Mr. Herman Van Rompuy
Council of the European Union
RE: Project of the Century
Dear Mr. Van Rompuy,
Now that you have been elected President of the European
Council and is thinking over the main directions of its policy, you would possibly be interested in the scientific recommendation
in this respect stated below.
As facts suggest, civilization is experiencing a
general ideological crisis, which manifests itself now in local and social conflicts, now in terrorist acts, now in economical
disturbances, and now again in a growing confrontation between the East and the West. Under the present circumstances, the
crisis will develop and, unless the proper measures are taken, will eventually bring civilization to its ruin. Europe, the
traditional spiritual center of civilization, has supposedly to play the main part in reversing this trend.
As an analysis shows, underlying this general crisis is the contradiction between the high level
of present technological achievements, especially in transportation, communications and information technology, uniting the
whole world and implying the necessity for the corresponding form of its global organization, on the one hand, and the currently
dominating outdated forms of organization based on private interests, nationalist and sectarian ideologies which are generally
hostile to higher forms of communal organization, the more so to globalization.
our time of science, it is only science that could find the proper form of global organization and enlighten people to accept
it. However, at present modern science is itself experiencing a deep crisis and is not up to the job. Moreover, paradoxical
as it is, modern science presents now the main threat to society and should be reformed and organized first. Thus
the principal, strategic and vital challenge the world is facing now is to reform modern science.
Although the reform of modern science is certainly quite a task in itself, fortunately, there
exists now a blueprint for such a reform: this is my 30-year-long independent research initiating the reform
of modern physics and blazing a trail to the reform of modern science in general including humanities, the science of
politics, in particular. To perform such a reform, it is necessary to establish An International Center of Reform
Science, or something like that. This issue is elaborated in the leaflet Project of the Century attached. The realization of this project should now become the main
concern of the European Union.
In this connection would you please convene an international conference
or take some other measures to promote that vital for Europe and civilization project. I could make a report on the research
and all the relevant issues, if necessary. Please, see additional information below.
