Dear Maitreyee,

I repeat specifically to you my letter (below) and  two chapters (83 pages in 
attachment in TWO files) that I sent to all members of the GHA (via 
gha@xxxxxxxxxxxxx) on May 15. Please read and responds it. 

I do not understand why you did not get it before. Maybe someone else did not 
get it? Please, let me know it. Thank you. 

With love, best harmony wishes,


Dear friends of GHA worldwide,

I am happy to send you the two key chapters (83 pages) of our collective book: 
Global Peace Science (GPS): 
1. Theory of SPHERONS (spheral classes of the population) as eternal actors of 
global peace and 
2. SPHERONS’ Statistical proof, which is minimal but enough to be convinced in 
their universal existence and reality as eternal actors of global peace from 
harmony. These chapters are available here: 
www.peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=585 and attachment. They were edited by 
Bruce Cook and partially Robert Weir - we appreciate their work. 

These chapters are the GPS theoretical and empirical foundation. On it will be 
located the articles of about its 50 co-authors. By the GHA tradition, its 
innovative knowledge belongs to everyone, so there are no restrictions on its 
distribution, discussion and participation in it - we do not make it a secret. 
In view of the crucial importance of these chapters, they sharpen three simple 
questions about the abilities of each GHA member as peacemaker, especially each 
coauthor of GPS:

1. Are you capable carefully to read these chapters (83 pages)? - Could you 
read them?
2. Are you capable to evaluate them to formulate your own opinion (any, 
positive or critical) of these chapters and to express it in a few (2-5) 
phrases? - Could you evaluate them and to express your opinion about them?
3. Are you capable to write and send to all members of the GHA your public 
response with your opinion about these chapters on GHA Email: gha@xxxxxxxxxxxxx 
during a week before May 23 inclusively? - Could you write and send your 
opinion to all?

Of course, here, except your mind, requires your will, which the great French 
writer and philosopher Andre Maurois named by "the queen of virtues." From your 
abilities and will depends the scientific quality of our collective GPS, 
therefore also an honor of each of its coauthors and GHA in general in 
fulfilling our peacemaking mission in our anniversary, tenth year of life. The 
GPS following discussions will be similar: I will propound the chapters about 
30 pages with 10-15 coauthors’ articles rather than individual articles. It 
will be more intense and more democratic discussion format than discussion each 
of the 70 articles separately. 

Please, let me highlight the scientific and ethical situation with our first 
chapters of GPS. These chapters, which required more than two months of my 
work, starting in March, express a fundamentally new approach to understanding 
peace and creating the foundation of peace science for the first time in 
history. Peace has not been made in the last 100 years within the traditional 
approaches, starting with pacifism since the late 19th century. This means it 
will never be reached through those similar methods. Humanity will not be able 
to achieve peace without changing anything in its peace consciousness, thinking 
and education. The proposed GPS is a fundamental, revolutionary change of peace 
consciousness, thinking and education. The GPS scientific revolution of peace 
thinking is thinking by global peace actors from harmony: SPHERONS. Therefore, 
this book represents, first of all, GHA’s highest moral responsibility and 
requires from us, from its coauthors, high scientific and civil ethics.

This ethics requires from each of us active discussion, from which depends the 
quality of GPS. I rewrote the proposed chapters many times and am ready to 
rewrite them again after your criticism, suggestions and editing with gratitude 
to you. Your active position in the discussion is a key condition for 
scientific improving GPS.

In this regard, therefore, we will be forced to exclude from the book the 
co-authors who choose to be silent and ignore the discussion of the new book 
chapters, i.e., those who have self-distanced from it and from dialog about it 
with its coauthors - this is not the position of peace to neglect dialog. We 
cannot recognize the dangerous trend of silent indifference among us. For 
example, in our discussion of a very important and interesting article by 
Ernesto Kahan about military genocide, only 10 coauthors participated. This is 
a very low level of solidarity for our unprecedented peace book, which requires 
the highest level of consolidation. The coauthors and all members of the GHA 
expect active involvement from each participant of the book. 

Particularly high is our priority to estimate any of your editing on any piece 
of text or the book as a whole, as well as any criticism and your definition of 
the place of your article and its ideas in GPS and among its SPHERONS. This 
will be a beacon signal for me: in which direction I must edit your articles 
and reduce them to 2-3 pages. Only this format of ethical, friendly and 
mutually respectful discussion of our peace science from harmony is 
appropriate. Silence and indifference are disrespectful to colleagues, friends 
and our mission of peace. Any disrespect is unacceptable for GHA and its 
mission. Therefore, we look forward to an active discussion of each as a 
guarantee of our ethics and science. This discussion is also very important in 
our time, in the new acute global context, when we see a new round of the Cold 
War, nationalism, militaristic hysteria and pathology that can effectively 
resist just common scientific understanding of peace in our GPS. 

With love, best wishes for peace from harmony, 

Dr. Leo Semashko, 
GHA President.

Dear Maitreyee,

OK! Many thanks you for your efforts!

Please, let us all know also your public opinion as sociologist about the two 
chapters of the 
Global Peace Science (GPS) book. We could hope on this? It will be more 
important support for 
GPS even than your donation! 

With love, best harmony wishes,
