    Time, time. There is no time. There is no time, for this rhyme.

    Great post, Sara. As I age, I find myself contemplating the fleeting nature of time much more than in my youth. Quite possibly it could be because at 49, I am relatively certain that I have more life in the rear view mirror than in the windshield, and because it takes me longer to do EVERYTHING than it did 25 years ago. Or perhaps it's that, thanks to the internet, I finally appreciate how little I know of worldly issues and events and contraptions, and now find all of it so interesting. I am constantly distracted with new pursuits.

    I recall a conversation with my grandfather during late August when I was 13 years old, and I was waxing melancholy over how quickly summer had passed. I believe that he was in his late 50's at the time, and his response was simply "Wait 'til you are my age."

    36 years later, I finally understand what he meant.

    #33 Well Deb as a Shaman I do teach these things and I do it for free.

    And your judgement of me in your comment.....

    And it is disrespectful to dismiss someone who has dedicated their life to making sure what they say is accurate and it is slanderous to call what I said in my comment a perspective that could be damaging to my brand as a Shaman who teaches these things for free because I do possess that understanding and I work to make sure what I say is accurate and factual or I state otherwise.

    #32 Well, Max, on occasion you have a tendency to take on a tone of lecturing. And this style makes it hard to respond.

    We are all adding to discussions of our own free will and we should each do so without expectations of any specific response. A person might do a quick reply because of family obligations, for example, or simply be in a happy mood and not want to take apart the entire history of science - at that particular moment in time :)

    I firmly believe that using a word like ignoring is a judgment that diverges from the attempt to keep this a community free of bullying - as you so often advocate for. Your addition to the conversation was respectfully acknowledged. Your follow-ups feel accusatory based on some other situation and that is the opposite of dwelling in the right now.

    I believe we've established that there is room for everything on beBee and that we are all free to scroll on past things that don't resonate with us, at any point in time, as long as we are respectful.

    Thank you @Cristina 🐝 López Hara for your share. I offer an invitation to contribute in Spanish:
    Tengo una colmena llamada, “What words mean to me”.

    Cada Miércoles, publicaré la/s palabra/s de la semana. Será hecho a partir de todos los mensajes privados que reciba antes de cada Lunes. Esta invitación la compartiremos fuera de beBee en tantos idiomas como sea posible, así que la/s palabra/s, serán publicadas en el idioma de origen. Os pediría que todos nosotros usemos el mismo formato de dos partes: la primera parte la palabra, y la segunda parte lo que la palabra significa para mí.

    For example, I will start us off with the word, affinity.
    La primera parte la palabra: Affinity is defined as:
    1. A spontaneous or natural liking or sympathy for someone or something.
    2. A similarity of characteristics suggesting a relationship, especially a resemblance in structure between animals, plants, or languages.
    3. The degree to which a substance tends to combine with another.
    Que la palabra significa para mí. What this word means to me.
    As an active member of beBee, the word affinity has been introduced into my life as I had never had the opportunity to use it before. Now I feel like I experience affinity, I am connecting spontaneously with a number of people and their ideas. I feel that I am relating in a meaningful way with others. And increasingly more now, I have been combining my writing and sharing with learning and meeting.
    Quiero pediros e invitaros a enviarme una palabra que tenga un significado especial para tí.

    #24 Your comments are enriching @Deb 🐝 Helfrich. Your words and ideas flow from beginning to end. I will use your concluding statement as a possible springboard. You write: "Even when what we know seems perfectly aligned with reality "out there", it is folly to become too attached to what we know in this particular moment." It makes me think that the folly is in attaching to an illusion that we then carry over, "holding on" to something that we believe to be right and then preventing ourselves from continuing to see what's out there. This is where I would use the idea of being "in the moment"; be aware of what is happening, how it makes you feel, understand that it is part of a whole, and in this way move on.

    Time is a fable and human construct of the imagination to make sense of why it gets light and dark and why the weather changes and why we change. It doesn't actually exist.

    This is part of the unlearning that has to be done in order to live now and achieve higher levels of understanding and conscious level awareness.

    When you step outside 3d to 4d it's infinite space. Time only exists in our minds because we all agree to live the lie of time. In 4d space everything that has ever happened and will ever happen in infinite realities exists simultaneously. Just a fact of existence. Not a popular one because it destroys all the science that is based on the lie of time.

    All language is metaphorical and we all tie different metaphors to different words based on experience.

    As a Shaman it;s my job to understand these things and I put a lot of work into it over my life studying both physics and everything else.

    As a conduit for wisdom straight from source, god, the universal consciousness or whatever helps you sleep you netter I can assure this is fact and not opinion.

    I have spent years making sure I can trust that as well.

    The "shift" we are going through on our world is about ripping back the veil and learning what the real truth is.

    You can find a lot of reading material that supports every word of this comment.

    #21 #22 Fantastically composed thesis, @Sara Jacobovici. It is an interesting conundrum as we do understand at some level that our objective reality is filtered through a very subjective lens; but we often behave in very rigid ways demanding that others acknowledge our perceptions as 'fact'

    The Black Swan metaphor is brilliant at coalescing this point, as it only ever takes one outlier occurrence. And we rely too heavily on the small timeframes of our human lives, along with our confirmation bias.

    Most people would guarantee that I will see the sun rise in the East tomorrow. But those folks don't live in Seattle. I first moved here in December one year. I would have sworn that one could not see Mount Rainer from the city. For almost 60 days I knew this to be a fact. And then one day, the clouds cleared and I was astounded.

    To be fully alive, we have to stay cognizant of that awareness that our bodies come equipped with only a limited set of perceptual apparati (What a perfect illustration! If I want to create a cool plural of apparatus - I can do so, strict grammatical rules aside, as long as the context of meaning is accurate)

    Even when what we know seems perfectly aligned with reality "out there", it is folly to become too attached to what we know in this particular moment.

    #11 Part Two: When an individual is urged to “use their common sense” there is an assumption that the meaning of the action or even judgment of the person doing the urging is understood by the individual being urged and is in sync with their own drive to survive. Immanuel Kant, in his Critique of Judgment (1987), states: "[W]e must [here] take sensus communis to mean the idea of a sense shared [by all of us], i.e., a power to judge that in reflecting takes account (a priori), in our thought, of everyone else's way of presenting [something], in order as it were to compare our own judgment with human reason in general... Now we do this as follows: we compare our judgment not so much with the actual as rather with the merely possible judgments of others, and [thus] put ourselves in the position of everyone else..." So…what I am trying to say again is, you’re right @Deb 🐝 Helfrich; my sense of time is not your sense of time, but together we share a common sense. Metaphors are the language we use to communicate with each other and share what our individual sense “feels” like.
    Sara Jacobovici
    09/02/2017 #21 Sara Jacobovici
    #11 Part One: You are right on @Deb 🐝 Helfrich. Our perceptions are based on the sensory input we process and experience. The objective laws of nature were developed by people who observed and perceived nature differently from their predecessors. Human beings are referred to as “sentient”. Sentient is defined as “having sensation or feeling”. As sentient beings, in order for us to feel, perceive and experience, we are dependent on our senses. From individual perceptions we then expand to communal or common perceptions. My red is not your red but we need to have to have a common enough representation for us, as individuals, to survive in the community. In his book The Psychology of Consciousness, Robert Ornstein (1972) states: "Ordinary consciousness is each individual’s own private construction. This insight has been more elegantly expressed by philosophers and poets. Alfred North Whitehead said: Nature gets credit which in truth should be reserved for ourselves, the rose for its scent, the nightingale for his song, and the sun for its radiance. The poets are entirely mistaken. They should address their lyrics to themselves and should turn them into odes of self-congratulations on the excellence of the human mind. Nature is a dull affair, soundless, scentless, colorless, merely the hurrying of material, endlessly, meaninglessly." So...not only do we each have our individual scent of the rose, but our own red. In other words, both the subjective and the objective are subjectively perceived.

    Right now there is a small group of affiliates who are outproducing an ENTIRE company because they are focused on a very specific set of actions.

    Daily action which are producing unbelievable results.

    In fact, 100% of the participants in this group are winning. They are making sales. They are recruiting people into their organizations. They are making a significant impact in the lives of those around them.

    And they’re making it look easy.

    #3 Thanks for tagging me @CityVP 🐝 Manjit. I would have missed it as the feed is supersonic these days and anything posted in the Western Hemisphere is likely to get overlooked unless it is shared during my day. Always fascinated by the minds of artists. But for me, an artist can be technically brilliant, but just like singers, if they don't have soul, their voice/canvas will be will not be engaging. Looking through Mr. Poulin's artwork, I am taken in by the warmth. Absolutely delightful. The book sounds interesting indeed. I spent my early years reading books that provoked thought, upset, and disrupted. These days I prefer books that take me on a journey, like being a passenger in Disney's Small World. So no offence dear Bernard Poulin, I am however tempted by your Colored Pencil Techniques series!

    I was drawn in by the metacogntive attraction of the title of this buzz and then the graphic. Once I got reading, I noticed the word "nude" and I checked back a little for a moment thinking, I hope this is not bait and switch.

    No worries, this was a delight to read from top to bottom. While this buzz is about the authors book, the attraction for me here is the worldview of an artist. There is a chasm between the "studio world" and the "other world's".

    When it comes to "encouragement", I will draw a quick distinction in my own mind between the artist and the anarchist. The artist absolutely consumes and eats the object of their art - they pull from the very fabric of life, and so the artist takes in a lot to emit a little art. We only see the end product and not what went into the end product that is art.

    The anarchist is different, she or he does not want rules to be imposed on them and does not want to be told what to do, which for me is interesting in that there is a relationship that exists between the anarchist and art - one is about creating rules, which kind of paradoxical considering anarchists don't believe in rules - and so it seems that there is a split in the world of anarchists - but the link back to art is the paradoxical.

    So now I observe this buzz, just like a painting - a metacognition of Bernard Poulin. This observation is not for me one between the studio and the other worlds, it is the observation of many worlds I observe. I more am more than delighted to welcome Bernard to beBee, as I am delighted @Dean Owen lead me to Lyon Brave, likewise I welcome hearing Dean's observations regarding Bernard's buzz.

    I'm with Deb, intriguing Bernard. I'm an observer (and I do stare, but try not to get caught). I like to go to a local park and just observe people, try to decipher their expressions and overheard conversations. Ever notice how you can tell which ones are actually thinking, contemplating and those that just seem to walk through the world oblivious of all that is going on around them?
    In actuality I'm told I think too much...which never made sense to me.

    There is a subtle piece of 'misinformation' itself in this piece, and that is that ALL reporting is subject to bias, and the propaganda of the political context-beyond reporting basic physical events such as tidal waves and earthquakes e.t.c all of our reported social and political 'news' is depicted by specific power groups, if you think about this for 5 seconds it will be clear.

    #14 In fact, lines and circles are two dimensions. If you add a third dimension to a circle, it becomes a globe. Definetly, we learn in "globe" mode, as we get information from all possible directions. When attending a training, you get not only what is taught, as well the lecturer attitude, the atmosphere, the others' attitude, comments, our own previous knowledge.

    Hmm. I might be somewhere in the middle. A little of both, maybe? I definitely like things to be as uncomplicated as possible and people who natter on endlessly without making a concise point get on my nerves. My spacial perception is terrible and too many details and steps confuse me. Having said that, I can be very resourceful, a great problem solver, independent thinker and very entrepreneurial. What's your opinion, @Graham🐝 Edwards? I think Graham learns in circles.

    30/11/2016 #14 Deb 🐝 Helfrich
    #13 Interesting that you brought up maps, @Susan Rooks, as I used the words globe and continent-shaped. I think circular learning is more about learning things spatially, in relationship, via representation. And linear directions are certainly part of the ease of recalling some of the most ridiculous things.

    I have always had a great sense of direction, probably good since I traveled so much as a consultant, but I shun maps and the existence of GPS is outside my world right now. Even something like getting in an elevator and knowing which way to turn when I got to my floor. It floored me when colleagues would have to walk out and look in order to know which way to go.

    I think I learn in 3-D. Back to spatial learning. I also love to pace while talking.

    Finally, the newish work on embodied cognition is very self-evident to me, I think precisely because I don't learn in a straight line.

    Well, @Elizabeth Bailey, you've given us quite a question! Thank you!

    I am pretty sure I think in circles; until the last few years no one would have ever called me organized. Straight lines were not for me! And although yes, I'm more organized . . . I am sure others might walk into my small place and wince. The one time straight line thinking works for me is with maps, especially trying to get to a place I've never been before. I don't much like getting anywhere late, so I like to go simply from here to there with a minimum of fuss.

    Otherwise, I'm fine with being spontaneous and wandering around -- in my thinking and in my doing.

    @Elizabeth Bailey...I learn in circles, and growing up it was hard as my teachers tried to get me on the straight line. I'm also a picture learner and images are easier than words. I can do the lines and words now, but it took me a long time to accept my differences were great and did not make me less of a person.
    Thanks for this.

    Interesting @Elizabeth Bailey. I think I'm a mix of both. I'm scattered at times, spontaneous and I can usually learn from fragments of my past if it's something that just makes sense. On the other hand, I need facts, I'm a hands on learner first and foremost. However, there are certain things that I need step by step instruction. I guess it just depends on the circumstance I'm facing.

    Spiral learning is the one for me, combining both straight lines and circles, in a harmonious, more or less intuitive manner. Thank you for sharing!

    Very circular learner right here, @Elizabeth Bailey. Although I represent it a bit more like what I know right now is the 'globe', if I sit in a class, I wait to hear the entire lecture, get the entire scope of the new information, and then I integrate the whole of the new info into my world. I simply do not understand asking questions during the process.

    Once something is integrated, I have a map to retrieve it. Maybe it could be said I learn in continent shaped chunks, rather than train tracks. I do very much agree with your statement "they seem to be able to remember all these odd unrelated pieces of information and when they've got enough of them just put them together with an amazing grasp of the subject"

    They may strictly speaking be unrelated bits of info, but I learn the relationships, rather than the facts, and that leads to a quicker emergence of a 'concept.'

    Thanks for such an interesting and thought-provoking post, Liz. I think the best outcome is to possess some combination of thinking in straight lines AND circles. I don't think this has to be an either/or choice, although I'm sure most people excel at one over the other. If not, then at least know what you excel at, in addition to your limitations. Then, as you suggest, seek out assistance and guidance as needed.

    Sam, I love that you wrote about this topic and gave your hive the tools to be able to do this themselves.
    This week I had the opportunity to introduce a number of people to one another using the strategy you used in the above example. Connecting professionals to one another can have mutual benefit for the two people you are connecting, and for you, the connector.
    When you can demonstrate a willingness and an openness to bring people together, you signal to others that you see the potential and opportunity in connecting others.
    To use an example from my line of work: When a job seeker turns down a job but recommends a qualified professional instead, that job seeker connects the two and if there's a match, has helped both secure their separate needs. (Even if there isn't a match, both appreciate the good will). If there is a match, the employer has found someone to fill their need and the job seeker has a job. Now both feel very positive about the connector and chances are good, they'll look for ways to help return the favor.

    One needs to be careful with the attitude expressed as you might find yourself retiring unexpectedly earlier than you thought. Fact is companies can be disrupted anytime and the company needs to be adapting and growing, even if you don't think it makes sense for you.

Even so , I went back to school and finished my degree in Consumer Science & Merchandising just five years ago. In addition to my "day job" I market and resell on my own website as well as other eCommerce platforms. Never stagnate, always learning, keep doing something new!
