Implantation of Hope

Implantation of Hope

The spread of dark news of Corona epidemic is frightening the world and all nations have joined hands trying to prevent the spread of the killer virus. Dark news travel fast and nations are prompted to find the light of hope in controlling this epidemic.

The increasing connectivity of the world is making it complex. The question if the heart of the complex social world is dark in emulation of the dark strange attractor of Mandelbrot that resembles a heart?


There are signs that our world is increasingly becoming chaotic with a dark heart. I like to call this “Social Darkness” that eats up the social capital. Dying professions, increasing poverty of resources, dimmed hearts of the unemployed, increasing broken families, and worldwide spread of diseases and increased levels of carelessness for others are signs of the social dark hearts that lose hopes and faith. What I call “The Chaos of Paradoxes” is spreading and including the paradox that namita sinha described in her comment on my shared previous post on LinkedIn. Namita wrote in her comment “…ignorance is better or information overload ; tranquility or chaos ..,calm or stress ,alone or in company..; happy or distress..--; and then the paradoxes”.

Researches at MIT have found ways to make plants glow without the risk of using genetically-modified processes by injecting solutions of nanoparticles of the glowing chemicals found in some glowing species into the leaves of plants. This process turns the plant’s stored energy into light, similar to how fireflies glow.

How to move out of this situation is the question. We may derive our lessons from nature. How marine species manage to live in the deep darkness of oceans? They depend on self-illumination as ninety percent of them produce their own light. We need people to lighten their paths independently and in this course they also lighten the darkness of others. This idea is in total agreement with what @Kevin Baker wrote in a recent postI invite all people out there to follow their instincts, to be happy, and reconsider their goals to create more for the others, rather than just oneself”. It is not enough that we have only intentions; more important is to act on them as @Harvey Lloyd and Fay Vietmeier in a supportive way. Marine species have different intentions for being self-light glowing. They use this ability to attract mates, warning of approaching danger, distraction to avoid and/or distract predators, communication and mimicry to camouflage and avoid predators.

As we live in the darkness of chaos and the social heart is dark we need to create our own light as marine species do to lighten the dark paths of others. This is genuine social-caring.

We humans need to produce our own light to serve others and not only ourselves, or to deceive others. This is in agreement with what Tausif Mundrawala meant in his great comment on my previous post by writing “I think they should initiate with the intention of nothing to lose but everything to gain. It's like being a person with a heart and mind of steel where fear of unknown and being rejected doesn't affect them. There is something in them which they keep hiding even with themselves otherwise we would have seen more ideas coming to fruition in many ways. Keep trying until you succeed”.

#111 It s my pleasure to quote you dear @Tausif Mundrawala and also thank you for sharing the post.

Yes, social pressures sometimes deviate us from doing what is right. Here, we need to be creative and alert on how to respond to these pressures without feeling alienated.

I hope you start writing again my friend and that life has less pressure on you.

Self-illuminating oneself becomes easy when is self-aware. How about those who aren't? Living in a family especially a joint family becomes a huge task if one suddenly becomes the head due to the most important person's death. In such a scenario one could make out that the probability of that person being pressurized would be very high. If those family members are self-aware then it's absolutely fine. Otherwise to navigate this ship becomes very very difficult.

I have missed a lot on this platform especially the most important posts. I am elated to be quoted here.

Thank you so much, Sir @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee

#109 @Paul Walters- great and I am keen on reading your post. It is a "dark journey".

@Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee As always a well thought out and crafted piece. Food for thought! Today I posted a piece on this platform on the fragmentation of democracy in America ... I find this 'darkness' all rather sobering. As for the media and the current health scare they say in that profession..." if it bleeds. it leads! "

"Many ideas that were close to glowing were killed because of their rejection."
Truer words were never spoken
How often does BIAS & BLINDNESS (lack of understanding) kill both the message & the Messenger

#104 My dear friend @Zacharias 🐝 Voulgaris- Thank you for your appreciation. As I read this part of your comment "Psychological tricks like this can often help us shift our moods" I opened my mouth in surprise. Today, even though I have three drafts of posts almost ready, I decided to write a post about nudging behaviors. So, what you call psychological tricks is in lime with what I mean by nudging ideas that are creative enough to make a change.

This is the second time this week that our minds meet.
