Use of factors determine the results of our goals. There are many factors for different situations. Anything that contributes causally to a result could be called factor. Factors could be behavioural, scientific, technical, economic or may represent myriad of other aspect of life.
Considering importance of factors for outcomes, I would like to highlight today what one factor that can damage or deepen relationships. My inspiration is William James again who has been known as one of the most influential pragmatists in philosophy. According to James whenever we are in conflict with someone, there is one factor that can make the difference between damaging your relationship and deepening it. That factor is attitude.
Attitude is a broad topic with multiple dimensions and connotations too. One may ask what kind of attitude will determine our success. In my view this depends on our personalities, positions, backgrounds, expectations and many more other conditions. However one thing that we all feel safe is the common sense in many situations. Common sense encapsulates the universal rules and is almost the same or at least similar in many culture or countries.
Building is important but I am more interested in how you deepen your relationships.

I am relatively new and have been a member of Yasni for a year now. In the beginning I did not know anything about it until I met Mr Andreas Wiedow who coached me online and encouraged me to use it effeciently. Keeping my content in one place and getting them to be rated by independent co-networkers is important for the credibility of my content. Therefore I continued to add more content, make new contacts and recently started blogging for Yasni.
Within my capacity, I created some visibility for Yasni in English speaking networks. For example, a number of blogs and discussions in Ecademy, several Tweets in Twitter for my followers around 5000+ now. I am also superfan of Yasni and promoting it in the Superfan which become a popular fav with 29,908 points.
Despite these contributions, my knowledge in mechanics of Yasni is still low. Recently, I was nominated for the Tedora Awards which made me grateful and motivated for recognition of my contributions. However, until I was being nominated, I did not know about this award. I believe there are a number of other points that we don’t know about Yasni in English speaking countries. I know it is very popular and well known in Germany however we need to create more visibility for Yasni in English speaking countries.
To be able to do that, we need to create a forum and an FAQ (frequently asked questions) centrally available online for all members. For example, the first page of Yasni site must be like a dashboard and it should branch from there to all other content and details of members through encapsulated links. Through the dashboard, we should be able to see blogs, access member areas, member content, FAQs, various branches of Yasni, news, awards, promotions, and other relevant items.
So we all have roles and responsibilities to make Yasni more visible and extended to other geographies. I’d be delighted to help for creating more visibility and would like to obtain your views to make Yasni a better known system globally which will also be good for us, i.e. the members and the other stakeholders. Let’s make this reputation system a more reputable one together!

I still believe that art and science are strongly interrelated and philosophy fills in the gaps and/or provides essential connectivity. You can guess what technology, religion and epistemology relate in this equation and resemblance.
What is sense of harmonious proportionality? It is symmetry. There is symmetry in objects in various ratios. Symmetry in dictionaries is usually defined as “an imprecise sense of harmonious or aesthetically pleasing proportionality and balance such that it reflects beauty or perfection”. There are various kinds of symmetry such as, reflection, rotational translational, helical, and most prominently fractals developed by one of our genius colleagues who works in schreIBMaschine you may know who he is.
Today I am inspired by a recent scientific discovery. It is exciting to see that golden ratio discovered in a quantum world. In fact hidden symmetry was observed for the first time in solid state matter. Details in the new issue of Science Journal, titled “Quantum Criticality in an Ising Chain: Experimental Evidence for Emergent E8 Symmetry”
I am also inspired by a world premiere, previously unseen show in Melbourne, Australia depicting extraordinary work of Leonardo Da Vinci. It is titled Anatomy of Robots: The Artist, The Anatomist, The Inventor.
Here’s a sample symmetry experience from Da Vinci’s work

Do you notice symmetry in your daily life? What sort of feeling does it give to you when you recognise it. Is it also part of your day to day life at home, outside, in the workplace? How about the asymmetric aspects?
