The Functionalist Approach to Sciences: A Paradigm Shift

The unicist approach to complexity science was developed to provide a methodology that is specific to deal with complex adaptive systems to avoid the extension of the use of methodologies that correspond to the field of researching systemic aspects of reality.

Before: Sciences were based on an empirical cause-effect approach that was functional in systemic environments but dysfunctional to deal with complex adaptive environments that have open boundaries and bi-univocal relationships among their components.

After: The unicist approach to sciences is based on a pragmatic, structuralist and functionalist framework that allows integrating the scientific approach to both complex and systemic environments. It subordinates the empirical approach to deal with operational aspects after the complex aspects have been managed using a unicist ontological approach. It integrates systemic sciences and complexity sciences in a unified field.

Example in Economics: The knowledge of the unicist ontogenetic maps allow defining the structural economic solution for an entity and the use of the technical-analytical tools allows defining and monitoring the operation.

Expanding the Boundaries of Sciences

As it is known, the management of complexity has been an unsolved challenge for sciences. This challenge was faced in 1976 by The Unicist Research Institute that was a pioneering organization in finding a structural solution for complexity without using artificial palliatives.

Complexity Science Research

The paradigm shift, based on the emulation of nature, was developed to solve the need of having reliable knowledge to deal with complex environments. It was provoked by the fallacy of considering empirically-justified knowledge as reliable knowledge.

It allowed managing complex environments as a unified field.

The paradigm shift was triggered by the need to understand complex adaptive systems. The shift implies having subordinated the empirical approach to sciences to a pragmatic, structuralist and functionalist approach to deal with complex environments that integrates, at an operational level, the preexisting empiricism.

This is a superior level in sciences that integrates complexity sciences with systemic sciences using the double-dialectical logic to emulate the ontogenetic intelligence of nature and using objects to emulate the organization of nature.

Lecture on the Unicist Theory of Functionality

This is an introduction to the Unicist Theory of Functionality, developed by Peter Belohlavek at The Unicist Research Institute, that introduced a simplification in the development of solutions in adaptive environments. It allows making a logical approach to the real world, developing the functional structures of solutions and the operational processes to make them happen.

The Unicist Theory of Functionality affirms and demonstrates that there is nothing in the universe, that is part of a system, that does not work with a purpose, an active and entropic function, and an energy conservation function. This triadic structure works through binary actions that produce the functionality of any entity or process, whatever its kind.

The following discoveries were the milestones of the development of the theory of functionality: complex systems research method (1980), functionality of human ontointelligence (1984), the ontogenetic intelligence of nature (1998), the unicist ontology of biological systems (2012) and the unicist ontology of wide and restricted contexts (2017).

This breakthrough provided the epistemological structure for functional knowledge that gave birth to functional design, binary actions, and the use of catalysts to expand the functionality of things.

XI International Unicist Conference – Nov. 21, 2020

The 4th Industrial Revolution and the COVID-19 are the two forces that require entering a new stage in the world that deals with adaptiveness and customer orientation.  In this scenario, the basics of the unicist ontological research method that allows managing adaptive environments will be presented in the XI International Conference. 

Unicist Conference

This conference also presents the innovative technologies that have been developed to manage adaptive processes, that became necessary due to the 4th Industrial Revolution and the crisis generated by the COVID-19. The use of the discovered binary actions, that materialize maximal and minimum strategies, simplifies the development of counter-cycles in the crisis generated by the coronavirus. 

The conference includes the presentation of the future scenarios that define the trends of the next stage and the short-term future to manage the conjuncture. This year, it includes aspects that deal with virtual collaboration in the business world that became a need due to the COVID-19.

The conference also honors developments of companies that are based on objects that implicitly emulate the organization of nature.

The purpose of the unicist conferences is to give access to information on the new scientific developments, in the field of complexity sciences, of The Unicist Research Institute for the community and to new technologies that were developed to make possible things that were not possible before. They provide new solutions that satisfy latent needs in plain language. They are homologous to medical conferences. 

The access to this new development happens in plain language to make it accessible to the participants. The objective is that the participants are able to access a new solution and profit from it.

The basic trend that sustains the conferences is fostering the approach to natural organization in business, to foster growth and optimize processes, which implies emulating the intelligence, organization and evolution of nature.

Research: The Unicist Theory integrates the Macrocosmos and the Microcosmos

An international research consortium is being organized to confirm the hypothesis that the unicist theory is the integrator of the macrocosmos and the microcosmos. The purpose of this theory is to provide a framework to forecast the evolution of adaptive entities considering their restricted and wide contexts.

The Unicist Theory explains the evolution and dynamics of complex adaptive entities, whether they are natural entities or artificial entities. This theory is based on the discovery of the triadic structure of the ontogenetic intelligence of nature, which drove to a universal application. Access a synthesis of the theory: https://www.unicist-school.org/complexity-sciences/unicist-theory/

This theory describes the universal structure of the unified field in nature that is applicable to all complex adaptive entities, whatever their kind. It needs to be considered that the unified field has a triadic structure that is homologous to the structure of the ontogenetic intelligence of nature. Unicist concept was the name given to this triadic structure.

The Macrocosmos

The structure of unicist concepts allows defining the structure of the evolution of nature (living beings), of the universe and of any complex adaptive system or environment. It emulates the functionality, dynamics and evolution of any adaptive environment, whatever its quality. Access the Unicist Library: https://www.unicist.com/flexpaper/flex-files/collection-unicist-r-and-d/unicist_ontology_evolution_en5_b/

The structures of the concepts define the positive potential energy that is implicit in the objects that integrate these concepts, which define the energy of the double dialectical actions that can be seen in the expansion of the universe and the gravitational force that sustains this expansion.

These two functions are homologous with the active and entropic function and the energy conservation function of the unicist evolutionary approach.

The Microcosmos

The credibility or functionality zone behaves like a “micro-cosmos”. Its functionality is compatible and homologous to what is known as quantum mechanics.
Access the Unicist Library: https://www.unicist.com/flexpaper/flex-files/general/wp_unicist_mechanics_en/

While the active function works as “waves”, the energy conservation function works as “particles”.

  1. A particle is an object which is sub-atomic and has a definite mass and charge.
  2. A wave is a disturbance that propagates through space and time, usually with transference of energy.

This implies that a given reality works as “waves and particles”.

Synthesis

The format of this research project fully depends on the participants of the research project. Until the end of this year, The Unicist Research Institute expects to find associates to integrate a physicist, a biologist, a mathematician and an epistemologist that have an extreme level of abstraction capacity and are active in this field or a homologous field. There will also be a group of volunteers participating in the destructive testing processes.

The Basics of Double Dialectical Actions (DDA)

Double Dialectical Behavior is natural and “automatic” in any complex adaptive system. The discovery of the structure of the concepts that underlies these systems allowed understanding how these double dialectical actions drive the evolution of these systems.

Examples:

  1. The actions of living beings deal with growth – survival
  2. The actions of human actions deal with efficacy – efficiency
  3. The actions of the evolution of the universe deal with expansion – gravitational force
  4. The actions of leadership deal with participation – power exertion
  5. The actions of aesthetics deal with desirability – harmony

These actions deal with the double dialectical logic that allows emulating the functionality, dynamics and evolution of adaptive systems or environments.

Its application to influence human behavior drove to the modeling of double dialectical actions which allow designing influential strategies to expand while developing the necessary actions to ensure survival.

DDAs are the necessary synchronic double dialectical actions that ensure results when dealing with adaptive systems. They are based on the management of the root causes of their functionality.

The Unicist Approach to Cosmology: The Evolution of the Universe

The structure of unicist concepts allows defining the structure of the evolution of nature (living beings), of the universe and of any complex adaptive system or environment. It emulates the functionality, dynamics and evolution of any adaptive environment whatever its quality.

The structures of the concepts define the positive potential energy that is implicit in the objects that integrate these concepts, which define the energy of the double dialectical actions that can be seen in the expansion of the universe and the gravitational force that sustains this expansion.

These two functions are homologous with the active and entropic function and the energy conservation function of the unicist evolutionary approach.

Concepts work as “dark matter/energy”, they cannot be seen, they can be inferred and measured based on their “consequences/effects”.

Someday, what underlies dark matter/energy will be known as the structures of concepts of “things” could be found and described using unicist ontological reverse engineering.

This confirmation is nothing new. It just clarifies the universality of the unicist conceptual approach. The management of the Unicist Standard Language gives you access to the management of the functionality, dynamics and evolution of adaptive environments.

The Unicist Research Institute does not enter the field of cosmology beyond the clarification of the laws of evolution, because we do not have the “capacity” to define or give opinions on the origin of the universe and are exclusively focused on influencing the evolution of adaptive environments and systems.

The consistency with the evolution of the universe is just “a proof” of the functionality of the unicist model that describes and defines the unified field of evolution.

This research was led by Peter Belohlavek at The Unicist Research Institute as part of the development of the Unicist Constructivist Framework that is applied to social, institutional, business and individual evolution.

Discovery of the Fallacies of Ethical Intelligence

Introduction

Multiple researches have been completed this year at The Unicist Research Institute after several years of application.

Complexity Science Research
The Unicist Research Institute has changed the paradigms of complexity science research.

It has to be considered that the unicist research in complex adaptive environments requires real application with parallel research processes that allow developing the destructive tests needed to confirm the functionality of knowledge. That is why these researches demand several years to be completed.

The most significant researches that were completed were the unicist ontological structure of: ethical fallacies, the ontogenesis of fallacies, functional knowledge, lies, pseudo-change and evolutionary constructivism.

Although these researches are for private use, those that contribute to the solution of universal problems are opened to the market. There is a backlog of 106 ongoing researches.

The Fallacies of Ethical Intelligence

The research on human fallacies has been completed. The discovery of the ethical intelligence fallacies and the ontogenesis of fallacies has been completed after 33 years of research. It began in 1986.

The perception fallacies, strategic intelligence fallacies, logical thinking fallacies and conceptual fallacies had been confirmed 15 years ago, but the ethical intelligence fallacies required more time to confirm the functionality until the behavior became fully predictable.

The level of ethics that is necessary to develop an activity needs to be matched with the level of ethics an individual has. When the level of ethics of an individual is below the required level of ethics, the individual loses her/his groundings, and fears dominate her/his actions.

The first natural response is to lie and the second is to generate the necessary fallacies to avoid the discomfort zone produced by fear.

The purpose of ethical fallacies is to establish a parallel reality that sustains an individual’s comfort zone and avoids guilt and fears. An example of this can be observed in the behavior of addicts.

This research confirmed the need to develop destructive testing as the solution to avoid fallacious actions in complex adaptive environments, and the “management of fears” as the solution to deal with complex problems.

In the social and business world, this simply requires ensuring that the participants in a decision process have the necessary knowledge and ethics to approach a specific problem.

This research will be presented in the XI International Unicist Conference in March 2020 as a contribution to manage the fallacies fostered by the uncertainty introduced by the 4th Industrial Revolution.

Functional Knowledge: Integrating Philosophy, Science and Action

The unicist evolutionary approach erased the barriers between philosophy, science and action to deal with reality as a unified field using the Unicist Logic (double dialectical logic).

It integrates

  1. The know-why of things, that cannot be contradictory with philosophy.
  2. The scientific approach to complex systems with open boundaries, that cannot be contradictory with empirical sciences.
  3. The know-how of things, that cannot be contradictory with operational cause-effect thinking.

This is a new “species” that was named “Complexity Sciences” which is based on a pragmatic, structuralist and functionalist framework that differs from the philosophical and empirical approaches to “things”.

It is based on the integration of Eastern and Western philosophies that requires using a superior abstraction and building a superior concretion.

It emulates the functionality of the ontogenetic intelligence of nature. It required integrating philosophy, sciences and actions in a unified field creating a new “species” of knowledge.

The resulting knowledge was named: Functional Knowledge. It is necessary to forecast and influence the evolution of adaptive environments which have, by definition, open boundaries. This approach allowed making possible what was not possible before (in terms of value generation in adaptive environments).

The Intrinsic Social and Business Catalyzing Process

One of the characteristics of value generation in complex adaptive systems, like cultures and businesses, is that only biunivocal processes can be catalyzed. Catalysis is needed to ensure the necessary energy threshold and functional synchronicity of the objects that integrate a complex adaptive system or environment.

Complex Adaptive Systems Functionality

Univocal social and business processes cannot be catalyzed. Univocity can be an intrinsic aspect of a process or the consequence of an extreme individualistic environment where the processes are “owned” by individuals instead of being part of a system.

The catalyst provides an energy saving function for these processes, which allows ensuring the generation of value within the necessary timing. This implies that the results are produced within the synchronicity that is needed to ensure the functionality of the adaptive system.

The system degrades when the actions within the adaptive system are focused on the processes instead of beginning with the action of the catalyst.

It has to be considered that the functionality of a complex adaptive system includes a gravitational force established by the wide context and a catalyst established by the restricted context which are redundant. This means that the catalyst replicates the aspects established in the wide context.

The integration of the process with the catalyst is what ensures the functionality of a complex adaptive system.
