Emergence and Interactions

Emergence and Interactions

Is there a difference between a person living alone in a place and same person living with thousands of other people in same place if the community doesn’t interact whereby every person lives as if he/she was the only person in the place?

The essence of a community is interaction. The greater the interactions are, the greater the likelihood that something will emerge from somewhere. We can see this on social media where interactions can be quite activated sometimes. So many emergent phenomena and trends emerged consequently.

A bird flying alone is different than same bird flying with flock of other birds. By following simple rules in their interactions we may notice the V-flying pattern that emerges. In a soccer stadium if one spectator waves his hand nothing shall be noticeable. However; if waving the same hand is synchronized with the timely waving of the neighbor’s hand and then the next neighbor we may notice the emergence of a wave. Bacterial communities are dominated and shaped by socialΒ interactions, which facilitate theΒ emergenceΒ of properties observed only in the community setting. Protein-protein interactionsΒ involving intrinsically disordered proteins are important for cellular function and common in all organisms. Again, EmergenceΒ and evolution are the result of interactionsΒ between intrinsically disordered proteins.

It is the interactions of individuals that led to the emergence of the Pareto Rule or the 80/20 Rule. Life is unfair for the more interactions humans have the more likely are the few will get richer and the poor shall get poorer. Will this lead eventually so the poor will go on riot and take the society into disruption and self-organizing? May be this explains the four cycles that human societies experienced over ages. The intellectuals who spend most of their times interacting with ideas reach a scientific breakthrough. Entrepreneurs with sharp eyes for the potential acquisition of these ideas grab them and run successful businesses and accumulate wealth and Pareto Rule applies. This leads to social upheavals and then to force law to protect the interests of the rich. Once numbers of people involved in social upheavals increase and reach a critical mass disruption and re-organizing of societies follows.

Disruption is noticeable mostly in human societies. We don’t see disruption to any similar magnitude in the bee’s societies, ant societies, fish societies or other societies. Is it because these creatures have the purpose of survival gluing them? Paradoxically, in human societies we notice that when they threaten their own survival that they start to self-organize.

Human interactions are shifting the trend to the tails of the power law distribution. It is not enough to be average. It is safer to belong to either the lucky powerful few or the few who have the brains to distinguish themselves as niche. With the increased levels of human interactions I suppose this trend shall strengthen. Are we entering the age wherein it is safer to stay away from the crowd of averages? Survival is not being in the crowds, but away from them?

I look forward to reading your thoughts.Β

thank you dear Yolanda \u00c1vila - Kaizen Proyectos. You are a very thoughtful person. Statistics say the the few pioneers (mostly 2%to 3%) may change the world. At the very bestv15% of the peoplevwill follow them. These two groups of pioneers and early adopters will have the burden of jumping the cusp. Yes it is the few determined people who may change the world.

Thank you dear Ali, I appreciate your kindness. I agree with you, we need to keep the balance between opened and closed doors. That’s key! :D

Yes Lupita \ud83d\udc1d Reyes. It is important to have our authencity, but also it is important to polish and grow it through constructive interactions. We need to be alone dometimes to pause and think. Equally, we need to interact with others. I read yesterday a lovely buzz by Joyce \ud83d\udc1d Bowen Brand Ambassador @ beBee on closed and open doors. We need to close the door and also to open it other times. I learnt by being by myself locked in a room or walking in nature. I lear nt also through my interactions with super people like you Lupita.

Ali \ud83d\udc1d Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee, great buzz! It’s quite interesting, in fact. In my opinion, it depends on what you want, your goals and mainly, your power of choice. While one of us might be happy being alone most of the time, maybe other needs way more interaction with people, either virtual interaction or in life. It is much better to be the cause point of what we are, what we do and what we have, than only being the effect of others or the circumstances around us. Agree?

It is you dear Tausif Mundrawala who opens windows for new perspectives. I am indeed thankful to you and also for sharing the buzz.

Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee

What I like about your comments Tausif Mundrawala is that they bring new perspectives/ examples. Here I attend to your writing "It starts from home where the family works together to live peacefully and achieve common goal". I couldn't agree more. One emergent phenomena of human interactions is culture. I could rephrase your comment to culture at home. The way family members interact will eventually lead to the emergence of a certain culture. Family members shall then interact with others based on the culture prevailing at home. I may dare to say that a poor culture at home will reflect on our behavior at home. People coming from such cultures shall do the same at work such as bringing irrelevant discussions or trying to impose their ideas. Creative people will tend to come up with "ideas in the tail" not because they are aggressive; more because they are imaginative and see beyond the average.

great thoughts CityVP \ud83d\udc1d Manjit. You make a great point that even famous scientists may oppose in-the- tail ideas. The first paper on the Butterfly Effect was rejected few times till was accepted. Sometimes we are dragged by what I call The Force of the Average. You Vgreat explain in very simple and practical way why organizations are learning ones. Because we may forecast the weather in California we may not do the same with same predictability inToronto. One has near-average weather and the other goes to the extreme. But we learn. The first lesson we learned ironically is our realization that our predictions may go wrong. And even when we may make better predictions something rare, but extreme would happen like an earthquake. Simply we have one optimal choice- to keep learning.

thank you Isabella M H Wesoly. It is for this reason i call for the exchange of ideas and your comment is the example of what I mean. What emerges at the end that average ideas give average priducts. Ideas like those of Steve Jobd come from the tail. They are the disruptive ones that create new realities and new lives. You remind me of another example about the discovery of America. One reason that this country has been exceptionally fertile is that people who migrated there had to deal with new lives, new challenges and new responsibilities. They were immersed in waters far away from their average depth. They were near the tails. Does being in a tail position call for in the tail solutions? You make me think my friend.

you know your deptbh is fascinating Joanne Gardocki. The oscillation of population betwee prey/predator is smashing observation. Yes it is an emerging beha vior. On the ants and bees it is again that the capacity has its force. When a bee hive gets crowded the scouters look for new locations. Do bees fight over who leaves and who stays? Not to my knowledge. It is a form of self-organization. In forests when a tree gets very high and may obscure sunlight from other trees voluntarily it stops growing vertically; rather it makes its stem thicker. It is taken care of self and other that may make us realize the limited capacityvwe have and so self-organize.

Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee

I love your thinking and suggestion Joanne Gardocki. Yes, it isbetter to have both individuality and sociability. I agree fully and this is better than separation thinking meaning this or that. I checked the connection to the bacteria research and surprisingly it is missing even though the abstract still shows the summary of the research. I also thank you for spottong the light on the comment of . It is worthy.

I have met the intellectual who was too smart to handle delicacy of their sensitives and who have to resort to drink (alcoholism) in order to shield themselves from their own capacity for felt-experience. I have seen the innovator shunned for having a thought that was ahead of their time and even Benoit Mandelbrot was pillared and mocked for originally voicing his mathematics he called fractals. Over time the intellectual alcoholic may find a way of adjusting to their feelings, the innovator become realistic about human capacities for tolerating change and the scientist whose name is rescued from the scrapheap of history. All of this is also a part of emergence and interaction. This is why we both embrace the word paradox and more to the point why we welcome life as a producer of variety. For sure when processes become extreme, there are societal adjustments, whether they be war, revolution, disaster or politics. Then there is the emergence of our humanity, which is very nascent and at a very early development - one that will face its true first test when artificial intelligence itself emerges. What lies beyond these emergence's are infinite possibilities. As future tellers we can only make predictions that will look ridiculous when the future that we predict actually emerges. However at the personal level all of this is an investment in our own individual learning - and here within us, we shape that emergence or the emergency we create from it.

good point and question Debesh Choudhury. When I consider forests and how they prospser after a huge fire blaze. I may say that the value of life becomes more evident. Forests and human societies may share here the same experience. The heavier the price is, the more life and sustaining it become valuable. After the World War 2 and Hiroshima humans learnt so many lessons, but only having disrupted life extensively.

Excellent "buzz" @Ali Anani (@ doesn't work with a "bee" in between the names) .. Human interaction brings disruptive change in human society, that doesn't happen to the animal colonies. But who will survive more years? Humans or the animals?

Very true what you said . There are people glued to their mobiles interacting with the virtual world because they feel lonely. Even at home, we may find wife and husband not talking to each other, but both busy seeking a way out of their loneliness by contacting old friends or virtual new ones.

Good, inspiring post! There are more damaging divisions and doldrums that are happening in this surpassing age of media, and the proof of this is that we oftentimes see people living in vicinity and still are drowned in anonymity. With scanty or no interaction, people, in fact, live disconnected lives.

Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee

Yes dear Debasish Majumder- you bring good points. Let me say first people will change when they feel the pain of the current situation is greater than the pain of change. They trade more pain for less pain. However; is the reverse true for changing in good times? The answer is reflected in your comment. Human interactions lead to asymmetry and the luck ones tend to flock alone.

nice proposition sir Ali \ud83d\udc1d Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee! in terms of intellectual prowess, it perhaps yield loneliness. more we reach high, we tend to remain isolated, which can act as a bliss for us. unless we align with the same wave length, we remain away from the ordinary folks, equally that of the birds which are seen in the sky. surely their numbers are meager comparing to their whole fraternity. but perhaps they equally align with the same feathers, means feeling comforted with the group they are flying. even the advent of social media gives comfort to one who is alone aligning with many of same wave length in the virtual world. however, lovely buzz sir. enjoyed read and shared. thank you for the buzz.

That's the first thought that came into my mind when you said the average depth is 170 cm. I thought, what if the person happens to reach a spot (basically waddle to it, since they can' swim) which is deeper than 175 cm? For me, the answer lies in your question, either that person should not go into the water body at all, as they don't know how to swim else, maybe add themselves to the niche, people who brave the waters with floating tubes and life jackets.

Great points Proma \ud83d\udc1d Nautiyal. if somebody's height is 175 cm and can't swim. Is it enough for him to know that the AVERAGE depth of water is 170 cm and that he can swim safely. What if the maximum depth (the tail) is 185? Will he survive? Sometimes we sink in the average. I do appreciate your thoughts.

I do believe in the theory of finding one's niche and sticking to it. Being average is not a bad idea. It provides safety and security. As they say, with great power comes great responsibility. People who like to live a comfortable life in their own space, just like everyone else (in their community) can happily do so. But for those who thirst to stand out of the crowd and embrace power and the ability to do something better than the average, then that's fine, too.

I don't think it is about making definitive choices its more about being in the right crowd with the right to withdraw when it suits me thinks but what do I know I have the brain of a goldfish :-)
