Metaphor: Unicist Corporate Universities

“The cost of a glass is in its solid;
its value is in its hollow.
Its cost has no value.
Its value has no cost.
But both of them are within the glass.”

“The cost of education is given by teaching;
its value is given by learning.
Teaching has no value.
Learning has no cost.
But both of them are within education.”

“The one who ignores is blind.
The one who ignores, but thinks he doesn’t,
is not only blind but deaf.
God and fools know everything,
But fools need to be right.”

Questions are needed to manage adaptive systems

Adaptive systems are in permanent motion. Therefore the knowledge of their nature is necessary in order to establish fixed points to influence them.

To apprehend an adaptive system it is necessary to have the questions to grasp what is behind the apparent actions. This is what makes evolution possible.

“Action-reflection-action” is the process that needs to be followed to influence an adaptive system’s environment.

The basic questions that need to be posed at the different levels of logical thinking and reflection are:

Why? – Conceptual thinking and reflection
What for? – Scientific / systemic thinking
What? – Analytic thinking
How? – Operational thinking

When reality is approached based on responses instead of question it is degraded to the pre-concepts that individuals have in their minds. This drives necessarily to parallel realities and involution.

The acceptance of this fact fosters a change of the educational systems. In the real world, students are basically evaluated based on the responses they are able to provide.

Approaching reality based on questions has become a “Martian” behavior. But the integration of both questions and answers is needed to generate evolution.

Conservatism rules, because it needs to foster predefined responses. The future generations will have to pay the prices the present generation doesn’t want to pay.

Unicist Tweetinar on market micro-segmentation

Micro-segmentation is the pathway to exert influence on real clients. It is based on the discovery of the unicist ontological market segmentation.

It allows managing and influencing buying actions and defining the limits of commercial possibilities.

Concepts and Fundamentals sustain human attitude and support this segmentation model. Anthropological life-styles allow defining the context of the commercial activities.

The questions that will be answered during the Unicist Tweetinar are:

1) What triggered the development of the ontological market segmentation model?
2) What is the unicist ontological segmentation model?
3) Fundamentals structure the ontology of human behavior. What are they for?
4) Which are the elements that integrate the unicist ontological market segmentation?
5) What is the universal unicist ontological market segmentation for?
6) What is the ontological micro-segmentation of markets?

35th Anniversary of The Unicist Research Institute

June 1976 was the beginning of the research of evolution in the field of complexity science. It was focused on approaching the nature of reality which required an ontological approach to the basic research and an object driven approach in the field of application.

The research drove to the discovery of the ontogenetic intelligence of nature, the unicist ontology, the unicist logic, the complexity science research methodology and the human ontointelligence.

This provided the basic knowledge to develop more than 3,500 applicative researches in the field of individual, institutional and social evolution that were finished until September 2010. The research work is still ongoing.

We would like to share with you this celebration giving you access to the book on:

Unicist Ethics: The Ethics of Doers

We consider it will allow you to expand your boundaries in work and businesses.

You can access the book at: http://www.unicist.org/deb_doers.php

This anniversary is a very special one, because it follows a turning point in our global expansion that took place during the last year.

Unicist Tweetinar: the use of unicist business objects

The use of business objects makes business processes flow in a natural way. The use of ontology based business objects allows inserting them into work processes to increase their added value and reduce their costs.

Energy saving is the core of the use of unicist business objects. It requires understanding the processes and the use of the objects as encapsulated adaptive systems developed to produce predefined results.

The questions that will be answered on the Unicist Tweetinar are:

  1. Why have you chosen to organize businesses using business objects?
  2. Business objects are encapsulated adaptive systems to produce results. What are they for?
  3. Who can deal with object driven organization and unicist object driven management?
  4. What is needed to approach the nature of business processes using their ontologies?
  5. This question is too abstract. Can you please give me a concrete example in real life?
  6. What types of objects are there in business?
  7. Everyone wants to catalyze, meaning accelerate, business processes. What is required to achieve it?

Unicist Ontological Object Driven Brand Building

The purpose of unicist brand-building is to develop business catalysts. Catalysts are process accelerators. Brands are a natural catalyst for market growth. At the same time, business objects can be used to catalyze the building of brands.

It is necessary to have apprehended the nature of a business and its necessary brand in order to be able to build objects to accelerate brand building. Apprehending the nature implies knowing the ontology of a business and its necessary brand.

The ontology of brands can be defined integrating the purpose, which is the building of goodwill, with the product brand and the institutional image.

Goodwill is a “subjective value” of something that exceeds the “objective value”.  Goodwill is measured in money.

Products are naturally the active function of brand building and the institutional image is the energy conservation function. If one of them fails, brand generate negative goodwill.

It has to be considered that business objects are adaptive systems developed to produce a predefined result. They emulate the organization of nature. E. g. a tree is an object. Individuals will have accelerated evolution if they can move trees from one environment to another. Brand building is accelerated if the adequate objects are used.

Unicist Ontology of the internal speed for decision making

Decisions have been made when they have been implemented. Before their implementation they are just hypothetical wishes.

The speed of decision making depends on the type of logical thinking of individuals. It has to be considered that speed is defined by the chronological lap between a new fact and the implemented real action to exert accurate influence.

The more evolved the logical thinking of individuals the higher the speed of action:

1) Analogical thinking drives to no decisions because personal needs and beliefs prevail. The speed is “0” (zero)

2) Operational thinking requires making the necessary technical analytical studies to define the problem and the possible solution. This is considered the standard time for decision making.

3) Analytical thinking allows focusing the operational technical analytical studies. This doubles the speed of operational thinking.

4) Systemic (Scientific) thinking focuses on a specific operation which reduces the cost of the preparation of decision making based on the existence of a hypothesis for a solution. This doubles the speed of analytical thinking.

5) Conceptual thinking provides the ontological structure that underlies the operation. It allows defining the essential drivers of the solution. This doubles the speed of systemic thinking.

6) Unicist thinking provides the understanding of the boundaries of the solution allowing the development of a plan B (including an entropy inhibitor) and a plan C (including a catalyst). This doubles the speed of conceptual thinking.

Conclusion

Internal speed cannot be accelerated without producing paradoxical results.

Internal speed evolves with the individual but a sudden acceleration drives individuals towards analogical thinking.

It has to be considered that the mass of the population tends to use analogical thinking at work. Teamwork decisions need to accept that a train has the speed of its slowest wagon (metaphor).

The above mentioned speeds have been empirically confirmed.

Unicist Tweetinar on Unicist Business Objects Building

The Unicist Standard for business objects building defines the norms that business objects have to fulfill to generate results.

Extreme design, the use of unicist modeling and the structure of the ontology of objects allow building unicist business objects.

Unicist business objects (UBO) are encapsulated adaptive systems that produce predefined results that can be inserted in work processes to increase productivity and quality and to save energy.

Classification of objects based on their use

Drivers: they are objects that produce results within work processes.

Catalysts: they are objects that are designed to accelerate drivers, tasks or processes.

Entropy inhibitors: Their role is to minimize the entropy of processes and results.

Inhibitors: They are objects to inhibit anti-conceptual actions in processes.

Gravitational objects: They are objects that generate an influential context that promotes the need of the results provided by tasks, objects or processes.

Objects do not substitute people’s responsibility, they provide a safer, faster and energy saving solution to be installed in work processes.

That is why objects can only be installed in organizations where the leaders assumed the responsibility for the results produced by the processes they manage.

Unicist ontology to make computers work in education

Computers are, objectively, the most powerful tool to support teaching processes. The objective of education is to provide the necessary knowledge to adapt to reality and to work.

But this adaptation implies integrating to the social environment and developing the necessary influence to make it grow in order to expand the possibilities for future generations.

Work implies generating added value and receiving the counterpart of this value.

Computers might generate paradoxical results

Reality is an adaptive system which, by definition, is complex.

Complexity implies, among other aspects, that the elements of reality have a fuzzy definition and that interdependency and their perception is ambiguous within an environment that has open boundaries and requires the use of integrative logic in order to be apprehended.

With dualistic thinking no apprehension of “actual” reality is possible

Computers provide a safe environment that gives instantaneous answers based on a dualistic logic, avoiding the need of facing the uncertainty and ambiguity of reality.

Therefore, the use of computers in teaching processes generates a parallel reality in which individuals know that they are in a disambiguated environment where they can dominate the reality that is being taught.

Growth implies being able to adapt to an environment that is wider, more complex or requiring more energy than the one the pupil is dealing with.

These parallel realities computers can generate become, for lazy minds, George Orwell’s “Big Brother”.

Computers empower the few pupils who are driven by their need of learning but the mass tends to look for a big brother to follow, while seeking to satisfy their individualistic needs.

Teachers should change their roles

The mass of teachers adopted the energy conservation role of teaching in the educational system. They had no need to invest the necessary energy to lead individual learning processes. It was not demanded from them. That is why Bloom’s taxonomy of learning did not spread and ended in schools for gifted pupils.

If teachers do not adopt the role of guiding learning processes, computers produce a thinking inhibiting environment for the mass.

The change of the role of teachers requires a generational change if there is a decision to empower the knowledge acquisition of pupils.

This decision has “no rating”, because empowering the assumption of responsibilities requires a higher level of energy consumption while “rating” demand a lowering of the energy consumption.

An adequately disguised degradation has high rating while upgrades have none.

Peopleware, software and hardware

Every system needs to be focused on “peopleware”, is put into action by the software and the energy conservation is provided by the hardware.

The use of computers in education requires defining the peopleware first, then the software and finally installing the necessary hardware.

Evolution requires having the concept of the peopleware including both pupils and teachers in order define an educational system.

Involution occurs when hardware solutions precede the software solutions. But both degrade if the peopleware has not demonstrated to be a valid purpose.

Involution is always less energy consuming than evolution. That is why it is very difficult to switch from involution to evolution and very easy the other way around.

Developing vs. underdeveloping Countries

Developing cultures naturally follow the rules of evolution while underdeveloping cultures tend to use shortcuts in their evolution that produce paradoxical effects.

The massification of computers in schools without having clarified the peopleware’s purpose and solved the software alternatives becomes an end in itself and degrades the educational processes. That is why it has rating. It provides a magical solution to a problem that requires a cultural change management strategy.

The effect is necessarily a degradation of the adapting capacity of the pupils while a parallel reality is being fostered and transformed into an addiction to avoid assuming the responsibility of thinking and / or reflecting.

A palliative

Parents need to assume the responsibility of leading the education of their children. We strongly recommend them to generate a real environment where their children have to adapt and solve problems that are beyond the limits of computers.

If you can achieve this goal, the mismanagement of computer aided education will be compensated and transformed into a functional process. If not, you will be seeing your children entering the “Animal Farm” looking for the “Big Brother”.
