    #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.

    #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.

    Wow @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.

    Dear @Ali Anani have many ideas spinning around, but I will share just one at the moment about population and the ascent of feminine energy in both men and women. in Japan there are young men who are called “grass eaters” - they are like plants and have no sexual desire.
    This will help contain population. Perhaps our DNA is changing as innately we know there are enough people in the world and we do not have to populate for survival of the human species.

    #17 Control is an illusion and who has the authority to set the tolerances

    Population explosion happens because of a lack of self discipline.

    Bruce Lee "Simplicity is the key to brilliance.

    The reason why we over complicate pass the simple expression is to make ourselves look better in the eyes of others and show off to insist we are the expert.

    The more complex yo make it the more recognition you get for being the only one who can explian it because of how complex yo made in order to show off.

    Here's the problem with consensus. Every study shows that the mass keys to the lowest intellect or to say

    This why I agree with a quote that says a wise man makes his own decisions, an ignorant man follows public opinion.

    Dear @Ali Anani. Simplicity is required,but it should be controlled.Population explosion happens because there's no birth-control.Simplicity in the side of complexity can also be controlled,if our ideas are put in the right framework or the right context.When in brain-storming sessions we accept a winning idea and give up the others.it may seem as a win-lose situation,while on the contrary,all will finish up winning.We reach complexity because everyone try hard to apply his own filter which reflects his background or his area of expertise,and this at the end distorts the idea or complicates the solution.Kant was right when he quoted"Thoughts without context are empty."Oliver Homes also quoted"I don't care at all about the simplicity on the side of complexity;but I would give everything for the simplicity on the other side of complexity."I know of no more encouraging fact than the unquestionable ability of man to elevate his life by conscious endeavor-H.D.Thoreau.Dr. Anani,if we let simplicity pass,it will go unnoticed and can get consensus easily,this what we have learned from our ancestors.

    #9 I have written a few pieces in where I go over what the condition of being human is.

    In simplest terms it is condition of asking why and never being satisfied with the answer unless it meets our criteria for the right one.

    We insist it must be more complex otherwise we feel stupid for missing how simple it really is.

    The definition of life varies based on the life being lived. and the desires of that one life. It is the desires that we have that tell us what we think life is.

    The more complex the desire the more complex the life to meet said desire.

    What is life in the simplest terms.

    Its the action of being. anything is a state of being is experiencing life.

    After that your life is what you and the rest of us all create in the shared reality.

    After that it becomes about defining your life and your existence through the ego expression of self which is the things we attach emotion to that define who we think we are.

    After that we spend way too much time trying to validate who that is through discussions in social media. ;)haha

    #10 Yes individually i believe we can advance within the Bebee environment. But to your post and the unsustainability question of population, i would ask is Bebee or any social media site furthering the forest or rather moving us away from consensus of sustainability?

    More a point of discussion without any data to support either side. I would state that social media has allowed for unique groups of beliefs to gather within a globalized platform. This is an observation of the question.

    My statement of the forest ruling the tree was pointed at the society we are creating will eventually dictate our actions, as it has in the past. Unsustainability will drive the survival need back to the forefront. From the strife exposed during our elections to technology replacing the consumers job, it all seems a bit irrational.

    We seem to be missing a common purpose that would define the forest. A forest is an ecosystem whereby each element is beneficial to the next. Bebee, social media or humans should share in a similar ecosystem. Unfortunately when we speak this way the word conformity comes into play and the needs of the individual espoused. This ecosystem discussion should not exclude the ideas of any, but rather bring the forest of ideas into a common purpose of a self-sustaining forest.

    I can't state with empirical evidence what is unsustainable but i suggest we all know what it looks like.

    But alas, @Sara Jacobovici #9 "....and then we go off again, one idea leading to another, one question leading to another; what is life?"

    Dear @Ali Anani, your buzz has produced the energy to spark the process of iteration of Ideas. I expressed to you that I consider myself a concepts person and that equations are out of my comfort zone and definitely your equations are way out of my league. But you have been very generous and supportive and allow me to see that I can enter this zone of equations in my own way. You write, "We don't have to be right or wrong as much as learning together and developing the simple equation." Thank you. I am in that process of looking at what started off as a simple idea and experiencing it branching off as a result of the dynamic exchanges through your buzzes and discussions from your readers.

    In this buzz I pick up on the discussion of predictability and surprises. One of the things that makes you such a great observer and teacher, Dr. Ali, is that in spite of predictability, you are open to, invite and are excited about surprises.

    If we knew it all from studying the function and simply create equations to communicate that function, we would truly be in a box without an exit. But it's the surprises that allow us to navigate through the Mandelbox and exit to see the light.

    #8 @Harvey Lloyd- if we extend your analogy to beBee a bee represents a tree and forest equates to the forest. Are we on the edge of survival or have we moved beyond as we are "because if "the higher callings of intellect". Yes, studying one bee is needed, but also the collective actions. The beBee society shall eventually rule the bee even the bee shall advance by interactions with other bees.

    #1 #3 #5 #7 @Max Carter, in a formal research endeavor, conceptual definitions would need to be clearly presented. I have no doubt that you see your equation DESIRE=LIFE as the only equation that makes sense, yet since we are biological, organic, sensory beings that create meaning from our sensory experiences, what makes sense to you conceptually does not equate with what makes sense to me. No doubt you can produce examples of your equation. I have many examples of individuals whose desire was extremely strong and viable but could not sustain life....as we know it.... and then we go off again, one idea leading to another, one question leading to another; what is life?
    Harvey Lloyd
    28/11/2016 #8 Harvey Lloyd
    Human behavior can be reviewed from the individual or the masses. Like the trees the single tree can be studied and we can gather information, when we look at the forest though, we must look up from the individual and quantify the whole and its purpose or goals.

    Is the forest sustainable in its current mode? From an individual perspective i believe the answer would be yes today, tomorrow is another story. The forest will eventually rule the tree.

    Our purpose not too long ago was quite simple, survive. Conformity was expected as a part of an integrated society that required each others skills and knowledge. With technology and greatly enhanced productivity, we have been able to separate ourselves from the edge of survival. We now seek higher callings of intellect.

    A smart forest is a good thing but not when it elevates us above the fundamentals of survival. Many great nation-states have come and gone over the millennia, all shared this very common thread of collapse. Thanks for the post @Ali Anani

    In life I lacked the ability to go to a higher learning institute and yet though my desire to learn I attained wisdom and understanding to be able to on a peer level with you and other academics.

    Without the ability to have the education to give me a piece of paper to give me credibility my desire created a life that allowed me to achieve the understanding anyway and have the confidence to express myself as if I did have the piece of paper.

    My desire created my life.

    DESIRE=LIFE.

    @Phil Friedman and @Milos Djukic thought you might both be interested in this book shown here. The author explains in laymen's terms six of the numbers that control our universe.

    I quite literally dreamt-up the the equation √1¼ + ½ = ϕ, I have observed a sprouting and growing tree whose branches grew with that formula in precision. This made me believe that math and physics will prove a Theory of Everything, though, perhaps, only after our collective dust has become part of a star one day.

    Évariste 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.

    #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. 😊

    #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.

    Milos Djukic

    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.

    #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=IKmQW7JTb6s

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/

    Really interesting buzz, @Gert Scholtz, but the 'Spock' in me says that "it's not logical". Since, of course, logic has little to do with how we behave, perhaps the bottom line is don't estimate it, Google it? 🤓

    Interesting read @Gert Scholtz. Sales promotion Is an example of anchoring effect where promotional items on discounted rates are prominently displayed at the shop's entrance to bring in the prospective customers.

    @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!

    A 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 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!

    Really interesting articles @Gert Scholtz, thanks so much for posting. I've certainly encountered on multiple occasions with regards to empathising with other people's perspectives that it trumps that of my own.

    This is fascinating @Gert Scholtz. I would have loved to attend the class you guest lectured and dive into the secrets of how to give the impression that your product is a bargain (other than offering it at $9.99). Do you mentor entrepreneurs?
