Philosophy

+ 200 buzzes
Philosophy is the study of general and fundamental problems concerning matters such as existence, knowledge, values, reason, mind, and language. The term was probably coined by Pythagoras (570 – 495 BC). Philosophical methods include questioning, critical discussion, rational argument and systematic presentation.

    "I honestly wish to read more contributions before proposing the simple rules that lead to the formation of "biofilm of beliefs". "

    But by proposing it in this way, you leave nooks and crannies for us, the readers, to ponder on and come up with ideas to fill these spaces.
    If there are lots of nooks and crannies, there are lots of spaces for many of us to contribute.
    The more who contribute, the more interesting the discussion can be.
    Similarly, simple rules can become more complex with expansion from others' ideas.
    Different perspectives can emerge too and be seriously considered, accepted or modified.

    It's like any research.
    After analysing the data, the results may not fully represent the starting hypothesis
    so there is a need to expand the general starting hypothesis and finely hone it into a number of more specific ones.

    That is the main reason I like your posts so much @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee !
    You give us the freedom to be authentic in an acceptable way in an appropriate forum.

    My main problem as I have stated previously is that lots of intelligent bees do too,
    so it takes a while to digest the schizogony of bacteria - agreeable and not so agreeable!

    The Mystery of Time
    The Mystery of TimeIt’s About Time I often think about time, it is a continual mystery to me. We cannot directly feel time with our senses, we can’t stop it, we can’t buy it, it can be a friend, it can be an enemy, perhaps it doesn’t exist outside our awareness....

    Time is the flow of feeling,
    with different emotions for its gears;
    Rushing along the road of life,
    or pausing to taste the tears.

    Oh but the eternal juggernaut rolls,
    through aeons and our years;
    Space the mute witness,
    as it rolls trampling over joys and fears.

    That was for you Gert! And so is this:

    #43 Just found another take on time, Gert. When rushing for that plane (which eventually came with time) results in time flying away with us, then hurried comments can lead to potentially slanderous keyboard errors on the iPhone, in #40 below. Hence, for "reading ..... in mired detail" read "..... more detail", and for "tie ..... management", a tailor's enviable objective, read "time ..... management". 😕

    Incidentally, you may remember my earlier jocular post on time, which now pales in insignificance compared to your above treatise: https://www.bebee.com/producer/@ken-boddie/your-wake-up-call-sir

    As I wait for yet another late plane, Gert, reading your blog in mired detail surprises me. My takeaway thought is the conflict between creative thinking and effective tie and task management. In hindsight, as with all 'wake up' statements, it seems so obvious when read. I guess if creative messy time is the mother of invention then productive time must be the mother of the boringly mundane.

    @Gert Scholtz, superb buzz. This is what I take from your buzz: "We are less creative when we are in a hurry. The cognitive processes in creativity involve exploration, experimenting with various views, and iterating start and finish." I cannot agree more with you. More haste less speed as they say. When I write a buzz, I take a bit more time to think, to explore and to experiment with ideas and thoughts. Thank you, Gert.

    #29 Personally, they've never worked for me. Some people say Kava works. Studies have been done which state Kava doesn't. I never benefited from it. Maybe others would know? They do sell teas specifically for stress, a company named Yogi sells one. You can get it in the grocery store. It wouldn't hurt to try, maybe it would work for you. B vitamins are supposed to be really good for anxiety. You have to take B Complex with B12. I buy both and get sublingual drops. They sell sublingual B12 too. It takes time for a vitamin regime to begin to work if it's going to but that is well worth trying.

    #15 Hi @Renée 🐝 Cormier, sadly with GAD (Generalized Anxiety Disorder) thoughts do control you in a strange way. That's one of the reasons I'm in therapy working on reprogramming my brain per se. Intrusive thoughts are unwanted thoughts that play over and over like a broken record in your mind no matter what thoughts you try to replace them with, they return instantly. I never realized how much my thoughts controlled me until I sought help. That is *one* of my issues and I actually thought for a very long time that I was weak and should be able to control my thoughts- I worked hard daily w/out success and just became more worn down physically, When people are inflicted with intrusive thoughts they beat themselves up more than anyone. Logically, a person will keep saying, "This is BS, I need to stop thinking these thoughts, re-direct... think about all the positive things going on, think of wonderful memories," eg, it's only a temporary (very temporary) reprieve. Don't get me wrong, I'm not a negative Nancy no matter how it may appear when I write. I agree, we can choose our thoughts but we aren't always in control. I appreciate you taking the time to read this. :)

    You'll excuse my language, @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher, but one of the most therapeutic things you can do is tell your brain to "f**k off." I know it sounds crazy but our rambling minds can sometimes create panic that goes way beyond reality. Every time you feel anxious, just use those two little words. Say them to yourself or say them out loud. And just keep saying it until your brain calms down.

    #8 My son is doing a race at Pikes Peak this summer! Every year my son, my brother, and brother in law do Mt. Evans bike race, it's become a yearly tradition for them. Pikes Peak I've yet to see. I think my son wanted to drive me up there the last time but I said no... Isn't that where you can see the Continental Divide from?

    Another excellent post, Phillip. I cannot help but admire your perspicacity. As someone who works in the utility industry, I often contemplate the incredibly vulnerable nature of our electric grid. An extended large scale power outage would produce widespread havoc within a matter of weeks, essentially sending us backward hundreds of years. Thankfully the industry is moving toward more resilient, less interconnected systems, but it will still be a couple of decades before they are fully implemented.

    #44 Thank you for contributing to the discussion @Hervé Sabattier. What I find very powerful about the Viktor Frankl quote is that, for me, it says that we always have a choice and that is in how we respond to anything. Our circumstances or environment may influence or restrict our freedom and our choices, but because we are left with the ultimate choice of how we respond, that means we are always free. So, in this way, making no choice is still a choice we freely can make.

    Thank you Sara, your reply has made me reconsider my original comment. As someone who doesn't believe in absolutes it would be fairer to say if offering choices I would only offer ones I was happy with, if I am offered choices I am not comfortable with I either decline or negotiate. As to illusion I take your point and agree with your comments on it. However something which comes to mind is the illusionist/magician, who make people believe they have made a choice. The choices we make are often knowingly or unknowingly influenced by others. #34

    #28 Double synchronicity @CityVP 🐝 Manjit: 1- I just finished responding to @Laura Mikolaitis's comment by saying, "...we need the power of choice to help us identify new inroads...", great line, leaves me with much to think about. So definitely agree, " Power within the choice is the choice." 2 - In my writing on choice, on my rough draft, I cut and pasted the following from Deuteronomy Chapter 30:19, " This day, I call upon the heaven and the earth as witnesses [that I have warned] you: I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. You shall choose life, so that you and your offspring will live." Agreed again, "Choose life".

    #20 Thank you @John Rylance for your comment. I'd like to respond to two points I read in it. One, "Never offer someone a choice you can't live with." Has me thinking....it's a sensitive point. It makes me think that if the individual makes a choice you can't live with then that will definitely influence the future of the relationship. Two, I can so relate to the frustration of the choices with strings or limited choices, but I am not sure I agree with choice as an illusion because I can still choose whether to get the car or not, or go to another dealer, or wait for an alternative. Not happy about the circumstances, but the choice is very real and still mine.

    #17 Thank you Lisa, these techniques are very helpful for working with children - the sooner we stop laying down negative thought tracks the better. However, every moment we chose to notice how we are thinking we have the opportunity to change the direction of our thoughts. It is a moment by moment practice. Best of luck to you on your journey.

    It is important to listen to our bodies but sometimes the brain does not want to cooperate no matter how hard one tries. I think these are vital tools to utlize with young children. Maybe if they learn to practice these skills when they are young, their coping skills will be so much better than someone of my age. I'm still working on a lot of this. Some days it works great, others not so much. But, I'm a work in progress and I do believe we are capable of change no matter what age... it can just take so much longer when our brains were programmed in a certain way and we reacted to that programming for years, if that makes sense? Great peice!

    This is so true. When we constantly dwell on things that hurt or angered us, it will keep in a negative frame of mind. But when we choose to think about the more positive things that we want to do or just come our way, it will keep us from going down into a pit that is hard to climb out of.

I share strategies for s forming emotion, beliefs & energy that has been stuck in our body. When we pay attention & release energy that is stuck in our body memory we find new found freedom.

    As @Deb Helfrich says - it is s book to experience not just read - and it is all about what I call our next step to integrate thinking with sensing the language of our body - a language we have neglected as we have been so focussed on thinking as if it only comes from
    Our mind- brain. I believe the more we develop these capacities we will have another exponential shift in our expanding awareness and potential. I look forward to connecting.

    "Listen to your body" This is as simple and as complex as life gets, @Laura Donnelly. Our wisdom is our body, but as a modern society we have build so many structures and habits that ignore our bodies that we never even take a few seconds to listen to the constant dialogue our bodily sensations are trying to engage us in.

    Great buzz on listening to our body and controlling out thoughts and it's actions. @Laura Donnelly. I am reading a book called Trust your senses by @Deb🐝 Lange, Brand Ambassador @beBee Where she talks about listening and trusting our sense. She talks about our inner dialogue and how to create inner freedom. I am halfway through as it's pretty intense and a wonderful book.
