    #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?"

    #11 This is a great comment @Sara Jacobovici. Yes, it is the surprises that make this journey together a very pleasant one. You surprise me with your quality of comments. This in turn makes me even more grateful to you. Because you feel my gratitude *which is genuine) you tend to surprise me with another surprising comment, leading me to get more surprised and again influencing you. This is a feedback loop because what affects me affects you and in turn you affect me. It is this kind of loops that may develop into surprising things and unexpected one. In my exchanges of comments with you this has been the way we interacted. This is how new ideas are blossoming. I can't thank you enough dear Sara.

    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.
    Sara Jacobovici
    28/11/2016 #9 Sara Jacobovici
    #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

    #4 I disagree and here's why.

    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.

    I want to get back to the fingering effect and the researcher who studied these sand fractals, Xiang Cheng - for the actual research Cheng did to discover this effect is mindboggingly complex, the kind that @Vincenzo De Florio View more
    I want to get back to the fingering effect and the researcher who studied these sand fractals, Xiang Cheng - for the actual research Cheng did to discover this effect is mindboggingly complex, the kind that @Vincenzo De Florio and @Milos Djukic can get their mind around https://arxiv.org/ftp/arxiv/papers/0712/0712.2019.pdf but which is out of reach to the layman.

    Then I go to the other dimension of people studying effects of people looking at this effect and the words apophenia and pareidolia pop up. http://59ways.blogspot.ca/2012/01/apophenia-and-pareidolia_09.html This too can become way too outside the range of the layman, indeed the more one studies this, the more we begin to identify with the world that @Gerald Hecht and @Deb Helfrich will readily understand, well beyond the mainstream.

    What Milos does well in his comments is make a linkage between the creation of social networks and complex adaptive systems, which so far invariably brings me back to the one place where these linkages are studied at depth, which is namely the Sante Fe Institute and even then that Institute provides disclaimers between the work of individual researchers and its purpose. One such work is by Melanie Mitchell, called Complex Systems: Network Systems. http://www.santafe.edu/media/workingpapers/06-10-036.pdf

    Even if there is a Seth Godin or Malcolm Gladwell type that can channel the work of researchers into mainstream insights, I recognize that complex adaptive systems explain much but the large body of business thinking is wired differently, so we can learn to see these thing but not get mainstream business folk to see what it is we have learned. That is what I see as "hidden" in fractal power, so I am still grappling with how best to make this invisible visible - otherwise we end up in complex thinking communicated as a specialty. Close

    So coming back reading this buzz is as @Donna-Luisa Eversley mentioned is beauty beyond measure and it's quality is simply profound.

    I would love to agree with @Irene Hackett beautiful comment here as she shares my thoughts on this
    " You, dear Ali are the "Fractal Power acting on systems (beBee) on organizing movement (of thoughts and ideas) ....so as to maximize their use of available resources." Your inspiration moves us, our thoughts & ideas beautifully colliding and taking new direction and shape - such as cannot be measured, but like a fractal coastline, when one looks close, such inspiration is much bigger than the senses can perceive"

    As Milos says " Learning about fractals to me is more like absorbing and shaping of my perceptions "

    The beauty of the object is in the hands and eyes of the maker and that beauty reflects that person inner beauty like that of the beautiful snowflake and the Fractals Forever beBee's who have the Fractal Power to organise, enrich and enlightened play a major role in avoiding the crowdedness of ideas.

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.

    #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. 😊

    Dear Pinto, exact value of ϕ is (1+√5) / 2, i.e., 1.6180339887...... . This is the solution to quadratic equation ϕ^- ϕ -1=0 derived from specific ratio between two numbers a/b = (a+b)/a = ϕ

    Fractals, Beauty of Complexity (and Chaos)
    Fractals, Beauty of Complexity (and Chaos)Self-similarity (Fractals) on all scales may be the secret key to understanding the complex phenomena. Self-similarity on rather different scales is another proof of fractal nature of cosmology. ...

    I dig the concepts @Milos Djkic. I am curious if you have studied digital to analog conversions?

    I think of the binary expression of digital as the fractal beginning with the use of oct and hex to expand it into the analog. Behind the fractal design is where the chaos factor is. It's behind the fractal so to speak. I feel it is that chaos factor that is in the binary that on occasion switches it up at random to change the design that eludes us.

    Who or what is making the random decision that changes the fractal design?

    I tend to lean toward gyre theory which says simply stated that at the heart of the smallest subatomic particle is a singularity that works on a vortex. My theory that I can not prove or disprove s that there is a consciousness within the singularity.

    It's the only thing that explains the chaos factor with anything that makes sense. for me.

    #9 Well put Gerald, 'Science' like 'Art' is a large generic pot of pooh, which at times stinketh mightily. One cannot talk about 'Art' because it isn't a specific, one can converse about artists and their artwork, but 'Art' is undefined. Likewise I believe that 'Science' is a much overused word meant to intimidate one into submission in a conversation; i.e. "Science sez" blah blah blah. In fact Science never speaks. Scientists speak. Like religion science (small science) is subject to faith in theory. Much of modern scientific theory is also like religion. One must have faith.

    The scientist is not necessarily someone who is doing research (in white lab coat) inside an academic institution, but has industry or business experience and work in public or private company. In relation to this topic, I’ve recently read an article on industrialization of the university and the impact of that process to original nature and role of traditional university. There are many critics who are against the industrialised university with educational aims solely directed towards acquiring the skills required for the competition in the labour market. That's certainly food for thought.

Whenever you read something that says: "Researchers prove that X causes y" or "Scientists prove that the drug Dammital is more effective than Scewitall in treating anxiety"...IT AIN'T SCIENCE!

    There is an untruth that many who are in the business of spirituality cling to and propagate.

    Love and light.

    If there is love there is no "and' needed. It is used to create elitism and judgement. It is a way to avoid truly knowing the depths of the dark of oneself and hide from the truth of existence.

    I wrote a fiction series of shorts from the perspective of the devil, let me share the fictional view I came up with for just this kind of discussion.

    "I was created to be God’s counterbalance. The Yin to God’s Yang. Those who came before me where called The Light Bringer as it was Lucifer that was the light that God first spoke into existence from the void that is God. To be that light had cut me off from God as I could only illuminate that which only God could love.

    My light showed that which should never be seen.

    Yes, even those things are loved by God.

    In the past I could only show the temptation and be the voice in your ear that says “It’s over there, why wait?” I cast light on what was around you for you to decide what to do.

    When I understood this I cursed God and took my light to the very depths to see what truly only God could love. There was no end that could be found in the void of God.

    When I understood this I asked God to change me.

    I asked God to let me be Silver so that I may reflect the light and be part of it and yet still know and touch God’s love and be able to peer into the void without having to see what is there and find the bliss of God’s Unconditional love."

    Ignorance is bliss and love is never ignorant.

    Many thoughts come to mind such as, power verses force, light verses darkness. To become more conscious is the greatest gift one can give to the world as it comes back to it's source..a ripple effect. Much is said about light and it's many layers and effects, but have we taken notice of the mystery of darkness? Light comes and it goes, whereas darkness always is, it is not an effect like light and seems not to need any fuel. Close your eyes and darkness is always there, blow out a candle, darkness is there. Darkness cannot be seen in the light, light blocks our vision. Is not light caused by something, dependent on something, a source to fuel it? Darkness is silence,we feel our aloneness, in light we are busy, we see everyone, we appear separate. The other side of the coin...thank you as always dear Ali Anani . My deep gratitude.

    Light makes things visible. But that visibility may be dim or it may bright. The brighter light is more illuminating and perhaps an easier path to follow or a safer haven in which to dwell. I believe the dimmer lights along the way lead you to the brighter light, which the smaller act can be preventing the bigger act. And yes, the bigger act can eclipse the smaller one so is the obvious hiding behind the mysterious or vice versa? In my opinion, it can work either way.

    The concept of shadow self in leadership is important because it is a reality. The shadow of leaders touches people in different ways. The night is beautiful until our own imagination ruins it. There are also prejudices in society between light people and dark people - and so the only form of wholesome positive is embracing both light and shadow. With no light we may not be able to see but too much light blinds us.

    The religious conception of Lucifer is not the angel of darkness but the angel of light. Not only do I embrace the spectrum/colour but I also embrace the tint, tones and shades http://www.craftsy.com/blog/2013/05/hues-tints-tones-and-shades/ With tints one is adding white, with tones one is adding both black and white and with shades one is adding black. My personal learning journey embraces all those aspects.

    My starting point is wholeness and I want to master that, because then I can observe brokenness differently than if I begin my learning journey with brokenness - for the pull and gravity of brokenness is far greater than the lightness of being that is wholeness. This focus on whole rather than broken relates to awakening - and each day I awake, I consider myself whole but maybe within seconds my memory and thoughts will recast cracks, dents and the memory of brokenness but the longer I can remain whole, the greater the chance I have of remaining whole.

    We read stories of people who were broken but still soar and we are inspired by them - which tells me that only a few people see themselves as whole - and whole does not mean a physical thing but allying ourselves as a gift of the cosmos, and how can I be more whole with that, rather than my temporal existence?

    @Ali Anani Excellent post! I know from the experience of living in a very impoverished neighborhood that the Broken Windows theory does not begin to address the problems in such neighborhoods. The broken windows that occur in them (as well as other physical acts of destruction) serve as a safety valve, blowing off the steam of unceasing frustration and hopelessness. Only by alleviating the darkness that poverty brings can the light of productivity begin the photosynthesis of hope that such poverty destroys.

    I have to say I read this post yesterday and I couldn't say a word about it... When I went to bed I was thinking about the effects of the light, the same light, on a sunny person or a cloudy person and I felt still speechless. When I read long time ago "Man's Search for Meaning" by doctor Frankl, I had clear as water than the light (the situations) is less important than I thought till that moment. The really important question is the reflect (interpretation) each of us create from that light. Same light, different reflections. I still don't have many words about it...

    The starting point is important especially if we are looking adversity straight in the face. There is a great difference between the brain dealing with a hill of adversity rather than a brain that is facing an endless cliff face. We can build our resilience when the challenge is a hill, and we also acknowledge here that we have not really been on the receiving end of life. So from a state of health we can cultivate even more health but when one is facing extreme challenge, it is a long journey where the contemplative is a luxury for us, compared to those who are battling back from huge challenges. The kind of challenge I am talking about is featured in a documentary about British boxer Michael Watson https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q9ZO0FL2Vx8

    #1 I'll wager that in Bali, time is slower than in other areas...thereby leaving you in a time continuum where you are protected from the actual passage of 'real' time. I'll also bet that as long as you're taking care of your mind, body and soul, that you are aging slower than the rest of the average big-city population in the rat-race. So have another beer on me, yeah. It's a good diuretic and on a hot day, it hits you like nothing else.

    It's true Daniel @Daniel Donachie, we really only fire off a few synapses at any given moment and most of the time they're spent on keeping a tight fist over something that happened in our past that we can't let go of. Please keep making these videos, they're really interesting and super informative.

    I live in bali and have done for a few years. Due to sloth, methinks my brain only processes a couple of things a day. Should I have a large or a small Bintang ( beer)

    #5 Yes @Ali Anani, by changing values of the parameters we can shape heart curves in numberless forms. Although the shapes made according to the Golden Ratio are considered aesthetically pleasing in its appearance, for me all these hearts are beautiful in their "imperfection". Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.☺

    #1 Thanks for the kind words, @Ali Anani. Love can be expressed in many ways, not only words. The curve shaped in the form of a heart has its mathematical explanation, but we will never be able to explain feelings like love or hate by using scientific models.
