Summary/Abstract: Since the origin of mankind, every living person has tried to the best of his abilities to comprehend his presence in the world around. The question, around which, in one way or another, the topic of evolution centres. All this time, apparently not really successful attempts to create a unified worldview have not stopped. The complexity of the problem lies in the fact that, while solving, it is necessary to understand a complex of interconnected intricate problems. Among them there are answers to the following questions: which principles define the evolutionary processes; how can appear and on what principles can function such an apparatus as the brain; how can this apparatus-self-identify in its own environment, how it interacts with it; how appear and on what principles from its social relations with the ones of its kind? Afterward, there inevitably appears a necessity to thoroughly consider at least two more topics — the appearance of metrology and terminology as the tools of self-identification and mutual understanding, their possibilities and limits of application.Solving of these tasks gives a rather definite base for rational correction of all the fundamental created by the mankind in the sphere of the theoretical underpinning of all things, gives an opportunity to select reliable schemes to forecast the future of the mankind.In the format of an article, it is complicated to consider the whole complex of tasks, one can only briefly mark some of the main provisions and conclusions, formulate as far as possible the basic provision, on the basis of which an attempt to build a rather equivalent reality of the world order is conducted.Below follows a detailed description of the effects of two quite interesting regularities that underlie evolutionary processes. The first regularity is the paradox that any single, accidental, and indefinitely small interaction in a system becomes a precedent and inevitably enhances the likelihood of further interactions resulting in a variety of new emerging components in the system. The second regularity is that the speed of interactions in any limited and isolated zone of the system precipitously increases and multiply outstrips what is happening in the system itself.
