Comments15/05/2017 #127 Praveen Raj GullepalliYour senses make you conscious of the passage of time and deploy different strategies to define it. However relatively. Through word or deed. The indefinite and the uncertain are the realm of imagination and formative hypothesis, while the definite and the things certain are the signposts of science I feel, dear Ali. I see more of a parallax than a paradox here. Thank you for the mention Sir!14/05/2017 #126 siraj shaikIn reference to #72 before the news about solar system and possible life forms were mentioned by NASA, maybe @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee was tipped about potential possibility.
#51 Sensory effects within humans, picking vibes from unknown sources? are any of those floating in air. The possible senses as radio frequencies emitance from living forms (prior a point was mentioned in comment space on LinkedIn). (my-tip) @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee if reviewed the workouts (and if by-chance has collective info of interactions) sure to connect the dots unlocking a phenomenon which might have missed or overlooked by chance in research. Opinions and views shared are purely mine. I believe everyone has there own respective perception of perspectives.14/05/2017 #125 siraj shaik@Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee always your posts open doors to a feast of knowledge exchange. The straight talk and no other expression can suppress what's said in #80 "if that one brain goes kaput I become a vegetable".
Considering and focusing on flow of blood within life forms #81 whether it's loop (cyclic), branched or singularity uni-direction flow is the key criteria.
Blood-brain barrier #42 "If brain could talk, sure will convey the message: don't give me more nor less, just fulfill supply what's needed without restricting to every node in my structure".
Salt-water #91 at times pressure plays some hidden role of control factor (effects and affects can be observed due to variations of pressure on water). There's something as such in gut brain relativity.
Point to ponder #62 "integrated and interconnected complex organ with high degree of sensitivity with not just with macro but more of micro connected structural nodes and sub-nodes carrying specific functional purpose with a decree of controlling factors governed by itself and with relativity".14/05/2017 #124 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#121 @Harvey Lloyd- I am reading a great reference on human chemistry. I need to digest it to respond to your superb comment. I echo the comment of @Sara Jacobovici#123 in that "We often tend to be more invested in the search and then may lose the interest once we can see the results of that search". In this case I find myself bifurcating into new knowledge zones with no end at the sight. Bu, the sweet waters of searching keep my interest.14/05/2017 #123 Sara Jacobovici#109 You are right @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee. We often tend to be more invested in the search and then may lose the interest once we can see the results of that search. This is a very human characteristic and "truth" can be keeping its "face" hidden to keep us in the search. I am inspired by you writing, "All I know we shall keep searching for it."14/05/2017 #121 Harvey Lloyd#119 All valid questions but the answers are well above humans definitions of character. Cognitive dissonance is the word you search. When our actions or those of others do not align with our intrinsic values. Do we change our values and keep peace or do we let others know their values are corrupt from our perspective? I offer the third alternative (Steven Covey 7 Habits) and that is what we want from the engagement while each applies his/her values to the same outcome. The outcome can meet the demands of different nuances of the values brought to the table.
I can satisfy my intrinsic why question and so can you when the outcome meets a service need of others.
Dopamine and other body chemicals release based on the intrinsic values you hold. A good time or a bad time can not be determined except if we attached a value to the environment and time. The bank robber has decided that society owes them something and that they are not hurting individuals but rather taking from an institution. With these values we can see instantly the cognitive dissonance i would experience if i participated. Also the bank robber could not find joy in working in a soap kitchen serving others.14/05/2017 #119 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#118 Since writing my last response to you I have been thinking of my next buzz. The main theme is that all humans have the same chemicals. The same composition and then how come they show different behaviors?
I am still researching this topic, but it started to overwhelm me. One question I am asking myself is how our interactions with other people change the chemistry of our behaviors. We know that our bodies release dopamine for a reason.. Now, if we are exposed to the outside world how this will affect us and in turn the chemical reactions in our bodies? Facing a truth that is negating the societal truth is a challenge and it has an effect on us. Why some people have a different effect when our bodies release the same chemicals? Are beliefs connected to the chemistry of our bodies?
The truth is that I am searching for it. I ask myself extroverts are like open system open to the environment. Introverts are more like closed systems. How does this affect their bodies chemistry? You wrote " If these intrinsic truths are great to discuss but in action they fold up into what is best for me, then your permeability statement holds true" Is it the same effect for introverts and extroverts? I know now how much I don't know. I am immersed in new waters.14/05/2017 #118 Harvey Lloyd#117 In the end our opposition or support is usually at either side of this metaphorical barrier. For me to change an internal truth it must be tested and i must be convicted in my own life that this will help me serve better. I cant imagine that too many rounds can be raced before you realize these truths extend past time for the individual.
Always the challenge comes when we test the truths when it hurts. This is usually expressed in taking the "high road". If these intrinsic truths are great to discuss but in action they fold up into what is best for me, then your permeability statement holds true.
You and i discussed a while ago concerning our children and parenting, sometimes our intrinsic truths require us to let them experience something painful. Ultimately we decided that words can warn but only experience teaches.
Choose wisely the truths you will act from spontaneously, as these will install your narrative extrinsically.14/05/2017 #117 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#116 Now the discussions are reaching a new and higher level. The barrier with its physical and mechanical properties and its permeability. Is ir semi-permeable, or blocked completely? Are its pores closed because they are filled with the grains of external truths? What texture does it have? If pores are of widely varying pores size then it shall be "Intrinsically Weak". If pores are similar in size the barrier shall be strong.
@Harvey Lloyd- now we are entering into a new phase of our discussions.14/05/2017 #116 Harvey Lloyd#115 Now you have exposed the real challenge with truth? Does a barrier exist between extrinsic and intrinsic truth? If so what fortifies this barrier? I do not have the answer for someone else but do recognize that in the end this barrier will be our path to success we choose or, if not present, someone else will choose for us.
The barrier is our responsibility to protect and guide us through the worlds natural trusts of existence. The barrier should be able to withstand storms and sandy beaches. My personal thoughts are that the anxiety of the world is generated from our extrinsic truths changing our intrinsic ones. This is the apathy of my countrymen today.
We must search and decide our intrinsic truths. It is always challenging when i see the search for intrinsic value being sought in a sea of people who haven't even found their own.14/05/2017 #114 Harvey Lloyd#113 Extrinsic truth yes, intrinsic use caution as these truths are our navigation system. Intrinsic values should change only with great consideration. Our intrinsic values guides the paint brush that paints the picture of humanity along with all the others. The truth will be found on the canvas of our human creativity.14/05/2017 #112 Harvey Lloyd#107 Seeing truth as fluid in our extrinsic environment instead of rigid allows us to better understand and react within our search for truth. When we use our intrinsic truth to halt the fluid dynamics we then challenge the intrinsic values of others. Assuming the same goal is on the table to all, fluidity is the key to success.
Searching for truth is important so far as choosing an action going forward. Unfortunately, search for truth cant start until we share each others intrinsic truth. This is where the fluid process becomes stuck in the pipe.
This fluid process could end up in a direction i can not go because of my intrinsic truth. Then i must leave or change my truth. Applying (Not selling.) my truth within the dynamic of choices was unsuccessful and i must live with myself within the choice the group made.14/05/2017 #111 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#110 @Harvey Lloyd- this comment will surely reside in my mind for long times. It is packed with great meanings. There are so many elegant ideas in it. As I know that @Sara Jacobovici is writing a buzz stimulated by these discussions I wish to alert her to your comment.
You wrote "Today most of the folks who are alive from that era are no longer the same people, they would see a different truth. Truth is an ongoing concept, the major hindrance, desire. When my desire over runs the system for my benefit i am usually stomping on the truth". By thsese powerful lines you explained very well what I wrote earlier that truth is subject to The Observer Effect.
I take two lines from your comment:
"Testing our extrinsic truths in such a way that change happens within our intrinsic truth".
"We must find our own internal truths and change them with great care and thought"
The dynamism of truth because of the extrinsic truths feedback to our internal ones. and still we have the intrinsic truths invariant within its boundaries as determined by the simple rules we follow. Great thoughts my friend14/05/2017 #110 Harvey Lloyd#108 The truth will always be nebulous when we consider a group of people. I know my truths, they are unchanging or wavering, they guide me. But when we step out of our core values we enter the nebulousness world of social existence. My driving truth may not be yours. Yet we are expected to take actions together for the purpose of existence. My truths guide me through this process but i don't look for truth within the group but rather everyone uses their own to form a greater solution to existing issues of all humans.
Your observer effect comment explains why truth will always be elusive in its final form. The truths of the 1930's are now just starting to play out from the actions of society. Today most of the folks who are alive from that era are no longer the same people, they would see a different truth. Truth is an ongoing concept, the major hindrance, desire. When my desire over runs the system for my benefit i am usually stomping on the truth. When i look above my on desire, regardless of my hunger, i can find humanity and truth.
Your "rules" post a few weeks ago i believe would form the basis of our truth as we entered the social extrinsic world. Solutions should provide for the greater good of humanity, planet and freedom of identity. My truth can live within that truth as we discuss these issues.
I find that truth is usually a crusade that someone starts to bring benefit their way. Testing our extrinsic truths in such a way that change happens within our intrinsic truth. The American political system demonstrates this precisely. We must find our own internal truths and change them with great care and thought.14/05/2017 #109 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#104 Dear @Sara Jacobovici- you stirred me with your comment. Allow me to explain by examples. You recall watching a movie in which a killer, for example, remains a hidden identity. The camera would show him from many physical positions, but not the face. I am sure you experienced what I experienced- the curiosity to find out the identity. As soon as the camera focused on the face and you knew who the killer was your curiosity subdued. I believe we don't see God because we keep our curiosity chasing the truth. The truth knows that we may lose interest if we see its "face" and therefore keeps up searching for it with interest. Can we find the truth? All I know we shall keep searching for it.

Comments08/05/2017 #21 Todd JonesGreat post, Kevin. As I do not work in IT, I can only relate through ears bloodied by listening to my wife bitch for countless hours about this very subject.
10 years in healthcare IT came to an end for her last month. Her frustration with the CIO and department manager caused her to leave the department. With a clinical background herself, she fought a long, hard battle to give the doctors and nurses in the trenches IT solutions that addressed their concerns. She was constantly stymied by upper IT management who nearly always took a "They don't need that" stance on modifications. Sadly, because of this horrendous leadership, analysts and programmers are running for the doors at this organization (40% turnover in the last six months), and ultimately it will be the patients that suffer.08/05/2017 #18 Paul "Pablo" CroubalianFYI: Consider using the new buzz @beBee function to bring this post to John's attention, @Kevin Pashuk.

Comments30/04/2017 #121 Anonymous#120 Phil, I think I have understood your position, just may not have conveyed that well enough. It is difficult to cover a complex set of distinctions in a single post, and economy of writing does not help. Fantasy science as you describe it falls into my third group. Intentional misrepresentation of the results of scientific work bent to purport to be support for your own fantastic leaps is a perversion of science. The ability to repeat the work and and reproduce results, and the willingness to support that being done by other scientists is the foundation of integrity of scientific method. For many who claim to be a "Data Scientist" there is a complete lack of understanding of that. Doing additional (reproducable and repeatable) science on top of prior science after creative or conceptual leaps is one pathway through which the body of knowledge grows.30/04/2017 #120 Phil Friedman#119 Michael, I agree that there are problems in the conduct of Science that lay squarely at the feet of scientists. And that the digital self-publishing has made it way too easy for faulty, even false science to be perpetrated upon the public. But I can also tell you that even before the digital publishing age, there was a significant amount of research that was badly designed and dishonestly reported. Which is why repeatability was for so long considered essential by dedicated scientists.
Please understand that I am not arguing against the use of "creative" approaches to stretching concepts and developing new pathways of and for thought, whether scientific, philosophical, ethical, or social. What I am calling attention to is what I see as "pretend" science -- the charade of citing scientific articles and reports, but interpreting them as to mean things entirely different from what they represent. The example, that I just gave is not the first one that I've pointed out on social media. More than once, I've looked at something being said and thought "how the hell can that be true?" Then when I look at the cited article or articles, I find that the scientists involved are actually advancing something entirely different, even opposite to the fantastic secondary claims being made -- what I've come to call Fantasy Science. BTW, I really like your closing tri-part distinction. Excellent. Cheers!29/04/2017 #119 Anonymous#118 Phil, I agree with you entirely on this matter of the misrepresentation of the real science in a scientific article in support of another perhaps grasping concept. That this corruption or perversion of science occurs is not knew. It is also not new that a great deal of what purports to be science, even peer reviewed science has not stood the test of reproducability. I have seen a great deal of this in the "data science" field where writers on such esteemed platforms as LinkedIn have not been challenged on their untested, unpeer-reviewed outputs that are claimed to be scientific. What the digital age has done has made this perversion easy to do.
Science is advanced by conceptual leaps though. One or more scientific findings triggering connections or insights that lead to a new idea to be tested with scientific method to yield new results that advance knowledge. Metaphors and analogies play their part in providing a simplifying conceptual framework on which thinking can be explored and communicated.
I introduced the theory of group sizes not to take the thread off on a tangent but exactly because of this idea of "trading off individual freedom for increased probability of survival". The mathematics of group size theory often has probability of survival as one of its variables. Similarly the survival of ideas held by a group is subject to the checks and balances of questioning and criticism by the group that hold the ideas, and indeed by other groups that attack the ideas (part of the intergroup cost function). LI v beBee as a pertinent example.
Scientific method aims to build these checks and balances in, but is not perfect. Articles published in esteemed scientific journals are often withdrawn. The advance of knowledge has often suffered setbacks and has had periods where it has surged ahead. Those that adhere to scientific method with integrity are one group, those that oppose science another, those that pervert it, perhaps another.29/04/2017 #118 Phil Friedman#107 Milos, the following is a prime example of the pseudo-scientific discussion about which I am speaking. It is an introduction to a share of a purportedly scientific article. The person sharing the article says,
"Once we understand that WE ARE COMPOSED OF BACTERIA and that we cannot live without bacteria, then it is an enlightenment to understand that relationship even though science has barely begun to understand these relationships including findings related to gut-mind ... I embrace this paradox where our conceptual leaps produce within us the ability to think anew ... This ability is not in destroying an idea but building upon an idea and that is for me what is 21st Century thinking ..." [MY EMPHASIS]
The author of this introduction then cites an article in support of what he is saying --
But what the cited article actually says is that,
"... [bacteria] are commonly found on the skin, as well as in the respiratory tract and the gastrointestinal tract."
This is very far and different from asserting that "we are composed of bacteria". Yet the claim that we are composed of bacteria has now been placed into the pool of information on the information superhighway, irrespective of how misrepresentative and unsupported it is -- even by the very article cited by the author of the post. And all one has to do to recognize this is read the cited article, which I bet few if any will ever do. Continued... Pt II29/04/2017 #117 Phil Friedman#107 Milos -- Pt II
The author -- not of the article cited, but of the post -- then goes on to assert that the new thinking of the 21st century "... does not discount those that view science as concrete fact, but ALLOWS US TO IMAGINE WHAT SCIENCE HAS NOT YET FOUND ..." [MY EMPHASIS]
My intent here is not to call anyone in particular to task, nor to say that freedom of expression should be abridged, but in the context of our discussion here to point out this example not of pseudo-science, nor even of science fiction (which has historically been grounded in science and at time incredibly prescient as concerns future developments in science and technology), but rather of what has to be considered fantasy science.
I suggest to you that whilst everyone has the right to write and publish what they will on social media, that does not mean the rest of us are required to accept what they publish at face value. The only check and balance on social media is the questioning and criticism by the community of that which is published. And where fantasy science is involved, the expressions of those educated and trained and conversant in real science. IMO. Cheers!
(FYI - Gerald Hecht, Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee, Sara Jacobovici, Michael O'Neil, Praveen Raj Gullepalli)29/04/2017 #114 Phil Friedman#113 Michael, I have no doubt that it would be interesting to explore the dynamics of groups against your theory of cost. But however interesting, that is well beyond the scope of this discussion.
Just to be clear, I originally in the piece took exception to what I read in Dr. Anani's post to be an implied prescriptive thesis concerning better forms of organization of human communities. Namely, that trading off individual freedom for increaed probability of survival is the way to evolve.
Dr. Anani uses the example of bacteria and biofilm to illustrate that thesis. Given the penchant on beBee for using the bee colony as a metaphor, I was moved to point out that some "communities" exhibit the characteristics of true collectives, while others do not. And further that we should keep the diferences always in mind. Thank you for joining the conversation. Cheers!29/04/2017 #113 Anonymous#20 Phil, I have followed the thread with interest and have come back to your statement "the human species has, except for periodic epicycles, marched inexorably forward toward more and more individualism" and the idea that metaphors a models that are only partially useful. Collectivism versus individualism could be considered using the theory of group size which suggests there is an optimal group size detemined by a total cost function which is the sum of intergroup cost function and intragroup cost functions, with cost on the vertical axis and group size on the horizontal axis. The intergroup cost curve is decreasing with group size and the intragroup cost curve is increasing with group size. If this theory holds then the trend to individualism, a decrease in group size over time, occurs because there is increased intragroup competition over time and the intragroup cost curve shifts leftwards resulting in a redusced optimal group size over time (for the same intergroup cost curve). It is interesting to observe social behavior and in particular social media group behaviour against this sort of model.29/04/2017 #112 Phil Friedman#107 Milos > "... Everyone has the freedom to write what he wants and to be criticized ..."
Now, that is a statement we can agree on. On social media there are no checks imposed, other than those of potential criticism. Which is why free and open exchange is so critical -- lest the forces of pseudo-science and Jabberwocky come to predominate.29/04/2017 #107 Anonymous#106 Phil, there is a fine line between metascience, metaphysics, pseudoscience and science generated by laymen, philosophers or scientists, particularly in social media. Social media articles are not peer-reviewed scientific or philosophical articles. Everyone has the freedom to write what he wants and to be criticized, laymen, philosophers and scientists. It is not pleasant to everyone, especially to laymen, philosophers and scientists who are not accustomed to criticism. Criticism, self-criticism and teaching is my job. Now you can try to shoot me :-)29/04/2017 #106 Phil Friedman#105 Milos, it is definitely not advisable to invite people to shoot you. But is sometimes fun to invite them to try. :-) I personally have no objection to intelligent lay discussion in meta-science. But I agree we have to be very careful to avoid pseudo-science, whether generated by laymen or scientists. Cheers!29/04/2017 #105 Anonymous"DON'T make it a habit to dare people to shoot you (I may have broken this one myself...a nice exemplar on why I don't like to write)." - @Gerald Hecht, from beBee article article titled: "WHY I HATE TO WRITE" by Prof. Gerald Hecht.
