It was believed that a single human’s effort could not have a significant impact on the course of history, that an individual’s activity did not affect social processes. Development could only be progressive, without any alternatives. Moreover, it was believed that the past could be of historical interest only, and any return to the past had some new basis. As for alternatives, they might only be occasional deviations from the mainstream, being subject to it. The picture of the world, drawn by the classical mind, represented it rigidly connected by cause-and-effect relationships, being dependent on neither small effects at the lower levels of existence nor small influences from space.
On the progressive line of the evolutionary series, the diversity, number of types of structural units—different representatives of the levels—increases. Given the variety of species is due to their information content, it can be concluded that the amount of information increases with the transition from the lowest level of the evolutionary series to its highest level. The diversity of species is closely linked to the information content of the structural unit of the step. The greater the amount of information in a structural unit, the larger the number of combinations which its components may provide; hence, the greatest possible types of structural elements of the step are possibly generated.
In the latter cases, order increases with decreasing temperature: a fluid is converted into a solid with decreasing temperature, the spins of individual atoms can be arranged to form ordered structures characteristic of ferromagnetic or antiferromagnetic materials, the transition to the state characteristic of the phenomenon of superconductivity can occur in metals. The nature of equilibrium phase transitions and that of self-organization effects in open systems are obviously different. But there exists a profound analogy between these phenomena: in both cases there is a process of restructuring or the emergence of order, if the latter is understood as symmetry breaking.
