Unicist Ontology


The Unicist Ontology of the Functionality of Words

Interpersonal written or spoken language requires the use of words which, according to their meaning, define the functionality of communication.

This description explains the functionality implicit in the use of words. The results of this research help individuals to diagnose reality based on the facts implicit in what is said.

Conceptually, based on their meaning, there are four different “types” of words:

1) Empty words: are those words that have no rational meaning in the context they are being used. They have multiple non structured meanings with no shareable purpose. Adjectives with no adverbial function are empty words.

2) Hollow words: are those words that are able to integrate in a unique sense the meanings given to them by emitters and receivers. In these words there is an implicit tacit purpose underlying.

3) Full words: are the words with a unique irrefutable meaning for those involved in a communication process. They are the solid container where hollow words fit in.

4) Ambiguous words: are the words having two different excluding meanings. One of the meanings is functional to the communication process and the other is dysfunctional.

A communication process needs fulfill the following steps:

  1. Ritual
  2. Management of the implicit conflict
  3. Stimulation of the activity
  4. Pastime action

The need to deal with the unicist ontogenetic intelligence of nature to influence adaptive systems

Unicist Ontogenetic Intelligence of NatureWhen dealing with adaptive / complex systems that have by definition open boundaries, individuals committed to find solutions need to understand the nature of the problem. And in order to understand the nature of a problem its ontology has to be understood.

The research on the unicist ontogenetic intelligence of nature (UOIN) was developed by Peter Belohlavek and started at the beginning of the 80’s. It was a step by step discovery based on the apprehension of the nature of social phenomena entering afterwards in the institutional and individual evolution. Its integration with biology and physics was the final stage that was achieved.

The ontogenetic intelligence is defined on one hand by a purpose and an action principle that puts the purpose into action sustaining its functionality and evolution or involution.  On the other hand, the same purpose is sustained by the energy conservation principle that complements the purpose to avoid it being changed by the action principle.

The Ontology of Ontology

Living beings naturally transfer their functionality to the environment where they act, depositing functions that have the living being’s same logical structure and that generate the existence of extrinsic concepts.
Extrinsic concepts have the same logical structure but they are not implicit in inanimate beings; they are deposited by the living beings they are functional to. This is the origin of the ontology that has been used for many years in philosophy and now also in the field of systemic sciences, complexity science and to deal with adaptive systems. This is what unicist ontology is about.

Peter Belohlavek found that systemic methodologies did not apply to the research of complex systems where there is a conjunction of objects and/or subsystems. Influencing the future meant understanding the nature of a reality in its essence and not from an analytic-rationalistic approach.

To “manage” the nature of businesses the understanding of the ontogenetic intelligence of nature is necessary. You are welcome to deal with the nature of reality in order to be able to develop diagnoses, scenarios, forecasts and strategies.  In the field of adaptive systems “playing by ear” produces paradoxical results.  The intuition has to be confirmed. This is just one case where the saying “hard training, easy combat” is confirmed.
