I can see it in 2 ways, 2 ways so far removed from each other, extreme opposite ends of the spectrum, both feasible, believable, both brilliant, from the very same story line. Amazing that it elicited both reactions from me at the same time, (still does).

    Yes life is like that and I talk about perspectives and perceptions ALL the time.

    Every year, events occur in Nature and the cosmos that make it special.
    And the Human Being is part of them.

    #21 Yes, i most say that me and the wife, of the boomer gen. long for those discussions we used to have about rational ideals and exploration. We both feel as though you have to get your point across in 140 characters or less. So mostly we are quiet.

    The amazing aspects of general conversation they almost feel guided these days. As if a map exists that folks will guide you to a place. A shallow place and then the impending vote, where i am suppose to say, "I know, right." My real come back is not acceptable in most company.

    Secondarily most conversation within our age group tends to be negative towards politics, retirement or young people. My only solace is work. We have created a can do culture and it is exciting to work with the team.

    Family is the main focus these days. Social not so much. Thanks for your feedback and kind words.

    #13 Thank you @Harvey Lloyd always amazing to receive your comments and thoughts. Interesting enough some research, which comes at the start of the Age UK's annual iTea and Biscuits week, revealed that on average 61 per cent of older people in England are offline and that there are only four areas in England where the percentage of older people online, outnumber those who are offline. Age UK Cheshire encouraged older people who had never been online, to try out the technology for themselves at their Techy Tea Party, which was held on Wednesday 18th September at Castle Community Centre, Northwich. The event was for all older people who wanted to get to grips with digital technology. Personally, I still believe that tea, biscuits and great company does not need to be accompanied by a smart phone :-)

    #11 Absolutely @Deborah Levine, I always have time for tea and Human 2 Human time! :-) Your question across what will happen to the elderly in a world where many don't interact with other generations. Will we lose what they have to offer and will they be isolated in senior citizen sites? It's not just the children who are at risk is one that I often write about, however, my views are this question is not only isolating the elderly but all generations are affected with isolation, loneliness, depression and ultimately mental health issues. The facts, do we actually have time for our most precious relationships, do we give the time to build lasting, loving relationships around trust and values or do we constantly feel we can always do better with the latest api or technology app? Staggering advances in technology, communications and sciences across the world is one of the defining aspects of the last few decades. Our childhoods taught us to value love; but our institutions, cities, and technology have taught us to fear commitment and put choice first. We are trapped in a self-perpetuating cycle of emotional distance with each other. Most of us really want love at some point, but our actions are at war with this desire. We maintain emotional distance because we fear commitment and rejection, not because that is our true self.

My go to guy on the subject of slowness is Carl Honore, he wrote In the Praise of Slow and has a slow movement, it is quite crazy to think that you can now do courses in Speed Yoga or attend a Drive Thru Funeral. A magazine in Britain even published an article recently on how to bring about an orgasm in 30 seconds! So even in the bedroom it’s, “On your marks, get set, go!” Our speedaholism is out of control, and we all know it. Perhaps we should revolutionize tea in the afternoon! :-)

    #8 Thank you @Proma 🐝 Nautiyal so lovely to hear about your love for tea and tradition and for your wonderful comments. There’s something about that firm bitterness that sparks devotion: believe it or not the British consume 60 billion cups per year, according to the Tea and Infusions Organisation. But for me culture is the invisible bond which ties the people of a community together. Our tea, our art, our literature and most importantly our language and communication define us. They make us who we are. It has been rightly said that a community is only as strong as its language and culture. There is an amazing quote by Andre Malraux'"Culture is the sum of all the forms of art, of love, and of thought, which, in the course of centuries, have enabled man to be less enslaved."

Spanning the two worlds, I'm now needed to teach the art of writing to young computer geeks because inter-personal communication is unfamiliar to them. They do indeed live in a different world, but I find them adorable and open to my skills. My question is what will happen to the elderly in a world where many don't interact with other generations. Will we lose what they have to offer and will they be isolated in senior citizen sites? It's not just the children who are at risk.

    Lovely buzz @Geoff Hudson-Searle! I share your love for tea time and biscuits, as it is pretty much a tradition here, in India. We make our tea with a lot of love, brewed with cardamoms and other condiments (especially during winters) with a dash of milk and sugar. We love tea and tea time. This is the time (early mornings and evenings) that the family comes together, leaving all gadgets aside, and we just talk, discuss, learn, reminisce during our tea time. Thank you for this wonderful buzz. Really enjoyed reading it and learning about the history of tea time.

    Many great thinkers and scientists married more than once. According to Russell's words, his yearning for love was fully satisfied when he was 80 and married his fourth wife. He also said that knowledge and love are closely intertwined and together produce a good life.
    If there is no certainty in knowledge, is there a love that is so certain and without a doubt? I think there is, nay I am certain.

    I believe, @Gert Scholtz, that uncertainty is an existential state that does not preclude action. In that state, we recognize that action carries with it the risk of being wrong, but that we can see the need to act on the best of the alternatives as we perceive them... I think. The only certainty is that we live constantly and inescapably with uncertainty. And we are better for it. Cheers!

    @Gert Scholtz, I present regularly on the human mind and what I share is that we need Certainty to fulfill the stable part of ourselves, our Core Identity, the person we are when we strip away all the roles we play. We need Uncertainty for the constantly changing roles we play outside our Core Identity.
    Our roles thrive on Uncertainty because they are fluid. Yet, most people try to treat their roles as if they are stable and permanent. As soon as they believe a role to be stable, it changes. This, I believe, is the reason so many people can't find happiness and satisfaction; they are trying to fulfill roles that are constantly changing, instead of their Core Identity, which they have lost in the roles they play.

    #1 I agree, the "Singularity" is almost treated with a religious significance, however, it seems that with Watson, we are headed that way. Artificial intelligence is barely understood by the people who study it, so for us poor mortals, it is an enigma. Even if the machines don't reach sentience as we understand it, or don't really. The question still remains, in their ability for logical thought, what if they think we are indeed the fuckwits we are? What if they decide that even though there is good within us, the opportunity for growth, charity and empathy, that our ability to be cocks outweighs that?
    Zacharias 🐝 Voulgaris
    14/11/2017 #1 Zacharias 🐝 Voulgaris
    Singularity is more of a sci-fi topic than anything else. The idea that machine will become conscious (like us, but armed with superintelligence too) is based on questionable assumptions, such as that the consciousness we experience is a side-effect of our neurological development. However, this has not been proven and it's considered to be the "hard problem" of neuroscience, a problem that experts in the field are still very puzzled about. There is no doubt that one day (probably sooner rather than later) machines will possess superintelligence, but whether they become conscious because of that is a matter of debate. Whatever the case, when A.I. scientists who have their feet on the ground talk about this, they try to veer away from the term singularity, since they focus on the science part of the matter, instead of the science fiction lore that futurists fancy propagating to the mainstream. After all, A.I. is much more than the very limited view these people have, while its ramifications are puzzling even for people who have some understanding of the field (the A.I. scientists mentioned previously). So, perhaps it's best to not pay too much attention to what the singularity people talk about, since the whole thing sounds more like a cult, than anything akin to science.

    #19 @Pascal Derrien draws these kind of questions as we ponder the 4 dimensional space he created. With humility i would like an attempt at answering the questions:

    Where do we fall to when we're living on the edge, Pascal?
    We are on the edge because of experiences and time. Time each day requires something new of us. Yesterday was figured out and we had it handled, today brings new challenges. Whether we retain the edge is only certified if we understand the edge itself. The edge is a position of understanding that wisdom of yesterday must yield to new wisdom today. But should we fall we need only find the wisdom required. And most likely seek some forgiveness.
    And how do we find our balance again?
    Balance is found in the doover that seeking forgiveness provides.
    Do our memories span time and generations?
    Our memories do span time. Each day we create memories that not only we carry, but also that we created in others. They carry memories forward. The handing down of memories insures that wisdom carries forward.
    Or does our imagination tease our senses?
    Imagination is the basis of invention. Thinking outside the box is really a new phrase that references imagination. Yes imagination teases the senses. WIth prolonged thought our senses begin to see it in reality. It may not exist as imagined but it is new and different.

    Thanks for the questions.

    What an excellent piece of writing! I could actually visualize each and every dialogue being delivered. The lieutenant getting ready for the attack, the young entrepreneur gearing up for his day at work after giving a speech on guerilla marketing. So intriguing! This seems like something of a parallel universe kind of setting. And of course, the similarity in surnames and that they were actually related. The point about high iron that drew back the point on how the lieutenant lost his life.

    I loved it, @Pascal Derrien. I wish I could see it enacted. How amazing it would be! Thank you for writing this wonderful piece.

    The goal of writing critiques (this includes comments to articles and posts), says Karen Hertsberg managing editor of the spelling software Grammarly, is to help the writer expand their potential. The best feedback is that, she says, which leaves the writer feeling they’ve had an awakening. Your comments about Sara Jacobovici’s recent response, to a post you wrote, seems as if it did just that. Her comment not only encouraged you but awakened you to new thoughts and ideas. Not to mention inspired you to write on a new - related - topic. My belief is comments to posts should encourage further conversation - even debate. Not beat other commenters down in order to quell the conversation and/or to turn it in their direction. As always, we should agree to disagree.

    What a great message @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee. Let us be the light that shines on others instead of the light that burns others. There will always be some who would rather take from someone and make them miserable but in the end, I think karma surely catches up. I never wish anything bad for anyone but sometimes lessons aren't learned until a person experiences their own darkness. It's with hope that those who have caused pain to others or take from others gain empathy if they find themselves in a similar situation. If everyone could just remember we are all human and every human has their flaws, maybe, just maybe the world would be a much better place.

    You draw the most enthralling comments, dear @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee, and @Edward Lewellen's question, @Sara Jacobovici's musing brings up very important issues; have some become so adept at deception, do they even know they are deceiving anymore? Edward also said the book he's reading 'details how people assume personas over the Internet they would not in person'. I'm deliberately surmising we all do that; we are not the person we appear to be, but in a way, we are better?
    I react. Someone unknowingly walks in front of a car; I stop them. Someone screams for help; I go and help. All of us here would do the same I think. These random acts are really devoid of thought; mere instinct. But am I that same person on a keyboard? Dunno....great thoughts you raise!

    #3 In the absence of good, how do we know what is evil? There is no absence of either. Both exist, for no other reason than they just are. This reminds me of the Stephen Crane quote: A man said to the Universe, "Sir, I exist", to which the Universe replied, "That may be so, but it instills no sense of obligation in me." The universe and the laws of physics just are. They have no discernment on who is good and who is not. Like attracts like, and your actions will determine the outcome.

    At the moment "man" became self aware is the moment that free will emerged. The Sioux referred to the "Great Spirit" as "Wakan Tanka". Romans 1:20 and 2:15 discuss the nature of man without witnessed awareness of God.

    The story of good and evil began at the moment of self awareness. The story takes on one of two shapes. The balance of the forces or the life within the forces as i exist. The existence of others precludes the first and leaves us only with the second. Neither wolf can win or lose unless their exists some higher law of existence. I use the law firmly here as this is where we find ourselves. The go along to get along will of the people is challenging the laws of our heart. Born of love and challenged by fear the heart must make sense of its environment.

    Without absolutes then the heart is left to defend itself within a vacuum. If the heart can not assume that others are bound by the same scriptural law then it must choose the right wolf to survive. Existentially we may speak of the good wolf, but internally our fears will have us feed the evil one. This is the conflict of the world today.

    We have abandoned absolutes that guided us for many years, for the dark wolfs cloaked attempt at unity that will, in the end, only divide. Materialism is the venture of the dark wolf. It separates us from humanity into groups of have's and have not's. This creates a government plea for special interest whereby we separate ourselves under the roof of a government that benifits from these polarized issues.

    When the dark wolf appears in our life how should we handle it, under what law should we insure that we have not become a dark wolf ourselves? This is the choice that we are running from today. All choices should rest on a fundamental shared scriptural belief, or the choice will always be the dark wolf.

    Enjoyed your thoughts, thanks

    What you think becomes. Since you are 'Creator', the universal principle is that it will send you what is in line with your image. It is the 'grand design' realizing what you create. The flaw indeed is to present the loa as if it's all about acquiring and gaining while in the early days it didn't had anything to do with gain but development for greater good of (wo)man. Since commercial spirits picked it up schemes were set up like loa or 'the secret' only telling part of the story. A world religion, once with force brought upon people, also gives half the story out of personal exclusivity and gain. In many instances people simply don't know the entire formula. For the universal principles, older then world, always have been and will be we have left. It is as easy as that. The difference between believing and knowing is the state of (wo)man. Believe is futile costing one time, focus and often energy.money to continue believing into .... Knowing is understanding 'IT' is .... Whatever ones desire of 'IT'. Ones one KNOW 'IT' is, .... 'IT' shall manifest. If one KNOWS there is no room for doubt and need to repeat or reaffirm. So believing basically is useless.

    Good publish though, Thank you very much Donna :O)

    @Pascal Derrien...This is a discussion that needs to happen...between patient, their health care proxy (if they have one...EVERYONE SHOULD) and their primary care giver...and your wishes be put in writing with an advance directive through legal counsel...Loooooooooong before it becomes necessary to make such decisions and while you are of sound mind...because people have a very difficult time letting their loved ones die. When that time comes family members can become over wrought with emotion and their better judgement becomes clouded...Believe me, had I not been made aware of my father's wishes at the end of his life, my love for him very well may over ridden his desire to have no artificial intervention to keep him alive.

    That said, as he lay dying it was difficult to watch him perish slowly before my eyes...as his stroke did not take him immediately...If there had been laws in place to protect those willing to assist the process, his suffering would have ended much sooner...But for the reasons @Ian Weinberg states..." litigation drives the industry to over-service inappropriately until the last breath." that did not happen for him...I had to push and push and push...only to be told..."well, he's not quite there yet."

    Really?!?!? It's been almost two weeks without food or water...he is struggling to breathe and his feet are BLUE! How much more THERE does he need to be??? When I left that evening I told the nurse...ENOUGH...either you help him or I will...Two hours later I got the call...Happy New Year dad...RIP.

    #23 Good question that I have no answers to (which means it's the BEST question!) @Pascal Derrien! I always like to think of 'faith' as being different to 'religion' - pedantic on my part, as I'm a crap Christian, and I'm pretty sure it would go against any doctrine of that ilk. But I have pretty strong views on 'youth in asia' as something we MUST consider as voluntary sooner or later, despite the pit-falls. At 7.5 billion, do we have a duty to the generations we spawn? I think we do! As @Ian Weinberg indicates, there is no dignity in dying in agony, and we are kept unnaturally alive for way too long. I used to work in a hospice, and most of the dying wanted just that - they sensed the natural order of it, but were given antibiotics for 'old-man's death': pneumonia. We should treat dying and death with all the respect and sanctity of birth. We don't erect statutes upon out baby's birth....
    As we're so very good and messing things up as a species, the very least we can do is accept bowing out gracefully, no?

    Sorry - @Pascal Derrien; this is so beautiful and important a buzz...I have long thought about writing about voluntary euthanasia, which I certainly agree with, even though I'm Christian. To me it's a 'save a bit of planet' for your kids thing. I have advanced directives in place to begin from now anyhoo. What also pisses me off mightily is the sheer cost of funerals: £6 - 10k where I am. I even devised a business plan for direct-crem that is bare bones (sorry - pun intended), as I'm sick and tired of people being guilted into ridiculous funerals they simply cannot afford.
    My father always used to cry in remembrance of lost soldiers. I think it was in part that he was refused on medical grounds to enlist, and in part 'For the Fallen - Laurence Binyon' which said 'They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old: Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.' Is your life is short, there's less of it to mess up (what I felt my father saw).

    I firmly believe that it should be an individual's choice, if the person is able to chose. Of course, there are numerous scenarios where choice is taken out of an individual's hands and we have reached a juncture where we need to urgently update archaic religious practices based on the vast scenarios medical advances have created.

    In so many ways, we treat the end of our canine companions much more humanely than we treat our fellow humans.

    When I held Tangenyika, as I asked for her to be killed, the peace and serenity of the process was what I want for myself.

    I can certainly understand and support those who will want to never make this final decision, holding out hope until 'nature' finally decides.

    It is time to bring this discussion up and face the complexity of death in the modern world.

    Another important question - why just burial or cremation?

    Both are ecological disasters.

    There is a company in Sweden that is offering a much more organic option > http://www.promessa.se/

    It is what I want. Returning my carbon to the soil, not the atmosphere, without it being enclosed in satin and building materials.

    Healthcare becomes the healthcare industry, medicine becomes hitech and push-button stuff and no one physically examines the patient anymore. And finally, litigation drives the industry to over-service inappropriately until the last breath. The result - no more connection to life and to the essence of what we're all about. And so the 89 year old in agonizing pain due to terminal cancer is forced to undergo more MRI scans and is poisoned with more chemotherapy ... when all they wanted was a bit of pain relief and to die in peace! But the guilt-ridden family demanded it, the doctors feared not to follow the book unquestionably and the hospital needed to push up its revenue. And so the emasculated patient/victim was deprived of the dignity to die in peace as life was inflicted upon their terminal being. This my friends is not evolutionary. We have much work to do.

The fact that she gave the roach credit for helping her find that the phone was missing, and went on to give it a nice funeral shows how kind she is. Such compassion for such a little girl.

    Now I tell you that dragonfly looked dead to me...and two elderly ladies that had been in the pool said it had been floating around there for quite some time...but the kid didn't give up on it...Just sat there talking to it and tapping it on the head...I swear these two old ladies thought she was bonkers until about 45 minutes into her rescue efforts the wings began to flutter...I kid you not...Five minutes later, it flew away!

    #1 but facebook didnt print or generate the content in the traditional sense. It was used ti disseminate the content. Facebook is simply a tool, its a bit like guns, guns dont kill people. Giving nutters free access to guns is what kills people. I mean vans were used in terrorist attacks in Europe to take life. Do we blame vans? Attacking Facebook is a simplistic thing to do, it also suits the agenda of people who dont want free access to sharing if information. I remember being so excited and fascinated by the possibilities of global social networks. Unfortunately as it is with many things in our world humans find a way to fuck it up.

    I'll agree, @Geoffrey Cooling, that Facebook did nothing but help confirm people's biases. I'm not sure having Facebook make money off it, or sway people towards what they now think is acceptable because of Facebook (xenophobia, as an example). That's essentially us praising the propagandist while they say all they're doing is offering a point if view. How many newspaper publishers in Nazi Germany felt no culpability, believing they only printed what the public wanted (or thought they wanted) to read at the time? Culpability is a weird strand of logic, particularly where words are concerned.

    #7 Hi Franci Eugenia,
    Yes, in this life, everything goes too fast. We are children, we grow, we build our family and soon we reach the old age. The days are short, the moments are scarce and it's up to us to know how to enjoy everything in the best way.
    I always say that we should not waste time with intrigues, sorrows and unnecessary discussions ... we must not waste these precious seconds that life offers us with futilities.
    But let us enjoy these good moments with our family, our parents, our children and the good friends that God has bequeathed to us.
    Yes, believe that there will be a time when we will realize that when we shake hands we do not hold our hearts. That who stays today can leave tomorrow and that our course is constantly changing.... This is the secret of life ... !!!

    Thanks for tagging me @Lada 🏡 Prkic. What a beautiful tribute to aging parents @Cassiano Tavares. It's very hard to accept aging, especially if the changes seem to occur in a millisecond. That's how life is though, the older we become, the faster time goes by. I will be forever grateful to my parents for their unconditional love, support and teachings. We all deserve to be treated with love and dignity, no matter the age- it seems as people become 'old' sadly, some are not given that accolade. I can only hope my own children will always treat me as they do now, with love and respect.

    Years ago I refused a "career enhancement opportunity" that required leaving my country. Freshly married, we didn't want to relocate. We would have made much more money, but we have had other priorities in life. Never regretted our decision. I didn't close the book yet. :-)

    Thanks for another excellent blogging buzz, Prakashan.
    Personally, I would not like to relocate but would do so if a prospective employer made me any offer I couldn't refuse in a location where I would be happy. I think it's important to give the same amount of consideration to one's standards of living and immediate surroundings, compared to how much more money one would be making. It just makes good sense to strike the right balance between work and other life priorities.

    I spent the better part of my early career relocating. By the time my bride and I had been married twleve years, we had lived at 9 different addresses. 11 years ago we settled where we are now, and would love to see the kids graduate from the only school system they have known. Yet, if the right opportunity came along, I would do it again. I my mind the right opportunity would need to be an international assignment, or a few Key areas here in the US, I would like to live. But I am no longer driven by relocating for a "better" opportunity, rather I would relocate to enrich my family and my lives through the experiences a new location would offer.

    Great topic and relevant question @Prakashan B.V!

    I relocated in 2012, perhaps not as dramatic as relocating to another country but still a major life change. Since the relo was to keep my job for a few more years, my husband and I agreed it would be a good move for us. We were looking to retire in north Georgia in the near future and this opportunity made it easier for us.

    My employer offered a relo package so we found tenants for our house in Florida and relocated to Atlanta. I retired 2 years later and we're a lot closer to those north Georgia mountains, which is where we want to be.

    We have no regrets except leaving familiar faces and familiar places.

    It's important to weigh the advantages and the disadvantages. You'll never know what's in the next chapter until you turn the page.

In the chaos of dressing for a family event with 3 daughters, my mother would be paused in the act of putting the remaining leg in her pantyhose. My father, forever the silly opportunist, would nudge her forehead ever so slightly and she would tip backward onto the bed. The laughter weakened her so she couldn't sit right back up and we would all be laughing until weak. You know, laughter is aerobic soul music.

    My goodness you have endured so much in life and still struggle to keep your world on track. Friends like you give me the courage to move on in life otherwise we would think we are the only ones who have suffered a lot. We have been taking care of my mom since past many months and it was mentally exhausting. Once she sat on stool by mustering enough strength to comb her hair by herself but her immunity didn't allow her to do so. She was about to fall and I immediately ran and took hold of her. That much I took care of her.

    But you are fighting a battle which is unending as of now and am elated to know that you find respite by engaging into a conversation with all of us. I hope our @Javier 🐝 beBee is taking note that this is really an affinity based platform where we all find friends to console us.

    "Nobody" is really a person who is without love. Your post demonstrates not only love but the hope of all who are entering into crisis. Will i have the courage to love and serve at the level you have presented? I now know that it is possible. Your writing may inspire others through your experiences.

    Not sure of the world you left behind but i would say that today you are a very gracious somebody, i am humbled. Good luck and Godspeed.

    Considering the discussions surrounding posts and comments....@Ian Weinberg has really been a great resource in assisting me in understanding brain function and its impact on our daily lives. Purely in a behavioral way though he has systematically described the physical aspects of the brain and its outcomes as we build memories and assign feelings to them.

    We all post or comment for our own personal reasons. Mine is mostly the fascination with listening, seeing and understanding the many paradigms that get displayed. @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee is a fascinating man. He stretches our paradigms into new places. This will always bring the hard questions from those who don't want to be stretched.

    I would submit the following question for your thoughts. If the post of Dr. Ali Anani was one of three posts being considered for the Nobel Prize and the commentor appeared, would you advise or advocate differently? When we add purpose to our thoughts then sometimes, not always, our advocacy changes. DiSC and understanding who we are can sometimes assist us in finding and winning within our purpose.
