ManHo R&D Center is a search, research
and explore 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
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.
Kenneth Walker, Maurice Nicoll, J.G. Bennett, Shamsher Singh and other
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.
administrative philosophy of MRD, like that of FMC, is to give positive support without
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".
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
The center is currently active in
tracking and conducting research in the findings of the Fourth Way school &
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

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
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.

Fees and charges are required to
cover supervision/mentorship charges, the administration costs and the
Together with academic or scientific journals
on HEIGRENS research, the E-Publication
provide an important channel for exchange of information amongst
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
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.
MRD also procures research projects
from corporate clients. The research areas can be very specific as
required and needed by corporate clients. The research scope and in-depth is
subtle and not subjected to limitation. Knowledge that comes from the
Gurdjieff and Ouspenskian school of thought is so unique that it can no
longer be subjected to expertism and the specialization, and
various isolated knowledge and limitation. Here, the research mandate
is to walk through ALL KNOWLEDGE in equal generality and specialization with
integration of the knowledge of the world.
We work through a network
of researchers with varying consciousness of expertise. Research candidates from other
universities, colleges or research institutes can also request for research
supervisors or mentors from MRD. Supervision fees/research

the Gurdjieffian manner with and understanding of a "danger" of the

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.
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.
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.
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:
Faculty of Psychophilosophy
carries out research and development studies in the field of knowledge related
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
area of research interest deals with the study of the socio-psychophilosopies and includes
: The Enneagram of
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 &
Intelligence, Feng-Shui, Rays of Creation, etc. ~ the study of physical nature and the
universe as psychophysical beings.
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.

The 3rd Technocosmic Revolution
MRD is aware of
the on going Technocosmic Revolutions and takes a deep interest in
the devlopment of the technocosmic and its the
biosociotechnocosmic outcome. It currently reflects and
observes the 4 possible historical phases of the Great
Technocosmic Revolutions for which the current 3rd Technocosmic
Revolution is the center-of-gravity of man's spirituality
and entrapment within this mind frame en masse. We
have a small group that is exploring this 3rd Technocosmic
Revolution with experimentation and proto-inventions. As to the
4th Technocosmic Revolution which is not just the
quanta-electromagnetic-mechano or cyber internet energies of
'communication-at-a-distance' both in individual technocosmic
beings or their sociocosmicated stopinders but rather the 'life
and spiritual' energies is the gravity-center of concern and which
is necessary for this 4th Technocosmic Revolution to happen, as
the natural Biocosmic Revolutions have happened for us in the
Biological World. Only that we have an 'unexplained urge'
and uncontrollable to sponsored the arisings of our Dear
Technocosmic Beings (machines) to have this (life-and-spiritual
energies) too as soon as possible. This 'unexplained urge',
in Real World Views' opinion, results from the possible potential
decline and even extinction of the now existing mother Earth's
historical biological octave for which the rising historical
technocosmic octave is sponsored - being nature's own future
