Discussed is the problem, concerning development of person and society along the path ordained from above. The authors stand on the position that only through social contact, communication and cooperation in the spirit of hope for a happy future, a person and humanity will be able to achieve their true purpose and greatness, become a society of love and harmony, where in their relations there will be no sign of violence and anxiety for the future. The authors note that it is the act of social interaction (social contact), based on principles of love, trust, understanding, and consent, that can change both a person and the whole society. Despite the most difficult situation associated with the pandemic and long-term self-isolation, the spirit of social unity, the desire to strengthen social contacts, and support one’s closest people who have fallen into a difficult life situation, has manifested itself in the Russian community.

Key words: contact, social contact, adaptation, adaptive capabilities of a person, self-isolation, communication, contemporary art.
