The 99% Inverted!

Most of the Occupy Wall Street protesters are just reactionary, filled with hatred rhetoric about 1 billion in poverty without a real solution on how to change this their blind rage at the "1%" they distort their perception of wealth. They don't see that they're selfishly rebelling against an American system that essentially is geared toward a very realistic, enlightened way of dealing with it's people and the world. It's ironic this smartmob doesn't understand that in the US the quality of life and amount of wealth held by the "99%" is so high as to seemingly eclipse the wealth of the rest of the globe.  ...Marc Wolsky

MoMA | The Collection | Barry Le Va. Diagram for Two Separate Installlations Combined into One Installation in 2 Perspectives. 1982

I've been friends with the famous Barry Le Va for many months now and I can tell you he has as dynamic a repertoire of visual art as his personality! He told me he has sold many works of art at the Museum of Modern Art for exorbitant prices, so I told him I'd like to go to MoMA to view his art...he said the museum circulates art too much to see it. So I wikipediaed him and found a link to some of his MoMA of his pieces was a devastatingly expressive masterpiece(the link at the top of this page will take you directly to this piece) , so I decided to feature him here on my site.
That's my ultra state report for now.

High-Frequency Trading, The Future & Occupy Wall Street!

High-Frequency Stock Trading Catches Regulators’ Eyes -
I guess high-frequency trading and the like is exactly what the Occupy Wall Street is protesting. But I think the real issue goes much deeper. I still maintain we need to have a real insight into how humanity is moving into the future. I think the real answer is in technological and epistemological breakthroughs that will leave us on lucid and safer high ground. Somehow the protesters' ambiguous aims show they are just as clueless as most of us. More to the point is my perception that we are at a crossroads where the pressure of eons of our species searching for answers is bearing down on us all.  Perhaps the real importance of Orwell's 1984 novel is to give us a sense of the gravity of this futuristic pressure, forcing us to enlist a rational and empirical overview, countering existential fallacies. The problem with existentialism is that it is escapist, and encourages us to relieve our anxieties by compromising our integrity by giving up on trying to find a life of reason meaningful. Reality has a rational cosmic order as it's cornerstone, and if we don't know this we wrongly assess things in psychosis. 
Rationalism and empiricism are really important tools to understand things clearly, and are stepping stones to transcend the drudgery of the modern day with a positivist outlook. Sure the people on Wall Street are guilty to some degree of unethical and illegal activities, but in the larger picture they are really more like masters of the universe, moving as a masses/vanguard in a rational mainstream!

Real Hope For A Tomorrow Today?

Monkey Brain Control: The Future of Robotic Prostheses?
It's always good to hear encouraging words telling us that the future is real. Particularly in concrete, empirical terms. The article in the above link explains a futuristic breakthrough which implies not only that we may soon be able to develop cyborg capability in humans, but the more important idea that we may soon live in a day and age which is as technologically advanced as cutting edge science fiction.
The world is often adrift with a plague of negativism even by the most careful adherents to doctrinaire ideas. If we capture the spirit of our time and incorporate our yearning for a sci-fi world with our down to earth spiritual side, we may transcend a rough era of man where we are challenged to come up with an infinite world...a world where we would conceptualize and materialize in a dimension so fantastically futuristic, even Jean Paul Sartre would learn to smile.

Wall Street Science Fiction!

A Warning as Wall Street Moves Into Emerging Markets -
When I first read the title of this article I was thinking I could find evidence the US was going to invest in emerging markets like the Chinese and the US could have the national growth like China's. Also we could utilize present US securities market volatility to our advantage as the Chinese do, offsetting problems in such things as traditional Dow Theory. But of course in our country, the US, perhaps the perception of president Obama as a socialist may factor in well with your discussion of sovereign wealth funds, because our treatment of such things in a more progressive light may allow 'fortress DC' to keep up with the likes of fortress euro's cultural wealth and China's money. If you don't change you'll be begging for change. Unfortunately, only tomorrow will show us a more futuristic overview of life, relieving us of the miasma of fatalistic the times we live in and NYTimes articles in general are very uplifting, but we need to bring perspective on where we as a race are going and who we really are. Otherwise, we are just existentialist escapists without futurist vision. I found this article particularly uplifting because it points toward tangible evidence of futuristic change.

China - Officers Suspended in Sex Slave Case -

China - Officers Suspended in Sex Slave Case -
The plight of enslaved girls forced into performing sex on the internet is highlighted in this brief article. The next time you delve into the pornographic side of cyberspace, if you are a respectable citizen or human being, you should take this into consideration.
I am an open-minded free spirit, but ultimately a positivist. I have many theories on how criminals generally justify yin yang behavior, but I know there's a line crossed in the case of sex slaves where there is no chi at all. Very bad. You see, one of my theories runs along the lines whereby life can be a debilitating activity, but somehow we all have to tough it out and find a tomorrow that's futuristic in varying degrees, as per the individual. Therefore we must never lose sight of the ethical high ground. The chi point is that there is a vast range of negative behavior, but ultimately the light must outshine the dark...redemption in finding true order in the cosmos and your own cosmic fate.
     The problem with sexual slavery, I believe, is that it lowers humans into some sort of penultimate hellish dimension. To human traffickers I say, wake up and smell the humanism.

Evidence of Faster-Than-Light Neutrinos Puzzles Scientists -

Evidence of Faster-Than-Light Neutrinos Puzzles Scientists - 
Someday, maybe very soon, particles or spaceships traveling faster than light speed will be the norm. The problem with Einstein physics is that it has its origins in 1905, when there were very few if any profound thinkers. I am convinced the accuracy of modern science is some half way measure whose success is more the result of fitting parts of the puzzle of reality together only as a result of the human mind being hardwired to be extremely advanced.  It is only an approximation of real penultimate hi-tech, though oddly enough one can find solace in the fact that today's technology is partly futuristic  Again, this only works to a certain extent because reality is infinitely complicated, leaving present scientists with a low order use of our resources. Perhaps a good analogy is the idea that the human mind is only using a small percentage of it's capability, though I don't doubt the ability of the average person to be part of the rational mainstream.
Further, if you read the New York Times article in the link on the top of this page, you might get excited by the fact that the empirical experiment observing faster than light travel may be concrete proof, as opposed to purely mental speculation, that the world really has more to it then commonly thought. Personally, whether it's rationalism or empiricism, I get something out of it. It's just that I've long maintained the world is infinite in nature, more like science fiction turned fact as opposed to the big bang or creationism.
When I say reality is infinite in nature, I don't mean in the sense of Hiesenburg's Uncertainty Principle. I mean I can only conceptualize in terms of a personal cosmology outlined in a piece I wrote in this blog, big brother's ultra state, called "Don't Worry About Those UFOs Around the Corner!" But I do like empirical experiments that propel low level hi-tech because it's still hi-tech which is reaching for the infinite future, a place and dimension we may see in our lifetimes.
