Theory of systems in the philosophy of dialectical dualizm.
Summary of the concept:
The main idea of the philosophy of dialectical dualizm (DD) consists in the assumption of equivalence of dialectical origins in every phenomenon / process / object. DD-comprehension of reality is based on two dualist hierarchies: objective reality - subjective reality, and distinguishable reality - non-distinguishable reality. In such consideration, reality described by laws of dialectic includes four parts: matter (indistinguishable objective reality), spirit (distinguishable objective reality), emotion (distinguishable subjective reality) and ratio (indistinguishable subjective reality). System is defined as a complex of elements of reality. Subsystem is defined as a system consisting of such elements that all belong to another system (supersystem). Level of the system is defined as defined as a level of motion (evolution, change) of a significant part of elements of the system. Main level of the system is defined as the upper level of the system. Independent system is defined as a system, main level of which is the same (or upper) that the main level of the supersystem. Autonomous system is defined as such an independent system, inside which no independent system is found. Several properties of autonomous systems: 1) they can be observers (persons, individuals); 2) they can reproduce themselves; 3) they consume resources of their supersystems and change them; 4) law of dilution and change of resources: with time, resources consumed by an autonomous system are diluted, then the system has three option: death, change of resources or change of itels; 5) law of repetition: in self-reproduction, the secondary autonomous system repeats all stages of evolution of the primary system, but in accelerated regime. Sociological application: a sequence of the law of repetition - when an economic formation changes, the new formation repeats all stages of evolution of the previous formation. E.g., feudalic formation consisted of two stages (slaveric and feudalic), capitalist - three stages (slaveric, feudalic and capitalist), socialist - 4 stages (slaveric, feudalic, capitalist and socialist). Socialist formation started about 1930 by slaveric stage, about 1950 - change for feudalic stage, about 1980 - change for capitalist stage. Principle of dualizm imposes equivalence of economy and policy. While economy is defined as the complex of society's technique of interaction with the environment, policy is defined as the system of relations of society members. There is a relative correlation between economy and policy: slavery (and slaveric stages of all formations) is favorable for repressive totalitarism, feudalism (and related stages) - to administrative totalitarism, capitalism - to initial democracy, developed socialism (just hypothetical) - to developed democracy. Social harmony is result of conformity of economy and policy. Policy has several inertion and does not change automatically with economic formations (and their stages). Non-conformity of economy and policy causes social crisis.
There are two kind of social crisis: 1 - when economy (or economic stage) does not satisfy technical needs, and 2 - because of non-conformity of economy and policy. For XX century, the following critical situations are found: end of years 1920 - crisis of 1st kind leading to replacement of developed capitalism with slaveric stage of socialism, crisis of 2nd kind (about 1930-1935) - only for democratic states - because of their non-conformity to the slaveric stage of socialism, crisis of 2nd kind (1950-1980, only for democratic states) - because of non-conformity to feudalic stage of socialism, crisis of 2nd kind (since 1980) - only for totalitarian states, because of their non-conformity to the capitalist stage of socialism. All conflicts of democracy and totalitarism are characterized by 8-years cycles of evolution.
Arab-Israel crisis is considered as the conflict between initial democracy in Israel and Arabian totalitarism. Peaks of conflict: 1991 and 1999. New peak expected for 2007.
Other applications of DD: natural scinces - theory of Big Bang as result of self-organization of exterior Cosmos; beginning of life - as result of self-organization of mineral nature.

Perspectives of application of DD-theory of systems: 1) Natural sciences: new theory of field, theory of torsio interactions. 2) Social sciences: analysis of the perspective of democratic revolution in Arab states. 3) Social sciences: preparation of constitution for Israeli state.
