Comments12/01/2017 #6 CityVP 🐝 ManjitEmergence as art is always fascinating. It is interesting that the Mandelbrot set which also looks so beautiful is not its natural colour and the process of colouring is interesting in itself. The link below takes us through that :
Colouring the Mandelbrot Set
This article describes "escape time" and goes on to say :
"If we know that a particular point generates a sequence which escapes, and we know the escape time of that sequence, then we can color that point based upon its escape time. By doing this, pretty spectacular images can be created."
Colour brings home the details that would otherwise be missed in the natural black and white and adds the one quality to complexity that all humans appreciate, that of beauty.

1: The first - trusting our senses in our organisations #26 I would love it to be out by September 2017
2: A draft of the skills and capacities to give and receive non defensive feedback to ourselves, each other and in groups.
3: .A draft of the story of caring for my mother to die at home - a book about death, dying and care of our aging loved ones.
What I know now is writing a book is one thing, then sharing it so it is of value to others is just as much as work as writing!
Unless perhaps, i apply your great model of writing themed blog posts that become a way of sharing and getting feedback from

I wanted initially to include the comments on the buzzes. It turned out that the comments exceeded the book size by an almost a factor of 5. Instead, I shall extract the main highlights of comments soon in a separate buzz.
I liked so much your kaleidoscopic effects example. I used before another analogy of opal as we see different reflections from different sides or angles. Yes, we need to see all perspectives and this was one main reason for compiling my buzzes into E-books.27/12/2016 #22 siraj shaik#19 Hope to see the journey more stronger making complexities being unlocked with simplified reference expressions from the unlocked info's shared adding not just pages but purposeful subject matter. And your words comes as loads of appreciating pats and filling the heart with warm feelings. Before I take pause, surely will make it possible to share some points from discussions, to let the knowledge flow further to grow. The subject matter related to posts I share had been delivered during interactions via real presence and virtually a few times. So I don't bother of owning any nor I focus to target, fish or net... all I focus onto reach. Sir @Ali Anani best wishes to you and all. I have reasons to believe in time travel and life forms out side of earth. "The way we see it: kaleidoscopic effects, what anyone see it, others may not see the same. But can be tuned to share synchronizing in line". Looking ahead to read the unlocked phenomena's at the same moving from present fourth to fifth automation culturing stepping into seventh industrial revolution. There are great minds, researchers, thought and productive thinkers with full of passion. Some carry more than one representation of their own, they know the why's and I am no one to judge. But being active on connected technologies some or many overlooking the phenomenon of 4th automation and 5th Industrial revolution "Catch the Cache".27/12/2016 #20 Amina AlamiThe New Year is like a blank book and I'm so blessed to have your e-book be the first to fill up some of its pages.Nothing is more inspiring than imagination beyond imagination to begin the first chapter of this New Year book.

Sir Ali Anani.22/12/2016 #63 Alan CullerAn inspiring story @Ali Anani, Thank you.
Imagination is foundational, but when combined with committed and persistent action it can produce amazing results.
A colleague once conducted a research study on success. She interviewed over 500 very successful people from many different field -entrepreneurs, artists, sports figures, business executives, scientists.
Some had started with nothing; some had a "leg up" with connections or family in their field. Some remained successful; some lost it all and had to rebuild along the way.
The only thing that they had in common was their attitude towards failure.
Most of us internalize failure -the failed result is a personal failing -"I shoulda -if only I coulda. . ."
These folks saw failure as data --a missed target? -by how much? -an opportunity to correct their aim. What they internalized was their commitment to the target and the corrected action they must take.
Sounds like Charlie had this attitude.
Thanks for sharing and for starting me thinking again, Ali. I can always depend on you to do that.
Happy New Year,
Alan22/12/2016 #62 Ali AnaniDear @Mohammed Sultan- thank you for your refreshing comment. I couldn't stop thinking about reverse imagination. I am planning to write my next buzz about it sparked the idea. I shall surely refer to your beautiful comment in my buzz. I appreciate greatly your thoughts22/12/2016 #61 Mohammed Sultan#49 Thank you for sharing your creative slideshow.The imagination in marketing is limitless.Like Dove brand which is positioned on a beauty platform based on the marketers reverse thinking; from the mind of the customers to the mind of the marketers.All the perfume industry is based on a similar concept.Using a reverse imagination for marketing a new perfume,the marketers first outlines their targets for a certain price ,at a certain date ,usually with a type of scent and predetermined name and ,then,launch the perfume with a predetermined message associated with customers emotion such as; fantasy,prettiness,sexiness...etc.
I understand that this reality goes beyond reverse thinking to imagination and,then,to reserve imagination.If the logic behind this reality is known it may destroy the romance,dream and mystery associated with the reverse imagination of these brands!The reverse imagination of marketers gives many brands a feeling,nowadays we see Ads for cosmetics that have nothing to do with lipsticks or hair dressing ,for cars that scarcely mention cars.In today's marketing,there's no limit except for the marketers imagination.Companies which get ahead and stay a head are those who take the lead in using their reverse imagination to recognize opportunities.Thank you dear @CityVP Manjit for raising the concept of Reverse Imagination.22/12/2016 #60 Ali Anani#55 You wrote dear @Joris Plaatstaal "The red line is not imagination, but ruthless determination". I believe it is both imagination and ruthless determination together. Imagination opens new paths, new possibilities, shows new ways, makes the impossible possible with sheer determination and persistence.21/12/2016 #55 Joris PlaatstaalDo you really think this is a story about imagination, @Ali Anani?
I can't help seeing this story being all about having a purpose and the determination to reach that purpose. The classic "American dream"...
Charlie had a dream, a purpose, "Touring the world". Okay, it is a purpose.... Her mother was so good to provide her a possibility. Charlie took the chance, with great determination and spirit. And she won her dream. The classic "American Dream".
One out of many get the chance to live it.
Reaching what you want is a lot of work and hardship, not only for yourself, mind you, it takes a toll on your loved ones too. The red line is not imagination, but ruthless determination. With a small chance you find yourself, just there, at the top of your expectations. And then discover it means just nothing.
I have been there. Reaching my goal with great determination. I succeeded in that, at the cost of my imagination and sacrifices of my loved ones.
In those days I earned more in a month than I do now in a year. But I am so much happier and more free. Got my imagination back too. And an other kind of determination. And a different purpose. Live another question.
For me it is no longer getting wealthy and successful. Been there, got the T-shirt and I hated it.
For me the question is " How can we make earth a pleasant place to live in"? I have my ideas, but still haven't a clue about how to achieve it.21/12/2016 #53 Amina AlamiImagination coupled with determination can move mountains. Charlie fused the elements available to her to create a new reality. Imagination allowed her to think of a world without barriers; a world where the shape of her past does not have to dictate the shape of her future. Thank you Ali Anani for sharing this inspiring story.21/12/2016 #52 Donald GrandyLook no further than Rosa Parks who's imagination led her to refusing to give up her seat on a bus and to whom the United States Congress would call "the mother of the freedom movement".

One of the presentations that I wrote and is still one of my favorite presentations is titled "Reverse Businesses"
Now, you shocked me with your term "Reverse Imagination". I love it and I believe this is a concept that deserves to be studied in a greater detail. You hooked me with it and I have a good reason to believe probing it shall reveal some very interesting findings. Thank you my friend.21/12/2016 #48 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#21 Another affinity I find with your reminiscence of the eight children your parents raised, is ironic because that is the same number of children that came into our life and grew up before our eyes, albeit your parents raised them as two people, whereas we had two grandparents and three brothers and their wives to support the eight children that are now eight sparking adults.21/12/2016 #47 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#21 Dear @Ali Anani that is perhaps the greatest imagination of all, to imagine being in the shoes of one's parents - to relate to a different time and different circumstances that would be alien to our technologically and economically transformed age that we reside in - it is reverse imagination - the kind of imagination that brings us back to our family roots. We often think of imagination that either builds a future or is crafted in the present - but the imagination to place ourselves in a different time and way, is that which connects imagination to appreciation the most.
- 06/12/2016Scientists blend photosynthesis and quantum physics to improve solar cells. Four physicists at the University of California, Riverside decided to blend photosynthesis and quantum physics to work towards greener solar cells. Plants effectively regulate energy flow from the sun, but since current affordable man-made solar cells hover around just 20 percent efficiency, the scientists decided to take cues from vegetation.
Current solar cells require feedback controllers and voltage converters to manage fluctuations in the amount of energy streaming from the sun, and end up wasting loads of energy. Their lack of efficiency is one hurdle standing in the way of mass adoption. But plants don’t need such hindering mechanisms. The UC Riverside team decided to reevaluate solar energy conversion in light of both photosynthesis’ efficiency and quantum physics principles.
The physicists created what UC Riverside calls a novel kind of quantum heat engine photocell, a device that assists in the sunshine-to-electricity conversion process. Their new photocell draws on two quantum mechanical photocell systems that absorb either one or two colors of light, allowing the photocell to alternate between absorbing light at high and low power. According to UC Riverside, this innovation could allow a photocell to “convert varying levels of solar power into a steady-state output.”
For UC Riverside assistant professor Nathan Gabor, who took part in the research, the journey to a better solar cell started in 2010 with the simple question, “Why are plants green?” He found out no one truly understands why, and decided to search for an answer. His quest, drawing on his physics background melded with deeper study into biology, may unlock the secrets to a more effective solar cell.
Comments06/12/2016 #2 Ken Boddie#1 Thanks for this interesting article, Claire. I'm still experiencing some of the ups and downs of the solar industry here in Oz and have worked my way through a few 'cowboy' installers. But it looks like the future is looking much better than my so called 'state of the art' investment for my own roof 5 years ago. My solar panels are doing well but it seems that they work most efficiently at low temperature. Daytime temperatures here in Queensland average in the upper twenties (Celsius) for most of the year and get up into the thirties in the summer, but when we get an occasional 10 degrees or less at night time, then the power spike when they start up at dawn can cause damage to the inverter. I'm now on my third inverter but have now hopefully found an installation/maintenance company with sustainable knowledge and performance to mqtch the sustainable energy concept. Looking forward to the high and low power absorption concept becoming commercial reality, although I can't pretend to understand the photosynthesis / quantum physics solar principles.

Comments06/12/2016 #34 Praveen Raj GullepalliIn a thread long ago, I was inspired to think about Form fractals and Flow fractals and had shared some broad thoughts on the same dear Ali Thinking more on the lines of ''similar patterns'' - of thoughts and emotions, reactions and responses (and not exact replicas) we could probably arrive at ''Affinity Fractals'' that Hives represent?06/12/2016 #31 Mohammed Sultan#4 Why don't dare! fractals are not typical for different persons and also for the same person reacting to the same stimuli in different situations .Everything depends on the brain receptors when receiving the signals.Some people who react quickly to an outside stimuli always do this because their brain receptors are rapidly adjusting and fitting with the signals or the fractals.Talents' receptors can also respond to two opposing stimuli at the same time.Not only this, talent are like professional billiard players who can hit different balls and have one ball only in the billiard goal.05/12/2016 #30 Ali Anani#28 Again, the chaotic weather is very difficult to forecast and even for three days. The prediction over the short time span can be reasonably accurate, but not with certainty. Emotions lead to the fractal formation of Elliot waves in the stock market. Again, very short time spans could be reasonably predicted, but not for longer times.05/12/2016 #28 John ValledorAs a huge fan of Chaos theory, I''m always suspect when some claim to 'finally' establish a means towards predictive analysis of any sort, including fractal theory. Even more so in the arena of human emotions. I dare anyone to predict the behavior of despots like the one steering the ship in DPRK. I dare say that regarding the butterfly effect, in North Korea there are a swarm of butterflies driving that insanity. #2405/12/2016 #26 Sara Jacobovici#23 First, I'd like to thank @Ali Anani for bringing my attention to your "comment" @Deb 🐝 Helfrich. I don't mind repeating myself Deb, you are truly a gifted writer, not only in style but in your ability to find the words to describe your ideas, thoughts and feelings in a way that is clear and available to your readers. Your comment is rich with insight and ideas. I will focus on one that came quickly to mind.
One of the things that came to mind is the distinction between patterns and repetition. We can be standing still and still be in motion. (Interesting that the word still can be used to describe movement and time.) Just as we can be standing still and continue to be in motion, we can be stuck in our repetitions. You write, "The pattern becomes self-reinforcing and imperceptible because there no longer is an initiating cause". I would slightly modify that and say it's not that the initiating cause is no longer there, the initiating cause has become part of the pattern, an element of the loop, it is no longer the catalyst of the pattern. So, in a way, we can say that when we are stuck, it is because we are no longer open to receiving information from a new source. Patterns are formed by bringing elements together and taking on a shape of their own. When "input" stops, so does the formation, the pattern gets stuck into a repetitive loop.05/12/2016 #25 Ali Anani#23 @Deb 🐝 Helfrich- I have yet to find a fault line with your thinking. You always amaze me with the quality of your thinking. Your first line testifies to what I am saying "We are pattern-making creatures, but we tend to prefer narratives, rather than finding the more jagged patterns of actual life".
You know that we have been claiming that systems tend to reach a state of balance. Now, we say some systems at least tend to reach their instability to self-reorganize into novel structures. May be that is the value of having fault lines. Stretching and folding is the way for these systems to accommodate large number of crowded molecules into a limited space. Like our lungs they occupy low volume in our bodies, but their surface area is enough to fill a tennis court. This way our lungs work so beautifully. Stretching and folding achieve this low volume, but high surface area requirements.05/12/2016 #24 Ali Anani#22 @John Valledor-- you ask challenging and probing questions. The answer is emotions aren't visible like wind. The way to "see" them is by tracking the outcome of their actions. The mounteer graph and Elliot waves are examples of the tracking results.. They show repeating patterns and with fractal dimensions. Like weather, we can't predict the future too distant in the future with any certainty, but we may make reasonably good predictions for the near future.
As for the scaling up/down of emotions- yes, there have been efforts and one good example is this reference:
https://fractalenlightenment.com/27015/life/the-effect-of-positive-emotions-on-our-health05/12/2016 #23 Deb 🐝 HelfrichWe are pattern-making creatures, but we tend to prefer narratives, rather than finding the more jagged patterns of actual life. Which brings me to the sentence that grabbed me, @Ali Anani: "As large numbers of cells push and shove against each other, mechanical instability leads to buckling and folding" We asked awhile back if fractals are pleasing. And like all good questions leading to insight the answer is yes and no; so it depends. In overcrowding and tight conditions, the fractal patterns aren't going to be lovingly traced repetitive shapes, they are going to emerge because of the fault lines. And that is exactly why emotions are fractal. We get triggered over and over and over again, by say, what we perceive to be lack of respect and by always jumping down everyone's throat, we create that reputation, which means people we haven't met, who have heard about us, treat us warily, which taunts that alertness for lack of respect. The pattern becomes self-reinforcing and imperceptible because there no longer is an initiating cause, that happened decades ago, perhaps in a childhood trauma.04/12/2016 #20 Ali Anani#18 I don't wish to distract the discussion from the theme of the buzz to topics of your own interest. Not only math is flawed, but also all sciences are as well. But this is how we learn. We build on and improve our understanding and sometimes completely sweep away previews ones. It is from the flaws that we learn and progress. We are in a continuous wave of learning.04/12/2016 #18 Max🐝 J. Carter#17 The math is a human creation and therefore must be flawed as the human is flawed and we are putting our faith in a flawed creation and asserting it as fact.
And since it has been proven the speed of light is in fact variable it makes the basis of using Einsteins formula null and void and taints any work based on it.
This fact has simply yet to be accepted.04/12/2016 #17 Ali AnaniI suggest your this hugely interesting reference
There is mathematical evidence behind the fractality of waves, too. The slope of a sine wave is a cosine wave, and versa. That means that no matter how many times you find the derivative of a waveform, it is another waveform; the pattern is fractal because its rate of change is reminiscent of its change; there is meta similarity.
I propose that waves and fractals are one and the same manifestation, the essential form of the universe.
http://hunterbobeck.me/Projects/The-Equivalencies/The-Fractal-Wave-Universe.html04/12/2016 #13 Max🐝 J. Carter#12 I disagree and here's why.
I have studied to much my study applied gave me understanding that gravity waves are not fractal they are fluid in motion totally fluid in motion.
What we interact is the analog the pull we feel is not segmented it is a steady flow. Sound its self is a wave, energy moves in waves. the energy behind everything is purely analog and never segmented but in a constant flow.
The universe moves in a flow not in fragmented steps. Otherwise we would never have the vortex that is how the gyre works on a vortex.
We create these things to be complicated because we want to feel superior in our understanding as if it will give us control of the chaotic flow if we can make it steps instead of the flow it is.
It's our fear of the unknown that leads us to over complicate the simplest of things because no one ever wants to believe anything is that simple or they feel bad for missing what was right in front of them the entire time.
It's also the only to make oneself an authority forcing people into a structure that makes the authority feel better about themselves and life in general. It's human nature to engage in this and even more so in this day and age because of the system of authority that we have in place to reward those who can make themselves the authority on any given thing.
When authority is met with the counter it will use it's authority to demand that which is countering be dismissed and ignored so it's authority can remain in tact. This why scientist who have discovered that the speed of light is variable based on the strongest force of connected gravity are people you have never heard of. I have been studying their work.

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 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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

Thanks for the tag, @🐝 Fatima Williams (: (: (:07/11/2016 #29 Max🐝 J. 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🐝 J. 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?

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.

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.

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.

Comments30/10/2016 #46 Sara Jacobovici#45 Thanks for taking the time to respond @CityVP 🐝 Manjit. I will take the time to read your links and reread your comment. Although my gut instinct is to disagree, this is a great opportunity "in real time" to look at how learning takes place within an environment of diversity of ideas and perspectives. Will get back to you as soon as I can.30/10/2016 #45 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#40 Hi @Sara Jacobovici the way I see it fit the space/time of synchronization is the blindspot we all have within our judgement. 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. At this meeting point we are strangers in the night, but at all levels of society we can be human beings.
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 #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 #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.

Then I'd like to re-discuss what entropy might be."
And I responded:
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.

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 🐝 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! Maybe beBee is actually inspiring other industries, which I would be very happy to learn is the truth.
I find the idea presented to be fascinating. I would actually like to try and follow this research. It would be extremely interesting to see if they actually seek innovation or just continue to build upon what already is, which we all know, pharma needs some innovation; Right @Gerald Hecht?

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.

Comments09/10/2016 #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 #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. Thanks to this 'edge" that brought this super comment from you my dear sister.04/10/2016 #43 Sara Jacobovici#21 #25 It's scary how well you know me @Ali Anani. With @Deb 🐝 Helfrich's comment I thought of the spaces referred to by Mozart, “The music is not in the notes,
but in the silence between.” And Frankl, "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." With @CityVP 🐝 Manjit, I had already replied before I read your comment.04/10/2016 #42 Sara Jacobovici#18 "The irony of our age is that we are becoming more innovative as a human race yet also less adaptive." Great line @CityVP 🐝 Manjit. I agree 100%. Although less adaptive, it is interesting for me to witness what forms the adaptations take on. They seem to reflect the dissociative state and sensory diminished environment which produced them.

I am sure your comment shall attract more comments. Close27/09/2016 #36 Franci🐝Eugenia HoffmanNoting that I am a bit late in appreciating this post, I find both the article and the comments well worth my find. 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.
I agree with @Irene Hackett that the pendulum has swung too wide and I believe it will take time and patience to experience a true sense of balance in our lives.26/09/2016 #32 Deb 🐝 HelfrichWe are contributing to the demise of our own species by setting up organizations that only value the super-human among us.#31 #28 #27 A simple look at the vast unemployment statistics while companies all seek perfect specimens of candidates who have already done exactly what the company uniquely requires. That we have let the very dignified goal of seeking work become devoid of dignity is very telling about why we have so many societal problems.26/09/2016 #28 Sara Jacobovici#26 If the Industrialized Revolution influenced education and healthcare in becoming factories of mass production, then agreed @Irene Hackett, speed is now the determining factor of decision making. As you say, "It may be that the very 'foundation' of some of today's Corporate structures are built to be "short sited". "Time is money" is probably the marriage of these two eras; industry and speed.26/09/2016 #27 Ali Anani#26 This is great thinking and a worthy idea dear @Irene Hackett. Th fastness of change don't give enough time gelly ideas to solidify. Te fears of nw competition, substitute products and technology are among the reasons. However; people need some to familiarize themselves and adopt a new technology. What would happen if a new product is substituted before due time? Are these negative emotions build up?25/09/2016 #24 Deb 🐝 Helfrich#23 Nope, I am completely in a vacuum when it come to the news media. I would rather invest my time in actual communications rather than being force fed doom and gloom. But it is unsurprising to me that corporations are toppling based on their short-sitedness. As you so eloquently point out in this buzz, nothing can simply grow unfethered into the sky without paying firm attention to the growth of the foundation as well.25/09/2016 #23 Ali Anani#22 I wonder if you are hinting in any way to the Soros leaked emails affair @Deb 🐝 Helfrich. I was n't even aware of this issue when I wrote the buzz. But I am fully aware and in agreement with your conclusion- it is time to go back to organic growth and I see no alternative.25/09/2016 #22 Deb 🐝 Helfrich"Can we then "play" with the spacetime of growth? " Wow. We do need to learn how to incorporate a way of diverting primary growth into secondary growth. This is the exact problem we now face with the power of corporations who are locked into a 90 day earnings cycle and the very progress of our world is hijacked by this exceedingly detrimental construct that resembles sustainable, organic growth in almost no way.25/09/2016 #19 Ali Anani#18 I love symbiotic relationship. each party is enriched and strengthened by the other.

In fact I had no choice but to miss you.25/09/2016 #15 Ali Anani#13 Dear @Sara Jacobovici- I am moved without restriction by your two comments. You wrote "You reign supremely in your ability to incorporate the “laws of nature” and apply them wisely to our human needs in growing our businesses". As a firm believer in collective minds and actions, I assure you that I don't reign alone and I find next to me @Sara Jacobovici and other great minds. Your comment simply reads my mind. I shall leak the idea of my next buzz to prove how we don't work in isolation. I have outlined in my mind before reading your valuable comment the main ideas of my next buzz. The title (which may change) is Trees Don't Move", but i spite of this simple facts they developed great strategies to deal with this issue. Free movement such as molecules of gazes may go chaotic. Freezing movement might turn us "motionless", except for localized vibrations. We freeze because of fear, but trees have solutions. Reading your comment adds tremendously to my thinking. Trees don't move, but make moving bodies work for them. Restriction of movement serves many noble purposes. I am thriving and encouraged by your reflections dear Sara and I see the whole spectrum for your layered comments and qualifiers serve in illuminating our minds.25/09/2016 #14 Sara JacoboviciPart 2/2 As someone who refers to herself as an integrator, I welcome your statement, “…the act of integrating other infrastructures and assets.” Another aspect of not working in isolation (whether it’s people or methods) is not compartmentalizing and separating. If we see each tree as a unit separate from the others, we can never appreciate or understand the workings of the forest.
Finally, “Trees don't forget that vertical growth needs support from strong roots and stems.” Trees/nature “knows” what to do and is focused on doing it. It doesn’t get distracted and “forget”. In this way, we need to stay “on course” and focused; not forget what we are trying to achieve.25/09/2016 #13 Sara JacoboviciPart 1/2 @Ali Anani, you have created many layers with many different depths and your light reflects up to the surface from that depth. No doubt about it. You reign supremely in your ability to incorporate the “laws of nature” and apply them wisely to our human needs in growing our businesses. I cannot begin to address all those layers. I will touch briefly on a few that stand out for me at this time.
You write, “…the value of collective movement in growing.” This should be in every mission statement, business plan and vision of all businesses. We wonder why we get stuck after all the movement we invested in, only not to realize that the movement was taking place in isolation.
Things become interesting when you write, “Restriction doesn't mean ugliness…” Agreed. We often give a negative connotation to something “less than”. Whereas restriction, in this case, relates to “what is needed”. In this way, if we look at needs first, then we can properly measure degree of movement. The interesting piece is when you continue and write, “Beauty lies in restricted movement and vibrations.” Here you add a qualifier to your statement above about movement; not just collective, but measured as well. Doing it alone and in a “big” way does not equal success. The interesting part continues when you look at the word “vibrations”. Could the vibrations be a way of assessing the growth; what type of vibrations occurred and how they “moved” across the environment in terms of impact and outcome, quality and quantity?25/09/2016 #12 Ali Anani#11 Thank you dear @debasish majumder for your unlimited support and understanding. Yes, social structure can be supportive or discouraging, the least to say, to the healthy growth of any society. We need to compromise as individuals to gain and build functionally beautiful and working social structures. Only me attitude can be very destructive.

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.

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.

This is the post I like the most.03/01/2017 #70 Ginger A ChristmasLada, I loved your article on so many levels. As a student, I inhaled geometry and embraced its logic, form and theorem. I remember standing before the chalkboard utterly fascinated as I completed a rather complex proof. "Oh," I said ecstatically to my professor, "where will I ever use these in my life? A theorem for milk or a bar of soap?" "Think further, Miss, think further,". I remember being mesmerized that there WAS a "further". As I read your clear and captivating article and all the degrees and angles and beauty of precision and overlap of disciplines washed over me, I was warm inside, thinking of the possibilities in quantum physics (my personal favorite) and the miracle of possibilities depending on the realm. And with a deeply satisfied sigh, I reminded myself to keep your article, the stunning video, the concept of overlap, particularly in applying the geometric perplexities and simplicity to nesting to the discipline of human relationships.
