Triads Are Everywhere

Triads Are Everywhere

My last buzz on "Love is to Grow Less" drew the attention of @Sara Jacobovici and prompted her to establish the Triad Hive. I believe this hive merits our extensive attention. Nature loves triad, and so we should do. Triads in music and math are well discussed here and you may enjoy in this reference how triads of music operate. You may be familiar with the fire triad. The imaginary Bermuda Triangle is another example.

So, what is fascinating about the triads? Why are they energetic? Triads aren't stable as changing their environment or structures mildly may lead to the emergence of new properties, new materials and new behaviors. If the triad is cyclic and not linear then it shall be stressed. Being stressed it desires to react to relieve the stress. They are not in their comfort zone and they seek comfort. It is this burning desire that make cyclic triads ready to react and produce very unique products with unique emerging properties.

To exist in an energized state is different from existing in a relaxed state. The motivation is internal for the stressed cyclic triad and is ready for change. This throws the idea that for a system to desire exchange it has to be stressed. Eagles master this idea. The mother eagle knows that her baby eagle shall not be willing to fly out from its nest being comfortable with no stress at all. So, what does the mother do knowing that at certain age if her baby doesn't fly it shall lose its ability to fly? Well, the mother stops cleaning the nest and brings badly smelling stuff to the nest. The smell of the nest reaches a point where the baby eagle becomes much stressed. At this point it has one option: to fly out. By the way- the image below shows a triangle on the face of the eagle.

Triads Are Everywhere

Chemists have applied the same concept. One group of closed triad chemicals is cyclopropanes (you don't need to remember the word, and just see their stressed structure).

Cycloprpanes have produced a myriad of chemicals that have astonishing shapes and repeating shapes like fractals. Copyrights are an issue, but if interested just click this link: There exists triangular molecule. For readers with general understanding of chemistry shall find this link exciting and even mind-blogging.

I want to conclude with saying let us form triangular triads and this effort shall ensure that we have a building structure that shall lead to the emergence of new fractals, new thinking, new approaches and rewarding ones too. I invite you to subscribe actively to the hive on Triads that Sara Jacobovici established. Here is the link. https://www.bebee.com/group/triads

Triads Are EverywhereWe have a great opportunity to build structures on beBee that no other platform has built or even thought of.

This is sheer brilliance Sara Jacobovici. I love your example for it is very profound. Well, that is your next buzz I guess. I address you as the thinker and this great comment testifies what I do. I am waiting for the buzz to comment more.

I just finished commenting on a Buzz by @Henri Galvao in talking about art. That made me think of a new triad Ali Anani. There is a triadic relationship among the artist, his or her creation and the viewer or listener of that creation. What is interesting about this triad is that the artwork spans the time between the process of the artist bringing the product into being, the person viewing or listening to the product of that process which then in turn becomes part of the process of the individual experiencing that product. In a way then, the boundaries of the triad are quite expansive.

I feel you have much more to say dear Hafida Benyoucef. Please do

Ali ๐Ÿ Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee

You are more daring than I Praveen Raj Gullepalli as I avoided using the word tessellation. I fely it might send the reader on oscillation. Yes, are are correct as the order in the chaos or may be (chaos in the order) slips our mind.

#44 Dears Gerald Hecht- I am looking now on hexagonal ice crystals and how they convert to triagonals. Amazingly, both shapes merge together to give void-free shapes and spectacular ones too. The explanation of why hexagons turn to trigonal has only been recently verified. There are many irregularities in the info as well. So many ideas are emerging and the pursuit seems to be a long one.

Glad you mentioned the Mandaladear Gerald Hecht. Having been (and still ) a good student Wikipedia defines it as follows:A mandala (Sanskrit: เคฎเคฃเฅเคกเคฒ, lit, circle) is a spiritual and ritual symbol in Indian religions, representing the universe. In common use, "mandala" has become a generic term for any diagram, chart or geometric pattern that represents the cosmos metaphysically or symbolically; a microcosm of the universe.

Gerald Hecht- this link is so rich with lovely sound patterns from nature. I bit you shall love it http://davidpratt.info/pattern2.htm

:))) Then how about bebe or bibi Praveen Raj Gullepalli

Ali ๐Ÿ Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee

Have a Kiwi dear Praveen Raj Gullepalli to find a LinkedIn substitute, but will it work to make the de-link between Anees and beBee?

I still hope you do dear Praveen Raj Gullepalli. Comments scroll down and soon shall pass unnoticed. Sometimes, we need to collect them and show the linkages among them. Your comments are valuable and are worthy of "good treatment".

Ali ๐Ÿ Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee

Yes, dear Anees Zaidi. We call kids coupling agents or the bridges. If the bridge is weak, the whole system is weak then.

Ali ๐Ÿ Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee

A new triad just crossed my mind. We say in science there is no real bonding between two parties; it is stronger between three. Let me explain. A wife and husband might have a conflict and divorce. However; if they have a kid then divorce becomes more difficult because both the father and the mother care for the kid and the kid knows that his best interest is for his parents to stay together. The triad of wife-husband-kid becomes powerful.

I swear to God I too froze upon reading the word pregnant in its context from the great comment of Praveen Raj Gullepalli. I wonder if Praveen would expand his comments into a buzz with illustrations. That should be a powerful one. Please do, dear Praveen

Dear brother Anees Zaidi asked on what topic or project our Three Musketeers Triad would work on. I guess it is this topic- the relevance, importance, applications of triads. I don't know if this idea would appeal to you or Sra, but after all it is a suggestion that came out having read your excellent comment

Ali ๐Ÿ Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee

Amazing and amusing your comment dear brother Anees Zaidi. You just clicked on the human triads (body, spirit, heart) or other combinations. Yes, we need to freshen our thinking about triads even though many of their secrets are not revealed yet. Sometimes ambiguity becomes an element of attraction

Thank you dear brother Anees Zaidi, which inspired me to coin the term "Music of Science", how triads interplay to create tunes never heard before. Simply, we are just scratching the surface of the iceberg of triads right now

Ali ๐Ÿ Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee

For beautiful fractals examples and explanations based on triads you may enjoy tremendously this link. It is quite enriching to the mind and heart. This is what I coin now "Music of Science". http://www.fractal.org/Bewustzijns-Besturings-Model/Fractals-Useful-Beauty.htm

Pascal Triangles are amazing and I invite dear Gerald Hecht to read the link in my previous comment as well as this one. I know he shall find the material well-composed to compose his beBee musical: http://www.slideshare.net/ayeshazaheer12/cell-division-and-pascal-triangle

Ali ๐Ÿ Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee

One very interesting examples of triangulars is triangular numbers. Birds fly in triangular numbers formations. It is a string example. See: http://www.shyamsundergupta.com/triangle.htm

CityVP Manjit- for no reason I woke up. I read joyfully to your comment and feeling more alert. Well, just as a quick response. I fully concur with you this time. Triads in social media show this reality as not all of them are closed triangles and your explanation is perfect. We need energized and restless groups and their behavior is certainly different from open ones. Extroverts are more likely to make closed triads rather than open ones as introverts would. I enjoyed your reference in these cases to dyadic relationships. One point that deserves great attention is your saying the triad sides may be a book and not a human. It could be a passion as well. In fact I published a presentation on this possibility and you are spot on. The presentation title is Social Network Analysis of the Intangibles http://www.slideshare.net/hudali15/social-network-analysis-of-intangibles

The imagination of chemists have been alive and well from the early days of alchemy trying to create gold, and when I read the link to cyclopropanes, it simply underscores for me that the imagination of chemists are now extended by possibilities of synthetic biology, and the link speaks to natural occurring cylcopropanes in the area insectides, anti-tumor agents and while it is good to discover what is carcinogenic, there is plenty of scope for imagination in healthy and non-toxic triangulation. When I am reflecting like I am here I am engaged in a monadic relationship. When I am with family members I am in a dyadic relationship and when I am encountering a work problem a triadic relationship exists with the third piece either being a human being or a book, or even three people having a triadic rather than dyadic relationship. When things get to and beyond a quadratic relationship things become very complex indeed, and for an extrovert that is a much welcomed complexity. Yet so many of us are introverts and this is a relationship dynamic that has a cyclopropane toxicity to it, in that the synthesis is assumed to be extroversion. That is a great and fundamental oversight of the human condition and it is not something that may be solved or transformed even in my life-time. Why? The group continues to be the dominant synthesis. Relationship at an introvert level can benefit from the triadic, but it is even more powerful at the dyadic and monadic levels. The triadic and quadratic extrovert already has a world tailor made for that affinity. Know the relationship and individual and this is entirely different kind of chemistry. It is the kind of chemistry which may open the door on our collective humanity, but who is to say when the relationship of chemistry for the human race has been the group and in the age of networked intelligence continues to be the group.
