I've written that the most recent Day-Cycle began under Ronald Reagan in 1983 and lasted until 2001, the year America's twin symbols of masculine power, the Twin Towers, were destroyed by Muslim Terrorists.  I've written that the Day-Cycle is the 'filling up' process, the expansion of credit/debt, as well as empire, the expansion of the economic bubble, and that this processs runs for 18 years and then is replaced by its opposite or supplement, the in-breathing of the world, contraction of credit/debt, deflation, a Night, which also lasts for 18 years.

In the language of modern physics, the Day-Cycle is the Big Bang (and expansion from zero to 1), the Night-Cycle is the Big Crunch (and contraction back to zero).

One would expect charts of American rate of housing ownership to also reflect these cycles of expansion (out-breathing, expiration) and contraction (in-breathing, inspiration).  The word expiration, out-breathing, seems to suggest that death is part of the process of taking on life; the word inspiration, in-breathing, seems to suggest that death is not what we think it is, not an end, but some kind of enlightening process.

My contention is that these cycles go on and on, cycles of external worldly opportunity, followed by cycles of internal, other-worldy opportunity.  Expansion of the body, followed by expansion of the soul.

The chart below, a gift from Clusterstock, does show the Homeownership rate in America bottoming at the bottom of the pit of our Night Cycle (roughly): 1983.  Then expanding, with the bubble economy America inflated.  In fact, the bubble should have been deflated beginning in 2001, but messianic Alan Greenspan knew better and decided to inflate us all the way to heaven, which, of course, failed.  Now we have a long fall.  Anyone saying that housing is bottomed should look at this chart and mark the area of 2019 as a likely bottom of the present decline.

I have searched for charts with a longer duration.  If anyone has access to a historic chart of this data, I would love to get a look at it.
