In this paper we consider the global historical process of formation of the international community with a single economic and political system. It is assumed that globalization, as well as many other historical processes, is not only progressive but also has a wave (cyclic) component, which describes the ups and downs of the cycles of civilization. An attempt to find practical significant association between the cosmic-natural and socio-political events, from the point of view of studying the cyclical components of the historical process, is taken. The article contains the relative outlook for developments in the coming half-century and analysis of the 23rd cycle of solar activity (1996 – 2008), as well as a forecast of political, economic and military events of 24-28 cycles (up to 2050), based on a fractal study of global dynamics.
KEYWORDS: historical process, solar activity, socio-political forecasting, cyclic development of civilization.
