A More Interesting And Unconventional Look At Light

The boring and done before "duality of light" routine raises more queaquest than it answers. Quantum theory is watertight mathematically but what if it's probabilistic take on reality is nothing more than an accurate model. Is light a photon? Is it an elsctromagnetic wave? Of what kind?

Finally I have found a short video that deals with these questions in a way that appears to be in touch with reality and retains the spirit of invention and curiosity that has left certain sectors of the physics community.

The Best Cryptocurrencies

Time to get real. If your blockchain:
* Has a CEO
* Contains pre-mined tokens
* Distributed tokens via an ICO
* Can execute a forced hardfork
* Doesn't use a consensus algorithm
* Can be changed in a short time.

...then it's most likely centralized.

It is more of the coins than you think. Take for example Ethereum:
* Executed a forced hardfork
* Has a central point, Vitalik
* 20℅ of the coins were pre-mined

It follows logically that Ethereum is centralized.

Here are the "gold standard" decentralized blockchains:
* BITCOIN
* LITECOIN
* MONERO


I'm a hardcore ideologist more than an investor, but the upside of having a blockchain that leaves central banks utterly incapable of taking control of your blockchain is that they are probably the most fundamentally economically viable too. That being said I still think Ethereum, Dash, Ripple and Cardano plus a handful of others are great coins, but for different and interesting reasons.

They can be mined just about anywhere and generally, traded globally. Still, not every location is as friendly to the burgeoning asset class as others.

The Genie Is Out Of The Bottle.

There is one company, headquartered in Newark, New Jersey, that has some sort of connection to every CIA operation, regime change, war, terrorist organization and government involved with the Middle East. It's board can boast about careers covering issues as wide ranging as opium trade Black Ops funding to celebrity gossip. It is the embodiment of everything that is wrong with foreign policy, media and banksterism in the world today. In fact if you follow this link to their site you see that I mean that LITERALLY because sitting on their board are Dick Cheney, Rupert Murdoch and Lord Jacob Rothschild.

Whats The Deal With Russia And Turkey?

There is a lot of speculation on this topic in the media, on social media and in the MSM, but everyone interprets the current situation differently (it is not as clear as most geopolitical situations based on reading the lay of the land because much is going on behind the scenes). With a little historical perspective many things come into focus. This article from Eurasian Future, by Adam Garrie frames the situation in a way that, for me, is the most plausible.


Putin Isn’t Bringing Back the USSR and Erdogan Isn’t Bringing Back the Ottoman Empire – Both Are Embracing Genuine Multipolarity with Historically Apt Characteristics "When hypernationalists in Russia or Turkey claim that the two countries are destined for conflict, such voices are merely playing into the hands of those in Europe and the United States who seek to divide and rule Eurasia by exploiting conflicts between the Russia, Turkey and also Iran."
Here is the article:

The Simple Truth of Vladimir Putin’s Diabolical Plan

In the early 2000s, Vladimir Putin was running a country almost destroyed by corruption, foreign interventions, and pirates bent on privatizing anything of value for western investors. The advance of the globalist doctrine had reached the borders of the country; wars were brewed in former Soviet republics where regime changes and color revolutions were not working. The notorious Russian mob, the Israeli mob, anybody inside the country that could be bought by western pirates was taking a bite from the Russian legacy. Putin stepped in and sorted it out. Putin did not sell Russia out. This was a capital crime.
Later in the decade, Vladimir Putin proposed an initiative known as the “Vladivostok to Lisbon” protocol. The plan was for one gigantic Eurasian market worth tens of trillions of dollars. The plan was for a full and fair integration of Russia within the global context. Only the plan made Russia an integral partner rather than a network of small banana republics like Yugoslavia beca…
