WORLD HARMONY RENAISSANCE IN 21th CENTURY
Excerpt from Jan 2007 speech by Hon. John Prescott, Deputy Prime Minister and First Secretary of State, United Kingdom:
There's been a great deal of talk about harmony in recent times. In fact, the academic, Francis Fung, has argued in his recent paper "Chinese Harmony Culture: Old and New - Promise for a Less Confrontational World" that China is witnessing a harmony renaissance. He claims that great debates are happening today in China over whether Socialism with Chinese characteristics can be Socialism with harmony. And Fung maintains that China's harmony socialism will provide an alternative model, as the leading system of governance in the 21st Century.
和谐是当今世界一个伟大的话题。冯忠华博士在其最近发表的学术论文《中国的新旧和谐文化：能承诺一个没有对抗的世界吗？》 中表示，中国正经历一场和谐复兴。他说，今天中国正进行一场中国特色社会主义是否就是和谐社会主义的大辩论。冯先生认为 ， 中国的和谐社会主义将提供另一种治理制度模式，成为 21 世纪的主导。

It is wonderful to see the concept of a "harmony" paradigm being promoted in the media. So much of Western cultural history has been based on a conflict paradigm (crusades, competition for scarce resources, clash of civilizations, political struggle, etc.). It is extremely important to open people's minds to unity, universal love and harmony as governing principles of society, the world and the universe.

Harmony advocates non-violence. Its’ premises are tolerance, acceptance, respect, equity, patience and humility. As powerful as we are we will not have nobility and hope unless we practice humility. This is the new global awareness. Harmony is the conduit to facilitate multi-directional cultural flow, Dr. Fung has initiated the World Harmony Organization in North America and has already attracted interest and support. It is a growing influence in North America, Europe and China from important figures in academic and social circles, economics and politics, as well as a growing number of concerned citizens in many countries.
和谐复兴的浪潮不可避免，在场所有人士都将成为和谐复兴的开拓者。和谐主张非暴力，前提是宽容、接纳、尊重、平等、耐心 和谦卑。美国已十分强大，但若不谦卑，我们就不会高贵，没有希望。这是新的全球共识。和谐是促进交流的导线，多元文化不 仅由西向东，或由北向南。和谐多元统一的凝聚力，包罗万象。冯博士在北美地区组建的世界和谐组织已引起广泛关注和支持。 在北美、欧洲和中国等许多国家的影响越来越大，引起学术界、社会各界人士，经济与政治重要人物乃至民众越来越多的关注。

I have been reading professor Fung's letters and articles on harmony renaissance, and have become completely enraptured by the hope of future possibility that they bring. My main area of study lies squarely within Dr. Fung’s realm of thought insofar as ascertaining the facets of Chinese thought that may be able to ameliorate the social situation of my country and the world at large.

HARMONY RENAISSANCE AND THE NECESSITY OF REINVENTION
By Francis C. W. Fung, PH.D.
Necessity is the mother of invention. This well known axiom is as applicable in all human activities and the scientific and technological world as well as in our ideologies or common values development. The three great cultural inventions of mankind: religion, harmony and democracy are leading examples. From their early inception at the beginning of human civil societies they have played dominant roles as cultural pillars of human civilization. From historical perspective, their eternal evolvement and interactions will be never ending. Extremism resulting from religion and democracy confrontations was largely due to consequences of claims to supremacy by different schools and the determined drive of human corruption and promotion. Truism in important discoveries is bound to be rediscovered or reinvented at times of need also. Not to speak of the countless religious rebirths even to the modern day, the rebirth of democracy is one of the most meritorious human reinvention. Heralded by events of the European Age of Enlightenment, following the dire need for order after the European Dark Ages, democracy led to America’s own declaration of independence. In conjuncture with European Renaissance the ideal of democracy released the human creative energy that led to today’s modern scientific world. The need of harmony as universal human value for order and stability came to being in China approximately 3000 years ago through the Spring and Autumn and Warring States period. It climaxed in Lao Zi’s Dao De Jing approximately 2500 years ago. The continuity of the 5000 years of Chinese history in part was due to Lao Zi and his follower’s harmony teaching. In his Dao De Jing, Lao Zi believed that the universe was created from the dark energy of the infinite firmament. He attributed harmony as the underlying operating principle of the universe. The order of the universe is harmony that is why it existed eternally. The order of nature is also the order of the universe thus nature’s order is also to seek harmony. Lao Zi’s teaching can be summed up in one of Daoism’s famous sayings, “Tian Ren He Yi”. This means the universe and human are harmonious as one. This deep philosophical thought has provided the Chinese and Eastern civilization the spiritual fruit and peace of mind for centuries. This explains in part why China did not feel the strong drive to develop its own major religion; instead she accepted most major religions of the world. When one is at peace with the infinite power of the universe where all the creative dark energy came from one is at peace with oneself and the creator of the universe. There is no need to be overly dependent on humanized all mighty creator in most institutional religions. It is well known that major religious wars were 4
notably absent despite many civil struggles in Chinese history. This relatively tolerant attitude of the Chinese was well demonstrated by Confucius. When asked by his students on the importance of religion, his reply was “Respect the Gods but stay detached”. In times of difficulties China had at times resorted to civil and ideological struggles. Fortunately the ancient teachings of harmony, embracing the truth of forgiveness, tolerance and humility, eventually returned and triumphed over extremism. In the last 200 years of upheaval, China was at a loss facing the onslaught of an aggressive Western materialistic culture. For generations Confucius teaching had placed the merchant class at the lowest ladder of Chinese civil society. During the last 30 years of reform and opening up the break neck speed of development in China was unprecedented in human history. With its positive economic benefits it also brought conflicts between the rich and poor, the old and new and the powerful and the powerless. In short, rapid progress brings major societal disharmony, especially in the most populous nation of the world of 1.3 billion. Harmony belief has been in the background in China and the world for too long. For the last two Western dominated centuries religion and democracy were in center stage. It is a good sign that China beginning in 2004, rediscovered harmony when the strong need was felt by her leaders. At the same time the need for world harmony through its renaissance is acute in today’s conflicting world, burdened with undue extremism and unilateralism. Harmony is a universal common value and renaissance is action. Together harmony comes to life. At the end of this essay is a draft world harmony preamble and declaration to call for world support and consensus. This call for harmony renaissance is the inevitable tide of reinvention by necessity. In rediscovering harmony, China also rediscovers its own roots. No nation can stand up unless it can grow on its own roots. There have been numerous essays by the present author and others written on the need for harmony renaissance. The author’s experience in West to East technology transfer highlights the importance of East and West exchange, with particular significance in harmony renaissance. To illustrate the importance of a multilateral world and the future tide, we now venture to disclose the benefits of multilateral cultural exchange. America is very proud of its creativity and American knowhow. It is true that America, as a new nation has been very successful in technology commercialization. The rapid growth of commercial airliners, space ships, computers and the worldwide web, all great modern technologies, owe a great deal to America’s entrepreneur spirit and creativity. Actually in the thousands of years of accumulated human wisdom and experience there is little new useful discovery today but more of applications of ancient trial and proven 5
technologies to the modern setting. The great success of computer technology relies heavily on the world common heritage of Boolean algebra, logic programming, transistor technologies, and integrated circuits as well as mundane repeated photographic applications. Some of these technologies go back thousands of years and were discovered by ancient cultures. They are reinvented or rediscovered to apply to the great achievement of modern computer. Without the collective efforts of common human experience it may be safe to say that our computerized world may never have been realized. There lies the beauty of a multilateral world. Since the beginning of human interactions, diverse human wisdoms and inventions are continuously propagated by harmony through the spread of commerce. With the advent of the most modern nano construction materials, time has come to build appropriate power turbine towers for rural and isolated regional electricity generation by utilizing solar energy, waste heat, biogas and geothermal energy. This low cost power generation technology using locally available fuel and energy is economically feasible because of the new MPC cement with high fly ash content. It is light weight, high strength, high temperature resistant at the same time easy to form and process. Its short setting time and strong bounding properties allows onsite construction with ease. The present vertical power turbine design can also easily team up with available VAT wind turbine technology for electricity generation. When applied in large scale this type of design, can be widely used to rapidly electrify the developing world for modern conveniences such as lights, radios, computers, microwave ovens and other small appliances. This reinvention of the power turbine for green electricity generation has a long human heritage that further illustrates the essential spirit of East and West cultural exchange. The vertical simple power turbine in the form of a rotating lantern was first observed as early as two thousand years ago at the period of Three Kingdoms in China. Legend has it that it was invented by the famous military strategist and prime minister of Han Kingdom. Hence it was called Kung Ming lantern in honor of him. The idea of the Kung Ming lantern has a lit candle at the bottom and a turbine on top. The convection current driven by the buoyancy of the heated air turns the inner lantern that casts rotating human shadows on the wall. The military value of the lantern was said to deceive the enemy. The idea of the air driven power turbine resurfaced immediately after Second World War when Rolls Royce perfected the gas turbine engine for jet aircrafts. The design was made possible by the high strength and heat resistant properties of the titanium alloy power turbine. This heralded the jet airplane and the subsequent continental jet air travel. U.S. 6
manufacturers Pratt and Whitney and General Electric again were quick to follow Rolls Royce in commercialization. Just as after the first Russian Sputnik, America was quick to commercialize the space and satellite communication age. During the 1980’s the author was instrumental in assisting Cooper Rolls (a joint venture of U.S. Cooper Industries and British Rolls Royce) to convert China’s moth balled Spey aircraft gas turbine engines for oil field and off shore platform electricity generation, by using power turbine technology. The current low cost power turbine design patent for appropriate electricity comes in full circle by reinventing the power turbine technology first observed in China as Kung Ming lantern 2000 years ago. The present patent embodies the Bernoulli principle, buoyancy, atmospheric pressure difference and ideal gas law for power generation. If China commercializes this application because of strong need to provide low cost electricity to its rural and vast remote areas it could be a wind fall for most of the developing world. This is the beauty of a multilateral world cultural and technology exchange. Of more significance, the eventual world harmony renaissance initiated by China, can be the most meritorious cultural reinvention of human kind. Harmony is a great human discovery that begs to be rediscovered. It embraces our common values of tolerance, acceptance, forgiveness, equity and humility. In the developed world today some of these virtues are in short supply. There lies in the importance of East and West cultural exchange. The world is not sustainable by thriving only on Western transfer of technology and ideology to the East. Harmony is an ancient Eastern philosophy that will prove to be the greatest Eastern cultural contribution to world civilization. It is the new wave of civil society that will release the world from the current burden of extremism and unilateralism. It will release the new innovative energy that the world has been waiting for to bring us to the next level of human accomplishment beyond European Renaissance. HARMONY PREAMBLE In the East harmony as a social science theory was evolved from natural science observation by Lao Zi. Human in harmony with the universe is called Tian Ren He Yi. Einstein was also quoted as saying the order of nature is not accidental. Harmony is the order of nature. Harmony belongs to the World and to the Universe. WORLD HARMONY ORGANIZATION "HARMONY DECLARATION" Harmony is the highest common value. Renaissance is action. Together they have life. 7
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. From the very beginning, the Universe is created by the infinite invisible energy in the firmament. The invisible energy that created the universe can also be called DAO. Lao Zi 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." Lao Zi's harmony theory of universe is in unison with modern quantum physics. 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. World Harmony Organization Signers Francis C. W. Fung PH.D.

CHINA’S GRAND STRATEGY EVOLVING WITH CONCEPT OF SCEINTIFIC DEVELOPMENT
By Francis C. W. Fung, PH.D. Under the impact of Western science and civilization, China for more than two hundred years was searching for a development direction of her own, which would not entail giving up her tradition and identity. The period of search began at the end of Qing dynasty, when China suffered humiliations one after the other under the reigning colonial powers of the time. This continuing process of development struggle lasted through foreign domination, invasions and domestic upheavals until the end of the twentieth century. China’s history of trial and tribulations during this time period is well documented in literature. From it, the Chinese nation collectively paid dearly and learned the hard lessons necessary to move forward like all great national revivals of the past. Human civilization as a whole cannot afford to neglect the over 5000 years of valuable Chinese culture and tradition. That will be most regrettable. China is moving into the 21st Century with impressive economic development unprecedented in human history for such a large nation which began with the reform and open up policy initiated by the late Deng Xiaoping. It occurred during the last 30 years of relative peace and stability after the end of the cold war era. It is understandable that the nation of China as a whole looked back at the involuntary isolation of the cold war era with a great deal of misgiving. For all nations to progress with the world it must be given the level field to interact with the outside. For great powers to exercise its naval power to contain other nation’s development is inhumane. Having achieved relative economic successes, China is now looking to sustainable development. Great debates are occurring in China especially during the last five years on its continuing path of development and modernization. From the debates, the Chinese Central government has launched two ground breaking concepts that can open the flood gate of innovative sustainable thinking. The 2004 Concept of Scientific development led eventually to the 2006 “Decisions for the building of a harmony society”. Can China develop according to this approach? What other factors must occur in China? What are the other necessary conditions for China to stay the course? Is this the direction for socialism building with Chinese characteristics of which we so often hear? Has China finally found its unique direction of development? It is important for both the developed and the developing countries to find out. It will affect the destiny of almost one quarter of world’s population and perhaps other developing countries’ development. Will this lead to the so called Beijing Consensus? More important, will it finally take hold in China and last? The essence of ancient Chinese culture is reverence of the “Great Way” (Dao) as taught by Lao Zi, and pursuit of Harmony with humility as a belief system handed down by Confucius and her other sages. Simply put, Chinese culture reveres the Great Way and 9
has strong affinity for harmony. This affinity is reflected with prominence in the Chinese ceremonial way of life, landscaping, building design, Fengshui practices and moral codes and values. Dao is the highest order of belief and is the origin of the universe. It is nature’s order and is the unification of the scientific spirit and human spirit. It is the soul and roots of Chinese culture. A culture can never deny its own heritage. A culture which looses its own roots is devoid of its own soul. The ultimate goal of practicing Dao is to reach inner peace and live in harmony with the universe (Tian Ren He Yi). This includes harmony with nature, harmony within the family, the society, the country and harmony among nations. To reach broad harmony, Dao must lead us to harmony through trust, justice, equity, forgiveness, tolerance and humility. Human development so far has been dominated by “Survival Aggression” with the strong overwhelming the weak, the worst examples were military conquests, colonialism and forcing one’s development model on others by force. China as a traditional agriculture, as opposed to a predominantly nomadic society, has been an exceptionally peaceful major nation that did not have a history of foreign conquest. Because of the last two hundred years of domination and humiliation by foreign imperialistic nations China today has a strong distaste to the practice of “Survival Aggression”. That is why China today is advocating harmony society and world harmony through harmony renaissance (see “China’s Harmony Renaissance- What the World Must Know” by the author). Today the inevitable tide of harmony with nature is also beginning to catch on. The world consensus of harmony with nature will lead to the recognition of the need for harmony among nations also. Mutual development, win-win development will gradually replace the past blind zero sum mentality of world development. World harmony renaissance will release humans from the bondage of destructive- survival confrontations. It will release our collective creative energy for constructive mutual development. Human history has gone through two major phases of development. Approximately two thousand years ago, the world saw a burst of philosophical ideas spreading through the world for universal love and order. Five hundred years or so ago, the age of enlightenment and European Renaissance gave us democracy and today’s modern science. Harmony Renaissance is the third phase of development that will yield a level playing field for all nations to enjoy the fruits of common human innovation. Our collective accomplishments will far surpass the achievements of European Renaissance (see “World harmony Renaissance- Promise for a Better World” by the author). Having achieved relative economic success during the last 30 years of reform and opening up the new China of today is faced with the dilemmas of uneven development, reconciliation of the old and new caused by breakneck speed of change. The new China of 58 years is going through unprecedented upheavals relative to its entire recorded history of over 5000 years. As a matter of fact the tumult caused by unprecedented rapid change experienced by China today, also has no parallel in human history of any major nation. At times, China overwhelmed by the impact of Western culture, appeared to be lost. As meritorious as the philosophies of DAO and harmony as universal common values, they will not become the grand strategy of development for China. There also needs to be 10
no fear for the so called “Beijing Consensus” that will be exported to the developing world. The future world is fast becoming a multilateral world. Just as we witness how the world conflicts brought on by attempts to claim religious superiority led to cultural clashes, the disastrous aftermath of America’s enforcing of its own democratic system on Iraq is for all to see. Religion, democracy, Dao and harmony philosophies are essential to teach us common values for our hearts to reach peace within ourselves. They are beliefs for each person to strive for according to his cultural heritage. On the other hand the grand strategy of development for any nation must develop from within and not to be forced from the outside. In a multilateral world no nation wishes to be preached at either. So for China, its grand strategy for development must be “socialism with Chinese characteristics” as wisely announced by the consensus conclusion reached by the 17 CPC National Congress that just ended October 21st, 2007. According to the headlines, China’s grand strategy will evolve from the concept of scientific development with the objective of building a relatively prosperous, just, and harmonious society for all. And the grand strategy incorporating the objective of harmony will be the result of a comprehensive master plan of executable engineering system analysis, comprising the following critical pieces. The order of importance of each element in the following outline is not fixed, but will sure be subject to the dynamic evolvement of a complex and fluid society in its development. But the harmony spirit of the great Dao of discovering the new and old must remain intact as put forth by the author in the following summary: ALL NATIONAL DEVELOPMENTS MUST BE CONTINULY EVOLVING AND IN TOUCH WITH WORLD DEVELOPMENT. ONCE DISTURBED FORCIBLY BY OUTSIDE FORCE INSTABILITY WILL SET IN. CHINESE GRAND STRATEGY IS EVOLVING FROM THE 2004 CONCEPT OF SCIENTIFIC DEVELOPMENT. IT IS, ACCORDING TO THE CPC, A SYSTEM OF CHINESE SOCIALISM WITH CHINESE CHARACTERISTICS. CHINESE CURRENT DEVELOPMENT SHALL CONSIST OF ECONOMIC, POLITICAL, SCIENTIFIC AND SOCIETAL ELEMENTS. CONTINUE THE CURRENT MOMENTUM OF REFORM AND OPENING UP, FINE TUNE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT. EXPAND CONCEPT OF SCIENTIFIC DEVELOPMENT INTO SYSTEM ENGINEERING GUIDE LINES. GRADUALLY INTRODUCE POLITICAL REFORM TO INTRODUCE MORE PARTICIPATION TO SUIT MODERN DEVELOPMENT. PROMULGATE LAWS TO SUPPORT ECONOMIC AND POLITICAL REFORMS. DEVELOPMENT MUST BE IN HARMONY WITH NATURE. SOCIALISM IN THE INITIAL STAGE MUST BUILD A STRONG ECONOMIC FOUNDATION. CHINA IS STILL AT THE EARLY STAGE OF SOCIALIST DEVELOPMENT. 11
MARXISM MUST BE EVOLUTIONARY AND IN TOUCH WITH WORLD DEVELOPMENT. CHINA WILL BE FOREVER AGAINST HEGEMONY AND WILL PROMOTE MUTUAL AND WIN-WIN DEVELOPMENT. ADVOCATE DAO AND HARMONY RENAISSANCE AS NATIONAL REVIVAL. ADVOCATE HARMONY DIPLOMACY AS THE GOLDEN RULE OF WORLD GOVERNANCE. SOCIALISM WITH CHINESE CHARACTERISTICS IS SOCIALISM WITH HARMONY. BUILD HARMONY SOCIETY WITH HARMONY BETWEEN TRADITIONAL VALUE, MODERN HUMAN RIGHTS AND SOCIALISTIC DEVELOPMENT. MAINTAIN HARMONY BETWEEN STATE AND DIFFERENT FORMS OF PRIVATE AND MARKET ECONOMY. PROMOTE WORLD HARMONY THROUGH ECOLOGY CONSENSUS AND UNITY OF MAN WITH NATURE. IN CHINA THE SAYING IS TIEN REN HE YI. IN ENGLISH, LACKING A TRADITIONAL TERM PERHAPS THE APT DESCRIPITION IS COLLECTIVELY BUILDING A GREEN WORLD. Francis C. W. Fung, PH.D. Director General World Harmony Organization
WILL U.S. DEMOCRACY AND CHINESE HARMONY BE HARMONIOUS IN 21st CENTURY?
BY FRANCIS C. W. FUNG, PH.D. Can the promotion of democracy, as advocated by President Bush and current presidential front runners, succeed again in the 21st Century? Must all developing nations emulate the American democracy model along the path to modernity? United calls for the return of the U.S.A. to Cold War glory are sounded regularly with seemingly no thought given to the negative implications associated with this type of policy shift. The politics of one era rarely suit the next with any accuracy, so why would the 21st and 20th century be any different? The major trading countries of the 21st Century will be more in tune with win-win mutual developments as opposed to the old concept of zero sum games. In very convincing terms, recent foreign policy essays appearing in Foreign Affairs, by Barack Obama, Mitt Romney, Rudy Giuliani and John Edwards all repeated democracy diplomacy as the center piece of renewed U.S. leadership for the 21st Century. Will U.S. democracy and Chinese harmony be harmonious in 21st century? Senator Obama in “Renewing American Leadership”, first proposed power diplomacy backed by a strong military with repeated use of pressure to achieve U.S. leadership, stating: “I will build a 21st Century military and a 21st Century partnerships as strong as the anticommunist alliance that won the Cold War to stay on the offense everywhere from Djibouti to Kandahar”. In reality the higher goal of the modern world today is development and not unilateral confrontations. It is a world consensus that may have escaped our politicians because we are still basking in the glory of the Cold War victory. The lesson we must learn from the Cold War is forgiveness, not that our power to win in that period signifies our greatness. After half a century of senseless name-calling we must have the magnanimity to forgive our old adversaries and move on to the 21st Century of Harmony and win-win mutual development. In Governor Romney’s article, we are presented with the powerful thesis of “Rising to a New Generation of Global Challenges” when we in reality have no powerful opponents beyond our own fear. Again, he invokes the glory of winning the Cold War through democracy diplomacy. According to Romney “In the aftermath of World War II and with coming of the Cold War”, members of “the Greatest Generation” united America and the free world around shared values and actions that changed history. Romney believes that “our current generation can match the courage, dedication, and vision of the greatest generation”. In conclusion he states unequivocally that “We are a unique nation, and there is no substitute for our leadership”. It is a natural tendency among great nations, in times of trouble, to search the annals of their own history to influence current policies. If the U.S.A. is to reestablish hostile relations with powerful nations, this will serve only to bolster anti-American forces around the world and galvanize regimes whose fundamental premise relies on America pursuing this course of action. It is time for America to see that it is Harmony that lies at the foundation of all new world leadership today. It is Harmony that will bring America back in line with major forces around the world. 13
Mayor Giuliani in “Toward a Realistic Peace” outlined a policy of defending civilization and defeating terrorists by making the international system work. According to the article “the next U.S. president will face three key foreign policy challenges. First and foremost, will be to set a course for victory in the terrorists’ war on global order. The second will be to strengthen the international system that the terrorists seek to destroy. The third will be to extend the benefits of the international system in an ever widening arc of security and stability across the globe. The most effective means for achieving these goals are building a stronger defense, developing a determined diplomacy, and expanding our economic and cultural influence... To this end, the Voice of America program must be significantly strengthened and broadened. Its surrogate stations, such as Radio Free Europe and Radio Liberty, which were so effective at inspiring grass-roots dissidents during the Cold War, must be expanded as well”. In “Reengaging with the World-A Return to Moral Leadership” Senator Edwards asserted “the United States today needs to reclaim the moral high ground that defined our foreign policy for much of the last Century”. Little are most Americans aware, because of our own closed mindedness, the world is not waiting for us to return to our past moral high ground. The world of the 21st Century is moving towards a higher common value of harmony renaissance. World harmony will propagate through resonance with just commerce and win-win mutual development. There will be no need for sponsorship from the great power of democracy as in the Cold War era. While, according to Senator Edwards “we must lead the world by demonstrating the power of our ideals, not by stoking fear about those who do not share them”. Senator Edwards is dead right to point out the failure of the Bush democracy diplomacy in Iraq but he fails to acknowledge the necessity of perceiving new ideals prevalent throughout the world as the standard to which our policies and bias must adapt. President Bush has promoted Democracy as the cornerstone of his foreign policy. This is amply addressed in his second inaugural speech and the 2006 National Security Strategy. Failing to prove the presence of Iraqi Weapons of Mass Destruction he went on to justify the occupation as a victory for democracy. In doing so Bush committed a double jeopardy that further discredited him in front of the world. In reality, democracy is nowhere near being established, let alone secured in Iraq or the Middle East. But the failure of Bush’s Middle East democracy diplomacy does not obscure the successful propagation of democracy in the last century. In fact, 20th century democracy has seen great success as the preferred means of popular sovereignty governance, but not as a monolithic structure without variation. It is the variety with which democracy is developed and carried out that has infinitely deepened the appeal to developing nations. The fact that varied forms of democracy can co-exist peacefully draws nations and people in without stirring thoughts of Imperialism. This generic definition of democracy allows the majority of newly independent countries of the world can claim their own brand of democracy, which is different from the U.S. system. In a recent Foreign Affairs article titled “Democracy without America: The Spontaneous Spread of Freedom” Michael Mandelbaum, of Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies, elucidated clearly that the “time for creating the social conditions 14
conducive to liberty is, at a minimum, a generation. Not only the apparatus of liberty take time to develop, it must be developed independently and domestically; it cannot be sent from elsewhere and implanted, ready made.” — “The age of empire has ended. Nowhere are people eager, or even willing, to be ruled by foreigners, a point the U.S. encounter with Iraq has illustrated all too vividly.” This line of contemporary thinking advocating the spread of common ideals as well as democracy is well documented in foreign affairs studies and is also routinely presented by the present author. Twenty years ago the present author organized world peace painting exhibitions in Hong Kong and Taiwan out of personal interest. In the process, we discovered two common truisms about values that are very much applicable to the 21st Century. Trustworthiness and win-win commerce are essential for world peace. Encouraged by this simple discovery, our banner calligraphy for our exhibition exclaimed “The Grand Era of Peace and Harmony will Surely Come.” According to Mandelbaum, “The institutions, skills, and values needed to operate a free market economy are those that, in the political sphere, constitute democracy.” — “Perhaps most important, the free market generates the organizations and groups independent of the government — businesses, trade unions, professional associations, clubs, and the like—that are known collectively as civil society, which is itself indispensable to a democratic political system.” History has also shown that the ideal of freedom and popular sovereignty is best spread by commerce when the necessary rise in each nation’s education and living standards make conditions ready. It must take hold internally in the fertile ground of the gradually maturing civil society. Recent transformations to popular sovereignty governance systems in the Far East include the gradual self-awakening of the socialist system of China. The political reform that followed the economic success in China may result in a socialist-democracy with Chinese characteristics, which is very promising. This developing trend in China can also be called a socialist system with Chinese harmony, which integrates state economy and market economy. The system of government that will inevitably be most suited to a country is that which is harmonious with its own specific cultural, historical and other varied idiosyncrasies that no imported system can possibly incorporate. The Chinese term for harmony is composed of “Freedom of Speech and Contentment to All” demonstrating the wisdom inherent in the Chinese language handed down from generation to generation. The current use of military force and “power diplomacy” to promote U.S. values is backfiring. The Iraq occupation debacle makes the developing world suspicious of American motives, a fact nobody can deny. Senior statesmen purport to be blind to this growing sentiment in order to entrench a standard of complacency already well established throughout the population. American diplomatic relations with the majority of the world today are at their lowest in the last 50 years. The revival of bygone Cold War propaganda is bound to fail as it is out of touch with the needs of most of the developing world for growth.
The ideology of democracy is well understood and considered necessary to the modern world, but the concept is insufficient if it is not imbued with the notion of harmony. Harmony Renaissance is the next phase of a human breakthrough that will unleash creativity beyond that which even the European Renaissance bore out. Religious strife, unilateral confrontation and egocentric philosophies will dissipate as the trend towards harmony becomes more influential and the innumerable possibilities of this potentiality are brought to bare. In my book “China’s Harmony Renaissance: What the World Must Know” I detailed the thesis that the three main pillars of human civilization since ancient times are Middle Eastern religions, European democracy and Chinese harmony. Their spread has the most profound influence on human culture and will continue until time immemorial. In previous essays entitled “Harmony Propagates by Resonance”, “Universal Wave Theory and Harmony Consensus”, and “Harmony Universal World Common Heritage” I proposed that harmony propagates by resonance without the need of states unduly brandishing their soft power. Because resonance is nature’s preferred way of propagation, to independently seek resonance in harmony will become simple human nature in the modern era. Our own lack of awareness has allowed past tradition, religion, and democracy to be corrupted by human institutions and state sponsorship. The seed of the harmony renaissance sits within each individual waiting to spring to life with inner peace and a peace with nature. With today’s universal awareness, harmony can escape human corruption because unity in diversity is accepted as an essential aspect of this global community in which we live. The beauty of harmony is its simplicity. Its universality. That is why it does not need state sponsorship, although like any facet of human culture, education helps its resonance. History has shown religion and democracy were regularly promoted by institutions and state sponsorships. Therein lies the dilemma of past religion and democracy extremism. Both religion and democracy will need harmony to soften their harshness and extremism that have been wrought by institutions and state sponsorship. Countless wars have been fought over religion and democracy in the past and continue today. As demonstrated by history, harmony can propagate in its most effective manner with little interference eventually becoming a common universal value. Inherent in harmony is its renunciation of violence. History has no record of wars over harmony. The development of mutually beneficial trade has evinced the unlikelihood of war as an outcome from harmony propagation. Espousing tolerance, acceptance, mutual respect, equity, humility and forgiveness as values for universal conflict resolution, harmony will be the ultimate solution bringing lasting peace and unity to the unyielding diversity of human cultures. In the 21st Century, harmony will propagate through resonance with the spread of commerce and mutual development like waves on the surface of the water. Democracy will be further carried by the wave of harmony like fish in water. For democracy to take hold in any nation a civil society with integrated market economy is a prerequisite. Without the necessary societal order and harmony consensus, democracy will wither. A return to global cultural values of tolerance, mutual acceptance, respect, equity, humility 16
and forgiveness through Harmony Renaissance will fertilize all national soil for democracy to grow even in the most obstinate ground. Unilateralism and arrogance, as practiced primarily by the U.S. today, creates great obstacles for international democracy. Thus harmony renaissance must pave the ground for the advancement of international democracy. Brining harmony together with democracy under one banner striving to attain the common goal of prosperity and peace for all nations, whether developed or developing is the road to success in the future. May harmony prevail in the world! Francis C. W. Fung, PH.D. Director General World Harmony Organization
READER'S RESPONSE TO "WILL U.S. DEMOCRACY AND CHINESE HARMONY BE HARMONIOUS IN 21ST CENTURY"
BY MORGAN STEACY, YORK UNIVERSITY, ASIAN STUDIES.
Weapons are nothing but instruments of evil. They are used only when there is no other choice. Therefore, he who wins a battle is not praiseworthy. If he thinks himself worthy, He delights in the victory. He who delights in the victory, Delights in the slaughter of men. Francis Fung has recently turned his sights to the trend in American thought that is decidedly unaware that people today may think as Lao Zi did 2500 years ago that any and all death for whatever purpose is bad. There is a simple equation that has faded into distant reminiscence that we need to get reacquainted with immediately. It goes as follows: if A kills B, B is going to want to kill A. This also works in the other direction. So, what winds up happening is that A kills B and then B kills A, and then A kills B and B kills A again and finally both B and A are so tired of fighting that they have forgotten exactly what it was that began the whole mess in the first place. Their economies have been destroyed and the people are miserable on both sides. But, not to worry about all of that because, at least, no one in the world thinks that they are a weak country. No one will dare say that they did not stand their ground. No one will claim that they do not stand by their principles even if it costs them thousands, perhaps hundreds of thousands of human lives. If history holds any answers to future existence then I think it is high time that we start to examine what those keys may be. It is certain that up until this point there has never been an extended period of time of global peace and harmony. At no time did the peoples of the world unite to abandon all time-tested arguments and start fresh. The world, because it has never had the chance to wipe the slate clean, and because my equation from earlier holds true, is full of people who are constantly wandering the streets yearning for revenge. Much of that vengeful spirit has been focused directly at the U.S.A. because of their position of supreme power in the world today. This is the country that decides for the rest of the world and because of that they have more than the rest of the world and because of that they are envied by the rest of the world and because of that, there is strife. 18
The only way that the people of the world are going to begin to let go of some of that feeling of righteous hatred for the U.S.A. is if Americans stop flaunting their supremacy in the faces of those who desire it. This means two things to start with. First of all the spirit of harmony in business must be nurtured so that other countries feel that they have the respect of the U.S.A. Secondly, and more importantly, American foreign policy experts must embrace other countries’ rights to develop their own system of governance as they see fit. No country has the same history, culture, demographics, geography or political climate as the U.S.A. No country can make a carbon copy print of American democracy and set it in motion on their own terrain. When China was the great superpower of Asia in ancient times, they were called the Middle Kingdom because their influence made them the centre of the world as people knew and understood it. New ideas erupted from China. Artistic endeavour flourished in the fertile grounds of Chinese thought. China simply had the most advanced thinking in various arenas and furthermore urged that thought forward. Despite the fact that they, like America today, had this stronghold, they did not venture out to impose their views on their neighboring countries. They were thrilled to provide instruction to envoys that would come from far off with the desire for new light in thought. But it was up to those who returned to their home countries to do with that perspective what they would. It was for them to decide how this could help their country. The Chinese were not so arrogant to think that because something had worked for them that it would also work for another country in the same way. Since the Cold War ended it has seemed that Might was Right. History has continually tried to persuade us that, while this option seems infallible, it is not going to have the lasting effects that those employing it had originally hoped. It will lead to more and more people trying to prove that Might is Right and then we have to look back to A and B again. The level of hostility that we wade through on a day to day basis must be damaging to our health. This constant fear that someone is going to explode something somewhere and the next World War will rear its ugly head with explosive force, destroying all we had worked for, can only be self-fulfilling unless we act now. The tide of harmony has begun to gain currency. People around the world are starting to see the value in trying to empathize with those, who, we are told are the enemy, because they realize that the problems are not generally the problems of the people that they affect, but the problems of those in power. Those with everything enter these frays for their own personal gain, while the people affected have nothing. Harmony brings positive qualities to everyone without having to sacrifice human life. This is not to say that there is no sacrifice in harmony, there is. 19
The sacrifice of not maintaining rigid standards about exactly how one’s life is carried out on a day-to-day basis, without thinking about how those actions will impact on each and every person on the planet. That is the main sacrifice that needs to be made in order for there to be true harmony. Harmony begins with an all-encompassing global human awareness. It is in that awareness that there is potential for people of the world to advance to a new stage of living in the Harmony Renaissance. [ 1] p 234 Lao Zi, trans. Wang Keping. The Classic of the Dao.

WORLD HARMONY DIPLOMACY VERSUS POWER DIPLOMACY
By Francis C. W. Fung, PH.D.
World Harmony Organization (WHO) pursues world harmony renaissance by seeking truth. Our principle and goal deems it necessary to advocate world harmony diplomacy by initiating Harmony Diplomacy Watch. In this spirit we began with articles entitled “Harmony Diplomacy Essential for World Development”, “Harmony Diplomacy in Work” and “It is Important to Cover Good Examples of Harmony Diplomacy.” In this tradition, we continue our entrusted mission to compare and contrast innovative, influential and state of the art theories on world diplomacy. http://www.worldharmonyforum.blogspot.com America as a young, dynamic, and endowed nation earned its place as the leader of world democracy during and immediately after the Cold War. The scope of success of America Cold War diplomacy has no parallel in human history, in part due to the competitiveness of American economic system but also largely brought about by execution of Power Diplomacy made possible by the largest economy and the most powerful military. The after effects of America winning the Cold War remained today, good or bad. The good is that the world has enjoyed unprecedented prosperity due to relative peace and stability. On the other hand the American public is constantly being reminded by their media and government that we are destined to be the leader of the world because God is on our side. This self defeating arrogance is in contrast to the universal harmony principle that the more powerful we are, the more we need humility. The damaging consequence of deviating from this all encompassing truism is evident by the dilemma of our embroiled involvement in unilateral Iraqi war. As a result of continuing our Cold War Power Diplomacy we have too often infringed on the dignity of many disadvantaged nations in the world. After 9/11 we declared war against terrorism and were eager to launch the unilateral war on Iraq without giving diplomacy a chance. Our pride blinded us from seeing the need of dignity by the poor and disadvantaged. We have become immune to other nation’s needs for development. Instead from our ethnocentric perspective, we continue to be critical of other striving nation’s efforts to modernize. This lack of understanding of other nation’s loss of dignity and desperate need of modernization did not go without notice by America’s elite, 21
experienced in foreign policy. In fact the extensive survey conducted by Pew Research Center involving 45,239 people and 46 nations from April 6 to May 29,2007 found majorities in many countries reject the main planks of current U.S. foreign policy and express dictates for American style democracy. According to the polled results, there is a wide spread perception that the U.S. acts unilaterally in making international policy decisions. And majorities in most every country polled, including 97 percent in France, 80 percent in Argentina, and 75 percent in Lebanon, said the United States promoted democracy mostly where it served U.S. interests. This, according to Pew, helps explain why U.S. ideas about democracy are rejected by vast numbers around the globe. Caution for change to a softer and more understanding American world diplomacy is being sounded in unison by many notable and seasoned formal high ranking diplomats such as Kissinger, Brezezinski, Albright and Slaughter. New theories such as Faith Diplomacy, Value Diplomacy and Diplomacy by Deeds are being advanced, (for reference please see my afore mentioned papers on world harmony diplomacy.) In today’s multilateral world, Power Diplomacy as preached by the bygone wisdom of “speak softly and carry a big stick” has lost most of its relevance. The unpopular unilateral Iraq War makes it clear that “speak loudly and carry a big stick" as practiced by the present administration has not worked so far either. In fact there are signs that Harmony Diplomacy is on the rise, witnessed by the softening of U.S. position in the Sixth Party denuclearization talk (see “Harmony Diplomacy in Work” http://www.worldharmonyforum.blogspot.com.) On the other hand, in catering to the interest of the uninformed and proud American public, the theme of Power Diplomacy is still echoed among U.S. 2008 presidential candidates. In a July/August 2007 Foreign Affairs Journal article titled “Renewing American Leadership”, fore running U.S. Democratic Party presidential candidate, Barack Obama expounded Power Diplomacy as key U.S. foreign policy to revive American leadership. The central theme of Power Diplomacy, instead of dialogue and mutual understanding, is American leadership. The truth is that commerce and cultural exchange will increase understanding not American leadership. Gradual increase of understanding will enhance trust. Trust will lead to harmony. This is the essence of Harmony Diplomacy. According to Obama “we must harness American power to reinvigorate American diplomacy. Tough minded diplomacy backed by the whole range of instruments of American power—political, economic, and military—could bring success even when dealing with long standing adversaries such as Iran and Syria.” Notice the perennial emphasis of 22
“success against our adversaries” instead of dialogue and win-win mutual development. The presumption that those who disagree are enemies, will surely not win us friends. In contrast, Harmony Diplomacy espouses mutual development between any two nations powerful or weak, developed or developing, rich or poor. As demonstrated by my article “Harmony Diplomacy in Work” misunderstanding and distrust between U.S.-China can only be resolved by dialogue through discussion of commonality. Confrontation and threat will only extend animosity as exemplified by prolonged U.S. - Cuban and U.S. - Iran mutual accusations with shouting matches that are becoming permanent features of U.S. Power Diplomacy. Through out Obama’s foreign policy exposition, words such as “power, pushing, pressure, aggressive, tough, tough minded, American leadership and instrument of power” are used freely. Words such as dialogue, mutual understanding, trust, tolerance are noticeably absent. Instead, proud of our past Cold War confrontational expertise, the intensity of cold war diplomacy is called on to deal with a small band of extreme radicals. The war on terror advocated by Bush will certainly become an over kill that will unsettle world diplomacy for years to come. The world certainly can not afford to have another debilitating cold war. The over enthusiastic inclination to use confrontation and ever increasing force without consideration of neutralizing force with dynamic balance, totally neglects the first principle strategy in counter terrorism or any warfare for that matter. Dynamic balance of harmony is more fluid like in nature. Without the consideration of humility, the narrowly defined American value is trumpeted as a cure all for world ills. To quote directly from Obama's essay, “I will show the world that America remains true to its founding values. We lead not only for ourselves but also for the common good.” On self reflection we must admit that some of our values great as they are cannot avoid being dated, unilateral and ethnocentric. They have not been keeping up with the multilateral world development. For the future world, Power Diplomacy must gradually evolve towards Harmon Diplomacy by accepting and expanding to more universal values as expounded in Harmony Diplomacy Watch essays. Despite the claim to the contrary, wisdom and humility have no place for self glorification. Yet we are told “I believe the American people will be eager to see America lead again. — It is time for a new generation to tell the next great American story----this was the time we defeated global terrorists and brought opportunity to forgotten corners of the world.” The final conclusion is the crowning moment for Obama. “This is our moment to renew the trust and faith of our people—and all people—in an America that battles immediate evils, promotes ultimate 23
good, and leads the world once more.” Humility may be the only single most effective reflection to restore others lost of dignity due to our past trespasses. Can we Americans be any more unilateral and presumptive in our own self glorification? We can easily see our failings through following selections of essays on Harmony Diplomacy by contrast to our aggrandized proclamations, in tone and reason. Following is an excerpt of a recent article by WHO World Harmony Diplomacy Watch quoting the concluding statements of the recent Asia-Europe Meeting . The spirit of harmony in this article is in strong contrast to the prevalent American Power Diplomacy to renew American leadership. In the article, Dialogue, Mutual Understanding, Commonality and Tolerance are emphasized. In the pursue of Harmony Diplomacy, it is important to pursue mutual understanding through dialogue and harmony through tolerance. A harmonious future for Asia and Europe hinges on wisdom that can steer the course of their interactions. So said delegates at the third annual Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) Interfaith Dialogue, which wrapped up June 23, 2007 in Nanjing, capital of East China's Jiangsu Province. In the Nanjing Statement, issued at the conclusion of the event, participants from the two continents vowed to deepen and broaden the dialogue process to foster a peaceful and harmonious partnership. Cui Tian Kai, assistant minister of foreign affairs of China said at a joint news conference with Senator Gianni Vernetti, undersecretary of state at the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Building on the achievements of the first two meetings, in Bali in 2005 and Cyprus in 2006, the twoday dialogue co-hosted by China and Italy served as a platform for religious and political leaders and academics to address their diversity and commonality in faiths and deliberate on further tapping the potential of interfaith talks in enhancing mutual understanding in an era of globalization, he said. "In Chinese culture, harmony is underpinned by diversity. Seeking harmony while acknowledging differences means that a country or an ethnic group, while preserving its own cultural heritage, should be open and tolerant to other civilizations," In a world wrought with uncertainties, it is vital to pursue mutual understanding through dialogue, and achieve harmony through tolerance, he said. If nations collide because of different values, globalization may be giving a new spin to the multiple values involved in international relations. From the dim past to the present, international relations could be categorized as relations of war and peace - nations clashing over values. This approach does not project a bright future for relations among states as it doesn't provide a paradigm for the peaceful co-existence of different value systems. 24
A way to avoid conflict has long been sought. A seemingly uncomplicated approach is for nations to share peace and prosperity through dialogue and tolerance. The recipe of dialogue entails not imposing ones values or faith on others. It involves respecting different peoples' treasured values and beliefs. It is necessary to understand and appreciate, or at least tolerate, different cultures and religions. The ASEM (Asia-Europe Meeting) Interfaith Dialogue, under the framework of the Asia-Europe Summit, is just such a platform. It brings nations together from two continents to address their diversity and commonality in faith and culture, with the hope of convergence for the sake of humanity. Following is an excerpt of a recent article by WHO World Harmony Diplomacy Watch quoting People’s Daily. The spirit of harmony in this article is also in strong contrast to the prevalent American Power Diplomacy to renew American leadership as discussed previously. The title of the original speech is China's Diplomacy: Pursuing Balance to Reach Harmony. President Hu Jintao made the speech on China's new foreign policy of building a harmonious world at the United Nations Summit marking the 60th anniversary of the establishment of the world body. His words received wide approval and the policy is thought fruitful in 2005. The policy helped to lift China's international status, fundamentally because of its pursuit of balance. That is, to balance national development against international responsibilities, economic benefits against political and security interests, relations with world powers against those with various countries, and reform against the maintenance of world order. We should build a harmonious world by aiming at "performing great deeds". Although a developing country, China is a rising big nation. Change in international environment casts a direct impact on China's rise, and the country will suffer from its negative effects if she doesn't take the initiative to push it towards a more harmonious direction. Such a pro-active approach will benefit both the international environment of China and the advancement of the whole world. In the spirit of "performing great deeds" China has decided to take responsibilities of a big nation. During his meeting with President Bush, President Hu said explicitly that the China-US cooperation will be on global scale. We should build a harmonious world by taking the overall national interest as a starting point. Both national and international interests are multi-faceted, and different interest claims can clash. For example, globalization can raise economic efficiency, but also worsen the wealth gap and interest conflicts at home and abroad. To build a harmonious world, we must, on top of economic interests, give due consideration to political interests such as China's image, influence and status on the 25
international arena. We should build a harmonious world by following the policy of a greater neighborhood diplomacy. To the end of a harmonious world we must maintain friendly ties with as many countries as possible, so we should avoid sacrificing relations with other countries for the sake of stable Sino-US ties. We should build a harmonious world in the principle of gradualness. In proposing such a long-term objective, China has no intention to reach it in one step. China fully understands the difficulty in constructing a harmonious world under anarchy, so she stressed on safeguarding UN authority and conducting necessary reforms. To reshape the world order is a permanent task, and as time changes the old international order is for sure to be replaced by a new one. To ensure peace and order during such a course, China believes that reforms should be carried out in a measured, cautious way based on the current world order, so that the reforms can benefit the greatest majority of world countries.
ASIA-EUROPE MEETING INTERFAITH DIALOGUE
Interfaith Dialogue Concludes in Nanjing A harmonious future for Asia and Europe hinges on wisdom that can steer the course of their interactions. So said delegates at the third annual Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) Interfaith Dialogue, which wrapped up yesterday in Nanjing, capital of East China's Jiangsu Province. In the Nanjing Statement, issued at the conclusion of the event, participants from the two continents vowed to deepen and broaden the dialogue process to foster a peaceful and harmonious partnership, Cui Tian Kai, assistant minister of foreign affairs of China said at a joint news conference with Senator Gianni Vernetti, undersecretary of state at the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Building on the achievements of the first two meetings, in Bali in 2005 and Cyprus in 2006, the two-day dialogue co-hosted by China and Italy served as a platform for religious and political leaders and academics to address their diversity and commonality in faiths and deliberate on further tapping the potential of interfaith talks in enhancing mutual understanding in an era of globalization, he said. China adheres to the policy of guaranteeing the freedom of religious belief, and acknowledged the active role religion plays in building a harmonious society, he said. It has been proved by history that faith is an objective reality, it can neither be imposed nor deprived, Ye Xiaowen, Minister of China's State Administration for Religious Affairs said at the closing ceremony. "In Chinese culture, harmony is underpinned by diversity. Seeking harmony while acknowledging differences means that a country or an ethnic group, while preserving its own cultural heritage, should be open and tolerant to other civilizations," Ye said. In a world wrought with uncertainties, it is vital to pursue mutual understanding through dialogue, and achieve harmony through tolerance, he said. The Fourth ASEM Interfaith Dialogue will be co-hosted by the Netherlands and Thailand next year in Amsterdam. 27

SECRETS OF CHINESE WORDS AND SAYINGS: ANCIENT WISDOM FOR TODAYTHE IMPORTANCE OF CHINESE LANGUAGE TO MODERN SUCCESS
BY FRANCIS C. W. FUNG, PH.D. The importance of learning the Chinese language is not limited to the fact that almost one fourth of the world’s population, in East and South Asia and the rest of the world use it wholly or partly. Neither is the newly discovered importance of Chinese language in world commerce and world affairs. Apart from its uniquely beautiful calligraphy the Chinese language obviously also has inherent world cultural significance. Most of all to the author, the Chinese nation owes its repute as a nation of wisdom to the innovative cultural formation of its language. This I will venture to elaborate in this announcement. Learning the distinctly spatial Chinese words will expand the mental capacity of citizens of the world who speak native phonetic tongues, increasing their capacities for different types of intelligence. Added to this is the cultural wisdom embedded in the formation of the characters, and in the meaning of Chinese sayings. As most of the major languages of the word are phonetic, a bilingual person who also speaks Chinese will exercise different parts of his brain in their daily undertakings. The Chinese nation with its continuous and uninterrupted history of 5000 years stands out among ancient nations of the world. Its language is early and being non-phonetic is also unique among world languages. Chinese pictographs or characters were discovered as early as 3000 years ago and predated oracle bones. The Chinese characters were created by diverse ingenious and imaginative ways throughout its long history. It is a collective treasure of wisdom and art by design. Different from the world’s major phonetic languages, the Chinese language consists of a system of more than 5000 basic characters instead of a limited number of letters in an alphabet. This larger system of basic characters at one hand presents a challenge to non native learners at the outset but it also renders Chinese a language of wisdom as we shall soon realize. From this creatively crafted system of basic characters, new words, two- word“nomenclatures” and four- word- “ Chinese sayings” (CHENG YU) are innovatively created to suit evolution of times. For example the word commonly meaning patience (REN) is the character knife edge (REN) held above the character heart (XIN). The world martial (WU) is formed by the character stop (ZI) and the character weapon (GE). The word war (ZAN) is composed by two parts (DAN) and (GE) meaning unilateral and weapon. The term crisis is formed by the two words meaning danger and opportunity (WEI JI) simultaneously. The term harmony is made up of two words each of two characters ( HE XIE) together they mean content and consensus. Thus the words patience, martial, crisis and harmony impart deeper wisdom above mere meaning for the common use of the words. This continuing development has persisted without major disruption for 5000 years. A well learned Chinese shows his pedigree by frequent use of these cultural related nomenclatures and other famous sayings as explained in the following. Thus the Chinese language incorporates the richness of the Chinese historical development and culture. 29
There are many modern advantages to the Chinese language. The modern Japanese and Korean languages evolved from heavy dependence of Chinese words into phonetic languages during recent history. Because of the usefulness and versatility of the Chinese characters, today many educated Japanese and Koreans read Chinese characters and still prefer not to totally divorce from the use of Chinese words. Most of all, the Chinese language is attractive to those well heeled in the wisdom and cultural content of the innovative words, nomenclatures and famous sayings mentioned previously. Individual Chinese characters are monosyllabic, and the four character sayings which embody Chinese wisdom are as short and as easy to learn and memorize as acronyms in English. These acronyms like simple wisdom phrases are handed down through generations and become the cumulative reservoir of Chinese cultural jewels with deep meaning. Two most well known four word idioms are (Zhi Ji Zhi Bi, Bai Zhan Bai Sheng), together they mean “know thyself and know thy enemy, hundred battles hundred victories.” This has come to be one of the utmost important military strategies of all time. Because it is simple and easy to remember like an eight letter acronym, even Chinese kids know it by heart. The other modern advantages of the Chinese language are many. Chinese language is concise and compact. A similar length book in Chinese will take half the space of a phonetic language book. Because of its compact pictographs, Chinese writing lends itself readily for speed reading. As a bilingual person of 50 years and receiving most of my education in America, I can read Chinese books much faster than English books. This makes it significantly less of a chore to go through long documents in Chinese than English. Chinese verbal commands are more limited in sounds, because the basic system of characters are finite in number so are Chinese words. English alphabets may be only twenty six but the sounds of phonetic English words are infinite. Thus the first fully functional verbal input computer most likely will be Chinese. The first Chinese language input computer is well advanced is well on its way to commercialization. This will eliminate the key board input disadvantage of Chinese language computer once and for all. Although current key board input Chinese language computers are reasonably efficient, the verbal input Chinese language computer may prove to be even more efficient and easy to use. As a bilingual person practicing a wide range of disciplines of study from physical sciences to social sciences, from commerce to international affairs I have discovered a curious phenomenon. Over the years I noticed that many of my Chinese associates and myself are more adept in picking up new disciplines of studies. It also seems rather easy for Chinese to practice new discipline in late life. My personal career of over 50 years has included many vastly different fields and professions. The reason may be the threshold of crossing between various disciplines, is lower in Chinese language. Or Chinese culture is a more flexible and harmonious from aeronautics to world affairs. To reach definitive conclusion on this interesting premise will require more detail analysis on the possibilities of the Chinese language and the Chinese learning attitude. One obvious observation that surfaces is the fact that Chinese nomenclatures in different 30
disciplines are more standardized because the meaning of the common pictographs that makes the different jargons of the trades. In the English language jargons, it is easy to deliberately create different new jargons for different trades. By nature of the phonetic language infinite number of words with different sounds can be created by combination and permutation of the 26 alphabets. This does not necessarily make cross discipline studies any easier. Because the Chinese system of basic characters is finite, even when the Chinese nomenclatures appear to be different in each discipline the pictographs will give away its intended meaning. The beauty of the Chinese pictograph language system as opposed to the phonetic system most of the world uses, is its relative simplicity. Once a Chinese learner knows a relatively small sample of pictographs he is less likely to need the dictionary when pursuing a new discipline. This significantly lowers the threshold of cross discipline studies and communications. This introductory announcement of the secrets of the Chinese words and sayings is an excerpt of a compilation of the wisdom of ancient Chinese language for modern success. This new compilation entitled “Secrets of Chinese Words and Sayings: Ancient Wisdom for Success Today” goes beyond the usual writings on Chinese wisdom for success. The compilation goes into the secret roots of the Chinese words and language itself beyond the mere scope of Chinese ancient philosophical and military wisdom in print. We welcome comments and contributions on Chinese ancient wisdom and the modern importance of the Chinese language from our interested readers.
Letter to David Wells, Director of KPCB
Dear David, Since our discussion yesterday I wish to add that our multipurpose VPTG electric generator has certain salient features that may easily escape a casual observer at first. With its vertical axis turbine and venturi housing it is an enhanced multipurpose power turbine generator not unlike a converted power turbine generator from gas turbine jet engine. This was the technology I transferred from Cooper- Rolls Royce to China during late 1980's. It can be functional where the conventional wind generator may not. I will explain further. Its vertical axis turbine can be multistage to reduce the frontal blade dimension a conventional wind turbine takes. The turbine is located at the venturi housing neck, thus the wind velocity is many times increased by the Bernoulli principle. The bottom of the enlarged housing with entry portholes collect wind from all directions. The vertical tower design can combine buoyancy effect with the wind energy. Thus as an appropriate technology for rural and developing areas the wind that is captured in the lower venturi housing can be further heated by solar power, geothermal or waste at heat the bottom of the venturi housing. Of course because of the above many features it can also be a muti-purpose electric generator when the wind velocity happened to be low or not available because of seasonal changes. Another words it can work as a waste, solar or geothermal heat electric generator when there is no wind. Solar collectors can be use to heat the bottom of our venturi housing do generate additional draft for power. In some remote areas agriculture waste can be burned in the front burner as shown in my patent design drawings. This way we have a bonafide low tech power turbine for electricity generation. If cow dung is used and acceptable in the dessert for a portable device, so be it. I am including my short summary and the Chinese translation below to illustrate the point that my enhanced ecology inventions have additional features that may not be obvious by casual observation. I too am beginning to realize the growing multi-facet features of my three unique, innovative and versatile green energy electric inventions. Thank you for your patience and consideration in working with me. Best Wishes, Francis
OUR ENHANCED ECOLOGY MINDED RENEWABLE ENERGY INVENTIONS
To put it in a meaningful way, I can venture to say that my inventions are the cumulative experience and wisdom of many years and many partners in appropriate renewable energy development with enhanced environmental considerations.. The fact that the inventions were submitted for patent applications recently by me only means that the awareness to harmonize with nature has finally come of age be lately. Our three green energy inventions include the use of atmospheric, geothermal, hydro, solar, wave, wind and waste heat energies for electric generation. Our inventions are low cost, easy to manufacture and suited for rural and developing world applications. In each case, in the case of VPTG (an all in one venturi 360 degree VAT turbine that can harness atmospheric, wind, geothermal and waste heat energy), HACG (hydraulic compressed air power electric generator) and AWEG (an induced wave power electric generator powered by alternate gravity and buoyancy forces), we minimize the perturbation of nature compared to conventional way of using renewable energies. The VPTG VAT turbine is multidimensional compared to uni- direction. The VPTG can funnel wind from the bottom upwards along the venturi tube to the throat area for maximum power utilization. My inventions can be readily scaled up or down to suit community electricity use. We use natural environments without the need to build elaborate civil structures. In all cases we also minimize the use of precious space. Think about the implications. For conventional wave electric generators their size is determined by the length of the natural wave in each locality. Our AWEG can be scaled up and down independent of the wave length of the body water. We induce the waves according to our design (note the word induce). In a close system, using cryogenic fluid as working media, the AWEG invention is uniquely suitable as a superconducting electric generator. The beauty of super conducting phenomenon is that large amount of electricity can be generated in small cylindrical spaces. For Julia, Lin, and Leon who have heard my inventions presentation many times over, most likely appreciate the sweeping statement above. For those who have not heard my presentations often I will be patient. Lin can you render above statement into Chinese that will convey our noble intent to the Chinese speakers also? Appreciate it.

OUR VPTG WIND ELECTRIC GENERATOR DOES NOT KILL BIRDS, OUR HACG HYDRO POWER ELECTRIC GENERATOR DOES NOT DESTROY MARINE BIOLOGY AND MORE
Dear David, Per Kleiner Perkins' request I am high lighting important points of our GENEI Inc Green energy inventions, that are selling points for your investors and ecology minded backers. From ecology consideration, because of the MPC Nano material housing has air inlet screens, our multipurpose VPTG wind electric generator does not kill birds. From the same consideration, our HACG hydro power electric generator does not destroy marine biology. We use the hydro power indirectly. The water is just diverted through our HACG device. Only the isothermally compressed air goes through our air turbines for power generation or refrigeration. The water that goes through our HACG device is also oxygenated because part of the air bubbles entrapped remains in the water. In another word, the tail water coming out of our HACG electric generator is oxygenated and unheated by the turbine. Not only marine biology is not destroyed, our tail water is good for marine life. Our IWEG induced wave electric generator creates its own wave! There is no need for any civil engineering construction to interfere with the body water. Since our discussion yesterday, I wish to add that our multipurpose VPTG electric generator has certain salient features that may easily escape a casual observer at first. With its vertical axis turbine and venturi housing it is an enhanced multipurpose power turbine generator not unlike a converted power turbine generator from gas turbine jet engine. This was the technology I transferred from CooperRolls Royce to China during late 1980's. It can be functional where the conventional wind generator may not. I will explain further. Its vertical axis turbine can be multistage to reduce the frontal blade dimension a conventional wind turbine takes. The turbine is located at the venturi housing neck, thus the wind velocity is many times increased by the Bernoulli principle. The bottom of the enlarged housing with entry portholes collect wind from all directions The 34
vertical tower design can combine buoyancy effect with the wind energy. Thus as an appropriate technology for rural and developing areas the wind that is captured in the lower venturi housing can be further heated by solar power, geothermal or waste at heat the bottom of the venturi housing. Of course because of the above many features it can also be a mutipurpose electric generator when the wind velocity happened to be low or not available because of seasonal changes. Another words it can work as a waste, solar or geothermal heat electric generator when there is no wind. Solar collectors can be use to heat the bottom of our venturi housing do generate additional draft for power. In some remote areas agriculture waste can be burned in the front burner as shown in my patent design drawings. This way we have a bonafide low tech power turbine for electricity generation. If cow dung is used and acceptable in the dessert for a portable device, so be it. For your convenience I am including my short summary and the new Chinese translation below to further illustrate the above point that our enhanced ecology inventions have additional features that may not be obvious by casual observation. I too am beginning to realize the growing multi-facet features of my three unique, innovative and versatile green energy electric inventions. Thank you for your warm support and consideration in working with me. Best Wishes, Francis

CHINA IS A POWER UNSTOPPABLE
Author: FARZAM KAMALABADI 2003-1-20
On the threshold of the new century, the steady development of healthy US-China relations will prove to be a decisive factor in determining the nature of the 21st century and the eventual emergence and long-term settlement of a positive international order. On the other hand, the piling up of unwarranted mistrust and unjustified worries stemming from misunderstandings and ignorance will cause a more turbulent period in the checkered history of the new world order, posing a yet more perilous menace to the world community than in previous centuries. But the solid foundation for nurturing positive US-China relations can only be erected by a correct understanding of the forces and processes at work which are inevitably bringing China fully into the world arena for the first time in history. China has to be seen as the only nation whose citizens rarely came into direct contact with the outside world during the entire course of its continuous 5,000 years of civilization prior to the initiation of the reform and opening-up policies. Over 98 percent of the population had never met the people of the Western nations. Such a unique continued isolation until recent years, so unnoticed and easily ignored by the people of the Western world, has implications. This position, on the one hand, had made China for many years a non-progressive, insular and introverted society. Its peculiarities and characteristics are not readily understood by the Western world. On the other hand, China has developed a unique civilization with a distinct world outlook, philosophy, mind-set, culture, value system, medical theories and practices and its own definitions of spirituality. This makes it potentially capable of contributing to the world society. China's reform and opening-up policies, instituted gradually over the last two decades, therefore, need to be put in perspective and understood in the light of the macro world processes shaping and reshaping the destinies of the whole of humankind. China's opening up, reform and development can be understood as not instigated and orchestrated merely by individual, far-sighted leaders. It is more correct to understand the change as the flowering of the collective soul of China coinciding with the early stages of the internationalization of the planet, a new process which has only gathered momentum in the last century. It is the fulfilling of the sacred destiny of a major contributor of world civilization, as embodied in the release of long-withheld latent psychological powers, desires, and needs of the aggregate population of such a nation, but voiced by the far-sighted new leaders of New China representing and vocalizing such hitherto temporarily checked and unvoiced cries. The psychological powers of a once progressive and powerful nation have been stretched and held in captivity and suspense for a few centuries, and the timing of the quick release has meant a far reaching and fast moving arrow. Such a marvelous colossal macro process can only find its parallel in the modern world history in the events leading to the appearance of the Renaissance in Europe and the discovery of the North American Continent. 47
If correctly understood as representing massive macro processes shaping and reordering world structures, then the implications of the recent attempts, albeit laden with challenges and repeated pitfalls, of the regeneration of China, will be that it is an unstoppable torrential current which will tear down whatever internal or external forces that, however unwittingly, may be blocking its path or hoping to contain it. Once rightfully understood as the release of the massive hidden and latent mental forces of the population of an entire nation, albeit itself as yet mostly unconscious, in fulfilling its contributory destiny to the creation of a peaceful New World Order, then it will be known that no force, internal or external, can check or revert this fast-advancing process. "The lid is off the top of China, and no one can put it back," says Madam Rabbani, the late distinguished leader of the Baha'i World Community (statement made in 1989-90). The phenomenon of the emergence of China into the world community, therefore, should be welcomed with jubilation. The Western world must come to terms with such unparalleled world processes, must rightfully interpret its purport on the threshold of the coming of age of the world of humanity at the juncture of the new millennium, must embrace the constructive contributions it will entail, and must make room and open appropriate space for China to assume its rightful peaceful leadership role in the New World Order. Any uninformed and conservative member of the Western world who, faced with the unbound and unleashed forces of world civilization, feels threatened and fights against it, will sooner or later find their feeble efforts exhausted, and will in the process, have become the very source of instability. On the contrary, the entire West should at once, wholeheartedly, with heartfelt emotions and with open arms, embrace China and welcome its leadership participation in the new world on the occasion of the new age. Such a spontaneous and wide action will ensure a peaceful world order in which a China and Western world, neither threatened nor threatening, will have joined hands in complimentary roles to advance the cause of the progress of civilization.

LETTER TO FARZAM
Farzam, I have returned San Francisco. I read the book "China's Peace Theories" published by your generous support. The content and scope is excellent. I read it with a great deal of resonance and feeling. Though the title is peace, when it comes to quotations of Confucius and Lao Zi a lot of the original concept is harmony. This is quite understandable because harmony is the essence of Chinese ancient culture. Harmony also has a much broader and contemporary meaning. As my wife, another American China expert, said. That is why I am writing about harmony renaissance. Reviving Chinese peace and harmony ancient culture will enhance the rightful image of China that has been overshadowed by Western media, particularly the Strong U.S. media projection of American image. You and I are the very few noted American personality that have achieved worldwide recognition by our writing. My position on harmony renaissance is widely published on the Internet. I am grateful to providence, your position on China's rise is peaceful and not a threat to the world is well received and recognized by the highest level of Chinese leadership. I have published over 80 essays and three books on harmony renaissance. I will ship you 100 copies of each of my books. When you Google harmony renaissance, harmony consensus and harmony diplomacy my writings are top listed and second to none on the first page. My first book "China’s Harmony Renaissance: What the Must Know" calls for world attention to China's revival of ancient harmony culture. It is the logical and contemporary harmony writing following the trail set by your book "China's Peace Theories" in presenting China in the rightful perspective. That is why my essays, as your peace essays and book, are well recognized by the Chinese media. Mine are also published by Xinhuanet, Chinanet and People's Daily Net, to name a few. I have asked our mutual friend, Eileen Chan to deliver to you ASAP a copy of each of my first two books by hand. Eileen Chen and Lin Guang Qian, noted Chinese translator on his own, are helping me to translate my first book into Chinese. As you know all my books on harmony renaissance are in English. I will have the Chinese version of my first book ready for presentation to the inner circle of highest Chinese leaders, when you arrange the World Harmony Organization visit to Beijing during May 2008. I will also bring with me the 1988 vintage calligraphy by one of the most renowned artist Liu Hai Su. As I mentioned in my previous email Mr. Liu wrote "The Most Great Peace Will Surely Come" for our Peace painting exhibition 1988 by our commission. It can be an announcement of the coming of he Harmonious World from the perspective of the inevitable unity in diversity multilateral world. I am setting up GENEI (Green Energy Inventions Depository) both in the U.S. and Hong Kong by your understanding with me. You will also be my co founder. The other parties will be a small group of American friends who also believe in harmony Renaissance. They will come in as one party with small equity position. You and I will remain as the 49
principle founder of the original core group. The other parties that will come in later may be the HK proto type team and Kleiner Perkins, the U.S. premium green energy VC associated with Al Gore. I will keep you informed of progress. Kindly acknowledge by return confirming email since this is the first email from the U.S. I want to make sure our U.S. email communication is set up without any hitch. My warmest wishes to your wife and you children. Mr. Liu Xi Gui also conveys his regards. May you have the best of all green energy choices. Francis C. W.

WORLD HARMONY RENAISSANCE IN 21ST CENTURY
LETTER TO PAN KI-MOON, SECRETARY GENERAL OF U.N., AL GORE OF KLEINER PERKINS, FARZAM KAMALABADI OF FUTURE TRENDS, JONATHAN SUN OF THE SUN GROUP, FRANK LIU SPOKESPERSON OF U.N. FORUM Dear Honorary Colleagues, Harmony is the most comprehensive universal common value. It owns its origin from observation of nature and encompasses the fundamental principles of all human activities and interrelations. It evolved from human need to harmonize with nature to the broadest possible study of diverse human disciplines, including ecology, philosophy, religion, inner peace, family unity, governance systems and international relations. Harmony as a science is the order of the universe and nature's order. That is why the world still exists after billion and billion years of evolution. The universe is unending because of harmony. In today's confronting and unilateral world, Harmony Renaissance cannot be timelier to assure sustainable development. Harmony principles must be perceived as fluid- like dynamic balance of contending forces. The best governance system for any developing nation is its own harmony system, developed from within while interacting with globalization. Peace without harmony can at best be transient. Harmony is an ideal, renaissance gives it life. Mutual development, harmony development is the inevitable tide and future reality of mankind.
WORLD HARMONY RENAISSANCE CENTERS Harmony belongs to the world. World Harmony Organization (WHO) invites your participation to pursue World Harmony Renaissance by establishing World Harmony Renaissance Centers (WHRC) and World Harmony Institutes (WHI) at promising and up and coming locations. We are dedicated to initiate World Harmony Renaissance Symposiums, World Harmony Cultural Festivals, World Harmony Preamble and Declaration, World Harmony Ambassadors and Volunteers Programs. The universe of possible studies opened up by Harmony Renaissance is unending and without limit. It is the ongoing progression of human civilization. It invites universal participation. European Renaissance since the Age of Enlightenment has brought us Freedom, Democracy and modern science. Its momentum of creative energy is still continuing after 400 years. Harmony Renaissance is the next wave of creative energy that humans have been waiting for. It will bring us to the next higher level of human accomplishment, surpassing the achievements of European Renaissance. Our humble efforts to initiate Harmony Renaissance are only at the beginning. We invite worldwide participation. Your participation can be very valuable to human progress. We look forward to your inquiry and contribution to worldwide WORLD HARMONY RENAISSANCE CENTERS and related world harmony undertakings. UNITED NATIONS AND GREEN ENERGY RENEWAL United Nations under our current secretary general, Pan Ki-Moon has announced his mission to pursuit harmony. A pressing task is to establish an Eastern U N headquarters, possibly in China to facilitate East and West cultural exchange. This can only be accomplished through the establishment of WHRC and WHI worldwide beginning from U N headquarter to be built. From there world harmony ambassadors can be appointed and world harmony volunteers can be first trained to spread harmony teaching and harmony projects. These worthwhile activities are aimed to pursuit East- West and North-South dialogues, cultural exchanges which are essential for world understanding and harmony. It is befitting U N charter for U N to play an important role in hastening worldwide green energy renewal to advert the catastrophic global climate change that we are facing. The honorable Al Gore and United Nations Staff has begun the admirable study on climate change and rightfully deserve the Nobel peace prize. We can invite scientists and scholars to the U N WHRC to work on priority tasks of appropriate green energy inventions and their implementation feasibility. Their collective studies and accomplishments can then be transferred to various Harmony Cities for demonstration and commercialization. U N AND WORLDWIDE HARMONY CITIES
The research and feasibility study results on green energy inventions from worldwide WHRC can be transferred to all nations free of charge for implementation at various selected Harmony Cities for demonstration and commercialization. Each WHRC will be located where the talent and resources are most available. When feasibility and suitability are proven, manufacturing and mass production can be carried out for world wide use to replace conventional hydro-carbon energy production to reduce pollution. Harmony Cities can be built around the world under the auspicious of U N. Each harmony cities will have its own WHRC and WHI under the auspicious of U N or each government with coordination by U N to focus on major undertakings such as harmony practice and harmony diplomacy research. There will be studies and training to accomplish multilateral cultural understanding that is conducive to harmony among nations and peace and understanding. The spirit of “Be proud we are citizens of the world and not citizens of one nation” will be fostered through Harmony Cities. After all we are all living in a global village. The first Harmony City have been proposed to be building in China by the collective efforts of Future Trends Organization, the Sun Group and Associates and World Harmony Organization. The idea of the first Harmony City to be built near Beijing has already received support by the Chinese leaders and U N. China already initiated her own harmony society and world harmony policy as witnessed by various articles widely reported and books on China’s harmony and world harmony renaissance by World Harmony Organization. Please visit www.amazon.com for books under the subject of harmony renaissance, harmony consensus and harmony diplomacy.

WORLD HARMONY ORGANIZATION
World Harmony Organization Launched in San Francisco
http://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 raise 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. Editor: Luan Shanglin
LETTER RECOMMENDING PROFESSOR FUNG TO BE KEYNOTE SPEAKER AT U N SPRING CULTURAL FESTIVAL
Dear Professor Fung, As spokesperson for Jewish Americans, I was delighted to receive your publication “World Harmony Renaissance” during Hanukah. Recently we also received recommendation and endorsement letters on your harmony renaissance theories. After our group deliberation we wish to invite you to be the keynote speaker at the “United Nations Spring Cultural Festival” on April 25th, 2008. Your topics could include your “World Harmony Renaissance” theories, “GENEI Green Energy Inventions Depository” and world new energy development. “World Harmony Renaissance” is the inevitable tide of world development. Such theory is the universal common value to resolve human conflicts that are facing us today. Already World Harmony Renaissance theory is beginning to resonate in the world. This inevitable tide will be the second wave of human renaissance, World Harmony Renaissance. We wish to be part of this tide of world peace and harmony. The essence of harmony is renouncing violence, advocating tolerance, acceptance, respect, equality, patience, forgiveness and humility. World Harmony Renaissance is the catalyst for world cultural exchange. In a multilateral world culture cannot just flow from the West to the East or the North to the South. Harmony is unity in diversity. It is the all inclusive bonding force. Harmony is the order of nature and the principle of the universe. We also learned that your theories published in a series of volumes on harmony renaissance, harmony consensus, and harmony diplomacy has reached the desk of Chairman Hu Jintao. As representative for Jewish Americans I earnestly wish that you will accept our invitation to be our keynote speaker at the seminar. Our group, Sun Group as investment banker, is also the project organizer for this event. We are responsible for the selection of outstanding influential speakers. We are much honored and proud that you can attend. As your theory expounds: The most great peace will surely come! Jay Rothstein First Day of Chinese New Year 2008.
HARMONY RENAISSANCE DECLARATION
HARMONY PREAMBLE In the East harmony as a social science theory was evolved from natural science observation by Lao Zi. Human in harmony with the universe is called Tian Ren He Yi. Einstein was also quoted as saying the order of nature is not accidental. Harmony is the order of nature. Harmony belongs to the World and to the Universe. WORLD HARMONY ORGANIZATION "HARMONY DECLARATION" Harmony is the highest common value. Renaissance is action. Together they have life. 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. From the very beginning, the Universe is created by the infinite invisible energy in the firmament. The invisible energy that created the universe can also be called DAO. Lao Zi 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." Lao Zi's harmony theory of universe is in unison with modern quantum physics. 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. World Harmony Organization Signers
