If we will not change anything in the moral and worldview basis of our civilization, then it will degrade

“...Where should we swim?”

(A.S. Pushkin).

Alexey Severikov: “If we will not change anything in the moral and worldview basis basis of our civilization, then it will degrade”.

Perhaps this question worries many people, and rightly so. This is because any control (regardless what is being controlled) — is foreseeing the future, more precisely, foreseeing of how the controlled object will behave in the future.

G-Zero world and Putin

Mysterious list

The release of an article in the Foreign Policy (FP) journal issue has made a furor in Russian mass-media. The FP issue stated that Vladimir Putin (Russian president) is the number one in the rating of the most powerful people in the world of the year 2012. The 0th place was taken by the mysterious Mister Nobody.

BBC hastened to disprove this statement:

The article highlights that if such rating would ever be constructed, then it would not have been headed by an american.

Recently Russian news agencies have published that Foreign Policy journal named the Russian president the most powerful political, business and public person of the planet [1].»

However, this fact is not as interesting, as the explanation of it. Even more interesting is how the actual list of Ian Bremmer looks like:

«In Bremmer’s list Putin took second place, the first did not get anyone [1].»

"1. Nobody — In a G-Zero world, everyone is waiting for someone else to shoulder responsibility for the world's toughest and most dangerous challenges. The leaders you'll see named further down this list are preoccupied with local and regional problems and don't have the interest and leverage needed to take on a growing list of transnational problems [2]."

On 22nd of March 2013 in Russian Centre for Science and Culture in Brussels a conference titled “Approaches that promote intercultural dialogue in the modern society” has been hosted by International non-profit organisation “New Youth Policy”. Conference gathered diplomats, public figures, experts, youth, representatives of the organisation from several countries and other professionals, which have both direct or indirect interest in intercultural co-operation and in the conference topics. By the common opinion of the attendees, our society is constantly growing and changing. Globalization is an objective process of global economy, countries, societies and their cultural values. The world is becoming unified, but what kind of place it will become fully depends on us and on those principles that we will develop together and base this union on.

From the hedonistic to the eudemonistic understanding of happiness

Евгений Осин

In your opinion, which psychological study done or published within the last 10 years (2002 - 2012) is the most significant and important?

Answers Eugene Osin, candidate of psychological sciences, docent at the faculty of psychology of the National Research University “Higher School of Economics”:

For me, the most important appears to be that positive psychology in the last 10 years has eventually moved from the, as F. Vasilyuk called it, “ontology of the isolated individual” – psychology that studies the human as they were in a vacuum, separated from all their life circumstances and relationships – to studying the human as an essentially social being, linked to other humans. And studies emerge that support these ideas, which were voiced long ago by E. Fromm, S. Rubenstein, and other authors.

Alcohol and psyche as the totality of the human mind, conscious, and unconscious

First of all, we need some clarifications, since brain and intellect, though connected to each other, are, in fact two different concepts. Brain is a part of the human central nervous system, consisting of a large number of neurons joined by synaptic connections. Intellect, in the most general sense, is a process of self-tuning algorithms that sample and transform information, as a result of which information modules are constructed. These modules were previously unknown to the system and have not been received in ready-made form. The intellect is a kind of general nature phenomenon and therefore is not related only to humans.

Global transformations - Russian Project

Sunday, 21 October 2012 11:20 | Hits: 7588 |

Viktor Efimov

Today's world is on the brink of an objectively necessary global transformation. On its own scale, the radical meaning for the history of humanity will significantly exceed not only the transformations of 1917, 1991 etc., which remain fresh in our memories, but also the highly important transformations of the distant past, such as the religious reforms of Pharoah Akhenaten (King to Nefertiti, c.1330 BC), the Christianization of Ancient Russia; Europe's rejection of a basic (civilizational) code of civilized sustainable development, and a prohibition of 16th century usury (loans with (abusive) interest rates). It is exactly these circumstances which are at the foundation of the present European systemic crisis of civilization. A need for change is so obvious, that even the leader of the parasitic organized world-order of the godless USA declared it so. At the opening of the 64th session of the UN General Assembly in September 2009, Barack Obama said: "We need to begin a new era of cooperation, based on mutual interest and mutual respect", noting also that their previous political policies caused a world-wide "reflexive Anti-Americanism".

Future Global Currency

Tuesday, 21 August 2012 12:01 | Hits: 2163 |

The world is fidgeting with currencies in search for a reliable and secure future. The strength of a particular currency is usually associated with economic strength of the country or region that issues it. We can go like this in circles endlessly seeking for the strongest country that will deliver the strongest currency. But let’s pose a question: is it a strong economy that ensures the strong currency, or is it an adequately managed currency that affords economy to be strong? There are reasons to claim the latter to be true.

The Chess of Life

Saturday, 11 August 2012 12:55 | Hits: 6396 |

When I first started playing chess I was very excited about how many ways there are to move pieces. I thought that а good chess-player is the one that knows all the moves by heart. Later I realized that there are groups of moves that are called combinations and had a belief that one  needs to study combinations. And lastly I learned that there is a golden rule to occupy a center of the board. Occupying center was my overall strategy and it helped me to win some games. Nevermind… I got bored with chess as moving pieces in 8*8 matrix does not solve real life problems. Now I recollect my chess experience and see analogies in real life...

Automation and Hand Crafted Work - What Is The Difference?

Saturday, 11 August 2012 12:38 | Hits: 3123 |

The concept of “AUTOMATION” means the use of control systems and information technologies to reduce the need of hand crafted human work in the production of goods and services.

Generally, the purpose of automation is to increase productivity and improve the quality of a product. Next purpose is also optimization of control system and most importantly is the reduction of manual labour in plants that are dangerous to health. As well solves the automation, except the simplest cases, the problem that require an integrated and systematic approach.

Unfortunately, as with all things, there is a relatively large number of advantages and  disadvantages.
