I have to say, I don't usually look for coded messages. But this isn't really even coded - it's blatant. It's bold. And it does seem to indicate that someone thinks the end is near.

Wow.

I'll need to give this some time. It's not the sort of thing that I can take in, in just five or ten minutes - which is a good thing! Thanks for sending it my way.

Thank you for reading, Glory.

My current plan is to produce Parts 2 and 3 of Series II, next. Then to produce Part 1 of Series III - which I suspect many here will find engrossing. Then to circle back to Series I with a Part 9. And, then, to return to Series III with a Part 2 et seq.

But my mind could be changed, if people here want something else.

(I am debating a Series IV... But I think I've got my hands full building out the troika I've already promised.)

I think this Series II will - from the point of view of topicality - prove the most challenging to the readership here, just from the point of view of interest. Although I thought no one would have enthusiasm for Series I. So that shows what I know.

Oh. And, as always, thanks for reading. I am humbled. And readers make the act of writing that much more enjoyable.

I have never had the honor of encountering "smart" as a verb. If that's your innovation, please know I appreciated it and think it's the sort of cleverness that top-notch humor is made of.

May I ask: were you able to follow this? I worried about the C = log(1/Q) thing. I thought that might turn readers off.

Thanks for your trust, btw. I am starting at a remote location here, and I don't assume that anyone would see why I'm writing about any of this here. Doesn't seem related to Q - at first.

This makes sense unquestionably and motivates me to advance this Series further. We'll see how the rest react! :-)

Again, thank you for reading. I'm humbled.

I am humbled that you read this, Logic. I know it is difficult and not as casually enjoyable as Series I - which, itself, is somewhat demanding. It's about economics, after all.

Also, I appreciate the trust you place in me. I promise all of this goes somewhere and comes together. Series I, II, and III each, independently, go somewhere, and in their final state, they come together.

Your patience, trust and readership is much appreciated.

You hint toward a topic coming much later, POA. (If I may take such liberty as to abbreviate your name.)

I am uncertain exactly how far I intend to advance this Series on this site. Certainly many more Parts. But, I fear that this particular Series will be viewed as the one that the readership here has to "put up with" in order to get to the "good" Series. That said, I may venture into an exploration of another topic you hint at (different from the one I referred to initially). Specifically, the interface between science and metaphysics, and where modern scientific enterprise trespasses upon metaphysical lands.

Thank you for reading, POA. I am always surprised anyone cares what I have to say. Especially when the material is demanding, as is this material.

Didn't realize it had been down. Was that today? ...Today was busy for me.

For those of you who are interested, I have posted Series II, Part 1 of the Simon Lectures. Here: https://greatawakening.win/p/16a9lhEbrc/

Part I is not concluded with its 8 current Parts. I simply felt my thoughts to be sufficiently elaborated that I would start "building out" other Series which deal with other topics.

I think that, were that to occur, said new party would find itself with more numerous support than either existing party. ...Only if Donald were to be its first presidential candidate.

Now, we'd need to fix the voting system here. But that's a different story.

I don't generally listen to X22 - so I couldn't comment on the value of the podcast as a whole. That said, I do try to listen to Lara when I become aware that she has spoken on a matter. So I listened to this while at the gym today. It's worthwhile. Give it a listen.

Lara addressed the whole of our situation. All of its various fronts - or at least a numerous plurality of them. So it's hard to distill her message rapidly in summary form. In that sense, it is the opposite of my Lectures Series, wherein each Series focuses on a single front and proceeds linearly. Those can be distilled. She is addresses more of the whole.

Anyhow, many thanks to u/Pollycracker. Great listen.

Thanks for tagging me on this, Bubble. ...And thank you for the kind words, Kingslea. It's much easier to devote the time to write when you know you have readers who appreciate your material. :-)

Thank you for reading. I'm always shocked and more than pleased that anyone cares to read what I write.

More is coming - I promise.

May I ask: have you read the other Parts in Series I?

I hadn't made that connection between the playing cards and CBDC. I tend to think that playing cards were considered advantageous because they did not constitute campaign contributions and therefore eluded the body of laws governing them.

Thank you for reading, Inidaho. It's harder to write when you don't believe anyone will read!

  1. Series I is NOT concluded. There's more to say within the confines of this Series - most definitely. I intend to "hop around" a little bit and build out some of my other thoughts that reside in other realms and therefore properly belong in other Series. So I will bring out Parts of Series II and III, and return to Series I in somewhat "random" fashion.

  2. I see what you're saying, but CBDC is a trap. I just haven't gotten there yet. Hey, I said the Series wasn't finished! Do not embrace it.

  3. I think it would be best if we employed currency backed by something of intrinsic value. We agree on that point - most definitely.

  4. I don't think even the banks know. Read their public comments. To say they are nervous about "disintermediation" by the Fed is to understate the situation. The Fed says they won't be in the business of banking individuals, but the entire industry is nervous, based on their comments. ...An elaboration on this point is probably required by me, and would take an entire Part. :-)

Thank you, Glory. I know I've been silent and slow. Please stick with me. I've got somme interesting material coming. I promise.

Absolutely. Stay tuned for more. It's coming - I promise.

Thank you, again, for reading and commenting. This is a communal thing we have going here.

They're coming. I promise.

Their topicality will shift as I write Parts of other Series. It'll be interesting to see what people think.

Please know I appreciate you. I am flabbergasted and humbled that anyone reads these. I know they're difficult to consume, although I do my best to make them as consumable as their natures allow.

Other Series and Parts are coming. Hang in there!

Thanks so much for reading. I'm always humbled that anyone reads or cares, especially in view of the density of these.
