Did you know that manipulations are never forgotten or forgiven?

Manipulations are non-conscious actions that allow people to profit from the environment while avoiding the responsibility for delivering a counterpart.

Ontogenetic Map of ManipulationBeing non-conscious, manipulators feel no guilt for having appropriated things they did not earn.

Therefore they damage others and have no responsibility because their actions are justified.

As these actions are non-conscious they have no possibilities to “listen” to the environment or learn from it.

The paradox is that those who have been damaged, and are not a psychopathic complement, do not forget or forgive these actions because they know that they will happen again.

It is simple to identify manipulators.

You just need to leave them alone to do something in a field where they manipulated. If they enter into an “active inaction” activity, then they are manipulators.

Fortunately, manipulators have a sad ending.

2012, the Year of the Possible 1

This year The Unicist Research Institute has celebrated the 35th anniversary with the most fruitful research effort in their history having finished more than 600 researches including some of them than demanded far more than 20 years (consciousness, unified field of human adaptive systems, etc). They made 600 new aspects in the field of individual, institutional and social fields become possible.

The unicist approach is based on finding out what is possible in order to focus on it. The unicist approach deals with the “possible”, defined as a noun. It has to be considered that a possibility is a conditional situation while the “possible” is an assertive fact.

What is possible sustains success. Everything that is possible can be achieved. But this has a problem: while it provides the security of what can be done, it demands the freedom of assuming the responsibility for doing it.

The crises in the world happen because something was not “possible” but this situation was disregarded. Failures are always a consequence of someone trying to do something impossible or of something possible that was not done because people did not assume the responsibility.

That is why The Unicist Research Institute promotes:

2012, the year of the “Possible”

Executive Committee

NOTE: The Unicist Research Institute was the pioneer in complexity science research and became the major research organization in the world in the field of human adaptive systems. More than 4,200 unicist ontological researches were developed since 1976 until December 2011 in the field of individual, institutional and social evolution. They included the development of the unicist ontogenetic maps (DNA) of institutions.

Innovation blindness: the trigger for stagnation

An innovative solution is the consequence of a creative personal action to overcome scarcity in a given context in an environment that has the expectation, trust and credibility that a new solution will be found.

All innovations imply change, but not all changes are innovations in the sense it was described. Innovations require the existence of a structural change of how a scarce element is being managed.

Inventions and discoveries are innovations only when they modify the management of scarcity. Inventions and discoveries only exist if the innovation can be apprehended.

The use of an innovation is a condition for its existence. Until this happens it is perceived as an expression of the inventor’s or discoverer’s ego.

A necessary condition to apprehend an innovation’s functionality is its operational recreation. This recreation requires a high level of adaptation to the environment in order to be able to “introject” the functions of the innovation.

Innovation blindness is an unconscious response of individuals who do not perceive the proposed change, when the conditions to make use of it are not given.

The functionality of innovation blindness is the avoidance of energy consumption to introduce a new task in an individual’s brain.

In order to avoid the innovation, the necessary fallacies are built. Thus those who do not have the necessary knowledge to apprehend a new reality are “blind” and those who do not have it but think they do, are blind and deaf.

The consequence of innovation blindness is that individuals cannot see an innovation and cannot hear about it.

Unicist Future Research: The elite in stagnated countries

Stagnated countries are those that cannot evolve with the necessary speed to adapt to the global world.

Describing the archetypical behavior of a culture it can be said that elites provide the active principle of a culture; the final purpose is in the well-being of the mass and the energy conservation is provided by the middle class.

Observing the behavior of the elite of a culture the evolution of the archetype becomes evident.

The elite itself is integrated by different groups. The dominant group of the elite is the one that establishes the trends of the evolution of the archetype. When there is no dominant group, societies’ behavior becomes chaotic.

When there is no dominant group in the elite that drives evolution, to avoid chaos, the government becomes the elite itself. In this case there can be no separation between the State and the government which is a basic condition for the existence of any type of democracy.

Free access to the discovery of the Unicist Ontology of the Collective Unconscious:
https://www.unicist-school.org/peter-belohlavek/wp-content/uploads/2010/03/collective_unconscious_en.pdf

Governments in democratic countries represent all the groups of the society as their administrator to provide well-being and a place for the next generations.

When a culture is stagnated the government positions naturally exerting its power to sustain the elite while such elite just seeks for covering its own interests.

This provokes the need to increase the dualistic and individualistic behaviors in order to ensure the interests of the dominant group. If the government itself is the elite, the exertion of power increases and so does corruption.

All the countries that reversed an involution cycle could make it because the role of the elite changed towards proposing a higher level of archetype to ensure evolution. Usually, this turning point implied the existence of a majority of new members in the elite. This post does not include names of countries to avoid misinterpretations.

Unicist Riddles: Honoring bricks

Somewhere in Central Europe in the XVI Century there was an artisan who became famous in his region because of the bricks he built.

When visitors asked him what he was doing, he always responded with the same word: bricks.

The bricks he built had different shapes and were made with different materials. Among others there were flat, hollow, concave, convex and triangular bricks. When somebody asked why he built them in different shapes, he just looked up and smiled. Just a whisper could be heard back: rigidity and flexibility.

Astonishingly, on the place he worked there were only the bricks he had prepared during that day.

Day after day, the same work. Every morning there was no stock left. It seemed as if the bricks had disappeared over night.

He had a secret young admirer who spent hours trying to learn from him. When the young apprentice asked: why?, the answer was always the same: rigidity and flexibility.

Although he became old he was still enthusiastic building bricks.

But suddenly he disappeared. As he was an icon in the region, people began to look for him until they abandoned the effort, considering that he had probable passed away.

Years later, his young admirer had become a famous architect known because of the solidity of his constructions.

What is your secret? was the question everyone posed to the architect.

The bricks, was his answer, and people inevitable laughed.

He always smiled back as an answer and continued his way.

One day there was a terrible earthquake in the region. All the constructions but the buildings of the architect were damaged.

When the reconstruction began people said that they needed to learn from this architect to rebuild secure houses.

I agree, said one of the leaders in a group of neighbors, but it is said that there is a small town, across the Black River that suffered no damages at all, he emphasized.

Following the rumor, they decided to visit that town. A group of neighbors, including the architect, began to walk trying to find the town crossing the Black River. But in those days the Black River was considered a sacred place. Although the river was not deep, no one dared to cross it because it was said that the one who tried to cross it walking, would die in the attempt.

They had to find a natural bridge to cross the river. After several hours of walking, they found a bridge but it was not a natural one, it was hand made. It was a very narrow bridge but a very solid and flexible one.  So they carefully began to cross it. The journey continued. Very soon they found a pathway and followed it. It drove them to the small nice town that was totally undamaged.

As soon as they approached the first buildings someone said that they were using the bricks developed by the architect.

They are not mine! responded the architect while he began to scratch his head.

This cannot be happening was the only thought he had in his mind.

The visitors were welcomed as soon as they approached the church.

Why did you have no damages produced by the earthquake? was the immediate question.

A neighbor of the town pointed his finger to a small house: Go there! he said.

And there they went.

As soon as the door was opened a very old man appeared.

Master!!! said the architect…How come?
Rigidity and flexibility was his only answer… And they embraced in a hug.

Question: what is a brick?

Riddles have many solutions. In the Far East, riddles are used to develop internal freedom and responsibility. Next week one of the answers will be published in this blog.

Market Growth: Consumerism is driven by fear and guilt

From a unicist ontological point of view consumerism is the habit of buying things that are unnecessary and are not used after they were bought.

It can be said that consumerism is an addiction that follows the rules of addictive behavior. People enter in this addiction in order to compensate their lack of self-esteem and autonomy.

Consumerism provides an instant of pleasure that ends as soon as no functionality can be found for what has been bought. The next purchase will provide the next instant of pleasure.

Fear of social exclusion and the guilt for not being able to fill the standards of a group are the main external drivers of consumerism.

The social benefit of consumerism is that it expands the economic activity of a society by fostering human work to have the money to consume.

Economic expansion requires a certain level of consumerism that varies according to the values of a culture.

Knowledge to Influence Adaptive Systems

Businesses are an example of adaptive systems and require dealing with their integrity in order to influence them to achieve objectives. A paradigmatic case is to “make” an adaptive system grow, e.g. a business.

It is necessary to have an integrated knowledge to influence the evolution of adaptive systems. Changes in adaptive systems cannot be pulled nor pushed. Evolution needs to be catalyzed in order to achieve possible goals.

Catalyzing implies installing objects in the processes that work as “strange attractors” to produce the results they were created for. To do so it is necessary to develop a conceptual design of the problem in order to integrate all the elements that are part of the system.

To achieve the goal of having reliable knowledge of an adaptive system it is necessary to have both the fundamental knowledge and the technical analytical knowledge.

Fundamental knowledge

The knowledge of the fundamentals of a reality is basic for individuals’ actions. It is stored in the long term memory and allows spontaneous actions in real-time.

The conscious knowledge of the fundamentals of a given reality has the following characteristics.

1) Defines possibilities
It defines the field of what is possible to be achieved.
2) Allows front-view
It makes the perception of the final picture of actions possible.
3) Destructive tests
It requires making the necessary destructive tests of their validity in order to measure the limits of their functionality.
4) Sustains maximal strategies
It allows going beyond the boundaries of the present situation because it works in homologous fields.
5) Backward-thinking: Pert thinking
It is based on seeing the solution and starting from the conceptual output when developing taxonomic action plans.
6) Future oriented
In the short or the long run all living beings will act according to their nature. Understanding the nature, defined by the fundamentals,  allows forecasting the future.
7) Systemic & Conceptual thinking
Systemic and Conceptual thinking are necessary to apprehend the fundamentals using conceptual thinking to develop taxonomies using systemic thinking.

Synthesis: Fundamentals are action driven
Fundamentals are necessary to develop activities in real time having the needed speed and acceleration to influence reality.

Technical-analytical knowledge

1) Defines the probabilities
It allows making the analysis of the experiences to define the probabilities of occurrence of facts.
2) Allows rear-view
As it is based on facts and theories it is necessary to analyze the past in order to learn from it.
3) Non-destructive tests
Technical-analytical knowledge works within predefined boundaries. Therefore the knowledge is only valid within these limits. There is no need for destructive tests.
4) Sustains minimum strategies
Minimum strategies require a strict procedure to make things happen without depending on external elements. Technical analytical knowledge allows developing these procedures within the boundaries individuals can manage.
5) Forward-thinking: Gantt thinking
It defines the elements that need to be built and integrated following a step by step approach. It implies dividing reality into “independent” objects to integrate them afterwards.
6) Past & Present Oriented
Analysis requires the existence of elements that are being observed, measured and analyzed. Therefore it is based on the pre-existence of these elements.
7) Analytic & Systemic thinking
Analytic thinking is necessary to divide reality into manageable elements and systemic thinking is necessary to reintegrate them in a functional unit.

Synthesis: Technical-analytical knowledge is control driven
Technical analytical knowledge is necessary to measure and compare the existing facts with the objective that had to be achieved.

Producing growth

A system grows when it appropriates more energy than it has spent to produce it. This implies that it needs to generate an added value to the environment that is higher than the cost to produce it.

Growth problems are always big changes

A big change is necessary when an adaptive system, e.g. a business, wants to grow beyond the natural growth driven by the trends of the environment.

Big changes are energy consuming. Therefore it has to be clear if the energy is available. The use of objects is an energy multiplier. Objects are a mass that provides a source of energy to influence change.

The energy available depends on the technology and the knowledge to make use of the technology. Objects are part of the technology that has to be available.

Most of the failures in growth happen because the energy required is not available. This might happen because of the lack of hardware (including objects), software or peopleware.

Knowledge includes the human factor and defines the possibility to generate additional added value to go beyond the existing boundaries to expand the vital space of the system in order to make growth happen.

Conclusions

Managing both the fundamental and the technical-analytical knowledge is necessary to influence adaptive systems to grow.

The knowledge of fundamentals will give you the front-view to produce the growth and the technical-analytical knowledge will give you the rear-view to control the process.
