The discovery of the unicist ontology of consciousness and the development of its ontogenetic map opened the possibilities to manage adaptive systems for everyone.
A Unicist Delphi Group has been developed to research why only 2% of the IT solutions have meaningful business architecture. The consensus achieved is that most of them are based on reverse engineering of existing solutions with operational improvements that are supposed to make the differentiation of the new solution. On the other hand, it has to be considered that most of the commercially successful IT solutions have an “exquisite” architecture.
Reverse engineering is extremely useful to be a starting point for any creation. But creation requires full awareness of the unified field of the solution that is being developed. That is why only the few true architects who are aware of the solution can design meaningful architecture.
The discovery of this ontology and its ontogenetic map is a breakthrough that makes the expansion of consciousness possible using the technologies of the real world going beyond the intuitive approach. It is a back to basic but with the inclusion of the real world technologies to achieve it.
It allows individuals to develop their level of consciousness expanding their possibilities to diagnose, build strategies and develop structural solutions in the real world.
This research demanded more than 35 years and included experiences with thousands of individuals, hundreds of organizations and more than 50 countries. These experiences dealt with the institutional and the collective unconscious and with cultural archetypes and included particularly the monitoring of the evolution of 22 individuals for more than 20 years.
Everyone can expand their consciousness if they have the responsibility to make things happen in the real world. They need to have the will to do so and the disposition to pay the prices to achieve it while empowering everyday actions.
Human intelligence expands through actions – this is well known and evident in the “stroke rehabilitation” processes. So does consciousness.
Consciousness expansion needs to be based on value adding actions that expand the added value of individuals while their conscious approach to reality evolves.
This is the pathway IT architects have to follow to design successful solutions.
NOTE: The Unicist Research Institute was the pioneer in complexity science research and became the major research organization in the world in the field of human adaptive systems. More than 4,000 unicist ontological researches were developed since 1976 until July 2011 in the field of individual, institutional and social evolution. They included the development of the unicist ontogenetic maps (DNA) of institutions.
