A real possibility to realize a “new dialogue with Nature” (after I. Prigogine and I. Stengers) is discussed. It is shown that a phenomenological approach which may be called Flicker-Noise Spectroscopy presents an attempt to give positive answers to these general questions: What type of general phenomenological information is actually contained in signals (time series or “spatial series” if spatial structures are studied) coming from complex natural systems of different content, and what is the physical meaning of this hidden information? What tools and methods allow anyone to extract this information in a correct way and in a desirable quantity? © 2000 American Institute of Physics.
