Emulating nature using unicist objects to save energy

Print Friendly

Unicist ontology based technologies are materialized in objects that are installed within processes to produce optimized results.

Social Evolution StagesNature is organized by objects. It is these objects of nature that establish evolution’s point of reference.

The appearance of new species, the decline of others, change, evolution, and mutation of species are nothing but aspects of nature that may be approached today as of the Unicist Ontology of Evolution which is based on the discovery of the Ontogenetic Intelligence of Nature.

For this approach to be economic, possible and certain as far as results go, it is necessary to have the appropriate knowledge. This knowledge may be either diffuse or structured in objects. When it is diffuse, it is permanently being scrutinized. When it is structured, it establishes cognitive landmarks that change as new operational knowledge is gained.

Humans use mental “pre-built” structures to approach reality. Object driven thinking is human’s natural approach to reality. Human mind approaches reality using cognitive objects.

A cognitive object is a structure that contains knowledge, an action procedure, the groundings of such object, and the opinion on which it is based.

When the conceptual knowledge of a given reality is reached we can structure cognitive objects that remain throughout the times and evolve slowly. The Unicist Ontology of Evolution lays the necessary conceptual ground to construct stable and safe cognitive objects, which are required to forecast the reality whose knowledge they structure.

These cognitive objects allow the building of systemic, functional and operational objects to be installed within business processes. The cognitive objects also allow the adaptation process of objects to different non compatible environments.

The Unicist Ontology of Figurative Communication at Work

Print Friendly

The use of language in a communication requires accepting the fact that in order to develop work there is a need to achieve true consensus.

Although the ontology of language that has been researched and discovered is applicable to universal communications, we will be focusing here on the description of work driven activities and not pastime activities.

Words are naturally filtered before they are spoken or written. This filter can build the necessary fallacies to think that some specific communication is happening while in fact a different communication is occurring.

That is why communication can only be measured in the results produced by true consensus.

True consensus might imply knowing the structural differences between the parts that are communicating. In this case it allows knowing the consequences of the differences.

The use of figurative communication allows avoiding the dysfunctional filtering of communications, providing messages that drive naturally towards true consensus.

That is why people who cannot assume a responsibility of something cannot understand figurative communication.

The purpose of figurative communication is to achieve true consensus which means achieving a rational, emotional and conceptual consensus.

Achieving true consensus requires solving the conflicts which might be driven by interests, needs, beliefs, lack of knowledge, etc.

There are four types of figurative messages:

  1. Analogies
  2. Metaphors
  3. Enigmas
  4. Homologies

The Power of a Country’s Archetype is defined by its Work

Print Friendly

Work implies the capacity of displacing facts in nature in order to generate a usable added value for a society.


Therefore it is implicit that the fundamentals of work are consistent with the different levels of archetypes. We will describe in the following the fundamentals of work in the different archetypes:

Social Value of Influential Work

The purpose of work in elites of influential archetypes is to generate added value in their societies. To do so their active function is driven by the transforming of nature and the energy conservation function is the need to overcome resource scarcity.

If we see it at an operational level we can define that:

The maximal strategy of the elites is to transform nature driven by the energy focused on knowledge and the personal need that sustains their actions is the self-affirmation of their deeds.

The minimum strategy to overcome resource scarcity is driven by the energy of their capacity to produce and the personal need that sustains their actions is the capacity to manage the time to make things happen.

The conceptual economic approach allows integrating the cultural archetypes with the social, political and economic scenarios. We are promoting the establishment of Conceptual Economy Research Groups in the 51 countries in which we have researched the archetypes. The objective is to provide information on the economic possibilities for economic policy making.

What does Unicist Conceptual Economics Propose?

Print Friendly

Unicist Conceptual Economics proposes defining what is possible to be achieved given the present circumstances, defining the actions that need to be done to improve the future circumstances and then finally use this definition of possibilities as an input for the systemic approaches to define the operational actions within the limits that have been established.

Unicist mathematics allows defining the possibilities of actions and the probabilities of their success to achieve pre-established goals.

Fundamentals of Country Scenarios

The Unicist Logic of Country Scenarios

It is not easy to apprehend the concept that the economic scenarios are the drivers of the new utopias of a culture. The active function fosters utopias, the energy conservation function is based on cultural myths and the concepts of social scenarios are taboos.

At a conceptual level, there are three integrated scenarios that drive the evolution of a country: the social scenario, the economic scenario and the political scenario.

There are different levels of concepts and fundamentals that drive the evolution of countries.

It has to be considered that these fundamentals are based on the dominant lifestyles (which are consistent with the archetype), work attitudes and technologies.

Lifestyles define the boundaries of social scenarios, work attitudes define the boundaries of economic evolution and the technological scenarios define the evolution of ideologies.

Below the fundamentals of social, economic and political scenarios and the lifestyles, work attitudes and technologies there is a cultural archetype that establishes the core values of a culture.

The cultural archetype establishes the taboos that need to be respected, the utopias that need to be fostered and the myths that need to be followed in order to be an accepted member of the society.

Unicist Conceptual Economy – A Macro-Micro Approach

Print Friendly

The development of country and business scenarios required developing logical tools to infer the future to make forecasts reliable.

In this framework, the unicist conceptual approach to economy was necessary to integrate economic behavior with the political and social scenarios, on the one hand, and with the cultural archetype, on the other hand, in order to define economic future forecasts.

Unicist Conceptual EconomyAfter 20 years of application the “Unicist Conceptual Economy – A Macro-Micro Approach”, by Peter Belohlavek, will be launched to provide additional tools to avoid or deal with economic / financial crises.

Conceptual Economy as a name and idea already exists. If you are interested, you can find it at:

The Unicist Research Institute uses the conceptual approach for scenario building to define what is possible to be achieved, while the systemic economy allows defining the probabilities after a possibility is given.

Time has come to disseminate this knowledge because now the unicist complexity science approach is leading in its segment, and conceptual economy is a complex issue that provides true solutions.

On November 29, 2013 at 12:00 pm EST Peter Belohlavek will be lecturing on this subject as the first step of the presentation of the book.

The lecture is being promoted among members of the American Economic Association, the Chiefs of Economic Staffs of the Countries whose scenarios are being built (51 countries) and the members of our community.

Economic Sciences require a Complexity Science Approach

Print Friendly

The objective of the Unicist Approach to Complexity Sciences developed by Peter Belohlavek was to find a scientific approach to understand nature and provide a structure to emulate it when designing, building or managing complex adaptive systems.

Unicist Approach to Complexity SciencesBelohlavek developed the epistemological structure for complexity sciences, by developing the unicist ontological methodology for complex systems research, which substituted the systemic approach to research adaptive systems and was materialized in the unicist logical approach to deal with adaptiveness.

This is an excerpt comparing the different approaches that intended to deal with Complexity Sciences. It needs to be stated that the unicist approach developed the first integrated structure to manage complex adaptive systems.

Until the existence of this approach the methods of systemic sciences were used as a palliative to deal with complex adaptive behaviors.

The structure of the unicist approach to complexity sciences implies the integration of a unicist ontological approach, which defines the structure of the nature of a specific reality with the use of unicist objects that allow emulating the organization of nature to predict the behavior of complex adaptive systems, design them, built them or manage them.

In the following pages, you will have access to a synthetic comparison of the Unicist Approach with the different approaches based on their nature and functionality:

  1. Complex Adaptive Systems
  2. Ontologies
  3. Objects

Complexity Science Research

The unicist theory expanded the frontiers of sciences making the scientific approach to complex adaptive systems possible without needing to use arbitrary palliatives to transform complex systems into systemic systems in order to be able to research them.

Complexity Science ResearchParadoxically, this is a breakthrough and a back to basics. On the one hand, it is a breakthrough because it changed the paradigms of scientific research. On the other hand, it is a back to basics because it drives sciences to deal with the nature of reality.

The unicist logical approach opened the possibilities of managing complexity sciences using a pragmatic, structured and functionalist approach.

The unicist approach to complexity is based on the research of the unicist ontological structure of a complex adaptive system which regulates its evolution. This is based on emulating the structure of the unicist ontogenetic intelligence of nature considering that every functional aspect of reality has a unique unicist ontological structure.

The approach to ontological structures of reality requires going beyond the dualistic thinking approach and being able to use the double dialectical logic to approach complex adaptive systems.

The research in complexity science needs to have its own format for its presentation that has a structural difference with the papers for systemic sciences (abstract, introduction, materials and methods, discussion, literature).


The unicist approach to complexity sciences is a pragmatic, structural and functionalist approach.

This approach establishes the framework for the research on complexity sciences but also for the unicist logical approach that uses the conclusion of the researches in their application in the field of complex adaptive systems.

Superior Education to manage the adaptive aspects of businesses

Print Friendly

The unicist logical approach allowed managing the adaptive aspects of businesses by using unicist logical tools and business objects. This approach provides cross-cultural solutions based on the researches made at The Unicist Research Institute. To access the basics that sustain unicist education please access:

Complex adaptive aspects of businesses need to be learned in their dynamics which implies that they need to be learned making real applications based on the knowledge of their dynamic structure.

This is analogous to medical residencies in teaching hospitals where graduated physicians learn to manage a specialty. It has to be considered that medicine is a paradigmatic case of complexity:

The Future Scenario: Static vs. Dynamic Learning Processes

Unicist EducationThe superior education in business management provided an empirical operational and analytical framework for business management that upgraded professionalism in the XXth century.

The static empirical model that permitted administrating businesses provided the knowledge that allowed developing the necessary information technology that became redundant with the superior educational programs. Simultaneously, the explosive R&D capacity to release new products shortened their lifecycle.

These two situations, the redundancy of operational an analytical knowledge and the acceleration of business processes, made the static empirical approach to business become functional to business operation but dysfunctional to business management.

This scenario opened new demands for superior education in businesses that are still unsatisfied.

The Next Step: “teaching hospitals” in the business field

Business ResidenciesUnicist education is based on learning processes that are analogous to “teaching hospitals” based on real complex problem solving. The unicist educational model is a postgraduate model that deals with the learning of logical tools and business objects. You can access a white paper at:

It requires having the necessary technical-analytical knowledge learned in graduate or undergraduate programs.

It requires the learning of:

1)      The building of future scenarios

2)      Diagnosing businesses

3)      Developing Unicist Strategies

4)      Building Business Architectures

The difference between the Unicist Education and the Professional Education can be synthesized in:


Unicist Education

Professional Education

Educational Framework Teaching Hospital / Clinics Workshops / Seminars / Courses
Educational Model Complex Problem Solving Systemic Problem Solving
Learning Approach Action-Reflection-Action Theory-Practice
Problem Solving Approach Results Driven Tasks Driven
Future Forecasting Logical Inferences / Delphi Groups Projections / Delphi Groups
Knowledge Logical & Empirical Approach Empirical Approach
Type of Tools Unicist Logical Tools Operational-analytical tools
Business Planning Strategic approach Analytic approach
Dominant type of Analysis Fundamental Analysis Technical Analysis
Risk Management Ambiguity Certainty
Business Processes Adaptive Systems Operational Systems

Educational Alternatives

We propose you compare the differences between unicist education and professional education by accessing the information on the unicist logical approach and the approaches to cross-cultural businesses of four major Global MBAs (2 in the USA and 2 in the EU).

We recommend beginning with the social communication of the different proposals.

1) Harvard Business School

2) Stanford Graduate School of Business

3) London Business School

4) Insead – The Business School for the World

5) Unicist Corporate University – The Unicist Research Institute

What is the Unicist Logical Approach to Businesses?

Learn about the Unicist Logical Approach at: http://www.unicist.net/clipboard 

The unicist logical approach manages the adaptive aspects of business as unified fields based on the knowledge of their ontogenetic maps.


Unicist Active Business Library

The knowledge of the ontogenetic map of a business, its market and the context allowed managing the fundamentals that define the possibilities of business actions.

The future scenario building became possible based on the knowledge of the ontology of evolution and the ontogenetic maps of a business and its restricted and wide contexts.

This knowledge allowed defining synergic maximal strategies, to expand beyond the boundaries of a business, and minimum strategies to work within them.

Adaptive business processes became reliable based on the use of ontology based business objects. The use of objects upgraded the role of human work in business.

The integration of fundamental analysis and technical analysis allowed building reliable business knowledge, transforming uncertainty into risk and integrating the knowledge of the possibilities of success with its probabilities.

All the solutions, business objects, technologies and knowledge provided by The Unicist Research Institute are based on the unicist logical approach and generate significant energy saving effects.

Teaching Hospitals in Business

The Unicist Corporate University (UCU) is the academic arm of The Unicist Research Institute that is organized as a Teaching Hospital that develops business residencies. It is based on technologies that allow building cross-cultural strategies: http://www.unicist.org/sdp.shtml#cc

The UCU is now expanding worldwide installing In-company Corporate Universities to provide the unicist technologies to deal with the adaptive aspects of businesses.

Dealing with economics requires using a pragmatic approach

Print Friendly

Economic Sciences is a paradigmatic field of complex adaptive behavior. The unicist approach to economics integrates pragmatism, structuralism and functionalism. This first post is about the pragmatic aspects of the unicist approach. If you want to find the roots of pragmatism, we recommend reading the works of Charles Sanders Peirce, William James and John Dewey.

Framework of the Unicist ApproachThe unicist approach to complexity science was developed in order to provide a methodology that is specific to deal with complex adaptive systems in order to avoid the extension of the use of methodologies that correspond to the field of researching systemic aspects of reality.

This drove towards the integration of a pragmatic, structural and functionalist approach to research in the field of complexity sciences that is the framework used in all the researches done at The Unicist Research Institute.


The research in the field of complex adaptive systems does not allow artificial experiments because they change the conjunction of elements that integrate them.

Therefore a pragmatic approach that integrates practice and theory is needed.

This implies that complexity science requires the integration of reliable knowledge (theory) with experiencing (practice) in order to define the functionality of a complex adaptive system.

The Unicist pragmatism is based on the integration of theory and practice based on the knowledge of the ontogenetic map of the specific aspects of reality which include their fundamentals.

Unicist pragmatism is based on the unicist reflection process (action-reflection-action) and the use of destructive tests to establish the limits of the theoretical knowledge and non destructive tests to put pragmatism into action.

If you are not aware of the meaning of the word pragmatic, we strongly recommend researching the concept “pragmatism”.
