Ideas Rippling Effect

Ideas Rippling Effect

This buzz marks my publishing the hundredth buzz on beBee. It is about time to pause and think about my experiences and highlights over the last seven months.
Are my buzzes worthy? Or, are they like sand grains get carried by the wind and soon lose their value? Some ideas may receive immediate rejections; others may enjoy acceptance. Those ideas which are rejected may be the ones that will leave a mark. How many ideas were rejected but they stood the test of time and were reborn. On the other side, there are ideas that were widely accepted only to be refuted afterwards. Some buzzes attracted many comments while others received much less attention.

I view each buzz of mine as a sand grain on its own. The windy discussions blow the sand grains. This reminds me of ripples in sand found in many places like beaches with their spectacular self-organizing patterns. The wind blows sand grains and it is the interactions among these grains that lead to the formation of their distinctive patterns. The wind is the blower of the grains, but it is the interactions among sand grains that count mostly. Two grains might be very close together; yet their trajectories may divert beyond imagination. However; these grains self-organize in pattern depending on where they end up falling such as a beach or a sand dune. Enjoy the video below on patterns in sand.


An individual sand grain shall not make a pattern and so collecting selected buzzes in an e-book means putting many sand grains (buzzes) together. If the wind of discussions blows the grains of buzzes then who knows if a pattern would emerge? I therefore encourage authors (bees) not only to publish buzzes, but also to house them together. This documentation may help make the buzzes grains get blown so that their hopping and leaping may produce new self-organizing patterns. I have this habit and I have collected my last thirty or so buzzes in an e-book titled "Cycling of Ideas". This 110 pages e-book is a collection of sandy ideas hoping that they shall emerge in new patterns of thinking.

I read a very interesting metaphor for ideas in that ideas are like sea turtles. I extract the following from the post "As I was watching those sea turtles, it struck me…Those sea turtles are like my ideas!! Β There they are, described in nature better than any words can articulate. They hatch and race ahead until they are battered and tested. Β Only the strongest reach their destination". My ideas struggled individually upon publishing each one on its own as a buzz. Let me see how they struggle collectively.

I hope that you blow my mind with your feedback, but more to blow the grains of my sandy ideas with your criticism, suggestions, comments, reviews or whatever. The least is that a pattern may emerge.

100 buzzes calls for a blockbuster party Alan Geller for this bee here has produced some sweetest honey on beBee and made us bees like family. You buzzes are not only spring Mr Ali Anani but are the 4 seasons, cause that's the effect they have on us, it's like even before spring is over I can feel autumn setting in, I can't get enough as time passes so quickly. It is so true that you are prolific and forgive me for having not consumed all of your brilliant buzzes as yet, but I will in time( giggles).A time capsule/e-book with all the buzzes really ?? I'll be the first to get my hands on them. I want to Thank God dear Mr Ali Anani for giving you the heart of sharing, sharing your ideas with us. And then for allowing us to have known you , for there are a very few like you here on earth who are so equanimous and gracious to share a little piece of themselves to the world. Ideas are like a grain of wheat, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains by itself alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit. For with an idea another one and another one are born, similar to that of your buzzes. Like the grains on the sands of time that are tossed into different beautiful patterns. If we keep our ideas in our head and do not bury them into the sand , they will not get the chance of being tested with the wind like you said,they must get battered and tested and finally blown to the formation of a unique pattern created by time & nature itself that which is now beyond oons. Congratulations on this mighty 100th Buzz πŸ…πŸ…πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ…πŸ…

Harvey Lloyd- I bow my head in respect of your comment. It is extremely valuable. Your writing "Time evolves us, but the principals of life stay the same". This is a wonderful statement. I fully agree with you that a buzz or comment in the right time and when we are on the edge of a state a nudge-a mere nudge- may send us into unknown paths. I feel the nudge of your comment right now

I have enjoyed the few posts I have read and see that you seek deeper meaning within your posts. A post is just in time supply management. The difference, you are uncertain as to where the supply is needed. I can discuss with you philosophically your thoughts and how they may awaken my own or possibly I am at the edge of forming a perspective and your post will nudge me a little right or left. Sometimes that nudge is subconscious and I may not even know you nudged until three days later. Wisdom is a timeless need. Time evolves us, but the principals of life stay the same. Thank you for yours and congrats on your 100th buzz.

Thank you Pascal Derrien for being honest. I appreciate your comment and hidden amazement that an old man runs so fast. But it is the reason why I am writing frequently as I am not sure for how long I shall be living or able to write. It is also for this reason that I am compiling my buzzes into e-books, which interested readers can download free.

Your poetic comment is amazing my dear Irene Hackett. SO interesting is your writing I am always intrigued by the graceful way you bring scientific thought into a whirling 'dust storm' of social interaction".

100 buzzes, congratulations Ali Anani!! The grains of sand may represent each idea that runs through your mind, some idea's stay put and others travel with the wind? Many of your buzzes are born because of one sentence someone may right, like a ripple effect, like that of the sand. You amaze me with how fast you can pull idea's together. I love that you feel sea turtles remind you of your ideas too. The quickness and only the strongest survive. I have watched them hatch and go off to sea. You're so right, they have to get to sea before they are eaten by predators. Your mind is able to generate ideas faster than the quickest sea turtle. Your writing never ceases to amaze me. I loved the video, whoever put that together did a great job. The video allowed me to dream a bit. I shared this to LI and now will share it here and on twitter!!

Dear Ali Anani for making a connection between us in this way. I look forward to reading your book (and getting a personally signed copy of course) and relishing in the pleasure that I know the author.

Dear Milos Djukic- only yesterday a publishing house contacted me and urging me to write a book based on my buzzes. Now, and very powerfully, you urge me to do the same. Thank you and you know that you are, and truly are, the scientific engineer with a human face. I am NOT returning compliments and I believe that you are in the same boat. My late father's wish was that I write a book. You may Google his book The Gulf Arabs. So,, with all these calls I stand confused not only by your appreciation, but also by surprise. If I write a book would I find the time to write buzzes and make comments? I shall give great attention to your idea dear Milos. If I say you made me speechless I am only honest

Dears CityVP Manjit- thank you see much. I find myself in a new paradox is that I enjoy your comments without having ever played cricket. The way you explains timelessness dear Manjit is superb. That I love and enjoy comments on a game I am not aware of (except from an Indian movie) is the true reflection of the clarity of your minds. I am learning from your comments. I hope Sara Jacobovici is awake by now to start her day reading your appreciation and kind words and also to share the lovely load of your kindness (another paradox for Sara). hTank you again dear friends

Dear CityVP Manjit- "May your innings keep scoring and your thoughts keep soaring". This is what you wrote coming from a gentleman who himself is keeping his innings scoring and his thoughts soaring and roaring like heros. I appreciate your support, taking me sometimes into mysterious trips of the mind and imagination my friend. How could I not appreciate your kind words? We planned one time that Sara Jacobovici and myself to work on a book, but life drifted our courses, but not our god feelings and respect to each other. Sara is one of my top list without questioning.

Once again my comment regarding one of the best LI articles by Ali Anani entitled:"How Opportunities Emerged from Difficulties?", published on Jul 30., 2015. (https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/how-opportunities-emerged-from-difficulties-ali-anani-phd?trk=mp-reader-card) "Dear Ali Anani, there are a few writers here on beBee and LI who have never "disappointed" me. These are very important observations of a shining scientific mind. Your way of thinking and the act of creation reminded me of one of my all time favorites: Werner Heisenberg. What you write is just like a continuation of his key book: "Physics and Beyond: Encounters and Conversations". I just hope that your multidisciplinary approach to scientific thought and philosophy will be recognized as an extremely advanced, innovative and valid. I think it's important since the real contribution of this article is not possible to comprehend without some great attention and very careful observing of complexity of your way of thinking. This is a characteristic of all great scientists. I think it is time for you to start writing a book. A great persons deserve no less my dear friend Ali." I hope all my wishes will come true. Your writing has surpassed all known social media. You remind me of Carl Sagan. Sincerely. Milos

Dear Paul, there is the splendid innings and there is the timeless innings, the timeless kind that is recorded such as Sir Gary Sobers https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4JGdMKWZi7A What I love about Ali Anani's posts/buzzes are not just the quality of his batting but also the timeless nature of his posts, just as we can today revisit Gary Sobers at his finest. One can enter them at any time and see for oneself their timeless quality. The other part one notices is the wonderful relationship that unfolds because the great hitters also have their great partners and when there is only one hitter the team is out. There are various partnerships of note but Anani and Jacobovici stands head and shoulders in terms distinction, and for the best part of time sense is the emergence of anything that becomes timeless. Ali Anani batted at LinkedIn, he now bats at beBee - as a Middlesex man, I am not going to pick hairs whether less informal Uxbridge https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rDdRFGTEAUc or formal setting ofLords is best https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZUg92yj1_ZI - it is when we are watching the great play their innings we do remember - it is more than just "well played" but a huge "thank you" from all of us who appreciate and we are still appreciating.

In cricket everybody in the stadium stands up an applauds to the rafters when the batsman is 100 not out. May your innings keep scoring and your thoughts keep soaring. We are all blessed at beBee to have your great presence. I know your first reaction is to pass the compliment back, but like a noble cricketer, this is a time to stand and take in our collective applause. One day I hope to read a book written jointly by both you and Sara Jacobovici - and that would be a great highlight in my own learning journey. I focus here solely on the personal rather than the professional - but you and Sara have the right mix that actually speaks to what beBee is hoping to be. So come in for tea, because there is breaks even great batsmen and then I will take my place with the other Bees in the Ali Anani arena and applaud all the new strokes, all the new plays and ultimately this is a salute to one of beBee's emerging greats.

Dear @Ali Anani, I have been following you since at least January 2014. and the incredible amount of wisdom I have seen of you during this time is something I have not seen before, and I am proud to be counted as of one of your friends. Said that, and at the sight of the enormous amount of different issues you point to, the normal thing to say would be "Write a book". but in my opinion, after all this time following you, a book would be too small to cover all the different issues you point. At the same time, I find it is a shame that all of your wisdom and inspiring ideas are hard to find them all in a single point, so for the ones who have the privilege to follow you writings, and for the people who would in the times to come need an inspiring mind to follow and to learn from, my advice could be: Please, produce your own blog, on which all of your wisdom and inspiring ideas would be available, independently of where you publish them. As an example, many people at Bebee are enjoying what you write here but missed the enormous wisdom shown at Slideshare, LI, or others. Sorry to say that, but such a prolific, inspiring, and talented person should have his own wisdom network, and in my opinion, ​it would be a sin from you allowing that all this would be lost in the sand of time. You know I am saying this from the deepest and honest admiration.

Congratulations on number 100 Ali Anani! You moved me with your ideas as the wind moves the grains of sand. The wind is the artist in the video you share, but you are the artist on beBee. In this way your Buzzes form new patterns in my mind. The link that I provide here shows a man, an artist who makes patterns in the sand: "Earthscapes: Art that Goes Out with the Tide - For Andres Amador, the earth is his canvas, literally. Instead of paintbrushes or pencils, Amador uses garden rakes to create beautifully crafted designs in the sand. From his hands emerge bold graphics, symmetrical sequences and organic patterns." I can rewrite this and say: Ali Anani uses ideas to create beautifully crafted designs in the reader's mind. From his thoughts emerge bold ideas. http://view.bebee.com/?u=aHR0cDovL3d3dy5rYXJtYXR1YmUub3JnL3ZpZGVvcy5waHA/aWQ9NTM3OA== Looking forward to the next 100 Dr. Ali.
