Dynamics of Ethnic Passionarity as a New Biological Phenomenon

Aleksandr Bukalov


Passionarity as a feature of ethnos discovered and described by L. Gumilev can be explained by the effect of ceased reproduction of inherited traits induced by cosmo-physical and geophysical factors after Z=50-60 consequential cycles of sex cells reproduction and functioning (embryogenesis), which corresponds to change of generations within 1250-1500 years. The cease of regular reproduction of somatic cells (Heiflik limit, N=50+/-10) can be regarded as an example of this phenomenon.
