Unicist Ontology of 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.

Discovery that complementation and supplementation rule nature

The research on adaptive systems drove to the conclusion that nature has only two types of relationships: complementation and supplementation. The use of a unicist double dialectical thinking approach is necessary to apprehend them.

The elements that are part of an entity in nature are integrated by supplementary and complementary relationships. There exist no other types of relationships in nature.

These relationships can be perfect or imperfect. When they are perfect the entity evolves in a stable way, when they are imperfect they generate a high level of entropy.

The purpose, the conservation function and the active function of a concept are integrated by logical rules which sustain their unity.

While the purpose and the active function are sustained by the supplementation law, the purpose and the conservation function are integrated by the complementation law.

The unicist explanation of Darwin: How evolution takes place

The question answered by The Unicist Theory of Evolution is how evolution is produced and how it can be anticipated to influence as far as it is possible.

Darwin's finchesWhen talking about evolution, we always refer to the evolution of a reality that is regulated by the multiple concepts organizing its “unified field”.

Charles Darwin demonstrated the adaptation process of species that, having the same structural constitution, develop adaptive changes to live in a certain environment. It is necessary to comprehend that the evolution of species has a materialistic origin.

Habit is hereditary with plants, as in the period of flowering, in the amount of rain requisite for seeds to germinate, in the time of sleep, &c., and this leads me to say a few words on acclimatisation. As it is extremely common for species of the same genus to inhabit very hot and very cold countries, and as I believe that all the species of the same genus have descended from a single parent, if this view be correct, acclimatisation must be readily effected during long-continued descent. It is notorious that each species is adapted to the climate of its own home: species from an arctic or even from a temperate region cannot endure a tropical climate, or conversely. (Charles Darwin: The Origin of Species)

Evolution always occurs by the “verbal function effect”. Adaptation to the environment is lost when the action where the adverbial function is materialized stops being functional to the existence of a concept in its current state.

In this case, there are two possibilities: either the adverbial function compensates the dysfunctionality or it does not.

In order to adjust this, the adverbial function starts up the verbal function it has as sub-concept of the original concept. This compensation may be reached or not.

If reached, there is an adjustment effect which is functional to the balance at a given time and let repairing or self-repairing mechanisms adjust the dysfunctionality.

When there are no chances of repair, the balance of the credibility area must have changed in the case of an extrinsic concept, or there must have been a change in the functionality area when dealing with an intrinsic concept.

It may also happen that the adverbial function (homeostasis) cannot compensate the unbalance situation produced by the dysfunctionality of the verbal function. Should that be the case, there is a modification of the substantive function.

In this case, a mutation must have taken place. When purposes change mutation occur.

Mutations may be qualitative or structural. By qualitative mutations we mean those that modify the quality of the same structural purpose.

Structural mutations are those where the purpose changes completely. Structural mutations frequently occur when, in chaotic situations, there appears an external gravitating force which intends to “absorb” a unified field.

It is very difficult to know exactly when the mutation will take place and what it will result in.

What it is possible indeed is to build alternative scenarios which allow a better adaptation to the environment.

The Unicist Ontology is analogous to the structure of atoms

All the essential structures of nature are homologous. Therefore the unicist ontology is, obviously, essentially analogous to the structure of atoms.

The ontogenetic intelligence of nature defines that every living being has a purpose, an active principle and an energy conservation principle.

The purpose can also be defined as the substantive function, the active principle as the verbal function and the energy conservation principle as the adverbial function.

In physics atoms are defined by having a central nucleus, composed by positively charged protons and neutral neutrons, surrounded by negatively charged electrons.

The positively charged protons are homologous to the substantive function, the neutral neutrons are homologous to the adverbial function and the negatively charged electrons are homologous to the verbal function. An atom, having an equal number of protons and electrons, is electrically neutral.

Living beings are continuously evolving and involving which implies that there is always disequilibrium between their purposes and their active functions which is homologous to the disequilibrium of protons and electrons.

This disequilibrium is what defines the energy and the influence of an ontogenetic structure in the environment.

The active function and the purpose are antithetic and supplementary implying that both are charged with energy.

The energy conservation function and the purpose have a complementary relationship which is evident in atoms where the neutrons allow the integration of the protons.

The mass of an element is basically given by the nucleus of an ontological structure meaning that the mass is given by the purpose and its complementary energy conservation function. But the evolution of a living being is given by the power of the active function in the environment.

About cultural stagnation and over-adaptation

Over-adaptation is the less energy consuming attitude of an individual, institution or culture in the environment. It is based on the existence of a comfort zone that is considered safe, on existing abundance or poverty. Comfort stagnates, scarcity fosters evolution.

Over-adapting implies following the explicit and implicit rules of an environment. The submission to the culture and its leaders is the final purpose to be achieved.

As this purpose is basically not ego-fulfilling it needs to be integrated with a dominant and oppositional behavior.

In Over-adaptive cultures dominated-dominant behaviors towards the authoritative or authoritarian roles and the dominant-dominated behaviors towards those who are dependant are considered adequate.

This generates an implicit conflict that becomes extremely dysfunctional and drives the situation towards chaos unless there is an equilibrant that mitigates it.

This homeostatic function, working as the energy conservation function, is given by an oppositional behavior that is developed towards those who are “different”.

Stagnated (over-adaptive) cultures cannot bear people who are different because they implicitly question the roles of over-adaptation.

The book “1984” by George Orwell is an artistic description of over-adaptive, stagnated, cultures.

Unicist ontology to apprehend the nature of an object

The unicist ontology defines the nature of entities. It defines their purpose, their active function and their energy conservation function. These three elements are integrated in their oneness following the complementation and supplementation laws.

It is a structural functionalist approach that belongs to the field of complexity science and emulates the ontogenetic intelligence of nature.

An example is the unicist ontology of a person. The apprehension of this entity is based on:

1)      The active function, the appearances, can be observed.

2)      The energy conservation function, the doings, can be perceived.

3)      The purpose, the being, needs to be intuited.

4)      Their integration in their oneness requires using double dialectical thinking within a reflection process.

Some of these concepts are counterintuitive for adults. For example that appearance is an active function and that doings cannot be observed but only perceived. That is why humbleness and experiencing reality is basic to avoid conflicts with counterintuitive concepts.

To apprehend the nature of an entity it is necessary to have a preexisting sound knowledge, having experienced it to start a reflection process. The final step is the development of the necessary destructive and non-destructive tests until the definition has demonstrated that it suffices to forecast the evolution of the entity.

Fundamentalists live in parallel realities

Fundamentalism is expanding in the world because the successive crises generate the ethical degradation of cultures in order to survive. When survivors feel stagnated, they naturally drive towards fundamentalist behavior.

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

But 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.

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.”

Unicist Anthropology: a breakthrough by Peter Belohlavek

Unicist Anthropology is the complexity scientific approach to human behavior and the structural analysis of individuals’ deeds in order to forecast their evolution.

This R&D e-book on Unicist Anthropology by Peter Belohlavek has been published and is included in the Unicist Standard – Country Future Research Search Engine.

It surveys not only the evolution of Man as a species and as an individual but also the evolution of his institutions. It studies Man, his actions and his transcendence as “a unified field”.

Its main tool is the application of the Unicist Theory of Evolution, the Unicist Logic, and the laws of evolution of individuals, institutions and culture.

It studies the most intrinsic and extrinsic concepts that operate as “drivers” of cultures and individuals to use them as a basis for the causal-conceptual description of a reality in order to forecast it.

Unicist Anthropology conceptually structures taboos, myths and utopias that influence man’s actions.

Its main objective is to forecast the behavior of individuals, institutions and cultures so as to basically influence upon its evolution.

This book honors Claude Lévi-Strauss, Carl Jung, Viktor Frankl and Joseph Campbell for their contribution to human evolution.

Understanding the evolution of Germany

The fundamentals of the German Archetype drive the evolution of the culture. Understanding this case you will be able to see the Unicist Theory of Evolution applied to a real case.

Consider that the archetypes of countries drive the automatisms of cultures. This implies they are very difficult to be apprehended. This effort is only worthwhile if you are really interested in the German culture.

Unicist Future Research: The Archetype of Germany

We invite you to apprehend the nature of German’s archetype. But consider that it is necessary to avoid comparisons with other cultures.

“The reach of one’s globalization is defined
by the limit of the pronoun WE.”

If you are interested in understanding the German archetype we recommend watching the following videos.
