January 2, 2008
A Few Highlights
*Catastrophic collapse of the dollar is possible –
as the language is active around that concept.
*Some kind of winter/spring natural disaster
which caused people to become angry about
*Possibly early elections, or at least calls for
that because of anger.
*Global economic collapse possible in Fall 2008
cascading of the US woes
*January “secrets Revealed” something comes out
that is ‘unauditable’ and we see some of the
presidential wannbe’s pull out of the race over
disclosures of their links to what in model space
is the finance/powers-that-be.
*USA-Pop begins a shift out of paper assets into
defensive positions to protect their retirements
which will be coming into question. Perhaps due
in part to the continuing CMO/CDO paper
collapse and how much has gone into pension
*Acceleration in the ‘employment crash” meme,
construction slows dramatically including commercial.
*Due to high prices, food enters its ‘encounters with
scarcity’ and gasoline soars (due to falling dollar)
*Key: People’s ability to live is tied to debt – and with
credit card defaults expected to rise in this period, the
widespread repudiation of credit card debt will mark
the emergence of the civil disobedience meme to the
corporate cannibalism/powers that be/global elite if
you want to think of it that way.
*Again, in modelspace we have the “millions of small
[financial] particles causing problems – repudiation
of credit card debt.
*Late March we see a female leader/figure emerge who
will begin to fill a role as ‘social unifier’ for the
financial rebellion/revolution meme. Most likely, she
will be from south/central American highlands and her
visibility and prestige will grow in national media
over the summer.
*Like to see a widespread tax rebellion – people
putting in phony claims for refunds, delaying
filing, and so forth as we see dollar crashing,
market declining and so forth with lack of
*Natural Disaster: We get high winds/damaging
rains over wide enough area to feed another
modelspace meme: Diaspora (population in
forced relocation). Incredible tornado season
with heavy rains or out of season hurricane, that
kind of thing and a lack of government response.
*More of the same – but somewhere in here we
get a temporal marker as a group of veterans
takes over a national monument and the powers-
that-be stand down because of the media
*Also in this period we see calls for an early
election as the government response to the
natural disaster earlier in the year will be judged
a failure and the economy will be in full-scale
*Tensions build in cities, encounters scarcity (.e.g.
food/fuel) are about
*The populace of the US impacted by a condition
like post traumatic stress – about the best we can
wrap our heads around it, it will be something
like “time shocked” or “time stunned”
*Just as you wrap you head around one big
change, another will come along bigger and
harder to absorb
*Mood of the population improves: People
have a renewed sense of optimism that the
corporate/elite can and will be replaced in the
elections and the ‘us against them’ grows
*Possibility that elections will be held early, but
it could just be language around that meme
*Global emotional release event begins –
*Think of the US economy as a lit fuse that is lit
over the early part of 2008
*In late 2008 the rest of the world’s currencies
are ‘touched off’ by the dollar and US decline.
*May be a global replay of what the 1932 bond
crash in the Great Depression was.
Balance of 2008
*Bad gets worse
*Highest payoff hedges for most people today will likely
– Debt reductions
– Getting in shape
– Having modest stores of food/clothing
– Agile mindset to adapt/cope with any change
– Fallback and backup plans – like relatives in another
city/state – that kind of thing.
– Learning to think independently and get a vision of the
future before it arrives so you can move ahead of crowds
and thus maintain your freedom of action
2009 Global Coastal Event
*The bigger things are in modelspace, the more lead time
*Collapse of the dollar has been in modelspace for 2 ½ years
or so. Even longer has been Global Coastal event.
*Global Coast Event likely in early to mid 2009
*Permanent loss of low lying territory globally but one
continent in particular get hit badly. We don’t know which
one, but we hope it’s like a Greenland or some not heavily
populated area. (*working on this now, but it’s at the limit
of our software)
*Places to avoid: anything at sea level (Bangladesh/Florida)
