Curled Emotions and Experiences

Curled Emotions and Experiences

While drafting a buzz on water surface tension as a metaphor for human tension a new idea emerged. This temporarily shifted my interest to the idea of this buzz. Just by looking at the photos below you may observe what is the common denominator among them.

91e3f98f.jpg

It is curling up into ball shapes. Many livings species shape into balls. Some plants do. Few animals do. Few humans curl up into a ball while asleep. Water drops, and soaps roll up into balls. Few marine species do. Why is that?

There are joint factors between most of them. One factor is the tendency to curl up when exposed to danger. It is not only flight or flight; more a third option is available to curl up into balls. Another factor is for the balls to have the minimum surface area to volume ratio and the fear of losing water through evaporation is minimized by acquiring a ball shape. It is a fear-based shape- the fear of losing water.

Forming into a ball shape allows some animals to roll down a slope very fast and run away from their predators. Many plants have leaves that curl up under stress. It is amazing that humans behave similarly. Some people tend to curl up while asleep under stress. Interestingly, curling up during sleep reflects on the mood of the sleeping person. Studies have shown that our sleeping pattern reflect on us. Of interest here is curling up while asleep- it shows the sleeper is seeking to return to their comfort zone after a stressful day. People who have the habit of sleeping in this pattern are found to be tension-sleepers because they over worry and like to stay in their comfort zone. They worry for fear they might be forced out of their comfort zone. It is not only body language; it is also the sleeping language. The higher the knees and lower the head the more internal comfort these people get because they fall more into a ball-like shape.

4e3a2177.jpg

The question that overwhelms me- plants, animals and some materials tend to curl up into ball shapes- where they did learn the same trick to avoid predators? I mean tangible predators and the intangible ones such as anxiety.

Cats tend to curl up when they are afraid. Why some of us tend to curl up while asleep?

Some plants curl up for the whole summer to conserve water. They open their leaves during winter. The fear of losing their water keeps them folded for months. Other plants like the sensitive plant behaves very strangely. Not only of its ball-like head, but also of the behavior of its leaves. Touch one leaf gently and it shall fold inwards. Now, moving your hand to touch many leaves these leaves shall fold inwards and the hidden thorns shall appear. This plant reacts to calculated risks as the reaction to danger is proportional to the perceived risk.

579dfdb3.jpg

We need to learn from nature. There are hidden facts that shall only emerge when we unfold β€œour leaves of ignorance”. We don’t want our minds to curl up into balls and do nothing. Fear, anxiety and demotivating emotions might put us in this state. See beyond anxiety and open your mind to new possibilities. Curling up is stressing. When we feel stresses our toes curl under. Your foot has a strange shape because the muscles, tendons, or ligaments that surround your toeΒ aren't balanced. This causes theΒ toesΒ to bend in an odd position. Relax and free yourself of anxiety.

0d4694e0.jpg

@Amy L Thome wrote a heart-touching buzz. In the background image of the buzz the quote by Roald Dahl "...the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places". I say don’t hide your problems in secret places because this shall only lead to curling up on self and suffer from its prolonged stressful effects.

Great buzz, great thinking and soul-illuminating byΒ @Clau Valerio
"Sorry = strength. The images are outstanding, and the meanings are admirable.
Patience and tolerance are considered important values ​​to some extent. However, when someone harms or harms us, responding with patience and tolerance seems to transmit weakness and passivity. This is one of the main reasons why it is so hard for us to forgive others".

680f6adb.jpg

We don’t want to live a stressed life like a scared rabbit living under stress. When rabbits are stressed, it often shows. Separate to sleeping, the mostΒ visibleΒ sign is a rabbit who has curled up, with their paws tucked in underneath them and ears hanging down. Breathing can also become quicker.

Uncurl your life.

haha...I looked it up: it's considered an offensive term these day - my bad! It was meant to denote my lack of skills in comparison to Lada \ud83c\udfe1 Prkic's greater command for language and sophistication. ''The term characterized farmers having a red neck caused by sunburn from hours working in the fields. A citation from 1893 provides a definition as "poorer inhabitants of the rural districts...men who work in the field, as a matter of course, generally have their skin stained red and burnt by the sun, and especially is this true of the back of their necks".[9]'' Wikipedia.

Maybe you are correct concerning the word love. But love is representative of the broader human condition of life meaning. Its merely a discussion concerning a perspective of this condition and how we interface with the reality. I agree its all a bit philosophical in nature and to some degree weighty in concept.

Great point and I don't dispute it. This is exactly what I am writing in my next buzz. For me, when love exceeds limits and go beyond the extreme it generaties what I call "antilove" feelings. These include jealousy, possessiveness and the tendency to protect and control the beloved ones. Divorce has many reasons, but sometimes over-jealousy becomes the antilove poison. ANtiloves is coined in emulation of antifragility. Here, love makes us weaker than when we started loving. I shall explain in my next buzz what I mean.

yes this rabbit hole runs deep and rightfully as you state clarity is lost. I do not profess to be in or out of the hole but rather a observer phenomenology Divorce rates depression and opioid addictions here represent relationships breaking down into the loss of β€œthat loving feeling” If this is the case then love the noun β€œfeeling” is not being met by the verb I also sense that the rise in the need for β€œemotional intelligence is related to this phenomena I am like you in the sense I am conscientious as opposed to openness so I am very much aware of cause and effect.

What to say. My mind doesn't work that way. I always strive for clarity without the use of profound-sounded phrases, generally speaking.

As for your experience with dragons I find great lessons from them. AT least, you influenced my thinking.

Am i worthy to the challenge. My stint with corporate America did not need well. I was cocky and thought that if those idiots could do it so can I. This sounded good as i walked out the door of the large conglomerate of a utility company. So with 2,000 in my pocket and enough apathy to make millions i began my business. Apathy gave way to tunnel vision of success and then the stark reality of who the hell did i think i was. Who in their right mind would find confidence enough in me to write me a check to perform a service? It was three years in the dragon pit of slaying dragons of self confidence, secretly. The whole while i was presenting to others this false narritive of success. This dragon alone nearly killed me. But with the help of a few key people and mentors they began to shape my Excalibur. The sword that would create the path out of the pit. It hinged on a single thought. Regardless of who we are we all seek answers to questions posed by ourselves or environment. Success was in figuring out the question and answering it in a way the customer could find security. Sleepless nights of studing this doctrine lead me to many successes. Make no mistake it is a journey through the Black Forest. Slaying every self generated demon one can imagine. I would not change the path for any other.

I would say in this context we curl up in response. Yes dragons beget dragons. With each door we pass we see the world differently. What was past slayed dragons are revived with new understanding. (Our uncle though has created boundaries whereby dragons are not an issue. The world is closed in and rigid. No doors, no journey merely the perfect defense.) Curling is the limbic system response to challenge. Our mind is the weapon we have to deny the limbic systems auto response. But the limbic system is formidable. It gathers all of the sub conscious thought of what could go wrong. Our higher thinking needs to provide the things that can go right and most importantly provide the alternative of doing nothing. I may only have a 2% chance of slaying the dragon, but doing nothing holds the truth i will either die or fight everyday the same battle. This alternative is null. With each days battle of 2% chance there exists a future where wisdom will prevail.

I think you described it well. The possibilities are endless beyound the dragons of the mind. With each we slay the turning becomes easier. We now have the key to chaos and its exploration. My challenge is always the alternative. We only have one of two ways to approach things, curl up and make ourselves small or, with humbleness, draw Excalibur and slay the dragon that we have created. Each has its merits within the moment. The choice establishes the dragons we fight tomorrow.

Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee

#97
When you refer to the mystical dragon you remind me of the mystical dragonfly, which represents our ability to go in many directions, see many possibilities, explore, sense and hover like a helicopter. So, they aren't the same and that the dragon that developed into a dragonfly learnt it lessons in life. A mi correct?.

The mystical dragon is an ageless concept that captures the rolling thunder of thought within the universe we call the mind. Amazingly the dragon is what we deny, blame others for, or simply learn to cope. But he is but a beast of thought. We have the Excalibur to slay the dragon. But if it dies then our mind would be lost within a vacuum. Our way of life somehow changed to infinity. What lies beyound? The dragon represents our fears within the present while blocking any thoughts of the future where we survive. Once we slay the first and survive we begin to understand the landscape of wisdom. The dragon is only the key to the next door. I dont think the fairy tales of old were far off the mark.

Emotions lead to actions. Love is a strong emotion and therefore we feel its actions. So is hatred and other emotions. I believe within this context emotions may be considered both as noun or verb.

Not wrong in context but as we live love it is the verbs aspect that we experience. After the experience we use it as a noun to describe the experience. Hollywood and media have shown us actions that have defined the feeling of love (Noun). These actions when presented to us, by whatever means, defines the noun in our senses. I have never gotten in trouble with the noun. But the verb has gotten me in plenty of trouble. This is more a thought experiment as we look at life and use the word love. Mainly to ask the question what have i put in my bucket where the noun draws the verb to action?

Harvey Lloyd

No disagreement here. Webster did get it right. In reality though we experience love in action. We see hear and feel the act of love and describe these actions within the concept of the noun. Actions define the definition of the noun for each of us. A TV show, movie or personal experience filling the love noun bucket and eventually we have a personal definition of love. We experience love as a verb and describe it as a noun. Would the noun be relevant if first we had not experienced the verb?

You said again dear Lisa Vanderburg "Holding a life is love is illusional...a responsibility that may belong fleetingly, but I have to be reminded constantly, is NOT my job - it's God's". This is consistent with my previous comment addressed to you. So, even love needs protection by something larger than us and outside us. You show great brilliance in these comments even if love fainted your heart sometimes with responsibility.

Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee

#84
You bring to our attention dear Lisa Vanderburg a new paradox "we put into jeopardy what we seek to protect". I may add sometimes we may cause those we love to hate us. This happens when our love becomes so possessive that we try to control or protect those we love. They get annoyed and even may become antagonistic to us.

I love you means love is a verb Her love is.. means love is noun. This is a challenging idea Harvey Lloyd. If I consider love as a verb only then my most read and commented on buzz here @beBee means it is wrong because in it I asked what is the opposite of love. I have even to reconsider writing my next buzz. Even in your comment you used the love as a noun "i expose my heart of love". In this context love is a noun. Still; it is a challenging comment because the love of love is reflected in our behaviors. So, love produces action and in this sense it is a verb. Need to assimilate your comment.

I was listening to a Clinical Psycologist on the YTube and he told a story about his nephew. It may apply here. He visited the boy and the family had said he was having night terrors. Waking up screaming in the middle of the night. One morning at breakfast he opened up a discussion with the young child about his terrors. He explained that he wakes up in a field and these round blobs are coming after him. He takes his sword and kills them but they just keep coming. He said that last evening he looked up and there was dragon spitting these things out that were after him. The Uncle said then what do you have to do? I must slay the dragon. No night terrors that night and the child came to breakfast happy. He had to inquire about the dragon and the child merely stated β€œhe’s dead”. Moral here. Sometimes we are slaying the small stuff while we igonore the dragon that is expelling all small things. Find your dragon, you know what you need to do. βš”οΈ

Love is a verb. Its not a noun. Love describes an act of selfless giving with no expectations of something in return. In relationships we tend to use the word love as a noun and expect quid pro quo. But think about this context. How i define love within the noun is quite different from how my wife defines it. So can quid quo pro actually occur. Through acts of kindness that evolve from deep understanding of my wife’s need i expose my heart of love. SHe is willing to let me carry her heart and her mine. Doesn’t mean i dont drop it sometimes. But we always self correct and laugh once we are past the cleaning up of the heart. This is called life. No perfection, just plain living with the curly hairs that show up over time in a fashion of trust.

Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee

#81
Dear Liza- your comment reminds me of sweet things turning to toxic if allowed to go beyond the extreme. Love is one example as I shall show in my next buzz. Sweet roots may turn toxic because we allowed things to go beyond our capacity and thus allowing them to turn direction and interest. For example, with extreme love we may feel we own the other person. This feeling of ownership may turn into a desire to control the beloved one or to overprotect him.her. The beloved one soon starts to get annoyed by our expressiveness to control and/or protect and starts stepping away. Love has its own toxicity. Most likely our friend CityVP \ud83d\udc1d Manjit will not be in agreement with me.

It takes men of pure hearts to give words to entities such as love and trust; I couldn't define them better as you and Ali #79 did.

The love to which you speak, Agape, is direct propitiation to the level of faith an individaul has gained. Fear and faith can not share the same space. I know and admire these same people.

I have always thought of β€œtrust” in two ways. There is covenant trust. Then there is the trust we speak of, Heart Trust. I mean the heart in biblical terms. Covenant trust is what we experience in the world within agreements and covenants like wedding vows. Heart trust is a relationship where you can share your fears for what they are, a person attempting to work through issues. Myself, i only have one other, outside of the wife, that i have this style trust. But this trust is usually only available through a relationship where love exists. Is it reliable? If you dont rely on it then it can never grow within its shared wisdom. So no the fear can make it unreliable. The alternative to reliance though is a rough road.

Extreme love is agape, but while i have found a few people who love without condition, invariably because we live in a conditioned world, we have conditioned love., Harvey, one thing that I have been privileged to see is extreme love in action, agape in the full sense of that world. The step beyond Agape is God but I cannot conceptualize the ultimate nor entertain the many prescriptions for what others think God is, for it is beyond my human ability to know - but agape love, that I have seen and it is a very humbling experience when one is witness to that human being with the capacity for this extreme love.

'Love in its extreme form is β€œpure grace” to another while the giver has no judgement. For man i dont feel we can offer this up in any real form with longevity.' That's the cruncher that erodes; as you say, 'we are broken', Harvey Lloyd. My 'love' is undoubtably tainted. It's judgemental. I cannot in truth say otherwise. When I look at [say] those lovely images of Mother Theresa or read her works, even her capacity for selfless love is still limited to this 'human-suit' we wear. Moreso, if we think we can stay pure under duress, we'll make even more mistakes. That will have a knock-on effect until somebody pulls out or worse. So if we go into a situation knowing it'll evolve/devolve and be in constant flux AND realize we are far from perfect and will have horrid selfish thoughts, only then can we have a hope in hell of even trying on someone elses shoes. Sure as dogs go under porches to die, we can NEVER walk in them!

I am so glad that I invited you to the discussions dear Lada \ud83c\udfe1 Prkic. I understand you very well for being originally a materials scientist I spent lots of time working with engineers. Yes, when we are fatigued by fear and anxiety we curl up like slab concrete does. You remind me of my the thought of my daughter Sara when she was very young. She told me one day "dad, because I love you so much I stopped loving you". Now, I understand better what she meant. Because I used to travel very frequently she was always woried about me for fear something bad would happen to me. That fear made her bent curl under tension. Thank you dear Lada for your great comment.

Interesting question indeed. One of the greatest examples of the curled structure is the steel and timber bridge over the Grand Union Canal - the Rolling Bridge. It's indeed an engineering feat. https://youtu.be/x0Dj7XA77hw But, we can also see the curling deformation on concrete slabs, thin-walled steel structures or metal cladding, as a response to loading but also to temperature. It's a tendency of a structure to shift when in either tension or compression. When it comes to plain concrete slabs used for pavement, for example, it results in fatigue cracking due to temperature curling, i.e. differences in temperature between the top and bottom surfaces during the day and night. One thought came to my mind while writing this - fatigue occurs when a material is subjected to repeated loading and unloading. As for humans, it means repeated exposure to stress in life. If humans tend to curl up under stress, what the curling process means to our fatigue resistance? What is our fatigue limit before starting "cracking"?

I am glad i brought a smile. Coffee in the morning with my wife is where we slay the dragons of yesterday to sharpen the sword for the day we find ourselves. You post about Split was heart warming as it told me that others seek this beverage of choice within enlightenment. I feel less alone in the world. Although i enjoy the enlightenment aspects within my personal stage, it is becoming obvious that enlightenment is something that must be metered. Information overload can bring one libation in lieu of caffeine. I have conjured pictures of setting within the metaphorical Split and absorbing great understanding.

I reread your comment and it dawned on me a great statement within β€œfear of love”. This really may point to something within our consideration of love. Love is the absence of fear within a relationship. But this, as usual, brings us back full circle to the thoughts of eliminating fear from a relationship. The reduction of fear would also imply the increase in trust. You provoke some interesting thoughts here.

I believe Randall Burns gets us started on determining the differences between dialogue and conversation. I converse about topics that i do not have complete understanding. In an effort to explore concepts between different people. Dialogue is a pointed discussion where knowledge is at the top of concern. Generally meaning that points and counter points are displayed by knowledgeable people. I prefer conversation where i need not be an expert but submit my thoughts as any other would. To solicit feedback in like manner. Non competitive if you will.

Love is a very challenging topic. From my perspective i can only witness β€œacts” of love. From this i can only interpret the meaning of the act from my own narritive. Given this position what can i compare love to? My narritive is subjective to the experiences and 1st principals as i interpret them. This leaves me with only metophor to describe that which can not be seen but only felt in my own unique way. Your word β€œextreme” as an adjective is a bit challenging also. Man is broken. We are capabale of love within a limited scope. By broken i mean we really cant cast ourselves aside for another. Externally it may look like we are, but internally there is turmoil that we must digest. Love is an ongoing process where we really see commitment to its end. Sometimes this love is hiding and others it shines like the brightest star. Love in its extreme form is β€œpure grace” to another while the giver has no judgement. For man i dont feel we can offer this up in any real form with longevity. But Hollywood has offered us a love that only offers up the physical aspects of love. Pain and suffering and total bliss. The closest we get to this pure love is within a child’s eyes. A love that we can interpret what those eyes tell us in only a reflection. This reflection fades as they begin to form their own thoughts and opinions. Love changes at this point to grace. A grace that we see the future of a new being seeking its own understanding of love. Our love is in sharing that journey.

According to this: https://goo.gl/7693Bq the difference between dialogue and conversation is dialogue is somewhat planned and usualy between two bodies.

Extreme love is an example. Like all complex systems we have now a new and challenging situation being far-from-equilibrium, commonly know as staying on the edge". This time staying on the edge of extreme love. Either the system emerges into a new and self- organizing structure, or collapse of the love shall happen. It is finding the organized zone in the chaotic region of extremes. Your comment is fascinating and I need a dedicated buzz to respond adequately.

Extreme love is great but only a few people are capable of extreme love for the rest of us we mostly live in the fear of love. You have just featured the link to @Lisa Vanderburg and Lisa is a good example of someone who epitomizes extreme love. Extreme love is the testing limit whether it is love or an illusion of love . Love cannot distance us from reality because that is not love, people who lack that reality maybe doing something in the name of love but it is not love, it is an illusion that we feed. In their song "Pride - In the Name of Love'" U2's chorus says it all : "in the name of love, what more in the name of love". https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ByuyP1PNqKQ It is not a given that anything that goes to the extreme is bad for us, but we are not ready for a world with extreme love - many of us cannot handle the mildest form of love. When love is a possession or a drug or a fantasy how can that love be real - for real love will test us and for must of us, it is beyond our emotional and physical capacity, so we settle for the illusion of love - and that is why I hate personal brand with a vengeance, because it is a denial of that which is true. Our body itself is designed with many curls that give us more real estate rather than less, whether it is the folds in our brain, or the curly weave of our gut, we constantly underestimate what nature has bestowed within us - and love is no different - for love to travel the globe, it must curl around it or it is lost in space.

I believe i read many moons ago that sleeping on your back meant you were assertive. Side sleepers are confused and stomach sleepers are followers not leaders. I probably butchered the real thoughts but that is the gist of my understanding. I don't put much credence into these psychological readings of humans in the natural habitat either. I also read those folks who wear gold watches are more successful than those that wear silver:) But the best of all is those who drink coffee in Split are wise and calm.

Dear Ali, this is a very interesting idea for a buzz. You have a multi-track mind that takes your thoughts in many directions, from one buzz idea to another, always producing intriguing posts and combining seemingly incompatible ideas. One question that came to my mind is how accurately can sleeping position give insight into someone's personality. We change body positions many times during sleeping; we curl, roll out, stretch. I am mostly a stomach sleeper but many times wake up in different positions. So is with foetal sleepers. Personally, I am not a fan of such psychological theories, and I am not convinced that one's personality can be deduced from it. But it's just my opinion. An interesting thing about dogs is that they, like humans, have personal preferences when it comes to sleeping position. PS: Ali, I wonder what your comment threads would look like without Harvey's relevant comments. :-)

What a beautiful line, uncurl your life. Babies generally cuddle and curl up in their mom's lap, the place of ultimate warmth and comfort. The lap's their safe place, away from all stress. I totally agree with the point about curling up toes in moments of anxiety. I myself have this case of overlapping toes, almost all the time, because of my anxiety issues. Now I understand why keeping them overlapped makes me feel calmer and in control. Thanks for this interesting buzz, Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee!

In the old days when i traveled with construction crews this was always the statement of warning.

I love your comment Harvey Lloyd. There is always a gem in any comment that you write. This time my gem is "The one capacity that humans have that animals don't, we can evaluate the fears we experience and have attached emotions". This is a hugely relevant point. We may fill a wooden barrel up to its shortest stave. No matter what we try unless we elongate the short staves the capacity of the barrel shall remain the same. Fear and negative thoughts are mostly the shortest staves. WE need to rethink how we see them if we are to increase our capacities. A filling comment by all standards.

When the predator sees the prey it sees lunch. But this is narrow view of the natural aspects of natural actions. Predators evaluate their abilities, size of the lunch and the amount of effort they will have to expend. Giving way to some primitive conscious thought about the next move within survival. Nature offers us a macro framework that we can add complex consiousness. The one capacity that humans have that animals dont, we can evaluate the fears we experience and have attached emotions. Fear and its cousin anxiety are alignments of thoughts where we get eaten in someway. Do we ever evaluate past experience where similar things happened and we didnt get eaten? The predator eventually gets hungry enough that the evaluative process ends and they begin to take risk. Again as humans we have a prefrontal cortex. We need not wait for situations to become epic before acting. We can establsih order within the anxiety and begin working outward to subdue the the predator we have conjured. When we make ourselves small our hope is that the predator will seek a larger meal if they are going to take the risk. You dont need to be the fastest runner when escaping the bear, you just need to be faster than the slowest:)
