Our Philosophy

Integridad Foundation is based on a philosophy described by its founder, Martin Couell called Selffinity. This philosophy is the integration of discoveries from Mathematics, Quantum Physics, Biology, Theology, Philosophy, Psychology and Education to form a modern holistic world vision as basis for solving global problems of the 21st century. Selffinity brings ALL areas of knowledge into agreement. Within the Selffinity paradigm disagreement is senseless because all knowledge is one.

An essential part of Selffinity is that development can only attain sustainable peace through self-determination, and this only grows with fractal geometry like the tree of our logo. Therefore, it is not possible to build a community (sustainable), made of members with knowledge, values and customs that are disintegrated (incoherent and contradictory). Each person has free will and that is the only practical point to start. Reintegration is only permanent and sustainable at a collective level when we start with its parts – like achieving a great journey with many small steps. The parts will then define the whole in a natural, spontaneous way – that’s what self-determination is. It leads to synergy, prosperity, a true sense of identity and more meaning.

Working only at the macro (social or environmental) levels without attending the psychological source of the problem only weakens individuals’ abilities to learn vital skills like goal-setting, respect for and trust in self and others, and many other collaboration skills that are the true cause of poverty, not the lack of resources or intelligence. Working at the superficial level also blocks opportunities for democracy to grow which can only came from psychologically sound decision-making – not based on fear, ignorance, lies, distrust and desperation, as is the dominant mode for both the electoral process and governmental decision-making in Ecuador. This is at the root of Ecuador’s poverty. It is over-abundant with natural and human resources, but Ecuadorians live in a psychological labyrinth conditioned into their minds during childhood such that most people can’t even tell the difference between freedom and slavery, happiness and woe, respect and manipulation, loved-ones and enemies. Much less can they see the big picture to contemplate solutions due to a thousand daily problems apparently more urgent. For those whose homes do not provide a refuge from this paradigm, psychological disintegration occurs, meaning they make life decisions that provoke their own destruction. This pattern then manifests itself at social and environmental scales.

This integration is the basis for freedom and self-determination at personal, social and ecological levels. The integration of individuals is achieved most effectively through the formation and strengthening of spiritual bonds with the global organism, our natural environment, and that includes other people. The aim of this foundation is to facilitate the strengthening and diversification of these bonds to bring about a new world view, a new sense of identity and an end to our war against ourselves.

Understanding the Fractal geometry of the universe provides the psychological key that liberates us from our paradigmatic prison. In Mathematics, a fractal is a unit (like your body) that is roughly repeated to form a roughly similar body on a much bigger scale (humanity). Your body, for example, is made up of different kinds of cells like humanity’s different ethnic groups and organs like the different nations. The Bible describes each human being as a fractal of God when it says we are made in the image of God.

These are some links that will provide a liberating, deeper understanding of the inseparable, fractal nature of the Selffinity world view.
