Grammar and Semantics of the Unicist Standard Language

The unicist standard language was developed to manage the functionality of the real world. It allows defining and describing the concepts and fundamentals of things, which are defined by their ontogenetic maps. The use of this language is necessary to read these maps and their use to build the necessary binary actions to make things happen.

It is a universal language like mathematics. Like musical language, it has its own semiotics, semantics, and grammar. The unicist standard language is a conceptual language that uses natural language and the unicist logic to define ontogenetic maps that describe the functionality of adaptive environments.

Unicist standard language allows dealing with the concepts of things, emulating the way they are stored in the brain, and translating them into natural language to define actions that can be communicated to people who do not manage the concepts of a specific field.

The unicist standard language has its grammar, syntax, and semantics, and can be shared with anyone who can read the language. It was created by Peter Belohlavek to describe, define and manage the functionality, dynamics, and evolution of adaptive environments.

Both mathematical language and unicist standard language emulate solutions in different fields, using different codes. They are both a sort of metalanguage that is integrated with other languages to work in the real world. Data-based AI uses mathematical language while fundamentals-based AI uses unicist standard language.

The objective of this information is proving an initial guide to use ontogenetic maps in the business world. It provides the grammar and the semantics that establish the framework to use the functionalist approach.

It is required that the participants understand the ontogenesis of this approach, which is the discovery of the structure of the ontogenetic intelligence of nature and the consequent unicist logic that emulates the intelligence of nature.

Catalysts drive the Functionality of Businesses

The discovery of the structure of the functionality of biological and behavioral catalysts allowed developing business catalysts which are necessary to accelerate processes and drive the evolution of businesses.

Behavioral catalysts are needed to ensure the sustainability of business processes. The acceleration of the processes they produce, depends on the specificity of the catalysts. There are generic, systemic, specific and conjunctural catalysts. The more conjuncture oriented the catalysts are, the higher the level of acceleration they produce and the shorter their lifecycle is.

Business catalysts are process accelerators that allow ensuring the functionality and evolution of adaptive business functions.

The researches made at The Unicist Research Institute demonstrated that the evolution of living beings, social entities and businesses require the use of catalysts. Therefore, the success of sustainable businesses fully depends on the use of catalysts.

For example: While 100% of the successful marketing actions were sustained by catalysts, 100% of the failures had insufficient catalysts. The use of catalysts is a must in marketing.

All developed cultures and expanding businesses use catalyzing objects. Some of the paradigmatic examples in the business world are: IBM, Pfizer, Bayer, Shell, etc. www.arkenea.com/blog/how-successful-startups-started

The Unicist Theory of Functionality

This is an introduction to the Unicist Theory of Functionality, developed by Peter Belohlavek at The Unicist Research Institute, that introduced a simplification in the development of solutions in adaptive environments. It allows making a logical approach to the real world, developing the functional structures of solutions and the operational processes to make them happen.

The following discoveries were the milestones of the development of the theory of functionality: complex systems research method (1980), functionality of human ontointelligence (1984), the ontogenetic intelligence of nature (1998), the unicist ontology of biological systems (2012) and the unicist ontology of wide and restricted contexts (2017).

The Synthesis

The Unicist Theory of Functionality affirms and demonstrates that there is nothing in the universe, which is part of a system, that does not work with a purpose, an active and entropic function, and an energy conservation function. This structure works through unicist binary actions (UBA) that produce the functionality of any entity or process, whatever its kind. The unified field of an entity or process needs to be managed to ensure its functionality.

The following form of the synopsis of the guiding idea of the functionality of an entity provides the idea of how this information is used.

We invite you to participate in a virtual 20-minute lecture on October 13, 2021 at 2:00 pm ET that will be led by Peter Belohlavek

From Physics to Genomics

The triadic structure of the atom, defined by the proton, the electron, and the neutron, is an example of functionality in physics. In the presentation of the Unicist Theory of Functionality you will also find multiple applications in physics such as the functionality of the plane, the electric motor, etc.

In genomics, you will find its triadic functionality in all its functions. E.g., nucleotides, integrated by sugar, nitrogenous base and phosphate; amino acids integrated by hydrogen and amine and carboxylic acid groups; codons that are a specific sequence of three consecutive nucleotides that is part of the genetic code.

Epigenetic functions work as inhibitors or catalysts that affect the behavior of genes.

Amino-Acids

From Microcosmos to Macrocosmos

The unified field of the macro and the microcosmos is beyond the operational solutions developed in physics and needs to be found at the functional level of the “system”.

The microcosmos is the active function and the macrocosmos is the energy conservation function while the purpose is blurred or subject to speculation or religious beliefs.

The macro and the microcosmos are evident in social and economic systems, where family and society or microeconomics and macroeconomics are, respectively, the active functions and the energy conservation functions of the systems that have evident purposes.

From Univocal Actions to Binary Actions

Univocal actions work in controlled environments where the natural reactions can be inhibited. But it has to be considered that the triadic functionality of any system requires that there are two synchronized actions that, on the one hand, integrate the active function with the purpose, and on the other hand, integrate the energy conservation function with the purpose. Synchronized actions include the reaction as part of the system. This behavior applies to any adaptive environment, including the social, economic and business fields.

In the field of business, binary actions are two synchronized actions that aim at the same purpose. Every business function is defined by a triadic structure that defines its purpose, its active function, and its energy conservation function. The active function, aiming at the purpose, and the energy conservation function, sustaining the same purpose, are the binary actions in businesses.

Here you can find a series of unicist binary actions to generate value that are evident, which are benchmarks you might use:

  1. Increasing productivity (UBAa) + Ensuring quality (UBAb) = Value generation
  2. Influential marketing (UBAa) + Effective selling (UBAb) = Generating revenue
  3. Ensuring efficacy (UBAa) + Ensuring efficiency (UBAb) = Effectiveness
  4. Active participation (UBAa) + Non-exerted power (UBAb) = Leadership
  5. Functional processes (UBAa) + Functional objects (UBAb) = Organization


To generate results, the synchronicity of binary actions requires beginning with UBAa, which are active function actions, and then developing UBAb that are energy conservation actions.

From Human Intelligence to Fundamentals-based AI

Unicist AI

Unicist AI became possible due to the functionalist approach to decision processes. It is a fundamentals-based intelligence that emulates the reasoning process of human intelligence and includes two functions to make this possible: The learning function and the decision function. The subjective bias of data-based AI is solved using this fundamentals-based AI.

Unicist AI allows developing different types of functionalities according to what is needed. 

There are basically 4 types of functions, which are homologous to human decision-making processes, that are being emulated: the descriptive function, the diagnosing function, the predictive function, and the prescriptive function.

From Human Work and Robots to Cobots (Collaborative Robots)

The business application of Cobots is based on the development of the fundamentals-based AI and the binary actions that ensure the generation of results. Cobots use functional rules to build empirical solutions. They are not based on empirical rules.

Cobots became possible due to the IoT that provided the resources to introduce them in work and business processes. They became necessary in organizations that decided to enter the adaptability and customer orientation fostered by the 4th industrial revolution.

From Individual Intelligence to Collective Intelligence

Individual intelligence works with the triadic structure of the intelligence that underlies nature. The adaption process of humans is sustained by the ontointelligence that drives the intentions of individuals, the reactive intelligence that drives the reactions of individuals to the stimuli of the environment, and the active intelligence that drives the functionality of the actions necessary to adapt.

The concepts people have in mind drive their actions. In this context, collective intelligence is the filter of experiences that allows storing concepts in the long-term memory of an individual.

It is the individual intelligence in action that builds a bridge between the archetypes and lifestyles of cultures and the social, institutional, and individual behavior.

Individual intelligence is always enhanced or inhibited by the lifestyle of a culture and the myths of groups, which are driven by the fundamentals of the cultural archetype. Therefore, collective intelligence drives empathy and allows building binary actions.

From Functional Time to the Synchronicity of Actions

Functional time is the space of lifecycle that elapses between facts. A lifecycle defines the distance between the initial stage and the final stage of something, which defines the meaning of time based on the facts that are functional in this space.

The definition of the functionality of time refers to the triadic structure integrated by the acceleration of actions, the speed of events and the synchronicity that needs to be achieved.

Contribution of the Theory of Functionality

This theory introduced a functionalist approach to the real world that allows developing the functional structures of solutions and the operational processes to make them happen.

Business Strategy: How many actions do you anticipate?

Time management is part of the functionality of ethical intelligence. Ethical intelligence is the “deepest” driver of human intelligence and defines the true intentions of a person. It is the main unconscious driver of human actions. It can only be measured by the consequences of the actions of an individual.

Its main characteristic is that it evolves or involves driven by the maturity of an individual. A just-born baby needs to be driven by survival ethical intelligence while a mature person that has achieved a high level of adaptiveness in the world would be driven by conceptual ethical intelligence. There is also a collective ethical intelligence that drives social behavior and is implicit in the archetype of a culture.

Time management is one of the skills that are driven by ethical intelligence. The higher the level of ethical intelligence the wider the scope of the actions and individual can plan.

 On the one end, people who are driven by the need to survive can only work here and now. On the other end, people can manage timeless strategies when they are driven by conceptual ethical intelligence. These skills expand driven by the maturity of people.

The development of strategies, anticipating what will happen, expands the ethical intelligence of an individual.  Only psychopaths or sociopaths, who use manipulation as a tool, can anticipate actions to profit from others without adding value. We recommend using the unicist strategy designer that will help you to anticipate and plan binary actions in any adaptive environment. https://www.unicist-systems.com

The 4th Industrial Revolution requires a Conceptual Mindset

Industrial Revolutions foster and establish dominant mindsets to fulfill their purposes. A conceptual mindset is necessary to deal with the possibilities opened by the 4th Industrial Revolution in order to manage the unified field of business processes.

Mindsets of Industrial Revolutions

The discovery that the concepts people have in their minds, drive their actions and that the concepts and fundamentals that underlie business functions define the root causes of their functionality, expanded the possibilities of business management.

Therefore, conceptualization is the necessary mindset to deal with the 4th Industrial Revolution. It allows managing the unified field of business functions integrating the different aspects of the business processes including the restricted and wide contexts.

This stage requires managing the concepts of business functions to improve the adaptiveness of processes by being fully consumer/user/buyer oriented, increasing the productivity and increasing the quality to become fully reliable.

The conceptual mindset required by the 4th Industrial Revolution uses destructive and non-destructive pilot tests and uses an action-reflection-action process that includes the use of the unicist strategic approach to forecast, produce and ensure results.

The solutions are based on the ontogenetic maps of business functions that define their concepts and fundamentals. This information allows defining what is needed and comparing it with the actual state to define the actions that are necessary to achieve the established goals. The pilot tests of their implementation allow learning from the feedback.

Introduction to the Unicist Unified Field Method

The unicist unified field method was developed to define what is possible to be achieved when dealing with specific adaptive systems or environments. The objective of this method is to define the framework for solution building processes.

This method provides the necessary information that ensures the possibility of developing reliable maximal strategies to grow and minimum strategies to ensure results. It is the first step of any complex problem-solving approach.

The Functionality of the Method

The unicist unified field method was developed to discover the possibilities of influencing an environment. The knowledge of possibilities defines what is possible to be done in a specific environment.

Therefore, the unicist evolutionary approach to reality begins by defining what is possible to be achieved before defining what wants or what needs to be done.

The unicist unified method is a 3-step method that allows defining the possibilities based on the capacity of envisioning a specific field of the environment and the technological and social trends that drive its evolution.

The three steps are:

  1. Define the conceptual structure of the field of actions (category)
  2. Emulate the functionality and trends of the category in mind
  3. Define the possibilities of the empty spaces that are found

Future Scenarios are based on Unicist Logical Inferences

The unicist approach to future research uses logical inferences based on the unicist double dialectical logic that was developed based on the discovery of the unicist ontogenetic intelligence of nature that regulates its evolution. These developments began in the 80’s and were led by Peter Belohlavek at The Unicist Research Institute.

It was a step by step discovery based on the apprehension of the nature of social phenomena entering afterwards in the institutional and individual evolution. Its integration with biology and physics was the final stage that was achieved.

This approach is based on the fact that future and past are not symmetric. This is the case of all the environments that are evolving or involving. The past and the future are only symmetric in stagnated environments.

The objective of the unicist approach to future research is to define a future scenario in order to adapt and influence it.

When an individual “looks back” at the history, the events that occurred are reasonable, understandable and logical. Therefore when approaching the future what is required is having the “logic” that is evident when analyzing the events of the past.

The building of future scenarios is based on the fact that the structure of the unicist ontology of a specific environment needs to be found in the past and that the facts of the present are used to infer the future.

The unicist approach to future research is based on inferring the future based on the laws of evolution established by the ontogenetic intelligence of nature, which allowed developing the unicist ontology of evolution.

This allows building reliable future scenarios.

Unicist Strategy: An Emulation of Nature

The unicist strategy emulates the intelligence of nature by developing maximal strategies to grow and minimum strategies to ensure survival. This strategy manages the root causes of processes to build catalysts to accelerate business functions. It uses unicist binary actions (DDAs) and objects to ensure the generation of value in complex adaptive environments.

The discovery of the ontogenetic intelligence of nature opened the possibility of understanding and influencing nature and complex adaptive systems.

The emulation of nature was the basis for the development of the Unicist Strategy and its applications to all the fields of human activities that require a strategic approach. Thus, the maximal strategies to expand the boundaries and the minimum strategies to survive were established.

The double dialectical logic allowed transforming supplementation and complementation laws into strategic functions that drive the maximal and minimum strategies making evolution reasonable, understandable and predictable.

Therefore, the simplicity of the unicist strategy is based on the emulation of the intelligence that underlies nature.

The Basics of Unicist Binary Actions (DDAs)

Double Dialectical Behavior is natural and “automatic” in any complex adaptive system. The discovery of the structure of the concepts that underlies these systems allowed understanding how these double dialectical actions drive the evolution of these systems.

Examples of unicist binary actions:

  1. The actions of living beings deal with growth – survival
  2. The actions of human actions deal with efficacy – efficiency
  3. The actions of the evolution of the universe deal with expansion – gravitational force
  4. The actions of leadership deal with participation – power exertion
  5. The actions of aesthetics deal with desirability – harmony

These actions deal with the double dialectical logic that allows emulating the functionality, dynamics and evolution of adaptive systems or environments.

Its application to influence human behavior drove to the modeling of unicist binary actions (also called DDAs) which allow designing influential strategies to expand while developing the necessary actions to ensure survival.

DDAs are the necessary synchronic binary actions that ensure results when dealing with adaptive systems. They are based on the management of the root causes of their functionality.
