Comes the understanding that in principle the basis of the model is its usefulness. And to be specifically, the most benefit. Because utility tells us only about the positive results, and the benefits of the relation of benefit and cost. Coming from work, you probably will not use the most complete model of your home, but only the one which indicates the minimum path to the bed. The result is "important thing is not where we look, but what we see" John Deniskar adopting for themselves a representation of the world, it fundamentally changes not only evaluate their own behavior, but and understanding the behavior of others (for each person in the head contains a lot of models, which in principle and create a personality). On this basis, we can define a set of practical conclusions.

Some of them we consider in this section. Do not assume that your knowledge is of course the only true. Even the scientific community accepts fallibilizm as a phenomenon. Many models explain the same thing in different ways. It was the presence of choice and the most promising the right decision.

You should not become attached to the model too much, because maybe in the future you have a chance to change it to more advanced. The more models you know, the more prospects to choose from. The more models of one subject, the more generalized or your opinion on it. Each model must be tested for adequacy. When choosing a model from a set, you need to evaluate the usefulness of each. The more the model of the facts, so it is objective. And so is adequate and useful in a particular area. As a conclusion, "The true essence of things – a profound illusion" is appropriate to recall the first quotation in this article: "Wisdom not counted the number of years lived, and the number of dead illusions. " I hope this article will help you not just to "kill" another illusion – the illusion of reality, but also to understand the mechanism of obtaining wisdom.

The Development Of Modern Astronomy

The concept of a stationary universe put forward in 1948, Bondi, T. Gold and F. Hoyle. The requirement that the characteristics of the universe in both space and time means that its density, despite the expansion should be constant, and therefore must be continually arise a new substance. "For twenty years – spoke bitterly in 1968, Fred Hoyle, – I have never been able to make my fellow astronomers to understand what is said in this theory – in part, undoubtedly due to the uncertainty of my presentation, but partly also because of the emotional atmosphere, which, unfortunately, has always prevented the discussion of the theory. " Indeed, most physicists and astronomers still refer to the concept of a stationary universe sharply hostile against her, apparently, they say, and observational data.

However, the beauty of this theory is undeniable. Eternally renovating the universe is infinite in time and space, there are no special points (singularity) to replace the fallen stars are coming more and more … Model of the observable universe Einstein – Friedmann, based on general relativity, allow for two types of solutions. According to the first, the expansion The universe will continue indefinitely. In the second version of the expansion is slowed down more and finally replaced by contraction, the red shift will change from blue, first close and then in more distant galaxies. It is possible that after the "singularity" – the state of extremely high density – again to start the expansion. The space in this embodiment, of course, though infinitely – you can not get out of it, finite volume of the universe, of course number of galaxies and elementary particles in it.
