Comments26/11/2016 #269 Phil Friedman#268 Robert, I take your point that "There comes a point when too much temerity becomes a turnoff—not that it isn't given with the best of intentions."
Which is why --- personally being on "the cusp" of becoming crusty -- I now try to refrain from post critical comments on the posts of others, unless I know from prior experience that they welcome frank and open discussion. And I reserve my preaching and gadflying to my own posts, which can be ignored by anyone who is not interested in the kinds of discussions that my writing sometimes generates. Seems like a reasonable live and let live policy, right?
Well, apparently not. For there are those who express discomfort with many of the things I publish in my own posts -- such as this one -- and say clearly that my work is "too negative". Ironically, a number of these are the same people who seem to love the 1,001 posts floating around about how valuable it is to "get out of your comfort zone".
I agree with you when you imply, if not exactly say that most people are on social media to preen and strut. Certainly, that is the ethos that is intentionally propagated on LinkedIn, where one is told ad nauseum that the primary goal is to be seen and make oneself heard in the service of building one's "personal brand". The question that continues in my mind, however, is whether the goal is to "be on social media" or rather to use social media as a bridge to worldwide conversations. Cheers!26/11/2016 #268 Robert CormackI don't disagree, Phil. We want to stay "on point" and hope others do as well. What raises concerns (or it certainly did on WriterBeat) were the number of crusty old men who wanted to let loose with invective. Being close the a "crusty old man" myself, I've tended to temper my comments, hoping people don't see me jumping from the cusp to the other side. There comes a point when too much temerity becomes a turnoff—not that it isn't given with the best of intentions. People don't tend to join social media sites to be scolded or lectured or told they're idiots. That's what I've found, anyway, and why I left WriteBeat. #26725/11/2016 #267 Phil Friedman#266 Robert Cormack > "... there's nothing wrong with civility but, I agree, it shouldn't be at the expense of expression and what someone believes. I want to hear different viewpoints, and I've left far more social media sites because nobody was saying anything (except compliments)..."
Thank you, Robert, for reading and joining the conversation. And welcome to a pretty small and exclusive group of writers and other users here on beBee who are willing to say publicly that they value a genuine and open exchange of ideas, views, and opinions over an insipid river of meaningless, knee-jerk compliments, patting, and stroking.
For the record, I personally do not mind sardonic comments on my posts or remarks, provided only that they are on-point and have some argumentative substance. For example, I don't mind someone telling me that I have my head where the sun never shines, as long as they back that up with reasons for disagreeing with what I'm saying. But I rarely go that far in my preaching about the value of dissent and disagreement because most people on social media recoil from anything other than the mildest of language... and instead always preface my exhortations to lively discussion with the "civility" qualifier. Thank you for reading and commenting. Cheers!25/11/2016 #266 Robert CormackIf I can add something here, Phil. Last year about this time, WriterBeat asked if they could post one of my pieces. I agreed and was invited to share comments with their growing number of contributors. Thinking I was joining a community of like-minded writers and journalists, I found myself instead viciously attacked and called a "bozo" (also a knuckle dragger). I fought tooth and nail until a very, very intelligent woman (formerly with the state department), told me: "Don't worry, they're just letting off steam." Seems WriterBeat had a whole corral ready to call anyone a "bozo," which turned into a daily donnybrook of some truly weird and sometimes litigious comments. Funnily enough, after eight months of that, I didn't mind the name-calling so much (and I love to fight), but the essence of the comments kept degenerating (Bible thumpers are the worst). I think in answer to your post, Phil, there's nothing wrong with civility but, I agree, it shouldn't be at the expense of expression and what someone believes. I want to hear different viewpoints, and I've left far more social media sites because nobody was saying anything (except compliments). At the same time, I don't want to be abusive (or abused) either unless I deserve it (and I often do). If people have a problem with tone, it's like pornography, ignore it. Don't say it can't exist. There's room for everybody.30/10/2016 #264 Phil Friedman#262 Karen, I respect everyone's right to speak.

Close27/10/2016 #250 Phil Friedman#249 Peter, let me explain it by pointing to a piece I just published, "Vending Machines Are People Too" ( https://www.bebee.com/producer/@friedman-phil/vending-machines-are-people-too View more#249 Peter, let me explain it by pointing to a piece I just published, "Vending Machines Are People Too" ( https://www.bebee.com/producer/@friedman-phil/vending-machines-are-people-too ) and a reply to some who commented about having "positive energy":
"Thank you, Maria, for reading and commenting. My German is not good enough to answer in detail, but in English this is what I have to reply: I agree that it is a good thing to have positive energy in life. However, to me, positive energy is having the strength to face the negatives of life and keep going in the drive to make things better. Most of the talk on social media about "positive energy" strikes me as insipid and self-delusional. Being brave does not involve never knowing fear, but rather feeling fear yet doing what needs done in spite of that fear. So too, being positive does not involve mindlessly denying the existence of negatives in life, but rather recognizing fully those negatives, yet striving always to make things better. Cheers!"
One does not need to delude oneself about mankind being awesome or even mostly good. One only needs to recognize that amidst the shit, there are worthwhile gems that simply need to be found and washed clean. Thinking that all of mankind and life is nasty and mean, is just as unrealistic as la-de-da-ing through it all, refusing to recognize any of the negatives. Both the unregenerate pessimist AND the Pollyanna-ish optimist are separated off from reality. Cheers! Close26/10/2016 #248 Phil Friedman#247 Peter, thank you for reading and commenting, and for sharing your thoughts with us. I believe that our concerns and deliberations may prove too mundane for your sensitivities, and recommend, perhaps, some appropriately uplifting reading to improve your mood --- maybe, the collected works of Martin Heidegger.24/10/2016 #246 Claire 🐝 Cardwell#240 Peter van Doorn - I agree with @Phil Friedman - you only have to look at creative achievements in architecture, art, music and science to see how individuality is expressed. Yes innovation is sometimes grounded on someone else's work, but you can clearly see individuals working to improve their surroundings and learn more about the universe - either singly or as part of teams.23/10/2016 #244 Phil Friedman#242 Thank you for reading and joining the conversation, Peter. It is your prerogative to believe you have "no need to think about my [your] life." I don't remember suggesting that there is such a need, but okay, I can live with your judgement on that.
My main point here has been that I do not see value in aspiring to be "like-minded" and that affinity networking can, and should be based on commonality of interests, not on thinking like, and having the same values as the rest of one's affinity group.
Not sure that we disagree about that. But if we do, perhaps we can just agree to disagree. My best to you. Cheers!23/10/2016 #241 Phil Friedman#236 Sorry, Peter, but with all due respect, saying that "Even those who do not want to belong, belong to the collective of those who do not want to belong" is simply not true. For the a collective based on like-mindendness is essentially quite different from a group of people who do not want to be part of such a collective, but who share no other common qualities, save that election. The paradigm Borg Collective in science fiction --- which by the way is best compared to either an ant colony or a bee hive, both of which border on being a multi-part UNIFIED organism, rather than a multiplicity of organisms --- moves and acts with a single mind. That is its distiguishing characteristic. But a group of non-like-minded individuals acting not in concern but independently of one another is an entirely different matter. And it does not follow that, because we can identify a group of non-collective members, that such members of that group are themselves members of a collective. Thanks for reading and commenting, and for contributing to the conversation.

Comments18/11/2016 #112 Max🐝 J. CarterI dig the concepts @Milos Djkic. I am curious if you have studied digital to analog conversions?
I think of the binary expression of digital as the fractal beginning with the use of oct and hex to expand it into the analog. Behind the fractal design is where the chaos factor is. It's behind the fractal so to speak. I feel it is that chaos factor that is in the binary that on occasion switches it up at random to change the design that eludes us.
Who or what is making the random decision that changes the fractal design?
I tend to lean toward gyre theory which says simply stated that at the heart of the smallest subatomic particle is a singularity that works on a vortex. My theory that I can not prove or disprove s that there is a consciousness within the singularity.
It's the only thing that explains the chaos factor with anything that makes sense. for me.

Comments13/09/2016 #37 Henri Galvão#36 haha you're welcome!
you're right about many musicians being great storytellers. Bob Dylan, for one, always had the journalists wondering from the very beginning of his career.
I don't know much about these computer games, but I'm sure it's really serious work :-D13/09/2016 #36 Aurorasa Sima#35 Two great comments on one day? I feel blessed @Henri Galvão (:
That is an awesome point. I never thought about musicians. You got me thinking and now I think there are many that are gifted storytellers. I don´t know much about the White Stripes (just the song they played in Clubs forever). Some make their album a story, some their life show or a single song.
I´m "analyzing" computer games at the moment. Telltale and The Talos Principle (hey, that´s serious work!)13/09/2016 #35 Henri GalvãoPretty cool text, and very enriching comments as well! This is something whose relevance has been more and more evident for musicians.
In fact, a band that is often cited as an example of great storytellers were the Stripes Whites. Not only because they had their whole thing about only using three colors (black, white and red), but also because the relationship between Jack and Meg White was always ambiguous (were they siblings, lovers, or ex-lovers?), and it just captured everyone's attention even more.
But, of course, their music was also great!03/09/2016 #32 Anonymous#28 You have shown a perfect example, @Aurorasa Sima with this video.
It leads me to another thought.
Successful storytelling has always a base of basic and positive human values.
All humans have the need of catharsis, according to wikipedia, "the purification and purgation of emotions—especially pity and fear—through art or any extreme change in emotion that results in renewal and restoration"
This is what the video you shared is transmitting and its main message.
Product is just an add-on to the story.03/09/2016 #30 Ali AnaniI just want to share a little of "our story" you dear @David Navarro López and I. We have created our own story. Over the last three years we had enormous exchange of thoughts, of life experiences, of our love life and of our philosophy in life. We often agreed, but sometimes differed in style and due respect. There is a story to tell because it shows what started as small comments led to a formidable friendship. I am confident that readers of this comment if they would read any buzz by David, if they haven't done till now, will share my admiration of his mind and heart.03/09/2016 #28 Aurorasa Sima#22 I love your comment, @David Navarro López. It´s so thoughtful and knowledgeable. The car industry is great at corporate storytelling. Apple too. Many corporations. Our focus is to help salespeople develop social competence. Raise their EQ. We use story as a medium for sales people to connect with buyers and invite them to open up and share what´s on their minds. As important is story tending, the ability of the salesperson to fully understand the client´s story.03/09/2016 #27 Anonymous#26 Dear @Ali Anani this will be very useful to bees that did not know you before of your Bebee era. When I told you that I treasure your wisdom and friendship, I really meant it, so this was not necessary for me, as I know all of them by heart. And you have proven with your enormous amount of posts and presentations that metaphors and visual story telling are the most powerful way to transmit things. As example of your very smashing way to expose complex things on storytelling, which would be impossible to transmit so perfectly other ways, our bees community should not miss these ones, among others
http://www.slideshare.net/hudali15/phenomena-race-strategy-model03/09/2016 #22 Anonymous@Aurorasa Sima you have exposed very accurately a matter on which @Ali Anani and myself digged sometime ago, and that is visual storytelling. I completely agree that "Stories inspire our fantasy and enable us to create visions. We see pictures. We become part of the story. We abstract, we learn, we create." "Cavemen scratched and painted their life stories into the walls so that others could learn from them."
The oldest painting found is dated 50.000 years ago, while the oldest writing found is dated just 5.000 years ago, so that means that our brain developement, our culture, our knowledge, our communication skills have been growing by means of visual story telling.
Customers nowadays, as you mention, are not concerned about features, but about how they feel if purchasing the product involved.
In order to produce this feeling, the storyteller needs to engage his audience, involving them into the story, not boring about features they can find for themselves, and planting the seed of "What if I would have this product?"
The automotive industry, which traditionally are the bigger investors in marketing, know that, and tell us stories on how beatifully would we feel driving their cars.
Concernig to all this, I am allowing myself to suggest you having a look at

We have recently been exploring how music can help with movement disorders and find that it can override neurological signals of pain and rigidity. But it does matter that the music 'means' something to the person. When I pick the music that I like, it does nothing for my partner. When he selects it, his entire physiological state can change.

The only difference is the the migraine image ripples though the same colours in sequence, durtng which I can see (in pulses) the beating of my heart.27/08/2016 #63 Ali Anani#62 You comment is flowing with the right questions dear sister @Irene Hackett. I loved this "that place where the one who 'sees' that which is not - arises from a much deeper level of awareness that may be far more 'real' than what the mind calls reality". I shall put it in this way: our brains are limited by reality; our imagination aren't limited because they see beyond reality. With imagination we see what doesn't exist and then our brains try to turn imaginations into reality.25/08/2016 #60 Sara JacoboviciI regret posting my comment before I had the opportunity to read all the comments from your readers @Ali Anani. I look forward to the time I will be able to do so as your Buzzes always produce the best discussions. In the meantime I offer this "out of the comment box" comment. https://www.bebee.com/producer/@sara-jacobovici/exploring-imaginative-ideas
- Producer10/07/2016Why I decided to sell up everything to travel the world with my childWhen I announced that I was selling up everything I owned to travel the world with my 16-year-old son, people laughed at me. "You'll be back sooner than you know it" was a retort I heard often. But I was determined to live my dream and help my son...

Life is all about challenges, it's how you handle them that matters most. I think it's important to welcome change and not be afraid of stepping outside your comfort zone because that is always where true growth begins. You've got to feel the fear and do it anyway, lol ;)12/07/2016 #45 Jean L. Serio, CPC, CMCThanks Amour, for sharing such a personal story. I admire you for your determination to move forward in a way you knew, in your heart, was best for your son. It's a truly inspirational story we can all learn from.. And as Aaron Skogen states in his comment "Experience, is indeed, life's best school."12/07/2016 #44 Margaret Aranda, MD, PhDFantastic mothering! YOU knew what to do because you realized this was your one son, and your one life with him growing up for a fraction of his impressionable life. And you gave him all that you could give, no regrets. Hat's off to you, Mother! Hat's off to you!11/07/2016 #41 Pascal DerrienThat's one hell of a story but I should not be surprised you did it for your son providing your first name :-)
One thing only I can relate too is people telling you not to do it those types are everywhere a long time ago before the mobile phone era I left Paris to cross the Canada over a two months with limited cash at age 19 the number of people who tried to persuade me to do otherwise was impressive, I would get kill I would run out of money I did not know the country they heard so and so etc... I left and I had a ball I slept on beaches, sordid hostels etc,, but a few years later I crossed Eastern Europe when the wall fell and cross the US too morale is I don't really care what people say and YOU DID RIGHT
PS: I travelled thru your country and Mozambique too but that will be for another time
- Producer21/08/2016Routine helps to keep you sane on the roadI was very fortunate to be introduced to routine from a very young age. At age six I was shipped off to a Convent boarding school where austerity was the order of the day. Up early in the mornings, we were shaped by our daily routines and rituals....
Comments22/08/2016 #14 Amour Setter#8 @Dean Owen - LOL. You just have to find what works best for you. I use the Coconut Oil because it's cheap, easy on taste, easy to find and it has so many uses (health, beauty, cooking). It beats lugging around 20 products! When you travel a lot that is a life-saver in terms of saving space and weight :)22/08/2016 #11 Aurorasa Sima#10 Understandable give the circumstances that you don´t trust it. I don´t eat meat ... so it´s vegetarian sushi for me. I´d love to learn more about the Japanese kitchen ... fermented food is said to be super healthy. My use of coconut oil might have to do with laziness. I´m totally not vain. It´s detoxifying if you use it before showering (no lotion needed) and mix some baking soda in and you have your peeling all in one .... That said, give that I am a strong smoker and 46 I can´t complain. I look better since I stopped using Creme de la Mer and .. damit... forgot the name.22/08/2016 #10 Dean OwenSo I hear. It is all the rage right now. My wife is a make-up artist and she does use it. I am not convinced as for the last 25 years I have been surrounded by coconut eating nations that do not have a good record of life expectancy and whose habitants are not particularly healthy. There is one nation that does not traditionally use coconut at all, and that is Japan, which happens to have the highest life expectancy in the world. The Japanese do not use much oil of any sorts in their cooking (aside from dishes imported from Portugal that have become homogenised). As you'd expect, being half Japanese, 50% of my diet is Japanese cuisine. I'd recommend Japanese food to anyone concerned about health. I read your article and have no doubt coconut oil does have it's merits, but I get that from green tea and grilled fish (especially the cheeks!), and I'm proud to say I still have a full head of hair which I suspect is due to heavy consumption of seaweed (kombu, not nori).22/08/2016 #9 Aurorasa Sima#8 OMG Dean, you are so missing out. Does your wife use it? I use it as my only cream. It works wonders for nails, lips, HAIR .. even minor wounds ... no need to look at the article unless you want to. http://blog.aurorasa-coaching.com/2015/05/why-coconut-oil-is-your-go-to-beauty.html22/08/2016 #8 Dean OwenSounds way too healthy for me. I have a large container of coconut oil which I often use instead of olive oil to make pasta. Never once have I thought of putting a spoon of it in my mouth, but I'll try it out! I am pretty sure a routine will help with our insomnia but I fear Groundhog Day more than anything else. Great buzz as usual!21/08/2016 #6 Darryl John#4 I am also a big advocate of routine and yes I am at the gym 4,× a week. I find life is much easier if I remove the choices and know exactly what, where and how I will be using each day. Also as someone with certain mental health issues it keeps me from stress and anxiety and focussed on what I am to do. It also helps my writing.21/08/2016 #4 Amour Setter#3 Aurorasa I have been following this routine for most of my adult life. Before I began traveling I used to go to gym each morning, but for the past 5 years I'm now doing a daily Pilates routine instead. I have the daily routine no matter where in the world I find myself.

Comments01/09/2016 #44 William VanDorinI insist I am completely full of shit, but a majority has over ruled me on the matter and seem to take me quite seriously. This should have been a predictable circumstance. I am, after all wildly talented, alarmingly intelligent, strikingly attractive and ever so humble! I know this to be fact... They took a poll. LOL!19/08/2016 #38 Mohammed A. JawadUgh...how sometimes we dearly nickname the many elements of life, and give birth to differing ideas and notions. Perception matters. ..and you become the way you think. Either we are full of shimmering light or lost in the blurring darkness. Or say: by little this and by little that we are partially sensible.19/08/2016 #34 Kevin Pashuk#33 You have scored 8 on the shit-o-meter @Renée 🐝 Cormier... I tend to agree with you. I've known people who have taken profanity and made it an art form (for some reason most of them are Irish, but I digress)... others overuse it like the adolescent who got their first bottle of cologne for Christmas... They don't know that a little can go a long way.19/08/2016 #33 Renée 🐝 CormierJim, I think that people who are offended by people who swear are full of shit. Personally, I believe that people who swear are more authentic than those who don't. Religious people are full of shit, politicians are full of shit, most sales people are full of shit, job seekers are full of shit when they are being interviewed, employers are full of shit when they are interviewing... You are right, @Jim Murray. The world is full of shit. Oh shit!18/08/2016 #27 John VaughanIn a somewhat related vein, @Jim Murray: https://www.bebee.com/producer/@john-vaughan/no-problem

We have courage in God's presence, because we are sure that he hears us if we ask him for anything that is according to his will.
