Basic Ideas

The world happens to be material and cognizable. Miracles can happen, but are of no practical value. Evolution is interpreted as the self-organization of structures. Its first stage is the non-organic nature. The second one comprises biological systems - from a cell up to a herd with Target-oriented Functions (TF): metabolism, growth, reproduction, and protection of an individual, struggle and cooperation, integration into communities. TF manifest itself in needs and motives and is being realized through intellect. Intellect is the control system using models and signals. Its highest manifestation is creation, i.e. building of new models. Human being is a herd creature possessing of TF and creative intellect. It happened to convert a herd into community, generated technical progress and new TF- ideologies and launched the third social stage of evolution. It manifested itself in a variety of states, economic growth and continuous movement towards maturing of civilization - forming of mankind as a unified system. Technical evolution is intended to be the next stage of development founded on the basis of the artificial intellect, which can transform not only natural life, but also the very human being.Once I have developed my own approach to knowledge of biological systems: cell, organism, intellect, individual, society. It combines in itself a heuristic model and an investigation.

Working algorithm: 1. Choice of a hypothesis. 2. Making of a structural scheme. 3. Picking up of formulas and factors. 4. Computer assembling of a model. Adjusting of figures. 5. Model investigation in statics and dynamics. 6. Making experiments and analyzing of test and model results. 7. Putting corrections into both, the hypothesis and the model.

Every object was thoroughly investigated. Atthe department for biological cybernetics of the Glushkov institute there numbered about 50 employees Within 30 years there were defended 8 doctor and 26 candidate theses, as well as a number of research monographs and articles were written.

Nevertheless, I would not give the desired for the valid: our models reflected living systems with such a great degreeof generalization, that they were good only for understanding of functioningprinciples, but not for the practical usage, which requires deepen investigationsand more complicated models. But even they would remain probabilistic because it is impossible to model "living systems" self-organization. Though, without such models, the controlling would be blind at all.
