News Dreams, Vitamins and Stock Markets

We begin today with a case of woo-woo.  Hell of a lot more interesting than just talking money and long wave economics all the time…

As I’ve told you (uncountable times), I have oneironautic dreams.  I “go places.”  Some people would call this astral projection of out of body experience, but I don’t label it.

Nevertheless, there I was (1:15 AM Central today) and I wake up from a dream. I’d been in a strange/new place and I was on a hill.  Down the hill a ways was a house.  Might have been houses.  Suddenly, I’m inside the house and I can feel rocks and dirt smashing into the uphill side.  I wake up with one word screaming in my head:  “Landslide!”

Knowing a bit about how this works, I “please make a note of it” and continue on with some other adventures.  But the first search this morning was for news of a “landslide.”  And NSS, here it is:

2 dead, 4 missing in south China landslide.”  Other reports, put the death toll higher: “6 killed in south China landslide.

Several notes about this:  The first is that I have no idea why I would “connect” with the “landslide” in a dream.  We didn’t even have the radio on Sunday, and we only watched part of a streaming series last night, so no chance of hearing something.”  Yet, there it was at 1:15 AM…

The second observation is that my oneironautic adventures are seemingly “tempered” by alcohol.  I’ve noticed that if I only have one glass of wine (6 oz.) then the dreams rock and sock’em all night.  But, with three glasses (and a higher TAL (tissue alcohol level) I can sleep pretty well (or, at least dreamlessly for 8 hours).  Which gets us to the whole matter of wondering how much substance abuse in the world is linked to social doing a horrible job of empowering people to not only see/remember their astral (or whatever) travels into the Realms, but also in teaching people how moderation of “substances” can help to “dial things” so that a good amount (but not overwhelming – of the drive you to drink on the waking side) of useful content.

Our Seattle truck driver reader (Andy) no doubt will follow this perfectly, as will other readers who understand the “framework” here.  Not sure how many “normal” and still tied to ground people will track, but since it’s Monday, thought you might find some of the “conceptual stuff” around here interesting.

=== Key point:  Give yourself permission to remember your dreams on waking and then journal them.  You’re a lot more powerful than you ever imagined.Takes time to develop but OMG what an adventure.  There’s more than just the “here and now…” ===

Vitamins and the Stock Market

The stock market is set to open down 60 on the Dow, at least it was when I looked at things earlier. But, with the “sell in May” we’ve seen the market decline from our Aggregate Index high this spring of 25,125.98 on April 29th down to last Friday’s close at 23,258.33 – 92.546 percent of it’s high water market in April or a loss of about 7.4 percent, rounding a bit.

This week begins slowly with PMI Manufacturing at 9:45 which might move things after the open.  But the real news will come later this week with the employment series:  ADP Wednesday, Challenger job cuts Thursday and then the Labor Department number Friday.

Pardon us if we snooze and tidy up the lawn and garden a bit during this.

“What about Vitamins???”

Ah…another one of those “under the light crown ideas…”

So with the “Selling in May” possibly at an end (this week?) there is often (in historical data) and increase in markets until the end of August, or so. And we seem to get pretty regular declines in the fall.

Stuck me like a ton of bricks this morning:  Instead of studying market theory, should we be studying photo-medicine?    Specifically Seasonal Affects Disorder, or SAD.  Wiki-up here:

“Seasonal affective disorder (SAD) is a mood disorder subset in which people who have normal mental health throughout most of the year exhibit depressive symptoms at the same time each year, most commonly in winter. Common symptoms include sleeping too much, having little to no energy, and overeating. The condition in the summer can include heightened anxiety….”

This is not the first time the idea has rolled by.  In years past, we have looked at whether there was any correlation between the amount of sunshine in high net worth cities (as an aggregate) that might influence optimism and pessimism.

What’s new in my thinking is that we’re in the period now that people are going outside a lot more.  Doesn’t every office or business of any consequence have an after-work softball game, now?  And wouldn’t that increase Vitamin D (conversion) uptake?  And isn’t vitamin D called the “sunshine vitamin” because it helps to fight depression?  And isn’t that why SAD is treated with special lights like Amazon selling $45 “Verilux HappyLight Lucent 10,000 Lux LED Bright White Light Therapy Lamp?”

As my work with the light crown (and soon light helmet) have shown, there are huge changes (slowly and nicely) in behavior to be had from how we “light load.”  Which is what the ancient Egyptians may have live so long, being Sun (Ra) worshipers.  Did light on the back of the throat somehow give them benefit?  Ah, we’ll probably never know…yet it’s a tantalizing line of inquiry.

More “Light-Hearted?”    Sure:  With the report that Donald Trump has a “new look” prior to his next big visit to the Queen’s place” we expect the mainstream media will get yet-another story wrong.  We are predicting a noticeable change in Trump’s behavior after the Queen meet.  The press will hype that the Queen-Mum has “school” The Don in the finery of government and such.  But, those of us who know that there are 6,668 clinical trials involving photo-therapies on the government’s clinical trials website will know the truth may simply be an increase in the amount of light to Trump’s upper forehead.

The Mayo Clinic (which is just near the Ketchup & Mustard Clinic, lol) says “Light therapy can start to improve symptoms within just a few days. In some cases, though, it can take two or more weeks.”  We will therefore expect to see a change in the presidential tweet tone in 2-4 weeks.  Remember where you heard it first. Tell your doctor…

Headlines to Grind Through

Monday butt-load of blah-blah-blah…

Google Shares Slump 3% After Tech Giant’s Weekend From Hell.  Baddah Bing?  See also Fortune which is offering a somewhat Daily Racing Form take in their “Handicapping the Coming Antitrust Battles Over Google and Amazon: Data Sheet.”

Collusion on social, perhaps?  As Russia Requires Tinder to Share User Data – Reports. Where’s the collusion hysteria now, brothers and sisters?

Also on the IT front: More companies are using Instagram for business: Determining factors.

No, he wasn’t kidding as Trump announces new tariffs on Mexico.  Related: Global recession fears grow as factory activity shrinks.

Got your resume handy?  Chief White House Economist Kevin Hassett Resigns.

Into the grind we go…moron the ‘morrow…

    just be calm.. get a cup of good joe a good book and listen to this song…
    cheers…. you can also smack a green machine lawn mower with a sledge.. that takes care of the physical tension just fine.. sell tickets… maybe you could get enough to buy an orange machine…

  2. Landslide..this missive smacks of markets and whats coming to a stock near U soonly.

    Gold – George is breaking out!

    The affect of “intoxicants” on ability to remember dreams & and assoc. activities R exactly why I practice a “Pompatus of Love” lifestyle after hours..”I’m a joker, I’m a smoker (cigar), Im a midnight toker..

    G – got some splainin to do here regards Gold, precious metals and the Breakout..to the Upside! Name of the game now is …High Cost Producers – those producers whose cost to mine 1 oz of gold is more that $900/oz. As price of gold goes higher in breakout phase – high cost producers who were just making a profit at $1100-1200/oz, will see Exponential profit increases as price of gold rises. Central Banks have been Gold buyers this year, sovereign govt’s. buyers, Commercials went long last week according the latest COT reports.

    Don’t look now – Congo – record deaths reported..in foreign news. Read UN report on sustainability issues in Africa – note on how the lowland gorilla is being wiped out by ebola, as are other simians. This virus is highly contagious – airborne – did U notice the one state in country that had statewide Ebola emergency drill last week. Notice private jet that flew from that one state in union housing live virus in lab, jet flew straight to gulf coast of Fla, sharp left over alligator alley – (2) F15 strike fighter launched from Homestead to intercept – plane flew over 150 miles out to sea – and dove in deep water.hmmm

  3. Your vision does cause one to meditate upon the current whereabouts of Monk Master Zhang Gong.

    • “rainbowized” ..what a waste.. the monks body is in Nederlanden. Its “hot” and the villagers from whom it was stolen want it back, so they are in dutch court trying to recover Stolen – Fenced -Property. Cant imagine there is any Mal Mojo attached to that mummy..

  4. Vit D is also important in immune function. I used to get fall and spring upper respiratory infections, year after year, living in Portland OR (no sun, huh).

    These totally stopped once I started taking Vit D (5000 IU). Have your D level tested. If it’s low, you may be getting infections from it.

    • I also used to get regular colds in the winter until I upped my vitamin D to the 4000 to 5000 IU level daily during the winter. If I do get sick, it’s mostly a minor inconvenience, and for a much shorter duration.

  5. I’ve never seen it in the literature, but I’m affected seriously by wet weather and high humidity. It’s different from SAD – it’s weather, not seasons, and it causes a downward mood swing and actual altered state when the weather gets moist. Sometimes it’s insightful, though often not. It’s far more noticeable here at a mile+ above sea level. Most of the time the humidity is low, and when it gets rainy I just want to sleep for hours – even during the day. When the humidity is below 10%, I’m very energized. I wonder if anyone else has experienced this?

  6. Have been using laser red to heal body. Had a friend with back injuries and 40 treatments is able now to run miles again Wouldn’t that be nice

    • Yes, I saw this in a dream over 20 years ago that the color red can heal spinal injuries. I have posted about it twice in the last ten years.

  7. A Dimension Traveler at a Psychic Fair pointed out to me the benefits of being a Oneironautic or Lucid Dreamer if you live the traditional ho hum life with no excitement & endless drugery. I think she was trying to sell me a book or DVD & thought I was a prime mark. She showed a lot of cleavage to help make her point. I ended up buying a Chakra Chime to help win the lottery.

    BENEFITS: You can do ANYTHING in your lucid dreams, and it all feels vivid, real, and powerful. You can live out your wildest fantasies and experience things that would be impossible in waking life.You could become James Bond, Elvis Presley, or Madonna.

  8. While there may be some residual from the fermentation involved, I’m not sure it’s the alcohol that fuels the dreams. Substitute a Heineken 0.0 non-alcoholic malt drink for the glass of wine and see where you go with it. The local Baptists brew merchants want to card me every time I buy it, gray hair and all. :)

  9. Her Majesty’s gift of a WW2 tome first edition by Sir Winston Churchill to the visiting American head of state was most thoughtful.

  10. George, have you ever written anything up on the overlap between the forward-looking dreams you describe, and the dream thesis described in the book An Experiment With Time, by British soldier/aeronautical engineer J.W. Dunne?

    Link to archive dot org copy of the book for those unfamiliar: https://archive.org/details/AnExperimentWithTime

    • Thanks for sharing.
      I actually haven’t read that one.. or is on this weeks reading list..

    “Seasonal affective disorder (SAD) is a mood disorder subset”.

    This a totally wacky idea but the earths spin axis is tilted a bit away from the sun during winter then the magnetic field of the sun is somewhat less intense in the northern hemisphere. Some people may be more affected by this decrease in magnetic energy.

    Just a hypothesis. I wonder if there’s any research on this?

    And this topic:

    ” Which is what the ancient Egyptians may have live so long, being Sun (Ra) worshipers”.

    Since you mentioned Egypt you might find this very well done article on the Great Pyramid to be of interest.

    https://www.newdawnmagazine.com/articles/a-new-theory-for-the-great-pyramid-how-science-is-changing-our-view-of-the-past

    It’s very technical with no woo-woo.

    Enjoy

    • That’s quite interesting.. in an old book I read it was brought up that the pyramids were concave and had eight sd ideas rather than 4..
      The Concave Faces of the Great Pyramid
      The Egyptian Pyramids:
      By.J.P. Lepre

      We see them today.. I try to imagine them the way they looked then the slick clay cover the gold cap.. i use to think they could possibly be a large capacitor of some sort used for electricity..
      There was another group of papers years ago about some strange subterranean structures in Russia that had strange effects on electronic equipment..
      Those are places I’d love to go on my bucket list.. seeing them would give me a lot more to visualize than some old studies..
      But then what would i know or think i know..it would be fun brainstorming with those studying them..
