Bubbles of Creativity

Bubbles of Creativity

The exchange of comments with @Sara Jacobovici on my last post is the force behind writing this buzz. I wrote in response to one of Sara's comments "What we think is a silent bubble is in fact a bubble waiting for agitation". Sara found this comment priceless and I explained the idea by giving an example. I wrote "Dears @Sara Jacobovici and @Irene Hackett- if you wish to witness silence in bubbles you may do so. Just empty a can of Seven-Up (being transparent) into a glass and wait till the bubbles cease. Add few granules of sand or rice to the glass and the silent bubbles shall start rising again. What we think is a silent bubble is in fact a bubble waiting for agitation.

This dialogue kept ringing bells in my head. Bubble ideas may sound airy, but if placed in the right conditions may produce ultrasonic sounds. A bubble behaves differently depending on the conditions they are produced and agitated. This way a bubble may gain an expected value. It is not only the bubble as much as the conditions in which it is created and agitated.

Bubbles of Creativity

We say we need fun at work to be able to come up with creative ideas. There are examples of fifteen animals that produce different types of bubbles. These animals produce bubbles for different reasons. For example, dolphins produce ring bubbles for their amusement. Whales produce a net of bubbles to localize fish within to swallow them. Beluga whales blow bubbles in four different forms depending on what they intend to do. These whales may blow fifty eight bubbles per minute from their mouths and blowholes in the forms of bubble bursts, streams, rings and drips. Some fish make nests of their bubbles to lay their eggs in the nets.

Bubbles may move or may freeze. In very cold weathers bubbles may freeze. In freezing, the bubbles show quite distinct colors from reflected light and glass-like behaviors. Just make a visit to this site and see for yourself what freezing does to bubbles. We may describe an idea as a bubble but before discarding it may be it is worthy freezing them. Who knows what colors and forms they shall have and new thinking may emerge. If a bubble idea doesn't move us may be we aren't yet ready to see its value or we lack the imagination to capture its value. We see the bubble, but fail to see the reflections of it. Let us freeze them for a while.

Bubbles of Creativity

Not happy with freezing ideas why not then blast them at considerable speed? Some shrimp release bubbles at the speed of 90 KMs an hour and with a release pressure up to 218 decibels. The released sound stuns small fish allowing the shrimp to capture them easily. Bubbles may not only talk, but may scream louder than pistol shots. We use the same principle in ultrasonic cleaning. The violent collapse of bubbles (cavitation) near solid surfaces and the resulting encroaching jet constitute the mechanism used in ultrasonic cleaning

It is our job to make stable bubbles. Like soap reduces the surface tension of water and stabilizes bubbles, so we also reduce tension and create bubbles with shape and stability. We tend to destabilize bubbles because of our attitude to them, when we could make use of them for various functions and including among others the need to "bubble" amusement at the workplaces. Not all houses of bubbles are built for any purpose. One insect such as the froghopper releases foamy bubbles from its back end. The insect's' body is soon covered with a foamy cover that looks like spit. This is for survival as predators are distracted from approaching a spit.


Ants in the sea form a raft so as not to sink in water. Amazingly, snails use the same trick by forming rafts. A snail makes the raft by mixing slime from its body with air. This mixture releases viscous bubbles that stick together. The snail adheres to the underside of the raft and floats away. It is amazing how floating ideas differ in their approach and yet serve the purpose of survivability. Bubbles are our means of survival in deep waters and yet we have a low perspective of bubbles.

Bubbles can be the health indicators. When plants photosynthesize they release oxygen, which is dissolved in the water. This water will eventually be saturated with oxygen and soon the oxygen will form small air bubbles. This is pearling. This is a healthy indicator that the plant is growing well.

Bubbles are containers of energy. They have their potential. So are bubbly ideas. They are storage of potential. It is up to us how to use their energies. One bubble might do little; thousands of bubbles might beย lifesaversย for businesses.

The latest trend for advertising is trying to adapt to the new scenario, what the audience would motivate the most. Features of products are not interesting anymore, as they can be checked in your mobile phone immediately. Big companies try to make the audience feeling great if they purchase the product.

This is exactly the idea, dear Ali, in order not to "lose" any comment related to the "bubbling honey effect" in the middle of the countless posts and have them all in one place. Fatima Williams would be a very appreciated member if she wants to apply. By sharing the present post, her comment is already at the hive, ready to be read for any bee who is interested in the issue.

Dear Fatima Williams- as I am writing this comment my mind is blowing in different directions. Trees carry out our: โ€ข life prints, โ€ข our stories, โ€ข our phobia, โ€ข our storytelling structure, โ€ข our fractal trees planted in our bodies such as artilleries, โ€ข our conflict with antagonists and how to deal with them, โ€ข our growth over time, โ€ข our life trees, their timeline from dwarf trees to great heights exposed to the wind (with or against), and the โ€ข Challenges trees face and many more analogies. Your comment prompts me to start writing a series of buzzes on trees and what we can learn from them. A new journey starts.

Thanks Aurorasa Sima the conditions for this bubble to rise is still not favorable but I am gonna be around more often trying to blow along with the wind instead of against it :) Wow this is interesting too !

Dear Fatima Williams- the more I read your comments, the more I "read" you and admire your mind. This quote from your comment explains exactly what I mean and it is brilliantly written with adorable colors "In our life we need to take some time to see the colors in these bubbles and ensure that we blow them in conditions which are suitable for them to survive". Yes, this is to make bubbles that aren't.

๐Ÿ Fatima G. Williams

Like soap reduces the surface tension of water and stabilizes bubbles, we also reduce tension and create bubbles with shape and stability. You are one of the soaps that helps me shape my bubble in a beautiful shape , stable and colorful. I'm sure we've all had our favorite moments with blowing bubbles and have run around chasing them during childhood , I'd enjoy doing it even now. This buzz is of high calibre because it simply tells us where to look if ever we have been searching for answers as to why some of these bubbles we blew never survived. In our life we need to take some time to see the colors in these bubbles and ensure that we blow them in conditions which are suitable for them to survive. This will save us the trouble of complaining why our bubbles never rise. I wish that this beautiful colorful bubble of Dear Ali Anani floats across various bees and envelop their world with colors and enlighten them the way it did to me.Thank you

Just to tease your mind dear David Navarro L\u00f3pez dirts are mostly fatty. What a long fatty molecule does is attach it fatty part to the dirt and the resulting too fatty materials form micelles. May be dirty ideas form bubbles this way.

Chain reaction of ideas. Ideas that may be light or of little mass, but with high spreading velocity may have their butterfly effects and generate big impacts. I am reading the comments at dawn and enjoying them thoroughly with gratitude. I am still digesting them. WIll be back with more detailed response in few hours. If I feel "foamy" with little mass, but I feel myself running at high speed because of all your appreciation dears David Navarro L\u00f3pez and all dear commenters. I say I am blessed to have connections with you that honor me.

(it continues) Taking this analogy of the bath, negative ideas might destroy some positive ideas in a big mass of "positive bubbles", or just float on the top, depending on the density, but never becoming part of the positive ones. As I commented in the other post. I have never seen Ali producing "repellent" ideas, so I doubt that having such a mass os positivity, anyone can make a negative chain reaction on him. At the end, it is a choice. You can choose to treasure, copy and self-produceโ€‹ ideas based on the latter ones. The kind of the ideas, is only up to you

Sara Jacobovici to your words "How we can manage to minimize the destructive ones and support the constructive ones are age-old dilemmas." I agree completely. This is the key to taking real advantage of our potential of creating ideas. But I believe that in the question the answer can be found. Just doing as you said: minimizing the destructive ones and giving support to the constructive ones. Production of both kinds is going to happen anyway, so the option is treasuring the good ones until they have a summing mass big enough to avoid that lower mass negative ideas can make a chain reaction, due not finding resonating ideas. Having said that, it comes to my mind the image of a bubble bath. If you drop more soap bubbles on the top, they would accumulate. If you tear a drop of water or shaving foam, it has a different effect (to be continuated)

Part 2 The same 4 factors happened to be in Germany on 1919, and we all know how it ended. Paradoxically the French revolution was done using the "violence of the bubbles", while in Germany the "Fรผhrer" was legally elected. So it would be fair to conclude that if we are to look for a continuous grow, formation of "stable bubbles" would be the right option, but when a disruption is needed, then we should do the opposite. Considering the both disruptions of the near history of Europe, that having same ground factors, had completely different results, what could be the X factor which made the difference? For a person like me, with my convictions, the thing is clear. While french used freedom, equality and justice as fundamental values, germans used hate, revenge and proud. Low level X Factor gave low level results. In my opinion, this X Factor should be taken on deep consideration whenever we are forming stable bubbles or disruptive ones for our business.

PART 1 Since I read your post you got me thinking about it the whole day, my dear Ali Anani Some questions came to my mind, considering the possible parallelism between bubbles/ideas in connection with energy. There is always an X Factor which triggers the formation of them. Both saturation (self energy is created due to it) or a movement of its environment make them appear. Forming ideas and making them appear are then two different things which might obey as well to two or more factors. And the way these factors interact with each other can make it different. Putting philosophy aside, and taking real life examples of how ideas could emerge, we could take the French Revolution on 1789. Four factors, big social inequality, lack of resources/poverty, emerging philosophers with ideas about changing the "Establishment", and an unstable political situation created it. Many of the human rights as we know them today emerged from there.

As Aaron Skogen in the same way again. What strikes me in this particular Buzz is the diversity of the bubbles; from so many animals and species in nature, shapes, sizes, function....and so on. This supports the connection with creativity; diversity.

Again, dear namita sinha name to draw her attention of your mentioning her. When I smell a fragrant comment then I share the fragrance without much commenting so as not to dilute the fragrance. How beautiful what you wrote "Indeed, creativity, innovation, bubbling eccentricity and madness of creative minds as the world sometimes sees it, and the operational smoothness of implementation may seem like they are not the best of friends , but in reality they are both essential for long-term organizational success . Creativity always involves risk and uncertainty, and most managers are wary of this. And the bland reality is that most of them almost choke on radically novel ideas". STunningly beautiful your mind is dear namita sinha

Ali ๐Ÿ Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee

Dear namita sinha-incredible is your mind and the depth of your comments. I AGREE with what you wrote "here I would say the condition is to create and maintain organizational mindset (culture) that is willing to embrace risk taking and something of a temporary chaos and disorder"! It is the lack of imagination and sticking to the current reality, whether it is a false reality or not, that businesses lack. This mind set sees the outside of a bubble, but not its meaning or relevance. The result is as you outlined admirably "And all this sum totals to suppression of ideas or freezing of bubbles which in itself is self โ€“ destructive and counterproductive". The beauty of your tortoise example is striking. The conclusion you draw is consistent with what you exemplify Thus, we need to create a tortoise enclosureโ€”an oasis amongst the craziness of modern lifeโ€”to be a safe haven where our creativity can emerge." Words can't express my gratitude for enriching this buzz (the language of beBee) with such great wisdom.
