    #29 I think you're onto something William. Presidents and the media have been diverting our attention for many many years. Additionally, they have been dividing us for many many years. Could it be that Trump is just the culmination of years and years of division and subversion?

    We now we have an ex-president, two miles away from the White House, building a wall around his mansion, and recruiting a siditious army. I would be careful making Trump the boogieman in all this. Blind faith is dangerous for sure. Party affiliation is BS in my opinion also.

    #31 I haven't planned beyond Civil War and full Dystopia / Anarchy / Collapse - I figure I die in the process. meh. F*ck it - F*ck it all. I am not so connected to this little experiment that I place more value on it than the scheduled line item of the coming carnage. And as for my Credibility - you might want to check the news for the detentions and 'protests' in Bishkek today - arriving right on f*cking time; just as scheduled. The people that pay my bills were very appreciative of the point papers I wrote in December predicting the event - and naming names. See you when the Sh*t hits the fan - it is already on deck.

    I don't care where you sit politically. I'm more concerned for you if you can look at Trump and not see someone whose extreme narcissism has finally gotten the best of him. It's one thing for the country to have shifted to conservatism, but this is something else again and it's located somewhere to the right of the Tea Party. But I don't care about the politics, what I care about is the insanity I am seeing every day.

    We all complain about Trump, forgetting he's really a symptom. Yes, we've got oligarchs, and people who have been marginalized, and an entire world is wondering what happened to "The Land of the Free." The freedom of any democracy is postulated on the people and on the people they elect. To say "We got it wrong this time," is cold comfort, but not unredeemable. Democracies allow for mistakes, just as they allow for corrections. Where America goes from here will really define how strong—or how weak—it is. For history buffs, nobody expected in the early days that America could free itself from Britain. It happened because strong minds prevailed. Nothing is stopping America from strong minds prevailing again—perhaps this time with both men and women at the helm of change, defining where America goes next. Hatred hasn't worked. Oligarchs haven't worked. A new structure needs to form made up of people who don't promise change through hatred and fear. America must realize they can't just think of themselves. They can't ignore people and environment and distance. Distance used to be America's great buffer from all threats (wars included). Distance doesn't exist anymore. America has to be a world partner, a leader but also a follower. Trump is trying to isolate—not just other countries, but himself through his war with the media. All is symptomatic of a "go it alone, leave us alone" mentality. He accepts enemies in the process (new media, countries, etc.) This doesn't work, and he'll prove it doesn't work. What we're about to see is a redefinition of democracy and I predict hard years ahead as Americans learn democracy is EARNED. This should be interesting.

    #24 The irony of your fantasy is that it embodies some truth, for example, that the struggle is not between Dems and Republicans, but is a class conflict between the Oligarchs and the rest of us. Unfortunately, as with most paranoid fantasies, it contains much distortion of reality -- which is that those whom you call Obama oligarchs are restrained by at least paying lip service to rule of Constitutional law, whereas the American and Russian Trump oligarchs are like Mongol hordes sweeping across the political landscape wreaking destruction to all semblance of social justice and concern for "the people" of this Republic. As with many conspiracy theorists, you see the same facts as the rest of us; you just interpret differently to fit your own preconceptions. With the same confidence as that which you displayed when making predictions of a post-election coup d'etat. Sorry, but I stand with @Chas ✌️ Wyatt on this one. He, however, has to live with the consequences of his and his fellow travelers not voting this past presidential election -- as unfortunately do we all.

    #23 You are assuming we believe the media, I for one do not. I do not need the media to explain to me the complete incompetence of Trump, as he makes that very clear each time he speaks. The only thing more alarming than this is his adviser is even more unhinged than he is, and does remind me of Goebbels in far too many respects. Trump is concerned only with corporate autonomy from the law and his own inflated ego, throwing fits when he thinks the press is picking on him. It is nothing more than a bad reality show to hold our attention, this is plainly obvious. We should be asking what are they diverting our attention from, and how big does it have to be to warrant this extreme in risk of dividing the country?

The end goal is still the exact same. I stand by my earlier predictions Martial Law on US streets, pure collapse of the Dollar.

Calm down, everything is going to be alright. Sorry for the dissenting viewpoint. May I suggest that you do some research on Joseph Goebbels, the Chief Nazi propagandist, who espoused to blame others for that which you are guilty of. I'm neither a republican or democrat, and all I hear is the democrats regurgitating the globalist media mantra of Trump's a Nazi....I feel sorry for folks who are suffering so much anxiety over the propaganda put out by the Hollywood news.

    #20 In fact, Harvey, I don't agree that Faith (capital 'F') is involved in the circumstances you describe. Confidence and self-confidence, yes. Faith no. We build self-confidence from birth. When we struggle to learn to crawl, then walk and climb. Then from that time forward, we add to that each time we confront and obstacle and successfully overcome or cope with it. I didn't have the self-confidence to sail across the Gulf of Mexico from NewOrleans to the Florida coast when I was ten, but several decades later, after I had been sailing and navigating for more than twenty years, I did. For at that point, I was sufficiently experienced to be able to adapt to just about any emergency or obstacle. IMO, to say that doing any given thing for the first ime requires Faith that one can do it, overlooks the cumulative effects of learning and experience. Thank you for joining the conversation. Cheers!

    27/02/2017 #20 Harvey Lloyd
    Would you not agree, that before the habits of your environment are formed (Your sailing skills/habits formed) that, faith is a part of the equation? Now i am not using the spiritual definition here, but the fact you first have to develop the habits required for your success in any environment. Put me in Alaska and i would freeze to death. We develop habits through experience and experience exposes us to risk. WIthout some faith would you venture out?

    I believe the word faith has become one of the words that has alternative definitions from the perspective of the speller. I do believe we "assume" a lot when we embark on new journeys. No matter how well we plan and prepare. Through taking certain things on faith we can prepare for undetermined eventualities.

    I am not the accomplished sailor you are but operating a few miles off shore fishing i had faith in the creed that boats, looked after boats in distress. I followed and towed a few myself.

    #16 I would actually love to get to the bottom of the empathy thing. What drives it? I have suffered? Is that the right word? It feels like the right word. Suffered with it for years. By drives it I mean the cognitive processes and the neuro processes. There doesnt seem to be much cognitive thought to it. I just feel emotional pain spilling off people. Almost like a tangible thing. I get happiness as well, so I suppose I get a little joy as well.

    27/02/2017 #18 Phil Friedman
    #10 Devesh, those who are not passionate about the way of Reason mistakenly identify Reason and Rationality with Logic. While Logic as the study of forms of reasoning is a sub-class of Rationality, my point is that it does not make up the whole of Reason. Intuition and Creativity are also components of Rationality, which needs to be seen as the synergistic product of Rational conscious thought, Intuition, and Creative inspiration and action. And when we view intellectual activity in that light, we can, I submit, find ourselves becoming passionate about Rationality. Cheers!

    #16 now we are talking, Prophets for Profit! Hahahaha. Amazing how many church leaders and self proclaimed Prophets live in luxury really. I think the whole clairvoyance thing and even the medium and fortune telling thing is pretty interesting. I have yet to see it proved, but I think there are stranger things than we know on earth. My position would be balderdash! While waiting for some validated study data to prove me wrong. This is actually the easiest time on earth to be a medium or such like. Open source intelligence means that we have the ability to know much about people

    #15 Geoffrey, I don't deny that some people are strongly empathetic, even to the extent of literally feeling other people's pain, whether physical or psychological. Whether that phenomenon is a natural one having to do with sympathetic excitation of neurons or some such, I have no clue. Where I personally draw the line is with self-declared Empaths who claim to be connected to an underlying Universal Force or reality, especially when they claim to be additionally mediums, channelers, and new-age Prophets and sole arbiters of fact and truth. And even more so when such prophets turn to profit by asking people to "lay some bread" on them so they can continue their critical work of bringing peace, harmony, and universal consciousness to the world. I also have a bone to pick with the Emotionalists who offer such false prophets succor and cover by pushing the view that Reason and Rationality necessarily exclude Intuition and Creativity. For such a view implicitly attacks the way of Reason, for no legitimate purpose that I can discern. Thank you for joining the conversation. Cheers!
    Geoffrey Cooling
    27/02/2017 #15 Geoffrey Cooling
    I have faith, however, i tend to be a reasoning logical man who bases opinions on validated fact. I dont like the word empath, but I tend to feel others emotions strongly. Especially emotional pain. It actually hurts me. I think i may be an oxymoron or possibly a thesis of diametricity! And you are right, i cant imagine why logical thought limits creativity.
    Phil Friedman
    27/02/2017 #14 Phil Friedman
    #13 I agree, Pascal. What perplexes me, however, is why the proponents of Emotionalism frequently feel the need to deny Reason, whereas the reverse is not the case. Those who choose the way of Reason rarely if ever discount the potential contributions of Intuition and Creativity, just the a priori dogma of the self-declared Prophets of Emotionalism. (Just thought a bit of intellectual diatribe would raise the blood this sleepy Monday morning.)

    Pretty hard to disociate any of them maybe I would say they weight in differently in the equation based on one's experience, even in sports on any given day emotion can be the denominator that lead to a win or a loss... and there is probably a good reson behind it :-)

    That's a pretty interesting way of saying that you are a common sense person and make decisions based on a combination of intuition and experience. I can relate to that, with a dash of third party inspiration thrown in for good measure. This is how we have been able to write and make more than 20 rather long format posts flow smoothly. We are using our intuition and experience and pushing each other with inspiration. I would say that most of the stuff we all create works that way, supernatural forces not withstanding. This is all in the vein of my typically long winded way of logically concluding that this is a very interesting post. Hope nobody gets pissed about it. But the world is not all smooth sailing and let's face it, you're making some serious chop here.

    #9 true . Emotion and intuition can fascinate rationality in many people.
    But rationaility seldom makes people emotional. Few people appreciate logic in an emotional way.

    Then people tend to focus on people as a word and not the observation

    Phil Friedman
    27/02/2017 #9 Phil Friedman
    #8 I am not quite sure, Devesh. I do notice that few if any adherents of the way of Reason denigrate either Intuition or Creativity. But that many proponents of Emotionalism denigrate Reason and Rationality. Why is that? I hesitate to speak my mind, for if I did, I would set off what @Jim Murray often calls a sh@t storm. Cheers!

    #2 Devesh, I agree, in the main, with what you are saying. I think some of the anti-reason vs anti-intuition stuff comes from a misapplication of what we know about left brain vs right brain functions and dominance. I think the correct way is to view the brain (and the intellectual function) as a whole that can encompass all of conscious reason, intuition, and creativity. Thank you for joining the conversation. Cheers!

    I can think and i can feel. Why suppress one for the other. How about seeing feelings as an automated process to trigger thinking or save the time and the trouble to act wherein intuition picks up rational inputs to achieve a decision following an internal process based on the type of feeling while rationality can focus on the uncertainities.

    If i think i am made to feel guilty for lacking emotion, if i feel i am labelled as stupid. Actually we all do both but surrender to the perception and put two parts of ourselves unnecessarily in conflict.

    I dont see these choices coming up everyday, but i see people behaving as if they are programmed to chose with no alternative and then struggle.

    Eventually, The easiest of things become the hardest and if we mix these up with the casual lies we tell people, it all becomes a mess.

    Then we ponder on rationality vs emotion because we are unwilling to face the consequences of setting things right inside.

    Rationality gets the blame because we are conditioned to justify things rationally.

    Those who accept doing somethig because of intuition are labeled stupid or much worse crazy . Few understand the circumstances.

    #32 Every word in your comment filled my heart with joy dear friend @CityVP 🐝 Manjit. Absolutely, I meant t that this buzz be "imprinted with the face of my daughter". You captured my emotions with this great observation.
    I tried to run some water to make the equations alive. I refer to your writing "leaving just bare bones of mathematical equations - whereas the mathematics of beauty are in our children". I live what you say here. Yes, we need to make mathematics more of beauty than just dried and lifeless equations. This is one reason many people are fearful of math.
    I tag dear @Sara Jacobovici to bring her attention to your mention of her.

    This is quite a sensational buzz dear Ali Anani that is absolutely special for the simple reason that you share within it the most precious aspect of your life. I can say that without need of a single equation to describe emotional states, because this buzz is imprinted with the face of your daughter.

    Yes, you have mentioned Sara before and these were memorable associations also because it reinforced just one more aspect of why Sara Jacobovici is an important spirit that has touched your soul outside your immediate family.

    I have shared pictures with me and my grandson online but that I did because 2 year old's grow up fast and they physically change and this change of facial recognition preserves the idea of privacy - and I say idea - because in this world where technology can parse even the semantic constructs of each of our paragraphs, the only real privacy in this world is silence. In reality this privacy battle is being lost.

    I do think Chip Conley has done a nice job with the Emotional Equations but it is only as nice as what our educational system has done to Mathematics. What our education system has done is rip away the beauty in mathematics leaving just bare bones of mathematical equations - whereas the mathematics of beauty are in our children - in the very moment cell division begins to occur and the mathematical fractals start producing life.

    The mathematics of beauty are far cry from the mathematics of answers. We have been taught in our educational system to look for answers and not to appreciate. So it is I appreciate the picture of your daughter because the respect is life itself and that is when we don't need words to describe love - it is already encoded in our DNA and in the flow of meaning into and out of heart.

    Yes, yess and Yes- I say to your comment. Sara didn't stop loving me. In fact, she loved me more. However; her hate of me traveling abroad, her love to find me near to her and her fear of me getting hurt while away caused her fear. Like you wrote " IMO once we love someone unconditionally there's no turning back of that love. It's like a toothpaste squeezed out of its tube". May be Sara's worries at the time (as she was less than five years old when she expressed her innocent passion) was the tube would soon deplete of its toothpaste.
    I admire your mind and wisdom dear Fatima.

    Dear Ali Anani You've touched base on a very important topic Love. A emotion that is so easy to kindle and develop but so difficult to stop using.

    Do you really think that your daughter can stop loving you. I don't think so. IMO once we love someone unconditionally there's no turning back of that love. It's like a toothpaste squuezed out of it's tube.
    Love is pure and eternal and forever.

    We may stop talking or meeting or even disliking a person we love due to their actions. But deep down the heart that loved will always love them even after death.

    This is my experience with love. And this is such a wonderful buzz. I think when one starts to feel a like the way Sara did in the case of any relationship. I believe or feel a little distance between the two people will do the trick. I call it giving space to each other. Creating the distance will actually bring us closer than before. And that fear finally disappears. After all Fear is NOT EQUAL to Love As the weightage of love has the power to drown the other.
    I love Louis Chart on Love - Beautiful.

    #18 @Jeet Sarkar- yes, the reactions are complex and they are not as simple as they appear on paper. Not only they might go through a complex transition, but also we might not know the reactants. Which emotion reaction with another emotions. II said that the equations main value is their helping us to think deeper. .Thank you Jeet for your deep thoughts and sharing them here

    Interesting and intriguing post sir @Ali Anani ! Great share . The equations of emotions are quite interesting. I just recall a simple experience when I was in school, first time when I came to know about the photosynthesis , I read 6 molecules of carbon dioxide and 6 molecules of water in presence of sunlight produces 1 molecule of sugar and 6 molecules of oxygen. But interestingly, when I promoted to higher standards, I found that actually photosynthesis is not as simple as I read earlier. It is a bit complex equation where calculation of energy is an important part where Ferredoxin plays a key role after chlorophyll and water and much more. Similarly, the equations of emotions of your post as well looking a bit simple but in reality we must add the emotional stress (either bad or good) as well. However, a wonderful post. I enjoyed it thoroughly. Thank you for sharing this buzz.

    #10 while my response is beig awaited i highly dislike the idea of giving oversimplistic responses to wonderful buzzes and comments filled with deep understanding and experience.

    Still, what comes to mind is this,
    We are actually being prepared for crisis and thr wrong emotions are part of the training and motivation.
    We simply fail in the simulation and pass the tests. Problem is that simulation is for prolonged periods of time and hence we return to bad habits despite having achieved success. For now , here i stop.

    On the other hand, no disrespect to dogs, i had written something about feelings a while back called "i do not follow". Pardon me for not posting the link as the format has changed and im operating on a touchphone.
