In 1972, the club of Rome organized a comprehensive study of external planet's limits to growth. The study of the external limits was carried out using the classical model of the dynamic system. The image of the system, however, did not allow the exploration of the internal limits to growth. In this case, we are talking about the behavior and actions of people, about a possible gradual change in their consciousness and mind. These changes can have a significant impact on the sustainable development of human society. The results of systems trans-disciplinary modeling of the development of modern humankind after 2015 were presented in this paper. The need for regular broadening of the horizons of the scientific worldview is shown. A probable scenario of negative events in the society, possibly to take place in the immediate future due to insufficient education of people, is also described.
