Abstract : In recent studies we have multiply envisioned the irrationality of the traditional plasma kinetis~1-5. Its basic false cornerstone was shown to be the substitution of real plasmas by plasma probabilistic ensembles~1-3. We have created culture of plasma studies with refrain from an ensemble substitution~1-8. We discovered intense decay of Langmuir quanta, as opposite to traditional deduction of their conservation~1-3. The quanta decay prevents formation of Langmuir condensate in a weak Langmuir turbulence 1, Appendix, suppresses long-wavelength plasma modulational instability~3, precludes Langmuir wave collapses~1-3. Besides, it helped to highlight the uselessness of hydrodynamic modelling of plasma nonlinear phenomena 2-3, to state an inadequateness of modelling collisionless plasma by the Vlasov equation~3, to state of inadequateness of ``Particle in Cell- method of numerical plasma simulation to the plasma nature 3. Finally, it was shown that existed theory undervalued notably the intensity of induced scattering of short Langmuir waves 4 and distorted physics of the electron distribution evolution during this scattering 8. With this, an extensive revision of the plasma physics and of the theoretical physics in general are needed.
