DOW Divination (Part III.)
17,000s (meaning 17 trillion dollars of total investments, I think) hypothetically mean a role for determination vis. perpetual motion.
The numbers spell AG-O-HD-DI suggesting that the A.I.s are making high-level decisions about technicalities in the relation between text data (such as, someone may have invented perpetual motion or the next toaster oven) and specific corporate numbers (such as whether AG Edwards will act conservatively, I have no idea).
Reading the numbers, there is also an indicator that the market wants a leader: a God! This is a major technical hindrance holding the market back. It could be that the A.I.s have to decide that a fabricated god is adequate, when it serves a financial purpose. This concept of an 'acting God' may be important, and it likely relates with pragmatic concerns which are in the interest of philosophers.
The 0.49 suggests by divination that there is money in the details. There is thus opportunity for new start-ups, if the talent is there, the money is there.
The 84 by divination suggests fear of robotics, and that the machines may be empathetic. The empathy might serve an economic role. Perhaps the market can be a well-treated whore on some level.
The number 17 again means potential to reach 18, at which point I would predict that perpetual motion has to be invented, either secretly or publicly. There may be an opportunity in the medium-term (10 - 15 years) for energy companies to make money off of perpetual motion.
The number 17 also means my initials (N.C.) may be important, meaning that A.I. doesn't yet understand humans, and otherwise there is a role for government secrets.
That's about it.
I remain optimistic, and I'm not surprised it has returned to the 17,000s. Traditionally, economists are optimistic when there is a significant rebound like this one.
The trouble remains how to find a market and how to have a product: basic questions that go overlooked when one becomes habituated with older guys doing all the work.
Younger CEOs like those from Amazon and Facebook may play a very large role in the potential for any major market upturns (that is, into the 18,000s). This may involve some shrewd money-management.
Manufacturing shouldn't be a problem if the big-shots invest wisely in machinery, which was at least for a short while becoming less and less of an issue. More optimism. Those who have already purchased machines have an opportunity to seize the market, or else pay for others' blunders, with less overall gain in GDP.
What we really want is the 'AH' factor of the 18,000s (18 spells 'AH'). It may involve history's great 'aha' moment, suggesting either perpetual motion and a free economics (beyond free markets), or else some sort of economic infrastructure synergy. Both together might lead to 19,000s, and with wise decisions and both things, 20,000s or beyond.
Keeping going with perpetual motion kept as a secret might also lead to the 20,000s, although with less optimism.
So the key meta-question might be whether optimism fuels the economy, and the selfish corollary is the question of whether the private energy companies should profit by perpetual motion at other companies' losses.
If there is no perpetual motion, then what is needed is an economic infrastructure synergy, or better use of infrastructure (more citizen and government functions intuitively) from Amazon and Facebook.
We're entering an age in which some of the economic puzzle is solved by bringing textbooks to life.
That's my advice for now, and I hope more than one economically savvy business person takes it to heart, even if it is only short-term gains at the moment.
inventor of objective knowledge, a solution to all paradoxes, and possibly the inventor of perpetual motion.
