Y = Arctg X; the hyperbola of the world order.
Univ. Press of America
The mathematical formula y = arctg x describes a hyperbola with near zero initial curve, gradually moving to a period of explosive growth, and moving back to symmetrically reverse near zero curve at the end. For Ostrovsky (a PhD candidate and librarian at Hebrew U. of Jerusalem, Israel) this hyperbola aptly describes a corresponding and inexorably determined movement of the world from prehistory to history to unified world/planetary history. He derives this theory from comparison of the political systems of Ancient Egypt versus Mesopotamian city-states and China versus the Mediterranean during the Axial Age, and developing a theory of the agricultural foundations of the state that he sees as applicable to any political system. The theory leads him to conclude that the world is inevitably headed for a one-world state dominated by the United States or perhaps some other power.
