Unicist Ontology

The Unicist Ontology of an Electric Motor

This ontology describes and defines the intrinsic functionality of an electric motor. It is based on understanding the principles that make it work which include a purpose, an active function, and an energy conservation function.

The purpose of an electric motor is to convert electrical energy into mechanical energy. DC motors and AC motors are based on the same essential principles that define their triadic structure.

While their active function is based on transforming electrical energy into magnetic energy, the energy conservation function transforms the magnetic energy into mechanical energy.

The binary actions of the process are, on the one hand, the transformation of electrical energy into magnetic energy and, on the other hand, the transformation of the magnetic force into mechanical energy. These processes happen within the rotor and the stator of an electric motor.

The Functionality of the Electric Motor

The knowledge of the ontological structure of an electric motor establishes the framework of the functionality of any electric motor. Its knowledge is based on understanding the unicist logic that drives its functionality.

This logic is materialized in the binary actions that make these principles work. Thus, the evolution of electric motors led to multiple devices that work according to the underlying intrinsic concept.

It has to be considered that the intrinsic concept of the electric motor defines its functionality but not its use. Its use is defined by the extrinsic concept that also has a purpose, an active function, and an energy conservation function. This concept varies according to the use that is given to the motor.

The knowledge of the intrinsic concept defines the structure to build electric motors and the knowledge of the extrinsic concept allows defining how to make them usable.

The Unicist Functionalist Approach: The functionalist approach is based on the use of binary actions that are composed by two synchronized actions where the first one opens possibilities and the second one ensures results. The use of univocal actions only works in fully controlled processes or where the environment provides the second action that sustains it. Therefore, the use of binary actions is not optional when it is needed to ensure the generation of results. www.unicist.org


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.

2013: Seven breakthroughs that changed scientific paradigms

Several major discoveries were finished at The Unicist Research Institute at the beginning of 2013. They are all breakthroughs in their fields. They are extreme researches that, in all of the cases, demanded more than 20 years until they were finished. In all the cases the research was led by Peter Belohlavek.

The Unicist Research Institute has changed the paradigms of complexity researchThey change the complex aspects of science covering:

Political Sciences

1) Development of the unicist ontology of Social, Economic and Political Democracy


2) Functionality of dualistic logic in complex environments

3) Discovery of the structure of aprioristic fallacies


4) Development of the unicist ontology of cultural adaptiveness and over-adaptiveness

5) Discovery of the unicist ontology of corruption and corruption inhibitors

Cognitive Sciences

6) Development of the unicist ontology of erudition and wisdom


7) Development of the unicist learning objects to guide learning processes

The results of these researches give access to the groundings of the Unicist Logical Approach to the community. They allow complementing empirical approaches with logical approaches in order to have adequate diagnoses and develop functional value generating actions.

The Unicist Approach for Growth

Businesses, by definition, happen in the future and it has to be considered that the past and the future are not symmetric.

The unicist approach uses both fundamental and technical analytical knowledge. It deals with the future using the unicist ontology based fundamentals.

Its unicist logic allows inferring the future to diagnose, build strategies, design architectures and build business objects.

The technical analytical tools are used to operate the businesses.

It has to be considered that unicist ontology based and object driven technologies have been developed to influence the future of businesses to make growth happen.

Homology between unicist ontology, atoms and biology

Before the unicist approach there was no possibility to approach businesses with a valid universal structural methodology. The unicist approach is based on the research and development of a universal model that allowed dealing with the essential structure of businesses.

This homology is just a demonstration that beginning with physics, continuing with biology and ending with human behavior the essential structures of these fields are necessarily compatible and homologous.

The objective of this synthesis is to provide the framework of the consistency between the unicist ontological approach and hard sciences to demonstrate not only that they are compatible but also their homology.

The Unicist Ontology

The unicist ontology describes the nature of reality with the structure and rules of the ontogenetic intelligence of nature. Thus it has a logical structure that allows guiding the individual in the search of the nature of something and providing the necessary language to describe it.

The ontogenetic maps describe the unicist ontological structures of the functions of some reality. These maps define the essential drivers, catalysts and inhibitors which define the natural actions of these functions.


After the unicist ontology has been apprehended, it becomes evident that its structure is homologous to the structure of atoms and biology.

This homology allows dealing with the nature of the complex aspects of all sciences using the same unicist ontological structure defined by the ontogenetic maps to define the concept of what is needed to develop with a fully reliable approach.

Engineering, electronics, information technology, behavioral sciences, anthropology and architecture among other application fields need to use the unicist ontological structure and the corresponding ontogenetic maps in order to be apprehended in their nature. Without them concepts are just ideas and not concrete structures to be followed.


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

The purpose can also be defined as the substantive function, the active principle as the verbal function and the energy conservation principle as the adverbial function.

In physics atoms are defined by having a central nucleus, composed by positively charged protons and neutral neutrons, surrounded by negatively charged electrons.

The positively charged protons are homologous to the substantive function, the neutral neutrons are homologous to the adverbial function and the negatively charged electrons are homologous to the verbal function. An atom, having an equal number of protons and electrons, is electrically neutral.

Living beings are continuously evolving and involving which implies that there is always disequilibrium between their purposes and their active functions which is homologous to the disequilibrium of protons and electrons.

This disequilibrium is what defines the energy and the influence of an ontogenetic structure in the environment.

The active function and the purpose are antithetic and supplementary implying that both are charged with energy.

The energy conservation function and the purpose have a complementary relationship which is evident in atoms where the neutrons allow the integration of the protons.

The mass of an element is basically given by the nucleus of an ontological structure meaning that the mass is given by the purpose and its complementary energy conservation function. But the evolution of a living being is given by the power of the active function in the environment.

The Unicist Ontology of Biological Entities

The unicist ontology of a “biological entity” defines its structure and functionality in an environment.

The genotype defines the genetic structure of the entity that rules its evolution and generates the phenotype of the being.  The objective of the genotype is to ensure the permanence of species, its reproduction and production.

The phenotype defines the morphologic, behavioral and materialistic characteristics of the entity.

It defines the functional characteristics, the functional power of the entity and the functional assurance.

Functionality defines the effectiveness of the phenotype measured as the consequence of the adaptation of the biological entity to the environment.

Functionality is measured in the capacity of adapting and growing on the one hand, and surviving, on the other hand.

The understanding of the ontology of “biological entities” helps to follow the laws of nature when dealing with genetic engineering processes and use it to apprehend the nature of beings with “artificial life” such as institutions.

Unicist Pilot Testing and Unicist Thinking to confirm business decisions

Pilot testing is necessary to confirm the accuracy of business decision. But when problems are complex, pilot testing is a “must” in order to avoid mind traps.

The fundamentals of Unicist Pilot Testing were developed by Peter Belohlavek at the Unicist Research Institute.

Pilot testing are not trial and error activities. They require a precise design defining both destructive and non-destructive tests. Destructive tests allow defining the limits of a specific knowledge and non-destructive tests define its validity.

Pilot testing must begin with destructive tests in order to define the boundaries to develop the non-destructive tests. Unicist thinking proves the supplementation and complementation laws that allow designing these pilot tests.

People who do not do spontaneous pilot tests when focusing on a complex problem are not prepared for assuming the responsibility for producing results.

Pilot tests allow confirming the knowledge of the fundamentals of a problem. They are actions that promote actions.
