Comments29/11/2016 #24 Max Carter#23 Birthcontrol is cop out option in my opinion when the human is perfectly capable of exercising self discipline and i think a reworking of sex education focusing on why one should be selective from a deer understanding the effects could be more effective and reduce a lot of other issues .
I think of it as a modified. ttantra teaching n the schools covering the base concepts of why you respect the act no matter how pleasurable it is as something you do with responsibility and respect for yourself and your partner. All birth control does is allow us to continue to give in just because we can and it weakens self discipline in other areas of life.29/11/2016 #23 Mohammed Sultan#19 By birth control I mean putting a strategy aiming at raising per capita income with the same available resources and so too bettering people's health ,educational and job opportunities.I mean also giving people more chance to participate in public life.Simplicity is not also built on being alone ,isolating yourself from the current of events.If you have a vision and continuous and self-monitoring then you will realize that the simple formula about human development would be Sharing=Caring.29/11/2016 #22 Steve BradyWow @Ali Anani...what a thought provoking post. I have found many times that a simple, single social interaction, personal or virtual, can lead to pleasing complexities. I am a Restorative Practices and legal reform advocate. The human behavioural equation you include is very helpful. "Scripted" approaches that ignore or even suppress potentialities very often stifle the rich and deep Justice and healing that is possible between people and in communities.28/11/2016 #20 Deb LangeDear @Ali Anani have many ideas spinning around, but I will share just one at the moment about population and the ascent of feminine energy in both men and women. in Japan there are young men who are called “grass eaters” - they are like plants and have no sexual desire.
This will help contain population. Perhaps our DNA is changing as innately we know there are enough people in the world and we do not have to populate for survival of the human species.
http://www.ascentofwoman.com/additional-material-1-128/11/2016 #19 Max Carter#17 Control is an illusion and who has the authority to set the tolerances
Population explosion happens because of a lack of self discipline.
Bruce Lee "Simplicity is the key to brilliance.
The reason why we over complicate pass the simple expression is to make ourselves look better in the eyes of others and show off to insist we are the expert.
The more complex yo make it the more recognition you get for being the only one who can explian it because of how complex yo made in order to show off.
Here's the problem with consensus. Every study shows that the mass keys to the lowest intellect or to say
This why I agree with a quote that says a wise man makes his own decisions, an ignorant man follows public opinion.28/11/2016 #18 debasish majumderwonderful post sir @Ali Anani! in the water bodies, fish gets substantial oxygen to survive owing to oxygen dissolved in water! in water, oxygen is available in dissolved in the upper surface of the water, a compound! it amazes me! precisely 'O'. intriguing to me! however, in dealing and explaining about population, i guess, this is an intriguing component. however, your post is intriguing indeed! enjoyed. thank you very much for the share sir.28/11/2016 #17 Mohammed SultanDear @Ali Anani. Simplicity is required,but it should be controlled.Population explosion happens because there's no birth-control.Simplicity in the side of complexity can also be controlled,if our ideas are put in the right framework or the right context.When in brain-storming sessions we accept a winning idea and give up the others.it may seem as a win-lose situation,while on the contrary,all will finish up winning.We reach complexity because everyone try hard to apply his own filter which reflects his background or his area of expertise,and this at the end distorts the idea or complicates the solution.Kant was right when he quoted"Thoughts without context are empty."Oliver Homes also quoted"I don't care at all about the simplicity on the side of complexity;but I would give everything for the simplicity on the other side of complexity."I know of no more encouraging fact than the unquestionable ability of man to elevate his life by conscious endeavor-H.D.Thoreau.Dr. Anani,if we let simplicity pass,it will go unnoticed and can get consensus easily,this what we have learned from our ancestors.28/11/2016 #16 Tausif MundrawalaExchanging ideas leads to something remarkable in this world. Many ideas don't see the light of the day as they are been suppressed in the form of discouragement. We both have been exchanging wisdom whenever you pen a new buzz. Though it seems simple but a lot of thinking goes in order to pen an entire buzz and then commenting on it. Thanks once again for sharing this buzz with us, Sir Ali Anani.28/11/2016 #15 Max Carter#9 I have written a few pieces in where I go over what the condition of being human is.
In simplest terms it is condition of asking why and never being satisfied with the answer unless it meets our criteria for the right one.
We insist it must be more complex otherwise we feel stupid for missing how simple it really is.
The definition of life varies based on the life being lived. and the desires of that one life. It is the desires that we have that tell us what we think life is.
The more complex the desire the more complex the life to meet said desire.
What is life in the simplest terms.
Its the action of being. anything is a state of being is experiencing life.
After that your life is what you and the rest of us all create in the shared reality.
After that it becomes about defining your life and your existence through the ego expression of self which is the things we attach emotion to that define who we think we are.
After that we spend way too much time trying to validate who that is through discussions in social media. ;)haha28/11/2016 #13 Harvey Lloyd#10 Yes individually i believe we can advance within the Bebee environment. But to your post and the unsustainability question of population, i would ask is Bebee or any social media site furthering the forest or rather moving us away from consensus of sustainability?
More a point of discussion without any data to support either side. I would state that social media has allowed for unique groups of beliefs to gather within a globalized platform. This is an observation of the question.
My statement of the forest ruling the tree was pointed at the society we are creating will eventually dictate our actions, as it has in the past. Unsustainability will drive the survival need back to the forefront. From the strife exposed during our elections to technology replacing the consumers job, it all seems a bit irrational.
We seem to be missing a common purpose that would define the forest. A forest is an ecosystem whereby each element is beneficial to the next. Bebee, social media or humans should share in a similar ecosystem. Unfortunately when we speak this way the word conformity comes into play and the needs of the individual espoused. This ecosystem discussion should not exclude the ideas of any, but rather bring the forest of ideas into a common purpose of a self-sustaining forest.
I can't state with empirical evidence what is unsustainable but i suggest we all know what it looks like.
But alas, @Sara Jacobovici #9 "....and then we go off again, one idea leading to another, one question leading to another; what is life?"28/11/2016 #12 Ali Anani#11 This is a great comment @Sara Jacobovici. Yes, it is the surprises that make this journey together a very pleasant one. You surprise me with your quality of comments. This in turn makes me even more grateful to you. Because you feel my gratitude *which is genuine) you tend to surprise me with another surprising comment, leading me to get more surprised and again influencing you. This is a feedback loop because what affects me affects you and in turn you affect me. It is this kind of loops that may develop into surprising things and unexpected one. In my exchanges of comments with you this has been the way we interacted. This is how new ideas are blossoming. I can't thank you enough dear Sara.28/11/2016 #11 Sara JacoboviciDear @Ali Anani, your buzz has produced the energy to spark the process of iteration of Ideas. I expressed to you that I consider myself a concepts person and that equations are out of my comfort zone and definitely your equations are way out of my league. But you have been very generous and supportive and allow me to see that I can enter this zone of equations in my own way. You write, "We don't have to be right or wrong as much as learning together and developing the simple equation." Thank you. I am in that process of looking at what started off as a simple idea and experiencing it branching off as a result of the dynamic exchanges through your buzzes and discussions from your readers.
In this buzz I pick up on the discussion of predictability and surprises. One of the things that makes you such a great observer and teacher, Dr. Ali, is that in spite of predictability, you are open to, invite and are excited about surprises.
If we knew it all from studying the function and simply create equations to communicate that function, we would truly be in a box without an exit. But it's the surprises that allow us to navigate through the Mandelbox and exit to see the light.28/11/2016 #10 Ali Anani#8 @Harvey Lloyd- if we extend your analogy to beBee a bee represents a tree and forest equates to the forest. Are we on the edge of survival or have we moved beyond as we are "because if "the higher callings of intellect". Yes, studying one bee is needed, but also the collective actions. The beBee society shall eventually rule the bee even the bee shall advance by interactions with other bees.28/11/2016 #9 Sara Jacobovici#1 #3 #5 #7 @Max Carter, in a formal research endeavor, conceptual definitions would need to be clearly presented. I have no doubt that you see your equation DESIRE=LIFE as the only equation that makes sense, yet since we are biological, organic, sensory beings that create meaning from our sensory experiences, what makes sense to you conceptually does not equate with what makes sense to me. No doubt you can produce examples of your equation. I have many examples of individuals whose desire was extremely strong and viable but could not sustain life....as we know it.... and then we go off again, one idea leading to another, one question leading to another; what is life?28/11/2016 #8 Harvey LloydHuman behavior can be reviewed from the individual or the masses. Like the trees the single tree can be studied and we can gather information, when we look at the forest though, we must look up from the individual and quantify the whole and its purpose or goals.
Is the forest sustainable in its current mode? From an individual perspective i believe the answer would be yes today, tomorrow is another story. The forest will eventually rule the tree.
Our purpose not too long ago was quite simple, survive. Conformity was expected as a part of an integrated society that required each others skills and knowledge. With technology and greatly enhanced productivity, we have been able to separate ourselves from the edge of survival. We now seek higher callings of intellect.
A smart forest is a good thing but not when it elevates us above the fundamentals of survival. Many great nation-states have come and gone over the millennia, all shared this very common thread of collapse. Thanks for the post @Ali Anani28/11/2016 #7 Max Carter#6 I never feel as though I surpassed anyone as for me that would mean I would be setting myself above other people and giving my self a narcissistic view of me. ;) haha

I do appreciate the compliment in the spirit it was intended @Ali Anani
I do also use the word peer with sincere honesty. Close28/11/2016 #5 Max Carter#4 I disagree and here's why.
In life I lacked the ability to go to a higher learning institute and yet though my desire to learn I attained wisdom and understanding to be able to on a peer level with you and other academics.
Without the ability to have the education to give me a piece of paper to give me credibility my desire created a life that allowed me to achieve the understanding anyway and have the confidence to express myself as if I did have the piece of paper.
My desire created my life.

Instead say, jeez mum, you worked so hard on preparing this food for us, thank you. You are not lying and you are showing gratitude for her effort. The problem I am faced with and I think many men have issues with is the saying, "Does this dress make me look fat"? I am still trying to figure that one out.24/11/2016 #7 Hassan AmanGreat read, @Aurorasa Sima. Indeed gratitude is crucial and I personally, if I don't like something, I would rather stay silent instead of saying or expressing something that might make someone I like feel bad. Hey, to avoid making others feel bad (especially for something they did with good intentions) is a form of gratitude too. Have a great one ahead.24/11/2016 #6 Sushmita Thakare Jain@Aurorasa Sima in my life Gratitude is important. When I even wish my apartment watchmen or say the waiter in the restaurant 'Thank you' I do it because I mean it. Yes, these days there are many who even fake their emotions but I believe we must keep on doing what we believe in and not fake it! Sharing it ahead to spread the wave of gratitude.23/11/2016 #1 Max CarterI dig it.
For me personally my gratitude starts in the realization of the interdependence that we have in life to even be here in the first place. That gratitude does not always exist and at times I am down right ungrateful for the now I am experiencing and in those times is when I start looking for something that I truly am grateful for in the moment.

Comments21/11/2016 #8 Lisa GallagherHi @Sasa Radovic, thought provoking blog. I liked your definition of problems vs. challenges. Yes, to get a 6 pack ab, that is a challenge for many. When I read about the Mountain going up... I did exactly that when we were climbing (not rock climbing) but the grades were fairly steep. We got 1/4th of the way up, I looked and said, oh my I can't do this! Well we decided to go slow, take photos along the way and stay focused on what was right there in front of us, taking in all the beauty. Before I knew it, we were at the top of the Mountain looking down over the bay and the Ocean was off in the distance. I realized that what I considered a major problem for me turned out to be a feat and gave me the courage to try something new again!19/11/2016 #7 Max Carter#4 @Sasa Radovic I agree though I don't use terms such as good or bad, I look at it as what amount of pain and suffering am I willing to endure to repeat a lesson I could have learned another way. There are things in life worth enduring to reach and some that aren't, the great thing is you get to choose those boundaries for yourself.
For me I broke it down to one rule.
Do not go to jail, if you like it, do it again, if not don't.
That and the last thought before most of my decisions is "Fuck it why not?" is why my life is what is.18/11/2016 #3 Max CarterI dig this look at the topic.; I tend to see at is we go into our sacred dark to determine the divine light we show the world. It is the sacred dark we keep our secrets of things we would do with maybe someone else if the situations was right, things we might think about doing but are not sure we want to face the consequences of and things we know we would never do but are exciting to think about anyway.
It's the things we have no problem telling other people that we do or things we have no problem doing publicly that defines the light we show the world.

- 11/11/2016A great comment by @Milos Djukic written in a great buzz by @Kevin Pashuk.
"In order to achieve "unrealistically high" goals and expectations we need more dreamers (rational visionaries) jointly united far above the merely material goals. If we abolish disagreement, we will never reach these lofty goals. Everything that is prohibited by dictate also represents something that is insufficiently explored. It should not be forgotten that every discovery has always been preceded by years or even decades of painstaking learning and rational investigation. Without a good foundation breakthroughs almost never occur. What is less known, is the fact that instantaneous insight - insight into the reality or essential meaning of something, as an integral part of innovation process, was often initiated through social-spiritual interaction with people. I am inclined to respect other people's thoughts, misconceptions and dilemmas. My approach as a lecturer is to let people and young colleagues alone to decide what to do and only to engage when there is a question. My idea is to be a support, never an instructor. I also believe that enough dedicated people, can encourage one's insight, perspective and innovative perception through mutual interaction, discussions and also spiritual learning, which certainly is not mysticism. What is important is the human interaction as an inexhaustible source of unusual and the most valuable inspiration. Only when we are awake and rational, but also a little imaginative, we are able to share with others the most valuable parts of ourselves."Between Mysticism and Reality – The Realm of Imaginationwww.bebee.com This post was inspired by three disconnected, yet in my fertile mind, related things.

I have to wonder if people don't work on or practice change earlier in life, well is it that much harder to stay stuck in your ways, or a situation you don't like because the fear of change is over whelming? I made many changes without worrying first in life. I had the confidence that the choices I made would work out as they should or even better than I could imagine. I also stayed realistic knowing that change can rock the boat too. I never want to be that person who stays stuck in their ways... no matter what obstacles I face.06/11/2016 #48 Aurorasa Sima#42 True.

And a lack of self-love.
As you say, progress is only possible in a dynamic environment.
Initial resistance to change the status quo can be a survival instinct of the brain so that we should not be too hard on us and just continue with baby steps.05/11/2016 #45 Mohammed A. JawadIs it because of fear people become scary to adopt changes or stay behind thinking that any changes may bring in hurdles? But, change in itself is a dynamic process and rejuvenating rule of life. Without plausible changes, everything will begin stinking, and in static ways there can be no progress.
- 31/10/2016It’s common practice for schools to discipline unruly students by placing them in timeout or sending them to detention. But a Baltimore elementary school is taking a different approach by offering students a “mindful” alternative: meditation.
Rather than force disruptive students into mind-numbing, boring detention halls, students at Robert W. Coleman Elementary School are sent to the Mindful Moment Room instead.
According to Upworthy, kids who misbehave are encouraged to sit in the room — complete with lamps, decorations and plush purple pillows — and practice deep breathing or mindful meditation. The techniques are used as a way to help students calm down and re-center their thoughts. Kids are also encouraged to talk through the misbehavior that landed them in the meditation room...

So in fact, meaningful engagement feeds back positively on to all the elements ie meaningfulness (dopamine), enhanced self-esteem/efficacy, gratification (dopamine), value contribution and achievement. We've been measuring all these parameters with the online Neuro-diagnostic and tracking before and after intervention. Absolutely fascinating, monitoring real and sustained positive change. With this we have also seen a positive correlation with diminishing illness.30/10/2016 #4 Gerald Hecht#3 @Deb Helfrich I couldn't agree more (but am striving to do just that; the metaphysics of he venture are challenging as well as enjoyable); this is a wonderfully written article...and, for those who may need such things....these constructs are easily shown in a statistical software package/language of your choosing to form the "Factors" from whence the technique known as "Factor Analysis"derives its name...the Factors are unusual amenable for falsification based hypothesis testing...so you needn't take my word on this...you would save yourself time and other recourses which could be better spent exercising one's "Neuroplasticity Muscles"! 🎸🎶🕶🚀30/10/2016 #3 Deb HelfrichAbsolutely nailed this one, @Ian Weinberg. You condensed so much science into a very readable article that can help people understand that change has very little to do with the common notion of willpower. They need to start with meaning and purpose and use any means necessary to bolster their self-esteem. Which will cause neurochemical changes that will enhance the change feedback loop physiologically.
@Gary Sharpe has done a tremendous job in displaying what this process looks like in a real-world scenario, even when diagnosed with a brain that had a part that was severely compromised and while taking brain-altering drugs that had ramifications far beyond the specific symptoms they were meant to address.

I read dis-order, Leckey, not disorder. Not orderly, not rigid, which indicates greater plasticity which means greater possibility.
- Producer24/10/2016The Art Of Self ConquestI have the uttermost respect for people who leave their comfort zone in pursuit of a higher goal. Individuals who do things that are hard for them to reach this higher goal. As people, we make a choice. We can say: I am who I am, and I do not...
Comments25/10/2016 #44 Aurorasa Sima#37 You have kindly commented on the "Do you want to search or find" post as well. That´s the point. Even if know things. Do we live them? Why do top athletes have trainers that could not run half as fast? It can help us to be asked questions even if know the answer. It´s easier if you don´t walk alone.
Thank you for comment and the following discussion with Harvey was interesting to read too. My pragmatic approach to the Bourbon analogy would be to pour it in a glass (:24/10/2016 #42 Deb Helfrich#41 I am so far towards Introvert - that it really isn't a stretch to call me a hermit, yet I am not a bit shy....and when I ignite it draws a lot of attention!

Right @Charles David Upchurch? But I always know which recipes call for Maker's Mark - the occasional Manhattan is necessary in a well-lived life.

Once we free our nerves saying that we are capable of scaling heights which we never thought about it before than we can achieve the unthinkable. The flying albatross caught my attention and I could not resist myself reading this wonderful post and commenting on it. Thanks for sharing this post with us.24/10/2016 #38 Harvey Lloyd#37 Without the reflection of others such as @Aurorasa Sima then i am merely on a deserted island with no stimulation to even demand a different question. Thank you for your compliment @Deb Helfrich. So many times in my crazy existence in small business i have chased the wrong question.
I forgot who said the likes of this quote. If i have five days to solve the puzzle then i will spend four looking for the right questions and the fifth solving. (I butchered it, but hopefully the concept came through.)24/10/2016 #37 Deb Helfrich#36 @Harvey Lloyd - you have a great skill in generating better questions! I admire it.
The Art of Self-Conquest requires a lot of skillful questions. And I do believe that taking the journey with someone like @Aurorasa Sima who can demonstrate her abilities via interacting on beBee makes the journey a lot easier. Sometimes, when left to our own devices, we will do everything we can to avoid answering the one question that will unlock our cage.24/10/2016 #36 Harvey Lloyd@Aurorasa Sima I liked the bird cage analagy and would like to reduce the cage to a series of parts. The bottom being our fundamental beliefs, the bars being the emotional concepts that are caging, the roof our belief that we are protected by the entirety of the cage system. What if we took the person and the cage within this metaphor and stuck them on the deserted island. Based on self preservation i would think that the roof would collapse as soon as the bars were recognized as being counter productive to survival.
If the above is true, then we would have to consider why did we build the cage in the first place, within our social setting? This style of comparison usually helps me better retain the right question rather than the right answer. A more challenging question would be who built the cage? myself? or someone else? To answer this one we usually have to inspect what the cages intended purpose was/is. In this we can find our way out.
As usual your posts are stimulating and challenge folks to think.
