mre Ahead marWelcome to my first buzz - as I celebrate 60 years of being here on this wonderful planet of ours, sharing my thoughts with you today. It is my birthday. You may not know that I get my enjoyment from dissecting systems. Sometimes there are words not exactly deliberately in the wrong place, but you should be able to work out what I mean. No descent bee goes in a beeline to the right flower. Since I am new at beBee, rather than bee-ing critical, I shall concentrate on a pattern that seems to be emerging here at beBee. Every system has it's own finger print that the designers of the system leave behind. It seems to me that more and more humble authors are deserting LinkedIn Blues to find fresh field of flowers and newly build hives to stash your golden honey into. I once too was attracted by the sweet scent of abundance, exclusivity and professionalism. Nothing new I hear you say. Like you, 

I had offered to co-operate with the Big Blue Idiot and came quickly to learn that I could have kept going on and on, by making suggestions to their "non existing customer service" until I saw blue in the face.

It soon dawned upon me that a puppet remains a puppet, until the strings to the arms and legs are cut. I wanted to be me and  free. Nevertheless, LinkedIn did give me the opportunity to get my message to the world published. If you haven't read my article yet, I suspect you will soon hear about it. Because of my suggestion,  the European Union will indeed disintegrate, Bernie Sanders will be the next American President and Kim Jong-un showed for the last time with his old-fashioned might, that the good old days as we value money today, has become a thing from the past. The power of money is being dismantled. Whilst all over the world people might be asking themselves what on earth is happening to the various systems that seem to be in trouble, I am quietly enjoying myself as I see more and more long standing systems collapse, as time goes by. Once you have read my LI article, you can follow my rationale that the above statements makes perfect sense, if  there is a new way how we view and account for our money. 

If you are confused to what I am writing, you have a choice to buzz off to another bee hive over there. You can also follow my drift, and click on any Bee to see more.

Enough of my antics. Let me take you back to the statement Einstein made that until you can explain a complex matter in a simple way, you do not understand the subject at hand. His famous equation that energy is defined by the boundaries of the speed of light and the weight of the object is easy said, but a little harder to explain. Nevertheless, he was right with the statement as well as the sheer simplicity of his inference. However, as brilliant Einstein's mind was, he was wrong. There was one factor that Einstein did not include in his observations. What he omitted was that the act of his own observations were integral to the total system that he was examining. This dilemma is similar to a fish that can not know that it is the only one swimming in the bowl. In hindsight, the error Einstein made has become obvious to those that have examined their own minds. The problem of Schröder's cat still exists. At least mathematically, when the scientist are trying to work out all the forces that are at play, in a rational way. The reason why (the majority of -) scientists are still grappling with this question is because the science community itself does not regard consciousness as an existing form of energy. If it did, it should show up in their equations. The act of observing, determines where the cat will be. Confused? Read on.

With all that said, I shall try to shed a light on consciousness in a different way, by observing some patterns that I have seen develop here at beBee over the last few months. Without being able to make an animation, I am inviting you to take the beBee logo and imagine you could zoom into it, in order to become a life like artificial bee, and see what you would be able to do in the real wide be like me world, carrying it's tiny body around guided by it's strange visual framework and it's acute sense of smell. There is something to learn from a click on any of my bees. It will take you to some of my best LinkedIn connections that I have made over the years. I am grateful to have come to learn from your knowledge and help.isn't it nice to see, how to be free?Mind Spirit

mre Ahead marEverywhere I look, I see consciousness arise. Because science has a hard time explaining how consciousness works, I will start with when consciousness is present. Once you recognize it, you can start looking for the source. This source will ultimately be outside you! This is the big secret. The Big Bang of the Universe if you will. The answer is literally staring us in the face. I have come to discover that consciousness arises, when there are two conflicting sensory inputs. Please take note of this statement. It takes only nine words, to capture what the science community does not understand.

Consciousness arises, when there are two conflicting sensory inputs.


The fact that Einstein omitted this vital information, does not mean that his other observations are not valuable. He is believed to have said that imagination is more important than knowledge. From that point of view, let me take you further into the unknown. You may have noticed the integration of colored beBee bees throughout my buzz. Just as words have each their separate meaning, order or function in such way they convey the same message for all of us, so do symbols and colors. Let me explain. When we look at the eyes of a bee in close-up we know they consists out of hexagons, just like the way they store honey. It seems that on two occasions the bees have made use of the most economical way to deal with space related matter. If I were to imagine the inner workings of a bee to that of my own, I come to see myself in a total different light. In this way, I invite you to think through me, and be that bee. My connections influence my bee-ing me.

Orange is the color of creativity. Throughout this buzz, your consciousness to "get" my meaning wil be tested. I am using words and images in order to convey my meaning. As soon as you 'get my drift", you will most likely exclaim an internal "ahum" in your stream of thoughts. I have a habit of going through this realization process aloud. I often say 'ahum' or 'aha' when I listened to someone to let them understand that I have gotten their message. I literally say, Huh-huh" when I understand an other person. The little movement that the "ahum" sound makes on the top of my skull, together with the mind shift that I have just made in my logic by understanding that insight which I had not before, is my way of becoming conscious. By making that sound, I have made myself a new mental model of how reality has changed. Our bodies are conscious raising vessels. The sound I make, creates a different mental image in my head in order to remember this event, as a new realization. Consciousness has arisen, within my mind.

Our brain makes meaning by helping us understand words, images and feelings by connections in three specific areas that only humans have. Movement, colors, symbols (or shapes/forms), patterns and numbers have more meaning than what most of us realize. Together, they form the substance of our consciousness. What happens when I describe an orange hexagon with a single white bee depicted in it? Does that make you think of beBee? "Naturally" I can hear people say. Is the conclusion just as 'natural' before beBee existed I wonder? Not a soul would have thought so. The reason why beBee has chosen it distinctive symbol to be orange is because orange is an adventurous color that inspires us.

mre Ahead marThus, when you see a bee indenting a paragraph like what I did in my introduction, you wil be stung with something that is depicted by the color of the bee. This is why I choose a golden bee, to indicate 'the weight' of my stated observation that consciousness arises when there are two conflicting sensory inputs. If what you see if not the same as what you hear, you are aware of a mismatch. Science has until now 'reasoned' that consciousness is generated within the brain, and extends itself outwards resulting in our behavior. This why the medical field believes that 'consciousness' can be altered by medication. Because behavior does change when one takes these poisons, science therefor 'proves' that consciousness is therefor generated within the brain. This is utter non-sense. Consciousness enters the brain through your external senses! Any sound that reaches your ear comes from the outside world. Hearing is an external sense. In the same way, any light source that enters your eye, make you aware of changes in your outer environment. Hearing and sight are your outer body senses. The colour blue indicates authority and unity.

Behavior is caused.

mre Ahead marWhat happens when you are born? Until that time, You would have been in the womb of your mother developing your Self and your Body into a mass of Self-Organizing Cells, which became that most perfect human being. Until that time Your Body knew three internal senses. From the five senses we think we have, the senses that You would be familiar with, are those of touch, taste and smell. These three internal senses make You aware of the Outer Layer of your Physical Body. How awful do we feel, if others are getting too close to us? Ever noticed how much distance we keep from another? The sense of touch is very very intimate. If we greet each other, at best we shake hands isn't it? Naturally one would say, but think about this. What happens we we kiss another person? Oops, let me not go there for a moment yet, and explore what we do first. Before we let someone touch us (anyhow or anywhere), we need to be emotionally connected. Our sense of touch is not just a physical awareness, but also emotional. The sense of contact that we normally call touch, is much better understood through what the word feeling means for us. You only kiss another person, if you feel the other person is also inclined that you approach them in that fashion. You never ask for permission do you? You hope that your intention is understood, by the context of the situation you are in. In this way feeling can be regarded as a line in the sand that you do not cross. The browny sand colored bee in my articles indicates that something is required for the need of survival, as it stands on guard for stability and friendship in the hive.

mre Ahead marWhat happens when I say: First, there was sound. Exactly! You are reminded to the first line in the Bible, John 1:1 In the beginning was the word. When we raise the subject of religion, we stop listening. Religion is nothing more than believing something. But hey, why can we not talk about something that is so important to our existence? Let me put it another way. Everyone needs three things. Everyone needs something to believe in, such as the purpose of what you do. Also, every one needs someone to believe in. And, just as important is the need for someone to believe in us. The latter two are most likely a life partner or another pivotal person in your life. Initially this person is your mother. Later in life this 'someone' will take the form of two people. If one of these 3 perspectives is missing in your life, you will not be a complete person. Purple is the colour of 'belief' as it indicates mystery, wisdom and respect.

Every person requires two tangible believe forms, and one intangible belief form.

mre Ahead marSo what happens when we shake hands? We actually exchange far more information than what we realize. If we know the other person then that is fine. But what goes on in the background when we meet some one new? Can we really trust this new person? Does this person belief in me? What are the intangibles this person believes in? Watch the video to find out what we unconsciously do, when we meet someone. What does this knowledge tell you about your sense of touch? In this way, the statement that smell is the outer sense of your skin and taste the inner sense of your skin whilst the skin itself filters what goes through the skin further into the body, is a reasonable way of describing how these three senses define Your Bodily Existence. There are three bits of information we believe in, without being aware of it. Smell establishes trust. Once you trust another person, you are far more inclined to believe the information the other person provides you in an exchange. You subject yourself to the knowledge of the other, and take the information much earlier fro be true, than when you do not trust that person. Red associates with movement.

Our 'direct' senses are situated in our head around the brain. I have explored three so far. The other two senses of hearing and sight begin their intended function, after You entered the Wide Open World. This makes sense, doesn't it? WOW, now your reality has shifted from a warm, liquid encapsulation touching your entire bodily form, to an environment that is cold, dry and open. What a difference in environment, after all that pushing and shoving of your Bodily Existence. The moisture in your ears will have cleared from your ears as soon as you  scream your head off, to fill your lungs with air. For the first time you can hear distinctive sounds. The voice of your mother soon becomes the beacon for food, safety and care. Her voice, is your awareness. At the same time, your eyes would have received a higher intensity of light as you would have received before. Now, you are exposed to two the senses that define your outer body reality. The two outer bodily senses of hearing and sight, together with the three basic Boundary Senses of smell, touch and taste, enable you to start that journey to develop into a spiritual person. WOW, you have come to bee, in existence.

mre Ahead marUnlike the boundary senses which guard your body, the eyes and ears are necessary for our survival out in the WOW. We have two for good measure. Oh, I can hear someone say; what about my nostrils? There may be two nostrils, but the fact that there are two holes does not influence the effectiveness of smelling. My hearing or sight however is affected when they no longer functions in pairs. If one of my nostrils was closed up, my sense of smell would not be affected.  Loose the sight out of one eye, and the capability to judge distance is lost. As I am hard hearing in my left ear myself, I can speak from experience that sometimes I do not notice sounds that is clearly heard by others. Sometimes "this" is called selective hearing. That is handy too, but that is not the same what I mean. There is a reason for having two eyes and ears. Having two each helps you to obtain the position of your body in the surrounding environment. The eyes and ears are the senses that define the reality of everything that exists outside your body. Therefor, these two senses are outer body senses. Sight and hearing will tell you only, and more precisely, how your physical body relates to the environment around you.

mre Ahead marLet me ask you, where is the most sensitive part of your body? And no ladies and gentle men, it is not where you think it is! What is it with you people? As explored before, my most sensitive 'sense' is obviously my skin. Why so? Until my birth have been encapsulated by skin for nine months. My skin is the sense of my Personal Boundary. My sense of taste checks for chemical structures of compounds that want to enter my personal boundary. I hope that the words I chose today have the right flavor so that the different ingredients I use for you to digest are to your own taste. My sense of smell checks for any gaseous substances that might come in contact with my personal boundary. Both senses not only protect the safety of my well being, at the same time their signals allow for the intake of the phytonutrients, vitamins and minerals checked by the membranes of the cells in my nose and tongue to occur, that my Bodily Existence needs to survive. We use the language of our senses in our vocabulary. If you smell a rat in what I say, you will soon dismiss what I care about most: The production of thought provoking articles and comments about the systems I am exposed to. Yellow is a color of learning lifts our mood and assists with mental clarity. Through my yellow bee, I thank all my conversational connections I have had through the linkedIn Group for Integrated Leadership and Change Management. I have learned a lot from your interactions.

mre Ahead marSince I have little experience with beBee, I shall explain how I see my own hive. Through the images of the beBee Logo, my world is depicted by the white bee on the right. The one that has escaped. It is not encapsulated by a color, other than it's own black outline. Naturally, otherwise you won't see it. It is meant as if it is not there. This 'transparant bee' is similar to looking at consciousness. Science tells us that consciousness is generated within the brain, and extends itself outwardly. I deduct it's consciousness enters the brain from the outside, through my two outer senses of sight and hearing. Like the transparant bee, my two outer senses are checking out what the other bees in the hive are up too. White is the colour of innocense.

I hope you have enjoyed the honey that I had stored up in my hive for you today. For a more in depth analysis of how consciousness arises, look out for my next pot of honey.

Peter van Doorn with patronage I was trying to convey that I enjoyed your interaction!

Mysterious indeed Peter van Doorn! Then again, I have deleted a comment on a post recently so I am not too worried. Did I address you in caps, or did I respect Consciousness as an entity? Have all the ancient wisdoms have not been pointing to the existence of Consciousness, which is inevitable to disappear when you die? Thanks for your patronage. As for the question of prove: Because of what I have brought to the world, I have few people who really understand me. In other words, for the last year or so I have sought refuge in the country of my birth in order to discover the reason for the communication problems I have had all my life. Although 'society' seems to think that my sensitivity to other people feelings needs medication, my opinion is that I tap into the right side of my brain twice as much as my left side of my brain, because of an operation when I was seven. I hear "twice as good" through my left ear than what I do though my right ear. Test have proven this in the past. In my reasoning, this makes the information flow into my parallel processing side of my brain twice as much as what goes to the logical side of my brain. As the world is working on the principles of logic, feelings and intuition are excluded. This means that I am in essence ignored. If you live a life like that for 60 years, life becomes rather difficult. As I am not a medical doctor, my own 'findings' have not been accepted by my own siblings, wife or children. I sought understanding from what I thought was a professional so as to explain to my own family what the underlying reason for 'my' communication problem really is. Allas, even after pointing to the old medical oath, the white coats preferred to defend the system. My cleanliness is that I am free of taking any medication whatsoever for over six years actually. I've tried most of them. When I did not trust my Consciousness. #67

Peter van Doorn, I realized this morning that if psychiatry seriously thought that I was "unstable" then why they did let me go without intervening? They did not prescribe, nor attempt to suggest to use, any of their so called medication that would "fix my lunacy" (having invented a new way of trading) to swallowing anything that they themselves are not prepared to put into their body, just so as to see what it does to your mind. The've read all about it in books without trying it. Expert advice! Would they trust and fly with me, in my own build dual-peddle propelled air-bicycle? No? Why then should I consume anything they have never had themselves? What about if your diagnoses is wrong? I've been clean for over 5 years now and like to keep it that way thank you.

Peter, the fact that you can openly admit that You might be erroneous about your Self proves that you already have cracked the shell of the Ego. Admitting you have an Ego is the key that you are willing to adopt new values. Making room is the hardest bit, but also the easiest - once you surrender to what is. The 'what is' is usually not what you expect it to be. What I found Peter, is a way to express my consciousness. What it brought to me is about 4000 views and a handful of - very positive - comments from people like yourself, who don't mind to push the boundaries of their own limits, in order to harness the power of their stillness.

UPDATE: I went to see a so called doctor of medicine today to see if I could get a medical perspective on my views as stated herein to get rid of the pills that I had to swallow, so as I could keep my job (which I refused), now some years ago in a different country than where I reside today. The opinion was - perhaps not so surprisingly: "You are a crackpot." Awel, perhaps the good people at Pro Persona (Nijmegen) prefer to stay with the knowledge that the earth is still flat.

Thank you @Sara Jacobovici for taking part in the exploration and your very informative link, which concluded with: "Doctors believe that pushing off the uterine wall probably helps the fetus develop the ability to reach his mother's breast soon after birth. When a newborn baby is placed on his mother's bare abdomen, his primal instinct starts to kick in: Within the first hour of life, he'll push his way up toward his mother's breast, guided mostly by scent, according to research by Marshall Klaus, M.D., author of Your Amazing Newborn." Let me pick it up from here. Scent leads me to elaborate on my claim where one can find the most sensitive part of the human anatomy, via another sense. This, dear reader, is our clef. A newborn is searching for the breast by the sensitivity of the clef - which is in essence a scar. Scarred tissue is more sensitive than non scared tissue. Although it is at first guided by smell (do I have to go into why the newborn would most likely smell mothers' secretions from the nipple first, or are you with me so far?), by the time the newborn reaches the areola (surrounding area of the nipple) the mouth would open to the taste of food, with a soothing voice, creating a meaning (taste) of safety (touch) and survival (smell).

Peter, you are trying to understand consciousness by making a judgement from your current knowledge. Your Ego prevents you to make a different meanings because of prejudice or bias. You can't help it as you are unaware of the knowledge, and thus reason differently than I do, as you have not had the experience - on purpose! My suggestion is to experience consciousness without thought, or reason. It is there, but it is not there when you look for it. A donut is not whole, without a hole in it. Try to reason if you must, from the perception that light has no shadow. If you would like to see what I mean then simply hold a (cigarette) lighter close to a wall when the room is lit in the evening. Observe the shadow of the lighter on the wall, before you ignite the flame. Similarly, consciousness represents the energy of the Universe. Hate is merely the absence of love. Consciousness is not the fifth force in the Universe. It is the first. The other four are less influential.

Part 2/2 Because we create meaning from our experiences, it is all subjective, and that is why science can only be as objective as its researchers. We are self reflective and use our mind to ask why. This is part of the dynamic internal/external process of engagement; how we make sense of who we are in relation to ourselves, others and our environment. It is our innate ability to imagine, however, that allows someone like Einstein to actually get it right. He was able to "see" things in the absence of external stimuli. That is why we are still proving his theories to this day. "Gravitational Waves Detected 100 Years After Einstein's Prediction" https://www.ligo.caltech.edu/news/ligo20160211, and we get to "hear" it too! The last thing I would like to mention is that we have many states of consciousness and we move from one altered state to another throughout our 24 hour day. Our sensory experience change within each state. I am in awe of what we call a human being, I am in awe of us. And your engagement through your Buzz, with its rich stream of consciousness, ideas, and opinions, just goes to prove my point. Thanks for the opportunity Frans.

Part 1/2 @Frans van Wamel, we share a birth year. You are one month older than me. I celebrated my big 60 on July 29. Let me say thank you to Irene Hackett for bringing your Buzz to my attention . It touches on all the subjects that are of interest to me. I would like to respond to just a few at this time. From my perspective we are sensory beings and conscious beings. Our sensory system is the only thing we have that allows us to have experiences in this world and then our consciousness makes meaning out of those sensory experiences. The process is a dynamic one with movement taking place between our internal and external environments all the time, thereby I can not see consciousness as something limited by external stimuli alone. As you say, our sensory experiences begin in utero. Hearing, however, begins here, not after birth. Because the amniotic fluid is a better sound conductor than water, hearing begins in the womb and the baby can not only hear all sounds and the mother's voice, but can distinguish that voice from other voices and other sounds from birth. http://www.parenting.com/article/what-babies-learn-in-the-womb

We mainly use our eyes 'to look' for, or, to direct our thinking. An other portal of entry might be what you can hear. One makes a reference point, at a critical moment in their early life. This is the point at which you become 'aware'. The minute you become aware, your Ego starts to 'dream'. From this moment onward you think. These thoughts accumulated in your mind. The Ego started building 'your' castle in the air. Think about the Ego as if you use the mirror. Every day your face changes, but the you you are, stays the same. You either like (some thing about) your Self, or You don't. Similarly, your life experiences and feelings that they have left behind are absolutely real, for you. Your body can testify for it, as it absorbed the energy the Ego was looking for. Everything is energy. The mirror uses light as energy. What you 'see' is what you present - to your mind that is guided by the energy of the spirit and attitudes you hold. The mind uses the ear as energy - to create a thought. Close your eyes, and listen. Ask your Self, do these feelings and thoughts have the same meaning for an-other(, you)?

One question deserves another Irene Hackett. I could have answered yours' in a few different ways so I'll put it this way to you: The truth can be found, but you must keep on looking for it. ( ... it comes from the following observation: Jesus was wrong! The truth does NOT set you free. It is the KNOWLEDGE of the truth, that WILL set you free, from the cross that you bear, or the BELIEF that you hold.) By the way Irene: Personally, I love trick questions because I hold the mantra that if you don't like the answer, you shouldn't ask the question. #47

Frans van Wamel. It is working fine. This is thanks of distribution through the hives. You can have zero followers and being read thanks to the hives. You have great distribution and engagement will come from your followers if they follow you after reading your buzzes. As you already know LI limit your distribution.

Javier C\u00e1mara Rica. I have made some quick calculations for your beekeepers if you don't mind me doing this publicly. At linkedIn my connection base is just over 600, which are all of high standing because the way I close to connect with others over my time with LI. At the time I published my best article - not my first - my connection count was about half that. As it stands today, took two years through the Pulse Network to achieve 3033 visits to my scribbles there: https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/20140811135620-250311114-change-the-world-before-it-happens? Two days ago, I published my first article here on beBee. You were one of the first to spot it from memory. I literally have 43 followers in total as I have not done much on beBee - yet. Despite this, there have already been over 3000 reads to my first buzz, without doing anything at all! There are two trains of thoughts going through my head at the moment, and please do not mind me asking you directly. May I cautiously ask whether your reading counter is working properly? Or do you just have a fantastic Social Network that deserves to be seen by many more? I think I know the answer. Thanks again for the opportunity to share my thought on your network. I am already happily endorsing BeBee to my relatives and commercial contacts. Vivo con gratitude. Frans van Wamel.

Thanks @frans van Wamel! I've learned standing alone can lead to a better place because it's only temporary and yes dreams can become our reality!

Thank you @Lisa Gallager: There are many more who have started to change the world because they had 'a dream'. If you ocus on what really matters to you by standing for your beliefs, even if it means to stand alone, consciousness will arise. Please dream on, whatever it might be. I did.

As someone else famously demonstrated because of memory loss, there is no need to smoke to come to realize that science has made an error of judgement that caused the gaze over our eyes @John Valledor. But if beBee could fix up this nasty problem that whatever I do your name won't be highlighted is a little annoying. Given that I know that there are some beekeepers around, I suppose that will be fixed soon.

Thanks for your thoughtful comments @Maman Delgado. Indeed, sometimes we look for an answer that causes us to forget what the question was.

Welcome to beBee @Frans van Wamel and happy birthday! This was brilliant and a lot to digest- which means I will be bookmarking this to read it again. Consciousness entering from the external world makes much more sense- even our dreams can be part of that? I've had the TV on while asleep (yes, bad me) and suddenly the show that's playing in the background is part of my dream, even the people may become a part of my dream. I will have to take note if I smell my hand(s) after a handshake. Honestly, I don't recall ever doing that but then again I'm a bit germaphobic when it comes to hands. Maybe not germaphobic but acutely aware of the germs we can transfer. This was an excellent read, thanks!

good destination and thank you for pick

Your article is amazing and thought-provoking, Frans van Wamel. Also, your use of the platform is extremely clever. You stated in the beginning this your first buzz; well don't let it be your last. :) Oh, Happy Birthday and welcome to beBee!

First of all, Happy Birthday!! I hope you did enjoy much yesterday as the special day it was. And second, I have enjoyed this your first post in beBee, intelligent, fun and interactive post (I have discovered after reading Don Kerr's comment that clicking on each of the photos you head us to different links, cool). You talk about so many things and so interesting all of them... I use the Schrödinger paradox every now and then in my life, what I say to myself is that I never know what I'll find out till I open the "box" (whatever the box may be). As lovely Joanna Hofman says your post is a fantastic journey. Looking forward to your next pot of honey as the emergence of consciousness is one of my favorite topics. I leave the reading of your article "Change the world before it happens" for another moment. You are a very prolific "doer". 😉

What a clever use of the platform (click the bees) and what a thoughtful and thought-provoking article. Many thanks for the evident effort required to share this with us Frans van Wamel Another strength of beBee is it welcomes long-form pieces such as this and short pithy entries.

The articles you had with Phil Friedman. I've been chewing on getting my fingers to the keyboard for about half a year now. The whole job was done in a day and a half. Thanks for commenting my friend. It makes the agony of finding the right words through the satisfaction of have finally written something so much more enjoyable. I am pleased you have gotten your own view of our hidden Universe from it.#18

Very Interesting obvservations, Frans van Wamel I did have an aha moment when I read that consciousness is a result of external stimuli, which I had never thought of in that way before. So that thought entering my conscious mind, along with all the rest has indeed enlightened me.

A special thank-you to you Javier C\u00e1mara Rica for making beBee, into what the others could't see. I am grateful to receive a shout from the man on the top. I am pleased you invited me to come along a while ago to let me connect and communicate with those I care about. It is good to see that there are many of my writer friends have come to realize that we were flogging a dead horse. Let beBee be best. Frans.#7

Very cool buzz @Frans van Wamel. I loved the idea of the bees leading somewhere, although I wasn't too happy to be led to LinkedIn more often than not, a place where I spend very little time these days. Hope we can coerce these writers to beBee. Looking at the engagement some are getting on Pulse, they could definitely benefit from the increased exposure here.
