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.

Alliances for Country Future Scenario Planning

The Unicist Research Institute has started the development of alliances with local Future Research Organizations in order to provide this technology to the Planning Ministries of different countries.

The Unicist Theory of Evolution allows developing Country Archetypes respecting the rules of the Ontogenetic Intelligence of Nature that are implicit in any human organization.

It is the basic approach to deal with the fundamentals of countries making a reliable long term planning possible. There have to be some basic conditions to make this possible. If you are interested, we recommend watching the video on “The Nature of Democracy”, live recorded lecture by Peter Belohlavek:  http://www.unicist.org/oucu_democracy.php

Natural Laws of Societies: The Unicist Standard in Strategy

All the countries have emergent, developed and underdeveloped aspects. The dominant niche defines the level of development of a country.

Peter Belohlavek’s e-book provides the natural laws of business strategy. We strongly recommend downloading and printing this book in order to use it as a bedside book until you manage the natural laws of business strategy.

It will shift your business life.

Some of the laws follow as an example:

  1. Underdeveloped countries are such because they did not have the strength, power or hard elements to adapt dynamically to the developed world.
  2. Seen from the underdeveloped standpoint others are responsible for one’s underdevelopment, and from a developed standpoint it is always one’s responsibility.
  3. The evolution differs depending if a country is underdeveloped or developed. The main difference is that underdeveloped countries evolution is slower and interrupted by mutually annulling breakthroughs.
  4. Seen from the developed point of view the commercial competitive strategy in underdeveloped countries is non-equilibrated.
  5. …..

The Unicist Theory of Evolution and Generational Evolution

How does generational evolution work? Why do many adolescents need addictions? Which is the environment for evolution or involution?

Successors need to overcome their parents. That is the golden rule for social and individual evolution. This implies that the evolution of the next generation depends on its capacity to build upon what already exists.

Metaphorically it can be said that in evolutionary cultures the roof of the parents is the floor of their children. In involutionary cultures the roof of the children is the floor of their parents.

To build upon the existing establishment it is necessary that we all improve the implicit weaknesses of what we have inherited. Extreme competition with the inherited establishment drives to a never ending story of frustration and entropy.

These are some conclusions of the research on Generational Evolution in Societies developed at The Unicist Research Institute. The research began in 1980 with the objective to find explanations to social evolution and to the worldwide expansion of addictions.

The reading of Diana Belohlavek’s book on Talent development is strongly recommended.

When living in parallel realities becomes a need

Parallel realities become a need when individuals cannot deal with their own evolution.

Parallel realities are imaginary situations installed beyond the real world that are built upon fallacious beliefs or needs.

Fallacies are functional to humans. Individual fallacies reduce personal energy consumption, and fallacious utopias ensure the perception that something useful will be done.

While utopias function as action drivers, fallacious utopias function as empty “action promises”. Fundamentalism, considered as an objective characteristic an individual needs to survive, requires “living” in a parallel world to avoid self-perception.

To build this parallel world individuals use their projection capacity to deposit on the environment what they need to perceive in order to feel comfortable.

Addictions, the natural response to hopelessness

Addictions are a natural response to an uncertain environment in which a person feels hopeless, impotent and without identity.

When these conditions are given, individuals enter the shelter of addictions.

Addictions have a secondary benefit to help people to deal with hate, anxiety, illusions and guilt.

Addictions help to deal with these self-destructive feeling in a paradoxical way. While the individual is installed in the parallel world he feels fulfilled, but, after he returns to the real world, he feels worse than before and the need for addictive stimuli rises.

Addictions are infinite. The more unbalanced an individual is, the “heavier” the addictions he adopts.

Considering the level of self-destruction or destruction four segments can be characterized:
1)    Pleasure addictions: providing instants of extreme pleasure.
2)    Rational/spiritual addictions: providing sensation of absolute empowerment.
3)    Suicidal addictions: providing the power of “dancing” beyond human limits.
4)    Terrorist addictions: providing the power of feeling God.

Liberation from guilt: A business as old as humanity

Individuals feel guilty if they cannot overcome what they have inherited.

Guilt corrodes humans’ physical, psychological and spiritual health. Therefore “the liberation of guilt” has been a business that existed since mankind exists. It has been  run from witchdoctors to psychologists.

Psychology opened a new perspective to human health. But it also settled the groundings of extreme individualism. The western hemisphere jumped from a sanctification of parents to blaming them for all the problems individuals have.

The problem of leading cultures and surviving cultures

The problem of the new generations of leading cultures is naturally the feeling of inferiority complexes to overcome the existing culture if they are in a leading environment.

Individuals have two alternatives: build upon the existing establishment or compete with it. Competition drives adolescents to guilt and the response requires needing to hate the situation and the individuals involved in it.

The paradox is that building upon an existing environment is also a competition. Building upon an establishment implies modifying the structure of the implicit weaknesses of a culture. This is something feasible for the next generation unless it was educated in an individualistic environment.

It has to be considered that individualism is the most degraded state of a culture. It implies that the interests of individuals prevail over the interests of the group.

A culture involves when individualism prevails. Surviving cultures include necessarily a dominant individualism. This is not the case of subsistent cultures where the group prevails over individuals. Surviving cultures produce survivors who necessarily are multi-addictive and need to behave as fundamentalists.

Evolution implies paying prices

Accepting the validity of the establishment is a condition for evolution.

Over-adaptation to the establishment implies its sanctification, and drives to the avoidance of the responsibility of improving the environment.

Cultures that foster rebel individualistic behaviors necessarily generate involution. Both over-adaptation and individualistic rebellion drive to involution.

Evolution implies competing with the establishment improving what has been received in order to ensure evolution and create an own place in order to satisfy the personal needs.

The first part, the improvement of what has been received is a work with a social responsibility, the second part deals with the ego of the person who has assumed the responsibility.

A culture is in involution if individuals begin with their own egocentric desires. In both extremes, leading cultures and surviving cultures, addictions of any kind become a natural response.

Guilt liberators produce paradoxical results when they sustain their clients by “insufflating air” into their clients’ ego.

It is up to you. The prices to be paid are never low. You must believe in your capacity and see the implicit weaknesses of what you inherited.

The Unicist Standard for Country Future Research

unicist country future researchThis open program is an entrance to future research using the Unicist Standard.

Future as such doesn’t exist. Therefore when people talk about future research they are using a metaphor.

The unicist approach to future research has been develop by Peter Belohlavek and is based on finding the natural structures of a reality in the past, using the hard data of the present and infer the possible future.

The probabilities of success of the projects that are being analyzed can be defined after the possible future has been defined.

You will be learning about the drivers of countries’ scenarios that define the natural future environment that has to be accepted as a limit or gravitational force for your business.

Presentation of the Unicist Standard Applied to Evolution

The Unicist Standard applied to evolution began with the application of the evolution and involution laws and the understanding of complementation and supplementation laws. It uses the unicist ontological structure to emulate the structure of nature.

Fundamentalists are business killers, they live in parallel realities

Avoid people who need to be right. They live in parallel realities. Parallel realities are imaginary situations installed beyond the real world that are built upon fallacious beliefs or needs.

Fallacies are functional to humans. Individual fallacies reduce personal energy consumption, and fallacious utopias ensure the perception that something useful will be done.

Everybody lives in different realities. Vacations, family life, jobs, communitarian activities, are examples of different spheres (realities) in which individuals live.

Parallel RealityBut they become parallel realities when there is a compulsion to create a separate world to escape, obtain pleasure, patronize or avoid responsibilities in the real world.

While utopias function as action drivers, fallacious utopias function as empty “action promises”. Fundamentalism, considered as an objective characteristic an individual needs to survive, requires “living” in a parallel world to avoid self-perception.

To build this parallel world individuals use their projection capacity to deposit on the environment what they need to perceive in order to feel comfortable. If you use the quality assurance model of the Unicist Standard, you will be able to identify when a situation becomes unreal.

Understanding evolution: The limits of diagnoses

Many diagnoses fail because their application goes beyond the boundaries of their validity.

The research on decision making and diagnosing, developed at The Unicist Research Institute, made the discovery of the logical limits of diagnoses possible.

Diagnoses are human deeds; they reflect the mind models used by those who make the diagnoses. Some of the issues that limit the validity of diagnoses are: common sense, reality awareness, not grounded opinions and the fallacious myths of a culture.

“I don’t know” is the most difficult, less frequently used, but most necessary phrase to be pronounced when making diagnoses.

It is the starting point for accessing the knowledge needed to diagnose.

This changes the paradigms of the validity of knowledge.

The need to deal with the unicist ontogenetic intelligence of nature (UOIN) to influence adaptive systems

Unicist Ontogenetic Intelligence of NatureWhen dealing with adaptive / complex systems that have by definition open boundaries, individuals committed to find solutions need to understand the nature of the problem. And in order to understand the nature of a problem its ontology has to be understood.

The research on the UOIN was developed by Peter Belohlavek and started at the beginning of the 80’s. It was a step by step discovery based on the apprehension of the nature of social phenomena entering afterwards in the institutional and individual evolution. Its integration with biology and physics was the final stage that was achieved.

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. You can download the e-book at:

English: http://www.unicist.org/deb_uoin.php
Portuguese: http://www.unicist.org/br/deb_uoin.php
Spanish: http://www.unicist.org/es/deb_uoin.php

The Ontology of Ontology

Living beings naturally transfer their 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.
Extrinsic 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. This is the origin of the ontology that has been used for many years in philosophy and now also in the field of systemic sciences, complexity science and to deal with adaptive systems. This is what unicist ontology is about.

Peter Belohlavek found that systemic methodologies did not apply to the research of complex systems where there is a conjunction of objects and/or subsystems. Influencing the future meant understanding the nature of a reality in its essence and not from an analytic-rationalistic approach.

To “manage” the nature of businesses the understanding of the ontogenetic intelligence of nature is necessary. You are welcome to deal with the nature of reality in order to be able to develop diagnoses, scenarios, forecasts and strategies.  In the field of adaptive systems “playing by ear” produces paradoxical results.  The intuition has to be confirmed. This is just one case where the saying “hard training, easy combat” is confirmed.

Transistors emulate the ontogenetic intelligence of nature

transistorThe notorious functionality of transistors is based on their emulation of the functionality of nature. The discovery of  semiconductors was needed to make this “invention” possible.

See the history of the transistor at: http://nobelprize.org/educational_games/physics/transistor/history/

This implies that the knowledge of the fundamentals of transistors, which is beyond their mechanics, is what makes them expand the boundaries of their functionality and their “mutations”.

If you want to access the basics of the unicist ontogenetic intelligence of nature you can access it free at: http://www.unicist.org/deb_uoin.php

Unicist Business Objects are also based on the ontogenetic intelligence of nature. Thus transistors and unicist business objects are homologous.

One of the functionalities of unicist business objects is to work as “transistors” of business processes.

This is not easy to apprehend; it requires a double dialectical thinking approach.
