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:

    #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.

    #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.

    #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".
    David Navarro López
    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.

    #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.

    #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.

I am a Restorative Practices and legal reform advocate. The human behavioural equation you include is very helpful.

    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.

    #1 Dear @Ali Anani...absolutely relieved to know I was on the right track, as I had promised something worthy of your attention...in the continued fractal quest. And thank you so much for those words of appreciation...truly ! Yes Sir, I will be reading your latest shortly...also wanted to convey that the earlier buzz on Form has a twin too...a smaller offshoot, a rider perhaps, that sprung up from fractal vortex while I was connecting the dots. WIP. Shall share it soon.

    Dear @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.

    #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

    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.

    #28 Hahahahaha, like he wrote "Air" on them with a pen? I was just thinking that philosophy is not inquisitive. Not looking for answers. Science attempts to get to the bottom of things while Philosophy gets lost in the question if things even have a bottom. BUT ... I´m neither a scientist nor philosopher - you know better. I don´t think I read the British Empiricists yet.

    #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.

    #19 @Pamela 🐝 Williams The big problem, I think, is a "semantic wool that's been pulled over people's eyes"; a lot of people are confusing "technicians" with scientists. If you read my piece: "On the Behavioral Part of Behavioral Pharmacology"...you'll spot the difference right away! 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! Its marketing material based on the work of corporate employees in the R&D Department who have flipped science upside down to manufacture a proprietary product or process for 💸💵💴💶💷💰💎
