The perception of the Unified Field of Adaptive Systems

Businesses are a paradigmatic Human Complex Adaptive System that needs to be managed as a Unified Field. This is the field of complexity sciences.

Perceiving the unified field requires observing the active function, perceiving the energy conservation function, intuiting the implicit purpose and finally validating through destructive and non destructive pilot tests.

Every reality, considered as an adaptive system from a functional point of view, has a unique essential structure.


The unicist approach deals with reality considered as a unified field. This unified field is defined by the extrinsic and intrinsic concepts that have been discovered.

These unicist concepts are the unicist ontology that defines and regulates the nature of the entity that is being dealt with. This unified field is defined by a credibility zone when we deal with extrinsic concepts and by a functionality zone when dealing with intrinsic concepts.

The credibility or functionality zone behaves like a “micro-cosmos”.

Every being can be described by the three principles and functions that define it. It has a purpose, an action principle and an energy conservation principle. These three elements are integrated in its oneness considering a specific functionality in the environment.

NOTE: The Unicist Research Institute is the pioneering organization in the development of ontology based and business object driven solutions for businesses. More than 3,500 ontological researches were developed since 1976 until September 2010 in the field of individual, institutional and social evolution.
