Abstract: Discovery of the Unicist Ontology of Health
The research on the unicist ontology of health, which began in 2001, was focused on finding the essential structure of health that allows understanding the multiple medical specialties and medical approaches that deal with “the art of healing”. This research was developed at The Unicist Research Institute and was led by Peter Belohlavek.
Paradoxically, it could be finished after the ontological structures of healthcare were discovered. This research integrated health and medical approaches in a “unified field”. The previous researches that sustained this discovery were:
- The Unified Field of Healthcare
- Homology between Concepts and Stem Cells
- The Ontogenetic Intelligence of Nature
- The Fallacy of Organs and Chronic Diseases
- The Unicist Structure of Viruses
- The Ontogenetic Map of Chronic Diseases
- The Ontogenetic Map of Addictions
- The Ontogenetic Map of Stress
- The Ontogenetic Map of Cures
- The Ontogenetic Map of Immune Systems
- The Ontogenetic Map of Therapeutics
- The Ontogenetic Map of Diseases
Health can be defined as the integration of organic functionality, psychic functionality and the functionality of the inner energy flow.
The organic functionality is defined by the functionality of organs which, working as complex adaptive systems, can only be measured based on the consequences of their function. Organic functionality also includes the functionality of inner systems, although they cannot be considered as organs (e.g: the immune system). The fallacy of organs functionality is a proof of the limits of the possibilities of organic functionality.
The psychic functionality is defined by the functionality of the instinctive, spiritual and psychological processes whether they are conscious or unconscious that allow individuals to adapt to the environment. The psychic functionality deals with the interpersonal and intrapersonal adaptive processes and with the meaning of life.
The energy-flow functionality can only be measured by the consequences of its lack of functionality. It implies that the human being considered as a system flows internally in a harmonic way. This allows individuals to live and adapt to the environment.
Fostering health requires ensuring that the psychic functionality, which is the active function of health, maintains and does not hinder the energy flow that sustains the functionality of organs. Fostering health requires stimulating a meaningful life where the interpersonal and intrapersonal adaptation conflicts can be managed.
