Since Thursday, May 6, like so many others I have read articles about what caused Stock Market’s Wild Swing. Some have compared it with an episode of Rod Serling’s The Twilight Zone who once said “Imagination… its limits are only those of the mind itself.” My post is about our imagination where there are no limits of the mind but the mind itself.
Reading numerous articles by finance gurus, I get the impression that a lot happened on that Thursday but nothing really happened that day.
If you don’t understand their logic, then Rod says your imagination is limited by your mind itself. It happened but when you saw the result that evening, it was concluded nothing really happened during the half-hour episode.
- Another time Rod said “It may be said with a degree of assurance that not everything that meets the eye is as it appears.” This is so true about the Thursday event or should I say the debacle on Wall Street – a great disaster or was it?
- And his most famous quote “There is a fifth dimension, beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition.” [Someone gladly decided half-hour was enough to be in vastness of the space.]
- And at another instance, Rod said “There is nothing in the dark that isn’t there when the lights are on.” [His theory of light and darkness was proven on Thursday. Einstein, eat you heart out.]
- Another time Rod said “This highway leads to the shadowy tip of reality: you’re on a through route to the land of the different, the bizarre, the unexplainable.” [Someone thought half-hour episode was long enough for the stock market to be on the route to the land of the different, the bizarre, the unexplainable.]
Did the stock market actually float in the vastness and timeless twilight zone. For the half hour episode of the stock market, it was only the imagination but limited by the mind itself. Because when the episode was over – with all the commercials in between, nothing actually had happened. It was only your imagination that played on you or was it?
In a Nutshell
Was the stock market forced to go into the twilight zone or was it an accident on the part of humans [including computers – they act like humans too]? To some, it may have been an accident. To some higher ups, it may have been by design.
If anybody got into debt for some reason that day, consider it an episode from Tales From The Debtside – Oops! I meant to say Tales From The Darkside.Facebook.com/doable.finance
