  • Stocks Rally Again: What's This All About? [View article]
    "I think, therefore I am" is the bedrock of quantum physics. Thought precedes, and produces, existence.

    The problem with that is that the "masses" do not really control the markets, the insiders and professionals do. If anyone can rise above herd mentality it should be the professional traders.

    "For consciousness to exist, something must first exist for it to become conscious of. Furthermore, someone must first exist to possess a consciousness. Reality is primary and objective; it exists independently of anyone’s consciousness. Consciousness is secondary and cannot make facts; it can only discover facts."

    This is completely opposed to new thinking in quantum theory, which says consciousness precedes reality. As Berkeley wrote over 300 years ago, "To be is to be perceived".

    As to facts, quantum theory has now shown that we "conflate" wave probabilities into matter through the act of perception. In other words, we create reality by perceiving it. When we view the "spin" of quantum particles, they move in the direction of my intention. When I intend the particle to spin to the left, it is seen as spinning to the left, and vice versa.

    Our thoughts and perceptions - our consciousness - create reality.

    "Things, from the very large to the very small, do not actually exist until they are observed. The house next door does not exist until it is perceived. The palm of your hand does not exist until you perceive it . . . Something can either be true, or it can be perceived. It cannot be both. We can be aware of something but not be aware of the truth of what it is."

    This is not speculation, it is proven scientific fact, although the language can be misleading. It is not exactly true to say "things do not exist", rather, they do not exist in the form we normally think of as being "real" or "material". They exist as potential wave energy. Light is both a particle and a wave.

    The old existential idea that "existence precedes essence" has been turned upside down by new revelations in quantum theory. "When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change".

    If it were that obvious everyone would be rich, and plainly everyone is not rich. The market rarely does what you think or expect it to. The "herd" this time has been calling for a market crash for months. If you are a contrarian, wouldn't much of the negative news be priced into the markets?

    Why were "millions of investors, analysts, hedge fund managers etc." buying stocks just before the market crashed in 2008? What didn't they know?

    "AAPL has 90% probability of being able to form the 4th and 5th waves based on the extended 3rd wave actual run."

    And those assumptions would be based on...

    Just like MSFT has done in the last 10 years.

    You had to write all that to say Apple has an iconic brand? How many iconic brands have bitten the dust?

    "Will Canon, Nikon, Olympus and others disappear as phone cameras get better?" Does that include Polaroid?

    Why is it such a mystery to everyone that the larger a company gets the slower it will grow, relatively speaking?

    Now if we can only figure out a way to grow earnings exponentially . . .

    Does that assume Apple has no competition?

    You're right. In 15 years when we no longer need oil for energy, Exxon will be history.

    Comparing oil, a natural resource whose days are numbered, to a car, - a vehicle for transportation that can undergo infinite metamorphosis - is nonsensical.

    That is, of course, until we find a way to turn oil into gold, an even more useless natural resource.
