American Alethiometer



QWERTY 7605 = AN ALETHIOMETER IS A DEVICE WHICH MEASURES THE TRUTH. THE WORD COMES FROM THE GREEK ALĒTHEIA (ἀλήθεια) FOR "TRUTH" AND METER FOR "MEASURE", SO ALETHIOMETER LITERALLY MEANS "TRUTH MEASURER". A MISUNDERSTANDING OVER THE AUTHOR'S EARLY TITLE FOR THE TRILOGY ("THE GOLDEN COMPASSES"), AND THE RESEMBLANCE OF THE DEVICE TO A LARGE NAVIGATIONAL COMPASS CAUSED THE AMERICAN PUBLISHERS OF THE FIRST BOOK, ORIGINALLY ENTITLED NORTHERN LIGHTS, TO RETITLE THAT BOOK THE GOLDEN COMPASS.[1] IT IS DESCRIBED IN NORTHERN LIGHTS THUS: "IT LAY HEAVILY IN HER HANDS, THE CRYSTAL FACE GLEAMING, THE GOLDEN BODY EXQUISITELY MACHINED. IT WAS VERY LIKE A CLOCK, OR A COMPASS, FOR THERE WERE HANDS POINTING TO PLACES AROUND THE DIAL, BUT INSTEAD OF THE HOURS OR THE POINTS OF THE COMPASS THERE WERE SEVERAL LITTLE PICTURES, EACH OF THEM PAINTED WITH EXTRAORDINARY PRECISION, AS IF ON IVORY WITH THE FINEST AND SLENDEREST SABLE BRUSH. SHE TURNED THE DIAL AROUND TO LOOK AT THEM ALL. THERE WAS AN ANCHOR; AN HOURGLASS SURMOUNTED BY A SKULL; A CHAMELEON, A BULL, A BEEHIVE...THIRTY-SIX ALTOGETHER (...)" = IT IS NO ACCIDENT THAT MARX SHOULD HAVE BEGUN WITH AN ANALYSIS OF COMMODITIES WHEN, IN THE TWO GREAT WORKS OF HIS MATURE PERIOD, HE SET OUT TO PORTRAY CAPITALIST SOCIETY IN ITS TOTALITY AND TO LAY BARE ITS FUNDAMENTAL NATURE. FOR AT THIS STAGE IN THE HISTORY OF MANKIND THERE IS NO PROBLEM THAT DOES NOT ULTIMATELY LEAD BACK TO THAT QUESTION AND THERE IS NO SOLUTION THAT COULD NOT BE FOUND IN THE SOLUTION TO THE RIDDLE OF COMMODITY-STRUCTURE. OF COURSE THE PROBLEM CAN ONLY BE DISCUSSED WITH THIS DEGREE OF GENERALITY IF IT ACHIEVES THE DEPTH AND BREADTH TO BE FOUND IN MARX'S OWN ANALYSES. THAT IS TO SAY, THE PROBLEM OF COMMODITIES MUST NOT BE CONSIDERED IN ISOLATION OR EVEN REGARDED AS THE CENTRAL PROBLEM IN ECONOMICS, BUT AS THE CENTRAL, STRUCTURAL PROBLEM OF CAPITALIST SOCIETY IN ALL ITS ASPECTS. ONLY IN THIS CASE CAN THE STRUCTURE OF COMMODITY-RELATIONS BE MADE TO YIELD A MODEL OF ALL THE OBJECTIVE FORMS OF BOURGEOIS SOCIETY TOGETHER WITH ALL THE SUBJECTIVE FORMS CORRESPONDING TO THEM (Reification and the Consciousness of the Proletariat).

QWERTY 1779 = THEN STAID THE FERVID WHEELS, AND IN HIS HAND HE TOOK THE GOLDEN COMPASSES, PREPARED IN GOD'S ETERNAL STORE, TO CIRCUMSCRIBE THIS UNIVERSE, AND ALL CREATED THINGS: ONE FOOT HE CENTERED, AND THE OTHER TURNED ROUND THROUGH THE VAST PROFUNDITY OBSCURE (Paradise Lost, Book 7, lines 224–229) = BEHOLD, LORD, FOR THE CITY ONCE FULL OF RICHES IS MADE DESOLATE, SHE WHO RULED THE PEOPLES SITS IN SADNESS: THERE IS NONE TO CONSOLE HER BUT THOU, OUR GOD § SHE WEPT SORELY IN THE NIGHT, AND HER TEARS WERE ON HER CHEEKS: THERE IS NONE TO CONSOLE HER BUT THOU, OUR GOD = DÈS L'ANNÉE SUIVANTE, ERYCIUS PUTEANUS PUBLIAIT, TOUJOURS CHEZ PLANTIN, UN OUVRAGE INTITULÉ PIETATIS THAUMATA, DANS LEQUEL IL ÉNUMÉRAIT EFFECTIVEMENT 1022 VARIATIONS DU VERS ANNONCÉS PAR BAUHUSIUS. VOICI UNIQUEMENT LES PREMIÈRES DE CES PERMUTATIONS ({257} Journal of Neo-Latin Studies) = STS-61-C COLUMBIA (OV-102) + ROBERT L. GIBSON + CHARLES F. BOLDEN + FRANKLIN R. CHANG-DIAZ + STEVEN A. HAWLEY + GEORGE D. NELSON + ROBERT J. CENKER + CLARENCE WILLIAM "BILL" NELSON + PAYLOAD: SATCOM-KU2, LEASAT-5, MSL-2, CHAMP, IR-IE, SSIP(X3), GAS(X13) + LAUNCH: JANUARY 12, 1986, 6:55:00 A.M. EST = THE FILM WAS SCORED BY RANDY EDELMAN. THE MAIN THEME SONG, "TO THE STARS," WAS USED IN THE FILM TWO BROTHERS, SUCH FILM TRAILERS AS MULAN AND SEVEN YEARS IN TIBET, AND CLIP MONTAGES AT THE ACADEMY AWARDS, MAKING IT A WELL KNOWN FILM SCORE (Dragonheart) = THE SOUL IS A FIRE THAT DARTS ITS RAYS THROUGH ALL THE SENSES; IT IS IN THIS FIRE THAT EXISTENCE CONSISTS; ALL THE OBSERVATIONS AND ALL THE EFFORTS OF PHILOSOPHERS OUGHT TO TURN TOWARDS THIS ME, THE CENTRE AND MOVING POWER OF OUR SENTIMENTS AND OUR IDEAS ({Soul (The)} Madame de Staël-Germany. Pt. III. Ch. II. • {418} Rosicrucian Digest 1939) = TUESDAY'S ELECTION WAS INDEED A "SHELLACKING" FOR THE DEMOCRATS, AS PRESIDENT OBAMA ADMITTED AFTER A LONG NIGHT OF BAD NEWS. IT WAS HARDLY AN ORDER FROM THE AMERICAN PEOPLE TO DISCARD THE PROGRESS OF THE LAST TWO YEARS AND START OVER AGAIN (Sorting Out the Election).

QWERTY 1588 = NOW, UH, MS. VITO, BEING AN EXPERT ON GENERAL AUTOMOTIVE KNOWLEDGE, CAN YOU TELL ME... WHAT WOULD THE CORRECT IGNITION TIMING BE ON A 1955 BEL AIR CHEVROLET, WITH A 327 CUBIC-INCH ENGINE AND A FOUR-BARREL CARBURETOR? = THE IDENTIFICATION OF THIS AREA WITH A BALANCE BECAME ESTABLISHED IN THE FIRST CENTURY BC AMONG THE ROMANS, ALTHOUGH EXACTLY WHEN IT WAS INTRODUCED AND BY WHOM HAS BEEN LOST IN THE MISTS OF HISTORY (Star Tales) = THE SOVEREIGN'S POSITION IS LIKE A RETIRED BUSINESSMAN WHO HAS HANDED OVER THE COMPANY HE HAS BUILT UP TO A BOARD OF DIRECTORS. THE BOARD CAN, IF IT INSISTS, IGNORE HIM BUT THEY WOULD DO BETTER WERE THEY TO CONSULT HIM (A Spirit Undaunted) = {Dee's wife-swapping episode (private correspondence)} = TIME BEGINS AND IS REGULATED BY THE ELDERS, WHICH IN FACT IS PRECISELY WHY THEY ARE SAID TO BE OLD. THIS CONNECTION PREVIOUSLY APPEARS IN THE THIRD KEY, WHERE THE BANNERS OF GOD ARE VISUALLY REPRESENTED AS A CLOCK FACE.

QWERTY 1858 = CEARA TIBI UXOR, CARIOR TIBI SAPIENTIA, CARISSIMUS TIBI EGO. ELECTUS TREMIS, AC HESITANDO PECCAS: NOLI IGITUR [HESITARE] AD GENIUM, ET CARNEM SAPERE; SED OBTEMPERA MIHI: DUCTOR ENIM TUUS SUM, ET AUCTOR SPIRITUS OMNIBUS. HEC OMNIA A ME SUNT, ET LICITA VOBIS ({49} The Complete Enochian Dictionary) = IT IS KEY THAT THE NEWLY ELECTED POLITICAL REGIME UNDERSTAND THE VITAL ROLE THAT THE AEROSPACE AND DEFENSE INDUSTRIES PLAY FOR THE ECONOMY. IF DEFENSE BUDGETS ARE CUT, THAT WILL FORCE LAYOFFS INDUSTRY-WIDE, WHICH WILL FURTHER DAMAGE THE ECONOMY (How is the Financial Crisis Affecting the Aerospace Industry?).

QWERTY 1299 = CHAIRMAN BEN S. BERNANKE • AT THE SIXTH EUROPEAN CENTRAL BANK CENTRAL BANKING CONFERENCE, FRANKFURT, GERMANY • NOVEMBER 19, 2010 • EMERGING FROM THE CRISIS: WHERE DO WE STAND? = IF THERE WAS ANY LITERATURE IN POLITICS THAT I WAS DRAWN TO, IT WAS TO GRAMSCI WITH HIS EMPHASIS ON STRUGGLE FOR IDEOLOGICAL HEGEMONY AND THE NEED TO CREATE A NEW COMMON SENSE (Beyond Capital) = THE COMPLETE STORY OF A PIECE OF MATHEMATICS CAN NEVER BE TOLD. THE FACT THAT L IS RANDOM AND INVOLVES THE ENTIRE HISTORY OF THE PROCESS X MAKES THEOREM 1 RATHER UNSATISFACTORY (The Hawkins Sieve and Brownian Motion) = THE INCREASING GAP BETWEEN THE TROPICAL AND SIDEREAL ZODIACS. THE AYANAMSA, WHICH CHANGES CONTINUALLY AT THE RATE OF APPROXIMATELY 50" A YEAR, IS CURRENTLY ABOUT 24° (Ayanamsa) = THE MOST IMPORTANT CONVERGENCE FOR MERLEAU-PONTY IS THAT BOTH THE LATER HUSSERL AND HEIDEGGER MAKE LANGUAGE INAUGURAL; IN EFFECT, BOTH DETERMINE LANGUAGE AS THE AB-GRUND (Husserl at the Limits of Phenomenology) = THIS TRANSFORMATION OF MAN INTO GOD IS CALLED APOTHEOSIS. WHETHER OR NOT YOU'RE AWARE OF IT, THIS THEME-TRANSFORMING MAN INTO GOD-IS THE CORE ELEMENT IN THIS ROTUNDA'S SYMBOLISM (The Lost Symbol) = WE HAVE ELSEWHERE102 ANALZYED THE STRUCTURES AND THE DIALECTIC OF HIEROPHANIES AND KRATOPHANIES - IN A WORD, OF THE MANIFESTATIONS OF THE MAGICO-RELIGIOUS REALITIES • 102 SEE ELIADE, PATTERNS, PASSIM ({32} Archaic Techniques of Ecstasy).

QWERTY 5749 = COMBINING MAURICE MERLEAU-PONTY'S COURSE NOTES ON HUSSERL'S ORIGIN OF GEOMETRY, HIS "COURSE SUMMARY", RELATED TEXTS, AND CRITICAL ESSAYS BY EACH OF THE CO-TRANSLATORS, THIS COLLECTION PROVIDES A UNIQUE AND WELCOME GLIMPSE BOTH INTO MERLEAU-PONTY'S NUANCED READING OF HUSSERL'S FAMED LATE WRITINGS AND INTO HIS PERSISTENT EFFORT TO TRACK THE VERY GENESIS OF TRUTH THROUGH THE INCARNATE IDEALIZATION OF LANGUAGE.IN HIS NOTES, MERLEAU-PONTY FOCUSES PRIMARILY ON HUSSERL'S WELL-KNOWN "ORIGIN OF GEOMETRY" TEXT FROM THE CRISIS AND ON ANOTHER OF HIS POSTHUMOUS TEXTS ON THE PHENOMENOLOGICAL ROLE OF THE EARTH AS EARTH-GROUND. BOTH OF THESE ESSAYS LEAD TO WHAT MERLEAU-PONTY CALLED IN A WORKING NOTE A "TRANSCENDENTAL HISTORY" — AN ANALYSIS OF A GEOGRAPHICAL INSCRIPTION OF HISTORY (Husserl at the limits of phenomenology: including texts by Edmund Husserl, by Maurice Merleau-Ponty) = INTERACTIONS WITH OTHER RESPONSIVE AGENTS LIE AT THE CORE OF ALL SOCIAL EXCHANGE. DURING A SOCIAL EXCHANGE WITH A PARTNER, ONE FUNDAMENTAL VARIABLE THAT MUST BE COMPUTED CORRECTLY IS WHO GETS CREDIT FOR A SHARED OUTCOME; THIS ASSIGNMENT IS CRUCIAL FOR DECIDING ON AN OPTIMAL LEVEL OF COOPERATION THAT AVOIDS SIMPLE EXPLOITATION. WE CARRIED OUT AN ITERATED, TWO-PERSON ECONOMIC EXCHANGE AND MADE SIMULTANEOUS HEMODYNAMIC MEASUREMENTS FROM EACH PLAYER'S BRAIN. THESE JOINT MEASUREMENTS REVEALED AGENT-SPECIFIC RESPONSES IN THE SOCIAL DOMAIN ("ME" AND "NOT ME") ARRANGED IN A SYSTEMATIC SPATIAL PATTERN ALONG THE CINGULATE CORTEX. THIS SYSTEMATIC RESPONSE PATTERN DID NOT DEPEND ON METRICAL ASPECTS OF THE EXCHANGE, AND IT DISAPPEARED COMPLETELY IN THE ABSENCE OF A RESPONDING PARTNER (Agent-Specific Responses in the Cingulate Cortex During Economic Exchanges).

QWERTY 5005 = LET X EQUAL THE QUANTITY OF ALL QUANTITIES OF X. LET X EQUAL THE COLD. IT IS COLD IN DECEMBER. THE MONTHS OF COLD EQUAL NOVEMBER THROUGH FEBRUARY. THERE ARE FOUR MONTHS OF COLD, AND FOUR OF HEAT, LEAVING FOUR MONTHS OF INDETERMINATE TEMPERATURE. IN FEBRUARY IT SNOWS. IN MARCH THE LAKE IS A LAKE OF ICE. IN SEPTEMBER THE STUDENTS COME BACK AND THE BOOKSTORES ARE FULL. LET X EQUAL THE MONTH OF FULL BOOKSTORES. THE NUMBER OF BOOKS APPROACHES INFINITY AS THE NUMBER OF MONTHS OF COLD APPROACHES FOUR. I WILL NEVER BE AS COLD NOW AS I WILL IN THE FUTURE. THE FUTURE OF COLD IS INFINITE. THE FUTURE OF HEAT IS THE FUTURE OF COLD. THE BOOKSTORES ARE INFINITE AND SO ARE NEVER FULL EXCEPT IN SEPTEMBER… = THE LAST TIME I WAS HERE AT THE EUROPEAN CENTRAL BANK (ECB), ALMOST EXACTLY TWO YEARS AGO, I SAT ON A DISTINGUISHED PANEL MUCH LIKE THIS ONE TO HELP MARK THE 10TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE EURO. EVEN AS WE CELEBRATED THE REMARKABLE ACHIEVEMENTS OF THE FOUNDERS OF THE COMMON CURRENCY, HOWEVER, THE GLOBAL ECONOMY STOOD NEAR THE PRECIPICE. FINANCIAL MARKETS WERE VOLATILE AND ILLIQUID, AND THE VIABILITY OF SOME OF THE WORLD'S LEADING FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS HAD BEEN CALLED INTO QUESTION. WITH ASSET PRICES FALLING AND THE FLOW OF CREDIT TO THE NONFINANCIAL SECTOR CONSTRICTED, MOST OF THE WORLD'S ECONOMIES HAD ENTERED WHAT WOULD PROVE TO BE A SHARP AND PROTRACTED ECONOMIC DOWNTURN.

QWERTY 1584 = BEN STEIN'S FAMOUS MONOTONIC LECTURE ABOUT THE HAWLEY-SMOOT TARIFF ACT WAS NOT ORIGINALLY IN HUGHES'S SCRIPT. STEIN, BY HAPPENSTANCE, WAS LECTURING OFF-CAMERA TO THE AMUSEMENT OF THE STUDENT CAST = CAUSE CHEVY DIDN'T MAKE A 327 IN '55, THE 327 DIDN'T COME OUT TILL '62. AND IT WASN'T OFFERED IN THE BEL AIR WITH A FOUR-BARREL CARB TILL '64. HOWEVER, IN 1964, THE CORRECT IGNITION TIMING WOULD BE FOUR DEGREES BEFORE TOP-DEAD-CENTER = CORRECT. THIS MODEL HAS KSC IFFY ON SUNDAY, AND ABSOLUTELY NO CHANCE ON MONDAY. EDWARDS IS VERY IFFY ON SUNDAY, BUT LOOKING OKAY ON MONDAY (OTHER THAN WINDS.) WSMR IS GOOD ON SUNDAY, AND BAD ON MONDAY = CRUSHED VELVET SEATS / RIDING IN THE BACK / OOZING DOWN THE STREET / WAVING TO THE GIRLS / FEELING OUT OF SIGHT / SPENDING ALL MY MONEY / ON A SATURDAY NIGHT / HONEY I JUST WONDER WHAT YOU DO THERE IN BACK / OF YOUR PINK CADILLAC = THE CONDITION FOR THE EMANCIPATION OF THE WORKING CLASS IS THE ABOLITION OF EVERY CLASS, JUST AS THE CONDITION FOR THE LIBERATION OF THE THIRD ESTATE, OF THE BOURGEOIS ORDER, WAS THE ABOLITION OF ALL ESTATES AND ALL ORDERS (The Poverty of Philosophy) = WE'RE CONFIDENT OVER THE NEXT FEW WEEKS, AND FEW YEARS FOR THAT MATTER, THAT NASA'S GOING TO PROVE TO OUR NATION, TO OUR PARTNERS AND OUR FRIENDS AROUND THE WORLD THAT IT WAS WORTH THE WAIT AND THE SACRIFICE = WITH IT COMES A POIGNANT NEED TO EARNESTLY DECIDE WHAT TO BE, WHETHER OR NOT TO ACCEPT THE OPTION FIRST PRESENTED WITH THE REVELATION OF A NEW QUALITY OF BEING DURING THE DECILE PHASE - AND TO ACT UPON THAT DECISION (PHASE 5 - The Waxing Octile).

QWERTY 1265 = CHAIRMAN BEN S. BERNANKE • AT THE SIXTH EUROPEAN CENTRAL BANK CENTRAL BANKING CONFERENCE, FRANKFURT, GERMANY • NOVEMBER 19, 2010 • REBALANCING THE GLOBAL RECOVERY = THUS WE HAVE THE FUNCTIONING OF A WELL-KNOWN FACTOR IN PRIMITIVE SPECULATIVE THOUGHT. THE TENDENCY TO FIND A MYTHICAL ORIGIN FOR EVERY IMPORTANT CEREMONIAL PRACTICE (Mythology of the Blackfoot Indians • Primitive Speculative Thought - from Du Bois, Cora Alice) = WHAT IS HE WHOSE GRIEF BEARS SUCH AN EMPHASIS? WHOSE PHRASE OF SORROW CONJURES THE WANDERING STARS, AND MAKES THEM STAND LIKE WONDER-WOUNDED HEARERS? THIS IS I, HAMLET THE DANE (Hamlet, Act 5, Scene 1).

QWERTY 1770 = WHAT IS SIGNIFICANT ABOUT HAMLET CALLING HIMSELF "HAMLET THE DANE" (5.1.242)? WHAT'S MOST IMPORTANT TO NOTE HERE IS THE CAPITAL "D" IN DANE. HAMLET IS NOT MERELY REFERRING TO HIMSELF AS A CITIZEN OF DENMARK, BUT AS THE CITIZEN OF DENMARK--I.E., THE RIGHTFUL KING = HOWEVER, UNMANNED AR&DS WILL ALSO BE A CURTAIL ASPECT FOR FUTURE ROBOTIC EXPLORATION OF THE SOLAR SYSTEM AS WELL AS POTENTIAL SATELLITE REPAIRS IN LOW EARTH ORBIT. AS SUCH, A NEW KIND OF AR&D PROGRAM WAS/IS NEEDED TO FILL THIS GROWING DEMAND (TriDAR).

QWERTY 112 = HAMLET THE DANE = G20 SEOUL SUMMIT 2010.

QWERTY 4393 = AMID THIS SHARED SENSE OF URGENCY, NATIONAL POLICY RESPONSES WERE FORCEFUL, TIMELY, AND MUTUALLY REINFORCING. THIS POLICY COLLABORATION WAS ESSENTIAL IN AVERTING A MUCH DEEPER GLOBAL ECONOMIC CONTRACTION AND PROVIDING A FOUNDATION FOR RENEWED STABILITY AND GROWTH. IN RECENT MONTHS, HOWEVER, THAT SENSE OF COMMON PURPOSE HAS WANED. TENSIONS AMONG NATIONS OVER ECONOMIC POLICIES HAVE EMERGED AND INTENSIFIED, POTENTIALLY THREATENING OUR ABILITY TO FIND GLOBAL SOLUTIONS TO GLOBAL PROBLEMS. ONE SOURCE OF THESE TENSIONS HAS BEEN THE BIFURCATED NATURE OF THE GLOBAL ECONOMIC RECOVERY (Rebalancing the Global Recovery) = SO FAR, THEREFORE, AS THE PUBLIC PROFESSION OF MAGIC HAS BEEN ONE OF THE ROADS BY WHICH MEN HAVE PASSED TO SUPREME POWER, IT HAS CONTRIBUTED TO EMANCIPATE MANKIND FROM THE THRALDOM OF TRADITION AND TO ELEVATE THEM INTO A LARGER, FREER LIFE, WITH A BROADER OUTLOOK ON THE WORLD. THIS IS NO SMALL SERVICE RENDERED TO HUMANITY. AND WHEN WE REMEMBER FURTHER THAT IN ANOTHER DIRECTION MAGIC HAS PAVED THE WAY FOR SCIENCE, WE ARE FORCED TO ADMIT THAT IF THE BLACK ART HAS DONE MUCH EVIL, IT HAS ALSO BEEN THE SOURCE OF MUCH GOOD; THAT IF IT IS THE CHILD OF ERROR, IT HAS YET BEEN THE MOTHER OF FREEDOM AND TRUTH.

QWERTY 7892 = THE EXCHANGE RATE ADJUSTMENT IS INCOMPLETE, IN PART, BECAUSE THE AUTHORITIES IN SOME EMERGING MARKET ECONOMIES HAVE INTERVENED IN FOREIGN EXCHANGE MARKETS TO PREVENT OR SLOW THE APPRECIATION OF THEIR CURRENCIES. THE DEGREE OF INTERVENTION IS ILLUSTRATED FOR SELECTED EMERGING MARKET ECONOMIES IN FIGURE 8. THE VERTICAL AXIS OF THIS GRAPH SHOWS THE PERCENT CHANGE IN THE REAL EFFECTIVE EXCHANGE RATE IN THE 12 MONTHS THROUGH SEPTEMBER. THE HORIZONTAL AXIS SHOWS THE ACCUMULATION OF FOREIGN EXCHANGE RESERVES AS A SHARE OF GDP OVER THE SAME PERIOD. THE RELATIONSHIP EVIDENT IN THE GRAPH SUGGESTS THAT THE ECONOMIES THAT HAVE MOST HEAVILY INTERVENED IN FOREIGN EXCHANGE MARKETS HAVE SUCCEEDED IN LIMITING THE APPRECIATION OF THEIR CURRENCIES. THE GRAPH ALSO ILLUSTRATES THAT SOME EMERGING MARKET ECONOMIES HAVE INTERVENED AT VERY HIGH LEVELS AND OTHERS RELATIVELY LITTLE. JUDGING FROM THE CHANGES IN THE REAL EFFECTIVE EXCHANGE RATE, THE EMERGING MARKET ECONOMIES THAT HAVE LARGELY LET MARKET FORCES DETERMINE THEIR EXCHANGE RATES HAVE SEEN THEIR COMPETITIVENESS REDUCED RELATIVE TO THOSE EMERGING MARKET ECONOMIES THAT HAVE INTERVENED MORE AGGRESSIVELY (Rebalancing the Global Recovery) = TO CONCLUDE: I DO NOT ASSERT THAT THE ANCIENTS WERE TROPICALISTS, NOR DO I ASSERT THAT THEY WERE SIDEREALISTS. I ASSERT THAT WHATEVER THEY MAY HAVE KNOWN ABOUT PRECESSION THEY TENDED NOT TO MAKE THE DISTINCTION, AND WHEN THEY DID, THEY WOULD HAVE BEEN JUST AS LIKELY TO GIVE PRECEDENCE TO THE TROPICAL AS THE SIDEREAL FOR DIVINATORY PURPOSES. AFTER ALL THE PICTORIAL CONSTELLATIONS WERE ONLY PHYSICAL PLANE IMAGES WHICH ROUGHLY CORRESPONDED TO THE IDEAL, MATHEMATICAL REALITY WHICH WOULD HAVE BEEN REPRESENTED BY THE TROPICAL SYSTEM. BUT FUNDAMENTALLY I BELIEVE WE HAVE TO REGARD THE TROPICAL-SIDEREAL CONTROVERSY AS YET ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF A HISTORICAL PSEUDO-PROBLEM CREATED BY ANACHRONISTICALLY PROJECTING A MODERN PROBLEM WITH MODERN POINTS OF VIEW BACK ONTO THE ANCIENTS. IT WAS NOT A PROBLEM WITH WHICH THE ANCIENTS WERE SERIOUSLY CONCERNED. GIVEN THE LIMITS OF THEIR COMPUTATIONAL ACCURACY, BOTH SYSTEMS WOULD HAVE GIVEN THEM THE SAME RESULTS. THIS IS A QUESTION THAT WE HAVE TO SOLVE FOR OURSELVES. AN APPEAL TO HISTORY WILL NOT WORK (On the Invariance of the Tropical Zodiac, by Robert Hand).

QWERTY 7853 = BECAUSE THE GENESIS OF THE FINANCIAL CRISIS WAS IN THE UNITED STATES AND OTHER ADVANCED ECONOMIES, THE MUCH WEAKER RECOVERY IN THOSE ECONOMIES COMPARED WITH THAT IN THE EMERGING MARKETS MAY NOT BE ENTIRELY UNEXPECTED (ALTHOUGH, GIVEN THEIR TRADITIONAL VULNERABILITY TO CRISES, THE RESILIENCE OF THE EMERGING MARKET ECONOMIES OVER THE PAST FEW YEARS IS BOTH NOTABLE AND ENCOURAGING). WHAT IS CLEAR IS THAT THE DIFFERENT CYCLICAL POSITIONS OF THE ADVANCED AND EMERGING MARKET ECONOMIES CALL FOR DIFFERENT POLICY SETTINGS. ALTHOUGH THE DETAILS OF THE OUTLOOK VARY AMONG JURISDICTIONS, MOST ADVANCED ECONOMIES STILL NEED ACCOMMODATIVE POLICIES TO CONTINUE TO LAY THE GROUNDWORK FOR A STRONG, DURABLE RECOVERY. INSUFFICIENTLY SUPPORTIVE POLICIES IN THE ADVANCED ECONOMIES COULD UNDERMINE THE RECOVERY NOT ONLY IN THOSE ECONOMIES, BUT FOR THE WORLD AS A WHOLE. IN CONTRAST, EMERGING MARKET ECONOMIES INCREASINGLY FACE THE CHALLENGE OF MAINTAINING ROBUST GROWTH WHILE AVOIDING OVERHEATING, WHICH MAY IN SOME CASES INVOLVE THE MEASURED WITHDRAWAL OF POLICY STIMULUS (Rebalancing the Global Recovery) = STS-131 LANDING GROUND TRACKS TO KENNEDY SPACE CENTER ON ORBIT 222 • HERE ARE THE MILESTONE GEOGRAPHIC POINTS THAT SPACE SHUTTLE DISCOVERY WILL FLY OVER FOR ITS FIRST LANDING OPPORTUNITY: 1. SOUTH OF THE QUEEN CHARLOTTE ISLANDS (WESTERN CANADA) 2. OVER BRITISH COLUMBIA, NORTHEAST OF VANCOUVER 3. OVER SOUTHERN ALBERTA PROVINCE 4. OVER MONTANA, FLYING OVER FORT PECK LAKE (MACH 22) 5. ACROSS THE WESTERN BORDER OF NORTH DAKOTA, THEN OVER NORTHERN SOUTH DAKOTA TRACKING NORTHWEST TO SOUTHEAST, DIRECTLY OVER THE CAPITAL OF PIERRE 6. ACROSS IOWA DIRECTLY OVER SIOUX CITY AND SOUTHWEST OF DES MOINES AND COUNCIL BLUFFS, IOWA (MACH 18) 7. OVER THE HEART OF MISSOURI, BETWEEN KANSAS CITY AND ST. LOUIS (MACH 16) 8. OVER THE EASTERN BORDER OF ARKANSAS AND TENNESSEE, EAST OF MEMPHIS (MACH 14) 9. OVER NE MISSISSIPPI, NORTHEAST OF TUPELO (MACH 12) 10. OVER ALABAMA TRACKING NORTHWEST TO SOUTHEAST FROM BIRMINGHAM TO COLUMBUS, GEORGIA (MACH 10) 11. OVER SOUTHWEST GEORGIA SOUTH OF AMERICUS 12. OVER FLORIDA, ALMOST DIRECTLY OVER JACKSONVILLE (MACH 4) 13. WEST OF ST. AUGUSTINE AND DAYTONA BEACH, ONTO KSC.

QWERTY 6070 = ALTHOUGH SECURITIES PURCHASES ARE A DIFFERENT TOOL FOR CONDUCTING MONETARY POLICY THAN THE MORE FAMILIAR APPROACH OF MANAGING THE OVERNIGHT INTEREST RATE, THE GOALS AND TRANSMISSION MECHANISMS ARE VERY SIMILAR. IN PARTICULAR, SECURITIES PURCHASES BY THE CENTRAL BANK AFFECT THE ECONOMY PRIMARILY BY LOWERING INTEREST RATES ON SECURITIES OF LONGER MATURITIES, JUST AS CONVENTIONAL MONETARY POLICY, BY AFFECTING THE EXPECTED PATH OF SHORT-TERM RATES, ALSO INFLUENCES LONGER-TERM RATES. LOWER LONGER-TERM RATES IN TURN LEAD TO MORE ACCOMMODATIVE FINANCIAL CONDITIONS, WHICH SUPPORT HOUSEHOLD AND BUSINESS SPENDING. AS I NOTED, THE EVIDENCE SUGGESTS THAT ASSET PURCHASES CAN BE AN EFFECTIVE TOOL; INDEED, FINANCIAL CONDITIONS EASED NOTABLY IN ANTICIPATION OF THE FEDERAL RESERVE'S POLICY ANNOUNCEMENT (Rebalancing the Global Recovery) = THIS ESSAY ADDRESSES THE PROBLEM BY REFERENCE TO THE TEXT ITSELF AND TO THE AMLETH LEGEND OF SAXO GRAMMATICUS (FL. 1188-1201) IN HISTORIA DANICA [4]. IT IS SUPPLEMENTED BY SCIENTIFIC AND HISTORICAL FACT. I HAVE PROPOSED AN ALLEGORICAL INTERPRETATION BASED ON PARALLELS THAT EXIST BETWEEN THE EVENTS OF THE PLAY AND THE DEVELOPMENT AND COMPETITION BETWEEN THE FOUR CHIEF WORLD MODELS EXTANT AT THE TURN OF THE SEVENTEENTH CENTURY [5]. I CONCLUDE THAT SHAKESPEARE WAS QUITE AWARE OF THE ASTRONOMICAL REVOLUTIONS OF HIS TIME, AND THAT IN COMING DOWN ON THE SIDE OF THE COPERNICAN REVOLUTION AND ITS DIGGESIAN COROLLARY, SHAKESPEARE DEFINES POETICALLY THE NEW UNIVERSAL ORDER. IF THE PRESENT INTERPRETATION HAS MERIT, HAMLET WOULD MANIFEST AN ASTRONOMICAL COSMOLOGY THAT IS NO LESS MAGNIFICENT THAN ITS LITERARY AND PHILOSOPHICAL COUNTERPARTS (Hamlet's Transformation).

QWERTY 5990 = THE FEDERAL RESERVE'S POLICY TARGET FOR THE FEDERAL FUNDS RATE HAS BEEN NEAR ZERO SINCE DECEMBER 2008, SO ANOTHER MEANS OF PROVIDING MONETARY ACCOMMODATION HAS BEEN NECESSARY SINCE THAT TIME. ACCORDINGLY, THE FOMC PURCHASED TREASURY AND AGENCY-BACKED SECURITIES ON A LARGE SCALE FROM DECEMBER 2008 THROUGH MARCH 2010, A POLICY THAT APPEARS TO HAVE BEEN QUITE SUCCESSFUL IN HELPING TO STABILIZE THE ECONOMY AND SUPPORT THE RECOVERY DURING THAT PERIOD. FOLLOWING UP ON THIS EARLIER SUCCESS, THE COMMITTEE ANNOUNCED THIS MONTH THAT IT WOULD PURCHASE ADDITIONAL TREASURY SECURITIES. IN TAKING THAT ACTION, THE COMMITTEE SEEKS TO SUPPORT THE ECONOMIC RECOVERY, PROMOTE A FASTER PACE OF JOB CREATION, AND REDUCE THE RISK OF A FURTHER DECLINE IN INFLATION THAT WOULD PROVE DAMAGING TO THE RECOVERY (Rebalancing the Global Recovery) = IF THE PROCESS OF UNFOLDMENT HAS DEVELOPED ALONG MOSTLY SUCCESSFUL LINES, THE ASPIRANT NOW BECOMES AWARE OF ACTING AS A CONSCIOUS AGENT FOR THE ACTUALIZATION OF A NEW IDEAL ON A SOCIAL SCALE. BUT A GROWING SENSE OF BEING OVERSHADOWED AND PROTECTED BY UNSEEN, EVER-PRESENT COSMIC FORCES MAY DEVELOP A PSYCHOLOGICAL DEPENDENCY UPON "FATEFUL" OR COSMIC SIGNS AND SYMBOLS SHOWING A COURSE TO PURSUE OR AN ACTION TO PERFORM. IF THE NEW QUALITY WASN'T SUCCESSFULLY REALIZED AT THE OPPOSITION, AND ITS IMPLICATIONS WEREN'T FACED DURING THE PREVIOUS PHASES, A SENSE OF BEING OVERWHELMED OR VICTIMIZED BY GREATER FORCES MAY BE FELT. OTHER THAN EMBRACING EMERGENT IDEALS INSPIRED BY THE NEW QUALITY, A FERVENT ESCAPE TO THE SAFE AND SECURE WAYS OF THE PAST MAY SEEM THE ONLY RELEASE FROM AN UNBEARABLE SITUATION (PHASE 27 - The Waning BiSeptile).

QWERTY 5786 = FIRST, AS I HAVE DESCRIBED, CURRENCY UNDERVALUATION INHIBITS NECESSARY MACROECONOMIC ADJUSTMENTS AND CREATES CHALLENGES FOR POLICYMAKERS IN BOTH ADVANCED AND EMERGING MARKET ECONOMIES. GLOBALLY, BOTH GROWTH AND TRADE ARE UNBALANCED, AS REFLECTED IN THE TWO-SPEED RECOVERY AND IN PERSISTENT CURRENT ACCOUNT SURPLUSES AND DEFICITS. NEITHER SITUATION IS SUSTAINABLE. BECAUSE A STRONG EXPANSION IN THE EMERGING MARKET ECONOMIES WILL ULTIMATELY DEPEND ON A RECOVERY IN THE MORE ADVANCED ECONOMIES, THIS PATTERN OF TWO-SPEED GROWTH MIGHT VERY WELL BE RESOLVED IN FAVOR OF SLOW GROWTH FOR EVERYONE IF THE RECOVERY IN THE ADVANCED ECONOMIES FALLS SHORT. LIKEWISE, LARGE AND PERSISTENT IMBALANCES IN CURRENT ACCOUNTS REPRESENT A GROWING FINANCIAL AND ECONOMIC RISK (Rebalancing the Global Recovery) = AS THE CYCLIC PROCESS WANES, ORGANIC DECLINE BECOMES INCREASING EVIDENT IN THE ACTIVITIES AND FUNCTIONS SYMBOLIZED BY THE PLANETARY PAIR. IF THE CYCLE HAS NOT BEEN ALLOWED TO UNFOLD AND ACTUALIZE ADEQUATELY, ALIENATION AND MANIPULATION MAY SURFACE AS CONTROLLING FORCES. IF THE DIRECTION OF THE PROCESS WAS MOSTLY PASTWARD DURING THE WAXING HEMICYCLE, BUT WAS SUCCESSFULLY TURNED-AROUND DURING THE WANING TRINE, A GROWING SENSE OF INDIVIDUALITY MAY PRECIPITATE A CRISIS OF REORIENTATION SIMILAR TO THAT SEEN IN THE WAXING SQUARE. IN SUCH INSTANCES, ONE MAY EXPERIENCE CRISES AND OPPORTUNITIES ALLOWING ONE TO REDEEM PAST SHORTCOMINGS THROUGH THE ACCEPTANCE OF A NEW DIRECTION AND OUTLOOK - OPENING THE WAY FOR ACTUALIZATION IN THE SUCCEEDING CYCLE (PHASE 28 - The Waning Square) = THIS PART OF BERKELEY'S WORK HAS SERVED AS A POINT OF CONTROVERSY BETWEEN THOSE WHO, LIKE T.W. HUTCHINSON, GLOMMED ONTO SUCH STATEMENTS AS EVIDENCE THAT BERKELEY HAD A PRE-KEYNESIAN SENSE THAT THE STATE SHOULD BE IN THE BUSINESS OF MANAGING AGGREGATE DEMAND, AND THOSE WHO, LIKE IAN WARD, EMPHASIZED BERKELEY'S CONCERN WITH THE CATEGORIES OF VOLUNTARY AND INVOLUNTARY EMPLOYMENT - WHICH LED BERKELEY, IN SOME OF HIS QUERIES, TO ENDORSE SLAVERY OR SERVITUDE FOR THE VOLUNTARY BEGGAR. HUTCHINSON, IN RESPONDING TO WARD, MAKES THE INVALUABLE POINT THAT THE VOLUNTARY VS. INVOLUNTARY EMPLOYMENT CATEGORIES MAKE NO SENSE IN THE EARLY MODERN ECONOMY, WHERE THE CONTINUITY OF EMPLOYMENT WAS NOT THE RECOGNIZED AND LEGALLY HEDGED AROUND SOCIAL PROCESS THAT IT IS IN THE TWENTIETH CENTURY (Berkeley's floating world).

→ QWERTY 4423 = 3. SEE BEN S. BERNANKE AND HAROLD JAMES (1991), "THE GOLD STANDARD, DEFLATION, AND FINANCIAL CRISIS IN THE GREAT DEPRESSION: AN INTERNATIONAL COMPARISON," IN R. GLENN HUBBARD, ED., FINANCIAL MARKETS AND FINANCIAL CRISES, A NATIONAL BUREAU OF ECONOMIC RESEARCH PROJECT REPORT (CHICAGO: UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO PRESS); BARRY EICHENGREEN (1992), GOLDEN FETTERS: THE GOLD STANDARD AND THE GREAT DEPRESSION, 1919-1939 (NEW YORK: OXFORD UNIVERSITY PRESS); AND DOUGLAS A. IRWIN (2010), "DID FRANCE CAUSE THE GREAT DEPRESSION? (293 KB PDF) LEAVING THE BOARD" MANUSCRIPT, DARTMOUTH COLLEGE AND NATIONAL BUREAU OF ECONOMIC RESEARCH, SEPTEMBER (Rebalancing the Global Recovery) = BY NOT HAVING MEDUSA'S HEAD PLACED ON THE GROUND (LIKE GOLIATH'S HEAD) BUT RATHER UP HIGH BY PERSEUS , CELLINI IS REFEREEING TO ANOTHER PART OF THE MYTH OF PERSEUS. WHEN PERSEUS WAS USING MEDUSA'S HEAD TO GAZE UPON ATLAS AND PHINEUS (SEPARATELY) TO TURN THEM INTO STONE. SO THAT MEDUSA'S HEAD IS TO BE INTERPRETED ON ANOTHER LAYER OF MEANING - A CURRENT ONE TO CELLINI'S TIME. FOR THE BRONZE STATUE WAS MEANT TO BE PLACED AMONG OTHER SCULPTURES IN THE LOGGIA DEI LANZI - MANY OF THEM OF STONE. SO THAT IT COULD BE SAID THAT CELLINI'S MEDUSA'S FREEZING GAZE MADE ALL THESE FIGURES TURN TO STONE (I.E. BECOME STONE AND MARBLE STATUES) (Cellini's Perseus and Medusa as Homoerotic artPersée tenant la tête de Méduse) = {poem by Aleister Crowely, mentions "money"}.

QWERTY 745 = THE GOLD STANDARD, DEFLATION, AND FINANCIAL CRISIS IN THE GREAT DEPRESSION: AN INTERNATIONAL COMPARISON = 43. DONALD W. OLSON, MARILYN S. OLSON, & RUSSELL L. DOESCHER 1998 "THE STARS OF HAMLET" SKY AND TELESCOPE VOL. 96, NO. 5, 67-73 = ALREADY/ALWAYS LISTENING: LISTENING TO OTHERS WITH PRECONCEIVED NOTIONS OF WHAT THEY REALLY MEAN = IN EARLY EMBRYOS, THE ENTODERMALLY LINED CHAMBER INTO WHICH THE HINDGUT AND ALLANTOIS EMPTY (cloaca) = IN GAME THEORY, A GAME IS SAID TO HAVE PERFECT INFORMATION IF ALL PLAYERS KNOW ALL MOVES THAT HAVE TAKEN PLACE = THE CONVERSION OF ST. PAUL · 1600 · OIL ON CYPRESS WOOD, 237 X 189 CM · ODESCALCHI BALBI COLLECTION, ROME = THE HEAVY'S TOTAL MASS AT LAUNCH IS APPROXIMATELY 733,000 KG, MUCH LESS THAN THAT OF THE SPACE SHUTTLE (2,040,000 KG) (Delta IV Heavy) = THE LITTLE CHAIN OF BUBBLES THAT APPEARS ON THE MENISCUS OF THE LIQUOR WHERE IT TOUCHES THE GLASS.

QWERTY 3495 = INCIDENTALLY, IN MY VIEW, THE USE OF THE TERM "QUANTITATIVE EASING" TO REFER TO THE FEDERAL RESERVE'S POLICIES IS INAPPROPRIATE. QUANTITATIVE EASING TYPICALLY REFERS TO POLICIES THAT SEEK TO HAVE EFFECTS BY CHANGING THE QUANTITY OF BANK RESERVES, A CHANNEL WHICH SEEMS RELATIVELY WEAK, AT LEAST IN THE U.S. CONTEXT. IN CONTRAST, SECURITIES PURCHASES WORK BY AFFECTING THE YIELDS ON THE ACQUIRED SECURITIES AND, VIA SUBSTITUTION EFFECTS IN INVESTORS' PORTFOLIOS, ON A WIDER RANGE OF ASSETS (Rebalancing the Global Recovery) = BECAUSE I HAVE MEANT THIS THEME, THIS THREAD, THIS SLO MO CONCEPTUAL TANTRUM, TO INDICATE SOMETHING THAT CAN'T BE TRUE - THAT USE FOLLOWS DELIRIUM - AND YET THAT ALSO SEEMS TO BE TRUE WHEN WE BASE OURSELVES IN THE WORLD OF THESE PSYCHOACTIVE PRODUCTS. THAT THE ARTIFICIAL PARADISE WASN'T JUST POURED OUT, SO MUCH CONCRETE AND ASPHALT, OVER THE BONES OF THE PEASANTS, BUT THE PEASANTS HAD AN AFTERLIFE, TO THE SURPRISE OF THE BUILDERS, ATOP THAT CONCRETE AND ASPHALT (A harlot high and low) = IT IS MY OPINION, AND I'M SURE MANY WILL DISAGREE, THAT THERE ARE TWO HIERARCHIES OF ANGELS EXISTING SIMULTANEOUSLY IN EACH SUBANGLE. THE FIRST HIERARCHY SIMPLY BEGINS WITH THE TWO GOD NAMES OF THE CALVARY CROSS, WHO ARE INVOKED BEFORE CALLING UPON THE FOUR SERVIENT ANGELS WHOSE NAMES APPEAR BENEATH THE ARM OF THE CROSS. IN THIS SCHEMA, ALL THE NAMES OF THE ANGELS IN THE HIERARCHY ARE DRAWN NEATLY AND EXCLUSIVELY FROM WITHIN THE SUBANGLE ITSELF. THE KERUB PLAYS NO[T] ROLE AT ALL ({153} Enochian Vision Magick).

THE KERUB PLAYS NO ROLE AT ALL ({153} Enochian Vision Magick) = BY FAR PREFERABLE FROM A RELIGIOUS PERSPECTIVE WOULD BE A CALENDAR WHICH KEEPS THE EQUINOX ON ONE DAY, REQUIRING A SHORTER CYCLE. EVEN SO FAR BACK AS AD 1079, OMAR KHAYYAM HAD SHOWN THAT AN EIGHT LEAP-YEARS IN 33-YEAR CYCLE PROVIDES AN EXCELLENT APPROXIMATION TO THE YEAR AS MEASURED AS THE TIME BETWEEN VERNAL EQUINOXES. THE ADVISERS OF GREGORY XIII KNEW THIS BUT INSTEAD RECOMMENDED THE INFERIOR 97/400 LEAP-YEAR SYSTEM WE USE, PERHAPS IN THE BELIEF THAT THE PROTESTANTS DID NOT KNOW OF THE BETTER 8/33 CONCEPT (What Is The Most Important Invention In The Past Two Thousand Years?) = NO CYCLE OF RELATIONSHIP CULMINATES AT THE OPPOSITION AS A COMPLETE SUCCESS OR FAILURE. SUCCESS AND FAILURE ARE MATTERS OF DEGREE, YET IT IS USUALLY MOSTLY ONE OR THE OTHER. FAILED ELEMENTS INVOLVING THE AREAS, ACTIVITIES, AND FUNCTIONS SYMBOLIZED BY THE PLANETARY PAIR NOW STRONGLY CONTRAST THOSE WHICH HAVE MODULATED TO A NEW LEVEL OF OPERATION. BUT TENSION PRODUCES POWER, WHICH MAY BE CHANNELED EITHER IN A PRODUCTIVE AND INTEGRATIVE DIRECTION OR IN A DESTRUCTIVE AND DISINTEGRATIVE DIRECTION (PHASE 19 - The Opposition) = {Apollo Space Missions}.

QWERTY 3769 = THE RESPONSES OF CENTRAL BANKS TO THE CRISIS FELL INTO TWO CLASSES. FIRST, CENTRAL BANKS UNDERTOOK A RANGE OF INITIATIVES TO RESTORE NORMAL FUNCTIONING TO FINANCIAL MARKETS AND TO STRENGTHEN THE BANKING SYSTEM. THEY EXPANDED EXISTING LENDING FACILITIES AND CREATED NEW FACILITIES TO PROVIDE LIQUIDITY TO THE FINANCIAL SECTOR… SECOND, BEYOND NECESSARY MEASURES TO STABILIZE FINANCIAL MARKETS AND BANKING SYSTEMS, CENTRAL BANKS MOVED PROACTIVELY TO EASE MONETARY POLICY TO HELP SUPPORT THEIR ECONOMIES (Emerging from the Crisis: Where Do We Stand?) = HEY BABY / WITH MY BODY AND SOUL I WANT YOU MORE THAN YOU'LL EVER KNOW / SO WE'LL JUST LET IT GO, DON'T BE AFRAID TO LOSE CONTROL / YES I KNOW WHAT'S ON YOUR MIND WHEN YOU SAY, "STAY WITH ME TONIGHT" / AND REMEMBER / YOU'RE THE ONE THING / I CAN'T GET ENOUGH OF / SO I'LL TELL YOU SOMETHING / THIS COULD BE LOVE BECAUSE / I'VE HAD THE TIME OF MY LIFE / NO I NEVER FELT LIKE THIS BEFORE / YES I SWEAR, IT'S THE TRUTH / AND I OWE IT ALL TO YOU / 'CAUSE I'VE HAD THE TIME OF MY LIFE / AND I'VE SEARCHED THROUGH EVERY OPEN DOOR / 'TIL I FOUND, THE TRUTH / AND I OWE IT ALL TO YOU.

QWERTY 3643 = AN ALETHIOMETER IS A DEVICE WHICH MEASURES THE TRUTH. THE WORD COMES FROM THE GREEK ALĒTHEIA; (ἀλήθεια) FOR "TRUTH" AND METER FOR "MEASURE", SO ALETHIOMETER LITERALLY MEANS "TRUTH MEASURER". A MISUNDERSTANDING OVER THE AUTHOR'S EARLY TITLE FOR THE TRILOGY ("THE GOLDEN COMPASSES"), AND THE RESEMBLANCE OF THE DEVICE TO A LARGE NAVIGATIONAL COMPASS CAUSED THE AMERICAN PUBLISHERS OF THE FIRST BOOK, ORIGINALLY ENTITLED NORTHERN LIGHTS, TO RETITLE THAT BOOK THE GOLDEN COMPASS. IT IS DESCRIBED IN NORTHERN LIGHTS THUS = AS THE PEN BEGAN ITS FIRST MOVEMENT, IT PRODUCED THE FIRST WORD AND SPEECH. WHEN THEY RAISED THE CURTAIN OF NON-EXISTENCE, THE FIRST MANIFESTATION OF EXISTENCE WAS WORD AND SPEECH. UNTIL THE WORD GAVE VOICE TO THE HEART, THE SOUL DID NOT SUBMIT ITS FREE BODY TO CLAY. AS THE PEN BEGAN TO MOVE, IT OPENED THE EYES OF THE WORLD WITH ITS WORDS. WITHOUT SPEECH THE WORLD HAS NO VOICE, THEY HAVE SAID SO MUCH BUT THE WORD HAS NOT DIMINISHED. IN THE LANGUAGE OF LOVE, SPEECH IS OUR SOUL, WE ARE SPEECH, THESE RUINS ARE OUR PALACES (The Poetry of Nizami Ganjavi) = LIVING ONE'S DESIRE MIGHT ENTAIL GREAT HARDSHIP, SUFFERING, AND STRUGGLE, IT MIGHT ENTAIL ALL SORTS OF GRIEF AND SACRIFICE, BUT LACAN'S POINT SEEMS TO BE THAT THE ALTERNATIVE IS WORSE. THAT WHICH IS REPRESSED ALWAYS RETURNS. CONSEQUENTLY, WITHIN A FREUDO-LACANIAN FRAMEWORK, A LIFE CHARACTERIZED BY ARETE OR EXCELLENCE, A LIFE CHARACTERIZED BY EUDAIMONIA - WHICH WE INADEQUATELY TRANSLATE AS "HAPPINESS" - WOULD BE A LIFE THAT, AS LACAN WILL PUT IT IN HIS LATER SEMINARS, "IDENTIFIES WITH ITS SYMPTOM".

→ QWERTY 3431 = 1. FIGURE 5 SHOWS CORE AND TRIMMED-MEAN MEASURES TO BETTER DISPLAY THE DECLINE IN UNDERLYING, OR TREND, INFLATION. TOTAL INFLATION MEASURES HAVE BEEN VOLATILE IN RECENT YEARS BUT ARE CURRENTLY A BIT ABOVE 1 PERCENT ON A 12-MONTH BASIS. PROJECTIONS BY FOMC PARTICIPANTS HAVE INDICATED THAT, UNDER APPROPRIATE MONETARY POLICIES, INFLATION AS MEASURED BY THE PRICE INDEX FOR PERSONAL CONSUMPTION EXPENDITURES SHOULD CONVERGE TO 2 PERCENT OR A BIT LESS IN THE LONG RUN (Rebalancing the Global Recovery) = AND YOU, 0 FAMOUS KING OF THE ROMANS, WILL NOT BE ASTONISHED AT MY NOW MENTIONING IN PASSING THAT THE SCIENCE OF THE ALPHABET CONTAINS GREAT MYSTERIES, SINCE HE, WHO IS THE ONLY AUTHOR OF ALL MYSTERIES, HAS COMPARED HIMSELF TO THE FIRST AND LAST LETTER (WHICH IS TO BE UNDERSTOOD NOT ONLY FOR THE GREEK LANGUAGE, BUT ALSO FOR THE HEBREW AND LATIN ONES, AS CAN IN VARIOUS WAYS BE PROVED BY THAT ART). HOW GREAT, THEN, MUST BE THE MYSTERIES OF THE INTER­MEDIATE LETTERS? ({180} 178–185 Michael T. Walton, "John Dee's Monas Hieroglyphica: Geometrical Cabala") = GRAMMARIANS WILL HAVE TO ADMIT TO THIS RARITY WHEN THEY SEE THAT THERE ARE SPECIFIC REASONS FOR THE SHAPES OF LETTERS, THEIR POSITIONS OR PLACES IN THE ORDER OF THE ALPHABET, HOW THEY ARE BOUND TOGETHER, THEIR NUMERICAL VALUE, AND MANY OTHER THINGS (THAT MUST BE CONSIDERED WITH REGARDS TO THE PRIMARY ALPHABETS OF THE THREE LANGUAGES). FURTHERMORE, IT IS A RARE GRAMMARIAN WHO CAN DEFEND THE IDEA THAT GRAMMAR IS ONE SCIENCE WHICH CAN BE LEARNED FROM ONE MAN (Sacred Symbol of Oneness) = {115, The Political Theology of Abbo of Fleury}.

QWERTY 3390 = SECOND, THE PAST TWO YEARS HAVE DEMONSTRATED THE VALUE OF POLICY FLEXIBILITY AND OPENNESS TO NEW APPROACHES. DURING THE CRISIS, CENTRAL BANKS WERE CREATIVE AND INNOVATIVE, DEVELOPING PROGRAMS THAT PLAYED A SIGNIFICANT ROLE IN EASING FINANCIAL STRESS AND SUPPORTING ECONOMIC ACTIVITY. AS THE GLOBAL FINANCIAL SYSTEM AND NATIONAL ECONOMIES BECOME INCREASINGLY COMPLEX AND INTERDEPENDENT, NOVEL POLICY CHALLENGES WILL CONTINUE TO REQUIRE INNOVATIVE POLICY RESPONSES (Emerging from the Crisis: Where Do We Stand?) = ALL PERSONS BORN OR NATURALIZED IN THE UNITED STATES, AND SUBJECT TO THE JURISDICTION THEREOF, ARE CITIZENS OF THE UNITED STATES AND OF THE STATE WHEREIN THEY RESIDE. NO STATE SHALL MAKE OR ENFORCE ANY LAW WHICH SHALL ABRIDGE THE PRIVILEGES OR IMMUNITIES OF CITIZENS OF THE UNITED STATES; NOR SHALL ANY STATE DEPRIVE ANY PERSON OF LIFE, LIBERTY, OR PROPERTY, WITHOUT DUE PROCESS OF LAW; NOR DENY TO ANY PERSON WITHIN ITS JURISDICTION THE EQUAL PROTECTION OF THE LAWS (Amendment 14 of the Constitution) = EXPERTS EVERYWHERE SOUGHT TO FIND A MODEL FOR THIS EVENT, AND WAYS TO SIMULATE IT IN ORDER TO AVOID A RECURRENCE IN THE FUTURE, BUT THE ONE THING THAT STRUCK ELIE THAT DAY WAS THE BELIEF THAT WHAT ACTUALLY HAPPENED ON 19TH OCTOBER 1987 IS SIMPLY NON REPRODUCIBLE OUTSIDE 19TH OCTOBER 1987 - YOU CANNOT REDUCE IT TO A CHAIN OF CAUSES AND EFFECTS, OR EVEN TO A RANDOM GENERATOR, THAT CAN THEN BE REPRODUCED OR REPRESENTED IN A THEORETICAL FRAMEWORK (The Blank Swan: The End of Probability).

QWERTY 3281 = IT WAS VERY LIKE A CLOCK, OR A COMPASS, FOR THERE WERE HANDS POINTING TO PLACES AROUND THE DIAL, BUT INSTEAD OF THE HOURS OR THE POINTS OF THE COMPASS THERE WERE SEVERAL LITTLE PICTURES, EACH OF THEM PAINTED WITH EXTRAORDINARY PRECISION, AS IF ON IVORY WITH THE FINEST AND SLENDEREST SABLE BRUSH. SHE TURNED THE DIAL AROUND TO LOOK AT THEM ALL. THERE WAS AN ANCHOR; AN HOURGLASS SURMOUNTED BY A SKULL; A CHAMELEON, A BULL, A BEEHIVE...THIRTY-SIX ALTOGETHER = AFRICAN AMERICAN ECONOMIST WILLIAM DARITY, JR. HAS PRODUCED A RIGOROUS AND REFRESHING DISCUSSION OF THE TRIANGULAR TRADE THESIS. IN A HIGHLY TECHNICAL ARTICLE, DARITY SEEKS TO TEST AND DEFEND WHAT HE CALLS "THE CARIBBEAN SCHOOL THESIS"-THE WORK OF C.L.R. JAMES, ERIC WILLIAMS, AND WALTER RODNEY-THAT THE SLAVE TRADE BOOSTED THE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT OF EUROPE WHILE SIMULTANEOUSLY DEEPENING THE UNDERDEVELOPMENT OF AFRICA AND THE CARIBBEAN ({253} A Different Vision: Race and Public Policy) = AN EXAMPLE OF THIS WAY OF THINKING IS AN EXCHANGE THAT TOOK PLACE WHEN SOMEONE TOLD GOETHE THAT HE ADMIRED HIM FOR HIS GENIUS, TOWERING OVER GERMAN INTELLECTUAL LIFE LIKE A GIGANTIC MOUNTAIN, TO WHICH GOETHE REPLIED THAT 'GREAT MOUNTAINS ARE FOUND ONLY IN MOUNTAINOUS LANDSCAPES.' THE TRADITIONAL HISTORY OF ART IS CONCERNED EXCLUSIVELY WHICH SUCH MOUNTAIN PEAKS, AND OFTEN, AS GOETHE CRITICALLY POINTED OUT, THEY ARE NOT EVEN SEEN IN RELATION TO EACH OTHER (Asger Jørn ~ Jorn's remarks on the publication of the book 'Thidrek of folk art', 1948, Denmark) = THE THIRTIETH SPIRIT IS FORNEUS. HE IS A MIGHTY AND GREAT MARQUIS, AND APPEARETH IN THE FORM OF A GREAT SEA-MONSTER. HE TEACHETH, AND MAKETH MEN WONDERFULLY KNOWING IN THE ART OF RHETORIC. HE CAUSETH MEN TO HAVE A GOOD NAME, AND TO HAVE THE KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING OF TONGUES. HE MAKETH ONE TO BE BELOVED OF HIS FOES AS WELL AS OF HIS FRIENDS. HE GOVERNETH 29 LEGIONS OF SPIRITS, PARTLY OF THE ORDER OF THRONES, AND PARTLY OF THAT OF ANGELS. HIS SEAL IS THIS, WHICH WEAR THOU, ETC.

QWERTY 2795 = THE TWO-SPEED NATURE OF THE GLOBAL RECOVERY IMPLIES THAT DIFFERENT POLICY STANCES ARE APPROPRIATE FOR DIFFERENT GROUPS OF COUNTRIES. AS I HAVE NOTED, ADVANCED ECONOMIES GENERALLY NEED ACCOMMODATIVE POLICIES TO SUSTAIN ECONOMIC GROWTH. IN THE EMERGING MARKET ECONOMIES, BY CONTRAST, STRONG GROWTH AND INCIPIENT CONCERNS ABOUT INFLATION HAVE LED TO SOMEWHAT TIGHTER POLICIES (Rebalancing the Global Recovery) = THIS IMPORTANT CHANGE IS NECESSITATED BY THE INHERENT, UNDERLYING GRAPHIC STRUCTURE OF THE BANNERS, WHICH WAS ONLY REVEALED WHEN I APPLIED THE BANNERS TO THE TETRAGRAM IN THE COURSE OF GENERATING THE BANNER SIGILS. SINCE I HAD NOT DEVELOPED THE SIGILS WHEN I WROTE "THE NEW MAGUS", I WAS UNABLE TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THIS NEW INFORMATION, WHICH IS COMPLETELY SET FORTH IN CHAPTER V (The Power of the Word).

QWERTY 2659 = THE CURRENT SYSTEM LEADS TO UNEVEN BURDENS OF ADJUSTMENT AMONG COUNTRIES, WITH THOSE COUNTRIES THAT ALLOW SUBSTANTIAL FLEXIBILITY IN THEIR EXCHANGE RATES BEARING THE GREATEST BURDEN (FOR EXAMPLE, IN HAVING TO MAKE POTENTIALLY LARGE AND RAPID ADJUSTMENTS IN THE SCALE OF EXPORT-ORIENTED INDUSTRIES) AND THOSE THAT RESIST APPRECIATION BEARING THE LEAST (Rebalancing the Global Recovery) = HUANG-DI IS ALSO SAID TO HAVE AUTHORED A BOOK CALLED "BAI ZE TU" WHICH DESCRIBES 11520 TYPES OF "SHAPESHIFTERS, MONSTERS, SPIRITS, BEINGS" IN THE UNIVERSE. THIS BOOK IS CONSIDERED LOST. A BOOK OF HIS THAT WAS NOT LOST IS TITLED "HANDBOOK ON SEX" AND IS PROBABLY THE OLDEST KNOWN BOOK ON SEX KNOWN TO US. SOME SOURCES ALSO CITE HUANG-DI AS HAVING INSTRUCTED LAO TZU…THE ORIGINATOR OF TAOISM (Aliens of Ancient China).

QWERTY 11524 = WE WERE STRANGERS STARTING OUT ON A JOURNEY. NEVER DREAMING WHAT WE'D HAVE TO GO THROUGH. NOW HERE WE ARE AND I'M SUDDENLY STANDING AT THE BEGINNING WITH YOU § NO ONE TOLD ME I WAS GOING TO FIND YOU. UNEXPECTED WHAT YOU DID TO MY HEART. WHEN I LOST HOPE YOU WERE THERE TO REMIND ME, THIS IS THE START § AND LIFE IS A ROAD AND I WANNA KEEP GOING. LOVE IS A RIVER I WANNA KEEP FLOWING. LIFE IS A ROAD NOW AND FOREVER, A WONDERFUL JOURNEY. I'LL BE THERE WHEN THE WORLD STOPS TURNING. I'LL BE THERE WHEN THE STORM IS THROUGH. IN THE END I WANT TO BE STANDING AT THE BEGINNING WITH YOU § WE WERE STRANGERS ON A CRAZY ADVENTURE. NEVER DREAMING HOW OUR DREAMS WOULD COME TRUE. NOW HERE WE STAND UNAFRAID OF THE FUTURE, AT THE BEGINNING WITH YOU § AND LIFE IS A ROAD AND I WANNA KEEP GOING. LOVE IS A RIVER I WANNA KEEP FLOWING. LIFE IS A ROAD NOW AND FOREVER, WONDERFUL JOURNEY. I'LL BE THERE WHEN THE WORLD STOPS TURNING. I'LL BE THERE WHEN THE STORM IS THROUGH. IN THE END I WANT TO BE STANDING AT THE BEGINNING WITH YOU § I KNEW THERE WAS SOMEBODY SOMEWHERE, LIKE ME ALONE IN THE DARK. NOW I KNOW MY DREAM WILL LIVE ON, I'VE BEEN WAITING SO LONG. NOTHING IS GOING TO TEAR US APART § AND LIFE IS A ROAD AND I WANNA KEEP GOING. LOVE IS A RIVER I WANNA KEEP FLOWING. LIFE IS A ROAD NOW AND FOREVER, A WONDERFUL JOURNEY. I'LL BE THERE WHEN THE WORLD STOPS TURNING. I'LL BE THERE WHEN THE STORM IS THROUGH. IN THE END I WANT TO BE STANDING AT THE BEGINNING WITH YOU § LIFE IS A ROAD AND I WANNA KEEP GOING. LOVE IS A RIVER I WANNA KEEP GOING ON. STARTING OUT ON A JOURNEY. LIFE IS A ROAD AND I WANNA KEEP GOING. LOVE IS A RIVER I WANNA KEEP FLOWING. IN THE END I WANNA BE STANDING AT THE BEGINNING… WITH YOU.

QWERTY 1336 = MAIS SUR LA TABLE OÙ SONT ARBITRAIREMENT DISPOSÉS LES ÉLÉMENTS CHIMIQUES DE L'HOMME, SE TROUVE DÉJÀ LA POSSIBILITÉ D'UN HOMME! IL SUFFIT DE LEVER LE BÂTON MAGIQUE… ET LE BÂTON MAGIQUE DE L'HOMME, C'EST SON SEXE (Asger Jørn :: But on the table, arbitrarily laid out, are the chemical elements of man — the possibility of a man! It's enough to raise the magic wand… and the magic wand of man is its sex) = THE CAR THAT MADE THESE TWO, EQUAL-LENGTH TIRE MARKS HAD POSITRACTION. YOU CAN'T MAKE THOSE MARKS WITHOUT POSITRACTION, WHICH WAS NOT AVAILABLE ON THE '64 BUICK SKYLARK! = AT THE BOTTOM OF THE CARD WE SEE THE LETTER SHIN ITSELF IN A FORM SUGGESTIVE OF A FLOWER; THE THREE YODS ARE OCCUPIED BY THREE HUMAN FIGURES ARISING TO PARTAKE IN THE ESSENCE OF THE NEW AEON (XX. The Aeon) = CAPTURE THE POETRY OF STRUGGLE, THE BEAUTY AND TRUTH OF WHAT PEOPLE HAVE TRIED TO DO FOR THEMSELVES, OFTEN UNDER THE MOST DIFFICULT CIRCUMSTANCES AND AT THE COST OF THEIR LIVES = WITH THE PRINCIPLE OF INTEGRATION AND THE POWER OF SUBJECTIVITY IN ASCENDANCY, SHARED VALUES, IDEALS AND EXPERIENCES ARE NOURISHED AND GIVEN AN OPPORTUNITY TO ATTAIN CREATIVE FULLNESS (PHASE 29 - The Waning BiNovile).

QWERTY 1335 = BAAL TSADDI · BAAL AITUN · BAAL GEH · BAAL IAL (BELIAL) · BAAL ZEBUB · BAAL BERITH · BAAL PEOR · BAAL PERAZIM · BAAL ZEPHON · BAAL SAMEN · BAAL ADONI-BEZEK · BAAL MOLOCH REDEC (MELCHISEDEC) (The Twelve Baals of the Zodiac) = EXODUS 14:21 AND MOSES STRETCHED OUT HIS HAND OVER THE SEA; AND THE LORD CAUSED THE SEA TO GO BACK BY A STRONG EAST WIND ALL THAT NIGHT, AND MADE THE SEA DRY LAND, AND THE WATERS WERE DIVIDED = IF YOU HEAR THE DOGS, KEEP GOING. IF YOU SEE THE TORCHES IN THE WOODS, KEEP GOING. IF THEY'RE SHOUTING AFTER YOU, KEEP GOING. DON'T EVER STOP. KEEP GOING. IF YOU WANT A TASTE OF FREEDOM, KEEP GOING —HARRIET TUBMAN = LEVITICUS 14:41 AND HE SHALL CAUSE THE HOUSE TO BE SCRAPED <07106> WITHIN ROUND ABOUT, AND THEY SHALL POUR OUT THE DUST THAT THEY SCRAPE OFF WITHOUT THE CITY INTO AN UNCLEAN PLACE = THE CRUDEST, MOST BARBAROUS THEORY THAT EVER EXISTED, A SYSTEM OF DESPAIR WHICH STRUCK DOWN ALL THOSE BEAUTIFUL PHRASES ABOUT LOVE THY NEIGHBOUR AND WORLD CITIZENSHIP (Engels Called Malthus's Hypothesis).

QWERTY 7301 = ALL FIVE OF THESE ELEMENTS INVOLVE COURAGE — A KIND OF EXISTENTIAL COURAGE WHERE YOU MUST STAND ON YOUR OWN, BRINGING FORTH YOURSELF AND THE FUTURE FROM NOTHING. STANDING ON YOUR OWN DOESN'T NECESSARILY MEAN STANDING ALONE OR WITHOUT SUPPORT. IT DOES MEN STANDING ON YOUR OWN WITH NOTHING FROM THE PAST OR THE PRESENT TO PROP YOU UP. TAKING A STAND TAKES WORK, COMMITMENT, AND DISCIPLINE. BUT ABOVE ALL, TAKING A STAND REQUIRES THE COURAGE TO COME FROM NOTHING INTO ALL OF THE FORCES RESISTING AN IMPOSSIBLE FUTURE. HAVING TAKEN A STAND DOES NOT GUARANTEE SUCCESS. DON'T FORGET, YOU HAVE ALREADY ACKNOWLEDGED THAT THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A "RIGHT" OR "WRONG" FUTURE. THE POSSIBILITY OF SURPRISE AND THE LACK OF CONTROL DO NOT LESSEN YOUR COMMITMENT. THEY MERELY MEAN THAT YOU ACCEPT, AS A GIFT, THE REALITY THAT THINGS WORK OUT THE WAY THEY DO. TAKING A STAND DETERMINES WHO YOU ARE BEING AND WHAT YOU ARE COMMITTING YOURSELF TO, WHILE LIFE IS WORKING OUT THE WAY IT DOES ({129} The Last Word on Power) = THE INVESTING OF MONEY AT A RISK OF LOSS ON THE CHANCE OF UNUSUAL GAIN; SPECIFICALLY BUYING AND SELLING, NOT IN THE ORDINARY COURSE OF COMMERCE FOR THE CONTINUOUS MARKETING OF COMMODITIES, BUT TO HOLD IN THE EXPECTATION OF SELLING AT A PROFIT UPON A CHANGE IN VALUES OR MARKET RATES. THUS, IF A MERCHANT LAYS IN FOR HIS REGULAR TRADE A MUCH LARGER STOCK THAN HE OTHERWISE WOULD BECAUSE HE ANTICIPATES A RISE IN PRICES, THIS IS NOT TERMED SPECULATION; BUT IF HE BUYS WHAT HE DOES NOT USUALLY DEAL IN, NOT FOR THE PURPOSE OF EXTENDING HIS BUSINESS, BUT FOR THE CHANCE OF A SALE OF THE PARTICULAR ARTICLES AT A PROFIT BY REASON OF ANTICIPATED RISE, IT IS SO TERMED. IN THE LANGUAGE OF THE EXCHANGES, SPECULATION INCLUDES ALL DEALING IN FUTURES AND OPTIONS, WHETHER PURCHASES OR SALES. THE ESTABLISHMENT OF ANY NEW MANUFACTURE, OF ANY NEW BRANCH OF COMMERCE, OR OF ANY NEW PRACTICE IN AGRICULTURE, IS ALWAYS A SPECULATION FROM WHICH THE PROJECTOR PROMISES HIMSELF EXTRAORDINARY PROFITS (Adam Smith, Wealth of Nations • The Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia {speculation}).

QWERTY 5555 = MANY BANKS, HOWEVER, WERE EVIDENTLY CONCERNED THAT IF THEY BORROWED FROM THE DISCOUNT WINDOW, AND THAT FACT SOMEHOW BECAME KNOWN TO MARKET PARTICIPANTS, THEY WOULD BE PERCEIVED AS WEAK AND, CONSEQUENTLY, MIGHT COME UNDER FURTHER PRESSURE FROM CREDITORS. TO ADDRESS THIS SO-CALLED STIGMA PROBLEM, THE FEDERAL RESERVE CREATED A NEW DISCOUNT WINDOW PROGRAM, THE TERM AUCTION FACILITY (TAF). UNDER THE TAF, THE FEDERAL RESERVE HAS REGULARLY AUCTIONED LARGE BLOCKS OF CREDIT TO DEPOSITORY INSTITUTIONS. FOR VARIOUS REASONS, INCLUDING THE COMPETITIVE FORMAT OF THE AUCTIONS, THE TAF HAS NOT SUFFERED THE STIGMA OF CONVENTIONAL DISCOUNT WINDOW LENDING AND HAS PROVED EFFECTIVE FOR INJECTING LIQUIDITY INTO THE FINANCIAL SYSTEM.2 (Federal Reserve's exit strategy) = THE YEAR-2000 PROBLEM CONFRONTS AND CHALLENGES MALE-ASSOCIATED LEADERSHIP CHARACTERISTICS SIGNIFICANTLY MORE SEVERELY THAN FEMALE-ASSOCIATED LEADERSHIP CHARACTERISTICS. THIS HAS RESULTED IN A VACUUM OF UPPER LEADERSHIP THAT IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE PRESENT FAILURE TO ADEQUATELY ADDRESS THE ISSUE. FURTHER, FEMALE-ASSOCIATED LEADERSHIP CHARACTERISTICS ARE CRITICAL FOR ADDRESSING THE UNPRECEDENTED, UNPREDICTABLE, DISTRIBUTED AND INTERRELATED NATURE OF THIS ISSUE. GENDER-ASSOCIATED DIFFERENCES IN LEADERSHIP CHARACTERISTICS ARE CORRELATED WITH DIFFERENCES IN THE ABILITY TO PRODUCE RESULTS IN LIFE. THIS RESULT GENERATING ABILITY, WHICH MAY BE CALLED A WINNING FORMULA, DEVELOPS BEFORE ADULTHOOD, IN RESPONSE TO ONE OR MORE CONFRONTING EVENTS (Culture, Gender, Leadership and the Year-2000 Problem) = TOURNONS-NOUS PLUTÔT VERS LES SPECTATEURS DE CE SHOW, LA FOULE ABASOURDIE QUI ENTEND COMME UN VACARME LOINTAIN L'HALLALI DES BANQUES AUX ABOIS, DEVINE LES WEEK-ENDS HARASSANTS DE LA GLORIEUSE PETITE TROUPE DES CHEFS DE GOUVERNEMENT, VOIT PASSER DES CHIFFRES AUSSI GIGANTESQUES QU'OBSCURS, ET Y COMPARE MACHINALEMENT LES RESSOURCES QUI SONT LES SIENNES, OU MÊME, POUR UNE PART TRÈS CONSIDÉRABLE DE L'HUMANITÉ, LA PURE ET SIMPLE NON-RESSOURCE QUI FAIT LE FOND AMER ET COURAGEUX À LA FOIS DE SA VIE. JE DIS QUE LÀ EST LE RÉEL, ET QUE NOUS N'Y AURONS ACCÈS QU'EN NOUS DÉTOURNANT DE L'ÉCRAN DU SPECTACLE POUR CONSIDÉRER LA MASSE INVISIBLE DE CEUX POUR QUI LE FILM CATASTROPHE, DÉNOUEMENT À L'EAU DE ROSE COMPRIS (SARKOZY EMBRASSE MERKEL, ET TOUT LE MONDE PLEURE DE JOIE), NE FUT JAMAIS QU'UN THÉÂTRE D'OMBRES (De quel réel cette crise est-elle le spectacle ?, par Alain Badiou).

QWERTY 5194 = IN THE REAL WORLD, OF COURSE, TASTE IS NOT EVERYTHING. SO MONTAGUE TRIED TO GAUGE THE APPEAL OF COKE'S IMAGE, ITS ''BRAND INFLUENCE,'' BY REPEATING THE EXPERIMENT WITH A SMALL VARIATION: THIS TIME, HE ANNOUNCED WHICH OF THE SAMPLE TASTES WERE COKE. THE OUTCOME WAS REMARKABLE: ALMOST ALL THE SUBJECTS SAID THEY PREFERRED COKE. WHAT'S MORE, THE BRAIN ACTIVITY OF THE SUBJECTS WAS NOW DIFFERENT. THERE WAS ALSO ACTIVITY IN THE MEDIAL PREFRONTAL CORTEX, AN AREA OF THE BRAIN THAT SCIENTISTS SAY GOVERNS HIGH-LEVEL COGNITIVE POWERS. APPARENTLY, THE SUBJECTS WERE MEDITATING IN A MORE SOPHISTICATED WAY ON THE TASTE OF COKE, ALLOWING MEMORIES AND OTHER IMPRESSIONS OF THE DRINK — IN A WORD, ITS BRAND — TO SHAPE THEIR PREFERENCE (There's a Sucker Born in Every Medial Prefrontal Cortex) = ¹THE IMPETUS FOR THE TRANSLATION OF THE LATIN HISTORIES PROBABLY CAME DURING THE REIGN OF SAINT LOUIS, BECAUSE THE TRANSLATION OF THE TEXT WAS COMPLETED IN THE 1270S AND THE LATIN RECUEIL , ONE SOURCE FOR IT, WAS COMPLETED IN THE FIRST HALF OF THE THIRTEENTH CENTURY. FURTHER, A REFERENCE IN THE PROLOGUE THAT THE TRANSLATOR UNDERTOOK THE WORK "AT THE COMMAND OF A MAN WHOM HE NEITHER COULD NOR SHOULD REFUSE" . . . (ENPRIST IL CESTE OUVRE À FERE PAR LE COMMANDEMENT DE TEL HOME QUE IL NE POUT NE NE DUT REFUSER) HAS LED SOME TO POSTULATE THE DIRECT PATRONAGE OF SAINT LOUIS. FOR THIS, SEE GABRIELLE SPIEGEL, THE CHRONICLE TRADITION OF SAINT-DENIS: A SURVEY (BROOKLINE, MASS., AND LEYDEN, 1978), 78-87. FOR FURTHER DISCUSSION OF THE TEXT, SEE TEXT PAGES 3-6 (The Royal Image :: From its origins in the late thirteenth century through the mid-fifteenth century, the Grandes Chroniques de France was an important royal history. It is a French translation of the Latin histories written and updated by the monks of Saint-Denis, who were, from the thirteenth century, official historiographers to the French kings¹).

QWERTY 4818 = ADAM MÜLLER, A MYSTIC AND REACTIONARY THINKER, A TYPICAL EXAMPLE OF ROMANTIC POLITICS, WHO, AS GOTTSCHALL HAS APTLY SAID, PURSUED IN POLITICS THE QUEST OF NOVALIS' BLUE FLOWER, DELIVERED IN 1806 A SERIES OF LECTURES ON GERMAN LITERATURE AND SCIENCE, IN WHICH HE SPEAKS OF NOVALIS WITH UNSTINTED PRAISE. HE CALLS HIM THE RESTORER OF PLATONIC IDEALISM IN LITERATURE AND SCIENCE. "IF EVER A MAN SEEMED CALLED TO THE OFFICE OF AN INTERMEDIARY BETWEEN GERMAN SCIENCE AND SCIENCE IN GENERAL; IN SHORT, IF EVER ONE SEEMED DESTINED TO BE A REINCARNATION, UNDER FUNDAMENTALLY DIFFERENT CONDITIONS, OF PLATO HIMSELF--THAT MAN WAS NOVALIS. HE WISHED TO CONQUER THE WORLD WITH THE SPIRIT OF POETRY" (Modern philology, Volume 9 • German Estimates of Novalis from 1800 to 1850, J.F. Haussmann, 399) = FRATER PERDURABO HAD MADE A VERY PROFOUND STUDY OF THE TAROT SINCE HIS INITIATION TO THE ORDER ON 18TH NOVEMBER, 1898; FOR, THREE MONTHS LATER, HE HAD ATTAINED THE GRADE OF PRACTICUS; AS SUCH, HE BECAME ENTITLED TO KNOW THE SECRET ATTRIBUTION. HE CONSTANTLY STUDIED THIS AND THE ACCOMPANYING EXPLANATORY MANUSCRIPTS. HE CHECKED UP ON ALL THESE ATTRIBUTES OF THE NUMBERS TO THE FORMS OF NATURE, AND FOUND NOTHING INCONGRUOUS. BUT WHEN (8TH APRIL, 1904 E.V.) HE WAS WRITING DOWN THE #BOOK OF THE LAW# FROM THE DICTATION OF THE MESSENGER OF THE SECRET CHIEFS, HE SEEMS TO HAVE PUT A MENTAL QUESTION, SUGGESTED BY THE WORDS IN CHAPTER I, VERSE 57 ({9} Book of Thoth) = OVER SEVERAL MONTHS THIS PAST SUMMER, MONTAGUE SET TO WORK LOOKING FOR A SCIENTIFICALLY CONVINCING ANSWER. HE ASSEMBLED A GROUP OF TEST SUBJECTS AND, WHILE MONITORING THEIR BRAIN ACTIVITY WITH AN M.R.I. MACHINE, RECREATED THE PEPSI CHALLENGE. HIS RESULTS CONFIRMED THOSE OF THE TV CAMPAIGN: PEPSI TENDED TO PRODUCE A STRONGER RESPONSE THAN COKE IN THE BRAIN'S VENTRAL PUTAMEN, A REGION THOUGHT TO PROCESS FEELINGS OF REWARD. (MONKEYS, FOR INSTANCE, EXHIBIT ACTIVITY IN THE VENTRAL PUTAMEN WHEN THEY RECEIVE FOOD FOR COMPLETING A TASK.) INDEED, IN PEOPLE WHO PREFERRED PEPSI, THE VENTRAL PUTAMEN WAS FIVE TIMES AS ACTIVE WHEN DRINKING PEPSI THAN THAT OF COKE FANS WHEN DRINKING COKE (There's a Sucker Born in Every Medial Prefrontal Cortex).

QWERTY 4455 = ENGLISH SIMPLY DOES NOT PROVIDE THE VOCABULARY TO ALLOW FOR AN EXACT TRANSLATION OF THE DIFFERENT GRADES OF LIGHT EXPRESSED IN HEBREW. HENCE WE END UP WITH THE SEFER HA-ZOHAR AND THE SEFER HA-BAHIR BEING RESPECTIVELY TRANSLATED "BOOK OF SPLENDOUR" AND "BOOK OF BRILLIANCE," KNOWING THAT THE TERM "SPLENDOUR" IS MORE ACCURATELY RENDERED HOD IN HEBREW. ATTEMPTING TO DEAL WITH THIS PROBLEM IN THE BEST POSSIBLE MANNER, I HAVE SELECTED TO FOLLOW THE MODEL OF ARYEH KAPLAN WHO, IN HIS "MEDITATION AND KABBALAH" AND TAKING HIS CUE FROM THE FOURTH PART OF SHA'AREI KEDUSHA, TRANSLATED THE DIFFERENT GRADES OF LIGHT AS FOLLOWS: = PHYTOCHROMES REPRESENT A FAMILY OF REGULATORY PHOTORECEPTORS IN PLANTS THAT CONTROL A WIDE VARIETY OF GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENTAL PROCESSES. THEY EXIST IN TWO PHOTOREVERSIBLE FORMS, A RED LIGHT-ABSORBING FORM (PR) WITH AN ABSORPTION MAXIMUM AT 666 NM AND A FAR-RED LIGHT-ABSORBING FORM (PFR) WITH AN ABSORPTION MAXIMUM AT 730 NM. BASED ON THE INTERCONVERSION BETWEEN THE PR AND PFR FORM THEY FUNCTION AS A LIGHT-REGULATED SWITCH WHICH IS ACTIVATED BY RED LIGHT AND ATTENUATED BY FAR-RED LIGHT = REBIRTH INTO THE OBJECTIVE WORLD BRINGS A GLIMMERING OF NEW POSSIBILITIES IN THE REALM OF SOCIAL INTERACTION AND PARTICIPATION. BUT SUCH GLIMMERINGS ARE STILL YOUTHFUL, ENTHUSIASTIC, AND UNDEFINED. INITIALLY,THE VASTNESS OF THE LARGER COMMUNITY MAY SEEM OVERWHELMING. IT MAY STILL BE UNCLEAR HOW THE "ME" SPHERE, AND PERSONAL CAPACITIES AND INSTRUMENTALITIES DEVELOPED DURING THE WAXING HEMICYCLE, BEST FIT INTO THE LARGER PICTURE GLIMPSED HERE. FOR NOW IT IS ENOUGH TO ABSORB AND ASSIMILATE THE RAMIFICATIONS OF THE OPENING OF THE "WE" SPHERE AS ONE CULTIVATES A SENSE OF COMMUNITY WITH OTHERS AND THE COSMOS (PHASE 20 - The Waning QuadNovile) = THE CYNICAL REDUCTION TO REALITY THUS FALLS SHORT: WHEN A JUDGE SPEAKS, THERE IS IN A WAY MORE TRUTH IN HIS WORDS (THE WORDS OF THE INSTITUTION OF LAW) THAN IN THE DIRECT REALITY OF THE PERSON OF JUDGE - IF ONE LIMITS ONESELF TO WHAT ONE SEES, ONE SIMPLY MISSES THE POINT. THIS PARADOX IS WHAT LACAN AIMS AT WITH HIS LES NON-DUPES ERRENT: THOSE WHO DO NOT LET THEMSELVES BE CAUGHT IN THE SYMBOLIC DECEPTION/FICTION AND CONTINUE TO BELIEVE THEIR EYES ARE THE ONES WHO ERR MOST. WHAT A CYNIC WHO "BELIEVES ONLY HIS EYES" MISSES IS THE EFFICIENCY OF THE SYMBOLIC FICTION, THE WAY THIS FICTION STRUCTURES OUR EXPERIENCE OF REALITY (With or Without Passion) = THE WORLD OF MIRRORS AND THE WORLD OF MEN WERE NOT, AS THEY ARE NOW, CUT OFF FROM EACH OTHER. THEY WERE BESIDES, QUITE DIFFERENT, NEITHER BEINGS NOR COLOURS NOR SHAPES WERE THE SAME [...] YOU COULD COME AND GO THROUGH MIRRORS. ONE NIGHT THE MIRROR PEOPLE INVADED THE EARTH. THEIR POWER WAS GREAT, BUT AT THE END OF BLOODY WARFARE THE MAGIC ARTS OF THE YELLOW EMPEROR PREVAILED. HE REPULSED THE INVADERS, IMPRISONED THEM IN MIRRORS AND FORCED ON THEM THE TASK OF REPEATING, AS THOUGH IN A KIND OF DREAM, ALL OF THE ACTIONS OF MEN [...] A DAY WILL COME WHEN THE MAGIC SPELL WILL BE SHAKEN OFF [...] LITTLE BY LITTLE THEY WILL NOT IMITATE US (The Fauna of Mirrors • Flatline Constructs).

QWERTY 4221 = AN ORGANIZATION OPERATING WITH A NEW MASTER PARADIGM, THE RE-INVENTION PARADIGM, BY CONTRAST, DEVELOPS AN ORGANIZATIONAL CONTEXT THAT OPERATES FROM PRACTICES DESIGNED TO "INVENT AND COMMIT," THE PRACTICES NECESSARY TO OPERATE IN A MODE OF TRANSFORMATION: DECLARING THE FUTURE RATHER THAN PREDICTING IT; TAKING A STAND RATHER THAN GENERATING A CONSENSUS; MAKING BOLD PROMISES THAT YOU DON'T KNOW HOW TO KEEP; CREATING CONTEXTS; FULFILLING NEW REALMS OF POSSIBILITY; AND RECRUITING AND DEVELOPING CATALYSTS FOR TRANSFORMATION RATHER THAN CHANGE AGENTS ({89} The Last Word on Power) = THAT THERE IS A PASSIVE REVOLUTION INVOLVED IN THE FACT THAT — THROUGH LEGISLATIVE INTERVENTION BY THE STATE AND BY MEANS OF THE CORPORATIVE ORGANIZATION — RELATIVELY FAR-REACHING MODIFICATIONS ARE BEING INTRODUCED INTO THE COUNTRY'S ECONOMIC STRUCTURE IN ORDER TO ACCENTUATE THE 'PLAN OF PRODUCTION' ELEMENT; IN OTHER WORDS, THAT SOCIALISATION AND CO-OPERATION IN THE SPHERE OF PRODUCTION ARE BEING INCREASED, WITHOUT HOWEVER TOUCHING (OR AT LEAST NOT GOING BEYOND THE REGULATION AND CONTROL OF) INDIVIDUAL AND GROUP APPROPRIATION OF PROFIT." -GRAMSCI, PRISON NOTEBOOKS (active and passive revolution) = THE POONA CONFERENCE OF 1925 ADOPTED THE AYANAMSA OF 22* 40' 35" CALCULATED BY PROF.

IN SOME ISSUES OF THE ASTROLOGICAL MAGAZINE, BANGALORE, IT WAS STATED THAT THE PRECESSIONAL DIFFERENCE IN KAKA BHUSANDAR NADI FOR 22ND MARCH, 1926 WAS GIVEN AS 22* DEGREES 44' MINUTES. ACCORDINGLY, THE YEAR 297 AD HAPPENS TO BE THE ONE APPROXIMATELY FOR THE COINCIDENCE OF THE TWO ZODIACS; ACCORDING TO THE NADI IT WAS 341 AD IF THE MOTION OF 50.12 SECONDS ONLY WAS USED INSTEAD OF THE PRESENT OBSERVED 50.26 SECONDS A YEAR (Lahiri Ayanamsa).
