Authors: Alexander Bolonkin
A human life is special. It may turn this or that way and put you on trial. Unfortunately, young people very often make the same mistakes their parents did. That is why if we have a look at biographies of senior people – especially those ones who lived unusual lives and had very special destinies – it may help us to avoid many mistakes, delusions, wrong decisions and deceit. Of course, political powers, authorities, regimes and social situation constantly change, but there are some vital general basics always remaining in a human society and they are quite necessary to be realized and understood for an individual to survive and not to repeat stupid mistakes of older generations. This is the prime and important goal of this book. The author of this book is a researcher. A main goal of any true researcher is impartial and comprehensive investigation of the reality, discovering its laws and building models of nature, environment, human and society behavior. These laws help to predict human and environment reaction to our activity, and consequently, achieve required results and make all human progress move forward. The most important feature of a true researcher is the ability to change (or revise) his opinions, conclusions and regulations in case the reality response does not coincide with his theories and forecasts. The author worked a lot for Soviet aviation, rocket and space industries and in research labs of the NASA and USAir Force. He was not much interested in minor routine technical problems which were again and again to be solved by engineers and scientists in the course of projecting, designing and final operational development of some spacecraft or rocket, and which he was supposed to deal with by virtue of office. His spare time was devoted, first of all to breakthrough technologies of the future which would make mankind leap to a new stage of technological progress. Some of these technologies suggested by the author are understandably expounded in a special Appendix to this book (Breakthrough to the Future) Besides current and future problems of aviation, astronautics, energy, breakthrough technologies of the future he devoted a lot of time to the purpose of existence and to the future of mankind, or more exactly to the future of Intellect and Universe. The Self-copying System Complexity Increase law discovered by Alexander Bolonkin explains not only beginnings of Homo Sapience on Earth, but also its inevitable transition into E-creatures and to Superior Intellect (to God, as true believers would say), to a total control by its Universe laws and creation of new Universes with new life. All these ideas are compactly and plainly expounded in a special chapter of this book (Pondering on Life, Progress, Mankind and Science) so that a reader uninterested in these problems may just skip this section.
