As a kind of perceptual sign of human spiritual dynamics and civilization height, “contemporary art” does not pursue the performing “sense of existence” under the spotlight, but leads to civilization and seeks its own “sense of belonging” through the current spiritual practice and exploration of the living noumenon of art — human— to the daily life world. Criticizing and deconstructing the traditional purist view of art, rejecting art for art’s sake, and promoting “art noumenon” to “existence noumenon” — value significance of Karl Popper’s so-called “Three Worlds”, which are mutually dependent and promoting, mutually opposite and complementary, has been historically awakened and highlighted. Among them, “world two (experiencing world)”, which is characterized by human spiritual practice and behavior experience, has the most life significance and artistic value “from culture to civilization”. Define contemporary art from five key points combined with world two: reflecting the daily state of consciousness or mental state of human and society; highlighting the behavior, interaction, recognition of spiritual activities, and the everydayness of the effect on three worlds; an existing way of perceptually mastering the world; a symbol of apperception, personification, and living humanity world; and an artistic and dynamic world of connecting and driving the three worlds. Its fundamental logic is that: experience is cognition, that is, the continuous unity and dynamic unity of expression; it is the highest belonging and value conversion of culture leading to civilization; it is the true art that pursues truth, discovers possibility and highlights human nature.

The article attempts to recreate the process of organizational development of the Luhansk eparchy of the Ukrainian Orthodox Autocephalous Synodal Church of 1922-1936. It was found out that due to the conditions of aggravation of confessional division the representatives of the renewal movement managed to minimize their reformation provisions during 1926-1928. The Synodal Church managed to stabilize the institutional crisis. With the appointment of Bishop Veniamin to a vacant for a long time throne, with the active support of local authorities, the Luhansk diocese has reached its greatest development, covering in its structure about a quarter of the Orthodox communities of the district. It is determined that since the Ukrainian-centric ideological principles of the Synodal Church were not fully embodied in the practical activities of the renewal clergy, the emergence of the Conciliar Episcopal Church as a relatively canonical alternative Reformation denomination of Ukrainian Orthodoxy became relevant in Ukraine. In particular, in the Luhansk region, as a result of the unconstructive methods of Bishop’s Photius (Topiro) governing, it was the local diocese of the UCEC that became a refuge for the renewal communities, almost doubling the number of its own parishes during 1928-1929. It is proved that the development of the Synodal Church in the Luhansk region was marked by the lack of an effective system of government, the low discipline of the clergy, and especially given the change in state policy in the field of religion. The historical circumstances of the confessional division of Ukrainian Orthodoxy in the interwar period on the example of a separate region are highlighted. Further research on this topic requires clarification of a number of ethnocultural, political, linguistic, and canonical issues of local renewal communities, which will expand the understanding of the religious worldview of the local population and propose new conceptual approaches to overcoming church divisions.

The telecommunications sector entered the new millennium with a new paradigm, defined in four terms: mobile and global in nature, private, competitive and with interests in different sectors. Within this framework, the research presented here addresses the new cycle in Telefónica's internationalisation and the intricate investment process in Spanish telecommunications. The text is structured in four main sections, comprising an overview of Telefónica in the world market, Telefónica's entry into Central Europe with Český Telecom, the entry into unexplored European markets with O2 and the penetration of subjectively distant markets - China.
