Comments24/07/2017 #11 Phil Friedman#9 Then I apologize for intruding into your private space. I did not understand that when you speak of a democracy of expression and everyone's right to post in every hive and comment on all posts, that you did not extend that to include those who disagree with you.
As to your allegation that I am a bully, I will let this exchange speak for itself, for anyone who reads it will fail to find anything in my words resembling bullying. But nevertheless, out of respect to your fragility, I'll refrain from any further exchange with you on beBee. Res ipsa loquitur.24/07/2017 #6 Phil Friedman#2 There is no suggestion to prevent anyone fro expressing him- or herself on beBee, nor any desire to restrict the general feed or stop people from operating "filly open" hives where anything can be posted. The only suggestion being made is to enable some hives to choose to topic-filter what appears in them. Because that is the only way to implement true Affinity Networking, which includes the ability to associate and discuss particular topics of common interest without being overwhelmed by indiscriminate posting. Everyone has the right to speak, but nobody should be forced to listen. Cheers!

Comments03/07/2017 #48 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#47 May be to see what quality of coffee your clients prefer. Does that give you any clue about them @Preston 🐝 Vander Ven. I am serious and the questions that pops up is can we link what people drink with what they want? If not, why then the common phrase "he isn't my cup of coffee"? A topic that may be is worthy of further investigation.02/07/2017 #46 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#45 I like comments that I just don't know what to respond to. This one of yours @Sara Jacobovici falls under this category.
I am thinking and thinking on your statement " I am thinking that the act or process of separating is necessary only when integration kicks in. If left on its own, separation becomes divisive and gets "allocated" out of the process". I am thinking now and I am waiting for an inspirational ideas to cloud my mind. This is a very thorough idea and I am thinking.02/07/2017 #45 Sara JacoboviciThanks for your last comment @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee, much appreciated and very grateful for your mention of me in your buzz. As always, I am commenting after a few reads. Of course a comment can't do justice to the depth of your insight. I will make it easy on myself and use your concluding statement as my beginning. You write: "The more we understand complexity, the more we tie this complexity with adjustment of processes the more successful we shall be." The conscious awareness of what is taking place around us and its dynamic interaction with what is internally taking place is the active ingredient that will enable us to "understand", "adjust" and "succeed". Your buzz made me stop and think about the difference between separating and dividing. I am thinking that the act or process of separating is necessary only when integration kicks in. If left on its own, separation becomes divisive and gets "allocated" out of the process. Always, so much to think about and to take in. I will pause for now and look forward to our future exchanges.02/07/2017 #43 Sara Jacobovici#41 Thank you @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee. All I can say is that I get so caught up in your work and the discussions it inspires that I don't even realize that I am doing it until it is brought to my attention. Thank you for the many opportunities you provide for thought provoking exchanges.02/07/2017 #42 Sara Jacobovici#29 Love your comment @CityVP 🐝 Manjit. I believe your thought process is an example of "diverging into the intricate complexity". As well I appreciate your added dimension into what I call the language of creative thinking, when you write, "Metaphor helps us ground complex thought and so I see metaphor as a way of converging to what we know in comparison."02/07/2017 #39 Sara Jacobovici#17 Dear @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee, I am beyond words. Here I am, enjoying my "process" of reading a Dr. Ali buzz, which means also scrolling down to read the discussion. I remember a line from @CityVP 🐝 Manjit's comment and then I see it quoted in your reply, tagging me to bring it to my attention. Then I move on to read @Deb 🐝 Helfrich's comment and ask her the question if what she had said in her last line of her comment could be considered a definition of "adaptation." Then I read in your reply to Deb's comment, your perspective of her comment incorporating the idea of adaptation. I just had to share this "process" that has taken place (and I am still not finished reading). I have to confess, I did have my coffee first before I started engaging.02/07/2017 #37 Sara Jacobovici#14 Hi @Deb 🐝 Helfrich. I just finished commenting on the directions of complexity and process so insightfully described by @CityVP 🐝 Manjit, saying that I imagined that the direction for either can change depending on the interaction in the moment. Then I read your experience of the directions as being opposite in nature to that described in Manjit's comment. I also want to highlight your last line, "I dwell in complexity in order to devise a new process that suits a specific niche." I wonder if that can be one definition of "adaptation"?02/07/2017 #36 Sara Jacobovici#13 Right on it @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee! I had to read @CityVP 🐝 Manjit's line a few times as it, literally, "moved" me. This definitely makes sense, but my gut reaction is that the description, "With the complexity view one has to zoom outwards and in the process view one can zoom inwards"., reflects a snapshot of a moment in the dynamic interaction of us humans in the world. The reverse can occur as a result of another interaction. I don't imagine either to maintain one direction.01/07/2017 #33 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#29 I hope that Dr. @Vincenzo De Florio and Dr. @Milos Djukic would read your line "The actual science outlined in this buzz diverges into turning the coffee cup into a fractal. In the fractal we can look for patterns that is self-similar but in the metaphor we look for meaning that a metaphor may unpack for us". Fractal coffee in which we zoom in and out on hour coffee and see what we haven't seen before.01/07/2017 #32 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#30 @Deb 🐝 Helfrich- Astonishing mind and no wonder you extracted a huge wisdom "Decide to step into the magnificent capacity of all life on Earth or stay submerged in our current world of non-organic structures". SO eloquent and I shall be surprised if you don't expand on this great idea.01/07/2017 #30 Deb 🐝 Helfrich"an hour glass where we [...] are physically the meeting point in the middle between the vast cosmos and the vast quantum."
That is an astounding metaphor, especially in conjunction with "Converge and diverge at the level of the known is as narrow a parameter as operating in visible light"
We humans have done so much to structure our world, when we look historically. But we've achieved just a tiny fragment of the infinite that truly surrounds us.
For me, right now, it all hinges on the fulcrum of one decision:
Decide to step into the magnificent capacity of all life on Earth or stay submerged in our current world of non-organic structures.
As I've decided to shout: "I DEMAND A LIFE-CENTRIC WORLD"

Great inspiration28/06/2017 #39 Tausif MundrawalaIntially our pain leads us to unbearable and excruciating one where we feel that it's never going to end but that pain slows down slowly and gradually it makes us strong to question what the damn is pain. This pain leads us to change directions or if pain leads us to that direction than it becomes easy to chart our path towards success. Thank you for this wonderful buzz,@Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee28/06/2017 #34 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#33 If we look back n history and whom e call disabled achievements we shall be sorry for our modest contributions. The "Dean of Arab Literature" the Egyptian Dr. Taha Hussein became blind when he was only two years old. One of the greatest musicians who passed away three years back was also blind.As you say blind people can see what we fail to. When they are seeing we are blind. Mind you dear @CityVP Manjit these comments from you and few of @Louise Smith will be the basis for my next buzz.28/06/2017 #33 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#32 Do not forget that there were New Testament words such as "they have eyes but they do not see, they have ears but they do not hear" - and that on any given day half of the Earth is in light and the other is in dark. A blind genius is someone whose eyeball does not function but in the black space that is blindness, the blind man is not blind when he can see greater things in life that we cannot see. In seeing the blind man as disabled we continue to see life as a square thing where we place people in boxes and need these compartments to categorize people and find comfort in this conformity, rather than be in the sphere of greatness we live in.28/06/2017 #32 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#30 Dear @CityVP 🐝 Manjit- keep writing and I keep my mind busy. If I tell you that I have three buzz ideas from your comments on this buzz I shal be understating reality.
You wrote "All media is the creation of someone's vision but not all vision is media". Immediately, you brought to my mind a presentation that I wrote on Unequal Opposites.
Now, you provide me with a great example of what I mean. The eyeball has a ball shape regardless of the shape of the eye. I wonder if the focus of the eyeball is affected by its surrounding (eye shape) and what factors will affect the performance of the eyeball, besides its surrounding. Al I can say is that your comment leads me to the freedom of asking, wondering, searching and seeking knowledge. Your probing comment has turned my eyes into new possibilities.28/06/2017 #30 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#25 Dear @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee, no matter what particular shape each of our eyes are, the eye is always a ball and that ball is either connected to the media it see's or the vision that feeds conscious existence. Our Earth is a ball there are no square planets only square rocks. We have certainly never found another Earth, never mind a Square One.
This eye ball either feeds the brain of control which is our external existence or it feeds the brain of freedom which is our internal choice. For me this is profound as anything I can think, the measure of which is always the profoundness of thoughtless existence or simply thinking about life rather than creating value that is life.
Somewhere along the journey vision becomes control, and that is the only sadness we see in our world, the happiness is our ability transform vision into a life that values freedom.
All media is the creation of someone's vision but not all vision is media - vision is either based on all our yesterdays or it is the laser of now, etching a new future, new ways of thinking, smarter ways of being because freedom is our freedom to think, have vision, and add value to life.
Great vision creates great media but it should never substitute greater vision - and that is the challenge called leadership. We can either lead for control or lead for freedom. The great leaders will create greater freedom because their brain is a ball, their eyes are ball and with in this ball the great game of life plays out just like a marriage - better or for worse, in sickness and in health.28/06/2017 #26 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#24 In reality you are a co-author of this buzz @Lada 🏡 Prkic and I therefore find it difficult to respond. However; I paused on this segment of your comment "But I've always remained true to my own course and never felt the need to change direction. I've always listened to my heart and my intuition". For me, I did superficially change direction, but now thinking about it I actually changed methods. Instead of using my scientific background to research chemical molecules I am now more into researching human molecules. I only realized this to a much brighter state because of your comment.28/06/2017 #25 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#23 If I claim that I don't feel sad because of the truth in your words @CityVP 🐝 Manjit then I shall be lying. "so the irony is that in this state we are not focused on spreading our branches and roots, we become merely object of the media owner". This is one example from your comment of what I mean.
I find myself drifting in to a river because of your comment. You wrote "There are many people who are driftwood just being carried by the river of media". I am not in the river media. I am in a different river flowing with some new thoughts because of your superb comment. Again, you wrote "our round peg is the human eye and the square hole the media we fit that eye into,..." Now, I find myself asking how about people with eye shapes other than rounded? Some people have protruded eyes, others eyes that are upturned and others downturned eyes. Are these related to the shape of our mind eyes? Are those people with more rectangular-like eyes fit more in the square pig?
Finally, @Sara Jacobovici may find this part of your comment relevant to her buzzes on Monday Talks!
You kindle my mind Manjit.28/06/2017 #24 Lada 🏡 PrkicI'm so glad that my response to your comment has served as an inspiration for this thought-provoking post. It made me think about my path of life.
I am on the same steep and narrow pathway I had chosen many years ago.
The path went over many mountains and hills. It sometimes went through a dark woods. But I've always remained true to my own course and never felt the need to change direction. I've always listened to my heart and my intuition.
There were some detours off the path that kept me moving forward when I encountered obstacles, but these detours brought me back to the same trail again.
I respect the path of others. Some chose to take a new direction in their walk of life. But I think, and this is something life taught me, that we are still able to grow although keeping the same direction.
However, never say never.
We develop through the whole life. When we reach the top of one mountain, life takes us to another. I'm now standing at the top of the mountain of my success. Perhaps my heart will tell me it's time for a change and show me a different direction. :-)28/06/2017 #23 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#19 A round peg can fit a square hole but what we do not see is that our round peg is the human eye and the square hole the media we fit that eye into, whether it be a television screen or a always-on cell phone screen. This inevitably brings me back to the conditioned (if not mentally sedated) lives many commercialized lives lead. I am not excluded from living this branded and mediated existence and also partake in the very same conditioning, sometimes my round eyes are also transfixed into the square hole of media.
What we learn from your buzz is that even tree's talk to the fungi because the tree is aware of its environment, which is exactly what we are not aware when our attention is focused on a square hole - a square hole that has a black hole kind of force and attraction. Yet even as I think this, I am aware that the brightness of the screen (which is actually a rectangle - so we use the word square as a metaphorical approximation) has a backdrop to it, which is the room. With a cellphone the backdrop is whatever environment we happen to be in when we are engaged on that screen. If we notice the backdrop and the screen as a window that supports our awareness, then we are legions smarter than any tree, otherwise we become a lump of dead wood.
There are many people who are driftwood just being carried by the river of media and brand so the irony is that in this state we are not focused on spreading our branches and roots, we become merely object of the media owner. Tree's are not slaves, they are living contributors to the act of life giving yet we are the one's who are rooted. So the moral here for beBee is not to turn more people into wood but to focus on spreading the roots and branches so meaning and not media or even madness flow through them. Servant leadership is not a top-down model of the universe, servant leadership is a part of this tree of life.28/06/2017 #21 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#20 Yes, walking the goat path enriches us with its challenges and the joy of surmounting them as well the gained experiences. I fully concur with you @Harvey Lloyd. We can hover over the path, but walking it is what makes us more wise. The new products deprive us mostly of this joy as they take us on a helicopter trip.28/06/2017 #20 Harvey LloydThe goat path of life is difficult. We live in a world that wants us to believe that we can use various products and services that grant us instant gratification. Even with enough money this lifestyle is so unfulfilling.
The difficulty of the goat path is where character is built and gratification becomes wisdom. With each branch of the path new wisdom and understanding is found along with a deep sense of joy.
The one who rides the helicopter to the top of the mountain vs walking the path is a challenging branch. But i know the walk along the path will give me new beginnings i would never achieve within the helicopter. Although both people would bring home similar pictures of the event the one who walks the path will bring a rich and shareable experience.28/06/2017 #19 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#15 Very true and maybe we need to use upside down term more often @CityVP 🐝 Manjit. Sometimes we try to fit a "rounded " ball in a square pig in a round hole. The funny thing is that the opposite "square" ball in a rounded peg" is funny. How can a ball be square?

The way I currently engage with beBee is I tend to read the buzzes of people I follow, but these sometimes get overlooked in the volume of posts.I like the linking of relevant posts in comments. I don't tend to "hang out" in hives, at the moment. Appreciate you sharing this great buzz with me.12/04/2017 #99 Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand AmbassadorI prefer to focus on more than one of anything.

I feel that a willingness to view complexity from multiple perspectives can allow a greater understanding of emergence. We could all make time to focus on what's outside 'the box', even nothing is something.
Thanks again Ali, great to be here.. at last!02/02/2017 #93 siraj shaik#62 from realties of life sharing an experience from early 1990's. One of my friend applied for a sales person job (matching as per qualification and experience), showed us the ad. Taking a peep on info, asked him why not apply for "Area manager or Team lead". Response from other friends to my suggestion was more negative. Following day I accompanied along, evening after the interview finding an opportunity greeted the General manager and asked if it's ok to share few words and evaluated the team tree maybe the sales in a month should be of this value? and if my friend fulfills the total sale equivalency (quantities equal to 16 sales persons "under the area manager 4 Team supervisors and under each team supervisor at least 4 salesman" then will they be willing to offer my friend Area Manger position? GM agreed and stated conditions (prove it and get placed in position along with an additional bonus. Else not a single Paise will be given nor expenses occurred will be paid). My friend signed the appointment took advance (gave copies of my license and moped document plus myself signed a promissory stamp paper as security). Later next day asked some friends to join us to accomplish sales, rather taking four weeks to lessen time in a week. Guided them with what and what not's, showed the market places. Within four weeks six months sales had been achieved. Used simple strategy by focusing on market. At that time I was just out of college and was working in a factory.

Comments11/12/2016 #3 Pamela 🐝 Williams@Ian Weinberg, I LOVED BOB THE BLOB. The whole concept of experience imprinting and thus changing the mini-Bobs, the whole idea of ever changing quanta the moves from physicality to energy space was fabulous reading and so aligns in how I see life, energy. As I read this I thought of a recent video live buzz by @Andrew 🐝 Goldman; where he reference the law of energy conservation; "The law of Conservation of Energy states that "Energy cannot be created or destroyed." In other words, the total amount of energy in the universe never changes, although it may change from one form to another". The imprinting of experiences would lend towards an explanation of how that energy changes form.

Comments12/12/2016 #66 Joris PlaatstaalI must go off topic again.
Although I think my former remarks where on topic.
Here comes the question again. Why do we seem to waste our intelligence with trivial arguments about the origin? It is a nice hobby, I agree. A nice hobby.
I too like thinking about my origin.But all that thinking is not going to change to way the world operates.
I feel I can better utilize that amount of thinking power I have for the good of our world.
Knowledge of all the forces in universe can not prevent the existence of selfish idiots. Knowledge does not rule our world, the selfish idiots do. And they do not need 'knowledge'. They just do what they want and get away with it. And the thinkers think.
I think I am an off-topic guy......12/12/2016 #65 Walter SmithMax, I am the optologics dude. The premise of optologics is that humanity functions on nine fundamental affinities (assessing quality, manipulating resources, planning strategies, garnering attitude, gaining perspective, building language, expressing ideas, valuing knowledge and accessing information) and that we all have the same intellectual assets to work with - perception, thinking, doing and knowing. As we live we use our assets to engage those affinities. As we engage in those affinities we are constantly faced with four dilemmas - static (knowledge of reality), dynamic (thinking new knowledge), political (thinking what to do), and economics (doing what is realistic). Optologics is the practical side of holism. We need to connect what we do and say to a bigger picture. Gravity and electromagnetics constitute the chicken and egg of the universe, the BIG picture, the dance between matter and energy. The human mind functions on visible electromagnetic waves. In that way it is the mystery of humanity and has a spiritual aspect to it. This makes it subject to all form of speculation and manifestation. #6412/12/2016 #52 Rick DelmonicoTruth is the highest energy state of the system.

I am always curious where life takes me. I think that is the ultimate freedom, it does not get any better. Embrace life, not fight it.
Will I take part in this discussion? I don't think so.
I discovered it is better to life live than trying to understand it. I mean, you can spent your whole life, all your years trying to understand life and forget living it.
I can use all my intellect trying to figure out who and why I am. In the end it is of no importance where I came from, where I go is important.
Sure, I love letting my mind wonder about the mystery of, say, gravity. But I can not discuss it. I work in the field of nanotechnology. Everything is elastic in that roam. Very difficult to measure anything.... And that is only 10 to the minus 9th of a meter. I have a gut feeling that our existence bubbled out of the roam of 10 to the minus 35th of a meter. In that roam we can never be sure. We will never know.
But I do know this. I fail to see the relevance of our society. We are, in my opinion, living, well existing, in something we all do not want to be part of. Or am I wrong? Is it only me?
I really can not care about the reason what started us. I care what we could make of our future, and that of my children and grandchildren. I think I can better use my intellect to work on that.

A few years ago I was made aware of the term Down the Rabbit Hole through a conversation on another network.

But he did not connect Gravity with Consciousness, no some one else did. I forgot his name...... Sorry, I must be living in dementia.11/12/2016 #29 Frans van WamelTo find the rabbit, blow up the warren. If science can not work out what consciousness is, then, obviously, go and search for it, when IT appears. (Or should I say that the other way around: Look for IT, when it appears.) If science in general were to look when consciousness is actually present, instead of assuming that consciousness is generated chemically within the brain, it becomes evident that there are two conflicting conditions. My conclusion is that consciousness arises when there are two conflicting sensory inputs. Since most people seem to have the same problem, the innitial rationale must be at fault. Just as when the earth was flat. I argue that Consciousness enters the body. If consciousness and gravity were to be on the same continuüm, then consciousness would indeed add weight to your body. (Do carry weight on your shoulders have meaning?) Similarly, as the information of wanting to know where the rabbit might be or is going to be weighs down your exploration capabilities, information carries weight. Thinking is hard work.

Comments20/12/2016 #13 Brian McKenzieWhat is my idea worth ? Health Care / Social Care is 1/5 of the GDP - surpassing the Defense Sector - and 1/3 of the budget (when they write one) - It takes ObamaCare off the table. And it is not just an 'idea' - it works overseas - the paths and plans are live and functioning. What's it worth to burn ObamaCare to the ground - 'Priceless'.02/12/2016 #3 Renée 🐝 CormierIt's funny you should post this today. This morning I was thinking about someone I know (and I have met many others like this) who has a wealth of opportunity before him that could easily be turned into something very profitable, but somehow this person can't get out of his own way to make anything happen. I don't know if it is fear of failure, failure to clearly see the vision or just plain laziness, but people like that frustrate me. It seems to me that the holy trinity of success consists of idea, opportunity and drive (idea + opportunity + drive = success). The three must work together and drive is the most important factor of all. It makes me crazy to see people deny the great gifts of opportunity and creative ideas.

Comments29/10/2016 #48 Deb 🐝 Helfrich#47 Wow, @David Navarro López - that is such a powerful question! "if we didn't have them [fear & pain]. Could we then have the sensation of "God like" , and make it even worse? "
My gut reaction is you just explained why our minds come equipped with a sense of separation and limitedness. No person is equipped to make decisions for everyone when in possession of a singular body and unique set of life experiences. We are meant to participate, not feel in charge.29/10/2016 #47 Anonymous#40 I agree entirely that fear is hard to define because it has too many nuances, and they vary depending on the individual. One thing is clear: it is common to the whole species. To deny it is to deny our own nature. Which in my opinion, it has nothing to do with freedom. It is up to everyone (fully compos mentis) allowing fear to be a limit. The "sense of freedom" is as well different for every individual. Some might say that freedom is about of being able to choose what you want or you think. But as long are not absolutely responsible for the options to choose from, we are still enslaved by the options we get.
Above all, I am not too sure if we have fully evolved from apes, and if so, looking at what humankind is doing to its environment, well, I wouldn't be that proud of it. We still have too short years of life to be able to evaluate it, but the trend is not very flattering. Considering that we still have the mentioned "limits" of fear and pain, i wonder what would happen if we didn't have them. Could we then have the sensation of "God like" , and make it even worse?29/10/2016 #46 Sara Jacobovici#40 Definitely @Peter van Doorn, the meaning we give to a feeling, experience, or role makes all the difference. The good thing however, is that, no matter how individual or subjective the meaning, there is enough in common for us to allow for identification and in this way still be able to get the support of being part of a community.29/10/2016 #44 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#42 To my best knowledge I believe @Sara Jacobovici is writing a buzz on WPD Factor. I only hope she would read your comment dear @Deb 🐝 Helfrich before writing her buzz. Yes, it is precisely this availability of lag time between between stimulus and response hat we may change.
Amazingly, Deb you wrote " Thank you @Ali Anani for hosting what I consider a modern day virtual salon"- I feel you expressed my feelings to all of you here who made this salon a place to be in.29/10/2016 #43 Sara Jacobovici#36 "Awareness releases the stronghold of resistance, and space is opened up, enabling positive thoughts of "Wonderment, Passion and Drive", and we move into healthy, positive momentum. This is vibrant, healthy thinking..." All key concepts and words @Irene Hackett. I am adding this to the design I am trying to put together of the immune system (with appropriate credit given of course). Thanks Irene.29/10/2016 #42 Deb 🐝 Helfrich#25 #27 @Peter van Doorn - I really enjoy reading your comments. I identify with the conundrum of being strong and the result being that others require you to be strong, such that it removes the freedom to be weak/human on occasion.
If we don't feel our emotions as they arise, they do become invisible to us and we suffer drastically, unaware of what is driving our behavior.
The thing is fear will always occur when we are alive. It is in the famous pause that @Sara Jacobovici talks about often, via Viktor Frankl's space between stimulus and response. That is where we really want to target the implementation of the WPD factor.
It is easy to sit over a leisurely coffee on a rainy Saturday morning and use WPD. It is very hard indeed to shift the impetus to close down, hide, or react when fear occurs. And that is precisely the moment when if we have to interrupt our response and look for a new way to react or new possibilities to enact. Then we have a chance to thrive.
I am so grateful for the discussions of this community. Thank you @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee for hosting what I consider a modern day virtual salon.29/10/2016 #39 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#36 Thank you dear sister @Irene Hackett and for sharing your beautiful thoughts. In fact, I had an opportunity to extend discussions on same with both dear @Sara Jacobovici and @Deb 🐝 Helfrich on their latest buzzes. I have confidence they shall enjoy your thoughts here and add to them. Thank you for taking the time to share your valuable input.29/10/2016 #38 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#32 I do appreciate your comment @Peter van Doorn. If you would inspect the image and the listings of emotions in its bottom we may see the blue cluster. Under this cluster we tend to move between different stages of fear and their differing intensity. The borderline between them is fuzzy and moving from one state to another is easy since we move within the same boundaries of the cluster. So, fear is hard for me to define.29/10/2016 #30 Anonymous"We contaminate our emotions with many negative ones such as fear. " Well, fear is inherent to our human nature, is the direct responsible of our survival, is the alarm when a danger appears, and it resides in the amygdala. The Urbach–Wiethe disease damages the amygdala, and no fear behaviour is a clear symptom of it. I would say that we contaminate our emotions if we allow fear taking control, whilst we should always pay attention to its signals. Brave or courageous people have fear too, but they take control and do what they have to do, despite their fears.28/10/2016 #26 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#25 Dear @Peter van Doorn- brilliant comment and it is a story on its own. Freeing self from fear brought you other responsibility- dependence of people on you for protection. Truly as thermodynamics says we get nothing for nothing.

Yes, we need to remove of the fear of the uncertain from our lives. SPot on as this is the first step to moving on.28/10/2016 #23 Anees ZaidiDear brother @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee Good day!! a very timely post indeed. We, specially living in this region, are living in the rippling effect of fear. The fear of unknown. Once we embrace the inevitability of this unknown we come out of this fear effect. Death is an uncertain certainty. Once we embrace the inevitability of death the fear of death is removed and we live and spend an enjoyable life. Once we accept 'Every soul will taste death' we are free from all fear and illusions. It is the element of fear that makes 'Wonderment' short-lived. Your closing statement ' self-determination forms a high enough barrier to contain action by negative emotion' is the next step after we remove the fear of unknown from our path. Thanks for sharing your brilliant WPD factor.27/10/2016 #22 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#19 ABsolutely stunning your comment is dear @Harvey Lloyd. Your concept of ideas before and after action resonates so strongly with me and leaves me with lots to think about. The value of internal demons shall remain positive and accept the trial and error consequences is ably discussed in your comment. More to discuss on this soon.27/10/2016 #19 Harvey LloydThis is an awesome concept @Ali Anani i would think that a step 1 to this might be the "concept" of success. Emotions are dynamic and changing based on internal and external forces. Ideas are subject to internal forces, in most applications, because we have not yet taken the idea to action. WIthin action, even those who shared your wonder, now can become the triggers to emotional contamination.
What strength will we have when these external forces attack. Although i paint a negative picture of the attack, in reality it is a normal trial and error in the public domain. I have found and i also believe many others have found, when the idea generates from a "service to others" model, our strength emanates from the end goal.
The public domain and its pressing trial and error processes are merely inquiries into the how. If the questions enter the why zone we can answer them through the benefits your success will bring to others.
I believe the attack of a rolling out concept is inevitable. So would should keenly understand our motivations to insure we can sustain the WPD. Internal demons being in control, a prudent review of our motivation/success benefits we can insure no one externally will wake our inner demons.

Comments11/01/2017 #41 Harvey Lloyd#40 "....then experiences, then meaning, then expectations and then emotions." You described it very well with this statement. I do agree they coexist. But in the world of self help it is incumbent that we look at the expectation if the emotion is not gratifying ourselves. Not to separate but rather to establish a cause and effect inner monologue.
In my world of understanding we can observe something and render a discussion. The language would be different within our inner monologue of searching for greater existence. I find it interesting how folks who write about such things slip in and out of the observer role within their writing. I try to write based on the inner monologue perspective. Not as an observer.
Our inner monologue, if we are trying to seek new understanding, has to eventually come to motivation. Expectations are a motivating factor in our actions, and may produce an unintended result that turns on an emotion. Certainly not the exclusive motivator but a large one.11/01/2017 #40 Sara Jacobovici#39 Much to think about @Harvey Lloyd. One thing that stands out for me is when you write, "Emotions come from our expectations of the world which are designed through our life experience." I see a different timeline in this process (developmentally); first emotions and expectations co-exist, then experiences, then meaning, then expectations and then emotions.11/01/2017 #39 Harvey Lloyd#38 This is what makes passion so nebulous. When you explain it to another it doesn't seem quite as passionate, its a personal ideal.
Passion is a force of energy. Energy is something that can be broken down into components. But i can't break them down for you, only myself. There is no recipe that works for everyone. But the ingredients are still the same.
I noticed that you placed an S at the end emotion of your definition. Implying that passion is a result of.... not in and of itself a single emotion. This is my point. Emotions come from our expectations of the world which are designed through our life experience.
A challenging discussion. Similar to how do you describe anger. We can discuss the outward appearance of the emotion as felt by others, or....we can discuss the components of the emotion. A third description of anger is my personal feelings and judgement, what it caused in me.
Not sure we need to define passion so pointedly. Our interface with others is where we need to understand the motivation of passion in someway so we can make a decision of whether we want to join.11/01/2017 #38 Sara Jacobovici#37 This is why I like our engagement and exchanges so much @Harvey Lloyd - they're so dynamic. Not at all predictable. In this comment I am struggling with the notion of passion as "a container of emotions, skills and knowledge." For me, passion is something we feel, not as an emotion but as I mention a hybrid of emotions. I am having a hard time imaging passion holding anything else but emotions. But.....I am willing to try. I'll get back to you. Thanks Harvey.11/01/2017 #37 Harvey LloydPassion is a very nebulous topic of discussion. I enjoy folks who are passionate like you @Sara Jacobovici. But when it comes to the description of what makes up passion it becomes a quest for "who am I". Passion is a container of emotions, skills and knowledge. To much of any one ingredient is like a bottle rocket, heavy anticipation, the lighting of the fuse and the 3 second exhilaration, followed by whats next.
Our passion container should have a good recipe, if you will, of the three ingredients. Its not necessary to have the full range of each ingredient but we do need to know where to find the missing ones.
With the correct ingredients we can secure a growing recipe where we share the passion and grow it not only in ourselves but through others also. One of the biggest killers of passion is when our container is easily broken. The ingredients are still there but we cant collect and organize them anymore. The paradox, the recipe is the designer of the container. The passion container is challenged when we share the passion. Keeping in mind this recipe of passion has been simmering in you for some time. This is not so when it comes to the share. I might need time and throw a little skepticism your way during my merging with your passions.
Passion that includes the goals designed around win-win and can be pointed out to others will usually survive the skepticism.27/10/2016 #30 Lisa 🐝 GallagherPassion can run so deep @Sara Jacobovici. I agree with @🐝 Fatima G. Williams you don't need to be an expert at something to make change or do something different. I even find passion in the simple things, such as the birds chirping right before the sun rises, the tides of the ocean and the smells I take in when near the ocean, out in the forest- these things remind me of the innocence of a child. Pure wonderment we had within us as children. If we can be aware of those passions that stirred us as children, I believe it's always possible to expound on those passions. Many of those scents, noises and senses allowed me to fantasize or dream as a child, I still find myself doing that and yes, I act on some of my dreams as I'm able.27/10/2016 #27 Pamela 🐝 WilliamsAh, @Sara Jacobovici and @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee, Again rises the question of passion. What is my passion from where does it come from. Every since I wrote that piece I still occasionally contemplate the question. I think you're correct in your thought that it is a hybrid emotion. I can't associate my passion to an emotion, but instead emotions seem to arise from the passion. A perfect example: today at work I was facing a tedious task that was going to take hours/days but then that 'exploring' part of me kicked in and I went on a search for a 'quick fix' you might say (at least less tedious). Before I knew it that internal motivation, that passion that drives me to discover arose. I was on a personal quest and when I'm there, in my mind world, I feel elated. Then I found the fix and I turned hours/days of tedious work into minutes. I felt like I was Columbus and I had just discovered the New World. It didn't matter that the 'fix' already existed in the software I was using, I discovered it for myself, I learned today, my mind expanded just a little. Whoopee!26/10/2016 #26 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#25 Great @Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand Ambassador.

WilliamsDon't our emotions also dictate our decisions? Having a butterfly effect on all the actions that follow.
It's so amazing to learn about how our thoughts have such strident effect on our bodies.I do know that the human body is complex but this buzz has expanded so much on how a simple signal can cause chaos and harm us in unreasonable ways.
When trees are so intelligent and avoid dangers through the signals. Does human mind fall prey to negative signals and comments or actions.19/10/2016 #43 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#39 Great examples dear brother @Anees Zaidi. SO, you come back from your vacation with great examples. I am sure you shall cover few of them in a buzz. The experiments on the memory of plants are astonishing. Being a living body as we are no wonder plants share many of or attributes.19/10/2016 #40 Anees ZaidiHarvey Lloyd, trees do respond to trauma in their chemical communication. Sage brush in North America and willow & oak trees in Europe 'warn' their neighbors of insects attacks by emitting pheromones, which raises the production of bitter tannins and other predator-deterrent chemicals in nearby plants. Similar happens with Mopane trees in Africa where the predators are the elephants.
I agree with you Dr. @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee we may take many lessons from the plants. We need to love them and adapt them.19/10/2016 #39 Anees ZaidiDear brother @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee, your scholarly writings are always great stimuli for us to learn new things, know more and sail in new waters. During my recent holiday break I had the chance to lay my hand on Richard Mabey's authoritative and very interesting book 'The Cabaret of Plants'. The book is globe-trotting exploration of the relationship between humans and the kingdom plants. The learned author shows how flowers, trees, and plants have been central to human experience. While I still have to cover the book's 400 pages the chapter that attracted me the most is 'Plant Intelligence'. Exploring the history of the sensitive plant 'Mimosa pudica', attempting to find satisfactory explanation as to why the sensitive plant shuts its leaves in a dramatic fashion on being touched, Mabey takes his readers to an interesting experiment done as recent as 2013 by Australian ecologist Monica Gagliano.
Gagliano did 'habituation' experiment on sensitive plants (repeated dropping on plants from a height of six inches every five seconds. Each training session involved sixty drops). While in the beginning of the experiment all the plants shut their leaves in thner. But some started to reopen after only four or five drops in subsequent sessions. Gagliano repeated the experiment, using the same 'trained plant', after one week and then one month. Again they ignored the drop stimulus, suggesting they had 'remembered' what they had learned. Surprisingly, the Bees, in similar experiments, forget what they have learned in forty-eight hours. It is astonishing how a plant, without any organ comparable to brain, could store or process memories.17/10/2016 #36 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#35 I am preparing a buzz on plants movement and including some examples that you mentioned in your rich comment @Praveen Raj Gullepalli. I shall also mention some of the work Indian scientists did. The issue of what stimulates plants and how they respond just shows how less we know than some plants. Your lovely comments motivates me to continue with this journey and I am truly grateful to you.17/10/2016 #35 Praveen Raj GullepalliAnother beautiful buzz Dear @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee I read somewhere that negative thoughts and feelings manifest as disease, and I have been looking for a book that connects emotion and attitude to a specific disease, for long! I had mentioned Dr.Bose's earlier to you Sir...Dr. Jagadish Chandra Bose..."His major contribution in the field of biophysics was the demonstration of the electrical nature of the conduction of various stimuli (e.g., wounds, chemical agents) in plants, which were earlier thought to be of a chemical nature. These claims were later proven experimentally. He was also the first to study the action of microwaves in plant tissues and corresponding changes in the cell membrane potential. He researched the mechanism of the seasonal effect on plants, the effect of chemical inhibitors on plant stimuli and the effect of temperature. From the analysis of the variation of the cell membrane potential of plants under different circumstances, he hypothesised that plants can "feel pain, understand affection etc."16/10/2016 #31 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBeeI believe this is your first comment on my buzzes @Susan 🐝 Rooks, the Grammar Goddess and you rock with it.

Thank you @CityVP 🐝 Manjit for the inspiration Close08/10/2016 #1 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee@CityVP 🐝 Manjit= I discovered one important idea from this buzz. When an author (bee) of a buzz evolves, because of a comment the author of the comment evolves as well. I am truly honored that my simple comment on your previous buzz dear Manjit resulted in this hugely relevant buzz. The movement away from separation thinking of OR to AND opened huge possibilities to reconsider minds and how they may operate.
I look at your pyramids as tetrahedral of new thinking and these two tetrahedrals are fractal because they operate at all scales and spaces. That No Mind is freedom is also greatly linked to vivid imagination where we may imagine things beyond reality. Is this imagination a form of meta-imagination or what I am not sure about, but what I am sure of is the opening of novel ways for us to think.
- 05/10/2016This is my first "integrated" piece on social media. beBee is the first place where I am sharing a "personal" post on a "professional" site. This is a reflection of how beBee is successfully bringing the parts of me to a whole. @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee, your influence crosses many boundaries. I was happy to include a Dr. Ali quote in this article.Sara Jacobovici – Beginning a New Year, when “I” becomes “We”israelseen.com Sara Jacobovici – Beginning a New Year, when “I” becomes “We” I hate starting any work with the word “I”, yet this story is about the process that “I” have been going through in my “I”dentity journey. Although my journey has been ongoing, it isn’t...
Comments05/10/2016 #4 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher@Sara Jacobovici, what a beautifully written article about "I" and how "I becomes We." You wrote: "My “I” is anciently rooted but growing and thriving in my present ground. I don’t need to “let go” of my past in order to be in the present and look forward to the future. “I” exist in a relationship with myself, others and my world. Everything I do comes from and goes into this relationship." This makes so much sense on many levels and I think our past plays a pivotal role in shaping our futures. Thanks so much for sharing this wonderful article! PS: I loved Ali @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee metaphor about Trees.05/10/2016 #1 Deb 🐝 HelfrichI really enjoyed reading this, @Sara Jacobovici. This time of year really feels new to me and this quote speaks to me as a necessary ritual in any well-lived life:
"I am conscious of Shabbat as a day when I need to cease to interfere and allow what is to be and what is not, not to be."

Comments09/10/2016 #62 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#61 Dear @Sara Jacobovici- what a great insight "So we are not just discussing being on the edge but whether we are on the internal or external side of the edge". I can't wait to read about your thoughts. My intuition you are hitting a treasure. I was thinking of @CityVP 🐝 Manjit last buzz on which I commented and I feel this ideas takes us even a step further. Great thinking09/10/2016 #61 Sara JacoboviciDear @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee and @Irene Hackett. I have not forgotten the encouragement to develop the concept of being on the edge of a triad. I'm working on it and studying the comments from you both. I was working on something focusing on duality and integration and thought of the possibility that the duality of the edge, one side connected to the sides that enclose the triad, the internal side facing the triad and the external side, although connected with other edges, the external side faces away from the containment produced by the triad. Could this external boundary be the edge of integration formed in the contained internal area, or integrated area, where we do not experience the integration? So we are not just discussing being on the edge but whether we are on the internal or external side of the edge; a duality holding a triad containing the integrated area formed by the internal side of the edge. Just updating you both with some of the thoughts going through my mind. I hope I am not travelling too far beyond the original concept. Please let me know.05/10/2016 #53 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#52 "...On the edge in order to live fully and love deeply"- stunning quote from your comment dear @Irene Hackett- Yes, avoiding being on the edge is a recipe for missing many beauties in our lives. Thanks to this 'edge" that brought this super comment from you my dear sister.04/10/2016 #43 Sara Jacobovici#21 #25 It's scary how well you know me @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee. With @Deb 🐝 Helfrich's comment I thought of the spaces referred to by Mozart, “The music is not in the notes,
but in the silence between.” And Frankl, "Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom." With @CityVP 🐝 Manjit, I had already replied before I read your comment.04/10/2016 #42 Sara Jacobovici#18 "The irony of our age is that we are becoming more innovative as a human race yet also less adaptive." Great line @CityVP 🐝 Manjit. I agree 100%. Although less adaptive, it is interesting for me to witness what forms the adaptations take on. They seem to reflect the dissociative state and sensory diminished environment which produced them.
