What Is in My Cup?

What Is in My Cup?


It is amazing how life rotates us in different directions. One day it swings up upwards and then downwards, or rotates us clockwise or anticlockwise. I feel we are the cups on the Lorenz chaotic wheel. In this wheel we have buckets attached to it. A filling pipe fills the buckets with water. The buckets have holes in the bottom of them so they are continually losing some of their water. The filling of the buckets depends on what speed that wheel rotates and thus how heavy the buckets on one side of the wheel outweigh the ones on the other side. The wheel turns in the direction of the side with the heaviest buckets.Β  If the buckets are a lot heavier on one side, the wheel turns very quickly and in so doing, the buckets passing under the fill pipe gather very little water. There are forces in play as well such as friction.

You may see the water wheel rotating chaotically in the following video. No matter how hard you try to predict the direction of the rotation your predictions shall be chaotic. It is like the chaotic prediction of "price rotation" in the stock market.


It occurred to me that many of the forces that act are like the buckets on the wheel. However; the buckets are not filled with water; rather with different materials. The filling pipe could be more than one pipe with different filling materials or the same pipe could have alternating filling materials.

Let me explain by example- population density is affected by two clusters: human factors and environmental factors. There are several factors within each cluster. Imagine now that the buckets are filled with these factors and try to guess to which direction the wheel of population density would rotate. These factors don't operate in isolation and affect each other. The weight of the factors and their emptying rate shall be among the factors leading to chaos. If population density is that complex, is it then possible to plan for them linearly?

This simple imagination makes me coin the term "On the Perimeter of Chaos". If the wheels filled with water only experience so much chaos, what would be the effect if filled with different materials? Let me visualize the situation in a simpler way. If the four tires of a car are filled not with air, but with four different materials- how would the tires function?

Our brains are the wheels with many cups in them. Do we have the butterfly's effect inside them? Are they rotating with ideas? We keep filling the buckets as we are doing now on beBee? Out of the rotation of chaotic wheel of ideas new ideas shall emerge. Different ideas might fill the same bucket. Are these ideas miscible, compatible, form emulsion, or segregate into layers? Do these ideas collide, break react other of join each other? New landscapes of ideas form.

I dedicate this post with my head turning in appreciation and praise of all Mamen DelgadoΒ has wonderfully contributed…and shall be contributing.

Good morning Ali Anani Once again your illustration of and mastery of communication skills are brilliant my Friend.. I wish to share your thoughts on cups with our linked in groups..

There is certainly a "hidden" link between you Sara Jacobovici and I. You unfailingly extract my original motive to write a buzz. Your comment is incredibly correct and reflective of what I also think.

Because I have been having computer challenges in the last few days I ended up reading your most recent Buzz before this one Ali Anani. I would have put this quote in my comment; "It is amazing how life rotates us in different directions.." This is definitely a precursor to your "unmet expectations" process which you outline. I also appreciate your concept of "On the Perimeter of Chaos". I like your "edges" which you have referred to in the past in relation to paradoxes or opposites. It is an interesting use of space. Much to think about.

CityVP Manjit- again, I am not surprised by your empathy or depth. You always surprise me in great ways. Revisiting ideas is bound to surprise us with new ones. The LI post was a dedication to you, but your comments there and here are greater dedications to me.

from Ali Anani - I definitely agree with that - I was comparing a moment in time with those other cups https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HH2jPq9g6CI you featured at LinkedIn before with the cups featured here. That is the wisdom I am talking about here i.e. the appreciation of this synchronicity.

My feel there is a wide imagination possibility still open as to fill the cup with what? And how much choices w have in selecting what goes in the cup CityVP Manjit

expression of Ali Anani - The wisdom personally for me here was revisiting "The Team Lab" post in LinkedIn and holding it in relationship to the "What Is in My Cup" post here. What is in cup now is because of what got poured into my cup yesterday when I saw the Chaotic Water Wheel.

In every comment you write there is a gem. My gem from your comment is "It is only when we measure our rotation between one wheel and the next we truly appreciate the appreciation". I assure you I experience this gem right now CityVP Manjit because your comment rotated my mind. You filled my cup with your wisdom..

What is in my Cup? is an exceedingly good question and even greater as a reflection. Over time we can get really good in the flow of our ideas, and even better in the filling of our cups as we watch life rotate this way and then that. For me, my life is not simply about watching the wheels https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=utBr3C_G34k Today I watched this wheel, while yesterday I watched Ryan Ashley's Chaotic Water Wheel https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/team-lab-ali-anani-phd?trk=mp-reader-card It is only when we measure our rotation between one wheel and the next we truly appreciate the appreciation. I too have come across @Mamen Delgado and have learned to appreciate her most elegant mind also, as I do the full flowing idea master called Ali Anani

= just prior to your comment I was thinking about disappointments and their effects on our lives. I fond myself drawing a diagram linking disappointments with many other feelings- both positive and negative. Many ideas surfaced out and I was just wondering where I shall end up with. I even coined the term "nudging ideas" wherein a small nudge might drift our thinking miles away. SO, to answer your comment honestly I shall need more time to think about it realizing I might end in more uncertainty as I am now.

Verily, if our lives goes in diverse directions, then there's a greater probability that our affairs will go unbridled, erupting chaos will lead to notions in fallacy, true ideas are rarity but there's illusory effect that attempts to make a ligament of mingled realities.

Thank you @William King and I am not sure where resetting the wheel shall lead us to

Your comment makes me feel feel with the wave and enjoying its ups right now Mamen Delgado/ I hope that life fills your cups with success and joy

I feel so honored my dear Ali Anani, really in my heart. I normally say I live in my harmonious chaos, so the first picture you chose is going straight to the point. The Water Wheel has its own inertia and its own movements, like Life, and the best we can do is let ourselves flow with the wave and enjoy the ups and downs instead of struggling to fight them. Thanks so so much for your gift, wish you all a lovely day.
