About the Think Tanks

The Unicist Standard for Adaptive System ResearchThink Tanks are small autonomous organizations, organized by industry, that use the technology provided by The Unicist Research Institute to manage complexity. Unicist is in charge of the quality assurance of the R&D process. Each Think Tank is organized based on the type of industry.

There are four types of Think Tanks

1) For Basic Sciences
2) For Future Research
3) For Social/Economic Long-term Planning
4) For Unicist Spin-off Implementation

Think Tanks are integrated by Doers

The research on human complex adaptive systems cannot be done through artificial experiments or simulations. It has to be developed in an environment of real action. In the unicist approach doing and researching are integrated in a unified field. That is why only “doers” can research the field of complex adaptive processes. Observers can only rationalize them.

Complexity Science Research

Complexity Sciences are defined as the scientific approach to deal with adaptive systems considering them as a unified field. The critical masses of all the interdependent elements included in the unified field of an adaptive system define its functionality. The unicist approach to complexity sciences integrates ontology, science and actions in a unified field.

Adaptive Technologies for Businesses

The available IT technologies made the development of adaptive systems meaningful. The objective of building adaptive systems is to integrate software, hardware and peopleware in adaptive work or business processes to assure the quality of the results produced.

The Unicist Theory changed the paradigms of the scientific approach to complexity

The Unicist Theory, developed by Peter Belohlavek at The Unicist Research Institute, changed the paradigms of the scientific approach to complexity. It made a logical approach to complex adaptive systems possible, making them reasonable, understandable and manageable. It integrated Complexity Sciences and Systemic Sciences in a unified field.

The Unicist Theory emulates the organization of nature by introducing unicist objects to drive business processes, institutional processes and social processes. You can access the complete document at http://www.unicist.org/repo

Complexity Science ResearchOverview

What is the Unicist Theory?

It is the theory that explains the nature of things.

What does the wording “nature of things” mean?

The nature of an entity is defined by its functionality in an environment, which has an underlying conceptual structure that emulates the intelligence that underlies nature.

What does the intelligence of nature mean?

It means that the functionality of every natural entity is driven by a purpose, an active and entropic principle that drives changes and an energy conservation principle that sustains the purpose.

What is the knowledge of the nature of things needed for?

To know what we are doing or talking about in order to better adapt to the environment, which implies influencing the environment while being influenced by it.

How reliable is this knowledge?

This knowledge is fully reliable because it deals with the conceptual functionality of things. It solves the empirical probabilistic approach of most systemic sciences.

When is the application of the Unicist Theory necessary?

It is necessary to diagnose, build strategies and design architectures in adaptive environments like businesses, institutions, social behavior and future research.

What happens if it is not used when dealing with complex adaptive environments?

When the nature of an entity is not considered, the capacity to adapt is lost and is replaced by dominating, opposing or submitting to the environment.

Which are the limits of its application?                                                 

The limits are given by the capacity of individuals to apprehend the concepts that underlie facts.

The Basic Breakthroughs that sustain the Unicist Theory

1) The discovery of the Ontogenetic Intelligence of Nature that regulates the evolution of living beings.

2) The discovery that Complex Adaptive Systems do not include variables but include objects that are interrelated by biunivocal multiple relationships.

3) The discovery of complementation and supplementation as the unique types of relationships in Nature.

4) The discovery of Human Ontointelligence that allows apprehending the concepts that underlie the nature and things.

Introduction

The objective of the development of the Unicist Theory was to find a structural solution to deal with complex adaptive systems considering their characteristics. Complex adaptive systems have, among other aspects, open boundaries and are integrated by the conjunction of their elements. In such systems, there is no possibility for the existence of observers.

The Unicist Theory, based on the discovery of the ontogenetic intelligence of nature, allowed developing the four scientific pillars that provided the basics of the unicist logic based and objects driven technologies to manage human complex adaptive environments: Conceptual Economics, Conceptual Anthropology, Conceptual Psychology and Conceptual Management.

The Unicist Theory was originated by the need of finding responses to the question of why things happen in the social and economic world in order to influence evolution. It was triggered by the need of going beyond the empirical Know How that was used in the 70s to approach complex adaptive environments and the need to integrate it with a “Know Why”, that was inexistent.

The author developed an inductive approach to complex environments, which implied that he began at an operational level dealing with complex adaptive systems and entered deeper and deeper until the Unicist Theory was born. This theory was born when the structure of the concepts that underlie facts was discovered.

Then he began the application and research work to find the structure of concepts in the field of complex adaptive systems, beginning with biology and ending with social sciences and future research. This research work was possible due to the development of the unicist ontological research methodology that changed the paradigms of sciences to approach complexity.

The Theory itself

The research in complexity sciences to manage complex adaptive systems that led to the discovery of the Ontogenetic Intelligence of Nature and the Unicist Theory began in 1976. It was led by Peter Belohlavek and included the following discoveries and developments: Unicist Ontology, Unicist Logic, Unicist Conceptualization, Ontogenetic Maps and Unicist Objects.

The Unicist Unified FieldThe Unicist Theory was developed to manage the nature of complex adaptive entities.

On the one hand, to approach the nature of things an individual needs to be able to apprehend the essential patterns that underlie the operational patterns that are observable.

But, on the other hand, complex adaptive entities have open boundaries, which imply that the individual, who intends to influence the environment is part of the system, which makes traditional systemic science research methods fallacious.

In this context, the Unicist Ontological Research Methodology was developed to transform complex problems into manageable problems.

The Unicist Theory needs to be apprehended using the ontointelligence any individual has. It defines the individual’s capacity to apprehend the nature of things in adaptive environments.

It has to be considered that 3-5 year old children use their conceptual approach to reality to adapt to an environment that fully exceeds their rational comprehension by posing and endless questioning on the “WHY” of things.

Ontointelligence is necessary to manage reality as a unified field. This is necessary when dealing with complex adaptive systems. Ontointelligence is the deepest human intelligence that allows apprehending the nature that underlies observable facts. It is integrated by ethical intelligence, strategic intelligence and the logical type of thinking of individuals.

The Unicist Theory solved the approach to complexity

Unicist Theory, its Applications and Scientific EvidencesThe Unicist Theory made adaptive systems manageable and gave an epistemological structure to complexity sciences. As it is known, the management of complexity has been an unsolved challenge for sciences. This challenge has been faced in 1976 by Peter Belohlavek at The Unicist Research Institute, which became a pioneering organization in the development of concrete solutions to manage the complex adaptive systems by developing a logical approach that uses the Unicist Theory.

A double dialectical logical approach to manage complex problems has been discovered. This approach is based on the discovery that complex systems have a triadic structure that emulates the ontogenetic intelligence of nature, represented by a purpose, an active principle and an energy conservation principle and their integration. The Unicist Theory that solved the approach to complexity includes the Ontogenetic Intelligence of Nature, the Unicist Ontology, the Unicist Logic, the Unicist Conceptualization, the Unicist Ontology of Evolution, the Ontogenetic Maps and the Unicist Objects.

There are fields that are generally accepted as being complex such as: life sciences, social sciences, anthropology, political sciences, economic sciences, behavioral sciences, medicine, psychology, education, businesses, ecology and meteorology.

The complexity of a system is intrinsic, which means that it does not depend on the perception of an individual. But in order to apprehend a complex system it is necessary that the person emulates the system in mind, which fully depends on the individual. This required defining what a complex system is.

Science dealt with complexity using multiple palliatives but without achieving consensus of what complex systems are. The main problem to manage complexity is that all the elements of the complex system are integrated by bi-univocal conjunctions without the possibility of the existence of disjunctions, that the boundaries of the objects that integrate the complex system are open and that the system is open in itself. The only measurable facts are the results that such system produces.

The most difficult task was the completion of the scientific evidences to confirm the functionality of the solutions, which demanded thousands of applications until they could be synthesized. The scientific evidences of the Unicist Theory were: the functionality of amino acids, the structure of atoms, the structure of biological entities, the nervous system, the similarity between natural and social objects, the fact that unicist concepts behave as stem cells and that thinking processes are homologous to the functionality of electricity.

The Unicist Theory was used to develop applications in Life Sciences, Future Research, Business, Education, Healthcare and Social and Human behavior. Now complex adaptive systems became manageable and complexity science received its epistemological structure. Palliatives to deal with complexity will continue to be used until people accept that complexity needs to be approached in its nature.

The main countries that originated these researches were: US, DE, UK, FR, JP, SE, CA, CH, IN, BR, AR, CAT, RU, CN, AU. It required changing the systemic approaches to manage the open boundaries and the conjunction of the elements that integrate the adaptive systems.

Its applications are based on Conceptual Economy, Conceptual Anthropology, Conceptual Psychology, the Unicist Logical Approach to Businesses, Adaptive Automation and Logical Inferences based Future Research.

Acknowledgements

The development of these researches was possible due to the participation in the research of hundreds of institutions and companies and thousands of individuals since its beginning in 1976.

As it is known, complexity research has to be developed in the “real world” and doesn’t allow making artificial experimentation. Thus, the researches on unicist ontological structures of reality gave birth to the Unicist Standard which is based on the discovery of the ontogenetic intelligence of nature and the consequent Unicist Theory of Evolution.
