Unicist Thinking

From Dualism to Double Dialectical Approaches

The dualism of neural functionality makes dualistic logical approaches become the natural way to deal with reality. This dualism is functional in operational environments, ruled by cause-effect relationships where the actors dominate the consequences of their actions.

Fallacy Dualistic DialecticsCommon sense is the consequence of having found recipes using dualistic logic. Common sense rules are pre-concepts that work as recipes for the one who uses them.

At an abstract level, truth tables are also the consequence of the use of dualism. In the field of dualistic approaches things are true or false, good or bad, etc.

The disjunction “OR” is the basic rule when dealing with dualistic approaches in operational environments. This makes people feel powerful because they establish the “OR” they need.

But when dealing with adaptive aspects of reality there is no possibility to define actions using a dualistic approach because the triadic structure of reality cannot be apprehended with a binary model.

The Triadic Structure of Nature

The triadic structure of reality is defined by a purpose, an active function and an energy conservation function. To apprehend this triadic structure with a binary mind it is necessary to be able to build a double dialectical approach in mind that emulates a specific reality.

The Unicist Paradigm Shift in ScienceThis approach was named unicist double dialectical logic because it allows defining the unified field of adaptive systems in order to diagnose and influence them. It is based on the fact that in complex systems all the elements are integrated by the conjunction “AND”.

The Unicist double dialectical approach leaves behind the truth tables (True “OR” False) and replaces them with functional tables evaluating the functionality based on predefined purposes.

The unicist reflection process: action-reflection-action is the technology to be used to transform dualistic logical approaches into unicist double dialectical approaches in order to define complex adaptive systems.

This technology allows starting with the use of disjunctions “OR” and ending with the use of conjunctions “AND”.

This process requires that those who have decided to deal with complex problems need to be fully focused on producing results, have sound knowledge of the problem and have decided to influence it in an adapted way.

The paradox is that at the end the diagnoses and solutions found need to be transformed into operational “recipes” in order to make them manageable by ordinary people.

But it has to be considered that without being able to manage the triadic structure of complex adaptive systems, the diagnoses and solutions developed are either palliatives or fallacies that cannot produce meaningful results.

This White Paper will give you a synthetic idea of how to deal with the unicist double dialectical approach to adaptive aspects of reality.

How does human double dialectical behavior work?

The Unicist Dialectics allows dealing with human adaptive systems managing the integration of their double dialectical behavior.

Unicist Double Dialectical ThinkingWith this double dialectical approach (purpose – active function, purpose – energy conservation function) one can understand the structure of an adaptive system and its evolution.

Unicist Dialectics is based on the emulation of adaptive systems, emulating the ontogenetic intelligence of nature (purpose, active principle, energy conservation principle).

Its application to human adaptive systems made the emulation of individual, institutional and social evolution possible.

To approach a reality integrated by three elements with a dualistic mind it is necessary to consider it as a dualistic integration of binary elements. To perceive dialectics it is necessary to have a high abstraction capacity.

Those who do not have the abstraction capacity consider the dialectical behavior based on observable facts of reality. They cannot differentiate essential correlations from cause-effect relations.

Individuals who have the necessary functional intelligence and the will to add value to an environment, and are able to see the double dialectics, develop two different actions to ensure results: on the one hand, they impulse action and on the other hand, they develop actions to inhibit entropy.

Individuals who approach reality using unicist thinking define strategies based on taxonomies and planed actions to influence the environment.

The Unicist Double Dialectical Thinking

Unicist thinking integrates the different types of thoughts (operational, analytical, scientific/systemic, and conceptual) in order to influence apprehending a complex reality in its oneness. This requires a double dialectical thinking to approach reality in its nature.

The unicist thinking approach is very simple, but this simplicity requires a strict methodological approach to be achieved.

Complexity is the unique environment where the use of unicist thinking is necessary.

But most people use rationalistic dissection of reality, religious beliefs, ideological solutions, commonsense, subjectivism and fundamentalism to face complexity.

The unicist thinking process is basic to influence complex realities.

The access to double dialectical thinking implies both a change in the paradigms to approach reality and exert influence on it and a consistent learning process.

The Ontogenesis of Double Dialectical Thinking

Extrinsic concepts are those deposited by humans on their deeds and on the elements of nature they use.

The understanding of a reality begins with the discovery of its purpose. After the purpose has been approached it is possible to build the first dialectic pair.

The verbal function is the antithesis (active and entropic function) that puts the purpose into action while its implicit utopia tries to change it.

If there was no entropy inhibiting element, this situation would evolve into a dysfunctional result regarding the original purpose.

When the first dialectic pair functions, the second dialectic is born. The purpose is sustained by the energy conservation function.

This conservation function is a complementary element that limits the effects of the verbal function to secure the maintenance of the objectives implicit in the purpose.

Finally the integration of these two dialectics is possible when they are integrated in a unified field.
