Annotation A feature of the modern world is the integration of social and virtual realities: the area of their correlation is being formed, in which the processes of human life activity take place. Biovirtual and sociovirtual specifics are acquired by a person and his activities, which determine new security threats that require their immediate removal. Traditional mental programs for successful adaptation to new conditions of life turned out to be unsuitable, not meeting the requirements of the time. This actualizes the study of changes in mentality, which forms stable behavior patterns that allow a person to respond in a timely manner to the challenges of the environment. In this regard, the purpose of the study is to identify and analyze the specifics of mentality changes under the influence of effects that arise in the field of correlation between social and virtual realities. We assume that the formation of a new type of mentality, capable of giving a worthy response to the challenges of our time, occurs under the influence of a system of effects that arise in the field of correlation between social and virtual realities. The study is based on the synthesis of philosophical concepts: the socio-cultural concept of mentality, the relationship between the natural and the social in society and man, artificial sociality and the BANI-world. The novelty of the study lies in: 1) identifying and analyzing the effects of the correlation of social and virtual realities as the driving forces of the dynamics of mentality (the effect of reality upgrade, hybridization of natural and artificial intelligence); 2) in revealing the essence of these effects and the mechanisms of their functioning; 3) in revealing new features of mentality (neosyncresis, blurring of meanings, imaginary transparency). As a result of the study, the processes of interaction between social and virtual realities are analyzed, which determine the features of the area of their correlation; the effects are revealed, the action of which is determined by the specifics of the structure and content of the area of correlation between social and virtual realities; the features of human mentality formed under the influence of the effects of the correlation of social and virtual realities are determined and characterized. The practical significance of the study is determined by the possibility of using the results in order to develop effective strategies for the activity of a person included in the area of correlation between the social and virtual worlds.
Key words mentality, social reality, virtual reality, dynamics, transformations, neosincresis, effects
