The Fractal Ambassador

The Fractal Ambassador

I was honored this week by beBee team announcing my appointment as beBee ambassador in Jordan. As much as this is an honorable assignment; it is equally important that I have to reach up to its responsibilities.

Many thoughts crossed my mind. Plants don't move. They depend on self to make their food, reach water, carry on their duties and orient towards the sun. To be able to extract the maximum of their efforts they have fractal roots and fractal branches to reach resources needed for photosynthesis. Not only have the plants provided equal opportunities for their leaves to get exposure to sunlight, but also to cover the maximum surface area possible to reach water and minerals in the soil.

We humans are not different. In essence we are fractal bodies. Our lungs, blood vessels, brain neurons and the whole nervous system are fractals. Our lungs look like trees if we flip the original shape. We find that we have trees planted in our bodies.

The Fractal Ambassador

Trees breathe and we breathe through lungs with structure-like trees. Because of this fractal structure even though a pair of human's lungs have around a volume of five liters; yet the lungs cover areas approximating fifty square meters. Our lungs know how to deal with crowdedness and do that with admirable efficiency. We complain about lack of space and yet we have fractal systems in our bodies covering huge areas. There is a way out of space limitation.

The ideas prompted me to think of myself as a fractal ambassador. I see ambassadors are tree-like fractals. I have the ambassador tree planted in me. Trees produce leaves and fruits with shapes and characteristics of their environment. The question then is if I may create an inner environment conducive enough to produce high quality fruits. What environment a mi going to create inside me? Is it going to be an environment that allows for the growth of a tree with thorny spike, or a tree that shall yield high quality fruits that appeal to the consumer? Being fractal means I must show integrity, replica of self and deviating from that I become a distorted ambassador. Equally important is that I also create a healthy microclimate so that a desirable tree may grow inside me.

To be an ambassador is a huge responsibility. An ambassador should not look at his responsibility through the eyes of lack: lack of resources, lack of support and lack of ideas. A tree-like ambassador may cover huge areas within very limited space. It is feeding this tree with positive ideas, emotions, engagement, breathing ideas and expanding the tree roots that the limited becomes fractally unlimited.

Thank you dear debasish majumder. You remind me of a great point. A fractal alone different from fractals feeding back to each other. The human body has many fractal structures as the nervous system and vascular system. These two have fractal structure and if one is affected it shall affect the other fractal. Fractal to fractal feedback deserves a deep searching. The fractal brain is feeding other fractals and how much can we explore is beyond imagination.

Sara Sara Jacobovici- I am reading again your last buzz on Exploring Imaginative Ideas and this paragraph drew my attention: One skill that we acquire is the ability to imagine. According to Michele and Robert Root-Bernstein, (2009) imaging is the most important thinking skill we acquire for creativity. They define imaging as the ability to recreate sensory impressions and feelings in our minds in the absence of external stimuli. We can alter, combine, synthesize and otherwise manipulate sensory images to form images and ideas of things never perceived in reality. This adds great value to my response to the comment of CityVP Manjit below

Your comment makes the flow inside me as natural as flowing water. You watered my moral with your great support dear Praveen Raj Gullepalli

Thank you so much dear Sara Jacobovici and I am truly blushing. Just to add a little info, the thickness of all branches almost matches the thickness of the trunk of a tree. This is not very commonly known. As for your writing " I see a person who is generous to share the fruits of your wisdom" you are very imaginative. The fruits we produce in shape and color reflect our inner selves. THis is one of the buzzes I am planning to write about. Thank you my friend for your immense motivation

Thank you dear CityVP Manjit for your question and congratulations. I would have placed and distributed the ambassadors letters in the two wings of a butterfly instead of lungs. This is to emphasize the title of the buzz. The nodal and fractal-like distribution also serves in pointing that if we change the letters positions new things may emerge; same like moving a node. The lung as well a butterfly have two wings with the right one using real numbers and the left one imaginary ones. This is how Mandelbrot used complex numbers (real + imaginary ones) arrived at his strange attractor. I redrew the background image to make these points, hopefully, clearer

You continue to touch me with your beautifully expressed and generous responses Ali Anani. If I begin to put together an image of you as an ambassador based on the qualities you have written about both in your Buzz and comments, I would say that you are a deeply rooted person with strength in trunk and courage to branch out. I see a person who is generous to share the fruits of your wisdom while offering a safe spot in which for us to rest and reflect. You are grounded yet your ideas and imagination can take flight and cover much distance. Most of all, you are a breath of fresh air.

First of all congratulations Ali Anani on becoming a brand ambassador ! I do have a question about this buzz and perhaps I am missing something obvious, but I am trying to figure out the letters on the fractal lungs - do they represent ambassadors or is there another meaning to the letters?

Thank you dear DILMA BALBI and my heart thrives on your appreciation. You have been a great influencer all the way.

Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee

I say dear that when we are genuinely emotionally evoked, the best terms emerge. This is evidenced in you coining the term "Ambassador for life". What a lovely expression. If I am what I am it is because of people of your quality are around my friend. Your comments, thoughts and appreciation fill my heart with love to write more. You share the "boat of love" and fractally unlimited are my thanks to you

I opted to change the background image so as to accommodate the lovely comments so far and show my appreciation for them

"You take us to a whole new world every time you buzz your heart out". dearest Fatima Williams and not Sara. I understand the confusion because both ladies make tremendously moving comments. I fail to express my gratitude to your trust and a bigger hug for you.

Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee

What an inspiring comment you wrote dear Claudio Vetica "This means that the evolution seems random but in reality evolution are lead by beautiful and organized structure". I wonder many times if structure is emergent one and being so organized amazes me. You make me think.

First, a mighty big hug and a hearty congratulations to you Ali Anani for becoming our ambassador so to say beBee ambassador. You take us to a whole new world every time you buzz your heart out. You are going to be a tree with a millions branches that will provide a resting place and will live in the hearts of us, bees for years to come. The indelible influence of work speaks for itself. I love what Sara said about beBee and that's the way I feel about beBee "As branches serve as a resting spot for birds, I look at beBee as my comfortable spot to rest and take in the gentle breeze that surrounds us all." Thank you once again.

You described fractals so eloquently Ali Anani. You made a great point about expanding the tree roots which made me think of how important it is to treat others as equals and in turn, help each other flourish. As branches serve as a resting spot for birds, I look at beBee as my comfortable spot to rest and take in the gentle breeze that surrounds us all.

You are very correct and this buzz of Sara Jacobovici is a special one. I might sound biased in my opinion because she mentioned me in the buzz, but this only adds honor to me and should not stop me from inviting all serious readers to read her genuine buzz.

You know Ali, a friend of mine talked to me about fractals more than 20 years ago, and since then I have always found fractals everywhere and I see life in very "fractalicious" way. So your comment is very very special for me, and more special if it's possible as it is coming from you. Thanks so much, happy happy happy I am.

You are very correct dear Mamen Delgado to say "I feel beBee as a fractal entity with own life growing and feeding itself from such a diversity of cultures and knowledges". Yes, and the keypoint here for me is own life. I love your sense and I find your comment not only a fractal smile, but also fractal of sensibility

My dear Ali Anani, I feel beBee as a fractal entity with own life growing and feeding itself from such a diversity of cultures and knowledges. I know what you mean about the responsibility, and all I can tell you is that you are not alone, we are all the same entity, the same lungs breathing this honey air and the little cell I am in this huge being feels immensely happy about the cell you are and the rest of more than 11 millions of cells by the moment, and growing... All my love.
