Unfortunately, things do not need to be true to influence the environment. They just need to be believed. Marx’s dialectics is an example of how a hypothetical evolutionary approach is believed and changes the world without being true.
Modern dialectics began based on an idealistic and materialistic-voluntaristic approach to reality.
This dialectics provides an explanation of the evolution of human idealism and human materialism.
It is the way of natural dualistic thinking. It produces rationalistic conclusions of reality that sound incredibly simple and make the producer feel extremely powerful in the sense that with a “push” it is possible to change an existing reality.
Dialectics as defined by Hegel is contradictory with the concept of complex systems. Complex systems are integrated based on the conjunction “and”, and their evolution includes the complementation between the apparent opposites.
This dialectical thinking of Hegel, who considers the synthesis as a result of the opposition between a thesis and an antithesis, permits the construction of parallel realities based on the disintegration of the real world and the construction of a world where the limitless evolution of ideas drives towards an ideal. Hegel builds an apparent upgrading fallacy.
Marx perceives the fallacy implicit in Hegel’s approach, but he cannot get rid of his dualistic approach to reality and his need to build a better future that only depends on the promotion of an adequate antithesis.
But his materialistic approach hindered him to accept an ethic of added value in the real world.
He built a dialectics based on the definition that thesis is given by an existent myth and the antithesis is a utopia that will change the myth creating a new environment.
This implied considering that the utopia is a response to the existing myth.
Marxist dialectics implicitly generated a paradoxical effect because it generated the need of materialistic absolute ideologies to sustain it.
The Unicist Approach to Evolution
The Unicist Logic builds a double dialectics that demonstrates that when there is a thesis, an antithesis is a natural step that drives evolution, but the thesis is sustained by a homeostasis that tries to hinder a change of the thesis by covering its implicit weaknesses.
The unicist double dialectics is based on the mental emulation of the ontogenetic intelligence of nature that allows a valid emulation of adaptive environments. Its application to human adaptive systems made the emulation of individual, institutional and social solutions possible.
