Ideas Metamorphosis




Metamorphosis is a biological process by which an animal physically develops after birth or hatching, involving a conspicuous and relatively abrupt change in the animal's body structure through cell growth and differentiation. Animals can be divided into species that undergo complete metamorphosis incomplete metamorphosis or no metamorphosis.

Bees undergo metamorphosis. However, the higher ranking of a bee, the less time it takes to complete the four stages of metamorphosis. The queen needs sixteen four days, twenty one days for the worker bee and twenty four days for the drone. Honey bees develop in four distinct life cycle phases: egg, larva, pupa, and adult. If interested, you may watch this lovely video on the metamorphosis of bees.



I find great relationship between the metamorphosis of ideas and bees. It is very difficult to find the eggs of bees laid by the queen. They are very tiny eggs. Only in very clean cells the queen may lay eggs. Depending on the size of the cells the egg will give a drone or a worker bee. It is amazing the customized production here by the queen bee whether to produce a female or drone bee.

Humans have ideas that may start as tiny as an egg of bee. For this ideas to grow and disrupt our social life I believe the idea itself should grow in phases into an insect-like. As long as the idea is small its value can't be seen. It may have been laid in the wrong cell and may not have the opportunity to grow into a queen. It must receive quality food so as to grow into a queen. The feedback human ideas receive and their quality shall determine into which type of bee the idea shall grow to. We may mistake the bee egg and find that the idea metamorphosed into a wasp, or even a caterpillar.

On beBee the bees are producing posts in huge number. Each idea is like an egg. Some ideas receive great number of views, but very few comments. Like many bees grow into worker bees, so are the eggs of new ideas. The beBee idea has started as a tiny egg with few supporters. However, the originators believed in their idea, laid it in the right cell and allowed it to grow to more than ten million subscribers within one year. It has become a platform with millions of cells. It is up to the bees (authors) to ensure they lay their eggs in the right cell. It is their responsibility to decide into which form they shall metamorphose completely, partially or with no metamorphosis at all. Luck has a role too. May be the day on which they publish wasn't a god day, or the bees were hibernating for a short while. It could also be the worker bees were cleaning their minds cache or the worker bees were busy foraging. If they are luckier, few bees will share their information "dance" to inform others they found a good post they can feed on.

Still, few bees can be luckier. Few bees could catch the post and add to it so as it grows into a larvae-like structure or complete the four metamorphosis stages and lead to a disrupting bee that attracts millions of bees as beBee did.

BeBee may differentiate itself by being a hive for metamorphosis of ideas. I suggested that a hive be established to cater for buzzes (posts) that prompted other bees to build on them and get enough inspiration to write an inspiring buzz for others. It is like a chain of ideas is building up, getting enough feed to grow into something unpredictable.

It is the metamorphosis of ideas that shall make beBee a highly differentiated platform

Javier C\u00e1mara Rica- believe me the more we know, the less we know. A buzz on what we don't know about bees might be worthy

Love your sense of commenting Catalina Serrano. I wonder if there is a fifth one to "steal" others' work. Lovey comment

Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee

You got me thinking dear William King and my response to his comment you provided a great example on how to improve ideas. Thank you William for you got mu as busy as a bee hive.

Your comment is a gem dear friend Qamar Ali Khan. You wrote very wisely "To day's information age has broadened our thought levels. We must leverage on that value. Idea should not just be a thought but betterment for others". You prompt me to say "β€œWe can not generate greater ideas with the same level of thinking that created them”. This is a modification of Einstein who said "β€œWe can not solve our problems with the same level of thinking that created them”. I am all the way with your comment

Ali Anani! This is a powerful post, compelling to think on what we used to think about. In my humble opinion, ideas must not be taken as mere ideas by the producer of the ideas. Any practical idea should have a relevance to something good, some improvements in somebody's life or a part of life. To day's information age has broadened our thought levels. We must leverage on that value. Idea should not just be a thought but betterment for others. Thank you my dear friend!

Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee

agree fully with you. . s bees we do it individually and by inspiring each other and pollinating each others' ideas. I am going to respond soon in a buzz in response for your "simple, yet probing" comment.

Ali Anani I am man of simplicity, and if at all someone gets inspired by my writings, then I wish to remain humble towards the Almighty Lord. Thanks for your kind words. But, the best thing is that I find a wonderful community here that listens to others and reciprocates with care. Let's enhance our writing dimensions, and make beBee popular platform. Let's translate amazing ideas into workable ideas for beBee...perhaps, devising strategies for broader reach. :)

For the burst of creativity, let’s have novel ideas, influence masses with our diverse and simple writings and bolster the audience for greater connectivity. That way we shall soon see beBee on the move towards expansive domination and success.

Little knowledge can be more dangerous than ignorance Sara Sara Jacobovici. When we know little we get confused and sometimes our search for finding why reveals new facts. yes, it is unpredictable journey. One issue that percolates in my mind right now is how bees in one colony will fight bees from other colonies. One way to make them live peacefully is to separate the two colonies with even a newspaper. Sooner, the bees in the two colonies get accustomed to the smell of pheromones and once the newspaper is torn and the bees next they don't fight any more. We have different colonies here on beBee. We have nations fighting and we may find the newspaper that allow them to live in peace and co-exist. Sometimes a newspaper is the solution that we are blind to.

I would not refer to your process of thinking and making sense of things as confusion Ali Anani. I would describe it more of an environment of creative chaos. I always look forward to the questions that come from there and the ideas that grow from the search of the answers.

Sara Jacobovici- if I claim I am not bewildered and ma also confused as much as you are then I shall not be honest. As you published this great response I was thinking of the behavior of bees and WHY they do what they do. Apparently, bees want us to think. There are so many behaviors that I fail to explain. re bees doing what they do for leisure? Pleasure? Or, serving certain purposes. I plan to write about this. It is amazing that in spite of so many scientific advancements that we still unable to offer many explanations of small insects like bees. What we have discovered is amazing; what we shall discover shall be even more amazing. For example, bees produce several pheromones (we don't know all or what they exactly do). May be a pheromone is the idea we are searching for. One pheromone (idea) to control, one pheromone (idea) to respond to needs and other ideas to serve other needs as outlined in your quality response. May be I am sharing my confusion than I am sharing my knowledge.

Love to read your thoughts and perspectives CityVP Manjit and I am about to read your Buzz. There is one point you make that I respectfully disagree with (a very rare moment indeed); "the 21st Century will soon have artificial intelligence creating new ideas". Not only do we, organic biological units not create "new" ideas, but the artificial intelligence devices that we have created, don't even carry the potential. We have the capacity to create from what does exist, and what does exist is infinite. Artificial intelligence devises can only use the finite, read limited, input from us. This is what makes these devices tools for us to use when we are creating the potential of "new" ideas. Forgive me but I am about to mount the proverbial soap box; it's time to put humans back into the equation.

I think it is amazing how you have just given life, and the cycle of life, to ideas Ali Anani. You have made me dizzy again in trying to catch up with the thoughts, images and reactions in me to your writing. If I stop and catch my breath, the first thing that comes to mind is the "why" of it all. Why do we produce the ideas we do? Bees (as other species) know the how, what, when, and where, but the why is different from the why of humans. Some ideas are produced to create; change, quality of life, some in response to needs; medical, technological, some to control; people or environments, some to profit; power and materialistic gains. Some ideas are produced for the sheer human pleasure of thinking. Rarely do we produce ideas in isolation, and here we return to the concept of engagement. That is "why" you initiate your ideas. I look forward to the ongoing and dynamic sharing and engaging Ali.

t is I want to travel - but this is not an idea I am spreading but it is a waggle. to an evolution that one day may happen- I agree and find your comment powerful CityVP Manjit or one of his team may tell their story.

There are reasons to spread ideas and among them are making a living or spreading an ideology. There is nothing new in the act of spreading or the intentions of marketing of ideas - what maybe new in the 20th Century is certainly the past today. What would be new is that unlike the past, the future is the creation of thinkers. Our thinking, our services, our education is largely the product of other people's thinking but the future - the one we now call the 21st Century will soon have artificial intelligence creating new ideas - so this deep learning empowered future is not in short-supply of ideas. So my thoughts today are traveling where it is I want to travel - but this is not an idea I am spreading but it is a waggle. to an evolution that one day may happen whether we spread or do not spread that future as a meme or by the tools invented yesteryear. In this regard I absolutely love the evolution of the bee and the video above brings the wonder of that to my eyes. What I relate to is the golden age that never was, but the evolution of which may be realized even if that evolution may take another 400 years : https://www.bebee.com/producer/@cityvp-manjit/the-honey-golden-age

Ali, I made a comment in your post suggesting the "Pollination Hive" that if this is a joint effort, I am willing to help setup the hive.

Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee

BeBee metamorphosed into a disrupting success and could differentiate itself by being a platform for others to metamorphose their ideas into big and disruptive ones too.
