A. V. KOGANOV (Moscow). "TOPOLOGICAL SENSE OF LINEAR RELATIVITY SPACE-TIME STRUCTURE". Apparatus of Inductor Spaces, which generalized the topology conception for asymmetric relations of points nearness, allowed to construct the special model of Space-Time (Conic Inductor Spaces), where the linear algebra is a consequence of topology structure, and Lorentz transformations are the full automorphism group. That model gives also new view on the problem of time irreversibility and on the nature of three-dimensional space. In that topology, the world line changing the time direct is losing the continuity. The three-dimensional space component is minimum dimension, in which the collapse in the model of quantum electrodynamics is not happening. (A.V.Koganov.

B. M. VLADIMIRSKY (Rostov-on-Don). "PHYSIOLOGICAL TIME IN BIORHYTHMIC RESEARCH". A need for the transition from the quantum-based analysis of bioelectrical activity to an event-oriented one, based on integral physiological and/or behavioral acts, is being elaborated. I.e., the use of physiological time in the solving of many rhythmological problems is being grounded. For physiological time an appropriate metric, relating it to some natural behavioral elements (events), is introduced, thus leading to physiological time measure units that may not have the same length in conventional astronomical time units. It seems that some regularities invisible within astronomical time-based descriptions, can be detected if a time model is used, in which physiological time stops when there are no changes in the process' state. Formalizing the notion of physiological time would let us move to a new level of the analysis and understanding of the rhythmological features of summary bioelectrical activity, which, in the long run, would enable the control of physiological time scales in the whole hierarchy of physiological systems and would lead to new approaches in the solving of a series of applied problems connected to the control and correction of functional state. The results of a physiological time-based analysis of spatio-temporal EEG structure are presented.

B. DRAGOVICH (Belgrad). "REAL, P-ADIC AND ADELIC TIME". It is well known that result of any measurement, including measurement of time, is represented by rational numbers. Starting from the set of rational numbers one can obtain real and p-adic numbers, which can unify with the help of adeles. Since 1987, many physical models have been constructed, whose space and time can be described not only by real numbers but also with p-adic numbers and adeles. One can expect that p-adic and adelic time play the essential role at the Planck scale (t~10-44 sec), and also can play a significant role in description of variation of some very complex natural systems. Study of p-adic and adelic time gives possibility to get some knowledge not only on the new forms of time realization, but also on better understanding of the concept of standard (real) time itself. Nowadays, it seems that time, as well as space and matter, are in fact adelic, but under some conditions may be described by real or p-adic numbers only. (B.Dragovich. Adelic Model of Harmonic Oscillator // Theoretical and Mathematical Physics. V.101. 1994; G.S. Djordjevic, B. Dragovich and Lj. Nesic. p-Adic and Adelic Free Relativistic Particle // Modern Physics Letters. A14. 1999. Pp. 317-325.)

F. I. MAVRIKIDI (Moscow). "NON-ARCHIMEDEAN WORLD: SPACE-TIME AND MOTIONS OF SYSTEMS". The existing essential difference between worlds of physical objects and system ones is reflected by system universe. The analysis of set theoretic nature of system world shows that the violation of Archimedes axiom implies a range of crucial discrepancies of mathematical nature of system from one of canonical physical objects. Selected for mathematical description non-archimedean (p-adic) mathematics allows to formulate elements of system physics in natural way, to make justification of hypotheses and heuristic claims, that are well-known in system science. The main conclusion of work is - system objects exist in non-archimedean space-time. It's description and basic properties are presented, parallels with eastern philosophy are pointed.

O. S. RASUMOVSKY (Novosibirsk). "IS TIME DELUSION OR REALITY?" Main matter of the lecture is problems of time's essence and its human reflection. It compares two extreme points of view: 1) time is perceptual and cognitive phenomenon; 2) time is physical and real phenomenon. It is possible that a substantion of time exists. This conclusion is based on the translations of Godel, Hao Wang, Yourgrau and other works and the latest works of Abian, Vejnik, Mamontov, Levich and others. Author develops approaches of Godel, Mc Taggert, Augustinus Sanctus and others. He suggests "Noumenal-phenomenal conception of time". According to it, the time doesn't exist as a physical phenomenon. There are matter, spiritual (ideal) and motion ones only. Time is the name (noumenon) for meaning of change generally. In this connection well-known Mc Taggert's rows are developed into model of A ... E rows. The last row is the development of logical time row (noumenon). Verity of Augustinus position is proved: only the (physical) present exists. Hearing this, the author based on interval approach and notion "con-temporarity" of system's existencia - in the boards of different hierarchias.

A. A. SILIN (Moscow). "IS THE TIME BEING A PHENOMENON OR A NOUMENON?" Kant's dilemma as the result of an artificial alimentation of a cogniting subject from a principle uncognited object. The objective Newton's-Spinoza's world being cognited by the subject and congealed in the absolute and reversible time. A merging the subject and object in the quantum mechanics. The ideal and material realities at their unity. The development of idea, and transition from the physics of being to the one of becoming. Teiar de Sharden's theory of the non-stop evolution from the simple to the complicate. Unlinearity and the irreversible time in synergetics. The principle "Not a step back". The time as an integrated flow of the events in their movement and development. Accelerated and purposeful selfcreation of the being, which is cogniting itself in the space-time. A contradiction nature of mind as the radical cause of the future uncertainty. The outside time nature of mind as the way to the practical immortality of a person. Could the mind phenomenon slow down a rate of the local time?

V. V. GUTIN (Perm'). "THE PHYSICAL FOUNDATION OF THE AUTOREFERENTAL CONCEPT OF TIME". The physical foundation of the formerly offered autoreferent concept of time is reviewed. As it is known, foundation of the energy conservation law is the property of homogeneity of time which one allows to make operation, called shift of time. A starting point of the foundation is the analysis of operation of temporal shifts in the past and in the future (T-invariant shift of time). The algebra of T-invariant temporal shifts is found. The approaches determining concept of a temporal gauge field are formulated.

S. V. SMELYAKOV (Khar'kov). "AURIC SCALE OF EVOLUTIONAL TIME AND PERIODS" (PDF file, 362 Kb). A synchronism between the planetary revolution periods and average periods of 11-year Solar activity cycles engenders a discrete-continual model of Time; it might be presented as a spiral of evolutional epochs (or periods) which are distributed, on the global level as the terms of geometrical progression and, on the local level as manifest themselves in compliance with a conventional concept of harmonic time. Namely, the synchronism between the 14 bifurcation points (over 13 millenniums) specified by this model and global phenomena in the evolution of the Earth and known civilizations indicates "acceleration" of time in the sense of intensification of events; meanwhile, coincidence of discrete values engendered by this model with the periods of the basic periods in nature and society allows us to consider it as the universal scale of periods. The provided verification allows us to consider this Scale as presenting new approach to philosophical understanding of Time and to forecasting global trends in geophysical processes and society. (S.
