When we attend the reasons that move us towards the practice of strategy and achievements sought by the military world (the cradle of strategos) or by the world of the company (the cradle of managers), we are entering into a pragmatic issue to which abstract attributes and principles are added: the strategist is a specialized world observer, who seeks to modify the conditions in favor of objectives guided by such abstractions.
Notwithstanding, strategy is an essentially theoretical or abstract guide, we work on pragmatic codes for the generation of a benefit in the physical world which seeks a conquest, an achievement or a goal. This is why we speak of “materializing” an objective (never said better), with effects on concrete and pragmatic success indicators.
The Reality Paradox
It is in this state of paradox, where this particular observer should generate the world’s transcendent and immaterial representation, at mercy of the dual polarity and counter-physics of the universe. Within Dewey’s1 philosophical-pragmatic tradition, philosophy is not understood as a theoretical discipline, but “as a mean for the individual to give meaning to the world that surrounds him and convert such sense in activities of all kinds”, a pragmatic vision that is very much like the essence of the strategic education.
The concept of quantic memory has been developed upon the point of view of the quantum physics to describe the habit guidelines of permanent character in the subject (understood as the vital and mental tendency of an individual), or what in various spiritual traditions is called soul (quantum monad, in physical terms); or permanent character that explains the sublime energy that allows the beginning, development and growth of the being. According to Kurzweil’s (2009) perspective, it is not surprising that the modern man pursues singularity (fusion of soul and technology in its perspective), from a cascade development process: parallel to development process and biology-information technology integration. Our perspective is alike and our discipline’s performance history explains it: there is no doubt that strategos seeks a similar material-immaterial fusion bridge through his doings.
