The Unicist Evolutionary Approach and the Unicist Binary Actions
The Unicist Evolutionary Approach (UEA) and the Unicist Binary Actions (UBAs) were developed to manage adaptive systems and environments. Adaptive systems and environments have open boundaries and naturally developUBAs to ensure their functionality and adaptiveness. The knowledge of the concepts of these systems is necessary to be able to “see” and develop these UBAs.
It requires managing the unicist double dialectical logic (unicist logic) that emulates the intelligence of nature and allows dealing with concepts and fundamentals.
The unicist logic was created by Peter Belohlavek to develop solutions in complex adaptive environments, based on unicist binary actions. It allows managing their nature based on their concepts and fundamentals. Complex adaptive systems have open boundaries, that make them feedback dependent.
The unicist logic is a double dialectical logic that allows developing unicist binary actions in adaptive systems to ensure the generation of results.
It requires managing both the KNOW WHY and the KNOW HOW of the functions and processes involved. This logical approach simplified and ensured the generation of value in adaptive environments.
Functional Knowledge for Adaptive Solution Building
Functional knowledge allows understanding and managing the essential and operational functionality of "things". The unicist evolutionary approach is based on the development and use of functional knowledge to develop solutions in adaptive environments.
Functional knowledge requires integrating the know how of solutions with the know why that defines the fundamentals of the solutions, using the necessary reasoning patterns that allow developing adaptive solutions.
The know how is based on the use of reliable knowledge that requires emulating the solution in mind using the specific fundamentals and having the procedural knowledge of the actions and unicist binary actions (UBAs) of what needs to be done.
The know why is an epistemological approach that requires knowing the concepts and fundamentals of what is intended to be done and the justifications and foundations that make the knowledge reliable.
The functionality of abductive, deductive and inductive reasoning processes sustains the development of solutions in adaptive environments and requires the use of the unicist logic (double dialectical logic) to manage their functionality, dynamics and evolution.
Dualism in Adaptive Environments: Aprioristic Fallacies
Unicist binary actions can only be managed in adaptive environments when dualism does not prevail. Dualism is the most energy saving approach of the brain, which necessarily implies, at the end, the use of exclusive disjunctions that ensure the validity of what one is thinking or doing.
Fallacies are a palliative that allows building a comfort zone without considering the actual functionality of the environment. The building of fallacies becomes necessary when someone approaches the real world using a dualistic approach. The paradox is that, at the end of a solution building process, a set of univocal actions needs to be developed to install the double dialectical process.
Aprioristic fallacies are fallacies of the collective intelligence of an individual. They are the consequence of using dualism to deal with adaptive environments. https://www.unicist.net/economics/unicist-anthropology-discovery-of-collective-intelligence/
This dualism generates spontaneous projections that are considered as valid knowledge. They provide information to build an “immediate” parallel reality that allows manipulating the environment one is acting on. As fallacies are unconscious lies, there is no feeling of guilt.
Aprioristic fallacies are extremely destructive and require using manipulation to “force” people into a parallel world where this manipulator is in control. Marginals, sociopaths and psychopaths are examples of compulsive users of aprioristic fallacies.
Truth Driven Fallacies
These fallacies are driven by a compulsive need for being right. In triadic terms, truth has no active function that endangers its validity. That is why projections are the drivers used to “convert” people to this truth. The Icarus syndrome is a natural consequence of this fallacy. Truth fallacies are the basic tool to build sects or groups with “absolute” ideologies. Truth driven fallacies are a palliative for “inferiority feelings”.
Self-perception fallacies are driven by a compulsive need for self-confirming ideas or needs. It implies dealing with the “here and now” that has no room for energy conservation. The Sisyphus syndrome is a natural consequence of this fallacy. In this context, the projects drive to manipulation to build and sustain this fallacy and enjoy the role of hero. Self-perception fallacies are a palliative for “superiority feelings”.
Recognition Driven Fallacies
These fallacies are driven by a compulsive need for recognition. This implies that the purpose of actions is left aside and replaced by the recognition of actions. These fallacies transform “means into ends” to obtain recognition that do not depend on the generation of results. The Aphrodite syndrome is a natural consequence of this fallacy. The projections that are generated sustain the comfort zone and imply empowering the role of operation disregarding functionality. Recognition driven fallacies are a palliative for “authority conflicts”.
Unicist Reflection, the Antidote to Fallacies
Aprioristic fallacies can only happen in dysfunctional environments. An environment is dysfunctional when the participating members need to build a parallel reality in order to have a place.
Each aprioristic fallacy has its own nature: While rationalistic fallacies are sustained by “heroic” actions, recognition fallacies are based on “subjectification” and truth fallacies are driven by “messianic” beliefs.
Unicist reflection is the methodology to deal with adaptive environments and the antidote to fallacies. It is driven by destructive and non-destructive tests in the real world that define the validity of knowledge. Its use hinders any kind of fallacies and the consolidation of dualistic fallacies. https://www.unicist.org/conceptual-thinking/unicist-reflection/
The Unicist Double Dialectical Logic: A Universal Synthetic Logic
The Unicist Double Dialectical Logic (Unicist Logic) is a synthetic logic that emulates the ontogenetic intelligence of nature and its maximal strategies to grow and minimum strategies to survive.
It was developed to validate the triadic functionality of natural and artificial complex adaptive systems and to design and build unicist binary actions to manage them.
The unicist double dialectical logic is a universal logic because it is based on the principles that define the essential functionality of nature. It allows dealing with adaptive environments and is the integrator of all logical reasoning patterns. The different logical patterns define different reasoning structures to develop solutions.
The unicist double dialectical logic was developed to manage the unified field of complex adaptive systems and develop unicist binary actions to ensure the generation of value. It allows managing the functionality, dynamics and evolution of adaptive systems and environments.
It emulates the intelligence and organization of nature and allows understanding the root causes and the unified field of processes, evolution and behavior.
Unicist Binary Actions (UBAs) to Manage Adaptiveness
Influencing adaptive environments requires the development of simultaneous unicist binary actions to influence each adaptive function of the environment.
It requires defining the ontogenetic maps of the functions that are involved, their maximal and minimum strategies, and developing the consequent UBAs to ensure the generation of results.
The adaptive behavior of social and institutional environments is homologous to the behavior of nature. Their ontogenetic maps have a triadic structure that requires going beyond dualistic thinking using the double dialectical logic and developing UBAs.
Unicist Binary Actions (UBAs) to Influence the Environment
The double dialectical logic drives towards unicist binary actions that allow transforming abductive, inductive and deductive reasoning processes into value adding actions. The use of unicist artificial intelligence simplifies this process.
Its application allowed developing the structure of complexity sciences to study and deal with adaptive systems and environments.
The use of double dialectical logic allows emulating the structure of adaptive systems to develop UBAs to manage their functionality, dynamics and evolution.
UBAs are implemented as objects. There are two types of UBAs needed to ensure the functionality, dynamics and evolution of an adaptive system.
The first type of UBAs, Type 1, that is required to be implemented integrates a catalyzing function with the specific function, which fosters external expansion.
The second type of UBAs, Type 2, deals with the integration of maximal and minimum strategies to ensure the achievement of results.
Going Beyond Dualism to Build UBAs
Dualistic thinking is “the” aprioristic fallacy when dealing with adaptive systems that have open boundaries and biunivocal relationships with their contexts.
Dualism is only functional in non-adaptive environments driven by univocal cause-effect relationships. Adaptation becomes impossible when using dualistic thinking.
While the neural functionality is dualistic (neurons are “on” or “off), the ontogenetic intelligence of nature is triadic. Therefore, it is necessary to integrate two dualistic approaches to apprehend the nature of things and develop UBAs to influence adaptive environments.
The design of UBAs to manage adaptive systems and environments requires an integrative approach that is based on the conjunction of actions, processes and objects.
The Use of Ambiguous Language to Manage UBAs
The integration of maximal and minimum strategies is perceived as ambiguous, which requires managing ambiguity in order to develop UBAs. Ambiguous language is necessary to deal with ambiguity and to influence adaptive systems.
There are two different types of dialogues when using ambiguous language: the dialogue with the facts and the dialogue with the people who are participating in the solution. Pilot tests are the way to dialogue, using ambiguous language, with facts.
Ambiguous language is based on a maximal strategy driven by a “dialogue” and a minimum strategy driven by a “monologue”, which is an informative action. A dialogue itself is a biunivocal communication with mutual adaptation to the feedbacks received.
Maximal strategies are based on the conjunction “and”, and backward chaining thinking. This implies that a dialogue is possible if the final objective is in the mind of those who are dialoguing. When there is no final objective in the mind, there is no dialogue, just the coexistence of two monologues.
Maximal and minimum strategies are the two poles of any double dialectical action.
The Unicist Evolutionary Approach in the 4IR
The 4th Industrial Revolution is the first industrial revolution that introduced a paradigm shift focused on the generation of market value.
This drove to the development of the Unicist Evolutionary Approach (UEA) that uses fundamentals to build a framework to manage the root-causes of social and business functions.
It increases their adaptability and their speed of growth and improves their profitability in an environment of customer orientation and sustainability. The UEA integrates: strategy, tactics and the organization by roles and objects.
• Unicist Strategy: to develop maximal and minimum strategies, within the limits of what is possible to be achieved, to grow and ensure results.
• The Unified Field Management: to manage the unified field of the concepts of social and business processes, to define what is possible to be achieved and how to make it happen.
• Root Cause Management: to manage the root causes of social and business problems and the root drivers of solutions.
Unicist Tactics – UBAs
• Unicist Binary Actions: based on unicist double dialectical logic to ensure the functionality and sustainability of adaptive systems and environments.
• Conceptual Design: to define the architecture of the unified field of social and business solutions.
• The Use of Catalysts: to accelerate the processes of social and business functions and ensure the achievement of results in adaptive environments.
Organization by Roles & Objects
• Social and Business Objects: to accelerate business processes and ensure their quality.
• Timing: to ensure the synchronicity and functionality of processes.
• Pilot Tests: to develop pilot tests to ensure results, find the root causes of problems and develop their solutions.
The unicist evolutionary approach to businesses increases their adaptability and their speed of growth and improves their profitability in an environment of customer orientation and sustainability. Access
Precedents of the Double Dialectical Logic
The unicist double dialectical logic goes beyond philosophy and is a scientific approach to the drivers of behavior and evolution. This logic is homologous with the “category theory”, which is the mathematics that integrates the different mathematics by using a superior level of abstraction.
The main epistemological precedents of the triadic and the double dialectical patterns can be found in:
1. The triadic universal categories of Charles S. Peirce
2. The fundamentals of learning processes of Jean Piaget
3. The triadic structure and unified field of the TAO
4. The conceptualization of Immanuel Kant
5. The first principles of Aristotle
