If a credit event occurs, the typical contract either settles by delivery by the buyer to the seller of a (usually defaulted) debt obligation of the reference entity against a payment by the seller of the par value ("AQ-388 PHYSICAL SETTLEMENT") or the seller pays the buyer the difference between the par value and the market price of a specified debt obligation, typically determined in an auction ("AQ-290 CASH SETTLEMENT"). A credit default swap resembles an insurance policy, as it can be used by a debt holder to hedge, or insure against a default under the debt instrument. However, because there is no requirement to actually hold any asset or suffer a loss, a credit default swap can also be used for speculative purposes and it is not generally considered insurance for regulatory purposes; AQ-318 CREDIT DERIVATIVE, AQ-707 RIGHT TO A PAYOFF IF THERE IS A CREDIT EVENT, AQ-1016 CREDIT DERIVATIVE CONTRACT BETWEEN TWO COUNTERPARTIES) = GOË PLATINUM GROUP = HAYDEN PLANETARIUM = IMPLIED DEMAND CURVE (AQ-669 THE INTERNATIONAL FINANCE MULTIPLIER) = ISLAMIC MATHEMATICS (AQ-1052 THE FORMATION OF “ISLAMIC MATHEMATICS” SOURCES AND CONDITIONS) = NATIONAL INTEREST (AQ-236 STAATSRÄSON, AQ-246 STAATSRASON, AQ-264 STAATSRAISON) = ONE THING IS NEEDFUL (AQ-529 PORRO UNUM EST NECESSARIUM; {xvii} AQ-366 THE BASHO OF ECONOMICS, AQ-2222) = OVERBURDEN WEIGHT (AQ-374 THE DEEP, HOT BIOSPHERE) = RAKECLAW GARGANTUAN {claw search} (Naya teems with gargantuans, titanic monsters to whom both nature and civilization defer; AQ-77 NAYA, AQ-240 SHARDS OF ALARA) = SOUP OF AER AND ERATH (AQ-231 ERATHICATION, AQ-2361) = THE FEAST OF THE LORD (AQ-151 SUKKOT) = TOKEN OF PERDITION (AQ-283 ENDEIXIS APOLEIA, AQ-311 ENDEIXIS APOLEIAS; AQ-239 PHILIPPIANS 1:28) = TRIANGULAR VOYAGE (AQ-526 THE TRANSATLANTIC SLAVE TRADE) = UTOPIAN SOCIALISM (AQ-161 JUSTINE).

AQ 2222 = PORRO UNUM EST NECESSARIUM, ONE THING IS NEEDFUL-IN THIS CASE, THE NEEDFUL THING IS AN ONTOLOGICAL SKEW TOWARDS SUBSTANTIVISM ({xvii} AQ-366 THE BASHO OF ECONOMICS, AQ-340, 529, 1156) = THE COORDINATION OF INDIVIDUAL BARBULES IN THE FORMATION OF THE EYE PATTERN MUST BE CONTROLLED BY THE INSTRUCTION CODED IN GENES (AQ-123 JIAN ZI, AQ-408 STRUCTURAL COLORING) = VIGILANCE… ALWAYS ATTENTIVE TO THE DANGERS OF SPACEFLIGHT; NEVER ACCEPTING SUCCESS AS A SUBSTITUTE FOR RIGOR IN EVERYTHING WE DO.

notes to self, connecting dots, introducing shards of alara (released 03-October). first set of Alara Block (codename: rock). paper & scissors (Conflux & Alara Reborn) 06-Feb-09 & 30-Apr-09. bought first MTG card in Ohio last year. MTG wordset in AZ wordlists ~ usually don't transfer wordsets unless something comes up. A Secular Age (Disenchantment in my use (and partly in Weber’s) really translates Weber’s term “Entzauberung,” where the key kernel concept is “Zauber,” magic), introduced MTG to AQ: AQ-262 ENTZAUBERUNG (surprised when i googled MTG card). then, D&G (God is a Lobster, or a double pincer, a double bind. Not only do strata come at ... Each stratum exhibits phenomena constitutive of double articulation) double-pincer from cyclonopedia, page 17 (finish typing). MTGdb: claw (darn, forgot pincers).

AQ 232 = DOUBLE-PINCER = ANTI-OEDIPUS = BIREFRINGENCE = CAIRNS-SMITH (AQ-288 THE LIFE PUZZLE, AQ-374 THE DEEP, HOT BIOSPHERE) = CIPHEROLOGY = CIRCADIAN CLOCK = COMPLEXITY = ENTRAINMENT (two interacting oscillating systems, which have different periods when they function independently, assume the same period (synchrony); The system with the greater frequency slows down, and the other accelerates. AQ-354 CHRISTIAAN HUYGENS, a notable physicist, coined the term entrainment after he noticed, in 1666, that two AQ-295 PENDULUM CLOCKS had moved into the same swinging rhythm, and subsequent experiments duplicated this process. Notably, the two pendula stabilized not in synchrony, but in AQ-174 ANTIPHASE. They satisfy the definition of entrainment because they have the same period, even though they have opposite phase. The accepted explanation for this is that small amounts of energy are transferred between the two systems when they are out of phase in such a way as to produce AQ-264 NEGATIVE FEEDBACK. As they assume a more stable phase relationship, the amounts of energy gradually reduce to zero. In the realm of physics, entrainment appears to be related to AQ-175 RESONANCE; AQ-289 CIRCADIAN RHYTHM, AQ-454 SUPRACHIASMATIC NUCLEUS) = FEAR OF FLYING = GOAT OF MENDES = GUNKY OBJECT = HOSHANAH RABBAH = INTENTIONAL = LAYLAT AL-QADR = LIQUID BINDER (AQ-374 THE DEEP, HOT BIOSPHERE) = LORD OF LUST (AQ-95 BELIAL) = NAPHT-NEXUS = NOTE ON BELIAL = PROPRAETOR (AQ-285 ANTISTRATEGOS; AQ-211 ANTICHRIST) = PSYCHONAUT = THE GOD OF HOPE = THE MAGNOLIAS = TOWER OF BABEL = VERY MESSY (AQ-420 SHOGGOTHIC MATERIALISM) = WHITE ENSIGN.

AQ 370 = FREE MARKET PENDULUM (AQ-826 SAVING CAPITALISM FROM CATASTROPHIC MELTDOWN) = THE DEBT INSTRUMENT (AQ-340 CREDIT DEFAULT SWAP).

strata: AQ-524 GEOLOGY OF THE GRAND CANYON AREA + AQ-279 VISHNU SCHIST (also: Exorcist opening scene, Note #4, ECUMENON / OECUMENON / ECUMENE &c). forget how conflux showed up, but think that googled shards of alara, which links The Year of Living Changerously.

AQ 567 = THE YEAR OF LIVING CHANGEROUSLY (AQ-240 SHARDS OF ALARA, AQ-755 MAY YOU UNDERSTAND THE NECESSITY OF CHANGE) = NEMESIS UND GESCHICHTSDIALEKTIK? (Koepke, Wulf: Nemesis und Geschichtsdialektik? 85-96; AQ-818 SELECTED BIBLIOGRAPHY: JOHANN GOTTFRIED HERDER (1744-1803)) = THE MOST IMPORTANT GUIDEPOST (AQ-399 GUIDEPOST CONNECTION; AQ-454 EMPIRICAL GEOPHILOSOPHY) = WIR SIND WIR (EIN DEUTSCHLANDLIED) (AQ-236 WIR SIND WIR).

don't know german :( but GESCHICHTSDIALEKTIK = HISTORICAL DIALECTIC?

AQ 351 = HISTORICAL DIALECTIC (AQ-807 O, HISTORICAL DIALECTIC, WE STAND ON GUARD FOR THEEa) = HISTORICAL NEMESIS (On close inspection theological criticism – genuinely progressive though it was at the inception of the movement – is seen in the final analysis to be nothing but the culmination and consequence of the old philosophical, and especially the Hegelian, transcendentalism, twisted into a theological caricature. This interesting example of historical justice, which now assigns to theology, ever philosophy’s spot of infection, the further role of portraying in itself the negative dissolution of philosophy, i.e., the process of its decay – this historical nemesis I shall demonstrate on another occasion; Marx, Preface, Economic and Philosophical Manuscripts of 1844).

this brings up Herder's double-pincer. STAATSRAISON = REASON OF STATE (raison d'état). am i correct thinking STAATS = German + RAISON = French? höhere = supreme & frevelnd = wicked, criminal?


AQ-353 HÖHERE STAATSRAISON || AQ-464 FREVELNDE STAATSRAISONS

Imagining Europe in the XVIIIth century: the case of Herder
Dominic Eggel
Note #170

In a very relevant passage of the "Zerstreute Blätter", Herder also described Nemesis-Adrastea as the "höhere Staatsraison", that would come to terms with the actual, "frevelnde Staatsraisons": "So trieb die Staatsraison ihr Werk fort; ein Tag vernichtete den andern, ein Gesetz, ein Decret das Andre, bis endlich ein des göttlichen Rechts Erfahrner seinen Mitbürgern Muth zusprach: "fasset Herz, ihr Brüder", sprach er, es giebt noch eine höhere Staatsraison in der Welt, "deren Werk es ist, alle ungerechte, frevelnde Staatsraisons zu ihrer Zeit, mit Schauder zu vernichten"" (SWS XVI, p.146).

AQ 572 = A STYLIZED ACCOUNT OF THE CRISIS (AQ-669 THE INTERNATIONAL FINANCE MULTIPLIER, AQ-1038) = ON WORLD HISTORY: AN ANTHOLOGY ({Johann Gottfried Herder} Hans Adler and Ernest A. Menze, Editors, Translated by Ernest A. Menze and Michael Palma).

AQ 579 = A CHINK IN THE ARMOUR OF LATE CAPITAL (AQ-596 XENOECONOMICS AND CAPITAL UNBOUND) = NEMESIS. AN INSTRUCTIVE SYMBOL ({p49} AQ-572 ON WORLD HISTORY: AN ANTHOLOGY).

AQ 1833 = CALVO, GUILLERMO. 1998. "CAPITAL MARKET CONTAGION AND RECESSION: AN EXPLANATION OF THE RUSSIAN VIRUS." MIMEOGRAPH (AQ-669 THE INTERNATIONAL FINANCE MULTIPLIER) = THE SHARDS WOULD BE A REFRACTION OF THE ORIGINAL PLANE AS SEEN THROUGH A TWISTED THREE-COLOR MANA KALEIDOSCOPE (AQ-380 RIPPING A WORLD APART).

AQ 319 = THE CAPITAL-VIRUS (AQ-596 XENOECONOMICS AND CAPITAL UNBOUND) = OU NEMESIS TROAS (AQ-345 NEMESIS AND THE ZONA).

AQ 619 = SURELY THERE IS NO BLAME IF TROJANS… (AQ-345 NEMESIS AND THE ZONA) = LOCK INTO COMMODITIZATION TAKE-OFF (AQ-178 MELTDOWN) = SLOT-EXCITED DIELECTRIC RESONATOR.

AQ 371 = FASSET HERZ, IHR BRÜDER (AQ-378 ZERSTREUTE BLÄTTER) = YARDSTICK OF ADRASTEA ({p51} AQ-572 ON WORLD HISTORY: AN ANTHOLOGY).

AQ 483 = BANT - ESPER - GRIXIS - JUND - NAYA (AQ-240 SHARDS OF ALARA) = ODYSSEY (MAGIC: THE GATHERING) (24th Magic:The Gathering expert-level expansion set. Released in September, 2001, Odyssey is the first set in the Odyssey Block. Its expansion symbol is a small image of the Mirari).

AQ-375 = WHICH PLANE ARE YOU ON? = BLOODTHORN TAUNTER (AQ-77 NAYA) = CAPITALISM'S ORIGINS = DOUBLE-PRONGED DILEMMA ({p198} AQ-337 RACE IN NORTH AMERICA) = GOING AROUND THE HORN (AQ-278 AROUND THE HORN) = PETROLEUM FEEDSTOCK (AQ-138 CRACKING) = QUEST FOR THE MIRARI (Yes, in this tournament it pays more to find the AQ-122 MIRARI than it does to reduce your opponent's life to zero. That's because the entire Odyssey Block plotline is that an ancient artifact of great power--the Mirari--is being hunted by every mage on the continent. Throughout the three novels, the Mirari passes from hand to hand, always pretty much ruining the life of whoever uses it. But forget about that whole “ruining your life” business for the moment. Win or lose, you must find the Mirari. And once you've found it, you must protect it) = SPEARBREAKER BEHEMOTH (AQ-77 NAYA) = THE HLIS' BALANCE SHEETS = THE TRUTH COMES OUT = THIS LEVIATHAN-STATE.

AQ 423 = DIE "NEMESIS" DER GESCHICHTE (AQ-818 SELECTED BIBLIOGRAPHY: JOHANN GOTTFRIED HERDER (1744-1803)) = THE NEMESIS OF HISTORY ({p51} For, there is one Nemesis, who guards right and prudence appropriate to humankind; or, should she be envisioned in the shape of two, they stand as sisters with equal attributes, as rulers of the world, beside each other upon one chariot. Though the time has not yet come that one would trust this truth, that "right is the highest prudence, that besides it there is no other," and act accordingly; it was considered a weakness in the venerable Grotius4 that he believed in a "Law of Humankind in War and Peace"; and historians who, based on principles of integrity, denied practical prejudices, in particular the false honor of their nation, usually were meanly repaid by the political hacks. The struggle between truth and error, however, is generally astir, and the decision as to whom victory should fall could not remain in doubt to even the most shallow doubter, since truth verifies itself. AQ-572 ON WORLD HISTORY: AN ANTHOLOGY; AQ-378 ZERSTREUTE BLÄTTER).

AQ 2104 = OUR SOLE RESPONSIBILITY IS TO PRODUCE SOMETHING SMARTER THAN WE ARE; ANY PROBLEMS BEYOND THAT ARE NOT OURS TO SOLVE = THE MOST DAMAGING DISEASE OF HISTORY IS AN EPIDEMIC DELUSION OF NATION AND EPOCH, TO WHICH IN ALL AGES A FRAIL HUMANITY IS INCLINED ({p56–con't} Nothing is deemed more important by us than the present; nothing is rarer and greater than that which we experience. Should this narrow sentiment now be joined also by blossoming national pride, ancient prejudices of several kinds, contempt for other peoples and times, ambitious external endeavors, conquests, victories, above all, at last, that comfortable or grand vanity, that deems itself as the center of the world and the pinnacle of perfection and views everything under this premise, then this entire Chinese portrait is pervaded by a distortion of events and figures which, given appropriate talent on the part of the presenter indeed may entertain, perhaps even enchant, but in the end still will be quite tiresome. We feel deceived by the sparkling presentation and we are indignant because of this deception; for the subsequent period has stripped off the false veneer, rearranged the events, and patterned the figures free of adornment. How few are the histories of the previous century, and of those that preceded it, which may yet be read and found in agreement with our judgment of the merit of things! Presumptions, designs, battles, encomia, victories—at the end of the century everything had received a different measure; and who guarantees us, yes, who would be so presumptuous to think that he already possesses this measure, corresponding most certainly and clearly to the intentions and the original estimate of things? At any rate, we have progressed in the meantime. ¶ The history of William of Orange and Queen Anne suffered the same fate, though for other reasons. The ferment of change among Whigs and Tories, who confounded a hundred things and altered their aspirations with every change of ministries, yes, who often did not themselves know what they wanted, for a long time made impossible and unvarnished view of events and characters. Swift's history of the last years of this queen9 is the driest of his works, and though it aspires to be honest, it is yet also one-sided and partisan. An awakening is called for to bring order to the dream and the urgency of events, if it is—dreamed indeed. AQ-572 ON WORLD HISTORY: AN ANTHOLOGY, Chapter 7 History {excerpt from "Adrastea"} [Note #9. Swift wrote his "History of the Four Last Years of the Queen" in 1712-13. It was not published until 1758]).

AQ 367 = PRINCIPLE OF MEASURE ({p49} AQ-572 ON WORLD HISTORY: AN ANTHOLOGY) = THE SPIRIT OF THE LAW (AQ-426 DE CAPTIVITATE BABYLONICA).

AQ 372 = THE DECRETUM GRATIANI = POCO DI PIÙ E POCO DI MENO ({p51} AQ-572 ON WORLD HISTORY: AN ANTHOLOGY).

AQ 724 = THE LITTLE BIT MORE AND THE LITTLE BIT LESS = A MANA COST UNIQUE IN MAGIC'S 15-YEAR HISTORY (AQ-339 SPHINX SOVEREIGN, AQ-409 THE RIDDLE OF THE SPHINX).

AQ 339 = SPHINX SOVEREIGN = DIEUT ET MON DROICT = GOETHE AND THE GREEKS.

AQ 236 = STAATSRÄSON = CYCLIZATION (AQ-1115 THE PROCESS OF CYCLIZING, OF BECOMING OR CAUSING TO BECOME AROMATIC).

AQ 328 = INORGANIC REACTION = SHARDS OF ALARA BLOCK (AQ-602 SHARDS OF ALARA - CONFLUX - ALARA REBORN).

AQ 240 = AJANI VENGEANT (AQ-496 SHARDS OF ALARA PRERELEASE CARD) = LIGAND EXCHANGE (AQ-405 CATION EXCHANGE CAPACITY) = SHARDS OF ALARA (AQ-299 THREE-COLOR PLAY).

AQ 324 = ALARA, A WORLD BROKEN = RHODIUM CATALYST.

AQ 346 = DIAMOND KALEIDOSCOPE (AQ-930 A PRETTY TOY. NOW SHOW ME ITS TACTICAL APPLICATIONS; AQ-380 RIPPING A WORLD APART) = THE ULTIMATE DRAGON (AQ-211 SARKHAN VOL, AQ-286 ULTIMATE DRAGON).

AQ 458 = BENZENE RHODIUM CATALYST = SARKHAN HAS THREE ABILITIES (AQ-1031, AQ-1051, AQ-1799 [-2]: GAIN CONTROL OF TARGET CREATURE UNTIL END OF TURN. UNTAP THAT CREATURE. IT GAINS HASTE UNTIL END OF TURN; AQ-324 ALARA, A WORLD BROKEN, AQ-1799 THE GREAT SERVICE THAT HIP HOP CAN STILL PERFORM FOR POP IS TO REMIND US OF ITS ESSENTIAL LACK OF PRESENCE).
