It has been deduced from biological processes that life and human growth follow a logarithmic scale. This deduction is based on several observations. For example, the gestation period is 10 lunar months, the period of childhood is 100 lunar months, and the full span of life averages 1000 lunar months. A similar logarithmic scale may be used to measure the growth of biological cells as well as civilizations. According to this logarithmic law, the speed of the growth is at its maximum at the start. It follows a pattern similar to that of the exponential growth of “grains of rice on the chessboard,” i.e., doubling its growth measure at a given time period. Then, it becomes slower and slower, before it reaches its saturation and ultimate decay. However, before it reaches its decay, a new growth cycle is initiated within its predecessor. And this new cycle provides means that allows overcoming its predecessor’s limitations and directing the development into a new direction.
