Heading Towards the Planetary Civil
The identity of purposes and
conclusions, and therefore that of the further way of the mentioned paradigm
rapprochement is demonstrated in the paper on the examples of two outlook
conceptions (introduction to the modern scientific and esoteric). The answers
to the questions put forward by one outlook have been developed by the other
one. Thus the academician N.N.Moiseyev’s maxim “to find a new moral system for
the modern mankind” was properly developed in the other outlook conception
(Theosophy, Agni-Yoga) which not only contradicts but also supplement with and
even outstrips the things that have been discovered by the traditional science
The authors give examples of two outlook
conceptions (introduction to the modern scientific /1/ and esoteric /2/ ) to
show the identity of goals and conclusions and, therefore, further
rapprochement of these two paradigms. The answers to the questions put forward
by one outlook have been developed by the other one. Thus the author’s /2/
maxim “to find the new moral system for the modern mankind” is perfectly
developed in the other outlook conception (Theosophy, Agni-Yoga) which doesn’t
contradict everything discovered by the traditional science. More than that, it
supplements it and goes much further.
Introduction to the problem’s topicality.
We fully agree with the words of the academician N. N. Moiseyev according to
which “the possibilities of the consuming society – the civilization
originating from the neolitical revolution- are spent or are close to be spent.
All good the society had been able to give people was already got, and now the
mankind is on its way to the epoch of qualitative change of the character of
its development. If to use the dynamic system theory language the mankind is on
the way to the bifurcation phase where the public evolution process channel ,
that is the public evolution development type ( and maybe the anthropogenesis
character) itself is changed” /1/.
The academician N. N. Moiseyev is sure that
it is necessary to introduce as special course “The Modern Outlook” as the
relationships between a human being and the Nature are globally critical at
present. The authors of the paper share this opinion. Just for comparison they
also turned to the book “The Basics of the New Epoch Outlook” /2/ devoted to
the fundamental life problems and the mankind development Though N. N. Moiseyev
considers the esoteric knowledge to be “ancient, not completely lost or simply
intuitive knowledge or even superstition”, he calls it esoteric ( and explains:
from Greek : “inner”), that is secret, hidden, assigned to esoteric people only
( in religious ceremonies, mystical doctrine, magic formulae)). The knowledge
came from the human being’s history and exists now, in the era of space and
nuclear energy. More than that, according to the authors, the knowledge is of
great demand now. According to the academician N. N. Moiseyev the relationship
between a human being and the Nature occupies a special place in the knowledge.
He emphasizes the beneficial influence of the Nature itself on a human being
/1/. The authors of the collected articles /3/ ( by the way, it’s the
collection of the articles of Russian and Ukrainian scientists supporting both
the traditional science approach to the outlook problem and the esoteric
conception stated by the Doctor of Philosophy S. R. Ableyev who was the first
to defend the dissertation on the Roerich family heritage. He also wrote a
striking book which is closely connected with the topic of the paper under
discussion /4/ as the author managed to overcome the philosophy eurocentrizm
and illustrates thoroughly both oriental and Russian conception, cultural and historical
phenomenon of the esoteric philosophy. All science conferences “The Ethics and
Future Science” traditionally organized and held by the New Epoch journal
Delphis are devoted to rapprochement of the outlooks of the science and
. From «ноmo sapiens» to «homo
noospheres». At the beginning of the XX century V. I. Vernadsky said that
the practical activity of a human being is the main geology forming force of
the planet. Now, in the era of the nuclear energy, we know that the human being
is able to destroy everything that is alive on the planet. That is why
understanding of the potential possibilities of the human being’s activities
and danger as to the human being’s fate being the result of the activities if
they are not controlled by the Collective Intellect of the human being is tone
of the corner stones of the world outlook and, consequently, the education
But at the same time
it is practically impossible to separate the role of each of the sources and
study them separately or ignore their influence on the human being as all of
them make up the single human being’s inner world and define the human being’s
behaviour in difficult situations.
V. I. Verndadsky’s
philosophy is as follows: the more destroying are the forces the mankind
possesses the more perfect the mechanism of social control over these forces
should be. It is impossible to make this control perfect if there is no
philosophical platform which can appear in the frames of the noosphere theory.
To create this theory is the first and foremost task of the science of the XXI
The primacy of the
material comforts is the dead-end way of technical civilization. The
noosphere’s ideals mean the primacy of the cultural wealth over the material comforts,
personality freedom from, first of all, the economic pressure and unfair social
The human being
should have, like V. I. Vernadsky did, limited material and unlimited cultural
needs. The wise ideas of grand V. I. Vernadsky are very topical today: “ You
can’t put off taking care of everlasting and grand for the time when the
possibility to meet the elementary needs will be reached by everybody.
Otherwise it’ll be too late. We’ll hand in the material comforts to the people
whose ideal will be “bread and spectacle”. They would only like to eat, drink,
make love and do nothing. Can the teacher be satisfied bringing up the
Skalozubs, Molchanovs, greedy for money bankers, corrupted free-livers,
gluttons, and selfish people /6/.
The term «homo noospheres»
was introduced by a group of authors /7/. The academician A. A. Yashin says: “
The modern Russian scientist, philosopher and cosmos supporter V. P.
Kaznacheyev, a recognized successor of V. I. Verndadsky’s doctrine on noosphere
puts ahead the problem of vectorization of the movement of the summarized
intellect of the Earth planet : the intellect implemented into the culture,
cultural aspiration, science and technical progress etc.”
The vector of the
movement of the summarized intellect of the mankind at the moment of change
from the «ноmo sapiens» to «homo noospheres» should be analyzed
/8/. According to the authors of the paper the virtual reality ( in literature,
mass media, and the Internet) is this summarized expression, the reflection of
the collective intellect. It’s a separate big topic for discussion. This very
component is of great importance as ‘the future of the planetary community will
greatly depend on the knowledge spreading and character, erudition, culture and
ideological universals which are the knowledge consequence and which N. N.
Moiseyev calls the world understanding. “ It is this very component of the
outlook that society can influence purposely. The future of the society will
depend on its ability to understand and accept the unavoidable taboos and obey
them rather than on the technique and technologies perfection” /1/.
necessity of ecological imperative closely connected with the ethical one.
The system of
prohibitions which guarantees the mankind’s development stability is implied by
this term. Why is it so? While becoming «ноmo sapiens» that is
being aware of himself like this the human being was able to survive due to the
right of the ‘wise’ which existed along with the right of the ‘strong’.
According to N. N. Moiseyev it was reflected in the first “taboos” : “Don’t
kill!” “Look for your second half next cave” and later on in the system of the
“Teacher”. It made it possible to create the stronger army and people and to
survive. Thus the dispositions perfection ( the idea of ‘morality” and later
on the “ethics” –morality science- generated from it) helped the human being to
survive rather than to kill each other as it happened at the earlier stages (
archeological dig proves it).
principle “don’t kill!” solved the contradictions between the strongest and
wisest in favour of the latter.
N. Moiseyev spells the word “Teacher” with the capital letter he means not a
person who teaches other people but the whole system of passing the information
to further generations. This system is formed by public institutions. A teacher
as a separate person whose occupation is to teach young generation is the most
important element of the system of the “Teacher”. This element is based on
traditions, legal institutions which provide the bringing up of the future
members of the society. Defence of all members of the tribe or family
contradicted the relations which traditionally existed in the primitive herd.
Really, wise and skilled members of the tribe who provided its welfare were
not always the strongest, most courageous and luckiest in the men’s fightings
which were preferable under usual species selection. To defend not only females
and posterity but also knowledge and skills bearer or those who could bear them
were of vital necessity for the herd of the original people ( or primitive
horde). According to N. N. Moiseyev the strongest prohibition “don’t kill!”
appeared gradually on this basis. As it was extremely important for any human
being’s group it became the background for any moral and exists in different
forms in the religions of all nations /1/. We would like to state that the
concept of the “Teacher” was developed the most completely by the oriental
danger of coming back of the New Medieval appeared immediately. “I often call
myself a pessimistic optimist as I see the potential possibilites the mankind
has. But I’m not sure at all that the mankind will be able to use them and
manage the genetic heritage left by the mammoth hunters which lives in us. Once
this heritage threw all the achievement of the antique civilization back,
immersed Europe into darkness of the Medieval. It’s this heritage that
represents itself both in the world and local wars and every day behaviour of
the inmhabitants of the civilized world /1/. As a matter of fact it is
necessary to change the thinking paradigm as we are at the very point of
bifurcation from which we can’t return.
statement made by S. V. Klyuchnikov is quite suitable here. “ It is more
important to catch and understand themoral of the forthcoming epoch by separating
the main from the secondary. If theindividualism – the characteristic
absolutely necessary to find the place under the sun - has been constantly
cultivated in the human being since Rennaisance , the new synthesis epoch gives
birth to a new quality which is commonness. It makes the human being feel
himself "“a single whole'’/10/. A numberof projects we are taking part in
and being mentioned below reflect this idea. They cover the majority of the
books mentioned in the papers.
Spartans and the modern society helots. According to N. N. Moiseyev the main danger lies in the
idea of the civilization universal paradigm, its forced introducing as a
standard, the Protestantism ethics canonization. It can rather be called the
“global Americanism’ which supports the idea of selection, personal success
being its measure. This selection gives oneness and permissiveness the right to
exist. This idea came to minds of many Europeans and especially Americans. It
gave birth to the conception of the “gold milliard” and other similar ideas
which would be a catastrophe for the mankind , the conviction in perfection of
the political and economic system accepted by Euro-American civilization being
the most dangerous. The future decisions will be made in the spirit of the O’Henry’s
story the hero of which killed his companion and justified it by the words: “
Bolivar won’t carry two people”.
possibilities of any civilization based on individualism, idea of oneness,
pathological conviction in the personal superiority are spent. They have played
their game. This idea is proved by the general falling of the western culture,
reduction of the educated people intelligence, absence of the interest in the
High Art, everything beautiful created by the mankind and that meets the striving
for good, philanthropy, and empathy. This Euro- American culture and the
tendency of its development is the distillation of the spiritual degradation
peculiar to the civilization which approved capitalism in its modern form.
capitalist system is not interested in the really intelligent and educated
society that is aware of the malignancy and danger of the scenario of the
public evolution as it contradicts to the momentary advantage of those who
“rule the ball” /1/.
author of the paper /1/ drives to the conclusion that norms of the socialism (
though it sounds strange today) should be adopted . But it should be a
different stage where the space laws ( e.g. will freedom) are not broken. The
paradigm of the paper /2/ could be of great help here. As we are people living
under the civilization’s crisis we should be aware of the growing practical
importance of the ideas of socialism in this interpretation because the
civilization is gaining more power and the human being becomes equal to the Nature
if not to gods. These ideas are significant for understanding of dependence on
the relations with Nature and necessity of the dependence conditions
observance. That is why N. N. Moiseyev uses the word combination the
“ecological socialism”. According to him the ideas of the socialism are
sometimes implemented unconsciously, without any purpose like all the laws of
the system of self-organization, like necessary fulfillment conditioned by the
Nature self-organization logic. Maybe it contains the great truth of life as
what is called the “socialist idea” is associated with the idea of “good” in
the religion of all nations /1/.
is impossible to implement the ecological imperative without approval of the
moral one. The latter contains the main ideas of the Sermon on the Mount, basic
ethic norms of the world religions and the desire to create the order on the
Earth in accordance with which the people could get earthly blessings and
spiritual wealth according to the effort put in. The people should spend the
force and skills on the basis of the knowledge which is the public property.
Without it the futurity of the human being , if he wants to preserve this name,
is hopeless! More than that, the idea of “freedom, equality, and brotherhood”
was written on the Theosophy’s banner. What’s the problem then? The problem is
in understanding of the situation and making the collective decision.
From the Collective
Intellect to the Collective Mind and Collective Will.
Thinking about the collective or
artificial intellect and the ways of its creation the person wants to
understand how the life was given the intellect, how it appeared in the Nature.
The person wonders how the brain, which consists of tens of millions of neurons
and capable not only to invent and create but cognize itself appeared from one
and maybe and only cell.
of the Collective Mind (Collective Intellect) is analogous to forming of the
human being’s brain. The human being’s brain, as well as that of other animals,
consists of neurons which are not able to act reasonably on their own. But in
their aggregate they give birth to a certain system characteristic which we
call thinking. Its studying doesn’t cover the studying of separate neurons as
it really is the system characteristic of the neuron aggregate! It doesn’t
depend on the people’s will.
same could be said about the Collective Intellect. It is formed of the
aggregate of the individual intellects of some people and minds playing the
role of separate neurons in this aggregate. This system ( the individual minds
aggregate) has characteristics which are not derived from the characteristics
of separate minds. It is a system characteristic. Its potential possibilities,
which we can’t evaluate today, don’t depend on the will and actions of the
people . It is the result of the self-organization. But the possibilities
application depends on the civil society features and organization and its
Collective Will. The alternatives can be unexpected.
real informational society could be born. Its Collective Intellect could solve
the problems of the co-evolution, organize the society according to that
pattern which N. N. Moiseyev called the rationally organized society. But the
Collective Intellect could fall into hands of small number of people who could
implement another type of the strategy – the strategy of totalitarianism. The
power of the planetary informational system could be used to approve it. It
could be used to make zombies out of the “helots” who make up the majority of
the planet’s population for them to provide the life to a comparatively small
number of the modern democratic “Spartans”. We are now under the influence of
the powerful mass media which are concentrated in a small number of hands. May
be this fact really is the beginning of the purposeful process of making
knowledge on the relations of the Nature and the human being and his place in
the biosphere gives birth to the Collective Intellect and general understanding
of the planetary situation. Spreading of the informational technologies and
systems like the Internet, that of the symbiosis of the information science and
television speeds up the ageing of general understanding which is no more the
destiny of wise people only . It is even the property of politicians. The
forming of the Collective Intellect is the same natural process as the living
substance evolution /1/.
development of the informational technologies as any other technology is
two-faced Janus. New technological facilities make the Collective Intellect
forming easy, but at the same time they help to form the totalitarian system
and besides necessary knowledge dissemination they can help to make zombies out
of the majority of the planet population. This is taking place now. The reference
to the anti-Utopia of Orwell.
the crotch in the process of public evolution appears at the modern stage of
history. The Collective Mind can appear together with the Collective Will, and
the horizons of the informational society will open in front of the mankind.
The Collective Mind will play the same role as the mind of the human being in
his body’s vital function: it will keep the society’s development from the
results of the global crisis.
absolutely different thing can happen: Only the countries of the “gold
milliard” will possess the Collective Mind. The informational technologies will
promote the totalitarianism strengthening. It will mean that 90% of the
population of the globe will play the role of the Spartan’s helots and provide the
satisfied and socially stable life of the “gold milliard” in the pollution
free villages while all the planet together with the countries of the “gold
milliard” will continue its rush towards the abyss.
The modern stage of
history is the final splash of the consumption society. Despite the further
events it is the beginning of the agony of the system of values which appeared
as a result of the property finding /1/ Will the society be able to stop the
only property form is knowledge
to the academician N. N. Moiseyev there will be the moment when the public
property that is the property which belongs to EVERYBODY will be the only form
of the property. Knowledge, ideas, cultural values are the examples. The
property’s certain subject doesn’t exist. For example, knowledge, in
principle, belongs to all people, and any member of the society is a potential
user of it. The property has one amazing feature: the more complete its usage
is the more good it does to the society as the sizes of the public property (
the volume of the knowledge) grow when it is used jointly. Bernard Show said:
“If I take an apple from you, we will have the same apple. If I take an idea
from you, we will have two ideas.”
reconstruction of the structure of the property takes place inevitably. More
than that, our idea about the property and its role in the life of the society
changes gradually. But,, unfortunately, those whom the fate of the land
property or computer programmes copyrights depend on don’t understand it
We think that Internet
electron libraries with the open access and books, paintings, films etc. with
the evolution ideas is the reflection of this type of property. Now it is
becoming a tendency ( the national galleries of the world countries are free).
It’s high time to have open libraries and develop adjoining projects. We are
forming the library like this at http://roerich.com/. A lot of evolution
projects can be found here. Some most important of them are as follows:

As each project has
different preparation and experience but common aims there exist e real chance
to integrate the projects both on the technical and organizational levels. It
means the mutual help and, theoretically, creation of the virtual society of
the new type which proposes access to it for everybody. This is the society to
which all of us strive for. The most important thing here is not to lose the
evolution direction vector and strive for high principles of the Ethic Code of
the Roerich Movement. http://www.roerich.com/codex_rd3.htm
technologies as the antique Agora. This comparison was made by B. V. Markov from St. Petersburg /11/ : “ Mass media should be the place where moral and business,
perception and poetry meet. It was the creation of such places that stimulated
the development of the European culture. Dangerous and bright prospects of mass
media should not hide the fact that they are the space where, like on antique
agora, people exchange opinions. Our agora becomes not verbal but virtual.” The
role of such discussions will grow further on but where they can lead is a
question. Thus the stages of the noospheric mankind formation, its
inevitability, if the mankind is going to live not only in the XXI century but
further on should be reflected in the Internet and mass media. It is the
essence of the Internet. We would like to cite John P. Barlow. He wrote in the
Declaration of the Independence of the Cyberspace/12/: “Governments of the
Industrial world, you are tired giants made from flesh and steel; my Motherland
is Cyberspace, a new house of Perception. On behalf of the future I ask you,
who don’t have future, leave us alone. Among us you are unnecessary. You don’t
possess supreme power at the place where we have gathered… You have neither
moral right to rule over us nor methods which could make us be frightened …Our
world is everywhere and, at the same time, nowhere. But it is not where our
bodies live…We will create the Perception civilization in the Cyberspace. Let
it be more humane and honest than the world created by your governments”.
As we understand now
the mankind is to build the noosphere before coming into it. First of all it is
to create the society able to implement the ideas of noosphere genesis. The
process of its construction will be difficult and long. It even can be painful.
If the mankind succeeds it will be a new epoch in its history. N. N. Moiseyev
calls it the noosphere epoch. Thus, the noosphere is the time, the period in
the history of the mankind during which the human being’s Mind is capable to
define the conditions necessary to provide the co-evolution of the Nature and
society when the people’s Collective Will necessary to implement the conditions
that is the noosphere development process is formed. These necessary conditions
are called ecological imperative /1/.
Goal achievement strategy. The authors
support the approach put forward by E. Laslo in his book Macroshift. These are
ideas of forming of the future on the basis of the modern principles of
control. They are consonant with the ideas mentioned above. The idea of the
approach is as follows: don’t resist changes but use the power of the processes
taking place in the preferable way.
Trentovsky was the first to understand this. He is one of the founders of
cybernetics as the science on the control of the processes of the science
nature ( together with Ampere who was the first to introduce this Greek term in
the 30s of the XIX century which was later on forgotten and then revived by
Norbert Winner in 100 years). This remarkable Polish philosopher, not
recognized by contemporaries and forgotten by descendants, delivered lectures
on cybernetics philosophy at the University of Freiburg in 1846. In them he
stated his own understanding of the principles of control of the people’s
groups close to those offered today. N. N. Moiseyev called this conception “the
principle of a helmsman”: in his desire to reach the habour the helmsman is to
rely not only on himself; he is to use the power of Nature ( the flow and wind
force) to the maximum and not to direct his ship against the flow. The same
situation is observed in the public life: the main thing is to understand the
natural tendencies of the development. It is with the help of the knowledge and
in the name of perseverance of himself on the planet the human being should
overcome the difficulties of the development.
published the complete set of his ideas on the actions of the cybernet ( he
followed the tradition of usage of the Greek language in science terminology
and called the human being who controls not only the technical system but the
people’s group by this word) in his paper The Philosophy of the Cybernetics
issued in Polish in Posnan in 1848 /1/.
near on the basis of the virtual reality. The virtual reality is literature, mathematics,
cinematography, music etc. ( we even don’t mention the Internet and television)
/8/. Every type of the art brings the human being’s fantasy to its field. It
means that we can speak about the world of Dostoyevsky, Tolstoy etc. It is
interesting to note that Agni Yoga has the idea of “passing the tests under the
sign” that is, having overcome the difficulty virtually and having done it
properly there is no need for a person to pass the tests in reality. May be
the secret of curing and beneficial influence of fiction ( The Crime and Punishment
etc.) and other forms of the virtual reality is hidden in it? Thus, we can
speak about the important role the reality plays in the life of a human being.
We know about the leading role of the thought ( everything we dream about
becomes a reality sooner or later )from the Real Ethics. So, it is very
important what we surround ourselves and relatives with, what thoughts we fill
ourselves and the world around us with. “By changing ourselves we change the
computer creators spoke about different pitfalls at the earliest stage of the
computer development ( it is interesting to note that their papers are
republished and are very topical, see /15/). N. Winner cites three parables (
F. Goethe’s The Magician, The Thousand and One Nights, U. U. Jackobs’ The
Monkey’s Pad) and drives to the conclusions: “There is only one way out – to
build a society based on human values different from buying-selling… Those of
us who promoted the development of the new science of cybernetics are, if to
put it mildly, in unfavourable moral situation. This new science, the
development of which we helped, leads to technical achievements
which create, as I have already told, huge possibilities for the good and evil.
We can pass our knowledge to the world around us, and it is the world of Belsen
and Hiroshima. WE even don’t have a chance to slow new technical achievements
down. The best thing we could do is to help the public to understand the
general trend of the work …and that the benefit from better understanding of the
human being and society which this new science gives can postpone and overweigh
our unintentional assistance to the power concentration ( which always – due
to conditions of its existence- is in the hands of people who are unscrupulous.
But I’m writing this in 1947. I have to state that the hope for this is too
small.” It is easy to note that the life proved the words of N. Winner. The
informational war for the better operational system is waged on by many
countries and communities. Thus, for example, to resist the USA operational systems in the person of Windows the EU and some countries of the CIS
implement Linux. B Gates in his book The Business at the Speed of the Thought
reveals his plans as to the informational control over the world.
Applying the ancient oriental principle to a
longer line drawing (see /14/) the authors recommend to create such projects
and to live in such a way that other people would follow them. The Internet
gives a nice chance for that. According to the proposal made by the Board of
the Forum of the site http://roerich.com the closer integration of the projects
takes place that makes it possible to avoid doubling and spread facilities more
rationally. The idea of the new type Association which is drifting in the air
and about which the administration of the journal Delfis spoke is in the same
course. The Ethics Code of the Roerich Movement is supposed to be its basis
/16/. We think it to be a new type of activity –collaboration in the name of
the Common Good..
We would like to speak on some impact of using
the Internet to put the evolution ideas forward. With us it’s a report on the
activities undertaken by us ( there are some projects that obtained better
results – we propose them and those who see the sense in this fair activity
collaborating with us). The information is known to be searched with the help
of search machines quite easily ( though they can’t cover all the information
that Internet contains. It is still Terra Incognito).These machines “know” only
the visible part of the iceberg. Nevertheless, as there is no other method
found, we use the most all-purpose search system GOOGLE.COM By the way, if you
address this search system 100 000 machines built into one cluster ( to process
the huge quantity of the information with the reasonable speed) work for you.
It gives the index to he popularity of the resources in the world. For example,
the phrase “Roerich’s Newsletter” will obtain 200 references ( see fig.1) and
the Oriflamma http://roerich.com/ with all the projects mentioned above will be
the reference number 1.
It is also interesting to find
out which countries visit our project sites and how often they do it. You can
do it from the central page of the site ( the direct reference /17/). The
number of the daily visits sometimes exceed 1000 ( like in January 2005). Russia, the USA, and Ukraine occupy the first three lines in the list of the visitors ( more than
100 world countries follow them). The server SpyLog /18/ gives the more
complete statistics of it and other catalogues and ratings we take part in. But
the experts consider the search system Google.come to be more complete and
independent . It is illustrated by the fig.1.
made on the basis of the mathematical modeling. A human being was always interested
in his future. The people have tried to forecast the future for ages. Now, in
the information epoch, the mathematical modeling plays the role of the prophet
whom the majority of people trust. It has already saved the mankind. Thus the
impact of the “nuclear winter” was forecasted by the computer modeling. It was
enough to discover the fact that the nuclear war will cause the qualitative
changes in the biosphere which exclude the possibility of the human being’s
staying on the Earth ( the ideas as to the quantitative impact of the “nuclear
winter” were published in the book of N. Moiseyev, V. V. Alexandrov, and A. M.
Tarko “The Human Being and Biosphere” in 1985 . They played the determinant
role in the decision to start the disarmament made by the governments of the
super-states. Now we have all reasons to say that we are close to the
ecological catastrophe . Thus the paper /3/ discusses 9 scenarios of the
development of the mankind in the future. Only two of them are optimistic. As
there is no hope for politicians, the forming of the Mankind’s Collective Mind
and based on it Planetary Civil Society is extremely necessary to develop the
collective will to quit wars, set the strategy of the co-evolution with
everything alive on the planet in the name of the existence if the human
being’s as a species.

Conclusions. So, we have a very efficient
mechanism to implement the evolution ideas into life. Besides, there is a group
of like-minded persons that includes many countries of the world, professionals
devoted to the ideas of the evolution ( let’s recall Plato’s words: “The ideas
rule the world”) and there are all reasons to continue to develop the virtual
community , put forward the ideas and form the future of the Planetary civil
society at the qualitatively new evolution circuit – the noosphere stage. It is
necessary to do it in the name of the future of the Earth planet. Our work in
this direction defines what we will pass to our children and grandchildren on.
This is a matter of principle.
As we agree with the opinions of
the scientists mentioned above we think that the establishment of the
institutions of the noosphere’s type ( educational, pedagogical etc.) is
necessary. These efforts are known to be made. May be they are called
differently, but they are like that , as a matter of fact. For example, we are
aware of the establishment of the Centre on training and bringing up of the
generation of a new type. This Centre is based on the Institute of Oriental Studies. It is not a single establishment of this type. We, ourselves, are ready to do
our best to develop the noosphere’s libraries ( we think that our electron
library belongs to them) and all projects which already exist or which appear
on both our domains and friendly ones having the same goals. We think that much
depends on the “art to create interrelations” (see /19/).
There are a lot of
initiatives to combine the efforts. We would like to mention that physical distances
sometimes are difficult to overcome. Thus the latest initiative of the Internet
portal RD “Vmeste” at the Far East is useful but illusive as hardly all
interested will be able to come there. The Internet solves the problem of
distance and we will be able to have virtual meetings ( it, certainly, doesn’t
exclude physical meetings) to discuss the ideas now. We shouldn’t wait for the
meeting which may not occur in the real life. For this there exist the RD
forums which now cover not only discussions but imply more integration which
allows to hope for more mutual understanding and feed-up in the name of the
To wrap up we would
like to cite the N. K. Roerich’s words: “Let the quality of the barest necessity
be our closest stimulus. We are responsible for the future generation! The
mankind is as responsible for the given planet as a gardener is responsible for
his garden. We can’t be fixed. We either move forward or step shamefully back. To
move forward means to create with the help of everything –activity and idea- using
all the materials and taking all chances, bringing light to all narrow lanes of
life. Each culture employee has only one enemy which is the dark homunculus of ignorance.
The ignorance was considered to be the worst crime even in the ancient times.
That is why the wish of every thinking person to live in the cultural country
is quite natural. But for this every thinking person is constantly to bring the
culture elements into both public and personal life. The wealth by itself doesn’t
mean culture. But the widening of thinking and its refinement as well as beauty
feeling bring the finesse, spirit nobility which differ the cultural person
from other people. It is this person who can build the bright future of his
country. He understands his holy responsibility and is aware of the necessity
of constant construction. Those who will bring the beauty torch will comprehend
the life of their relatives. The culture is, in its own way, the service for
the Light. And the Light is one and invisible” /20/.
