From Unidisciplinary Excellence to Holistic Multicultural Integrated Interdisciplinary Competence

Introduction

Our Planet Earth and civilisation are faced with problems that have reached such a level of complexity as to become unmanageable. Our civilisation cannot deal with global complexity.

Academics, experts, politicians and the citizens are getting completely out of their depth - why? - because they are all confronted with holistic multicultural integrated interdisciplinary challenges, something that their education has not prepared them for. A degree even when it is deserved - which is not always necessarily the case - does not automatically mean competence. Besides, demonstrated proficiency in a restricted branch, yet feeling completely out of your depth when it comes to dealing with the vast expanse of data that lies both before and within you in countless other fields, can you call this competence?  

"Competence" today needs to be redefined. Indeed, all the knowledge, philosophies, cultures, religions and technologies that have been accumulated since the beginning of mankind notwithstanding, the World System has turned our planet earth into a ticking time bomb. The astounding number of experts and researchers, research projects, PhD/Master theses, books, articles, papers, institutions and organisations worldwide have not prevented our civilisation from making a thorough mess of this world with no one knowing what to do!  

Education has created fragmented human beings, fragmented minds, fragmented mentalities, a fragmented world, fragmented competencies, artificially yet very convincingly disconnecting the interconnected. Education has provided - and is still providing unfortunately - fragmented unidisciplinary excellence bathing in a sea of holistic multicultural integrated interdisciplinary incompetence. The existing educational system is therefore not only not sufficiently powerful to enable us to deal with the complexities of the challenges we are faced with but is also - as structured - quite toxic for our planet's sustainability and civilisation.

So there is a problem. There is a problem in the very way we think, in the very way we process data. There is a need to look elsewhere. Where? The State of Mind (SoM) or Mindset. Our consciousness. The SoM (Mindset) which can be considered as one of the emergent properties of the Nutri-neuro-immuno-vasculo-endocrino-epigenetic-exposomic System (NNIVEE System), determines the way you process - collect, assimilate, understand, articulate together - data, whatever the data. So there is a need to optimise the SoM (Mindset) for complex avant-garde holistic multicultural integrated interdisciplinary challenge processing. This is the kind of training that is needed today. This is what we offer. 

Time to turn to the Education of Tomorrow (EdoT): Interface Education.

My conclusion following a three day colloquium at the Royal Belgian Academy of Sciences and Arts on “La Pensée Rationnelle et la Pensée Emotionnelle” (Rational and Emotional Thought) was that the Human Being’s inability to deal with the complexities of the challenges he/she was facing had profound consequences at multiple interconnected levels: personal, family, neighbourhood, local, regional, national, continental and world levels.

The challenge of today is therefore how to manage global holistic multicultural integrated interdisciplinary complexity at all these levels simultaneously. This is outside mainstream education competence.   

To my mind, the worldwide educational system - a formidable commercial and political enterprise - has perhaps become the greatest worldwide swindle of all times, smothering the citizens' full potential and leading them astray, in fact preventing them from adequately managing the holistic complexities of real everyday life. Interface Education shall in due course replace the existing educational system altogether. The whole degree system shall be revised because obsolete. If mainstream education does not prepare the education transition now, the latter shall have serious economic consequences for all schools and universities.  

An introduction to EdoT is our Master in Interfaces (MI). The full complete doctorate forms part of the Interface Assimilation Programme (IAP), a futuristic education and research project requiring highly advanced technology that shall be pursued at the International Interface Research Center (IIRC).

The IMNRC is the only institution in the world that delivers a Master in Interfaces (MI) just as the IIRC shall be the only institution to deliver the DI in its final form. It is noteworthy that the DI is already becoming increasingly recognised as the equivalent to a fully holistic integrated interdisciplinary qualification blending traditional degrees in medicine, science, law, arts and sports together. For example, a DI qualifies for a medical doctorate (MD); not the other way round.

Interfaces

We are basically interested in interfaces. An interface is what is between... and since interfaces are not only omnipresent but also the interconnecting principle that integrates the infinitesimally small with the infinitesimally large, understanding interfaces requires a fundamental state of mind (or mindset) change. This means unlearning and relearning, optimising the state of mind (or mindset) for complex holistic multicultural integrated interdisciplinary challenge processing, something that the existing education does not provide. This Interface Mindset has the potential to set up a universal algorithm using a common language - the interface - that elegantly articulates the multitude of fragmented parts of the “Universe” together. The Interface Paradigm elegantly illustrates the fundamental natural interconnectedness between all “things” - interfaces - in the Universe and how by creating an artificial yet convincing discontinuity, replacing it by a conceptual interconnectedness thereby confusing the orders of abstraction and losing him/herself in a conceptual maze, the Human Being is leading civilisation - and Planet Earth - to its doom. The interface is not only an extraordinarily powerful investigating tool, it is probably the key to understanding the Universe including therefore ourselves and the Life Sciences. Applications of Interfaces are multiple, ranging from fundamental research to new governance.

Master in Interfaces (M.I.)

The Master in Interfaces (MI) is a one year course that begins in October, January and April. In other words, there are three overlapping one year MI courses per year. This is possible because of the very nature of the MI course. The theoretical material is the same; only the order in which the student shall attend the "Interface Events" (please see below) shall change. Holistic thinking is not mainstream which is why an entrance examination and interview is required. Those who feel uncomfortable with the Admission Procedure shall be invited to ask for private tuition and reapply later. Applications are welcome but very competitive for lack of space. Selection of applicants is based on profile and integrated interdisciplinary potential. 

The MI includes five parts:    

1. An introduction to Interfaces.

2. An introduction to Interface Education.

3. An introduction to Nutrineuroimmunovasculoendocrinoepigenetics (NNIVEE)

4. The whole series of Interface Events.

Interface Events are atypical workshops questioning academic/personal certainties, introducing cross-disciplinary holistic thinking. Each workshop shall have one specific theme that shall then be cross-linked to topics that our formatted education and peers have conditioned us to consider as irrelevant. Possible themes include:

Music, dancing, sculpture, paintings, arts, ... i.e. all forms of "artistic expression"

Medicine, Science, ...

Literature, philosophy, religion, politics, ...

Gastronomy

Entrepreneurship and industry

Other

Each Interface Event is followed by cross-disciplinary discussions.

5. Final Exam: MI Thesis Presentation. 

 

Bachelor in Interfaces (B.I.)

The Bachelor in Interfaces (BI) is similar to one MI term but at a lower level. The course takes place in Autumn, Winter and Spring. There are no Entrance Examinations for the BI course. The BI course is very useful for the following reasons:

 

The BI leads to the full Master in Interfaces. There are two possibilities. If the student obtains her BI at the end of the Autumn term, he/she can register as a Full One Year Student for the Master in Interfaces that also began in the Autumn Term. In this case, the BI fees shall be deducted from the MI fees. If the student fails his/her entrance examination, he/she shall be welcome to register for the next Term Course only (in this case, Winter). .

  

The BI can serve as a good introduction to Interface Education.

Monthly Courses / Summer Courses

Monthly Courses are available all year round. Summer Courses can be organised on demand but with a minimum of ten participants. There are no Entrance Examinations for the Monthly/Summer Courses. These light courses offer an excellent general introduction to the more advanced Master in Interfaces that follows. Duration: one month.

Fees. 

Fees follow the existing EU and Non EU registration fees applied to private academic institutions. The IMNRC is a private institution that is nonetheless open to public/private partnerships. We would very much like to award scholarships and other payment facilities, but this depends on external funding from national and international institutional and government sources including the private sector (philanthropists, patrons, sponsors and donators). 


Fees for the Master in Interfaces Degree (MI) cover all standard tuition expenses including the Syllabus, Interface Events, Dinners and Receptions. (*)

Fees for the Bachelor in Interfaces Degree (BI) cover all standard tuition expenses including the Syllabus and Interface Events, Dinners and Receptions. (*) 

Fees for the Holiday Courses (one month) cover tuition expenses, syllabus and reception. (*)

(*): Online courses are less expensive because they do not include the Dinners and Receptions, and the traditional Interface Events are replaced by videos.
