What is the genesis?

Genesis is translated from Greek, literally means "origin." Today this term is used not in one, but in several meanings.

Genesis in geology

More, what is the genesis. First of all, in science, the genesis explains the origin of species, various metamorphoses, the development and formation of living organisms.

From the point of view of geology, genesis is the origin of all geological rocks, mineral deposits, anomalous forms of landscape arising under the condition of the geological influences of certain factors.

The calculation and explanation of the genesis of certain rocks is necessary for the rational direction of the search for minerals. Also with this, almost all geological theories are developed. Such as the theory of ore formation, the theory of the movement of soil masses and so on.

Genesis in philosophy

However, not only traditional science uses the concept - genesis. For example, many philosophical schools use the concept of genesis to track the birth, formation and development of all social and natural masses.Self-organizing, self-regulating and self-developing multi-level natural and social systems, since ancient times were explained by genesis.

The explanation of the genesis of natural and social being in modern science is also associated with the principles of global evolutionism.

The basis of the origin of species from species through various mutations, the totality of which is called evolution, is the genesis. From the point of view of modern evolutionary theory, this applies to absolutely all species, and not only to living organisms, as was previously thought. Genesis is inherent in both complex, multicellular organisms, and the simplest single-cell.
