TO MAHATMA GANDHI
The 150th birth anniversary, October 2, 2019
The book key meaning
The book, dedicated to Gandhi, in its deep meaning is dedicated to the memory of 138 million victims of 62 countries (71 million killed, 38 million injured, 29 million captured) of the Second World War (1939-1945) - unprecedented bloodshed/violence in the history of humankind. We offer in our book the scientific rationale for the Gandhian nonviolent tetranet thinking "the greatest force of non-violence of mankind” that excludes the very possibility of violence, wars, militarism, “shameful self-destruction of mankind”, “if it wants to survive” (Albert Einstein) and “end the war before the war ends mankind” (John Kennedy). This threat of “shameful self-destruction of mankind” has grown many times through nearly 75 years after the WWII end and reached the limit of complete annihilation of life/biosphere or full ecocide/genocide. Only its overcoming by the Gandhi’s non-violence will ensure his life and save it from oblivion and extinction at future generations. For this, humanity should make the Gandhi first maxim: “Nonviolence is the law of our life” by avowed in order to overcome/“hack” the traditional “Science without Humanity”. In the new “humanity” science, in its tetranet thinking and in its new scientific language, its “law of non-violence” is revealed as the fundamental “law of spherons” and vice versa. This science overcomes the threat of ecocide/genocide and gives Gandhi’s nonviolence the second, eternal life!

Gandhi's Nonviolence in the Spheral Sociocybernetic Science. Collapse of the traditional humanities and their revival in the spheral sociocybernetics of non-violence. Execution of the key peacemaking precepts of the last century and the opening of the nonviolent era of the future in the 21st century
We shall require a substantially new [nonviolent] manner of thinking
if mankind is to survive.
The significant problems we face cannot be solved at the same level of thinking
we were at when we created them.
Peace cannot be achieved through violence, it can only be attained
through understanding [nonviolent science and thinking].
Albert Einstein, 1950
Those who do not understand the method will not understand
the depths of their own cultures.
Charles Snow, 1956
Mankind must put an end to war or war puts an end to mankind.

In order to create our [nonviolent] future
our [violent] present has to be hacked.

The non-violence law is the law of spherons and vice versa.
Spherons are ‘substance’ (Einstein) of a new, tetranet thinking.
The book authors, 2019
We, the GHA ninth scientific collective book authors, theoretically investigate in it the Mahatma Gandhi’s nonviolent story unique to humanity, which is most fully reflected in first-hand “The Collected Works of Mahatma Gandhi” in 98 volumes (CWMG).
The great legacy of Gandhi's non-violence, with all the immense multitude of its most diverse studies, remains undisclosed and incomprehensible in its deepest social law, which is defined by Gandhi himself: “Nonviolence [harmony, peace] is the greatest force at the disposal of mankind. It is mightier than the mightiest weapon of destruction devised by the ingenuity of man. Nonviolence is the law of our life.”(CWMG, V.?, P.?). The social meaning of this ‘law of nonviolence’ remains a scientific mystery. We still do not know with which social structures of humankind nonviolence is connected, which ones generate, provide and define it and which ones violate it and deviate from it. We still do not have its “understanding understanding” in the humanities, the need of which was first spoken by the great Austrian cyberneticist Heinz von Foerster (Foerster, 2003). We are trying to fill this fundamental scientific gap in our book, relying on all previous achievements of the humanities and integrating/synthesizing them in the new sociocybernetic paradigm of the tetranet thinking, which is unfolded below.
We are convinced that the scientific understanding of the deep law of nonviolence requires a new intellectual tool, embodied in a new way of thinking, which rebuilds and lifts traditional thinking to a new level. The need for a “substantially new manner of thinking” for the survival of humanity in nonviolence was ingeniously concisely expressed by Albert Einstein: “We shall require a substantially new [nonviolent] manner of thinking if mankind is to survive.” The substantial novelty of this thinking is nonviolence that distinguishes it from the traditional violent and militaristic thinking of many thousands years of human history. This thinking was systematically laid out for the first time by Mahatma Gandhi. To build a system paradigm of nonviolent manner of thinking, we offer a new philosophical/worldview vision and a new scientific view to Gandhi's nonviolence in its two inseparable planes: spiritual/theoretical and practical/political. In our book, priority is given to the first perspective.
A new philosophical vision and a new scientific view constitute a new thinking, which we titled “tetranet thinking”, the meaning of which name is revealed below. It develops in many (eight) of the GHA collective books, of which we will name the last two collective summary works (Semashko&C, 2012; 2016), crowning the GHA paradigmatic search for 14 years of our “collective consciousness” (Durkheim, 1996). Our new book dedicated to Gandhi's non-violence is the study of this subject in the intellectual space of the "substantially new" (Einstein), non-violent, tetranet thinking, which is the most important navigation and most complex methodological component of this book. In this regard, the book begins with a description and explanation of the methodology of this thinking, through the prism of which a new, fundamental understanding of the social sources of Gandhi's non-violence is reached, to which he intuitively approached but the depressive nature of the social sciences did not allow him to reach their scientific definition.
Therefore we start the book with a brief markup and reamer/scan/evolvent of the methodological space of tetranet thinking from its general definition. Tetranet thinking (TT) is an intellectual interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary toolkit of the holistic rational sociocybernetic cognition/mastering the most complex systemic laws of self-organization of society (social reality), among which the law of nonviolence Gandhi plays a decisive role in the evolution, structure of survival and sustainable development of humanity on the planet beginning the 21st century.
The “substantially new” thinking of a deep understanding of Gandhi’s nonviolence is impossible without a new science and without new terms/concepts, which are briefly explained and defined below. The reader needs to be prepared for them psychologically in order to rebuild and update her/his traditional thinking “substantially”, of course, if she/he wants it and seeks to keep up with life and science. Whoever is not afraid of the tetranet thinking's new concepts will not be afraid of its “substantial” innovation, primarily in the new “understanding understanding” of the sources of Gandhi's non-violence in it.

“Nonviolence [harmony, peace, truth, love, justice, equality, fraternity]
is the greatest force at the disposal of mankind. It is mightier than the mightiest
weapon of destruction devised by the ingenuity of man. Nonviolence is not
the inheritance of cowardice, it is always heroism.
Nonviolence is the law of our life.”
1. Tetranet Thinking (TT).
Architecture and methodology of structural modeling for Gandhi's nonviolence
1.1. Tetranet Thinking: Ontology. Philosophical Worldview Scheme.
The methodological space of tetranet thinking is exhausted by network structures on its four structural hierarchical levels: ontology - epistemology - sociology/sociocybernetics - statistics. Therefore, this space is interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary. Its methodological center is concentrated in a simple fundamental and obvious for all worldview structural model of four completely different, but mutually included as a whole/part, and therefore inseparable, constantly cybernetically interacting and continuously changing real universal components/clusters:
1. World (Earth, Nature, Ecosystem and the Universe as a whole) -
2. Society (production system of spheres of different nations, groups, generations and families) -
3. Human (genus, races, ethnic groups in a common complex of generical psycho-physiological attributes) -
4. “I” (the human person as an individualized system of generical attributes).
A detailed philosophical and sociological analysis of the theoretical backgrounds and sources of this model is presented here (Semashko, 1999).In this model, all components are necessary and sufficient for being and cognition. All of them are observable and observing. They relate as a whole/part in the network / hierarchical architecture of the system design presented below. It is impossible to exclude a single element from this model, but there is nothing to add for the extremely simple coverage of the surrounding world in the first, most general for all people, approximation.
No one will doubt in the existence of their own "I" as an individual, in the existence of other people constituting the human race, in the existence of society, including not only people, but everything that they have created as their infrastructure and, finally, no one will doubt the existence Universe, parts of which are all components/clusters of being. They constitute obvious realities accessible to the simplest intellectual and sensual/visual contemplation. Their reality does not require special evidence, they are available to everyone as an observer.
This model in the center of the upper ontological block implies God, who is embodied in all things, in all existence that goes without saying for all believers. God in all religions is recognized as the creator and guarantor of all the highest positive values in their mutual connection: life, harmony, love, peace, reason, non-violence, truth, justice, equality, fraternity, unity, freedom, which Gandhi expressed well in the book “My Religion"(CWMG, V.?, P. ?) and what later in social cybernetics was called the "heterarchy of values" (McCulloch, 1945).
Deviations and fluctuations around these values, as well as the pursuit to them as the highest and unattainable ideals - this is the fate of all existences, all transient particulars, including individuals. Therefore, this model, while preserving all the viable diversity of the universe and society, is acceptable to virtually all people without exception, regardless of their intellectual characteristics and religious preferences, and even more so from subjective caprices and individualistic whims. In connection with these spiritual and intellectual advantages, this worldview structural model can and certainly will, through tetranet thinking, be a powerful integrator of human consciousness and a common, unifying denominator of its spiritual differences, overcoming the enmity, hatred and incompatibility of traditional partial/transitory historical ideologies.
Each of the four components of the worldview model is a special level of unified reality composed of an infinite network of relevant elements whose life/existence is limited by two objective interrelated attributes: space and time, the continuity of which is proved by Einstein’s theory of relativity and their specificity for each level is demonstrated by their whole story. The physical space/time of existence of society, humanity and the individual is limited by the space of the planet Earth and the cosmic time of its life. Within their framework, the “space” of the life of an individual is limited by two points: the dates of birth and death of each individual. The "space" of the life of society and humanity as a kind is limited to periods of its natural occurrence about a million years ago and its disappearance, which is lost in the fog of the future tense.
The history of humankind in time is the space of its achievements and mistakes that may question its life/survival. The “man-made” threat of “self-destruction” of humanity, i.e. the fatal error of its ecocide/genocide has already been created by traditional/partial thinking in our time in the form of nuclear weapons for a fully prepared nuclear war. This is the “absolute evil” of traditional thinking, which is now able to “work” only on the self-destruction of humanity (Avery, 2017) This is a complete disregard for the survival of humanity in traditional thinking, which Einstein clearly wrote 70 years ago, demanding “a substantially new [non-violent] manner of thinking.” It is absent until now, because its very possibility is suppressed by false, violent/militaristic consciousness of modernity, heavily funded by the dominant “new world order” of the West, which has made “lie the norm” of its “totalitarian democracy” violence (Engdahl, 2009).
Each of the components of the worldview model is an object and subject of endless human knowledge. The eternal cognitive problems begin with attempts to penetrate and understand the internal structure and existential laws of each of the four fundamental components. In the tetranet thinking, on the basis of generalizations of human cognition, which will be presented below, the hypothesis of the universal four-spheral ontological structure of each of the components of the worldview model in the duplex/dual (ambivalent) structure of mutually limiting, defining and mediating attributes is accepted. Their duality/duplexity is grammatically expressed through slash “/”. In the most general definition, tetranet thinking in ontology is four-spheral and four-dimensional, therefore tetrad/tetravalent, and in its epistemology is binary, two-dimensional, therefore duplex/bivalent, i.e. dialectical.
Ontological objects/subjects of tetranet thinking are presented visually in the following philosophical scheme, which expresses the worldview structural model in the spheral system design.
We limit this structural model the ontological part and the explanation of tetranet thinking. A full sweep of the structural model in its epistemological part, for simplicity, is take out into the appendix of this book (p. 1-11). For logical link, from this part we save only the focusing system design of its model below.
1.2. Tetranet Thinking: Epistemology.
Attributes Structural Modeling in System Design
(N. Roerich’s Peace Banner in this model is a symbol of not only peace but also other higher values of humanity: harmony, equality, truth, justice,
fraternity and love, as they are defined in the unity of nonviolence by Mahatma Gandhi)
* Partons are partial, historically transient classes that make up spherons at different stages of social evolution as a constant societal/genetic structure of society. Their difference and commonality are explained here (Semashko&C, 2016). See also their explanation in the Appendix “Epistemology of Tetranet Thinking”.
The TT methodology in the following description is limited only to social (Sociology) and statistical (Statistics) parts necessary and sufficient for understanding the underlying social sources of non-violence and violence in order to consciously and harmoniously regulate them, excluding violence.
The TT sociological methodology is focused in its sociocybernetic paradigm. Its structural model is presented in the system design of the societal spheres and spherons of the “SOCIOCYBERNETIC GENOME” in Scheme-3 below. This scheme is connected with the previous one through its central unit/block (No. 4) “Spherons/Infrastructure”.

The proposed structural model with its countless chains of contours well expresses and illustrates the cybernetic position, in which “all biological forms and machines are systems made up of circular causal feedback patterns.”Therefore, this model is a sociocybernetic one, because it, like cybernetics in general, “set out to steer the circular causal interrelationship …. modeling them as goal oriented feedback loops,” chains. Our task to organize and control the cybernetic system of society “becomes increasingly unmanageable as our conflicts escalate in economical, ideological, and military wars.” [Pawlik, 2019, p. 59-60]
This model as a “substantially new [non-violent] manner of thinking” (Einstein) by chains of different, but interdependent resources, processes, spheres and spherons in their different categorical attributes and in different network and hierarchical feedback loops allows to transform their organization and ensure their holistic and harmonious nonviolent (Gandhian) governance at all levels (Semashko&C, 2016). Sociological analysis, development and explanation of this holistic structural model as a TT methodology are presented in its axioms below.
Several preliminary explanatory definitions. The categories of “spheres of social production” and “spherons, classes/groups of people employed in the spheres of production” are defined in the named Annex, and most detailed - in GPS (Chapter 1. Semashko&C, 2016). The category of “societal” to refer the largest, most stable/constant clusters of society was introduced by the famous American sociologist Talcott Parsons (1977). Other new categories are defined below.
1.3.1. Axioms of the TT sociocybernetic paradigm
The sociocybernetic paradigm of TT as a sociological part of its methodology is based and grows out of Tetrasociology or Third Order Sociocybernetics (of spheres and spherons - societal clusters of societies), which integrate the first two (Semashko, 2012a). Sociocybernetics is the most abstract and generalized part of sociology based on Norbert Wiener’s principles of cybernetics (1948) and his many followers. Its most important quality and advantage is “transdisciplinarity” (Scott, 2019, 2-5). Sociocybernetics of the third order or “Spheral Science" expands "transdisciplinarity" and makes its structural modeling universal in TT. It integrates the whole complex of traditional socio-humanitarian sciences into a single science based on the fundamental fact of a deep, genetic structural/spheral harmony of society, human, and all their system elements (Weir, 2018: Semashko, 1999, 2002, 2012, 2016). The TT methodology deploys and focuses its integrity and transdisciplinarity into a system of sociological/sociocybernetic axioms.
The first axiom TT. Products/resources/capitals. Society as a social production/autopoiesis cannot exist without the four fundamental, necessary and sufficient societal/spheral clusters of products/resources/capitals, which it is forced to continuously produce to live: People, Information, Organizations and Things (material goods and services). In short, these are PIOT products/resources/capitals. The system sum/unity of PIOT within the boundaries of a country or its unit determines the relevant society or community, whose center is PEOPLE (P), and its infrastructure/periphery - three other resources.
PIOT resources are substantially different in their nature, qualities and laws of life, which determines the substantial difference in the technologies, structures, processes, spheres and spherons of their production. They are not interchangeable. At the same time, they are mutually complementary and impossible without each other, so they are necessary and sufficient for each other’s life/production that constitutes their social genetic constancy/eternity along with the constancy/eternity of their spheres, spherons and all spheral structures in all infinite diversity of their historical, civilizational and cultural forms. This is their infinite variety within the framework of the finite, four-dimensional and constant, spheral diversity of PIOT.
The defining productive resource among them is people. They are united in terms of employment in spheres in spherons. They produce all resources, including themselves, and ensure the harmony necessary for the PIOT proportion between them. (Comte, Park, Gandhi, Toffler, Parsons, Bourdieu, Braudel, Castells, Luhmann, Semashko, etc.)
The second axiom. Processes. It was formulated by A. Smith for the economy, for the production of things, but then extended to all PIOT clusters: every resource/product necessary for society goes through four stages/processes: Production, Distribution, Exchange and Consumption. These are the PDEC processes. (Smith, Ricardo, Marx, Keynes, Maturana, etc.)
The harmony of processes is determined by the harmony of PIOT.
The third axiom. Spheres. Combining the necessary spheral resources with the corresponding processes for the production of each of the four necessary spheral products creates four spheral structures - four spheres of social production, each of which at any historical stage combines the corresponding variables, emerging and disappearing, industries/branches and enterprises/units of each sphere. These are spheres: Social, or Sociosphere; Informational or Infosphere; Organizational or Orgsphere and Technical (economic, exciting ecology) or Technoecosphere, for simplicity - Technosphere. These are SIOT spheres. (The same authors as in 1, 2 axioms and many others authors).
The harmony of spheres is determined by the harmony of PIOT.
The fourth axiom. Spherons. Spherons are large, societal groups/communities/classes of people, covering the entire population, engaged/employed in four spheres of social production, in their branches and other units. They differ in the main (in time) employment in one of the spheres, i.e. on employment by the production of one of the PIOT spheral resources (Semashko, 2002, 69-70). Their most complete and detailed theoretical analysis is presented in the GHA book “Global Peace Science”, in Chapter 1 (Semashko&C, 20-52]. They constitute four equally necessary and sufficient spheral classes, called Spherons for brevity and for distinguishing from all other classes and groups belonging to them. Spherons are: Sociospheron; Infospheron; Orgspheron; Technospheron. These are SIOT-Spherons or SIOT-classes. (Gandhi, Parsons, Maturana, Giddens, Semashko, and others.) Spherons are the center of their sociocybernetic genome (SOCIONOME) in Scheme-3, and the rest is their periphery or infrastructure.
The harmony of spherons is determined by the harmony of PIOT.
The fifth axiom. Mutual inclusion. The listed 16 fundamental spheral elements of social production (society) are necessary and sufficient for its life (the absence of at least one of them makes it impossible), exist in an infinite number of historical cultural forms and only in mutual inclusion, in coherent superposition, in constant striving through the productive activity of people/spherons to mutual harmony as the best condition for them to ensure the balanced participation of everyone in everyone at all levels from family to humanity as a whole. They constitute its genome and genetic code, which is preserved in all social changes and transformations. The measure of the spheral harmony of an integral social system determines the measure of its genetic viability and sustainability.
The sixth axiom. Measurement. Conscious control, monitoring, regulation and establishment of sociocybernetic harmony of 16 spheral elements are available, necessary and realizable only by spherons based on their spheral statistics. It is their only quantitative tool for measuring 16 spheral elements through matrices of spheral indices PIOT at all levels based on traditional national statistical indicators. Spheral statistics begin with the statistics of the spherons themselves at all levels from the family to humanity as a whole.
The proposed axioms of the TT sociological methodology are integrated into the sociocybernetic genome, in abbreviated form: SOCIONOME in Scheme-3. Its definition: four social spheres resources POTS produced by the corresponding four spherons in the corresponding four production spheres, combining the corresponding four processes: production, distribution, exchange and consumption are common and constant for all societies in all their transformations and at all levels societal sociocybernetic genome. It is a sociocybernetic, because it is an integral non-linear system of direct and inverse, regulating, stochastic cybernetic interactions within the framework of a single self-organizing structural harmony (Soroko, 1984) of spheres and spherons of social production of any form and any level. The nonlinear, stochastic (swarm) and thermodynamic nature of spherons in the genetics of global peace is disclosed here (Afanasyeva, 2017).
Its driving energy, productive force, motor and heart are spherons, which ensure the preservation of its genetic structural harmony and the development of its infinite forms in social evolution. This is the genome of sustainable development and long life, the social "autopoiesis/self-production" of human society as a living species. It excludes wars by definition, since any mutual violence/destruction of any spheron as necessary and sufficient support of the life of any society is equivalent to the destruction of every society as a whole. War and violence can only be partial and temporary genetic pathologies of some local societies and transient partial classes/partons, which either die naturally or are cured of them in the same natural way. Therefore, SOCIONOME is the genome of global and social non-violence, their genetic code, which remains constant in all the diversity of its endless sociocultural forms of the human historical evolution. Only peace/non-violence as the first condition of social life possesses genome and genetics. The war is devoid of it and represents only its partial and temporary pathology as some failure, deviation or breakdown in its structural harmony of the spheres and spherons of social production.
The theory of spherons and their genome reveals the genetics of social non-violence as “the greatest force of mankind” by Gandhi, which becomes available to conscious regulation only if there is adequate scientific knowledge, its digital technologies and corresponding sociogenic engineering of management and repair of some parts of the socionome in its partial militaristic pathologies. Only genetically peacebuilding spherons, scientifically aware of their own non-violent genetics, can put an end to wars, militarism and all social violence. only they are able to do this non-violently, at an adequate genetic level, scientifically controlling own structural harmony in order to prevent and eliminate any causes of war. Therefore, humanity will be able to end the war/violence when it masters the genetics of non-violence/peace in the structural harmony of its spherons.
The application of TT to the analysis of Gandhi's non-violence is possible on the basis of the proposed methodology in studies of spherons as its source. Their statistical researches are presented in a wide range of countries and their internal units/elements below. Spherons and their statistics are inseparable from each other as two sides of the same coin of a single innovative social knowledge of non-violence in the 21st century.
Here we briefly formulate the methodology of spherons spheral statistics in order not to repeat it in each from their statistical research below.
1.4. Tetranet thinking: Spheral statistics methodology
The methodology of spheral statistics is based on a key, basic matrix of spheral indices of 4x4 in size, from which a practically infinite system of derived fractal matrices of a different dimension is built using a simple algorithm: 4x4n , where n is a series of natural numbers from +1, -1 to infinity. The basic matrix of spheral indices of 4x41 size is:
P1 + P2 + P3 + P4
I1 + I2 + I3 + I4
Î1 + Î2 + Î3 + Î4
T1 + T2 + T3 + T4
Spheral statistics began to develop and be explored more than 40 years ago in many of our articles and books (Semashko, 1992, 1999, 2002, 2012, 2016, and others), of which it is most fully presented in the “Global Peace Science”, Chapter 2 (Semashko and C, 2016). Its general description is briefly presented below.
1.4.1. General description. Two statistics. Two logic of knowledge.
Two paradigms and language of thinking. Two sciences
In the methodology of spheral statistics, there are two mutually complementary types and levels of statistics: traditional and spheral. Each of them is connected with its own, necessary logic of knowledge and its own, necessary paradigm of thinking. Traditional statistics (TS) embodies/implements the simplest and most accessible trend/vector of empirical knowledge from parts, details to the whole. Spheral statistics (SS) embodies/implements the most complex and least accessible vector of theoretical knowledge from the whole to its fundamental parts, which constitute it and to their components and details. Two fundamental and complementary vectors of their interaction and navigation strategies correspond to these opposite but complementary logic of cognition. The TS vector fills the logical/theoretical spheral indices with empirical content/meaning. The SS vector classifies compresses, organizes and focuses the infinite and chaotic space of empirical indices and their meanings. The dignity of each of them is formed in the context and content of their own logic and paradigm of thinking.
The main advantage of the TS is its connection with reality, with the historical context and all of its features, details, pros and cons in various parts of the infinite social world of humanity. TS is formed and lives in the empirical logic of knowledge and in the paradigm of partial thinking. The main advantage of the SS is the penetration into the eternal fundamental and deepest laws/structures of humanity, ensuring its life, survival, and stability in its entire history from beginning to end. SS is formed and lives in the theoretical logic of knowledge and in the paradigm of holistic thinking.
Only at the SS level, its holistic logic and paradigm of thinking, the deep societal structural harmony / nonviolence of humanity as a whole becomes available, regulating all the stochastic, thermodynamic historical processes of all its local and national parts. Disharmony, war and militarism (Maguire, 2014, 2018) find the ground and an adequate language only in the TS, in the empirical logic and paradigm of partial thinking, which are overcome by the SS, in the holistic logic and paradigm of thinking.
Only at the level of the SS, the sources and laws of non-violence, global peace, social equality, fraternity, justice, unity, prosperity, liberation from all social pathologies, prosperity and happiness of all nations become clear. Peace, non-violence and the harmony of humanity are achieved only in the logic and science of the whole, but through the logic of the parts subordinate to the first. Therefore, the SS becomes the decisive intellectual/scientific tool to achieve and ensure them, to overcome the civilization crisis (Avery, 2017), in what its unique meaning and fundamental importance for the future consists.
Traditional statistics (TS) as a science has been developing since 1746, having covered a great evolutionary path of empirical development in each of the countries for almost four centuries. The three main attributes define the essence of this statistics: its national, branch/partial and empirical/inductive character. With its undoubted need, public utility and virtues, it has a number of fundamental flaws that call it into question in the well-known popular expression: "There are three types of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics." The TS is undemocratic, because by virtue of “Augean stables” of its indices and entanglement, it is inaccessible to the people, even experts have a poor and very different understanding it.
The TS, by virtue of its attributes, is in many ways arbitrary, subjective, and amenable to all sorts of unfair manipulations, which gives rise to reasonable doubts about its objectivity and reliability. For this reason, it excludes a full-fledged comparison of statistical data from different countries and one country in different periods due to constant changes in its key element — classifiers and their statistical indices devoid fundamental bases. But it began to realize, pose and partially solve this problem since 1853, (the first international statistical congress in Brussels), leaving it fundamentally intractable in its empirical methodology and retaining its insurmountable fragmentation between its branch segments: labor statistics, population statistics, agricultural statistics, health statistics, etc. This fragmentation of the TS is institutionalized at the global level by relevant international organizations and UN departments. Here lies the central problem and the source of all the TS weaknesses/defects, with which it fights at regional levels, but without much success and progress. Since there is no better statistics, they use it, trying to somehow limit, compensate and damp its defects. TS is one logic, paradigm, statistical language and humanitarian science from part to whole, which is complemented and developed by another logic, paradigm, statistical language and a new humanitarian science from whole to parts, integrated by TT.
Another level of statistics and a type of statistical language of its specific spheral indices are spheral statistics (SS), which grows out of fundamentally different reasons: from logical/theoretical prerequisites of knowledge of social production spheres as associations of its branches and their spheral elements/components/clusters: resources, processes and spherons. This allows the SS to acquire a global/universal character and find a single, comparable application in a social system of any order and level from family to humanity as a whole. SS cannot and does not seek to replace/supplant traditional statistics, which is its feeding 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, retaining all of its necessary national characteristics. In contrast to the TS, the new SS is democratic, as it is simple in its logic and transparency, so it is available to the people. In the general methodological sense, the SS serves as a metalanguage and metalinguistics in relation to the object language of linguistics of the TS.
More details about the emergence of SS more than 40 years ago, its first steps, as well as the shortcomings of the TS and the relationship of composition and decomposition of indices of two statistics are discussed in the book of 1992 and later [Semashko, 1992; 1999; 2002]. The above briefly presents the fundamental logical foundations of the SS in the form of its axioms and base fractal matrix, and below its more detailed description.
Spheral statistics is the statistics of PIOT spheral resources, through which the statistics of PDEC spheral processes, SIOT production spheres and SIOT spherons employed in them is expressed. Spherons’ (P) statistics is the center of spheral statistics, determining peripheral/infrastructural spheral statistics. Spheral statistics are based on a system of special PIOT spheral indices that summarize, streamline and complement the system of indices of traditional statistics, which is still nationally torn and fragmented.
The foundation of spheral statistics is a basic matrix of spheral indices PIOT, which is capable of almost infinite scanning in the system of detailing fractal matrices. This matrix system is built on alphanumeric indices of the PIOT resource elements, called spheral indices.
The units of measurement of spheral indices can be generalized natural units or their units of cost, time, and energy. Spheral statistics of spherons (people) is limited to natural units of population, for example: millions of people.
It was established above that any society, including the global society, in statics is expressed by the sum of all its PIOT resources:
SOCIETY = P + I + O + T
For the production of each of the PIOT resources, an appropriate complex of their parts is necessary. Therefore, each PIOT is divided into four parts, necessary and sufficient as resources for the production of new PIOT. This pattern is expressed by a 4x4 base matrix of indices (above).
In it are:
P = P1 + P2 + P3 + P4, where P is the population, and P1, P2, P3, P4 are its spheral classes - spherons, necessary and sufficient for the production of the corresponding resources PIOT;
I = I1 + I2 + I3 + I4, where I is information, and I1, I2, I3, I4 are its complexes necessary and sufficient for the production of the corresponding PIOT resources;
O = O1 + O2 + O3 + O4, where O is organizations, and O1, O2, O3, O4 are their complexes necessary and sufficient for the production of the corresponding PIOT resources;
T = T1 + T2 + T3 + T4, where T is things, material goods and services, and T1, T2, T3, T4 are their complexes necessary and sufficient for production of the corresponding PIOT resources;
In its pure form, the base matrix of PIOT spheral resources and their indices of 4x4 dimension is:
L1 + L2 + L3 + L4
I1 + I2 + I3 + I4
O1 + O2 + O3 + O4
B1 + B2 + B3 + B4
All matrices of indices derived from base matrix are called “spheral matrices”, which form spheral statistics, fundamentally different from traditional (branch or industrial) statistics, but associated with it. All its indices are integrated into spheral indices, are classified by it in the spheral logic and are ordered in the sociocybernetic system of the structural social genome.
The strings of a spheral matrix express the outputs of the corresponding PIOT production spheres as their products, and their columns express the inputs of the corresponding production spheres that use PIOT as resources.
The dual nature of the spheral resource (and spheral index) as the output/product of the spheres and how their input/resource is expressed in binary, alpha/digital designation of these resources and related indices.
The entire infinite series of spheral matrices is built on the primary matrix base according to one algorithm: each string/row of any matrix turns into a column of the underlying matrix, and each index of the row appears in the underlying matrix as the sum of four indices expressing the complex of resources necessary and sufficient for its production.
This generating algorithm expresses the principle of "all in all." He makes the spheral matrices, their strings and columns, similar and nested in each other fractals, which are described by the fractal mathematics of Benoit Mandelbrot. He introduced the mathematical concept of fractals: "A fractal is a structure consisting of parts that are in some sense similar to the whole" (Mandelbrot, 1982). The knowledge of the “Fractal nature of society” begins from the spheral matrices of statistical indices if paraphrase Mandelbrot. This is a necessary attribute of TM as a “substantially new manner of thinking” (Einstein).
The system of spheral/fractal matrices creates a single logical network statistical space of humankind, the global statistical digital language of spheral indices in spheral matrices, which is able to integrate, compose and decompose across PIOT indices of different level matrices all the variety of national statistics, overcoming their inherent fragmentation, discontinuity and disharmony. Similar unified statistical system of indices ensures effective harmonious management of spherons nonviolence at all their levels and in all social units, overcoming any disharmonious possibility of violence/conflict, preventing it at the root.
Again, within the framework of a single spheral statistics, its center is the statistics of spherons, which constitute the sociogenetic source of the “greatest force of non-violence” according to Gandhi. This is the TT theoretical conclusion, which is confirmed by the real statistics of dozens of countries below.
1.4.2. Spheral indices of spherons as genetic societal sources of non-violence.
Spherons in general and the individuals who make them differ by the criterion of basic (in time) employment in one of the four spheres of society. (The employment of spherons is discussed in more detail in paragraph 1.6. of the GPS first chapter (Semashko&C, 2016). Employment of people is their universal life characteristic from birth to death. All other properties of people by which they differ — labor, property, power, education, and the like — are its particular manifestations and/or products. All the lifetime of people is production employment of those or other resources of society, including and above all themselves. In the framework of the multidimensional topology of people's life employment, its two principal clusters are distinguished:
1. Self-production or “autopoiesis” is the employment of each person by himself (“I”) from birth to death in such processes as nutrition, sleep, sex, hygiene, training, communication, rest, sport, healing, recreation, relaxation, etc. The term self-production (autopoiesis) was first introduced by Umberto Maturana and Francisco Varela (1973) for theoretical biology to describe the self-reproduction of living cells. In 1990, it was rethought in the sociology of Niklas Luhmann to characterize human communication as the main element of the social system. Self-production belongs only to the sociosphere, includes all types of human activity except economic/labor activity, which is allocated in a separate cluster of employment, associated with all other resources except its own "I". This “other” employment of a person can be called “heteropoiesis”, i.e. "production of other resources than I".
2. Labor or economic employment of people by other resources, except for “I”, i.e. “heteropoiesis”. As a rule, it is formally established by the norms of labor activity of the society. Labor activity is a part of self-production as a “work experience” or as a “length of work” of a person, which are part of a person’s life.
These two employment clusters divide the entire population into two parts:
1. A non-working (economically inactive) population, but engaged in self-production, ‘autopoiesis’ in the sociosphere, which is denoted by the spheral indicator Pn (“non-working population/people”).
2. The working or economically active population employed in all spheres, which is exhausted by four spherons, i.e. is divided between them and is indicated by the spheral index Pw (“working population/people”). This indicator summarizes the number of the total working / economically active population and is expressed by the formula:
Pw = P - Pn, where P - is the total population of the country for any year and Pn is nonworking population. From Pw group, the part of the active population that works in the sociosphere denotes by index P1w. Then the number of Sociospheron will be equal: P1 = Pn + P1w. The number of four SPHERONS is the total population. This is expressed by the simple formula: P = P1 (Pn + P1w) + P2 + P3 + P4, where the digit denotes the spheron number (#). This is the fundamental formula of the population/people of any community from family, city, country to humanity as a whole in the spheral indices of spherons.
The special methodological complexity is the understanding of the number of P1 (Pn + P1w) - Sociospheron, which covers the number of all non-working people engaged in the autopoiesis and the number of employees in the social sphere: teachers, doctors, social workers, etc. Why are non-performing (Pn) not allocated to a special spheron? Why are they united into one spheron - into a sociospheron (P1) together with P1w (teachers, doctors, etc.)? Because both these groups have one subject and the product of their employment - a person, but on a different scale: one (I, myself) or many - students, patients, etc. Repeat, all spherons differ by a single criterion: according to the subject/product of their employment, regardless of its scale.
Spheral indices, which are used to express spherons and their dynamic trends in time are defined as follows in the table:
Table 1. Spherons’ Spheral Indices. Classifier
Population/people in total at any level and any community from family, school and city to the country and the world as a whole. P = P1 + P2 + P3 + P4or P = Pn + Pw
Spheron-1, people who are employed (nonworking + working) in the branches of sociosphere (first sphere); P1 = Pn + P1w
Non-working population, who are employed in self-production (‘autopoiesis”)of sociosphere and forming the Spheron-1first part; Pn = P - Pw
Working population (‘heteropoiesis’)in all spheres and their branches:
Pw = P1w + P2 + P3 + P4 or Pw = P - Pn
Working population in the branches of Sociosphere and who constitute the Spheron-1 second part. P1w = P1 - Pn
SpSpheron-2, people who are working in branches of Infosphere (second sphere);
Spheron-3, people who are working in branches of Orgsphere (third sphere);
Spheron-4, people who are working in branches of Technosphere (economic, fourth sphere).
In total, the table contains 8 spheral indices, of which 5 are basic (in red), and 3 are intermediate, calculated (in green). Key intermediate indices of the working and non-working population in different societies balance in spontaneous (swarm) equilibrium in the range up to 10%, as a rule, towards the non-working, but there may be exceptions shown in the spherons’ statistics of different countries below.
The principal advantage of spheral indices is that they provide global digitization of all national statistical indices, constitute their common denominator, logically organize/systematize/integrate them and open the way for the digital economy, the digital global peace through digital/conscious prevention of all wars and non-violent resolution of all conflicts. Spheral indices aggregate and disaggregate the indices of traditional statistics using a special technology (SIST or GLOBSTAT), which we don’t touch on here, because it has been studied in detail in other works [Semashko, 2018; 5; 6; 6a-d].
The fundamental importance of spherons’ statistics is that it expresses their quantitative measure and dynamics as genetic sources/bases of non-violence by their nature: spherons objectively (spontaneously and stochastically) are aimed at mutual survival, precluding their mutual destruction. Wars/violence of their transient parts (partons) occur only in their conscious enmity by private attributes of power, property, greed, superiority and similar subjective passions and nothing else without any fundamental reason. The measure of spherons by private attributes can vary in a wide range of their statistical equilibrium and structural harmony. Going beyond this range creates various social disharmonies, failures, crises, pathologies, local conflicts and wars.
The law of the spherons existence excludes violence/war between them as a whole, because it leads to total destruction of one of them that will deprive the society/humanity of one of the necessary resources, without which his life is impossible and it dies. Therefore, spherons are actors, causes and sources of non-violence, which, in turn, is the only way for spherons to exist. Non-violence is the substance of spherons and vice versa, therefore “the law of non-violence is the law of spherons and vice versa”. History does not know and can not know a single example of the war of spherons and the destruction of one of them, because it will be the first and the last in the evolution of humankind. It is confirmed by the statistics of spherons, no matter how small the number of one or another spheron on this or that historical stage in a particular region. Even during the most widespread world and civil wars, no more than 10-20% of the population participate in them and never 50%, and even more so 100%.
Spherons are communicating structural demographical vessels of swarm nature: the reduction in the number of one leads to an increase in the number of others and vice versa. For example, robotization of the technosphere, reducing the number of its spheron, provides an increase in the number of intangible (non-material) spherons. This is the general employment trend of the future, as reflected by spheral statistics. Therefore, the statistics of spherons in the framework of the dynamics of their structural harmony is the statistics of genetic survival and sustainable development of society/humanity as a whole. No other branch or national statistics have such a fundamental advantage.
Humanity’s lack of such statistics of survival/sustainability as non-violence statistics indicates its infancy, in which its knowledge is still unavailable and in which the necessary sciences and tools are still lacking, including a sufficiently developed sociology and sociocybernetics that would be able to fill this gnoseological gap and to ensure the priority development of socio-humanitarian knowledge. But on this peripheral evolutionary epistemological path, two cornerstones appeared: Gandhi's non-violence embodied in historical practice of achieving Indian independence and the science of global peace/nonviolence, based on spheral statistics, allowing to calculate/digitize the “greatest force of non-violence of humanity” to manage this force for good of humanity survival, sustainability and prosperity. This is its non-violent future, armed with “a substantially new manner of thinking” in TT, which requires and ensures a non-violent intellectual “hacking present”, i.e. traditional violent and militaristic thinking, bringing us closer to the full ecocide/genocide (Pawlik, 2019, 60).
1.4.3. Spherons. Typical pattern of statistical research
A typical pattern of statistical research of spherons for a certain social object (humanity, region, country, district, city, enterprise, school, university, etc.) for any given year is presented by the following table of spheral indices, the numerical values of which are determined by summing by the traditional statistical indices grouped under each spheral indicator.

Spherons structural chart
In total, Table-2 contains 28 indicators, of which 8 are spheral, summing up 20 traditional indices (if necessary, their number can be increased). Their statistical error is allowed up to 5%, but it can be neglected. Of the 8 spheral indices, 5 are the main ones, and three (Pn, P1w, Pw) are auxiliary, calculated for the transition from traditional indices of national statistics to spheral indices of spherons. Other explanatory and detailed notes together with the simplest two-step algorithm for filling this table, accessible to any schoolchild who is proficient in arithmetic, (Semashko, 2018a)
Of all the features of this system of indices, we emphasize only one of its properties, which is of fundamental importance for calculating the number of spherons. Each subsequent matrix level of spheral indices précises the previous one. This process is endless, as the system of these indices is endless. Therefore, the calculations of the number of spherons at the first, basic level are rough, which are subsequently refined at subsequent, deeper levels of their integrity. In particular, at this level, groups of “specialists of different qualification level” within the spherons are not taken into account and do not differentiate that slightly distorts their numbers, but this error is removed at the level of a subsequent matrix of 4x16 indices, etc. This group is insignificant in number; therefore, the error in its number does not exceed the permissible norm of statistical error.
We emphasize again, the statistics of spherons is only the fourth, but the most important and difficult part of the spheral statistics with which it begins. Its other parts relating to other resources should be formed in the corresponding statistical studies, which are beyond the scope of our study of spherons. Therefore, we do not touch them here - this is the subject of future research.
1.4.4. Sources of statistics on working and non-working population
Spheron's spheral indices are calculated according to the national statistical censuses of the population in average annual rates, which are published on the network, but it is best/easiest to use the annual population tables by economic activities in terms of national statistics. Spherons indices cover the entire population of any country and its regions by 100% in its two eternal and approximately equal parts of the working (economically active) and non-working (occupied by autopoiesis) population.
All values of spheral indices at this, the first, and initial stage of their calculation are very approximate and rough. But they are sufficient to get the first, approximate picture of the number of spherons in the population of any country and any of its units “from a bird's eye view”. At the subsequent stages of the calculation of the infinite spiral of fractal matrices of spheral indices, their values are sequentially refined “under a spheral microscope”. Therefore, in the first stage, no strict accuracy requirements are imposed on their values, which are implemented in the subsequent design steps. If the initial statistical base of traditional statistics is full of errors that make up the TS Augean stables for almost four centuries, then we cannot demand absolute accuracy from the spheral statistics derived from it.
The Augean stables of traditional statistics are generated by the uncertainty, variability and incompatibility of their classifiers/standards/registries in different countries and regions, as well as in different periods and years of one country and one region. In the Spherons typical table used the classifier of economic activity of the EU in 2007 (?), which is adapted in some other countries. The names of such indices vary in national statistics. In the tables of the spherons of each country it is necessary to use the names of the indices of national statistics so that they can be found in the national databases.
An analysis of the sources of statistical data on employment, working and non-working population in their three types: national population censuses, statistics on the types of economic activity of the working population and data on the number of staff of organizations by activity and by category of personnel, as well as the initial methodology of sphere statistics is investigated in detail in Chapter 2 of GPS, with numerous statistical examples (Semashko&C, 2016).
1.4.5. Tetranet methodology. Organizational conclusion
The methodology of tetranet thinking (TT) has evolved over 50 years, including its most intense 14 year period in the GHA, in its 8 books and 68 peacemaking projects. The GHA has long been convinced of the acute social necessity of tetranet thinking as a “substantially new manner of thinking” (Einstein), capable of overcoming the biosphere ecocide and the nuclear genocide of humanity prepared by the West, providing a non-violent solution to the key problems of our time: global peace, complete and universal disarmament in 50 years with nuclear disarmament in 10 years, climate and environmental issues, renewal of democracy, gender equality, children's priority, international relations, primarily the USA and Russia, global governance at the UN level, interfaith harmony and others, to which are dedicated the GHA respective projects and books. Therefore, we intend, once again, to offer the UN and UNESCO, as well as the most peace-loving states: India, China, Russia, Malaysia and the like to create at the international or national level the “World Academy of Social-Humanitarian Sciences” (WASS) to develop the interdisciplinary science of non-violence and global peace based on the sociocybernetic methodology of tetranet thinking (TT), which has enough theoretical and empirical evidence.
This methodology still has no equal, but it is able to integrate all similar peacemaking and non-violent achievements from other approaches and approximations, raising traditional, partial thinking to a level of integrity and overcoming its flaws and weaknesses in solving global problems that are only exacerbated in it. The TT methodology for the first time opens up the possibility for social and humanitarian knowledge and sciences to emerge from more than a century of stagnation, depression, crisis, and backwardness from natural, technical, and military sciences, which, unfortunately, brought humanity to eco- and genocide by militaristic efforts and priorities of the West. Peace and nonviolence have never been the civilizational values and priorities of the West, with rare national exceptions of peacefulness. Therefore, its whole story is filled with wars and violence, which gave Gandhi grounds to qualify it as “satanic” and predict, “it will destroy itself” (CWMG). Therefore, the crisis of the humanities is natural for the West.
The trend of stagnation and the lag of the humanities from the natural, technical and military sciences, which created the “gulf between two cultures”, was noticed more than 60 years ago by Charles Snow, who called “to destroy this gulf” by the new scientific revolution, “as long as this gulf exists, society is not able to think sensibly ", i.e. non-violently (Snow, 1985). Since then, unfortunately, due to the depression of the social sciences, this gap has only deepened to this day. It is overcome by the TM scientific revolution of the humanities with their fundamental discovery of spherons as the "non-violence law" of Gandhi. only discovery of spherons makes TT the “substantially new [nonviolent] manner of thinking” of the humanities. Moreover, knowledge of spherons provides these sciences with the priority and advantage of integrity/wholeness over natural science, which can never master the integrity of the Universe and thinking from the whole to parts, due to the Universe infinity in space/time and the inaccessibility of its integrity to human limited by minimal space/time. Holistic scientific images of the Universe will always remain transient hypotheses that continuously replace each other in the history of natural science. Holistic knowledge is available to a human only within the framework of his social life, limited by the minimum physical space/time.
A human is capable of mastering the integrity of his limited social being in his humanities through the knowledge of spherons and through his “substantial new thinking” from the integrity of spherons to the knowledge of their historically transient parts and forms. "To destroy the gulf" between sciences and the humanities (between "two cultures") is possible only through their intermediary - biology, the object of which are biological life forms, which are limited, like people/society, to Earth space/time but based on infinite in space/time laws of physics and chemistry. Other forms of biological and social life, besides earthly, are unknown to science. U. Maturana (1963) discovers their commonality in the genetic structures of autopoiesis, which are socially embodied in the structural harmony of nonviolent spherons. Epistemologically, they become available only to TT in its methodological movement from the social integrity of spherons to the knowledge of all its parts in the entire infinite multitude of their transitory historical and cultural forms.
The advantage and priority of the integrity of the humanities in TT not only bridges the gap between two cultures, but also establishes a bridge between them, imposing social and ethical restrictions on the use of natural energies, primarily nuclear, for violent influences on the socio-and bio-spheres of the Earth. The discovery of spherons and the conscious use of their fundamental "nonviolence law" of Gandhi returns the sociosphere/noosphere of the Earth to the course of natural nonviolent being through the priority of "substantively new manner of thinking" - tetranet thinking (TT).
“A substantially new manner of thinking” is required not only by exacerbated global problems, solutions of which have not been visible for almost a century, but also by the intensive development of the Internet and digital technologies, which TT provides an adequate response. Its intensive and wide-scale development in all branches of social knowledge requires an WASS, free from the pressure of both traditional scientific institutions and the oppressive tutelage of general scientific Academies, in which social and humanitarian disciplines are marginalized and left in the back of financial and scientific stagnation.The creation of WASS will be a breakthrough of socio-humanitarian thinking and science from age-old stagnation and crisis. If it is established at the national level, it will provide any country with a world leadership in this field of knowledge, which will undoubtedly become the priority and most effective in the 21st century. TT gives a second life to Gandhi's non-violence, revealing its social origins and is capable of mastering and using this "greatest force of humanity", providing both TT and the socio-humanities with a natural title of "Gandhian Sciences and Thinking."
The past experience of our appeal to governments and international organizations convinced us of the lack of political will for peace and non-violence among their leaders, because they demonstrate only the will to confrontation, war and armament, whipping up their race and military budgets. However, despite this, we are convinced that this trend cannot be infinite and it will soon exhaust itself and break down in its internal disharmony and lifelessness. Then the need for “a substantially new manner of thinking” and its international development in the relevant WASS will become obvious. Therefore, our efforts will not be useless and vain in any case and in all aspects: scientific, humanitarian, social, peacemaking and political. Our innovative scientific searches and peace books and projects live with this hope and faith.
1.5. Summary. Two thinking: two destinies and two humanity futures.
"Hack" one, not to "die" and survive.
Our time is the decisive choice of destiny and future for humanity. His entire previous history led to the very brink of nuclear self-destruction, which would inevitably become a global ecocide and genocide, combined in a single planetary noospheral collapse. Its reason is realized by the greatest minds of the geniuses in the middle of the last century: Gandhi, Einstein, Snow, Kennedy. Mahatma Gandhi defined the dominant Western civilization as “satanic”, violent, which “will destroy itself” and saw the way out it in “the law of non-violence as the greatest force of humanity”. Albert Einstein emphasized the inability of traditional violent and partial thinking to solve the global problems created by it and ensure the survival of humanity, therefore, as he wrote, “if humanity wants to survive,” “we shall require substantially new [nonviolent] manner of thinking” as its salvatory alternative and addition. Charles Snow saw the mortal threat of humankind in the “gulf between two cultures”, between two methods of thinking: industrial, technocratic, partial and humanitarian, humanistic, holistic. John Kennedy summed up the tragic situation of humankind as an inevitable choice for it: "Mankind must put an end to war or war puts an end to mankind."
What has changed in this tragic existential situation of humanity for 80-60 years? Virtually nothing, only it became even more tragic. The real priority of humanity in the ecocide/genocide has not changed. Humanity as moved to its death in the nuclear “shameful self-destruction” since Hiroshima and Nagasaki, as and continues to stubbornly move towards it under the zombie melodies of the false global consciousness of well-being implanted by all mainstream media. The most recent fact of the priority movement to ecocide/genocide today is the decision of the United States to invest more than a trillion dollars in modernizing nuclear weapons until 2035, which spurs its race for the near future. This is what Joseph Cirincione, president of Ploughshares Fund, author of “Nuclear Nightmares: Securing the World Before It Is Too Late” (2015), says: “We thought the arms race was over. It’s not over. We are in a new arms race. Every single nuclear-armed country is building new nuclear weapons and heading towards a confrontation point. You’ve got to be a real optimist to think that you can keep thousands of nuclear weapons in fallible human hands indefinitely and something terrible is not going to happen.”
Therefore, today we are all in that tragic situation in which nothing remains but to “hack or die” (Pawlik, 2019). Maybe more precisely: "hack" to "not die." It is good that the West is beginning to understand this saving priority. “Hacking” does not mean forcibly destroying, as the author emphasizes, who rejects any violent revolution. “Hack” means finding a “substantial new [non-violent] manner of thinking” (Einstein), overcoming the deadly traditional industrial and technocratic way of thinking from part to whole, which is not only an alternative to it, but also complements it, retaining all its achievements and constructive creative opportunities. We proposed above similar, “substantially new” thinking - nonviolent, humanitarian, humanistic and holistic thinking from the integral genetic structure of spherons to their spatial-temporal functional historical parts, which cannot have any other priority than the life/survival of humanity. Therefore, it rejects and overcomes the priority of the ecocide/genocide of traditional technocratic thinking from part to whole, but retains and integrates in itself all its partial achievements and abilities that can be used for the common good of humanity.
“Hack or [not to] die” is a formula for a “substantially new manner of thinking,” a formula for acquiring nonviolent Gandhian thinking, a formula for “bridging the gulf of two cultures” and a formula for “put an end to war before war puts an end to mankind.” This integral multipurpose formula is embodied structurally and design in the pluralistic, holistic and harmonious tetranet thinking within the framework of the universal life “law of nonviolence” of Gandhi. The creative evolution of the sociocybernetic tetranet thinking is the best way to “hack to not die” in the Procrustes vises of one-dimensional and violent traditional thinking. This is the best, the only ethical and humanistic version of the future with the survival and prosperity of humanity, with its liberation from militarism and wars and ensuring humanity and human of the first, fundamental right to life, peace, harmony and non-violence. only on its platform do all other human rights acquire true meaning and lose their traditional hypocrisy, which without it remain a fiction in a violent militarist world order. The formula “hack so not to die” showed the path of the revival of Gandhi's non-violence in his second life for all humanity through the sociocybernetic tetranet thinking, with which everyone is good as the common good.

“Hack” the needle of the noospheral ecocide/genocide “or die”, or survive?
Dear Pravatji and Lucas,
It is very interesting to read your philosophical responses, which are consonant and focus on the center of our being - our thinking/consciousness/science/spirit, etc. Yes, Supreme goes on His own way, the meaning of which is revealed to people gradually, through our truths and through mistakes, delusions and vices of our thinking. It led us today to a 100% prepared nuclear noospheral/planetary ecocide/genocide against our desire, but because of the need for erroneous logic of violent/militaristic global navigation and narrative. Western civilization is 100% focused on war, on a race of nuclear, totally deadly weapons, on the priority of violence and "total domination in all environments" (Engdahl. Full Spectrum Dominance: Totalitarian Democracy in the New World Order, 2009: https://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=659). The navigation of this dominant civilization to peace and non-violence is practically zero, as is the corresponding funding of humanities, humanistic thinking, values and priorities. This civilization was very profitable for almost a century to prepare a 100% planetary ecocide/genocide, on the threat of which sits all of humanity, each living and each born again.
Yes, Lucas is right that time itself does not change our thinking. And God does not reveal the truth to us completely. He leads us to it through our independent overcoming of the profound mistakes of our thinking, which turned out to be traditional, militaristic, violent thinking from a part (from the private gain of the dominant private civilization) to the whole (the common good of humanity), to its survival, which has become hostage to the dominant center. God and Time give human only the right to “hack”/overcome his false/deadly thinking, or die in the slavish obedience of traditional fate and inaction, or “hack” to live and survive, to overcome the 100% prepared ecocide/genocide and eliminate it itself opportunity from the life of a rational and humanistic being 'homo sapience'.
This opportunity has been historically proven by the unique experience of Gandhi's non-violence. We claim to consolidate this opportunity with new navigation, priority and narrative of the world from the harmony of our "substantially new (non-violent, Gandhian) manner of thinking" (Einstein). Of course, in magnitude - we are insignificant dwarfs in front of the monster of militarism and its “Absolutely Evil” (Avery) - nuclear weapons. But victory will be ours, because only it promises life and survival. We have to prove this so that everyone understands this and “hacked” / threw out the old violent thinking, in order not to die, but to live and survive. This is the absolute superiority of our navigation in our Gandhian thinking. And it is our postmodern "heroic enthusiasm." Our discussion gives us new creative energy/inspiration! We value it above all. Thank you all.
With love in the joint creativity/‘hacking’,
Respected all Peace aspirants,
Thanks for such an article "Hack one, not to die".We must be optimist. We would have positive thinking. The beautiful world is the creation of Supreme. There is something which cannot be seen, but
felt sometimes. Tetranet model of thinking is the revelation of some conscious minds. We hope to become more conscious. The Supreme Creator is driving the Universe in His own way. We may not track His means. We can aspire; we can generate the innovative thinking in the ocean of Time. It may be helpful for establishing peace and harmony. But it is not the final. Day to day new concepts, ideas and thoughts are emerging as need of the hour. We are growing with explosion of knowledge. Hundred years before fingerprint was prevailed as identification. Now it is also prevailing as the same recognition through cyber platform. Robocon is very helpful, but cannot create or develop human consciousness. Can we transform our emotional intelligence to Wisdom! Can we accelerate our inner journey rather outer ones only! Can we transform our intellectual thinking to speculation or introspection! Can we share our consciousness with each other and with world consciousness or Supreme Consciousness! It is felt that these will be more helpful for progress in our path of Peace and Harmony.

Breaking the pattern of conflict, of violence or die!Time will not solve the problem! once we understand that a delicate balance of terror through the escalation of violence with ourselves and with our nature is not sustainable. Then time is not a factorWe see the pattern of conflict of in human history. It is our problem, nobody will solve it for us. Then the very perception is action is a decision. Then it's no longer a problem of the individual. It becomes our problem of the evolution of humanity. It becomes our task!
“Hack or Die”: The motto of “substantially new” nonviolent Gandhian tetranet thinking.
Discussion in 3 days.
Dear GHA members, friends,
We are happy to introduce you the new GHA member from Austria, cybernetician and author of a unique, ingenious paper: “Hack or Die” by PhD Lucas Pawlik, published on his personal page here: https://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=887
You may have noticed that the key ideas of this outstanding article are widely used in the “Tetranet Thinking Methodology” of our “Gandhi book” (https://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=848). However, to this day I have not had a feeling of the logical incompleteness of our Methodology. It lacks the definition of a post-modern global context, its most acute problem and the role of non-violent tetranet thinking in its solution. Today I found this definition in the Lucas formula “Hack or Die”, more precisely: “Hack in order not to Die”, which became the motto of tetranet thinking and was explained in its new “Summary”: see below the additional paragraph 1.5. In this regard, the Summary and the article initiating it by Lukas I like to announce their discussion during 3 days before April 20 inclusively with their motivated support and evaluation by your YES or NO.
My motivation. Lucas's article inspires, gives new creative energy and charges with “heroic enthusiasm” (Bruno) in understanding the role of non-violent Gandhian thinking in our time, which nonviolently hacks/overcomes traditional violent militaristic thinking, so as not to “die” in its 100% prepared nuclear ecocide/genocide and survive. This formula, from my point of view, is on a par with the formulas of Gandhi, Einstein, Snow and Kennedy, integrates with them and is consonant with the spirit and methodology of tetranet thinking. This consonance, humanistic value and scientific significance of Lukas’ paper deserve, from my point of view, thorough and in-depth discussion in the context of our Gandhi methodology, designed to determine the path of non-violent future and survival.
Another aspect is very important. Lucas' article on the global pole of sociocybernetics is consonant with another brilliant article by British Dr. Bernard Scott on the individual pole of sociocybernetics (https://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=886), which we have already written about recently. Between these poles is the tetranet thinking (Scheme-1), integrating them in its structural modeling and system design at four levels of third-order social cybernetics — spheres and spherons. This illustrates the unique scale and viability of sociocybernetics, capable of overcoming the “gulf of two cultures” (Snow) and restoring the humanistic and ethical priority of humanitarian knowledge based on it, so as not to “die” and survive in the “substantial new manner of thinking” (Einstein). I am sure that we will get great benefit and intellectual pleasure from discussing this article, its high meanings, integration and future perspectives.
"Gandhi book" Methodology was approved. +++ Its additions
Dear GHA members, friends,
I am happy to announce that the GHA “Gandhi book” first part with its methodology of tetranet thinking was approved as a result of its weekly discussion on two levels: by its authors and GHA members. We received many positive comments and suggestions and not a single objection. The most important responses and additions are published here:https://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=848 We are sincerely grateful to all who responded.
We plan to complete editing the book second part with the spherons statistics of different countries in 10-15 days and present it to you for discussion and approval.
The most important additions to the first part were initiated by the philosophical remarks of Dr. Olga Kashina. one of them is in the final paragraph 1.4.5. associated with the “gulf between two cultures” (Charles Snow) and its overcoming by the tetranet thinking. I publish it below for your narrative.
Nobel Peace Laureate:
Highest Evaluations of Tetranet Thinking Methodology
My dear and highly respected friend and teacher, John Avery,
Nobel Peace Laureate and "One of the greatest living intellectuals on Earth",
Thank you very much for your strong support and top evaluations of our common peacemaking “Tetranet Thinking Methodology” as a “substantially new manner of thinking” of humanity (Einstein) that overcomes and solves the most acute problems of the ecocide of nature and the genocide of humanity. They were created by the traditional thinking that is not able to solve them: Einstein understood it 70 more years ago and you emphasize it. We are creating a theoretical way out of this deadly intellectual trap/deadfall of humanity, non-violently “hacking” it, as Lukas Pawlik said well.
Your contribution to the “substantially new manner of thinking” is invaluable and it harmoniously integrates with the outstanding contributions of other authors of the GHA Tetranet Thinking Paradigm. You are well aware that the development and approval of this non-violent and anti-militaristic Gandhian paradigm is possible only through joint efforts through the integration of innovative scientific and peacemaking achievements. We highly appreciate your great self-sacrificing work of peace and dedication in this direction at your honorable age and health problems.
We wish you good health. Your selfless experience of serving peace and non-violence constantly inspires us, and your ideas constantly nourish our intellect and give us new spiritual strength.
With love and the best wishes for peace from harmony/íåíàñèëèÿ,
My dear and highly respected friend Leo,
Many many thanks for your extremely kind letter, and for circulating the list of freely-downloadable books. I wish you great success in your highly important work for global peace and harmony, using a methodology that you call "a substantially new way of thinking". Indeed, as Einstein said, "We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking that created them". Let us work together against the evils of militarism. I will do my best to contribute whatever I can, despite the limitations of old age, failing eyesight and failing health.
With love to you and to all other dear GHA friends throughout the world,
John (John Scales Avery)

Tetranet Thinking Methodology for Nonviolence.
Discussion and approval in 3 days
Dear GHA members, friends,
We are happy to send you for discussion and approval by your YES or NO within 3 days, until April 13, inclusively, the first, methodological part (22p.) of the GHA ninth book dedicated to Gandhi's non-violence. This part in cooperation of 19 GHA members from 10 countries can be found in the attachment and on the website: https://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=848. Here also published the most important responses of its English and Russian co-authors.
This methodology as a “substantially new manner of thinking” (Einstein, 70 years ago) determines the value and success of our unprecedented research of Gandhi's non-violence, which will be clearly seen at the completion and publication of this book in June.
The methodology of tetranet thinking has evolved over 50 years, but the most intensively in the GHA the last 14 years in 8 of its books and 68 peacemaking projects. Now it is published in the most complete systemic form of structural modeling in its four fundamental parts: ontology, epistemology, sociology/sociocybernetics, and statistics.
Each of you could make your intellectual contribution to this integral methodology and become its coauthor. It is open to the synthesis of all scientific additions and innovations. You could also offer your books and articles in its bibliography by linking to them in the text. (The work with the bibliography is the most difficult, it will continue until the book completion, it is now made up as a first approximation and has many flaws.) Silence (due to illness or travel) will be your sign of its support. All editorial amendments to the text should be highlighted in color so that we can see them.
We thank you for your active interested feedbacks, the best of which will be published.
Best wishes of peace from harmony/nonviolence of spherons,
A peaceful crying voice in the militaristic wilderness.
Do you want to find its meaning together? Yes or no?
Dear friend John,
Many thanks you for your email with a list of your outstanding peacemaking works, which has long been published on the GHA website and has been widely circulated many times in GHA peace networks. Now your letter is additionally published here: https://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=848 and on your personal page (below).
The GHA highly appreciated your unique peacemaking contribution by the highest GHA Honorary Title “World Harmony Gandhian Creator” (https://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=513) and constantly uses/quotes/comments your deep philosophical and sociological thoughts about global peace and the tragic "devilish" danger and the "Absolute Evil" of nuclear weapons and the West Military-industrial complex in all GHA books and projects. We are well aware of your venerable age (86 years), your outstanding peacemaking contribution, your deep civil concern for the survival/fate of humanity and your acknowledged merits in the following summary:

(Counter Solutions/Editor's Picks — by Binu Mathew, March 15, 2017)
Nobel Peace Prize Laureate (shared 1995 award),
Chairman, Danish Peace Academy, 2004-2015, Denmark
With your 21 books and chapters in books, and more than 250 articles both on scientific topics and on broader social questions. The most recent books include: Information Theory and Evolution; Civilization's Crisis in the 21st Century; Science, Religion and War; The Need for a New Economic System; Nuclear Weapons: An Absolute Evil; The Devil’s Dynamo (about Military Industrial Complex, MIC) and many others peacemaking and nonviolent Gandhian works. In more details see on your personal page:
Unfortunately, all your peacemaking merits remain “a voice crying in the wilderness” as well as all peacemakers of the past and present. Paraphrasing in a modern way: “it is the voice crying peacemaker of humanity in the militaristic sahara of ecocide/genocide”. This sad fate befell all the great peacemakers of the 20th and 21st centuries: Tolstoy, Gandhi, Roerich, Einstein, Bernal, King, Solzhenitsyn, Chomsky, Avery, Maguire and many others, including now your "Peace Academy" and the GHA for 14 years. This worldwide sad more than century-old peacemaking experience, powerless before the “Absolute Evil of the Devil's Militarism” with its ecocide/genocide of humanity, helpless before its endless wars, including world wars, and the endless arms race leading humanity to the hell of global nuclear Auschwitz should teach us to be alone: peacemakers are powerless alone with all their books and the condemnations of militarism, until they unite in the joint creation of "Substantially new [nonviolent] manner of thinking" (Einstein), opposing the deadly militarism and overcoming its traditional violent thinking.
As you know, a similar attempt for more than 14 years has been continued by the GHA in uniting peacemaking intellectuals with the aim of creating a paradigm of nonviolent peace manner of thinking. Its first version is embodied in the “Global Peace Science” (https://peacefromharmony.org/docs/global-peace-science-2016.pdf) jointly by 174 co-authors from 34 countries, including you with your wonderful epigraph to it, based on the discovery of “spherons” that define “substantial new thinking” in this Sociocybernetic science.
Now we are making a new attempt in this direction on the basis of a deeper and more extensive statistical (sociological and sociocybernetic) research of “spherons” as a substance of new thinking for understanding social sources of non-violence “as the greatest force of humanity” (Gandhi), able to resist and defeat deadly militarism with its traditional violent thinking. Spherons are concentrating and focusing in themselves all the social and intellectual force of your (and others) peacemaking anti-militarist ideas, integrating them with similar ideas from all the other 20 co-authors of the “Nonviolence Methodology” for the new GHA “Gandhi book”. I sent you and all 20 invited co-authors a draft of this methodology (22 p.) using your (and other co-authors) ideas in it on April 6, in the evening, but unfortunately, we did not receiveso far from anyone but the Russian-speaking co-authors one response.
If we, peacemakers, ignore/hush up any attempts to consolidate our anti-militarist intellect, then, voluntarily or involuntarily, consciously or unconsciously, we will work and work on militarism, on its strengthening, which is reinforced by the impotent fragmentation of traditional peacemaking thinking. If you and everyone want our peacemaking ideas not to die, but to live in a “substantially new [nonviolent, spheral and spherons’] manner of thinking”, then we are waiting for your active participation in the proposed “Methodology of Nonviolence”, which has long been called “Tetranet thinking”. (We remember your terminological doubts, but we still do not have any constructive proposals on this subject.) Could you let us know your opinion about this joint “substantially new manner of thinking”? Then your (and other) lists of vital works will acquire a fundamentally new, global (rather than individual) meaning, value and dimension. Do you want to find it together?
Peace from harmony/nonviolence of spherons, friendly and in solidarity,
Dear friends in the peace movement,
Below are links to some books that I have written about the serious problems that the world is facing today. All of the books may be freely downloaded. My great hope is to influence public opinion, and therefore I hope that the books will be widely read. It would be wonderful if you could circulate the links to everyone you know who might be interested, and urge them to do the same. Also, it would be an enormous help if those who have websites could post the links. With my gratitude for your help and warmest greetings,
I agree to associate with Gandhi book. Thanks, Maitreyee Bardhan Roy
Thanks you for your “agree”. But please let us know: do you read this book “Tetranet Thinking Methodology” 22 pages I sent you recently? You used it in your statistical researches of Indian spherons, did you find something new in it? As you know, this methodology has been confirmed in statistical researches of spherons of more than 60 countries, which will be published in the “Gandhi book”. Do you understand its well? Does it have any your questions? You have no desire to improve it? And what do you think of its significance for the new, scientific understanding of the social origins of Gandhi's non-violence as a sociocybernetic, as a member of the ISA RC51? As the author of articles on castes and varnas, which Gandhi strictly distinguished? Your detailed opinion as a professional of the Gandhi science and Sociocybernetician would be especially valuable to us. Thank you for that.
Greetings from India.
Re: Tetranet Thinking Methodology. Discussion and approval in 3 days
YES! I agree and support the Tetranet Thinking. Methodology of Nonviolencefor ninth GHA “Gandhi book”: https://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=848
Peace from Spherons' harmony to all.
Dr. Subhash Chandra, President and Board Chairman, GHA India
Tetranet Thinking Methodology. Discussion and approval in 3 days
We begin our traditional democratic procedure for discussing, editing and approving a new, ninth GHA “Gandhi book” with its first, most complex and most important Section “Tetranet Thinking. Methodology of Nonviolence" (22 pages), which you will find in the attachment and on the website: https://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=848 . This methodology as a “substantially new manner of thinking” (Einstein, 70 years ago) determines the value and success of our unprecedented research of Gandhi's non-violence, which will be clearly seen at the conclusion and publication of this book in June. But more about that later.
At the first stage, I am happy to invite to its courtship 20 GHA most thoughtful and experienced scientists from 10 countries, including 5 Russian-speaking co-authors, who have been participating in our books and projects for a long time and distinguished in either theoretical or empirical/statistical contributions to the methodology of tetranet thinking that develops more than 50 years, but the most intensive in the GHA of the last 14 years in 8 of its books and 68 peacemaking projects.
Of course, as always, everyone is free to refuse co-authorship for any reason (health, age, trips, etc.), telling everyone so that we do not disturb him once more. Discussion is also supposed in a wide range: from simple “YES” to editing and rewriting of any fragment or text as a whole. All contributions to it are welcome and become the subject of additional discussion. Silence (due to illness or travel) will be a sign of consent to participate as co-author in this text. We have enough sources from each, but you could offer your additional works to the bibliography by linking to them in the text. (The work with the bibliography is the most difficult, it will continue until the book is completed, it is now drawn up as a first approximation and has many flaws.) Naturally, all amendments to the text should be highlighted in color or one way or another so that we can see them.
Discussion is proposed during 3 days, until April 9 inclusively, but if necessary it can be extended. After completion of the discussion among the co-authors, the text will be sent for discussion and approval of the GHA members. These are the transparent rules of our traditional discussions, which I recalled again. We thank you for your active interested feedbacks, the best of which will be published. Best wishes for peace from spherons’ harmony/nonviolence,
The "Gandhi Book" key meaning – DEDICATION –
discussion and approval until February 28, 2019
Dear GHA members, friends,
After 4 months of preparation of our “Gandhi Book”, as a result of which we received dozens of contributions to it (Spherons’ statistics of over 60 countries, articles, poems, charts, diagrams, drawings and photographs), we now begin the final editing, composition and architecture of this book with an approved title “Mahatma Gandhi. Nonviolence Starting Point. Genome and Statistics.” Editing will be carried out in our traditional format of the past 8 books during 14 years (especially our “Global Peace Science” by 174 co-authors from 34 countries in 2014/6) - in the format of collective discussion and approval of the book main parts. Its publication in English and Russian languages with an approximate volume of 200-300 pages is planned for the end of March or in April.
This book has two functional meanings: an innovative scientific research, which reveals the deep societal meaning of Gandhi's non-violence as “the greatest force of mankind” and as a textbook for schools, colleges and universities for our priority educational module “School of Gandhi Non-violence” in 30 academic hours, initially approved in the project "Gandhi Committee" (http://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=854).
Dr. Alagan Annamalai, Director of the National Gandhi Museum, who has extensive experience in scientific, educational and editorial work in a wide range of Gandhi issues, is invited as the book second editor (http://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=872).
Today I am pleased to offer you for discussion and approval by your YES or NO (silence is consent) until February 28, “Authors Dedication. The Book Key Meaning" (below), which you could compare with the previous (November) dedication here: http://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=848
The importance of similar dedication is obvious, we do not have the moral and scientific right to distance or ignore it. It expresses our civic position as the world Gandhian citizens responsible for the fate of humanity in the 21st century before its younger generations in front of our children and grandchildren. But it can be with different accents and priorities. We offer you a choice of its two main versions that you could add and change.
Nonviolence Starting Point. Genome and Statistics.
The book key meaning
The book is dedicated to the memory of 138 million victims of 62 countries (71 million killed, 38 million injured, 29 million captured) of the Second World War (1939-1945) - unprecedented bloodshed/violence in the history of humankind with the intention to substantiate the Gandhian nonviolent tetranet thinking that excludes the very possibility of violence, wars, “shameful self-destruction of humanity”, “if it wants to survive” (Albert Einstein) and “end the war before the war ends humanity” (John Kennedy), which threat has grown many times and reached the limit of complete annihilation of life/biosphere through nearly 75 years after the WWII end.
GHA project: Spherons of Gandhi’s Nonviolence. Approval until November 6
Dear GHA members, friends,
I am happy to offer you for your discussion and approval by your “YES-NO” a new, 67th GHA project “Spherons of Gandhi’s Nonviolence”, dedicated to the 150th anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi in October 2019, during 3 days until November 6 inclusively, which you will find in the attachment and which is published here: http://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=848
Silence in this obviously important, useful and necessary project will be perceived positively. Active work on the project will continue throughout November and December, as well as early next year (January) until the publication of statistical studies of spherons from different countries (10–16 countries) in February in a special book: "Spherons: Generics of Global Peace and Gandhi Nonviolence. International Statistics and Sociocybernetic Paradigm of Harmonious Thinking."
Therefore, you and especially the coauthors of this book will have more time to think about it, and to make your own statistical research of Spherons in your country at any level and discuss it with a new book coauthors.
Best wishes for peace from harmony through science,
Dr. Leo Semashko,
GHA Honorary President,
+ Your statistical research of spherons
Dear GHA members, friends,
In connection with our project “Spherons of Gandhi Nonviolence” in the attachment (updated), the main focus and priority of which is concentrated in the Indian template/pattern of their statistical research in any country / city / university, etc., the GHA is happy to invite you to make your intellectual contribution to understanding key actors of nonviolence.
Your statistical study of spherons on the proposed sample is limited to filling out onLY TWO tables of about 50 indices, the search and summation of which will require no more than 2-4 days of work from you. Your research will be published in the new GHA book (see below), dedicated to the 150th anniversary of the Gandhi birth. If you are not indifferent to the fate of his nonviolence, then you could back it up with your scientific statistical contribution, which requires nothing from you except short time.
We hope you will not regret it for the great legacy of nonviolence, so that it lives a new life and not dies. Only in this way can you verify the correctness of the Spheron hypothesis or disprove it. There are no other scientific paths for this.
Best wishes for peace and nonviolence from the harmony of Spherons,
Project "Spherons of Gandhi’s Nonviolence" approved by the GHA
+ Against US/NATO Military Bases
Dear GHA members, friends,
I am happy to announce that the 67th GHA project “Spherons of Gandhi’s Nonviolence” was approved by the GHA and published in an updated form here: http://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=848. We received dozens of strong confirmatory responses and not a single fundamental objection to the project. GHA thanks everyone for its strong support.
In the coming days I will post on the site the most important responses. But the project renewal will continue with both new coauthors, and new researches of national spherons, and new responses. Nothing prevents us from returning to the projectseparate aspects, if necessary. The banner of this project, expressing its deep essence, which coincides with the GHA mission, was published at the very top of our website: http://peacefromharmony.org:
At the same time, with a positive banner, we published another, negative, anti-militaristic, but inseparable with it here: http://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=849
and its friends to support the Anti-militarist Conference in Dublin on November 16-18 "Against US/NATO Military Bases" (https://www.pana.ie), which number more than 1000, i.e. nearly 30–40 bases in each country as targets for nuclear strikes in Europe. Active protests against military bases are a powerful tool of Gandhi’s nonviolence.
We invite all GHA members
However, only fundamental societal actors/subjects of nonviolence, global peace and “The Great Peace Charter XXI” (http://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=834) – Spherons - can resist to military bases and militarism in a whole. Spherons determine the genetic code/matrix of the mightiest “soft force” of nonviolence/peace. The statistical tool for mastering of Spherons is revealed in our project. Therefore, the real anti-militarism and the conscious nonviolence of the 21st century begin with a scientific statistical understanding of the Spherons. Here hides the real source of peacemaking, nonviolence and anti-militarism in our century. Our generations are called upon to master it so that humankind received a real chance to survive in endless violence and insane militarism eradicating them.
Best wishes for peace/nonviolence from harmony through spherons science,
Dr. Leo Semashko,
GHA Honorary President,
Your national Spherons Table: 3-4 hours of your intellectual peacemaking work
Dear GHA members, friends,
After numerous discussions with you of the Spherons statistical researches for the GHA book devoted to Gandhi, we had to recognize the need to further simplify and facilitate the methodology of these researches in order to overcome the difficulties and goafs of the ‘Augean stables’ of the national statistics.
The integral response to this query became the “Typical Table. The Spherons Number of any Country/Region" (2 pages in the attachment). It is posted on onE page with 37 indicators and 10 operational comments on it on the SECOND page, which now allows you to limit this study to only filling out the table. This will be your great and original scientific contribution to global peace and nonviolence, integrated with many others in the new GHA book as a fundamental alternative to war, terrorism, violence and militarism in the 21st century.
I remind you that the general semantic basis and explanation of the Spherons statistics is given in our approved project “Spherons of Gandhi Nonviolence”, which I sent to everyone earlier and which you can, if necessary, look again here: http://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=848
So, now we are waiting for your statistical studies of national Spherons in onE Table, on onE page, which requires you only 3-4 hours of work on the Internet with your national statistical sources, until December 5 (it is deadline),to include your table in the GHA new book. This is a necessary and sufficient minimum for the publication of your research in it and for your coauthorship in it. You can also make this table together with any student with a calculator or Excell. Invite also your colleagues peacemakers and scientists. Your comments on your Spherons table are desirable but not required. This is a question of your desire. We have our common, “collective consciousness” (Durkheim) of GHA in justifying the statistics of Spherons, approved in our project of Gandhi, which will be published in the book and does not require its repetition.
All other details are in the comments in the attachment. Many thanks for your scientific contribution to global peace and nonviolence that will last forever.
Best wishes for peace from harmony,
Dr. Leo Semashko, GHA Founder and Honorary President,
Peacemaking revolution and our fears
Dear Susana, Maria, Ernesto and all GHA members and our friends,
I am happy to send you the first layout of the cover and the first pages of the GHA new book dedicated to Gandhi: “Spherons’ Global Peacemaking Revolution in XXI Century From Gandhi’s Nonviolence” together with your photos in the attachment (9 pages). We and all the GHA have done this peacemaking revolution for 14 years and now at its completion we cannot abandon it and forget 14 years of work, the previous 8 books and 67 projects in which you co-authored. During this time, no one has refuted it and has not offered any equivalent alternative. We cannot leave it at the finish line, which opens up fundamentally new perspectives for global peace and for all the co-authors of our “Global Peace Science” and its new book, which will be published next February. I am sure that if you carefully examine the layout of this book, then you and all others will largely overcome your fears of "difficult statistics." You have written so much and beautifully before about the peacekeeping of Spherons and now you can understand and feel them by any example. It can be your country, your region, your small city, etc., whose statistics are available on the Internet. If the main difficulty for you is a search on the Internet, then invite your children or grandchildren to it: they will fill you this Spherons table in 1 hour. We cannot be afraid of the Internet and work in it more than war if we truly desire peace. I think you truly desire it like everyone else.
Therefore, I hope that you will overcome your doubts. "This subject is very difficult to me" is the traditional psychology of the fear of the new. These emotions are also easily overcome, as arises from the well-known saying: “the eyes are afraid, and the hands are doing.” Spherons are not a nuclear bomb, but its gravedigger, therefore we cannot be afraid of them, but we can only rejoice, greet, promote and support them in every way!The complex statistics of Spherons in the past has now been reduced to the elementary arithmetic of 30 digits and their search on the Internet. There is no need for any special knowledge - only primitive operations of searching and summing up 30 digits. Please do this simple job for peace yourself, or with your children or grandchildren. There is nothing more to say.
I sincerely wish you success in overcoming your own baseless fear. We will be happy to see your table and your photo in this immortal peacemaking and revolutionary book that feeds our enthusiasm for peacemakers. Without it, we will die, and the future of peace will remain just as distant and incomprehensible as before. And in this book we will live forever! We are waiting for your Tables, poems, comments and suggestions in this bookup to December 1.
With love and hope,
This subject is very difficult to me. I never do statistics, I am a writer and I live very far from the capital city of Argentina, it is impossible to get any help for do this, it is the real situation and I hope you read all I sent about children and Gandhi in my last emails.
May be you can ask M Cristina Azcona, she is an author in this project of the book . I don’t know if it is possible to do such job of statistics here in Argentina.
Love and harmony, my great admiration and respect.
Statistics of Spherons - top for the GHA most worthy and viable minds
Dear GHA members, friends,
We have stopped at a crossroads, on our lifeline before the existential choice of the future and further destiny. This is the most difficult and important intellectual frontier of all the previous ones, which are marked by the GHA 8 books. The GHA's new book: “Spherons of Gandhi’s Non-Violence” is our crucial intellectual challenge on our difficult journey to the pinnacle of scientific peacemaking, which remains unconquered for humanity until now. only the GHA set this goal in 2005 and persistently rises to it for almost 14 years. Each step is a big job and a difficult test for the peacemaking intelligence of each member, as a result of which some are eliminated and new ones come. What are the signs and meanings of the current milestone?
1. Statistics of Spherons is a full-fledged integral and instrumental expression of our “Global Peace Science” - GPS (2016: http://peacefromharmony.org/docs/global-peace-science-2016.pdf). It is the most powerful scientific tool for non-violent achievement and maintenance of peace through the conscious / controlled structural genetic harmony of Spherons as actors and sources of global peace. Without this tool, global peace and its science is impossible. They are able to find life and reality only through this crucial peace-building intellectual tool, alternative to military science and any military weapon. Without understanding, mastering and using this tool, there can be no true peacemaking that achieves the goal of global peace and the eradication of all wars. The GHA realized this in 14 years in its 8 books and 67 projects. Now the GHA has approached, logically and historically, to test the statistics of Spherons by each member of the GHA in each country on any example in the simplest initial format of the elementary “Table of Spherons” of 30 indices that are filled in 2 hours.
2. only in the statistics of Spherons a fundamental empirical base of our GPS is created, in which it finds its highest substantiation and proof, without which it cannot exist and which not only all peacemakers, but also politicians, scientists, the whole science will have to reckon and all conscious citizens. For 14 years, the GHA has not found another, comparable to the Spherons, source and actor of global peace just because no other of their hypotheses have a similar fundamental empirical, statistical base covering 100% of the population. This database is created only by the statistics of Spherons, which, together with its technology, becomes the highest scientific peacebuilding tool.
3. It is known: every organ and instrument dies without use and application. We marked the beginning of the spheral statistics in its first and main part - in the statistics of Spherons. No one except us can test it and begin to apply it, at the same time deepening its development. The GHA historically approached the crucial question for each member: “are you able to show any example of the use of Spheron's statistics in your country?” This statistics have now become for the GHA an intellectual test of our peacemaking mind. This test will be held by the highest, best and most worthy minds of true peacemakers, who will make their contribution to the creation of the world empirical base of Spherons, which the GHA began to create.
4. Through the GPS and its Spherons statistics, the GHA revealed the deep and secret meaning of the greatest peacemaking ideas of the past century, Einstein and Gandhi, who bequeathed us a movement to peace through understanding, science, new thinking and nonviolence as the magnifying force that Spherons, their science and statistics give . only such peacemaking guarantees its end result and only it will continue the life of the GHA and its ideas in the future. All others will be eliminated, forgotten for uselessness, dissolved in worthlessness, withered in impotence and will die, leaving no trace in history. This is the bitter truth about the GHA and its members. But, as the proverb says: “bitter truth is better than sweet lie”.
Conclusion. Those scientists and peacemakers of the GHA, who will perform a statistical research of Spherons on any example of their country, will show themselves to be the best thinkers, true peacemakers and worthy world citizens. Their names history will save forever as loyal and dedicated enthusiasts of global peace from the harmony of Spherons. This is also true, as well as the fact that the peaks are far from accessible to everyone. The statistics of Spherons is a destiny not only of higher intelligence and innovative thinking of the 21st century, but also of higher civil responsibility and peacemaking courage.
You can find the updated Spherons Table for statistical filling at 2 o'clock with its almost perfect example from Pakistan in the attachment and on the GHA website here: http://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=848. GHA appreciates the remarkable statistical work of the Pakistani team.
We are waiting for your Spherons Tables until December 5 inclusively. Thanks you.
Best wishes for peace from harmony of spherons,

Dear Leo and all members,
Yes I support this project.
From China where I’m learning a lot and dance peace when it’s possible, and because next year our congress of poets ´ll take place in India, two great countries we need for establishment of peace inside humanity spirit. And Gandhi is an example to follow, change the world without the violence.... what a great vision for our future. I agree also with Guy Crequie’s point of view. Science is out of the necessity of opening the heart for expressing our common soul.

Through Amazon, I think, I have learned about an interesting book, Group Work:Cybernetic, Constructivist and Social Constructivist Perspectives, Raphael Becvar, Brian Canfield, and Dorothy Becvar, Love Publishing Co., 1997.The references cite the Mental Research Institute in Palo Alto, von Glasersfeld, Watzlawick, Brad Keeney, Ken Gergen and Virginia Satir.No mention of Ashby, von Foerster, McCulloch or Maturana.
I think we should have a potential members list that contains the names of everyone who has written a book with "cybernetics" in the title.I think there are plans to do this.We should invite these people to each of our conferences and ask 2 to 4 of them at each conf. to explain their work.Cyberneticians seek to integrate the traditional disciplines.It seems we also need to integrate the field of cybernetics.Stuart A. Umpleby, Professor Emeritus of Management, Systems and Cybernetics, George Washington University, 212 Funger Hall, 2201 G Street NW, Washington, DC 20052, M: 571-305-0085, http://blogs.gwu.edu/umpleby. A recent article:“Reflections on Systemic Problems and Solutions.”(Paper)
Your brilliant idea of collective/group work in Sociocybernetics (SC) within the framework of the great “collective consciousness” of Durkheim inspired me and deeply in tune with me and the GHA peacemaking mission, which we have been performing for 14 years together in group/teamwork. This is also necessary for SC: global science requires global, group, joint, and united efforts. Bernard Scott, Berndt Hornung and I started doing this 16 years ago (in 2002) in joint articles. Unfortunately, later, due to various reasons, and now, due to the state of their health, our teamwork has been interrupted.
In this regard, I am happy to invite you to a joint statistical research of the US Sociocybernetic spherons as fundamental actors of nonviolence on the methodology and pattern / template proposed by our team in the new GHA project “Spherons of Gandhi Nonviolence” (20 pages, in attachment). The study of US spherons requires only 3-4 workdays to fill only two tables with 50 digits only. You could invite a young assistant, a doctoral student or a graduate student asits co-author so that he can summarize about 50 indicators with a calculator. All the technical details and its basic justification, which you could edit at your discretion, you will find in the project.
I want now only to emphasize the key importance of your research of spherons in all aspects. This study will make you the first scientist in America who discovered this reality of non-violence for it, crucial for it rescue from militarism, which threatens to kill it and by its military budget has already killed it half (the US military budget is 50% of America’s budget and threatens its life). With this study you will be the first American in sociocybernetics and the first sociocybernetician in America. This research will be done in America inevitable, why don't you be the first in it? It also opens in America a new source for the development of the global digital economy - spheral statistics, which are more reliable and more efficient than oil, gas and not to mention weapons. You obviously understand this, so I hope for your research of the US spherons, which will be a breakthrough in non-violence for the country and a scientific breakthrough for social cybernetics. It will be published in the new GHA book, which I would now call like this: "Sociocybernetic Spherons: Generics of Global Peace and Gandhi Nonviolence. International Statistics and Paradigm of Harmonious Thinking."
I will be happy to assist you in this study and send you the addresses of statistical institutes in the United States if you want. With hope for cooperation in your “group work” in SC, in our GHA spheral statistics and in the global nonviolence of Gandhi. In all these - the benefits and success! (Could I post my this letter on the CYBCOM network?) Thanks for the response. Regards,
