political systems is aimed at strengthening the interests of one of its parts (class, party, elite, etc.) to the detriment and expense of the whole interests. It mistakenly defines this part as the generative principle of the whole, which deforms it and leads it to inevitable death.
11. The Cyberspheronics (CYBS) Mission: Holistic/Spheral Democracy for the Spheral Third Way. The CYBS first social need and mission is to reorganize the democratic way of self-government in the interests of society as a whole at all levels from local to global, in order to ensure its survival/sustainability by eliminating the root vice of traditional power. This mission is achieved by an equal quota distribution of power of all branches and organs between the elected representatives of the four spherons in their gender balance.
Cyberspheronics is the necessary holistic scientific thinking/consciousness/knowledge of spherons, transforming them from a spontaneous, unconscious “actor in oneself” into a conscious, scientifically minded democratic “actor for oneself”, expressing by Kant terms. Therefore, spherons and Cyberspheronics are inseparable from each other in their true mutual necessity/sufficiency as a necessary, integral actor/subject and its integral consciousness/thinking. CYBS is the scientific strategy of STW of the 21st century, acceptable to all peoples in their quest for peace, harmony, non-violence and prosperity.
Cyberspheronics is not “EGO thinking/governance” of a selfish/partial nation, party or person, leading to self-destruction of humanity/noosphere, but “ECO thinking/governance” of its survival and prosperity on Earth. This is its mission.
12. The CYBS History. Cyberspheronics (CYBS) has come a long and complex evolutionary path, starting in 1992 with the first fundamental book Spheral Approach (Semashko), devoted to spheres/spherons (societal groups of the population engaged in the spheres of social production/autopoiesis, where they are also called the traditional term "spheral classes") and their spheral statistics. Its next step was Tetrasociology, which received the support of RC51 Sociocybernetics (Semashko, 2002; Scott, 2002).
CYBS develops and enriches the initial fundamental ideas of the cybernetics founders: Norbert Wiener, William Ashby, Heinz Foerster, David Stuart, Gregory Bateson, Warren McCulloch, Gordon Pask, Robert Park, Stafford Beer, Umberto Maturana and many others. These ideas received a new incentive for development and special significance in the works on Sociocybernetics, concentrated in the corresponding Research Committee (PC51) of the ISA, since its establishment in 1998, as well as in international cybernetics societies, which is reflected in the historical works of Bernard Scott (1983 – 2019).
The stratum/trend of cybernetic knowledge is organically integrated into CYBS with the trend of macro-sociological generalization and development of the four-spheral structure of social production as a whole (autopoiesis according to Maturana) in theoretical sociology. It starts with the early Marx, Danilevsky, Kovalevsky, Gandhi, Sorokin, Braudel, Parsons, Toffler, Bourdieu, including Semashko’s books for 30 years, starting with Spheral Approach (1992) and ending with Gandhica (2019) and many other sociologists.
The concept of “Third Order Sociocybernetics” of spheres and spherons was first introduced with the participation of Bernard Scott in the GHA collective book “The ABC of Harmony” (2012).
13. CYBS as a “substantially new manner of thinking” according to Einstein. The CYBS conception/paradigm implements the Albert Einstein great testament more than 70 years ago for the humanity survival, which has not been fulfilled so far. He wrote: “The significant problems we face cannot be solved at the same level of thinking we were at when we created them.” Therefore, "we shall require a substantially new [holistic and nonviolent, asymmetric] manner of thinking if mankind is to survive." Unfortunately, over 70 years, humanity was unable to find, define and practically use “substantially new thinking” for its survival.
Einstein admitted the possibility of “a world government” only based on such “substantially new thinking” but not on the basis of traditional, torn, partial and militaristic thinking that deprives humanity of survival, unity and solidarity. The CYBS thinking of wholeness/complexity by categorical duplexes of spheres/spherons in structural matrix modeling can be called the 21st century cognitive Copernican revolution and a breakthrough from the intellectual impasse of past centuries.
14. CYBS as the thinking of Gandhian "greatest force of non-violence of mankind." The CYBS theory continues and develops at a new scientific level the greatest discovery and practice of Mahatma Gandhi’s non-violence through the use of his “Newtonian law of the greatest force of mankind non-violence” in his varnas/spherons. Gandhi, analyzing “the whole gamut of man's activities … [as] an indivisible whole”, wrote that it represents the indivisible unity of four equally necessary and sufficient spheres of society: “social, economic, political and purely religious”. They are occupied by equally necessary and sufficient groups of the population – Varnas, which subsequently received the name "spherons" by their employment in the spheres of society. “All [four] varnas [spherons] are equal, for the community depends no less on one than on another,” therefore they are equally necessary and sufficient together, determining the systems wholeness of every society.
“Varna is not a human invention, but an immutable law of nature—the statement of [genetic] tendency that is ever present and at work like Newton's law of gravitation. Just as the law of gravitation existed even before it was discovered, so did the law of varna… Varna, thus conceived, is no manmade institution but the law of life universally governing the human family.Fulfillment of the law would make life livable, would spread peace and content, end all clashes and conflicts, [and] put an end to starvation and pauperization… The idea of superiority or inferiority is wholly repugnant to it [varna]. ThoughthelawofvarnaisaspecialdiscoveryofsomeHinduseer,ithas universal application... Varna has nothing to do with caste. Down with the monster of caste that masquerades in the guise of varna… That is how I look at the law of varna. The world may ignore it today but it will have to accept it in the time to come. It ordains that everyone shall fulfill the law of one's being... Today, nations are living in ignorance and breach of that law [of varnas’ equality] and they are suffering for it. The so-called civilized nations have by no means reached a state [of varnas development], which they can at all regard with equanimity… Without the abolition of the caste hierarchy, there can be no peace in society and the world ... When we revive universal human equality [of varnas/spherons]... When that day comes we shall have peace on earth and goodwill to men.” (Gandhi, 140-183).
15. The CYBS Social Need. Its acuteness is set, on the one hand, by the high level of globalization of all spheres of world social production, which determines the decisive role of its integrity and global governance of it; and, on the other hand, by the systemic impotence of traditional partial social science, torn into hundreds of industry disciplines, to solve global integrity problems. This systemic weakness is demonstrated by the entire crisis situation associated with the COVID-19 pandemic at all levels: global, regional - the destruction/crisis of the EU solidarity, national - the crisis of separate countries, especially the USA, etc.
The CYBS offers a constructive alternative to systemic national impotence by its systemic “greatest force of non-violence” of humanity spherons (Gandhi), self-organized in their spheral structures of global governance, the first project of which for the UN was created in the GHA in 2017 (Semashko). The priority development of this alternative at the international level fully meets the constantly exacerbating social needs of humanity inherent in CYBS, which today does not have any other scientific competitive alternatives.
CYBS creates and provides in the XXI century “cybernetic consciousness as a new noospheric phenomenon of the global information space” (Tonkonogov, 2018).
16. The CYBS Dual, Peaceful/Military Use. In the transition period, until the completion of complete and general disarmament, there remains a dangerous possibility of militaristic use of the CYBS by one or another country or group of countries in order to achieve world domination by non-violent means. Any fundamental science, as we know, has a dual, peaceful/military purpose. CYBS is no exception from this danger.
17. International Monitoring of the CYBS MegaScience Development/Use. There can be two effective and compatible/complementary ways to control the CYBS development/use and, thus, preventing its militaristic use in the "national egoistic interests" of the most powerful countries or their blocks, as was the case, for example, with atomic energy in 1945 and subsequent years.
17.1. The creation of a single “Global Academy of CYBS MegaScience” (GACM) with regional and national branches under the auspices of the UN/UNESCO or the International Bank and the IMF, capable to finance the CYBS MegaScience project and exercising international control over it. The GACM will be an excellent example of international scientific and humanitarian cooperation.
17.2. The establishment within the framework of world civil society of the “International Association of Cyberspheronics” (IAC), uniting, on the one hand, international associations of scientists, primarily in cybernetics, such as the American Society for Cybernetics (ASC, 1964), World Organization for Systems and Cybernetics (WOSC, 1969), ISA Sociocybernetics (RC51, 1998), The International Academy for Systems and Cybernetic Sciences (IASCYS, 2016), and others such as that; and, on the other, the leading peacemaking organizations ICAN, NAPF, IPRA, IPPNW, UN2020 and the like. They are able to effectively continue the initial international development of CYBS, which was carried out in the GHA for 15 years, and better and faster than others to assess the scientific and humanitarian value of CYBS, because they are aimed not at the military, but at the peaceful development of cybernetic science and humanity. The wider CYBS will be involved in international scientific and public control, the less will be the chances of its militaristic and destructive use.
18. The CYBS Projects National Experimental Verification. The international bodies of GACM and IAC will ensure wide international verification of each CYBS project in the specific conditions of separate countries and regions as well as in the respective national universities and academies of sciences. This will facilitate integration of the CYBS projects into separate countries and will raise the level of each national science to the highest level of global Cyberspheronics MegaScience. To this goal, these bodies create in different countries a network of the CYBS International Research Centers/Laboratories (IRCLs), which will provide scientific and social experimental testing of CYBS projects, especially those previously created by the GHA with their necessary modernization.
19. The CYBS Manifesto: Humanity True Self-knowledge Beginning. The CYBS Manifesto is a manifesto of the scientific worldview/consciousness of the humanity spherons, i.e. humanity as a whole. Humanity did not know such self-awareness yet. Only in its cybernetic form did human consciousness find its adequate, holistic expression. This became possible only at the beginning of the XXI century; it did not work out before. Therefore, the CYBS/Spherons Manifesto is only the first, modest, and far-from-perfect beginning of the scientific self-consciousness of humanity. It will inevitably expand, correct, deepen and develop in all directions throughout the subsequent evolution/history of human/humanity, as long as it exists. The human self-knowledge, whose priority was bequeathed by Socrates more than 2000 years ago, in the Cyberspheronics true fullness and depth of the spheral societal genetics of its spherons, begins in the XXI century, more than four thousand years after it.
20. The CYBS Truth Three Simple Conditions/Steps. For more than 40 years of CYBS’s difficult development, CYBS has accumulated vast experience in verification and individual conviction in its truth, which is integrated in three simple actions/steps available to every literate person, especially to every open-minded, honest and true scientist.
First step. Carefully read the integral and integral/crowning book of CYBS Gandhica (2019), created within the GHA by 82 coauthors from 25 countries based on numerous scientific researches and publications over the past 40 years. Recall that the proposed CYBS Manifesto is nothing more than the multidimensional focus of Gandhica and its quintessence.
Second step. Write a review of this book with an assessment of its scientific, methodological, social and political significance for humanity and the development of its knowledge, which becomes most vivid in comparison with the traditional paradigms of classical and post-non-classical science. This review, which is publicly available, will be a measure of the intelligence, depth and quality of the CYBS and will increase the understanding of each reviewer.
Third step. Complete a Statistical Scientific Research of Spherons (SSRS) of any city, institution, region, country according to the example of their statistical studies of 76 countries in Gandhica and the choice of available statistics for any period of time, for example, for the past year: 2019, 2018, 2017, etc. only through an individual, independent SSRS is intellectual possession of the societal substance/reality of sociogenetic cybernetic spherons possible.
Over the decades of SSRS in the GHA and before, CYBS’s methodology/technique was found and tested and simplified. It is presented in the book Gandhica, in Chapter 1, in three small paragraphs: 1.4.2., 1.4.3., and 1.4.4., on 5 pages: 32-37 (https://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=848). Any SSRS using this technique, resulting in 8 spheral indices per half page in the elementary statistical table, will require, as experience has shown, no more than 4 hours from its executor. Moreover, half of this time will take mastery of the technique and search for statistics on the Internet. You can compare and add your table to the tables of spherons of other countries and cities in Gandhica. Then these tables can be collected and published in a special book, “The CYBS Statistics,” which can be produced annually both at the UN global level and at the national level. These statistics will demonstrate the dynamics of global and national spherons as the primary empirical basis for all other cybernetic studies. Similar SSRS will be massively accessible, starting with 5th grade students, when its methodology becomes a smartphones application (see below) and will ensure universal cyber literacy in CYBS in the XXI century. The professional cyberneticians can and should start/launch this necessary and inevitable literacy. Without knowledge of spherons through SSRS, there can be no Cyberspheronics as MegaScience; there can be no “substantially new manner of thinking”; there can be no mastery of the “greatest force of non-violence”; there cannot be implementation of CYBS in any practical project.
II. Cyberspheronics: Pragmatics/Business
1. The CYBS Pragmatics/Praxeology and its Economic Efficiency. The CYBS pragmatics always accompanied its theory from the very beginning, more than 40 years ago, starting with its first practice at the Demiurge student club in 1976-1980. The CYBS highest practical goal is to ensure humanity’s survival and save the noosphere from the global ecocide/genocide in the XXI century. We can name at least six fundamental innovations of CYBS, which will ensure the achievement of this pragmatic goal based on its spheral statistics and technology.
1.1. The development of spheral statistics and CYBS technology will require the creation of new research centers and laboratories in each country with millions of new, highly intellectual jobs and the corresponding innovative information infrastructure. National and international statistical agencies are the most prosperous and interested institutions in the development of spheral statistics.
1.2. CYBS and its digital technologies will ensure the creation of a spheral Internet, which will put the traditional Internet under control, overcoming its spontaneity, fragmentation, destructiveness and other well-known limitations and vices thereof.
1.3. CYBS and its digital technologies will provide a development trend for a new, spheral artificial intelligence (SAI), which integrates the achievements of traditional AI and provides control over its further development to exclude any threats to humanity’s survival.
1.4. CYBS and its digital technologies will provide a theoretical and information platform for a new, non-violent democracy that excludes war, violence, militarism and the arms race. This democracy will be able to establish itself, with appropriate mass enlightenment/education and strategic global governance training, over the next 50 years or by the end of the XXI century, as the GHA studies have shown (GPS, 2016; Gandhica, 2019; etc.).
1.5. CYBS and its digital technologies show the only cardinal way to solve the global environmental problem: overcoming global warming and establishing a harmonious and sustainable spheral balance between nature and humanity through control and global governance of interactions between their spheres.
1.6. CYBS and its digital technologies open up the production of an almost unlimited class of applications for individual smartphones of two key varieties. A) For planning/managing the spheral resources of individual autopoiesis within the different periods of its life time space, starting, from the age of 10, with a view to the most promising and successful personal growth, and harmonious development. B) For leaders of any rank and organization of any scale for individual design, comparison and selection of the most optimal development strategies for these organizations through the harmonization of their spheres/spherons. Any similar application for an individual smartphone is a pocket-sized artificial intelligence (PAI) device of the highest level as an indispensable tool for any thinking individual who cares about the most effective development of both his own personality and the organization he or she leads. The PAI will ensure the interaction of AI and humans at all levels of a cybernetic society (Tonkonogov, 2018).
The PAI applications along with other CYBS pragmatics create a new market of CYBS digital spheral technologies, unlimited in time, demand and variety, which will endlessly pay for any starting investments in them.
These and many other CYBS innovations, private and derivative from them, provide a breakthrough for business and global governance in this direction to a qualitatively different level of business/pragmatic, social and economic efficiency.
2. The CYBS Projects Total Number. For more than 40 years of CYBS, there have been about 300 industry and regional projects in all spheres and at different levels. These projects started since the spherons structure was first tested in the student club of harmonious development "Demiurge" in 1976 – 1980 (Semashko, 2017). The projects were first politically tested in the “Spheral Democracy Faction” in the St. Petersburg first democratic Parliament, “Petrosoviet”, in 1992 – 1993 (Semashko, 2010). The lists of similar projects are published in many GHA books listed in the bibliography. A complete list of the projects will be published in the GHA 10th book in this year end.
3. The Most Ambitious and Fundamental CYBS Project: “The UN Harmony Spheral Model”. This project was created by the GHA in 2017 to participate in the projects contest of the Swedish “Global Governance Foundation”. “The UN Harmony Spherons Structure” (Semashko, 2017), presented below, summarizes this project. This model assumes that each United Nations state-member has 8 national emissaries in the UN (in gender balance by 2 representatives from each of the four national spheres), which would amount to 1,600 members of its General Assembly for 200 UN state-members. It could democratically fulfill the functions of “a world government” (Einstein), providing global peace from spherons harmony at all levels from municipal to global.
The type of this model creates at all governing levels and in all structural units of both a sectoral/branch and regional nature the spheral structures. Examples of many of them are presented in the list of CYBS projects.
4. Holistic MegaScience: Full Social Responsibility. Through holistic Cyberspheronics/Megascience, for the first time in history, humanity will receive such scientific knowledge that it will be able to take and bear full scientific social responsibility for the quality of all autopoietic structures and processes of humankind/noosphere, ensuring its survival and prosperity for all people. In contrast to the rupture of traditional scientific knowledge/thinking in hundreds of partial “subdisciplines” devoid of a unifying cybernetic platform of spheres/spherons, whose social responsibility was practically zero for 75 years, when the threat of a global nuclear ecocide/genocide arose, CYBS for the first time opens such an opportunity of world/universal responsibility for all of humanity. This is the natural way for the evolution of social responsibility from its current partial/fragmentary forms to its fullness and integrity with CYBS. The historical path of evolution of social responsibility is considered in detail in the writings of Matjaž Mulej (2016, 2019 and others) and his Institute for Social Responsibility. The full social responsibility basis is a holistic knowledge of the spheres/spherons that exhaust humanity/noosphere. Without their knowledge, all liability is flawed and limited.
5. Holistic Cybernetic Megascience: Global Democratic Federation and World Government Foundation. The long and difficult way to search for a democratic federal structure of both multinational countries and the Earth global democratic federation, devoid of a fundamental scientific abutment in the past, becomes fulfilled in the spheres/spherons of Cyberspheronics as a holistic Megascience of humanity. The conscious organization of the social life and political power of each people/nation and humanity as a whole on the basis of spheres/spherons of the appropriate scale, level and cultural-historical diversity, disclosed in the CYBS, creates a fundamentally substantiated single platform for the Earth global democratic federation at all levels from municipal to world, as confirmed by holistic cybernetic science. At the same time, the CYBS becomes a fundamental scientific pillar of the world government (Einstein), the world parliament and the Earth’s Constitution. CYBS also becomes a fundamentally new peacemaking tool than can save humanity of all sorts of wars, according to the UN and its corresponding Security Council and its Charter (Kotila, 2016 and others; Martin , 2018, etc.). The spherons equality is the social foundation/law of scientific federalism and its Constitution, without which they (democracy, federalism and their constitutions) remain shaky and unstable, from within which fascist and other totalitarian regimes easily arise, as history has shown many times.
6. Holistic Cybernetic MegaScience as a Common Scientific Platform for the Integration of Various Environmental Projects. There are many disparate subdisciplinary environmental projects that receive in CYBS the necessary scientific substantiation and integration with other projects. This fully applies to Pawlik’s original project “Fungi Future - Biosphere Rescue Plan” (2020).
7. Spherons Manifesto as the Manifesto of the Norm Replacing the Humanity Pathologies. Humanity/society, as a social organism of the highest complexity, has its own norm and pathologies. Their knowledge requires fundamental science, to which humanity has not yet matured and is only entering its first stage creating it in the MegaScience of Cyberspheronics. CYBS, penetrating into the spherons’ genetic level of humanity, offers fundamental scientific knowledge of the social norms of love, harmony, peace and non-violence. only this genetic societal norm provides humanity with continuous reproduction, uninterrupted life, survival and prosperity. The spherons in love, harmony, non-violence and peace constitute the only internal source of their being, with all its infinite historical, cultural and civilizational diversity. Spherons are the source of human health and beneficial norms.
The source of social pathologies/diseases of humankind, whether mild or severe, are deviations from the norm. These deviations have occurred at various historical stages among various, historical transient parts/partons of humanity: nations, classes, groups, parties, elites, states, etc. They give rise to certain social pathologies that often reach extreme ugliness. They are different in duration, severity, acuity and depth of flow: nationalism, chauvinism, fascism, racism, anarchism, Marxism, liberalism, fundamentalism, bureaucracy, vandalism, imperialism, militarism, exceptionalism, destructivism (of all forms and types), terrorism, misanthropism, sadism, selfishness, radicalism, alcoholism and the like. The scientific atlas/encyclopedia of social pathologies has not yet been compiled due to the lack of science, but CYBS creates the basis for it, both as a whole for humanity and in its spheres/spherons, as well as in different historical eras. This is a matter for the future.
It is important to emphasize that different forces can use knowledge of social pathological anatomy for different purposes: to cure any social organism, to kill it as soon as possible, or to exacerbate pathology. Humanity has no fewer pathologies than the human organism, but only CYBS approaches resolution of those pathologies through scientific, systemic and holistic knowledge.
8. Summary. The CYBS Manifesto: The Manifesto of Humanity Spherons Third Way, Outside of Capitalism/Communism. Cyberspheronics (CYBS) finds in the equal, structurally eternal and universal spheres/spherons of humanity its deepest societal genetic nature of its wholeness. Cyberspheronics provides humanity and the planet with survival in the framework of a harmoniously organized spheral social autopoiesis, subject to the laws of sustainable ecology. Cyberspheronics frees humanity from the global nuclear ecocide/genocide. We discuss this issue in detail and with the necessary justification in Gandhica (Conclusion).
Therefore, the CYBS Manifesto is the Manifesto of humanity’s survival, its holistic harmonious worldview, alternative to all partial, monistic and destructive ideologies of the past. This is Manifesto of the genetically equal spherons and their conscious/scientific, “substantially new” Third Way to the era of peace, love, harmony and non-violence. The science of self-knowledge of humanity is finally reached the values of this era, following in the footsteps of Gandhi.
The CYBS Manifesto is an alternative to all past Manifestos of violence, including communism and liberalisms (Oxford, 1997). In place of various architectures/dictatorships of the deadly parts of humanity of different colors (white, black, red, green, rainbow, etc.), the CYBS Manifesto creates a fundamental scientific architecture/democracy of non-violence by equally necessary and sufficient spheres/spherons of humanity/noosphere as a whole. The CYBS guarantees humanity equality, justice, peace, love, brotherhood, freedom, non-violence and happiness of all peoples in their harmony while also retaining all constructive achievements of the past.
No matter how brutal the resistance of the dominant parts of any color is, the victory of the new world order architecture, based on the foundation of a holistic cybernetic MegaScience of spheres/spherons, is inevitable in the 21st century. Mahatma Gandhi first predicted non-violent victory almost a century ago. Therefore, the CYBS Manifesto is the Gandhian Manifesto of the Future and its New Generations. It is the spherons’ Manifesto of love, harmony, peace and non-violence for an evolving mature reasonable humanity.

* Cybernetics of spheres/spherons or Cyberspheronics was detailed and fundamentally substantiated by the world statistics of 76 countries in the GHA joint book Gandhica (2019, 240 pages, in four languages: https://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=848). It was created by 82 coauthors, including cyberneticians, Nobel laureates, the President of India and outstanding humanitarian scientists/peacemakers from 25 countries as the crowning achievement of GHA scientific research during 15 years. This Manifesto is the shortest outline/synopsis of the Gandhica Cyberspheronics for the pragmatic purposes of the fundamental scientific transformation of global governance and democracy in the 21st century. The references to this key book and other bibliography are minimized in the text so as not to overload it.
** The cybernetic ideas presented in this Manifesto and Gandhica grew up in close cooperation and friendship with Bernard Scott, a well-known British cybernetics for the past 20 years, including 15 years in the GHA (Global Harmony Association: International peacemaking organization of scholars-humanities, established in 2005: https://peacefromharmony.org). His fundamental ideas are important intellectual contribution to this Manifesto. The main milestones of our cooperation over 20 years are presented on the GHA website. I cannot forget their and am happy to express to him my highest appreciation and gratitude. Leo Semashko. May 31, 2020.

Final Manifesto, Birthday and Future Agenda
TO: Ms. Mairead Maguire, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate
Thank you very much for your warm birthday greeting, which was published along with 37 similar ones from 19 countries here: https://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=649. I also heartily thank all others for their warm congratulations.
Along with this, you supported our final “Spherons/Humanity Manifesto XXI” as a Manifesto of peace, love, harmony and non-violence of our century, offering the Third Way, alternative to all militaristic systems of the past that lead humanity to the very edge of the global nuclear disaster 75 years after the World War II and Victory over fascism. For more than a month of discussion and corrections, it found the support of 30 GHA members from 16 countries, the responses of which are published together with your on the final Manifest page here: https://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=908
I am sincerely grateful to you and all for your strong support, which demonstrates the urgent need in strong, fundamental scientific alternative to the militaristic threat of the “shameful self-destruction" of humankind and the biosphere.
Of course, our Manifesto is far from perfect, but it offers an alternative to the shameful impotence, both intellectual and political, before the dictatorial militaristic Damocles sword of modernity, before which humanity is like a lamb on the scaffold. Our Manifesto is a strong mental protest against the dictatorship of militarism, to the protest of which you make a powerful contribution.
I am happy to send everyone the final Manifesto in the attachment (see also its web publication) with one agenda for the future: to translate it into other languages and publish it as widely as possible with a view to its further discussion and promotion to new public organizations and political structures, including the UN. We can and must shift by this Manifesto the question of a fundamental alternative to deadly militarism and its accelerating race of nuclear supersonic weapons from a dead center. There is nothing more to do. The pacifist calls are dead and degenerated; they do not interfere in any way with militarism and the arms race, which only mock pacifist attempts. We can no longer live into non-alternatively doomed, shameful, and humiliating 75-year-old status quo of sheep on the scaffold ofmilitarism. Humanity can no longer be held hostage to terrorist militarism on its scaffold. It requires not only intelligence, but also a strong will and courage, which you, Mairead, have been vividly demonstrating since 1976, when you boldly stopped the brutal terror in Belfast. Therefore, we very much hope for your strong promotion of our Manifesto, which will be an example of civil responsibility for peace for others.
With love and gratitude,
Many thanks to and all your family for your lives and great leadership in
The service of love, nonviolence, harmony and peace the path to building
a new humanity and happy world.
Nobel Peace Prize Laureate
Spherons Manifesto Final:
discussion/approval by June 21
Dear GHA members, friends,
In search of a satisfactory form and measure, after numerous discussions and reflections, for the fifth time I rewrote our “Spherons Manifesto” (20 pages), preserving its key content. In this regard, I am happy to present to you for final discussion and approval in 2 days, until June 21 inclusively, an updated version of the Manifestoin the attachment and published here:
It takes into account and saves all the support voices in the previous discussions, starting from May 17. During the month of discussion, the Manifesto did not meet a single objection in principle, but many (19 from 12 countries) positive comments published with it. Therefore, your silence will be a sign of consent, so as not to be repeated. Final amendments to the Manifesto will be made only on the basis of your feedback.
Our Manifesto is the shortest synopsis of our Gandhica in its practical refraction, both scientific and political/business. This is our most worthy intellectual peacemaking result in 15 difficult years of searching. This is the GHA's best farewell gift for Global Harmony Day on June 21, with which I am happy to congratulate you, and on my birthday on June 20.
I am happy to thank all the GHA members and its friends, who have remained faithful to it and its mission: Global Peace from Spherons Harmony, who supported it and contributed to it! As I reported, after the completion of the GHA last book: “Gandhicracy” at the end of the year, from January I completely switch to spheral business, to the pragmatism of our Manifesto as a guide to action. I will report on this in detail later, at the end of the year.
With love, best wishes for health and peace from harmony,
I would like to wish you a very happy Birthday.
I hope you have a wonderful day with your family.
Thank you for all you do for peace and harmony in the world.
Nobel Peace Laureate,
I approve the Manifesto. Great work. Thank you.

I am glad to join those who have already signed your noble Manifesto. I am especially happy to do so that this coincides with your 79th birthday. So I wish you many healthy, happy and productive years ahead. However, in good faith, I wish to suggest removing one short paragraph <<prehistoric India, which provided it with prosperity and world cultural leadership for a millennium, intuitively used by him in the practice of non-violent liberation of India from colonial slavery, become through the CYBS the scientifically conscious property of all
humanity. They open before it the Era of true being in the conscious realm of harmony, peace, equality, partnership service, love and non-violence of all nations.>>
After talking with you on the phone, I understand your desire to connect your spheron theory with the teachings of Mahatma Gandhi in a conceptual way. However, Gandhi's own attitude to the varnas system of ancient India was more complex than just accepting without question.
For reference, just read this recent article by an Indian scholar who is generally approving of Gandhi's Non-Violence.
In Good Faith: Gandhi and the varna question
It is easy to cherry-pick from his writings to paint him a racist and anti-Dalit. But Gandhi’s views evolved, reflected his ethical project.
Written by K.P. Shankaran | Updated: February 25, 2019 12:55:07 am
I am sure that without the above short paragraph, your eloquent pro-Peace and pro-Harmony Manifesto will serve even its better its noble purpose.
once again, thank you for your leadership on a Happy 79th birthday.
W George Krasnow (http://wiki-org.ru/wiki/Краснов,_Владислав_Георгиевич)
President, RAGA, www.raga.org
I am very grateful to you for the strong support of the Spherons Manifesto. But there is one very sensitive phrase in your letter in Russian: “You illegally connect your modern theory of spherons with the traditional caste system of ancient India, to which the Mahatma himself was ambiguous.” (In the English answer, you formulate it a little differently.) As proof, you refer to the article by Professor of the University of Delhi K. Shankaran, “In Good Faith: Gandhi and the varna question”.
I carefully studied this article, translated it into Russian, published it in two languages in the section “Discussions about Gandhi” (http://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=862 and http://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=799) and provided it with a brief comment. The question of varnas and castes is the most complex and difficult in the legacy of Gandhi. Its complexity is determined by both the history of the subject itself and the history of Gandhi's views on them. The historical difficulty lies in the fact that Varnas existed in ancient Indian society as equal social groups that divided the entire population into four clusters that lived in peace and harmony and ensured the prosperity and world cultural leadership of ancient India over the millennia of its life, which is reflected in the numerous Vedas.
For the millennium of social equality of Varna was followed the millennium of their evolutionary deformation and their transformation into a hierarchical caste system. Gandhi's views also evolved from a partial recognition of the value of the caste system in Hinduism to its complete denial and rejection of Hinduism on this issue. By 1927, he firmly and without hesitation distinguished them, in every possible way praised equal Varnas as the universal law of the revival of humankind and completely rejected castes as a "monster" and social ugliness, which he considered the cause of extreme poverty and decline of India.
Professor Shankaran defends this point of view, protecting Gandhi from numerous falsifications, representing him as a racist and “casteist”, who identified castes and varnas. This is a gross distortion and falsification of Gandhi, which cannot be acceptable to any honest scientist who has studied the works of Gandhi and does not judge them firsthand. This is the subject of my comment below. I hope it convinced you of the unfoundedness of your accusation that I “unlawfully bind them.” Following Gandhi, I associate spherons with equal varnas, but I have never connected, like Gandhi, spherons/varnas with castes.
Best wishes for your health and peace from the Gandhian varnas/spherons harmony,
Дедушка, я с тобой частично согласна.
Тему Манифеста нужно затрагивать в университетах и прочих ВУЗах. Мне было трудно осознать его,
но часть я поняла. Могу сказать, что это невозможно, но попытаться стоит. Всегда будет насилие, воины, презрение одной расы другими, всегда будет тот, кто выше остальных.
Полина Семашко, 14 лет,
Всем доброго времени суток.
'Манифест сферонов’ поддерживаю и утверждаю.Идеи и теории, описанные в манифесте,
близки мне по духу. Особенно идеи разоружения для сохранения жизни человечества и планеты; "честная" демократия и политика в целом.И еще многие идеи, изложенные в манифесте.
Yes, I approve the Manifesto.
My YES for approval.
Yes I approve the manifesto. Congratulations.
Peace and all good,
I approve the manifesto.
All the Best
Théa Marie Robert
Манифест — это наша программа к действию. Идеи и принципы ГСГ четко отражены и не вызывают сомнение. Мое замечание к стилистике и форме самого документа. Манифест — это публичное заявление и должно быть понятно каждому. Он похож на обращение ученого к научному миру и больше похож на научный трактат и не цепляет за душу, а это должен быть призыв, боевой клич или набат, который разбудит каждого. Мне кажется манифест должен отражать интересы каждой сферы и как квинтэссенция каждого человека. Если мы в своем манифесте не можем кратко и понятным языком изложить свою точку зрения, значит мы еще не доработали нашу теорию. Наш путь тернист, но мы не отступим. Самое главное, что у нас есть фундамент - сферный подход и какое здание мы построим на этом фундаменте это зависит только от нас.
Mr. Leo Semashko
Sei que o assunto já foi decidido.
Mas reitero o meu apoio.
Г-н Лев Семашко,
Я знаю, что вопрос уже решен.
Но я повторяю свою поддержку.
I approve the manifesto.
Thanks Dr Leo,
I have gone through the Spherons Manifesto.
Very comprehensive indeed and excellent for scientific and academic discourse.
I endorse it even though it late. I have thinking if we do an abridged version of the manifesto targeting ordinary people who may not understand the highly technical nature of the document? I guess this way; we could reach out also to the ordinary man with these great Spheron ideas. In any case, one sentence I found in the manifesto very illuminating is this definition of Spheron “the Spherons sun belongs to everyone”. I found this statement very heart warming hence this idea of an abridged version to reach as many as possible with this manifesto.
I am agree with the Spherons Manifesto.
GHA 78th, final, farewell and starting project.
Approval up to June 8
Dear GHA members, friends,
I am glad to offer you the final, 78th GHA Project “Cyberspheronics Manifesto” for your discussion and approval by your YES or NO during 3 days, up to June 8 inclusively. It is in the attachment (12 pages) and on the website: https://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=908The question is complex, so my farewell message is longexcuse me.
This is a special project - the GHA swan song. He summarizes and completes 15 years of our intellectual innovative searches, which were found in 10 unique/unprecedented, unparalleled books, 78 peace projects and hundreds of articles in 16 languages, which are found in almost all the world's largest libraries and universities in all continents and which received more than 15 million views on the GHA website “Peace from Harmony”. (The GHA results for 15 years are summarized in more detail and evaluated in comparison with the intellectual giants here: https://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=927. Our books/projects are the GHA seeds of “a substantially new [non-violent, holistic, harmonious, cybernetic, asymmetric] manner of thinking” (Einstein) by the Gandhian spheres/spherons, which will certainly find favorable soil and give their fruitful shoots in the coming years and decades, becoming “the greatest shift in human thought of the last millennia” (Vernadsky).
The GHA made this shift in 15 years, which other academies cannot make in a century. As Gandhi wrote, “the world may ignore [the law of varnas/spherons] today but it will have to accept it in the time to come... Today, nations are living in ignorance and breach of that law”. Varnas/spherons reveal to us the eternal, immutable, genetic law of our being at Gandhi. It is still unknown to humanity; only in the GHA did it receive sufficient theoretical and empirical/statistical evidence in all of its 10 books combined, especially in Gandhica, which focuses on 12 pages of the Cyberspheronics Manifesto, in the final, 78th GHA Project.
Thinking as a philosopher about the GHA 15-year history and the fate of its unprecedented intellectual heritage ahead of time, I realized that the traditional GHA has exhausted its intellectual potential, it’s inaccessible to the transition to practice, to the transformation of global governance and democracy, to business, to fundamental statistical research of spherons, which only 12 people were able to do. As Schiller would say, "the Moor has done his work, the Moor may go." Everything has its time and everything comes to an end. Therefore, the 78th GHA project is its final and farewell project. In its logic, it remains only to complete the GHA 10th book, “Gandhicracy”, the material for which is fully compiled (https://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=907) and it remains only to assemble it in a small book of 150 pages and publish it at the year end. This will be done without fail. Who wanted to make statistics of spherons in it and write articles and reviews in it, he/she wrote. Waiting for no one else is pointless. Here is the finish. The GHA 78th project will be the “Introduction” of the 10th book and the start of a new, young GHA, with new tasks for the practical implementation of its unique mental heritage.
As you know, "new wine requires new furs." The new, youth GHA will begin to be created in January 2021 based on the strategic pragmatics that are formulated in the second part of the “Cyberspheronics Manifesto”. Its practical implementation requires not only higher thinking in spheres/spherons, but also organizing will and inspiring motivation, embodied in the first intellectual test of the new GHA - in the statistical scientific research of spherons (SSRS) of any level. This test is a criterion for higher, spheral intelligence, the corresponding mental abilities of the new century and at the same time an indicator of the pragmatic will of their implementation at the level of higher politics and business, including global. Without scientific, theoretical and empirical knowledge of spherons in the new century, there can be no true and practical peacemaking from harmony. SSRS is an individual discovery for oneself of the true reality / substance of global peace from harmony at all levels. Therefore, SSRS is an intellectual test of each member in the new GHA.
Naturally, all those “old men - the last of the Mohicans” who conducted or will conduct SSRS before the end of the year and those young people who will pass this test by presenting their SSRS will be invited to the renewed GHA. The “Cyberspheronics Manifesto”, as you see, will become a bridge from the past to the future, from the old to the new GHA. It consists of a finish and a start at the same time, but in different dialectical relations and different realistic contextual meanings.
Therefore, it requires an ambivalent assessment/recall of each GHA member from the standpoint of its past/future, if he/she has not parted with it for any reason for a long time: age, health, intellectual reachless of the GHA achievements, apathy to everything, etc. In any case, all your feedbacks, as always, according to the GHA democratic tradition, will be saved for history in their publication, with thanks, on the page of our "Manifesto". We have done a lot, but more needs to be done with the new force of non-violence and intelligence of the new generation.
As for my personal fate, I will continue, until the end, my life’s mission of global peace, which excludes by the spherons the very possibility of war, which is “killed” by them that my parents was bequeathed to me, one of whom died in the war. I will keep my mission under any conditions of Marxist suppression/persecution in the USSR/Russia, in which for 40 years there has not been a scientist, institute, Academy capable of listening, discussing, understanding and recognizing the fundamental nature of the spherons discovery, as well as Western racist, liberal Russophobia ignored it 10 years. I am full of optimism in the spherons triumph as the third way, in which history has already broken the Marxist anvil (USSR/communism) and is completing the destruction from within the liberal hammer (capitalism/militarism). All thinkers are well aware that capitalism is also destitute of the future (Wallerstein et al., 2013). Therefore, for me and for Gandhi/my spherons, as the third way - do not worry, please. They will live forever. This is my life-long experiment.
Best wishes to you all good health, love of life, summer holidays and global peace from the Gandhian spherons harmony,
Dr. Leo Semashko,
GHA Founder and Honorary President,
The ISA RC51 Sociocybernetics Honourary Lifetime Member,
Dear Professor Leo;
Greetings from Nepal!
Thank you for your innovative paper. A acquired a huge knowledge from this and you are the philosophical master on this Cyberspheronics. Please keep author introduction at the footnote of the page 1, rather just below the heading. You nicely portrait Love, Harmony, Peace and Non-violence. This paper has mentioned existence in some places, but if you could manage the words "non-existence", "empathy" and "dukha" are also the core instruments of Gandhian Philosophy. Security and dignity shall also be useful on this endeavor.
Many thanks once again for your outstanding paper.
Professor Bishnu Pathak, PhD
Commission of Investigation on Enforced Disappeared Persons, Nepal
Dear Professor Bishnu,
Greetings from Russia!
Thank you very much for your strong support of Cyberspheronics (CYBS) and your suggestions in it, on which we will think and discuss.
Your suggestions and support would be fundamentally stronger if you could do a statistical research of spherons (SRS) of Nepal for any year. It only takes three hours, and you promised it. I could help you with it on Skype. Your SRS will open your wide path for the practical application / use of our Gandhica and CYBS in Nepal, and it will preserve our cooperation with you in the new GHA from next year, when it will work only based on SRS.
SRS is an intellectual shift of the traditional, partial, egoistic "EGO thinking" into "substantial new" according to Einstein, holistic "ECO thinking" by the spheres/spherons. Could you try this intellectual shift for yourself?
I also call on all others who support CYBS to a similar intellectual shift, who would like to work with the GHA from the new year: Lucas from Austria, Ernesto from Israel, Lana and Roger from the USA, Michael from Australia and others. I do not think that it is not intellectually available to you. I am ready to help you on Skype as I can. The whole problem is finding three hours of time for it. Is it soluble for you?
With hope and best wishes,
Дорогой Лео Семашко!
Я думаю, вкладывать меч в ножны рановато. Реальные битвы только начинаются!
Мне недавно исполнился 81 год, но силы отнюдь не иссякли. Думаю, что немалую роль в этом сыграл препарат L-карнозин, который сегодня признан лучшим в мире геропротектором (информация во вложении).
Если Вы сочтете возможным, учтите при разработке Киберсфероники мои наработки
1.Трехчленный состав Ноосферы (Техносфера — Социосфера — Идеосфера), в котором Идеосфера — Дух Ноосферы — является самым важным
2.Числовую (аритмологическую) классификацию типов мировоззрений (базовых мифов) в Ноосфере (во вложенной книге — стр. 78).
Желаю Вам неувядающей бодрости Духа и крепости тела.
Вы делаете очень важное для всего Человечества дело!
Спасибо за поддержку и добрые пожелания!
Что касается Ваших трех сфер ноосферы/человечества/общественного производства в целом (аутопоэзиса по Матуране), то в теоретической социологии, начиная с раннего Маркса, Броделя, Парсонса, Тоффлера, Ганди, Бурдье, включая мои книги за 30 лет, начиная с "Сферный подход" и кончая "Гандикой", и других твердо доказана их четырехсферная структура, от которой нет никаких оснований отступать. Почитайте об этом внимательно Гандику и напишите рецензию на нее с Вашими аргументами, без которых Ваше предложение совсем непонятно.
Если бы у Вас хватило Духа потратить 3 часа (с моей помощью по скайпу) на статисследование сферонов, например, Москвы за любой год, то Вы получили бы полное эмпирическое доказательство истинности четырехсферной структуры, поглощающей Ваши три сферы. Они, очевидно, у Вас из христианской традиции. Но эта песня вне науки, хотя не менее важна по другим основаниям, чем наука. Согласны?
I happily agree with our Cyberspheronics Manifesto!I also agree that with Lana that an attitude of resentment towards the USA does not further. The USA needs peace guidance right now! Do we have members with whom we can cooperate in the USA?
Thank you for your support of the Cyberspheronics Manifesto. You reply is published along with others on its page.
Unfortunately, American colleagues remain deeply silent for many reasons: pandemic, dangerous protests, torn partial thinking, etc. Indeed, the United States is most in need of “peace guidance right now!" But they are unable to accept it because of the torn "EGO-thinking", therefore they are doomed to violence, as always in their militaristic history. The bridge to peace through a holistic, “substantially new”, according to Einstein, non-violent “ECO-thinking” by spheres/spherons, at least for a start/example of the GHA members, could be their statistical research of spherons (SRS) of any state/city of the USA for any year. It takes only 3 hours.
SRS is an intellectual shift from the traditional, partial, egoistic “EGO-thinking” into “substantial new”, holistic “ECO-thinking”. Could you and Lana try this intellectual shift for yourself, together, and with my help, if you want? Without such an example, no new "peace guidance right now!" in America is possible. Should someone show the first example? WHO? If everyone in America hid in their "EGO-thinking"? WHO will make a shift from it to peacemaking and non-violent "ECO-thinking" by spheres/spherons? Can we wait for this shift from Trump, as Lana comically advises? If we do not give it, we will have to wait for it only from Trump. How will similar expectation end? It’s not difficult to predict.
I have already sent my article for Gandhicracy, about the real and truth Greek Democracy, which worked in the past producing amazing humanitarian and social achievements in all levels of culture and civilization.
You use the 'democracy' expression of West Europe and America, an ugly one, which is completely different from the Greek Democracy.
So many countries admire and use the turn Democracy to show a quality face.
Takis D Ioannides,
I analyzed the Marxist ideology which inserted capitalism in a dialectical historical process. Lenin was a practical politician and Stalin a strong dictator who was in a tremendous society under internal and external war. I suspect that Marx could disagree with such evolution of the Russian Revolution. But this is only an hypothesis. What is sure, is that Marx did not explain how socialism should be.
I think that, if we criticize the Soviet or Mao Societies, Marx must be excluded from that. In the same way, Jesus must be excluded from the Christian Inquisition.
You traced a lasting furrow of tens of years, you knew to surround you by multiple researchers of the various continents and today, the proposals for a our network penetrate in all the continents.
Like, one should not too much hope on the official Institutions to develop our work ,..
With our work, we propose to the people a new alternative, …
Nowadays, (and climatic disordered state and the state of the world based on the power struggle and the militarization) they are neither Communism, nor capitalism the future, but what we propose, and which Léo initiated. Thank you with him.
Social observant French writer
I include my article below, which you may be interested in.
I approve your concept.
My colleagues in the University want you to talk on Gandhica in a webinar.
Are you ready to do that? I will ask them to organize a talk through webinar.
Maitreyee Bardhan Roy,
Here is a new, improved copy of the Third Way.
It contains a new paragraph about Ossip Flechtheim, the founder of the critical Futurology.
The GHA Third Way is indeed needed today more than ever.
We shall have a worldwide Skype discourse via Boston College about the Third Way,
including GHA. You are remembered in the USA!!!
Your Rudi from the House of Mir,
Prof. Rudolf Siebert,
GLOBAL GOVERNANCE MEGASCIENCE MANIFESTO:
UNIQUE STRATEGIC PROJECT TO SOLVE HUMANITY CHALLENGES
Any critical era urgently needs breakthrough strategic projects to address the global challenges it faces. For example, such a project for the 19th century was the famous “Manifesto of the Communist Party” written by K. Marx and F. Engels at the request of the communists of that time. In our opinion, along with innovative advantages, it also contained a number of methodological errors, which were most clearly recognized only in the next century.
Firstly, this is the priority of the part over the whole, that is, the interests of the proletariat engaged in industrial production, over the interests of all other classes and social strata of society.
Secondly, the call for social revolutions, which, according to the authors, are the “locomotives of history”, that is, the call for violence as a universal means of resolving social contradictions.
Thirdly, the recognition of a number of classes as reactionary, such as the peasantry.
Fourth, the recognition of the need for the dictatorship of one class over others, in order to suppress their resistance, and as a necessary means of transition to a future classless society.
Our transitional era, overloaded with violence of all types and colors, accompanied by a crisis of the civilizational foundations themselves, needs a fundamentally new ideology and new strategic projects.
In our opinion, such a breakthrough ideology and such a project found its most complete expression in the GHA "Global Governance MegaScience Manifesto." It outlines the main provisions of similar radically new direction in the transition from differential scientific subdisciplines to their holistic alternative, as “Cyberspheronics” (CYBS: https://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=908). The fundamental novelty of this direction is that not one sphere or area of human being is taken as an object of research but the universal societal wholeness of the noosphere, biosphere and cosmos.
The scientific ideas about this integrity allow us to build adequate models for its governance and strategic projects for its transformation, functioning and development. It should be noted that so far Russia has no such strategic projects, because modern socio-economic plans and national programs have nothing to do with the strategy, but relate to the tactical, short-term level of governance. For strategic design and strategic management, we need to be able to build objects of a different type, but in modern practice of public administration they still do not know how to do this, and no digitalization will help here.
It is also fundamentally important that CYBS is based not only on a systemic, but on a metasystem (universumal) approach to research, forecasting and designing solutions to global problems facing humanity. The CYBS highest practical goal is the 21st century most important goal: the humanity survival and saving the bio- and noosphere from the global ecocide/genocide, overcoming the civilization crisis through the Third (outside of capitalism/communism) Way of harmonizing the joint existence of various civilizations based on their societally/genetically equal spheres/spherons.
In addition, a number of unique technologies are offered in Cyberspheronics, for example, technologies of spheral statistics unified for all countries, technologies for creating spheral Internet, technologies of a digital platform for new, non-violent democracy, technologies for solving global environmental and economic problems, technologies of the smartphones applications ensuring successful personal and professional growth of each person. As it is known from The Theory of Activity and Thinking* (Anisimov, 1991), only technology provides the transition to the most effective options for human activity.
All this allows us to evaluate the “Global Governance MegaScience Manifesto” and its Cyberspheronics as a fundamentally innovative and promising response to the most pressing challenges of our time, as a kind of Gospel of a harmonious and intelligent life on Earth in our century.

Andrey Smirnov, Ph.D.,
Head of the "Novgorod Thought-Technical School O.S. Anisimov,
Two Manifestos: Ingenious Comparison.
Thank you very much for your brilliant academic review at the highest professional level below. It was published in two languages on the CYBS page (https://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=908) along with all other responses from many countries there.
Especially valuable in your review, I would say, is a delicate, but principled, murderous criticism of the Marxist communist manifesto and an impeccable demonstration, on its outdated background, the indisputable historical advantages of our “CYBS Manifesto”. It is the genetically equal spherons Manifesto of their conscious/scientific, “a substantially new” Third Way to the era of peace, love, harmony and non-violence, to which the humanity science of self-knowledge has finally come after Gandhi.
The key sociological/methodological significance is emphasizing the dominance of a part over the whole, leading to the death of the whole (primarily the USSR and its camp), in the first manifesto and the priority of the holistic spheres/spherons over their parts in the second that ensures the humanity/whole survival and prosperity in global peace from them harmony.
Your fundamental review encourages some principled additions to our Manifesto, which will be presented in its final version.
We greatly appreciate and deeply gratitude your unique philosophical review.
Friendly, with best wishes for health and peace,
Ну что же... Как говорили в средневековой Франции, "Король умер... Да здравствует Король!!!" Новый Король. Однозначно "ДА" Вашему проекту и Вашему прощальному письму, Лев. Действительно, нам и нашим единомышленникам ровесникам осталось не так уж много времени оставаться ЗДЕСЬ. Поэтому нужны новые молодые силы, способные подхватить факел из пока ещё крепкой, но, всё-таки, не вечно молодой руки лидера. Это должны быть люди у которых впереди 20-30, а то и 50 лет активной жизни. Которые начнут воплощать в жизнь проекты ГСГ. Не исключено что некоторые из них окажутся у руля управления обществом. И это облегчит их усилия. А идеи, которые опередили своё время ждёт полный триумф!
Вот так, господа.
Heinz von Foerster always said: "Nothing is more fun than being taken seriously!" I am ready to put up a website:
Lockdownlessons.us to address Trump and the world, what there is to be learned from the lockdowns. My focus will be on the preservation of the biosphere and relation of nuclear extinction, AI,digitalization, and violence.
I would like to remind you that the GHA got a Christmas Card and a thank you from the White House!!!So Trump and Queen were the most responsive leaders to our Gandhica Petition!!!
In humor lies the greatest wisdom. In morality the greatest deception.
I approve the GHA 78th Project!
The most important thing in this project is a demonstration of the universality of spheres / spherons in all human life, in all families, schools, enterprises, cities, regions, countries, continents and within humanity as a whole. The universality of this “genetic” reality provides humanity with peace and harmony. At the same time, the equality of spherons ensures equality in all other aspects: racial, gender, class, national, etc. This provides a peaceful, harmonious and non-violent solution to all problems arising from one or another difference. Therefore, the CYBS Manifesto is the Manifesto of Equality, Peace, Love, Non-Violence and the Life of the New Age. Therefore, it meets the interests of all normal people and will be recognized by them. It is especially important for women and children!
Yes for your next proposition
Congratulations for all the brilliant work realized by GHA which will be a very important mean of thinking about Peace Harmony
and non-violence. And to act for creating it into the minds, the souls, ant the hearts and the world society.
With love for peace and global harmony
Dr Théa Marie ROBERT
Dear All Peace Aspirants,
Yes, the 78th GHA Project “Cyberspheronics Manifesto” is approved.
Pravat Kumar Dhal,
Dr. Leo Semashko, GHA Founder and Honorary President, and All Peace Leaders,
Greetings from India.
I accept the Cyberspheronics (CYBS): Megascience Manifesto for Global Governance/Democracy.
This Cyberspheronics (CYBS): Megascience Manifesto is a New Journey of “transformational shiftof human consciousness from violent consciousness to spiritual consciousness’ from one dimensional, industrial, disharmonious, and partial thinking to Tetranet Thinking for fostering Global Peace and creating Harmonious Civilization in the 21st Century.”
This Cyberspheronics (CYBS): Megascience Manifesto is a new paradigm to liberate and weld humanity into aglobal harmonious community by transformation ofthe Militaristic thinking to Peaceful Thinking “a substantially new manner Thinking” of (Einstein) by integratingthefour Spherons in four spheres: 1. Sociosphere 2. Orgsphere 3. Infosphere 4. Technosphere with Unity of Love, Peace, Nonviolence & Harmony for achieving Global Governance/Democracy in the 21t century.

María Cristina Azcona,
Глубокоуважаемый Лев Михайлович!
Я восхищен Вашими человеческими ратными трудами. Помимо их значимости для коррекции нравственного мышления, хочу отметить, что сфера не только предустанавливает формализацию метаязыка живой Природы, т.е. гармонии целого в целом ... но и, в частности, выводят философию на уровень подлинной науки...

CYBS Manifesto: Invitation to the co-authors
Dear friends/colleagues Matjaž, Roger and Lucas,
How are you? I hope you are all right.
After a long pre-treatment since May 17, I am pleased to invite you as co-authors of Gandhica to co-author of its synopsis: “CYBS Manifesto” (attached, 11 pages) during two days, until June 2, inclusively. For each of you, I have prepared at its end a separate short paragraph. You could edit it and name 1-3 more of your sources for bibliography. You could also edit the entire document or part of it at your discretion. Your silence will be a rejection from it. After your feedback, it will be sent, according to the GHA tradition, for discussion and approval by the GHA members.
Best wishes for your health and peace,
Thank you for keeping us in the loop! I will add a brief biosphere rescue plan.
OK, thanks, but please make it through four spheres/spherons of our CYBS as all of them are responsible for biosphere albeit to varying degrees, but more of all - militarism, see as an example here: https://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=677. OK?
Our biosphere is about to collapse with the current pandemic as one of its realities. Therefore, I would love to add a specific Biosphere Rescue Plan.
As there wasn't enough place in Gandhica to include a specific biological proposal for our biggest biological problem, I believe it would add further credibility to our seriousness and expertise to include such a proposal now.
The Initiative Continuation in the EU
Many thanks for your support of the CYBS Manifesto with your wonderful “Biosphere Rescue Plan”, which I will post on our website and will include its paragraph in our Manifesto in accordance with its genre and with reference to its publication.
The CYBS Manifesto will be sent for the GHA discussion and approval on June 5 according to our 15-years tradition.
I like to extend our initiative with the CYBS Manifesto to the European Union through your countries: Austria, Slovenia and the USA - Roger, who has a lot of friends among the deputies of the European Parliament and received Brussels subsidies last year for his Constitutional Project. Lucas and Matjaž could also offer the CYBS Manifesto initiative in its most efficient and fastest (within a year) part of Spheral Digitalization Technology (SDT), to your MEPs and young leaders of your countries, to establish and finance the relevant Laboratories of 10-12 specialists under your leadership and my advisory participation with a modest annual budget of 300-400 thousand euros.
Any country, regardless of its scale, which will master the CYBS SDTs, will provide a powerful economic breakthrough, will become its pioneer and world leader in the progress of our century, which will certainly lead to global peace. For the EU, this unique technology will be especially valuable as a tool to strengthen the EU solidarity, the deficit of which was demonstrated by COVID-19. You three, as cyberneticians and federalists closely connected with the EU, could become pioneers/engines of this progress in your countries and in the EU along with the implementation of your own initiatives within its framework. Therefore, for two additional days, let us discuss this initiative, which has not only colossal scientific, especially cybernetic, significance for the EU, but also a unique economic and political meaning for it that is going through a critical time of its existence.
As for me, I will be happy to be a scientific consultant on CYBS spheral statistics and its digital technology in your European laboratories on any conditions from January next year, when I finish the planned book with you. This decision is due to more than 40 years of persecution / suppression of spheral statistics, starting since 1980 in the USSR, just as it brutally suppressed the cybernetics of Norbert Wiener since 1950 that drove it into the history tail and into the collapse at the last century end. As then (70 years ago) in the USSR, and now in Russia, there are no scientists, institutions and Academies that can listen, understand and recognize fundamental scientific/social discoveries and their innovative technologies ahead of time. (At the same time, it readily publishes custom-made Marxist articles on cybernetics as a “real false science” of a 70-year tonality: Anonymous, 2019: https://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=842). Therefore, in my almost 80 years, I have no more existential time to wait and hope for Russia. It is very bitter for me, as the patriot of peaceful, humanistic and harmonious Russia, to admit this truth of my life at its finish. I hope you understand my explanation of my decision.
Friendly, with the best wishes for health and global peace from Gandhian spherons harmony,
Dear Professor Leo;
Greetings from Nepal!
Thank you for your innovative paper. A acquired a huge knowledge from this and you are the philosophical master on this Cyberspheronics. Please keep author introduction at the footnote of the page 1, rather just below the heading. You nicely portrait Love, Harmony, Peace and Non-violence. This paper has mentioned existence in some places, but if you could manage the words "non-existence", "empathy" and "dukha" are also the core instruments of Gandhian Philosophy. Security and dignity shall also be useful on this endeavor.
Many thanks once again for your outstanding paper.
