    #15 I 100% share your concern @Pamela L. Williams

    Yep, that pretty much sums it up! Although I have to say the beBee upper epsilon seem to actually listen, no matter how small the issue. Yes, it's still in the start-ups stage and small when compared to other sites but if they stand by what they say this level of listening will continue. (Oh geez, I'm really starting to sound like a beBee booster club, but when you're concerns have been ignored over and over you just can't help but be a little flamboyant in your praise when someone actually does listen!!(#12

    I wish I could have used this presentation in just about every job I've ever had. Trying convince Management that a small problem is going to snowball and create havoc is almost impossible. They see them as 'details' and I've actually been told they don't want to know the details, they just want the final results. Final results = chaos because you didn't want to 'sweat the small stuff'.

    Thanks for sharing this, @Milos Djukic. @Ali Anani, this is a terrific presentation. If only upper management would be open to the truth of it. Have a thriving Thursday.

    Brilliant @Ali Anani. Each slide or a set of 2 or 3 can be a chapter in and of itself. I have pulled out 3 slides related to the "why" that I will like to explore further. Your discussion of time has inspired me to look at fractal time; patterns yet, because of time's essence, there would be "windows of opportunity" for changes.

    #4 The word "Interesting" is all important. Convergent Hives should be interesting because that is the honey that human beings understand, but a divergent hive should not be interesting in a way that actual bees understand - like bees these are simply products of hard work and the honeybee does not want attract interest - if we understood that human interest is important but bee focus is what we learn most from an actual bee - the value of the divergent hive is not to be interesting to the world outside the divergent hive. I am off to sleep, I look forward equally to contributing on Thursday.

    #2 Dear Ali Anani, I have seen the buzz and will come back to it, today I have begun and in the process of setting up my divergent hives - originally I thought 8 but it will now be 10 Divergent Hives. These are in addition to my 4 original convergent hives so I will continue formatting these 10 new divergent hives tomorrow, as well as developing the offline associated systems I need to conduct this divergence here. https://www.bebee.com/groups?type=admingroups and I will return to your buzz on Thursday - then I will be fresh in mind again, also being that the local time where I am right now is well past midnight. Look forward to reading your buzz on Thursday.

    I thought it was absolutely lovely the way you utilized Fibronacci numbers as a demonstration of scaling of fractal thoughts. Highly meaningful and brilliant especially the outward scaling within an organizational view context.

    #56 Dear @Deb Lange- it is amazing how your mind and mine overlap. I was in Turkey last work and only had the opportunity to read your comments now. You highlighted two words wonder and emerge in your two comments. I published yesterday a buzz on Merge to Emerge, which I would love you to comment on, In my response to @CityVP Manjit I highlighted the word wonder. No wonder we are on the same wavelength, Lisa.

    #54 I have wonderful feelings following reading your fractal-like comment dear @CityVP Manjit. Space is increased by removing the language barrier and new fractals are emerging accordingly. Yes, ideas are allowed more space to react and for new ones to emerge.

    What I have learned from when this post first appeared last month is that I am beginning to see even more power of the universality in fractal relationships than even I had considered possible. While BeBee wants to succeed in the United States, I am beginning to identify with like-minded people who were once separated by language. Yet the fractal relationship when we connect with each other beyond the language barrier reveals even greater self-similiarity - and in that I am discovering universality. Yes @Milos Djukic saw those who tamper with fractal relationships will reap what they sow, but as a learner, I feel the fractal in my heart becoming even more intelligent. This is a wonderful, wonderful feeling.

    I've become so fascinated by your articles on 'fractals', @Ali Anani the more I want to read about them. Your comment "Fractals are repeating patterns; yet the more we zoom in them, the more we get attracted to their beauty" is succinct and a perfect description of an imperfect scenario. P.S. Also enjoyed the Slideshare on 'Fractal Thoughts on Management'.

    #45 The butterfly of words is an amazing domain @Tausif Mundrawala. Changing words or their sequence might send us in different paths. I shall consider first showing this by example and then shall look seriously into your suggestion. Fractals are discoveries and I am glad you got interested

    I only had slightest idea about fractals but thanks to you, Ali for imparting knowledge on this subject. I would like to cite the example of reading. The more we read to more we become wise. Sometimes we encounter same words but their meanings differ according to the circumstances. The more we read the more knowledge we gain then comes a time where books and newspapers chase us. You need to create a group my friend in order to assimilate all intellectuals hungry for more insightful material.

    @CityVP Manjit, Profound statment, you are a careful thinker. "The power of the present moment is massively underrated. Ultimately, time is only an illusion (particles of light already knows everything), but somehow everything rather than nothing is possible if we start to understand the secrets of a personal time management. Time stands still and then we will come back to fractal. Fractals are forever." - from "You Are a Social Leader? The Butterfly Effect", LI long-form post

    #40 Milos is aware of the folly of humankind. Those that pursue folly in religion want us to remain the past, those who pursue folly in science want us to be their future - but to be present and fully here that is the gift we are given and in that gift we can learn the lessons of history and also find that future in our present moment - the one we are guardians of. As Milos has underscored, the gifts we find within us - which is all the latent potential and blessings that we have barely touched, expressed and more importantly can mindfully weave, into patterns that flow with renaissance, a beauty within that shapes and contributes quality of life.
