Spilled Ideas

Spilled Ideas

As I was sitting in a coffee shop a customer ordered fresh milk. The shaky hands of the customer spilled the milk over the place. Not only it is of no use to cry on spilled milk; equally true is that the milk will not refill the pack on its own. This state of disorder is a fact of life.

Out of nowhere I found myself substituting the pack of milk with a pack of ideas. In the shaky minds those ideas shall be spilled over the place and gone to waste. To be living is to produce order out of disorder. Equally, is to create lively ideas from scattered ideas. Is this a paradox?

Living plants depend on converting water diffused in soil and scattered in air, carbon dioxide gas whose molecules roam randomly in the air and sunlight to produce sugar as a source of stored energy. From the disordered reactant plants produce the highly ordered sugar molecules while dissipating heat to the surrounding. Plants store order and export disorder.

For us humans we might be doing the same. I experience this process on beBee platform. I give example of what Sara Jacobovici is doing. For her, she considered illumination by solid comments as her source of sunlight. She collected the scattered thoughts in comments as her sources for chaotic and free-roaming ideas as replacement for the water and carbon dioxide in plants. From these resources she managed to synthesize sugary buzzes that are filled with wisdom. Here is one of Sara's recent examples representing her orderly output. Part Two: You can take science out of philosophy, but.....

As plants release heat and oxygen to the surrounding so are good buzzes. They generate new and scattered thoughts in the environment for other minds to synthesize into another chain of buzzes. Writing this buzz is inspired by Sara's recent buzzes. These buzzes are the starting ideas for new buzzes. The wastes of one buzz are the feed for new buzzes or chains of buzzes. In her buzz Sara quoted one of my comments "In a discussion that was taking place recently on beBee, Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee wrote; β€œβ€¦the many buzzes that we inspired between us I shall not be surprised to read this chain "A post on a post on a post...." forming" The natural polymer of posts". I am actually living this experience. The sugar that Sara produced is reacting with itself to form polysaccharides. These polymers tend to form helices. I look forward to witnessing the formation of helical structures out of these exchanges of ideas.

beBee is a living platform. It allows us to be exposed to the illumination coming from great minds and the initiation of the process similar to photosynthesis. The more we exchange comments, the more illumination shall come by. Comments are our source of illumination as sunlight is the source of illumination for plants. It is within this context that we prove our value as living minds. In my comment on Sara's buzz mentioned earlier I wrote "Then I stopped for I realized our inability to add illustrations/images to comments. I wonder how feasible it would be if we could add illustrations with comments. May be @Javier beBee would consider applying this crazy suggestion. In no time Javier responded "@Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee it is not crazy. We will add a lot of new features. For example replying as a rich article instead of a short comment, and a collaborative publishing platform. All great tools are coming along this year :). @Federico Álvarez San Martín. There shall be very limited exchange of comments without such support from beBee top management. No wonder beBee is advancing very rapidly. No wonder we have very little spilled ideas on beBee platform.

I welcome your illuminating comments my dear readers.

I say if I write a buzz that helps somebody improve her/his understanding then the effort is worthy. I am happy that an intellectual like yourself Joanne Gardocki finds this buzz useful and therefore I am much more than simply satisfied.

Thank you Sara Jacobovici. Mind you in few minutes I shall upload my new buzz "Spontaneity in Human Relationships" in which I refer extensively to your last buzz and our exchange of comments therein.

Thank you Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee to my attention. Both of you gentlemen have left me nothing more to contribute. Very dynamic discussion. On a personal note, to show you how old I am, I took my introductory course in abnormal psychology at McGill University in Montreal with a professor who was one of Hebb's students, Dr. Ronald Melzack.

Indeed I believe so Ali. Similarity of intergration configurations materializes common ground - people, concepts and spaces.

I am elevated with your comment Ian Weinberg. To give a scientific reasoning to the buzz in such a powerful way is truly satisfying. I have a question for you and I may be off track. When two people "dissolve" in each other does that mean their firing of neurons iat the same time means they fired together and so they wired together? Is this the explanation of synchronicity? You open my mind to many possibilities with your wonderful comment.

Absolutely spot on Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee ! Neurons that fire together, wire together - Hebb's rule. This is the foundation for neurological integration. Individual neuronal clusters representing specific concepts, when triggered, resonate with other simultaneously triggered clusters and so a new, more representative cluster is created. And so the process continues - ever more representation by less clusters through a hierarchical integration. Value out of chaos. Bravo Ali, your inspiration is rallying a collective integration.

I present you with fresh bean back. If I ever meet you in person Aaron Skogen I know what present to give you. I appreciate your very kind words. I am relieved. This buzz received the minimum number of comments among my almost 200 buzzes on beBee. I started to wonder if the buzz makes sense. Your words have the nectar of black bean.

Honoured to be mentioned in your buzz in so many positive ways Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee. For me, I am enjoying the real time affinity that is taking place here on beBee; I am engaging in a love and passion of mine; philosophy. I am grateful to be exposed and inspired by your thinking and writing Dr. Ali and to be part of a dynamic and diverse group of people, communicating and expressing their thoughts and insights. All this is happening as I gear up for the business end of things which I will put out in the hive that is beBee. It's all connected; I find very little is wasted.

figure of speech or maybe uniformity in the texture (yes I know this can be argued) allowing to pursue the exploration of an idea from a breadth and depth perspective ?

Why is it black concentrate Pascal Derrien?

Personally I don't do milk or sugar coating as I tend to focus on the black concentrate in the cup :-)

Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee

Dear Sara Jacobovici- your last buzz is highlighted in this buzz . Dear Javier \ud83d\udc1d beBee- the last section of this buzz is about you and beBee platform. I hope you find it useful.
