Unicist Predictors: Anticipating the future based on facts

Predictors are signs that can be read to anticipate the future. They are ambiguous signs that require to be read considering the conditions of the restricted and wide contexts.

PredictorsPredictors are observable events that make the fundamentals of specific aspects of reality observable.

The fundamentals of a specific reality are able to define a concept if there is a catalyst or a gravitational force that is influencing it.

Everyone uses predictors to interpret actions. For example a smile is a predictor of what can be expected.

Non-verbal communication necessarily includes the observation of “predicting signs” in order to act or react.

The rational use of predictors requires being aware of thee structure of fundamentals that rule a given reality and the external forces of the restricted and wide contexts that influence it.

It is necessary to use predictors to deal with complex adaptive aspects of reality. The unicist algorithms and the unicist ontogenetic maps provide the structure of predictors to be observed and measured to anticipate the future in order to react or exert influence to make things happen.

Hegel, Marx and the Unicist Double Dialectic

Dialectic as defined by Hegel is contradictory with the concept of complex systems. Complex systems are integrated based on the conjunction “and”, and their evolution includes the complementation between the apparent opposites.

This dialectical thinking of Hegel, who considers the synthesis as a result of the opposition between a thesis and an antithesis, permits the construction of parallel realities based on the disintegration of the real world and the construction of a world where the limitless evolution of ideas drives towards an ideal.

Hegel builds an apparently upgrading fallacy.

Marx’s perceives the fallacy implicit in Hegel’s approach but he can not get rid of his dualistic approach to reality and his need to build a better future that only depends on the promotion of an adequate antithesis.

But his materialistic approach hindered him to accept an ethic of added value in the real world.

He built a dialectic based on the definition that thesis is given by an existent myth and the antithesis is a utopia that will change the myth creating a new environment. This implied considering that the utopia is a response to the existing myth.

But in real life, myths limit utopias, sustaining an underlying purpose which is considered a taboo.

Utopias are not responses to myths but reactions to taboos. They are born to change an existing purpose to be achieved.

Marxist dialectic drove to human declination because the fallacy he had built required materialistic absolute ideologies to sustain it.

The perception of dialectics

To perceive dialectics it is necessary to have a high abstraction capacity.

Those who do not have the abstraction capacity consider the dialectical behavior based on observable facts of reality. They cannot differentiate correlations from cause-effect relations.

Instead of seeing the relation between B and C as an effect relation they consider the relation causal, because they perceive the effect limiting function of C as a cause of B’s functionality.

When causal relations cannot be perceived it is not possible to forecast the probabilities of success of actions.

Teamwork: are repairing actions necessary?

In a cooperative teamwork every damage produced by a member to another participant needs to be repaired. This repair is a cost the damager has to pay in order to reconcile with the group.

A repairing action implies regretting the damaging action, doing common good actions (for the members of the group) and substituting what has been damaged.

But this rule does not apply in competitive environments where competition prevails over cooperation. In these environments damagers are not responsible for the damage produced as long as they consider their actions as justified, unavoidable or necessary.

In actual teamwork many of the damaging actions are non-conscious. They are justified if they happen in a competitive environment, but require repair in a cooperative context, (intentions do not count).

The rules of an environment define the cooperative or competitive prevalence. Individuals need to follow these rules to be functional. For example the building of “spirit de corps” requires, on the one hand, the dominance of cooperation in the internal relationship in a group but, simultaneously, a strong competition with the external environment.

Cultures like the Japanese and the German are based on cooperation. The institution of “hara-kiri” is the expression of the need to repair in extreme conditions.

Depending on the goals, cooperation or competition have to prevail or need to be integrated to build social capital. Both are ethical behaviors with different functionalities.

Repairing actions are necessary to build social capital or to cooperate, but are unnecessary in competitive environments. In these environments damages are part of the rules of the game. Sorry, nothing personal… is a saying that suffices.

Erudition is an anti-concept of intellectual behavior

The Unicist Approach to knowledge management defines that the purpose of intellectuals is to adapt to the environment in the less energy consuming way. The paradox is that ordinary people consider erudition as a superior level of intellectualism and admire the erudite considering that s/he can transform data into actions.

Erudition is defined as the addiction of people who use data and information to judge others to build a hypothetical (parallel) reality where they are in control. Erudition is a way to avoid needing to adapt to the environment and expecting that the environment accepts the superior reality the erudite has in her/his mind.

It has to be considered that every activity includes intellectual aspects which allow individuals to understand what they are doing. On the surface, erudition is perceived by the majority as a superior level of knowledge while in fact it is an addiction that hinders the integration of the data the erudite has in mind with the external reality.

An erudite envies the people of the environment who succeed in what they do, having, hypothetically, an extremely lower level of understanding. Erudition as an addiction uses extreme dualistic thinking which is functional to the building of parallel realities. That is why they can only deal with analogical and hypothetical information.

Homologies, which allow integrating information to adapt to the environment, are out of the reach of erudition, because they require the use of a double dialectical logic.

Erudition drives nowhere. Erudite leaders are extremely dangerous when they are in charge of groups because they cannot adapt to the environment and need that individuals follow them into their parallel reality. They are the most dangerous leaders you can imagine, but they are excellent informants for non-erudite leaders.

Complexity Sciences: Unicist Ontogenetic Intelligence of Nature

The unicist approach defines that the living being’s evolution is ruled by its ontogenetic intelligence we call concept. The concept is the functional logical structure of a living being that defines it as unique both in its species and individuality.

Each living being has a central concept, defined using the unicist ontology,  that regulates its evolution and describes its purpose, the procedure under which it faces adaptation to reality and the action guide within which it develops the procedure so as not to trespass the limits of its purpose.

The ontogenetic intelligence is defined, on one hand, by a purpose and an action principle that puts the purpose into action sustaining its functionality and evolution or involution.

On the other hand, the same purpose is sustained by the energy conservation principle that complements the purpose to avoid it being changed by the action principle.

The concept describes a living being’s functionality. It defines its intrinsic concept.

Living beings naturally transfer this functionality to the environment where they act, depositing functions that have the living being’s same logical structure and that generate the existence of extrinsic concepts.

These concepts have the same logical structure but they are not implicit in inanimate beings; they are deposited by the living beings they are functional to.

Unicist reflection to build solutions

Unicist reflection is a pilot test driven solution approach. It was developed to deal with complex human adaptive systems, such as businesses, to develop scenarios, diagnoses and strategies to achieve possible results. It allows dealing with the ambiguity of reality.

Unicist reflection is an approach to complex human adaptive systems to understand their nature, define the possibilities to influence them, apprehend the algorithms that allow exerting influence and generate added value.

Unicist reflection has no relationship with other introspective approaches like religious introspection, transcendent meditation, yoga or other technologies that have been developed for different purposes.

 

The reflection process can be synthesized in the following steps:

0 – Focus on the solution

1 – Dealing with projections

– Destructive pilot tests

2 – Dealing with Introjections

– Non-destructive – Destructive pilot tests

3 – Dealing with integration

– Non-destructive pilot tests

4 – Dealing with communion

– Results validation

5 – Dealing with the unified field 

From an essential point of view, this synthesis can be described as

1)      It reflects outside

2)      It reflects inside

3)      The outside vanishes

4)      The inside vanishes

5)      All is one

Unicist Reflection requires having a final picture in mind. It requires positive thinkers; individuals who see the bottle half full, not half empty.

Unicist reflection implies assuming full responsibility for results. And, of course, full responsibility implies being in the solitude of power but having the power of solitude.

The Unicist Approach to Forecast Complex Adaptive Systems

Evolution laws rule the evolution of living beings and beings with artificial life. They are part of the ontogenetic intelligence of a living being. These laws were discovered and validated using the ontology of evolution in the fields of individual, institutional and social evolution during 20 years.

The laws are:

First law: The law of intrinsic evolution and involution

Second law: The law of energy optimization

Third law: The law of gravitational forces

Fourth law: The law of the double pendulum

Fifth law: The law of mutation

Sixth law: The law of conflict

Seventh law: The law of influence

In order to forecast a complex system it is necessary to have the map of the concepts integrating it.

This “self-organizers” map aims at developing the functional structure of a given reality to be able to forecast the possible changes produced by the effects of external gravitating forces or internal conceptual structures in a unified field.

At present, the conceptual structures that belong to three fields of human behavior are already developed:

  1. The individual field
  2. The institutional field
  3. The social field

By strictly following the facts that occur in reality, it can be inferred whether they correspond to facts that are functional or dysfunctional to a previously existing conceptual balance. From this on, it can be inferred whether these facts trigger changes in the previously existing “normality” or are just different shapes adopted by the same normality.

Thus, having the conceptual map of a reality, a forecast of its evolution can be developed always remembering that there are so many ambiguous elements in reality that the result will have:

“certainty of error and probability of nearness”

Human Double Dialectical Behavior

The Unicist Dialectics allows dealing with human adaptive systems managing the integration of their double dialectical behavior.

With this double dialectical approach (purpose – active function, purpose – energy conservation function) one can understand the structure of an adaptive system and its evolution.

Unicist Dialectics is based on the emulation of adaptive systems, emulating the ontogenetic intelligence of nature (purpose, active principle, energy conservation principle).

Its application to human adaptive systems made the emulation of individual, institutional and social evolution possible.

To approach a reality integrated by three elements with a dualistic mind it is necessary to consider it as a dualistic integration of binary elements. To perceive dialectics it is necessary to have a high abstraction capacity.

Those who do not have the abstraction capacity consider the dialectical behavior based on observable facts of reality. They cannot differentiate essential correlations from cause-effect relations.

Individuals who have the necessary functional intelligence and the will to add value to an environment, and are able to see the double dialectics, develop two different actions to ensure results: on the one hand, they impulse action and on the other hand, they develop actions to inhibit entropy.

Individuals who approach reality using unicist thinking define strategies based on taxonomies and planed actions to influence the environment.

Ambiguous language makes human evolution possible

Ambiguity implies having two possible operational meanings within a sole concept. This is implicit in the etymology of the word ambiguity.

These two meanings imply on one hand a meaning that is functional to human internal freedom and on the other hand another meaning that is functional to the need of internal security.

But there is another ambivalence in an ambiguity which is based on its functionality towards expansion or contraction.

This description is an example of ambiguity. Only an ambiguous model can grasp an ambiguous reality.

An ambiguous language is essential when a communication between two individuals is based on mutual responsibility. Ambiguous communication requires biunivocity. Inter-communication is necessary to deal with ambiguity in order to agree on a common operational meaning.

Responsibility avoidance deals with operational language

An operational communication is univocal. Therefore the transmitter is responsible for the functionality of the communication. The responsibility of the receiver is to decode the message, without needing to interpret possible meanings.

Reality is ambiguous when we are dealing with complex problems because the cause-effect relations are biunivocal. In this case ambiguous language is necessary to deal with them in order to assume the responsibility for results. But it has to be considered that efficiency is based on the use of straightforward operational language.

The fallacious myths in communication

Dealing with ambiguity requires knowledge, awareness and responsibility. Managing the nature of businesses implies dealing with their ambiguity.

An enormous stupefying effort to minimize human responsibility has been made by:

a)  Honoring common sense although, at least since Plato, it is known that it is based on rigid experience-based thoughts that might or not be valid for a different reality.

b)  Disqualifying ambiguous communication by projecting multiple meanings on its interpretation to avoid the responsibility of managing complex problems.

That is why it is necessary to have the technical analytical knowledge, a high level of consciousness and having assumed the responsibility to produce a predefined result.

The path towards managing ambiguity is long but interesting.

Learning to deal with ambiguity

Ambiguity management can be learned if an individual knows and accepts her/his level of internal freedom.

A football champ once said:

“The more I train the luckier I am”

Solving riddles is a simple way to approach ambiguity. Riddles have many solutions. In the Far East, riddles are used to develop internal freedom and responsibility.

The end of the war between Power, Religion and Science?

There is a natural cold war between Power, Religion and Science. Power sustains authority, Religion sustains the Truth and Science unveils reality.

The solution of this essential conflict has been the alliances that were and are being established usually between two of the members of the triad at expense of the third one.

The CERN Experiment, developing the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is a phenomenal alliance of the three aspects (Power, Religion and Science) and is giving birth, perhaps, to a new integrated approach to complex realities.

We strongly recommend accessing a short information on the CERN Experiment at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PJ2q8WUire0

It could be a new starting point in human relations. It might implicate the real end of the “Galileo’s Era”.
