Dear dr. Leo,

This is to inform you that a team of very senior statisticians having a long experience of data analysis at national and regional level has been selected with their consent for preparing Spherons by using recent census (2017) data of Pakistan. Furthermore, it is informed that the questionnaire used for the census 2017 was a short questionnaire which provides limited information that will also be available by the end of May 2018. The long questionnaire which provides detailed information about the population is expected to use for the collection of data in near future for which date has not been fixed as yet.

The general significance of statistical researches of spherons


Traditional statistics are still incapable of solving the elementary arithmetic task: if the population number is known by its census (or otherwise) at any scale, how is it distributed according to employment in four spheres of social production, i.e. on the spherons employed in them? Failure to solve such an elementary task with the key importance of social, economic and political consequences suggests a deep scientific stagnation and a historical defect / shortcoming of this ‘science’.

The reason for them is also simple and obvious: the ideologies of capitalism and communism are interested in private, fragmented and branch statistics, but not in the large-scale holistic statistics of social production spheres and the spherons involved in them, which reveal systemic social and economic disharmonies, imbalances, inequalities and crises. These ideologies, which have dominated so far, continue to suppress any holistic approach and integral vision of a global society, its growing risks and their solutions at a new, higher level of thinking. International statistical researches of spherons (ISRS) removes this historical limitation of traditional statistics and raises it to the level of a genuine global science, o­ne for all countries. They (ISRS) provide the creation of a single, logically ordered, global space of statistical spheral indicators that order chaotic and nationally limited sets of traditional fragmentary statistics, creating its common denominator with colossal technological consequences for the development of the global digital economy.

Participation of the genuine, free from ideological clichés, scientists-statisticians in the ISRS, opens a unique scientific opportunity for them in two ways. 1. Or scientifically, statistically empirically verify the rightness of the spherons, the validity of the population division into them according to the proposed methodology and the fidelity of their first calculated examples for Russia and St. Petersburg according to the 2010 census (http://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=593), or 2. Scientifically prove the inconsistency or impossibility of their delimitation and the unacceptability for scientific statistics of such a gradation and its statistics calculations. The negative result in science, as is known, is also a valuable scientific result, which will also be published in the book "Spherons: International Statistics" (see below).


Synthesis of the GHA Peacebuilding and Systemic Holistic MegaScience of Third-order Sociocybernetics

Invitation of the scientists
to international cooperation in the theory and empirics of this Mega


In English: http://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=811
In Russian:


In the process of integration of peacebuilding and holistic social science, two global trends of the 21st century intertwined inextricably: the search for peacebuilding science and the deliverance of the social science from the narrow-branch fragmentation that condemns it to weakness and helplessness in solving global system challenges. The first of these is recognized, as you know, global peace excluding the world nuclear war, the threat of which is continuously aggravated for more than 72 years without any fundamental scientific hope.

The history of this constructive international scientific process began in 2002 with the publication of Leo Semashko's book "Tetrasociology: Responses to Challenges" (http://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=145)together with the forewords of RC51 leaders: Bernd Hornung (Germany) and Bernard Scott (England). It was dedicated to the XV World Congress of Sociology in Brisbane, Australia, July 7-13, 2002. This book was presented at 32 sessions of the Congress.

In 2016, this process found its key result in the creation of the international "Global Peace Science" by the GHA 174 coauthors from 34 countries, including the President of India, three Nobel Peace Laureates and dozens of eminent scientists from all the continents (http://peacefromharmony.org/docs/global-peace-science-2016.pdf)

In 2017, this process focused o­n creating a unique "Sociocybernetic Model of Global Harmonious Governance of Spherons" for the UN reform (www.peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=769).

In 2018, this process finds its logical continuation in two indissoluble directions: theoretical and empirical. For theoretical development, the GHA offers an international fundamental scientific article "Third-Order Sociocybernetics: Megascience for Genetic Structural Harmony of Spheres and Spherons of Social Production and Global Peace." This article of 20-30 pages is expected to be completed and published in October 2018 and submitted to the UN Peace Conference in November this year, and in 2019 - at the RC51 next International Conference.   The initial outline of this article is: "Spherons’ Sociocybernetic MegaScience: Global Breakthrough of Politics, Business and Governance to Genetic Structural Harmony of Social Production and Universal Peace" in 6 pages. It is published here: http://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=810

Its focus is the genetic structural harmony of spherons. Classical cybernetics is involved in harmonious research as it is illustrated by the corresponding mathematical studies in the “Norbert Wiener Center for Harmonic Analysis and Applications”: http://www.norbertwiener.umd.edu/

In the empirical direction the GHA organizes "International Statistical Researches of Spherons (ISRS)" in several countries (http://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=811). Based o­n their results, a special book is planned to be published: "Spherons: International Statistics" in October with presentation to the UN Conference in November. This book will constitute the empirical basis of the above theoretical article.

Eventually,the GHA is happy to invite interested and responsible scientists from Sociocybernetics, mathematics, sociology, statistics, econometrics, peacemaking and other fields to actual cooperation in the theoretical and empirical (paid) directions, as defined above.
Questions and proposals for cooperation could be forwarded to Leo Semashko, by email:
