What is the science? What have people instead of, and why do we need corrosiology?

  • V. M. Novakovskii


People need a science comprehending both their and its own destination, universal, far-seeing, harmonizing the whole biosphere, and preventing from mistakes. It was such a science, Ya.M. Kolotyrkin has dreamt about, and such was its own ancient trend. However,... Having substantially accelerated its development and pragmatized it, the industrial revolution split it into a handy set of narrow-seeing weakly bound branches, and thus deprived them of panoramic sight and ability to distinguish between the essence and illusion. At first sight, everything is OK (especially after the Scientific-technological revolution that has illusively conquered crises): the science finds mineral deposits, discovers the ways of and teaches how to make something of them, invents and develops everything that fills our everyday life, serves and substitutes for us in industry, joins the continents, and so on. But in essence... this is the shortest way to the hell for our children’s children. We do pave it ourselves by exhausting the mines and wells so as if the mineral resources, which were created by the Supreme Intelligence (by means of the numerous past biospheres for billions of years!), do not have a price that hundreds and thousands times exceeds the market cost of everything we produce of them. By means of a thorough analysis, unbreakable semantic definitions of the basic triad of scientific categories Life, Science, and Verity are clarified. As an example of the quality of theories that are still in use, absolutely feebleness of the S. Arrhenius concept of electrolytic dissociation (which has stopped the development of electrochemistry for more than a century) is shown. The reunion and closest cooperation between the science and Church is the last chance for the man to get the True Science and Life!
