"Куда идет мир? Каково будущее науки? Как "объять необъятное", получая образование - высшее, среднее, начальное? Как преодолеть "пропасть двух культур" - естественнонаучной и гуманитарной? Как создать и вырастить научную школу? Какова структура нашего познания? Как управлять риском? Можно ли с единой точки зрения взглянуть на проблемы математики и экономики, физики и психологии, компьютерных наук и географии, техники и философии?"

«SCALING IN MODELLING GLOBAL POPULATION GROWTH» 
Sergey P. Kapitza

Global population growth is described over practically the whole of human history by assuming self-similarity as the dynamic principle of development. Nonlinear growth is proportional to the square of the number of people due to a collective interaction of an informational nature. Estimates of the beginning of human development 4 – 5 million years ago and of the total number of people who have ever lived since then 100 billion are made. Large scale cycles, defined by history and anthropology, are shown to follow an exponential pattern of growth, culminating in the demographic transition. A veritable revolution, when global population growth is to stabilize at 10 – 12 billion in the foreseeable future.
