External Freedom

The final condition that allows an individual to manage reality in a conscious way, which allows him/her to be in power without needing to exert this power, is external freedom. External freedom is what drives the external actions an individual performs in order to make things happen. It is sustained by inner freedom and the timing of actions which build its solidity.

The Objective of Expanding Consciousness

Consciousness is necessary to apprehend the nature of reality, be able to discriminate the outside of an individual from her/his inside and being able to deal with the future.

This allows assuming the responsibility of developing strategies, and making adapted decisions while being conscious of what one is doing. Strategies are based on the external freedom of individuals. Inner freedom is the energy conservation for the organization of processes.

External Freedom Drives Strategy Building

Individuals have two types of freedoms that they need to manage: inner freedom, in order to expand who they are, and external freedom, to expand what they do.

Unicist Ontology of External FreedomExternal freedom needs inner freedom to exist. Nobody can have the power of external freedom without having achieved inner freedom first. The pathway towards external freedom requires having achieved inner freedom and being able to manage time.

External freedom implies assuming the responsibility to do while being conscious of the actions that need to be done to adapt to the environment. This is the definition of free will which is a basic condition for democratic environments.

Free will can only be exerted by individuals who are adapted to the environment, have assumed responsibility in the environment, and are conscious of their actions. Free will cannot mean doing what one wants to do. It necessarily implies the integration of the needs of all the participants in an environment. Absolute free will is an anarchic/individualistic behavior.

The Ontogenetic Map of External Freedom

Unicist Ontology of External FreedomThe ontogenetic map of External Freedom describes the steps that have to be followed in order to assume responsibility to do.

  1. Define what has to be done.
    A) Define the maximal strategy to be achieved.
    B) Define the minimum strategy to be developed.
    C) Define the value that needs to be added in the adapting process.
  2. Define what is included and what is not included in the action process.
  3. Assimilate/introject the external reality to emulate in your mind the external reality.
  4. Define the level of ethical intelligence, type of thought, and strategic intelligence that are needed.
  5. Confirm what can be included in the value-adding process.
  6. Define the actions that are needed.
  7. Describe the justifications of the actions as a whole and each of its parts.
  8. Describe the foundations of the adapted actions that need to be developed.
  9. Define the action plan.
  10. Develop the destructive and non-destructive tests of this process.

Maximal and Minimum Strategies of External Freedom

Achieving external freedom requires, besides having the inner freedom to develop it, having a maximal strategy that deals with the process of consciousness and a minimum strategy that deals with adaptive actions.

Maximal strategies require being conscious of what is happening. This is a universal aspect of maximal strategies. All maximal strategies in the real world require consciousness of the functionality of the actions that are being planned or developed.

In this case, the building of the maximal strategies of external freedom requires being able to discriminate the actions that are being developed, emulate the solution in the mind, and have the necessary ontointelligence to deal with them.

Unicist Ontology of External FreedomThe minimum strategies of external freedom are based on developing the necessary, justified and grounded actions to adapt to the environment.

There are different segments when dealing with external freedom:

  1. Benchmark driven
  2. Rationality driven
  3. Ethics driven
  4. Reflection driven

Benchmark driven

Benchmark-driven segments deal with external freedom based on analogical benchmarks. This allows choosing among the successful cases, the analogous ones for benchmark, to achieve the best results in a minimum of time. Benchmark-driven segments are centered in the justification of their actions.

Rationality driven

Rationality-driven segments deal with external freedom based on technical or scientific knowledge. They are knowledge-driven. This allows defining the necessary actions to be developed using cause-effect analysis based on reliable sources. Rationality-driven segments are strongly driven by the need to build the necessary foundations for any action.

Ethics driven

This segment is driven by ethical intelligence to discriminate those aspects that can be managed making the necessary effort to access reality consciously. This process implies approaching the nature of reality and transforming it into models that allow exerting external freedom to make things happen.

Reflection driven

The reflection-driven segment is basically driven by emulating the external reality in mind to become aware of its functionality and how it can be transformed into action. Reflection-driven segments are focused on being able to apprehend the unified field in mind before acting in the environment.
