Unicist Strategy


Apprehending evolution implies dealing with Ambiguity

Ambiguity is a human perception.  It exists only in the mind of the perceiver. Following the original etymological meaning of the word it is a perception that has two meanings for the individual. The question is “why”, “when” and “how” to deal with ambiguous perceptions.

Ambiguity appears every time individuals want to grasp the fundamentals of something.

The fundamentals of an adaptive system are defined by the ontology of what is being apprehended and this implies finding the concepts of it.

Naturally this requires having a sound knowledge and experience with what is trying to be apprehended. Having this knowledge, reality is perceived ambiguous, because the nature of something has a double dialectical nature that produces its evolution in the external reality or in the mind of the receiver.

If you never made the effort to deal with the fundamentals of reality you cannot apprehend what is being said now. If it does not appear ambiguous to you, it is uncertain, because you cannot recognize what we are saying.

If this is the case you will have to go through these writings, try to apply them to a real case you need to apprehend and come back to the writings. After this exercise you will begin to find a meaning and ambiguity will appear.

Without knowledge of the field there is no ambiguous perception just an uncertain external stimulus that cannot be grasped nor interpreted.

What are Ontogenetic Maps?

The integration of the ontogenetic intelligence of nature, the anthropological invariables and human ontointelligence made the development of the ontogenetic maps possible.

These ontogenetic maps are timeless meaning that they are valid as long as the function they represent exists.

For example, the ontogenetic map of a lifeboat exists and remains unchanged as long as its function exists. Technologies change, cultural contexts are different but the ontogenetic map of the lifeboat remains the same.

Ontogenetic maps are cross-cultural because the integration of the ontogenetic intelligence of nature with the anthropological (cultural) invariables defines the nature of a function in synthetic language.

On the one hand, this makes the unicist ontological structures self-evident in any culture and, on the other hand, it makes the ontological algorithms, that define the ontogenetic maps, be perceived as logical because they follow the natural way something needs to be developed.

How does human double dialectical behavior work?

The Unicist Dialectics allows dealing with human adaptive systems managing the integration of their double dialectical behavior.

With this double dialectical approach (purpose – active function, purpose – energy conservation function) one can understand the structure of an adaptive system and its evolution.

Unicist Dialectics is based on the emulation of adaptive systems, emulating the ontogenetic intelligence of nature (purpose, active principle, energy conservation principle).

Its application to human adaptive systems made the emulation of individual, institutional and social evolution possible.

To approach a reality integrated by three elements with a dualistic mind it is necessary to consider it as a dualistic integration of binary elements. To perceive dialectics it is necessary to have a high abstraction capacity.

Those who do not have the abstraction capacity consider the dialectical behavior based on observable facts of reality. They cannot differentiate essential correlations from cause-effect relations.

Individuals who have the necessary functional intelligence and the will to add value to an environment, and are able to see the double dialectics, develop two different actions to ensure results: on the one hand, they impulse action and on the other hand, they develop actions to inhibit entropy.

Individuals who approach reality using unicist thinking define strategies based on taxonomies and planed actions to influence the environment.

The lack of hope triggers social cathartic conflicts

The conflicts of the UK, Syria, Egypt and Spain are based on the lack of hope installed in their cultures or subcultures. Social explosions are based on explosive/implosive situations that include necessarily the lack of hope.

If the recent history of South America is revised, it will be seen that the lack of hope provided the explosive/implosive situation for guerrilla.

What is hope in the individual’s context?

Hope is a personal feeling that can be externally stimulated or inhibited. Hope implies having a vision of the future that makes it worth living.

What installs hope in the mind of individuals is their capacity to have an active role in the environment to make the future happen. It implies that individuals are driven by expectancies and are trustful and credible in the environment they live in.

Individuals’ transcendence is the energy conservation function of hope. It complements the vision of the future providing a place to be achieved.

Transcendence has supernatural and natural aspects. The place people seek for depends on which aspects prevail. The immanent (natural) aspects of transcendence are driven by the opportunities individuals perceive and the social harmony of the environment they live in.

The Social Context

Abundance, poverty and scarcity define the basic context for individuals’ behavior. Abundance is the perception that the materialistic needs are covered and that all the necessary goods are available for the individual.

Poverty is the perception that one cannot influence the environment to change the situation of materialistic coverage. It is the consequence and cause of individual and social marginality.

Scarcity is the perception that the materialistic solution depends on what one is doing.

These attitudes drive personal behavior but they are also installed in the myths of cultures and subcultures.

Individuals with an attitude of poverty necessarily lose their hope in a situation of change where they feel excluded.  Mass communication produces this sense of exclusion which could be compensated by an educational system that fosters adaptive behavior instead of operational submission.

All those who cannot adapt, feel excluded by the “system” and become necessarily outraged, blaming the formal authorities for their exclusion.

This feeling of exclusion generates a context of fundamentalist responses because people gather to get rid of their weaknesses. This individual feeling of exclusion is transformed into a social catharsis when people are led by outraged leaders.

Cell phones, now accessible for the mass are the natural media to share weaknesses. If someone has doubts, please take a look at the messages that are sent by the general public.

Fostering hope

Fostering hope requires conjunctural palliatives on the one hand and structural solutions on the other.

Conjunctural palliatives imply generating conditions for the development of economic counter-cycles that decompress the situation of the outraged. The development of structural solutions implies that there has to be a structural context that fosters equality of opportunities.

But it has to be considered that there is a natural inhibitor for avoiding structural solutions.

All the governmental actions that stimulate fallacious myth to cover weaknesses of a culture have rating in the population.

This fosters the need of installing fallacious myths to avoid the perception of weakness because public favorable opinion is a necessary condition for governmental actions.

That is why structural solutions do not produce immediate results and can only be introduced behind conjunctural successful decisions.

The equality of opportunities is inhibited by:

1)  Prejudices.
2)  The existence of a context of abundance and/or poverty.
3)  Conservative domination of the environment without alternation with liberal governments.
4)  The interests of segments who profit from marginality.

An explosive/implosive context is installed when inhibitors prevail.

Conclusions

Considering the growth of the population, the solution cannot be found in the past. It is expected that the population in the world by 2050 will be nearby 9 billion inhabitants. Smaller places require technological changes in order to make solutions possible.

This implies and educational system that opens places for the coming generations. You will not find massive catharsis of outraged in the countries that are leading the PISA statistics.

It has to be considered that in extreme stagnated contexts,  cathartic conflicts can evolve towards civil wars. Therefore, conflicts need to be evaluated and diagnosed carefully.

Researching Adaptive Systems is an Adaptive Process

The research and design of complex adaptive systems requires adapting to the different application fields.

Therefore the semantics of the ontological structure has been defined using different wording for the homologous ontogenetic structure.

Logical approaches have been developed to solve specific problems. Researching and designing human complex adaptive systems implies the use of a new logic.

Unicist logic has been developed to deal with complexity and integrates preexisting logical approaches in their oneness.

The learning of the reading of unicist ontologies and unicist logic is strongly recommended when entering the field of researching human complex adaptive systems.

The understanding of the ontology of “biological entities” helps to follow the laws of nature when dealing with genetic engineering processes and use it to apprehend the nature of beings with “artificial life” such as institutions.

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.

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.

Managing Unicist Ontologies for Unicist Objects Building

Unicist objects are adapted systems designed to influence the evolution of other (wider) adapted systems. Individual, business and social growth are paradigmatic adapted systems where unicist objects can be installed to drive or accelerate growth.

The knowledge of the ontology of a specific reality is necessary in order to build an object to influence it. This abstract is a description of the methods individuals need to use to apprehend the ontology of an adaptive system.

Introduction

Every individual has his natural type of logical thinking and strategic thinking. This defines the type of problems s/he can deal with.

https://www.unicist-school.org/theoryofevolution/wp-content/uploads/2011/05/unicist_ethics_en.pdf

Everyone’s responsibility is making use of what one has to make things happen.

The maturity of knowledge depends on the hunger, responsibility and will of individuals and the prices they accept to pay to achieve it.

Apprehension of ontological structures

The objective of this work is to provide a guide to apprehend the ontological structure of a specific reality when the generic ontological algorithm already as been discovered and developed.

To discover ontologies and develop ontological algorithms you can find the Unicist Standard at:

The Unicist Standard for the Ontological R&D of Adaptive Systems:
http://www.unicist.org/deb_ustdrd.php
The Unicist Standard to Research the Ontology of Human Adaptive Systems:
http://www.unicist.org/deb_ustdas.php

“Concept” is the plain language name given for an ontological structure and “fundamentals” is the name given to the elements that integrate it.

Sound knowledge and maturity are needed to approach an ontological structure.

Maturity implies that individuals are focused on adding value and profiting from its counterpart in a specific reality.

Therefore we will be focusing on how individuals, having different types of logical thinking, can apprehend an ontological structure.

It has to be said that the first step to approach a new field is to recognize it. To do so individuals compare what they “see” with a preconcept they have. That is what we have named “analogical thinking” meaning that the individual projects on the external reality a preconcept s/he has. This projection stagnates if individuals need to confirm their beliefs or needs.

If individuals have the inner freedom to introject a different external reality the thinking process begins; if not, individuals approach reality with their stagnated survivor ethics.

Apprehending unicist ontologies

We will be following the steps of approaching concepts starting with the operational approach.

Apprehending ontologies with operational thinking

It is a way to adapt to reality based on its operational aspects.

The use of objective scientific tools such as statistics, neural networks, genetic algorithms, etc allows finding the hypothesis of the concept of a specific reality. The scientifically validated results provide a hypothesis of the concept that underlies the observable facts and actions.

As it is based on the research of effects it is needed to be confirmed to avoid fallacious conclusions.

This knowledge can be used after statistically valid pilot tests have been done. It is functional to all those fields of action where secure knowledge is unnecessary.

Apprehending ontologies with analytical thinking

To approach reality with analytical thinking requires knowing the idea of the concept.

Analytical thinking implies analyzing the hypothetical idea of a concept in order to find its structure and make the logical validation of it. Unicist ontological analysis has to be used to make this validation.

Analytical thinking provides the static valid ontological structure to be used. When it is not based on operational knowledge it provides the hypothetical ontological structure of a reality following the rules of the ontogenetic intelligence of nature.

This knowledge allows adjusting the operational knowledge and providing an approach to the ontological algorithms to deal with a specific reality. It allows confirming the hypothesis of the concept defined at the operational level.

Apprehending ontologies with systemic (scientific) thinking

To approach reality with systemic thinking the dynamic of a concept has to be known. This knowledge can have been empirically built or can be based on following the steps that started at a previous thinking level.

The next step for those who have a natural systemic approach to reality is the operational confirmation of its dynamic.

Systemic thinking requires designing tests that allow confirming the hypothetical dynamic that has been defined. It provides a valid knowledge for all those fields that can be managed based on cause-effect relationships. This implies that it can be used in the fields where a real influence on reality can be exerted.

Apprehending ontologies with conceptual thinking

Conceptual thinking allows apprehending a specific reality as a unified field. It is based on confirming the idea of a concept based having experienced it in an adapted way.

Conceptual thinking allows using experiences in homologous fields as valid experiences to develop solutions with added value.

The use of conceptual thinking is the final step of the apprehension of an ontological structure.

Natural conceptual thinkers have to confirm the idea of a concept based on unicist reflection and the use of destructive and non-destructive pilot tests.

Conceptual thinking provides the solutions to deal with complex adaptive systems in which the boundaries are open. It provides secure knowledge of the possibilities of actions and the probabilities of success.

Conclusion

Unicist thinking is the integration of these four types of logical thinking processes. It allows emulating the ontogenetic intelligence of nature to apprehend the ontology of evolution in order to build strategies that allow using unicist objects to drive and accelerate evolution in specific fields.

To build objects, whatever their type, requires being able to apprehend the ontology of the specific reality where they need to be installed.

This requires having achieved a mature knowledge and relationship with that reality in order to be able to focus on adding value and benefiting from the counterpart.

The Unicist Ontology of Biological Entities

The unicist ontology of a “biological entity” defines its structure and functionality in an environment.

The genotype defines the genetic structure of the entity that rules its evolution and generates the phenotype of the being.  The objective of the genotype is to ensure the permanence of species, it reproduction and production.

The phenotype defines the morphologic, behavioral and materialistic characteristics of the entity. It defines the functional characteristics, the functional power of the entity and the functional assurance.

Functionality defines the effectiveness of the phenotype measured as the consequence of the adaptation of the biological entity to the environment. Functionality is measured in the capacity of adapting and growing, on the one hand, and surviving, on the other hand.

The understanding of the ontology of “biological entities” helps to follow the laws of nature when dealing with genetic engineering processes and use it to apprehend the nature of beings with “artificial life” such as institutions.
