Summary/Abstract: The XXIst century offers us the new rules of existentialism. The conflicts of the civilizations are uncovered. A human is in the process of looking for the ways to be in harmony with the outer world. The fastest development of the digital technologies helped the society to pass to the new cultural stage. According to his nature, a human has to exist in this or that kind of a sociaty. So, he is forced to find an existentialistic fulcrum. This “prop” is still found in the standards formed and developed by the cultural forms typical to the given society. According to Nietzsche, the “Transformation of the Spirit” is possible and we must accept and understand it as a concept equal to the current global changes in the cultural sphere. There is no development without changes and transformation; in every concrete case, as a major characteristics, we must consider the perception and freedom of a human. And the progress or development is determined by the changes of the attitude to the universe and understanding of the reality, the methods of perception, and limitless freedom. The culture-related space is understood and imagined as the variety of the interrelation of an economic, social, political, and spiritual expression; consequently, all the above-mentioned forms of human expressions are joined by the perception of the verity, outer world, and the nature of the human. It has been often pointed out to the fact that the culture-related phenomenon includes the following triad: a human – objectively existent world – absolute world. It must be clear that the given trichotomy can’t be universal but it certainly has the right to exist.
