MAT’s Omega Theory
Human motivations, understood as meaning human needs that once covered satisfy human beings, have been the subject of study for millennia. Since 4th century B.C., the study of human beings has not evolved much; rather it has advanced little by little, step by step, following the same line of thought that was first introduced by the pre-Socratics, followed by Socrates and later Plato and Aristotle. We are still in the midst of the Aristotelian era, with a reference model that offers an explanation of the human being based on the four dimensions postulated by the ancient Greeks: air, water, earth and fire, which applied to human beings represent spirit, soul, mind and body.
The most well-known and applied motivational theories to date: Maslow’s pyramid, or hierarchy of human needs, Herzberg’s two-factor theory, ERG theory (referring to Existence, Relatedness and Growth), the theories of Self-determination, Intrinsic motivation and the 16 basic desires as well as the more recent Temporal Motivation Theory) make the following assumptions:
- That human beings are so complex that a reductionist approach is needed to be able to put forward an acceptable theory of human motivations. This leads to the second assumption.
- There cannot be a universal theory regarding human motivations, so let’s make one that fits a determined era, civilisation, specific age-range, or even gender.
- Human motivations depend on the level of education, open-mindedness and type of environment of the person in question.
- It is necessary to construct a theory that explains our real, present and actual behaviour without questioning the reasons for said behaviour, or whether said behaviour is in human nature’s best interest.
For all of these reasons, the theories that have been in and gone out of fashion until now, do not contemplate the human being as a whole, failing to adopt a holistic approach, and instead compartmentalising our different skills, capabilities and desires based on what each theory intends to shed light on; therefore, there are theories that are very much focused on the world of work and professional development, and theories that aim to shed light on people’s mental health. Others in turn try to explain particular sociological behaviours.
MAT’s Omega Theory sheds new light on human motivations, and is a new discovery about human nature, made by Preciada Azancot, creator of MAT (the Metamodel of Analysis that Transforms). MAT reveals:
1.- That human beings have a structure of SEVEN highly specialised dimensions (and not four, as believed since the ancient Greeks) which allow us to release all our potential and to make our way in the world in all human facets of life:
- The first dimension allows us to place limits against the invasion of our own or others’ integrity so that life can flow safely and peacefully for all of us. It provides us with ethical safety. In MAT, it is called the Rector.
- The second dimension is responsible for the expressions of our minds and intelligence. It is an ultra-sophisticated computer: it saves, processes and analyses all sorts of data (sounds, creative ideas, instincts, beliefs, sensations, emotions). It gives us mental development. MAT calls it the Synthesiser.
- The third dimension helps to connect us to our external reality, to dismiss hallucinations, lies, and falsehoods, and to react against that reality that faces us in the here and now, through our six senses: sight, hearing, touch, taste, smell and sex. It brings us integral health and social justice. MAT calls it the Vitaliser.
- The fourth dimension allows us to access the process of transformation and creation: we can all be creators and grow without limits. This provides us with real transforming status. MAT refers to it as the Transformer.
- The fifth dimension helps us to find the point of convergence between people so that solidarity and collaboration allow us to live with shared and charitable goals and interests. It provides us with humanistic belonging. MAT calls it the Protector.
- The sixth dimension allows us to come into contact with our psychic reality, the personal subconscious, the collective subconscious and transcendence. It gives our life the certainty of purpose. It brings us liberating plenitude. MAT calls it the Orienter.
- The seventh dimension is what allows the species to evolve and must remain empty, free of egos, myths, archetypes, and other reductionist determinisms in order to fulfil its evolutionary function. MAT calls it the Centre.
2.- That each of the first six dimensions is also associated to a single specialised energy, which is one of the six innate authentic emotions:
- Fear, defined as the capacity to be alert to threats against our own or others’ integrity, to place limits on invasion and thus guarantee our safety.
- Sadness, defined as the sensitivity to the loss of wellbeing, to allow us to find better options and thus make the most of our intelligence. And this guarantees our development.
- Rage, defined as the energy to react against and denounce lies, aggressions, manipulations and violations, to connect us with the external reality of the here and now, clearing it from clichés and outdated values and therefore guaranteeing social justice.
- Pride, defined as the human capacity to create, grow and make grow, to allow us to access the process of creations and civilising growth, and thereby grant us real status.
- Love, defined as the art of creating a safe space where everyone can be everything they were born to be, finding the supportive and generous point of convergence with those we best complement and to whom we are most attuned and thereby guarantee supportive belonging.
- Joy, defined as the pleasure of flowing in peace and freedom, to put us into contact with our psychic reality and to find more truth and universal wisdom. And thereby guarantee our free spiritual plenitude which discovers truths.
3.- That each one of the six active dimensions is associated to a corresponding sense, which MAT reveals to be six, with sex being the sixth sense, associated to the function of plenitude and the emotion of joy. These are, in the same order and for the same purposes as set out above: touch, hearing, smell, taste, sight and sex. The senses are the antennae that emit and receive stimuli, so as to capture the stimulus and awaken the corresponding emotion, which nourishes its corresponding dimension.
4.- That the seventh dimension is the Centre which must be empty in order to guarantee Evolution. Managing to keep the Centre empty depends on the good functioning of the other six dimensions and is a pursuit that we ought to engage in all our lives, since evolution towards the conquest of more sophisticated dimensions and energies can only start from here. The major enemies of this task are our egos, ideologies, magical beliefs, myths, determinisms and archetypes.
In short, MAT discovers the innate and universal emotional and sensory engineering of the human being.
Before describing MAT’s Omega Theory, we would like to mention that:
- MAT’s Omega Theory is one of several Megastructures discovered by MAT’s creator.
- Megastructures are innate in all human beings and of fetal origin, as are MAT’s personality structure of seven dimensions and its emotional and sensory engineering.
- Each Megastructure is more powerful than the preceding ones (in this case, the Omega Theory is more powerful than the personality structure of seven basic dimensions of MAT).
- We present this discovery as a simple illustration of the importance of MAT’s discoveries.
Now, MAT’s Omega Theory demonstrates that there is an innate need associated to each human dimension, and that consequently the innate UNIVERSAL needs of the human being are seven, in hierarchical order, and that each one is the foundation of the next one. As follows:
1. The need for safety.
2. The need for development.
3. The need for justice.
4. The need for status (dignity).
5. The need for belonging.
6. The need for plenitude.
7. The need for evolution.
When we function properly, when all our six operational dimensions are nourished by their corresponding authentic emotions (i.e. emotions that are proportional in quality, duration, intensity and definition to the nature of the stimulus that provokes them) and are connected to each of their related senses, each dimension is capable of covering the corresponding need and this way we can:
a) Function integrally and harmoniously.
b) Keep all our mental faculties activated and updated.
c) Be energetic, full of health and vitality and fair values.
d) Grow genuinely and harmoniously, with stability, in a continuum of creation and civilising transformation.
e) Devote ourselves to good and create a safe space where everything that is good can blossom and become everything it was born to be.
f) Be happy, wise and fulfilled, thereby representing a gift to those around us and an enjoyment for ourselves.
g) Evolve for the benefit of all of Humanity.
And it doesn’t stop here, instead according to MAT’s Omega Theory, once human beings have covered their seven innate needs, human striving for greater wisdom will open up a world of infinite possibilities of growth to us. In fact, with the Omega Theory, we can pass from an average useful potency of 30% to a real operational potency of 5,000%. As the seventh need (for evolution) depends on having the six operational dimensions nourished by the corresponding specialised energies and senses and on leaving the structure of the centre empty, we will refer only to the six operational dimensions.
Following the same order and hierarchy, once we have covered the sixth need (for plenitude) we will access:
1. More safety, pointing towards harmony.
2. More development, pointing towards clarity.
3. More justice, pointing towards corporality.
4. More status and dignity, pointing towards metamorphosis.
5. More belonging, reaching towards the soul.
6. More plenitude, reaching towards the spirit.
Why does MAT’s Omega Theory represent an evolutionary leap in the theories on human motivations?
As part of MAT and being based on MAT’s fundamental discoveries, the Omega Theory is universal and objective: universal because it does not depend on eras or civilisations or geographical locations; and objective because anyone with the appropriate training will reach the same conclusions. MAT has been verified by its creator in more than 120,000 cases and has a successful track record of more than 25 years. It is also based on results that have made history and not on hypotheses or background theories.
In discovering the very essence of how human beings function, MAT represents an enormous qualitative and quantitative leap with regards to our understanding of the overall reality in which we live. And therefore, the understanding of human beings’ innate motivations arises naturally and organically, once we have assimilated the prior discoveries of the human being’s sensory and emotional engineering.
Below is a presentation of the Omega Theory by the creator of MAT, which is simply beautiful.
The Omega Theory presented by its creator:
MAT’S MOTIVATIONAL PYRAMID: THE OMEGA THEORY
PHASE 1: SAFETY: We don’t just need to cover our basic survival needs: a roof over our heads, food, clothing, health, etc., we also need safety in relation to ourselves and to our social surroundings: to know that our right to live and to be different is not questioned. In-depth knowledge of ourselves and of others’ differential features will give us access to the highest possible level of safety, because at the same time as boosting our level of confidence, it will allow us to select the best and to defend ourselves from harmful people. Building society on these foundations will prevent the outbreak of authentic fear in addition to its deviation into corporatist claims which not only limit development, but also fail to eliminate the real causes of distress. In this phase the necessary measures are taken to make sure that individuals do not allow themselves to be invaded or invade the integrity of others. MAT has a tool that classifies 37 common and universal patterns of typological behaviour where everyone can recognise themselves and classify others, with full respect for each other’s differences, so as to select those who best guarantee our safety.
Where there is real safety – because it is chosen by what we really are and because we surround ourselves with safe and diagnosed people, we can start to unfold our potential and transform it into action, and this is development.
PHASE 2: DEVELOPMENT: Once we are in possession of the logistical, material and human resources required for our activity, we need to be fully aware of our own and other’s creative potentials and to learn to motivate them. Human beings therefore need to locate their vocational zones of excellence and to discover others’. This knowledge must become effective through a system of communication which locates, motivates, extracts and protects creative capacity on a personal and group level. Construction of this second phase tends to eradicate the real causes of authentic sadness, since everything that could have flowered but withered, or that could have been known and was ignored, constitutes an objective loss. In this way, by making live potentials and real merits flourish, we eradicate fiefdoms and shabby corporatism. With MAT we can access a sensitive system of communication, which will help us to fluently speak seven different languages to access the human being’s different universal patterns of functioning.
What could we be lacking that is higher than the trained skill not to allow anything live or valuable in others or in ourselves to perish? The natural motivation now is to know how to raise the ceiling of what has become customary, verified and acted out, so as to become as strong as possible, without attacking anyone else’s rights, in conditions of fairness or equity. And that is justice.
PHASE 3: JUSTICE: In addition to the universal need for answers that acknowledge our right to freedom, equal opportunities and equal treatment, we need to see these as a reality and to channel them in our daily lives. For justice to be complete, it must pass from being an individual theoretical right to becoming a collective affair, and we call this: culture. In this phase, a collective organisational culture will be established which discovers and updates the collective identity through a system of values and rules that stand out for how they fit the group’s personality, for their fairness, and for observing the correct hierarchy. This prevents an outburst of justified collective rage and reinforces leadership based on the real talent and vocation of every member.
Because we are now reigned by a culture that guides us and that serves as the basis for measuring what is possible on the basis of our established values, and because said culture is incarnate in the behaviour of our leaders as references for all members of the organisation, our motivation can now move on to conquering the signs of identity of each individual’s deepest self, which is unique and different. And this confers dignity because it reaches beyond our circumstantial talent and vocation, and finds and applauds everyone’s unrepeatable uniqueness, and this is called status.
PHASE 4: STATUS: Aside from our natural right to collective and individual recognition for our exceptional merits, we all have a fundamental aspiration: not only not to be penalised with envy if we stand out above mediocrity, but also to be rewarded for it, through achieving the admiration of those around us, as well as receiving the intrinsic rewards of a symbolic and material nature that reflect the real status we deserve. In this fourth phase of construction, authentic status must be given to those exceptional individuals who exemplify the measure of what is humanly possible, and who for their mental, intellectual, spiritual or creative superiority offer their surroundings works of a transcendental quality at the service of increasing life and truth. The finality of this phase is to establish authentic personal and collective pride as well as to penalise envy, the discrediting of others and idolisation or personality cults. In other words to overcome the difference between a collective organisation with a vocation for mediocrity and a great organisation
When everyone knows and acknowledges who they genuinely are, and embarks on surpassing themselves ceaselessly, we can start to consider our desire to give the best of ourselves trustingly: to ourselves and to the genuine people around us. And this is called belonging.
PHASE 5: BELONGING: We need to feel fully accepted, which in this programme is guaranteed in the first phase and is demonstrated in practice in the following three phases, but also committed, irreplaceable and at the same time dispensable. We need to feel committed to a group that we know shares the same destiny, of complex and chosen finalities. The point of this fifth phase, which can only be achieved by diving into the depths of the typological personal and collective subconscious, is to arouse, deserve and preserve authentic love, of the kind that is born from our most secret, most profound, most universal and intimate signs of identity, which we all share as human beings. This helps to build a safe space, where each of us can recover and preserve faculties we believed were lost, a space where we can live in plenitude and choose to commit ourselves.
And when we have been allowed to delve into the most absolute and loving safety to the very roots of our memory, thereby recovering everything we thought was lost forever, it is returned to us multiplied because we have known how to be compassionate and to love better than we have been loved. And it is so that now, having become reconciled with ourselves and with others, we can inquire into the reason for our existence on earth, with the firm purpose of our complete self-realisation, which makes life the most marvellous and incomparable gift that we can dream of. And this is called plenitude.
PHASE 6: PLENITUDE: This last phase of construction is sustained by the five previous ones, all vitally necessary, all sequential in this very precise order, in which each emotion becomes the finality of the previous emotion and the basis for the subsequent emotion and thereby achieves exponential growth instead of the mathematical sum. It is a question here of liberation, instituting, as the human being’s right and most sacred duty, the pursuit of happiness through the conquest of our complete human stature, in a continual process of inner growth. In this phase, every member of the organisation discovers beyond their solidarity, profound similarities and finality a continuing line between the beings of yesterday and those of tomorrow. In discovering the profound spirituality of our structure, and recognising the usurpers of transcendence, which are collective as well as domestic and religious archetypes, we access a true liberation and the joy of certainty as we relieve ourselves of dead weights, and as we discover the true finality of creation: that of realising our vocation for joy, in peace. When we satisfy this need, the outcome is authentic joy: i.e. the joy that comes with the certainty of building a natural order that is accessible to all human beings who intimately embark on this venture, thereby achieving more truth and more authenticity.
And it is now, and only now, with a fulfilled sense of ‘what we are here for’, of our finality that cannot be strayed, having found with total certainty more truth, which is infinite, the consequence of which is to leave the Centre empty and free of myths, that we can access the ultimate purpose of authentic safety: the kind that only depends on ourselves, and this is called harmony.
And so begins the interminable and true path of human beings on earth, without impatience and without looking for shortcuts, since the purpose, already experienced along the way, is to bring heaven to the here and now for all creatures. And so, development on the basis of harmony will be clarity, justice will be corporality, status will be metamorphosis, belonging will be called soul and plenitude, spirit.
This is the BIO MANAGEMENT that the Omega Theory proposes.
Why investigate MAT’s Omega Theory?
Dr. Azancot has made these discoveries following many years of passionate research. She has verified them in more than 120,000 cases without finding any exception.
It is now the turn of the most innovative and open-minded to research the boundaries of our knowledge (what we tend to call Frontier Research), to take up the torch and to academically institutionalise Dr. Azancot’s discoveries. She considers her solitary research work to be concluded, with the satisfaction of never having betrayed her essence, with the satisfaction of having reached her conclusions without ever having harmed anyone, always helping others, and living life according to the natural laws which she herself discovered and which, generously, she reveals to us.
Pioneering experts in psychology, management, sociology, economy, medicine, philosophy, are now called to consecrate MAT academically, called to lead a new way of understanding the world, called to the highest prestige and unanimous gratitude of the best.
Due to the fundamental discoveries it makes and its innovative formulation, MAT’s Omega Theory requires 50 hours of learning from the hands of its creator to understand and apply it correctly.
