I am interested in participating in the development program in Brazil. How can I participate?

PeterBelohlavek

We are waiting for the results of the Brazilian elections. The political funding generated a perception of social illegitimacy, which will have two different solutions according to which party wins the election. We will be waiting until November to define the approach to Brazil. It does not change our 50-year project in Brazil.

I have been invited to participate as an economist in the project that deals with Microeconomics driven Development in the UK. Can you please be more specific and tell me what my role would be?

PeterBelohlavek

All the economists begin by understanding the 50 year project and how it is self-sustained by the activity of the different participating agents. You will begin with a educational program, sponsored by the unicist school, explaining evolutionary economics, the microeconomics driven development approach including the unicist theory of social evolution that guides this project.
We begin with the educational program now, while we confirm that the Brexit will take place.

Qual é o método para construir um argumento de vendas baseado no conhecimento do argumento de compra de um cliente ou segmento de clientes?

PeterBelohlavek

Buying arguments are complementary to selling arguments. This means that the role of the buyer is complementary with the role of the “seller”. The buying argument is defined by the concept that underlies the “object” that is being sold. This concept, which is defined by a purpose, an active function and an energy conservation function defines the concept the buyer has in mind. Based on this knowledge it is necessary to apply the complementation law to find the concept of the selling argument. After this has been done it needs to be tested using destructive and non-destructive pilot tests until the validity of the selling argument can be confirmed.

What is the difference between VALS Lifestyles and Unicist Lifestyles. I am interested in applying it in the educational field.

PeterBelohlavek

VALS is a psychological approach while the unicist lifestyles are an anthropological approach that is based on the cultural “invariables”, expansion, contraction, freedom and security, and on the drivers of social evolution that drive the collective intelligence of a community. VALS intends to define the behavior of social groups or individuals while the unicist lifestyles define the collective intelligence that catalyzes or inhibits individual behavior.
Are you aware of what collective intelligence is about?

Which is the mental process that is required to develop the conceptual design of an adaptive system?

PeterBelohlavek

To develop the conceptual design of an adaptive system it is necessary to emulate the solution in mind beginning with the functional and operational aspects and ending with the fundamentals that define the essential aspects that underlie the operation. https://www.unicist.org/conceptual-thinking/emulation-of-reality/
What needs to be designed is the unified field of the process of an adaptive system defining the threshold that each of its elements needs to achieve to fulfill the purpose of the system. This requires managing the unified field of the system.
Are you aware of the unified field method to be used to make the conceptual design?

It has been discussed that, a layer is an object. It was suggested that the OSI model be considered as an example.

It seems that part of the nature of a layer is in its relationship to other things. It seems that a layer either requires the existence of another layer AND/OR supports the existence of another layer. It also seems that a layer should ONLY interacts with a layer below and/or above. The outer layers are exposed to the environment, but the inner layers, theoretically and by design are closed systems.

These characteristics exist in OSI layers.

From my perspective, the body has the first characteristic, where things support each other, but, depending the level of context, the bodies objects are independently subject to the environment.

Marketing, Strategy or RCM are much more akin to a body’s organ than a OSI layer, except perhaps the top or bottom, in my opinion. They are affected by and affect the environment independently.

I welcome debate on this subjective, rational opinion.

Thank you in advance.

Wes,

Layers can be found in nature in the functionality of the skin or of a leaf. Layers are objects the participate in the process of a “systemic object” that has a specific purpose that requires different stages to achieve the goal. Each of this stages will be developed by a layer. The purpose can only be achieved if all the necessary layers are functional.
Studying the functionality of the layers of skin will provide a homology of layers which are a natural part of all the systemic processes that require achieving different results until the final results is achieved.
Another example are the layers in the atmosphere.
I invite you to continue with the research until the concept of layer has been apprehended

PeterBelohlavek

To manage the layers of social and business processes it is necessary to be able to emulate the whole process in mind. If not the layer is just an idea. What is needed to know is the “unified field” of the process.

PeterBelohlavek

Every individual, social and business process is integrated by layers which are defined by the function and the goals that have to be achieved. There are conceptual layers that allow dealing with the root causes of processes. They allow assuming the responsibility for results. They define the hierarchy of the processes. Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, educational processes, marketing processes, social evolution processes, economic processes are examples of the use of layers. In IT this becomes evident because without the necessary layers the systems don’t work.

PeterBelohlavek

The management of layers requires having them emulated in mind. The understanding of the layers in nature clarifies the importance of having the accurate layers of a process.

Wes

What is the purpose of intelligence (of any type)?

PeterBelohlavek

The purpose of human intelligence is to drive human adaptive processes.

Wes

Could it be said that the same is true for artificial intelligence? If not, how can it be considered?

PeterBelohlavek

Yes, it is the same. It has to be considered that human reasoning in the field of adaptive environments requires the integration of abductive reasoning, inductive reasoning and deductive reasoning. Unicist artificial intelligence integrates these three reasoning processes while the artificial intelligence that existed before only uses inductive and deductive reasoning.

Wes

Can it be said that the validity of abductive reasoning is given by ontogenetic maps?

PeterBelohlavek

The ontogenetic maps define the mental models

Dionisio

La humanidad esta viviendo una época donde las redes neuronales (en sus diversas aplicaciones) ayudan a producir “twins” de equipos físicos con un creciente grado de similitud. En paralelo la biología acelera el conocimiento sobre los algoritmos bioquímicos que están en la base de nuestra construcción, primero animal y luego humana,. En este contexto aparece una inclinación científica por recrear en forma electrónica aquello que es bioquímico,, Pareciera como un intento utópico de crear un “ser a su imagen y semejanza”sostenido por medios no perecederos como podría ser la electrónica.. Hay algún escollo insuperable en este intento? En otras palabras¿Donde esta el límite? ¿Estamos ante un acción adaptativa para expandir la frontera de la vida? ¿Hay una estrategia que sostiene el intento? ¿O mejor, existiría la posibilidad de diseñar una estrategia para alcanzar este propósito? Indudablemente existen inversores para financiar lo que se esta haciendo., puesto que el tiempo sea quizás la barrera que parece mas infranqueable. ¿Será así?.

PeterBelohlavek

From my point of view what needs to be found is the algorithm that explains the evolution of nature and then build the artificial intelligence based on it. This will allow the emulation of the intelligence, organization and evolution of nature and will simplify humans life. This, I think, are the facts, the rest is hypothetical until this goal has been achieved. The future exceeds my comprehension because the future and the past are only symmetric in stagnated environments which is not the case. The future can be approached once a true starting point has been established. For the moment what we experience in this field are smart palliatives. https://www.zdnet.com/article/google-ponders-the-shortcomings-of-machine-learning/

Dionisio

Which are the conditions to be met in order to have an true starting point?

PeterBelohlavek

All what is needed is the confirmation through destructive and non-destructive tests.

Dionisio

Esto significa que a un desarrollo estratégico determinado se lo puede verificar,, es decir predecir su posibilidad de éxito mediante “tests” antes de ser lanzado.. Imagino que para tal verificación deben existir; indicadores que validen las premisas asumidas, predicciones de futuro que anticipen la dinámica evolutiva y consciencia histórica para inhibir falacias. preexistentes..

PeterBelohlavek

The Unicist Strategy System is an emulator and not a simulator.

PeterBelohlavek

There is a future scenario and the “quantification”of the fundamentals that define the ontogenetic maps of the strategy that is being built, define the indicators. The destructive tests in homologous fields allow confirming the validity of the concept and the non-destructive tests define the reliability of the functionality. These tests are a sort of sandbox to emulate and simulate the strategy.

Dionisio

If I understand correctly a mental model is a basic reference to build up an strategy

PeterBelohlavek

This is true. But they have to models that integrate abductive, inductive and deductive reasoning. This allows dealing with the root causes of things. Analogical models, using deductive (analytical) and inductive (operational) reasoning do not allow apprehending the possibilities of realm, because it is not possible to expand the boundaries of preexisting knowledge. The model are an emulation of what needs to b achieved.

Dionisio

I was trying to connect emulation with ontogenetic maps as emulation models…

PeterBelohlavek

I understand that this is a statement

Richard

Is the abductive reasoning the only approach to build innovative knowledge?

PeterBelohlavek

Abductive reasoning was developed to deal with innovation. There is always an alternative intuitive approach. But abductive reasoning is the unique solution to approach innovations in a conscious way. The intuitive approach is unconscious.
