    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
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cMtWpXfZBIk

    The other is MIT related and features the U-Theory concept of Otto Scharmer
    https://www.presencing.com/ulab/overview

    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

I envision it having a very powerful effect if it does so evolve and/or emerge in resulting fusion of relationships. I see in this three brilliant minds with a high potential of affinity.

    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.

    And love this post on Optologics.
    So simple and yet effective explanation that self-management is true intelligence. Yes we are responsible for the way we let others influence us. That's why I learnt not to blame situations or people but look at my mistakes as a learning journey.

    As you say "Common sense is not what we believe, but what we can all agree on"
    What the current education system doesn't allow an individual to use common sense or even to think. The set frame work is like a sheep of herd led in one direction. I enjoyed reading this alot and Happy to meet you here on BeBee 🤗

    #55 Thank you dear @siraj shaik for your comment. Yes, your point is valid and it has the "voice of wisdom and reasoning".

    #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 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 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. Damage occurrence's occur in either ways.. balancing becomes the efficient methodology.

    18/02/2017 #54 Ali Anani
    #53 Thank you so much dear @Donald Grandy for making a great comment. Yes, excessive sugar in our bodies is harmful as much as excessive salt is. Insulin -= voice of reason, poor eating habits = toxic team members and poorly functioning pancreas -= toxic team leader. What a great analogy! I invite dear @Deb🐝 Lange to enjoy your comment because she is bound to be interested in it as much as I am. I don't want to say to many sweet words to avoid the need for insulin, but this comment shall stay with me for long times .
    Donald Grandy
    18/02/2017 #53 Donald Grandy
    As always @Ali Anani 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.

    Sir @Ali Anani focusing on "Sugar Solution" giving a comparisons with the "Honey" both are sweet and are extracted nectars. These nectars can be from flowers or fruits, stem or seeds, roots or resources.. else from the 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..

    While it helps to have your 'sugary mixture' to keep employees stabilized and moving forward as a group, I see no harm in injecting a small amount of salt into the mix to stimulate groups who may have a) become used to the status quo or b) whose activity has dropped off.

    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

    Loved the bit about the fire from wood is the sun coming back out, the same sun that broke down the carbon and oxygen atom to get rid of the "useless oxygen" [from the Tree's view]. I can never get enough of Feynman - nice ending to my evening albeit after I honour an educator who passed away on Tuesday. with one more buzz.

    Normally I like to poke at things people like, but not Richard Feynman - the very first moment I got to know about him, I was won over - his brilliance, his style, his ability to notice, his science communication, his smile and way - and a life that when I begin to peel into has layers and layers of brilliance. I can sleep well tonight and with great Feynman type joy concluding my night with this video at TED.

    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..

    I remember reading in a science book about constructing the Sierpinski triangle. The triangle is named after Wacław Sierpiński and as fractals are wont the pattern appears in many places, so there are many different ways of constructing the triangle on a computer. I think its like drawing a triangle in a triangle. You begin with one triangle, and at every step replace each triangle with 3 subtriangles, time to head home Milos, just finished teaching classes this late afternoon here in Savannah, ... lots of rain today :) regards, Bill

    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 -
    https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/falling-things-cityvp-manjit

    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 🐝 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 🐝 Gallagher #20

    #18 I've often pondered the idea of the third eye too @Flavio 🇯🇵 Souza 🐝. 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.
    Flavio 🇯🇵 Souza 🐝
    18/02/2017 #19 Flavio 🇯🇵 Souza 🐝
    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
    Flavio 🇯🇵 Souza 🐝
    18/02/2017 #18 Flavio 🇯🇵 Souza 🐝
    @Lisa 🐝 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
    Lisa 🐝 Gallagher
    18/02/2017 #17 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher
    I'm glad this popped back up on the radar @Flavio 🇯🇵 Souza 🐝, 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 ;-)

    #12 Ken, you’re right about the length of the post, but I decided to include at least the most significant thin concrete hypar shells. Perhaps a chapter about Philips Pavilion could be a separate post. But I hope that a person who is interested in this topic will read the entire post.
    I think that only @Gerald Hecht wrote the longer post than I. ✍️ 👨‍🔬

    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 🏡 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
    http://yozh.org/2010/12/01/mset005/

    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.

    While there are handwriting fonts which can be built from one's own handwriting, I prefer the handwritten fonts. While these fonts do not make any of us an ounce more skilled in the art of calligraphy, they are more natural in look and feel, and best of all they add an extra dimension to whatever creative accompaniment we need, especially since few us have honed artistic or crafting skills,.

    More power to us with this arsenal of kind of creative bits and bobs that would otherwise be out of reach of our respective non-artisan talent.. Creative Bloq seems to be a trusted source.

Complacency, idleness, and being stuck in your ways can lead to eventual destruction.

    Dear @Ali Anani I do have drafts of at least 3 more books.
    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

    An 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,

    #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.

    Do 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 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.

    Scientists 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.

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.

    Humans Are Constantly Fractals
    Humans Are Constantly FractalsThe question that is keeping my mind busy these days is if humans are fractals not in their bodies only, but also in their emotions. We know that our nervous system, lungs, artilleries are all fractals. Human bodies have cellular structure. Are...

    In 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?

    Thank you dear @Mohammed Sultan for this great comment. You may notice the fractality of or brain cells from image 1 of this buzz (brain cell fractals). So, I am in agreement with you.

    #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.

    #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.

    As 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. #24

    #26 I wish to thank you @Sara Jacobovici for writing such an insightful comment. Your differentiation between repetition and patterns is truly meaningful. I just wanted to thank you for this leaving the rest tp @Deb 🐝 Helfrich to respond.

    #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.

    #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.

    #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:

    We 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.

    Let's supposse that your theory here has merit. So what? How can humankind harness this insight for a greater good? Can you scale up/down sorrow? Joy? Fear? Would be interesting to read a follow-up that explores the meaning of this revelation. Very interesting!

    #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.

    #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.

    I 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.

    Max🐝 J. Carter
    04/12/2016 #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.
