Morning WO Brothers. Going to buy again today, not sure if I should do it in the next hour or wait until later. We seem to be walking the $4,000 tightrope. I know it won’t matter in the long term but it pisses me off when I buy & the price goes down in the short term, hmmmmm.

Saudi Arabia is safe as long as the west needs their oil. As soon as we don't need it anymore they better make sure they are friends with us or they will be up shit creek without a paddle.
They are making many investments, not sure with how much success. But investments aren't going to fund a country. So they'd have to start taxing its population. Wonder how long until people will start speaking out against their kings and princes at a time where they would be funding all the horseshit the Saudi royal family does directly.

I'd define the prime mover as empty consciousness. Or more precisely nothing. That which is no thing (mind the space) is consciousness and the prime mover of everything. Without consciousness even a particle would have no awareness of gravity, and gravity would have no awareness of what it acts upon. It is also why consciousness is the hard question of science and philosophy, because it is the only thing that can not make reference to itself.In the Bible it's the logos. In science it's the state at t = 0 of the big bang. In a human life it's the time of birth. We are nothing, we come from nowhere, we fill ourselves with experience, and then we return to nothing. That which moves us is the prime mover. If you think about it, an omniscient omnipresent and omnipotent God would be aware of every moment that is to come at the same time. This implies that God experiences no change, otherwise he would not be omniscient. In order for God to experience anything he must discard knowledge in order to create time by recollecting the information (what we call remembering). This also provides a strong case for the seemingly fractal nature of the universe. One implication is that we are all one and the same, but looking at "things" from different perspectives in space and time. Which again, shines a different light on "love thy neighbour as thyself" (for he is you and you are him).

I’m not going to reveal what I voted because it would possibly reveal how many coins I have.
Full Disclosure: I voted 1000+ BTC in the poll. Right now, I'd consider 1000 BTC @ $4k not being a "fuckyoucoiner" 2022 timeframe, however, well, let us discuss the issues further, on our WO Private Islands. It would be neat for all of us to just buy out an entire archipelago, and turn it into some sort of fruity libertarian utopia. Every Thursday, we could scoot around on our jetskismadeupasmockpirateships, and NerfRocket the shit out of JJG's island. Saturday nights would be designated weekly party night DJ'd by yours truly, and hosted by Big Dicked Ginger Rick on our island. LFC_Bitcoin would be in charge of pharmaceuticals. Mic and CryptoQueen could rock the bar. I mean, I can dare to dream, right ? If we can make this work in a way that guarantees safety I would be more than interested in this. Although I would suggest that we'd set up some learning outlets as well as think up random new shit to try out. A regular schedule of learning instruments for example. Also gaming nights? Basically just keep things varied enough to not get bored while not just outright turning into a retired super rich consumer drone. Not sure what a good balance of laziness and challenge would be though, but at such a time we could probably get someone to plan shit from us and have them adjust it based on everybody's input. Also, a fucking Takeshi's Castle type parkour course? A racing track?

I've seen this shit 1000 times before. The second any of this stuff starts coming out of someone's mouth, the market immediately implodes afterwards. There's contrarian investing for you.
It's more about the mass of people doing this. I've been thinking about the future in similar ways all the way down. Right now most people are still scared, otherwise the market would've heated up significantly.

2025~2030ish. Need two waves to get x10k without extremely lucky shitcoin picking. And I doubt that we'd have 500~1000m combined to go x50~ and thus be able to just get that plan going as if it were buying candy.

I’m still working on a basis for numbers being a finite field. Which makes sense if you think space time is bounded. Less so if not.

Ok work with me here. How do we achieve the assumption that numbers are a finite field?
Feel free to refer me to beginner level reading to save you typing it all out.
As for a "beginner level" introduction, I'm not really aware of any that isn't gritty rigorous Math. And in that case any would be as good as any other I suppose, since the definitions are always the same (except for perhaps the symbols used). If you feel like digging deeper I'm sure you'll find any number of resources on Google. All my notes and books for these topics are in nonEnglish though, so I can't recommend you any reference here. But alas. Assumptions are created out of more or less thin air. Generally based on past experiences (I'm not sure if we can arrive at any assumption without making references to previous ones, which is a problem in and of itself). It's also not exactly that numbers "are" a finite field, they can be depending on how many you have to play with. The numbers we usually use are not a finite field, you always have a unique "+1". However. In the case of finite fields, if you want to go from the "human experience" side you could think of it like this. If you think that infinity exists, then there's not much reason to argue here since you can just keep adding numbers and always get a unique new one, so 1+1 will always be 2 in that world. If you however believe that infinity can't exist in reality, then the only conclusion is that any field of numbers must be finite, because you'll eventually run out. And in that world you eventually come full circle, otherwise you can't have a number field that functions in the way we understand numbers. It is the only way to formalize our natural understanding of numbers (that I am currently aware of). As for what fields are, here's a very brief overview that leaves out a fair deal of the gritty parts that are necessary to formalize this. But this should hopefully give somewhat of a more formal intuition that you could compare against our natural intuition. A field can be any set of numbers that satisfies a few properties. The most important ones for the topic we're having are the existence of a set of elements (or numbers), the existence of two operations (e.g. addition and multiplication), the existence of a neutral element for each operation, and the existence of an inverse element for each operation. Let's take {0,1} as the set of numbers. And addition and multiplication as its two operations. The operation "o" (+ or *) now has to ensure that each element has a unique inverse element. So if you take any element X , there must be another element Y such that X o Y spits out the neutral element regarding "o". For addition this is 0 (you add 0, shit happens), for multiplication it's 1 (you multiply by 1, nothing happens). If you think about it, whenever you invert a number you get its neutral, 3 * 1/3 = 1, 3 + (3) = 0. If these properties are violated you can somehow show that the whole natural intuition of numbers just breaks down, but I can't think of a good example on the spot. Been too long since I've done anything in this area. In the usual fields the inverse element would just be X for addition and 1/x for multiplication. In this finite field you can't do this, because "1/1" clearly does not exist as neither does an element called "1". However, with the circular arrangement you can quickly see that: 0+0 = 0 1+1 = 0 0*1 = 0 1*0 = 0 1*1 = 1 Hence, each element has an inverse regarding multiplication and addition, and our intuition still works. This way to look at it satisfies the requirements of a field. It just so happens to be finite. This curiously doesn't work for any set of numbers either, the number of elements has to be infinite, a prime, or a prime power. If you want to get technical, then "2" in the way we normally understand it won't give you "2+2 = 0", but there is an abstract field that extends {0,1} in a way such that the elements that you could "call '2'" would satisfy 2+2 = 0. You can easily get 2+3=0 for {0,1,2,3,4} with the usual addition though (check this yourself if you'd like as an exercise). As for 'why' this works, I doubt anybody knows. Emergent properties? Essentially, fields are merely a formalization of the way in which we naturally came to use numbers based on our experience of reality. And the formalization naturally gives rise to both finite and infinite fields. There are also weird fields that have polynomials as their "numbers" and where "1" is suddenly a polynomial (the constant polynomial 1). But you would never expect either of these by not carefully thinking about the fundamentals, what you already know, the implications of either, or what other ways you could view what you already know in. These weird mysteries are why I'm against quickly rushing to conclusions on any subject and prefer looking for as many explanations and vantage points as I am currently capable of. The universe has a way to always screw us when we think we "know", and to reward us with new exciting experiences if we remain open. Quoting this so I don’t lose it. Am working on this as well.
