Discovery of the Unicist Technology for Trend Building

Trend building is perhaps the most complex process in the business world. It is a paradigmatic example of complexity.

Trend BuildingThe first trend building process developed by our organization occurred in 1981. Since then multiple trends were installed having more or less influential power in the social, political, technological and business fields. The final trend building technology could be confirmed in 2013.

Trend building is a “must” when innovations need to be introduced in a market. Basically, there are two different types of trends:

1)  Natural trends produced in a context

2)  Artificial trends stimulated by human actions

Trends need to have a level of energy to allow using them “as a wave” in order to “surf” on them. Natural waves have a higher level of energy than artificial trends.

There are multiple types of trends:

  1. Produced by new technologies
  2. Produced by the satisfaction of needs
  3. Produced by changes in the gravitational force
  4. Produced by changes in the catalysts
  5. Produced by restrictions of the environment
  6. Produced by the disequilibrium of the functionality of concepts that underlie a given reality
  7. Produced by mutations of conceptual structures
  8. Produced by the influence of changes in homologous fields
  9. Produced by changes in he sub-concepts of a field
  10. Produced by extreme conflicts

Artificial trends are built by installing expectancies based on an authoritative context that provides “gravitational legitimacy” and having the necessary influence to accelerate the process.

The success of a trend building process depends on the capacity of installing the necessary propagation speed that makes this process commercially feasible.

This technology requires using semiotic and semantic objects in order to achieve the necessary propagation speed. Full success will have been achieved when the artificial trend becomes a natural trend.

Unicist Anthropology: functionality of taboos in societies

Introduction

Unicist anthropology is the description of human social behavior and evolution based on the implicit rules of the ontogenetic intelligence of nature that rule human social action.

Unicist anthropology describes the unicist ontology of human social behavior. Social behavior establishes the context of individual behavior. Therefore it limits it, catalyzes and inhibits actions and works as a dominant gravitational force in social behavior.

About Taboos

Social TabooThe purpose of a taboo is to avoid destruction. Those who do not respect the taboos of a culture endanger the cultural survival, growth or identity. Therefore disregarding the taboos produces self-destruction and/or destruction.

Functionally, taboos provide a secure social environment to allow and foster actions and a secure individual environment to avoid uncertainty.

The paradox is that evolving cultures respect the taboos that are usually implicit in their protocols or rituals to prepare actions while involving cultures do not respect them.

Action requires preexisting protocols that are strictly respected in evolving cultures.

Involving cultures, on the other hand, lack protocols or generate protocols that produce fallacious myths. This means that the protocols disregard the taboos and foster non acceptable actions that degrade the culture.

At an essential operational level, the functionality of taboos requires the integration of the structuring of a secure social and individual environment based on extremely strict rules with a punishment system that includes both social and self-inflicted punishment.

Operationally, the four structural segments of taboos can be described as follows.

Surviving taboos

Surviving taboos are the ones that ensure the survival of a culture. The survival of a culture requires that all members share the fallacious myths that are installed.

Fallacious myths are apparently dysfunctional myths based on fallacies and unreachable utopias that cover the weaknesses a culture cannot deal with.

Surviving taboos avoid that cultures discuss the functionality of their extreme weaknesses. An example of surviving taboos is a culture where people usually express half of the truth.

The other half of the truth is not said generating a polemic on truth that fulfills the self-esteem of the participants. The whole truth is unbearable and those who express it are eliminated.

Conservative taboos

Conservative taboos are the explicit and implicit prohibition of dealing with aspects that might change the status quo. Conservative taboos are implicit in cultures that cannot deal with change.

Dependant cultures need to be conservative because they cannot change due to the fact that they depend on being dependant.

When a culture is dependant it has to be rigid and conservative in order to be reliable to the one it depends on.

In aligned cultures the need for conservation is installed and establishes rules that follow after the dependence has been broken. Conservative taboos imply dependence.

Cohabitation taboos

Every culture has its cohabitation taboos. There are cultures where sex, races, politics and religions cannot be discussed in social meetings.

On the other hand, there are cultures where the discussion of politics is part of their social rituals. This implies that every culture establishes the cohabitation taboos that are functional to its archetypes.

The archetype of a culture requires that some aspects, those who cover unbearable facts, cannot be discussed. This has to be strictly respected because it is part of the culture’s success.

Evolution taboos

Evolution implies paying prices in the social field. These prices necessarily affect people. Evolution taboos imply the avoidance of clarifying the prices a culture is paying for its evolution.

The few, the ones who guide the evolution, know what is happening. But the mass of the society needs to avoid facing the prices and establishes implicit taboos on those aspects that cannot be dealt with.

An evolution taboo implies the “denial” of the fact that evolution necessarily implies that somebody is being left behind. Without these taboos societies could not evolve.

Conclusion

Unicist anthropology approaches human behavior based on its essential drivers which are the taboos of a society that “hide” the expansion and contraction of cultures, the myths that provide the security framework and the utopias that provide the drivers for actions and, therefore, for evolution.

Evolution: The power of a Nation is in its Archetype

The Power of a Nation provides a gravitational force for its external relations in the public and private fields that defines the level of synergy of the culture and establishes the standard for social, economic and political behaviors in terms of their capacity to influence the environment.

The Power of NationsWe are entering in one of the most obscure aspects of social behavior that deals with the power that cultures have and transfer to their members.

Essentially, the power of a Nation is synthesized in its archetype which has a level of energy that allows the Nation to follow a common goal with a natural path to achieve it.

The first obscure aspect is to accept that different countries have a different level of energy to influence the environment to transform nature for the benefit of their members.

Defining these differences is implicitly the explanation of the different levels of development of countries and explains also why the solution towards a higher level of power to influence the environment has to come from the inside and not from the outside.

This work is the result of more than 30 years of researching and forecasting the evolution of countries until the fundamentals that define the power of Nations were refined and proven that they have no exceptions.

At an operational level statistics is an adequate tool for most of the social researches. At an essential level, when dealing with the world of possibilities, the conclusions are 0 (zero) or 1 (one). No probabilities are admissible.

The power of a Nation is in its Archetype

The archetype of a Nation defines its power. But archetypes evolve, and this evolution occurs driven by the elite of a country. Elites have two roles in a country. On the one hand, they are the representatives of the archetype of the culture and, on the other hand, they are the ones that foster its evolution.

Discovery of cultural over-adaptation and its consequences

Over-adaptation implies stagnation. The stagnation is a consequence and over-adaptive behaviors are the drivers that generate stagnation.

An over-adaptive behavior is part of any expansive (adaptive) process.

Cultural expansion requires being able to influence the environment and then use the over-adaptive behavior in order to save energy.

It requires being able to influence the environment in a way that generates growth.

When this influential attitude does not exist, whatever the reasons, the over-adaptive process has begun.

This necessarily generates stagnation in the environment. Standing still in an environment that is evolving produces involution measured in terms of the vital space that is being occupied in the context.

The European recovery is based on a cultural consolidation

Understanding cultures is an essential matter for anyone who deals with global activities. The research on the unicist ontology of archetypes has just been finished at The Unicist Research Institute and is being used to diagnose the situation of the European Union where different cultures are being integrated.

Country’s CultureThe purpose of a culture can be found in the archetype of a country. This archetype defines the cohabitation and survival taboos that need to be respected to be accepted as a member of the community. This defines the genotype of a country considering it as an entity with artificial life.

The genotype is put in action by the lifestyle of a culture that defines its phenotype. The lifestyle is defined by the cohabitation and survival myths that need to be followed to be considered as a full member of a society. People who do not follow the myths of a culture are considered outsiders.

The energy conservation function is defined by the scenarios of a country which are defined by the social, economic and political scenarios. When this energy conservation function becomes dysfunctional, the system enters into a more or less chaotic state that can be suppressed or palliated for some time but needs to be solved to avoid a cultural change.

Cultural change is triggered by the demands of the lifestyle of a culture, but it only succeeds if the functionality of the social, economic and political scenarios cannot sustain the preexisting archetypes. This is what is happening in Europe; a new utopia with a functional ethic is necessary to recover the European expansion.

Ideologies are the restricted context for social evolution

Before the unicist approach, ideologies were considered as the core aspect of the political scenario of a culture that sustained the ethics of the governmental and social actions.

The unicist approach to evolution integrated ideologies both at an individual and social level considering that they might be absolute or functional and that their evolution is driven by technologies. A change of technologies is needed to foster the evolution of ideologies.

“Ideologies are necessary to provide a secure framework of ideas to human beings to deal with their adapting processes to the environment and its changes. Ideologies sustain human actions in the individual and social fields.

Thus, we found two different ideologies that regulate, on the one hand, the individual behavior, and, on the other hand, the social behavior.

The nature of a personal ideology can be described as the integration of the individual’s social ideology and the individual ideology to define the role of the person in the society.

The social ideology is the mask that covers the inaccessible archetype of the culture while the individual ideology is the mask that covers the ethical intelligence of an individual.

Ideologies make the development of individuals’ role in the society possible. Ideologies work as short-cuts, in which the individual has no real awareness of his own archetype or of his individual predominant type of ethics. Therefore, when the functionality of ideologies is replaced by absolute ideologies, this frequently drives to self-fulfilling prophesy.”
