Unicist Ontology of Evolution


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.

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.

Manipulation begins when arguing does not count

The objective of this research was to discover the unicist ontological structure of psychopathic manipulation and detect the signs and symptoms that allow for an early diagnosis of the existence of a manipulator.

The research began by learning from the psychopathic manipulation of children. Just born human beings cannot develop psychopathic behaviors because they have no ethical intelligence and use their instincts to survive. Their actions are just instinctive and they do not search for any secondary benefit.

Children begin their psychopathic manipulation when they already have integrated some ethical rules and want to profit from the environment satisfying needs that are beyond their basic ones.

The unicist structure of manipulation has three components, the manipulator, the manipulated and the benefit (object) that the manipulator is trying to appropriate.

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.

Fallacious myths are necessary to build cohesion

Humans integrate based on their weaknesses and collide based on their strengths. This is self-evident, although it is also a taboo.

But in extreme cases people cannot explicitly accept that they join based on their weaknesses.

Fallacious myths are built to join people without needing to face taboos. Their purpose is to integrate people in spite of existing unbearable weaknesses.

Groups would disgregate if the fallacious myths had not have been built.

That is why they are extremely functional in any culture.

Fallacious myths are social constructions to avoid the disgregation of a group or community, hindering the perception of significant dysfunctional behaviors.

Fallacious myths are necessarily built to cover:

a) Implicit weaknesses that cannot be accepted.
b) Weaknesses that cannot be solved nor faced.

They transform social chronic dysfunctions into acceptable characteristics.

The ambiguity of the perception of adaptive systems

The ontogenetic intelligence of nature defines that, at an essential level, there is a double dialectical behavior that is defined by a double pendulum, oscillating between freedom vs. security and expansion vs. contraction.

This essential evolutionary behavior explains the double meaning of the ambiguous perception.

The mind of the individual is either seeking for freedom or security and is either working at an expansive or at a contractive level.

That is why the double meaning implicit in an ambiguous perception is not hazardous but logical, following the ontogenetic intelligence of the perceiver.

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”

Conditions for a Sustainable Globalization

Designing a global structure requires being able go beyond the interest of one’s country and enter the field of common interests with other countries and specifically the understanding of each of them. This requires an extreme diplomatic effort in order to build a global structure that allows all the participants sustain their own National Interests.

In order for a globalization to be sustainable it requires that the national interest be covered.

There has to be a strong State permitting a powerful diplomacy and there must also be, within the vital space within which the culture operates, a globalization concept that permits to include other cultures.

National Interest

The national interest is the sustainable globalization‘s ultimate purpose. All unstable globalizations ended up collapsing as a result of their lack of coverage of the national interest of one or several of its members.

The national interest is measured in concrete terms regarding the social structure’s functionality, so much so that it ensures its members and their future generations an atmosphere of development in which to grow.

The national interest implicitly refers to evolution, much in the same fashion that the whole sustainable globalization concept does. When there is involution globalization is not possible becoming, in the best of cases, an alliance.
