Unicist double dialectics requires using unicist logic that makes adaptive processes possible. Simple dialectics is the consequence of using dualistic thinking to deal with reality.
Dualistic thinking necessarily fosters non-adaptive behavior driven by idealistic, materialistic, spiritual or egocentric needs. Dualism is necessary when personal needs prevail over functional adaptation.
The consequence of dualistic thinking is that people believe in dialectical behavior. Adaptation is impossible when using dualistic thinking.
The benefit of using simple dialectics is that it transforms humans in judges of reality instead of responsible participants. “Right/wrong”, “nice/ugly”, “thesis/antithesis” are just examples of this way of thinking.
Why is simple dialectics so addictive?
There are several reasons:
1) It provides the foundations for rational univocal thinking which sustains the cause-effect approach to deal with simple problems.
2) It is the less energy consuming thinking process because it uses the natural binary neural process which is implicit in instinctive behavior.
3) It allows individuals to make value judgments disguised as rational processes. This provides the perception of being in power.
But simple dialectics has proven to be fallacious to understand and influence evolution. That is why simple dialectical approaches to reality drive to non-adaptive behaviors stimulated by the needs of domination, criticism, survival and inaction of individuals.

NOTE: The Unicist Research Institute is the pioneering complexity science research organization developing solutions for complex adaptive systems using ontogenetic ontologies and object driven technologies. More than 3,500 ontological researches were developed since 1976 until September 2010 in the field of individual, institutional and social evolution.
