- 06/11/2016I Just came across David Abram's central thesis of his book "The Spell of the sensuous" Perception and Language in a More-Than-Human World (1996)
David talks about
"What is characteristic of his account of perception is the centrality that the body plays. We perceive the world through our bodies; we are embodied subjects, involved in existence. Further the ability to reflect comes from a pre-reflective ground that serves as the foundation for reflecting on actions. In other words we perceive phenomena first, then reflect on them via this mediation which is instantaneous and synonymous with our being and perception in,as,and with body, i.e. embodiment !
@Ali Anani , @Sara Jacobovici I think you might find this particularly interesting or already know much about it.
I'm intrigued on what he says in this video about how Reading the alphabet affects human unfolding with the animate earth. I really need to read more on this, to say anything about what he points out here. But I would love to hear what my beBees know on this and I hope it throws some interesting discussions. Thank you :)Dr. David Abram: How Reading Affects US David Abram, author of "The Spell of the Sensuous" discusses the shadow side of alphabetic literacy: our estrangement from the surrounding world of nature....

Comments01/11/2016 #14 Lisa GallagherExcellent TED Talk. Isaac touched on realities that many of us may be somewhat aware of but can push it to the back of our brains and ignore. Fear can be a motivator or an isolator. A lot to take in... I loved his description of walking towards a hill with a backpack on. Perception can be skewed.31/10/2016 #13 Fatima Williams#9 @Deb Helfrich Intervention becomes inevitable as Sara mentioned. This speech has been on my mind the whole day and Sara thoughts had added more flavour to the entire concept . @Sara Jacobovici this variation , this unique finger print is not realised in our current world. Every one thinks if one person can''t do it neither can I or if one does something why cant I ? If she doesn't wish vote why should I and so on. Even children are all forced to think like alike so is our system.
To me !
Silencing our internal critic, correcting our misconceptions and harnessing our internal strength require great determination and self-empowerment . The body-mind feedback , control-loop and self empowerment forms a triad here for reality check. This responsibility of keeping this triad alive is the biggest question to myself ! And questions are endless !31/10/2016 #12 Sara Jacobovici#9 "All humans are 99.9 per cent identical and, of that tiny 0.1 per cent difference, 94 per cent of the variation is among individuals from the same populations and only six per cent between individuals from different populations." Yet we each have our own fingerprint. Intervention always matters. Predictability is, again, only a certain percentage, but that 0.1 percent makes all the difference. Keeps things interesting.31/10/2016 #9 Deb Helfrich#6 Well, it strongly reinforces your belief that therapy has to be tailored individually. Even twins would have unique realities.
I am just really curious these days about the 'tension' between the concept that we are all utterly unique and yet we are operating the same basic equipment. Which is exactly the same conundrum as the body mind feedback & control loop. Does the point of 'intervention' matter? Or will a change in any part of the continuum resonate through an individual's entire system?
Isaac's skills as a speaker are still resonating with me!31/10/2016 #7 Fatima Williams#6 So true @Sara Jacobovici I even had myself asking the same questions. Is this reality we have created for us or were they created based on the assumptions/fear etc ? It is indeed an eye opener for me as well. We are the creators of our reality and I'm glad you were inspired.31/10/2016 #6 Sara JacoboviciThank you so much for tagging me @Fatima Williams. A most impressive and inspiring talk. On many levels it reinforced my perception but, thanks to your opportunity for me to hear this presentation, it "opened my eyes" to an important and for me, unspoken factor; if we create our realities, then the universe is made up of billions of realities. Is there "a" reality, universal in nature, to which we can compare and be able to say; see, your living a lie, in reality...? How do we know what we have created is not real, is not true? What reality are we tapping into? It's still very raw for me, this idea, so I can't yet communicate it properly but am excited at exploring this further. Thanks again Fatima.

I enjoy the conversation this buzz brought about Flavio!30/07/2016 #19 Narveen Aryaputrii have a funny story for you, somewhat related to the woman and lust view:
Marilyn Munroe wrote George Bernard Shaw a letter with a proposition: " Mr. Shaw, " she wrote " I have a propositiin. Lets have a baby. With your brains and my beauty we will have a beautiful stunning genius ."
Geotge Bernard Shaw wrote back
" Madam," he said " I must respectfully decline. Since the product of a union is only 50% sure i dread to think of what were to happen if it were your brains and my beauty."30/07/2016 #17 Lisa Gallagher#7 @Dean Owen "men are like fine wine and they take a long time to mature, but once they do, they realise what they seek in a woman is a best friend." I find this statement to be so true! My husband and I met when we were only 15 and 16 years old. I love him more today than I could have imagined. I never thought he would be able to understand me (or women in general). I think he gets it now and our relationship has grown on a much deeper level than the lust we felt when we met years ago. I want to add, I too, have grown. I realize men want to fix everything for us and I can now appreciate and embrace that instead of getting angry. I think men aren't given enough credit, they care deeply and hold so much in because they are always trying to be strong for those they love.30/07/2016 #14 Brian McKenzie"If you don't let a woman have her own way, things are going to get ugly." - fewer true words ever spoken.

It is interesting to see how each country affects them. Returnees from England for example are not so outspoken, often reserved, polite. From Paris, they usually come back cool, trendy, aloof....29/07/2016 #11 Pamela L. Williams#2 You always say something that sparks a thought. I had a friend marry an Asian woman, believing that theory that they want the man to be in charge. What he failed to take into consideration was that she had been raised in the U.S. from age 2. Theory went out the window and this tale and the answer was the reality which didn't bode well for the marriage. End of story is obvious. The advice I once gave my nephew that he has held to in his almost 20 year marriage: "In public she is Always right, no matter who is involved; his mother, his minister, anyone. Call her crazy as a loon when you get home but you stand by your wife and she by you. The disagreements stay at home." They vowed to follow through on that advice and he told me it taught them two things: Demonstrating respect for your spouse in the company of others and knowing that no matter what happened in public, no matter how ridiculous one or the other may get, their spouse had their back; They knew they could trust each other. It overcame some serious interference by family and the predictions that their young marriage would fail did not materialize. Respect and Trust are the two elements that must exist in any relationship.29/07/2016 #6 AnonymousOh boy, SO much could be said here from a woman's perspective, but I shall choose brevity. 1.) If men found the answer to "what do women want" the intrigue would be over. 2.) Of all the traits a human being beholds, it seems from this tale (and many others) that what men want from women is beauty. I'll leave it at that!29/07/2016 #5 debasish majumderwonderful and intriguing post Flavio Souza! if a man consider woman's beauty is to share with friend and the privacy is being enjoyed alone and this is considered as an equitable approach, i am confused, whether woman is mere an object of lust? if so, how one can equally respect her, which is utter contrary to his evaluation. discriminating man and woman alone will create a conundrum. after all we all are human and mortal and beauty, authority etc. all are ephemeral, only paving to promote confusion. humanity alone can dissolve this illusion, i guess. however, lovely insightful post. enjoyed reading. thank you very much for sharing such lovely post.

Serio, CPC, CMC#20 Not only do people move on when 'pungent' people and situations occur, such as you describe the alcoholic friend @Ali Anani - but how about leaving organizations which appear pungent, banks with poor service, relationships which become pungent. And the list goes on...18/07/2016 #21 Kevin PashukThere is so much in nature to marvel at, and learn from, isn't there @Ali Anani? Your pondering is much appreciated. The second part of your post reminded me of a story from my mother's childhood. She came from a family of 9 children and it was in the 1930's in rural Canada. The great depression was on, but those that lived on farms did have food, but it was scarce. The family would share a loaf of bread with meals, with one slice cut for each person. My mother's younger brother loved bread and would regularly endure the punishment he received as a result of grabbing several slices of the bread and licking them. While his butt hurt, he did get to eat the bread since none of his siblings would eat it.18/07/2016 #20 Ali Anani@Jean L. Serio, CPC, CMC- I wish I had read your comment before publishing my buzz of today because your comment would have a key place in the buzz. You wrote "Regarding pungent vs fragrant - it seems to me it's possible to experience both pungent and fragrant times when moving through life". This is very true. I give one example of a friend who was alcoholic. He only associated himself with the like. Suddenly, he changed and became anti-drinking. He left his old friends because now he finds their alcoholic breath pungent. As I responded to Sara @Sara Jacobovici in my buzz Soapy Social Behaviors identification and attraction are related to each other. I wonder what you think? Thank you for making, as usual, a very interesting comment.18/07/2016 #18 Jean L. Serio, CPC, CMCAs you've shown us in this unique article, @Ali Anani, life is filled with both the pungent and the fragrant. Perhaps some are born pungent, a point you consider in one of your comments. Personally I believe this is true. Since the pungent Corpse flower, you describe, is unique in color, it's easy to see, how similarly - in life - pungent people can show a beautiful, enticing exterior to draw others to it. I'm thinking these people lure certain types with their beauty, in short as you associate with them you begin to smell that unique odor like the flies with the Corpse flower. But have become so well associated with this type of pungent person, you may ignore their unique smell (ideas) like the flies ignoring the rotting smell of the Corpse flower. Or, perhaps you have - in life - been searching for such a pungent person to associate with because you are one; and like attracts like. Regarding pungent vs fragrant - it seems to me it's possible to experience both pungent and fragrant times when moving through life. What are your thoughts on this Alli Anani? Perhaps on our way through life we must experience the pungent to move forward to the fragrant.17/07/2016 #15 Sara Jacobovici#13 I think that you present a very wise perspective @Ali Anani. And you provoked me to think about the distinction between "attraction" and "identification"; in nature we are predisposed to be attracted to those things in our internal and external environments which will be of benefit to us. Yet our human nature is drawn to aspects (such as heroes and antagonists) that we connect with through identification. Would you say that this distinction falls along that porous dividing line?17/07/2016 #13 Ali Anani#11 With seriousness I say @Sara Jacobovici yes, pairing is there. WE can't have one without the other. However; we have reference- that is our favoritism. In stories for example, they are only interesting if they have a conflict. We are biased to the hero and hate the antagonist. The hero has people who hate him and likewise the antagonist has people who stand by him. There is a porous dividing line. In solutions we have unsaturated one, saturated one and oversaturated one. If we change the temperature a shift takes and the saturated one may move this direction or the other. I wonder what you think!17/07/2016 #12 Lada PrkicI'll start with the answers backward. Dear Manjit, I couldn’t answer earlier because I have had many weekend chores to do, and don’t have much time to spend on socials.
My simple writing cannot be compared with your poetic approach to this topic (or any other, by the way). Because I am not a person of many words I always try to express my thoughts in a simple and understandable way, especially when I write in English, which is not my mother tongue. Every post of dear @Ali Anani consists of so many levels that urge us gently towards being contemplative.
Smelly plants found their places under the sun in a competitive battle with other plants for enabling procreation. The evolution has led to the emergence of these species and it is built into DNA of the plants, as well as the flies and bumblebees are being attracted by this smell, not by choice, but by nature.
But people are conscious beings and they are choosing whether to be attracted to the fragrance or to the stench of rotting. Those who have chosen the smell of rooting did that because their nature (acquired or inherited) is stronger than their ability to judge what is right and wrong and act in accordance with moral virtues.
Looking at what is happening in the world today, my conclusion is that there is a huge number of rotten and evil people. It's a harsh reality. Luckily, the good still prevails over evil otherwise the world would have looked completely different. Obviously, there are much more than 1% of good people who have chosen to visit fragrant flowers.17/07/2016 #11 Sara JacoboviciForgive me @Ali Anani but I say this with serious intent, "A rose by any other name would smell as sweet". The reason I say that is that everything has to exist; the (sweet) smell of a rose as well as the (pungent) smell of the corpse flower. What is pungent to us is fragrant to the fly. Now we look at how that transfers to behaviours and I can only refer to @CityVP Manjit's comment. Thank you Dr. Ali for pointing out the diversity of nature and our human nature.

Yes, without ideas pollination we lose a lot.20/07/2016 #28 Anees ZaidiAmazing post and mind-blowing commentary dear brother @Ali Anani. You have the unique quality of bringing simple words to their greatest depth and give them an entirely new perspective. Attraction and Identification - the two commonly used words, you have intertwined those so as to make them 'supplement' for each other. Since their birth, or I would better say since the inception in the mother's womb, human beings do attract to their surroundings/environment that give shape to their identity. However, as @CityVP Manjit has rightly said and shared Mohammed Ali quote this 'attraction' is not static. As we progress the attraction keeps changing and our identity evolves accordingly. Your water molecule metaphor is excellent. Sometime our attraction to a 'soapy behavior' slips us to a new ('real') identity. Wise are the one who cross this slippery path with maturity and wisdom. Thanks for sharing your fabulous thoughts and thanks to wonderful commentators as well for bringing rich insightful perspectives.20/07/2016 #24 Ali Anani#20 Like transformation of energy we may be in need of parallel transformations such as in behavior dear @Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD. I don't have a ready answer, but I do have a breathing space to think about what you suggested "Is it possible to have a spiral growth of loops? Do we have choices? So many intriguing issues to think about".Again, you make me think and I am truly provoked dear Margaret.20/07/2016 #23 Ali Anani#17 @Sara Jacobovici- this is sheer brilliance what you wrote "We are not stuck in a loop, we are in movement. As long as there is growth, there is maturity. If there is no movement". I love this idea and I hope that @CityVP Manjit would read it. Sometimes, we get stuck in a loop (whether positive or negative (stabilizing one). The question is if we do then how to move out of the loop? When we have nested loops the issue becomes complex and difficult to handle. Is it possible to have a spiral growth of loops? Do we have choices? So many intriguing issues to think about.20/07/2016 #22 Margaret Aranda, MD, PhDInviting all to participate in my Madness Memoirs Project: *Join Hive here!*

Close20/07/2016 #20 Margaret Aranda, MD, PhDSo many great thoughts from different atmospheres and stratospheres herein. Energy is housed in the cellular mitochondria, the 'power engines' of all cells...housing ATP, cAMP, cGMP, and all the cycle of energy production. Defects in mitochondria lead to rare illnesses that leave one devoid of energy. Some try to replace it with Co-Q enzyme and other amino acids and cofactors of life. But is what does mitochondrial damage do to change the paradigm here? Without storage of energy, or energy properly spent, I suggest that the spiritual becomes more profound.19/07/2016 #19 Ali Anani#18 We are chemical reactions- enzymes react and change conformations to efficate reactions. Proteins react. Amino acids react. Pumps in our bodies need energy to pump blood and potassium. Water dances as its bond stretches, folds, bend and so on. Reactions and pumping as well physical actions all require energy. Yes, where will this energy end up? Energy is not lost, but may transform to other forms of energy. SPiritual energy is not different. Well-said @Deb Lange19/07/2016 #17 Sara Jacobovici#10 I appreciate you introducing the element of time in this discussion @CityVP Manjit. The cycle of attraction and identification is not redundant, it takes place at different times. We are not stuck in a loop, we are in movement. As long as there is growth, there is maturity. If there is no movement, there is no growth and we cannot mature. I also appreciate your discussion of transformation versus renewal. There is an important distinction between the two in as much as transformation is a process of changing something which already exists and renewal is stopping the process of transformation and returning to the "original" state. If what I have written does not make any sense it's your fault Manjit because you push my mind into areas that are not clearly formed.....yet.19/07/2016 #15 Ali Anani#13 Thank you for your great comment dear @Deb Lange. I am so happy the buzz resonates with you. As for your suggestion on using energy as a metaphor it made me smile. Only two weeks ago I published a buzz on RACE as the New Strategic Model. The metaphor is coal a a source of energy. However; I plan to cover your ideas in my next buzz and I find it very practical. I assure you as I am equally attracted to your buzzes for they expand on my revelation.19/07/2016 #13 Deb LangeI love the distinction you make between attraction and identity. I identify with your musings as they resonate with much of my experience and take my ideas onto another plane. I am attracted to your ideas as they are rich in metaphor, and symbolism, colour and nature. I would be interested to see what you would write if you made a shift from water to energy. Water is a huge energy force in all its forms, whether it be the pouring rain, a swollen river, our own waste water that wants to be expelled from our bodies. If we are so much water we are also so much energy. I do not have scientific facts. What about our energy that resonates with words. That transforms into our physical experience. When we pay attention to sensing our energy, the energy of the other we bump up against in our daily live and the energy of the space we inhabit. Would love to hear your thoughts on energy.18/07/2016 #12 Ali Anani#10 I was hoping that you would comment on this buzz @CityVP Manjit and I am glad you did. You added new and terrific perspectives. First, the time dimension- our attractions change across a lifetime at various stages of our life. You linked time-based changes with identification- and yes this change corresponds to identification. Your quote of Muhammad Ali is timely and relevant.

Not all our growth is a natural progression of maturity and phases of life. We discover aspects of our existence which we realize we would like to change. Here soapy behaviours for me are different time elements of transformation. The soapy behaviour of washing away behaviours that hurt us or others is the macro challenge. Yet there is the world of tiny differences where engage in little washes of our spirit until the net effect is noticed over time. That form of soapy behaviour is called renewal. Close
- Producer19/07/2016The Curly Hair of ChangeI was busy writing a buzz on behavioral change when the idea of this buzz suddenly popped up. Change follows a curved path and straight hair follows a curly path to become curved. Are there similarities between the two changes and what lessons...
Comments21/07/2016 #36 Ali Anani#35 Thank you dear @Praveen Raj Gullepalli. In a forthcoming post which I shall dedicate to you I shall respond to your kind words and insightful comments. I assure you the value of a buzz is measured by the value of comments it brings. I am deeply grateful to you on my behalf and beBee as well21/07/2016 #33 Praveen Raj GullepalliDear Ali, your post evoked images of Samson and Delilah, Yul Brynner, Cher, Samuel Jackson, Jim Kelly, Sinead O'Çonnor, Persis Khambatta, a few so called God-men...all in one breath! :) In fact, thanks to a pilgrimage i took recently, I am presently hair-free (and care free too ;)..). Hair today gone tomorrow is one of my favourite lines! Change is somewhat similar today. Today's change is tomorrow's soon-to-fade tradition. The curve you speak of, could well be the learning curve that precipitates the straightening-up act :) What goes without saying is that change is indeed a constant. We need to change to evolve. Long have we lived with old traditions and beliefs, most of which were relevant to an age long gone and now irrelevant. If the entire humanity progresses (in terms of education, PCI, etc) uniformly (and every nation should help the neighbouring nation do that), all change would be concurrent, synchronised, meaningful and help us evolve faster, better, cheaper to a higher state of being. We need to put our money where our mouth (read change) is, and not on sustaining old rivalries, thinking, enmities and prejudices. Let us be the One race (Humanity)behind the One face (Human) and not many races behind many faces.21/07/2016 #32 Mohammed Sultan@ Dear Ali Anani,PhD.Thanks for sharing your creative metaphor about "un predictable" change.Change is no longer a matter of gradual adaption to the external environment,but like curly hair or Octopus arms it follows un predictable and rather un comfortable patterns that poses pressure on people and may take them to alternative future ;something new and may be something strange.When embracing change we must be ready for such a curly hair transformation or the dramatic dislocation of the Octopus arms.Such transformation and dislocation may force us to alter everything ;altering what people do ,the skills,the org tone and alignments and may be the way we compete. People's feeling of fear ,loss ,discomfort replaces their feeling of satisfaction and getting rewarded and regarded.Many org don't realized how frightened people are in times of such curly change.21/07/2016 #31 Ali Anani#29" because we now live in the visual age - we are beginning to see and question our beliefs". Great dear @CityVP Manjit I wonder how would you relate this to what @Melissa Hefferman write in her comment below "from a state of question / answering to a state of just being". Visuals increased our questioning of our beliefs and yet accepting change is a source of relief. Between "relief and belief" there is a gelly state? I would love to hear from both of you my friends.21/07/2016 #30 Ali Anani#28 "changing ourselves is the best thing"- I couldn't agree more. Change starts from within and you dearest @Melissa Hefferman and your female friend are very wise. It is like motivation if from within it stays self-renewing, but if from outside then it needs refueling. This is the way to move from " good thing, from a state of question / answering to a state of just being" as you ably wrote. Change is a fact and accepting it makes us feel better because we don't feel that we are forced to change. The motivation is from within. Thank you again Melissa for highlighting highly relevant points.20/07/2016 #29 CityVP Manjit#13 The distinction between hair and no hair begins with iconic symbol of Hair the Musical in 1967 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hair View more#13 The distinction between hair and no hair begins with iconic symbol of Hair the Musical in 1967 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hair_(musical) from this musical came the even more iconic song Aquarius https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tB90kgSnqFE - this was the greatest symbolic representation of HAIR because this was a huge statement of change especially with the backdrop of the Vietnam War. Instead of moving society towards renaissance, as a society we moved to the yuppie and image age of the 80's signified by the Gordon Gekko moive "Greed is good" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PF_iorX_MAw and the acceleration of the branded life - and that is what I mean by "no-hair" in particular a taboo about body hair https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KvAZq018bu8 - so what is different about the 21st Century? Instead of investing ourselves in image and ideologies - because we now live in the visual age - we are beginning to see and question our beliefs.

Thanks for this post, Sir Ali Anani.20/07/2016 #23 Ali Anani#22 Dear @Aaron Skogen- many thanks for writing such a challenging comment. This comment and few others raised so many eyebrows and I decided to write Part 2 in an attempt to answer and explore new horizons. For example, not all hair is the same (hair on arms has a different role on head). Second, are hair tips similar to root tips i plants? It turns out yes they are. Third point- if hairs are fractal then how best may we fill in the empty spaces? Some designers created new designs that are unbelievably beautiful. Why do we dye hair and what value do e create? Why is hair-dyeing is a booming business? Why people choose certain dyeing colors and what reflections can we make? here are more questions. We change hair but to what benefit? I released some of my thoughts in respect for your great comment, Aaron20/07/2016 #22 Aaron Skogen@Ali Anani, I very much enjoyed another of your analogies. This I witness on a regular basis "Some people will move into the acceptance and demand stages while many others shall be lagging in rejection and resistance stages." As a bald guy, when the rain falls, it lands making twisting and turning patters on my scalp. It reminds me that this life, our work, our relationships are not linear and the only constant in life is change. Yet, I wonder, how do we as leaders help those curls to get past the emotion and see the benefit of the change? How do we help bring others to embrace it. . ? A thought provoking post my friend!20/07/2016 #21 Ali Anani#20 A challenging question @Joanne Swecker- change is affected by both in my opinion. We need frequency to keep the momentum of change. You inspire me with the idea that change is a like a dry battery. The difference in potential represents the difference in the starting state and end state. The resistance to change is symbolized by the resistance for the flow of electricity (emotions). The rate of the flowing current is determined by both he difference in potential and resistance. If we need to improve the flow we need to frequently work on decreasing the resistance of people who oppose change.20/07/2016 #19 Ali Anani#17 @Lisa Gallagher- since reading your last comment my mind is rotating with questions? Is haie fractal? And if yes, with what to fill the spaces? Is long hair in humans has the value of hairy roots acting as sensory agents? Will long hair be more adapted for such possibilities? My journey of discovery started and this is the theme of my next buzz. I changed my topic and now more curved to this one?

I also believe the intentions if right, people shall be more understanding.14/07/2016 #9 Charles David Upchurch#1 @Jeet Sarkar are you okay with receiving writing feedback in public comments, as @Ali Anani has so kindly done, here? I generally find that writers, being human, are more receptive to proofreading and editing critiques when they are delivered privately and not put on display for all to see. On the other hand, it might be that if another reader and commenter could ever be as kind and as diplomatic as dear Ali is, maybe it would not matter so much whether it is public or private.14/07/2016 #8 Franci Eugenia HoffmanPerhaps, there was a mistake or two (per the discussion by our beloved @Ali Anani and @Anees Zaidi).

Comments15/07/2016 #34 Ali Anani#33 I imagine watching you in video narrating your comment dear @Deb Lange and I hear the music in your comment. Yes, we are rooted to earth and it is where we came from and where we shall go. Down to earth is what brings us in the flow and away from it is a recipe for failure.15/07/2016 #33 Deb Lange@Ali Anani “Does thou art and into dust thou shall return” Genesis 3:19 It is interesting that you write humans are like clay. The root meaning of the word, hu - man, comes from the Latin word humus, meaning earth and ground. Human, becomes humble. When we are humble - we are grounded. To Humility when we are shamed. My view in the evolution of humanity, the quality of being human, needs a return to our earthly foundation and connection with the earth. The more abstract and out of body, disconnected from earth that we are, the more we are disconnected to our emotions and energy. We can speak words as if they are not physical. But words, like our body, have physicality. I can feel and sense a word in my body and my lived experience when it is down to earth. Words such as these move me. But when words are abstract and disconnected from the physical world we can say them without understanding how they may land in someone's body and may choose actions that hurt ourselves or others. Hurt connects us back to our physical body. Thanks for your insights once again Ali Anani.13/07/2016 #31 Anees ZaidiDear brother @Ali Anani @Sara Jacobovici @debasish majumder Just now I see off my guest. Since yesterday I modified my behaviour, gave full attention to my guest and kept the 'distraction' at a distance. Sometime we, the humans, become selfish. We act/behave/think what we feel good at. This selfish attitude has both its positivity and negativity. Our behaviour to imbibe into what we are passionate about opens the door for new possibilities, creativities and inventions . This is the positive side of our passionate behaviour. On the negative side it takes away from us the fractal dimension of our personality as a social animal. Winners are the one who balance their behaviour between these positive and negative 'charges'.13/07/2016 #30 Ali Anani#29 I am not returning a praise dear @Sara Jacobovici by saying that one certainty is reading probing and relevant comments and buzzes by you. This one is in accordance of what I am saying. Yes, you are spot on and actually might be the root cause in my situations. Your writing "I would like to add the subjective factor of meaning as a variable in the Human Behavior Uncertainty Principle", you remind me of my post on what is love? The meaning of the word uncovered many different subjective factors and I have no choice but to fully agree with you.13/07/2016 #29 Sara JacoboviciThe only certainty that I can predict @Ali Anani is the level of your thought provoking writings. This one is no exception. The degree of unpredictability in regard to human behaviour is that no matter the "consistency" of the material humans are made of, it is the unknown meaning that humans give to situations and interactions which lends to the unpredicability. I would like to add the subjective factor of meaning as a variable in the Human Behavior Uncertainty Principle.13/07/2016 #27 Sara Jacobovici#7 I thank @Ali Anani for bringing my attention to your comment. It is a very honest self-observation @Anees Zaidi. I have no doubt that the interest in Dr. Ali's writings draws your attention there and beyond the happenings around you. Yet, I would have you ask yourself; would this behaviour have taken place if there were another guest, someone else, who holds a different role or relationship with you compared to the individual who was there at the time? After all, as adults we are able to delay our gratifications. I think it's all based on the meaning we give to the situation.13/07/2016 #25 Ali Anani#24 Clay teaches us how to balance dear @Lisa Gallagher. For example, it takes water profitably to a certain extent, but more water and clay becomes troublesome. So, when you write in a balanced way "I'd like to think of myself as clay dough, easy enough to mold by means of learning new ideas, not becoming stuck in my ways and strong enough to hold firm to my convictions just like the clay that dries" in fact you are teaching us how to balance. Great inspiration from you Lisa. I admire your mind..13/07/2016 #24 Lisa GallagherI'm happy my comment inspired you to write this @Ali Anani. I learned things about clay I never knew before. You're so correct, we can't predict human behavior and we can't mold another's behavior (unless it's a child) and we softly caress that 'clay.' Children are much easier to mold in both positive and negative fashions. Adults become stuck in their ways (many) and we aren't as permeable as we were as young children. I'd like to think of myself as clay dough, easy enough to mold by means of learning new ideas, not becoming stuck in my ways and strong enough to hold firm to my convictions just like the clay that dries.12/07/2016 #22 Ali Anani#20 I love comments that give different perspectives. Your comment falls in this category dear @Joanna Hofman. I feel human behavior is like weather very difficult to predict except for short time spans. The point that captured my attention is predictability can be boring. This is a unique perspective.12/07/2016 #20 Joanna Hofman@Ali Anani, marvellous post. Our world is a fractal world, we are a part of this fractal world. And I agree with you : Human Behaviour Uncertainty Principle today but tomorrow - I am not sure. The fourth industrial revolution and the digital world... I am not sure that human behaviour will be unpredictable...I would love to keep this uncertainty because predictability is a bit boring.12/07/2016 #18 Ali Anani#8 Your questions are so deep and your observations are so mature dear @debasish majumder. I loved all your questions, but the one that left me wondering is this one "s n't a matter being fluid having the kinetic motion with adequate strength to induce us to imbibe"? I thank you not only for your very kind words of appreciation, but more because your comment sent me into deep thinking. I feel something is about to emerge. This comment shall reside with me for long times to come.12/07/2016 #17 Ali Anani#7 Dear @Anees Zaidi- amazing you are as not only we have telepathy between us, but also guests at the same time. You wrote "Certainly 'No'. But this is the 'human behaviour'. We align our behaviour with our interests. This is the "fluid state' of human behaviour". Is this egoism? Or, what to call it? In all cases this is worthy of further exploration my dear friend. I feel @Sara Jacobovici will be able to cast light on this lovely observation.

You are a distinguished man of wisdom.14/07/2016 #49 CityVP Manjit#48 Dear @Ali Anani and @Sara Jacobovici IMHO comments are comments, practical wisdom is practical wisdom. When I read your thoughts it is through the lens of practical wisdom. Wisdom has x-ray vision, whereas comments are exactly that, opinions expressed as they have always been expressed since the dawn of newspapers through commentators or commentaries. Comments speak to the world, practical wisdom is meditating on the thinking we observe, to inspire the thinking we think. It is not a Manjit Style but phronesis - something that goes back to the world of ancient Greeks. Happiness comes through virtues is what Aristotle thought about and we just happen to share that virtue. Note how Socrates saw life as questions, this is what I refer to as the good old days :-)14/07/2016 #48 Ali Anani#47 @Sara Jacobovici- I assure you that it is the same line that captured my attention from the response of @CityVP Manjit. Our friend Manjit has his own style of writing and I call it the Manjit Style. There is always a surprise for the reader. One more thing is having to read a comment at least twice if written by Manjit because there is something deep behind his words to mine.14/07/2016 #47 Sara Jacobovici#45 As always beautifully articulated from beginning to end @CityVP Manjit. "...our balance is a dance between the familiarity of time and the open minded wonder of space." This line holds a special place for me. Thanks Manjit! (On a lighter note, it also gives a new meaning to "Fiddler on the Roof".)13/07/2016 #45 CityVP Manjit#44 Dear Sara, before Ali Anani introduced me to electron orbitals, I had very little conception about this idea. Where you say "each space acquires its own state" is what most resonates with me. I can equate time with certainty and in that, the flow from uncertainty, but the conception of space as it is in an electron orbital speaks even more to me. We are not predictable orbits in a world manifested with predictable orbits. What you call "moved by" is to me magic. We share moments of magic and we grow in that magic because like electrons our own path is no longer predictable - like magic we can appear at one point, disappear and appear at a totally different point - we are not bound by ideologies, we are not bound by politics, we are not even bound by certainties. The magic are the questions that move us. This is all space. Yet we are also appreciative of time, time sense, time appreciation, time intelligence. So we know our own terra firma, we know how to become grounded in our discovery. We know the time bounded nature of humanity and the eternity of space that is alpha (cosmos) and omega (quantum). It is here where our balance is a dance between the familiarity of time and the open minded wonder of space. We are electrons of intelligence and lovers of life - for we touch our flow through space, cosmos or quantum.13/07/2016 #44 Sara Jacobovici#42 Dear CityVP Manjit. The following is an attempt to verbalise what I experienced when I read your "comment". I apologise for the rough edges. I have often been moved by your writings, be they articles or comments. This one seems to have moved me into the experience of the integration between time and space. In that space I experience memory, mythology and storytelling as manifestations of time. In this way, each space aguires its own state. "The mythology in electron orbitals is the atomic symbol." Thinking is the energy equivalent to the energy in the space of orbitals. In this way, I am thinking that we are born into the space of the unknown and the imitations/images which occur, take place in the flow from uncertainty to certainty.12/07/2016 #43 Ali Anani#42 Genius response dear @CityVP Manjit. I love the notion of not only space, but also with what we fill it. I have some observations, but I would love first to read the response of @Sara Jacobovici for she is more directly involved in this brain-raising (and not only hair-raising) response.12/07/2016 #42 CityVP Manjit#23 Memory and communication is at the heart of what @Sara Jacobovici engages in helping people overcome great challenges in her profession. It is also at the heart of projections of success, of the values we attach to the creation of meaning. This is the world as we know it. A part of Sara's motivation to be involved in this merging of minds is the creation of space, that space being to think. Having enabled a space to think, we also need other spaces to process, and we indicate that in our comments when our mental bandwidth is exhausted. In her comments Sara spoke metaphorically, and metaphor is its own space.
If we combine memory and communication does it always lead to facts and truth? At an individual level there maybe a aha moment, yet that is another space that precedes insight. In our society the predominant outcome is mythologies. We are a society born of mythologies, whether that is in arts or science. The mythology in electron orbitals is the atomic symbol https://tearstonegraphics.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/atomic.jpg That symbol is a philosophical reality born of mythology when it pertains to electron orbitals.
I am reflecting here that space is important at the human dimension as it is in the sub-atomic level. We do fill this space with the mythological, we do fill it with the philosophical and then a host of emotional components and societal mythos - which is actually an essential part of human storytelling. Where I find myself to be philosophical, I must create space for the unknown - then I have a learning journey. If I am operating from the field of memory, I have already learned that, but does my mind have space for the new? I may well be an imitative being and imitation is the natural expression that fills our society. Am I merely image/imitation? I am that if I am filled with certainty flowing through my body. My response to your question is my total uncertainty.12/07/2016 #36 Ali Anani#34 Dear Jean @Jean L. Serio, CPC, CMC- what to say and I am lost of words?

And POOF! My first patient was in the Jail Ward and the hard, 'real' world upset all my heart. My first patient held his girlfriend hostage at the butt of a gun, placed to her head for hours after dreaded hours. Finally, the LAPD gunned him down. At 19 years old, I walked in on this human that I was bound, by the Hippocratic Oath, to 'heal.' He was now a quadraplegic, no movement but could feel every needle stick every morning I had to draw from his atrophied right arm. He shed real tears, begging me, "No! Not again! Please, no, I beg" whenever my white coat walked in filled instead with blood. He expressed great sorrow, for now his todays were the same as all his tomorrows. My struggle inside went from rage, < outrage, < outrageous in the extreme for what he had done, and I never lost sight of the girlfriend he had once won. "I am forced to take care of him." That was my first thought.....until day 30 of the rotation, when I was sorry that I had to leave him. To someone else who may not care. I still think of him every day. / ...and now I'll bring my religion in to say, that also, I pray.25/07/2016 #9 Charles David Upchurch#1 @Jeet Sarkar you wrote that "[what] hurts the most is that brutal activity of the criminals.

While I understand the pain of other victims of crime (having repeatedly suffered both property and violent crimes), I believe that you, and @debasish majumder and at least a billion other human beings have all lost your way in dehumanizing abnormal, aberrant, and anti-social behavior.
We are ALL people, human beings. NONE of us is always without fault. Part of our growth from the innocence of babies is that we make mistakes while learning how we should and should not treat one another in our families, our communities, and the greater world. Some learn from fewer mistakes how and why to be kind to one another. Others, because their most basic needs have not been met, or because they missed some important lessons along the way about the value of EVERY person (including themselves) make more mistakes which harm others. A VERY small percentage (perhaps 1/10 of one percent) are genuinely social psychopaths, meaning that they lack the emotional intelligence to recognize the humanity of others (no matter how many mistakes they could otherwise have learned from) and to simply CARE about others more than just themselves. Yet no matter how inhumanely a person thinks and feels, even the most abhorrent actions must honestly be acknowledged as a [small and very dark] part of what it means to be a human being. As @Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD was suggesting, below, the answer relies on us accepting everyone's humanity while also rejecting inhumane behaviors.25/07/2016 #8 Charles David Upchurch#7 @Ray Looker, I am not an expert, but that doesn't sound right. It also doesn't sound to me like respectful and civil discourse. If you are to make such a vociferous assertion, I would kindly ask you to state your historical (not simply religious) references for that claim. Thank you, sir.24/07/2016 #6 Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD#3 #4 We should not be looking to outside people or forces to change the tide. We need to look within ourselves, and live true to our God even at the mercy of a terrorist. We love minute-by-minute, 100% pure.

Racism and discrimination based on religion has nowadays become very common, which is very unfair. But which hurts the most is that brutal activity of the criminals. Truly, criminals have no religion. Humanity is a term which those criminals hate, i think so. They are inhuman. However, thank you for the post sir. enjoyed reading.

When I look at a rainbow I know that it is more than what I can physically see - that the actuality of the rainbow is that it is a full circle, but my imagination can make it an arc with a beginning and end, it can make it a vessel. That I have all these choices is a freedom of imagination, that I know its reality is to know the meaning of being whole.01/07/2016 #50 Anees Zaidi#49 @Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD seeing the world through the eyes of a child is the most beautiful experience.

Comments04/07/2016 #17 Franci Eugenia Hoffman@Jeet Sarkar, you had a lot to say in your buzz and I am glad you said it. Sometimes the yearning for the taste of honey is overwhelming and those not capable of producing it themselves feel they have to steal. This is unfortunate as they don't know what they are missing by being lauded for their own creation. This is the reason for good bees supporting good bees, and watching out for each another.04/07/2016 #12 Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD#2 @Jeet Sarkar: Welcoming you also, and you've started off with a huge Buzzzzz! Cool! Awesome to have your insights, and as with many of us, you will find yourself 'honing' in on making 'honey' with your Beezzz, because it's going to make your own writing/honey better and better, exploring new insights such as poetry (right, @debasish majumder?) and script-writing (yes, @Ali Anani)....so here's to great honey! And a warm welcome!!!30/06/2016 #8 Ali Anani@Jeet Sarkar- you wrote very eloquently "So it is evident that restoration of honey is also an important factor along with the production of honey".This is the core message in your buzz and you "buzzed" it very well. Yes, producing honey is one thing, preserving it within the right structure is another.
I remember few of us went on a trip to prepare shish kebab. All of us contributed to prepare for the meal (and produce honey), except one. Funnily enough, he was the first to start eating. He was not contributing in the production; worse he was the first to consume it (not even preserve it).30/06/2016 #7 Mohamed AmroussiHoney Bees are Prophets alike , they transmit a message for us People , to learn from, a message that contains a whole Life structure and content.

Comments30/06/2016 #23 Margaret Aranda, MD, PhDr#19 P.S. I am constantly beguiled by how much information you convey, and how concisely it appears on the screen. When one reads your Comments, they take up more thought and space than the words themselves. I just thought I'd mention that now, before I forget. I always look forward to your insight. Thank you. 👏🏼30/06/2016 #22 Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD#19 @Sara Jacobovici: my deepest appreciation for all, as it is a hard time with not only the death of a legend in Asim Can Gündüz, but the Istanbul International Airport bombing that so closely followed. I think that's where I got the concept that something/one could "Scream silent echoes....' at all. Somehow, I feel and hear the walls of the airport, and due to my experience with trauma (something @Leckey Harrison knows all too well, also), I could almost smell the blood. I just got lost in that moment. Thank you for such a though-provoking reply on the ultrasound, the book recommendation, and the guitar close to the heart. Sweet.29/06/2016 #19 Sara JacoboviciFirst @Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD I am sorry for the loss of Asim Can Gunduz ("Awesome John"). All the power to those who will not let his music be forgotten.
"It screams silent echoes to impart wisdom and appreciation of each phase, each dimension of the Circle of Life." Very powerful line Margaret. In regard to the sounds of the ultrasound, the amniotic fluid is considered a better sound conductor than water. I wonder what the baby experiences as those "[s]ound waves permeate through a woman's uterus." In regard to the mammals, I draw your attention to the book Thousand Mile Song: Whale Music in a Sea of Sound, by David Rothenberg.

The love never ends that was never pretend.
When the music comes from the soul and is shared it inspires untold numbers of others to carry on the feeling that came with it.
That feeling, that emotion is a piece of the artists soul that we take with us every time we stop to remember when and feel it all over again.28/06/2016 #6 Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD#5 Powerful history of Asim Can Gündüz. Webbed fingers at birth occur at a rate of about 1:2,500 births. That he needed sooo many stitches for a surgery that was presumably done during childhood tells me that they were very, webbed, indeed. And the tissue, as with any tissue after surgery, was never the same again. The fact that he would continue to practice while bleeding shows inner determination par excellence. I'm in awe.28/06/2016 #5 Selim Yeniçeri#4 Asim Can Gunduz, with his stage name in America, Awesome John, was an artist who made an influence on me as a person, more than his art. He was an amazing, incredible, phenomenal guitarist, and was the examplar for perseverance, considered his fingers were webbed from birth, and had to go through a surgery to get rid of those webs, with the cost of over 350 stitches. Still, he became an unforgettable guitarist. I remember he said his fingers would bleed during practice, and he would still continue. And personally, I find it as a sign from God about taking part at this concert to remember him, because years ago, when we shared the stage for a few times in Istanbul, he said he believed I would be a phenomenal musician, too. And everything about this concert developed out of nothing just when I'm about to finish the recordings of my new album after a 16 years of interval, so I think he says "Go, kick a..." in his own way.
