Take opportunities using Greek + Chinese philosophy 1

Kairos

According to the Greek mythology, Kairos was the god for the right or opportune moment (the supreme moment) that allowed humans exceed the limits of their fate.

The Greeks had two words to refer to time: chronos and kairos. The first one refers to chronological or sequential time, the latter signifies a time between, a moment of indeterminate time in which something special happens.

Chronos was a quantitative measure while Kairos had qualitative nature.

As it can be seen on the image of Kairos, the god of opportunities was bald on the back of his head. This meant that opportunities could only be taken when they were coming. When they were going there was no way to grasp them.

That is why an apportunity can only be seized if one’s mind is prepared and the person is able to see it before it passes. Opportunities are such because they change the fate of people.

The Chinese Perspective

Chinese philosophy considers that any crisis is integrated by a threat and an opportunity.

Crisis - Opportunity

The question we want to explore is: why can not people see the opportunities Kairos brings about?

Our hypothesis is that the Chinese are right; the opportunities always come together with a threat, and unfortunately most of the people see the threat of the opportunity and cannot see the chance that is being opened.

When fear prevails, people need to wait until the threat passes before trying to grasp the opportunity. But, paradoxically, then they cannot grasp it because the head is bald and the opportunity has been lost.

By integrating both aspects we can see that only those whose minds are prepared and have the courage to manage the threat that is implicit in any opportunity are able to grasp the hair of Kairos when he is coming.

Corruption inhibitors in cultures and institutions

Corruptors profit from the degradation they produce.

Corruption degrades cultures until they become a group of survivors led by stagnant survivors. This implies that the final stage, which implies that cultures become to live in an endless transition of manipulative leaders, is that individualism, which is the driver of corruption, prevails over the needs of the culture.

The morality of intentions prevails over the morality of actions which drives individuals into the survival ethical intelligence. Survival has no rules nor codes unless people need accomplices to survive.

The Corruption Inhibitor

That is why evolving cultures have a structural corruption inhibitor that hinders that the society enters a massive survival attitude.

Corruption is inhibited when there is a functional ethics which implies that functionality prevails over intentions, the justice is focus on ensuring equal opportunities for all and the society is transparent.

Expansive justice implies that individual action is protected by social repair and not only individual repair and there is a social sanction of all actions that are not within the system of a society.

This is only possible if there is a social transparency of the actions and individuals are identified based on their actions and added value in a society.

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.

The unicist theory expanded the boundaries of sciences

The unicist theory expanded the frontiers of sciences making the scientific approach to complex adaptive systems possible without needing to use arbitrary palliatives to transform complex systems into systemic systems in order to be able to research them.

Paradoxically this is a breakthrough and a back to basics. On the one hand it is a breakthrough because it changed the paradigms of scientific research. On the other hand it is a back to basics because it drives sciences to deal with the nature of reality.

The unicist logical approach opened the possibilities of managing complexity sciences using a pragmatic, structured and functionalist approach.
Unicist Complexity Research

The unicist approach to complexity is based on the research of the unicist ontological structure of a complex adaptive system which regulates its evolution.

This is based on emulating the structure of the unicist ontogenetic intelligence of nature considering that every functional aspect of reality has a unique unicist ontological structure.

The approach to ontological structures of reality requires going beyond the dualistic thinking approach and being able to use the double dialectical logic to approach complex adaptive systems.

The research in complexity science needs to have its own format for its presentation that has a structural difference with the papers for systemic sciences (abstract, introduction, materials and methods, discussion, literature). It has to be considered that:

1)      A complex system has open boundaries which implies that the experiences cannot be reproduced they can only be emulated in homologous fields.

2)      Having open boundaries there is no possibility of building artificial experiences to research a complex adaptive system.

3)      As it has open boundaries it cannot be observed. The observers are part of the system. This implies that a peer review can only be made based on the use of destructive tests in homologous fields.

4)      The conditions of the environment change, (No one can bathe twice in the same river – Heraclitus) which means that an apparently same experience might produce different results.

5)      The elements of a complex adaptive system are integrated by the conjunction “and” with multiple bi-univocal relationships. Therefore there are no univocal cause-effect relationships; this implies that the only valid measurable aspects are the results obtained.

6)      Predictions of results and measurement of the achievements are the way the validity of the knowledge of the structure of a complex adaptive system is confirmed.

7)      The discussions with other opinions are meaningless because complex adaptive systems have open boundaries and only its application allows confirming the knowledge obtained.

8)      Multiple real applications in different homologous and analogous fields, preceded by a prediction of the results that will be obtained, need to be done to confirm the knowledge of a complex adaptive system.

9)      The method of the research is in the application itself which has to correspond to the field of activity of the complex adaptive system.

The research work

As researchers are part of any complex adaptive system that is being researched, a unicist reflection process is needed to develop the process. This implies a full involvement of the researcher in the system following an action-reflection-action process to find the unicist ontological structure that regulates the evolution of the complex adaptive system.

The presentation of the knowledge of complex adaptive systems includes two different levels of information:

a)      The abstract: which includes the discoveries of the unicist ontological structures and the ontogenetic maps written in unicist standard language

b)      The research process: which describes the research process

The basic steps of the research process are:

1)      Develop the hypothetical structure of the ontology.

2)      Analyze the ontology and divide it into sub-ontologies following the laws of complementation and supplementation (only when necessary and possible).

3)      Define observable results that need to be considered to validate the ontology.

4)      Define the application fields of the ontology to validate its functionality.

5)      Develop the applications beginning with destructive and non-destructive pilot tests to forecast reality.

6)      Develop at least five experiences in the application field differing completely one from the other.

7)      Develop forecasts of at least three periods with full certainty.

8)      Restart the research process every time a deviation occurs.

Conclusion

It becomes evident that the field of researching complex adaptive systems is for doers, who assumed the responsibility for results and have the necessary inner freedom to emulate in mind adaptive systems that are in motion. The use of the knowledge does not require knowing how it was produced.

Complex problem solving, psychic economy and over-adaptive approaches

The complexity of a problem is an objective / functional characteristic and not a matter of opinions. By just focusing on three aspects of complexity it is possible to define if a problem is complex:

Complex Problem Solving1) Does the problem have open boundaries or is it isolated?

2) Is it ruled by univocal cause-effect relationships or are they bi-univocal ones?

3) Is it integrated by variables or is it necessary to apprehend it as a unified field?

When the problem is complex, it is necessary to apprehend its concept in order to be able to manage the dynamics of its unified field. On the other hand, when the problem is simple, a systemic approach suffices because the problem can be managed as being static.

The psychic economy principle defines that the brain always uses the less energy consuming pathway to solve a problem. It is necessary to know the actual problem an individual is solving in order to understand if the pathway s/he chose is functional or not.

An adaptive approach to reality is an energy consuming activity, which requires making the effort of apprehending the concept that defines the “stem cell” of the solution in order to be able to solve a complex problem.

This is meaningful when individuals are truly solution focused, because the energy is reloaded as soon as “the solution” has been achieved. But this effort becomes meaningless when individuals are focused on developing “their solution” and not “the solution”.

Over-adaptive approaches are low-energy consuming activities that suffice to deal with systemic problems and to avoid personal risks when developing solutions. That is why individuals switch from an adaptive approach to an over-adaptive approach when they have no full commitment with the building of solutions and do not manage the concept of what is being done.

Introducing Adaptiveness in Business is a Complex Problem

Complex problem solving is for the few. That is why the learning of complex aspects solving is for those who have assumed the responsibility of simplifying the processes to allow ordinary people to work with them.

Knowledge of Adaptive SystemsThe apprehension of complexity in business requires four basic conditions:

  1. Being driven by a superior ethical intelligence that drives actions towards value generation for “others”. It has to be considered that the mind inhibits the apprehension of concepts for one’s benefit. Only pre-concepts or anti-concepts are perceivable for those who seek for personal benefits.
  2. Being able to reflect until the “gamma brain waves” become accessible to apprehend concepts.
  3. Having both experiences and the necessary technical-analytical knowledge in the specific field that allow an intuitive approach without being driven by anti-intuition.
  4. Being able to consciously emulate the complex system in mind in order to become part of it which requires having the necessary language to do so.

These conditions are necessary but, anyhow, at the end, “there will be certainty of error and probability of nearness”.

If these conditions are not given, individuals become “observers” of a given reality and cannot apprehend the complex system as such and can only make systemic approaches leaving complexity aside.

The unicist reflection is necessary to manage complex problems

Unicist reflection is a pilot test driven solution approach. This approach 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.

Did you know that comprehending implies emulating reality?

Comprehending a problem requires being able to emulate its functionality in mind. To emulate a problem in mind it is necessary to have a sound knowledge of all the operational and structural aspects that make it work. But a problem can only be truly understood when the individual has an actual solution in mind.

emulation-realityComprehending is the stage that precedes action. When a problem has been comprehended, action becomes a simple step that materializes what has been emulated in mind. The thinking process of Nikola Tesla can be considered a role model to be followed.

Emulation requires building a homologous reality in mind that needs to have the same concept of the actual external problem.

It also requires being able to envision reality from a functional point of view while experiencing it. Envisioning implies seeing the positive functionality of a solution. People who see “the glass half empty” cannot deal with solutions.

Cause-effect relationships can easily be emulated. That is why the understanding of systemic entities, which may become complicated because of the quantity of variables involved, is essentially simple because dualistic thinking is functional to build the emulation.

But complex problems, that include no cause-effect relationships, have to be considered as unified fields, that require the use of the double dialectical logic in order to emulate them.

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.

Did you know that the concepts drive people’s behavior?

The research on human behavior showed that the “concepts” people have in mind define their attitude in a specific field. This discovery allows forecasting people’s actions based on knowing the concepts they use and inferring the concepts they have based on their actions.

Ontogenetic Map of LeadershipConceptual intelligence allows building in mind the concepts that emulate aspects of reality and work as “drivers”, “catalysts” or “gravitational forces of an individual’s behavior.

Concepts drive actions when individuals are fully adapted in an environment; for example a person who is aware of her/his concept of “leadership” and this role is fully adapted to the environment

Concepts catalyze actions when the leadership concept of the individual is functionally above the standards of the environment. In this case a leader that works within the standards is necessary to work as a driver of the actions of a group.

Concepts work as gravitational forces of behavior if the leadership concept the individual has is dysfunctional in an environment but the individual wants to adapt to the context. This implies that the change the individual wants to do is inhibited by the concept he has.

That is why becoming aware of the concept the individual has and its functionality increases her/his power.
