The Unit of Conflict Resolution is an entity that has a beginning,
a middle, and an end, the continuity of one key action. It is
the unconscious thought process.
Formal Theory regards the Conflict Resolution Process as the
unconscious adjustment mechanism to stress.
We view the process
as an energetic entity, hence as a natural science phenomenon,
as an energetic transformation comparable but different from
the Simple Harmonic Motion, the oscillation of the pendulum,
in that the conflict energy upon the third oscillation gets
transformed into insight or growth and the oscillation is terminated.
This energetic process
is a six role-state sequence, the universal harmonic: The six
role states evolve along a roller coaster of formal or relational
intertransformations. Passivity is transformed to activity,
antagonism to cooperation, alienation to mutual respect. Then
the conflict is resolved.
can portray the process graphically as a function of time,
like a sine wave, and upon any simple moment as the sine
curve's cross-section; a system of concentric circles.
six role states: Stress response, anxiety, defense, and reversal
leading to a compromise.
Conflict Resolution Process is also a sequence of three formal
transformations: passivity is transformed to activity, antagonism
to cooperation, and alienation to mutual respect. Conflict is
defined formally as a state of passivity, antagonism, and alienation.
Resolution is defined formally as mastery, cooperation, and
2. The process
is clinically manifesting as a syndrome.
The Process is a
sequence of interrelated emotions and behaviors. We may classify
these syndromes according to how an individual resolves conflict.
These yeild four key alternative relational modalities which
are qualifiable and quantifiable. View

3. This phenomenon
is universal in all thought process, including your own.
The Unit is an unconscious
mechanism reflected in all samples of creativity; therefore
tapping one's creative process reveals the personal way of resolving
conflict. The Conflict Analysis Battery
is a psychological assessment instrument combining a relational
inventory with projective techniques, leading to identifying
the personal relational modality. The assessment process is
educational, diagnostic, and therapeutic.

4. The conflict
resolution process is the Unit moral order.
The Unit Process
is a scientific moral paradigm,
as it reflects the calculus of power management, its range of
formal interrelated solutions, and the optimal way of resolving
conflict, directed to mastery, cooperation and mutual respect.
This paradigm integrates religious moral paradigms as alternative
ways of resolving conflict and as an evolutional sequence of
increasingly abstract conceptualizations of the unconscious
process. The Formal Theoretical discovery makes us conscious
of the unconscious as the most abstract way of conceptualizing
morality. Individual emotional growth is characterized by the
search for wisdom, defined as the enlightened or informed way
of conceptualizing this moral order, and as managing one's way
of relating accordingly.
