Physicians and experts need to manage two languages

Like in Medicine, experts and consultants need to manage two languages, one to deal with the diagnoses and one to communicate with “patients”.

Medical practice deals with an extremely complex adaptive system: the human being. Therefore physicians need to mange two languages: one to deal with science and one to communicate with patients.

Medicine, as all the activities that deal with adaptive systems, requires the use of two languages: one to mange the “system” and one to deal with the “patient”.

The same happens with the unicist approach, it requires the use of conceptual language to deal with the business objects and plain language to communicate with clients.

A critical mass can only be achieved if these two languages are managed:

The Power of Technology

(Business objects – Conceptual language)


The Power of Simplicity

(Unicist approach – plain language)


The Power of Action

(Facts – Factual language)

Critical Mass = Results

Managing unicist ontology based and object driven technologies requires the use of conceptual language. It generates The Power of Technology.

The Power of Simplicity can only be achieved using plain language. Finally, The Power of Action uses factual language.

Therefore, when credibility is given, users do not need to mange the unicist technologies, just their applications. That is the way results are achieved.

NOTE: The Unicist Research Institute was the pioneer in using the unicist logical approach in complexity science research and became a private global decentralized leading research organization in the field of human adaptive systems. It has an academic arm and a business arm.
