    keeps the mind yearning and the creative juices flowing! Most artists of any persuasion continue to create until they are disabled by poor health... that means a long life span of creativity. - even if not for public consumption. So if you haven't taken up a creative hobby now's the time to start so you have something that continues to inspire you to learn and grow.

    Not much I can add to the erudite discussions @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee except to say that I found the discussions on this important concept.I wondered about the connection between spontaneity and creativity.When in the "stream of conciousness/flow" many great artists and musicians have claimed to have achievedtheir greatest succeses. Example a song composed in minutes; a painting in hours. I also find a close connection between spontenaity and innocence; how much easier for an innocent child to be spontaneous than a world weary child? Its a truism that we all need to seek our inner child again @Sara Jacobovici.

    Yes, many commenters don't tick the like, but they make repeated comments. I believe the comment is more enriching for them. Also, some bees tick the like button, but don't comment. A third point is that the comments count the authors' responses. So, the number of comments might be well-over the likes sometimes.

    AN ENGINEERING WONDER, THE NEW CROTON DAM
    This masonry dam is among the most impressive man-made structures in the world.
    When originally constructed in 1906, the New Croton Dam was the largest in the world (91 m high from base to crest). To this day it is the third largest hand-hewn structure in the world, after the Great Pyramid of Giza and the Great Wall of China!!
    Its foundation extends 40 m below the bed of the river, and the dam contains 650,000 m3 of masonry.
    The original dam was built in 1842. In the 1890s construction on the New Dam was begun to provide more water to New York City. Located near Croton-on-Hudson, New York, the dam has a beautiful waterfall-like spillway and an aerial bridge.
    Here is the link to a video about this amazing structure, including a short history lesson. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p_o2rcMAjLI&t=48s

I have never met a person from Lebanon who did not offer great accounts of how life used to be, and to see this account mirror their sentiments is very good to see.

    Indeed I agree with you on the fact that we are really lucky to be on such perfectly designed planet earth and should take care of it.

    As condition on Mars are not even close but it can be terraformed to liveable for human beings with technological advances.
    But the fact that it will loose its atmosphere gradually as science say's.

    But it is the closest and possible journey which is in actually in plan with organizations like Mars one and Elon musk vision with SpaceX.

    The great thing about taking a trip to Mars is that it will show us just how lucky we are to be living on Earth . The bad thing about taking a trip to Mars is that it will be one way trip for now. Mars is a great place to contemplate that how crazy we are to have left Earth, no matter how much we convince ourselves that we chose the pioneering spirit.

    Look what happens to Astronauts when they enter microgravity, https://www.nasa.gov/audience/foreducators/postsecondary/features/F_Bones_in_Space.html - because we are not even biologically designed to be in space, never mind the rigours and atmospheres of other planets. http://www.sciencealert.com/watch-could-we-actually-create-artificial-gravity

    08/05/2017 #34 Sara Jacobovici
    #32 I like the way you organized your thoughts @Gert Scholtz. In the spirit of philosophy, Aristotle produced the work Problemata; each volume made up of questions related to a topic. He had one on Music and used similar descriptions such as yours, "We improvise, mix tunes and melodies, play in harmony with an orchestra, orchestrate a band..." All musical elements can be found in any aspect of our lives; physical, emotional/psychological, social and spiritual. What I love about the line in Hameroff's quote is that he finds the music in the deepest parts of our brain. His is an inward view while Pythagoras and Plato looked outward; "There is a legend that Pythagoras could hear the 'music of the spheres' enabling him to discover that consonant musical intervals can be expressed in simple ratios of small integers. The tones correlated with the great celestial movements of the day. Pythagoras' concepts were transferred by Plato and others into models about the structure of the universe."

    @Sara Jacobovici “Consciousness is more like music than computation”. Taking only this words and applying a binary view, as far as this relates to a general business environment, I would say that consciousness alternates between music composition and computational efficiency. Innovation, adapting to change and social interaction is very much a music composing state of consciousness. We improvise, mix tunes and melodies, play in harmony with an orchestra, orchestrate a band, and create new self-awareness and a shared consciousness. But often computational efficiency is required. Quick and correct actions to be implemented, sequential thinking in terms of practicality and experienced cause and effect iterations, and efficiency improvements all are components of computational thinking. So, as far as it relates to business, I would say consciousness alternates between music composition and computation of practicalities.

    Consciousness has implications. If we explain the concept in scientific terms then it is merely a collection of machine parts acting out their natural existence, much as a tree lives. If we explain it spiritual then we leave the tangible and enter the mystic world of understanding human nature.

    There is a hitch of course as it seems to be in all human endeavours. Speaking from one perspective or the other we find ourselves in a camp. A camp that is defined by the nature vs nurture discussion. There seems to be a need for many to subscribe that we are one or the other.

    I believe your post subscribes to, we are both. Regardless of the one you choose to motivate or propel you forward within a community they both apply at some point. Fact and faith are not necessarily dichotomies.

    I see science as drawing a hard line in this mystical area of consciousness because they can't find it under a microscope. I appreciate this point of view as empirical science should be tested and understood wholly. I also see that the line has caused issues as science not only went so far as to say empirically something doesn't exist until proven, but observation of something unproven is bogus.

    We can't have it both ways. I can't claim something doesn't exist just because i can't prove it does. I don't know would be the response in such a case. This circular argument is confusing and leaves folks at the altar of science wanting. Philosophy/spiritual is needed to fill in the gaps that science leaves behind.

    Science is the "how" and spiritual/consciousness is the "why".

    #25 Thank you @Sara Jacobovici. You surely swim in the sea of music.
    My last comment had two linguistic mistakes, which I am sure you detected (studies instead of studied and o instead of to).
    I have a question here. Why do we spot our mistakes only after publishing comments? Is it because we think we proof read while our minds are busy in publishing the comments? Do we dance to the music of mistakes? This happens to me frequently and I am trying to find out why. I was even considering publishing a buzz on this issue.

    #24 Thanks for highlighting the music metaphor @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee. When it comes to music and consciousness, music is perceived at every level or state of consciousness. Although music is seen as a skill, or related to a "talent", elements of music appear in every aspect of our lives; physical, emotional/psychological, social and spiritual. Many scientists are also musicians. “If I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician. I often think in music. I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music.” ― Albert Einstein

    You studies music and I wonder how it added to your consciousness. I only enjoy music; otherwise I know nothing. Had I had the opportunity to study music how would have it affect my consciousness is a question that I find no answer o.

    Dear @Sara Jacobovici, I wrote about the relationship between science and philosophy in 2015 on LinkedIn. On that occasion in the section entitled: "Science and Philosophy -Self-similarity concept" I emphasized that the apparent separation and relocation of scientists from philosophy is a fatal mistake. Maybe, Mr. Albert Einstein did not have with whom to share their philosophical dilemmas and insights during their old age. This is not surprising having in mind the presence of the extraordinary woman beside him: Mrs. Mileva Einstein - Maric; “The Sixth Element“. Yet, Einstein asked her for a divorce in 1919. It was a fatal mistake and probably the reason why he had not finished an ultimate innovation. Freedom of self-expression is worth fighting for, that is the essential meaning of the self - similarity concept. As we get older the desire for freedom is growing. During childhood, usually we are fully self-similar. Nevertheless, fragments tend to become scattered with time and due to the accumulation of conflicting experiences. Then, targeted interactions with people, adds up all again. That's what you said so eloquently in this excellent article and thank you so much for that. I call it virtual synchronicity or a fractal alignment (I'm not the only one).

In respecting self we are able - as your 3 short - but invaluable statements conspicuously point out - 1. Treat others as I would love them to treat me; 2.

    What do I think? That you have described with very little and wise words something I have tried to explain many times, which is, the path my parents taught me and I have been following mainly due to some inculcated instinct. Many times we have concurred in similar questions along with many posts, on which I always wanted to escape from being tightened to patterns, claiming that putting my energies on stitching to high human values instead of trying to discover a formula or a pattern that explains the human behaviour was the wise thing to do.
    Human behaviour is by far one of the most complex issues we can face. In order to master it, instead of trying to understand it, we need to make it happen, that is, overwhelming our soul with the things we decide we want to have in our life, and our path on it will have no other option than following the rules we imposed. If we target love, love is what we are going to get.

When our filters are designed by our experiences and needs then we often take what is presented at face value.

    I agree with your three simple rules. Rule #2 is quite interesting because it is subject to change, as we change. During our journey, our passions may take a different a path and that's okay because as we mature, our path and purpose change as well. With that said, I believe our purpose in life finds us as much as we may endeavor to find our purpose. We, however, have to open minded, accepting and mindful of others. Our passion and our purpose should not just be for ourselves but for the betterment of our world and all that it encompasses.

    All three of these rules are organic intent. We live in a world of manufactured happiness, manufactured purpose and manufactured image. We must surely want organic intent because otherwise why create the word "organization"? In all three things whether it is happiness, purpose or authenticity, these are outcomes of organic intent. Does life throw supreme challenges and unexpected moments at us? For sure and when life does, we remember that we are an organism and not a mechanical construction and the way back where there is one, is in being in touch with our organic being and its inner wisdom.

    #39 Yes, Ali, it is a lack of confidence, but the problem goes much deeper. When people don't have a clear "Core Identity", they flounder in all of the roles they play in life. They put so much emphasis on a role, or roles, they play that they lose who they really are. Then, it becomes important for them to find validation that they are playing their role(s) well, again, by verbal accolades, titles, awards, etc. People who know their Core Identity also appreciate accolades, titles, awards, etc., but, those things don't make-or-break them, as it did with the person in your post.

    @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee There is popular saying, If you want to be young, look young. We color our hairs, dress with jazzy stripes, put on sun glass and put on fairness creams. Your article on 'Why I prefer to look smaller?' is also quite similar. This smallness is youth, innocence, ignorant, foolish, simple and energetic.

    #43 One think is inescapable is that that your denominator gives you a high value f self-respect @Lada 🏡 Prkic. I love your comment and the ration you give between what we w are and what we think of ourselves. Very-well said "No matter how much we want to look bigger, we can't escape of what we really are". In life unfortunately people tend to forget the obvious.

    #35 Ali, I am not surprised at all. People do many things in order to gain prestige and look bigger in other's eyes.
    Furthermore, how many people we know who are doing a job they are not capable of, not in terms of academic degrees but in terms of their abilities. Many of them sit in various steering committees or, even worse, they are part of the government.
    They don't understand that this is not the way to look big, it's a lack of self-respect.
    “A man is like a fraction whose numerator is what he is and whose denominator is what he thinks of himself. The larger the denominator, the smaller the fraction.”
    No matter how much we want to look bigger, we can't escape of what we really are.

    #33 Dear friend @Aaron 🐝 Skogen- you have the right mentality and that is why you learn. Yes, we should seek self-respect and with it comes good work. If I have self-respect I don't behave badly. What a self-respect does a person have with a faked PhD have? This person will spend his life doubting himself and others for fear of being found out. If he had self-respect and a PhD degree is his ambition he should work hard to achieve his goal. Living a life based on lies shall only make things worse.

    #32 Dear friend @Edward Lewellen- you are a wise man. "Because many don't give value to their worth, they find their importance in titles and degrees". Yes, you are correct and these are the people like your singer example get their worth from people. Is it because of self-doubt? Why a good singer would think he isn't if some people told him so? Is it lack of self-confidence? You raise an important issue- what are the root causes of such behaviors? This would be interesting to explore. What do you think?

    Sometimes life becomes like Donald Trump talking about his hands, and at that point if we are devoid of reality big and small become mere illusion. When thoughts about humility become a groupthink, it is not humility but a categorization to good and bad. Possessing humility is more good or bad than possessing ego. When Marianne Williamson says "Your playing small does not serve the world." http://www.goodreads.com/quotes/928-our-deepest-fear-is-not-that-we-are-inadequate-our it brings balance to the frame we may have set about identifying with small vs. big. Context then becomes relevant for the healthy of big is a different context to the unhealthy of small. If the context is health then the sizing is healthy and sizing of humility becomes a contextual intelligence.

    IT sounds to me like the man in your story had a very low opinion of himself, did not see his own value and felt the need to "cheat" the system for outside validation. How unfortunate!

    I have said it before and I'll say it again. I WANT to be the dumbest guy in the room! I say that because that is where my opportunity for growth lies, in learning from others. I'd say you are saying the same dear @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee.

    Dear friend, my experience working with people who have low self-esteem relates to your post. Because many don't give value to their worth, they find their importance in titles and degrees. When working with people, including corporate executives, I often find that they have a high self-ego, but low self-worth. They have accomplished much and they are proud of those accomplishments, however, they feel no value in them unless the value comes from others. I recently saw a contestant in a singing competition being interviewed. The person made the statement, 'I'm so glad people are voting for me. It let's me know that I'm a good singer.' I instantly wondered, "So, if those people don't think you are, does that mean you're not a good singer?" I'm sure there are people who don't think that person is a good singer, but, does that mean he's not? To me, it was if he couldn't be a good singer unless someone else told him he was. And, this is how many people live, needing and wanting endorsements and approval from outside of themselves. I believe this is why so many people want the title of Assistant Manager, Manager, VP, President, CEO, PhD, etc. Those are external sources which give people validation of their internal worth. How sad. My guess is that was the case with the person in your post.

    Very engaging insights, Ali, as always. I do so look forward to your posts.

    When faced with a grizzly bear on a hiking trail -the usual park ranger advice is to spread your arms wide to appear bigger and shake your body so all the hanging paraphernalia on your pack makes noise to make you sound bigger. I've not met a grizzly yet -but it seems a good strategy is such circumstances.

    However, most of life is unlike meeting a grizzly bear on a hiking trail. I find that I am attracted more to those who are humble, i.e. not so blinded by their puffed up size that they will not be able to empathize with "'l'il' ol' me" :-)

    I experience you through your writing as a humble man -but certainly not small in any sense -big ideas -highly visible on social media -a giant, but. . .
    open - -receptive -definitely NOT a puffer fish.

    Please keep sharing your insights - they make me think BIGGER.

    Whether we admit it or not, we all tend to look bigger because we live in a competitive world. This is particularly evident in the world of science.
    For some people getting a doctoral degree is a means of elevating themselves over others. The rich man you mentioned in the buzz is not the only example.

    I have seen the Mangroves in South Florida (where I believe they are protected) and in Haiti, but have not spent any time walking or wading through them. This article inspires me to take a closer look the next time I have a chance. I guess I'd better pack a bugsuit though! We joke around here that the Mosquito could be the "Minnesota State Bird", as they do come out in droves in the summer, but the Mangroves may have me rethink the word "droves". . .

    Its unfortunate to see coastal development destroying this ecological treasure. You'd think we, as a species, would learn.

    I grew up in Florida, where Mangroves contribute to the health of the coastline, especially in South Florida. They are true natives to the state of Florida and state and local regulations are set to protect them. They are considered one of Florida's most important resources. And yes, Avon's Skin-so-Soft is a great mosquito repellent. Thank you for the excellent read, @Paul Walters.

    I prefer to focus on more than one of anything. More than one post, more than one hive, more than one idea, etc. offers more options, which I can pick and choose my take away. I feel my visions and objectives have a better chance at being broadened by reading, seeing or hearing more than one person's views.

    I'm not one to put all of my eggs in one basket. I've learned from a few real life events that it doesn't work, at least for me.

    #94 Well said, we reached right customers in return got good customer response which gave ways-in for loyalty development.. I was like a cross-link to my friend, his employer and customers. On 5th day went and collected my documents, also it was good to see the employment confirmation duly signed "Mr ... appointed as Area Manager .....". In return as focusing on my loyalty I was offered assist region manager, had to refuse as I hadn't completed graduation some subjects were yet to finish to get my degree.. More my focus was to establish a small workshop, so as to generate provisioning a half dozen employment at least.

    #62 from realties of life sharing an experience from early 1990's. One of my friend applied for a sales person job (matching as per qualification and experience), showed us the ad. Taking a peep on info, asked him why not apply for "Area manager or Team lead". Response from other friends to my suggestion was more negative. Following day I accompanied along, evening after the interview finding an opportunity greeted the General manager and asked if it's ok to share few words and evaluated the team tree maybe the sales in a month should be of this value? and if my friend fulfills the total sale equivalency (quantities equal to 16 sales persons "under the area manager 4 Team supervisors and under each team supervisor at least 4 salesman" then will they be willing to offer my friend Area Manger position? GM agreed and stated conditions (prove it and get placed in position along with an additional bonus. Else not a single Paise will be given nor expenses occurred will be paid). My friend signed the appointment took advance (gave copies of my license and moped document plus myself signed a promissory stamp paper as security). Later next day asked some friends to join us to accomplish sales, rather taking four weeks to lessen time in a week. Guided them with what and what not's, showed the market places. Within four weeks six months sales had been achieved. Used simple strategy by focusing on market. At that time I was just out of college and was working in a factory.

    #80 true. In a company which has lived a few years I.e. survived and grown, it is true.

    Here strategy mplemented within context of the vision and objectives.

    But then we are back to focus. Vision and objectives as points of focus.
    Many times within a year a person finds vision and objectives to be redundant eg Start-ups, new governments, even individuals.

    Then it returns focus and spread of focus, embodied by points of focus.

    True vision can be all encompassing, but everybody cannot apply it that way. Vision/objective is for the future, our capacity is in the present and often Vision and objectives are precieved with very few elements of the present, we delink micro and macro, the link is broken.

    You and I already know our methods of application , here we look at a metaphorical context to seek replicable method.

    Suppose if we were to define the vision and objectives of this buzz by @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee in one line each. How would that be?

    @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee To your excellent post I might add that I think the Pareto Rule is dynamic - what is the profitable 20% today may be part of the unproductive 80% tomorrow, and vice versa. So it is important that company focus oscillates between wide and narrow so as to keep up with the continuous change in the Pareto mix.

    #1 @Ali Anani What a wonderful question -I wish I had asked my father that before he passed away in 2000.
    Let me guess. . .
    My father wanted to sing professionally. He had a wonderful bass voice and enjoyed singing more than almost anything. His father was a printer (and a poet). My grandfather earned his living printing store window placards, movie posters and business materials. My father did layout and all the selling. Unfortunately my grandmother passed away around the time my father was to attend Washington University on a full scholarship to study voice. My grandfather was bereft and distraught about his son and a key employee going away. "Just stay a while and help me; you can study music later."
    Two years later my grandfather died,some said of a broken heart. He was 51. My father took over the business to support his younger sister who was 14 and was printer for the rest of his working life.
    He never gave up his artistic tendencies, singing as an avocation, painting in later life, but mostly framing wide-eyed wonder in a 2"x2" frame.
    The photos are a record of our family, my parents' travels and their life together. While my sisters and I complained about sorting them and putting them in albums, they are a treasure.
    Thanks for reading and asking

    Wonderful buzz with great set of reflections @Alan Culler It is wonderful to be in touch with the inner child within us and allowing ourselves to be as we truly are.... In these moments of rapture we evolve appreciating the simple joys of living life authentically.
    .My mothers uncle was a well known writer in his times and a lover of all arts especially photography . What you mention here about your dad and his love for photography, I have heard from my mother similar stories of his collectios as well. Photographers and all artists of all kinds perhaps inately sense a need to admire that one sparkling moment of eternal time and hence try yo capture it for posterity such that they leave their uniique imprints forever in time. Indeed priceless are the treaures of the heart.

    #70 Thanks again for the tag @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee. My gut reaction on this one is to say that I am not quite comfortable with the "manager" relationship between mind/spirit. Each has its own unique reality and influence. As well, I don't imagine it being a static relationship. My sense is that there is more of an ebb and flow quality in the relationship, rather than one of managing.

    #70 People generally see meaning in existence as important but often it is betrayed by their practice - what can live and breathe in the mind, expires, evaporates and retires in the cold air of reality. Harvey has included an OR when this is one thing which is integral within us and only an OR when we are making the actuality of a choice. That is when that OR can betray us.

    Otherwise the body-spirit or spirit-body aspect is CMYK - i.e. just a four colour printing produces the actual picture, so it is as I view the four core intelligences. You know that I am engaged in PHYSICAL INTELLIGENCE which is more than just physical fitness, but that intelligence is just one colour layer. Overlaying that is SPIRITUAL INTELLIGENCE, SOCIAL INTELLIGENCE and COGNITIVE INTELLIGENCE. Bring all those four into harmony and the single colour dream becomes a four colour reality, but we must learn to become great printers of that existence.

    Unfortunately we are not great printers. That is what young people are finding out - they want meaning and existence (which I totally agree with Harvey about) but that is not how things end up being for young people when reality strikes. I find that they don't want to acknowledge that reality if it is pointed out, indeed my experience here is no comforter - because they have not lived that experience and they don't have enough trust bridges to make the leap of faith.

    So a few live anxious, distrustful and naive even though their social projections are one of absolute sure footed existence, marvelous shows of "living life" and of being an "interesting person". I have made that mistake of peeling that facade away at times and I am learning that this is actually learned THIS WEEK that this is a cruelty and not a help. It is insufficient for me to say to a young person "you can't handle the truth", it is more important that I too become young - and that means engaging the spirit of starting over - with beginners mind.

    A few days vacation and a small piece of the world has moved forward on your great thoughts and writing @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee. I heard a comment the other day that really did give the head a spin. Do we have a body that manages our spirit or a spirit managing the body.

    Academia would have us think that the spirit is something personal and with education you can manage your physical world. From a lay view though i would say our younger generation is rebelling against this mindset. They seek meaning in existence not just diplomas. Yet academia tends to keep meaning at arms length.

    Many great comments here and have enjoyed the reading.

More importantly the rules help us explore new places of planting". Regarding training - As a trainer our job is to improve the capabilities, productivity and performance of our trainees. To do this we must continue to learn and improve ourselves, daily, in order to present, share and arm our trainees with the appropriate information to help them flourish in todays competitive and changing world.

    #60 AND I totally agree with you about free thinking. Intelligence does not depend on privileged background or prestige or status and neither should right to education. When a Liberal government is in power in Australia, they slash funding to social services, old age and disability pensions, refugees, childcare, education, university places, police, health, the Arts, NGOs under the guise of reducing the deficit and balancing the budget and give mega companies - tax breaks ! It's about supporting the status quo and their $$$ and their prestige to the detriment of the ordinary people without whom the country would NOT function.

    This program was hugely expensive and not really sustainable educationally.

    #60 After spending 3/4 life in school or teaching it and being a thinking person, I don't think that what you are saying sounds revolutionary. I agree the funding system badly needs addressing. In the same area of suburbs in Sydney, there is a private boy's school that receives more funding than an "ordinary" state school.The private boy's school has a cohort of extremely rich parents who support the school unlike the ordinary state school. Is this equity?

    #50 It is obvious you have a lot to say in this matter. I am sorry if I sound too "revolutionary", but it is not only the way of teaching which is obsolete. the funding itself is based as well an obsolete model. Governments are getting taxes and distributing them to their premises. In a society which has increased so much the longevity of its components, and the children mortality has been reduced so much, together with the fact of investing more and more on weapons, which are more and more expensive....this is not a sustainable model anymore.
    To implement a Montessori system (I know it well as my daughter went to such a school) has two threats for the people in power. One, is more expensive, but this could be managed. The second is, that it would produce free thinking people, and that is precisely what they don't want.

    #56 Your point about using the Internet to learn is what I consider education to be, after all what I think here is a part of my learning journey. We don't have to reform the education system and its rotten test culture that makes good teachers into rubric robots - as we use resources outside the class and students use their mobiles - the school boards may wake up in the spirit of this buzz to ask themselves a self-reflective question "Why do the best make the worst?".

    #52 Here students who go to private schools have better opportunities because of their language skills and exposure to addressing audience through theater plays and other social activities.
    However; again it depends on the individual. My daughter Sara speaks fluent Turkish and she has never taken a single class to formally study tis language. She won one semester scholarship at the prestigious MIddle East Technical University in Ankara.The university reaches in English, but all students have to attend language Turkish courses. My daughter passed all levels and isn't taking any course. She is a student of the German Jordan University and yet her Turkish is better than her German. There is passion for the Turkish language because it is for ladies much more than German is. That is her opinion. So, we learn more when we have passion.
    The role of schools changed and school teachers should realize this fact. Students can use the internet to learn a lot. Teachers may find their job increasingly replaceable by technology. What isn't replaceable is the guidance of teachers. This guidance must be accompanied by many other skills.

The duality you and @Sara Jacobovici have discussed is the challenge to purpose. The ants do not engage in such duality. They have a singularity of purpose. The ant serves the community and the community serves the ant.

    If i am building my brand and you are building yours, can a higher purpose really be served?

    The rules would have to establish that my brand is based on the communities success. Most animals require a habitat and the basic elements of existence. Humans have the same but we also have a higher level of social need. This social need requires us to exist cohesively within a community, yet personal brands are sometimes in direct conflict with this need. When a community loses touch with its purpose as a whole then our personal brands become the filler. Creating a self fulfilling prophecy of social deprivation. This can be seen in history many times over. However there is a self correcting mechanism that always comes along that brings the community back to its purpose. One would hope that this will be civil discourse and intellect. In history it typically involved major conflict.

    Interesting discussion.

    #53 @Harvey Lloyd- your comment stirred my mind to the extent I couldn't respond to it in a timely manner.
    You reminded me of a presentation that I wrote almost three years back titled "The Three Simple Rules ARe Everywhere":
    https://www.slideshare.net/hudali15/the-three-simple-rules-everywhere
    I wonder if you have two minutes to read it because I give many examples of the three simple rules that lead to complexity. Meanwhile I am still thinking about the three simple rules that would lead to generating a binding or gluing purpose. I promise to comment again, but I need to firm up my mind first. May be you could help me.

    @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee ants are an amazing social group when you watch them. Humans cant get three people in a room to agree and commit to something 100%. Yet ants, in the hundreds, operate without verbal discussion and attack a goal with their whole self.

    I drew a point of reference from your post. The point is at that transaction where choice has to be made. Where do i put my grain of sand in ant world, or how would you like for me to interpret the report in human world.

    Ants seem to have some very clear yet complex understanding of what to do in each situation and execute. The task from the single ant perspective is seen as pretty elementary, but from a social structure is quite complex. The rules are simple in execution but there is no feedback loop within the choice. Meaning the choice once executed is not compared to another ant.

    What does this tell us as individuals when we face a choice of execution? Our choices seem to be challenged by variables that have no bearing on the impending goal or milestone.

    In making choices at the transaction level within humans what three rules would be necessary to cut through the variables that don't apply? Can it be that simple? Keeping in mind, there are two things going on, a person speaking and a person hearing. Both or all would need to adhere to the three rules.

    Challenging stuff.

    Humans, say scientists, are poor multi-taskers. And managing our time is critical to improving not only our lives but productivity. That said, we can certainly learn much from ants - who clearly are a highly highly productive group. And interesting to know ants can choose work they enjoy. Perhaps we should be more like ants Ali!.

    Ants are amazing at working together, @Ali Anani, but we'll never know if any ant stood out or distinguished itself in any form of sand collection. As long as ants are willing to accept the anthill as it exists, there never will be a distinguishable ant. Maybe nature is telling us something.

    #8 I had no idea you spent time in Japan. I had a similar experience at an old farm house in Shizuoka. These tsaklis were commissioned by lamas to be used in various rituals. They depict the various deities and icons of Vajrayana Buddhism such as Hevajra and his consort Nairatmya. I have quite a few that depict what appears to be a white conch shell, Sankha being the goddess of the conch.

    #5 These were painted on commission from a lama or monastery by Buddhist monks and depict many of the deities and icons of Vajrayana Buddhism. "The small painting would be placed in an offering bowl with wheat or rice in it, or else put on a korma, a special sculptural offering made of roasted barley flour and butter, the shape differing with each deity" (Treasures of Tibetan Art)

    I remember spending some time with one local during my time in Japan who was a storyteller of old folk tales. He loved telling telling Yamata no Orochi legends. He had similar small artwork (on parchment) that depicted the stories.

    For my perpetual extinction with disgrace, a subject of utter despicable!

    Nice and flowing thoughts dear @debasish majumder. However; I find myself asking all self-organizing systems do that from within and without asking for permission to self-organize. They adapt to the environment and exchange energy with it but then self-organize. Are we only responding to the external conditions, or go a step further to self-organize? I feel this topic is worthy of further study.

    Interesting reflection ... But as Calderon de la Barca said in his famous work "life is dream":

    The king dreams that he is king, and he lives
    With this deceit commanding,
    Disposing and governing;
    And this applause, which receives
    Borrowed, in the wind writes,
    And in ashes it converts
    Death, misery!
    That there are those who try to reign,
    Seeing that he has to wake up
    In the dream of death?

    The rich man dreams of his wealth,
    What more care he offers;
    The poor man who suffers
    Their misery and their poverty;
    The one who begins to thrive dreams,
    Dreams the one who tries and pretends,
    The one who hurts and offends dreams,
    And in the world, in conclusion,
    All dream what they are,
    Although no one understands it.

    I dream that I am here
    Of these prisons loaded,
    And I dreamed that in another state
    More flattering I saw myself.
    What is life? A frenzy.
    What is life? An illusion,
    A shadow, a fiction,
    And the greatest good is small:
    That all life is dream,
    And dreams, dreams are.
