Unicist Functionalism

Managing the Roots of Functionality & the Root Causes of Problems

The unicist functionalist approach uses functionalist principles to manage the roots of the functionality of things and the root causes of problems. Functionalist principles are an emulation of the intelligence that underlies nature that gave birth to the unicist logic, which provides the rules to manage the functionality of things.

The professional use of functionalist principles requires managing them at a personal level. It is like mathematics, which is a universal knowledge that needs to be understood at a personal level, before accepting its application in the real world.

The use of this approach at a personal level is meaningful to manage complex problems, which are those where the solutions are feedback dependent.


Functionalist vs. Operational Visions

Functionality defines the value of things while operation defines their costs

Watching the sun travelling across the sky from sunrise to sunset is a typical observation of operational phenomena.

People say that the sun is travelling across the sky which is, from a functional standpoint, false. People think that they are standing still on a place and that the sun is moving.

A functionalist approach explains that this phenomenon is basically the consequence of the rotation of earth, which happens roughly at 1,000 miles per hour, but people think that they are standing still, and the sun is surrounding the earth. 

Metaphors to Clarify Functionality

The cost of a glass is in its solid;
its value is in its hollow.
Its cost has no value.
Its value has no cost.
But both of them are within the glass.


The cost of a process is given by its operation;
its value is given by its functionality.
Operation has no value.
Functionality has no cost.
But both of them are within the process.


The Unicist Functionalist Design

The functionalist design allows defining structural solutions in adaptive environments

Functionalist design implies managing the functional structure of the solution, based on the functionalist principles that define a process.

It ends with the operational solution that can be managed by anyone without needing to manage the functionalist principles of what is being done. It uses binary actions to simplify this process.

Functionalist design is based on unicist logic that allows managing the root causes of problems and developing binary actions that manage maximal strategies to grow and minimum strategies to ensure results.
