Comments10/02/2017 #39 Deb 🐝 Helfrich#38 Exactly, @Ali Anani. We are squandering our time on hundreds of meaningless daily decisions and missing the crucial ways all of these choices are the root cause of the destruction we are doing to our own health and the demise of the planetary ecosystem.
"Time to pause and think and even if we don't have the time we should make it."10/02/2017 #38 Ali Anani#37 @Deb 🐝 Helfrich- your comment is timely, precise and brings new points to the discussions so far. You wrote "We are propagating drastically unintended consequences when so much human energy and potential is expended in so many varieties of products...". This is a valid point. Today I commented on a post on LI by @Sara Jacobovici about time. I mentioned in my comment that we have much less time to choose from a widening range of choices such as products. Tis leads to loss of focus and having less pause time to make choices wisely. Now, you even increase this tension by mentioning "In any big box store 80%+ will have dire warnings about swallowing for a product solely intended to be used in our mouth!?!? Where shall all build up of tension shall lead us? Time to pause and think and even if we don't have the time we should make it.10/02/2017 #37 Deb 🐝 HelfrichThis was a buzz worthy of letting roll around the bumpy incline of my brain overnight, @Ali Anani.
"As we increase the tension of having more choices or alternatives, the more likely we move towards chaos."
I feel this all the time, and really appreciate the story that @Steve Brady shared about toothpaste. IT IS ABSURD.
We are propagating drastically unintended consequences when so much human energy and potential is expended in so many varieties of products, mostly created by a handful of large companies, that are actually harmful despite the pretty packaging. In any big box store 80%+ will have dire warnings about swallowing for a product solely intended to be used in our mouth!?!?
Why are we allowing the marketplace to be about sustaining its crazy structure, rather than as a tool to enable humans to live fuller, healthier lives?10/02/2017 #35 Ali Anani#34 Again, this is a very relevant point, @Jared Wiese (+VALUE & RESULTS). I wonder if taxes were increased gradually in small doses would have ended differently. Unfortunately, decision-makers tend to prefer reactions and changes in noticeable percentages. That might yield to more disruption than ever imagined.10/02/2017 #34 Jared Wiese (+VALUE & RESULTS)#32 Glad you liked it and that it was relevant :)
Your post also got me thinking about the one-time tax rebate that Bush did after the 2008 Great Recession. Did it have the expected benefit, getting people to spend more? I believe it had the opposite effect - people saved it as they were stuck in homeostasis - afraid of losing their jobs and not having enough money.
"President Bush also authorized the U.S. Treasury to mail out a one-time tax rebate in 2008. It was unsuccessful in preventing the financial crisis."10/02/2017 #32 Ali Anani#30
Great comment, dear @Jared Wiese (+VALUE & RESULTS). I watched the first link- a 10 minutes video about motivation. THis is a timely video and adds support for this buzz. Monetary motivations work as expected, but suddenly they work in the opposite direction by lowering productivity. Human, human behavior is strange. Will check the other link today. I am full of gratitude to your comment, Jared10/02/2017 #31 Tausif MundrawalaIt is upto us how we see the situation ? Is it from the parallel axis or perpendicular axis, where this means this and that means that. We should always see the problem from the prism of founding solutions rather than spending time studying only the theories behind those problems. Again a mind stimulating buzz, Sir Ali Anani.10/02/2017 #30 Jared Wiese (+VALUE & RESULTS)Great post, Dr. @Ali Anani!
It inspires some good thought. And more thoughts.
One that came to mind was Dan Pink's DRiVE on worker motivation for the work that pays for those extra taxes - or anything for that matter:

I have just commented one of your old buzzes on wisdom and understanding and I found the buzz quite an enjoyable read. Honestly, writing in simplicity reaches the heart faster. In your comments here and your mentioned buzz both "entered" my heart for the same reason. Great thinking expressed in simple words. This formula brings BOTH understanding and wisdom. You did it.10/02/2017 #24 Max🐝 J. Carter#22 #23 Thank you @Ali Anani I had a friend on Facebook say something today about the real Shamans of the world and the responsibility that goes with it. It's one I take very seriously as I allow what I say to come out with my greatest fear being giving the wrong guidance. Your words my friend show me that all the work I have been doing my entire life and do every day is worth it.10/02/2017 #22 Ali Anani#21 Dear @Max🐝 J. Carter- this time your comment is s clear, transparent, explanatory and truly deep. I agree with you on all fronts. You wrote "Their ups are small and their valley is low.
To truly improve tings for all one must think of all as one makes ones choices and think about the impact to the sum.10/02/2017 #21 Max🐝 J. CarterLife is a wave a sine wave. Peaks and valleys and for every up there is a down.
It's the same basic concept behind the Karmic law of reaping as you sow.
There is no control.
It's a shared reality and what one does or chooses will impact the sum.
Many have their choices taken away by others.
Their ups are small and their valley is low.
To truly improve tings for all one must think of all as one makes ones choices and think about the impact to the sum.
Without doing this one will make choices that will crush the lives of others regardless of intent.
The road to hell paved with good intentions often is the hell we create for others because we are to concerned with our own lives and the impact to us without caring or giving ourselves a list of excuses the most popular lie being we each are responsible only for our own lives that allows to be inhumane and inflict suffering in the name of our own life and success.

Comments02/12/2016 #41 Steve Brady#40 Dear Ali, thank you for your encouraging reply. Your thoughtful posts have certainly been a catalyst for fascinating discussion. If I may also encourage you: the way you genuinely interact with commenters on your posts is a blessing. You are gifted with the ability to articulate wisdom and at the same time engage with your readers to search for further wisdom.01/12/2016 #40 Ali Anani#39 @Steve Brady- amazing comment with its potential and practical examples.Led it and read it few times. Each time I ponder on this part "From my growing understanding of Fractal Perspectives it is from this state that we can see beautiful symmetries emerge and iterated patterns of coherent relationships emerge". Well, I see the patterns emerging when I read a comment by you. SOon, I am responding in a buzz to your very great comment.
While reading this comment you really got me curious to read your comment on my following buzz. I feel you have so much to add:
https://www.bebee.com/producer/@ali-anani/two-illusions-don-t-make-a-fact#c1901/12/2016 #39 Steve Brady#33 Thank you, @Ali Anani. I too remain curious, as a life-long learner from published works, but also the "textbooks" of human beings in inter-relatedness. When I was trained in Restorative Justice, we were urged to interview thoroughly so as to aim for "no surprises". Thorough empathic conversations with affected parties is so often therapeutic in themselves, however, I am still amazed that every "circle" we formed in order to facilitate meetings between stakeholders, seemed full of potentialities...ranging from complex abreactions and fearful responses to wonderful unscripted reconciliations. One important key for me is that whenever people are gathered in community, even a private Restorative Justice meeting, is an open system, rather than a closed one. A second key that is important for me is to not fear "chaos". No one wants mayhem of course, but as I learned from reading "A Different Drum" by the late Dr M. Scot Peck, true community can emerge from the "chaos" of people feeling safe enough to lay down their facades and pretences, and be "real". From my growing understanding of Fractal Perspectives it is from this state that we can see beautiful symmetries emerge and iterated patterns of coherent relationships emerge. The lesson for me is to encourage potentialities, to be open and resist habitual control. Instead, be more like a true scientist, an explorer of truth. Herein lies the essence of respectful and powerful peace making.30/11/2016 #37 Ali Anani#35 Your snowball example is simply genius. I know you wrote this comment partly from your own experiences, dear @David Navarro López. What a lovely illustration this is! Yes, we have nor control on the path of the snowball. es, we may have no control over the stones that may change the trajectory of the snowball, but we may always try again. Like you said, an oak tree doesn't produce pears. I feel you may extend this to a great buzz. You added a new meannig o the behavior of snowballs. We always need a fresh start.30/11/2016 #36 Ali Anani#34 #34 Dear @David Navarro López- this is a gem and your observation struck me too to the bones "One thought it shocked me to the bones, is that the day I stopped looking for explanations, is the day I started understanding life". SOmetimes we get over-stressed trying to understand and by doing that we are actually reducing our ability to understand. When things become too complex to understand, this is the time to relax and only then we may think of new approaches, new ideas and new thinking. There are so many things in life that we still don't understand. That is why I introduced the term "passionate curiosity".30/11/2016 #35 Anonymous#32 Part 2 But one thing was clear to me. (Again, a Spanish saying) You can not expect pears from an oak. So in order to promote the best scenario for both bees and hives, the only way I have found which is always certain, is to influence every action and ideas coming out with the highest human values. Here is, and only here, where we can have a part of control and responsibility about how things are going to develope, but just at the initial stage. You love analogies, and I like to look at it as a snow ball rolling down a hill. One can't know how it's going to end, but if one makes a big ball of "positive snow" and throws it aiming it in the right direction, it is more than probable it will end as you wished. Or maybe not. And if not, we can not run down to the hill and try to put away the stones that modified the trajectory of the ball. The ball will go faster, and stones are countless. Much better, make a new ball and aim it differently. If you are lucky, you will succeed. If not, better keeping "enhancing the ball" (which is under your direct control) rather than loosing the time asking why, as we can't be in two places at the same time.30/11/2016 #34 Anonymous#32 Part 1 Dear Ali, you know I am very interested in human behaviour, and I have been digging on it in any possible way a long time. One thought it shocked me to the bones, is that the day I stopped looking for explanations, is the day I started understanding life. Because as you are pointing out, "Humans interact and ideas may become heavily populated and their growth may be limited by our capacity to fully comprehend them" The feedback to our actions (or ideas), the more reach they achieve, the more complex they become. Being a practical man as I am, and having in mind the mentioned interacting between bees and hives, I switched from trying to understand the process, to trying to provoke the process in a trend it suited the mutual benefit fo bees and hives, due to the unavoidable fact that our energies and capabilitiy of comprehension are far too limited to reveal the ultimate consequences that feedback might cause modeling and transforming the original inception of it.29/11/2016 #33 Ali Anani#22 9 @Steve Brady- your comment is a source of huge curiosity for me to find more from your experience ".what a thought provoking post. I have found many times that a simple, single social interaction, personal or virtual, can lead to pleasing complexities". Your examples shall be mind-provoking and I sincerely hope you share dew of them with us.29/11/2016 #24 Max🐝 J. 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.

- 26/10/2016Évariste Galois (French: [evaʁist ɡaˈlwa]; 25 October 1811 – 31 May 1832) was a French mathematician born in Bourg-la-Reine. While still in his teens, he was able to determine a necessary and sufficient condition for a polynomial to be solvable by radicals, thereby solving a problem standing for 350 years. His work laid the foundations for Galois theory and group theory, two major branches of abstract algebra, and the subfield of Galois connections. He died at age 20 from wounds suffered in a duel.

WIP. Shall share it soon.25/08/2016 #1 Ali AnaniDear @Praveen Raj Gullepalli- my friend you buzzed my heart out (to steal the expression of the adorable @Pamela 🐝 Williams). This is a fractal buzz and by this I mean of beauty. The beauty of of your dedication, the beauty of your thinking and the beauty of your perspective to fractals. You wrote "Where the Fractals interface smoothly, they merge to form a seamless fabric of tangible, harmonic expression and being. Where they do not, there is Chaos". This requires deep thinking, but I love your saying how the intangible leads to the tangible.
I am so glad that I have my name mentioned in your beautiful post. Equally pleases I am as we both wrote about fractals today. See my friend how your buzz integrate with my buzz of today "The Fractal AMbassador" and you shall be pleased.

Comments11/09/2016 #19 Lada 🏡 Prkic#18 You are right, Ben. I am just saying that these expressions of Φ are the solutions to quadratic equation Φ^ - Φ – 1 = 0.
Phi also occurs in geometry of a regular pentagon. Connecting all the points of the pentagon and forming 5-pointed star we have triangles with sides 1 and Φ, and angles of 36 (18), 54 and 108 (54) degrees.
Based on the relations between sides and angles of these triangles we have following expressions for Φ:
Φ = sin (54°) x 2 or cos (36°) x 2
Φ = 1/ (2 x sin 18°) or 1/ (2 x cos 72°)
Perhaps we can create a new hive about golden ratio, Fibonacci numbers and other related subjects. 😊10/09/2016 #16 Lada 🏡 PrkicDear Pinto, exact value of ϕ is (1+√5) / 2, i.e., 1.6180339887...... .

I remember standing before the chalkboard utterly fascinated as I completed a rather complex proof. "Oh," I said ecstatically to my professor, "where will I ever use these in my life? A theorem for milk or a bar of soap?" "Think further, Miss, think further,". I remember being mesmerized that there WAS a "further". As I read your clear and captivating article and all the degrees and angles and beauty of precision and overlap of disciplines washed over me, I was warm inside, thinking of the possibilities in quantum physics (my personal favorite) and the miracle of possibilities depending on the realm. And with a deeply satisfied sigh, I reminded myself to keep your article, the stunning video, the concept of overlap, particularly in applying the geometric perplexities and simplicity to nesting to the discipline of human relationships. I came away muttering to myself, "Think Further, Miss. Think Further. "25/09/2016 #59 Lada 🏡 Prkic#57 Thank you very much!

Comments13/08/2016 #16 Edward Smith#3 @Gerald Hecht, of course you know he math! 😂 I read Chaos when I was in my twenties. Extremely fascinating. I agree with your point. When I take in the beauty of fractal art, I do not think about the mathematical process. The math which creates such beauty is another art to behold all unto itself. However, I find the center, the point of initial contact and imagine the beautiful synchronous expression from that single point in space. To me, that is he beauty of art and why it is vital to keep supporting arts education. Studying the arts provides the fertile ground for creative thought, which is vital to further advance science.13/08/2016 #15 Gerald Hecht#11 @Vincenzo De Florio Thank you for the kind words!

Thank you very much @Anees Zaidi. Some thoughts already published elsewhere here again...I used to write about self-similar concept. Fractals can be exactly the same at every scale (self-similar and self-replicative), but also nearly the same at different levels. Only in the first case they are exactly self-similar. But also there are the following possibilities: Quasi Self-Smilarity, like the Mandelbulb, which I use as a picture in my Twiter account (partial copies), Multifractal System (with the different fractal dimensions) which corresponds to a society where individuals could be completely self-similar, but with different fractal dimensions (like Anees Zaidi and Milos Djukic in this particular case:)), and finally the most obscure aspect connected with Statistical Self-Similarity which reflect the most current state of social structure in which randomly generated fractals (humans) have a chance to make a new Renaissance, which is far from totalitarian single-mindedness as expressed in Star Trek Borg Collective model, Equilibrium movie by Kurt Wimmer, Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell, Kafka's "Der Process" or in "The Brave New World" by Aldous Huxley.Mathematics Documentary | Decoding the Language of the Universe | History Films Mathematics Documentary | Decoding the Language of the Universe | History Films.

Comments28/05/2016 #2 Charles David UpchurchHi, Jeff. This takes me back to my time at MCI/WorldCom (now part of Verizon). When I was a Network Engineer (a remote tester and troubleshooter) at what was called the Global Data Test Center - East, mean time to repair (MTTR) was a primary metric against which we measured ourselves.
- Producer27/05/2016Watch the AnchorGoing back to basic maths at school, you would agree that 8x7x6x5x4 gives the same answer as 4x5x6x7x8. Yet in an experiment where two groups of people were given these two sets separately, those that saw the 8 first in the sequence estimated the...
Comments11/08/2016 #14 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#13 Dear Henri, yes from a personal practice but also to notice unintended consequence and application of practice we may never have assumed as having a dystopian effect, and this is not a formulation to distrust good intentions but be wise about the way a few scrupulous human beings seek personal advantage, where spiritual practice itself can become more egotistical than non-spiritual practice, in short embrace surprise and delight but not be disillusioned by failing to see the hairy arse side of society. http://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2014/01/the-dark-side-of-emotional-intelligence/282720/11/08/2016 #12 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#11 I do have a purchased copy of Robert Cialdini's book Influence and part way in I could not figure out whether I was transforming into a modern day Machiavelli or Rasputin while reading it. Fortunately I got the gist and I was spared the desire for creating an intervention called the Holy Order of Neurolinguistic Programming or delve into the launching of the Master Apprentice of Mindfulness Coaching, both highly motivating ideas that sum up the saying "a little knowledge is a dangerous thing". Yes anchoring is real but just like gaming emotional intelligence tricks I don't know at what point one has acquired enough emotional trickery to register as a professional magician or when to just accept that my self-awareness might just have been anchored as I continue to discover my anchors. Of course we are the good guys so we use our newly acquired powers for doing good and thus observe the "Law of Spiderman" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IKmQW7JTb6s10/08/2016 #11 Henri GalvãoThank you for this text, Gert. Not only because it was very informative, but also your suggestion on thinking of a range - instead of a specific number - is something I'll try to remember more often.
By the way, I guess another way to describe this would be to say that it's the principle of contrasting in action, as Robert Cialdini puts in his classic book Influence.25/07/2016 #10 Gerald Hecht#9 @Ken Boddie Google is ultimately run by humans. Humans, by definition are always "being" in a state of all kinds of anchoring effects with regard to just about every aspect of their lives...@Gert Scholtz examples are just that...little surface scratching glimpses into how biased we are always...it is actually much worse in folks who practice "mindfulness" and other such crap...it's neither good nor bad...it's who we are; balls to bone...it's an interesting aspect of perception. https://katesharpernews.wordpress.com/2016/03/20/book-of-the-week-capture-david-a-kessler-m-d/24/07/2016 #7 Gerald Hecht@Gert Scholtz now I'm gonna be biting my nails for a couple of weeks as I've just prepared lectures and accompanying psychometric/psychophysics demos on this (which I thought were very clever for 18yr olds entering the strange world known as "Introduction to Psychophysics and it's Concomitant Neurophysiological Foundations"...at least you didn't go into the Neurophysiology --uh oh...I prolly shouldn't have mentioned that, another lol!27/05/2016 #5 John WilliamsA way to avoid the anchoring effect? Well, maybe in the example of the car to look for a way of comparing it with the four cars at the same time, although I don't know if there would still be 2 anchors now instead of one. I don't know, this article is making me think about how to take advantage of the anchor effect in sales but at the same time being a better buyer. Great one there @Gert Scholtz27/05/2016 #3 Gert Scholtz#1 @Dean Owen. I guest-lecture on negotiation and persuasion at business schools with a focus on how the mind works. Most of what I teach is based on the relatively new fields of neuroscience and behavioral economics, which I find fascinating. Thank you for reading and commenting!
