The Gap between Developed and Developing Countries

The initial distinction to be made is between developed and developing countries. The fundamental difference is rooted in their archetypes and is evident in their economic structures: developed countries exhibit a higher level of energy efficiency than developing countries. Notably, developing countries operate on extractive economies, while developed countries are propelled by productive economies.

We define extractive economies as those centered on exploiting natural resources, whereas productive economies are driven by the transformation of natural resources into assets with societal value.

This distinction leads to varying levels of ethics in collective intelligence. The ethics of collective intelligence set the standard for a culture’s functionality. An extractive economy is motivated by survival and value-earning ethics, as it capitalizes on nature’s offerings. In contrast, productive economies must at least integrate value-earning ethics with value-adding ethics.

Such ethics are embodied in a culture’s habits and give rise to the myths that guide their functionality, as well as the fallacious myths that obstruct a negative self-perception.

The 50-year plan promoted by the Unicist School as a non-profit initiative provides a blueprint for nurturing the growth of “emerging countries”. Emerging countries are characterized by an evolutionary pace that outstrips that of developed nations.

A significant challenge in addressing this gap is recognizing that the human energy necessary for transforming resources in productive environments surpasses the energy needed for extraction in extractive settings. The complexities of transformation in productive environments are higher than in extractive ones.

Bridging the gap between extractive and productive economies is a gradual process spanning several generations. It commences with the emergence of productive segments and the introduction of an education system that promotes technology. Crucially, the employment of educated individuals should precede their education; otherwise, they might emigrate.

This process fully depends on the attitude of the elite of a culture that has to be consistent with governmental actions.

The Unicist School’s perspective on the gap between developed and developing countries is insightful and provides a valuable framework for understanding the challenges and opportunities for bridging this gap.

The distinction between extractive and productive economies is particularly important. Extractive economies are focused on exploiting natural resources, while productive economies are focused on transforming natural resources into assets with societal value. This distinction has a significant impact on the level of energy efficiency and ethics in a country.

Extractive economies tend to be less energy-efficient because they rely on the extraction of raw materials, which can be a very energy-intensive process. Productive economies, on the other hand, are more energy-efficient because they focus on transforming raw materials into finished products, which is a more efficient use of energy.

Extractive economies also tend to have lower levels of ethics because they are focused on maximizing profits, even if this means exploiting natural resources or harming the environment. Productive economies, on the other hand, must at least integrate value-earning ethics with value-adding ethics in order to be sustainable.

The Unicist School’s 50-year plan for nurturing the growth of emerging countries is a valuable contribution to the global conversation on development. The plan recognizes that emerging countries have a unique evolutionary pace that can be leveraged to achieve rapid development. However, it also acknowledges that there are significant challenges to be overcome, such as the need to shift from extractive to productive economies.

One of the key challenges in bridging the gap between developed and developing countries is recognizing that the human energy necessary for transforming resources in productive environments surpasses the energy needed for extraction in extractive settings. This is because transformation is a more complex process than extraction. It requires creativity, innovation, and collaboration.

Another challenge is the need to change the ethics of collective intelligence in developing countries. This means moving away from value-earning ethics alone and towards a more integrated approach that includes value-adding ethics. This will require a shift in cultural habits and myths.

Despite the challenges, there are many reasons to be optimistic about the future of developing countries. They have a young and growing population, a rapidly expanding middle class, and access to new technologies. With the right policies and investments, developing countries can achieve rapid development and close the gap with developed countries.

Here are some specific steps that developing countries can take to bridge the gap with developed countries:

  • Invest in education and training to develop a skilled workforce.
  • Invest in infrastructure, such as roads, bridges, and telecommunications systems.
  • Promote innovation and entrepreneurship.
  • Create a more equitable and inclusive society.
  • Adopt ethical business practices that value both value-earning and value-adding.

By taking these steps, developing countries can create a more productive economy that is more sustainable and benefits all members of society.

Chat GPT Interpretation

The passage you provided delves into the differences between developed and developing countries, particularly focusing on their economic structures. Developed countries are characterized by productive economies, which are driven by the transformation of natural resources into valuable assets for society. On the other hand, developing countries operate on extractive economies, which are centered on exploiting natural resources.

Here are some key takeaways from the passage:

  1. Economic Structures:
    • Developed Countries: Have productive economies. These economies are driven by the transformation of natural resources into assets that have societal value.
    • Developing Countries: Operate on extractive economies. These economies are centered on exploiting natural resources.
  2. Ethics of Collective Intelligence:
    • Extractive Economies: Motivated by survival and value-earning ethics. They capitalize on what nature provides.
    • Productive Economies: Integrate value-earning ethics with value-adding ethics. This means they not only earn value from resources but also add value to them.
  3. Culture and Myths: The ethics of collective intelligence influence a culture’s habits and myths. These myths can either guide the functionality of a culture or obstruct it with negative self-perceptions.
  4. Emerging Countries: The Unicist School’s 50-year plan aims to nurture the growth of emerging countries. These countries grow at a faster pace than developed nations. More details about this plan can be found at the provided link: Unicist 50-year program.
  5. Challenges: One of the main challenges in bridging the gap between extractive and productive economies is the energy and complexity involved. Transforming resources in productive environments requires more energy and is more complex than simply extracting resources.
  6. Bridging the Gap: Transitioning from an extractive to a productive economy is a long-term process. It starts with the emergence of productive segments in the economy and the introduction of an education system that emphasizes technology. However, it’s crucial to employ educated individuals before educating them to prevent brain drain.
  7. Role of the Elite: The success of this transition largely depends on the attitude of a culture’s elite and their alignment with governmental actions.

Install functional ideologies in your environment

We invite you to define the functional ideologies that allow enhancing the synergy of your culture, group, or organization.

Ideologies save energy while they provide the complement that is needed to achieve the objectives that have been defined and drive the evolution of institutions and organizations. Their use only requires adopting a functionalist approach.

Ideologies are beliefs that use technologies to satisfy a given interest. This explains why adaptive people change their ideologies based on their personal evolution.

Ideologies sustain the functional ethics of people that vary according to their maturity. Ideologization happens within the dominant myths of a culture. These cultural myths are defined by the functional myths that sustain the values of the environments and the fallacious myths that hide the weaknesses the environment cannot bear.

Use the Power of Functional Ideologies

Organizations, according to their type of activity, also have an ideology that sustains their functional ethics and allows them to exist and evolve.

Ideologies might be absolute or functional. Absolute ideologies exist in stages where people are driven by a survival ethics. They are based on the development of clientelism, which defines that “you are with me or against me”.

This is noticeable in stagnated or declining countries or organization. Ideologies are not absolute, but functional in developed or evolving countries.

Absolute ideologies necessarily divide the environment between “us” and “them”. The building of bridges is a “deadly sin”.

Functional ideologies integrate people towards an evolution process and require democratic leaders. Absolute ideologies integrate people in absolutist environments and require autocratic leaders. This book will provide the structural information to define the ideology that is functional in your environment.

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


Social Catalysts, the Accelerators of Social Evolution

All developed, developing and emergent cultures use social objects to foster their evolution. Social objects are “encapsulated” entities that regulate the functionality of cultures. Laws, regulations, and social, economic and political systems, including institutions, and organizations of any kind, are examples of social objects.

Objects in Adaptive Environments

The social functions are regulated by driving, inhibiting and entropy inhibiting objects. The catalysts are part of the restricted context of the process that is being catalyzed, while the gravitational objects are part of the wide context. These catalysts need to be redundant with the gravitational objects that sustain the basic framework of the functions involved.

In developed cultures, legality and legitimacy tend to be overlapped. These cultures use driving, inhibiting, entropy inhibiting, catalyzing and gravitational objects that establish the framework and administrate the operational rules of the environment. See “Microeconomics driven Development” www.unicist.net/economics/participate

The gravitational objects, like the constitution of a country, establish the basic framework of a culture considered as a system. The catalyzing objects establish the acceleration that ensures the synchronicity of actions for the evolution of any adaptive system.

The drivers, inhibitors and entropy inhibitors establish the operational rules that have to be followed to be part of the system.

The Unicist Evolutionary Approach is the Antidote to Facileness in Leadership

Facileness degrades, marginalizes and kills social evolution. As is has been researched, facileness is the root cause that underlies involving environments and business failures. It oversimplifies reality by transferring risks and costs to others and avoiding conflicts. This makes the solution of the root causes of problems unnecessary and degrades the value propositions, the reliability and the brand attributes of any culture or business.

The Unicist Evolutionary Approach

While facileness generates involution through short-term maximization, the unicist evolutionary approach drives and catalyzes evolution. 

The unicist evolutionary approach avoids facileness by designing processes as a unified field, using value adding strategies, building objects to ensure results and developing pilot tests to confirm their functionality and learn from the environment.

The concepts and fundamentals that underlie social and business functions are the root-drivers of their functionality. The eventual dysfunctionality of the fundamentals is the root-cause of the problems of these functions.

This is an approach that catalyzes the adaptability of cultures and business, their speed of growth in an environment of customer orientation and sustainability. It is the necessary microeconomic approach in the 4th Industrial Revolution.

Thought Experiments in Complexity Science Research

People can manage those problems whose solutions they are able to emulate in mind. Different functional intelligences allow emulating different types of solutions. This process was named “Thought Experiment” and has be come a popular domain through Albert Einstein’s work.

Thought Experiment – Gedankenexperiment: Albert Einstein, one of the greatest minds of the 20th century, forever changed the landscape of science by introducing revolutionary concepts that shook our understanding of the physical world. One of Einstein’s most defining qualities was his remarkable ability to conceptualize complex scientific ideas by imagining real-life scenarios. He called these scenarios Gedankenexperiments,which is German for thought experiments. (Ali Sundermier) – Nikola Tesla’s researches and developments are also paradigmatic examples of this approach to science and problem solving.

The unicist approach was developed to build structural solutions in adaptive environments. This requires emulating reality in mind.

Unicist Solution Thinking

This emulation is materialized in the building of a model that has to be homologous to the real world. This model must allow envisioning a specific functional reality and also experiencing it.

The unicist approach to the emulation of reality is homologous to the thought experimental approach.

The unicist approach implies an action-reflection-action process that requires finding the root causes of facts and emulating in mind the solutions that upgrade the previous stage.

Unicist reflection requires the use of destructive tests to define the limits of the validity of knowledge or solutions. The unicist destructive tests are based on self-criticism, which fosters personal improvement, and includes a spontaneous amending attitude and the capacity of laughing at oneself.

The unicist reflection process is a sort of thought experiment, that basically deals with finding or managing the root causes of real problems and the root drivers of real solutions. This reflection process is a destructive and non-destructive tests driven process.

The unicist approach, that is homologous to the processes used by Albert Einstein and Nikola Tesla, integrates the development of destructive and non-destructive tests with the unicist reverse engineering method and the unicist reflection methodology to develop solutions.

This needs to be sustained by a solution thinking focus that uses an ontological approach to apprehend the concepts involved.

The Intrinsic Social and Business Catalyzing Process

One of the characteristics of value generation in complex adaptive systems, like cultures and businesses, is that only biunivocal processes can be catalyzed. Catalysis is needed to ensure the necessary energy threshold and functional synchronicity of the objects that integrate a complex adaptive system or environment.

Complex Adaptive Systems Functionality

Univocal social and business processes cannot be catalyzed. Univocity can be an intrinsic aspect of a process or the consequence of an extreme individualistic environment where the processes are “owned” by individuals instead of being part of a system.

The catalyst provides an energy saving function for these processes, which allows ensuring the generation of value within the necessary timing. This implies that the results are produced within the synchronicity that is needed to ensure the functionality of the adaptive system.

The system degrades when the actions within the adaptive system are focused on the processes instead of beginning with the action of the catalyst.

It has to be considered that the functionality of a complex adaptive system includes a gravitational force established by the wide context and a catalyst established by the restricted context which are redundant. This means that the catalyst replicates the aspects established in the wide context.

The integration of the process with the catalyst is what ensures the functionality of a complex adaptive system.

Research: The Unicist Theory integrates the Macrocosmos and the Microcosmos

An international research consortium is being organized to confirm the hypothesis that the unicist theory is the integrator of the macrocosmos and the microcosmos. The purpose of this theory is to provide a framework to forecast the evolution of adaptive entities considering their restricted and wide contexts.

The Unicist Theory explains the evolution and dynamics of complex adaptive entities, whether they are natural entities or artificial entities. This theory is based on the discovery of the triadic structure of the ontogenetic intelligence of nature, which drove to a universal application. Access a synthesis of the theory: https://www.unicist-school.org/complexity-sciences/unicist-theory/

This theory describes the universal structure of the unified field in nature that is applicable to all complex adaptive entities, whatever their kind. It needs to be considered that the unified field has a triadic structure that is homologous to the structure of the ontogenetic intelligence of nature. Unicist concept was the name given to this triadic structure.

The Macrocosmos

The structure of unicist concepts allows defining the structure of the evolution of nature (living beings), of the universe and of any complex adaptive system or environment. It emulates the functionality, dynamics and evolution of any adaptive environment, whatever its quality. Access the Unicist Library: https://www.unicist.com/flexpaper/flex-files/collection-unicist-r-and-d/unicist_ontology_evolution_en5_b/

The structures of the concepts define the positive potential energy that is implicit in the objects that integrate these concepts, which define the energy of the double dialectical actions that can be seen in the expansion of the universe and the gravitational force that sustains this expansion.

These two functions are homologous with the active and entropic function and the energy conservation function of the unicist evolutionary approach.

The Microcosmos

The credibility or functionality zone behaves like a “micro-cosmos”. Its functionality is compatible and homologous to what is known as quantum mechanics.
Access the Unicist Library: https://www.unicist.com/flexpaper/flex-files/general/wp_unicist_mechanics_en/

While the active function works as “waves”, the energy conservation function works as “particles”.

  1. A particle is an object which is sub-atomic and has a definite mass and charge.
  2. A wave is a disturbance that propagates through space and time, usually with transference of energy.

This implies that a given reality works as “waves and particles”.

Synthesis

The format of this research project fully depends on the participants of the research project. Until the end of this year, The Unicist Research Institute expects to find associates to integrate a physicist, a biologist, a mathematician and an epistemologist that have an extreme level of abstraction capacity and are active in this field or a homologous field. There will also be a group of volunteers participating in the destructive testing processes.

Functional Knowledge: Integrating Philosophy, Science and Action

The unicist evolutionary approach erased the barriers between philosophy, science and action to deal with reality as a unified field using the Unicist Logic (double dialectical logic).

It integrates

  1. The know-why of things, that cannot be contradictory with philosophy.
  2. The scientific approach to complex systems with open boundaries, that cannot be contradictory with empirical sciences.
  3. The know-how of things, that cannot be contradictory with operational cause-effect thinking.

This is a new “species” that was named “Complexity Sciences” which is based on a pragmatic, structuralist and functionalist framework that differs from the philosophical and empirical approaches to “things”.

It is based on the integration of Eastern and Western philosophies that requires using a superior abstraction and building a superior concretion.

It emulates the functionality of the ontogenetic intelligence of nature. It required integrating philosophy, sciences and actions in a unified field creating a new “species” of knowledge.

The resulting knowledge was named: Functional Knowledge. It is necessary to forecast and influence the evolution of adaptive environments which have, by definition, open boundaries. This approach allowed making possible what was not possible before (in terms of value generation in adaptive environments).

Trends: Work as the driver of the Power of Nations

The Power of Nations is now based on the construction capacity which is given by work and sustained by the non-exerted destruction capacity that we call dissuasion power. This trend also applies to any institution that intends to influence the environment or the market. This is a new trend that requires a new perspective where the value added to the environment and its consistency defines the influential power and the dissuasion power is the core of the defensive strategy.

The Power of Nations

The legitimacy of military expansion became illegitimate in the world. A new power became evident: Work. Work became the power of a nation and technology its catalyst. Military became the necessary dissuasion power to defend the power of Work.

This implies that the economic power has to provide the maximal strategy, the possibility of upgrading to the next step while the dissuasion power developed by the administrative authorities of the country provides the necessary secure environment to grow.

It has to be considered that the economic power is basically individualistic oriented. In the materialistic world the same “thing” cannot be shared. Money is in my pocket or it is in your pocket. It cannot be in both at the same time.

That is why the nature of the materialistic world is the dualism which naturally drives towards fostering activities based on individual initiatives.

This is not necessary at a subsistence level but it is a must if a culture fosters expansion and influence in the environment.

Materialistic activities are naturally driven by individual responsibility. This means that the institutions that develop materialistic activities need to understand and manage the individual needs of their members in order to be successful.

The economic power of a country is strongly influenced by the individual value of work of the culture. Individuals expand the power of a Nation when it is implicit in the archetype.

When it is not the case, the power of a Nation diminishes.

The Power of Country Archetypes is defined by Work
P=W/t

Work implies the capacity of displacing facts in nature in order to generate a usable added value for a society.

Therefore it is implicit that the fundamentals of work are consistent with the different levels of archetypes. We will describe in the following the fundamentals of work in the different archetypes:

1) Social Value of Influential Work

The Power of NationsThe purpose of work in elites of influential archetypes is to generate added value in their societies. To do so their active function is driven by the transforming of nature and the energy conservation function is the need to overcome resource scarcity.

If we see it at an operational level we can define that:

The maximal strategy of the elites is to transform nature driven by the energy focused on knowledge and the personal need that sustains their actions is the self-affirmation of their deeds.

The minimum strategy to overcome resource scarcity is driven by the energy of their capacity to produce and the personal need that sustains their actions is the capacity to manage the time to make things happen.

2) Social Value of Expansive Work

The Power of NationsThe purpose of work in elites of expansive archetypes is to earn value in their societies. To do so their active function is driven by earning money and the energy conservation function is the need to survive.

If we see it at an operational level we can define that:

The maximal strategy of the elites is to earn money driven by the energy focused on their efforts to do so and the personal needs for recognition sustain their actions.

The expansive work driven segments are conservatives that use work “for a living”. Their drivers are the benefits they receive as a counterpart for work.

They influence the subsistent and survival driven segments. Value adding is their utopia.

The minimum strategy is to ensure subsistence, which is driven by the energy of their capacity to collect from the environment and the personal need that sustains their action is the need to “have” things.

3) Social Value of Subsistent Work

The Power of NationsThe purpose of work in elites of surviving archetypes is to follow the rules of survivors’ ethics. To do so their active function is driven by survival actions and the energy conservation function is the need to transfer costs.

 If we see it at an operational level we can define that:

The maximal strategy of the elite is to survive driven by the energy focused on collecting and the personal need “to have” of the elite sustains their actions.

The minimum strategy of the elites that belong to this segment is to transfer costs to the environment and is driven by the energy focused on minimizing efforts.

This minimum strategy is sustained by the personal needs to fulfill their basic needs.

Subsistent work segments are driven by over-adaptive behaviors that make them do what is necessary to obtain the materialistic benefits to survive. They expect to be “adopted” by the environment and judged by their intentions.

4) Social Value of Survivors Work

The Power of NationsThe purpose of work in surviving archetypes is to gain, based on the necessary justifications exerting all the necessary power to obtain the benefit. This is the ethics of stagnated survivors. To do so the active function that drives their survival is the transfer of costs and the energy conservation function is the value appropriation.

If we see it at an operational level, we can define that:

The maximal strategy of the elites is to transfer costs driven by the energy focused on minimizing the efforts and the personal satisfaction of the basic needs sustains their actions.

The minimum strategy is to appropriate value from the environment that is driven by the necessary justifications and sustained by the personal exertion of power.

Conclusion

Understanding that the power of a Nation depends on its capacity to work is something very difficult to accept because it is rather new.

And accepting that the archetype of a culture defines the level of work that is the standard in an environment sounds deterministic and for some people racist. Because it implies that every culture obtains what it produces; that underdevelopment is defined by the underdeveloped, development by the developed and emergent by the emerging.

Power = W/t: Power can be measured in speed

Power can be measured in speed. That is why we say we can make a metaphor and measure the level of development in speed.

If developed culture move at a speed of 100 km/hour, underdeveloped evolve more slowly.

That is why the gap between development and underdevelopment increases from day to day.

But emergent cultures are emergent because they move faster than the developed ones, which means that the gap between emergent cultures and developed cultures decreases from day to day, until the emergent cultures surpass the developed cultures

Exercise: How do Fundamentalists build Sects?

Sectarian behavior is the dominant characteristic of fundamentalism. Sects are not necessarily religious. There are all kinds of sects: religious, military, political and social sects.

SectTo understand fundamentalism it is necessary to find our own fundamentalist behavior. The one who considers that never behaved as one should buy a mirror, because he is probably endangered by the question and is acting as one at the moment.

First step:

The need of a parallel reality

The first step to build a sect is to understand that one needs to create a parallel reality and find people who have the need of the particular reality one is creating.

Second step: Finding the members

The second step is to identify the potential members of the sect. They must be “survivors”. Survivors are individuals who cannot adapt to an environment because of psychological, spiritual, organic or materialistic reasons.

Survivors are everywhere, beginning with marginal individuals and ending in the upper class. One has to know that a survivor is a person who acts like a “black hole” absorbing all the energy he can.

Survivors are “infinite” takers. Nothing ever suffices. To avoid the fear of death, which dominates survivors, they are keepers; they take just for the pleasure to have. Their fear of failure is so dominant that they gather everything, “just in case…”

Third step: Defining the sect model

There are many possible models. The success of a sect is given by the consistency of the sect model with the needs of its members.

The unicist ontology of a sect describes the nature of sects. They all have in common one simple characteristic:

Fundamentalism

Sects are fundamentalistic and fundamentalists always belong to a sect, including the individualistic ones.

Sects are functional to themselves and their members. They create a parallel world with parallel rules. This parallel rules make them powerful if they succeed in the “survivors-raising” process.

Sects require the management of four central concepts:

  • Power
  • A superior moral
  • An Education – indoctrination model
  • A benefit sharing model
