Discovery of Human Ontointelligence to apprehend nature

The research showed that the deepest intelligence humans use to apprehend the nature of a reality can be developed. Still, after more than 7 years from the final conclusions on Ontointelligence, the discovery unveils novelties on the tendency to encourage or discourage the development of this type of intelligence in different cultures. These results are being now disseminated.

Human IntelligenceThe discovery of Ontointelligence was the result of the researches of Peter Belohlavek on intelligence that began in 1976. The operational ontointelligence was discovered in 1985. The research of the personal ethics as the access to conceptual thinking was finished in 1996. The final validation of ethics functionality as a type of intelligence occurred in 2006.

The unicist ontological research defined and described the essential and operational functionality of intelligence. According to the results, intelligence has reactive, active and ontointelligence functions.

The reactive functions of intelligence make intelligence objectively measurable. The active functions of intelligence are those where intelligence can be measured in potential and essential terms. Finally, the functions determined by ontointelligence are those described in this abstract.

The more essential an intelligence is, the more difficult it is to be measured and modified by the individual’s action. Thus, in societies and institutions, contexts stimulate or discourage the development of intelligence.

This unicist ontology-based research focused on the apparently unreasonable human behaviors and explained their functionality.

The following types of intelligence were discovered and researched:

  1. Conceptual intelligence
  2. Strategic style
  3. Type of thought
  4. Ethical intelligence

Human Intelligence Levels

Intelligence works showed the use of three layers to support human adaptive behavior. These three layers can be described as:

  1. Reactive Intelligence, which has direct contact with the environment.
  2. Active Intelligence, which sustains reactive intelligence when there is a need for a planning process.
  3. Ontointelligence, which sustains active intelligence when the “apprehension” of the essence of a certain reality is required.

Synopsis of the conclusions

Reactive Intelligence

It determines the capacity to act in an adapted way when facing an unexpected situation.

It is characterized and measured by:

  1. The emotional quotient (EQ)
  2. The intelligence quotient (IQ)
  3. The frustrations elaboration quotient (FQ)

Active Intelligence

It determines the capacity to plan actions in an adapted way.

It is characterized and measured by:

  1. Conceptual intelligence: the introjective empathy and sympathetic capacity to influence.
  2. Functional Intelligence: the type of intelligence of an individual (musical, logical- mathematical, etc.).
  3. Linking Intelligence: the Intra-personal or Inter-personal intelligence.


It determines the individual’s capacity to apprehend the underlying concept in a complex situation.

It is characterized and measured by:

  1. Ethical Intelligence: the functionality of the individual’s “rules”.
  2. Strategic Intelligence: the way an individual faces the reality to which he seeks to adapt.
  3. Type of logical thinking: the individual’s mind mechanism used to solve the problems related to his adaptation to the environment.

June 1st is our 37th Anniversary

It is a very special pleasure to celebrate this anniversary in the middle of our institutional expansion that includes the recognition of the scientific work that sustains it.

Unicist Unified FieldWe want to take advantage of this anniversary honoring Peter Belohlavek, the creator of the Unicist Theory, and we would like to invite you to participate in this recognition by learning about the changes this theory introduced in multiple sciences.

Please enter the following link to learn about these changes:

The Unicist Theory expanded the field of “systemic” sciences by integrating complexity sciences that allowed managing complex adaptive systems without needing to use palliatives.

We invite you to stay informed on the scientific developments following our institutional facebook:

Double Dialectical Thinking to deal with triadic structures

The unicist ontogenetic intelligence of nature defines that every living being has a purpose, an active principle and an energy conservation principle.

To approach a reality integrated by three elements with a dualistic mind it is necessary to consider it as a dualistic integration of binary elements. To perceive dialectics it is necessary to have a high abstraction capacity.

Those who do not have the abstraction capacity consider the dialectical behavior based on observable facts of reality. They cannot differentiate essential correlations from cause-effect relations.

The Unicist Dialectics allows dealing with human adaptive systems managing the integration of their double dialectical behavior.

With this double dialectical approach (purpose – active function, purpose – energy conservation function) one can understand the structure of an adaptive system and its evolution.

Unicist Dialectics is based on the emulation of adaptive systems, emulating the ontogenetic intelligence of nature (purpose, active principle, energy conservation principle).

Its application to human adaptive systems made the emulation of individual, institutional and social evolution possible.

Individuals who have the necessary functional intelligence and the will to add value to an environment, and are able to see the double dialectics, develop two different actions to ensure results: on the one hand, they impulse action and on the other hand, they develop actions to inhibit entropy.
