Discovery of the Functional Purpose of Human Thinking

A new research on the functionality of human intelligence, was finished at the beginning of January 2016, after more than 30 years since the beginning of the research, which started in 1986. The conclusion of the research was based on the applications that were made in Austria, Germany, India and USA, which had a 100% of accuracy.

The Unicist Unified Field

Click to access the description of this approach. You will notice the upgrade if you already have the preceding presentation.

The objective of this research, that was triggered by the discovery of the “logical type of thinking”, was to find the final purpose of the thinking processes of individuals. The research was developed at The Unicist Research Institute and was led by Peter Belohlavek.

The functionality of thinking processes had been discovered and could be modeled; but this knowledge was still a static approach to the thinking processes and needed to become associated with the functionality of the thinking process in real life.

The previous research demonstrated that the depth of thinking was associated to the capacity of individuals to deal with ambiguity and complexity.

But the new research went further. The new finding demonstrates the functionality of the type of thought to deal with real actions and the level of responsibilities for results an individual can assume when acting in the environment.

The conclusions can be synthesized as follows:

The purpose of the thinking process of humans is to generate results, whatever their kind. The depth of the thinking process defines the capacity for assuming responsibilities.

  • Operational Thinking allows assuming the responsibility for tasks
  • Analytical Thinking allows assuming the responsibility for rational decisions
  • Systemic (Scientific) Thinking allows assuming the responsibility for managing variables
  • Conceptual Thinking allows assuming the responsibility for generating results
  • Unicist Thinking allows generating results in the short and long run

There also exists an analogical thinking process which uses analogical benchmarks to avoid assuming responsibilities. This level of thinking is basically “preconscious”.

If you are not aware of the functionality of the preceding researches, we recommend accessing the following link: www.unicist.org/conceptual-thinking/the-roots-of-intelligence

Applications

On the one hand, due to this research widened the possibilities to build groups, develop team work, manage social participation and build relationships.

On the other hand, the results of this research provided basic information for personal talent development in order to allow people to take advantage of their gifts avoiding misleading utopias.

This knowledge increased the accuracy of the knowledge to manage complex adaptive environments as a unified field (click on the image).

We hope you can profit from the conclusions.

The Unicist Paradigm Shift in Sciences

Integrating Observable Facts with the Nature of Things

The unicist paradigm shift in sciences drove from an empirical approach to a pragmatic, structuralist and functionalist approach to deal with complex environments, integrating observable facts with the “nature of things”. It implies the integration of epistemological justifications with foundations. It made complex adaptive systems reasonable, understandable and predictable. It allowed managing the world of possibilities going beyond probabilities. The objective of this development was to manage the unified field of complex adaptive systems in order to simplify their management.

The Unicist Paradigm Shift

Access the Unicist Paradigm Shift in Sciences

This is an upgrade in sciences that integrated complexity sciences with systemic sciences and allowed emulating the organization of nature by developing a logic based and object driven approach to manage the adaptive aspects of complex environments.

The Unicist Theory

The Unicist Theory, developed by Peter Belohlavek, is a paradigm shift of the scientific approach to complex adaptive systems. It substituted empiricism by a pragmatic, structuralist and functionalist approach and replaced knowledge falsification processes with destructive testing processes.

This theory provides an approach to complexity based on the use of the unicist logic that emulates the intelligence that underlies nature. It integrated complexity sciences with systemic sciences in a unified field.

The paradigm shift applied to Businesses

The Unicist Theory allowed understanding and influencing the evolution of living beings and artificial complex adaptive systems. This influence is exerted by using unicist logic based and object driven technologies, which is now a worldwide trend.

The paradigm shift applied to Sustainable Development

The Unicist Future Research Lab developed the archetypes of 70 countries to provide a basic framework for sustainable development and economic and business solutions.

The paradigm shift applied to Human Intelligence

The researches on human intelligence were focused on understanding the functionality of human intelligence to deal with complex adaptive environments.

Unicist Epistemology sustains the paradigm shift

The paradigm shift of the Unicist TheoryThe Unicist Epistemology is based on the development of logical foundations and empirical justifications to sustain human knowledge.

This epistemology is a pragmatic, structuralist and functionalist approach to knowledge.

The pragmatism deals with the goal of this epistemology, which is to provide reliable knowledge in order to generate added value. At the same time, structuralism is required to integrate the knowledge of an entity and its restricted and wide contexts. Finally, functionalism makes results be a core aspect of the validity of knowledge.

The Trend of Organizing by Roles and Objects that Emulates Nature

The Unicist Research Institute is leading the trend of organizing by roles and objects emulating the organization of nature. This allows managing the adaptive aspects of economics and businesses simplifying processes and minimizing the entropy of the systems where roles and objects have been installed.

Emulation of Nature in BusinessesSome of the companies that use business objects are:  Airbus, Amazon, Apple, BBC, Boeing, Dassault Systemes, Dupont, Ericsson, Facebook, General Electric, Google, Hilton, Honda, Hyundai, LinkedIn, Lufthansa, Mapfre, Mayo Clinic, Michelin, Novartis, Open Text, P&G, Pfizer, Siemens, Tata Motors, Toyota, Unilever, Walmart, Walt Disney World and Youtube.

The evolution of communication and IT technologies provided the necessary environment to foster the trend of emulating the organization of nature by installing business objects and organizing by roles. In the business world, the organization by objects has always been the action of wise people.

The unicist object driven approach catalyzed the trend towards organizing by objects.  The Unicist Theory, based on the discovery of the intelligence that underlies nature, made the organization of nature reasonable, understandable and predictable. It simplified the building of objects making their development accessible to professionals. http://www.unicist.org/repo

Examples

The emulation of nature in human activities is as old as humanity. Nature was emulated every time a human activity was organized by wise leaders. Nature, as all complex systems, is integrated by objects, which are interdependent adaptive systems that drive the evolution of the entity they are part of. The organs of the human body are an evident example of the organization by objects in nature.

If you look at the R&D function of Siemens, you will discover the functionality of a gravitational object. http://www.siemens.com/innovation/en/about-research-and-development.htm

If you analyze the organization of Walt Disney World, you will find the emulation of the American Archetype. https://disneyworld.disney.go.com/

XI International Unicist Conference 2015

The XI International Unicist Conference will honor objects in order to make them noticeable to the community and transform the emulation of nature into a benchmark to develop objects that simplify the organization of businesses and increase the value generation.
