From the Book, The Essential Secret of the Jews, by M. Brushtein:
The Direction of Evolution
At some point, the above mentioned Academician Vernadsky described this topic very concretely:
Evolution of species transitions to the evolution of the biosphere. (1)
Academician V. Vernadsky gave this new stage of evolution a name:
“A new degree of the biosphere that we approach without even noticing it is called a noosphere.” (2)
A lot of time has elapsed since then. Sciences continued their development. The issue of evolution has tremendously advanced since then. It is quite easy to check it out. For that, it’s enough to find the newest official definition of evolution.
“Evolution – derives from Latin “evolutio” – deployment. …
In a broad sense, the term evolution denotes the way people cognize social and natural processes, their internal motivations, order and developmental patterns.
Evolution outlines a state of a system that undergoes certain modifications over time as compared to its prior state; it delineates results of the process of adaptation.
In a narrower sense of the word, evolution is a set of gradual, steady changes (as opposed to revolution.)” (3)
To be honest with you, I always had a difficult time with this definition as well as with any other definitions that I ever found in all sorts of dictionaries. This definition proves only one thing: evolution is the result of some changes or of our understanding of what these changes might be.
It makes room for despair! For billions of years this permanent process continues unfolding, but what do we know about it? Only that it goes on.
Of course, it is not an easy task to figure out when it started. However, we can at least determine where it is going and share our ideas on its possible directions.
Even a poet agrees with this concept:
“There is a history in all men’s lives,
Figuring the natures of the times deceased;
The which observed, a man may prophesy,
With a near aim, of the main chance of things
As yet not come to life, who in their seeds
And weak beginning lie in-treasured.
Such things become the hatch and brood of time;
And, by the necessary form of this,
King Richard might create a perfect guess
That great Northumberland, then false to him,
Would of that seed grow to a greater falseness;
Which should not find a ground to root upon…” (4)
And yet, I managed to find some information on this topic.
Dear scientists! Please pay attention to what contemporary scholars endorse: evolution is aimed at overall unity. Thus, science too proves this hypothesis.
“Irrespective of the multiplicity of life forms that are found on Earth, life per se is unity that is conditioned by the evolution of the Earth.” (5)
In the same source, scientists indirectly confirm the legitimacy of the notions that are described in this book. It’s already a good sign.
“Important conclusion: there is no such thing as ‘single,’ ‘absolute,’ or ‘perfect’ method of exploration of the evolutionary process.” (6)
That being said, I’d like to finish this chapter on an optimistic note. Things are not as confusing as they seem. Sometimes, in order to comprehend this idea, it’s enough to put away the microscope and look at things with the naked eye.
“Go and ask a botanist how many phases the fruit undergoes from the time it becomes visible until it is completely ripe. Not only do its preceding phases show no evidence of its sweet and fine-looking end, but as if to vex, they show the opposite of the final outcome.”
The sweeter the fruit is at its end, the bitterer and more unsightly it is in the earlier phases of its development.” (7)
