Those are the famous marked stones in Georgia I have read about?  Sort-of Al Gore's wet-dream?

I wonder if I would get into any trouble if I took a sledgehammer to them next time I am around there.  Libtards would likely throw me in jail.



EDIT:

TPTB

OK, I have a better handle on your situation and views.  There is nothing I can do, other than wish you the very best.  Good luck, mate.

OROBTC, to address the rest of your prior post, the business plan would be apparent on launch of an altcoin when all the white papers and marketing would be made public. Before that, the problems with revealing information include:

  • Is your computer security sufficient?
  • I will not travel at this time, except to Australia for a fecal transplant. All other travel is disruptive, risky given my writings and martial situation, etc.. Here I have a gf who takes care of me, the food is more natural, I have my very strict diet, I have a comfortable place to live now, and I am the most productive that I could be and the only increase in productivity could come from curing the M.S., so that is the only travel I will consider at this time when the clock is ticking and every moment is valuable. Also the disruption of my diet for even half a day could potentially be catastophic. I will not risk any travel sickness. No way. I am adjusted to a tropical climate, lifestyle, and food.
  • Giving people more information than they need, potentially puts them at risk.
  • You wouldn't understand it any way. And do I really have the time to explain it all? Once the white papers and n00b marketing materials are done, then you would understand, but that is part of what is being implemented now to get to a launch. So we have a chicken or egg problem. The simplest for me is to just take funding from those who trust my expertise (reputation and character) and do not require a lot of blah blah blah. But as I said, the first requirement is I really don't want to take funding from someone who can't do computer security, because I want there to be ironclad plausible deniability. Again you should note that US citizens are not allowed to sell an ICO due to SEC regulations. And I don't think the bureaucracy of another Ethereum morass is what we want. So I make do with simpler mechanisms.
  • Funding is not at the moment my critical resource problem (although it could be later). Implementation man-hours is.

But as I said, I was more or less just venting and also warning about what might and might not be possible. It wasn't an entire surrender.

P.S. Okay so been awake about 4 hours and the M.S. is starting to flare up. Gut is aching, head is going into a fog, will probably have to take sleep (or take a lot of Vitamin D3). This is the shit that is making me so damn frustrated!  Angry Grrrrr!  Angry  Angry

OK, 10-4, rgr that.

-- No, my computers are not secure.

-- I hear you re travel when you are not optimal, even more so when delicate (well, sort of delicate).

-- Cannot make a good comment.

-- Correct, I would not understand most of it.  But, I know people who would.

-- Hear you re man-hours.  How interesting that no Filipinos will work like dogs, a la some American guys sleeping under desks.


My best wishes are still with you.

They will but only in lowly jobs and then they are always doing what they can get away with when you aren't monitoring them every second. In short, they look out for themself.

They just don't think the greatest thing since sliced bread is working night and day coding. If they do it is for gaming, then yes they are very addictive and do it night and day.

In short, filipinos love to play, and for them hunkering down to do a non-social isolation job is not fun. Whereas, I love doing this "hiding in my cave coding never see the light of day for two months".

My gf thinks I am very odd not to take showers for up to months. (and I was not like that in my youth, as I am not European, I am American and we take showers every day) She does note I do not have body odor and she likes my smell, so I guess we are okay here, lol  Shocked

I did not contact the European tromp. Probably a guy I should have tried to recruit. Any way, as I said, I stopped as of yesterday trying to find someone to collaborate with.

Indeed. Filipinos evaluate their priorities more in terms of their feelings social relations, social standing, freedom to sleep in the afternoon, freedom to eat what they like, etc.. They want to be able to dabble on their own priorities.

Again "sacrifice" is a four-letter word. The Spanish tried to put that discipline here for 400 years and failed. The first thing a filipino will evaluate about you is, "are you stricto". Even pointing out a flaw for them is being too strict. They want everything smiles always. That is why the toilet is always broken here. Filipinos can break any thing and they don't care. Don't you dare loan them a computer or smartphone or even motorcycle, it will surely come back damaged. They won't even think to rig up some fix with bubble gum. They'll leave it broken and use a bucket instead.

I remember the story of how the Americans put up a sign during WW2, "$$ per head for Japanese captured". The filipinos rolled the heads onto the lawn of the military base. The Americans had to change the sign to "$$ per head and entire body of ...".

Filipino attitude is "use and moveon". Life is too short. Don't waste time on fixing anything.

German and filipino are nearly opposite, and perhaps that is why these opposites attract (at least in bed), lol.

As best I can ascertain from my limited exposure, Chinese are "don't fix, don't build quality, just demolish and rebuild every 2 years" (very prone to using some agent to increase erections such as herbal Viagra). The Japanese are the perfectionist Germans of Asia (and the most docile in bed). The Koreans are the loud, obnoxious, free-spirit Americans of Asia (and I hear from the ladies they are the most active in bed, basically non-stop rabbits).

Do you believe that any significantly disruptive emerging anonymous altcoin/internet would show up in Armstrong's ECM?

I had independently discovered there was a technological unemployment cycle before I became tuned into Armstrong's ECM. It was this technological disruption cycle which seemed to correspond with the real estate cycle.

So interesting to note that TPTB deleted Michael Pettis's blog, then I used to be able to find the backups at archive.org, but now I see they even erased the internet archive!!!!

http://blog.mpettis.com/2012/06/11/what-is-globalization/#comment-19321



So I think we can say that the Knowledge Age kicking into high gear as of 2007.15, and that 2011.45 to 2015.75 was brief eye in the storm where the Knowledge Age takeover was temporarily slowed down. Yet the early part of Bitcoin's existence before 2011, was Knowledge Age directed because it was decentralized (no ASICs nor pools yet) and it was spreading the concepts that will be incorporated into a disruptive altcoin. Remember I believe Bitcoin is planted by the DEEP STATE to enslave humanity in electronic currency and thus is the antithesis of Knowledge Age take over.

Thus yes, I expect the disruptive altcoin to arrive after 2015.75, i.e. October 2015.

Astute question! Thanks for motivating me to realize that correlation which I had identified long ago.

Definitely. Many filipinos have explained to me that they trust their fate to God. And come what may.

Filipinos believe pain in death is not to be avoided with pain killers. Oh my the stoic faces of those dying of cancer. It is humbling. I don't know if I can (and I don't really want to find out!)

@TPTBNW "Your thoughts are based in fantasy" yet you reference a "MadMax"
future and then accuse me of fantasy? Riiggggghhtt

Incorrect. My plans and schemes are valid even in a non-mad max outcome. For example, enabling micropayments and anonymity is relevant in any case to the Knowledge Age that I assert is overtaking the world.

When your local militia

I disagree with the premise. I don't see any local militias. The only possible place that might occur is in the USA (and is ongoing in Ukraine), but TPTB have been gearing up for that fight.

Sorry I don't visualize the remainder of my life spent in continuous war with mortars exploding around me every 3 minutes. And TPTB know very well that the masses quickly tire of war and are satiated with peace regardless how much sovereignty they accede. The murals TPTB constructed at the Denver airport depict very well their plans and strategy.

The world will bifurcate into a Knowledge Age and a NWO monetary reset with an enslaved new one world by 2033. In the meantime, your cowboys in the USA will be using paper dollars and cryptocurrency. Gold is a relic and it will not be used. Get over it.

All I'm doing here is pointing out how the "money system" works.

I was merely asserting that if neither crypto nor Govcoin are available, then the world can fall into a Dark Age where only food is money. I don't think that is going to happen, but it could for some years between 2018 and 2033.

Gold won't work out. The militias will also be infiltrated with spies.

DVD : "IP Man - Disc 1"

Book : "Marco Polo - From Venice to Xanadu"

Don't equate cases where currency remained legitimate to asserting that gold will remain a currency with the legit currencies are not available. Study your history as Armstrong has.

This story contrasts Venice and its metallic currencies against the paper

No nation has ever had a metallic currency. It has always been a fiat seniorage stamped onto some metal. Again study your history as Armstrong has.

By these examples I suggest that Totalitarian States and Central Banking
overreach are features of the endgame in the lifecycle of Nation States.

USSR -> Russia was an endgame  Huh

I don't entirely disagree but it is not addressing my point that gold will not hold up as a currency if the society goes F.U.B.A.R..

Despite our differences, TPTBNW, I'd agree you are on the right track.
Alternatives to a government mandated monopoly on credit issuance must be
found together with an end to the overt manipulation of markets.
(See my first post in 2013) I'd suggest that the real problem is one of getting
peope weaned off the credit they think of as money.

No the real problem is providing a way for the people who want to productive to separate themselves from those who want to perish.

Convincing people to change is a waste of time.

Quote from: Noam Chomsky
"what’s called libertarian in the United States, which is a special U. S. phenomenon, it doesn’t really exist anywhere else — a little bit in England — permits a very high level of authority and domination but in the hands of private power:  so private power should be unleashed to do whatever it likes.  The assumption is that by some kind of magic, concentrated private power will lead to a more free and just society...

just a call for some of the worst kinds of tyranny, namely unaccountable private tyranny."

Please point out to the senile Noam Chomsky that he is describing democracy, where the 0.001% (the unaccountable private owners of the governments) convince the 99% to tax the 1%, which is really a tax on the 99.999%.

Any inane socialist pigheaded questions?

I was in Australia when they were proposing the Luxury Tax. They got the people to vote for higher taxes by lying to them. The slogan was they were going to tax the rich with their “Ferraris, Fur Coats, and French Wines.”  Everyone cheered – ya! Get the bastards! When the tax was passed, suddenly the dumb public discovered ALL electrical products were included. You could not buy a clock radio without the Luxury Tax.

People get what they deserve from government – lie, lies, and more lies, and empty pockets to show for it.

Governments promised that they would never use E-ZPass [toll booth elimination] technology for speeding tickets, but they lied. A friend received a speeding ticket in the mail from Virginia, stating that they drove through the E-ZPass lane 10 mph above the speed limit. I remain skeptical about government because they are simply not trustworthy.

Btw, the Armstrong quotes I have been giving you from 2013, show the ability of my long-term memory. I am not pulling those from generalized, scatter-shot Google searches. I memorized them sufficiently to be able to know which phases to search Google for to pull them up again.

Earn just US$100,000 and you have made it to the hated top 1% that they argue deprive the 99% without exactly explain why it is such people rather than governments.

Taxes have been increasing exponentially and this has reduced new job creation from small business because in many developed countries, savings are still at rock bottom levels after the tax burden. This is just glaringly obvious when we look at Western Europe. The growth since 2007 in the sheer the volume of financial assets that have been accumulated is down by about 50% on average whereas Germany has been hit even harder as wealth has fallen to just 40% of the pre-crisis level. Germans on average now pay more than 50% in taxes and with the pending confiscation of 10% of their asset to bailout banks and an additional 5% tax to bailout the municipal governments, this trend in Germany may wipe out its ability to even create wealth moving into 2032.

Strangely, even with the French-elite socialist inspired IMF proposal to just confiscate 10% of everyone’s bank accounts in Europe, it appears that the majority of people do not pay attention to the financial news. In Europe, bank deposits are still the investment of choice, whereas long-term investments, including equities, are still being avoided as evil and untrustworthy since 2007. This has contributed to the historic low in retail participation in the stock market that is only furthering the gap between the “rich” and the “poor”. Money is just being “parked” rather than invested and this is clearly a major concern for any downturn from here will have even less wealth to provide a cushion for the middle class. Consequently, the next downturn appears to be far worse than anything previously. This is at odds with individuals facing retirement when the governments have unfunded liabilities and keep turning to higher taxes rather than looking at the problem long-term.

The rising disparity between the “rich” no one wishes to actually define and the “poor” who is defined as having less than the “rich”, is impacted by the rising taxation that is also reducing job creation and sending interest in borrowing for investment in Europe to record lows. That trend will hit the US shores starting in 2016.

The socialists love to tout that 1% of the world’s population will own more wealth than the other 99%. From the socialists’ viewpoint, this justifies stealing from one group to give to another, despite this model failing in the past. It is also in clear violation of the Ten Commandments. But why does this trend even happen? Is it that the 1% suppress the 99%? Or could it be that government suppresses the 99%?

The 99% cannot get richer because government robs them every day. What should have been put into savings and investments, was squandered as usual by politicians. So is it the fault of those who actually invest on their own? The socialists want to blame the rich and rob them, handing more and more assets to the political class who waste it on themselves.

The 99% need to wake up. It ain’t the 1% – It is those who pretend to be on your side who deprive you of your real right to economic freedom.

43 year old Litvinenko drank tea containing a fatal dose of radioactive polonium during a meeting in London in 2006.

Mr Emmerson alleges that The Kremlin wanted Mr Litvinenko dead and provided the poison used to kill him.

But Russia are the good guys because they provided safe habor for Snowden right?

Wrong! The axis powers are in bed together.

Just do a little research on how Larry Summers was over there in Russia after fall of the Iron Curtain helping to redistribute nationalized assets to oligarchs. Follow the money trail to Goldman Sachs, LTCM, the collapse of Russian bonds, Edmond Safra, Martin Armstrong, etc...

Btw, there was Goldman again writing derivatives to help Greece hide its fiscal negligence so it could be fully bankrupted in the coming conflagration.

It is one big 0.001% club, and you the 99% people ain't in it.

Goldbugs you get one more chance to sell before the selloff to < $700:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1082909.msg12041771#msg12041771

OROBTC, if you impressed your wife by selling some gold before it drops, maybe she won't think you are not capable of managing the family's networth when the price drops to $681. Imagine you can end with more gold and your wife's approval.

Maybe from the profits you make by repurchasing at $681, you can invest some of the excess in a disruptive altcoin such as Monero or whatever might come.

I have been obviously really thinking a lot about why I bothered to try to find a collaborator and also about why I would vent it publicly as I did.

Doing a Steve Jobs and being brutally frank, I think the problem is I am having so much loss of time from the Multiple Sclerosis, that I didn't trust my sheer will power to "get 'er done". Normally in the past, I was always sure I could put in the hours necessary.

Yesterday I started the day strong as I wrote about, but after about 4 hours the malaise started and the rest of the day was lost. I ended up sleeping by 3pm (after eating and a couple hours of trying to fight the malaise and failing to get any productive work done) and woke up 8pm still in a malaise and even my eyes hurt (this seems to always get worse after I exercise hard, perhaps the inflammation of the exercise stirs up the autoimmunity). Managed to get some work done (reviewing the math for one of my recent epiphanies) but my gut and head are hurting and it just isn't the same as when I was healthy. Normally I would have already finished the white paper and have been doing some coding all in this day. Now it takes me days just to complete what would have taken me only a day.

Some days I feel no ill effects and I perform basically at the same level as I did when I was healthy. But I don't get enough of these days.

I have decided to just push on and struggle and see how much work I complete by the end of this month. If I find that the M.S. is making it unlikely that I can complete the project in any reasonable # of months, then I would strongly consider accepting an angel investor who can fund me to go to Australia to get fecal transplants.

Note I know my illness is correlated to my gut, because the worst inflammation and autoimmunity symptoms always start right after I eat. It is so predictable.

Fecal Microbiota Transplantation (FMT) in Multiple Sclerosis (MS)

T.J. Borody, S.M. Leis, J.L. Campbell, M. Torres, A. Nowak, , Centre for
Digestive Diseases, Five Dock, New South Wales, AUSTRALIA;
ABSTRACT BODY:

Purpose: Recent evidence implicates the GI microbiota in the progression of neurological diseases such as Parkinsons Disease 1, Multiple Sclerosis and Myasthenia Gravis 2. We report three patients with MS diagnoses who achieved durable symptom reversal with FMT for constipation.

Methods: Case study observations on three MS cases

Results:
Case 1: A 30 yr old male with constipation, vertigo and impaired concentration and a concomitant history of MS and trigeminal neuralgia. Neurological symptoms included severe leg weakness and he required a wheelchair and an indwelling urinary catheter. Previous failed treatments included Mexiletine,
Tryptanol and 9-interferon. The patient underwent 5 FMT infusions for his constipation, with its complete resolution. Interestingly his MS also progressively improved, regaining the ability to walk and facilitating the removal of his catheter. Initially seen as a ‘remission’, the patient remains well 15 yrs post-FMT without relapse.

Case 2: A 29 yr old wheelchair-bound male with ‘atypical MS’ diagnosis and severe, chronic constipation. He reported parasthesia and leg muscle weakness. The patient received 10 days of FMT infusions which resolved his constipation. He also noted progressive improvement in neurological symptoms, regaining the
ability to walk following slow resolution of leg parasthesia. Three years on the patient maintains normal motor, urinary and GI function.

Case 3: An 80 yr old female presented with severe chronic constipation, proctalgia fugax and severe muscular weakness resulting in difficulty walking, diagnosed as ‘atypical’ MS. She received 5 FMT infusions with rapid improvement of constipation and increased energy levels. At eight months she reported completere solution of bowel symptoms and neurological improvement, now walking long distances unassisted. Two years post-FMT, the patient was asymptomatic.

Conclusion: We report reversal of major neurological symptoms in three patients after FMT for their underlying GI symptoms. As MS can follow a relapsing-remitting course, this unexpected discovery was not reported until considerable time had passed to confirm prolonged remission. It is tempting to speculate that FMT achieved eradication of an occult GI pathogen driving MS symptoms.
Our finding that FMT can reverse MS-like symptoms suggests a GI infection underpinning these disorders. It is hoped that such serendipitous findings may encourage a new direction in neurological research.

Multiple sclerosis

An infectious cause of multiple sclerosis (MS) has been speculated, though the potential for gastrointestinal pathogens to exert neurological effects remotely (as seen with many Clostridium species) has not been considered likely. In 2011, Borody et al.[38] reported three wheelchair-bound patients with MS treated with FMT for constipation. Bowel symptoms resolved following FMT; however, in all cases, there was also a progressive and dramatic improvement in neurological symptoms, with all three patients regaining the ability to walk unassisted. Two of the patients with prior indwelling urinary catheters experienced restoration of urinary function. In one patient of the three, follow-up MRI 15 years after FMT showed a halting of disease progression and ‘no evidence of active disease’.

"I have a case history in Brain Maker of a young man with MS who couldn't walk without two canes and who underwent a series of fecal transplantations in Europe, and came back and walks without any assistance whatsoever. His videotape is linked to the book and is on our site. I use the video of this man walking when I do lectures to physicians. They look at this with their jaws hanging, because again, for you and me, this was never even a consideration in medical school...

In the youtube clip his neurologist Perlmutter provides this summary in the
description section -
Published on Feb 16, 2015Carlos, forty-three, came to see me in June 2014. He needed
a cane to stand and had episodes of feeling as if his legs wouldn’t work and that he
could lose his balance easily. When I asked him about his medical history, he told
me about one morning back in 1998 when he woke up feeling “drunk and dizzy.” When we
went to see a neurologist, an MRI scan of his brain was performed, but the results
came back as normal. Carlos remained unsteady for the next two weeks and then began
to feel better. Two weeks after that, while exercising he felt as if ants were
crawling down his back. His vision blurred and, hoping to find another opinion about
his symptoms, he went to see a naturopath. That’s when he began taking various
nutritional supplements and indeed he felt a little better thereafter.

Three years later he had the sudden onset of “numbness in both legs from the waist
down.” Again he was given a new round of nutritional supplements and after three
more months, he felt somewhat improved. Two years later he had another episode and
this similarly resolved itself with more supplements. In 2010, however, he began
noticing a progressive decline in his balance and, despite various nutritional
supplements, his deterioration continued—rapidly. By 2014, Carlos went through more
tests with a neurologist, including another MRI scan of his brain. And this time,
his results revealed aggressive abnormalities, especially in the deep white matter
of his brain seen in both hemispheres and even in the brainstem. These findings, in
addition to abnormalities noted in an MRI of his cervical spine, a lumbar puncture,
and electrical testing results, all pointed to a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis.

I explained to Carlos that we now understand the role of gut bacteria in modulating
the immune system, and that recent animal research clearly had identified changes in
gut bacteria as possibly playing an important role in this disease. I then offered a
plan of action, telling him that I wanted to start a program of probiotic enemas. He
agreed without hesitation, administering probiotic-filled enemas two to three times
each week. Two weeks later, I received a phone call from him. He indicated that he
was walking more comfortably and had now gone for days without the use of a cane!
One month later we spoke on the phone again. He was continuing his probiotic enemas
three times weekly and felt that he had “stabilized.”

At that point I discussed with him the idea of rebuilding a healthy gut population
through a revolutionary new procedure called fecal microbial transplantation, or
FMT, and he agreed to do so (it’s currently not available in the U.S. for treating
MS). He chose a clinic in England where the procedure is routinely performed on an
array of immune and inflammatory problems. Before he left, I asked Carlos to
carefully chronicle his experience in a journal and report back to me.

One month after Carlos returned from England we again spoke on the phone. He
reported that after his second treatment with fecal transplantation (he received a
total of 10) he noted that his walking was dramatically improved and that it
remained that way. He told me, “I am walking so well that other people don’t know
there is anything wrong.”

The first case was Jason, a 10 year old autistic youngster with documented dysbiosis from frequent bouts of antibiotics.  Jason and his mom, Melinda, traveled to Europe for a series of fecal transplants with remarkable recovery.

Multiple Sclerosis Case Report

The second case was a Multiple Sclerosis patient unable to walk because of his neurological disorder  After a series of  fecal transplants in Europe, his video clip showed him walking nonchalantly down the hall of his hotel.(2)  This certainly got my attention.

Gravel had stopped all his medications and was trying to manage his disease through a strict diet of broiled meat and fish and puréed vegetables. His mother showed him an article from the Times about a man who had been nearly bedridden by ulcerative colitis—a condition related to Crohn’s—and who had largely recovered after a month or so of fecal transplants.

... Just as Gravel began to research the procedure, his wife received a diagnosis of breast cancer. They began daily transplants anyway, and soon he was feeling much better. ...

For years, virtually the only proponent of FMT was Thomas Borody, a gastroenterologist in Sydney, Australia, who, in 1988, after reading Eiseman’s paper, decided to try a fecal transplant on a patient who had contracted an intestinal ailment in Fiji. The patient recovered, and Borody estimates that he has since performed the procedure five thousand times, including, with stool supplied by his father, on his mother, who suffered from crippling constipation. In addition to C. difficile patients, Borody says that he has successfully treated people with autoimmune disorders, including Crohn’s and multiple sclerosis.

Fecal microbiota transplantation broadening its application beyond intestinal disorders

Intestinal dysbiosis is now known to be a complication in a myriad of diseases. Fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT), as a microbiota-target therapy, is arguably very effective for curing Clostridium difficile infection and has good outcomes in other intestinal diseases. New insights have raised an interest in FMT for the management of extra-intestinal disorders associated with gut microbiota. This review shows that it is an exciting time in the burgeoning science of FMT application in previously unexpected areas, including metabolic diseases, neuropsychiatric disorders, autoimmune diseases, allergic disorders, and tumors. A randomized controlled trial was conducted on FMT in metabolic syndrome by infusing microbiota from lean donors or from self-collected feces, with the resultant findings showing that the lean donor feces group displayed increased insulin sensitivity, along with increased levels of butyrate-producing intestinal microbiota. Case reports of FMT have also shown favorable outcomes in Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, myoclonus dystonia, chronic fatigue syndrome, and idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura. FMT is a promising approach in the manipulation of the intestinal microbiota and has potential applications in a variety of extra-intestinal conditions associated with intestinal dysbiosis.

The two or three times I tried taking K2 supplements, I felt like utter crap after digesting the K2. And now I read how correlated K2 is to intestinal dysbiosis. Regarding the extra veins and shit they mention, I get yellowed jaundice at my abdomen sometimes and also purplish coloring and pindot red blood spots.

A new study comparing intestinal bacteria in healthy volunteers to bacteria found in people with MS shows a stark contrast in the number and type of microbes each group carries.

What Roopali Gandhi, Ph.D., an assistant professor of neurology, and her team found was that people with MS have a microbiome that is decidedly different from that of a healthy person.

MS patients have a much higher concentration of a microbe known as Archaea, whose cell walls and lipids make it a strong immunogenic organism, meaning that it can trigger inflammation. The researchers also noticed that MS patients have lower levels of Butyricimonas, a microbe that has anti-inflammatory properties.

Do you believe that any significantly disruptive emerging anonymous altcoin/internet would show up in Armstrong's ECM?

I had independently discovered there was a technological unemployment cycle before I became tuned into Armstrong's ECM. It was this technological disruption cycle which seemed to correspond with the real estate cycle.




I'm assuming this fall until 2033 is due to a composite of technological disruption (including robotics), war... and perhaps lack of demand due to a dramatically smaller population?

So I think we can say that the Knowledge Age kicking into high gear as of 2007.15, and that 2011.45 to 2015.75 was brief eye in the storm where the Knowledge Age takeover was temporarily slowed down. Yet the early part of Bitcoin's existence before 2011, was Knowledge Age directed because it was decentralized (no ASICs nor pools yet) and it was spreading the concepts that will be incorporated into a disruptive altcoin. Remember I believe Bitcoin is planted by the DEEP STATE to enslave humanity in electronic currency and thus is the antithesis of Knowledge Age take over.


One of the reasons I got out of BTC recently (OK, price was part of it)... until something better comes along anyway.


Thus yes, I expect the disruptive altcoin to arrive after 2015.75, i.e. October 2015.


So, we can expect “someone” to make it happen. The (“all the world's a”) stage is set.


I have decided to just push on and struggle and see how much work I complete by the end of this month. If I find that the M.S. is making it unlikely that I can complete the project in any reasonable # of months, then I would strongly consider accepting an angel investor who can fund me to go to Australia to get fecal transplants.


This seems like a wise and logical move.

It is mostly the collapse of leverage, leverage that was piled on to fund the extension of the industrial age beyond its useful lifespan. China ate the end of the industrial age and leveraged up to hell with 0 and negative profit margins, and in doing so thus caused a symbiosis in the West that also levered up to avoid making the transition to the post-industrial age.

I believe BTC will rise one more time to $330 - $340ish, this month for a double-top, before the capitulation into lows by end of Q1 2016:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1064374.msg12041756#msg12041756

I am expecting double-digit BTC prices for the low.

This is actually reasonably well done and somewhat realistic assessment of possibilities in the post-2017 timeframe:

I found this because my gf wanted me to give her a movie to watch which would give her some understanding of what we are worried about.
