You are having the unique opportunity of witnessing the most significant paradigm shift in science that was made in the last century, while you have the opportunity of profiting from it. This shift is based on the discovery of the ontogenetic intelligence of nature that regulates the evolution of living beings.
As adaptive systems have open boundaries you need to experience them in order to understand them. External observations are meaningless fantasies.
The personal experience needed to apprehend the paradigm shift:
Human Adaptive behavior requires influencing the environment and manage the influence of the environment.
This behavior is the natural behavior of wise people who always have a maximal strategy and a minimum strategy to achieve a purpose. The knowledge of both strategies allows people to have the concepts of what needs to be done. Concepts are the drivers of human actions. Wisdom implies having conceptual knowledge in order to generate value for others.
This wisdom is possible because it has its origin in the intelligence that underlies nature. This intelligence also has a maximal strategy to expand the boundaries and has a minimum strategy to survive. Mature people naturally tend to emulate this intelligence of nature without even knowing that it exists.
That is why you need to get in touch with the field in which you achieved wisdom in order to discover the way you already emulated the organization of nature by assuming the responsibility for results using a maximal strategy and a minimum strategy to achieve them.
You have to consider that 3 to 5 year-old children approach reality using concepts. This is, of course, an intuitive approach. Small children still have a “direct” connection with nature. They do not have to make a conscious effort to emulate the ontogenetic intelligence of nature. They just do it. That is why children are so adaptive.
“It is a pity that Albert Einstein died being a child.”
Every person that exceeded adolescence has some place where she/he is wise. This means that she/he has a strategic approach to some aspect of reality.
Please take your time. Discovering the wise aspects of one’s behavior takes time.
NOTE: The Unicist Research Institute was the pioneer in using the unicist logical approach in complexity science research and became a private global decentralized leading research organization in the field of human adaptive systems. It has an academic arm and a business arm.
