Chasing the Shadow of Human Behavior

Chasing the Shadow of Human Behavior

A comment by @Lisa Gallagher on my previous post on "Merge to Emerge" was the urge to write this buzz. @Savvy Raj showed her genuine appreciation by commenting "@Ali Anani it is a treat for any writer to be valued for their consistency as we are only human as dear @Lisa Gallagher has reflected in such a heartfelt earnestness and so in deep humility I thank you for all your generous reflections in inclusivity.

Were humans created from clay? And if so, which clay? That humans were created from clay finds support in the analogy of the chemical analysis of clays and the human body which shows close similarity. For me, the greater analogy is in the fractality of both clays and human bodies. Clays show fractal structures and so the human body. The repeating units forming clays are fractal and so the human body is.
Humans vary in their characters and clays vary in their structures and behaviors accordingly. The clays have charged sites allowing them to accommodate oppositely charged bodies in between the layers and on the externally charged ions. There is no guarantee that the same clay will have the same ions always and therefore clays have varying properties. Humans are charged with varying views and emotions and are subject to absorbing oppositely charged ideas or replacing old ones with new ones. Can a varying structure show a consistent behavior? No way, and I wonder if we would ever witness a consistent human behavior.

Chasing the Shadow of Human Behavior

Clays are of varying origins and types. They might form in place or their particles get carried away by wind to deposit I foreign lands. They are subject to changes like humans who migrate from one place to a foreign one. Clay experiences cycles of heat and cold weather. Heating clay may fracture it.

Chasing the Shadow of Human Behavior

Fractal structures are endless as the more you zoom in, the more shall you discover. This issue is further compounded by the fact the fractal structure is variable because it may host different elements and so the prediction of behavior becomes more uncertain. Humans with varying structural fractals will be very complex to predict accordingly.

As much as it is difficult to predict the human behavior, some similarities with clay behavior are astonishing. For example, a soil with slight amount of clay is identical for crops to grow because clay particles keep the water nearby the root. However; clayey soils are improper for crops because clay particles are stiff, sticky and prevent air circulation around the roots. It is balancing in action. Human behaviors that go to the extremes are similar in that they become harmful.


"Is it far from random that clay particles exhibit fractal distribution and therefore fractal dimension? Is it the balance between none or all? Is it also the human behavior of wanting all (egoism) or nothing for me that throw humans out of balance and forgetting that behaviors should have a fractal dimension"?
Ali Anani, PhD

Clay particles tend to Clays often form colloidal suspensions when immersed in water, but the clay particles flocculate and settle quickly in saline water. Does this explain why humans in general tend to flocculate and settle quickly when going through saline experiences?

Our bodies are fractal and our emotions are charged like charged clays. When charged we absorb things we don't normally do and our structure changes and so our behaviors. Are we then in a position to predict human behavior with any certainty? I doubt for even when we try to locate a behavior we affect it and change it. Is this the Human Behavior Uncertainty Principle? I tend to say yes.

Lisa Gallagher- I dedicate this buzz to you for being a lady of consistent understanding and support of others.

I imagine watching you in video narrating your comment dear Deb Lange and I hear the music in your comment. Yes, we are rooted to earth and it is where we came from and where we shall go. Down to earth is what brings us in the flow and away from it is a recipe for failure.

And your comment is so balanced my brother Anees Zaidi. SOmetimes we only appreciate the value of being i balance after we go to one extreme. Fractal you are

I am not returning a praise dear Sara Jacobovici by saying that one certainty is reading probing and relevant comments and buzzes by you. This one is in accordance of what I am saying. Yes, you are spot on and actually might be the root cause in my situations. Your writing "I would like to add the subjective factor of meaning as a variable in the Human Behavior Uncertainty Principle", you remind me of my post on what is love? The meaning of the word uncovered many different subjective factors and I have no choice but to fully agree with you.

The only certainty that I can predict Ali Anani is the level of your thought provoking writings. This one is no exception. The degree of unpredictability in regard to human behaviour is that no matter the "consistency" of the material humans are made of, it is the unknown meaning that humans give to situations and interactions which lends to the unpredicability. I would like to add the subjective factor of meaning as a variable in the Human Behavior Uncertainty Principle.

That is a witty response Sara Jacobovici and you never disappoint me. Yes, if there was another guest would the same thing happen? I have to test this idea on me.

I thank Ali Anani. I have no doubt that the interest in Dr. Ali's writings draws your attention there and beyond the happenings around you. Yet, I would have you ask yourself; would this behaviour have taken place if there were another guest, someone else, who holds a different role or relationship with you compared to the individual who was there at the time? After all, as adults we are able to delay our gratifications. I think it's all based on the meaning we give to the situation.

Clay teaches us how to balance dear Lisa Gallagher. For example, it takes water profitably to a certain extent, but more water and clay becomes troublesome. So, when you write in a balanced way "I'd like to think of myself as clay dough, easy enough to mold by means of learning new ideas, not becoming stuck in my ways and strong enough to hold firm to my convictions just like the clay that dries" in fact you are teaching us how to balance. Great inspiration from you Lisa. I admire your mind..

I'm happy my comment inspired you to write this Ali Anani. I learned things about clay I never knew before. You're so correct, we can't predict human behavior and we can't mold another's behavior (unless it's a child) and we softly caress that 'clay.' Children are much easier to mold in both positive and negative fashions. Adults become stuck in their ways (many) and we aren't as permeable as we were as young children. I'd like to think of myself as clay dough, easy enough to mold by means of learning new ideas, not becoming stuck in my ways and strong enough to hold firm to my convictions just like the clay that dries.

I love comments that give different perspectives. Your comment falls in this category dear Joanna Hofman. I feel human behavior is like weather very difficult to predict except for short time spans. The point that captured my attention is predictability can be boring. This is a unique perspective.

Your questions are so deep and your observations are so mature dear debasish majumder. I loved all your questions, but the one that left me wondering is this one "s n't a matter being fluid having the kinetic motion with adequate strength to induce us to imbibe"? I thank you not only for your very kind words of appreciation, but more because your comment sent me into deep thinking. I feel something is about to emerge. This comment shall reside with me for long times to come.

I took a breathing minutes while my guests were praying to respond dear Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD. Now, I leave the amuse to be a "fly" on my wall. I hope a bee will replace the fly!!!! Seriously, I enjoyed the profoundness of your comment and I am sharing the amuse of your subtle phrasing of the comment

Franci Eugenia Hoffman- this is beautifully written by you "Individuals have inconsistent preferences". You consolidated my belief of the preferences uncertainty principle. Simple ae your words' powerful are their meanings.

The great poet Savvy Raj-with a "handful of reality" your comment is amazing. Yes, nature is constant may be in repeating patterns that are not identical. No leave is like another, but there is a pattern in their distribution. This is the music of nature.

Franci 🐝Eugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand Ambassador

I tend to say yes, as well. Individuals have inconsistent preferences, which are subject to constant change. Even if not contradicted consistency in one person as not the same as another person. Your statement "I doubt for even when we try to locate a behavior we affect it and change it" indicates to me that behavior is constantly varied and there can be no certainty in predicting it.
