The paper dwells on the meaning of the concept of virtual ontology, which is actually an extension of the concept of an algebraic system. There are two ways to generalize the concept of an algebraic system. The first one is to add probabilistic principles governing the spectrum of admissible states of a virtual system into the signature, and the second one is to shift from the reductionist approach towards holistic principles of its structure. Further, the temporal parameterization of such ontologies allows introducing the concept of an actualized world, i.e. ontologies with a mobile “present” time dividing it into history and a probable future. If by “deterministic laws” of this actualized world we mean computable functions from its signature, then we will get a class of ontologies combining probabilistic and deterministic forms of order, which allow us to model the formation and functioning of any rational processes
