The Unicist Research Institute invites you to toast on its 33rd Anniversary.  We invite you to light a candle for one minute on Monday, 1st of June at 1:00 pm New York time for the new era that began in the field of complexity management after the discovery of the ontogenetic intelligence of nature.

33anniversary

We are celebrating this anniversary having installed the countdown of the first ontology based knowledge building search engine available in the world:

We are making a business knowledge building engine available for the business world. It includes the technical, analytical and fundamental knowledge to make reliable decisions. The factual and analytical knowledge-base is provided by the existing search engines. The fundamentals knowledge bank is provided by The Unicist Research Institute based on almost 3,000 ontological structures, including the archetypes of 51 countries,  researched and discovered during the last 30 years in the field of individual, institutional and social evolution. The unicist ontology based fundamental analysis made the approach to complexity reliable and a cybernetic approach to business possible. This participative knowledge building technology will expand the technical, analytical and fundamental knowledge bank ad infinitum.

Unicist ontology of economic growth

To translate this post, click on the title to open it and then click on your flag in the right menu.

Technology is a key factor in economic growth. This means that innovation is one of the key fundamentals of growth. But economic growth, triggered by technological innovation, is also the key aspect of the evolution of ideologies. The technology of Internet fostered more democracy than many political actions. Understanding innovation and how to deal with it allows fostering growth and building counter-cycles.

Discovery of Unicist Econometrics = Technical analysis & Fundamental analysis

To translate this post click on your flag in the right menu of the blog’s homepage.

When approaching reality with metric models it is necessary to consider that any dualistic analysis is freezing one of the dimensions defining a Ceteris Paribus which establishes the limits of knowledge and influence.
The unicist approach to econometrics provides the solution of Ceteris Paribus which is an implicit weakness. The difference considering the unified field defined with the unicist approach is that people are aware of the limits of knowledge. This implies an integration of the world of possibilities with a probabilistic approach.
The integration of the unicist approach with conventional econometrics made diagnostics of countries, markets and businesses highly reliable.
The unicist approach helps to define the possibilities and conventional econometrics defines the operational probabilities.
While Fundamentals provide the limits of the actual possibilities and catalyze trends, Technical Analysis provides the information that ensures short-term prognostics and the monitoring of the triggers and drivers of evolution.
The existence of expert systems both for econometric analysis and fundamental analysis (BEES – Blue Eagle X-pert System), ensure a quality assured approach to the complexity of economics.
Unicist Econometrics provides a powerful approach for diagnostics, scenario building, future research and strategy by integrating technical analysis with unicist ontology-based fundamental analysis.

What works in gifted education

To translate this post click on your flag in the right menu of the blog’s homepage.

The elites are responsible for proposing new ways to foster evolution. The education of the elites is one of the problems that defines if evolution is empowered or inhibited. Because of ideological reasons, many cultures do not foster the education of the gifted and talented. Other cultures, as it is seen in the following excerpt, research to find the best ways to foster their gifted and talented members.

The National Research Center on the Gifted and Talented (NRC/GT)
“The National Research Center on Gifted and Talented (NRC/GT) current 5-year research plan will lead to empirical and descriptive understandings of “what works in gifted education.” This plan requires the integrated study of identification systems, model-based curricula in reading and math, and assessments. The focus of the research study will be to: (a) extend and enhance prior studies by developing a defensible identification system; (b) analyze the effects of curricular units in reading and math on students identified using traditional and expanded criteria; and (c) measure outcomes using extended standards-based assessments, structured performance assessments, or standardized achievement measures. An identification system will be created to be responsive to students from across all cultural groups and from all socioeconomic groups. In the spring of 2008, a talent pool of grade 2 students will be identified using the Iowa Tests of Basic Skills, Cognitive Abilities Test, and teacher rating scales. This talent pool, as well as their classmates, will participate in the math or reading curriculum (randomly assigned at the school level) in grade 3 (2008-2009 academic year). In the spring of 2009, a second group of grade 2 students will be identified using the same criteria, and they will participate in the reading or math curriculum along with their classmates during the 2009-2010 academic year…..”  http://www.gifted.uconn.edu/NRCGT.html

Fundamentalism: Consequences of the Crisis 2008 – 2010

To translate this post click on your flag in the right menu of the blog’s homepage.

Through the forecast developed based on the unicist anthropological approach of next years’ evolution, we expect to see an expansion of sects, adopting many shapes, as a response of the group of individuals that feel “excluded” by the crisis.

Fundamentalists live in parallel realities
Everybody lives in different realities. Vacations, family life, jobs, communitarian activities, are examples of different spheres (realities) in which individuals live.
But they become parallel realities when there is a compulsion to create a separate world to escape, obtain pleasure, patronize or avoid responsibilities in the real world.
Parallel realities are imaginary situations installed beyond the real world that are built upon fallacious beliefs or needs. Fallacies are functional to humans. Individual fallacies reduce personal energy consumption, and fallacious utopias ensure the perception that something useful will be done.
While utopias function as action drivers, fallacious utopias function as empty “action promises”. Fundamentalism, considered as an objective characteristic an individual needs to survive, requires “living” in a parallel world to avoid self-perception.
To build this parallel world individuals use their projection capacity to deposit on the environment what they need to perceive in order to feel comfortable.

How do fundamentalists build sects?
Sectarian behavior is the dominant characteristic of fundamentalism. Sects are not necessarily religious. There are all kinds of sects: religious, military, political and social sects.
To understand fundamentalism it is necessary to find our own fundamentalist behavior. The one who considers that never behaved as one should buy a mirror, because he is probably endangered by the question and is acting as one at the moment.

First step: The need of a parallel reality
The first step to build a sect is to understand that one needs to create a parallel reality and find people who have the need of the particular reality one is creating.

Second step: Finding the members
The second step is to identify the potential members of the sect. They must be “survivors”. Survivors are individuals who cannot adapt to an environment because of psychological, spiritual, organic or materialistic reasons.
Survivors are everywhere, beginning with marginal individuals and ending in the upper class. One has to know that a survivor is a person who acts like a “black hole” absorbing all the energy he can.
Survivors are “infinite” takers. Nothing ever suffices. To avoid the fear of death, which dominates survivors, they are keepers; they take just for the pleasure to have. Their fear of failure is so dominant that they gather everything, “just in case…”

Third step: Defining the sect model
There are many possible models. The success of a sect is given by the consistency of the sect model with the needs of its members.
The ontology of a sect describes the nature of sects. They all have in common one simple characteristic: FUNDAMENTALISM

Sects are fundamentalistic and fundamentalists always belong to a sect, including the individualistic ones.
Sects are functional to themselves and their members. They create a parallel world with parallel rules. This parallel rules make them powerful if they succeed in the “survivors-raising” process.

Sects require the management of four central concepts:

1) Power
2) A superior moral
3) An Education – indoctrination model
4) A benefit sharing model

Unicist ontology of decision making 1

To translate this post click on your flag in the right menu of the blog’s homepage.

The discovery of the unicist ontology of decision making opened the boundaries of “defensive” decision making, widening the possibilities and the probabilities of accurate decisions.

To be able to deal with the nature of decision making it is recommended to begin with the operational aspects of decision making.

The purpose of a decision making process is to be able to make decisions that are justified and grounded.

Decisions are produced because they are needed. When there is no need to decide the decisions become just a utopia the individual has in mind to deal with reality. That is why decisions exist when they are implemented. If not, they are just an alternative that will be considered when time for decision making comes.

Justifications put the decision making process into action. Justifications are the reasons why a decision is necessary. There are materialistic justifications, ethical justifications and personal justifications.

unicist ontology of decision making

Materialistic justifications are the “economic” objectives to be achieved through the decision making process. They are the active function of any justification process. The human decision process is put into action by materialistic needs.

Foundations are reasonable, understandable and provable arguments. Fallacy avoidance is ensured when foundations are included in a decision making process. That is why foundations are basic in decision making.

Foundations avoid decisions when the end justifies the means. Foundations establish the reasonable limits of what can be decided.

A decision making process ends when the decision has been implemented. Until the implementation has been done the decision is a hypothetical idea. To develop a decision process it is required to follow the natural taxonomy of decision making.

Unicist decision making in the field of complexity implies first exploring the possibilities and then defining the probabilities. By managing the ontology of decision making you will have a tool to secure the accuracy of results.

Three men see a block of marble.
One sees the beauty of the marble.
The other sees the value of the marble.
The sculptor sees the statue within the marble…

An analogy to guide reflection

Only those who are able to see
the solution within the problem
can deal with its nature…

Mesianic heroes need to think that the
solution comes from them.

Language shrinks… back to the caves? 12

To translate this post click on your flag in the right menu of the blog’s homepage.

The shrinking of the language and the sanctification of plain language drove to degradation of human thinking. When the language shrinks, the thinking shrinks. “C’est la même chose” (the same thing) describes a universal attitude to disregard the adequate use of language.

Growth implies the extension of the boundaries. Boundaries can only be extended if the language is able to deal with this extension. FYI, traditional Mandarin has around of 50,000 ideograms. They say ordinary people use 500!

Language can be defined as a system of communication and reasoning which makes use of representations, metaphors and grammar.  It is also the mask of a culture’s ethics.

The ethics underlying a culture is represented in the structure of the use of the language, in colloquial expressions, in the aphorisms of such language and in metaphors.

Languages and their use may or may not alter the perception and management of reality.

There are almost 7,000 living languages at present which can be grouped into families and subfamilies. Understanding the structure of language is what enables the understanding of its functionality.

Languages were created within a special context to refer to a specific reality. Languages naturally tend to avoid describing taboo elements of a culture and, when they do so, they refer to them in an elliptic, indirect or metaphorical way.

That is why a culture is implicit in its language. Language materializes culture through communication.

Language as the reasoning structure of humans

The ideas of an individual are structured using the reasoning framework of his language and using the semantic and the syntax that represent the language’s intrinsic logic.

From an ontological point of view there are two types of linguistic structures:
1) Backward-chaining structures, which approach reality, reasoning and communication from the end to the beginning.
2) Forward-chaining structures, which approach reality, reasoning and communication from the beginning to the end.

To have a non-fallacious perception of reality both approaches have to be used. Languages have different functional structures depending on their backward or forward orientation. An example of backward orientation is English. An example of forward orientation is French. Ideograms are a different approach to written language in which ideas are implicit in the language itself.
The syntax of a language defines the culture’s natural approach to reality.

In every language there is an implicit reasoning structure. Therefore there are languages with attributes for artistic expression, for hard-sciences, for soft-sciences, for dualistic philosophies, for integrative philosophies, and so on. The language in which assertions are expressed sustains the cultural preconceptions on their validity.

I invite you to be part of the group of people who accept to extend their language everyday in order to foster personal growth and social development.

PS: I apologize for my poor English, it is my “third” language.

Unicist Future Research – Ideologies are changing

To translate this post click on your flag in the right menu of the blog’s homepage.

Every structural crisis generates a downgrading of the social rules towards a higher level of materialism and individualism. This is natural and unavoidable. The crisis that began in 2008 is no exception to this rule. The ideologies are changing towards a new way to deal with work and with the future.

Unicist Ideological Models

Ideologies are sets of beliefs that use a specific technology to satisfy their interests, which in turn feed back into such beliefs.
Ideologies are a homeostatic element which ensures that the activity carried out by a social group will not deviate from its real purpose. In other words, ideology is what supports a culture’s archetype.
Ideologies are based on specific technologies and, (paradoxically) evolve when technologies change. Thus, the driver of change in ideologies is the change of technologies. Every qualitative change of a technology results in a modifications of an ideology.

If we look at the birth of ideologies such as Feudalism or Marxism, we will irrefutably confirm that they are the consequence of the leading technologies of the times.
Every observable situation is supported by an underlying ideology. Ideology is the homeostatic element of culture because it balances the ethics ruling the context.
There are absolute and relative ideologies. A social group achieves stability when its democratic spirit is so advanced that many different ideologies can co-exist.
If this happens, we are in the presence of “soft ideologies”, which adapt to others without losing their identity.
Absolute ideologies normally perceive relative ideologies as absolute and opposed.
As it establishes standards of acceptable behavior for its specific social environment, ideology is in itself a structure which integrates and shields its advocates.

New winds are blowing. The “Homus Autonomus” is prevailing.
