- Producer04/12/2016Humans Are Constantly FractalsThe question that is keeping my mind busy these days is if humans are fractals not in their bodies only, but also in their emotions. We know that our nervous system, lungs, artilleries are all fractals. Human bodies have cellular structure. Are...
Comments04/12/2016 #7 Sara JacoboviciYou are a contortionist @Ali Anani; you are a fractally composed human being who is able to look at the fractal patterns we produce, biochemically, neuro-chemically, emotionally, and so on. At the same time you present the simplicity of the complex nature of our being: "Humans no matter where they come from have all fractal bodies and emotions and the consistency of fractals leads to fractal actions." Thank you Dr. Ali for allowing us to see the patterns emerge.04/12/2016 #6 Ali Anani#5 You bring a relevant point dear @debasish majumder. Cancerous cellular growth is due to their chaotic growth. This could be because of low-quaityy food. I know that our bodies need lots of water. We must have enough daily quantities of it; however excessive amounts of water can be harmful. Thank you for the information on water. We don't either want to drain our cells of water or wet them excessively.04/12/2016 #5 debasish majumderintriguing post indeed sir @Ali Anani! i recently came across in a publication, where it has been expressed that the volume of water in human body is sharply decreasing! the external material we intake and its chemical effect can lead to produce excess alcohol as well other toxins in our body, causing detriment to our body politic, where i guess, we are becoming a softest victims, as our food habit as well the constituents in the food has largely changed. consequently our behavioral pattern also making an unpredictable gesture too! our bile duct, responsible for HCL containment is eventually causing toxic impact too and perhaps for the modern food and lifestyle making a large impact on us, sometimes even initiating carcinogenic growth in our body. even it can tend to make us pretty weird in terms of our attributions! however, great post sir. enjoyed read. thank you very much for the share.04/12/2016 #4 Ali AnaniDear @Mohammed Sultan- like almost no two fingerprints are identical I dare say the same to fractals. No human fractals are exactly of the same structure. Just like trees no trees are identical, even though structurally they look the same. Are human fractals the new fingerprints?
For emotions are molecules with different charges. The more crowded we are with emotions, we notice the crowdedness effect observed in labs by bacterial cells. It leads eventually to self-organizing in the form of fractals. Now, which emotions are charged with, the interactions of these molecular emotions shall be. If negative emotions prevail with high intensity they shall give a structurally different fractal from that of say "balanced emotions".
I thank you for crowing my mind with your revealing comment. You, too, provoke my mind.04/12/2016 #3 Mohammed SultanDear @ Ali Anani PhD .Your posts always provoke positive fractal emotions in side us and give us the motive to respond.The provoked fractals of emotions always lead to fractal of motivations and fractals of decisions,the more focused on purpose,the less fractal emotions we will have.The sort of fractal emotions also influences the kind of decisions we take.We provoke quicker and intensive fractal emotions when we are driven by fear rather than by gain.Everybody has a lot of fractal emotions and no body has the same structure and also they vary from time for the same person.Change of the mix and intensity of fractal emotions can also lead to change in behavior or motive.The intensity of these fractals can drive some people to regress to negative emotions,and some followers to become more jealous toward the leader.Their direct their fractals and so their decisions to adopt me-too strategies because they become more jealous toward the leader .Followers who are driven by fear of losing their market share always have more fractals than the leader who has the focus and fuel to innovate or change or even retaliate.People of more emotional fractals who are driven by fear either adopt me-too strategies or resort to their status quo .04/12/2016 #1 Mohammed A. Jawad@Ali Anani Human being, by form and faculties, is best of all the Creation. Isn't that truth? Aha.. with simple truths we can beautify our lives with truthful aims and actions. Otherwise, falling into abysmal abstract theories may hinder our physical existence into inactivity, and instead of plausible pursuits we may turn our temporal lives with trivial pastimes.
Btw, your grim, pensive posts always inspire me to think the other way. :)

- 24/11/2016The day I finally got all the kids to agree to watch the kind of movie I like to watch was the day they ALL fell asleep inside the first 15 minutes. I don't blame them because the film MINDWALK directed by Bernt Amadeus Capra (Brother of Fritjof Capra) really begins after 17 minutes when the three principal characters meet for the first time. The movie stars Liv Ullman who speaks on the perspective of whole systems thinking and the resulting dialogue introduces emergence as way of seeing. Next time I watch MINDWALK - for sure I will watch it alone, but I for one, really love the depth of it even if my own kids have learned to avoid it like the plague.//// MINDWALK /// 1990 movie Mindwalk ~!~ the movie is a 1990 feature film directed by Bernt Amadeus Capra, based on his own short story, based in turn on the book The Turning Point by...

The setup of having a politician who is taken stage by stage through this journey of seeing the interconnectedness of everything, even up to the last bit where the poet challenges the physicist as to whether all this knowledge is worth as much as having love in your life. We discuss these themes daily in a multitude of ways, but most of my country is shrouded in self-interest and fear.
How do we get them to a version of Mont St-Michel with enough time to be taken on a journey to open their eyes?
I'm just a philosopher waiting to meet my politician, but none seem to come to my hermitage - hence my commenting dedication.24/11/2016 #9 Aurorasa Sima#5 Hahaha, well that´s reality tv. I mean ... life. From their point of view, it makes sense. They invite you to watch exciting movies, and they don´t expect analysis as a reaction.
I hardly know any current US movies. I watched one this year, "something-something fantastic beasts" ... by the Lady who made Harry Potter. Left me feeling disappointed.
I bet you gladly pay the high price and proudly watch your kids while they force you into the mind-numbing experience (:24/11/2016 #8 CityVP Manjit#7 Dear Sara, there is media which we can watch over a life and there is media which we consume as knowledge. This is what I would love to convey to my own kids, about this ability to sit with something, rather than move from one media experience to another. It is hard to teach that when this is something that we cultivate ourselves. In the way that you come to life and that sensibility is something we share, when you do watch this, I hope that you find it as enriching as I have, and still continue to do. Moreover Bernt directed this movie based on his brothers book, which is the share you have already seen in Fritjof Capra.24/11/2016 #5 CityVP Manjit#1 It may be just the opposite Aurorasa, they have no idea what they are paying in being bored by it because they want an escape, whereas I am watching a movie because it is involving me to think. Every weekend they invite me to watch movies that "normal" people watch and when I do sit down on the rare occasion that one of their flicks grabs my attention, then they are telling me not to talk over their movie - which means I must accept the mind-numbing part of the popular movie experience - and that for me is the real price. First they want me to share the experience with them, but when I do share the experience with them, they are telling me to shut up :-)24/11/2016 #4 CityVP Manjit#2 That is the beauty isn't it :-) That we have learned to see things in a way that is strange for others, yet if they did see what we see, the strange reality is that they would never go back to the way that used to see things. This is more than just viewing life as a stereogram http://www.hidden-3d.com/how_to_view_stereogram.php but that serves as a good example about seeing differently - when people see the hidden image in a stereogram, that is a practical way of showing someone that there is in life different ways of seeing.24/11/2016 #3 Deb Helfrich"The essence lies in the relationship (1:01) ....a series of interconnections like chords sequenced into melody.

Few things in life are same of the trees if cut the water from it will died , cut and then dry, and when it comes to mitigating differences between people we need watering these distinctions .18/11/2016 #31 Joris Plaatstaal#26 "Conformity is not learning @Joris Plaatstaal" So now I know why you are here @Ali Anani, thank you.
It proves that if one needs an answer to a question one just have to ask.
To go on-topic about trees and roots and us... Well, I am sure you know this, but nevertheless I link it.
I like this, though it can be misunderstood.18/11/2016 #27 Franci Eugenia HoffmanTrees have roots to assist them in grasping the ground and holding on to life. Humans have roots to assist them in connecting with others and holding on to life. Unfortunately, humans don't always appreciate their roots and lose touch with life and all it has to offer. Humans can benefit from learning about trees and the challenges they face. Learning to adapt to uncontrollable or controllable circumstances is a major advantage in how humans can cope with challenges.16/11/2016 #25 Joris Plaatstaal#13 @ Ali Anani. "yes, we humans have choices, but do we select carefully?" .... I think not. They majority of people I know, just go with the flow. They need to conform to the public mind. They need to be part of, some, society.... I give you that, trees just live or die. Can humans live without conformation? I doubt it, I think we need it. I think we are so desperate in need of just that, conformation. Are we willing to ignore the entity we are in order to receive conformation?
Loose yourself in order to fit in the virtual hive? To be accepted? To be what some idea wants you to be?
I entered beBee to question us and myself. Why are you and me here, in this domain? Why do we even spent time here? Is being on social media a conformation to the rest?
I need to learn. I will learn.14/11/2016 #24 Ali Anani#23 No question I am going to spend this evening pondering on this idea "Our barter system of time/intelligence for money should act like the grove of trees. Learn, stabilize and grow.......But for some reason the need for volatility is strong in the human psyche". This is sheer brilliance @Harvey Lloyd. I shall be back with more elaboration of my understanding of this great and provoking idea.14/11/2016 #23 Harvey Lloyd#20 The hurricane within the metaphor is our current political climate to humans or the opportunity for the sapling to grow is when the grove becomes damaged and the canopy opens.
Our economic system benifits from volatility, it shakes the leaves of money lose from one group and allows another to flourish. The system can be played, but to what end? Our barter system of time/intelligence for money should act like the grove of trees. Learn, stabilize and grow.......But for some reason the need for volatility is strong in the human psyche. We have to shake things up.
We call this our best system to satisfy the masses the best way possible. Trees show us a different path. But the path is not special, exciting or glorifying. Humans have to make that part work.

Comments08/11/2016 #44 Ali Anani@Sara Jacobovici has written a very practical buzz on the application of the main idea of this buzz. Her buzz "Making sense of patterns"
is an outstanding example of "balling ideas" on beBee. I repeat my comment on Sara's buzz here:
The best theory is an applied theory. Dear @Sara Jacobovici your buzz gives a comprehensive clarification of what I mean. Your extension of the emotions branching tree to teams is wonderful. That we may see beneath the surface by comparing the emotional footprints is a great idea. I am privileged to have indirectly contributed to this buzz. I shared on three hives, but also wish I could also share it on human resources hive, but I am limited to three. I suggest you also share it there.
In brief, a great and practical buzz and you provide a roadmap for managers to follow. May be you also would consider providing one example of your application of your great idea.
This buzz is the proof of inoculation of ideas to which beBee and @Javier beBee should be proud of.08/11/2016 #40 Ben Pinto#37 #34 Yes @Ali Anani and @Aurorasa Sima it is so true that even after he baby is born and for months to years after, the founders of the Zippedy Zee (as seen on Shark Tank) sleeping clothes, have proved that providing a sleeping blanket similar to one used by adults for camping but shaped like an hour glass allows the baby to sleep better due to the restriction of motions mimicking the restrictions in the womb. Thank you for making it through that sentence.08/11/2016 #39 Ali Anani#38 @Mohammed Sultan- I support and in full agreement with your market research. People shall not put their hands in their pocket to take action and buy without the proper emotions and perceptions of what they see. I find your practical experience of immense value because it reflects reality and it corrects our perceptions. Thank you for commenting with such clarity08/11/2016 #38 Mohammed SultanDear@Ali Anani PhD .What's good you will know it's good and you can't keep your eyes from,it's the same with your insightful articles.What makes your articles unique is that it's conceded with people emotions and feelings which influence people attitudes, perceptions and responses to our offerings,whether they are products ,services or even Ad contents.Customers(people) emotions and responses ,as revealed from my previous research studies and focus groups, are fractal and sometimes they were unaware of or unable to articulate.Apart from the attitudes that customers(people) can't report or reveal directly because their emotions are likely to be fractal or have more than face ;a public-face, a private-face, and also a double -talk within each face.My market research experience has also taught me that knowledge about people is not necessarily of a scientific nature,and you should be someone who is also constantly close to them in order to understand their attitudes and perceptions.08/11/2016 #37 Ali Anani#34 @Aurorasa Sima- thanks first for your kind blessings. You wrote "the pain of birth has probably already changed your brain and you´re comparing the outside world to the womb". May be this explains why every born baby cries. Life starts with comparing the inside and outside and still babes prefer the confined and dark womb to the wide and spacious world. May be babies find more space in the womb being fractal and see it as infinite!!!08/11/2016 #35 Ali Anani#28 I think this is a strong paradox embedded in your writing " Especially in our culture so fearful of emotions that we inevitably latch onto them, rather than feeling as they flow through....". @Deb Helfrich View more#28 I think this is a strong paradox embedded in your writing " Especially in our culture so fearful of emotions that we inevitably latch onto them, rather than feeling as they flow through....". @Deb Helfrich- denying emotions is one thing; that they rule our decisions is another. Denying emotions doesn't eliminate them. Close08/11/2016 #34 Aurorasa SimaGreat post and great question. "How does what we feel change our perception". And how does our past change our emotions? Let´s face it. Our perception has a hint of reality in it. The higher the EQ, the clearer you can see. But can you ever see clear, as if you were born right this minute? Even if ... the pain of birth has probably already changed your brain and you´re comparing the outside world to the womb.
Thanks for the tag, @Fatima Williams (: (: (:07/11/2016 #29 Max Carter#28 Every emotional state will effect the whole of the emotional being that one is. If one decides to perceive an emotion as negative it will be and have a negative effect on one. If one decides an emotion is postie it will be and will have a positive effect on one.
However one limits ones potential for understanding the truth of the emotion and its source when one uses such limiting perceptions. When one seeks truth in anything one does not seek good or evil one seeks what is.
Karmic law even says to accept what is not to accept what it good or what is evil, what is and work with it accordingly to emotional response that best fits ones view of life existence and most things as not everything can ever be known or understood or what would life be without some mystery to ponder endlessly.07/11/2016 #28 Deb Helfrich"Without emotion one is without identity." @Max Carter this is a lot to ponder. Especially in our culture so fearful of emotions that we inevitably latch onto them, rather than feeling as they flow through....
I also had a thought arise about how specific organs are associated with certain emotions in Chinese Medicine. Does fear alter our kidneys functioning? This again has a lot of personal meaning for me and was built on the initial fractal fragment of catching the word lungs as I scrolled down to revisit the comments section....07/11/2016 #23 Ali Anani#22 @Max Carter- you wrote with eloquent simplicity "I think it is easy to see that no matter how you wrap it up when something rings true is simply is true". This makes me wonder why scientists objected to the existence of polymers when Staudinger mentioned it first. Sometime what rings true is even refuted by eminent scientists.

Comments06/11/2016 #13 CityVP Manjit#11 There is another discipline that is akin to "school by doing" which is "action learning" - the important thing here is that doing is not a past tense, it is in the here and now, and Claire Cardwell can engage this right here or anywhere.
For sure getting to know how the Lloyds translated this to architecture is something you won't know unless we engaged in that school, but even me just discovering this as a reality has somewhat imperceptibly changed me. It is the appreciation of this awareness that matters.
Whether it is this discovery I had today about Taliesen philosophy courtesy of your buzz or visiting those who think about "action learning" http://www.wial.org/action-learning - the actual reality of this discovery is that both you and I can then operating in the school which we to belong even when it is a self-created school of our own online learning journeys.
This is why I especially really loved the affinity that I dug out of your buzz because it is kindred with how I personally want to relate to the WWW a.k.a. http://myhero.com/hero.asp?hero=T_BernersLee_MMUN_CA_07 and so I frame it as a "learning journey".06/11/2016 #9 CityVP ManjitWhat was personally relevant to me in this buzz was that I encountered the intellect of E.Fay Jones which informs my yellow hive, it contained the emergent and design aspects of architecture which informs my violet hive and it told the story of an educational institution for the Lloyd-Wright's vision of an architectural fellowship which informs my gray hive. When it comes to my own learning journey this buzz actually contained far more elements than simply directly appreciating the design thinking of the Thorncrown Chapel. Thank You for this buzz.06/11/2016 #7 CityVP ManjitDid not about Fay Jones. The one thing obituaries create is a doorway into a life, so I first accessed the NY Times page for his obit http://www.nytimes.com/2004/09/01/arts/design/fay-jones-83-architect-influenced-by-wright-dies.html?_r=0 There I also learned about http://taliesinfellows.org/i/taliesin-fellows/ so again something new for me but now I see the connection even more with Lloyd-Wright as an educator. That in itself is worth buzzing to my Gray HIve https://www.bebee.com/group/gray noting here that my hives are for my own learning journey, rather than a singular interest in the field of architecture. An obit of an accomplished person describes the key moments of a life and a person's work, .In Fay Jones it's describes a "chance encounter with Lloyd-Wright". Again another evidence point what @Sara Jacobovici and Reena Saxena on LinkedIn have been talking about regards the subject of synchronicity. I also note Olgivanna Lloyd Wright's contribution in enlightening Frank Lloyd Wright towards this vision that I learned today was Taliesian. What we attribute to greatness is a web of relationships that I am beginning more and more to recognize in my own learning journey.06/11/2016 #6 Claire CardwellIt's on my bucket list of places to go along with Falling Waters by Frank Lloyd Wright who was E Fay Jones's Mentor. I particularly love the fact about how E Fay Jones insisted that the chapel only be built with materials that could be carried by two men through the forest.

Comments30/11/2016 #46 Ali AnaniThank you @Lisa Gallagher because you highlighted a crucial point in your comment regarding assumptions and how to deal with them. I think the response of @Sara Jacobovici is quite adequate and relevant. We have that little pause to question our assumptions. As brief as this pause could be it could ventilate our minds to start afresh.30/11/2016 #45 Sara Jacobovici#44 Thank you so much @Lisa Gallagher for taking the time to read and to respond. I thank @Ali Anani for bringing your attention to this post. I have often mentioned this but it came to mind when you wrote, "I can think of many times I reacted". This reminds me of that space that Viktor Frankl wrote about: "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." For me being aware of this space decreases responding from a reactive mode, and allows us, as you say Lisa, to be "aware of the idea that we may be getting real signals that alert us".30/11/2016 #44 Lisa GallagherI think we've all made assumptions from time to time. Assumptions aren't healthy because they usually disappoint or cause unnecessary anger. I think thats something we should all keep in mind and continue to work on facts not assumptions. It's easy to assume another's intentions but to assume doesn't mean a person is correct. It's easy to assume a person is something they aren't... good, bad or otherwise. @Ali Anani asked how we alert our minds when assumptions lead us astray and that question ran through my mind as I wrote why it's bad to make assumptions. Maybe we are alerted but we don't pay attention to the signal? As I'm writing this, I can think of many times I reacted without listening to my inner voice (gut feeling, intuition) based on my assumption versus true knowledge or fact. To be aware of the idea that we may be getting real signals that alert us yet we don't tune is, makes me want to try harder to tune into a part of myself I may ignore... a part of my brain I may ignore.
WPD, are great tools to focus on, maybe that too, helps to keep us more in tune to signals our brain is sending us. Lots of food for thought here!02/11/2016 #38 Ali Anani#37 Love your mind and your thinking my dear @Fatima Williams. THis segment of your comment "How do we alert our mind to give us warning signals when our assumptions lead us astray ?

Our bodies immune system identifies a harmful pathogen before it attacks yes it does and we give warning signals from our body when this happens.
How do we alert our mind to give us warning signals when our assumptions lead us astray ? This is where our WPD factor comes into action its the hero that needs to alert us if what we are facing is indeed a villian or hero !

This assumption is the greatest enemy for the WPD factor and I Thank you and @Ali Anani for pointing out the importance of avoiding the contamination of the same by the said factors.
Day in and day out we make decisions that will change our life momentarily or forever, these decisions are based on the assumptions and the strength of the WPD factor and owes to its success or failure and will affect us and those around us simultaneously.

I have so many ideas buzzing around I feel like taking time to reflect and write. Is thus my idea immune system going into defense to stall ideas, to make them "good" before writing? Perhaps, I will just write a stream of consciousness. I used to work with some-one who was very defensive. He also had an immune system problem with his white platelets. I always imagined that there was something going on with the way he thought about the world, as of everyone was attacking him, is he had to be ready to defend, that his white blood platelets were mirroring his thinking. He used to assume he was being attacked, when in reality he was attacking himself, and so his white blood platelets were attacking his other blood platelets. Dr Bruce Lipton, has written much about the biology of our beliefs. Do our cells mirror our ways of thinking much more than we realise?02/11/2016 #28 CityVP ManjitI cannot give up sadness if what I experience is sad and I cannot give up happiness if what I experience is happiness. The autoimmune disease of society is when we are sad that people are happy, or happy that people are sad.

Just as we can become alert to our sixth sense, to our intuitive expression that emanates from emotional awareness, we may miss the space/time between those we do not see, and in seeing that connect with a wider touch of synchronicity.
It goes back to the idea of sawabona/shikoba (measures of respect) so I combine this http://www.innerself.com/content/personal/intuition-awareness/intuitive-awareness/8640-synchronicities-invisible-world-becoming-visible.html with this http://exploringyourmind.com/two-powerful-words-sawabona-shikoba/ and the triad is completed by the physicality of the invisible becoming visible.

In your work you do Sara you do see the grassroots of human existence, and I am in touch with that also in recent years, but for a large swatch of society, synchronicity flows where it is visible - in the place it gets noticed more, such as the middle class. If that is a judgement then that is a judgement but where we label someone poor because they are poor, yet we can remove that blindfold of a label and the prize is the inflow of synchronicity as the invisible is made visible.
I learn most from people who are different from me, but in this world where diversity is spoken as an expression, it is time that diversity is awoken even more as a practice.29/10/2016 #43 Deb Helfrich#3 @Chas Wyatt - thanks for opening me to noticing. I cannot believe what just occurred. A kid who I nannied while I was in college before he was in preschool, just popped up in my People You Might Know Window on the top of LI - in the very next browser tab to this article!!! I almost never get suggestions there because there is always some thing happening to my connections.
I am utterly astounded. It felt spooky. Good spooky but unfathomable.
His parents were professors at my university in Pittsburgh, PA, so I said, relatively likely he might have went there, that would be our connection - but surely almost 50k kids have attended since my time there and since it was so long ago for me, I don't have many of my college peeps in my network. I check and he is a Technical Program Manager @ Amazon in Seattle.
Universe, I adore you.29/10/2016 #42 Anonymous#41 "It is only when we tap into that "sixth sense" or look at things through our "third eye", that we can see beyond the immediate need for our physical survival." What an exciting idea! Is it then, when we see beyond our physical survival that we are possibly 'leveling up' in our experience of being? Again, an area that is vast and fertile with ideas!29/10/2016 #41 Sara Jacobovici#39 100%, @Irene Hackett, our sensory system is limited in many ways; even as sophisticated as it is. What is also interesting is that our sensory systems' ability to "record" input is based on our fundamental and primal needs of survival; interpreting our environment and everything and everyone in it. It is only when we tap into that "sixth sense" or look at things through our "third eye", that we can see beyond the immediate need for our physical survival.29/10/2016 #40 Sara Jacobovici#38 Leave it to you @CityVP Manjit to pull a phenomena from outside a physical state into the "grounded" physical experience. Your perspective is invaluable. Not but, just a however....I may be reading too much into your comment but I feel there is a judgment thread that I don't necessarily see how it fit into the space/time state of synchronization and synchronicity. I see a difference between someone who needs to work as a waiter as a stop gap and someone whose profession is a waiter. Regardless of the motive, I am very appreciative of the difference the waiter's attitude in relation to me as a customer will have on the quality of my dining experience. It is never right, under any circumstance, to lose sight of the human to human contact and objectify that person.29/10/2016 #39 Anonymous#36 "However, perception, from my perspective is first a raw innate experience stemming from our sensory and central nervous system and only becomes man made when we assign or attach meaning to the illusion." Yes, I can see the solidity of your interpretation. I find it interesting too, that our senses are limited - as in the example of optical illusions - what we see with our eyes may not be reality. Vast material here to work with. Love it!29/10/2016 #38 CityVP ManjitRight now it is the physicality side of synchronicity that I am in touch with. "When you are keeping your clocks in time, you are synchronizing". I note that when we are keeping our clocks in time we are synchronizing. The position where synchronicity becomes a high level topic rather than a grass-root reality is where we are clocking in. This is the domain of the everyday worker, the raw reality of regimented time, where physical energy might create muscle or fitness but the physicality leaves us without the energy to be in touch with our conscious being. It is the place where a student with a degree may begin their work-life, and until that student can step beyond that physicality of general labour - they endure life where time is physical energy. I rarely visit restaurants these days, but I used to with the professional classes and the appreciation for synchronicity is available to us, but then I would see the waiter, who is only a considered a waiter - but I have already seen in their eyes and subtle movements, that this is well educated young person, doing what they need to do to get by. Perhaps there is synchronicity in that contact, but the blockage in that synchronicity is that the mind of this highly educated waiter has been drawn to the tip for service rendered, rather than the human connection. That synchronicity is released from the prison of this physicality when we stop eating and start appreciating or at least reflecting for even the briefest moment, the human life that we call our "waiter".29/10/2016 #37 Sara Jacobovici#29 Wonderful comment @debasish majumder. I highlight this statement; "...in every moment we are evolving, and one state is converting to other where the quality of previous state no longer exist." Intriguing on many levels. One thing it reminds me of is where in Einstein's theory of relativity there is the following description (it is an excerpt taken from this link http://everythingforever.com/einstein.htm) "If they were able to travel at the speed of light, their time would cease completely and they would only exist trapped in timelessness."29/10/2016 #36 Sara Jacobovici#27 Your questions bring much value to this discussion @Irene Hackett. Thank you for your kind and generous words and for your insightful comment."So time and separation both an illusion", yes, except I interpret the illusion of separation as "man-made" and of time as "perception made". Now you can say it's all a matter of semantics because after all it's man's perceptions. However, perception, from my perspective is first a raw innate experience stemming from our sensory and central nervous system and only becomes man made when we assign or attach meaning to the illusion.

This is probably what leads me to the same place as Chas Wyatt, resonating most with Fernando R. Goñi , "... synchronicity is our relationship with the total, Psychic and Physical Universe and therefore it connect us with the unconscious." The idea of "non-temporal" coming into the discussion again. As with Jung's Scarab illustration, when we become aware of non-temporal connections (synchronicity) in our reality, only then can that 'shift in perception' take place, a new neural path is formed, homeostasis achieved. The concept of connecting patterns within this framework intrigues me; something about it feels as bold truth. It is no wonder that discontent and dis-ease arises as one experiences the illusion of separation. So time and separation both an illusion - in the words of Spok: "fascinating"! When Goni speaks of imagination being the "bridge" enabling 'travel' at a higher speed, I am brought to the outstanding comments of our friend Praveen Raj Gullepalli who raises excellent points about consciousness and vibration. Is imagination a type of high speed 'vibration'? Is synchronicity the product of high frequency energy? Is vibration a type of 'energy' - and can we can "control" it? Or can we flow with it? What remains for me in all this excellent exploration, is loads of questions. And as I've said before, this is true learning. You are one of the most fascinating minds on beBee dear @Sara Jacobovici; thank you for this outstanding parting of knowledge and thought sharing - a piece most excellently researched, organized and framed.

That is a great question - Richard Davidson, neuroscientist and friend of the Dalai Lama has some answers " “What we see are these high-amplitude gamma-oscillations in the brain, which are indicative of plasticity” : http://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2015/07/dalai-lama-neuroscience-compassion/397706/
I read dis-order, Leckey, not disorder. Not orderly, not rigid, which indicates greater plasticity which means greater possibility.

I will add that the sentence that says, "The Hive aims to serve as a catalyst for the wider community to learn more from one another." - has truly been my experience on beBee. :-)23/10/2016 #11 Pamela L. Williams#9 Well said Manjit. I experienced once again that confounded hierarchical corporate structure this week and I think for the first time it struck me; fear! That's behind all of it, keep the hierarchy strong or risk toppling that which is comfortable. Well I say; Away with comfort; let's work together, buzz together, think together, and we can tackle anything.23/10/2016 #9 CityVP Manjit#6 While the use of the Hive at Elsevier is different to that of beBee, it underlines the role of network hubs as professional spokes. I am in favour of the hub and spoke model because that is what I am trying to get people in my college club to see - but it is not the prevailing mindset because we generally don't think in network terms and only in the sequential form that social media takes or the hierarchical form that organizations propagate. The advantage that Elsevier have is that edges of the network are much more in focus, whereas hives become random in nature unless the hive curator understands how curate with a network mindset. That is the actual link to fractal thinking - until people start to think in network terms, they will only see things in the frame they are used to, but this frame is set to change with the way future generations relate to emerging form of network intelligence.22/10/2016 #5 Pamela L. WilliamsOkay, you can't tell me this is a coincidence!!! The BEE is going global like crazy! It is becoming the symbol for everything new and innovative!

Comments24/10/2016 #42 Ali Anani#41 Dear @namita sinha- I wish every bee would read your great and penetrating comment. You wrote "Writing and reading are medium to feel aware of our feelings and give them a safe route of expression and exchange, its almost a kind of meditation to focus on conscious writing / reading". How true!
EMotional Networks based on clusters of emotions shall reveal new findings, and I have no doubt this statement is valid. The network might show five main emotions as clusters. Emotions have connections to each other. Love shall attract people and hatred shall do a well. I started to see emotions in different perspectives.
Dear @namita sinha- do share your ideas in a buzz. They shall be valuable.24/10/2016 #41 namita sinha#40 Well, a kind of synchronicity again Dr @Ali Anani, indeed after reading your post, as already expressed, I too have been thinking on posting on how Emotional Connections are so vital and fundamental to successful social media networking, ad infact they are but "Emotional networks .. ". Come to think of it, why we all are pulled to your buzzes , well of course because you put forth such wonderful ideas but also because you value our feelings and emotions when we respond with our comments , which ultimately helps us further with our expressions and ideations . It is indeed a symbiotic relationship of great content and emotional satisfaction . As humans , we are driven constantly by how we feel ,..and its anytime good to be aware of these emotions and not suppress them.
Writing and reading are medium to feel aware of our feelings and give them a safe route of expression and exchange, its almost a kind of meditation to focus on conscious writing / reading .And some social media networks as these, allow for this safe haven to exist for all of us - where we come together for an emotional as much as an intellectual exchange ; and that's also a reason why ultimately its the like minded and emotionally close ones who become a part of a certain group / hive / community.... We feel the bond and the connection growing strong, don't we, we almost start caring for each other even though we may not have even met or spoken to so many in our networks ! The vibes continue ... to attract more ...
And as I am reflecting more on this...glad to see that it rings a bell to you too...and you shall do great justice, I am sure :)24/10/2016 #40 Ali Anani#39 Dear @namita sinha-it is always a pleasure to read your comments any time. You concluded your comment with a gem "we tend to learn so much from the processes at play around us in the nature and its never enough ...".
I don't know how feasible or even silly the idea that started ringing in my head if we have social networks why don't we have equally emotions networks? When we socialize are emotions are involved. How to relate the two is an idea that started brewing. May be you can help, dear namita24/10/2016 #39 namita sinhaDear Sir @Ali Anani, loved this buzz from you and though a bit delayed my response, I still stand to gain even more - by the post and the enriching comments as well by so many Bees !
When you talk of symbiotic existence, I am instantly connected to the idea of Emotional Intelligence in Action in Human relationships , be it at workplace, family or any other social context. And its indeed true that Social Media is another powerful one to germinate a most powerful network of connected ones.
So though Emotional intelligence ( commonly referred to as EI or EQ) begins with building awareness of one's own feelings and behaviour and then to those of others, its all about using this awareness and knowledge towards constructive and mutually beneficial long term relationships. Hence the one who knows how his partner is expected to feel and behave in a situation uses this intuition and wisdom to build the most fulfilling relationships and experiences. The perfect case for harmonious existence and synergy, but ofcourse , only if purpose and intent as always is right and not manipulative towards greed and short term gains !
Coming to ideas again, I would say its all about being aware in the moment and taking it up one at a time rather than rushing and multi tasking or forcing ideas towards deadlines ! One needs to slow down at times or change gears so to say !
Your metaphors beautifully support the fact again , that we tend to learn so much from the processes at play around us in the nature and its never enough ...22/10/2016 #38 Ali Anani#31 As this metaphor extends, trees are such a perfect image of standing strong as an individual while collaborating with all sorts of lifeforms.- yes, I agree completely with @Sara Jacobovici View more#31 As this metaphor extends, trees are such a perfect image of standing strong as an individual while collaborating with all sorts of lifeforms.- yes, I agree completely with @Sara Jacobovici in expanding this into what promises to be a great buzz. Close22/10/2016 #35 Ali Anani#28 I believe it is distortion i thinking and all for me mentality- I have done it alone- I have achieved this on my own- are just examples of this pretension. An almighty tree builds symbiotic relationship with fungi and together they established the most powerful underground social networks. It is not strong with strong or weak with strong as much as it is what symbiosis offers the two parties.22/10/2016 #34 Ali Anani#27 Yes, and I am truly happy this thought resonated wit you @Deb Lange. Being our own doesn't man isolation and no matter how strong an individual is he/she needs other people. It is going to the extremes and this or that mentality that is causing this distortion. And like you said this becomes an awakening to building symbiotic relationship and we have to search on how best to do that as not all people are the same.20/10/2016 #32 Deb Helfrich#31 I so appreciate the encouragement, @Sara Jacobovici. I have been marinating a lot on the seeming contradiction of independence and interdependence as they are both always present, it just depends on which way we squint - like the visual illusions where one image yields two entirely different pictures depending on which feature we focus on. And of course , fractal patterns - we, as observers, are the determining factor between seeing the initial shape or the larger patterns the repetition of that initial shape creates - that shape is always both an independent entity and an essential part of the pattern.
Watching all these ideas, concepts, and different expressions by different minds each day is priceless. I am so grateful for all this knowledge ripe for snatching as it flies by; I feel like a Venus Flytrap myself.
As @Ali Anani said "The movement of the parts selve the functionality of the whole system. "20/10/2016 #30 Deb Helfrich#28 It feels like we are moving a bit more in the direction of seeing the entire globe as a web of symbiotic relationships, but it runs counter to the trend of putting ourselves - humans - into boxes for the last century or so. As this metaphor extends, trees are such a perfect image of standing strong as an individual while collaborating with all sorts of lifeforms.20/10/2016 #28 Deb LangeIn reality, we do not live our lives n our own. We are all in symbiotic relationships with each other, but, we pretend we are independent. I wonder if we accepted this natural condition to be interdependent whether we could be better at supporting one another in work and life.20/10/2016 #27 Deb LangeDear @Ali Anani it is the symbiotic relationship that resonates with me so much in this post. Our society has favoured individualism, do things for yourself, be independent etc - that is all very well, I think we do need to be responsible. BUT, when we think for ourselves and create our lives as if we are separate from each other, we wonder why so many people feel alienated.
Many people feel at odds with how to be inter-dependent, or how to create a symbiotic relationship like plants, where you may do something for me and I do something different, but we are both supporting each other in different ways. In reality, we are not alone and we can not live without one another. I do hope we can learn how to create better symbiotic relationships with each other and all of nature.

Indeed!09/10/2016 #62 Ali Anani#61 Dear @Sara Jacobovici- what a great insight "So we are not just discussing being on the edge but whether we are on the internal or external side of the edge". I can't wait to read about your thoughts. My intuition you are hitting a treasure. I was thinking of @CityVP Manjit last buzz on which I commented and I feel this ideas takes us even a step further. Great thinking09/10/2016 #61 Sara JacoboviciDear @Ali Anani and @Irene Hackett. I have not forgotten the encouragement to develop the concept of being on the edge of a triad. I'm working on it and studying the comments from you both. I was working on something focusing on duality and integration and thought of the possibility that the duality of the edge, one side connected to the sides that enclose the triad, the internal side facing the triad and the external side, although connected with other edges, the external side faces away from the containment produced by the triad. Could this external boundary be the edge of integration formed in the contained internal area, or integrated area, where we do not experience the integration? So we are not just discussing being on the edge but whether we are on the internal or external side of the edge; a duality holding a triad containing the integrated area formed by the internal side of the edge. Just updating you both with some of the thoughts going through my mind. I hope I am not travelling too far beyond the original concept. Please let me know.05/10/2016 #59 Anonymous#58 Dear @Sara Jacobovici - what rises to the surface as I think more deeply about what it may mean to live on the edge is to face our fears: to 'free fall' into the deep, expansive spaces we resist in order to feel the intensity of aliveness; in ourselves, in others, in all the universe. Ironic that to live on the edge may mean non-resistance.05/10/2016 #53 Ali Anani#52 "...On the edge in order to live fully and love deeply"- stunning quote from your comment dear @Irene Hackett- Yes, avoiding being on the edge is a recipe for missing many beauties in our lives.

The 'edge' is an interesting word; it implies risk. To live fully is to risk much. The risk in accepting all that is may be the most peaceful journey. Ideas flow freely as that fall amidst a spacious backdrop. I aspire to stand in peace, and yet on the edge in order to live fully and love deeply.

Trees are amazing in displaying their majestic dignity. They continue to grow unless there is an unexpected catastrophic event. Even so, they have the ability to make a comeback. I wish this was more prevalent in humans, however, we seem to put tangibles above intangibles thus creating a false sense of neediness. The need for "keep up with Joneses" has created a greedy society and with the decline in jobs, we're grasping for solutions. It seems we can't see the forest for the trees because our approach is a one-way street.
I am not one to listen or read the news. I would rather sit on my back porch, sip my coffee and appreciate the trees. We shouldn't fret about what we can't control and to be honest, I am not very successful with this. So, like @Deb Helfrich, I live in a vacuum when it comes to the news media.

As we know, public corporation is seen by investors as an investment tool. Nothing new there, however what is new in the past 30 years is the speed in which transactions are completed. With the growth of technology, business transactions - including sales of entire companies - are not unlike the 'flipping' of houses. The turn around is unbelievably fast to put it mildly. It is not like it once was, where businesses were built for the long-term, to create jobs and build communities.

There was a line from TV show where the character was talking about her thinking process: "It's a hot mess of crazy in there"24/09/2016 #109 CityVP ManjitI want to get back to the fingering effect and the researcher who studied these sand fractals, Xiang Cheng - for the actual research Cheng did to discover this effect is mindboggingly complex, the kind that @Vincenzo De Florio View moreI want to get back to the fingering effect and the researcher who studied these sand fractals, Xiang Cheng - for the actual research Cheng did to discover this effect is mindboggingly complex, the kind that @Vincenzo De Florio and @Milos Djukic can get their mind around https://arxiv.org/ftp/arxiv/papers/0712/0712.2019.pdf but which is out of reach to the layman.
Then I go to the other dimension of people studying effects of people looking at this effect and the words apophenia and pareidolia pop up. http://59ways.blogspot.ca/2012/01/apophenia-and-pareidolia_09.html This too can become way too outside the range of the layman, indeed the more one studies this, the more we begin to identify with the world that @Gerald Hecht and @Deb Helfrich will readily understand, well beyond the mainstream.
What Milos does well in his comments is make a linkage between the creation of social networks and complex adaptive systems, which so far invariably brings me back to the one place where these linkages are studied at depth, which is namely the Sante Fe Institute and even then that Institute provides disclaimers between the work of individual researchers and its purpose. One such work is by Melanie Mitchell, called Complex Systems: Network Systems. http://www.santafe.edu/media/workingpapers/06-10-036.pdf
Even if there is a Seth Godin or Malcolm Gladwell type that can channel the work of researchers into mainstream insights, I recognize that complex adaptive systems explain much but the large body of business thinking is wired differently, so we can learn to see these thing but not get mainstream business folk to see what it is we have learned. That is what I see as "hidden" in fractal power, so I am still grappling with how best to make this invisible visible - otherwise we end up in complex thinking communicated as a specialty. Close24/09/2016 #104 Fatima WilliamsSo coming back reading this buzz is as @Donna-Luisa Eversley mentioned is beauty beyond measure and it's quality is simply profound.
I would love to agree with @Irene Hackett beautiful comment here as she shares my thoughts on this
" You, dear Ali are the "Fractal Power acting on systems (beBee) on organizing movement (of thoughts and ideas) ....so as to maximize their use of available resources." Your inspiration moves us, our thoughts & ideas beautifully colliding and taking new direction and shape - such as cannot be measured, but like a fractal coastline, when one looks close, such inspiration is much bigger than the senses can perceive"
As Milos says " Learning about fractals to me is more like absorbing and shaping of my perceptions "
The beauty of the object is in the hands and eyes of the maker and that beauty reflects that person inner beauty like that of the beautiful snowflake and the Fractals Forever beBee's who have the Fractal Power to organise, enrich and enlightened play a major role in avoiding the crowdedness of ideas.
Thank you @Ali Anani for opening up the fractal world to me :)18/09/2016 #101 Fatima Williams#97 @Gerald Hecht it's funny that you remembered me on this one as I had a hearty laugh on reading the comments this evening on this buzz and lost my comment while typing and had put it off for later.

Comments06/09/2016 #34 Anonymous#33 #30 @Jim Murray and @CityVP Manjit, yes, it is not easy. This is not an "instant idea" and anyone who feels the need, or recognize the importance can investigate gradually, step by step. Writing about fractals is more like teaching and mutual shaping of perception rather than activism. It must not be forgotten that every discovery has always been preceded by years or even decades of painstaking learning and investigation. I'm trying to provide scientific communication with practical examples in this highly complex area. Especially given the huge importance of science regarding the complex adaptive systems, particularly when it comes to social networks, their sustainable development-prosperity and human relations (interactions) in social media. Those who will rule in this area, will also have the possibility for a much greater "manipulation", whose final effects can be also extremely humane and aimed toward cooperation for mutual benefits for social media owners and users. Future leadership is about social complexity with a growing trend of social encounters and exchanges. This is not a game (social networks and complexity), fractal was once a symbo of beautyl, while this time it is essence. cc. @Ali Anani, @John White, MBA and @Javier beBee06/09/2016 #33 Jim Murray#1 @Milos Djukic...It's taken a bit of time and a lot of effort but I am starting to see what you are getting at. The idea of everything being tied to everything else is intriguing. But I can see that this would be hard for a lot of people to grasp. People tend to put so much faith in dogma.06/09/2016 #30 CityVP Manjit#26 There is one and only one fractal answer to what is a fractal? Google it. Should then one stumble on life science/technology publications http://www.fractal.org/Life-Science-Technology/Publications.htm then happy readings. Where that reading takes anyone is where-ever it takes them, for this is the 21st century and as Milos states in his LinkedIn article.QUOTE [Please never ever forget that Fractals are strictly related to chaos.] END OF QUOTE. If it does not mean anything that our heart, lungs and far more importantly our brain is best understood at the fractal dimension, then stay on the orderly path, and I do know what to call people who are bound by order, but because I need a label for that, then that is my current limitation. If Tim Berners Lee is good with fractals (and he is the inventor of the world-wide-web) and see's it valuable to explore "the fractal nature of the semantic web" http://www.aaai.org/ojs/index.php/aimagazine/article/view/2161/2017 then that is his prerogative and whether he is a "fractalite" is really of no consequence. That I use the word "dinosaurs" is MY BAD. Sometimes I just can't give up that order thing up myself - and that is not very fractal of me. I don't mind calling my learning journey as fractal, it probably is.06/09/2016 #29 Anonymous#25 #27

Comments18/11/2016 #112 Max CarterI dig the concepts @Milos Djkic. I am curious if you have studied digital to analog conversions?
I think of the binary expression of digital as the fractal beginning with the use of oct and hex to expand it into the analog. Behind the fractal design is where the chaos factor is. It's behind the fractal so to speak. I feel it is that chaos factor that is in the binary that on occasion switches it up at random to change the design that eludes us.
Who or what is making the random decision that changes the fractal design?
I tend to lean toward gyre theory which says simply stated that at the heart of the smallest subatomic particle is a singularity that works on a vortex. My theory that I can not prove or disprove s that there is a consciousness within the singularity.
It's the only thing that explains the chaos factor with anything that makes sense. for me.

Its really amazing that he started singularity university to solve the some of the major challenges facing humanity collaborating with professors & experts all over the world. Its Inspirational.27/08/2016 #17 Yogesh SukalHello Everyone,
Thank you so much your welcome notes. As steeve jobs said once 'stay foolish stay hungry', so when you are hungry for the inspiration, you can fetch it from any corner of the world and that's a social networking for me.
Its really great to know you all here. As I already mentioned earlier great concept & beBee's way of social networking.
I welcome you all to hives like 'Martian' and 'Singularity' which I believe will be our futuristic buzz topics.
As with Martian our possible nearest home in our solar system and with singularity again futuristic term related to understanding of black hole which also related to how artificial intelligence will evolve to reach its own singularity.
I will be sharing the post on the same in recent future, recently enjoyed @David B. Grinberg thoughts on Mars missions of NASA's along with private space leaders .
I do have few more hives from mechanical engineering technology which I am sure will catch gazes of students and professionals from academic as well as industry leaders in the same technology.
Really looking forward for positive social engagement, sharing of thoughts, knowledge, inspiration and to have a fun here :)27/08/2016 #10 CityVP ManjitHi Yogesh welcome to BeBee !! I glad to see that you share similiar passions that David Grinberg has for space and cosmos. In other areas such as the singularity, I am more interested in the thinking of people like Ray Kurzweil, because he has already created technologies that have empowered the lives or enable a new type of freedom for people with challenges, whether that is in the realm of hearing, or brain implants that help blind people to see in a technological way, even if it is not sight as we know it. From there I can embrace futuristic visions and try to build a more informed view about transhumanism. So I welcome your arrival, especially since I see such promise in the youth of India as a generation that represents the emergence of 21st Century minds.

Comments29/08/2016 #52 Dale Masters#51 @Ali Anani As the Universe is Infinite in both size and complexity, I should think that the search for understanding it will also be infinite (which is a good thing. It forces us to be childlike, as each new thing will amaze us and keep our understanding fresh and new. )28/08/2016 #51 Ali Anani#50 Great @Dale masters- your comment is timely. I am writing a buzz on bubbles- all types of pubbles. What strikes my attention is new facts about sound. SOund travels in bubbles and not waves! if true, then even our established scientific "facts" become very shaken. I wonder for how long we shall discover more to find that accepted scientific facts are no longer accepted.28/08/2016 #50 Dale Masters#40 @Ali Anani Absolutely!
Human logic is (sometimes) not logical.
A. Man is a plant.
B. All plants are green.
C: Therefore, man is green.
Internally consistent logic, but proceeding from a false premise.
If something is assumed, but not known, then anything based on that assumption can be wildly inaccurate. This is why I believe that science should take all things as a possibility, rather than proceed from the standpoint that an idea is false until proven true by science.28/08/2016 #44 Anonymous#41@Sara Jacobovici - I think that 'space' may be the 'unmanifested' and it intrigues me beyond no end! I really like hearing about your work and it makes me think how many people are being blessed by the experience you are offering them, a chance to perhaps open up a new level of consciousness. How wonderful!28/08/2016 #43 Anonymous#32 @Peter van Doorn - I listened to the complete video "Is Consciousness the Unified Field?" - outstanding!! @Sara Jacobovici and @Ali Anani - have you seen this video? I would love to hear any comments that come from it. A much more scientifically based presentation on the exact thought lines of my comments. It provides excellent summation of what consciousness is in terms of "Universal Intelligence", or the "unmanifested" and goes onto give attention to "Non material realities". It pulls superstring theory into the mix as well. @Dale Masters, you will enjoy as well - and I appreciate your comments about the ego - which some say is the 'false' self, or the unconscious self.28/08/2016 #41 Sara Jacobovici#36 Definitely @Irene Hackett! Awareness, or a conscious state of awareness is that space. You notice I say conscious state because that is what Frankl may be saying: it's not enough to know, we need to be aware; it's not enough to be aware, we need to bring that awareness to consciousness. I have also worked and trained others in the non-verbal therapies that once we use the creative arts to evoke the non-verbal, it is our responsibility as therapists to know what to do with that which we have helped to evoke and allow the individual to find the words to understand and make sense of it on a verbal level.
Yes that space can be known, and we're working on that all the time, (consciously and unconsciously) but as long as it is a work in progress, we can only name what we know at the time. Nothing wrong with that.28/08/2016 #40 Ali Anani@Dale Masters- I wonder sometimes if I would be eligible to use the term "imagination capacity" and it has to be huge to "The Universe is not only stranger than we imagine, it's stranger than we CAN imagine."@Sara Jacobovici added beautifully with amazing reasoning why both knowledge and imagination are senses. If our understanding of quantum physics is limited to five people on earth then it reflects on our inabilities to imagine what doesn't exist now. Does complexity limit our imagination when we tend to think logically and with limited understanding of many topics?28/08/2016 #39 Dale Masters@Irene Hackett All matter in the Universe responds to human measurement. This seems to indicate that matter has (at the very least) a rudimentary form of consciousness.
The idea of a conscious Universe has far-reaching implication for humans---it indicates that the human ego is WAY too large.
Oh...and recent research indicates there was no Big Bang, which makes sense, because the concept was introduced in the 1800s as a way to reconcile science and religion. It's not necessary, because Genesis seems to indicate a REcreation of the Earth. The command "Be fruitful, and multiply, and REplenish the Earth is a statement which indicates that humans had previously inhabited the Earth...otherwise, the word would be "plenish", or "to make plenty" or "make a large amount of" (OE---ME)27/08/2016 #37 Anonymous#32 My friend @Peter van Doorn - true, another question, can we "know" the answer to what 'was' before the Big Bang'? And I am excited that you have given me some wonderful listening material for my evening walk, with that YouTube video which I have not yet seen! I watched a few minutes of it and am now looking forward to listening to the rest while I walk - thank you!27/08/2016 #36 Anonymous2 of 2 - @Sara Jacobovici - Getting back to our beloved Victor Frankl, he brings up very interesting ideas about the "indoctrination" of "reductionism" occurring in the American Education system and how it may be responsible for the American student's experience of the "existential vacuum", having been repeatedly exposed to the idea that "..man is defined as nothing but 'an adaptive control system' " and that "life is nothing but a combustion process, and an oxidation process". He goes on to suggest that we "..must have knowledge plus the awareness of its limitations." Could it be that this 'awareness' is the place, the space - the consciousness from which imagination emerges. And can it be named or known?27/08/2016 #35 Anonymous1 of 2. First let me say that I absolutely treasure connecting with you here @Sara Jacobovici - really, it is my honorable pleasure to interact with a woman of your intelligence and character! I have been a lover of both the Old and the New Testament for many years so it is a joy that you reference it in your reply. I think you may be right when you say the senses that were in play before the Big Bang came from God, non-physical, non form. If I may use the New Testament, John 1:1 says: "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." It suggests that the Word was God. I like how you illustrate the non-physical 'word' creating physical sense - 'sound' - and then physical form. You go onto share an intriguing thought, "I believe that the "dark chaos" over which the spirit of God hovers described at the beginning is a possible original space from which imagination emerged." Yes! This "space", not unlike Frankl's "space between two nerve cells" is necessary and may be the place from which 'all that is' emerges. This is fascinating to me.

All appreciations for your wonderful words. My words will be less to express for your expression and Aha! what an amazing grand welcome. Thanks again.26/08/2016 #51 Ali Anani#50 Thank you dear @debasish majumder. You remind me of a great point. A fractal alone different from fractals feeding back to each other. The human body has many fractal structures as the nervous system and vascular system. These two have fractal structure and if one is affected it shall affect the other fractal. Fractal to fractal feedback deserves a deep searching. The fractal brain is feeding other fractals and how much can we explore is beyond imagination.26/08/2016 #50 debasish majumderSir, Dr. @Ali Anani, Phd., the fractal of trees with human lungs is not just intriguing, but the most striking feature of your fractal is that, the human trees is also getting oxygen, only source of production, whether good or bad fruits, also getting from the upper part of the human body, and the seed is the brain, which in continuous form of change in a process of negation, an infinite incremental process. the law of mechanics being formulated by the seed of sir Issac Newton has now evolved and elevated to more superior seed, which have no longer replication of the older one and it is paving the way for further development followed by continuous process of change. extremely relevant post sir in terms of understanding about producing "Good Fruits" in beeBee platform and you are truly adept and adroit in producing such lovely fruits which you are continuously doing. thank you very much for sharing such lovely post.26/08/2016 #49 Ali Anani#44Sara @Sara Jacobovici- I am reading again your last buzz on Exploring Imaginative Ideas and this paragraph drew my attention: One skill that we acquire is the ability to imagine. According to Michele and Robert Root-Bernstein, (2009) imaging is the most important thinking skill we acquire for creativity. They define imaging as the ability to recreate sensory impressions and feelings in our minds in the absence of external stimuli.
We can alter, combine, synthesize and otherwise manipulate sensory images to form images and ideas of things never perceived in reality.
This adds great value to my response to the comment of @CityVP Manjit below26/08/2016 #47 Ali Anani#44 Thank you so much dear @Sara Jacobovici and I am truly blushing. Just to add a little info, the thickness of all branches almost matches the thickness of the trunk of a tree. This is not very commonly known. As for your writing " I see a person who is generous to share the fruits of your wisdom" you are very imaginative. The fruits we produce in shape and color reflect our inner selves. THis is one of the buzzes I am planning to write about. Thank you my friend for your immense motivation26/08/2016 #46 Ali Anani#43 Thank you dear @CityVP Manjit for your question and congratulations. I would have placed and distributed the ambassadors letters in the two wings of a butterfly instead of lungs. This is to emphasize the title of the buzz. The nodal and fractal-like distribution also serves in pointing that if we change the letters positions new things may emerge; same like moving a node. The lung as well a butterfly have two wings with the right one using real numbers and the left one imaginary ones. This is how Mandelbrot used complex numbers (real + imaginary ones) arrived at his strange attractor. I redrew the background image to make these points, hopefully, clearer

Comments13/09/2016 #99 Dale Masters#90 The presence of the fork is essential. Without it, no change would have been possible. It is the presence of the fork, NOT what choice was made, that is the important factor.
However, one never knows where one will end up. In the case of the business decision, the career path may have been altered temporarily, but the company choice may have ended up exactly the same (albeit without meeting the plant owner at that time.)
Speaking of time, timelines are funny things. There are nexus points in history that are unavoidable in a number of timelines...but that nexus point may be a simple thing, like someone who changes history in all relative timelines in the same manner...because they cancelled a plane trip (or missed the plane), that later crashed, killing everyone aboard.22/08/2016 #92 Randy KehoWe're faced with change not destiny. In each of your examples, the person could have continued down the same path. They chose to change their plan. What you're labeling destiny is a conscience effort to change direction. You, and you alone, are in control of your future. Destiny is an abstraction, it does not exist in reality. It is a mind game.22/08/2016 #91 Lisa Gallagher#89 @CityVP Manjit again, very wise comment. I sort of on break today from Social media- I tend to spend hours reading other's buzzes, reposting to beBee and twitter, and once in a while it can catch up with me. My brain feels tired today LOL. So my comment will probably reflect that even though I can't disagree with anything you wrote. Many of us do tend to migrate to some of the same people's buzzes over and over but for me it's because I enjoy their writing. I meet new people on here almost daily and find new buzzes to comment on, so I'd like to think that I'm trying to branch out. I'm sure we are all can be a bit tribal, some more than others. Something to keep in mind. Again, thank you!! I have great respect for all those you tagged below and many more!22/08/2016 #90 Franci Eugenia HoffmanDestiny, being an inevitable cause of events has no rules and no boundaries. Destiny has an uncanny way of altering our lives, which can be negative or positive. What is intriguing is while we on the ride of life and meet the fork in the road, our decision may be of no consequence because the plan has already been laid out for us. Whether right, wrong or indifferent, the real reason may never be known to us; it is only how we perceive it to be.22/08/2016 #89 CityVP Manjit#88 Dear Lisa, I did read the wolf-pack buzz and I am a great believer that it is tribalism that shapes destiny, because this form of destiny has repeatedly been shown to have been shaped through war. That conflict does not have to occur at the national level, it can happen at the media level or it can even happen in our own mind.
When we wash destiny of all the bits that are uncomfortable and sterilize destiny into a utopian or noble ideal we get into the business of re-writing history. This brings me to the burning question which is, how can we study destiny at philosophical detail and yet continue to repeat the patterns of history, history constantly repeating itself?
That is why I will push aside the question of destiny and deal with diversity first. In my 20 years of being on discussion groups, all have had the same pattern, they all become wolf-packs - which means what? It means that the same group people begin talking to the same group of people - and now one has insiders and outsiders. My destiny as seen from the lens of diversity remains a constant outsider. This outsider invites the outsiders in, not as insiders but people who can have the diversity of inside and outside - and then there is no wolf-pack - there is only diversity.
My destiny depends on diversity - so does that of @Javier beBee and @Juan Imaz - so as our Ambassador Lisa, IMHO focus on the diversity, focus on the flourishing. I love the diversity of an @Ali Anani, of a @Sara Jacobovici, of a @Gert Scholtz, of a @Milos Djukic, of a @Savvy Raj, of a @Lisa Gallagher and the list goes on and on until diversity reaches my own Dunbar number or another new destiny.22/08/2016 #88 Lisa Gallagher#87 @CityVP Manjit, I'm so sorry I missed your comment. You are a very wise man. I want to read your comment again so I can have a more detailed reply and thank you. When I read these posts and the comments on Ali's buzzes it opens my mind so much. I may not understand everything but that's where others can come in and help me to understand better. Thank you to Ali too!19/08/2016 #87 CityVP Manjit#85 Dear Lisa, the D in Destiny is not the D in DNA, destiny is simply our capacity as human beings to reprogram our destination. Destiny has different kinds of fuel, some fueled by powerful imagination and some fueled by foolish fantasy. The one plus point of your anxiety order is that it proves you have a powerful imagination. The challenge this imagination gives you serves in you the thinking that creates great anxiety, but the same challenge of imagination allows you to want to change your destiny.
You know what your compass is today, you know what your direction is and your imagination is now guiding you to a new destination, and you are not afraid of obtaining help and support to get to where you want to be. Those that have the courage to love as much as you do will feel hurt and pain at much greater level than those that talk of love but don't live their love fully.
So we know that our imagination can move us to a new destination and it can also overwhelm us - of if we don't exhibit the courage of love, we choose foolish fantasy and we become like driftwood in the river. Yet none of this is the value of destiny.
The greatest value of destiny is KNOW THAT WE HAVE ARRIVED and what that SETTLEMENT means. Otherwise our destiny is that of a nomad. At this moment in life it is as good as it gets, I have arrived and for the next three years I am not interested in destiny, unless someones destiny crashes into me or shit happens, which destroys the settlement. Once settled the children are safe, and they have the opportunity to live the life we did not, and that is what my parents did so the sacrifice was lesser for us. Yet what is the purpose of struggle if we never arrive. What is the purpose of destiny if it is continuous loop of never finding life.19/08/2016 #85 Lisa GallagherHi @Ali Anani, your story below about destiny was very capturing. I read through the comments with @Sara Jacobovici &@CityVP Manjit, so impressed with how the comments/discussion just flowed. Someone used the word, synchronicity- I agree. Very interesting to hear how the football players path took a turn because of traffic, your brother became a Dr. because your mom wanted someone in the family to become one and your brother quit smoking for his life and son. I do believe in destiny. I'm not sure how destiny finds us, or do we find it? But, I've seen it happen all too often which makes me really believe in it. I worked many hours per week at the hospital after I had my 2 children. I loved my work but hated leaving my kids with a babysitter. I dreamed of being a stay at home mom but never thought that would be an option. We struggled with 2 incomes. One day my husband came home from work and told me he had a job offer out of state. After some time of talking it over, we decided he should do it. We ended up in a smaller town (much smaller) and I was able to finally stay home with my kids. We didn't make a lot of extra money because the increase in wages my husband received made up for what I wasn't bringing in. It was SO worth it. I never saw myself living in a rural town or being able to stay home with my children, destiny? What was even stranger for me- I found out after we moved here my father used to hunt in the County I live in, it was always his dream to move to this area and I never knew until my mother told me after we settled in.18/08/2016 #83 AnonymousI've put all my knowledge (still very limited) into writing of this post and also into writing all of my further comments.

Certainly, it's no easy task to talk about chaos. This way of commenting by all participants is the ultimate example of how it should be done proper critical thinking study on the topic of an utmost importance.
Your comments and a balanced approach of all participants about this delicate subject is very close to me. Thank you very much dear Ali. Close18/08/2016 #80 CityVP Manjit#72 Dear @Sara Jacobovici I highly value the way you look at the world because that is the meaning of diversity, and through the lens you utilize you are learning and what you learn contributes to the journey of your life - which we happen to call destiny.
For my learning journey affords me to first qualify the reservations but not to prove my point but simply what shall proceed into my own field of attention and what must be put aside, since we both know that none of us can know it all.
Quantum Consciousness Often means Nonsense by Matthew R. Francis
The Myth of Quantum Consciousness
Skepticism is an interesting perspective because again, it is @Milos Djukic posts which introduced me to the idea of "reproducibility" and when I INDIVIDUALLY study this it has a greater transforming effect because I am taking logical steps in my own learning journey. I have poor statistical thinking ability, I am prone to logical fallacies, I am not as creative as I should be in design thinking, I am trying to appreciate the engineering and scientific mindset and all of this is on a foundation that I do have the skills of abstraction and that this is the foundation stone for my learning journey. Destiny in my learning journey remains mythological.18/08/2016 #79 Ali AnaniDear @Milos Djukic- my mind is busy thinking about your comment and your linked post. I am planning to publish the latest on Saturday my response to your great buzz. So many ideas are rolling in my head that I have to find a way to structure my forthcoming post. But I tell you one thing- your buzz exhausted me mentally and it enriched my thinking. To differ with a wise man is to learn.

The article called "The Dopest Gadgets Made from Cardboard" http://au.complex.com/pop-culture/2013/10/dopest-cardboard-gadgets/ does not mean dopey or stupid. Dope is slang for cool. So that this word is not lost in translation, it relates to the phrase "so dope" see Urban Dictionary for slang meaning http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=So%20dope Close
