ManHo R&D Center is a search & research center that specializes in the investigation of man, nature, society and the universe based on principles and models from discoveries of valuable ancient esoteric practical ideas and techniques, notably, the Fourth Way.
It began as a 'Center for All Round Development' (CARD) way back in 1975 pioneered by the remarkable deceased Dr. Shamsher Singh for which Dr. Tan Man-Ho was a research disciple for about 15 years before both separated and moved along their own independent but similar directions.
After the establishment of ManHo Management Consultancy (MMC) in July 19, 1995 and after the death of Dr. Shamsher Singh, Dr. Tan Man-Ho decided to give this research movement a new name, and called it ManHo R&D Center (MRD). It was decided that MRD would function as a division of MMC as its inner center and guide for all activities of the whole ManHo enterprise. MRD would produce research works while the consulting wing would publish them. With the emergence of MMC as a consulting body, MRD took a new turn and added a new role in conducting business researches for MMC. In June 1997, MRD center adds a new research role in assisting St. Clements University groups' students achieve their research goals. With this new opportunity, MRD plans to enable serious students everywhere in the world to acquire formal recognition of their research works through St. Clements University group.
The mission of MRD is to provide a research environment and an organization for carrying out research works into the development of human faculties and harmony, his sociotechnocosmic phenoumenon and cosmic network based on the philosophy and practice of the real world-fourth way school of tri-centered advancement. The research activity is not specifically meant to developed a conscious wholesome being as in the Fourth Way work but rather to develop the research component of the human thinking faculty by conscious engagement of research activities of both the inside and the outside world, i.e. World 3 + World 2 and World 1 "objects".
The social mission of this stopinder is to provide a sociocosmic basis to enable a research function to operate and also to get it recognized.
It is active in recruiting small groups of high profile individuals (or associating with them) who would continue the research mission set forth by the pioneers -- G.I. Gurdjieff, P.D. Ouspensky, Kenneth Walker, Maurice Nicoll, J.G. Bennett, Shamsher Singh and other remarkable individuals.
MRD consists of voluntary high profile individuals who are sincerely dedicated to this unique cause of improving themselves, neighbors and organizations. The center is not obliged to bear the costs of any research nor exploits the benefits derived from the outcome of such research. Only the consulting wing functions in accordance with the principles of business.
The administrative philosophy of MRD, like that of FMC, is to give positive support without authoritative control for the unlimited surfacing of new dimensions in research development for each and every participant. Its administration would be very passively "docile" with almost no "hostility" to research and active only in coordinating and encouraging research resurfacing rather than leading and controlling it. By thinning down bureaucratic administration or "wall removing", the network of real men in the objective network are able to surface from their chains and take rightful command of their own sociocosmic "I AM".
Independent Voluntary Research
In line with an aspect of the philosophy of 'Views from the Real World' (Gurdjieff), all search and research activities and human creativities would be "without walls". Any contribution in the field of knowledge or invention that has materialized from conscious labor and intentional suffering would become a natural piece of evidence for humanity and its ultimate recognition.
The center is currently active in tracking and conducting research in the findings of the Fourth Way school & institutes, and seeking new frontiers and breakthroughs in this teaching. The current areas of research are mostly externalized processes to World 1 as a way to crystallize hydrogens to World 2 and 3 if possible. Lower density H-vibration deposited as a result of outward pointing of research activities is positively recognized in its own right and place in our inner body.
There is no fees or charges involved but funds from volunteers are much appreciated. Those who would like to provide research funds to MRD research can also contact Professor Dr. Tan Man-Ho. Email to : firstname.lastname@example.org
Research projects under the directives of ManHo R&D Center which are also accepted and recognized by St. Clements University group as partial fulfillment for its award of modular certificates, diplomas or degrees are considered semi-independent research project. A research learner will receive a Certificate of Research Participation from the Fourthway ManHo Center and will have to apply through MMC for acceptance of the Research Certificates with St. Clements University group for the award its credentials.
If training is involved as part of MRD's research program, a training certificate will be issued to the successful participant from ManHo Management Consultancy (T&D Center). You are advised to refer to the Oskiano Section below for two such programs currently available ~ the Psychophilosophy Program and the Natural Psychophysical Therapy Program.
Currently, most of the research projects are in the business & management areas related to the investigation of one or any one of the aspects of the sociocosmic stopinders at the 4th orbit of the sociocosmic vibration or on the 3rd primary sociocosmos called 'organizations'. There are a lot of in-built research freedom in MRD to ensure the blossom of true research creativity and right research spirit when you participate in your own research projects with MRD.
Numerous people have graduated from this research participation and mentorship. Click here to see the list.
Fees and charges are required to cover supervision/mentorship charges, the administration costs and the certification award.
Together with academic or scientific journals on HEIGRENS research, the E-Publication provide an important channel for exchange of information amongst researchers worldwide. Originally, the Works of Tan Man Ho is electronically published in Fourthway ManHo E-Journal. Currently, the St. Clements University E-Magazine (ANCHOR) and its Academic Journals (Veritas) are published through ManHo Higher Education (MHE) at St. Clements University E-Publication. The coming new e-Publication sites are World Peace Assembly of Malaysia Berhad (WPAMB) and World Congress of Arts, Science and Communications (WCASC). Relevant and good papers will be suggested for posting to United Nation Social Development Network (UNSDN). Approved high quality contributory papers with permission from the author and the publisher might be electronically published in the e-Publication sites of Fourthway ManHo Center.

Oskiano means "education" in contemporary jargon but the notion is different in that this is perceived in the Gurdjieffian manner with and understanding of a "danger" of the dilution of fineness of consciousness as a result of 'formativization and categoricalization' installation to 'that which flows in the five centers of man in accordance to inner devices not belonging to formatory and category structures'.
MRD's search and research history on the harmonious development of human beings and the harmonious development of sociocosmic stopinders has caused a change in the perception of this area of knowledge resulting in some restructuring and re-categorization of existing knowledge and the gradual emergence of the new Faculty of Psychophilosophy of the Gurdjieff-Ouspenskian origin.
The blossoms and fruits of past labors can be found in many literatures both of ancient and modern origins and in various forms of exposition under different subject names and the research methodology are of scientific, psychological, philosophical, mystical and illogical types.
To encourage the early coming-into-being of a more and more consolidated data base in this obscure field of knowledge with a vision solely for the well being of human posterity, opportunities are created at MRD for formal recognition of "discoveries" for this frontier research quest, which otherwise has been neglected by most traditional universities.
Being a new faculty resting on both modern and ancient knowledge from esoteric centers, traditional schools of thoughts and alternative medicine, the Systematics has being evolved and those willing to assist in the expansion and at the same time getting official recognition for diploma, master and doctorate recognitions can take up the challenge and contribute with MRD. MRD will provide mentorship, support, consultation, facilitation, training and other appropriate means available to let you achieve your educational goal and recognition.
MRD is actively working on a paradigm for changing man and society through HEIGRENS principles, that emphasize holistic, educational, integrative, green, responsible, evolutionary, no-harm and sustainable principles. One of the outcome is the development of a HEIGRENS program that is related to responsible education. The program constitutes the oskianic faculty of psychophilosophy.
The MRD's oskianic faculty includes:
The Faculty of Psychophilosophy which carries out research and development studies in the field of knowledge related to:
"The study of the psyche, the psycho-functional, the physiological, the psycho-sociocosmic, the psycho-technocosmic and the psycho-cosmic dimensions of man, nature, society and the universe in relation to their physical dimensions through the integrated methods of science, logic, psychology, philosophy and the "work", or otherwise, and its application in the real world."
and typical research interest includes all psychophilosophies and psycho-related areas that deal with the study of man as a development possibility, the ways to harmonize and improve healthy living for normal man or human psychophilosophies & therapies.
Some of the typical areas for such research will therefore include: The Fourth Way, The Enneagram of Human Personality Types, Hatha Yoga, Pranayama, Hand & Foot Reflexology, Taiqi Quan, Longevity, Energy Medicine, Massage Therapy, Therapeutic Philosophy, Therapeutic Dance, The Psychology of Man's Possible Evolution, Color Therapy, Music Therapy, Quasa Therapy, etc. ~ they are the study of man as an alternative medicine dimensions. These areas of research lead to a second specialized sub-faculty which enable researchers to study for a degree in Natural Psychophysical Therapy.
A second area of research interest deals with the study of the socio-psychophilosopies and includes : The Enneagram of Sociocosmoses, Sociocosmology, Psychosocial Philosophy, Therapeutic Social Systems, Psychopolitics, Ergonomics/Psychotechocosmic Systems, Organizational Behavior, Ecosocial Systems, etc. ~ the study of psychic aspects of societal entities as a sociocosmic dimension.
A third area of research interest deals with the study of the psychology of nature, technology and the universe or biocosmic, technocosmic and cosmic psychophilosophies, and includes: Steiner's Biodynamics, Cosmic Consciousness, The Tertium Organum of Ouspensky, Theory of Dimensions, Biocosmology, Animal Magnetism, Psychochemistry, Body Types, Ecopsychology, Psychocosmology/Astrology, Psychobiology/Psychophysiology, The Enneagram of the Cosmoses, Emanations & Atmospheres, Artificial Intelligence, Feng-Shui, Rays of Creation, etc. ~ the study of physical nature and the universe as psychophysical beings.
A final area of research interest deals with the general study of the minds and ideas in relation to its ability to generate faculties and knowledge. The specimen objects of research interest are identified and established groups of ideas as laid down in writings - Mathematics, History, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Geography, Philosophy, Psychology, Ouspensky's work, Ethics, Gurdjieff's Works, ManHo's works, other emerging subjects in formation, etc. This includes also the music in the form of 'collections of harmonious sounds', etc. ~ the noosphere dimension. Although these are knowledge & skills, their psychological being is the purpose of the research.

Works by Professor Dr. Tan Man-Ho cover a wide field of knowledge in areas of the study of man, nature, society and the universe.
A. Real World Views
The Real World Views is the main part of the author's life-long work to uncover the mystery, riddles and challenges in an effort to understand man, nature, society and the universe, and to satisfy his unquenchable curiosity about everything existing in the life presence of every being. It seeks to evolve a coherent system, lay a strong foundation of thought about everything existing and to expouse a Teaching System of great practical value in developing balanced individuals, groups and organizations based on special methods that originate from a number of great individuals of the past, notably G.I. Gurdjieff and P.D. Ouspensky and others.
This series which the author took more than 30 years of serious work to complete would be the only few rare works made available by Dr. Tan Man-Ho. To put it simply, the books are the outcome of 30 years of research after the author's meeting with remarkable men who possess esoteric secrets or great knowledge about man, nature, society and the universe, hitherto, quite unknown to the ordinary man and the intellectuals alike. The series consists of 22 books and some are ready for publishing.
The work is written with all its peculiar philology and expression of psychic peculiarities of various inner innovations aimed at an inner triad action for the inner transformation of the serious readers in accordance with the inner desire and wish of his great cosmic grandfather's, Mr. Beelzebub's great concern for the well-being of all beings on Earth, purportedly expressed in his second and third aims (with the omission of the first aim of his 3 aims) :
For achieving these abovementioned aims, the Real World Views books are made available for the potentially troubled but "great" individuals, chiefly:
