M. S. Rubin
Principle of integration in International TRIZ Association
Is it essentially possible and is it necessary to unite the TRIZ specialists? …It is inadmissible that a TRIZ specialist from one continent should cease to understand a TRIZ specialist from another continent… Without claiming the unique character of this unification, IA TRIZ remains the most multi-sided and organized social organization within the frame of TRIZ movement.
TRIZ FORECASTS. FUTURE OF OUR PLANET

In harmony with nature
… We don’t yet understand clearly that the trends of self-organization and self-development are all-pervading and indestructible.
An example is the natural phenomenon “Self-synchronizing of revolving bodies” (rotors)”. It appears that if the revolving bodies are installed on one and the same base, they begin to get mutually self-attuned (synchronized) and do it without any auxiliary devices. Based on this phenomenon, an entire class of new vibration devices has been developed – conveyers, feeders, mills, flotation machines …
Salvador Dali advised his disciples: “Don’t be afraid of perfection, you’ll never be able to attain it”.
…The following conclusion can be drawn from the above: the trend
of increasing ideality is the way of approaching nature… The more effectively humanity will use its creative potential for the development of technology and equipment, the quicker it will be destroyed by humanity.
