I have been mulling about all day doing very little, which usually means there is some computational shenanegans going on in some subclavity of the grey matter. I decided to look up the history of zero again. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/0_(number) It is so much easier to skim through these wiki outlines than wade through loads of books like I used to.
Anyway, I think the bit of maths I was trying to get hold of is about holographic matrix stuff. I don't actually think in symbols or representational stuff like this, so it's not my language.
I was getting my head round how fluctuations in money exchange works, and decided that if it was a topographical model, it would probably be easier to put a 'map' of exchange rates over a world map, and see real time fluctuations happening to get a global feel of what happens.
Then I suddenly twigged that, this is all the money becomes in algorithmic form, and it looks like Gabriel's horns have formed all over the map to me. We turned our concept of money into algorithmic data, and it has suddenly gobbled itself all up, because the 'machinery' of zero where it is used in the context of relative real value is a flawed system! I could probably draw pictures, but I can't explain why in longhand maths.
Yes we have to keep money, and go back to an actual cash/paper hands on move the stash about, cut up our credit cards. None of it as 'virtual money' can ever work properly because it has been turned into a computational substitute for actual akkers! It is simply that the computer model will not function with the demands placed on it by such high frequency money moving about in negative 'debt' form. I am not sure I actually want it to work! Cheques will be OK as a money substitute.
I also seemed to get the idea that this has something to do with the concept of 'Temple Money' and Ceaser's coinage that Jesus was quizzed on. There was a humungous fiddle going on in the exchange rate between normal coinage and the temple money required to buy the temple sacrifices with. This was why Jesus overturned the money exchange tables in the Temple courtyard.
Need to nip out so will finish this later... back.
We went to a preview sale of our local book sale for guide dogs for the blind. We managed to spend some money! £85 or thereabouts! Armed with enough books to read for a few months, and then we give back the ones we don't want to keep and sell them all next year.
A glass of slightly cheap wine helps to make purchasing a more convivial occasion! Anyway we were duly there to get in line for the doors opening fifteen minutes early, so I thought I might try explaining what I was thinking about to the Husband. I explained what a Gabriel's horn was by saying it was like a very stretchy bit of elastic fabric put over a canvass stretcher. Then you get a tiny bit of it and pull. when you have got it as far as you can pull it back you snip the pointy bit off, and imagine to goes on into infinty without ever reaching a point. (He didn't know what a Gabriel's Horn was). Anyway Gabriel's Horn boils down to pye anyway. Yup, Pie in the sky!
So I explained about quantitive easing being just printing a shed load of actual money. That this is the substitute we use to say IOU for something, but you can't give me somthing I want, so I will get what i want from someone else later. It is stored worth.
I expained that I did not think anyone would ever be able to 'pay back' any of this 'stored worth' that is considered a negative value. So I said at this point where so much needs to be repaid, it wouldn't matter if the 'worth' was positive, or negative worth!
Another little lightbulb came on! What if the worldwide computation was simply made 'positive'!!!
All it requires is for everybody to re-set their debts to 'credit', ie, turn the 'negative to a positive', and let everybody spend spend spend! This might sound ridiculous but poor countries who have a lot of debt like Greece benifit. It would mean the producing countries have people in other countries with 'money' to buy their goods!
Happy days, we all just decide which day to do it on, stop the merry go round, and then put it in forward gear. We have been running it in reverse for so long we forgot where the gear lever is. Oh I forgot, more people drive automatics in the USA, so they don't know what a 'clutch' does to an engine!
What fun! Enjoy the thought!
Love you all lots, this is probably about the most out of the box solution you are going to get to sort out this fiasco, so I hope it has a real and simple, elegant sound to it!
Money is only a concept after all.
We managed to 'invent' a millenium bug to get us all to spend a shed load of 'money' on new hardware and software solutions, how about gearing up the same gizmo for the same thing on September 21st next year, 2012? It's our wedding anniversary, and we survived this far against the odds! Then do the same thing in reverse every 50 years. (Jubilee)
Rather like turning the sand clock over and simply reversing the 'debt'/'credit' exchange.
Yes, simple and elegant, I like this idea. Probably a good time for a 'mad cow' party as well.
Try not to destroy the planet, I know I do not have children of my own, but I love everyone else's children, and all my friends, and their lives. I probably couldn't be cloned, in the sense that Moses could not pass on his spiritual genetics. I have my own inner child, who is ageless and I will come again someday. Life is such a wonderful thing to have, and we should not frighten ourselves into believing that it will end, or that our ideologies are more important than our hearth and home. And the dog, and the mice, zebra fish, cows, hens, and ourselves that share a common gene. (Did I leave out the rest of God's Creation? It would be a pretty miserable place without it, for God and US/us).
Well done all you American demon-strators, get your politics sorted out and we all get an easier life!
You need a radical revision of your whole political structure before your politicians get their hands on any more of every one else's money! We work hard for ours too, and if we don't have it we don't spend it!
Money boils down to an economy of choice.
Choose to demand more than you give, and you will be out of pocket.
Well ths is me.
Just had to eat dinner to the Montenegro/England match and watched Wayne Rooney sent off, and a few more mouthfulls. It put me right off my food. I hate TV on when I eat. i find the choreography too distubing. Especially when I have had another glass of wine, I can't block the computational drama going on. I said to my Husband it remins me too much of 'A beautiful mind' watching football, as I see the same patterns in flocks of birds too, and everything else when that part of my brain is on.
What I learned to do in hospital was 'switch it off'. I need to 'get a life!'
That's being married, having things and people that drive me nuts, give me deep anxiety, and the occasional YES! moment that make it all really the most amazing and energetic and 'off the wall' back to front 'push me pull you' sort of conflict that would never throw an extra goal in my direction unless a pure fluke turned up now and again to make it all very much something you can't take your eye off for an instant in case you miss something drama.
My Husband says I have an unprecidented level of consciousness, so I forgive him for being asleep all the time, (well nearly all the time). He gets a tongue lashing every now and then for being so asleep and horizontal. He does remind me of a bear overwintering. Still He is my Feng, and I am His, so a bit of tusk gnashing is as good communication as any when you aren't having any offspring to argue over.
Sweet dreams and an inspiring day tomorrow.
