March 14, 2011
This would be the week to be in the business of selling either the
special ink, or the highly specialized high rag content paper to
governments around the world, with which to print money.
Bank of Japan has printed nearly $200 billion to inject
into the markets in order to bolster the Nikkei and other Japanese
indices, which seemingly didn't care and dropped more than six
percent overnight, anyway.
One could logically ask,
"Why would they do that?"
And the answer is
similar to the macroeconomic answer to "Why 9/11?"
In both cases,
there was a direct systemic threat existing to the continuation of
orderly global markets. If the run on Japanese stocks had not been
slowed, then a much larger decline, perhaps 10 percent, or more,
might have been possible and that wouldn't have been good since it
would have nearly instantly propagated Japan's pain globally and
potentially have resulted in global economic collapse.
The reason for this is something called the Herstett effect, which
I've told you about before. Most people don't appreciate how close
the failure of Germany's Bank Herstatt in 1974 came to ending
financial life on earth, although it's
well-described in this
Much gnawing and gnashing of teeth followed and
a system of
"simultaneous settlements" was developed to avoid systemic risk. The
idea, which has been described as a kind of "financial firewalling"
is what's going on with Japan.
Of course, as with any good set of hackers and computers, financial
hackers do - over time - find ways to break any firewall, since at
some level all markets are now linked. It's perhaps the "hacking the
financial firewalls" which could lead to the fractal ugliness.
The possibility which stares at us from
Clif High's predictive
linguistics work, is that we are now only 11-days away from major
release language associated with March 25th.
The main items concerning Clif at the moment are:
How do we
communicate to the general population that the term "earthquake" is
not a singular phenomena and that there's a much broader context
which is not being communicated to the public, specifically, the
tearing of the planet's crust which may be drive by a
little-discussed mechanism of Earth's plasmas core expanding in
response to energies from the Sun.
We've talked about this a bit and the limitations of human thought
come into focus by observing that not all earth movement events are
necessarily simple tectonic in nature.
One has only to observe that Vancouver Island, which in antiquity
was connected both to the lower British Columbia Mainland to the
east, and the Northern Washington on the south, was showed away from
both to the extent that on the East, the inside passage to the north
end of now Vancouver Island was formed and to the south, the Strait
of Juan de Fuca was created.
Not to pick a fight with tectonic simplists, but conceptually,
plasma expansion accounts for the widely evident north-south lay of
many mountain ranges, and we don't need to accept tectonics are
eon's long simple bank shots, to use a pub & billiards term.
Tearing is a big deal because the conceptual framework is much
larger and accounts for things like
Japan moving laterally 8-feet
long rip/tear on the ocean floor. Or, don't they like to
talk about such things?
The other thing Clif's worried about is how to communicate the
alternative radiation treatments which are available in the event
convention supplies of KI (potassium Iodide) run out.
For example, there are references to reduced mortality of guinea
fed chlorophyll-rich diets (wheatgrass smoothie, anyone?).
Other claims of moderating impacts of radiation from eating fresh
may be found here.
Back to center stage, we continue to watch the work pair count
around the two words "radioactive" and "volcano" which should arise
as a temporal marker just before we get the major US quake (likely
West Coast) which arises in model-space as an expectation along with
the arrival of the "ill winds" in the USA and the word pairing
"radioactive volcano" showing up.
Not to get right freaked-out about stuff, but in Sunday's
Peoplenomics.com report (where we reported on the risks of
MOX/metal oxide reactors of the Fukushima 3 type which use a mix of
plutonium some number of hours before the global press) we explained
the word pairing and expectations of a huge (as in bigger than Japan
quake by some good measure) and urged subscribers to get the one
month or more of food and water as soon as possible.
At the time we posted that Peoplenomics report, Google's news engine
showed only nine hits. As of 06:10 CDT, that count was up to 44, and
going nonlinear as the 'new language" grabs hold, just as the
predictive linguistics outlook would have us expect.
This leaves the huge & ugly problem of what else is in that part of
the model-space. The US mega quake is part of that set.
"hot date" of March 25th looms, which is very, very, ugly close to
March 19 Super Moon.
Astrologer Richard Nolte has been studying this Super Moon
occurrence at his site, but in linguistics, the window of concern is
March 25 for release language.
By the way, release language is the kind where when you tell your
friends on the phone what you see happening, it's marked by the use
of an expletive like,
"Oh f**k dude, did you just see California is
now an Island?"
That's release - emotionally.
So we go into this week expecting what airline pilots would refer to
as somewhere between "light chop" of,
"return to your seats and
fasten your seatbelts, and return your tray tables to the upright
and lock position. We're expecting a few bumps up ahead..."
Yeah... a few... my foot.
