Surviving International Investing Shifts Part II


Surviving International Investing Shifts Part II – Frequency in the Range of Light.

See how to get a free digital workshop on frequency modulation below.

Frequency modulation for quantum thinking is vital because one of the biggest shifts we can gain from is the following:   Turbulence has replaced calm as the norm in our daily lives.  Rapid change now is our bellwether in the here and now.

Perhaps the change was always there and we just did not know.  More likely technology does speed up the process of change.  Maybe technology just informs us faster of the change now so everything seems faster.

Success in this new reality requires that we think and act beyond logic by fine tuning… by enhancing all of our senses and integrating them with intuition so we can survive, prosper and be comfortable and fulfilled in the volatility that has now become our daily state.

See part one this report here.

Part of the integration begins at our quantum state of reality.

russian-doll-lamp

I am reminded of change and reality by this lamp designed by Russian designer Dima Loginoff.  The seeds of every outer shell are dictated by another seed within… always smaller and always bigger. As above… so below.

This never ending relativity is part of quantum reality.  Since we used a lamp as our symbol to help us see definition in something that is infinite, let’s view first the quantum aspects of light and how knowing about it can help us survive and prosper in these shifts.

David Deutsche an Israeli-British physicist at the University of Oxford laid the foundations of the quantum theory of computation and made it comprehensible to the general public, notably in his book “The Fabric of Reality” which helps us understand our quantum reality though the frequencies in the range we call light. (All bolds in the excerpts are mine).

Here are excerpts from “The Fabric of Reality”:  In his popular Royal Institution lectures on science, Michael Faraday used to urge his audiences to learn about the world by considering what happens when a candle burns. I am going to consider an electric torch (or flashlight) instead. This is quite fitting, for much of the technology of an electric torch is based on Faraday’s discoveries.

Deutsche describes an experiment that shows how light is at the core of quantum physics.

His books says: Imagine an electric torch switched on in an otherwise dark room. Figure 2.1 illustrates the situation. But it is somewhat misleading: if we were observing the torch from the side we should be able to see neither it nor, of course, its light. Invisibility is one of the more straightforward properties of light. We see light only if it enters our eyes (though we usually speak of seeing the object in our line of sight that last affected that light).

FIGURE 2.1 Light from an electric torch (flashlight).

quantum-experiment

Figure 2.1 does show that the light is brightest near the torch, and gets dimmer farther away as the beam spreads out to illuminate an ever larger area. To an observer within the beam, backing steadily away from the torch, the reflector would appear ever smaller and then, when it could only be seen as a single point, ever fainter. Or would it? Can light really be spread more and more thinly without limit? The answer is no. At a distance of approximately ten thousand kilometres from the torch, its light would be too faint for the human eye to detect and the observer would see nothing. That is, a human observer would see nothing; but what about an animal with more sensitive vision? Frogs’ eyes are several times more sensitive than human eyes — just enough to make a significant difference in this experiment. If the observer were a frog, and it kept moving ever farther away from the torch, the moment at which it entirely lost sight of the torch would never come. Instead, the frog would see the torch begin to flicker. The flickers would come at irregular intervals that would become longer as the frog moved farther away. But the brightness of the individual flickers would not diminish. At a distance of one hundred million kilometres from the torch, the frog would see on average only one flicker of light per day, but that flicker would be as bright as any that it observed at any other distance.

Frogs cannot tell us what they see. So in real experiments we use photomultipliers (light detectors which are even more sensitive than frogs’ eyes), and we thin out the light by passing it through dark filters, rather than by observing it from a hundred million kilometres away. This flickering indicates that there is a limit to how thinly light can be evenly spread. Borrowing the terminology of goldsmiths, one might say  that light is not infinitely ‘malleable’. Like gold, a small amount of light can be evenly spread over a very large area, but eventually if one tries to spread it out further it  {34}  gets lumpy. Even if gold atoms could somehow be prevented from clumping together, there is a point beyond which they cannot be subdivided without ceasing to be gold. So the only way in which one can make a one-atom-thick gold sheet even thinner is to space the atoms farther apart, with empty space between them. When they are sufficiently far apart it becomes misleading to think of them as forming a continuous sheet. For example, if each gold atom were on average several centimetres from its nearest neighbour, one might pass one’s hand through the ‘sheet’ without touching any gold at all. Similarly, there is an ultimate lump or ‘atom’ of light, a photon. Each flicker seen by the frog is caused by a photon striking the retina of its eye. What happens when a beam of light gets fainter is not that the photons themselves get fainter, but that they get farther apart, with empty space between them (Figure 2.2).

quantum-experiment

This property of appearing only in lumps of discrete sizes is called quantization. An individual lump, such as a photon, is called a quantum (plural quanta). Quantum theory gets its name from this property, which it attributes to all measurable physical quantities — not just to things like the amount of light, or the mass of gold, which

Suppose that the light of a torch passes through two successive small holes in otherwise opaque screens, as shown in Figure 2.4, and that the emerging light falls on a third screen beyond. Our question now is this: if the experiment is repeated with ever smaller holes and with ever

FIGURE 2.4 Making a narrow beam by passing light through two successive holes.

quantum-experiment

Can the illuminated region between the second and third screens  be confined to an arbitrarily narrow cone? In goldsmiths’ terminology, we are now asking something like ‘how “ductile” is light’ — how fine a thread can it be drawn into? Gold can be drawn into threads one ten-thousandth of a millimetre thick.

It turns out that light is not as ductile as gold! Long before the holes get as small as a ten-thousandth of a millimetre, in fact even with holes as large as a millimetre or so in diameter, the light begins noticeably to rebel. Instead of passing through the holes in straight lines, it refuses to be confined and spreads out after each hole. And as it spreads, it ‘frays’. The smaller the hole is, the more the light spreads out from its straight-line path. Intricate patterns of light and shadow appear.

The book then goes onto show that a pattern like this would appear.

quantum idea

Then Deutsche continues:  If light travelled in straight lines, the pattern in Figure 2.6 would consist simply of a pair of bright bands one-fifth of a millimetre apart (too close to distinguish on this scale), with sharp edges and with the rest of the screen in shadow. But in reality the light bends in such a way as to make many bright bands and dark bands, and no sharp edges at all.

Now, what sort of shadow is cast if we cut a second, identical pair of slits in the barrier, interleaved with the existing pair, so that we have four slits at intervals of one-tenth of a millimetre? We might expect the pattern to look almost exactly like Figure 2.6.

quantum-experiment

After all, the first pair of slits, by itself, casts the shadows in Figure 2.6, and as I have just said, the second pair, by itself, would cast the same pattern, shifted about a tenth of a  millimetre to the side — in almost the same place. We even know that light beams normally pass through each other unaffected. So the two pairs of slits together should give essentially the same pattern again, though twice as bright and slightly more blurred.

In reality, though, what happens is nothing like that. The real shadow of a barrier with four straight, parallel slits is shown in Figure 2.7(a). For comparison I have repeated, below it, the illustration of the two-slit pattern (Figure 2.7(b)). Clearly, the four-slit shadow is not a combination of two slightly displaced two-slit shadows, but has a new and more complicated pattern. In this pattern there are places, such as the point marked X, which are dark on the four-slit pattern, but bright on the two-slit pattern. These places were bright when there were two slits in the barrier, but went dark when we cut a second pair of slits for the light to pass through. Opening those slits has interfered with the light that was previously arriving at X.

quatum-light

So, adding two more light sources darkens the point X; removing them illuminates it again. How? One might imagine two photons heading towards X and bouncing off each other like billiard balls. Either photon alone would have hit X, but the two together interfere with each other so that they both end up elsewhere. I shall show in a moment that this explanation cannot be true. Nevertheless, the basic idea of it is inescapable: something must be coming through that second pair of slits to prevent the light from the first pair from

So, whatever causes interference behaves like light.

What should we expect to happen when these experiments are performed with only one photon at a time?

But what we surely could not observe is any place on the screen, such as X, that receives photons when two slits are open, but which goes dark when two more are opened.

Yet that is exactly what we do observe. However sparse the photons are, the shadow pattern remains the same. Even when the experiment is done with one photon at a time, none of them is ever observed to arrive at X when all four slits are open. Yet we need only close two slits for the flickering at X to resume.

So, if the photons do not split into fragments, and are not being deflected by other photons, what does deflect them? When a single photon at a time is passing through the apparatus, what can be coming through the other slits to interfere with it?

Since different interference patterns appear when we cut slits at other places in the screen, provided that they are within the beam, shadow photons must be arriving all over the illuminated part of the screen whenever a tangible photon arrives. Therefore there are many more shadow photons than tangible ones. How many? Experiments cannot put an upper bound on the number, but they do set a rough lower bound. In a laboratory the largest area that we could conveniently illuminate with a laser might be about a square metre, and the smallest manageable size for the holes might be about a thousandth of a millimetre. So there are about 1012 (one trillion) possible hole-locations on the screen. Therefore there must be at least a trillion shadow photons accompanying each tangible one.

Thus we have inferred the existence of a seething, prodigiously complicated, hidden world of shadow photons.

Interference is not a special property of photons alone. Quantum theory predicts, and experiment confirms, that it occurs for every sort of particle. So there must be hosts of shadow neutrons accompanying every tangible neutron, hosts of shadow electrons.

It follows that reality is a much bigger thing than it seems, and most of it is invisible. The objects and events that we and our instruments can directly observe are the merest tip of the iceberg.

For similar reasons, we might think of calling the shadow particles, collectively, a parallel universe, for they too are affected by tangible particles only through interference phenomena. But we can do better than that. For it turns out that shadow particles are partitioned among themselves in exactly the same way as the universe of tangible particles is partitioned from them. In other words, they do not form a single, homogeneous parallel universe vastly larger than the tangible one, but rather a huge number of parallel universes, each similar in composition to the tangible one, and each obeying the same laws of physics, but differing in that the particles are in different positions in each universe.

A remark about terminology. The word ‘universe’ has traditionally been used to mean ‘the whole of physical reality’. In that sense there can be at most one universe. We could stick to that definition, and say that the entity we have been accustomed to calling ‘the universe’ — namely, all the directly perceptible matter and energy around us, and the surrounding space — is not the whole universe after all, but only a small portion of it. Then we should have to invent a new name for that small, tangible portion. A new word, multiverse, has been coined to denote physical reality as a whole.

Thus we have reached the conclusion of the chain of reasoning that begins with strangely shaped shadows and ends with parallel universes.

The quantum theory of parallel universes is not the problem, it is the solution. It is not some troublesome, optional interpretation emerging from arcane theoretical considerations. It is the explanation — the only one that is tenable — of a remarkable and counter-intuitive reality.

Many of those Davids are at this moment writing these very words. Some are putting it better.  Others have gone for a cup of tea.

Desutsche goes on to explain how every aspect of our universe is impacted by trillions of shadow universes and that our universe is a shadow universe to trillions of universes.

Imagine… we are… every fiber of our being… and all we see and sense is composed of… and connected to… and in touch with… everything in our universe… and trillions more!

Here is my theory on how we can use this knowledge to fine tune our thinking and integrate it with our intuition:

Our beta works in four wave forms… beta, alpha, theta and delta.

The beta waves tap into the local news.  This is the part of our being that takes care of the here and now…the space around us.  These brain waves dominate our logical thinking.

Our alpha waves connect us to the regional news…a much deeper and broader area of intelligence too vast for our prefrontal logical brain to compute on its own. When we tap into alpha we get intuitive creative flashes we could never just think up logically.

Theta connect brain waves connect with the global news…an even deeper vaster level of intelligence and finally we reach delta.

Delta waves are our connection to the universal news right down to our quantum state and perhaps trillions of shadow universes. These are the brain waves that allow us to dream and do multi things in varied places combining the past and future all at the same time!

This is an intelligence so vast that we cannot even imagine it.  This is yota-yota yotabytes of data… compared to our brains that process at 64K.   We must be in a dream state where the physical boundaries strip away. bIn delta we can be in two places at once, know all things and even fly… yet stil be in the ground at the same time… full potentiality.

When we allow these waves to interconnect freely with our logic and have a way to gear the data down into usable form, we gain unimaginable intellect.  Many would say we are in a super state or when processing information in this way we could describe ourselves as being “in the zone”.

In such a state, our mental and physical beings improve.  Inner improvements… greater flexibility… more intelligence… broader perspective… these are keys for surviving and gaining from shifts in international investing and business.

Gary

We have added frequency modulation workshops in all our courses that teach how to use silence, music and play to get into the zone.  These workshops help delegates enhance productivity and creativity.

The concepts gained show delegates how to create their own program of greater wisdom and help them build new skills at work in study and play. One benefit is that delegates gain tools to quickly become better at any subject.

For example one delegate at a Spanish course found that what she learned also helped her study better. She worote:

“Hi Gary & Merri, You two are the BEST!!! Your Seminar was fantastic! I am so excited. I had procrastinated fulfilling my continuing education for my Broker’s License and then just before my surgeries, I realized my expiration date isn’t Nov. 12th – it is Sept 12th. Well, as you can see prior to taking your course I had only completed 3 units of the required 45 units. I thought I would take your course and then complete my remaining 42 units over the next 2 weeks. However, I took one class exam on Saturday night, August 27th. I didn’t even take the cellophane off the required Course manuals until after I saw the two of you today less than 5 hours ago! I used your techniques and completed 39 units of continuing education today. I have now completed all 45 units. All of my test scores were in the 90.6-96% range. My course exam information is listed below. I just wanted to let you know how valuable your course was to me. Thanks again!”

Our courses always have interesting people.  Our last course had doctors, dentists, business people, personal trainers, teachers, an award winning journalist who was the New York Times art director and even a Pilates teacher who had trained with Joe Pilates the founder of the Pilates technique.

To make it easier to learn about frequency modulation, we have recorded our “Frequency Modulation Workshop”.

Quantum Wealth and Inertia


Inertia does not exist in quantum physics. Knowing this can help bring everlasting wealth and better health.

Merri and I added the quantum aspect to our International Business and Investing Course. We even changed the course name to Quantum Wealth because… of inertia and… because probably like you… we often work too hard… travel too much and… get so caught up in our daily activities that we do not take the time we should to look after our health and consciousness.

This is a vital part of wealth because good health and consciousness are essential ingredients in prosperity.

We need clear thinking… foresight… vitality to see what we should do and to persistently act in successful ways.

We need strong emotional drive and physical energy to succeed in today’s rapidly changing world… yet we must also beware of inertia in our material ambitions getting out of control!

We have been warned about the risks of  material inertia throughout the millennia. Several Chinese commentators beginning as early as the 12th century wrote about inertia. The translations go something like: “First man drinks wine. Second wine drinks wine. Third wine drinks man.”

Perhaps the most famous quote in this matter is from  Hokeky Sho, a Buddhist Sanskrit text “At the third cup, wine drinks the man.”

There is also a similar Japanese proverb about rice wine in the 1800s that inspired a poem by Edward Sill:

“At the punch bowl’s brink,
Let the thirsty think,
What they say in Japan:
First the man takes a drink,
Then the drink takes a drink,
Then the drink takes the man.”

The root of all these warnings is not just about wine or alcohol. These strings of wisdom are warnings about the pitfalls in inertia and the Law of Diminishing Returns.

Ancient texts of great wisdom show us how to combat negative material inertia.   The Bible shows other examples.

“Pray without ceasing.” -I Thessalonians 5:17
“Seven times a day I praise you for your righteous laws.” – Psalm 119:164

I say non Christian because so many religious publications provide this wisdom as well as yogic, shamanic and meditative scripts.

The fact that this idea was in the Hokeky Sho, a Sanskrit text shows it is in the Vedic ideals.

Muslims pray three to five times a day to remember God.  (Shia pray 3 times a day, Sunni 5 times).

Jews pray three times a day.

Various Christian faiths have Seven Hours of Prayer and with up to eight times a day to pray;  Lauds- 2.00am, Matins at  dawn, Prime,  Trece, Sext and
None about every three hours after and sunrise and Vespers at sunset, Compline at bed time and the Midnight Prayer.

A common thread in this wisdom is: stay in touch with the infinite non material quantum aspect of our existence.  Inertia does not exist in the quantum state and by connecting with this part of ourselves… we can avoid getting carried away by the material portion of our daily lives.  These wise messages tell us to balance our material lives with our spiritual lives.

However if you are like we are… this can be easier said than done.  We are continually bombarded with material stuff… news… ads… responsibilities… demands and material desires.

Business,  jobs, friends, children and daily activities do not always cooperate to fit nicely into such a schedule… so inertia takes over.  An emergency throws us off schedule so we work late.  This leads us to eat badly. This ruins our sleep. We wake late. Have to rush. Make mistakes. Have to fix. This makes us further behind and the faster we go the further behind we get!

Merri and I work at maintaining a good balance but when we let our daily work activities overwhelm us, we compensate in numerous ways to take good care of our health.

This seems to have worked.

I have only needed to see an MD three times in the past 25 or so years… once when my hand argued with a plate glass window… another time my knee challenged a chain saw. Both times the body lost the argument.   The third time… believe it or not a moth flew and became imbedded deep in my ear.  Yikes… it’s amazing how a tiny moth can bring a grown man down!    When you need trauma treatment, MDs are the best.

Merri once dislocated her elbow. That surgeon really helped.

Otherwise we try to focus on a balanced life style… nutrition… exercise and spiritual balance… no pills… no pharma… no procedures.

To find this balance between attaining good health and wealth at deeper levels we direct our activities in three ways… the first via quantum science.

Bob Shane helps us in this direction.  He is a space scientist who has been involved at the quantum scientific level of the aerospace industry for his entire career.   His studies in quantum physics helped him apply space science to understanding the deepest levels of balance in health.  Besides being the first person we turn to when we have health questions, he and his wife have been our very best friends for almost two decades.  He has helped Merri and me with our health enumerable times over all these years.

Bob is one of my main sources for modern health balancing information using quantum science so we invited him to be at our June 24 to 27 Quantum Wealth course in North Carolina to share modern Western science via frequency and the interrelationships between scaler and vector energy.

One way to look at health is in terms of frequency.  From a materialistic point of view good health is balance in the nature of our body.  This nature springs from a random (called stocastic) mixing of our material substratum.   Inertia comes when frequencies become incestuous (refined) create destructive harmonic resonance. Resonance greatly amplifies the inherent natural destructive or constructive nature of anything.

A well known example is of soldiers marching in unison on a bridge. Their steps can amplify a natural oscillation of the bridge to such a degree that it collapses.  Their unified motion removes too much randomness.

Quantum scientific health modalities work on frequencies at increasingly subtler levels… right down to our quantum state.

This is why I want to let you know that Bob will be available to demonstrate the most scientific and modern methods of physical balancing at the Quantum level on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, June 24 to 27, 2010.

More on what Bob can do in a moment first here are two others who will at the course because our courses reflect what we do and Merri and I meditate every day.

This is why we invited Ann Russel Roberts a professor at Elon University  who has taught esoteric yoga from Tibet privately to noted performing artists including Jon Bon Jovi. Her teaching extended to NYC  businesses including CBS, IBM, McGraw Hill and Columbia Artists.  Ann specializes in teaching the ancient, rare Tibetan Yoga Tsa Lung/Trul Khor  as received from Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche and Alejandro Raoul.

Ann danced, choreographed and taught professionally in New York  for 20 years.

Before forming her professional dance company Edge Dance Theatre, Ltd. she danced with other companies including Gus Solomons, the international Butoh Group X,  Robert  Yohn of Eric Hawkins Co. and in Japan with Sachio Ito.  Edge Dance Theatre, Ltd.  with international Dance Magazine reporting, “her  fine new ‘Legend’…authority and conviction in alluring choreography” won choreographic grants including the International Dance Festival in NYC and the Harkness Ballet Foundations of Dance Award.  Edge’s other NYC venues include DTW’s Bessie Schonberg Theater, the Cunningham Studio, Westbeth Theater, the Grammercy Arts Theater, the International Center and the Laban/Bartineff Institute.

Trained in Yogas, Gyrotonics and Pilates, Ms. Roberts specializes in teaching the ancient, rare Tibetan Yoga Tsa Lung/Trul Khor  as received from Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche and Alejandro Raoul.  After training for 3 years at Ligmincha, the international Bon Tibetan center in Va., she received  special permission to teach this rare yoga. She established two yoga courses based on Hatha, Kundalini and Tibetan Yogas at Elon University in the Performing Arts Department  where she now teaches. Her master teachers of Hatha and Kundalini  Yoga were Dharma Mittra and Yogi Bhajan respectively.

She has also received training in traditional Native American Arts and Ceremonies with Adanowa Aninvya, Tsa La Gi (Cherokee) High Medicine Priest and will be available to answer questions about meditation and yoga and its impact on thinking.. health and wealth.

Third, Jean Marie Butterlin will speak about Ecuador and natural health supplements… and how they present organic micro business opportunities.

Jean Marie Butterlin, who conducts our Ecuador shamanic tours, from our recent tour showed the connection between natural supplements, health and wealth.

ecuador-shamanic-tours

Jean Marie was born in France and after graduating in 1977 from the engineering college ICAM in Lille (France) moved to United States where he developed a homeopathic and dietary supplement business in Houston TX, with an aim at exporting the US made products  into Europe, with emphasis towards Belgium and France.

After living part time on both sides of the Atlantic he moved back  in 2002 to Europe where he has a prosperous business in the natural health field i.e. phytotherapy, mineral supplements, specialty cosmetics, as well as Quantum medical technology, internet publishing for the anti-aging market.

This quest for anti-aging remedies, products and techniques has lead him to discover Ecuador where he has moved so he can research and develop new approaches to longer and better lives and bring new products and techniques to more and more people in the United States and Europe.

In case you can’t make this course,  come to our Quantum Wealth in October!  Thursday, through Sunday, 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th in the glorious leaf change of the High Country of the Blue Ridge…we are now taking pre enrollments for this course as Bob, Ann, Jean Marie will all be there!

How We Can Serve You

How to Have Real Safety

garyheadshot

There are only three reasons why we should invest.  We invest for income.  We invest to resell our investments for more than we had invested.  We invest to make our world a better place.

We should not invest for fun, excitement or to get rich quick, or in a panic due to market corrections.

This is why the core Pi model portfolio (that forms the bulk of my own equity portfolio) consists of 19 shares and this position has not changed in over two years.  During these two years we have been steadily accumulating the same 19 shares and have not traded once.

The portfolio has done well in 2017, up 22.6%, better than the DJI Index.

motif

However one or even two year’s performance is not enough data to create a safe strategy.

The good value portfolio above is based entirely on good value financial information and mathematically based safety programs developed around models that date back 91 and 24 years.

The Pifolio is a theoretical portfolio of MSCI Country Benchmark Index ETFs that cover all the good value markets developed combining my 50 years of investing experience with study of the mathematical market value analysis of Keppler Asset Management and the mathematical trend analysis of Tradestops.com.

In my opinion, Keppler is one of the best market statisticians in the world.  Numerous very large fund managers, such as State Street Global Advisers, use his analysis to manage over $2.5 billion of funds.

The Pifolio analysis begins with Keppler who continually researches international major stock markets and compares their value based on current book to price, cash flow to price, earnings to price, average dividend yield, return on equity and cash flow return.  He compares each major stock market’s history.

Fwd: keppler

Michael Kepler CEO Keppler Asset Management.

Michael is a brilliant mathematician.  We have tracked his analysis for over 20 years.   He continually researches international major stock markets and compares their value based on current book to price, cash flow to price, earnings to price, average dividend yield, return on equity and cash flow return.  He compares each stock market’s history.  From this, he develops his Good Value Stock Market Strategy and rates each market as a Buy, Neutral or Sell market.  His analysis is rational, mathematical and does not cause worry about short term ups and downs.  Keppler’s strategy is to diversify into an equally weighted portfolio of the MSCI Indices of each BUY market.

This is an easy, simple and effective approach to zeroing in on value because little time, management and guesswork is required.  You are investing in a diversified portfolio of good value indices.

A BUY rating for an index does NOT imply that any stock in that country is an attractive investment, so you do not have to spend hours of research aimed at picking specific shares.  It is not appropriate or enough to instruct a stockbroker to simply select stocks in the BUY rated countries.  Investing in the index is like investing in all the shares in the index.  You save time because all you have to do is invest in the ETF to gain the profit potential of the entire market.

To achieve this goal of diversification the Pifolio consists of Country Index ETFs.

Country Index ETFs are similar to an index mutual fund but are shares normally traded on a major stock exchange that tracks an index of shares in a specific country.  ETFs do not try to beat the index they represent.  The management is passive and tries to emulate the performance of the index.

A country ETF provides diversification into a basket of equities in the country covered.  The expense ratios for most ETFs are lower than those of the average mutual fund as well so such ETFs provide diversification and cost efficiency.

Here is the Pifolio I personally use.

70% is diversified into Keppler’s good value (BUY rated) developed markets: Australia, Austria, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Norway, Singapore and the United Kingdom.

30% of the Pifolio is invested in Keppler’s good value (BUY rated) emerging markets: Brazil, Chile, China, Colombia, the Czech Republic, South Korea, Malaysia and Taiwan.

The Pifolio consists of iShares ETFs that invested in each of the MSCI indicies of the good value BUY markets.

For example, the iShares MSCI Australia (symbol EWA) is a Country Index ETF that tracks the investment results the Morgan Stanley Capital Index MSCI Australia Index which is composed mainly of large cap and small cap stocks traded primarily on the Australian Stock Exchange mainly of companies in consumer staples, financials and materials. This ETF is non-diversified outside of Australia.

iShares is owned by Black Rock, Inc. the world’s largest asset manager with over $4 trillion in assets under management.

Pi uses math to reveal the best value markets then protects its positions using more math created by Richard Smith founder and CEO of Tradestops.com to track each share’s trend.

We use Smith’s  algorithms that calculate momentum of the good value markets.

dr richard smith

The Stock State Indicators at Tradestops.com act as a full life-cycle measure that indicates the health of each stock. They are designed to tell you at a glance exactly where any stock stands relative to Dr. Smith’s proprietary algorithms.

Kepppler’s analysis shows the value of markets.  The SSI signal indicates the current trend of each stock (performing well, or in a period of correction, or stopped out).

The SSI tells you one of five things:

Screen Shot 2017-08-08 at 6.51.59 AM

Screen Shot 2017-08-08 at 6.52.12 AM

Screen Shot 2017-08-08 at 6.52.22 AM

Akey component of the Stock State Indicator (SSI) system is momentum based on the latest 521 days of trading.  A stock changes from red to green in the SSI system only after it has already gone up a healthy amount and has started a solid uptrend.

How SSI Alerts Are Triggered

If the position has already moved more than its Volatility Quotient below a recent high, the SSI Stop Loss will trigger.  This is an indicator that the position has corrected more than what is normal for this stock.  It means to take caution.

Below is an example of how SSIs work.  This example shows the Developed Market Pifolio that we track at Tradestops.com.

tradestops

Equal Weight Good Value Developed Market Pifolio.

At the time this example was copied, all the ETFs in the Developed Market Pifolio (above) currently had a green SSI.

We do not know when the US market will fall.  We only do know that it will.  We also do not know if, when the US market corrects, global markets will follow or rise instead.

The fact that the Pifilios are invested in good value markets reduces long term risk.

Additional protection is added by using trailing stops based on the 521 day momentum of each stock in the Pifolio.

Take for example the graph below from our Tradestops account that shows the iShares MSCI United Kingdom ETF.  This ETF had a green SSI and a Volatility Index (VQ) of 13.26%.  This means the share can move 13.26% before there is a trend shift.

tradestops

iShares MSCI United Kingdom ETF (Symbol EWU)

Pi purchased the share at$31.26 and in this example the share was $34.43 and rising.  Tradestop’s algorithms suggested that if the price drops to $31.69 its momentum would have stopped and it would have shifted into trading sideways.   The stop loss price is currently $29.86.  If EWU continues to rise, both the yellow warning and the stop loss price will rise as well.

When the US stock market bull ends, know one knows for sure how long or how severe the correction will be.

When the bear arrives, what will happen to global and especially good value markets?

No  one knows the answer to this question.

What we do know is that the equally weighted, good value market Pifolios have the greatest potential long term and that math based trailing stops can be used to protect against a secular global stock market correction when it comes.

My fifty years of global investing experience helps take advantage of numerous long term cycles that are part of the universal math that affects all investments.

What you get when you subscribe to Pi.

You immediately receive a 120 page basic training course that teaches the Pi Strategy.   You learn all the Pi strategies, what they are, how to use them and what each can do for you, your lifestyle and investing.

You also begin receiving regular emailed Pifiolio updates and online access to all the Pifolio updates of the last two years.  Each update examines the current activity in a Pifolio, how it is changing, why and how the changes might help your investing or not.

Included in the basic training is an additional 120 page PDF value analysis of 46 stock markets (23 developed markets and 23 emerging stock markets).  This analysis looks at the price to book, price to earnings, average yield and much more.

You also receive two special reports.

In the 1980s, a remarkable set of two economic circumstances helped anyone who spotted them become remarkably rich.  Some of my readers made enough to retire.  Others picked up 50% currency gains.  Then the cycle ended.  Warren Buffett explained the importance of this ending in a 1999 Fortune magazine interview.  He said:  Let me summarize what I’ve been saying about the stock market: I think it’s very hard to come up with a persuasive case that equities will over the next 17 years perform anything like—anything like—they’ve performed in the past 17!

I did well then, but always thought, “I should have invested more!”  Now those circumstances have come together and I am investing in them again.

The circumstances that created fortunes 30 years ago were an overvalued US market (compared to global markets) and an overvalued US dollar.  The two conditions are in place again!

30 years ago, the US dollar rose along with Wall Street.  Profits came quickly over three years.  Then the dollar dropped like a stone, by 51%  in just two years.  A repeat of this pattern is growing and could create up to 50% extra profit if we start using strong dollars to accumulate good value stock market ETFs in other currencies.

This is the most exciting opportunity I have seen since we started sending our reports on international investing ideas more than three decades ago.  The trends are so clear that I have created a short, but powerful report “Three Currency Patterns for 50% Profits or More.”   This report shows how to earn an extra 50% from currency shifts with even small investments.  I kept the report short and simple, but included links to 153 pages of  Good Value Stock Market research and Asset Allocation Analysis.

The report shows 20 good value investments and a really powerful tactic that shows the most effective and least expensive way to accumulate these bargains in large or even very small amounts (less than $5,000).  There is extra profit potential of at least 50% so the report is worth a lot.

This report sells for $29.95 but in this special offer, you receive the report, “Three Currency Patterns for 50% Profits or More” FREE when you subscribe to Pi.

Plus get the $39.95 report “The Platinum Dip 2018” free.

With investors watching global stock markets bounce up and down, many missed two really important profit generating events over the last two years.  The price of silver dipped below $14 an ounce as did shares of the iShares Silver ETF (SLV).   The second event is that the silver gold ratio hit 80, compared to a ratio of 230 only two years before.

In September 2015, I prepared a special report “Silver Dip 2015” about a silver speculation, leveraged with a British pound loan, that could increase the returns in a safe portfolio by as much as eight times.  The tactics described in that report generated 62.48% profit in just nine months.

I have updated this report and added how to use the Dip Strategy with platinum.   The “Platinum Dip 2018” report shares the latest in a series of long term lessons gained through 40 years of speculating and investing in precious metals.  I released the 2015 report, when the gold silver ratio slipped to 80.  The ratio has corrected and that profit has been taken and now a new precious metals dip has emerged.

I have prepared a new special report “Platinum Dip 2018” about a leveraged speculation that can increase the returns in a safe portfolio by as much as eight times.

You also learn from the Value Investing Seminar, our premier course, that we have been conducting for over 30 years.  Tens of thousands of delegates have paid up to $999 to attend.  Now you can join the seminar online FREE in this special offer.

This three day course is available in sessions that are 10 to 20 minutes long for easy, convenient learning.   You can listen to each session any time and as often as you desire.

The sooner you hear what I have to say about current markets, the better you’ll be able to cash in on perhaps the best investing opportunity since 1982.

Tens of thousands have paid up to $999 to attend.

In 2018 I celebrate my 52nd anniversary in the investing business and 50th year of writing about global investing.  Our reports and seminars have helped readers have better lives, with less stress yet make fortunes during up and down markets for decades.  This information is invaluable to investors large and small because even small amounts can easily be invested in the good value shares we cover in our seminar.

Stock and currency markets are cyclical.  These cycles create extra profit for value investors who invest when everyone else has the markets wrong.  One special seminar session looks at how to spot value from cycles.  Stocks rise from the cycle of war, productivity and demographics.  Cycles create recurring profits.  Economies and stock markets cycle up and down around every 15 to 20 years as shown in this graph.

stock-Charts

The effect of war cycles on the US Stock Market since 1906.

Bull and bear cycles are based on cycles of human interaction, war, technology and productivity.  Economic downturns can create war.

The chart above shows the war – stock market cycle.  Military struggles (like the Civil War, WWI, WWII and the Cold War: WW III) super charge inventiveness that creates new forms of productivity…the steam engine, the internal combustion engine,  production line processes, jet engines, TV, farming techniques, plastics, telephone, computer and lastly during the Cold War, the internet.  The military technology shifts to domestic use.  A boom is created that leads to excess.  Excess leads to correction. Correction creates an economic downturn and again to war.

Details in the online seminar include:

* How to easily buy global currencies, shares and bonds.

* Trading down and the benefits of investing in real estate in Small Town USA.  We will share why this breakout value is special and why we have been recommending good value real estate in this area since 2009.

* What’s up with gold and silver?  One session looks at my current position on gold and silver and asset protection.  We review the state of the precious metal markets and potential problems ahead for US dollars.  Learn how low interest rates eliminate  opportunity costs of diversification in precious metals and foreign currencies.

* How to improve safety and increase profit with leverage and staying power.  The seminar reveals Warren Buffett’s value investing strategy from research published at Yale University’s website.  This research shows that the stocks Buffet chooses are safe (with low beta and low volatility), cheap (value stocks with low price-to-book ratios), and high quality (stocks of companies that are profitable, stable, growing, and with high payout ratios). His big, extra profits come from leverage and staying power.  At times Buffet’s portfolio, as all value portfolios, has fallen, but he has been willing and able to wait long periods for the value to reveal itself and prices to recover.

keppler asset management chart

This chart based on a 45 year portfolio study shows that holding a diversified good value portfolio (based on a  good value strategy) for 13 month’s time, increases the probability of out performance to 70%.  However those who can hold the portfolio for five years gain a 88% probability of beating the bellwether in the market and after ten years the probability increases to 97.5%.

Time is your friend when you use a good value strategy.  The longer you can hold onto a well balanced good value portfolio, the better the odds of outstanding success.

Learn how much leverage to use.  Leverage is like medicine, the key is dose.  The best ratio is normally 1.6 to 1.  We’ll sum up the strategy; how to leverage cheap, safe, quality stocks and for what period of time based on the times and each individual’s circumstances.

Learn to plan in a way so you never run out of money.  The seminar also has a session on the importance of having and sticking to a plan.  See how success is dependent on conviction, wherewithal, and skill to operate with leverage and significant risk.  Learn a three point strategy based on my 50 years of investing experience combined with wisdom gained from some of the world’s best investment managers and economic mathematical scientists.

The online seminar also reveals  the results of a $80,000 share purchase cost test that found the least expensive way to invest in good value.  The keys to this portfolio are good value, low cost, minimal fuss and bother.  Plus a great savings of time.  Trading is minimal, usually not more than one or two shares are bought or sold in a year.  I wanted to find the very least expensive way to create and hold this portfolio so I performed this test.

I have good news about the cost of the seminar as well.   For almost three decades the seminar fee has been $799 for one or $999 for a couple. Tens of thousands paid this price, but online the seminar is $297.

Here is what Bob Shane will bring to our North Carolina course.

Bob has been a friend and client for well over two decades and has helped Merri and me with our health many, many times over these years. He has been our most trusted and best friend.

Here we are with Bob and some other friends at a…

20070215b    Ecuador Water  Problem

thermal springs in Ecuador

20070215c   Ecuador Water  Problem

Bob will be available to provide three special biofeedback sessions at the Quantum level with three instruments:

1.    ESTeck: a French instrument that provides biofeedback information about body systems like circulation, digestion, neurological, hormonal, spinal, etc. The ESTEck combines information from Heart Rate Variability, oxygen saturation of the blood and the interstitial fluids to give insights into physical stresses.

2.    Core Inergetix: a German device that provides reactivity data of the body’s subtle fields with over one hundred thousand informational patterns. These resonances suggest insights into  patterns in the energy field, from any part of a person’s life, that need to be balanced.   Disturbing blockages that hinder the manifestation of one’s goals and purpose need to be reduced. Patterns of positive potential that have not been fully developed need to be enhanced.

3.    BioModulator: a biofeedback device developed from the original Russian SCENAR technology which is used to restore the normal bioelectrical balance of the tissue for muscle re-education, normal muscle tone, and pain control.

Let’s start with the BioModulator or  SCENAR type device (an acronym for Self-Controlled Energo Neuro Adaptive Regulation) which is an evoked response neuro stimulator combined with a dual biofeedback mode. This instrument allows simultaneous  detection and  balancing of abnormal signals evoked from nerves.

This works at the deepest levels of our physiology. Traditional medicine perceives the body as a complex system of chemical reactions
and thus alters pathology via chemicals (pharmaceuticals).

Scenar works at a deeper level built on the belief that the body is  composed of many separate quantum information fields. The Scenar alters the bioelectrical nature of the tissue via electronic information fields.

The Scenar reads these various fields, matches them against norms and then balances the fields that indicate they are ready to be balanced.

Here are the fundamentals. All health balancing works at one of five levels, organ, tissue, molecular, atomic and quantum. If you break a
leg or someone shoots you in the kidney, the M.D. will work on that physical problem quickly. They’ll set and mobilize the leg or replace
the blasted kidney.

However the root of health problems are subtler. Some issues can be resolved through better nutrition which alters all the tissue in the
body (perhaps changing it from being too acidic to alkaline, etc.). Sometimes the problem is deeper and molecular intervention needs to be
involved. (Many pharmaceuticals work at this level.) Sometimes even deeper imbalances require atomic alterations.

But the deepest aspects of healing are at the most basic levels of quantum existence and creation. This is where Scenar works.

The Scenar may seem far out, but it was invented in Russia as an  energetic medical device for Russian astronauts in space who did not have access to doctors. Though Scenar was called the “Star Trek Device” by the European press and as way out as it seems, it is FDA  registered.  Dr. Keith Scott-Mumby, writing in Virtual Medicine (London: Thorsons 1999), reports beneficial effects in many body systems. The writing also showed that the device greatly reduces recovery times. At the 2000 Olympics in Australia, the Scenar was called Russia’s “secret weapon,” allowing athletes to compete after sustaining serious injuries.

You can join us at our June course and meet with Bob Shane, Thursday, Friday Saturday and Sunday. Here’s an email address so you can schedule a meeting since reservations with Bob are strictly limited. shanebob@msn.com

You can read an entire explanation of how Scenar works at – see https://www.garyascott.com/health/644/

The Scenar session is worth coming to the seminar alone but there are two additional remarkable techniques so next let’s look at the ESTeck.

The ESTeck is a French instrument that looks more at the physical systems of the body than the energetic systems.  Several noninvasive and pain free measurement technologies are used with low and medium frequency signals applied through several electrodes to detect the electrical flow in the interstitial fluids (fluids surrounding all cells, between the cell membrane and the capillary walls). The interstitial fluids are used because unlike the blood they do not have buffers that maintain that prevent change to a very narrow.  The interstitial fluids change quickly with cellular metabolism giving much insight into cellular function.  By combining the mathematics of electrical flow in fluids with charged ions and the partial pressure of gasses in fluids estimates of electrolytes, neutransmitters, hormones , acid-base balance can be made.

A second technology is used to measure Heart Rate Variability (HRV).  This technique analyses the variations in timing of the heart beat.  These measurements are combined with a third technology measuring the saturation of the blood with oxygen.

Combining the calculations from all three technologies allows estimation of the stress levels many body systems such as circulation, digestive, neurological, spinal, respiratory, etc.

The third instrument is the Core Inergetix: The Core is a German device that is totally focused on the non-physical aspects of health and spiritual well being.  The purpose is to find aberrations in the holographic blueprint that precedes manifestation in the physical realm.  The intention is to provide information to the subconscious so the blueprint might be corrected and a physical issue prevented.

For cases where physical problems already exist then this technology can provide a support function to the regular care of a Medical Professional.  The Core does not work on the physical body but tests the subconscious or subtle energy field resonance with over one hundred thousand information patterns to find which ones may be interfering with the medical treatment plan of the doctor.

By utilizing stress reduction, relaxation and biofeedback techniques with these informational patterns the disrupting data may be reduced and thereby help the medical treatment to be more effective and efficient.

This session alone is again worth the cost of this course. Believe me, I have experienced Bob’s work for more than two decades and he is good.

Those who wish to do so can schedule individual biofeedback sessions at the June course.

How We Can Serve You

How to Have Real Safety

garyheadshot

There are only three reasons why we should invest.  We invest for income.  We invest to resell our investments for more than we had invested.  We invest to make our world a better place.

We should not invest for fun, excitement or to get rich quick, or in a panic due to market corrections.

This is why the core Pi model portfolio (that forms the bulk of my own equity portfolio) consists of 19 shares and this position has not changed in over two years.  During these two years we have been steadily accumulating the same 19 shares and have not traded once.

The portfolio has done well in 2017, up 22.6%, better than the DJI Index.

motif

However one or even two year’s performance is not enough data to create a safe strategy.

The good value portfolio above is based entirely on good value financial information and mathematically based safety programs developed around models that date back 91 and 24 years.

The Pifolio is a theoretical portfolio of MSCI Country Benchmark Index ETFs that cover all the good value markets developed combining my 50 years of investing experience with study of the mathematical market value analysis of Keppler Asset Management and the mathematical trend analysis of Tradestops.com.

In my opinion, Keppler is one of the best market statisticians in the world.  Numerous very large fund managers, such as State Street Global Advisers, use his analysis to manage over $2.5 billion of funds.

The Pifolio analysis begins with Keppler who continually researches international major stock markets and compares their value based on current book to price, cash flow to price, earnings to price, average dividend yield, return on equity and cash flow return.  He compares each major stock market’s history.

Fwd: keppler

Michael Kepler CEO Keppler Asset Management.

Michael is a brilliant mathematician.  We have tracked his analysis for over 20 years.   He continually researches international major stock markets and compares their value based on current book to price, cash flow to price, earnings to price, average dividend yield, return on equity and cash flow return.  He compares each stock market’s history.  From this, he develops his Good Value Stock Market Strategy and rates each market as a Buy, Neutral or Sell market.  His analysis is rational, mathematical and does not cause worry about short term ups and downs.  Keppler’s strategy is to diversify into an equally weighted portfolio of the MSCI Indices of each BUY market.

This is an easy, simple and effective approach to zeroing in on value because little time, management and guesswork is required.  You are investing in a diversified portfolio of good value indices.

A BUY rating for an index does NOT imply that any stock in that country is an attractive investment, so you do not have to spend hours of research aimed at picking specific shares.  It is not appropriate or enough to instruct a stockbroker to simply select stocks in the BUY rated countries.  Investing in the index is like investing in all the shares in the index.  You save time because all you have to do is invest in the ETF to gain the profit potential of the entire market.

To achieve this goal of diversification the Pifolio consists of Country Index ETFs.

Country Index ETFs are similar to an index mutual fund but are shares normally traded on a major stock exchange that tracks an index of shares in a specific country.  ETFs do not try to beat the index they represent.  The management is passive and tries to emulate the performance of the index.

A country ETF provides diversification into a basket of equities in the country covered.  The expense ratios for most ETFs are lower than those of the average mutual fund as well so such ETFs provide diversification and cost efficiency.

Here is the Pifolio I personally use.

70% is diversified into Keppler’s good value (BUY rated) developed markets: Australia, Austria, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Norway, Singapore and the United Kingdom.

30% of the Pifolio is invested in Keppler’s good value (BUY rated) emerging markets: Brazil, Chile, China, Colombia, the Czech Republic, South Korea, Malaysia and Taiwan.

The Pifolio consists of iShares ETFs that invested in each of the MSCI indicies of the good value BUY markets.

For example, the iShares MSCI Australia (symbol EWA) is a Country Index ETF that tracks the investment results the Morgan Stanley Capital Index MSCI Australia Index which is composed mainly of large cap and small cap stocks traded primarily on the Australian Stock Exchange mainly of companies in consumer staples, financials and materials. This ETF is non-diversified outside of Australia.

iShares is owned by Black Rock, Inc. the world’s largest asset manager with over $4 trillion in assets under management.

Pi uses math to reveal the best value markets then protects its positions using more math created by Richard Smith founder and CEO of Tradestops.com to track each share’s trend.

We use Smith’s  algorithms that calculate momentum of the good value markets.

dr richard smith

The Stock State Indicators at Tradestops.com act as a full life-cycle measure that indicates the health of each stock. They are designed to tell you at a glance exactly where any stock stands relative to Dr. Smith’s proprietary algorithms.

Kepppler’s analysis shows the value of markets.  The SSI signal indicates the current trend of each stock (performing well, or in a period of correction, or stopped out).

The SSI tells you one of five things:

Screen Shot 2017-08-08 at 6.51.59 AM

Screen Shot 2017-08-08 at 6.52.12 AM

Screen Shot 2017-08-08 at 6.52.22 AM

Akey component of the Stock State Indicator (SSI) system is momentum based on the latest 521 days of trading.  A stock changes from red to green in the SSI system only after it has already gone up a healthy amount and has started a solid uptrend.

How SSI Alerts Are Triggered

If the position has already moved more than its Volatility Quotient below a recent high, the SSI Stop Loss will trigger.  This is an indicator that the position has corrected more than what is normal for this stock.  It means to take caution.

Below is an example of how SSIs work.  This example shows the Developed Market Pifolio that we track at Tradestops.com.

tradestops

Equal Weight Good Value Developed Market Pifolio.

At the time this example was copied, all the ETFs in the Developed Market Pifolio (above) currently had a green SSI.

We do not know when the US market will fall.  We only do know that it will.  We also do not know if, when the US market corrects, global markets will follow or rise instead.

The fact that the Pifilios are invested in good value markets reduces long term risk.

Additional protection is added by using trailing stops based on the 521 day momentum of each stock in the Pifolio.

Take for example the graph below from our Tradestops account that shows the iShares MSCI United Kingdom ETF.  This ETF had a green SSI and a Volatility Index (VQ) of 13.26%.  This means the share can move 13.26% before there is a trend shift.

tradestops

iShares MSCI United Kingdom ETF (Symbol EWU)

Pi purchased the share at$31.26 and in this example the share was $34.43 and rising.  Tradestop’s algorithms suggested that if the price drops to $31.69 its momentum would have stopped and it would have shifted into trading sideways.   The stop loss price is currently $29.86.  If EWU continues to rise, both the yellow warning and the stop loss price will rise as well.

When the US stock market bull ends, know one knows for sure how long or how severe the correction will be.

When the bear arrives, what will happen to global and especially good value markets?

No  one knows the answer to this question.

What we do know is that the equally weighted, good value market Pifolios have the greatest potential long term and that math based trailing stops can be used to protect against a secular global stock market correction when it comes.

My fifty years of global investing experience helps take advantage of numerous long term cycles that are part of the universal math that affects all investments.

Learn to plan in a way so you never run out of money.  The seminar also has a session on the importance of having and sticking to a plan.  See how success is dependent on conviction, wherewithal, and skill to operate with leverage and significant risk.  Learn a three point strategy based on my 50 years of investing experience combined with wisdom gained from some of the world’s best investment managers and economic mathematical scientists.

The online seminar also reveals  the results of a $80,000 share purchase cost test that found the least expensive way to invest in good value.  The keys to this portfolio are good value, low cost, minimal fuss and bother.  Plus a great savings of time.  Trading is minimal, usually not more than one or two shares are bought or sold in a year.  I wanted to find the very least expensive way to create and hold this portfolio so I performed this test.

I have good news about the cost of the seminar as well.   For almost three decades the seminar fee has been $799 for one or $999 for a couple. Tens of thousands paid this price, but online the seminar is $297.

The Power in Sound


There is incredible power in sound.

In fact there is so much power in sound that the power of one sound… Om… is now being researched.

Excerpts from an article in England’s Guardian Newspaper entitled “Improbable research: The repetitive physics of Om” tells us more when it says:

Indian scientists wield sophisticated mathematics to dissect and analyse the traditional meditation chanting sound ‘Om’

Two Indian scientists are wielding sophisticated mathematics to dissect and analyse the traditional meditation chanting sound “Om”. The Om team has published six monographs in academic journals. These plumb certain acoustic subtleties of Om, which these researchers say is “the divine sound”.
Om has many variations. In a study published in the International Journal of Computer Science and Network Security, the researchers explain: “It may be very fast, several cycles per second. Or it may be slower, several seconds for each cycling of [the] Om mantra. Or it might become extremely slow, with the mmmmmm sound continuing in the mind for much longer periods but still pulsing at that slow rate.

The important technical fact is that no matter what form of Om one chants at whatever speed, there is always a basic Omness to it.

Ajay Anil Gurjar and Siddharth A Ladhake published their first OM paper, Time-Frequency Analysis of Chanting Sanskrit Divine Sound “OM”, in 2008 in the International Journal of Computer Science and Network Security.

Ladhake is the principal at Sipna’s College of Engineering and Technology in Amravati, India. Gurjar is an assistant professor in that institution’s department of electronics and telecommunication. Both specialise in electronic signal processing.

They now sub-specialise in analysing the one very special signal.

In the introductory paper, Gurjar and Ladhake explain (in case there is someone unaware of the basics): “Om is a spiritual mantra, outstanding to fetch peace and calm. The entire psychological pressure and worldly thoughts are taken away by the chanting of Om mantra.”

No one has explained the biophysical processes that underlie this fetching of calm and taking away of thoughts. Gurjar and Ladhake’s time-frequency analysis is a tiny step along that hitherto little-taken branch of the path of enlightenment.

They apply a mathematical tool called wavelet transforms to a digital recording of a person chanting “Om”.

Merri and I experience the power of sound… every day…  we enjoy the benefits inherent in music and the sound Om.  This is why we developed our Super Thinking plus Spanish and Quantum Wealth courses… to use this power for greater health, wealth and fulfillment… 300% of life.

The power of music (frequencies in tune with the flow of nature) rests in the fact that music can create order out of chaos.

Yehudi Menuhin expressed the power of music in his book “Theme and Variations” this way: Music creates order out of chaos; for rhythm imposes unanimity upon the divergent, melody imposes continuity of the disjointed, and harmony imposes compatibility upon the incongruous.  Thus a confusion surrenders to order and noise to music, and as we through music attain that greater universal order which rests upon fundamental relationships of geometrical and mathematical proportion, direction is supplied to mere repetitious time, power to the multiplication of elements, and purpose to random association.   

Sound… as seemingly as simple as OM… can deliver almost unimaginable power.

Many ancient cultures understood that music embodies within its tones, elements of the celestial order that govern the universe.

As in music, so in life. Audible sound, including music manifests from the most fundamentals vibrations that weave the universal tapestry.

One thread that weaves through this blanket of reality is OM.   Long before Western scientists began investigating music and sound in a scientific way, many wise philosophies and sciences were divined from the primal sound… expanding though mathematical grace to the point where an infinite unbounded intelligence could be glimpsed… and even used via the human form.

The Chinese for example believed that the primal sound is present in all things as a divine frequency.  This one unifying vibration then divides into twelve sub frequencies that could be measured.   This realization created astrology… the study of the Cosmic Tone.

Astrology is based on the twelve tomes… each extending a frequency influence everywhere.   This important mathematical study remains in many aspects of modern life… the twelve months of the year… the twenty four hours a day for example.

Many  ancient beliefs about sound… chants… music… are being restated by studies in numerous fields… quantum physics… medical research (see the studies of neurosurgeon Dr. Karl Pribram) and computer sciences as shown above.

What can the power in music do for us?  First, the power in music can help us be healthier.

Merri and I just returned from extensive physical exams and based on heart, lung and various organ capacities we are both said to be nearly 15 years younger biologically than chronologically.

I do not get very caught up in numbers like this but do believe that Merri’s and my substantial energy, enthusiasm and happiness and the fact that we have not needed an MD… or medication for any type of sickness in over 30 years, has a great deal to do with the fact that  we use music extensively to integrate our mind with our body.

For example just listening to certain baroque music can reduce blood pressure and heart beat.

Second, the power in music can help us be wealthier. Again and again, at times when stock markets seem at their best, I have been able to provide readers with investment warnings because I study market frequencies while listening to musical frequencies.  Using music to integrate brain waves and induce more holistic thought about society, economics and markets helps see through the dangerous noise of daily movement to spot upcoming realities.  This ability to defy the common knowledge… outwit trends… and not be swayed by the herd… so we can spot value creates the energy to generate everlasting wealth.  

Third, the power in music can make us more intelligent. Actually a better way to describe this is to say that music helps our logic connect with and use the infinite wisdom that we are and already possess.

There is enormous power in sound and it is available to all of us… almost free. We can use sound and music for better health… increased wealth and fulfillment.   We hope that sounds good to you!

Gary

We are offering the power of sound in three ways we call the ABC of power learning:

#A: International Investing and Business plus Quantum Wealth seminar. The Quantum Wealth workshop in this seminar shows how to attain wealth continuously, effortlessly, in a fulfilling, enjoyable and positive way.  This workshop will help you stop worrying about money, bad governments, the falling dollar… inflation and all the future other horribles. Quantum Wealth reduces stress… improves health and helps income to flow from doing what you love.

the power of music.

We have been incorporating the ideas of Quantum Health and Quantum Wealth into our courses and seminars for decades. The one day Quantum workshop solidifies this knowledge.

The foundation of Quantum Wealth is to integrate:

* Logic with intuition.  The benefit is increased prosperity from better adaptation to change.

* Desire with action.  The benefit is more enjoyment and fulfillment from life.

* Good health with everlasting wealth. The benefit is reduction of stress, more energy and feeling better.

Join us here, at our North Carolina home.

#B: How to gain Super Thinking abilities, increased intelligence and super thinking into our Super Thinking + Spanish Course for many years but now have added this to our international investing and business seminars to create quantum wealth. This course teaches how to listen to music for more energy, power, intellect better health and everlasting happiness and wealth.

Music helps integrate four categories of brainwaves, ranging from beta waves, the fastest of the four different brainwaves to alpha, theta and the final brainwave state, delta. Delta brainwaves are of the greatest amplitude and slowest frequency.  Deep dreamless sleep takes you down to the lowest frequency.

Merri and I listen to 60 beat, ten cycle classical music as we work.  We allow these waves to interconnect freely so gain unimaginable energy and an intellect that goes beyond ourselves as the music relaxes, enhances and opens our intuition.

The right types of music moves the mind into Alpha and even deeper states of knowing.

Health benefits are gained as blood pressure can drop, heart rates slow and the mind becomes calmed… and you become smarter.  You tap into your higher intelligence and are more likely to have… and  enjoy… success.

Super Thinking plus Spanish looks at how to use super thinking to tap into deeper intelligence and what to do with this intelligence in business, investing and life so you improve the way you absorb, retain, recall information and think forever. To prove the point you learn Spanish in just four days.

#C: “NAAD YOGA – REALIZING THE NATURE OF REALITY THROUGH SOUND.”   This two day workshop on  Vedic music teaches how to make music
for more energy, power, intellect better health and everlasting wealth.

Following in the footsteps of Confucius who said:

“Music produces a kind of pleasure which human nature cannot do without.”

“When music and courtesy are better understood and appreciated, there will be no war.”

We may not be able to end the outside wars.  We can use music to win our inner battles so we reduce stress… live ore happily and succeed regardless of external circumstance.

There you have it, three courses that can help you gain power, energy and a better life.
