When can man help the planet? Paradigms of V. I. Vernadsky and I. T. Frolov

Most of the prognostic ideas are expressed in cosmology. And this is understandable: the radius of coverage of the universe approaches its own radius, if the imaginary leg of the compass is combined with the position of the observer. In other words, the higher the observation vertical, the larger the viewing horizon. This is the first point of our reasoning. The second thesis concerns the possibility of a qualitative measurement of such a vertical, which allows us to look beyond the horizon studied by science. In other words, you will not change the worldview — you will not catch the change in the structure of the object of study. And the third thesis is about the observer himself, about the properties of his mind. Why does a scientist, engaged in prognostics, trust his mind, even if the new picture of the world revealed to him contradicts the previously formed one? It's as if the universe itself is confirming his hunch. In other words, when a scientist explores the cosmos (or the universe), there is a mutual enrichment their creativity. We already call such a scientist a thinker.
