- Producer26/03/2017Be Transparent, or NotI was writing a buzz on senses when the idea of this buzz interrupted me and I found it so capturing that I decided to write this one first. The birth of the idea came from olive trees and oil. Olive tree needs sunlight to carry...
Comments27/03/2017 #24 Ali Anani#23 Thank you dear @Tausif Mundrawala for writing an absorbing comment. I loved your quote on people want to ear what they want to hear and being transparent may be futile.This is a great addition to the discussion. I hope you enjoyed the video and sensed its relevance to your shining comment on the buzz of dear @🐝 Fatima G. Williams26/03/2017 #23 Tausif MundrawalaI think it depends on the situation and the interpretation of both terms. Being transparent in a way where people wont find any fault , would be right on our part. But the possibility could be that we as a transparent person would be opined as opaque as we always were. This is a very interesting question. It brought to my mind the quote of Paulo Coelho, Don't waste your time with explanations: people only hear what they want to hear.' Sometimes being transparent would prove futile as there are people who would see it from the lens of opaqueness.
Thanks for imparting knowledge on olive oil and olive tree as I was not aware about this concept though it being my favorite fruit. Thank you for this buzz, Sir @Ali Anani26/03/2017 #20 Ali Anani#17 Excellent comment dear @Deb🐝 Lange. You concluding lines are beautiful. Olive tree has a tremendous values in all religions. Olive trees are sacred and olive oil has a tremendous value because of this. This is a main reason why I selected olive trees and olive oils.
We may render the transparent olive oil into a turbid one because of our ill acts. For olive oil to stay transparent it has to be "kept in the shade". So, sometimes keeping things in the shade protects them and keeps their purity.26/03/2017 #18 debasish majumdertransparent or opaque, it chiefly depend on observation, and light plays the key role to determine. in case of human, transparency is a metaphor and of course relative in nature. naturally, one may be transparent to one, while to another person, the same character appears as opaque. human have an inherent skill of adapting with the available situation and primarily focused on individual's concern. however, lovely post on transparency sir @Ali Anani! enjoyed read. thank you very much for the share.26/03/2017 #17 Deb🐝 LangeDear @Ali Anani yes transparency is an interesting topic and your reference to olive trees and sea salps." Israel was called "an olive tree, leafy and fair," because they shed light on all. Ancient Jewish Commentary on Jer. 11:16" Is shedding light the same as transparency?
I agree with @🐝 Fatima G. Williams and @Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman about the discernment as to how transparent to be in a particular context. Not being transparent does not necessarily mean we are lying, although some may lie or when not being transparent. Most people think when they are lying or not being open they have a veil over them, but, the conundrum is, observant people can see through the lie or cover up. So, perhaps we are transparent whether we want to be or not. It is just that some people play a dance of pretending to either not see what is blatantly obvious, or to exploit those who are authentically transparent. Thank heavens most people have good will, but, even those with good will still play the dance of politeness together.26/03/2017 #14 Chas ✌️ Wyatt"When the moon, after covering herself with darkness as in sorrow, at last throws off the garments of her widowhood, she does not at once expose herself impudently to the public gaze; but for a time remains veiled in a transparent cloud, till she gradually acquires courage to endure the looks and admiration of beholders." ~Augustus William Hare and Julius Charles Hare, "Guesses at Truth, by Two Brothers", 1827.26/03/2017 #12 Ali Anani#11 One thing for sure dear @Sara Jacobovici you impact me with is never to regret publishing a buzz. What you highlighted in your valuable comment was the motivation for me to write this buzz. I mean "The olive tree and the olive oil is so interesting. I am left with the inspiration to continue to delve into this". We are on the same wavelength. We may need transparency and sunlight, but our products may not. The olive tree needs sunlight, but olive oil should be kept away from it.
I enjoyed your reference to the movie Liar, Liar. May be I should consider writing a movie!!! The reference to @Ian Weinberg buzz couldn't be more timely.
I salute your appreciation of others and I an no exception.26/03/2017 #11 Sara JacoboviciThe energy of your creative thought processes can be felt across the net @Ali Anani. What a powerful example of the complexities of nature. The olive tree and the olive oil is so interesting. I am left with the inspiration to continue to delve into this. Thank you. As far as the connection with transparency, very thought provoking. It took me from the "ridiculous", the Jim Carrey, movie Liar, Liar, about a less than honest professional who ends up under a spell of saying only the truth for a 24 period. Obviously, telling the truth all the time was not portrayed as ideal. Does this mean we should lie, no, but that's what makes things complicated. To the "sublime", as in @Ian Weinberg's post, Buzzing with emotion, where he writes, "Unfortunately for us, the amygdala is in turn stimulated by the very chemicals that it secretes." Both internally and externally, we are challenged to be aware of and understand how to be transparent, not only in an appropriate way, but in a way in which, as you say, we don't expose ourselves to harm.26/03/2017 #10 Ali Anani#9 You are correct@Liesbeth Leysen, MSc. Brand Ambassador beBee, Inc. and I referred too to the importance of culture in the body of the buzz.26/03/2017 #9 Liesbeth Leysen, MSc. Brand Ambassador beBee, Inc.the key lies in the culture, @Ali Anani, what people perceive as acceptable.26/03/2017 #7 Franci🐝Eugenia HoffmanTransparency, yes but perhaps in not all situations. I feel there can be the right time and the right place for transparency. Also, transparency does not necessarily reveal all. We sometimes have to follow our instincts on whether or not we can believe what we see and hear. Ethics and values should be foremost in an organization and the transparency should be genuine in its entirety.
I worked for an organization that boasted about their transparency. Then they fired a few of those in the upper echelon positions due to poor performance and mismanagement. That's when it came to light that the transparency was controlled and not genuine.
So, yes transparency has different faces.26/03/2017 #6 Ali Anani#5 You always bring fresh thinking to the discussions and I am very pleased with your comment dear @🐝 Fatima G. Williams. SOmetimes you find people rushing to an idea without enough consideration. Transparency is one of those issues. WE are part of nature and nature tells us that transparency can be harmful. YOur example is a great one and it brings attention to the need to carefully instigate what we advocate.

Comments24/03/2017 #48 Ali Anani@Sara Jacobovici picks the threads of lines from a comment on this buzz and weaves a mind-boggling buzz that is surely worthy of your reading time.
Sara published the buzz this morning and titled "I Choose, Therefore I am."
https://www.bebee.com/producer/@sara-jacobovici/i-choose-therefore-i-am#c424/03/2017 #41 AnonymousWe have a lot to learn from nature, and I find wonderful you always find a way to point it out for others' enhancement.
A concept jumped into my mind when I was reading your post.
The key could be then, not only being aware that life moves in waves but as well, to harmonise our movements with them instead of going against them.
As usual, a mind provoking post.
My sword is yours.24/03/2017 #40 Laura DonnellyLike Harvey Lloyd, this line resonates with me - Life moves in waves and when we feel desperate and fall in the trough we should remember it is this trough that shall eventually push us up to the crest.

Comments24/03/2017 #45 Ali Anani#44 @Laura Mikolaitis- your comment is #44 and yet you bring fresh ideas and meaning to choices, pocket, decision-making and use of time. To make a decision is a choice and its timing is important. I enjoyed very much the idea of having our pockets full and the subsequence we get of our greatness. It is the time to realize eto humble ourselves so as not to cloud our choices. I may add here that these clouds aren't rainy and that they may not water new seeds of ideas.
I thank you for caring to write such a lovely comment.24/03/2017 #44 Laura MikolaitisExcellent post, @Ali Anani. The image of the sea turtle is particularly stunning and quite clearly is an excellent visual to help enhance the thoughts and ideas that you share in this article. Your point about toxic employees is well taken and is something that I have experienced during my career. But what stands out to me the most about this post is this: choice. Most of us are fortunate enough to have the ability to exercise the power of choice. From something as simple as deciding what to have for breakfast in the morning to something more intricate like making a life changing decision, we have the ability to choose. Good, bad or indifferent.
We all have pockets so your point about deciding whether or not to put our heads in clean pockets really resonates. Each day we find ourselves in a variety of environments and within that day are likely faced with varying degrees of challenges, people, and decisions to make. I believe that there will always be negative forces that will impede us if we choose to let them. But I also believe that we have the ability to discern between good choices and bad ones. Yet, I also realize that sometimes our pockets are full and that can cause us to feel overwhelmed and perhaps cloud our choices; which is why it is even more important to recognize the value of time and how we choose to expend it.24/03/2017 #43 Ali Anani#42 I recall your post dear @Aaron Skogen and it was a brilliant one besides introducing us. I value your comment greatly. I expanded on this buzz in my published buzz post to this one"
Put Your Head Deep in Your Pocket
https://www.bebee.com/producer/@ali-anani/put-your-head-deep-in-your-pocket24/03/2017 #42 Aaron SkogenI enjoyed this thought provoking post @Ali Anani. It reminded me (in Spirit) of a post a wrote last year called "Find the Gift" https://www.bebee.com/producer/@aaron-skogen/find-the-gift. I say in spirit, because my theme was different, as I was dealing with the loss of a co worker, yet very similar in the cleansing of which you write. There is an inherent cleansing of our "pockets", mental, physical and spiritual, found in nature, we only need to seek it. The beauty is, its easy to find!23/03/2017 #40 Jean L. Serio CPC, CeMA"Fertilizing ideas in unclean pockets simply doesn't work. When we set aside pockets of time to relax and kick the microbes out of the pockets we must ensure that we do this perfectly well" is excellent advice for us all, Ali. Plus I'm sure your comment " That is why I go to nature where I feel all negative ideas are poured out of my pockets and then the eggs of new ideas fill the clean pockets" resonates with many as well. It seems we are closer to nature than we realize. When we immerse ourselves in nature, it seemingly surrounds us providing the comforting atmosphere needed to encourage the release of emotional 'baggage' in order to regroup and stride forward. For me it's the beach. Thanks for another thoughtful share, Ali.23/03/2017 #39 Ali Anani#38 Thank you so much dear @Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman for your comment is a bridge of different comments. You related the comments of @Sara Jacobovici, mine, @🐝 Fatima G. Williams and then @CityVP 🐝 Manjit wonderfully. You actually showed us the need for change and how to go about it by doing so.
Trust me I friend when I joke that I don't ever mean to belittle people or being rude. I mean it as a way to enlighten or infatuate the reader.23/03/2017 #38 Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman#22 Ali, I don't find your joke at all rude, and I, like Sara, am infatuated with your statement "Between choice and action there seems to exist a chasm. We need to be able to build a bridge to cross the gap or be able to fly over it. Else, find another choice or path."
Now thinking about Fatima's comment "How did the noise enter our pockets"? Is it because we allowed it to or were we too naive to see there was a problem? And if we were too naive to see it, can we recognize the fact we need to build a bridge, etc.? The dirty pocket can then become a pocket of despair with no hope of getting out.
This brings me to CityVP's comment "Correcting thoughtlessness is like trying to make a hole in water with our finger, but engaging in thinking, that is what we are doing here - these are our pockets and they contain our future. The dirt of the past is not where my hands are, they are not in my pockets, but navigating to pockets of change ahead and here."
Engaging in thinking is key but there are those that need to be empowered to process thoughts and see the need for change. Your comment " Yes, we humans tend to magnify risk and then avoid it more than with the profit." IMO, this is an example of what can lead someone to the dirty pocket unknowingly.22/03/2017 #36 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#32 Where is the pocket of thinking reside but in our brain, nervous system and psychic connection. Hives are simply catalysts of ore, it is our pockets of thinking that extract its gold - it is why honey attracts us in the first place - because we see it as golden. The pockets of thinking are that gold, hives are the ore that hold that gold, and affinity is our principal tool of extraction.22/03/2017 #35 Ali Anani#34 If you only had written this comment dear @CityVP 🐝 Manjit before I responded to the very grand comment of @Sara Jacobovici just before your comment.
I am relieved. The surprising thing is while reading your comment the idea of pockets of thinking crossed my mind. You then surprised me by using it. I shouldn't be surprised because I know what value to expect from your comment.
Just a question crossed my mind- how do you compare or relate the idea of hives with pockets of thinking?22/03/2017 #34 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#30 What we still retain in our minds today will be in the digital pockets of tomorrow. The fundamental reality of our children's children is going to fundamentally change. We have all lived in the rear view window - that is not the immersive and extended life reality to come, in an immersive environment what we consider to be only internal will be external. The pockets that yesterday contained genetically modified corn will contend with pockets of ever increasing innovation and either we become someone's pocket of corn or we adjust to the virtual, spatial and synthetic pockets of tomorrow.
It is already happening but we are not present to it, because we think that the lineage of our past is the linear continuity of tomorrow. This is the transformation, it is why today we talking about fractals and butterfly effects - the pockets of thinking we engage here are a part of these pockets of change.
Correcting thoughtlessness is like trying to make a hole in water with our finger, but engaging in thinking, that is what we are doing here - these are our pockets and they contain our future. The dirt of the past is not where my hands are, they are not in my pockets, but navigating to pockets of change ahead and here.22/03/2017 #32 Ali Anani#31 I shall be open with you publicly dear @Sara Jacobovici. I expected more hot discussions (not views) on my last two buzzes for I believe they took serious effort from me to write. This wasn't the case as desired. But then comes a comment that send me flying over the chasm and this comment just did this. For long times I have been considering writing a buzz titled "The Wave-Based Strategies" in which I introduce a new way of thinking strategically. The wrote the buzz draft months ago. Each day I find an idea or example that reinforces my confidence in this strategy. However; my main reward is the discussions that I expect because this is a truly two-way learning method. A comment of the depth of yours may finally convince me to publish this natured-based strategy. Thank you Sara for the uplifting.22/03/2017 #31 Sara Jacobovici#22 "Between choice and action there seems to exist a chasm. We need to be able to build a bridge to cross the gap or be able to fly over it. Else, find another choice or path." I haven't stopped thinking about this @Ali Anani View more#22 "Between choice and action there seems to exist a chasm. We need to be able to build a bridge to cross the gap or be able to fly over it. Else, find another choice or path." I haven't stopped thinking about this @Ali Anani since I read it. I have always referred to Viktor Frankl's quote, "Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom." Your quote, Dr. Ali, branches out in a way that deserves attention. Thank you. Close22/03/2017 #30 Ali Anani#29 You open many of discussions my dear @CityVP 🐝 Manjit. I keep saying the more we know, the more wwe find how much more we need to know. The human body is the least understood system. If I write a review on what foods were claimed medically to be harmful and then reverse of finding I shall be myself surprised. The gut-brain relationship is another exemplary example of what I mean. Emotions, stress and relaxation who can claim how they change our body chemistry. The brain which has hundred of thousand of molecules we only about 300 of them. We make new tools to probe the human body only to be more bewildered by its complexity. I am afraid the children of our children will find that they need to pass the same message to their grandchildren. WE are living systems with many hidden secrets for us to uncover. We complicate things further by what you wrote elegantly "Our way of life, our education, our social associations are all that of primitive beings no matter how advanced our knowledge is - we are products of a marketed, conditioned and ignorantly bounded beliefs, each living in siloed boundaries". We need to clean our pocket of thinking.22/03/2017 #29 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#23 We engage in lifestyle activities that first damage the microbes that were instrumental to the creation of life and then our life choices empower the harmful microbes that are alien to human wellness.
It is only in recent years that the medical community has been forced to come out of its individual silo's and connect brain and gut health, because of a few whole system minded health professionals have began pointing out a relationship between gut microbes and the brain. Even today the world of medicine has an inadequate understanding of the gut-brain relationship. http://www.nature.com/news/the-tantalizing-links-between-gut-microbes-and-the-brain-1.18557
Once we know that to be human is to be a living system, we change our relationship from a social and tribal one to an intelligent and integrated one. Our children's children will come to know that world - and recognize us as the primitives we really are - the one's that at least have began finding our way out of the industrial and medieval caves. Our way of life, our education, our social associations are all that of primitive beings no matter how advanced our knowledge is - we are products of a marketed, conditioned and ignorantly bounded beliefs, each living in siloed boundaries.
We think out of our own pockets instead of creating pockets of humanity - a humanity that understands our partner organisms within us that make us whole. What is the single biggest problem with healthcare in the United States but pockets full of money - not pockets of humanity connecting with other pockets of humanity.

- Producer16/03/2017Ideas Are Like Dancing PendulumsMy previous buzz on "Common Sense that makes no sense" produced a huge array of comments of varying senses. Three comments by the brainy bees of CityVP Manjit, Harvey Lloyd and Deb Lang in the chronological order urged me to write this buzz....
Comments19/03/2017 #34 Steve BradyAli, this is so intriguing! The pendulum metaphor and it's extremes is often in my mind as I read the popular media. It will swing from a report on geo-political tensions in the South China Sea to a banal report on an equally banal television show. To me this is a sad madness, because so much of this is formative in the public psyche. I wrote a paper recently in the Restorative Justice sector , highlighting the need for receptivity to the energetic realm of life, the middle swing and interactive "noise" of "dancing pendulums" There is a veritable feast for thought here! Thank you Ali.18/03/2017 #33 Sara Jacobovici#30 You often incorporate layers of thoughts into one comment @Harvey Lloyd. Actually, @Ali Anani said it better when he wrote that he "can expand on each one of them in a buzz". Agreed! The one that stands out for me that I need to think more about is, "My word for the duality is cognitive dissonance." Thanks Harvey.18/03/2017 #31 Ali Anani#30 You do have a unique way f expressing your valuable points of view @Harvey Lloyd. I can expand on each one of them in a buzz. One example is your writing "When work is approached differently than home, in our existence, then at each we establish a value crisis. This presents us with either using coping mechanisms or the duality of existence". Love the way your expressed the conflicts we face and their complexity in such an elegant manner. Thank you for your kind words and I am not less moved by your thinking.18/03/2017 #30 Harvey Lloyd#27 @Anne Thornley-Brown thanks for the mention and your thoughts. Although the concepts of setting aside time for the collection of our frayed synapse is needed, the need for this seems to be borne in the separation of work and home. I personally struggle with this concept. In history existence (Work, Family,learning,Play) were a totality of our existence. Along came the 60's and we started the journey of separating home and work.
@Ali Anani has a way of exposing the chaos within our existence that is fascinating and thought provoking. Our families are what we face this chaos with and our jobs provide the fuel. They are interconnected in such a way that they should act in synchronicity (@Sara Jacobovici has elaborated on this concept) in lieu of the duality (Which Sara and Ali have both written and commented extensively)
My word for the duality is cognitive dissonance. When work is approached differently than home, in our existence, then at each we establish a value crisis. This presents us with either using coping mechanisms or the duality of existence.
Facing chaos with either of these modes in mind creates an even more challenging journey.18/03/2017 #29 Ali Anani#27 As soon as I finished my response to your first comment @Anne Thornley-Brown, I felt my head turning with surprise having finished reading your first comment. This in an incredibly comment with its "brainy power". I am bewildered by your comment not only because of its depth, but because it went deep in....guess what? By your writing "One of the implications is that organizations need to create quiet spaces of calm for reflection". I am truly too stunned to focus on writing this comment. I am currently preparing a new post with the initial title one of of the following titles. These are" Pockets of Time, Time Lens or Time Icw. ene theme that I plan to focus on is having pockets of time to reflect and why using a metaphor from nature. I should publish it within 48 hours...only if I recover from my "spinning state" I am in now because of your comment.
I am dedicating the buzz to you Anne. I feel we should have met long times ago.18/03/2017 #28 Ali Anani#26 Dear @Anne Thornley-Brown- it is early morning here. To wake up and read your comments filled me with joy with the simultaneity of feeling speechless. We started exchanging comments only recently, but I spotted your "intellectual Power". Therefore I feel extremely humbled by your compliments.
I hope the two professors would join the discussions.
I appreciate your words and I feel the burden to keep up with your expectations. I am too "will have to tie on my running shoes really tightly" as well. But challenges make us both better.18/03/2017 #27 Anne Thornley-BrownThere is so much of value here. I find the concepts of "the eye of the storm" and "my home is within me" shared by you, @Harvey Lloyd and @Deb🐝 Lange intriguing. Thes concepts are particularly relevant to fast-paced organizations that are undergoing constant change.
One of the implications is that organizations need to create quiet spaces of calm for reflection. These can be actual physical spaces within the office or envelopes of time that are earmarked as quiet time. The "quiet hour" should be an envelope of time for a couple of hours after lunch when employees book no meetings and phones go through to voice mail. This can be once a week, a couple of times a week or a literal hour every day after lunch. I think of it as an oasis, a place of calm and growth in the midst of turbulence. If you have ever visited the waterfall gardens at the Sheraton Centre Hotel in downtown Toronto, that is exactly what I envision both physically and metaphorically.
From these quiet spaces employees can pause, reflect, and emerge refreshed with ideas to resolve some of the challenges they are facing or pressing organizational issues. After all "oasis" is, first and foremost, a state of mind and being.
I will search for examples of organizations that are already doing this. If can think of examples, please share them.18/03/2017 #26 Anne Thornley-Brown@Ali Anani , I take my hat off to you. It is not often I run into individuals who have brain power that exceeds my own. I say that not to sound arrogant but just to reflect the reality that there are few deep thinkers. I will have to tie on my running shoes really tightly to even have a chance of keeping up with you.
I will re-read your post and follow your posts on an on-going basis and weigh in when I have something intelligent to add to the conversation. I know a brilliant PhD University Professor who is now retired. She is not on social media very often but I will try to entice her over here.
Dezsö Joseph Horváth, Dean of Schulich Business School at York University would also be someone who could participate in your discussions as an equal. I will also try to entice him to join us here.
Well done. I know where to come when I am looking for intellectual stimulation.17/03/2017 #25 Ali Anani#23 I agree dear @CityVP 🐝 Manjit and I am in agreement with your writing "but the chaotic pendulum for me represents the transformation possible in our own individual learning patterns - informed by emergent and unpredictable nature of future networks we need to be ready for and anticipate the arrival of". I didn't want to complicate the image. In fact, what kind of pendulum we add, what idea pendulum is attached to other idea pendulum(s)? I may write later a buzz on this topic.17/03/2017 #24 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#20 I would rather say that #19 represents chaotic pendulums, of which complexity thinking is one form of thinking, it is the paradoxical and contradictory forms of thinking that once assembled in one's own mind add new emergent pendulums. I actually prefer the image of the chaotic pendulum in the video - that represents a major challenge of learning.
To show dancing pendulums then this youtube video is more appropriate https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yVkdfJ9PkRQ but the thing I like about the chaotic pendulums is that this motion can only be demonstrated through a computer simulation - and thus exemplifies the arrival of network intelligence.
For the most part getting to a dancing pendulum pattern can describe what we discuss on existing dialogue exchanges at the group level, but the chaotic pendulum for me represents the transformation possible in our own individual learning patterns - that speak to the emergent and unpredictable nature of future networks we should be mindfully anticipating and preparing for.17/03/2017 #20 Ali Anani#19 It is complexity thinking what you wrote dear @CityVP 🐝 Manjit "Selling a dream means you demonstrate humanness. Without some semblance of humanity, nobody believes you. That is why you are on a higher level of thinking". Yes, it is at this level new thinking and ideas shall emerge.17/03/2017 #19 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#4 Dear Harvey, one of the big errors I made is assuming that systems thinking is self-evident and so I need to level set to see how people view chaos and appreciate their psychological reaction to chaos. The interesting thing for me is beyond embracing an integrated view of relationships and processes, there is also thinking.
With critical thinking noise is admonished, we want people to get to the point and make an argument, and it is the predominant way university education is predicated on. Yet when we step into exposure of creative thinking, then noise is welcomed, it is not a distraction but a source to build on, in creative thinking or improv, the weakest idea or the craziest notion is kept alive by the group and gets built on.
So it is that I can argue against noise using a critical thinking perspective and joyfully sing its praises using a creative thinking perspective. In both of these forms of thinking is where I next need to progress. To date I have focused predominantly on reflective thinking and it is going to be a challenge to integrate this triangulated approach to thinking personally for me - but it is that extra level thinking that adds one new pendulum and when I add two I have no idea how that chaotic pendulum is likely to swing - I can only knuckle down and continue on my learning journey and keep spelling out that I am engaging this as learning.17/03/2017 #18 Ali Anani#17 Dear @Sara Jacobovici- you wrote "You are strongly reminding us that the community may be virtual but the members are real". I have just sent a message to you and BEFORE reading this comment. I expressed exactly the same feelings. I thank you for your support and you have been a great partner in my writing journey.

Nice and flowing thoughts dear @debasish majumder. However; I find myself asking all self-organizing systems do that from within and without asking for permission to self-organize. They adapt to the environment and exchange energy with it but then self-organize. Are we only responding to the external conditions, or go a step further to self-organize? I feel this topic is worthy of further study.17/03/2017 #12 Fran 🐝 BrizzolisInteresting reflection ... But as Calderon de la Barca said in his famous work "life is dream":
The king dreams that he is king, and he lives
With this deceit commanding,
Disposing and governing;
And this applause, which receives
Borrowed, in the wind writes,
And in ashes it converts
That there are those who try to reign,
Seeing that he has to wake up
In the dream of death?
The rich man dreams of his wealth,
What more care he offers;
The poor man who suffers
Their misery and their poverty;
The one who begins to thrive dreams,
Dreams the one who tries and pretends,
The one who hurts and offends dreams,
And in the world, in conclusion,
All dream what they are,
Although no one understands it.
I dream that I am here
Of these prisons loaded,
And I dreamed that in another state
More flattering I saw myself.
What is life? A frenzy.
What is life? An illusion,
A shadow, a fiction,
And the greatest good is small:
That all life is dream,
And dreams, dreams are.

Comments18/03/2017 #123 Ali Anani#121 You aren't off the mark dear @David B. Grinberg. I read reports on the missing senses that we have, but are unable to locate. This is similar to the Periodic Table in which few elements with certain properties were anticipated well before their discovery.Yes, Euclidean thinking is outdated and now we have the fourth dimension of spacetime. I shall not be surprised if we have new senses to fill in some gaps.18/03/2017 #121 David B. GrinbergWow, belated kudos on yet another thought-provoking buzz, Ali -- in addition to all the exemplary comments below. A few thoughts, if I may:
1) Your example of Aristotle reminded me of Copernicus, who convinced people of his time that Earth was the center of the Universe and all things cosmic resolved around us. Other then being completely wrong from an astronomical perspective, this also smacked of narcissism. Of course, it's all always about the conventional "we" or "us" -- why is that? What sense makes humankind so arrogant?
2) I'm curious as to whether there may be extra senses for which the collective "we" and science are not yet fully aware? For example, is "Extra Sensory Perception" (ESP) a monolithic sense? Could there be other innate senses that are so commonplace that they are hidden in plain view, so to speak? I'm reminded of theoretical physicists who postulate about extra dimensions in space and time (per "String Theory" or "Parallel Universes") . While we apparently live in a 3-dimensional world, that's not true for every living creature or plant on the planet. Thus, could there be hidden senses similar to hidden dimensions, for which we will only become aware once humans reach a higher state of consciousness and/or intelligence?
Does this make any sense? Thank you for indulging me on this...17/03/2017 #119 Tausif Mundrawala#114 First of all I would apologize for replying you late as I was logging off from the office when I read your message and could only press the relevant tab. As far as casting a spell is concerned on a certain person than that poor one becomes numb and would not understand the meaning of the word sense. As far as the magic of love is concerned than definitely it creates a sense of belonging and caring.
Here I am contradicting my earlier statement in respect of a self aware person who can sense the damage happening to him/ her and to his/her family. I think this answer would suffice to your question, Sir.17/03/2017 #118 Deb 🐝 HelfrichDearest @Ali Anani, it was the case that I received a lot of ridicule from my father about not having common sense when I was a child. I hadn't thought about that particular scenario for quite some time, and the discussions within your buzz allowed me to think through this common occurrence in a way that brought a lot of closure to some lingering limiting beliefs.
One of the things that my uncommon sense always brought into focus for me, is the hidden deeper level of how synchronicity is not a rare or random emergence.
Logic was absolutely my least favorite area of philosophical inquiry, because the straight line march of thoughts represent a rather stilted reality in my opinion. Of course, there are areas of life and endeavor when this sort of thinking is de rigueur. However, when it comes to organic life - the mystery and awe of what it means to be alive from the tiniest single-cell organism to humans in all our flawed complexity - we need to set aside logic many times to fully comprehend the richness of being alive.
I wholeheartedly feel the power of the Jung quote insofar as swinging between right and wrong is a zero sum game. Judgement offers us nothing in many facets of life. The simple phrase that has unhinged me these last few weeks is 'judgement is punishment' lining those 3 words in that order has reverberated through my life in a profound manner.
Those humans occupied with right versus wrong are playing in the shallow end of the pool of life, because the deep work is in teasing, prying, or creating sense from nonsense. Learning from the currently inexplicable. Letting a profound concept emerge from the quiet, subtle influence of 3 words with infinite complexity.17/03/2017 #115 Yogesh Sukal@Ali Anani I was considering senses as logical as we can conceive and understand them knows logic behind.
It's magic of mind instead as referring as nonsense as it's mysterious and can't understood with our logic.
For example, dream with subconscious, even though it's not real but still we experience as like we do with our senses in reality.16/03/2017 #113 Ali Anani#110 I appreciate greatly your comment dear @🐝 Fatima G. Williams. You wrote " If I use reasoning filled with learning to define how to work my senses I benefit more than when I use logic to define how senses work". I called for the two to work together. I have to study your idea as I respect differences with you to the maximum degree. May be you find the expansion of this buzz in the buzz I have already published you may find in part more on how I think.16/03/2017 #112 Yogesh SukalThank you this thoughtful post which inspired to think.
In my opinion pendulum of mind oscillates between logic and magic.
Our conceivable 5 senses are logic as they work with their principles and we concieve the same in our dimensions but on other hand minds magic which power subconscious mind, imaginations which takes us beyonds our conceivable dimension

Senses are like the mixture in the air that forms the clouds. The right mix provides a pleasant rain and a rainbow And the wrong mixture causes a thunderstorm or even worse. If I use reasoning filled with learning to define how to work my senses I benefit more than when I use logic to define how senses work. Senses are a part of me and I wouldn't want nonsense messing around with it.
@CityVP 🐝 Manjit
I love and second Mr Manjit's comment here.
"The journey of focusing on extraordinary sense distances me from common sense - and the judgements that result from application of common sense." This is an excellent way to discern ourselves from people with common sense.
Our senses ( The way we see, think , speak ) are not common. Then why do we call it common sense. As Mr Manjit explains it's an extra-ordinary sense. It's Us.
Common sense was designed by educational institutions and the society for people who live like a herd of sheep trained to move in one direction.
Like an election that just happened with people using their common sense disregarding their unique senses which would have told them not to follow the flock.16/03/2017 #107 Ali Anani#105 WOW! I have just dropped a comment on your synchronicity buzz @Deb🐝 Lange and to find your comment here. Amazing synchronicity. More amazing is your comment. You wrote- like the eye of the storm.

Comments10/03/2017 #35 Lada 🏡 Prkic#30 Sorry for the belated reply, @Ali Anani. Topics like these intrigue me the most. As you said, the concept of honeycomb structures extends into different domains. The latest find in astronomy shows that universe has a structure which resembles a honeycomb - superclusters of galaxies linked together in a cosmic web.
In one of your comments you asked how cockroaches, human cell membranes, bees or even bamboo plant determine that the honeycomb structure is ideal for their growth.
We could ask a similar question about universe and the “forces” that attract galaxies into honeycomb pattern. Does the pattern simply represent the nature’s tendency to create the efficient hexagonal close-packing structures, such as a honeycomb? Is this “propensity” embedded into the very laws of nature?
Some questions are simply unanswerable.07/03/2017 #23 Ali Anani#22 Your answer is prompt dear @Tausif Mundrawala and reflects your good knowledge. My main question is how did cockroaches, human cell membranes, bees and cockroaches and other examples determined all that the honeycomb structure is ideal for their growth. Even plants such as bamboo have this structure. How did they all realize this fact? Not only that, but also did they reveal their secrets to each other? Did bamboo have a "silent communication" with bees, for example? These are the questions that prompted me to write this buzz dear Tausif.07/03/2017 #22 Tausif MundrawalaThis buzz is like uncoding the cipher. Anyways lets try unleashing this mystery. According to me this honeycomb like geometrical structure allows minimum usage of material and maximizing the strength. It allows the plant or trees to reach maximum height as the arranged geometrical structure allows them to do so without creating any hindrance to their growth. Their growth allows this structure to expand in an evenly manner where every grid works and allows another grid to be accommodated. Then it spreads accordingly and stretches the more they could.
I hope I answered your query, Sir @Ali Anani. Please let me know. Awaiting your reply.

Comments08/03/2017 #36 Ali Anani#35 Dear @🐝 Fatima G. Williams- the proof is in your words in action. Your words reflect your appreciation for others and appreciation for what you deem worthy. You now that you hold a great place in my mind. I am eagerly waiting for your elaboration for I know it shall add to my understandings. Blessed you are.06/03/2017 #35 🐝 Fatima G. Williams"Our words reveal our character. Our thoughts are expressed in words and these words reflect how we think, feel and act" What you say shows who you. Today everything we do online reflects our thoughts and actions. Your writing is not like the shooting star @Ali Anani but like the moon that shines bright and even visible in the day. The biggest star on beBee as you shine and thereby the stars around you shine from the reflection of your light and the knowledge you share.
This buzz not only talks about one's writing but It also makes me think that we cannot truly understand a person merely by his thoughts or actions. I will elaborate on this shortly. Thank you for yet another star worthy buzz.03/03/2017 #30 Mohammed A. JawadWithout social media we are without identities. ..we are nowhere. We are someone when we are hooked up to our chosen media platforms, our scribbling is like an open diary. We learn, we inspire others and it's all sharing and giving. If at all social media is disruptive, then with right engagement we can keep the excitement on the move.03/03/2017 #24 Tausif Mundrawala#13 All the intellectuals keep visiting the theories and ideas propounded by experts. Recently the great economist Kenneth Arrow passed away who was the youngest recipient of nobel prize for economics. Entire newspaper was rife with his theories and how an administrator used his theory to form a universal insurance scheme. You are an expert and will always remain so because you have always updated yourself with the latest developments and skills required to reach new heights. Keep inspiring us the way you do, Sir.03/03/2017 #21 Ali AnaniThe brainy @Sara Jacobovici wrote a great buzz in as inspired by this buzz and our exchange of comments. THis buzz is natural extension to this buzz and adds wealth of reasoning to the ideas of this buzz. I urge readers of this buzz to read Sara's as well and see for themselves how ideas emerge.
The buzz of Sara title is "What Does It Mean To Adapt?" and the link is:
https://www.bebee.com/producer/@sara-jacobovici/what-does-it-mean-to-adapt03/03/2017 #19 Ali Anani#10 The thoroughness of your comment dear @CityVP 🐝 Manjit has prompted our friend @Sara Jacobovici to share your comment as a stand alone buzz. She published a buzz titled "A stand alone comment"
I shared this buzz on three hives in appreciation of your comment Majit and in acknowledgement of Sara's picking pearls of comments and sharing them. There too I have already had some interesting discussions with Sara.03/03/2017 #18 Ali Anani#17 Absolutely correct you are dear @Sara Jacobovici. You wrote a lot about meaning and now you have attached meaning to adaptation (or vice versa) and a new meaning for meaning just emerged. I know what your next buzz shall be about, and if not then I have lost synchronicity with you. Goodness no.03/03/2017 #17 Sara Jacobovici#12 Your highlighting and expansion of the line, has inspired me (as always) @Ali Anani, to think; since language is our way of communicating meaning, than adaptation is linked with meaning. Adaptation can only be successful when we understand what it is we are adapting to.03/03/2017 #16 Ali Anani#10 I enjoyed reading your explicit and very sound comment my friend @CityVP 🐝 Manjit. I go all the way along with you.These lines of your comment are worthy "The fortunate thing is that there are observant people, either these people have understood the meaning of being scientific - and therefore are a part of a rare breed of people who can objectively observe, or these people have a poetic ability and the artist in them see's a different facet of human existence".
No matter what or how we live we still need to know and know better. In my comment to @Ivette K. Caballero I gave examples of one value of knowing more.
We need to be in harmony with ourselves. But also we need to understand the environment in which we live. If I have peace in my heart then I direct a my knowledge to better uses. It was Alfred Noble who changed his mind fro making explosives to establishing the prize of peace.
Is it wrong that we know a bit more? Or, our tendency to use what we know for bad intentions and practices?
Using knowledge to sell more for people isn't the same as knowing people better to deal with them better. However; the profoundness of your comment leaves me brewing with more ides to share soon.03/03/2017 #15 Ali Anani#9 Spot on dear @Ivette K. Caballero. We try to understand people and the tools to do that are varied with newest tools showing great creativity. I say to myself sometimes as we have fractal bodies; yet we are different and in many ways these differences aren't visible to the naked eye. For example, our eye prints, fingerprints and even tears may appear the same; it is only through scientific research that we made these differences availble for us to identify and solve criminal problems, . DNA is another example.
