We just released our first flipbook brochure. Enjoy it.

At molecular level within any organism there are normal changes for life support. The flow of nutrients as well as body’s reaction to those nutrients has engaged flawlessly to properly support the life and wellbeing of any being. If we do not consider the past, but only the present state of an organism since the past had inputs that might be impossible to determine, then Markov chain at molecular level (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Continuous-time_Markov_chain_) is nothing more than a state to state process that depends on time, space and energy.
The last law that I consider as primordial therefore was left at the end, is representing also BITSPEC’s holistic approach to education in general and business processes in particular, as the Law of Entropy. I will try to work from a balanced structure approach on how our mind/brain and organic matter have self-development as matter to the outside exposure.
Change Management- Embracing the Changes (Lesson 3, Article 4)
This last article "Embracing the Changes" is dedicated to people who helped me to build the web site from a conceptual design that has as title "The Tree of Life". Our journey lasted for two years and it is our visual representation on how people who did not know each other, met in this large space and had the passion to join a common cause which was to build a supportive system for education. I would like to thank you all.
It might come as a surprise, but an evolutionary process in change management is the result of subjective ontology. I will not consider objective ontology and their impact on processes as part of an evolutionary process because economics tried very hard to become part of natural science as genetics, chemistry, biology, physics, yet it is the result of the subjective ontology that is causing these large discrepancies between populations. If we really want to work towards closing those gaps, a deeper insight is required into how feelings and emotions are formed, and their impact at brain and mind levels.
(58) There is noise and silence, then noise and silence again, and after many cycles we finally come to understand what Chief Seattle said: “The earth does not belong to us. We belong to the earth” and “We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children”.
(57) The most contradictory topic in today’s business world is the change management concept. The next blogs will be about change management, and I will be looking to find the origins of why changes are mainly associated with something disruptive and abrupt as opposed to calm and peace. From the start, one question that we should ask ourselves is why do we reach a level that will eventually require changes? Why can’t we just do what is good and positive from the beginning rather than making significant changes towards the end, and how do we know when the end is being reached? Are there some standards visible or maybe invisible that signals “End of the Road”?
Civilizations have existed in the last 10,000 years because of environmental conditions that have started to reach a level of highly optimized transformation making possible for energy to be stored for longer time. Food through seeds made possible the diversification of taste, textures, colors, and shapes therefore once the main contributor to life development and existence became abundant and widely available, the human being had the opportunity to settle and populate mainly those geographical areas.
“Poverty in a democracy is as much to be preferred to so-called prosperity under despots as freedom is to slavery”-Democritus (460BC-370BC) As we approach the end of this year, new horizons and hopes are shaping our common future, and it might be worth to remember that Democritus was one of the first philosophers who discovered the atom.
As many of us will celebrate Christmas as a time of peace and understanding of each other, new hopes will shape the future, and new symbols will warm our hearts as Lisa Hayward did it through a representation of an imaginary character. Through times, we came to share our knowledge in the world of Astrophysics and Astrobiology, by trying to find new meanings and understandings of who we are and where are we coming from. There are chances that life or different forms of life exist on other planets located in other galaxies and dreams help us to aspire to new horizons and new beginnings. It is the hope and balance of our Universe that holds us together through billions of years. If there is anywhere we should see our futures will be into stars that shine and light that has travelled so much to reach us, here on Earth. We are all fortunate to live together on this planet and the best that we can all do is to respect and cherish each and every moment that we get to know and help each other.
“It is silly not to hope, besides I believe it is a sin." The Old Man and the Sea” by E. Hemingway
Hope can be seen in the eyes of each and every living being ,the connection to life and the surroundings which are reflected also, in the incommensurable love that exists within and outside us. As we are born with the innate quality of hope for the future, that image is being transferred from the brain and reflected into our eyes. Hemingway’s novella is one of the most appropriate books as it sets the stage for personal achievement that cannot be taken away because it is something that each one of us can only find individually.
Native American culture is rich in symbolic representations and belief of our connectivity to Mother Nature. Hope is symbolized by an outside circle represented by the eight pointed star enclosed in a circle and containing a circle. Native American Indians referred to the Hope symbol as Star Knowledge which included the ability to mark events to come based on celestial alignments, providing hope for the future.
(50) “To begin with the end in mind means to start with a clear understanding of your destination. It means to know where you’re going so that you better understand where you are now so that the steps you take are always in the right direction.” Stephen Covey, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, 1989, p. 9
Some years ago, I read the Stephen Covey book and his view of the person needs for setting proper achievements and goals.
Any Safety measures that worldwide leaders take are proofs of how much care they have for people’s life. The causes of accidents are multiple, but in general when the life has little value, and people are reluctant to respect the rules, there is an underlying aspect of how societies react to daily news. In 2010 there were 1.24 million people who were killed in road accidents in 88 countries. In case of road accidents, the Governments carry direct responsibility to issue, implement and control the proper policies and rules to prevent those accidents.
Critical threshold derived from the percolation theory, sums up to critical mass. Under the threshold, the phenomenon tends to abort, above the threshold, it tends to grow exponentially. In cases where the phenomenon is not sudden and takes time to operate, in the form of a transition phase or phase transition, we refer to a critical phase more than a critical point that would mark a clear threshold. In most of the companies because the critical phase can take longer until the critical breakpoint is being reached, many would not realize how close are they approaching a positive instead of a negative entropy. 
We know that brain is plastic and our world changes and evolves as a result of our brain and mind. Our contemporary view of acquiring knowledge changes once the brain makes new synapses that lead to further changes. What we might not be able to comprehend at this time is that regardless of the type of work that companies or organizations perform, the people who are in contact with their educators, teachers and trainers, and follow on the latest technological advancements, will be able to further improve their mental capabilities. It is known that teachers who understand that the brain’s emotional wiring connects with the prefrontal cortex need to provide their students with a positive emotional connection to learning.
Neuroeducation is the “human science” and while it seems that between educators and neurologist there are many topics that need further resolution, we also know that each person has innate characteristics that will thrive in positive environments. ,,]3]
Several centuries ago, humanity believed that the Earth was flat and the entire Universe was rotating around us . Although an interesting concept since people have always wanted to know how the Universe evolved, there is a direct link between the brain development and our worldly evolution. As the brain is self-organizing based on the individual experiences, the need for changes happened at the individual level. If people at that time did not have the knowledge to develop the tools that would have helped them to determine the Earth location and position, “the brain” have developed and forced people to move the system upwards towards new discoveries. The belief that human beings are at the center of their own discoveries can be found in how cultures have been developed through centuries. Culture as defined by a set of integrated pattern of human knowledge, belief, and behavior that depends upon the capacity for learning and transmitting knowledge to succeeding generations, have required major shifts in time to be able to pursue their own discoveries.
Long time ago, a scholar named Erasmus, who lived in Holland, translated from Hesiod’s work the story of Pandora’s jar. Shortly, Zeus gave a jar to Pandora and asked her never to open it, but he knew that she will open it because of her curiosity and persuasive nature. Pandora was Zeus’s creation therefore he knew what her actions will be. At that time the man lived in a world without worries just that by opening the jar, the diseases and dreadful things have started to happen. ,,,
Providing a safety environment in companies implies that management team cares about people. Companies where employees or customers' safety are not on the top of the management agenda will never be able to implement a Lean Six Sigma methodology because they had missed the first Law of Humans which is to care for each other's well-being.
