Abstract: The problem of the evolution of the surrounding world is one of the most important issues for science in general and has been exercising the minds of scientists over several thousand years. In the opinion of the author of this article, one of the reasons is that science has not disclosed thus far the constructive function of water in the formation of the Earth’s external envelopes, which was determined by its antagonistic contradiction with basalts and, later, simple products of photosynthesis. Nonequilibrium is the main factor of all evolutionary processes, which ensures the creation of new environmentally equilibrium formations, including more complex ones. However, the water cycle, which determines the ingress of new portions of water into the system, continuously, violating equilibrium, produces additional complications, leading to the acceleration of the evolution of V.I. Vernadsky’s “water‒rock‒gas‒organic matter (living and nonliving)” system. Water provides for unity in the behavior of inert and living matter.
