Turbulence zone

Half a century after Elvin Toffler’s “Future Shock,” various sales managers discovered that we had stumbled into the turbulent flow of V.U.C.A. – instability, insignificance, complexity and ambiguity.
It is important to note that situations of turbulence are periodic phases in the development of human culture. And the stench stems from the cultural activity itself. Thus, the spirit of importance and thoroughness in the Renaissance era is replaced by the turbulent whirlwinds of the Baroque. If previously “turbulence” in culture was defined as “crisis” or “transitional” periods, with their space-hour boundaries, now the state of turbulence claims to be boundless. A long-standing curse: “May you be alive in the era of change!” loses its sense, since other eras, eras of stability, have not been transferred to current culture, and the “exit” from the zone of turbulence is considered to be in the form of a catastrophe that will end human life as a whole. The unity and continuity of the private and the private enter the most secure phase of rizik. The terminology requires radical features of project modeling in the minds of permanent changes that will accelerate in geometric progression.
One of these features was mysticism, for any robot with secret relationships, lively, dynamic, and constantly engaged in daily tasks. In the turbulence zone, the values of this function approach infinity.

Again and again we are called upon to marvel at the essence of social problems through the specific and universal optics of mysticism.
We understand that at the border where the hermeticity of the audience of current mystique, the birth of post-industrial marriage, is becoming unbearable.
The Odesa Biennale of current mystique now poses to artists a problem of a global nature, which, in the opinion of many authoritative specialists, is one of the signs of provincialism and marginality.
However, in the era of fundamental crises, and even more so – crises of fundamentality – the true outlines of the new often appeared in the margins of canonical texts, on the cordons that melted in the fire of innovation.
