The Use of Gravitational Objects to Make Things Happen

Social gravitational objects are adaptive processes that have been organized as autonomous entities to provide an authoritative context to sustain specific actions.

Gravitational ObjectsThey define the role of the wide context that influences actions or objects and do not belong to the system they are influencing.

Examples of social gravitational objects are: religious commandments, constitutions of countries, cultures, institutions, works of artists, scientific works, etc.

On the one hand, gravitational objects need to foster freedom in order to be bearable. This implies that they need to open possibilities of actions for those who are being influenced. Gravitational objects that intend to force predefined behaviors are unbearable and generate opposition.

On the other hand, these gravitational objects have to provide a security framework for the actions that are being influenced. This framework provides a conceptual action guide to take advantage of the possibilities that are being fostered.

In order to work, structural actions need to be based on gravitational objects. Conjunctural actions can be done without them but leave no trace in the environment. Their consequences vanish as soon as the actions were finished.

Double Dialectical Logic and the Power of Collaboration

Complementation is the basic attitude for collaborative actions. The final goal of collaboration is to build a complementation between the participating parts. Complementation is the starting point and the final goal of any collaborative process.

ComplementationThe active function of a collaborative context is given its functionality which means the utility the process is able to provide, the aesthetics that completes the needs of the participants and the reliability of the actions of those who collaborate.

Reliability is at the same time the catalyst of collaboration because it is what allows achieving the synergy that is needed to produce functional results.

At a personal level, a collaborative context requires establishing an ethical, an ideological and an emotional link among the participants.

The ethical link deals with the functionality of the actions, the ideological link implies sharing an adequate technology within the shared beliefs of the members and the emotional link provides an adequate human context to the collaboration.

When these conditions are given, then complementation will allow the generation of value in a context of “focusing” on results while using an integrative logic that allows integrating the parts based on their conjunction.

Collaboration requires necessarily the integration of different types of people in order to build the necessary synergy to produce results.

Collaborative contexts require the existing of true complementation where both anti-complementation and pseudo-complementation need to be excluded. In biological terms, we can say that there is no room for commensals nor for parasites.

Four types of roles were identified in collaboration contexts:

  • Artisans
  • Risk Managers
  • Builders
  • Creators

Collaboration implies managing an adaptive process that is necessarily based on the conjunction “and” avoiding the disjunction “or”. Learn more about it at:

The Unicist Standard makes the emulation of nature reliable

The Unicist Logical Approach is a breakthrough that made the emulation of nature in businesses possible. It allowed accelerating business processes and save energy.

The Unicist Standard was developed to sustain the Unicist Logical Approach and the building of Unicist Business Objects. Unicist Business Objects are adaptive systems that are designed to produce a predefined result in a process.

The Unicist Standard is necessary to manage the unicist logical approach in a meaningful way to produce results. The Unicist Standard defines the benchmarks for future scenario building, diagnostics, strategy and architecture that need to be followed.

For those who are entering in the unicist approach we strongly recommend taking into account that the following conditions need to be given:

The person has to be fully responsible for producing measurable results. Functionality has to prevail over subjectivity.

The person needs to be a spontaneous complementation builder to foster synergy and growth. https://www.unicist.net/management/wp-content/uploads/2013/02/nature-of-complementation-en.pdf

The person needs to have decided to use the double dialectical logic to be able to emulate in mind the structure of nature to diagnose, exceeding a dualistic rationalist approach.
https://www.unicist.net/management/wp-content/uploads/2013/02/wp_unicist_thinking_en.pdf

The person needs to have rationally apprehended the Unicist Theory of Evolution in order to be able to understand the dynamics and evolution of the adaptive system where the results need to be produced.

Why use the Unicist Double Dialectical Logic?

The unicist double dialectical logic uses the dualistic operation of neurons to build a mental emulation of the structure of nature that allows dealing with the adaptive aspects of reality, managing the integration of their double dialectical behavior. Unicist thinking is the name given to the process that allows building the double dialectical logic.

Unicist thinking allows emulating in mind the structure of adaptive aspects of reality in order to manage them. It provides the necessary operating system to manage adaptive systems to expand the boundaries of businesses and infer future scenarios in order to adapt to them.

It is necessary to diagnose, build strategies and design business architectures. It provides the structure to understand the fundamentals of businesses and integrate the fundamental knowledge with the technical analytical knowledge to make decisions.

The unicist reflection process: action-reflection-action is the technology to be used to transform dualistic logical approaches into unicist double dialectical approaches in order to define complex adaptive systems. This technology allows starting with the use of disjunctions “OR” and ending with the use of conjunctions “AND”.

It is an upgrade that is up to you…

Japanese Park: The Starting Point of the Unicist Approach

The Japanese Park is a technology to define the starting point of any personal or  organizational process. The name Japanese Park has been adopted honoring the Japanese ancient tradition that was used to define how to build a park.

The basic information that is needed to move from one place to another is the coordinates of the destiny and of the starting point. The knowledge of this information allows defining if the “journey” is possible.

The unicist approach to business defines the objective to be achieved and the starting point in an independent way before matching them to diagnose if the business process is possible.

The Japanese Park technology is used to define the starting point of a new work process.

The design of a new work process, using the unicist approach, implies establishing the basic context to make the work process happen spontaneously.

It consists in launching the work process without defining how to do it and letting people do the work in their natural way.

What is being evaluated in a Japanese Park is:

  1. How people organize their activity?
  2. What is the added value they spontaneously provide and to whom?
  3. How people do their work?

A sound conceptual knowledge of the business and the knowledge of its ontogenetic map are necessary to interpret the output of a Japanese Park to begin with the design of the business processes.

The Unicist Approach to Efficacy in Work Processes

The Unicist Approach defines that efficacy is the capacity of individuals to produce results in a responsible way. This implies that efficacy requires awareness of what one is doing.

The unicist ontogenetic map defines that the integration of the levels of efficiency, efficacy and automation produce the effectiveness in work processes.

To change effectiveness in processes it is necessary to manage the unique manageable sub-concept which is efficacy.

Human activity needs to be managed also if effectiveness needs to be improved within the boundaries of an existing system. That is why the change of effectiveness needs to be introduced managing the active function.

The driver to change efficiency is also a human activity. That is why efficacy has to be the driver.

Changing the efficiency level may require a significant modification of the automation level of an activity. This generates a mutation of the work process.

The fundamentals of efficacy can by defined as:

The identification with the role: Efficacy requires that individuals are identified with the role they are fulfilling when they work. The role can be defined as the social identity of the individual.

The identification with the task: Efficacy requires having the necessary competencies to develop a task that allows enjoying the work.

Knowledge: Knowledge implies having the necessary “knowledge objects” to do the work stored in the long term memory.

The efficacy of individuals can be calculated using the mathematics of the Unicist Logic:

Unicist Efficacy = I(R) * I(T) * K

Individuals need to assume the responsibility of working in the field of their efficacy which defines the limits of the possibilities for assuming responsibilities to produce results.

Evolution implies developing the active function, while the energy conservation function tends to compensate the changes or not.

When the purpose is significantly changed, which is the case of automation, a mutation of work stations is being produced.

In the industrial fields, efficiency and efficacy can be managed using the unicist fishbone which has been developed, based on the Ishikawa model, integrating all the elements that are part of a unicist ontological structure.

Unicist Workstation Design

The specific WSD requires defining the efficacy that needs to be available, the efficiency of the system and the necessary level of automation according to the characteristics of the adaptive aspects of a job.

Processes can be fully automated when they require no adaptive behavior. Efficacy becomes critical when adaptive behavior is necessary.

Efficiency can grow up to a certain level when defining jobs. When a certain level is surpassed, it produces paradoxical results because it alienates workers. Job enrichment is a way to compensate an extreme level of efficiency at work.

Efficacy varies from person to person based in their natural characteristics and the schooling system they were subject to. Operational thinkers have their efficacy level at a high programmed level that uses disambiguated language and operational know how to work.

People who developed their conceptual thinking are able to deal with ambiguous environments with a low level of programming. Low level of programming implies that individuals need to behave in an adaptive way depending on the responses of the environment.

People who seek for security are expecting a highly programmed environment. Those who seek for freedom, having assumed the responsibility for producing results, expect a low programmed job.

Unicist Management: Why go Beyond Dualism?

The neural functionality is dualistic. Neurons are “on” or “off”. Dualistic Dialectics vs. Double Dialectics is the battle between the disjunction “OR” and the conjunction “AND”.

The dualistic dialectics of Hegel and Marx transformed this dualistic approach into a social myth that provided an oversimplified perception of reality and a way to influence it.

Both dialectics are fallacious because they do not emulate the structure of nature.

The dualistic thinking necessarily fosters a non-adaptive behavior that is driven by idealistic, ideological, materialistic, spiritual or egocentric needs. Dualism is necessary when personal needs prevail over functional adaptation.

The consequence of dualistic thinking is that people believe in a dialectical behavior. Adaptation becomes impossible when using dualistic thinking.

But dualistic dialectics has proven to be fallacious to understand and influence evolution. The unicist double dialectical logic allowed using the dualism of neural functionality but emulating the functionality of nature.

In the short run, the benefit of using dualistic dialectics is that it transforms humans in judges of reality instead of responsible participants.

You decide, it is up to you…

What are Unicist Business Objects?

The use of business objects structures the timing and synchronicity of business processes. It also provides the necessary acceleration to achieve the needed critical mass and the required speed to adapt to the environment.

Unicist Business Objects are proven solutions based on the use of the unicist ontological algorithms included in the Unicist Standard that can be installed in processes in order to save energy and increase quality to produce results.

Objects are productive units (adaptive systems) that have a concept, an added value, the necessary quality assurance and a methodology to ensure the minimum strategy.

Types of Business Objects

There are five business objects which are: the drivers, the entropy inhibitors, the inhibitors, the catalysts and the gravitational objects.

The first three ones belong to the process of a system while the catalysts are part of the restricted context and the gravitational objects belong to the wide context of a system.

Objects can be designed integrating these three functions as part of their functionality or they can exist as three different objects to provide the driving, inhibiting and entropy inhibiting functions in a process.

Catalysts and gravitational objects are not part of the system. If one integrates them into the system, these objects do not work as such and destroy the system’s functionality.

The use of business objects requires individuals who understand the business processes in order to use the objects and replace them when their functionality has been exceeded.

Synthetically:

Driving Objects
To drive processes
Catalyzing Objects
To accelerate processes
Entropy Inhibiting Objects
To inhibit the entropy of business processes
Inhibiting Objects
To inhibit dysfunctional events in a business
Gravitational Objects
To influence the results of processes

The Paradox of the Fallacious Myths of Institutions

The unicist approach to institutions defines that the fallacious myths of institutions sustain the “spirit de corps” of their organizations. They are absolutely necessary although they hinder improvement.

The identification of the fallacious myths allows defining the possibilities to influence them.

The unicist role of the institutions in an environment defines the type of fallacious myths they need to avoid disgregation. There are basically four basic roles of an institution:

The Number 1:

These are the institutions that set the standards in their field of action.

The Number 2 – The innovator:

They are institutions that propose a new standard defying the Nr. 1

The Differentiated Participant:

They are a sort of Nr. 3. These institutions are followers of the Nr. 1.

Non Differentiated Participant:

These institutions are marginal in the market and their major problem is survival.

About Institutional Fallacious Myths

Fallacious myths of the Innovator – The myth of the value added:

Innovation doesn’t imply necessarily the generation of added value. Innovators generate naturally the fallacious myth of added value to justify their innovation.

The fallacious myths are based on the potential benefit of an innovation if the user had the same values of the innovator.

Fallacious myths of the Nr. 1 – The myths of ethics:

They generate fallacious myths of ethics to sustain their dominant position and the imposition of their standards. This ethics has a strong moral basement.

This fallacious myth is sustained by a strong feeling of impunity based on their dominating role.

Fallacious myths of the Differentiated Participant – The myth of self-sufficiency:

Differentiated participants are followers; therefore they do not invest in many of the fields the Nr. 1 invests, such as: image building, training, R&D, etc.

They need to believe that they are self-sufficient and that investments are unnecessary.

They generate the fallacious myths of self-sufficiency when the environment demands the investments they are not willing to make.

The fallacious myth of Non Differentiated Participants – The myth of justification:

These are organizations based on survivors’ ethics. They need to justify their surviving actions when they are not able to deal with the ethics of a market. Justifications define the need of actions. The fallacious myth of justification sustains the ethics of non differentiated participants’ actions.

Conclusion

Human fallacious behavior always includes individual, institutional and social fallacies. These fallacies are integrated in order to avoid that individuals face unbearable realities in a given environment.
