    #70 @Ian Weinberg and @Sara Jacobovici i enjoy Viktor Frankl's work and discussions but have to say that it is at the interface of my existence and yours where purpose must but found. In establishing ones own existence it can only be tested in the broader sense of the community. Peoples self defeating behaviors must be seen in the light of the community. Lacking this comparison we can not offer therapy as we have nothing to gauge outcomes against.

    Limiting beliefs and subsequent therapies would imply a destination. If freedom is the destination then should this definition be universally understood? The Supreme Court Justice who stated that he knows pornography when he sees it is a great quote but in the end is the exact question of freedom we discuss here.

    In our post modern world with no absolutes, can we truly define the freedoms in assisting others gain their existence? All things are relevant until we become the victim, then we search for absolutes. In this we struggle where the freedom of one begins and and another ends.

    Great thoughts and stirring conversation.

    #69 I agree responsible is the word. The struggle is when we define that responsibility at the over lap of your freedom and mine.

    22/04/2017 #70 Ian Weinberg
    #64 I fully agree with you @Sara Jacobovici Ultimately we're referring to degrees of authenticity reflecting the potential for neuroplastic evolution within the unique subjective narrative. For me the one 'universal' objective to strive for in order to approach authenticity (by shedding the shackles of limiting beliefs) is value contribution: to self - to realize one's full potential of meaning and purpose (see logotherapy) and to the greater environment - making it better than it was before you engaged with it.

    #56 The word that came up in my mind when I was reading the following @Harvey Lloyd, "Are we killing the Goose by taking more from the community than it can produce through our freedoms and uniqueness? " is responsibility. I don't think we can be "authentically free" without being responsible.

    #55 The question of what kind of freedom do we have in the different communities we live or work in and how do we express that freedom, @Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee, reminded me of my first day of orientation of my postgraduate studies. I was about to start the process of learning and training to be a therapist. During the orientation I hear the speaker say, "you're not obligated, as part of your program requirements, to do so but each of you should be in personal therapy work while you are attending your studies." I'll never forget my reaction; after the orientation, I stamped out of the building and paced up and down the sidewalk muttering under my breath, "how can they imply that I should be in personal therapy, it is my choice!" Then, I started to slow down and asked myself, why am I having this reaction? Am I not in the program to be a therapist? Am I not expecting individuals to come to me for therapy? So how can I be the best therapist I can without going through the process of being the client? How can I be the best therapist I can without understanding who I bring to therapy; mine and my future clients? I then turned into student services and made an appointment to begin my therapy work. Long story to say; my program gave the students the freedom to choose.

    #41 Nothing weird about developing our thinking @CityVP ๐Ÿ Manjit, especially since you are a contributor to my developing my thinking. The point following your last point about genes is....and then there is epigenetics. This may sound cliche, but as long as our beliefs remain dynamic and not rigid, then there is no reason not to form them. Individually, we form them and use them to attach/bond to a collective. The collective then, as a living organism, thrives. As long as that is taking place, we're OK. It is only when something influences that collective's ability to thrive that the individual can choose whether to continue to remain attached or to disconnect/dissociate from that attachment.

    I think bacteria has paid heed to the saying that straight trees are cut first and its better to stay crooked. Advocates are meant to prove each and every point they keep forth. You have always challenged us readers to think more and present their opinions. There have been the rarest of rare cases where I have not commented on your buzzes in fact I always did. In my opinion human nature is very complex what is authentic for one person might be disgusting for other. Laws were been made to follow in the interest of entire nation. While there are folks who believe that laws are meant to be broken.

    #38 Thank you for bringing my attention to @Jean L. Serio CPC, CeMA's comment @Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee. I find Jean alway provides much insightful information. I love your term ""The reputation survival", Dr. Ali. I think in this case, it has to come down to sheer common sense. Yes, we have the freedom, but we need to be practically smart about how to use it.

    #30 @Ian Weinberg, you define authentic as "...an individual who has transcended the limiting beliefs and compromised behavior of deprivation and who has the courage to exercise a higher sensitivity and value system..." Professionally and clinically I work from within the perspective of the developmental model and so, couldn't agree more with your definition. I work with individuals who want to let go of those limiting beliefs and had the courage to survive the impact of deprivation and continue to show the courage to grow and transcend those earlier experiences. In order for me to be fully engaged with this process, I need to suspend any judgment as to what the individual chooses as his or her authentic value system. Each process forms its own value system; individually each one is unique. Collectively, it's a different story. We can't give everyone the freedom to be their authentic self if their authentic self is ethically questionable. I have come to grips with the fact that some people, authentically choose to be "bad".
    Sara Jacobovici
    22/04/2017 #63 Sara Jacobovici
    #29 I can't disagree with your well articulated argument @Ian Weinberg. I think it's a matter of perspective. I come into it from the point of view of freedom as being an innate capacity and that is where choice comes from. What takes place in the world is manifestations of behaviors which are ethical or not, and the abuse of power that then influences how we get to express our individual freedom. You write, "...when whole systems (institutions, cities, countries) become corrupted and oppressive, freedom demands become appropriate on condition that they are led by those who are authentically evolved. Otherwise โ€˜reactive freedomโ€™ behavior will re-create the same compromised system." Agreed. Now when you describe individuals who are "authentically evolved" that carries over into your next comment and your definition of authentic.

    #58 @Harvey Lloyd- And I enjoyed your "intended" elaboration of the eloquent comment of @Ian Weinberg
    Harvey Lloyd
    22/04/2017 #58 Harvey Lloyd
    #29 "Intent". Freedom is based on the intent that each is seeking and allowing all to have the freedoms. The free press was established based on tyranny and the ability to expose such acts or conditions. The intent has changed. The free press is now about sensationalizing any point for the sake of viewers or demographics. Ultimately to engage folks at a subconscious emotional level. This intent brings fortune and fame to a few at the expense of others.

    The boomers still carry enough history, pre-internet, that we can discern the differences when we are being emotionally motivated towards a brand. Post internet generations have seen only this form of media.

    Our first amendment "Freedom of speech" leaves us wanting in this new world of faux news and the ultimate dissemination of this news across channels of opinion. We communicate because we want something, community engagement or self perpetuation. Until we begin to look at intent of news then we will be subject to its whims and outcomes.

    Enjoyed your view @Ian Weinberg.

    #56 I greatly appreciate your comment @Harvey Lloyd. Your comment is addressed to @Sara Jacobovici. I shall wait for her response. All I can say now that my last three comments are aligned with your comment. I thank you again for actively participating in these wonderful discussions.

    #27 I believe your comments reinforce my understanding of freedom. The paradox. We wish to retain some uniqueness/freedom within the community yet we find ourselves at odds with the community in developing this uniqueness. Ego, self expression and pride are all oriented towards our unique position within the community. When the community registers this condition, it has the opportunity to reward or punish the uniqueness.

    The ultimate question does my uniqueness/freedom trump the greater whole of the community? Or; Can i find my uniqueness within the communities needs? The latter serves the community as the higher priority.

    The simplicity of this discussion is embodied in the "Golden Goose". The community is the source of our success or failure (Goose). Are we killing the Goose by taking more from the community than it can produce through our freedoms and uniqueness? Media would suggest that this is the case as we look at how people are aligning in patterns against the community as a whole. All with valid unique reasons and supported by the freedoms afforded through law.

    As usual @Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee stirs a debate that helps us discuss the broader implications of freedom in its current definition.

    Having just responded to the comment of @Chris ๐Ÿ Guest Certified Prof.Accountant (SA)- the question that crossed my mind is to what degree beBee allows for authenticity and freedom? This is an important question in view of the many buzzes that were published recently on beBee on authenticity.
    @Javier ๐Ÿ beBee wrote recently a buzz on what w aren't allowed to do o beBee platform. We aren't absolutely free to do what we wish or want to. This is a healthy sign.
    Can we be 100% authentic on beBee? Can we be 100% free on beBee? The degree of engagement on this buzz, for example, shows this isn't the case.I have more to say, but for now I wish to highlight this issue because I believe it is worthy. LinkedIn is moving in the opposite direction by limiting what we can do and shrinking our engagements. BeBee is taking the reverse course, but to a degree. What are the limits to our freedom and authenticity on beBee?

    There is a dialectical argument about the virtues of being... second. Microsoft had an MP3 player before Apple released the iPod. Apple itself had the Newton, which was overtaken by Palm's Pilot (which was subsequently crushed by the iPhone).

    Those first movers are often the first to die (or rendered so crippled that they never recover). So the ideas may be grand, but the executions rush off without knowing their destination... or if anybody's waiting at the end.

    My father was a rock 'n' roll DJ who produced what are arguably the first music videos - 15 years before MTV. He had created what should have been positioned as "American Bandstand" for a new generation but, in 1965, nobody wanted to veer away from Bandstand or the tried-and-true variety formats of "Shindig" and "Hullaballoo." Two years later, he introduced what the industry was almost forced to want (by FCC decree): an extension of rock music to FM radio.

    Yet there, too, he pioneered a format that was, once again, too early. By the end of 12 months, station management introduced an AM-style Top 40/Oldies format, and other stations (and other DJs) took over and profited from the album-oriented-rock approach that my father introduced.

    It's a situation that's conveyed in a joke

    That particular clip from Moneyball is a classic - it speaks to what only a handful of people will do, because the rest will scurry like rats and live in their commercial cages and maybe even have a benevolent employer who provides them a wheel for entertainment, and this is a clip that is way too important to place as a footnote - it definitely puts into stark context the enormity of what you are speaking about here.

    I also think of that Moneyball clip as the difference between the dark extension of the 21st Century and the bright new dawn of the 21st Century. The way things go down in organizations or through institutions or by people who operate from the dinosaur perspective that especially made such carnage of the 20th Century - and is at risk of repeating that carnage in our century now.

    I may have spent four decades in the prior century, but I am coming up-two decades in our century. If transformation continues to represent this circumstance, then it means I will have lived six decades under that circumstance - but if the map of life has actually changed, the way we look at things has subtly transformed, then you and I will become the luckiest people in the history of civilization - because we will be among the first walking in this new light, this transition that has begun.

    When change is the constant, adapting and continuously evolving organizations will not need to hire the dinosaurs (whether they are young or old). That we lived while dinosaurs existed is just a fact of time but it is not the way things need to be and eventually will not be.

    #63 Thank you @ CityVP Manjit for bringing me here and for the kind mention and share of my todays buzz on Subtlety Consciousness Although it has yet to receive some views if it has a purpose as to why I must have created it it certainly it will fulfill it in time! Like through your kind share of it here for instance ๐Ÿ˜Š

    @ Ali Anani thank you for inviting me here in your very purposeful buzz as well as for these amazing writers who have shared their heartprints of wisdom and goodwill.It will certainly be a treat to read their comments as much as this 'successful buzz' ! It is certainly a joy to read your insights here.
    Well you have essentially captured the manyessential elements towards emergence...And I do beleve that the depth of purpose is one of the paths leading to successful emergence .And success is an interesting journey and not a destination . Success is truly sensed when we find the purpose and in working towards it passionately.
    The more you sense the bigger picture ... you lovingly loose yourself in something that is bigger than yourself... the greater your energy and the closer you are to where you want to be ..
    Success in such an evolving emergence is within each of us ... waiting for us to make a move towards it.
    And perhaps if you find time , you would like to read two of my poems that I sense an interconnect here .One on the Subtlety of Consciousness. and then Emergence. Would be happy to read your reflections to it.

    #58 The world revolves and all life including human life evolves. It is not too challenging a word if we realize that there are parts of our DNA that have no apparent function, they are dormant and doing nothing - and here something is transmitted or transformed and there is new code operating within us.

    What is frightening about tech and synthetic biology is how it is tampering with our inner code and trying to splice into our human code. No wonder some technologists fear that we are creating the end of our own species as we tamper with life.

    Accelerated change at the individual level has allowed us to do something here that would have required much time in days of letters - which is deposit thought that is immediate and be able to draw in thoughts at a rate that human beings have never done before - and that must surely be triggering something in the dormant parts of our DNA - because our mind and body is now responding to something new, in ways I assume our DNA is already encoded to expect.

    Take @Savvy Raj latest buzz "Subtlety of Consciousness" https://www.bebee.com/producer/@savvy-raj/subtlety-of-consciousness the way it is read is how we have evolved to read it or where our code is in terms of maturity and how we will evolve once new inputs permeate us. The impact of evolution here is personal, it is what evolves within us - and that is why I think revolutions have limited impact and often return us back to what we originally revolted from.

    #20 I am humbled that you would so kindly share and reference my buzz @Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee.

    I absolutely love your conclusion here, "Peace in the heart starts by loving for others what you love for yourself." This implies service to others, which I believe is a gateway to living a life of gratitude. May we sow gratitude, and reap the greatest of all gifts.

    I am reminded of a quote,

    โ€œGratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.โ€ ~ Melody Beattie

    #53 "Evolve". This is a very challenging word as it implies the mass change to a society in a direction. Today it would appear that we can reach a state of evolution of serving others only after we have ventured past our own right of passage. This right of passage is defined by our narrative of home, community and education. The real conundrum is when we realize that everyone is seeking this right of passage. The friction begins.

    Your comments ring with truth. Our struggle to establish security within our existence comes at a cost, when we take our own we may be removing someone else's.

    This would establish that each individual would need to evolve into a greater set of "rules" as @Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee has presented here. This is what the 60's were all about, breaking free of these rules. Can we put the cat back in the bag?

    This discussion, as with all of Dr. Ali's, are intriguing and deserve some time in the sun. Your thoughts are always illuminating.

    #53 This is a treasure of a comment dear @CityVP ๐Ÿ Manjit. I think this comment reinforces the great comments here by @Harvey Lloyd. Every line of this comment is a wisdom on its own.
    I commented an hour ago on a buzz bt our friend @David B. Grinberg in which he highlighted the unfortunate practices of nations spending so much on wars, but so little on healthcare. Instead of bringing brains together we are separating them, if not killing them. This is accordance with your writing Manjit " Once we are at this point of evolution, our humanity beings to form with a new map and new means of translation and peace emerges from that. If war emerges from that, we are still using the old map and yet calling ourselves 21st century".
    Your comment truly reflects your writing "What you are exploring here is at the forefront of human evolution in the full meaning of what evolve means". I can easily replace you with Manjit and this is the value of this splendid comment.
    CityVP ๐Ÿ Manjit
    02/04/2017 #53 CityVP ๐Ÿ Manjit
    What you are exploring here is at the forefront of human evolution in the full meaning of what evolve means. This is the domain of the few and not the many because the language of buy-sell see this thinking as a cost rather than a value. The traditional buy and sell is a traditional market and trade routes and tribal culture are a part of that deep history.

    I don't assume the word emergence as a form of positive thinking, after all emergence is rooted in the word "emergency". When we move to a more evolved state, we stop relating emergency to view it as a danger, but start seeing emergency as in "emerge". Once we are at this point of evolution, our humanity beings to form with a new map and new means of translation and peace emerges from that. If war emerges from that, we are still using the old map and yet calling ourselves 21st century.

    Now we are beginning to see new ways of exchanging value but in systems that value the traditional ways. It is ancient and historical legacy that fuels the modern marketplace and not evolution of our core humanity. As we evolve in our collective humanity, this value will be seen by us as highly reasoned and the way things are but what is so obvious and good for the future of humanity. This is not what a vast percentage of the world has either learned to see or are still not being taught how to see.

    We will eventually get there, but just because we have open forms of networks, does not mean that networks are yet evolved.

We learn as we act.

    #47 "We cant know the future but we can enter the future with anchored values and a flexible style of executing the present". This is my gem of the day. Somehow you remind me of my experience of insulation materials. The components are the same; the application by spraying, moulding and mixing of ingredients from two containers vary with the construction being insulated, wind (no to blow off sprayed materials), heat, wind speed are variables and dictate what insulation application to employ. Yes, we may have fixed and anchoring values , but their application may differ.
    One idea that pops up what id the anchor is corroded? Oh, I feel burning charcoal falling on my head.
    Harvey Lloyd
    02/04/2017 #47 Harvey Lloyd
    #46 An anchor is designed to be inflexible and to stay rigid. The application of the anchor can be flexible or semi-flexible. Values are something that anchor our patterns of behavior in flexible situations. I have seen values that were good but inflexible in application. This is when we get that feeling of tyranny in our group.

    We cant know the future but we can enter the future with anchored values and a flexible style of executing the present.

    #45 It was your comment @Harvey Lloyd that was the spark for me to write this buzz. So, as greatly as I appreciate your writing "One of the greatest compliments one could receive is, another can quote what you would do or say in a given situation. @Ali Anani this one swung for the fences and i believe you produced a home run" You share the pride as well.
    I am moved by your insight of having positive and negative anchors. Your writing " drift. This presents us with two styles of anchors. One that clearly attaches us to a set of values and doesn't change; Another that allows the drift of these values so we may meet the needs of the moment" is hair-raising. It is fixed rules of genuine advantage that we may anchor positively. Sometimes, we tend to let the values (anchors( drift for one reason or the other. Some people would rather be killed and not compromise on them. We have many examples. May be the idea of semi-fixed enter into play. Like semi-flexible materials. I need to think more on this one. You stretch my mind again with your challenging ideas and nothing pleases probably more than finding myself in tis situation. Here I miss the feedback of our friend @Sara Jacobovici. I long for her input.

    "They are the anchors to our development and the emergence of new habits, solid characters and opening of new horizons." "Anchors" is a boring and challenging word in a fast pace society where the need of the moment is stronger than our fundamental "purpose".

    I caught a post here on a new technology that would help safe large ships that have lost power. Basically it applied a Sea Anchor, an anchor that is a underwater sail, that keeps the bow of the boat into the wind and slows the drift. This presents us with two styles of anchors. One that clearly attaches us to a set of values and doesn't change; Another that allows the drift of these values so we may meet the needs of the moment. Drifting values, after a few cycles, catches up to us, as the folks in our circles begin to see the values are customized at each setting. This raises questions from the different members of our social group concerning our real motives.

    Anchored values can also offer positive or negative results as your post indicates. Good anchored values offer us a fresh start with each situation that our motives can not be explained as service to others. Our motives may not be liked but non the less will be accepted as they are consistent, focused on the success of others and represent a path that all can participate.

    One of the greatest compliments one could receive is, another can quote what you would do or say in a given situation. @Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee this one swung for the fences and i believe you produced a home run.

    @Ian Weinberg you also mention the work of David Bohm, one of the many people I deeply respect. The embodied experience of sitting in a circle and dialoguing with a group of people taps into our whole intelligence beyond words and thoughts. It is a visceral experience, and the many pauses built into the dialogue process give the space for creative ideas to emerge. I wish their were more people willing to have deep conversations in this kind of space.

    2) Whilst my generation, my brother and sister and me were not physically violent, we had all internalised violence against ourselves in our thoughts and beliefs of ourselves to not be worthy enough. I now have a strong sense of inner security that has nothing to do with reward and gratification or objects and I have embraced a greater context even when I was very young. I had a sense that my father's pain had to do with something that he did not understand so I had incredible compassion and love for him. My sons were not subjected to physical violence, but they did grow up and picked up my lack of self worth. Fortunately, my commitment to deep learning meant, I brought my sons up to reflective, to have conversations about beliefs, about behaviours and defensive routines. attended family therapy. they both have the capacity for deep pause and reflection and transformation. So in my lifetime, I have seen 4 generations transcend the limitation from early environments where more healthy nurturing was needed. I have also been able to guide my coaching clients to become aware of their limitations and self-heal. None of this has anything to do with AI. I apply methods to access intelligence from my whole bodied intelligence. I am left with great optimism for the future.

    Another intriguing post @Ian Weinberg I agree, "we individually control very little of our environments and indeed, our lives. Most of our choices are determined by our unique individual history, our nature-nurture heritage." - yes, and yet, I have been dedicated to overcoming the limitations from my childhood. And help others to do so.
    "The challenge for each one of us is to be able to transcend this common, collective homogenate of functioning mediocrity as well as our personal heritage constraints (limiting beliefs) and contribute our unique co-creativeness." - I can share that in my family of origin there was a history of domestic violence. Well, I only know about 4 generations. My grandfather fought in WW1 and was in an era when women were subservient and "men" often relieved their pain by being angry with their wives. My father, when he was young and controlled by his father, mirrored this behaviour, but, only when he had drunk too much alcohol. He drank too much alcohol as he was in WW2 and came back with trauma which he did not know how to heal. When his father died, my father stopped drinking and stopped being violent. I had conversations about this with him. In my generation, I was dedicated to healing my trauma from my early childhood. I did to some extent early on in life, but then as you said in a previous post, at about 40 there can be a collapse. So, in mid-life I suffered a set back when I was in a relationship with a controlling partner who demeaned and repressed me psychologically, emotionally and financially. Fortunately, I did much emotional, energetic, psychological healing and became strong enough to move away from the narcissist and misogynist. TBC in next post.

    #20 Interesting perspective @CityVP ๐Ÿ Manjit I would propose an expanding consciousness growing through the expansion of each individual consciousness. And so each unique one of us, connected in space-time as well as in the energy equivalence thereof, have a heritage which determines our comfort zone and from where we will co-create. The obvious consequence is that we can never define with certainty what it's all about because through Heisenberg's Uncertainty and continual collapsing of Shrodiger's Wave, we are continually changing reality! Unless of course this was all factored into the source files ....

    #19 Ian, the interesting choice of picture accompanies a very elegant title. "A Stillness in the Eye of Eternity" raises what you write to the poetic level and I think it is very important for people who think at abstract levels to have a poetic rather than prosaic expression.

    After all the fundamental nature of mathematics is beauty and in mathematics we have the language that gets closer to comprehending to a humble degree, the actual cosmos. The picture of the cosmic eye shown in the buzz actually reminds me of our human limitation, which is an inbuilt one that provides us an anchor against uncertainty and accompanied us when we were born and that is the desire to create meaning and patterns, which in turn relieves us of the anxiety from the unknown.

    Yet the cosmos will always in its unlimited vastness absolutely remain a place of the unknown, so I pay attention to how we anthropomorphize the cosmos or the larger than life dimensions of our comparative existence. Your words do describe our fundamental reality that we came from cosmos and not a cosmos made by us.

    In this humility exists a massive liberation of our being for we are then not attached to mortality and discover cosmos is not mortal either - that the big bang may well be a never ending dance of dimensions and one day we will transmit as energy into that, which brings us to that which we can be certain, that we are made up of star dust, not just ashes to ashes, dust to dust.

    A wonderful buzz, everything written here represents a kindred spirit. The interesting thing about this way of seeing is that once we see things this way, we never go back to the way we used to see these things. It requires patience and level-setting to recognize that this way of being and seeing is the lesser road traveled, but the chief road to a more practically wise future.

    Reflection + Reasoning ( Emotional prompts) = Clarify + Awareness

    I'm going to keep this formula very safe and use it every single time I experience an emotion. We search for peace / calmness in materialistic things. Reward, success, money etc. The formula above not only creates calmness but to pause regularly and clear the toxic thoughts from our mind, enhance awareness, become more sensitive, gain clarity. I love the addition of gratitude which it very important fine-tune our subjective world view. Thank you @Ian Weinberg

    #13 okay so I know I'm being the pessimist today :-), but unfortunately history has taught us that critical mass is reached only after many suffer. WWI, WWII. Now we are capable of truly mass destruction and so I must ask; who would survive WWIII. Whenever I get into the negative frame of mind I think of my grandfather and his advice to my brother: Take that negative cable off your car battery and try to start your car...It takes the positive and negative viewpoints to fully appreciate all the implications.

    Well said Ian. I have been questioning myself of late about the US political environment in which I currently exist. As a single mother for 27 years my core that been about controlling the environment so as to create an environment of creativity, thought, growth and yet predictability (as best I could) for my daughter. For most parents we realize; these are difficult to accomplish (it takes a 'similar' village). But that need to 'control' becomes habitual so I've asked myself; are my frustrations and yes, even anger at our current 'state of the union' a result to my conditioning myself to 'control' in an environment where I have no control? A brilliant professor whose Resolving Environmental Conflict class I was fortunate enough to attend spoke often of the subjectivity of dealing with conflict. Everyone comes to the table with set beliefs and strong emotional investment in approaching environmental issues; (I appreciated your mentioning environmental science) and it was our duty to be sensitive to all views, the maintain calm when others could not be objective. Where I can achieve that calm at this time in history, to release the need to control, is an ongoing battle. The fear of loss in that situation has far reaching consequences; a butterfly, to a tornado; to a tsunami that threatens to drown humanity as it grows and spreads fear and chaos across the planet and throughout humanity.

    the photograph as header is unique and having extremely relevance with your article, which reflects the universe we dwell and equally gives clarity about how insignificant we are. human eye, cornea contains no blood vessels and it is wonder to me how it derives its energy to remain so vibrant for enabling our vision! the photograph contains too the unique existence of quasar, pulsar and all elements of wonder to us and we wonder how it impacts us. but, it is true, we human only possess an analytical mind as well form a society of our own, unlike universe. but, the continuous changes and various element and complex culture in the universe how far effect our society as well our faculty, is also a pertinent issue to ponder. however, great post sir @Ian Weinberg! enjoyed profusely. thank you very much for the share sir.

    You have predictably created both the complexity of existence and the ability to execute free will in choosing our path. Being an entrepreneur you learn the control issues very quickly, you have none. You have influence only. Grit can carry you but so far. The challenge is to transcend into interdependence, where control is left behind.

    The area of our "narrative" is what fascinates me the most. Having rode across country several times on two wheels the most exciting part was meeting the different people and their "influence". There is one destination we all seek, but many paths. The question looms large as to whether the path is shared or not.

    On these journeys there always seemed to be a common thread. Those who chased money (Power, social standing, etc..) and those who chased joy. Oddly the ones who had joy had money and didn't care. The opposite was true for the money chasers, even if they had enough it wasn't. It was the path to joy i found so fascinating.

    I am still convinced that we require higher authority to break our own cycles of discontent. It is difficult to break from the circular arguments of our own limiting beliefs if we cant call upon a stable and understanding higher authority.

    Great read and thought provoking.

    I think the winner would be the one who has the flexibility and adaptability towards change and that person should embrace it immediately. People are often attached to their habits where even an iota of change seems an impossible task for them. Change is constant as been said correctly. As we age we change from the core but it is upon us to maintain our physical and mental beings properly.

    I couldn't resist myself to read and comment on this buzz because I have seen unknown changes in me as I was hit by the circumstances which demanded and snarled for change. I am about to publish a buzz on the topic of senses and I hope it would be liked by everyone as @Sara Jacobovici has encouraged me to pen one.

    #13 #12 My hive colour for paradox, complexity, creativity, innovation and emergence is violet - a metaphor for ultra violet. Feedback itself is not a paradox but a leadership trait, so this hive colour is blue, and if anything you have reminded me that I have been skipping my own system here ! Why violet is important to me is because the power and ability of abstraction is not something everyone learns to see - at the level of abstraction we are no longer watching football but thinking how we change it.

    Now when it comes to scientific method and logic and reasoning, my colour for that is magenta (the magenta mind I like the sound of that), which is now separate from culture (yellow like sun). Of course just basic communication skills are GRAY, but it is gray which is at the foundation of learning.

    It is the two end-point colours of the spectrum which are the road less traveled - the Infra-Red of entrepreneurial mindset, financial mind and mathematical thinking and of course the Ultra-Violet. It is however ultra-violet which is my starting point for thinking about creative thinking and magenta my starting point for thinking about critical thinking. Where RED features is as an economics of predictability which is a totally different beast to the economics of possibility. Ironically predictability is red but possibility is violet - but that is the paradox for me here (without diminishing my other colour hives) -

    1. Possibility found through predictability [RED]
    2. Predictability found through possibility [VIOLET]

I am asking myself now responding to your feedback "A mi comfortable"? May be not as much as I wanted. Why/ Because what if I misunderstood your comment? What if my response is shallow?

    The chief paradox I am dealing with now is realizing that at the mass scale people are generally uncomfortable with feedback, even good feedback - there is something in the human condition which switches us into certainty mode.

    In tribal settings like a football match, the irony is that the masses buy a soccer ticket for the uncertainty. It is like we give ourselves permission to suffer for our team but go back to form as soon as we have left the stadium. We bite our nails, time stops still when our team is winning and there are just minutes left, whereas the uncertainty of the supporter whose team is losing speeds up their perception of time, they notice every delay in the game, shout invective if the opposing team appears to be time wasting.

    I was fascinated by the mechanics of the recent match between Barcelona and PSG where the temperature of the ground was elevated to fever pitch by the last few minutes of the game where Barcelona clawed back 3 goals to win 6-1 and thus over-turn a 0-4 deficit from the first leg. It was the look on the PSG players which did freeze as the crowd started to heat up collectively with what were essentially the Barcelona tribe clasping hands, praying for the miracle and confused PSG fans who must have sensed that something was unravelling in a weird way - all of this under awesome creation of uncertainty, that the fans paid for. The Barcelona fans went into delirium when in the 5th minute of injury time their team scored the winning goal - and the PSG fans waited for the team to arrive back home and the heat generated by the game led some supporters to damage the players cars.

    Yet a simple weather report will see the same people paradoxically run for safety - stockpiling against the threat of bad weather disrupting their life - even though it is perfectly sunny outside and they have a nagging sense that the weather people can get prediction wrong.

    #7 Great thoughts dear @Sara Jacobovici. I appreciate your differences with me. Yes, local supporters can be of help. Yet; I have watched matches in which the supporters got so furious with the performance of their team and chanted for the opponent. What is assumed to be an asset turned into a liability. Despairing audience may turn their team into a bunch of runners.
    As for the prediction Almanac- it is an astonishing example and I wonder if predictability gets better, same or less. It is a striking example of trying to predict the future.
    In trying to predict, sometimes we increase unpredictability. Is the a behavior of complex systems? I need to think more.

    Your buzzes push at my mind to expand and make connections. Thank you @Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee. You write: "But football is a game and so is life." It fascinates me how we look to sports and games to understand ourselves and our world. Brilliant economists design games and Einstein was quoted as saying, "God does not play dice with the universe." Now that we can simulate the image of 2 black holes (before they merge), it looks like "bowling" may be the game of the universe. https://www.ligo.caltech.edu/LA/image/ligo20160211d

    You write very powerfully: "We prison ourselves in determinism." Although your statement reminds me of what can happen when we take our need to predict to its negative side of the spectrum, it also reminded me of this: "The original Farmer's Almanac founded in 1792, Old Farmer's Almanac is a reference book that contains weather forecasts, tide tables, planting charts, astronomical data, recipes, and articles on a number of topics, including gardening, sports, astronomy, and farming. The Almanac also features anecdotes and a section that predicts trends in fashion, food, home dรฉcor, technology, and living for the coming year. Released the first Tuesday in the September that precedes the year printed on its cover, The Old Farmer's Almanac has been published continuously since 1792, making it the oldest continuously published periodical in North America."

    And finally, you write: "The closed clusters of supporters can't change the result of the match." As a sports fan with a firm belief in hometown advantage, I beg to differ with you ;-) Thanks for another provocative post Dr. Ali.

    Oftentimes, we cast off realities and carry on with our own ways; we sometimes take predictions to heart and come up with our own shuddering assumptions and stay behind with still hopes. Presumably, betwixt sheer conjectures and true happenings we miss matters of priorities with our vain miscalculations.
    Harvey Lloyd
    12/03/2017 #1 Harvey Lloyd
    Two questions or one concept comes to mind in reading your post this morning. Do i make my environment; Or am i a part of a much larger environment whereby i have to learn to be successful within?

    How you answer the question determines your reliance of predictions. I have always thought that the latter was the question we needed to affirm. By assuming this answer we realize that we are all adrift inside a ever changing environment where we all experience the unpredictability together.

    I like predictions weather and others. But reliance on any prediction is Russian roulette. Our ability to understand the biases in predictions gives us the foresight to read the unfolding events into our own evolving predictions.

    Our weather here has become a off Broadway production. They seem to sell you the weather with great actors. Its great for the milk and egg industry locally. One mention of snow and the local groceries have a field day of sales.

    I am not much of a person for affirmations but there is an intelligent form of serendipity that I did find compelling and interesting, and this was when I read this piece from @Ari Kopoulos which he entitled "Finding your 'Aha'โ€‹ moment through Tactical Serendipity". At first I thought the idea of "tactical serendipity" was an oxymoron, but the more I read of Ari's thinking, the more I saw the genius in the paragraphs that he had put forth. His buzz is here :

    Tactical Serendipity by Ari Kopoulos
    Finding your 'Aha'โ€‹ moment through Tactical Serendipity

    As an affirmation words can simply become commodity and therefore a numbers game involving recency and frequency, but as tactical serendipity there is transition point between intuition and hidden/latent talent - and this is in the providence of a few, and thus I think you will very much enjoy Ari's buzz.

    The idea of u-lab itself has been used by other groups which I find even more fascinating and one of them is in Spain !!!

    One of them is the ULAB Spain Movement

    The other is MIT related and features the U-Theory concept of Otto Scharmer

    Ulab.es is a very well branded and tight concept and it can teach me new things about Alicante in the process,

    but I am also open to the world and its ideas where as ulab.es is convergent, the other two ulab examples are divergent and even more applicable to my own learning journey. Close

    Manjit, Optologics is categorization metrics. We need to categorize or generalize to understand the bigger picture. My idea is to find standard categories for the production and use of knowledge that we can all agree on. Then we can see knowledge scientifically rather than phenomenologically. #5

    #2 Yes, Walter is an interesting mind with unique perspectives and he can abstract and conceptualize but at the most basic level he engages in thinking, naturally I appreciate a mind like that.

    None of this for me is about enjoyment, it is about appreciation. What Walter does is in some ways parallel with what I do but Walter has his own unique DNA - he deals much more deeply with the ontological and explores infinitely more with physics.

    I noticed Walter when he checked my profile today, and then of course Fatima you tagged me. What is important for me about Walter Smith is to recognize Walter Smith as Walter Smith and not on the basis of similarities.

    We learn most from people who are different from us - and even if I might use the word compass and Walter uses compass or I may use spectrum and Walter may use the term, appreciation does not come through categorization but observation. I certainly do appreciate Walter Smith for being Walter Smith. We are both an N of 1 and what matters is the N of 7 Billion and the appreciation in that.

    #51 (continuation to #49) ... or allow something to skip thro' under the eyes at point blank... Pure extracted Sugar solution whether cane sugar or corn sugar mix with water "hydrocarbons >> glucose and fructose" breaks up and disintegrates easily by giving the sweetness into water (the concentration reduces as well as the sweetness). Similarly artificial sugar sweetener's whether it's sucralose, aspartame or saccharin carry high concentration factors.. But by natural some fruits are sour or not edible do carry sugar, also bee's gather nectar from variety of flowers also the Datura fruit, nectar extracted from flowers of (Momordica charantia) bitter gourd are included.. The involvement of extractions within human body results leading to hypo or hyper glycaemia related to sugar. Nectar been collected by bees from flowers of Datura & Bitter melon but syrups from these fruits has different properties and serves not same or similarity, carries other purpose individually. It's inhumane nature " a phenomenon due to reasons" make them to overlook and under or over estimate the caliber.

    #50 @TausifMundrawala at times leaders who carry positive enactment mingle, inspire, motivate and work along with their team members and sometimes directly or indirectly the team forces to be controlled with asserting authority due to a hidden spoiler, mischief, arrogant whose acts (either for fun or specific reason) make the team to face hard time. I will share an instance: Once due to an emergency breakdown required some spare parts, for reason I decided to get them, on way to city from site met with an accident (vehicle was new and in routine use on site), after necessary's done later after three days I was inspecting upgrades required at a place. Lunch was ordered for the team (skilled & semi-skilled) as well as for me and driver with us Prince Tagafi joined along. After casual discussion with all, while signing the document for Bill of claims said "it was matter of your life, use the assertive authority let me know who's behind the accident. To pardon or not it's up to you. Before you ask to proceed the vehicle repair, handover this this letter to head at police station collect demand note traffic controller and give to workshop". I knew there was someone for the cause of accident. Prince support came as master key. Within short time it was unlocked. Two were deported, they were pardoned. As one had younger brothers and sisters. The other had old parents, spouse and two infants. This was 19years before while I was in Saudi Arabia.

    #53 @Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee sir after my comment, awaited for someone to pick the point "mixture of oxy-hydrogenated carbons which can be natural or artificial or blend of both have reasons for the extraction process. But it's inhumane to overlook or allow something to skip thro' under the eyes". Sugar directly or indirectly has a controlling part in vision. Sugar whether "Natural or Artificial or Blend of both' has effects on human body which has to be supplied as per "Demand Value" in management it's more of like "Voice of Reason". The requirement or the adequate dose when known or ruled out then the response is effective. Thanks @Donald ๐Ÿ Grandy you pointed on one of the key point.. it's not just increase but also decrease in levels affects and effects response to dis-function of organs.

    As always @Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee your posts are very creative and wonderfully written. I would like to add to your sugar analogy the management tool Insulin. As we are aware, an increase in sugar signals triggers your pancreas to produce the amount of insulin you need to manage the level of sugar in your blood. Perhaps we could introduce Insulin as the Team Leader "voice of reason" so when sugar levels become critical, Insulin comes to the rescue. As sugar levels occasionally spike quickly due to poor eating habits (toxic team members) or a poorly functioning pancreas (toxic team leader) there are checks and balances to keep the hive balanced. Thanks for sharing your post.

    Quote Investigator thinks it has identified the original source to a 1957 Harpers Magazine article

    Apart from the aside that this is the decade of fake news, alternative facts and personal branding, getting back to the actual quote at hand and the matter of change, and my baseline begins with the reality is change and uncertainty are the constants, and the search for certainty is the ever-present motivation that preoccupies HR departments to hire change consultants. I personally prefer to call myself an oxymoron consultant.

    Alternatively our bodies were built for certainty and unleash all sorts of chemical agents when we are stressed and our minds seek the certainty of patterns, which leads to all sorts of fallacies and bias and such stuff, but we do have one area of our brain that is the bridge between dealing with uncertainty and our biological alarm clock of certainty (no not fight or flight) but our prefrontal cortex. That is the part of our brain that can advise the signals from the rest of our brain that we do what Douglas N. Adams offered we can do, which is

    Thank you @Neil Hughes for sharing an insightful article.The problem with tech innovation is that it must be looked at from the users point of view.But,when companies think that they know better than the users and that their creativity and imagination should go further than people expectation or they have to be first in the market with something new,at this moment,they should expect resistance to their new innovation even though it's desirable.Even the early adopter will only buy on price cuts and continuous added features.

    Innovative thinking depends on insuring a healthy level of personal and organisational balance Managers who approach new ideas and break their org routine with sharpened inquisitiveness that breaks the traditional patterns of their brains should insure a healthy balance with those managers who misinterpret the reality of their markets.They often don't realize that their move which is based on underestimating their markets can lead to misguiding the innovation process.

    Many disruptive innovations are faced with buyers resistance for reasons going beyond the creativity of R&D and financial capabilities.Overcoming these barriers requires a savvy leader who can mobilize different resources to keep the fit and balance between the imagination of their managers and the reality of the markets.Innovations that upset the routine and the buyers daily habit require a long functional and psychological process before customers accept them.

    #3 Yes Laurent but over a fundamentally very long period of time - even in our cases, perhaps a lifetime. We are prepared by media to move the second but only if we are moved by media - but if we are masters of that media then we have an entire life to be witness to brighter transformational consequences. If we do not then everything is going to feel like chaos and we drown in the sweat of our own uncertainty. The Eagles had a couple of tracks for it "Desperado" and "Take it Easy" - somewhere between these two contraints we can or at least I can, transform uncertainty into intelligence.

    #1 Dear Laurent if we carry small minds and we require imaginations bigger than it can process, then naturally we become slave to the image. Yet if we have big minds and bigger vision, then the imaginations or virtual reality we walk into extend that which we already are - and then that life becomes an imagination capable of using new technologies, to take us further into the 21st Century.

    I await those wonders because my mind can accommodate and make use of this extension - but if my mind simply needs an external extension that makes up for a lacking or dull mind - then that is my problem with superficial personal brands and my aversion to 20th Century minds using technologies to extend their 20th Century mindsets.

    I want to be 21st Century and trust my mind is big enough and then I can observe my grandchildren to create the renaissance we and all our ancestors merely idealized but they my grand-children will make real and in so doing will look at us as the last generation of the dark ages emerging from the cave. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1RWOpQXTltA

    It is important to realize that the way we have transformed over thousands of years is slow and technological progress is exceedingly fast. If we need warnings about this shift then we have Marshall McLuhan - but I embrace the challenge of it, even if in the hands of smaller minds there will be problems with it - the key is the transformation in our system of education & mindset.

    The biggest takeaway for me in this survey is the positive view of Generation Z which is effectively the children of millennials and therefore my grand-children.

    We also need to move away from talk of Gen Z, Gen Y, Gen X. Boomer etc because these are marketing classifications in a world that millennials clearly want to see as being more human.

    I have said many times that the 60's counter-culture is becoming a chapter in the history books as boomers die off.

    By having generational labels we create difference, whereas I celebrate diversity, for we can be whatever label we choose to be. I have the right not to be branded by a label, and yet human limitation is that we use labels to describe people.

    I cannot call older people dinosaurs, for it is their thinking which is old, and instead of worrying about who does not get the 21st Century, the question is, does this Deliotte report serve to provide me clues to what it means to adapt to the innovations of the 21st Century?

    I will use it as a compass while questioning its assumptions - so the report is informative but it is not gospel. I seek an open mind in a private space, so that my thoughts are my thoughts but my life evolves into the kind of growth our century needs. May we do this in parallel..

    Serendipity can cause a healthful pleasures and absorb some of our difficult times,but one can't always count on it all the time.People who count on serendipity of treating diseases sea the side effect of the medicine as beneficial,this's why many pharma insist on including detailed side effects of their medicine ,like antibiotics .Some medical products although targeted to cure particular diseases ,by chance or later by research,they discover that the medicine can be used as an alternative therapy alone or associated to another therapy to treat a different disease.The story of the research on Viagra is a well known example of serendipity which absorbed the difficult times of the producer, filled them with healthful pleasures and their pockets with $ billions.By the way,the product concept testing was initially targeted to cure patients who suffer from respiratory problems!!!

    #3 Gert [ @Gert Scholtz ] Serendipity? I write "Falling into Things" today -

    You comment on my post at LinkedIn. 4 hours ago you commented on Ari's blog. As you commented on his blog, Ari's post pops up on my notifications. Is this serendipity? This is a form of serendipity which is actually synchronicity.

    Now let me demonstrate actual serendipity. Ari declares 28th Jan 2017 Serendipity Day and links it to Sir Horatio Horace Walpole and the date 28th Jan 1754. Yet there is an actual Serendipity Day that was created by M.Kay which is 18th August. I don't know why she chose 18th Aug when 28th Jan would be a far more fitting day - but the most likely explanation is that she was defining the day for her own brand. Along comes Ari and at first I thought he had the date wrong - but Ari got the date right, what was random was the author who chose 18th Aug. Now was M.Kay's actions calculated or serendipitous?

    This buzz is serendipitous for me not because I wrote "Falling Into Things" LinkedIn but I found another example of how personal brand co-opts discoveries as intellectual property, though the actual history is forgotten, until that is a guy like Ari researches it.

    So synchronicity was in play today because of the sequence of parallel events but so was serendipity - I inadvertently found more evidence that has had me focused on the superficiality of M.Kay declaring a "Serendipity Day" on Aug 18th without knowing when serendipity actually came into being and this was due to economic necessities of personal brand driven behaviour. Go figure.

    I read somewhere that what we perceive as time (past, present and future) are layers that is happening at the same moment. Our mind splits them , because belief (on time) and because our memory "erases/turn off" when we go to sleep and come back on when we wake up, so we think "one day passed", if that is so (everything is happening a big now) and indeed there is not past, present or future, you and your father actually never separated or will separate. Think of time on a vertical column term not a horizontally flat line. @Lisa ๐Ÿ Gallagher

    #21 I'm glad to know someone else views the world/universe on a much broader level too. I just felt a sense of calm after reading, "but you are really never separated or constrain by time/location." Maybe that's why some of us do sense when a loved one that left our physical plane is near. Ha, I laughed when I read your comment about being a fortune teller. A lot of police forces use psychics and have had luck in finding the person at times. Many use them and never advertise that they do.

    nice experience Lisa, yes, vividly dreams are great isn't it? I had a few myself (totally conscious "dreams" for lack of a better definition) The parallel realities are a sure thing. Your dad is one and you are temporary in another but never really separated or constrain by time / location (how can it be if everything is energy) , now people reading this , will think I do "fortune telling" or tarot for a living :) @Lisa ๐Ÿ Gallagher #20

    #18 I've often pondered the idea of the third eye too @Flavio ๐Ÿ‡ฏ๐Ÿ‡ต Souza ๐Ÿ. Have you ever had a dream and woke feeling as though it wasn't a dream but you were in another reality? Ok, people are going to think I'm weird when they read this but I've had a few that I know were not dreams. My dad and I met on a sidewalk in front of my townhome when I was 19. He died 9 years before this. We were standing about 6 ft apart from each other and it was a beautiful sunny day. The colors were vibrant, like nothing I had seen on earth. He spoke without his mouth opening and vice versa. I understood him and he understood me. As I tried to reach him to hug him, he told me it wasn't my time yet and I 'woke up.' I've only remembered 2 dreams vividly and they were with people who've left. I do believe in a 3D universe and that energy we aren't in touch with is a sense that is possibly developed higher once we leave our physical bodies. Although, I've always been really intuitive. What you said makes total sense to me.

    regarding the color question (I forgot to talk about it) I think the primary colors are much more than we can see today (because our eyes functions are limited) , so again, because we see or do not see a particular color , it does not mean that is the correct or not the correct, it is just limitation. #17

    @Lisa ๐Ÿ Gallagher good questions there, I do believe like you that senses would be more highly developed if we were without them, I also think that a sense is not physically limited to one specific organ , for example, I do think without eyes (as example) we can still see (that is why there is something called "a third eye") , so if we believe , that eyes (for example) are the only organ responsible for vision , then they will be. It is all about our believes (thought limitations) and that lock us down to discover other paths, Let's take a look in a theory that says that we are basically pure energy beings living in a 3D world (that is also energy (atoms and etc..), it does not really matter eyes (because it is all energy) , so when we think like that the definition of each organ does not make sense anymore as all is just energy, my five cents. #17

    I'm glad this popped back up on the radar @Flavio ๐Ÿ‡ฏ๐Ÿ‡ต Souza ๐Ÿ, I like how you think, I mean question! My theory, never become a blind follower and always question what's around you, your own motives, others motives (no one is pure) there are good people, not so nice people and evil people. I often question whether there are parallel universes in which we are living a different life, it doesn't mean that's so but my mind goes there. I forgot to touch on the subject of language that you brought up, I think that along with other senses would be more highly developed if we were without them. For example, people who were blind from birth (think Stevie Wonder), were able to tap into their higher senses and share their gift with the world. Here's a silly question I've often pondered: Because someone told me "this is blue," am I seeing the same color they are just because we can all (unless blind or color blind) point out colors when asked? So many questions without answers. Never stop second guessing oneself, it can lead to revelations and sometimes more questions ;-)

    #21 Thank you for stopping by Phil. When it comes to Candelaโ€™s shells, everything began with the new and original form of structure unexplored at that time. He experimented with the form and tried to find how much can be done with such kind of structure.
    In this case, I could say that form follows the structure up to a maximum limitation of its geometric form. Hope it sounds meaningful. :-) Thanks for the interesting question.

    Wow these designs , the beauty and geometry behind it is breath-taking ! Thanks @Lada ๐Ÿก Prkic These are pretty awesome

    I think there are a few art works like this in India built on geometrical concepts.The Lotus temple in Delhi is composed of 27 free-standing marble-clad "petals" arranged in clusters with a capacity of 2,500 people. There's something so calm and breath taking about just being inside the structure. I waited for new 2 hours before we got in but it was an amazing experience . As for Dubai I am yet to explore !

    The term 'hypar', Lada, seems almost too punk to describe such beautiful hyperbolic paraboloids. These shell fusions of geometry, architecture and structural engineering produce such a clean artistic impression. The constructed examples you have included are, for me, attractive in their initial flawless simplicity, which disguises their mathematical complexity. How do you label the professionals who design and construct such seemingly fluid structures, as they are neither solely mathematicians, engineers, nor architects, but an integrated synthesis of them all?

    My only criticism, Lada, is that your post if far too long to be properly digested at one brief sitting. I have saved it to my reading list in order to enjoy it again at my leisure.

    #10 Thanks for commenting Mohammed. I just wanted to present this beautiful geometric form and its possibilities of the sculptural use in architecture and construction, focusing on reinforced concrete as a material for hypar shells. The richness of this form is most evident when hypars are connected edge-to-edge, resulting in variety of beautiful thin curved surfaces.
    Zaha Hadid used many elements of hyperbolic geometry in her works and designed shells of complex shapes and forms.

    @Lada ๐Ÿก PrkicThese artworks are very creative and eye catching.I'm certain they will satisfy the scientific curiosity of many construction engineers and will be met with a highest level of interest and desire to implement them everywhere. These waved constructions reminds me with the creativity of Zaha Hadeed architectures in Germany.Zaha's designs were made to depict the customs ,ideas and appearance of time using the sea waves scenes which are existed every where.Thank you for sharing such creativity.

    Emergence 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.
