The evolution of living beings is regulated by their essential concepts. It includes an action generating functional sub-concept and an energy conservation contractive sub-concept.
The most difficult human task is the introspection to apprehend the essential concept of a given reality or a living being. It requires reflection, the validation of the conclusions and a long period of accurate prognostics.
Essential concepts cannot be falsified because of their intrinsic characteristic of being essential.
The essential concept’s functional sub-concept is a concept in itself. It includes an action generating verbal function, an energy conservation adverbial function and a purpose defining its vital functionality.
When approaching a functional concept, its action is observed, its conservation is perceived and the purpose is intuited.
The action, conservation and expansion functions define a set. The less perceivable element of such set defines how to approach a concept. The perception of the purpose requires an intuitive approach. Therefore a functional concept must be approached intuitively.
The verbal function of an essential concept is a functional purpose that requires an intuitive approach.
The adverbial function – the energy conservation function – of an essential concept is a concept in itself; it can only be intuited.
The vital function defines de ultimate purpose of the living being or complex reality.
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.
