Cyndi's comment below
"Perhaps if more of us took on the task of addressing our own individual fears first, we could serve to shift the winds of change in favor of collaboration within the forces that govern our nations and move from conflict into a unified awareness of the long standing beliefs and cultural practices that no longer serve our growth as a 'global community."

Our collective lives exist for a mere nanosecond- Wow it just shows we don't have much time do we.
I think I'll like the dontsweat.com just by looking at the website. The books I shall add them to my collection.
"One day at a time, one step at a time, while maintaining a positive outlook, compassion and kindness towards others" This quote summed up the whole buzz Thank you29/03/2017 #4 Devesh 🐝 BhattThe world and I, the use is always mutual. The use will always be a matter of injustice. Because we may skip the word "grow" and "responsibility" and presume that "can't be selfish" implies that we already are. That is how the human mind has been conditioned by society to conveniently ignore a beautiful message by you and focus selectively.
We dont use each other, we co exist. The universe exists because countless things co exist. An examlle, people choose poverty alleviation over child labour or deforestation, but it cannot be sustained because it all has to co-exist. Sometimes the best way to co exist is to quit the perceptions of "use" and "give" and "take" in the social sense altogether. Because giving and taking is simultaneous .. when we give/take unwisely we give misery to both...when we give/take wisely , we give progress to both. We can only value others when we value ourselves and all transactions are to enhance this value. The measures of value simply change, giving is just a mediator, a simple catalyst to realise it.29/03/2017 #3 David B. GrinbergThanks for another brilliant buzz, Fatima. The way I try to live is one day at a time, one step at a time, while maintaining a positive outlook, compassion and kindness towards others. Moreover, when one thinks about cosmic time relative to the human life span, it appears that our collective lives exist for a mere nanosecond (one-billionth of a second).
To wit: the global average life span is about 71 years according to the latest data from the World Health Organization (WHO). Scientists say the planet Earth is about 4.5 billion years old and the Universe is about 14 billion years old. I find this to be a sobering and humbling comparison. That is, putting the human life span in a cosmic perspective. That's also why I also try to abide by the maxim, "Don't Sweat the Small Stuff - And It's All Small Stuff" (per the book of the same name and book series) http://dontsweat.com/
These perspectives help a lot with stress relief during challenging times, at least for me. Thanks again for another brilliant buzz, Fatima!28/03/2017 #2 Tausif MundrawalaMany a times people blame others for their doom but thy don't understand that they have not valued themselves.

I enjoyed reading it immensely. Of particular interest for me is your writing "…that represents the birthing of a community within a community. Often we seek to create change in the world without creating change where we stand". Community within community is a nested structure and is the beginning of the formation of a social fractal. Sheer beauty this is. And then you proceed to write "The opportunity is to operate under a system of order (Monday meeting) entwined with a system of chaos (Saturday". In every chaotic system we find regions of order and your finding is superb.
This is a grand effort my friend.

Comments27/03/2017 #3 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#1 ADDENDUM: This is a 30 minute interview with Richard Branson. To earn the interview, the video podcaster was taken to Branson's island by boat, but he had to swim from the boat to the Island ! The net insight here is that even if I tried an elevator pitch to get Branson's attention, nothing is guaranteed unless Branson himself is paying attention.
The great question in the interview was "how far is too far?" to which Branson replied you have to protect the downside, which is true to form of entrepreneurs like him - to take risks but with conservative measures of survival. After I heard all this - the actual value of "get to the point" is underscoring a master-servant relationship - or at least a one shot Eminem moment
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Yhyp-_hX2s27/03/2017 #2 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#1 Notice whose idea it was and who is under pressure to get to the point - the point being NOT Richard Branson. We are a society that is enamoured by superheroes like Richard Branson, but here we overlook his actual superpower, which is "entrepreneurial ADHD" ( a good thing! ) as this Entrepreneur article points out https://www.entrepreneur.com/article/252231
Along with his dyslexia that he talks about in interviews that he credits made him drop out of school, I think "Get to the Point" with Richard Branson is actually a one-sided proposition - for we are the one's who need to get his attention (thus the elevator pitch) in order to communicate with him, but he has no obligation to reciprocate with us, but what I can guarantee is that if you and I were to get to the point with Richard Branson, his next thought would be a new idea - "Gosh, that has given me another idea !" By the time the elevator ride is over he would be leaving with a new idea in his head, but not the one we pitched him - and we would be kicking ourselves for "Wasting 30 seconds !" The irony of an actual elevator pitch with Richard Branson is divine !
At that point when Branson's ADHD mind is unleashed, the whole elevator lark is a part of his non-stop enjoyment of life, that is the whole point of him having his own Island. Personally, I decided a long time ago that my personal island is my own home and I never had the imagination to go beyond my own front door. In some ways you @Dean Owen have a greater affinity with Richard Branson when it comes to love of travel and new experiences, but I am more like him in the way we free associate :-)

Comments24/03/2017 #15 Sara JacoboviciThanks for the mention @Deb🐝 Lange. Your buzz offers all the information we need to understand the range of movements in our lives and allows us to begin to give those movements and their sensory experiences a new language. Looking forward to your future posts Deb.24/03/2017 #14 Sara Jacobovici#6 100% agree that silence has movement @Ali Anani. First thing I can think of is the movement of the vibrations of silence. These are the vibrations which don't translate into sound as our brain processes sound. Then there is what Mozart says, "'The music is not in the notes, but in the silence between." In this way the silence moves us from note to note. Often silence "moves" us to "hear" other things. Thanks for letting me think out loud Dr. Ali.24/03/2017 #12 Deb🐝 Lange@Ali Anani you ask, "Do you believe in the paradox that silence has "potential movement? " - yes, I do agree that silence has potentail movement. In the silence we can sense whther this movement is likely to emerge as a stattaco, a waltz, a swing, a hang or a thrust. Even though we may sense the potential movement as soon as it emerges it, it will connect with energy in the space and will either mirror that energy, or adapt or influence the energy in the space.24/03/2017 #11 Deb🐝 Lange#6 Dear @Ali Anani I love this, you say, "Like we have potential energy converting to kinetic energy we may have potential movement that turns into kinetic movement." - and does that potential energy and potential kinetic movement reside inside our cells in our being and all around us? So if we open our energy portal we can sense both the potential movement and the kinetic movement within us, our location and in the spaces between us.24/03/2017 #10 Deb🐝 Lange#5 @Mohammed A.

Now, comes your buzz and it added to my thoughts. I shall refer to your buzz as well in my next buzz. Do you believe in the paradox that silence has "potential movement?

Comments24/03/2017 #48 Ali Anani@Sara Jacobovici picks the threads of lines from a comment on this buzz and weaves a mind-boggling buzz that is surely worthy of your reading time.

Comments24/03/2017 #45 Ali Anani#44 @Laura Mikolaitis- your comment is #44 and yet you bring fresh ideas and meaning to choices, pocket, decision-making and use of time. To make a decision is a choice and its timing is important. I enjoyed very much the idea of having our pockets full and the subsequence we get of our greatness. It is the time to realize eto humble ourselves so as not to cloud our choices. I may add here that these clouds aren't rainy and that they may not water new seeds of ideas.
I thank you for caring to write such a lovely comment.24/03/2017 #44 Laura MikolaitisExcellent post, @Ali Anani. The image of the sea turtle is particularly stunning and quite clearly is an excellent visual to help enhance the thoughts and ideas that you share in this article. Your point about toxic employees is well taken and is something that I have experienced during my career. But what stands out to me the most about this post is this: choice. Most of us are fortunate enough to have the ability to exercise the power of choice. From something as simple as deciding what to have for breakfast in the morning to something more intricate like making a life changing decision, we have the ability to choose. Good, bad or indifferent.
We all have pockets so your point about deciding whether or not to put our heads in clean pockets really resonates. Each day we find ourselves in a variety of environments and within that day are likely faced with varying degrees of challenges, people, and decisions to make. I believe that there will always be negative forces that will impede us if we choose to let them. But I also believe that we have the ability to discern between good choices and bad ones. Yet, I also realize that sometimes our pockets are full and that can cause us to feel overwhelmed and perhaps cloud our choices; which is why it is even more important to recognize the value of time and how we choose to expend it.24/03/2017 #43 Ali Anani#42 I recall your post dear @Aaron Skogen and it was a brilliant one besides introducing us. I value your comment greatly. I expanded on this buzz in my published buzz post to this one"
Put Your Head Deep in Your Pocket
https://www.bebee.com/producer/@ali-anani/put-your-head-deep-in-your-pocket24/03/2017 #42 Aaron SkogenI enjoyed this thought provoking post @Ali Anani. It reminded me (in Spirit) of a post a wrote last year called "Find the Gift" https://www.bebee.com/producer/@aaron-skogen/find-the-gift. I say in spirit, because my theme was different, as I was dealing with the loss of a co worker, yet very similar in the cleansing of which you write. There is an inherent cleansing of our "pockets", mental, physical and spiritual, found in nature, we only need to seek it. The beauty is, its easy to find!23/03/2017 #40 Jean L. Serio CPC, CeMA"Fertilizing ideas in unclean pockets simply doesn't work. When we set aside pockets of time to relax and kick the microbes out of the pockets we must ensure that we do this perfectly well" is excellent advice for us all, Ali. Plus I'm sure your comment " That is why I go to nature where I feel all negative ideas are poured out of my pockets and then the eggs of new ideas fill the clean pockets" resonates with many as well. It seems we are closer to nature than we realize. When we immerse ourselves in nature, it seemingly surrounds us providing the comforting atmosphere needed to encourage the release of emotional 'baggage' in order to regroup and stride forward. For me it's the beach. Thanks for another thoughtful share, Ali.23/03/2017 #39 Ali Anani#38 Thank you so much dear @Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman for your comment is a bridge of different comments. You related the comments of @Sara Jacobovici, mine, @🐝 Fatima G. Williams and then @CityVP 🐝 Manjit wonderfully. You actually showed us the need for change and how to go about it by doing so.
Trust me I friend when I joke that I don't ever mean to belittle people or being rude. I mean it as a way to enlighten or infatuate the reader.23/03/2017 #38 Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman#22 Ali, I don't find your joke at all rude, and I, like Sara, am infatuated with your statement "Between choice and action there seems to exist a chasm. We need to be able to build a bridge to cross the gap or be able to fly over it. Else, find another choice or path."
Now thinking about Fatima's comment "How did the noise enter our pockets"? Is it because we allowed it to or were we too naive to see there was a problem? And if we were too naive to see it, can we recognize the fact we need to build a bridge, etc.? The dirty pocket can then become a pocket of despair with no hope of getting out.
This brings me to CityVP's comment "Correcting thoughtlessness is like trying to make a hole in water with our finger, but engaging in thinking, that is what we are doing here - these are our pockets and they contain our future. The dirt of the past is not where my hands are, they are not in my pockets, but navigating to pockets of change ahead and here."
Engaging in thinking is key but there are those that need to be empowered to process thoughts and see the need for change. Your comment " Yes, we humans tend to magnify risk and then avoid it more than with the profit." IMO, this is an example of what can lead someone to the dirty pocket unknowingly.22/03/2017 #36 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#32 Where is the pocket of thinking reside but in our brain, nervous system and psychic connection. Hives are simply catalysts of ore, it is our pockets of thinking that extract its gold - it is why honey attracts us in the first place - because we see it as golden. The pockets of thinking are that gold, hives are the ore that hold that gold, and affinity is our principal tool of extraction.22/03/2017 #35 Ali Anani#34 If you only had written this comment dear @CityVP 🐝 Manjit before I responded to the very grand comment of @Sara Jacobovici just before your comment.
I am relieved. The surprising thing is while reading your comment the idea of pockets of thinking crossed my mind. You then surprised me by using it. I shouldn't be surprised because I know what value to expect from your comment.
Just a question crossed my mind- how do you compare or relate the idea of hives with pockets of thinking?22/03/2017 #34 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#30 What we still retain in our minds today will be in the digital pockets of tomorrow. The fundamental reality of our children's children is going to fundamentally change. We have all lived in the rear view window - that is not the immersive and extended life reality to come, in an immersive environment what we consider to be only internal will be external. The pockets that yesterday contained genetically modified corn will contend with pockets of ever increasing innovation and either we become someone's pocket of corn or we adjust to the virtual, spatial and synthetic pockets of tomorrow.
It is already happening but we are not present to it, because we think that the lineage of our past is the linear continuity of tomorrow. This is the transformation, it is why today we talking about fractals and butterfly effects - the pockets of thinking we engage here are a part of these pockets of change.
Correcting thoughtlessness is like trying to make a hole in water with our finger, but engaging in thinking, that is what we are doing here - these are our pockets and they contain our future. The dirt of the past is not where my hands are, they are not in my pockets, but navigating to pockets of change ahead and here.22/03/2017 #32 Ali Anani#31 I shall be open with you publicly dear @Sara Jacobovici. I expected more hot discussions (not views) on my last two buzzes for I believe they took serious effort from me to write. This wasn't the case as desired. But then comes a comment that send me flying over the chasm and this comment just did this. For long times I have been considering writing a buzz titled "The Wave-Based Strategies" in which I introduce a new way of thinking strategically. The wrote the buzz draft months ago. Each day I find an idea or example that reinforces my confidence in this strategy. However; my main reward is the discussions that I expect because this is a truly two-way learning method. A comment of the depth of yours may finally convince me to publish this natured-based strategy. Thank you Sara for the uplifting.22/03/2017 #31 Sara Jacobovici#22 "Between choice and action there seems to exist a chasm.

Else, find another choice or path." I haven't stopped thinking about this @Ali Anani since I read it. I have always referred to Viktor Frankl's quote, "Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom." Your quote, Dr. Ali, branches out in a way that deserves attention. Thank you. Close22/03/2017 #30 Ali Anani#29 You open many of discussions my dear @CityVP 🐝 Manjit. I keep saying the more we know, the more wwe find how much more we need to know. The human body is the least understood system. If I write a review on what foods were claimed medically to be harmful and then reverse of finding I shall be myself surprised. The gut-brain relationship is another exemplary example of what I mean. Emotions, stress and relaxation who can claim how they change our body chemistry. The brain which has hundred of thousand of molecules we only about 300 of them. We make new tools to probe the human body only to be more bewildered by its complexity. I am afraid the children of our children will find that they need to pass the same message to their grandchildren. WE are living systems with many hidden secrets for us to uncover. We complicate things further by what you wrote elegantly "Our way of life, our education, our social associations are all that of primitive beings no matter how advanced our knowledge is - we are products of a marketed, conditioned and ignorantly bounded beliefs, each living in siloed boundaries". We need to clean our pocket of thinking.22/03/2017 #29 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#23 We engage in lifestyle activities that first damage the microbes that were instrumental to the creation of life and then our life choices empower the harmful microbes that are alien to human wellness.
It is only in recent years that the medical community has been forced to come out of its individual silo's and connect brain and gut health, because of a few whole system minded health professionals have began pointing out a relationship between gut microbes and the brain. Even today the world of medicine has an inadequate understanding of the gut-brain relationship. http://www.nature.com/news/the-tantalizing-links-between-gut-microbes-and-the-brain-1.18557
Once we know that to be human is to be a living system, we change our relationship from a social and tribal one to an intelligent and integrated one. Our children's children will come to know that world - and recognize us as the primitives we really are - the one's that at least have began finding our way out of the industrial and medieval caves. Our way of life, our education, our social associations are all that of primitive beings no matter how advanced our knowledge is - we are products of a marketed, conditioned and ignorantly bounded beliefs, each living in siloed boundaries.
We think out of our own pockets instead of creating pockets of humanity - a humanity that understands our partner organisms within us that make us whole. What is the single biggest problem with healthcare in the United States but pockets full of money - not pockets of humanity connecting with other pockets of humanity.

We live in an age where the leaders who are 21st Century can view time as a transformation. Those are rare leaders. Jeff Bezos is an example of a leader that has transformed time, some may not like what Amazon is becoming but he is a transformational leader. The transactional sets a limit and for most people it might be appropriate to set life at that level, and thus not only do we become time obsessive but we remain in the past if our natural response to time is transactional.

You can make more money, but you can't make more time. When you give someone your time, you are giving them a portion of your life that you'll never get back. Your time is your life. That is why the greatest gift you can give someone is your time.19/03/2017 #14 Sara JacoboviciAnother thought to add to the discussion @Matt 🐝 Sweetwood. The returns and refunds can not come from time, but definitely from the experiences in our time. The choices we make about what we carry over and what we leave behind from those experiences into the next time, makes a difference.

I thank both of you for the inspiration.13/03/2017 #47 Sara JacoboviciI just read a post by LaRae Quy and thought I would share an excerpt from that which I think connects to your discussion about trust. "TRUST YOUR DOUBTS -
Intuition that has been noticed (through nagging feelings), fed (by rigorous pursuit of information), and properly vetted (testing assumptions) will ultimately lead to something that is more concrete. We’ve all experienced the feeling of doubt, apprehension, and even fear when it comes to following our gut. Acknowledge these feelings because they are ways your subconscious is trying to tell you that something is there. You may not always be in a dangerous situation, but it’s important to notice when, and how, feelings come up so you recognize them when it does matter."13/03/2017 #46 Liesbeth Leysen, MSc.

GrinbergYou pose many perplexing yet highly relevant questions, Liesbeth. You really caught my attention with this truism (which won't change any time soon, or possibly ever for human civilization): "...the universe remains an ocean of secrets."
Per brain freezing, I'm not sure of the science to which you refer. However, I've been fascinated by the concept of "transhumanism" (the brain/mind/spirit/soul transcends and exists in a non-physical state) Those who watched the Hollywood film, Transcendence (starring Johnny Depp) might recall the concept.
My own non-scientific, neophyte understanding of how this could theoretically work is as follows: 1) the human brain would first be precisely mapped out via a super computer simulation. 2) that simulation of one's brain could then be downloaded into any number of theoretical forms, such as a microchip or whatever replaces it, an advanced intelligent humanoid robot, and/or exist infinitely in cyberspace.
Another option is cryogenic freezing one's entire body at very low temperatures to be "perfectly" preserved after death, with the hope that some future technology with be able to revive life/brain/heart, etc. This is why I love science fiction, some of which ultimately transitions to science fact in due time.

Comments20/03/2017 #18 Anonymous#17 Oh. It's good to be back. You're too kind. I needed a break, for my own balance, nothing to do with anyone else, ultimately. I came back because the free flowing share of learning here is unique. Imperfectly so, yet unique nonetheless. I still have much to do in that regards, learning that is, and there is an opportunity to do so here in conjunction with my inner reflections that I can not deny. Thank you for sharing. I must read more of the authors and articles you mentioned because yes, this, "we can each think the best, do the best and live according to our humanity," means a lot to me. Thank you, deeply! Love, Melissa, from Canada but now living in America, who happens to just be and BE, it's a flux.17/03/2017 #17 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#16 It means a lot to me to see you active again on beBee Melissa - there was a moment last year when Deb 🐝 Helfrich and I contemplated the return of a great spirit and these moments are a felt-experience because we know what we notice.
I do think that we need to look at the word "revolution" and the word "spin" and see how one has continually been connected to other - and yet what is contained under our skin is a biological miracle and for sure as we evolve in our own skin, and the quality of our homes, and from there kindred spirits and somewhere along the line, our societal system gets to mess with that, rather than let life be. I am more akin, as a result, to give the word "evolution" a chance - and I hope we can find peace in that nurture.
Our regards also focus upon those with difficulties and Aaron Skogen 's recent post about him helping Haitians brings that home. There are plenty of people in this world of ours without any personal brand but with massive amounts of humanity and this is the greatest blessing of all, to know the good that is within people that we are among. The kind of people Aaron brought water to, and tomorrow at my Saturday speakers club I hope to a listen to an international student speak, her name is Christelle, she is from Haiti and she is Christelle - who happens to be from Haiti.
Sometimes we forget the reality of this knowing because the pull on our attention can draw our senses away rather than closer to what matters and where life is actually lived. Sometimes a difficult challenge gets in the way of what matters and then we can pray those have the strength to battle thorough. We can each think the best, do the best and live according to our humanity.17/03/2017 #16 AnonymousI've read this a few times now... I often feel like a very weird person, but maybe it's because I took this thought to heart once upon a time: "The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are. You trade in your reality for a role. You trade in your sense for an act. You give up your ability to feel, and in exchange, put on a mask. There can't be any large-scale revolution until there's a personal revolution, on an individual level. It's got to happen inside first.” ~Jim Morrison ("The doors of perception are wide open" Huxley/Morrison/Blake AND @CityVP). Thank you for writing this, I must noodle it some more. 5 stars and then some!17/03/2017 #15 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#10 Dear Gert [ @Gert 🐝 Scholtz the chief gift of life is what we have inside of us and what we have inside of us contain answers unique to who we are. This takes me to an idea of image and being which I will try to articulate later on today as another buzz.
Our senses can bombard us with answers rather than liberate natural answers within, and to develop extraordinary sense must accompany an inner sense of freedom. I am thinking even if the world outside of us isn't free, what we take in and what flows out of us depends on the quality we nurture within. I think all of us don't give ourselves the permission to be. Why seek revolution in society when we have not sought evolution within ourselves?17/03/2017 #14 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#11 There are two things that is worth thinking about
What is the difference between wanting to get rid of something and things falling away because they no longer serve a purpose or way
The other is self-awareness - is it a trying or a becoming? Ultimately for me self-awareness is arriving to a point where we would never go back to the old way of thinking, because it is obsolete because we have learned to see. At the same time we have to be excessively kind to ourselves because self-awareness as a learning may trigger regret.17/03/2017 #13 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#9 Yes, Laurent, I can see how refraction can take us to a place that is creative instead of an inevitable end destination called idealism. On thinking about this our inability to refract probably is more responsible for bringing us to dead ends.
I can see how that opens rather than closes possibility. Refraction is a great suggestion in terms of discovering our own extraordinary sense. Just when we head off in a far more creative direction, the paradox is critical thinking, questioning why we refracted.
If we are not reflective about this we get stuck, but if we can be reflective - we make creative and critical a catalyst to each other - allowing our right brain freedom and our left brain control.
Ultimately the question becomes, what would this change, and one thing it should change is that if we cannot coexist in our own contradictory mind, how do we expect to coexist in the world=at-large?16/03/2017 #11 🐝 Fatima G. Williams@CityVP 🐝 Manjit This buzz is a sensory feeder that awakens me to find my extra-ordinary senses. IMHO my senses reflect me as person and if I don't realise myself because of senses overload or senses deprivation I'm destroying me or getting on that road to self-destruction.
"Why do I want to make a living out of pushing the drug of certainty into people's lives, when uncertainty is the norm."
Which is the drug we have been fed with since school. I firmly believe my true self-discovery and self-development begins with uncertainty filled with self-questioning/reasoning which is when I use my extra-ordinary senses which can therewith be alerted and utilized by self-awakening.
But most of times I'm smoking (using my common sense ) due to the nicotine of certainity which my self is conditioned which I need to get rid of.The only known remedy for me is learning and discovering my extra-ordinary senses and living in the Now.
I salute you for this extra-ordinary buzz.16/03/2017 #9 Anonymous#6 Thank you @CityVP 🐝 Manjit for excellent reply so wise as agile. I think a better approach might be refraction. Let me invite you to think of it like a beam of light shining through a prism as the cover of Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon album.
"Of all the definitions of man, the worst is that he is a rational animal." - Anatole France, Le Petit Pierre (1918)16/03/2017 #8 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#2 Siraj, learning in digital medium is a humble pursuit rather than an affirmation.
I look upon learning in this space as an emergent practice i.e. no two people have the same learning pathway, just as no two people have the exact replicated DNA code.
In working with digital code I see learning equivalency with our own DNA code. Instead of learning in natural ways, we have culture code dictating digital code.
The digital lexicon is moving much slower than the technological taxonomy that is producing new capabilities. No wonder technologists are investing more time on the internet-of-things where computers talk to computers.
Culture code is tribal. Digital code is new. DNA code is who we are and who can be because this code equals our evolution.
Tribal is the past, and what is the point of being increasingly tribal when it keeps our biology in the cave?16/03/2017 #7 siraj shaik#3 Observed the image "with 2 integrated options in each block and compromising 15 blocks by three governed factors which can lead to many combinations of perspectives and the finest perceptions of evaluation from resulting counts is complex function and which of those can be the efficient and which can be shortest path function and which of those gives highest yields.. oh! anyone to chalk out those all". Just scratched my head in the orangutan way of style.16/03/2017 #6 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#3 Dear Laurent, that "singularity of the context" is actually becoming frighteningly true, that computers are learning human action and displacing people from both blue and white collar jobs, but human action is not learning to adapt to computers. It is so absurd that some countries are now thinking of paying people to learn rather than work,
The irony is that we have to teach ourselves to learn in these new digital environments and hopefully engage that which actually works, so nations start studying their own people. If nations know that there are going to be these gaps then fix the educational and work training system rather than expect success from ways and actions of people who are not aware of systemic realities or progressive/sustainable relationships.
Nations have no need currently to ask or study their citizens, for even after the Trump election, the same old ways of tribal practice persist. It is frightening how many people are welcoming new technologies without a comparative shifts in mindset.
For sure we have the gift of digital speed and network intelligence but are we seem too set in our old ways that we won't even learn from our kids or our grand-kids how to shape a new way of learning and working with digital properties.
The singularity it might not be, but technological change is trouncing individual human change - and that represents a great amount of rework, waste and non-value add. Here I am only talking about adapting at a personal level as a digital unit of one.16/03/2017 #4 Ali AnaniDear @CityVP 🐝 Manjit- I am still reading thoroughly your buzz, but I feel mesmerized. Your wrote "So it is I thought about two forces that create dysfunction, namely the overloading of my senses and equally sense deprivation". I used the term sense deprivation. You talk about center of swinging and I discussed the vortices of turbulents. I am eager to find out if it is the sense of synchronicity that is active.

Comments18/03/2017 #123 Ali Anani#121 You aren't off the mark dear @David B. Grinberg. I read reports on the missing senses that we have, but are unable to locate. This is similar to the Periodic Table in which few elements with certain properties were anticipated well before their discovery.Yes, Euclidean thinking is outdated and now we have the fourth dimension of spacetime. I shall not be surprised if we have new senses to fill in some gaps.18/03/2017 #121 David B. GrinbergWow, belated kudos on yet another thought-provoking buzz, Ali -- in addition to all the exemplary comments below. A few thoughts, if I may:
1) Your example of Aristotle reminded me of Copernicus, who convinced people of his time that Earth was the center of the Universe and all things cosmic resolved around us. Other then being completely wrong from an astronomical perspective, this also smacked of narcissism. Of course, it's all always about the conventional "we" or "us" -- why is that? What sense makes humankind so arrogant?
2) I'm curious as to whether there may be extra senses for which the collective "we" and science are not yet fully aware? For example, is "Extra Sensory Perception" (ESP) a monolithic sense? Could there be other innate senses that are so commonplace that they are hidden in plain view, so to speak? I'm reminded of theoretical physicists who postulate about extra dimensions in space and time (per "String Theory" or "Parallel Universes") . While we apparently live in a 3-dimensional world, that's not true for every living creature or plant on the planet. Thus, could there be hidden senses similar to hidden dimensions, for which we will only become aware once humans reach a higher state of consciousness and/or intelligence?
Does this make any sense? Thank you for indulging me on this...17/03/2017 #119 Tausif Mundrawala#114 First of all I would apologize for replying you late as I was logging off from the office when I read your message and could only press the relevant tab. As far as casting a spell is concerned on a certain person than that poor one becomes numb and would not understand the meaning of the word sense. As far as the magic of love is concerned than definitely it creates a sense of belonging and caring.
Here I am contradicting my earlier statement in respect of a self aware person who can sense the damage happening to him/ her and to his/her family. I think this answer would suffice to your question, Sir.17/03/2017 #118 Deb 🐝 HelfrichDearest @Ali Anani, it was the case that I received a lot of ridicule from my father about not having common sense when I was a child. I hadn't thought about that particular scenario for quite some time, and the discussions within your buzz allowed me to think through this common occurrence in a way that brought a lot of closure to some lingering limiting beliefs.
One of the things that my uncommon sense always brought into focus for me, is the hidden deeper level of how synchronicity is not a rare or random emergence.
Logic was absolutely my least favorite area of philosophical inquiry, because the straight line march of thoughts represent a rather stilted reality in my opinion. Of course, there are areas of life and endeavor when this sort of thinking is de rigueur. However, when it comes to organic life - the mystery and awe of what it means to be alive from the tiniest single-cell organism to humans in all our flawed complexity - we need to set aside logic many times to fully comprehend the richness of being alive.
I wholeheartedly feel the power of the Jung quote insofar as swinging between right and wrong is a zero sum game. Judgement offers us nothing in many facets of life. The simple phrase that has unhinged me these last few weeks is 'judgement is punishment' lining those 3 words in that order has reverberated through my life in a profound manner.
Those humans occupied with right versus wrong are playing in the shallow end of the pool of life, because the deep work is in teasing, prying, or creating sense from nonsense. Learning from the currently inexplicable. Letting a profound concept emerge from the quiet, subtle influence of 3 words with infinite complexity.17/03/2017 #115 Yogesh Sukal@Ali Anani I was considering senses as logical as we can conceive and understand them knows logic behind.
It's magic of mind instead as referring as nonsense as it's mysterious and can't understood with our logic.
For example, dream with subconscious, even though it's not real but still we experience as like we do with our senses in reality.16/03/2017 #113 Ali Anani#110 I appreciate greatly your comment dear @🐝 Fatima G. Williams. You wrote " If I use reasoning filled with learning to define how to work my senses I benefit more than when I use logic to define how senses work". I called for the two to work together. I have to study your idea as I respect differences with you to the maximum degree. May be you find the expansion of this buzz in the buzz I have already published you may find in part more on how I think.16/03/2017 #112 Yogesh SukalThank you this thoughtful post which inspired to think.
In my opinion pendulum of mind oscillates between logic and magic.
Our conceivable 5 senses are logic as they work with their principles and we concieve the same in our dimensions but on other hand minds magic which power subconscious mind, imaginations which takes us beyonds our conceivable dimension

Senses are like the mixture in the air that forms the clouds. The right mix provides a pleasant rain and a rainbow And the wrong mixture causes a thunderstorm or even worse. If I use reasoning filled with learning to define how to work my senses I benefit more than when I use logic to define how senses work. Senses are a part of me and I wouldn't want nonsense messing around with it.
@CityVP 🐝 Manjit
I love and second Mr Manjit's comment here.
"The journey of focusing on extraordinary sense distances me from common sense - and the judgements that result from application of common sense." This is an excellent way to discern ourselves from people with common sense.
Our senses ( The way we see, think , speak ) are not common. Then why do we call it common sense. As Mr Manjit explains it's an extra-ordinary sense. It's Us.
Common sense was designed by educational institutions and the society for people who live like a herd of sheep trained to move in one direction.
Like an election that just happened with people using their common sense disregarding their unique senses which would have told them not to follow the flock.16/03/2017 #107 Ali Anani#105 WOW! I have just dropped a comment on your synchronicity buzz @Deb🐝 Lange and to find your comment here. Amazing synchronicity. More amazing is your comment. You wrote- like the eye of the storm.

Comments14/03/2017 #9 Susan RooksYou are so right, @John Whitehead Change is scary for a lot of people, but I think it also depends on the type of change for some.
I am usually unhappy with technological changes because I struggle just to keep with the fast-moving technology that now surrounds us (it's not my comfort zone at all). But moving to a new area, taking a different job, trying out something new -- those don't scare me much. Maybe it's because I've lived long enough to realize that one way or another, things usually work out just fine.13/03/2017 #5 Donna-Luisa EversleyGreat post @John Whitehead, and always relevant discussion. Change is something everyone knows yet not everyone accepts. Its a mindset change, and that can be difficult. I like the way you have broken it down. Change matters in all spheres of life for evolution and growth to be present.13/03/2017 #4 Harvey LloydChange is a process, but leadership is struggling to express the need for change. The teams of today are very specialized and focused in a direction. From personal brands to personal change management we have individuals and change represents a drift from their personal concepts. With the advent of the internet change is now moving faster than ever, only because we can see it in mass. Change used to be (Yes i said it) slow as communications were slow.
Change management is a different animal today and has to bet met with more strategic thinking and long term views.
Great post, thanks.11/03/2017 #2 Anonymous@John Whitehead It is clear to me that the pace of organisational change is increasing. I have seen lots of "change projects" and they are all focused on delivering like the typical IT project where when it is finished everyone high fives and says we delivered it! What is missing it seems to me, is the need to embed recognition that change is ongoing. People need the tools to live with change, not just the tools to go through a particular change at a particular point in an organisation's life. My sense of this is it is a much more personal thing than simply a program that can be delivered on mass.

Race is supposed to be "color blind" under the law and in theory. Therefore, people should only be judged on content of character, morals and merit principles. In fact, according to the US Census Bureau, whites in the USA will be a minority by about 2044. That is, compared to the so-called "minority-majority" (combination of all traditionally known minority groups). So does this mean whites should then receive special treatment, hands outs or a hand up, based on minority status? No it does not. Moreover, even if it did mean that, I doubt it would ever happen in America.14/03/2017 #32 Phillip HubbellAt a point, when the prevailing philosophy hasn’t worked, I sometimes think what the world needs is a new approach to the problems that beset it. I don’t believe that the insistence on blaming the present for the past will ever bear the fruit of understanding. I don’t even believe there is a desire for understanding. The prevailing approach to fixing the world serves only to stoke the argument. In my opinion, what will need to happen is for the societies to draw a line in time and move forward without thinking about how things got this way…as thinking about how things got this way has solved little. Just the suggestion of this as an idea will cause the rending of cloth and gnashing of teeth among those so heavily invested in the wrongs of history that they can’t foresee a future without them.14/03/2017 #31 🐝 Fatima G.

Thank you @David B. Grinberg for sharing your knowledge with us constantly. Close28/01/2017 #29 Claire L 🐝 CardwellTrue equality means not discriminating against any individual based on race -- period! @David B. Grinberg v. well put. I wish the young people of South Africa would embrace more non violent ways of protesting society's ills. Burning down a brand new law library or computer centre, rioting on the streets and pillaging and looting is not going to have the long term impact visionary leaders like Martin Luther King or Gandhi had.21/01/2017 #27 Donna-Luisa Eversley@David B. Grinberg you have written in my opinion a masterpiece...And I don't say that often at all. It makes me cry and feel a lot of feelings. I will return with a response, because it matters. We are where we are because of a few, and we are able to enjoy all we have been able to because of MLK16/01/2017 #20 Devesh 🐝 BhattIf we foster violence, it is easier for others to "divide and rule".
Non violence is an absolute must for unity, ill will makes us vulnerable to question others beside us and perhaps slip into violent acts of division.
Sustained Mass Movements cannot succeed with ill will.16/01/2017 #19 David B. GrinbergI appreciate your important global insights @debasish majumder and @Pascal Derrien. Many thanks for taking the time to read and comment.
Being a positive person, I'm reminded of that saying: hope springs eternal. I think as the younger generations come of age, discriminatory factors like race, gender, ethnicity, etc., will be less and less of an issue because it appears to me that this new generation sees people as people -- rather than separating people out by racial, ethinic, gender groups, etc. Moreover, in the USA at least, the white population will increasingly become the real minority group as traditionally known minorities comprise an increasing share of the population. For example, Hispanics/Latinos and Asians are the two fastest growing demographic groups in America right now. Further, the U.S. Census Bureau projects this trend to continue well into the future (see www.census.gov),15/01/2017 #18 Pascal DerrienMLK said I think it was him something along the lines that at time of great moral distress one cannot remain neutral we are living in those times I believe I don't know in the US but I see many activists on the ground so there is hope I suppose @David B.

Grinberg!15/01/2017 #15 debasish majumderlovely and relevant post indeed in accordance to the present context @David B. Grinberg! i do believe that, non-violence is the only tool to foster and establish perpetual peace. eye for an eye cannot be any positive resolution. on contrary, the provisions in the constitution to ensure freedom of speech and expression being gagged by the despotic administration and foil the very essence of democracy by harnessing intolerance towards others opinion and views can lead to a catastrophe, which as sensible soul, nobody would beckon. unfortunately, people in the helm of administration do not desirous to heed this pillar of democracy to be restored with its due dignity! wish, sensible notion may prevail before any evil intention to restore democratic platform amenable, where non-violent measures may encouraged and welcome. however, Great and pertinent post! enjoyed read. thank you very much for the share.15/01/2017 #13 Brian McKenzieHistory is vastly important. It is unfortunate that more do not read it seriously or critically. Obama's Legacy should not be tied to Martin Luther King Jr, but to V. I . Lenin - it is from there that his ideology of 'Community Organization' came from. Nearly Line for Line, Lie for Lie ~ plagiarized liberally from the Red Soviet Union's platform. *And before y'all lob the usual epithets - you should READ Lenin and Obama side by side.
