October 25, 2018 | UP then DOWN then UP – what does it mean?

Designated member of Appraisal Institute (MAI), 1974. Employed with Western Life Insurance Company, 1968 – 71; Iowa Securities Company, 1971 – 73; American Appraisal Company, 1974 – 81. Part-time teacher/valuation consultant/bartender, 1979 – 2008 (taught workshops at Waukesha County Technical Institute, Wi. and Madison Area Technical College, Wi.). Retired 2008 (part time teacher/blogger), AZ. Self educated economist/philosopher/theologian:

As I write our Dow Index is UP some 390 points. Yesterday it was down some 600 points. Our cyberspace markets go UP and DOWN and everyone thinks this is real economics. What illusion, deception, and hallucination. Today at the clubhouse an investor friend stated that all is well as the market is currently going UP. Does this investor, one of my intelligent friends, with 50 years of experience in finance have any AWARENESS of reality? I said to him: your hallucination keeps you happy for now. That’s good!


But why the disconnect among thinkers about the ‘NATURE’ of all this UP and DOWN. What is causing this change within our Index Markets? Are real investors negotiating these changes in ‘value’ via a real-time process? I don’t think so. What is happening is that we now live with a computer generated marketplace which operates totally within cyberspace. My investor friends have not been taught anything about cyberspace and or cyber money. They are unaware of their hallucinations, delusions, and deceptions because they lack understanding and education.


Our index markets now operate almost totally within cyberspace. Cyberspace is a metaphysical space which we experience within our mind. Our mind thinks on these mental abstractions called money. We then assume that these mental abstractions (within cyberspace) are real objects which exist within our material world. Investors are deceived about reality and this is our real problem today. Investors seem to assume that cyber non-objects which flow within their computer screen are REAL. Real means that these non-objects ($$$) are ‘things’ which exist outside the mind. This is a deception and/or a hallucination.


Just look at the Caracas General Index Market over in Venezuela as a reference point for gross deception. As I write this cyber index market (this hallucination) is up some 32,810 points or 8.71%. A year ago this market crashed to near zero. Today, it is up some 57,490% in one year. The real economy over in Venezuela is in a depression yet the cyber index market (which is supposed to reflect economic reality) goes UP and UP (irrespective). Why? Who is  behind all this cyber money manipulation and rigging? Is it a computer with unlimited cyber Bolivar’s to trade? What do you think?


Wake-up to reality investors, we live in a hallucination and a delusion with respect to our real economy. Robots are now bringing us material goods and services and computer machines are operating 24/7. Automated production allows us to FEEL prosperous even while our central authorities manipulate cyber numbers to give us an emotional ‘wealth effect’. The game is totally rigged and manipulated (folks) and investing in this type of market is merely a GAME of illusion. Values are pumped UP and DOWN with the click of a computer mouse. What meaning does all this have?


Algorithms now set our prices and a commodity like silver can be given a ‘price’ which an algorithm sets (daily). Human investors are NOT creating our prices and price discovery is a JOKE. Machines and algorithms create our prices and central authorities choose the prices of key commodities. It’s a game of rigging which happens BEHIND closed doors. Few can discern this rigging as few are given ACCESS to the trading rooms which operate BEHIND closed doors. I am one person who discerns all this rigging activity. But my friends at the clubhouse like to live their hallucination (without thinking).


At some point down the road, we will discover all this rigging and this global investor hallucination. The key to discernment is to think for yourself. Look up this word called cyberspace. What is cyberspace? What are the non-objects which flow within cyberspace. Are these non-objects our cyber currencies? Is our ‘dollar’ a cyber currency? Forget the paper dollar or the silver dollar (only 4% of circulating money units). Think about the $$$$$$$ trillions of cyber dollar units (96%) circulating within cyberspace (my/your computer screen). What are they and who creates these non-objects?


Wake-up to the reality of metaphysical money. Cyber money units are metaphysical. They flow within this metaphysical space called ‘cyberspace’. They flow within our collective consciousness…which gets extended via all these digital machines which we use to make our investments and to communicate our decisions. Our entire system of commerce is now mostly a cyber ‘value’ system. Our money is cyber. Our savings are cyber units. Our wealth consists of accumulations of cyber units. Cyber, Cyber, Cyber is the KEY word for today!


CYBER: a combining form meaning “computer,” “computer network,” or “virtual reality,” used ithe formation of compound words (cybertalk; cyberart; cyberspace; cybermoney)


My advice is to get out of your cyber money investments (mostly) and get into real tangible investments which have some historical value. Yes, value is subjective but a tangible object (with subjective demand historically) is MUCH better than living with a hallucination. A silver coin is tangible. A gold coin is tangible. A bottle of Jack Daniels Black is tangible. Food items are tangible. Cars and houses are tangible. Oil and gas are tangible. Even paper notes (called legal tender) are tangible. Think for yourself!


Enjoy your hallucination for now. But prepare for reality down the road. I am:
