1: Something is missing in this forum...

2: What is it?

3: The ultimate integration of everything...perhaps.

4: That would presuppose a structure that intelligibly frames all the discussions and comments to-date. A summing structure.

5: Why not give it a try? Who knows before the journey may end whether there is actually a final destination?

6: Don't wish for what you may not want. You may get a kite flying in a hurricane.

7: Do. The deed. The deed.

8: (beats chest, cries For The Motherland, The Motherland, eyes skim mistily to faraway land...)

9: What is the structural framework?

10: Like our Chairman, we are not interested in just a view here, a point there.  We want to paint the entire landscape. Yes?

11: Ten millennia of human thought reduced to a picosecond of incandescent wisdom captured in a bucket of light to the
beat of moving spirits....

12: Data at the base of the pyramid. Information layered on top of it. Knowledge on top of information. Wisdom at the apex on top of knowledge.

13: And cloud below the base.

14: Nimbus, stratocumulus?

15: Matters not to civilizational states.

16: Why?

17: Mortality. I said to the wintry wind that fateful morning. Atop a hill somewhere in the outskirts of Taiyuan. Frosty air, forlorn trees and autumnal grey presage the impending arrival of another winter. I said i will be gone soon enough. But you, old temple from a thousand years back, you which have seen the affairs of man in the march of time, yes you will still be around, must still be around when i like so many before and after me am gone.

18: Why grasp for deep essence when there is none?

19: Hope springs eternal in foolish minds.

20: Try. The deed. The deed.

Global economy enters ‘synchronised slowdown’Financial Times: 11.44 am Asia/part




The global economy has entered a “synchronised slowdown” which may be difficult to reverse in 2019, according to the latest update of a tracking index compiled by the Brookings Institution think-tank and the Financial Times.


Sentiment indicators and economic data across advanced and emerging economies have been deteriorating since last autumn, suggesting fading momentum in global growth and the need to resort to new forms of economic stimulus.


The worsening outlook has sparked warnings from Christine Lagarde, managing director of the IMF, who said the fund would cut its growth forecasts later this week, and the World Trade Organization which has said the continued threats of trade skirmishes had weakened forecasts.


The findings follow generally disappointing economic indicators over the past six months that have shown a similar picture in the US, Europe and Asia.Professor Eswar Prasad of the Brookings Institution said the slowdown did not yet appear to be heading for a global recession, but all parts of the world economy were losing momentum.


“The nature of the slowdown has ominous portents for these economies over the next few years, especially given present constraints on macroeconomic policies that could stimulate growth,” he said.


The Brookings-FT Tracking Index for the Global Economic Recovery (Tiger) compares indicators of real activity, financial markets and investor confidence with their historical averages for the global economy and for individual countries.The headline readings slipped back significantly at the end of last year and are at their lowest levels for both advanced and emerging economies since 2016, the year of the weakest global economic performance since the financial crisis.


The index fell partly because hard data indicating real economic activity has been weaker, with countries such as Italy falling into recession and Germany narrowly avoiding one and with the US economy losing steam as the effects of Donald Trump’s tax cuts wear off.

An eerie silence has descended on this spot. From where it came, to where it will lead?

People coined the term technological singularity for AI. Why not then a geopolitical singularity to succinctly describe today's global trade and technology torsional tensions?

Will the world ever be the same again or has winter-has-come even after it has gone be the new but unreal game-of-thrones?

Sure, there will be beliefs and behaviors that are not the common weal. But those are just the natural reactions once limitations take wing leaving behind the feeling of what-one-can-imagine-one-can-achieve.

Sure, there are pitfalls in the process but how many of them are an outcome from seeing things inside the old box of western ways which might have worked before; however, the world is changing again.

The synthesis is at the back of the head. Years ago, it was already done. No matter how events may wax and wane in the coming months, whatever the markets may signal as blinks from their ram chips, however diverging thoughts may fly and ricochet across the fabrics of societies...in this eerie silence, stay confident, build resilience, cheer up and carry on. Those who deem to do bad onto you will like ghosts flee in the face of resolute determination for personal self-excellence.

How can ghosts write rules that they will also be seen to follow?
