ABOUT THE AUTHOR

In pursuing World Harmony Renaissance we must be independent and truly


international and not relying on any one country. Even though we are
Americans and we are launching the first World Harmony Day from San
Francisco. When we do our first World Harmony Day Cultural Festival right, it
does not have to be big; we will be in an enviable position to pick and choose
sponsors. There will be no lack of Corporate, foundation and individual funding
according to Spencer. I agree whole heartedly.

Harmony belongs to the world. It is the order of nature. It is the most universal
common value that can divert our creative energy now mired in national conflicts,
religious strife, unilateralism and terrorism towards the next phase of human
accomplishment. Most of all World Harmony Renaissance must begin with
World Harmony Consensus.

Life is full of meaningful campaigns for some of us. During the 60's, as a fluid
mechanics major, I was swept up in "Catching up with Russia" rocket and
satellite research. In the 70's, during the declining aerospace years, I did key
research in establishing large scale fire safety computer standardized building
material tests, computer smoke propagation simulation to establish smoke
detector codes and standards. During the 80's I co-founded Aerophyics
Company and Finance and Technology Associates and was active in
International energy conservation technology transfer. My publication list in the
back of this book reflects U.S. national waves of priority like a road map that we
all traveled one time or the other.

Of late I am more cultural than scientific. My recent campaigns include peace


painting exhibitions, distribution of top quality music CD's and publishing of
Harmony Renaissance essays worldwide. That is why some of you get little gifts
of Song of Shangri-La album and Ting Shao Kwong posters from me. My World
Harmony Renaissance lectures appear locally as well as worldwide through
Xinhua News and World Affairs Journal announcements. I have come to know
famous artists, calligraphers, distinguished Western authors and record
companies. All my past endeavors and undertakings will add value to our World
Harmony Day Cultural Festival. I will not disappoint you. I have a dream; the
dream is World Harmony Renaissance.

My views on World Harmony Renaissance have broadened after the launch
of World Harmony Organization on Jan. 20, 2007 and the significant events
that lead to the announcement of World Harmony Day Cultural Festival on
March 7, 2007. I now believe America; the young dynamic country of
advocacy is where resources can be deployed to launch World Harmony
Renaissance. Please see Section (III) (D) “IT IS TIME FOR AMERICA

FOREWORD

I received many comments and questions since the publication of my papers


by Xinhua News titled “Chinese Harmony and American Democracy in 21st
Century” and “Chinese Harmony Renaissance; Can World Ignore It?” Nov.
1 and 2, 2006 and my book titled “China’s Harmony Renaissance: What the
World Must Know”, published on Dec. 1, 2006. Most of the essays were
announcement of new concepts on Harmony Renaissance and my response
to comments from the public. Important World Harmony Organization
announcements include call for World Harmony Day, World Harmony
Renaissance Centers, World Harmony Ambassadors, World Harmony
Volunteers and World Harmony Advocacy to pursuit World Harmony
Renaissance. Occasional comments from my conversations with Noam
Chomsky and James Fallows are also included. Most of all, World
Harmony Renaissance begins with World Harmony Consensus.

Many eventful developments have broadened my outlook on World


Harmony and World Harmony Renaissance in the United States. That is
why I come to firmly believe that America is the young dynamic country for
Harmony Advocacy. These events include the important meeting launching
World Harmony Organization (WHO) in San Francisco on Jan 20, 2007
(See worldwide announcement by Xinhua News on Jan 20, 2007, in Section
WHO Launched in San Francisco and the at end of this book). On Feb. 9,
2007 I presented my previously mentioned harmony book at the NABE 2007
Conference at San Jose Convention Center. Harmony World and Harmony
Renaissance were introduced, for the first time, to the U.S. main stream in a
public forum. The theme for the NABE Conference was “One Nation:
Many languages, Many Cultures in a Changing World”. The conclusion of
my presentation was that pursuing Harmony Consultation is
paramount towards reaching Harmony Consensus. World Harmony
Renaissance will release our concerted creative energy, by bringing us to a
higher level of human common value, to solve world conflicts, disparities,
unilateralism, extremism, terrorism and ecology concerns.

The momentum of all these ground breaking events has led to a great deal of
innovative thinking on Harmony Renaissance. One of the highlight was the
formation of the Commission of World Harmony Ambassadors and World
Harmony Volunteer Corps under World Harmony Organization. All these

7
events and resulting discussions were painstakingly recorded. With the
formation of the landmark WHO Commission it seems right to publish all
the records into this new book “World Harmony Renaissance: Promise for a
Better World.” The book climaxes in the preparation for the first of its
kind World Harmony Day Cultural Festival in San Francisco, California for
third Sunday of September, 2007.

Names of participating individuals are withheld through out this documented


book record to protect their well known status in the San Francisco Bay
Area. With few exceptions only the first letter of their last name is used to
keep records straight. My heartfelt appreciation goes to them. Without
them this book would not be possible. Special thanks also go to my wife,
Prof. Noam Chomsky and James Fallows for their support and
understanding. All material presented in this book are documented in email
record. Each email was communicated to the respective individual
concerned.

My views on World Harmony Renaissance have broadened after the launch


of World Harmony Organization on Jan. 20, 2007 and the significant events
that lead to the announcement of World Harmony Day Cultural Festival on
March 7, 2007. I now believe America; the young dynamic country of
advocacy is where resources can be deployed to launch World Harmony
Renaissance. Please see PAGE 73 Section (III) (D) and PAGE 84 OF
Section (V), “IT IS TIME FOR AMERICA TO ADVOCATE WORLD
HARMONY RENAISSANCE”. AMERICA WILL PLAY A LEADING ROLE
IN THE SPREAD OF WORLD HARMONY DAY.

I have a dream; the dream is World Harmony Renaissance. I will not


disappoint you.

Hi Dr. L and Mr. S,

In my last email I gave you Chinese material for your use in your press release
for the De. 9 World Harmony CACF meeting.. Feel free to edit for your
use. Here is the outline of my talk in English but I will speak in Chinese with
some English notes.

(I) The three main world cultural movements from prospective of harmony:
Religion, Democracy and Harmony.

(II) Laotze and Confucius teachings on harmony.

(III) From Scientific development concept to harmony society and harmony world.

(IV) China's harmony renaissance. Only by rediscovering ancient cultural roots


can China rediscover itself. China regains its moral high ground.

(V) World Harmony Organization, World Harmony Institute and my book.

Best, Francis.

Nov. 30, 2006


Dear Dr. Lee and Mr. S,

9
I like your opinion about the timely nature of arranging the World Harmony
Meeting. It shows you are fully in touch of the current international events. I
also like it because it is short and appealing to the intended Chinese audience. It
will be reflected in my talk. I also support you fully in attracting more people to
join our modest efforts. May I suggest using my book title “China’s Harmony
Renaissance: What the World Must know” as theme for the Chinese Meeting you
are planning?

My innovativeness that led to the formation of World Harmony Organization to


bring Harmony Renaissance to the world begins with:

(I) Harmony is world’s main cultural movement that is all embracing and
envelops religion and democracy movements. The world will never reach the
ancient Chinese concept of great unity (Da Tong) but it will reach a state of
dynamic unity in diversity through harmony.

(II) In the 21st century to solve the current world dilemma we need to go beyond
religion and democracy.

(III) China's harmony renaissance is rediscovering China's ancient natural


science as well as social science roots. .

(IV) China's harmony movement is the consequence of cultural revolution and


the current rapid reform and modernization. Both are historical events of major
world proportions. The Chinese Communist Party recognized it. They must
deal with the crisis.

(V) Simply put, currently China is strong in world diplomacy and America is
not. America society is stable but Chinese society must address the unequal
rapid economic developments. America foreign relation is at its lowest point in
fifty years of my stay here. Socially U.S. is stable because of democracy and
law and order.

(VI) By necessity the oldest wisdom and the youngest dynamic and powerful
nations of the world will have to build harmony together. This is the unique
opportunity for us true bicultural people to rise to the occasion. We are in a
unique position to work for harmony consensus through harmony consultation.

These are only some of my breakthrough ideas. Not every body will necessary
see it my way. We will continue to be pioneers in our joint innovativeness in
World Harmony Organization. Bay area and California is a great place to launch
the movement. Time is of the essence. You can count on mass following. The
work ahead of us is unlimited. Potentially WHO can become one of the biggest
world think tank in harmony importance. Together we can start it and attract

10
world support. Harmony World Organization properly managed will earn the
world's respect.

Do not let my rambling deter you. I promise my Chinese invitation draft will be
short and sweet and you will get it today. I wonder, to me personally, the
use of English is always more assertive and Chinese is more reserved.

Regards,
Francis.

Hi, Francis, Dec. 4, 2006


I strongly support you to motivate the awareness of Chinese heritage of harmony
culture. Up to this point, I am enthusiastically supporting Hu-Wen's domestic and
foreign policy. Hu's initiative on harmony is a very intelligent and
practical solution to the conflicts everywhere today. I like to support this
campaign and be a member of it. I am proud to be a Chinese descendent.

At the same time, I am also proud to be an American citizen. Whiling admiring


Chinese culture of harmony I am also admiring western culture of democracy
which rooted in Greece and spread out everywhere including China. The
problem of American foreign policy today should not be blamed on democracy
which I think Chinese still need to continue to adopt. My point is that harmony
and democracy should go hand in hand and be supplementary to each other.
Promoting Chinese harmony should not attack Western democracy. What
makes us Chinese here in California different than other Chinese elsewhere is
that we should integrate the excellence of the two cultures.

I am busy with my business operation, I just provide this short response. I have
to make a trip to China, I hope I will leave on the 10th so I can attend your
presentation on the 9th.
Regards
Mr. S.

Dear Mr. S, Dec.4, 2006


Thank you for sharing with us your view point and support. Harmony belongs to
the world. We welcome opinions on world harmony from all serious
parties. We invite dialogues. World Harmony Organization is non political and
non religious. We are forming various Commissions as shown on our
organization chart. We are starting with Sino American Affairs, Sino African,

11
U.S. Iranian, U.S. Korean and Sino Korean Commissions as well as Ecology and
Resources Commissions. Harmony ideal is all embracing, we welcome your
participation.

Harmony is unity in diversity. It accepts a multicultural and diverse political


systems world. As an ideal it includes democracy as a system to reach harmony
between its government and citizens. It goes beyond religion and democracy in
the 21st century to resolve conflicts. When there is world harmony there will be
relative peace. When there is peace there may not be harmony.

China's rise is not just peaceful rise. China's think tanks already dropped this
slogan. The right direction for the world is mutual development and harmony
development. America is a great country. It is a young country full of vitality.
Some of our leaders just need a strong dose of harmony. We are promoting
democracy too aggressively, even by war. Democracy is well known but it must
grow and be nurtured in each country's own soil instead of being
transplanted. America has interfered in China's domestic policy for more than 50
years. By rediscovering its own cultural roots China can finally lift its collective
head and be innovative.
Yours very truly,

Francis.

Dear Mr. Y and Dr. L , Dec 5, 2006


To assure WHO's political independence, balance and even handedness towards
American democracy and Chinese harmony I intend to have three American and
three Chinese board of directors of high caliber besides myself. This is
according to the strict advice of my corporate attorney as well as organization
advisor. Our goal is to win over the American main stream to be the conduit as
well as reservoir for harmony ideals. For harmony to take hold in the US it needs
to have grass root support. It is a high sounding goal but we can do it.

I have the strongest conviction that we are at the forefront of the universal tide for
world harmony. China's harmony renaissance is an indispensable part of
it. Chinese Americans have an advantage because of our cultural heritage on
harmony. Chinese traditional harmony is firmly rooted in our family unity. Family
is the basic cell of social structure. We also have the moral high ground this
time for a change. The West has the moral high ground for over two hundred
years now, because of democracy ideals. I already have two firm American
commitments to the position of Board filled. They earned my respect because of

12
their unique insight towards harmony despite their European American
background.

For China it is harmony renaissance, for America it is harmony solution for a


world harmony. We cannot slight either major power as well as all important
opportunity in five continents. The Iraqi Study Commission does not have magic
solutions. Norm Chomsky the single most respected critic and conscience of
America, does not have a solution for America's foreign affairs decline. There is
no lack of American think tank working on this major US concern. WHO
together with your support can formulate concrete plans for the US. These
plans proceed with harmony studies.

I will reveal some of my ideas this Saturday, Dec 9, 2006 during my Presentation.

Director General

Dear Dr. L, Dec 5, 2006


I welcome free discussion. I would like to stay away from negative political
discussions. Harmony is tolerance, acceptance, mutual respect and
equality. No country can claim the only moral high ground. I hope you
understand my independent position. That is the way to maintain credibility.

Francis.

Dear Francis:

I hope you are not talking about restricting people from discussing harmony
society and harmony country, at least during our first meeting this Saturday. After all, our
audience may not fully realize the central focus on Harmony World and Harmony
Renaissance which you intend to concentrate on.

Since most of the attendees are highly intelligent and well educated seniors
who would easily accept the idea of Harmony World, they are not the type willing
to be merely cheerleaders. Therefore I hope you would concentrate on selling the
concept ahead of your organization as the first shot.

13
As a courtesy to the sponsoring organization and its members, we may need to
allow them plenty of time for free expression. This I will discuss with you when
we get together before the meeting.

Subject: Dec. 9th,2006 Harmony Renaissance Presentation.

Dear Friends of WHO,

I hope you do not mind I continue to use the acronym WHO for World Harmony
Organization internally. I will explain later it is intentional even though the
acronym has been used widely to indicate another UN organization. Besides it
is such a nice word to use among us.

For all our meetings, I would like some cooperation to keep the discussion close
to Harmony World and Harmony Renaissance and their innovative ideas. We
are not going to discuss harmony society and harmony country at any
length. Let us leave that to the individual countries. As a think tank we will be
more effective focusing on world harmony. Harmony by my definition is
tolerance, acceptance, equality, non interference and respect for all countries
rich or poor, powerful or weak. We emphasize mutual development and
harmony development. There is no backward or bad country, only countries at
different stages of development. Harmony will be a universal goal if we all work
together. America and China certainly have every reason to learn from each
other. They are on the opposite of East and West and new and old. One can
improve democracy implementation the other can learn about harmony.

Between any two countries there is always complementary and win-win


development. Harmony belongs to the world and to every country. It is a
dynamic and multicultural development. Harmony accepts unity in
diversity. Confucius said "JUN ZE HE ER BU TONG. XIAO REN TONG ER BU
HE". Which means gentlemen prefer harmony over unity, petty people prefer
unity over harmony.

To set the mood, I would like to start with two simple fun contests with my book
as prizes. I will list on the board the following sets of names and terms:

(1) Bill Gates, Einstein, McDonald.

14
(2) World Unity, World Harmony, World Democracy

For (1) I will ask for the most innovative individual and why.
For (2) I will ask for the easier to realize vision. Of course all three are hard to
Achieve. I will convincingly explain my choice and why it is more achievable.

Additionally, no body needs to take notes during my presentation. I welcome


new ideas to enrich WHO. My delivery will be taken from papers in my
book which were published by Xinhua News on Nov. 1 and Nov 2, 2006 opinion
sections, and also submitted to NABE for publication. The NABE Feb 7th 2007
Conference is very appropriately titled to announce my papers to the US main
stream. It is "One Nation: Many Languages, Many Cultures in a changing
world". My harmony papers will certainly invoke some resonance among the
over 5000 American teachers who will be attending. American teachers are
most receptive and proud to teach innovative ideas.

Please pursuit your course, it is a great one and pretty advanced at the moment
in the US. I am just too busy with my business which I am going to promote in
the next year. So I just follow you and support you in this. But I still like to
remind you that we should not contrast China and US, I think Chairman Hu
doesn't like to be against Bush either. Harmony should first harmonize US with
China. When China act with US, things will be easier. I plan to stay until the 9th.
Mr. S.

Dear Mr. S., Dec. 8, 2006

Following email was originally a response to Dr. L regarding WHO must be


democratic and welcome diverse ideas and solutions. After he read the email
he suggested that I quote my line in this email "One day all countries will
understand the most appropriate political system is the system with their own

15
harmony." I just realized that this line is also the answer to your concern that
democracy must be served. I hope you do not mind I resend this email to
you. After all, harmony does include democratic principles to resolve conflicts
between government and its people. To go one step further may I suggest "The
best system for a country is its own harmony system?" The world should be
served by a multitude of democratic systems and not one single standard.

The whole rational but the whole behind WHO is to invite participation from the
broader believers. That is why we welcome research, serious opinion, seminars
and conferences on harmony. We intend to initiate worldwide harmony
discussions.

The US is more structured in harmony society because of 230 years of relative


peace and prosperity. American society is built with strong law and order.
Ancient China was firmly rooted in family harmony. China experienced 150
years of foreign domination and is facing the monumental task of reform and
opening up. Both are great nations. China can learn more about harmony
society by combining family unity with society law and order. America can learn
more about family unity and world harmony.

Prime Minister Blair is quoted in the press today as saying "In my view, the only
modern form of realism is one that has ideals at the center of it." This is a
sweeping statement worth pondering. Of course by his contents he means
democracy. But I go beyond democracy to harmony, harmony renaissance and
world harmony. Harmony and harmony society is not new. But harmony
renaissance and harmony world is new.

WHO believes in harmony renaissance, harmony includes democracy,


ecology and harmony will be the ideal that the should strike for. These are
innovative ideas advanced by WHO for the world to discuss and debate. Further
more, the political system with Chinese characteristics is a political system with
Chinese harmony. These ideas were contained in WHO’s book "China's
Harmony Renaissance- What the World Must Know." For China, the ideal
political system with Chinese characteristics is a political system with Chinese
harmony. One day all countries will understand the most appropriate political
system is the system with their own harmony.

Again WHO welcomes innovative ideas and solutions and encourages


participation in rallying the world to begin discuss world harmony. I believe there
is already a major movement in China debating harmony society. I hope it will
lead to harmony renaissance in China. We in the US are in a unique position to
initiate world harmony innovative thinking. We will be remembered as pioneers.

Email to attendees after the Dec.9th, 2006 meeting sponsored by CACF.

Dear Friends, Dec. 10, 2006


I appreciate very much for your support and participation at the Dec. 9, 2006 talk
"China's Harmony Renaissance-What the World Must Know" based on my book
of the same title. There was a report, short and sweet, written by Daniel Zhao,
published by World Journal Dec 10th that is note worthy. I did not have a
chance to check China Press yet. I noticed that the Chief Editor William Que
was at the meeting also.

I must also thank those dear friends who has given me valuable constructive
ideas and comments to further World Harmony before and during the
meeting. Your support is very much appreciated. The comments can be
classified in two major categories. They are importance of American democracy
on world stage, and how we can combine it with China’s harmony renaissance to
attract American main stream. This hits the nail on the head and is the
most important first task for WHO.

During the meeting we accepted the fact that America and China are both great
countries, one is ancient and rich in harmony heritage and the other is young and
vibrant, model of Western democracy. In today’s farewell speech Annan asked
the question, "You American did so much in the last century, to build an effective
multilateral system, with the United Nations at its heart. Do you need it less
today, and does it need you less than 60 years ago?"

To put it simply China needs to expand domestic democracy and America needs
a dose of world harmony awareness. I believe the tide is with us and the timing
is right for us to bring both countries working together. For this reason I am
working on expanding one of my paper on democracy and harmony, twin pillars
of world culture, to pose the question that you all asked in the Dec. 9
meeting. How can we bring theory into action? I need your comments and
Suggestions.

To take our ideas into action I called it world harmony action and
teaching(WHAT), I propose a bay area main stream conference supported by
universities and think tanks and sponsored by major corporations. The title of
the conference can be timely called "American Democracy and China's Harmony
Renaissance-In Search of Multinational Solutions." I put America in front
because it will attract Americans and their pride. But ultimately harmony stands
for multilateralism and tolerance. Multilateral democracy is the building of world
harmony.

17
Please email your comments and stay tune on. I look forward to meet with
those who are excited to work together to discuss WHO and WHAT and make
the conference a success.

Yours Very Truly,

Subject: My book "China's harmony renaissance, what the world must know"

I have read many of your books. I feel the same way with you in many world
affairs issues. I believe the solution to world political ills is a heavy dosage of
harmony through education and world wide consensus. World Harmony
Organization is a U.S. non profit, non political and non religious think tank.
My short book titled "China's harmony renaissance, what the world must know",
A compilation of my creative harmony essays, is intended to revive America main
stream interest to discuss harmony as an alternate way of life.
Two of my essays on world harmony in my first book have been published by
Xinhua net and two will be published by NABE at the Feb. 7, 2007
conference,"One nation multi language and culture in a changing world."
I respect your views on world affairs and like to request your review of my first
published book, which I can email to you. Mr. James Fallows is a friend of mine;
I have also requested his review.

Dear Friends, Dec. 20, 2006

World Harmony Organization is a non profit, non political and non religious
organization dedicated to the pursuit of world harmony consensus. We advocate
the pursuit of solving world, environmental, government, society and any other
human conflicts and imbalances through harmony consultation and
consensus. Harmony is a scientific way to assure better and more sustainable
world development.

We believe time is right for world harmony renaissance and harmony belongs to

19
the world. In America we practice harmony consensus beginning with U.S.
China harmony. We also suggest that harmony belief and approaches be
immediately adopted to solve Iraqi and all other U.S. foreign affairs
issues. Already we have received strong interest and support from a number of
governments on harmony as world affairs solution and on my book "China's
harmony renaissance-What the world must know."

You are especially invited to comment and participate in the pursuit of world
harmony renaissance through World Harmony Organization. Please click on

Season's greetings and Harmony to all.

Dear Professor Chomsky, Dec, 28,2007

Does world harmony renaissance has a chance on world stage facing the
powerful Western democracy institutions, NGO's and dominant media? This is a
question most likely in all Easterners minds but a little self conscious to ask. But
the question is out and looking at us squarely in the face. In my last email I
answered it indirectly by suggesting what WHO can do to address the
concern. Specifically I suggest that we apply harmony, monitor the lack or
success of democracy in international political arena and support the
UN. Harmony is as real as democracy but more encompassing.

I am very confident that harmony renaissance will come because it is developed


from the order of nature and it is an all embracing concept. Without hesitation I
predicted before that in the 21st Century Harmony and Democracy will be equally
important as world ideals. Ultimately harmony embraces democracy but that will
take more effort to sink in, may be another century. Under the assertive
questioning by Stephanopolis on Christmas eve, 2006, Ban Ki-Moon, our new UN
Secretary General, barely managed one statement of his own "I am interested in
working for harmony." But that is a very important beginning.

Harmony and democracy will be equally accepted by the world. Just as harmony
promotes ecology, harmony will surely promote democracy also. Harmony is the
ultimate consensus of nature and mankind, it resolves all dynamic
imbalances. When dynamic balance is achieved harmony is reached. In fluid
mechanics one must look for dynamic balance as beautifully represented by the
Daoist life sign.

Both Laotze and modern quantum physics are in agreement that the universe is
mostly dark energy and the assertive visible matters are but a small part of the

20
universe. Democracy as part of harmony ideal is all embracing soft(dark)
energy. Democracy only becomes hard energy when it is forcefully
promoted. One must be instep with soft harmony by pursuing and advocating
harmony and not forcefully promoting it.

As a fluid mechanics major I liken harmony to water. It sustains life. Where


there is water there is life. If not managed well it will soon be in shortage. It seeks
harmony and tranquility when it is in balance. It moves around obstacles. It wets
and infiltrates all the time. It flows freely and fills all reservoirs to full when
available. When contained it builds up pressure until it is relieved. When
imbalance is allowed to built, it can cause the greatest waves if not addressed. It
can float and sink a boat. Given time it can bore through the hardest rock. It is
unyielding and triumphs over force. The essence of harmony is tolerance,
accepting, respect, equality and patience. It is the ultimate of human virtue
and the very nature of the soft(dark) energy that is the universe.

Incidentally in space, in the absence of gravity, water still creates waves through
its dominant but minute surface tension and capillary forces. This
weightlessness phenomenon was one of my published research papers during
the early space travel days of the 1960's. My innovative analytical discovery was
subsequently substantiated by experiments performed by other researchers.

Season's greetings and harmony to all.

Subject: World Harmony Renaissance

I respect your expertise on world affairs and would like to request your support. I
believe world harmony renaissance can be the solution for some of today’s world
problems. The following issue is raised by another advisor of WHO. Please
respond and comment on my concern of Western media world dominance. .

I agree there are many Western Universities and think tanks of high caliber
specialize in world affairs. My interest also happens to be in world affairs ever
since my advocacy in the International Relation Club at Brown University some
fifty years ago. Despite the abundance of research and foreign affairs publication

21
pouring out of the Western media there is still yet any significant reference to
world harmony renaissance as solution to world conflicts. However, we hear
Asian leaders including China's president Hu Jintao and the new UN Secretary
General Ban Ki - Moon start to mention harmony as world solution. President Hu
in a major 60th UN anniversary speech announced World harmony as solution to
world conflicts. Ban Ki-Moon on Christmas eve, 2006 amid pressure from
George Stephanopolis to support US foreign policy responded by saying the one
crucial point of that interview. What he said was; "I am interested in working for
harmony."

The Iraq Study Group Report headed by Baker and Hamilton included the effort of
many experts and prestigious think tanks such as Institute of Policy Studies and
American Enterprise Institute. The report suggested major change in US foreign
policy direction by opening dialogues in Middle East and include Iran and
Syria. It fell short of suggesting consultation in harmony. All countries old and
new have their different historical background and culture that in part explain that
East is East and West is West. It seems that the East is more ready to talk about
harmony renaissance and the West favors the promotion of democracy as world
solution. Ever since the enlightenment period of 1600 the West has managed
the promotion of democracy. Democracy is well known today and it affected the
world in an earth shaking way. China lost its heritage in dealing with the western
democracy movement for at least 150 years.

A country can have democracy but not necessary harmony. But a country has
harmony has its own democratic consensus. Harmony practice is necessary and
urgent to assure stability and sustainable development. The best system for any
country is its own harmony system. On the present worldwide consumer rush the
world will face great resources shortage sooner than we think. World harmony
also embraces ecology and resource conservation.

I predict world harmony renaissance will surely come. In time, it will become a
worldwide tide. I am preparing to turn over World Harmony Organization and its
affiliated Commissions at the earliest moment when UN is ready. In the mean
time I will play my small role to encourage the active formation of World Harmony
Institute to study harmony theory and practice and call for worldwide conferences
and World Harmony Forum to promote world dialogue on harmony
solutions. World Harmony Organization is dedicated to the advocacy and pursuit
of world harmony consensus. In this spirit, WHO chapter in the US is requesting
support to organize the Sino-America Harmony Commission, The Resource and
Ecology Commission, World Harmony Cultural Commission and World Harmony
Commission which will publish annual and periodic reports by World Harmony
Watch. I appreciate all comments and suggestions. Francis.

22
To: Francis, I doubt that you will find much of an opening in the US
media. Among national newspapers, possibly the Christian Science Monitor,
quite a respected national daily.

Dear Prof Chomsky,


Thank you for your insight and encouragement. I wish to submit my last two
emails as responses to typical concerns on harmony movement. May be it will
boast the confidence of those who are on the fence. Can you suggest the right
forum in US media? You are the leading experienced and most respected
activists. Francis.

Noam Chomsky <chomsky@MIT.EDU> wrote: Dec 28, 2007


Read your letter with interest. On the West, it is not true that it has sought
to promote democracy. The truth is conceded even by the most dedicated
scholar/activists involved in "democracy promotion," like Thomas
Carothers. He finds that all American leaders are "schizophrenic". They
support democracy if and only if it accords with strategic-economic
objectives. He is reviewing only the period from 1980 to the
present. Before that, there is hardly even a pretense of promoting
democracy. The European record is far worse.

Calling for world harmony is wise and sensible. That is what activists do all
the time; in the international global justice movement, for example. Your
efforts are certainly most welcome in that regard. We each pick the ways
we feel are most likely to be effective.

Dear Prof. Chomsky,

I am very honored to communicate with you. Very few people inspired me with
professionalism as you do. I am dedicated to world harmony renaissance and
world harmony consensus. I am a simple man in a complex world. I need your
advice in working with the American people on harmony. Based on your last
comment to me that "Calling for harmony is wise and sensible" I believe we have
some common ground to build on. America, with prosperity and stability for over
three hundred years, has reasonable social harmony but in foreign affairs it could
use more harmony.

China like many countries in the world is profoundly perturbed by Western


democracy and Western science. For over 150 years China has been struggling
for modernization as demonstrated by Sun Yatsen's democracy revolution, Mao
Zedong's anti imperialism revolution, the cultural revolution and the
current opening up and reform. The year 2002 China's leadership in dealing with
the rapid disproportionate economic growth came up with the concept of scientific
development. That eventually led to the current harmony society policy. China's
hope of achieving harmony within and without must be firmly grounded in reviving
its ancient harmony heritage. That is a long story.

In the East my essay on harmony renaissance and harmony consensus struck


the chords of many in and out of the government. I have the support of some
Asian and African leaders. I see hope but a lot of work remains to be done. In my
perspective, socialism with Chinese characteristics is socialism with Chinese
harmony. China needs harmony to complete its journey towards real
democracy. The best system for any country is its own harmony system
otherwise it cannot achieve stability. Stability goes beyond ideology. I also
believe harmony belongs to the world and world harmony consensus must have
U.S. China cooperation. That is where your help comes in. I am looking for
your advice on a game plan to reach the American people, hopefully the main
stream. Your experience in activism is vast. American people need to
be awakened to the ideal of harmony to moderate U. S. foreign policy. Despite
the admirable effort the Iraq Study Group Report did not do it. Francis.

(C) ENDORSEMENT LETTERS FROM LEADERS OF AFRICAN
NATIONS

Dr. Francis Fung, PhD.


World Harmony Organization
514 Arballo Drive
San Francisco, CA 94132

Dear Dr. Francis Fung:

Thank you for the copy of China’s Harmony Renaissance. I read it, with great interest,
particularly that, as stated in the Foreword, the common desire of the peoples of the world
is for peace and harmony. The people of the world do indeed desire peace, development,
equality, and justice. Your book sets out an interesting alternative path, based as you say
on Chinese philosophical principles, to the domination by a single country through
military power.

Your book calls for renunciation of force and violence and for the growth of multicultural
human society, with each society emphasizing its own cultural and traditional values,
respecting differences and working together for balance relationships of mutual trust and
understanding. This is a strong alternative to the emphasis on conflict, the emphasis on
differences, and the forced shaping of nations into one common mold.

The book is more than a work of philosophy and political science. It is an interesting and
thoughtful analysis of the development of Chinese language, culture and history. I believe
it would be useful, for example, as a textbook on modern Chinese society.

For these reasons, I believe it would be useful to my country to acquire copies of the work
to use in our schools and universities, as well as to distribute to political leaders and others
interested in building stronger lasting international relationships. We have prepared a list
of recipients, including libraries and schools, and believe that 10,000 copies would be
well received. Please let me know if this is possible.

I want to say again how impressed I was by the book, and to tell you that we are excited
about the prospect of opening a dialog with leaders who understand the principles that you
have set out. Perhaps you could provide me also with a list of people from the World
Harmony Organization or from China who might be interested in participating in seminars
and discussions along these lines.

Dear Dr. Fung,

Through our dear mutual friend Mr. Lee P. Der’s recommendation I read and reviewed
your two harmony papers published by Xinhuanet under Opinion page on Nov. 1st 2006
and Overseas Opinion page on Nov. 2nd 2006. The papers are excerpts from your
original and innovative papers and titled “Chinese harmony and American democracy in
21st century” and “Chinese harmony renaissance: Can the world ignore it?”. I greatly
appreciate and share the depth and creative insight of your world harmony vision. Your
pioneering papers not only will inspire all of us who wish to learn more about China’s
harmony renaissance but also set the tone of rallying cry for world harmony development.
Your original thinking and contribution can serve as overseas beach heads for the transfer
of Chinese harmony renaissance old and new initiated by President Hu Jintao to the
world. Socialism with Chinese characteristics is socialism with Chinese harmony.

We as a harmony loving nation in the African continent endorses and supports the
missions of your nonprofit and non political World Harmony Organization. We believe it
is noble to conduct and promote studies in harmony theories and their applications in
national administrations, foreign policies, international relations and world affairs. By
creating the stage for hundred flowers bloom and hundred of schools contend, your World
Harmony Organization can help to spread constructive discussions and practices of world
harmony. With the shared vision, we boldly declare together, “World Harmony will
surely come!”

Your book titled “Chinese harmony renaissance-What the world must know” was hand
delivered to me by Mr. Der. With the collection of your informative and educational
harmony essays in your book we believe it will advance the cause of harmony world by
general distribution. Consequently, we have prepared a distribution list to our
government and non government agencies, libraries, educational institutes and etc to
maximize the positive teaching and spread of Chinese harmony renaissance. I personally
believe our effort to support President Hu Jintao’s initiative will receive favorable
endorsement from the Chinese government and its worldwide embassies. To assist China
to distribute this innovative primer in teaching Chinese harmony renaissance we would
like to request that 10,000 copies of your book be delivered to us through the Chinese
Embassy. Your books will deliver timely and needed messages to awaken and reinforce
our people’s longing for world harmony . In view of today’s unilateralism and
extremism there is no better time to teach harmony. Time is of the essence.

Dear Mr. Burek,

I have been a follower of The Christian Science Monitor international news ever
since my undergraduate days at Brown University during the 50's. My
roommate, James Townsend, was a Christian Scientist and I was influenced by
him.

I have been writing timely articles about World Harmony Renaissance that have
been published by Xinhua net and accepted for publication by NABE Feb.2007
Conference. Some of the earlier published articles were compiled in a book
titled China's Harmony Renaissance- What the world must know, published by
World Harmony Organization.

Since the publication of my world harmony renaissance articles and book, I have
received many comments and questions from meetings, emails and private
discussions. As a result I am working on another book that will be titled World
Harmony Renaissance, Hope for a More Understanding World. It will be my
answers and comments to the worldwide response to my publications.

Prof. Noam Chomsky recommended that I submit some of my timely world affairs
comments on harmony for advanced preview before the publication of my
second book. He highly recommended Christian Science Monitor and your
column. The following three short world harmony renaissance opinion articles
are each under 750 words and may be of great timely interest to your reader
and the world at this critical juncture.

The three short opinion articles are titled:


(I) Does World Harmony Renaissance have a Chance on World Stage?
(II) Harmony is natural Science
(III) Cross Strait Harmony: Solutions for China and Taiwan
I am considering submitting these current world affairs articles for worldwide
distribution before it is complied into my second book. You may choose two of
the articles and I will be glad to submit to you for possible publication. Kindly
respond and advise.

HARMONY IS NATURAL SCIENCE

Harmony is human science developed from natural science. The order of nature
is dynamic balance in pursuit of harmony as illustrated by the Daoist sign of
life. Einstein said that God does not play dice with
nature. Another way of putting it is "Nature seeks harmony and harmony is the
order of nature." The seasons we observed, the occurrences of floods, typhoons
and tsunamis are all testimonials of natural acts seeking harmony. They are
large events in the victims' life, but small dynamic balances to achieve
harmony compared to the size of the earth. These natural phenomena are
caused by pressure and temperature imbalances. Human beings are endowed
with intellects that are above natural phenomena. Our ideology differences can
create wars that are more destructive than any earthly natural forces. We
believe we can control nature. In reality human beings are part of the natural
order. All ideology struggles are imbalances that must eventually return to
harmony, the order of nature. Peace can only be temporary without
harmony. Harmony is the ultimate human virtue of tolerance, respect,
acceptance, and patience with other cultures, religions, political systems and
ideologies.

The universe was created by dark energy (the Ying), by virtue of the dynamic
creation process the universe will continue to expand at an enormous scale. In
Dao De Jing, Dao besides meaning the way, can also be interpreted as the dark
energy. De is virtue and harmony is the ultimate human virtue. The gems
contained in Dao De Jing warrant a concerted effort to reinterpret Dao De Jing
from the perspective of modern science. World harmony renaissance can
free the collective mind of all people in the world to pursuit even broader scientific
development.

CROSS STRAIT HARMONY: SOLUTIONS FOR CHINA AND TAIWAN

Economic, cultural, travel and many other co-operations and


interchanges between China and Taiwan is an undeniably increasing tide. This
tide is easily observable and does not require proof. The reality of cross strait
relation is eventual unity under the umbrella of greater China. The concept of
unity in diversity for greater China or the world has been in existence for
sometime. All political systems of the world will eventually tend towards national
distinctive democracy. Whether it is one leading party with consensus
supportive parties, two party confrontational and multiparty political systems,
democracy can only be meaningful when harmony consensus can be
achieved. The best system for any country or society is a system with their own
harmony consensus. The future reality will be national specific democracy
systems by harmony consensus. The hope of a better world also lies in our
pursuit of world harmony consensus. About this I have spoken many times.

The concept of one country two systems is a brilliant harmony policy advanced
by Deng Xiaoping. It greatly facilitated the reunification of China and Hong
Kong. Many supported and still believe in one country two systems as a
possible solution for cross strait whether we have outgrown it or
not. With the Sixth Plenum of the 16th Central Committee, Oct 8 to 11,2006
harmony "Decision" announcement, China rediscovers its ancient cultural
heritage. The Party's decision to pursuit "Harmony Society" is necessary and
essential to solve the disproportionate growth pains of the
historically unprecedented rapid economic growth. The rigorous pursuit of
harmony society by China will surely bring more meaningful and real democracy
to Chinese people. It is not unimaginable that soon China through harmony
achieves more real democracy for Chinese people than Taiwan. After all China
will be the first major country to reach democracy through harmony renaissance
in the modern world. It will be true socialism with Chinese harmony as I wrote
about in my book. When that time comes political unification across the strait
becomes a simple reality.

To really bring brothers separated by the strait together as true brothers, China
only needs to pursuit rigorously a harmony interchange and harmony mutual
development policy. WHO advocates harmony solutions to China and to the
world. It is the only sustainable solution to world problems.

DOES WORLD HARMONY RENAISSANCE HAVE A CHANCE ON WORLD


STAGE( By Francis C. W. Fung, Ph. D.)

I agree there are many Western Universities and think tanks of high
caliber specialize in world affairs. Despite the abundance of research and
foreign affairs publication pouring out of the Western media there is still yet any
significant reference to world harmony renaissance as solution to world
conflicts. However, we hear Asian leaders including China's president Hu Jintao

Stephanopolis to support US foreign policy responded by saying the one crucial
point of that interview. What he said was; "I am interested in working for

A country can have democracy but not necessary harmony. But a country has
harmony has its own democratic consensus. Peace is only temporary if
harmony cannot prevail. Harmony practice is necessary and urgent to assure
stability and sustainable development. The best system for any country is its

35
own harmony system. On the present worldwide consumer rush the world will
face great resources shortage sooner than we think. World harmony also
embraces ecology and resource conservation.

Harmony renaissance will come because it is will develop from the order of
nature and the order of nature is harmony. Earth quakes, typhoons and
tsunamis are all natures’ imbalances that are caused by pressure and
temperature differences. The end results of these catastrophes are the calm of
nature. Human has superior intellect. Wars created by ideology struggles can
be far more destructive than nature’s calamities. We think we can control nature
but human activities obey the same order of nature.

Harmony and democracy will be equally accepted by the world. Just as


harmony promotes ecology, harmony will surely promote democracy
also. Harmony is the ultimate consensus of nature and mankind, it resolves all
dynamic imbalances. When dynamic balance is achieved harmony is
reached. As in fluid mechanics one must look for dynamic balance in harmony.
This is beautifully represented by the Daoist life sign.

As a fluid mechanics major I liken harmony to water. It sustains life. Where


there is water there is life. If not managed well it will soon be in shortage. It
seeks harmony and tranquility when it is in balance. It flows freely and fills all
reservoirs to full when available. When contained it builds up pressure until it is
relieved. When imbalance is allowed to built, it can cause the greatest upset if
not addressed. It can float and sink a boat. Given time it can bore through the
hardest rock. It is unyielding and triumphs over force. The essence of harmony
is tolerance, accepting, respect, equality and patience. It is the ultimate of
human virtue and the very nature of the dark energy that is the universe.

(E) WORLD HARMONY ORGANIZATION MILESTONES AT THE
BEGINNING OF 2007

Dear Friends of WHO, 1/9/2007

The understanding of World Harmony Renaissance Center(WHRC) at SFSU is


only the beginning. There will be many winning programs to make WHRC a
valuable entity at SFSU. I did not mention in my last email the reception from
SFSU faculty and administrator is overwhelming. Financially WHRC will no
doubt prove itself more than feasible.

My vision for WHRC is to multiply itself worldwide. The cooperation with SFSU
as the first think tank with activism will be made into a model. Harmony is an
ideal and renaissance is action. When ideal is fostered by action it translates
into financially viable memorable events. Democracy with action has profoundly
affected the world. Harmony is all embracing. It addresses religion, democracy
and ecology imbalances. These are the three most significant movements of the
world of major concern.

I have asked my attorney, Leon Jew, to prosecute worldwide rights for WHRC.
Because of the more than enthusiastic reception form SFSU, I expect the chain
of WHRC will grow. The claim for creditability for WHRC lies in my two
books. They are "China's harmony renaissance-What the world must know" and
"World Harmony Renaissance-Promise for a better World".

Those who have my first book may want to re -read my Forward. It is a short
essay that will be referred to as a break through. I look for your support in
making WHRC at SFSU a success. Francis.

Dear Friends of WHO, 1/8/2007

After three months of intensive discussions, SFSU and I arrived at a


major harmony consensus. World Harmony Organization has reached tentative
agreement to jointly set up a World Harmony Center at San Francisco State
University today. College of Education under Dean Perea will play the lead to
include other university depts. such as Humanity, Music, International programs
etc. Dean Perea will also be an honorary Director of WHO. WHO together
with SFSU will cooperate to conduct events such as World Harmony education,
conferences, book publishing, Calligraphy Exhibition and contest, choral music
and other world harmony cultural performances. Details of programs and
activities to be worked put as soon as expedient. Francis.

37
Dear Dean Perea, Jan 9, 2007

Thank you for accepting our offer to become a Honorary Director of the World
Harmony Organization. Your idea of a harmony center at San Francisco State
University is a splendid one. Harmony is an ideal and renaissance is a proven
mode of action. I propose that the first World Harmony Renaissance Center be
formed at SFSU as a pilot model and my suggested name be trade marked. I
agree with you full heartedly that the pursuit of harmony is best from
education. I envision soon there will be many joint harmony 101 courses
throughout many American and Chinese universities. The planned world
harmony cultural events can be cost effective to make WHRC
financially independent. It will catch on. I am already discussing the idea of
WHRC with President Ruth Simmons of Brown University, my Alma Mater. The
response was good.

I believe harmony renaissance is the break through the world is waiting for to
bring human to the next level of achievement. Harmony was developed from the
order of nature, it is all embracing. Democracy was rediscovered during the
period of Enlightenment and European Renaissance. The ideal of democracy in
the short 300 years or so since the Period of Enlightenment has profoundly
affected the world. Harmony includes ecology, democracy and all dynamic
balances of the universe. Democracy addresses part of the total dynamic
balance, which is relation between the government and its citizens. Harmony
Renaissance will allow human to reach a higher value consensus without religion
and politics. Today's different religions and politics are at times mutually
threatening and exclusive. Harmony advocates tolerance, acceptance, mutual
respect and equality. By pursuing mutual development, and harmony
development world harmony renaissance will bring the world out of unilateralism
and confrontational strives. The future impact of World Harmony Renaissance
on human achievement will no doubt exceed the European Renaissance.

I propose that SFSU and WHO immediately proceed to plan lectures and
seminars on harmony renaissance to prepare the way for WHRC cultural
events. My published book "China's Harmony Renaissance- What the World
must Know" and next one in preparation answering questions and comments to
my first book can be used as stepping stones for the call for more papers and
contributions. Befitting the mission of WHRC my second book will be titled
"World Harmony Renaissance - Promise for a Better World". I suggest that
SFSU and WHO start a joint effort to add Chinese translations to my books. The
combined versions can serve the dual purpose as text books for harmony and
Chinese language teaching also. Attached is the new Forward to my first book
which is in its third edition already.

38
On Jan 20th,2007 Saturday WHO will do a warm up meeting for the Chinese
community to introduce my two harmony papers submitted to the NABE Feb 7 to
10, 2007conference at San Jose on "One nation, many languages and cultures in
a changing world." There is no better way to change the world than through
world harmony renaissance. My papers are titled "China's harmony renaissance
and America Democracy in 21st century" and "Using Chinese harmony and
science history as text to improve Chinese teaching." Both papers are intended
to promote U.S.- China harmony consensus. Your participation will be welcome.

During the Jan 20th meeting I have asked my attorney, Leon Jew to read the
first names of Founders and Honorary Directors of WHO at this time. Among
others the names will include you and other notable community significant
contributors. Some of them I mentioned to you at our last meeting. I hope to do
an official Bay Area announcement of WHO and WHRC jointly with SFSU. At
that time the list will include more names jointly put together with SFSU.

Harmony to all!

Francis C. W. Fung
Director General
World Harmony Organization.

The following are our milestones at the beginning of 2007;

(I) We announced our theory "World Harmony Renaissance" is the breakthrough


human is waiting for to reach for the next level of accomplishment. When our
common value rises above the current international conflicts through world
harmony renaissance our accomplishments both scientific and cultural will soar.

(II) World religions and major human philosophies as we all know were
developed beginning 2500 years ago. European Renaissance and
Enlightenment period brought the second burst of human creative energy. I
proclaim "World Harmony Renaissance" will launch the third phase of human
innovation and creativeness to herald a more harmonious and better world.

(III) WHO and San Francisco State University have tentatively agreed to form the
first World Harmony Renaissance Center (WHRC) to pursue world harmony
through seminars, conferences, education and cultural activities.

(IV) WHO will have our humble first Bay Area organizational meeting at Nan Hai
Arts Center, Millbrae CA. on Jan 20th,2007. Friends of WHO are invited to
come. We will announce our current founders, honorary members and series of

39
harmony books including "China's harmony renaissance-What the world must
know" and "World harmony renaissance: Promise for a better world".

Dear Jennifer, (J. Katey, assistant to President Simmons, Brown University), Jan
9, 2007

It was my pleasure chatting with President Simmons and you regarding the
proposed formation of World Harmony Renaissance Center at San Francisco
State University. It will be a joint effort between World Harmony Organization
and the College of Education, Humanity, International Programs and Music Dept
of SFSU.

The Proposed Center will pursuit World Harmony Renaissance through research,
seminars, conferences, publications, teaching and various international cultural
activities, performances and exhibitions. Detail planning is underway. As I
suggested, we would like to open a dialogue with interested departments and
groups at Brown regarding possible cooperation and joint activities.

The book "China’s harmony renaissance-What the world must know", which
consists of a series of harmony articles was authored by me and published Nov.
2006 by World Harmony Organization. The collected papers appeared on
Xinhuanet and previewed for the coming NABE Feb. 2007 Conference. The
theme of the conference is "One nation many cultures and many languages in a
changing world." During that conference from Feb 7 to 10, 2007 I will present
two papers, titled "Chinese harmony and America democracy in 21st century"
and "Using harmony and Chinese ancient science history text to improve
Chinese language teaching." The second book under preparation consisted of
answers to responses to my first book will be titled "World Harmony
Renaissance- Promise for a better world?"

I look forward to your comments to my first book. Your assistance and


consideration to solicit the response of various departments at Brown to my
publication and the concept of World Harmony Renaissance Center will be
greatly appreciated. Look forward to your response of interest.

Dear Tina, Jan 15, 2007

As you said my life is interesting and colorful. I will be remembered most by my


"Harmony Declaration". I agreed to your proposal to write my story. Call me
and let us discuss the length.

Besides my theory and writings on harmony through which you have come to
know me, there are certain events in my life also illustrate my character. There
is no doubt my "Harmony Declaration" will be improved by those brilliant
minds who come after me. It will herald and inspire the "Age of Harmony"
because of my creativeness and innovation.

The most fitting story of me is that I am a creative entrepreneur crusader


and man of action. My fire and smoke safety research at NBS and subsequent
crusade during the 1970's made smoke detector in every American house a code
standard today. My interest in art and peace exhibitions during the 1980"s gave
me the opportunity to help make Ting Shao Kwong famous. Remind me to give
you a Ting Shao Kwong poster from my collection.

Events of my past be it innovative, pale in front of my "Harmony


Declaration". The initial form as I reprinted here no doubt will be fine tuned and
expanded by generations. In its final form its impact on civilization will be more
significant than the American Bill of Rights and Declaration of
Independence. Because my idea of harmony renaissance belongs to the world
and not one country. Already my "Harmony Declaration" in Chinese will become
the center piece of a planned Harmony Renaissance Calligraphy worldwide
exhibition. I expect other languages will follow.

(II) EVENT AFTER THE LAUNCHING OF WORLD
HARMONY ORGANIZATION
(A) CALL FOR WORLD PARTICIPATION OF WORLD HARMOMY
RENAISSANCE DECLARATION

Dear Friends,

World Harmony Organization is working on our third book of harmony series. It


will be titled "Scientific Theory of Harmony Renaissance." Human beings are
tending towards greater unity in diversity which is world harmony. About 2500
years ago, the Middle East developed religion to achieve harmony with nature
and China developed moral value teachings with emphasis on self discipline and
family unity to achieve harmony at about the same period. The Europeans
rediscovered ancient Greek Democracy through the Enlightenment and
Renaissance periods beginning the 1600. This brought about serious attempts
by human beings to build society and national harmony. Some 230 years ago
America pioneered the new age of democracy through its Declaration of
Independence and Bill of Rights. A comprehensive system of laws resulted to
safe guard society and national harmony. Subsequent democracy movements
have a profound impact on the world and still on going. Please refer to our first
book "China's harmony renaissance: What the world must know" for details on
these different stages of development.

To cope with the inequity brought about by rapid economic development since
reform and opening up, Chinese government announced the Concept of
Scientific Development during 2002. This is the inevitable policy to assure
sustainable development. This was followed by the logical announcement of
Decisions of Harmony Society by China in Oct 8-10, 2006.

HARMONY IS NATURAL SCIENCE


Harmony is human science developed from natural science. The order of nature
is dynamic balance in pursuit of harmony as illustrated by the Daoist sign of
life. Einstein said that God does not play dice with
nature. Another way of putting it is "Nature seeks harmony and harmony is the
order of nature." The seasons we observed, the occurrences of floods, typhoons
and tsunamis are all testimonials of natural acts seeking harmony. They are
large events in the victims' life, but small dynamic balances to achieve
harmony compared to the size of the earth. These natural phenomena are
caused by pressure and temperature imbalances. Human beings are endowed
with intellects that are above natural phenomena. Our ideology differences can
create wars that are more destructive than any earthly natural forces. We
believe we can control nature. In reality human beings are part of the natural
order. All ideology struggles are imbalances that must eventually return to
harmony, the order of nature. Peace can only be temporary without

44
harmony. Harmony is the ultimate human virtue of tolerance, respect,
acceptance, and patience with other cultures, religions, political systems and
ideologies.

The universe was created by dark energy (the Ying), by virtue of the dynamic
creation process the universe will continue to expand at an enormous scale. In
Dao De Jing, Dao besides meaning the way, can also be interpreted as the dark
energy. De is virtue and harmony is the ultimate human virtue. The gems
contained in Dao De Jing warrant a concerted effort to reinterpret Dao De Jing
from the perspective of modern science. World harmony renaissance can
free the collective mind of all people in the world to pursuit even broader scientific
development.

HARMONY PREAMBLE

In the East harmony as a social science theory was evolved from natural science
observation by Laotze. Einstein was also quoted as saying the order of nature is
not accidental. Harmony is the order of nature. Harmony belongs to the
universe.

CALL FOR WORLD HARMONY ORGANIZATION "HARMONY RENAISSANCE


DECLARATION", JAN 20, 2007

Statement calling for World Harmony Renaissance Declaration


submission. Harmony is an ideal and renaissance is an action together
they comprise an advocacy. For now the brief guide lines for contribution are:

(I) Statements must be short and concise.

(II) It must be scientifically grounded and defendable by current modern science

(III) It must show historical prospective as well as forward thinking

(IV) It should show a vision to pursuit world harmony through innovative and
creative thinking.

45
Following is a draft example from opinions already collected to start the process.

WORLD HARMONY RENAISSANCE PREAMBLE

In the East harmony as a social science theory was evolved from natural science
observation by Laotze. Einstein was also quoted as saying the order of nature is
not accidental. Harmony is the order of nature. Harmony belongs to the
universe.

"WORLD HARMONY RENAISSANCE DECLARATION"

Harmony is the order of natural science and the fundamental law of the universe.

Harmony is dynamic energy balance and is also the principle of universe


creation.

The invisible energy that created the universe can also be called DAO.

Laotze said "Dao created one, one created two, two created three, three created
all things. All things carry Ying and embrace Yang. Dynamic balance creates
harmony."

Harmony renaissance is the guiding principle to be applied to natural and social


sciences. It is the break through that will take us to the next level of human
creativity and accomplishment beyond European Renaissance.

Look forward to your contributions both East and West, North and South. Above
are only examples of harmony theory from one culture to start your thinking. We
welcome worldwide contributions. We are looking for a multicultural declaration
based on current modern science. WHO reserves the right to refuse acceptance
of contributions that are deemed by open vote as not appropriate by the standard
of modern science.

Francis C. W. Fung,Ph.D.
Director General

Dear Francis,

I thank you for the invitation to this meeting and offer my apologies that
circumstances prevented me from joining you. I had looked forward to coming.

46
I hope you had an encouraging beginning and good support and look forward to
further news of a response from the civilized world. Lord only knows we need
harmony more than ever.
With Kind Regards, Eric.

(B) XINHUA ANNOUNCEMENT WORLD HARMONY
ORGANIZATION LAUNCHED
LOS ANGELES, Jan. 20, 2007 (Xinhua) -- The World Harmony
Organization(WHO) was launched in San Francisco on Saturday, with a
call on all countries to promote world peace based on harmony.

WHO, a non-profit and non-governmental organization and the first of its


kind in the world, is dedicated to the pursuit of World Harmony
Renaissance study and research, the organization said in a press release.

"Harmony belongs to the world. The best social system for any country is
its own harmony system for sustainable development," said the release.

It said the organization was formed on the basis of the harmony theory
proclaimed by the Chinese leaders in 2006.

"A major social harmony renaissance movement is taking place in China


today after the 2002 announcement of the scientific concept," said the
release.

"We declare our theory 'World Harmony Renaissance' is the


breakthrough mankind is waiting for the next level of accomplishment.
When our common values rise above the current international conflicts
through world harmony renaissance our accomplishments both scientific
and cultural will soar."

"World religions and major human philosophies as we all know were


developed about 2500 years ago," said Dr. Francis C. W. Fung, an
American researcher who founded the organization.

"European Renaissance and Enlightenment period brought the second


burst of human creative energy," Fung said. "We believe 'World Harmony
Renaissance' will launch the third phase of human innovation and
creativeness to herald a more harmonious and better world."

At its launch meeting, the organization will hold major global cultural
events in San Francisco to advocate world harmony renaissance. It also
plans future events which include World Harmony Renaissance
Symposium, World Harmony Renaissance Calligraphy Contest, World
Harmony Renaissance cultural performances, according to Fung, author of
the China Harmony Renaissance - What the World Must Know.

He said for those who do not understand China's peaceful development,


it is time to learn China's harmony renaissance. Special attention is given to

48
Sino-American relations over the past 50 years.

"We believe 'World Harmony Renaissance' is hope for a more


understanding world," he said.
Editor: Luan Shanglin

Dear Friends,

Thank you all for coming to our first seminar to discuss world harmony
renaissance, especially to those who came to help and to Dr. Peter Tien and Mr.
Qin Nanji who acted as presenters on short notice. It was a lively meeting with
strong audience participation because of the timely harmony topic and Dr. Tien,
Mr. Qin's preparation ahead of time. The meeting was at its height when it had
to end because time ran out. The general feeling is to meet again soon to
discuss organization and planning of harmony activities.

My first task is to request the presenters and those who expressed their opinions
to email me their thoughts and what more they want to say because of
yesterday's time limitation. Do not hesitate to send me detail thoughts. I
promise you your thoughts will be well received. Feed backs are very important
because we will continue the learning process. Harmony renaissance begins
with harmony discussions and consultations I learned a lot from the feed backs
to my book "China's Harmony Renaissance:What the World Must Know". From
the comments and my answers I am now in the process of publishing my second
book titled "World Harmony Renaissance:Promise for a Better World".

The comment from Prof. Z that history showed Chinese do not have harmony in
their genes was very interesting. Mr. Qin answered that Chinese family harmony
without political ideology had preserved Chinese culture for 5000 years. Dr.
Tien also commented that Chinese harmony is our forefather's moral value
teaching being handed down from ages. Mr. Qin further expanded that Chinese
harmony gene is in family unity which is the basic cell of human harmony.

Sheila and Dr. Tien compared the Jewish and Chinese people's influence in the
U.S. main stream. Lack of harmony and unity among Chinese Americans is the
cause of lack of influence in U. S. society. Is that all? Are there other
reasons? This can also be a vast research topic. Please send in your
comments.

I did not respond to Prof. Z’s claim that Chinese people do not have harmony in
their genes by his historical account. I did not wish to make any comments at the
time in consideration of other esteemed opinions from the audience. Dr. Tien

49
remarked that Chinese ancient moral value teaching stresses harmony which is
the essence of Chinese culture. Mr. Qin remarked that Chinese people's self
discipline and our family unity are ample proofs of Chinese style harmony. This
is a great topic for research I will follow through with your responses.

All cultures have harmony and their own brand of harmony philosophy. Middle
East called it religion, Europe call it Democracy. China just used the word
harmony for its contribution to the world civilization. Let us call all cultural
harmony as harmony and do what we can to help world harmony renaissance,
not just proclaim our own brand. I will reserve my exposition on this topic and
not to debate which culture has the best harmony. Because all cultural harmony
are important.

From a scientific view point ecology is one of the most pressing issues of human
kind today. Conservation of resources tops the list. Ask any American Chinese
here who is better at conservation of resources, American or Chinese? For five
thousand years until the 1700, Chinese civilization reined supreme in science but
did not significantly threaten the environment. For the short 300 years modern
consumerism, we are told by experts (including Al Gore, preferred US president
by more than half the US population) world ecology will be destroyed if nature's
harmony is not returned.

Politics often lead to strives because many politicians practice unilateralism. It is


either my party or your party. At times it can be cut throat. Central to harmony
is unity in diversity, it teaches tolerance, acceptance, equality and respect. In
music more than other cultures. Europe practiced harmony. The Symphonies
and operas of Beethoven, Brahms, Mozart, Puccini, Verdi and Wagner were
great because of their harmony. This contribution to harmony is unique and
profound. President Hu Jintao refered to it also but in a different way. Harmony
must rise above political strives.

About politics, as an aside, here is a very interesting personal story about how
politics can change in a jiff at a whim. During the late 1950's for those who still
remember the Cold War, there were political propaganda galore from both sides
of the camps. To protect the Americans from the evils of Communism,
Americans were not allowed to travel to China and McCarthyism was in control of
the US politics. Its damage to US free thinking still remains today. Because I
came to US for education from Hong Kong via Shanghai I was ridiculed as
Commie by some Americans. Well, at Brown as an active member of the
International club I invited a well known Catholic priest to give a speech at
Brown. Sorry the name escaped me just now, it was more than fifty years
ago. The Brown University record can be checked about that. It was quite an
event judged by the various Department Heads that showed up. He was
condemned by all major US media for defying the ban to travel to China. Of all
horrible things he also brought with him a group of American college students to
China.

50
This mild mannered catholic priest out of his pure curiosity about China created a
major credibility problem for the US government. Because he plainly said on
return that China during the 1950's was not as bad as the US media made it out
to be. In fact he said China at the time was mainly focused on reconstruction
equivalent to what we call reform and modernization today. I sat in the first row
to introduce the speaker and a number of Depart Heads of Brown were right
behind me. As the speaker narrated his innocent travel in China I heard behind
me louder and louder pipe puffing sound. When I turned back I discovered Prof
Williams, Prof. from the Political Department. His face a crimson red and puffing
with all his might on his pipe. After the meeting I quarried Prof Williams why his
pipe puffing was getting louder and louder as the speaker’s interesting story
unwinding. He announced with indignity "Propaganda! Pure propaganda! He is
helping the other side." Few years ago, I read a Brown University Brochure
advertising a grand Education Tour to China. The tour expert lecturer was the
angry Prof. Williams, no less." What irony, how political wind can turn on a
dime.

Look forward to hear from you. I will collect the comments and table them for
future seminars. Harmony is the great unifying force. The universe is in
constant dynamic flux, without harmony the universe will self destruct. "Be
proud you are citizens of the world and not citizens of one country."

(C) PLAN FOR WORLD HARMONY RENAISSANCE CENTER AT SAN
FRANCISCO STATE UNIVERSITY

Dear Dean Perea, Jan 23, 2007

Thank you for organizing yesterday's SFSU meeting to formulate an action plan
for world harmony. I believe it was a historical meeting just as the World
Harmony Organization meeting on Jan 20, 2007. The statement by Xinhua
describing WHO formation as first harmony organization of its kind was Xinhua's
claim and true.

During yesterday's meeting you and I both insisted that harmony belongs to the
world. That is why WHO's charter is non profit, non religious and non
governmental in order to be totally independent. The mission of world harmony
is too important to be colored by any nation and any group. For the same
reason, the future plan for World Harmony Renaissance Center at
SFSU conceived by both of us must not be directly connected to the Political
Department and the Confucius Institute. By maintaining our independence we
will cause U.S., China and all other nations and organizations to support and
compete to fund us. We can initiate World Harmony Watch Report to insure
world participation. This way it is better for us and for all governments in the
long run. This is preferred by me and the Chinese Consulate here. What do
you think? By the way, I have the strong support of a number African
governments through the circulation of my first book. I will explain when we
have an opportunity.

I thank you for your consensus leadership within SFSU and look forward to your
plan to include all interested participations within SFSU, admitting the importance
of our grand vision for WHO and future World Harmony Renaissance Center at
SFSU. Excuse me for writing my feeling only because you and I share the same
goal for the coming momentous world harmony renaissance movement. It is a
grand goal shared by many. As you rightly put it many times during yesterday's
meeting, "That is Harmony!"

I look forward to a long meaningful association with you and SFSU in pursuing
world harmony renaissance. As I repeatedly said world harmony is an ideal and
renaissance is the action. I truly believe world harmony renaissance based on
higher common human values will take human creativeness and innovations to a
higher level beyond European Renaissance. I am waiting for your draft plan and
our follow up meeting next Tuesday with excitement of immediate action items
as we discussed.
I remain yours very truly,

Francis C, W. Fung, Ph.D.

52
Director General
World Harmony Organization

Jan 26 2007
Dear Dr. Peter Tien,

Thank you for agreeing to be the Executive Director of World Harmony


Organization. You and I together is the nucleus of the core five member Board
of Directors to lead WHO. During our productive meeting yesterday the
synergistic, convergence and resonance of ideas were great. With you in
charge of implementing world harmony renaissance WHO will rise to a higher
level of successes. You are the logical person to do great humanity and
educational work to continue the tradition of Chancellor Tien of UC Berkeley.

We will meet periodically and also by phone and email to launch action plans to
forster world harmony renaissance. Your suggestion of immediately securing an
office for business and meeting is timely and important. I have confidence in
you finding the right place. Mr. Qin Nanji can be the office manager for now until
we can hire somebody to do dedicated work for the Commission of
Education. He is absolutely devoted to the mission of world harmony
renaissance. He can do good work under our joint vision. He will also
contribute all his creation into WHO to add momentum to the substantial
intellectual property and good will we already built up.

I look forward to working with you to pioneer world harmony renaissance which
will lead human to the next level of creativeness and innovation beyond
European Renaissance. We are at a historical moment.

I remain very truly yours,

Francis C. W. Fung, Ph.D.


Director General,
World Harmony Organization

Dear Mr. Andrews, Jan 26, 2007

53
Can you help me placing my book announcement with a receptive Brown media
or publication? I am confident it will be well received. My experience with San
Francisco State University started with my book. My relation with Xinhua, Noam
Chomsky and James Fallows also began with my book.

Your assistance will be greatly appreciated. Did you have a chance to read my
book? Feel free to ask me any questions. I welcome your comment also. Many
years ago I organized an important meeting for the Brown International
club. Prof. Williams of the Political Science Dept. must remember that meeting
and me. I have noted that Prof. Williams now conducts lecture tour to
China. Sino U. S. relation sure have improved since that lecture. I expect U.S.
and China will reach harmony consensus soon. I like to renew my friendship with
Prof. Williams. Can you share this email with him?

Like that lecture my book will stimulate thinking. Harmony renaissance will raise
our common value to a higher level. It is what human is waiting for to release
our creativeness and innovations to a plane beyond European Renaissance.

Dear Mr. Andrews, Brown University, Jan 27, 2007

To reconnect with Prof. Williams, I should add the important lecture I organized for
Brown International club must be around 1957 to 1958. I invited the Catholic father
who defied Statement Department orders and brought a group of American youth to visit
Peoples Republic China. Sorry I forgot the Rev. father's name. It has been many years
but that lecture must be in Brown record. But the event is historical because it is the first
official visit of China since 1949 by a group of Americans. As an undergraduate that
lecture was as ground breaking as my announcement of world harmony renaissance
today. As I said world harmony renaissance will release human beings creativity and
innovation to the next level beyond European Renaissance.

About 2500 years ago human beings experienced a great surge of creativity with religion
and philosophy flourished. At that time there were no
National boundaries. The second great surge of creativity was the European
Renaissance. I predict the time has come for the third surge of creativity which will be
led by world harmony renaissance without national boundaries.

I appreciate whatever help you can render to bring my world harmony renaissance
advocacy to the attention of the Brown community and also to renew my connection with
Prof. Williams. We will compare notes how far can U.S. and China harmony consensus
can reach.

CALL FOR WORLD HARMONY RENAISSANCE AND RETURN TO BETTER AND
SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT. FEB 3, 2007

Dear Friends,

Not everybody subscribes to world wave development theories but many


do. Among the famous wave theory is one that postulates that scientific and
technology began from Europe now is spreading to the East in a bigger wave
cycle. My wife, the history teacher, remarked to me one day that there is
a movement towards fundamentalism that brought about today’s sorry state of
world affairs. Both Middle East extremism and the U.S. Christian revival are
examples. These are not casual remarks; there is definite wisdom about
it. After all Bush proclaimed himself born again Christian and got him the
Christian support to be elected U.S. President during the 2000 campaign. With
considerable bravado our modern day President announced that God wanted
him to be President or God wanted him to run for President. The difference of
interpretation is not important at this point. However, Bush proclaimed that our
"War on Terror" is the ideological struggle of the 21st century.

At the same time there is a definite positive movement yearning for a better life in
China and parts of the world. because of the disharmony created by recent break
neck uneven economic development. This positive movement runs counter to the
negative fundamentalism in dynamic counter movements that may lead to a
more harmonious world. This peaceful harmony movement is evidenced by the
Chinese government's announced policy during the Oct.2006 CPC Sixth Plenum
meeting. I believe the world as a whole needs "Harmony Renaissance"
meaning return to better quality of life without the excess materialism and threat
of global ecological disaster. Harmony is the essence of ancient Chinese
teaching and the order of nature. Harmony Renaissance in the current sense is
to return to better quality of life and sustainable development on modern scientific
basis.

During 2002 to cope with the rapid uneven economic and technological
development the Chinese government under Hu Jintao advanced the national
policy of Concept of Scientific Development. I predicted at the time that
Concept of Scientific Development is Harmony Renaissance movement on a
scientific basis. After all, at the very beginning, harmony was a social science
developed by Laotze from observation of natural science. Harmony philosophy
gave China 5000 years of continuity unparalleled in world history despite of
numerous foreign invasions and upheavals caused by peasants rise against
injustice and economic dissatisfaction. Unlike the rest of the world there were
no major religious or ideological wars took place in ancient China. The recent
revolutions and civil wars fought in China were on imported ideologies such as
democracy, socialism and communism. Has anybody asked seriously the
question "Why China through out its long history of the past did not fought over
religions and politics?" Dynasties came and go without the change of political
system. Today Chinese people accepted all religions and did not quarrel over

religions. "Why?" The simple answer is that Chinese people is deep rooted in
their own harmony philosophy. Without harmony, China being the leading
consumer country of the world until Ming dynasty would have destroyed the
world totally ecologically during its long 5000 years of history. The world may
not have a chance to see today’s consumerism racking havoc to our ecological
system.

To bring the world back to sustainable development does not need to mean
regression. With today’s advanced science and technology concerted efforts
without huge war layouts can reasonably managed the energy and resources
crisis. This will herald the third phase of surge of human creative and innovative
energy after the European Renaissance, discussed in my previous essays
contained in this book. Modern day "World Harmony Renaissance" will naturally
be scientifically based, because of our common human scientific heritage of
today. For more look for my coming book "World Harmony Renaissance:
Promise for a Better World".

(D) SCIENTIFIC HARMONY FENGSHUI CAMPAIGN

I proposed in my first harmony book that Harmony is the order of nature and was
evolved from observation of nature beginning with Laotze. Chinese
medicine was also based on Ying Yang dynamic balance within and without the
complex human biological system. Chinese landscaping at its highest form is
exemplified by the harmony of nature and artificial. The most acclaimed
Chinese landscaping are Suzhou gardens and Westlake in Hangzhou.

CAN SCIENCE BASED FENGSHUI INCREASE CREDIBILITY? FEB 4,2007

I mentioned in my book "China's Harmony Renaissance: What the world must


know.", Chinese Fengshui practice is a philosophy of life that places emphasis on
human harmony with nature and his surroundings. Just like human beings
corrupt the pure form of major religions, Fengshui believers also accepted
superstitions. The practitioners of the art of Fengshui would like to keep it that
way. Harmony renaissance calls for return to the scientific base of harmony
living. The credibility of Fengshui, as a Chinese belief, need to be restored to
allow wider acceptance by the main stream. The applicability of Fengshui theory
and practice in our life is unlimited.

How can we restore people's interest in harmony living? That was the original
concept of Fengshui. Just like all professional practices education and licensing
can go a long way to improve quality of service. In Chinese medicine it is
precisely the maintenance of high standards and licensing in acupuncture
practices that gained its acceptance by the U.S. medical profession. The public
is protected and the market widens for all practitioners at the end. Does any
body remember the early history of U.S. medicine when snake oil was a cure all
for medical ailments until private and government concern moved medical
practice to a more scientific level. Believe it or not, only 150 years ago in the U.
S. barbers were doctors and doctors were barbers.. The AMA as an association
raised the standards and put a stop to that.

I am currently discussing with many in the education field to look at introducing


harmony interior and architecture design seminars and courses by bringing
expert practitioners from China. A well worked out program by combining US
design practices with Chinese harmony can truly enrich our life and also make
sales. It may also teach harmony living and philosophy at the same time. Can
health practices be learned along the way also?

A beginning may also be made to study the possibility of licensing examines to


protect the consumers from the inscrutable. It does not necessary need
government regulations. We can form an association of Fengshui practitioners
and harmony believers to initiate the study of need for licensing. After all, the
well known SAT Exams for College Entrance is managed by a private group and

57
the Security advisers series 6, 7 and other licensing exams and the AMA
Exams. are also managed by its own professional association.

I am throwing this out for all interested to comment and participate. There are a
lot of business opportunities for all in modernizing Fengshui practices as a
harmony way of life. Harmony Fengshui to health is a way of life for the
future. We are at the beginning of Harmony Renaissance. According to an
ancient Chinese saying Fengshui rotates every 60 years, which means family
state of affairs change every 60 years. It is time to put Fengshui on a modern
scientific base to reintroduce it to the world just like we did with acupuncture. All
it need is packaging.

WHO SCIENTIFIC FENGSHUI CAMPAIGN ANNOUNCEMENT. Feb 5, 2007


World Harmony Organization is registered as a non profit, non political and non
religious organization dedicated to the pursuit of World Harmony and Harmony
Renaissance. It is an advocacy INTERNATIONAL think tank welcoming
universal and international participation working for world harmony
consensus. It's principles are based on scientific sustainable development. Its
theories are firmly rooted on harmony renaissance, the order of nature and the
universe.

Our rich assets are built on continuing innovative publication of intellectual


properties and the protection of proprietary service marks in major fields of World
Harmony and Harmony Renaissance. In an increasingly interactive
modern world, these proprietary assets are absolutely essential for any
organization to grow. Please open our website www.worldharmonyorg.net and
click on banner SERVICE to see more details.

We seek support from high aimed organizations and institutions to work together
on world harmony consensus beyond national boundaries. Currently we
received support from Xinhua Net, Foreign Affairs Journal, San Francisco State
University on our projects. Our World Harmony Renaissance theories and
coming World Harmony Journal are fully recognized by Brown University and
Johns Hopkins University Alumni Associations. President Ruth Simmons
personally congratulated me on my book.. Our harmony publications are
endorsed by African nations. For examples of endorsement letters please click
banner Service on our website www.worldharmonyorg.net

Under our proprietary service marks we will launch world harmony


renaissance periodicals, book publications, conferences, educational services,
entertainment, sports, cultural and exchange activities. The inauguration of our
World Harmony Renaissance Journal is under preparation and its scope is being
circulated for comments.

58
Chinese harmony culture include the practice of Fengshui as a way for man to
harmonize with nature and his surroundings. To promote Sino-American
harmony consensus WHO is planning to launch a major scientific harmony
campaign to introduce Chinese Fengshui theories and practices to the U.S. main
stream. The aim is to seek Harmony consensus in Harmony Fengshui between
American and Chinese practitioners in the field of real estate, building
construction, architecture, interior design, interior decorations and
landscaping. The blend of natural and artificial Fengshui practice is exemplified
by the beauty of Suzhou gardens and Westlake. In China we have the saying
"There is heaven above but there is Suzhou and Hangzhou on Earth". This
campaign was originally conceived in my book "China's harmony renaissance:
What the world must know".

To protect the American consumer and to raise the credibility of Harmony


Fengshui theories and practices we must put them on scientific bases and stress
education and self regulation. We must follow successful American self
regulation industry examples such as AMA, NASDAQ and SAT. For details
please see my article. "Can science based Harmony Fengshui increase
credibility?" As a principle our Harmony Fengshui campaign will seek the
support of the greater American public, including practitioners, consumers,
related institutions and industries by forming the needed associations.

Our campaign will also be driven by our service trade marks and continually
supported and monitored by our periodical World Harmony Renaissance Journal
and book publications. I will guarantee you our campaign will persist on
scientific and innovative track. My track record in public protection is testified by
my ten years of services of public fire and smoke safety research and codes and
standards development at the U.S. National Bureau of Standards. For details of
my publications in public fire and smoke safety please enter WHO website

(III) PROACTIVE PURSUIT OF WORLD HARMONY
RENAISSANCE
THE TIDE OF HARMONY RENAISSANCE IS HERE. FEB 6, 2007

Dear Friends,

World Harmony Renaissance is here. We have traction, we have


momentum. We can choose and pick. There are no lack of candidates that wish
to work with WHO. We also have the intellectual property and proprietary service
marks as our pillars. That will attract international talents to extend World
Harmony Consensus. We International Chinese why lower our vision and limit
ourselves to local Chinese circles. Only World Harmony Renaissance can unite
the Chinese and not any other lower hierarchy visions. Many have tried to unite
the Overseas Chinese with less and we all know it did not work. Chinese can
embrace different religions and never had religious wars. That is why we can
embrace World Harmony Renaissance as our vision.

With our noble goals the inspiration will always be with us. As an International
group we can work with all nationalities. This way under the umbrella of World
Harmony Renaissance we can easily reach out and extend harmony consensus
to the world. San Francisco is a great place to launch World
Harmony Organization. The United Nations was launched here. Be proud you
are citizens of the world and not citizens of one country!

Let Harmony Prevail in the World !

multidisciplinary studies is unlimited. These activities can be implemented at all
levels first through educational institutions, grade schools, then inter-net, NGO's
and government agencies. Harmony as an all embracing concept, that includes
all human activities, ecology and some.

Harmony can become required educational multidisciplinary courses at all


levels. This may not be as far fetched as religion, democracy, philosophy,
politics and so on are being taught at all educational institutes in one form or the
other. Harmony teaching is above the pursuit of other studies because it can
increase our common values and bring consensus for world harmony. In today's
conflicting world, terrorism and unilateralism, teaching of harmony through
international activities is paramount and time is of the essence.

WORLD HARMONY RENAISSANCE IS OUR COMMON HERITAGE AND A


CERTAIN MR. LIU, article for WORLD HARMONY RENAISSANCE JOURNAL

Dear Friends, Feb 7, 2007

Human civilization move together abide not by lock step. We must distinguish
the positive from the negative experiences. When we are discriminating we can
learn from our experiences and adopt the positive results. That is why we learn
history. We do not all relive the same experience and we do not all need to
reinvent the wheel.

From ancient Chinese culture we learned that harmony theories evolving from
order of nature worked for a long period of Chinese history. Harmony addresses
multifaceted dynamic imbalances including ecology and all human
relations. Harmony also includes democracy but China for centuries choose to
manage democracy by moral teaching. Law was only the bottom line but moral
value was above it. European Renaissance was a great experience although
there is still criticism of certain excesses of the period. From it the world learned
the importance of democracy and the energy released led to today's modern
science and technology. America since its independence choose to manage
democracy by emphasizing law and order.

64
Both Chinese harmony and American Democracy as developed are our common
human heritage and belong to the world now. We also learned form China's
cultural revolution that greater democracy without law and order did not
work. With today's extremism expressed through fundamentalism and the
resulting confrontations we must brought back harmony theories. Terrorist
movements are extremism so is Bush's Iraq policy and certain extreme Christian
fundamentalism. The world does not need a modern equivalent of the ten year
Crusade war. That is why World Harmony Organization is calling for Harmony
Renaissance to resolve today's world conflicts and imbalances through
discussions, consultations and reaching harmony consensus. Today's harmony
renaissance has the advantage of modern science and communication
advances. Concerted World effort can be easily directed to combine the East
and West experience in harmony and democracy and bring about new release of
energy. This new creative energy based on a higher harmony common values
will advance the world beyond what European Renaissance has accomplished.

My attorney friend, Leon Jew, yesterday brought to my attention that a certain


Mr. Liu is advocating Cultural Renaissance for China in "Southern Weekend"
journal and creating a stir. His main premise was that China needed to relive
the European Renaissance. His theories were misguided, muddled
and was one more form of extreme fundamentalism that neither China nor the
world needs. The world does not need to relive any cultural revolutions or
extreme movements. We are well on the path of mutual development and
harmony development. With the positive experience of Western democracy and
China's ancient harmony the world has more than enough sound scientific
principles to build a better world and a more harmonious world. Mr. Liu's
theories were not worth the paper he used to wrote on. He will soon be
discarded by history and forgotten. That is why I refer him in the past
tense. The world has learned from past extreme cultural and religious
movements that stability is necessary for mutual development and harmony
development. Mr. Liu was just another trouble maker. We should accept him
for what he was. What was his name?

May Harmony prevail in the world!!

Dear Francis,

65
Thanks for your messages, these are all very interesting
developments.
I regret that am already overcommitted on multiple fronts
and won't be
in a position to be actively involved with WHO and related
matters. I
have to build harmony first in myself by keeping promises,
then in my
family by maintaining emotional balance. This is no small
task! Thank
you for reminding me of the importance of building a
fundamental harmony
foundation in life.

I wish you the best of success in your efforts, and in


harmony with the
great Harmony which drives the universe.

Best regards to you and the family.

SIGN OF HARMONY FROM NORTH EAST ASIA AND WORLD HARMONY


WATCH. Article submitted to World Harmony Renaissance Journal

Dear Friends, Feb 14,2007


I have discussed the preparation for our own World
Harmony Renaissance Magazine with some of you. It is necessary for an
important advocacy to have its own voice. I hope I will get more support from
you. We all know of the story of the Foolish old man who wanted to move the
mountain that was blocking the progress of the village.. A friend reminded me
that I am that old man. Well, I have no regrets, because harmony will work its
way through generations.

I also thought of having World Harmony Watch column among many columns in
our magazine. The idea is to report on major countries activities
to promote world harmony. Details of the Six nations denuclearizing
pact coming out last two days are very encouraging. It clearly shows that the
two strong contending sides are giving ground and reached some consensus
through long painful discussions and consultations. This is how harmony works
through discussions, consultations and consensus. Until the announcement

66
yesterday the accord all seemed but impossible. Not so long ago our President
Bush called North Korea part of the "Axis of Evil".

This major world event may not receive the attention it deserves. But from
World Harmony Renaissance perspective this may spark a series of events that
signal the beginning of harmony at East Asia. By implementing the Nuclear
Disarmament Pact U.S., China, Russia, Japan, South and North will have to help
North Korea recover. That means major countries across both sides of the
pacific will work together for mutual development. North East
Asia development have a lot of potential.

North Korea's economic stagnation dated from Korean War some 50 years ago
may see a way out. The Accord calls for "Within 30 days: Five separate working
groups meet on denuclearizing, normalizing U.S.-North Korea relations,
normalizing of North Korea-Japan relations, economy and energy cooperation,
and peace and security in Northeast Asia."

This would have been real juicy material for our World Harmony Watch Column
to break the news, should we have our own World Harmony Renaissance mega
zine. I would have reported with a lot more enthusiasm than the U.S. press for
sure. Be what it may, this proved the importance of World Harmony Watch
column to give the fair historical perspective and the whole aftermath of the cold
war era. Some of you may still remember the cold war confrontation era. As
momentous as those years were the left over effect may be solved by the
necessity of mutual and harmonious development.

Need for mutual development will pave the way for a more harmonious
world. Solution for uniting North and South Korea, Between China and Taiwan
will be the promise of mutual development. Unification of West and East
Germany and the return of Hong Kong to China both situations showed that the
aftermath of cold war era can easily be forgotten and harmony of feuding
brothers can be achieved.

Dear Ambassador Peng, Feb 19, 2007


For your review and comment. Until final announcement, not for distribution.

As a non government and non religious organization we propose to initiate the


call for World Harmony Ambassadors and World Harmony Volunteers to be
supported by participating nations of the world. This announcement will be put
on our website and distributed through major world media.

Following this announcement we will call for a steering committee to form a


Commission on World Harmony Ambassadors and Volunteer Corps to
proactively pursuit the program of working for world harmony renaissance. This
Commission will administer all activities under the auspicious of World Harmony
Organization and World Harmony Institute. But the Ambassadors and
Volunteers are honorary appointments and not integral part of WHO and World
Harmony Institute. All legal registration of intellectual rights and protection of
cultural education activities are in full place.

Dear Friends,

It was nice to renew and make new friends in a harmonious Chinese New Years
Party. Through out the course of last year I received many well wishes and also
comments and accusations about my essays and theories on World Harmony
Renaissance. It was nothing wrong receiving accusations, that is how
understanding can be established through consultation and consensus. It is the
harmony process.

I have received personal endorsements from Dean Jacob Perea of San


Francisco State University (WHO partner) and President Ruth Simmons of Brown
University (My Alma Mater). Examples of written endorsement form world
leaders and Xinhua Net can be seen by clicking banner Service after opening our
website www.worldharmonyorg.net .

Additionally, I received accusations that my essays are too long, too lofty, in
English all the time and on occasions metaphysical. Although frankly, my short

69
coming is writting harmony essays too much like a research scientist which is my
background. The following is an email dialogue, short and sweet, that is very
revealing. Name of the very important Chinese Bay Area business man, a dear
friend, whom I have received many comments, have been withheld for privacy.

Feb. 13, 2007


Francis:
The most important contribution of your Harmony work is that you responded to
Hu's initiative. Please be humble to exercise this movement. I can support you,
but I don't want to be a member in an ethnic-central organization. Besides, I
don't have much time to read the long articles, some of them even got too deep
into metaphysics.

XXXX

Feb. 13, 2007


Dear XXXX,

Your comments are always welcome. World Harmony belongs to the world and
not any particular ethnic group. It cannot be ethnocentric. World harmony
Renaissance requires the common consensus of people all over the
world. Without world harmony we cannot have world democracy. This is the
call for common advocacy. Be proud you are citizens of the world and not citizen
of one country.

It is a lofty ideal that brings us all down to earth. Harmony is the order of nature
because the universe seeks harmony. It is an observation of natural
phenomenon and not a metaphysical statement.
Francis.

Feb. 14, 2007


Dear Francis,
Ok. I agree.
XXXX.

70
Francis, Feb. 14,2007
Thank you for sharing your vision of the development of World harmony. One
can only hope that it will be embraced widely.

The experience of recent years, underpinned by a seasoned view of human


behaviour, impresses me with the magnitude of the task. In reality, the only force
capable of bringing harmony is public opinion, which may engender change in
the political management of countries' affairs. For this reason, the more exposure
WHO gets, the more likely it will eventually influence international relations.

Kind regards,
Eric

Hi Eric, Feb. 14, 2007

Thank you for your encouragement. Together, we will keep working. It is my


final and every body's common challenge. I am just the foolish old man in the
Chinese fable trying to remove the mountain that blocks progress. What we
initiate will be taken up by future generations I am sure. My second book "World
Harmony Renaissance: Promise for a Better World" is in the final stage of
preparation.

May harmony prevail in the world!

(D) IT IS TIME FOR AMERICA TO ADVOCATE WORLD
HARMONY RENAISSANCE

Dear Jim (James Fallows),

Thank you for your encouragement. America's misiion is also WHO's mission. I
look forward to your continuing support. The following is actually my answer to
the FAQ what can WHO do?

Ancient cultures approximately 2500 years ago or earlier, when there were not
even clearly defined national boundaries of today, developed modern religions,
democracy and harmony. These human heritage were cultivated over hundreds
of years through graduate development. Some were lost and were rediscovered,
such as democracy and harmony. The rediscovery of democracy through
European Renaissance brought the release of energy that herald the advent of
modern scientific age.

America, the dynamic young nation did not have the same time history. Our
mission has come to be the nation of advocacy. We advocated modern religion
and European democracy. We are the nation that has the most resources and
diverse ethnicity to advocate. I learned advocacy in America. It took me fifty
years. With today's international conflicts, religious strife, terrorism, unilateralism,
North and South disparity and ecology concerns, it is time for America to
advocate World Harmony Renaissance. Harmony belongs to the world but we
have the most resources to initiate it's renaissance.

The good news in international affairs are, our envoy is talking to North Korea
about normalization of relations and Rice will be participating at the Middle East
Conference. The announcement of six party talks to proceed with North Korea
Nuclear conflict resolution clearly indicated accommodation on both sides. The
theme of my article at that time was "Beginning of Harmony Renaissance at the
Eastern Front?" After all the Far East was the cradle of basic harmony
practice through individual discipline and family unity. The middle East was the
cradle of harmony through the submission of human will to the creator. European
Renaissance brought harmony between the government and its citizen by
reviving ancient Greek democracy. America's independence advocated
democracy through law and order.

America, the most dynamic major new power, is the country with the most
resources to advocate Harmony Renaissance. Our mission is to lead through
advocacy and not military power. The conflicts of the world, religious strife and
ecology concerns of today tell us the need to be more tolerant, accepting, and
respecting of other cultures and our common heritage. The way to solve world
conflicts is through discussions, consultation and consensus and that is the
harmony way. Harmony is reached through dynamic balance. Where there is
unsustainable imbalance, harmony will work its way. Nature's order is harmony

73
and harmony is the order of nature. Human beings are intelligent individuals. We
can solve our ecology concerns when we practice harmony together.

Harmony Renaissance can be advocated at all levels and through all types of
institutions by education, communication and cultural exchanges. It must also be
grown at the grass root levels through group activities such as World Harmony
Renaissance Day Cultural Festival. I suggest that the first World Harmony Day
festivities be held at the San Francisco Bay Area, after all UN was originally
conceived here. Do we have consensus to initiate the first World Harmony
Renaissance Day?

Harmony belongs to the world. It is our common heritage and common value. It's
revival will bring human to the next level of accomplishment by diverting our
creative energy now mired in conflicts, strife and wars. We will have consensus
to advocate Harmony Renaissance when we work in concert. Unity in diversity is
harmony and together we will have conviction. Be proud you are citizens of the
world and not citizens of one country.

May Harmony Prevail in the World !

(IV)THE ULTIMATE PERSONAL HARMONY PRACTICE
AND WORLD HARMONY RENAISSNCE
In the following discussion, for our purpose, self discipline and inner peace can
be interchanged. Another way to define inner peace is self discipline through
the practice of harmony. There are many diverse ways of achieving inner
peace; this is also one of the principles of harmony. For example, some achieve
inner peace through scholarly accomplishments or higher goals in commerce,
religion, and philanthropy. Ultimately, for lasting inner peace, one must practice
sustainable self discipline. For self discipline to work it must be a consistent
process and sustainable through life. Relying on outside stimulation is not
sustainable through life.

To sustain self discipline, one need to combine higher goals with some form of
regular personal practice such as writing with a theme, calligraphy, meditation,
yoga, Taichi, dancing, singing, or contemplating nature and beauty. For most
people it usually is a combination of diverse methods. There is no one single
solution. In a world of diverse cultures, harmony opens a world of diverse self
discipline practices.

For myself, I complement my self discipline with harmony belief and regular
Taichi practices. I have been at it for over thirty years. Frankly, self discipline
with harmony has been more difficult to achieve than many of my other career
undertakings. It is my final challenge. Taichi, which means ultimate in Chinese,
is a form of moving meditation, and self defense. Taichi embraces the ultimate
harmony principle of soft conquers hard. In Taichi you yield but maintain your
balance and your conviction in the ultimate harmony principle. This conviction is
hard to maintain in life when force and war often temporarily succeed. But the
dark (invisible) energy in the eternal universe proves that Ying (the soft) contains
Yang (the hard).

Harmony and Taichi yielding to absorb confrontation does not mean giving up
nor defeatist belief. Far from it, harmony is an advocacy and everlasting, just
like the universe. As a fluid mechanics major, I imaging myself as moving like a
fluid when practice Taichi. Fluid, the softest material, in the form of water and air
goes around what is in their way and eventually wears out the hardest
object. While they are blocked they will continually build up their resistance to
overcome. Water can float and sink the mightiest ship. Air as light as it is, can
lift and detail spin the biggest air borne vehicle human can conceive.

Harmony, as order of dynamic balance, advocates soft overcomes hard and Ying
contains Yang. When harmony is practiced like the motions of fluids it instills
that conviction. Coupled with personal consistent practice like Taichi,
meditation, or yoga, harmony can be sustaining. In Chinese teaching there is a
saying "XIU SHEN, QI JIA, ZI GUO, PING TIEN ZIA". In today's conflicting
world the appropriate translation is "Self discipline, Family unity, Democracy,

75
World Harmony". In world culture it is also important to quote "Be proud you are
citizens of the world and not citizens of one country".

The essence of Eastern self discipline is to reach harmony with nature. In


Chinese the ancient saying is "Tien Ren He Yi" meaning the unity of man and
nature or man and universe. In this practice traditionally, the Eastern culture
placed more emphasis on moral values and avoiding extremism. The West
inherited moral teachings through Eastern religions. This basic harmony value
of avoiding extremism together with family unity and ancestry worship
continued Chinese culture of 5000 years without causing ecology
catastrophe, despite certain excesses of the past.

The advent of European and American democracy heralded the age of modern
science and cultural Renaissance. But it eventually encouraged individualism,
insatiable consumerism and extremism in the absence of individual personal
harmony practice. In today's conflicting world of 6 billion population and
increasing, each person on earth wanting to own a SUV or HUMVEE is a form of
insatiable extreme consumerism. Simple arithmetic will show this type of
extreme consumerism unchecked places unsustainable demand on our common
world resources.

Cultural excesses of insatiable consumerism and individualism in the West and


its spread to the East now needs to be balanced by Eastern harmony,
moderation and family values. This means bringing back basic family and group
harmony through practice of self discipline. As well meaning as Western law and
order democracy is, our world is not sustainable with the spread of today's
insatiable consumerism and extreme individualism Traditionally in China as
detailed in my book "China's Harmony Renaissance: What the World Must Know"
law is the bottom line, common moral values above it. By necessity we need to
bring back self discipline, mutual development and harmony development. The
premise and title of this book is "World Harmony Renaissance: Promise for a
Better World"

It is paramount that the world through Harmony Renaissance must reach


meaningful World Harmony Consensus. The current continuing rapid
development of China, India and the rest of the developing world must be
encouraged to adopt "Harmony Development" through personal individual self
discipline. The West and parts of the developed Asia at the same time need to
set an example to curb extreme individualism and consumerism. Within the
frame work of this 'World Harmony Consensus" we will see the promise of a
more sustainable and better world, Q.E.D.

Q.E.D. is a Latin term meaning it is demonstrated or proved which I vaguely


remembered from my high school geometry class. During my childhood
enthusiasm that all things Western were good including Western mathematics
and Science, Q.E.D. came to mean with modern science everything is quite
easily done. Frankly reaching World Harmony consensus for Harmony

76
Development can be quite easily done if we practice less individualism and more
harmony through personal discipline. "Be proud you are citizens of the world and
not citizens of one country."

(V) WORLD HARMONY DAY CULTURAL FESTIVAL
PREVIEW

Dear Friends, Feb 24, 2007

Now that we have service trade marks and other legal registrations in place, I
propose that we firm up our previous discussions to launch a large scale all day
INTERNATIONAL music and dance performance festival. The theme will be
World Harmony Renaissance pure and simple. It will be first of its kind world
event to be continued annually and with future engagements in other major world
cities. The event will raise long term funding for World Harmony Ambassadors
and World Harmony Volunteer Corps.

All activities of World Harmony Organization by Charter will be unity in diversity


events, by nature necessarily non political, non religious and non profit. We
welcome participation and financial contributions by various major Silicone
Valley corporations and institutions, included are also various Embassies,
religious and NGO organizations and foundations.

I suggest the first event be held sometime this Fall at the San Francisco State
University Campus Green. SFSU is the birthplace of the first World Harmony
Renaissance Center. The event will be funded by sponsors and we will also
charge entrance because it will be a rich program, well prepared and well
advertised. All local and international communities will be invited to contribute
funding and resources to this most worthwhile cause that advocates World
Harmony Renaissance to solve today's pressing world conflicts, disparities and
ecology issues.

Selected interested distinguished community leaders can become members of


the steering committee to prepare for this ground breaking event and its future
long term planning. Please review this draft notice, comment and suggest
candidates for the steering committee. A final notice will be distributed
worldwide.

Respectfully Yours,

World Harmony Organization launched in San Francisco

www.chinaview.cn 2007-01-21 05:27:09

LOS ANGELES, Jan. 20 (Xinhua) -- The World Harmony Organization(WHO) was


launched in San Francisco on Saturday, with a call on all countries to promote world
peace based on harmony.
WHO, a non-profit and non-governmental organization and the first of its kind in the
world, is dedicated to the pursuit of World Harmony Renaissance study and research,
the organization said in a press release.
"Harmony belongs to the world. The best social system for any country is its own
harmony system for sustainable development," said the release.
It said the organization was formed on the basis of the harmony theory proclaimed
by the Chinese leaders in 2006.
"A major social harmony renaissance movement is taking place in China today after
the 2002 announcement of the scientific concept," said the release.
"We declare our theory 'World Harmony Renaissance' is the breakthrough mankind
is waiting for the next level of accomplishment. When our common values rise above
the current international conflicts through world harmony renaissance our
accomplishments both scientific and cultural will soar."
"World religions and major human philosophies as we all know were developed
about 2500 years ago," said Dr. Francis C. W. Fung, an American researcher who
founded the organization.
"European Renaissance and Enlightenment period brought the second burst of
human creative energy," Fung said. "We believe 'World Harmony Renaissance' will
launch the third phase of human innovation and creativeness to herald a more
harmonious and better world."
At its launch meeting, the organization will hold major global cultural events in San
Francisco to advocate world harmony renaissance. It also plans future events which
include World Harmony Renaissance Symposium, World Harmony Renaissance
Calligraphy Contest, World Harmony Renaissance cultural performances, according to
Fung, author of the China Harmony Renaissance - What the World Must Know.
He said for those who do not understand China's peaceful development, it is time to
learn China's harmony renaissance. Special attention is given to Sino-American
relations over the past 50 years.
"We believe 'World Harmony Renaissance' is hope for a more understanding
world," he said.

CALL FOR WORLD HARMONY DAY CULTURAL
FESTIVAL WORKING MEETING (MARCH, 15,2007)

Dear Working Team Members,

Some of you active members already have developed pieces by thinking through
your ideas from your past experience. We have experts in marketing, large
event planning, some are strong on evening events and some have done all day
events and actual hands on experts in ruining performances. Every body is on a
different speed now. I am used to running my own business so I am good at
facilitating. The small meetings I am coordinating in my last email by no means
replace the regular meetings that I have with some of you. In fact it will
intensify. Because the small group meetings are called to put the pieces
together so we will all move towards our final goal. We are not moving in lock
step now but we will when we begin to see the complete picture. It is my
responsibility for us all to see the complete picture even our harmony vision are
from our own perspective. The underlying unifying force is harmony.

Some said we have world religion day, earth day, Martin Luther King day etc. By
now they are all enterprises on their own. There are also prolific numbers of
freedom, democracy and conflict resolution foundations, think tanks and
NGO's. World harmony renaissance is the only one universal common human
value that is truly all embracing and all inclusive. In view of today's national
conflicts, disparities, unilateralism, terrorism, extremism and ecology concerns
World Harmony Renaissance is the coming tide of human development. It will
release our concerted creative energy by bringing us to a higher plane of
common human value.

In pursuing World Harmony Renaissance we must be independent and truly


international and not relying on any one country. Even though we are all
Americans and we are launching the first World Harmony Day from San
Francisco. When we do our first World Harmony Day Cultural Festival right it
does not have to be big, we will be in an enviable position to pick and choose
sponsors. There will be no lack of Corporate, foundation and individual funding
according to Spencer. I agree whole heartedly.

Life is full of meaningful campaigns for some of us. During the 60's, as a fluid
mechanics major, I was swept up in "Catching up with Russia" rocket and
satellite research. In the 70's, during the declining aerospace years, I did key
research in establishing large scale fire safety computer standardized building
material tests, computer smoke propagation simulation to establish smoke
detector codes and standards. During the 80's I co-founded Aerophyics
Company and Finance and Technology Associates and was active in
International energy conservation technology transfer. My publication list on our
website reflects U.S. national waves of priority like a road map.

82
Of late I am more cultural than scientific. My recent campaigns include peace
painting exhibitions, distribution of top quality music Cd's and publishing of
Harmony Renaissance essays worldwide. That is why some of you get little gifts
of Song of Shangri-La album and Ting Shao Kwong posters. My World Harmony
Renaissance lectures appear locally as well as worldwide through Xinhua
Net and World Affairs Journal announcements. I have come to know famous
artists, calligraphers, distinguished Western authors and record companies. All
my past endeavors and undertakings will add value to our World Harmony Day
Cultural Festival. I will not disappoint you.

I have been hearing great ideas from some of you. It is time to put some of the
ideas together and brain storm. Our tentative date for World Harmony is third
week of September when school is in session. If later, it needs to stay clear of
Oct 1 and Oct. 10. WHO must remain clearly an independent NGO pursuing
World Harmony Renaissance with unbiased spirit of advocacy. World Harmony
Journal, our own voice, when launched will monitor justly international Harmony
development. Harmony is the highest human common value, together
with justice, trustworthiness and self discipline harmony can be maintained. In
the U.S. democracy is maintained by relying heavily on law and order. Harmony
Renaissance will need increasing education and self discipline. See our website
www.worldharmonyorg.net click About US and view concluding section of my
second book on harmony.

Because some of you do travel on a regular basis we may have to settle on


separate meetings during the month of April. I will be diligent in collecting all
your valuable ideas and come up with an action program. By now from the
frequency of my emails nobody need to ever feel slighted. By the way, if you
have not visited our website regularly you will find it has been updated many
times by your inputs. I assure you good ideas will be seriously
considered. Please also never hesitate to communicate with me.

For those who can make it in April please let me know your availability by
email. I can come to you or I will call for small meetings to suit you. I will act as
a facilitator. Appreciate all your support and dedication to World
Harmony. America is the best place to advocate Harmony Renaissance
because of the resources here. Our team can prove unity in diversity works.

Francis.

83
Dear Senior Advisers,

It is time for America to Advocate World Harmony Renaissance !

What sells moves forward with human development. Those who are left behind
will have to fend for themselves. As a reminder for those only remember the
come and go of Dot com boom of the 1990's, how about the aerospace and
energy conservation booms from 1960 to 1980. Booms generally go through
phases.

What will be the next boom? I predict it will be Harmony Renaissance for world
sustainable development. This time It will be a sustained boom to bring us out of
the current international conflicts, religious strife and ecology
concerns. Sustained Harmony Renaissance will bring human to a higher level of
common value and a higher world scientific accomplishments beyond 17th
century European Renaissance. In the 21st century most of us who care, will be
working for Harmony Renaissance, because it is an universal all encompassing
human common ideal. Harmony accepts different religions, political systems
and diverse cultures. It also seeks the dynamic balance of man and nature,
which is ecology. The best political system for any country is its own harmony
system.

The time is here for Multinational Corporations(MC) to put on inclusive harmony


images. They need to tell developing countries they care. All major MC's
practiced exclusive schemes such as trade marks (Coco Cola, McDonald),
Patents (GE, Boeing), Software (Microsoft, Google) and so on. Their exclusivity
gave them legal right to practice monopoly before developing countries can catch
up. Because of the extreme disparity North and South, the under developed
countries are restive. This is part of the underlying dissatisfaction that breeds
terrorism and defiance and not they are evil. The most encompassing inclusive
image for MC's is to practice World Harmony. WHO and I have the credential
and preparation to launch World Harmony Days, World Harmony Ambassadors
and World Harmony Volunteers programs. By participating in WHO harmony
programs MC's inclusive image can be enhanced.

WHO will proactively pursuit our service marked harmony programs. Action is
louder than words. MC's will come along and participate because our programs
can enhance and add value to their image. Our marketing letters can be simple
and sweet. The following are just details on my background.

The energy crisis brought about by the APEC oil embargo during the 1970's and
1980's ushered in a flourish of energy conservation scientific activities like we
have never seen in the U.S. Today's call for climate control by energy
conservation has yet to reach that fever pitch. It was a great opportunity for us
fluid mechanics majors of the time to divert our creativity to help solve the energy
crisis.

84
During the 1960's Rockets and Satellites days I was with Cornell Aeronautics
Lab. and Johns Hopkins University publishing papers in the exotic fields
of Magnetodynamics and Zero Gravity Phenomenon. Once Neil Armstrong
landed on the moon in July 20,1969 the whole U.S. let out a collective sigh, we
have caught up with Russia in the space race. We fluid mechanics majors were
left scrambling for new undertakings.

On the first day of formally launching World Harmony Organization, Jan. 20,
2007 in San Francisco, we announced "World Harmony Consensus Begins with
U.S.-China Harmony" in red, white, blue and yellow unity in diversity
banner. Please open our website www.worldharmonyorg.net and click banner
Contact US. to view the unity in diversity design.

I have always advocated U.S.-China Harmony for over 50 years. During the late
50's at Brown University, International Club, I organized U.S. China Friendship
seminars by inviting famous speakers. One of the meetings was high lighted in
a story about Professor Williams of Dept. of International Studies. Please refer
to my second book on harmony "World Harmony Renaissance:Promise for a
Better World" to read how world politics is changing for the better
through international friendship advocacy.

Beginning the late 70's my wife Julia and I are the earliest supporters of U.S.
China People Friendship Association and participated in U.S.-China Relation
normalization.

U.S.-China harmony is reflected in our bi cultural family. Our children are of


mixed East and West races. Please visit our website
WNW.worldharmonyorg.net and see our family portrait banner advocating
"World Harmony Renaissance Begins with U.S. China Harmony
Consensus". Our Children's Chinese names Aimei, Anhua and Aimin meaning
Love America, Stability in China and Love Humanity. Moving with the tides of
history their names reflect the growth of our longing for Friendship, Stability and
Harmony. Our three children, two are now practicing medicine in the U.S. and
our youngest daughter specializes in East and West dance fusion. I hope she
will agree to perform in World Harmony Day Cultural Festival for a long time to
come.

During the 1980's in the after shock of Oil Embargo. Energy


conservation urgency launched the first wave of ecology movement
in America to harmonize with nature. Today's climate control ecology
movement is only the second wave. It has yet to reach the fever pitch of the late
70's. In my humble effort I co-founded Aerophysics Company with senior
members Gabriel Bohler and Eugene Liberator. They were true believers in
energy conservation. They advocated large scale cross ocean surface effects
ships (SES) to compete with air freight transport. Liberator was the editor in
chief in Jane's Ship of the World on Service Effect Ships. I headed the Energy

85
Division and together we transferred French technology on district heating and
large scale diffusion fans for ocean going SES to U.S. Regretfully the
Aerophysic 50 million dollar Navy service effect ship energy conservation project
was zeroed out by Regan in 1982 with the money diverted to Star War project
instead.

Large SES will eventually take over aircrafts as energy efficient ocean transport
by far and Dr.Bohler and Liberator's pioneer spirit will live on. Liberator also
wrote Liberator Manifesto to advocate his theory of Omnibus Government for
more harmony. I learned a great deal from him. After Aerophyics, my energy
conservation career continued. Among other high lights, I co-founded Finance
and Technology Associates a premier and early consulting firm that acted as
bridge to build relation between China and U.S. multinational corporations.

Together with Dr. Beno Sternlicht, then MTI Chairman, we transferred significant
Stirling Engine technology to China. It culminated in the 2ND International
Conference on Stirling Engines in 1984 with me delivering the keynote speech
"The Promising Future of Stirling Engines in China". For the latest, one can read
about the Victorville,CA 500 megawatts Stirling Engine Utility Plant build for
Southern California Edison. When come on line in 2009, it will be the largest
non polluting, solar utility plant in the world, supplying electricity for 300,000
families with 20,000 solar Stirling Engines.

WHO is greatly honored you can accept our invitation to be our Honorary Senior
Advisers. "Be proud you are citizens of the world an not citizens of one country."

Subject: Stirling Engine Revival and World Harmony Renaissance

Dear Mr. Osborn,CEO,

I have been following the recent development of Stirling Engine


Application in electricity generation using solar power. I am happy to
learn of your Victorville Project, the 500 megawatt utility plant build for
Southern California Edison in today's SF Chronicle. Congratulations
for a major and possibly the largest solar ecology project well earned
and deserving applause. My Stirling Solar Energy connection goes
way back. Together with Beno Sternlicht, then Chairman of MTI, our
group transferred important Stirling Engine technology to Shanghai
Marine Diesel Engine Research Institute during the 1980’s. The
activities culminated in the holding of the Second International
Conference on Stirling Engines in Shanghai, China on June 21-24,
1984. I gave the keynote speech “The Promising Future of Stirling
Engines in China” with emphasis on solar electricity generation in
remote and rural areas.

Now I am founder of World Harmony Organization advocating World


Harmony Renaissance through large scale annual World Harmony
Renaissance Day Cultural Festivals. Harmony belongs to the world.
Its all embracing nature can raise common human value to a higher
level. It can release our creative energy from being mired in
international conflicts, religious strife and terrorist struggles. Acting
in concert harmony renaissance can help solve ecology concerns
through grass root awareness of harmony with nature. The concept
of harmony with nature, ancient Chinese called “Tien Ren He YI”
meaning unity with the universe. I believe Harmony Renaissance like

87
Stirling Engine revival can play a significant part in helping human to
harmonize with nature. Working together, SES and WHO can further
promote ecology through large scale World Harmony cultural events
based on the protection of our World Harmony Renaissance services
trade marks and other legal rights. For more info please visit our
website www.worldharmonyorg.net.

I look forward to a meaningful email discussion leading to productive


personal meeting. WHO can also add value to possible renewed
Stirling Engine cooperation with China. WHO is supported by
distinguished individual thinkers such as Noam Chomsky, James
Fallows, Harold Pinter and well known artists who will perform in our
annual Harmony Renaissance Festivals. The following is our call for
broad American advocacy in support of World Harmony
Renaissance.

To those who are in resonance with World Harmony Renaissance, thank you
for your encouragement. America’s mission is also WHO's mission. I look
forward to your continuing support. The following is actually my answer to
the FAQ what can WHO do?

Ancient cultures approximately 2500 years ago or earlier, when there were
not even clearly defined national boundaries of today, developed modern
religions, democracy and harmony. These human heritages were cultivated
over hundreds of years through graduate development. Some were lost and
were rediscovered, such as democracy and harmony. The rediscovery of
democracy through European Renaissance brought the release of energy that
herald the advent of modern scientific age.

America, the dynamic young nation did not have the same time history. Our
mission has come to be the nation of advocacy. We advocated
modern religion and European democracy. We are the nation that has the
most resources and diverse ethnicity to advocate. I learned advocacy in
America. It took me fifty years. With today's international conflicts,
religious strife, terrorism, unilateralism, North and South disparity and
ecology concerns, it is time for America to advocate World Harmony
Renaissance. Harmony belongs to the world but we have the most resources
to initiate it's renaissance.

88
The good news in international affairs are, our envoy is talking to North
Korea about normalization of relations and Rice will be participating at the
Middle East Conference. The announcement of six party talks to proceed
with North Korea Nuclear conflict resolution clearly indicated
accommodation on both sides. The theme of my article at that time was
"Beginning of Harmony Renaissance at the Eastern Front?" After all the Far
East was the cradle of basic harmony practice through individual discipline
and family unity. The middle East was the cradle of harmony through the
submission of human will to the creator. European Renaissance brought
harmony between the government and its citizen by reviving ancient Greek
democracy. America 's independence advocated democracy through law and
order.

America , the most dynamic major new power, is the country with the most
resources to advocate Harmony Renaissance. Our mission is to lead through
advocacy and not military power. The conflicts of the world, religious strife
and ecology concerns of today tell us the need to be more tolerant,
accepting, and respecting of other cultures and our common heritage. The
way to solve world conflicts is through discussions, consultation and
consensus and that is the harmony way. Harmony is reached through
dynamic balance. Where there is unsustainable imbalance, harmony will
work its way. Nature's order is harmony and harmony is the order of
nature. Human beings are intelligent individuals. We can solve our ecology
concerns when we practice harmony together.

Harmony Renaissance can be advocated at all levels and through all types of
institutions by education, communication and cultural exchanges. It must
also be grown at the grass root levels through group activities such as World
Harmony Renaissance Day Cultural Festival. I suggest that the first World
Harmony Day festivities be held at the San Francisco Bay Area, after all UN
was originally conceived here. Do we have consensus to initiate the first
World Harmony Renaissance Day?

Harmony belongs to the world. It is our common heritage and common


value. It's revival will bring human to the next level of accomplishment
by diverting our creative energy now mired in conflicts, strife and wars. We
will have consensus to advocate Harmony Renaissance when we work in
concert. Unity in diversity is harmony and together we will have
conviction. Be proud you are citizens of the world and not citizens of one
country.
