Quasi-spontaneous variations of the physical parameters

© Rokityansky I.I.

Quasispontaneous variations are variations which look like spontaneous ones but really are stimulated by an informational influence. Informational influence is an influence, the material carrier of which is not identified; then the physical essence of the phenomenon is not understood. The russian astrophysisist N. A. Kozyrev (1908-1983) gave evidence that if in a system entropy increases and organization decreases, the latter one is not lost (as accepted in thermodynamics, and which leads to conclusion about «thermal death») but is eradiated as a stream of negentropy, or organization (let us call it Z-radiation). The latter removes itself to be absorbed by some other system(s) to stimulate processes of selforganization and development therein. The sources of Z-radiation (=informational influence) are any systems where irreversible processes occur and entropy increases. Strong sources are: Sun (Z-radiation in many cases pass ahead of the corresponding active objects appearance on the Sun surface), cosmic events, geodynamic and atmospheric processes, preparation and realisation of earthquakes, technical processes, energetics, vital activity of biosphere, human beings and so on. Sensors of Z-radiation are any sufficiently selforganized system that noticeably changes its characteristics when entropy changes. Sensors proved their efficiency are: torsion pendulums, quartz and atomic frequency (time) standards, resistors, velocity and some peculiarities of quasi-spontaneous processes (radioactive decay, chemical reactions...). The sensors can be set for geophysical monitoring of Z-radiation which, as it is expected, can give data for prognosis of dangerous natural and technical hazards, prognosis of time intervals favourable and unfavourable for human health, for biospheric and technological processes.
