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”.

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.

Paradigm Shifts in Sciences change the World View

The unicist paradigm shift in science opened the possibility of emulating the organization of nature in the real world. It is based on the integration of complexity sciences, which deal with complex adaptive systems with systemic sciences that deal with systemic systems where univocal cause-effect relationships prevail.

The Unicist Paradigm ShiftThis implies using a pragmatic, structuralist and functionalist framework to approach complexity using the unicist double dialectical logic that allows apprehending the concepts that underlie facts and integrating it with the traditional empirical approach to manage the operational aspects.

Thomas S. Kuhn explains in his book The Structure of Scientific Revolutions:

Examining the record of past research from the vantage of contemporary historiography, the historian of science may be tempted to exclaim that when paradigms change, the world itself changes with them. Led by a new paradigm, scientists adopt new instruments and look in new places. Even more important, during revolutions scientists see new and different things when looking with familiar instruments in places they have looked before.

The new world view

The paradigm shift in science, based on the Unicist Theory and sustained by the Unicist Epistemology, allows dealing with the nature of things which allows simplifying the building and management of complex adaptive systems and dealing with complex adaptive environments. It implies a conceptual approach to reality. This drove to the development of Conceptual Anthropology, Conceptual Economy, Conceptual Psychology and Conceptual Management.

We suggest accessing a synthetic description of this paradigm shift at: http://www.unicist.net/clipboard/

This simplifies processes by defining what is possible to be achieved. This simplification requires being able to apprehend the concepts that underlie facts. Unfortunately this is not the easiest way to face reality. Fallacies were, are and will be the easy way to perceive what needs to be perceived and blame reality when the results are not the expected ones.

The emulation of nature in business implies organizing by objects that has been adopted by multiple organizations in the world: 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, SAP, Siemens, Tata Motors, Toyota, Unilever, Walmart, Walt Disney World and Youtube.

The Unicist Object driven Technologies allow installing this approach in all the organizations that have achieved the necessary level or organizational maturity.

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.

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.

Unicist IT Architecture: an In-company Clinic

This clinic provides the guiding idea to design and build IT Architectures. The maturity achieved by the IT technologies allowed making the next step, the integration of hardware and software with peopleware.

The unicist ontology based and object driven IT architecture is based on using the knowledge of the nature of a process, its components and its context to develop a system.

This allows generating the results defined by the business model. This technology uses a structural functionalist architectural approach to define the processes and the business objects that are needed and reliable to achieve the predefined results.

The Mutation of IT Architecture

The evolution of Information Technology generated its own mutation towards an upper level technology that manages hardware and software but allows the integration of peopleware to provide optimal solutions for work processes.

Peopleware is defined by the structure of objects that individuals have in their minds which define the models they use when dealing with hardware and software at work.

The Mutation

This mutation requires changing the way IT Architecture has to be designed. Peopleware is what allows integrating hardware and software providing the true driver of a work/business model. When peopleware has been defined, an adequate design of an aesthetic software architecture with a solid hardware architecture will make business processes operational.

Peopleware is perhaps the most significant development to provide business operational solutions. It allows integrating administrative systems and adaptive systems to upgrade work processes when managing businesses as unified fields.

Peopleware is part of an IT architecture applied to work process design. Therefore, it requires having or achieving a sound knowledge of the business/work processes that are being modeled.

We strongly recommend taking advantage of the mutation generated by the evolution of the information technologies.

Presentation of the Adaptive Project Management Technology

This Seminar provides the guiding idea to design and manage adaptive projects. The Unicist Project Management (UPM) was designed to manage adaptive projects in which the dynamic interaction with the environment requires managing feedbacks that change a project significantly.

This is the case, among others, of business processes, commercial processes, research processes and organizational processes.

These projects need to behave simultaneously as systemic projects, producing what depends on them, and as adaptive processes, in order to interact with the environment.

The unicist architecture of adaptive project management can be defined by the use of a business objects based execution that is driven by a solution approach.

The development of adaptive project planning includes the use of plans A, B, C and D to manage the adaptive project.

Adaptive Planning to Manage Adaptive Projects

Plan A

Plan A is the basic plan that follows the ontogenetic map of the solution of a project. It is the most participative project planning and management because it is based on the influence the manager exerts on the project.

Plan B

Plan B is a superior plan that includes plan A plus an entropy inhibiting object for the resistance. It is based on inhibiting the entropy by using expertise driven objects and the management of the peopleware of the project.

Plan C

Plan C is a superior plan that includes plan B plus a catalyzing object to accelerate the change. It is based on the use of a technology that allows establishing a superior, although less participative solution for the project.

Plan D

Plan D is a plan to abort the project if the possibilities of success are not given. It includes the development of a succedaneous solution.

The Unicist Methodology to Research Human Adaptive Systems

The observation room for the Market Labs has been launched. It allows newcomers to become acquainted with the unicist complexity science research methodology. The Market Lab research is coordinated by Diana Belohlavek.

The methodology

There is a general research methodology that has to be followed to define the validity of a unicist ontological structure that is needed to deal with human adaptive systems.

The basic steps are:

  1. Develop the hypothetical structure of the ontology.
  2. Analyze the ontology and divide it into sub-ontologies following the laws of complementation and supplementation (only when necessary and possible).
  3. Define observable results that need to be considered to validate the ontology.
  4. Define the application fields of the ontology to validate its functionality.
  5. Develop the applications beginning with destructive and non-destructive pilot tests to forecast reality.
  6. Develop at least five experiences in the application field differing completely one from the other.
  7. Develop forecasts of at least three periods with full certainty.
  8. Restart the research process every time a deviation occurs.

Pilot Testing

Unicist Ontologies are omnipotent fantasies unless they have been tested. The testing of ontologies implies testing their functionality and requires a precise design of the tests. The “trial and error” use of objects is not a pilot test.

Pilot tests are the drivers of the unicist reflection processes. Pilot tests have two objectives:

  1. Falsification of knowledge
  2. Validation of knowledge

1) Falsification – Destructive testing

Falsification, in the field of complex problems, implies finding the limits of the validity of a given knowledge. To do so, it is necessary to develop experiences in homologous fields until the limits of validity are found. It defines the unified field that can be apprehended.

The falsification process is a destructive test for knowledge that is applied to realities with incomplete homologies. The destruction occurs when a condition is found to demonstrate the fallacy of the knowledge.

2) Validation – Non-destructive testing

Validation implies the factual confirmation of the validity of knowledge. Validation is achieved when knowledge suffices to exert influence on a reality in a predictable way.

Unicist Market Expansion: The confrontation of conquest

The natural path for innovations is the confrontation of conquest.

A confrontation of conquest begins when a new product with no synergy with the pre-existing products is launched. There is also a confrontation of conquest when new markets are sought.

When the products that have been launched do not belong to an existent category and satisfy non manifested needs, the confrontation of conquest begins with the weakening of some occupied niches to introduce the new product (guerrilla confrontation).

The unicist confrontation of conquest requires an empty space occupying strategy when non manifested needs are being satisfied.

The confrontation of conquest requires beginning with niches, continuing with segments and finally covering the market.

Confrontation of conquest implies a differentiation based on a strong preexistent credibility.

The Confrontation of Conquest fails when differentiation is not perceived by the market or when the influence cannot sustain the credibility of the proposal.

Conquest is based on:

  • Empty space occupation
  • Speed
  • Credibility

The first step to conquer is the occupation of empty spaces. The confrontation of market conquest begins based on the positioning in these niches.

To do so there is need for a previous action to open these niches. The action requires a non evident functional or ethical flank attack of the competitors’ solutions. Competition is lost if this flank attack is perceived.

A key factor in this confrontation is having a superior speed than that of the market leader. Higher speed is necessary to penetrate. If conquerors are slower than the market leaders they will just accumulate wishes and costs.

The conquest of markets is based on credibility. First choice positioning can only be achieved having a brand with the necessary objective and subjective attributes.

Thus empty spaces can be occupied with highly differentiated products and having a superior speed than the market defendant.

When a war of conquest is lost, the conqueror becomes a marginal competitor in that market.

Campaign 2013-2014: Operation Bridge-building

This is a metaphor to give access to the concept that underlies the campaign 2013 – 2014.

Birds that are role models in the Unicist Confederation’s Community

The unicist logical approach is based on the discovery of the ontogenetic intelligence of nature and its application to living beings in the field of biology and medical practice. Its application in the business world is a consequence of the fact that humans necessarily emulate in their minds what has been provided by nature.

This is such a size of a breakthrough that it has to be known that it is not a pseudo-intellectual approach to deal with businesses.

It is a scientific breakthrough made by Peter Belohlavek that built the structure of complexity science and changed all the complex aspects of traditional sciences: http://www.unicist.org/sdp.shtml#sa

“Operation bridge-building” is based on the recovery of the basics for any commercial approach that established new paradigms. Following a metaphor, we need to emulate the three birds that represent the approach to the market:

  1. If you want to do something new, lay the egg first and cackle afterwards…
  2. If you want to protect what you have done, lay the egg on one place but sing at another
  3. If you intend to be useful, lay the egg in another’s nest to allow the other to own the success… 
  4. Please… Do not forget to include your brand on the egg and to collect on time…

In plain English:
Nothing begins if you do not have a solution!!!

We have been the fastest growing research organization in the world, now we are aiming at being the fastest commercial distribution organization of the technologies developed at The Unicist Research Institute.

You are welcome.

What is the Unicist Approach to B2B Market R&D Labs?

The discovery of the unicist ontogenetic intelligence of nature allowed defining the triadic structure and the complementation and supplementation laws that underlie any entity.

These discoveries established the groundings to develop the unicist double dialectical logic that underlies all systems in nature.

The use of the double dialectical logic made the emulation of the organization of nature possible, developing objects to install into human adaptive systems to make them faster, safer and reliable. 

The Unicist B2B Market R&D Labs are based on (*):

1) The installation of a prototyper that allows launching the Lab with real commercial processes.

2) The use of the unicist business positioning segmentation.

3)  The use of the unicist business model segmentation, institutional roles segmentation, personal role segmentation and  relationship segmentation.

4)  The use of unicist country scenarios.

5) The triadic functional product segmentation.

6)  The use of virtual collaboration technologies.

7) The use of a Unicist Corporate University to catalyze commercial processes.

8) The use of object driven marketing.

9) The use of commercial objects, semantic objects and semiotic signs.

10) The use of client centered management as a meta-model.

11) The development of a unicist scorecard to monitor the metrics of the processes.

(*) A condition to manage the unicist approach is to go beyond the use of dualistic logic and use the double dialectical logic in order to be able to emulate dynamic processes in mind. It implies leaving behind the use of the disjunction “or” substituting it by the use of the functional conjunction “and”.
