I was thinking more about the video on the subconscious and conscious mind (a couple of posts back).

One point the video made is that we see only a small window (in focus), - recall the bit about holding your thumb at arm's length and that = 1 degree (of 360 degrees) of vision and that is all we see at a time, and even that is a huge amount. = viewpoint limitation

Then the bit about how we learn to perceive only what is new - recall the bit about times square - the familiar is blocked and we look at what has changed or is different. To me like being in a jungle: we take in everything and then that is the frame. Then when bush rustles we are instantly alert "is it a tiger?" =perceptual change filter

Then the bit about how the subconscious "paints" things - how we perceive a few items from a scene and construct the rest from memory banks. And how we interpolate (recall the example of how the magician moves his hand in an arc so the subconscious can't interpolate as it would in a straight line movement and must stay with his hand aiding his goal in distraction). = interpolation assumption
The interpolation was also with reality causality. (Recall the two young men asking for directions a person walks by with a mirror in between and only 50% notice it was a new man continuing the conversation asking for directions) =event continuity assumption

Then how we can only focus on a few things (recall the passing of the basketball of the white jersey players and as we are trying to count the passes a gorilla goes by). =focus limitation

---------in trading --

We are looking at a chart and we have event continuity assumption, interpolation assumption, focus limitation, perceptual change filter, viewpoint limitation, etc.

We are only "seeing" a tiny window, a small porthole to reality

12:25 PM 11/9/2017

This morning while doing my morning updating I found myself thinking of something else and then wasn't sure if I had updated certain fields.

This lead me back to this "porthole" on reality. ( )

It was an example how our thoughts can drift off to a mental conversation of another topic than the one we want to be engaged in. It is like when you are reading a book and then realize you have drifted off and aren't sure which was the last paragraph you read.

Keeping our minds focused on our main goal can be difficult especially if we work on our own.

How can we combat this?

Perhaps having not only our long-term goal written out, but also the night before a plan of what we will tackle the next day and how that relates to the current module of our long-term plan.

peace, love and joy to you

Sometimes people ask what to learn when starting trading. It's a tough question to answer.

Adam Khoo
When he was 14 his dad sent him to a NLP seminar. He started with mobile dance studios made money and (then something else?) then got into trading and lost a lot of money, so he decided to learn trading and how to make it back. He has a series of videos. I think it could be a good place for a new trader

Here it the list:

Professor Carroll Quigley wrote:

The powers of financial capitalism had another far reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands to be able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalistic fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements, arrived at in private meetings and conferences.… The growth of financial capitalism made possible a centralization of world economic control and use of this power for the direct benefit of financiers and the indirect injury to all other economic groups.
------------------

Consider the 1961 statement of US President John F. Kennedy (JFK) before media personnel:

The word secrecy is repugnant in a free and open society, and we are as a people, inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, secret oaths and secret proceedings. For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy, that relies primarily on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence. It depends on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice. It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific, and political operations. Its preparations are concealed, not published, its mistakes are buried, not headlined, and its dissenters are silenced, not praised, no expenditure is questioned, no secret revealed… I am asking your help in the tremendous task of informing and alerting the American people.”



On June 4, 1963, JFK ordered the printing of Treasury dollar bills instead of Federal Reserve notes (Executive Order 11110). He also ordered that once these had been printed, the Federal Reserve notes would be withdrawn, and the Treasury bills put into circulation. A few months later (November 22, 1963) he was killed in broad daylight in front of the whole world – his brains blown out. Upon assumption of power, his successor, President Lyndon Johnson, immediately reversed the order to switch to Treasury bills showing very clearly why JFK was murdered. Another order of JFK, to militarily disengage from the Far East by withdrawing US “advisors” from Vietnam, was also immediately reversed after his death. After the Cuban crisis JFK wanted peaceful non-confrontational coexistence with the Soviet Union and that meant no wars in the world. He knew the next war would be nuclear and there would be no winners.
---------
Andrew Jackson, US President from 1829-1837, was so enraged by the tactics of bankers (Rothschilds) that he said: “You are a den of vipers. I intend to rout you out and by the Eternal God I will rout you out. If the people only understood the rank injustice of our money and banking system, there would be a revolution before morning.”

Some workmen are replacing some concrete front door steps.
I heard a dispute and one said
"No I won't do it."
more words and then again
"No I won't do it." and "You do it".
(the sequence repeated at least 10 times)


I was struck by the conviction. His boss is telling him to do something wrong and he stands by doing the right thing.

How much better things would be if people stood their ground and did the right thing.

If the accounting clerk said to Joe Corzine of MF Global when instructed to transfer funds out of segregated accounts
"No I won't do it."

When Hillary Clinton tech rep was told to delete govt documents (emails) and sanitize the drives
"No I won't do it."

When a Monsanto employee is told to throw GMO seeds into an organic farmers field so they can later sue the farmer:
"No I won't do it."

When a mechanic is told to change entire front struts that don't need it to jack up the bill to the customer
"No I won't do it."

When a dairy farmer is told to bring cows into a milking station that is knee-deep in manure and urine
"No I won't do it."

When a mining employee is told to release toxic waste into the Columbia River at night
"No I won't do it."

When a city worker is told to cut down a perfectly healthy tree to spend the budget
"No I won't do it."

When a CIA manager is told to illegally establish spying program recording all citizens calls and all emails
"No I won't do it."

When a construction worker is told to put in cheap material that will cause leak and rot when the customer has paid for good quality material
"No I won't do it."

When a doctor has a choice of prescribing an ineffective high blood pressure drug with harmful side effects when telling the patient to have an apple a day a banana a day and 2 cups of hibiscus tea will lower the blood pressure more effectively
"No I won't do it."


(we won't even go to bankers and politicians :-)

If someone has a way to send a message to her family
e.g. Twitter or Facebook
1. Sincere condolences
2. consider suing the City of San Francisco for $300,000,000

It may prevent this happening again
