Dualistic thinking drives towards non-adaptive behaviors

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.

The Ontological Functionality of Myths in Social Evolution

Myths guide cultures providing a short path for actions and a framework of shared social fallacies to avoid the perception of their weaknesses.

Therefore myths include “true” and “false” aspects. The first ones to guide actions and the second ones to hide the weaknesses that are not functional to the culture.

It can be said that laws work as myths in a culture. Laws establish a way to behave and implicitly hide all the dysfunctional aspects of the society.

From an essential operational point of view it can be said that myths are integrated by short-paths that provide a solution, the freedom is given by the automated behavior that allows intuitive actions, the security is provided by the values shared by the society and the weaknesses are covered by shared social fallacies that work as fallacious myths.

35th Anniversary of The Unicist Research Institute

June 1976 was the beginning of the research of evolution in the field of complexity science. It was focused on approaching the nature of reality which required an ontological approach to the basic research and an object driven approach in the field of application.

The research drove to the discovery of the ontogenetic intelligence of nature, the unicist ontology, the unicist logic, the complexity science research methodology and the human ontointelligence.

This provided the basic knowledge to develop more than 3,500 applicative researches in the field of individual, institutional and social evolution that were finished until September 2010. The research work is still ongoing.

We would like to share with you this celebration giving you access to the book on:

Unicist Ethics: The Ethics of Doers

We consider it will allow you to expand your boundaries in work and businesses.

You can access the book at: http://www.unicist.org/deb_doers.php

This anniversary is a very special one, because it follows a turning point in our global expansion that took place during the last year.

Executive Committee

NOTE: The Unicist Research Institute is the major research organization in the world in its specialty based on more than 3,500 ontological researches in complexity sciences, developed since 1976 until September 2010, applied to individual, institutional and social evolution. The applicative researches are based on the discovery of the Ontogenetic Intelligence of Nature and the consequent Unicist Ontology of Evolution.
