One more post to clarify some final issues of great importance...
Given the links I provided in the prior post (e.g. the Reese commission report) on the existence of a cabal and given Armstrong's unwillingness to post the revelation about Larry Summer's involvement with "21 Inc" given he had published every detail about Summer's involvement, and given Armstrong's insistence on a NWO monetary cooperation reset and him conditioning us for such on set dates, has anyone else entertained the possibility that Armstrong is a fraud set up by the DEEP STATE to condition us to accept the coming machinations of the TPTB as natural? (P.S. I am still evaluating the Farrell video which mentions UFOs, as this seems too fantastical to take seriously, but I am pondering an interpretation whereby TPTB created UFO mirages to scare their own members into believing they are reptilian. Keep in mind the strange pagan rituals of these elite groups, e.g. Skull & Bones, Bohemian Grove, etc)
Armstrong's unwillingness to publish the 21 Inc revelation could be simply explained as it would blow a huge hole in his assertion there is no global coordination amongst the elite towards a NWO. But why would he resist this interpretation? Why would he resist a mea culpa? Perhaps the non-conspiratorial reason could be that he feels so strongly that the only way the world can avoid a Dark Age is to implement his proposed solution and he may feel that if the readers think TPTB are preordained then they won't work for the political solutions Armstrong has proposed.
But if Armstrong's life vocation has been about not ignoring data, then the above explanation makes no sense. Thus I return to Armstrong being a fraud as perhaps the only explanation that makes sense, but then that doesn't compute entirely either, because he was in jail for so many years against his will. Perhaps the one explanation that makes sense is that Armstrong's model is real but he was hypnotized and mind programmed while in SuperMax prison and now is incapable of thinking for himself on this issue of TPTB. Or that the circumstantial evidence about TPTB is not sufficient for Armstrong to falsify their existence and his overriding desire for a political solution allows him to justify ignoring some data
Interesting reading the following post from Ethereum's Vitalik. My design also attacks the same problem, but in a much more elegant and non-heuristic manner that is guaranteed to always avoid censorship.https://blog.ethereum.org/2015/06/06/the-problem-of-censorship/
Also why are iCe and Cypher so adamant and unwilling to respond to my points completely and instead resort to ad hominen actions such as a political move of putting someone on ignore or posting cartoons about trolling? Is it because they are paid operatives of disinformation? Has Cypher been compromised to work for some group because of the case threat against him? I don't know the answers to these questions. My overriding conclusion is that politics and technical disruption are mutually exclusive. If we see the preponderance of former, then we know we don't have the latter.
On the issue of Cypher's case, the business agreement he entered into as described by the plaintiff's filing, appears to me to be an intentional scam based on the 10% of every unit sold by HashFast. The percentage is too high to be profitable on hardware and/or HashFast existed for no other reason than his forum promotion. Clearly that does not represent a real sufficiently diversified business plan and model. Also Cypher has denied to publish a link to his rebuttal of the facts of the case even I asked him for it. He may think this is his personal affairs, but he made it public by profiting in an alleged scammy way on his reputation here. This is another reason I said I would never put my reputation on any altcoin. I don't want to be dragged into culpability for a public exposition. Also Cypher has stated that he wants to verify the identity of each person in this thread who is on the opposite side of his case. This appears to be a preparation for revenge. I had deduced his motive before he wrote that, and that is why I decided he is disingenuous and I have no incentive to Skype with him. Furthermore I am now contemplating that he is a compromised by TPTB and may be working as a disinformation agent. Occam's Razor would argue that the least assumptions are that he is just a greedy guy (who doesn't have "mea culpa" in his vocabulary) that isn't that astute on computer science and tries to misapply medical research practices to a different vocation that is outside his expertise. And thus the only way for him to profit greatly on this new technological wave was to resort to scammy political actions.
P.S. rpietila the Farrell video discusses the technology for anti-gravity at 32 minute mark. He also posits at the 57 minute mark that the amount of gold in world may be understated by an order-of-magnitude. I have not formed an assessment of this video yet.
Edit: the bearer bond issue towards the end of the Farrell video potentially has enormous implications on crypto-currency!
Which is a long way of saying... cypherdoc, you should start a "Gold collapsing. Bitcoin UP. [moderated]" thread. All of the intelligent people will migrate over, and then you can just kick out the trolls.
You do realize don't you that you just destroyed your rationality. But rationality wasn't your objective was it. Politics is all we have here.
RE: TPTB, I tend to ignore people who consistently reply multiple times in a row during a conversation. Because there is a pathology there... they are writing more for themselves than for others. The exception to this rule of course is the guy who is stimulating conversation in a thread by citing interesting new news, etc. Cypherdoc in this thread and adam in the classic wall observer for example.
Because you are more interested in politics than technological disruption. Anyone who desires rationality will not ignore data. You do realize don't you that I have technological disruption and thus I don't need your politics. Check mate.
Friendly reminder, just in case you forgot.
In case you forgot that a notice of intention is not a usury insurance against discovery. Where are your priorities?
imagine getting all those ppl and their fiat involved in those operations to switch to Bitcoin or Bitcoin mining.
Mining ROI is the problem that has to be eliminated if you want technological disruption. Abstractly, for as long as resource extraction power vacuum is concentrated at the center of the network, then it can never escape velocity on politics. If you can't understand the prior sentence, then just need to wait for your imminent education.
Every reasonably advanced thread is indistinguishable from magic, and therefore attracts non-intelligence and trolls like a honeypot. Letting them destroy the vestiges of readable discussion that might once have existed, is your holy commission.
Bet you don't even have a thread as you seem not to care about your readers even that much
How can a scientist know what is data before he employs unexpected data to refine his theory. He can't. You may argue that you are omniscient and can pinpoint in real time relevant data, and I can argue you delusional on this particular point (not overall). Afaics, your most egregious errors in judgment have come from creating moderated threads to discourage dissent and encourage an aura of superiority, e.g. reinforcing your calls for "Bitcoin to the moon" and HODLing at $1000, $700, $600, $300, $200, ...
Given the links I provided in the prior post (e.g. the Reese commission report) on the existence of a cabal and given Armstrong's unwillingness to post the revelation about Larry Summer's involvement with "21 Inc"
I missed something. What is the 'revelation'? As far as I know 21 Inc and Summers have both been entirely up front about it (using it to promote in fact).
Revelation for his readership (which is perhaps 100,000 or more) who are not aware of that specific publicly available data. It is an anomaly because Armstrong has made vilifying Summers one of his main and most intense themes.
21's mining use case shows that blocksize has no impact to miners at all.
Ultimately block size modulates transaction fees when debasement declines, with another halving due in 2016. You all seem to forget TPTB operate with long-range planning.
You may be only focused on the point that their miners will send hashes to a pool, thus don't have to process the transactions, but is not sufficient to make the conclusion of "no impact".
merely for the opportunity to troll me would be one reason. but i suspect that doesn't explain it all.
He is likely just bored while waiting for true disruption to arrive.
You are more spot-on than you might realize. A good part of what draws me to this thread is indeed watching your head swell. I bet you are as surprised as I am ... the native abilities which your mind has to draw in the following.
I strongly encourage lurkers who are not yet 'found out' to add to this pressure because the resulting display is very amusing.
Politics is a least common denominator effect. Is that really surprising?
Intelligent people should feel trapped by the lack of technological disruption in Bitcoin. I presume they do (otherwise they are not that intelligent).
see, i told you, you can't stay away.
He (and most everyone here now) will be gone when technological disruption arrives. Enjoy it while it lasts. The pinprick approaches...
