Triads - beBee


~ 100 buzzes
@Ali Anani invites us: "Who will make a triad with me so that our ideas in their different states would produce more and be self-propagating?"

"There is science and art behind the number three. Threes appear in art and photography (the rule of thirds), in nature (Fibonacci’s sequence), in math (triangles), and in religion (the Holy Trinity). In design, the rule of three applies to the number of colors in a room and the number of different fabrics used. There is nothing sturdier than a three-legged stool, and the third time’s a charm." Shelley Forrester

Please share your triad.

    #53 Dear Sara, music is one element of the beautiful, it does not cost us anything to find that beauty other than the cost of attention and if our attention happens to be gratitude, then that is what we experience.

    #52 "...serving is the DNA of leadership...", in these few words @CityVP Manjit, you have captured the essence of leadership, something that is still being described and defined in volumes of writings. If we can make this wise choice, we then can have the experience you had; realizing that our roles are not measured through a lesser than and greater than comparison but rather through measuring the the factor of enabling; a learning, an opportunity, an experience. Thank you for your link. I would like to say that your post breathes new life into the overused (and often misused) word "authentic". I also appreciate how you describe thankfulness or gratitude as an alternative to escaping reality. After having the joy of seeing and hearing the video of Montego Bay that you share, I'm wondering if one of the reasons music is so powerful is that music is not so much an escape from reality but a means through which we can experience gratitude. I would like to express my gratitude to you Manjit for our engagement, thank you.

    #50 Dear Sara, yes I have read this after the event has been completed. The success of the last weeks and the effort associated with it was a servant role. As we encouraged our students to attend and my goal was to make them feel proud of such an event, the role I chose as organizer was in the background - standing outside the event hall, to ensure speakers were not disturbed, recognizing that sometimes this lesser role is the greatest role we could have chosen, and it was. This is what Montego Bay, my post at LinkedIn is about https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/montego-bay-cityvp-manjit?articleId=6191220543887273984#comments-6191220543887273984&trk=prof-post - that conflict between sacrifice and serving, that dissipates when one recognizes serving is the DNA of leadership - as a wisdom within us which we can choose.

    Finally, I have reached this destination and got to read this wonderful buzz and more importantly I am able to pay my full attention to it, an attention that it deserves. Tomorrow at my public speaking club I am leading with the theme "Word Power". Earlier today I began compiling a hidden page for club members that fleshes out the role of the Grammarian, the intent being to enrich the meaning of that role, rather than the very basic way it has to date been delivered.


    This grammar page is at the beginning line of the continuum of communication and on the other end of this continuum is "Compounding Communication". What brings this continuum in flow is the force of nature, rather than the condition of the unnatural which is when we turn this continuum into a machine and our communication is either mechanical or vapor.

    Communication is a distillation towards essence and the metaphor of atoms and molecules brings me to the nature of things - and words are things that we apply meaning to. When our communication is unclear the way those atoms and molecules vibrate either lose their meaning (a gas state) or they get too hard (the solid state). The way I interpret the continuum is that which is between gas and solid - a flow. This is what we do to words and synonyms.

    Now add to that the complexity when we look at words and synonyms as a power of three. The combinations that are then produced are an extension or compression of the original essence. These combinations that maintain their flow are more valuable to us then those that lose their meaning or become rigid and inflexible. With the right combinations we become poetic.

    #46 There is some notion @Donna-Luisa Eversley, that it starts before then. Your mom had every egg she would ever produce when she was born, according to Mark Wolynn. Whatever she went through in utero (think stress/trauma), the egg went through and was biochemically effected at the gene expression level. The mom grew up and had her own experiences, and then the egg that you became started to grow, and whatever mom experienced directly she passed to your biochemistry as it was forming. For example, women from 9/11 in Rachel Yehuda's study that were pregnant and had PTSD, gave birth to infants with the identical biochemistry markers of PTSD.

    What you say about a human smell, and the voice timbre and so is so true. It wasn't my experience, nor that of many, some worse than mine, so development gets hijacked. Development that includes emotional presence and ability to communicate down the road. There is also the flip side of that in those with highly attuned emotional radar (self acclaimed empaths) that are so only because they needed that ability to survive, and are stuck in that mode. Withdrawn or highly sensitive, neither system returns to the state of safety. The project those states of being into relationships twenty years down the road.

    29/09/2016 #46 Donna-Luisa Eversley
    The cognitive development of people starts from our beginning, rather than outside the womb, hence the ability to sense the need to stay close to another human who smells like mom...As we grow older this intuitive process is honed and helps with our confidence, which is our internal response to knowledge... I'm not sure I'm on the right path @Sara Jacobovici, haha, you have somehow managed to get me swimming in the deep.. .very very stimulating!

    I'm sharing all of this to say, as one branches out, that innate sense of establishing contact can take any form, and the environment can be the same but affect everyone differently. Thus the way they choose to 'speak' will be within their talent parameters as determined by what is absorbed through developmentl conditioning....

    @Sara Jacobovici, continuing my second son did not speak until he was eighteen months and we were worried. When he started it was in sentences... 😊 I was quite busy and spoke to him less but spent more time with him. He was a strange child, a bit quiet but thoughtful in his expressions. He was able to communicate through some strong facial expressions. It worked.
    My daughter the baby of the bunch was a real trooper...she had the least time with me because of work, and is the most spoilt and coodled. She started speaking at 2 years and was what seemed to me at the time as normal. She loved coloring and writing in squiggles. Her brothers would know what she wanted and they spoke for her mostly... There was an eight year difference..

    #41 Yes @Sara Jacobovici , as I reflect I recall the different ways each of my three children responded to the art of speech, and the activities I was engrossed in while they were housed within me 😉..My eldest started to speak at Nine months. I loved listening to music and sang all the time. I read a lot in those days also .We were driving and Phil Collins - groovy kind of love - was playing and he actually sang two lines of the chorus. I was shocked, this baby was learning to walk too early and now sing..crazy...I would sing it to him, and when it came on the radio he was able to identify and communicate in like manner...

    #40 No apologies necessary @Donna-Luisa Eversley. You're right on! It starts with our development in the womb. There is communication on a cellular level and, yes, our innate system of communication is on from the beginning. In this way we may think for the developmental stages of communication as "in-born", experience and meaning (another triad?). The other forms seem to "branch" out from there. What do you think?
    Donna-Luisa Eversley
    29/09/2016 #40 Donna-Luisa Eversley
    @Sara Jacobovici as I read this post my thoughts strayed to a young child growing up and how he/she learns to make decisions and process actions. Are we hardwired with an innate ability which we tap into with each move we make? In the womb a baby knows the surroundings yet somehow adapts to the new world, steadily. Understanding communication and the talent imposed by simply being alive is one a baby, I think shows great awareness of without being taught on how to adapt on the outside....
    My apologies if I stray but I enjoyed the stimulation of this discussion.

You are right when you write about community and after the "new" wears out, the "old" familiar returns. "We humans are like that." But, at the same time, what we're doing individually and collectively here on beBee is we're adapting and making choices. Because, "we humans are like that," too.

I had a publisher who was stealing my royalties. That's something else altogether. She lost about seven writers and two staff in her first 13 months of operation. That's it. No more advice please.

    I have my book in the New Westminster Public Library and the main branch of the Vancouver Public Library. For that, I receive a little over 80 bucks a year from Canada Council for the Arts. Yes, publishers get grants, and it helps them to operate. I placed those two copies myself. I'm a Canadian author who at the time had a platform. I was published by a start-up publishing house. As far as lightening striking, I'm not holding my breath. That is a sardonic take on the current publishing business, self-publishing in particular. It is not just my experience it is other writers and the stories the heartbreak stories that I hear from them. I'm not on a quest if I ever was.

    #120 Well, Jesse, then I misunderstood you prior remark(s). Clear you been down the path already. Including a tryst with Canada Council subsidized publishing, which during my 15 years in Canada never once ended up in anyone making money on the publishing of a book, except for the publisher who collected the revenue subsidy from Canada Council and the gross profit from library sales. The reason was pretty clear. Unless a publisher puts skin in the game with an advance to the author, or has to go out ahead for editing and publishing costs, the author can be guaranteed exactly Zero marketing and promotion of his or her book. I now understand why you've walked out onto the golf course holding an umbrella, and are waiting for lightning to strike. Or as a chubby friend of mine in a similar location once said, waiting for "lightening" to strike. Best wishes and luck for finding what you're looking for. And cheers!

    I can proof myself with Grammarly. Changing the font also helps to catch typos. My father uses Lulu. I've used Amazon, including Create Space as well as Smashwords. The publisher I used I didn't pay her. She was not representing herself as a vanity publisher. SubTerrain Magazine is published by Anvil Press a legitimate middle-level lower mainland publisher. Their bottom line is supported by grant money from the Canada Council for the Arts, like a lot of Lower Mainland presses.
    To be honest -- I don't perceive that there is any economic sense in self-publishing when you pay for either a proof-reader or editor. It is highly unlikely that I will ever break even. I'm not too concerned about it, though. There are easier dollars than trying to make money off a book that is going up against hundreds of thousands of other titles.

    #103 Okay, so as a former print magazine editor, I know a bit more than I admit to about print publishing... although perhaps not as much as you, who has been through the proverbial mill on this. But, a couple of observations: 1) a proof reader is not the same as a copy editor. If your book script is full of typos then you need a proof reader -- not as hard to come by as a good copy editor. 2) @Jeffrey Strickland touted me on to Lulu, which prints and binds using digital techniques in small run quantities at reasonable prices. You can set your own retail price and keep the gross profit, after deduction of the print run cost. 3) It never makes economic sense to pay someone else (a vanity publisher) to publish a book. Much more cost-effective to self-publish and pay for printing and binding services. 4) I personally would then market by using social media for printing reviews and testimonials from people active on the various platforms. And I would springboard from there to seek attention in the mainstream press -- not easy, but possible with persistence, and if your work is truly good.

    I am not sure this is an appropriate discussion for Kevin's thread, but it might be of interest not only to you and me, but to other authors as well. I suggest moving it to the beBee Hive "Writers & Publishers". Cheers!

    In the middle of the presentation the word "retired" was mentioned and I too agree that our societal attitude to retirement is a mindset that sits in the parts rather than where the whole can be more than the sum of the parts. Retirement is a utopian word that signifies personal freedom but it in its actuality it has become a dystopian word that is not the utopian world of the beehive but the dystopian view of putting cows out to pasture (as an idiom http://idioms.thefreedictionary.com/put+out+to+pasture ) The utopian view of the beehive is no different compared to the dystopian reality of the drone - retirement and drones how much their extinguished reality compares - but in the 21st Century if we are involved in knowledge work and not the industrial slavery as cogs in the wheel, then such a retirement is a loss that can still be counted in parts and not a win-win that can be counted as the whole.

    #33 Thank you for the most positive feedback and continued thought. Very true, @Sara Jacobovici - only humans ask "Why?". I would add one more thought to ponder..in the Western world of affluence, Frankl says: "as the struggle for survival has subsided (for food, shelter and safety) , the question becomes: survival for what? Ever more people today have the means to live, but no meaning to live for."

    #32 Beautifully written and a great contribution to the discussion @Irene Hackett. You write, "No other animal has ever cared whether or not there is a meaning to life." Agreed. Everything we do serves a purpose and the root of that purpose is survival. All animals can respond to the questions:
    What (identifying/recognizing) – was that sound?
    Where (direction/location) – do I go for shelter?
    When (time) – I have to go find a mate.
    Who (other) – do I choose to fight?
    Which (selection) – is my pack?
    How (action) – will my cub get food?
    Only humans ask Why - was I born, am I here, did this happen to me, do I feel this way, are there stars in the sky?

    Our search for meaning is part of our survival.

    @Sara Jacobovici - thank you for this important contribution in sharing Frankl's important concept of the 'noetic core'. I like the parallel thought of 'the triad' and balance. It is spurring thought energy! I really appreciate Frankl's book - 'The Unheard Cry for Meaning.' In it, he exposes - and I pull this from the back flap: "the absence of the human dimension in psychotherapy" where he talks about the "mass neurotic triad, comprising depression, aggression and addiction" and says: "rather than exhibiting mental illness, someone worrying about meaning of life is proving his humanness. One need not be a neurotic to be concerned with the quest for a meaning to life, but one does need to be a truly human being. The search for meaning is a distinctive characteristic of being human. No other animal has ever cared whether or not there is a meaning to life." I am happy you are spreading the hope found in Frankl's work. Be blessed!

The other presents his side and the leader says, "You are right." At which point the leader's assistant turns to him and says, "You said to each that he is right. They can't both be right". And the leader responds, "You, too, are right." Well Gerald, all I can say is, you are right! You have given me a great insight into the paradox of balance. Thank you.

    @Sara Jacobovici threes are very "high energy constructs" because of their inherent instability and lack of balance...they are therefore very powerful, dynamic conditions/configurations (found in an almost infinite variety of phenomena in the universe). Their power comes from their precarious, and omnipresent "danger" of the tremendous energy release when their transient (appearance of) balance is lost, i.e., the attention capturing excitement in syncopated triads in music, the fragility of our very existence--dependent upon very narrow parameters of water, sunlight, and composition of plant contains soil...the unrelenting tension of a "love triangle" ( a fail safe topic for fiction) --in books, visual and musical art, and film; in my humble opinion. #26

    "Challenging the meaning of life is the truest expression of the state of being human." - Viktor Frankl I agree with Frankl's view in that our attitudes about our experiences ignite our creative expression...It is very often that one does not truly begin to live until they have been challenged by great pain or life threatening illness...I had an interesting experience the other day while in session with a client....She is an energetic channel as well and gave me a most extraordinary gift...While I was working on her I was struggling with an issue of feeling completely depleted of my energy when my client expressed to me that she noticed a woman with long black hair approach me from behind..."She's helping you with something," she said..."She's worried about you and giving you energy....She says she's your mother." OK...I'm a channel and I get this...but I'm still creeped out! She begins to describe her to me...very accurately...My mother was very ill in her life and this was a constant source of heartache for me..."She's telling you to stop grieving now...She's happy and she's free." I am crying now...I can not even speak..."She says her body was ill, but she, (her spirit) is well...her illness served a purpose...it is why you do what you do...She says she loves you." I can barely breathe now, but somehow I am still a bit skeptical...Suddenly my client bursts out laughing...Ok...she's dancing now and singing that song from The Sound of Music...so long, fair well, auf wiedersehen goodnight!! OMG...That was her favorite musical! My heart jumped out of my chest...Hi Mom!!!! Thank you @Sara Jacobovici...for igniting a spark in my memory;-)

    #15 Dear Mohammed, the reason we have triads in communications is to simplify what would otherwise be highly complex ideas. The power of three is a fantastic means of communication because we can understand things in three's and we tend not to remember more than an average of 7 bits of information.

    Once we learn to wrap metaphor around the power of three we can develop our storytelling abilities. This is where the world of science needs to communicate around the framework of what is powerful about human narrative. Otherwise science speaks in its own language and then complains that religion has captured the imagination of the world. At that point I simply shrug my shoulders and move on with life because science is an important form of understanding - whether that be the physical, the Earth or life.

    Ultimately the triad also contributes to meaning making and as intelligent beings we are good at pattern recognition. If the power of three helps with that, then it is a way of opening our own mind to understanding - because we cannot know it all.

    The universe,people and organisations,all posses triads .The sun ,the moon and the stars are the universe triad.Creativity,innovation and analytics are the engine of value creation for any organisation which should be kept in balance to achieve commercial success,is also another triad.The triad of the "habit" according to Dr.Stephen Covey are Knowledge ,skill and attitude,in other words; What to do ,how to do and why to do.There's also a triad for winners;gold ,silver and bronze medals.Insuring a healthy level of personal balance of these triads will help people become more effective .Your sharpened inquisitiveness @ Sara Jacobovici breaks the traditional patterns of our brains in their search for meaning.We may have limitless triads that needs to be uncovered!

    This Buzz by @Henri Galvao brought to mind that there is a triadic relationship among the artist, his or her creation and the viewer or listener of that creation. What is interesting about this triad is that the artwork spans the time between the process of the artist bringing the product into being, the person viewing or listening to the product of that process which then in turn becomes part of the process of the individual experiencing that product. In a way then, the boundaries of the triad are quite expansive.

    A very interesting post @Anees Zaidi. I can understand the triad between you, your spouse and beBee. My family has similar issues. The wonderful thing about a triangle is that it is equal on all sides, creating a balance. You must find your balance Anees just as all of us need to. The other triad: Work, life, self. Finding an equilibrium that provides for each part of who we are. It is a pursuit that I am on myself, I think all humans seek a balanced triad. An interesting triangle: When designing a kitchen in a home a designer will create a triangle: stove, refrigerator, sink. It has been shown that this triangle creates an efficiency of movement by eliminating unnecessary steps. To create an efficient triad in our lives, we need to eliminate those unnecessary steps we take in our hurry to find the perfect triad. By slowing down and working with the design we live life efficiently, enjoyably, with less stress and fewer steps. We need to recognize the triads that exist in our life; We have the uphill battles where we fight for our place in the world, the the fast paced downhill descents where we feel as though we could lose control, before we finally reach the base of our triad where all things are in equilibrium. It's about recognizing on what side of the triad we are on and adjust our thoughts and actions accordingly.

    #26 @Deb Lange you have a mind blowing perspective on triads that take me to a short string of comments with @Ali Anani today on his buzz 'Going against Nature. Ali Anani commented "I envy myself for having a brother like you". I replied to him "How philosophically 'YOU' came out standing away from your 'SELF'. A dyadic relationship made up of a single entity. Now I see him standing in your Position 3 in a Triadic relationship. 'HE' standing away from the shoes of his 'SELF' looking at his 'self's brother' with an envious eye. An envious look that 'SELF' can't see from his shoes. Deb your contribution is amazing.

    I am thinking of the power of a triad of people, when 2 people talk backwards and forwards and 1 witnesses . - how powerful to feed back to the other 2 what they have witnessed. And then I think of a skill I learnt and share with others that is very powerful to form heartfelt, meaningful relationships. The skill is called "multiple perceptual
    Positions" position 1 is when I am standing in
    My shoes and seeing the world from
    My perspective. If I only have that perspective I will end up in conflict and not have empathy with others. So I need
    Position 2 - this is when I step into the shoes of others and see the world as if I was looking through their eyes. This enables me to have empathy with others.
    And if I want to truly learn new ideas a 3 rd perspective gives me added insights.
    Position 3 / I look back at myself and the person I am with as if I am
    A fly on the wall, or a an anthropologist from Venus, looking back, witnessing and seeing what I can not see from
    My shoes or another persons shoes. Having a triad perspective is very powerful for gaining wisdom. This is my contribution to triads. Thanks for creating @Sara Jacobovici

    01/08/2016 #46 Praveen Raj Gullepalli
    That doesn't take away from the fact that even a hexagon is a tessellation - a multiplication of a triangle (6 in all)! The mystery of the shape thus endures. I guess sometimes, the journey or the discovery of the replication of the meme or in this case, the triad theme, is itself a way of looking at the world differently. The order in the chaos, the method in the madness, often slips our attention!

    #40 #44 Dears @Gerald Hecht and @Praveen Raj Gullepalli- I am looking now on hexagonal ice crystals and how they convert to triagonals. Amazingly, both shapes merge together to give void-free shapes and spectacular ones too. The explanation of why hexagons turn to trigonal has only been recently verified. There are many irregularities in the info as well. So many ideas are emerging and the pursuit seems to be a long one.

    #38 Glad you mentioned the Mandaladear @Gerald Hecht. Having been (and still ) a good student Wikipedia defines it as follows:A mandala (Sanskrit: मण्डल, lit, circle) is a spiritual and ritual symbol in Indian religions, representing the universe. In common use, "mandala" has become a generic term for any diagram, chart or geometric pattern that represents the cosmos metaphysically or symbolically; a microcosm of the universe.

    #7 @CityVP Manjit I was just connecting this comment with a comment (sadly, U indexed) from a previous post on triads@Ali Anani' s thinking about how the universe seems to be inherently best understood by us (for now) by mathematical principles...and why some numbers are more powerful than others, and alchemy ;-)...it occurred to be that in a triangle there are always two sides that (given the presence of gravity) WILL FALL DOWN (guaranteed), if the base, (relative to them) is removed...rotating it, can turn a given side into the base, it then, is not "off the hook"...it may seem that it should be "relieved" (no longer dependent on a base to remain standing [leaning]...) but it now has greater "responsibility", both for the entire triangle, and preventing itself from being crushed by the other two sides, should they collapse; all three sides always have a "concern" that is both "personal" (selfish) and, simultaneously, "collective" (empathic)...if that doesn't "energize" a system, I don't know what would, lol (gerry's book of preschool metaphysics)

    What a great and insightful comment @Anees Zaidi! Of course, the Third eye, the internal one, which enables us to "see" beyond what is in the range of the two external ones. Our other sense organs, ears nose, mouth, skin, have openings which allow movement between our external and internal environments. It's interesting that as the eye does not have a similar opening we "envision" a third eye placed internally to allow this process to take place. You have my mind buzzing Anees, thank you for your contribution.
