Swing music and heartphase resonance

Over at David Wilcox's website, a poster in the comments section, markoff, wrote on February 22, 2012:

"The difference, Winter says, between Heavy Rock/Blues and Swing is heartphase resonance. The heart swings at one-TWO-three-FOUR (lubDUB lubDUB). Rock/blues is ONE-two-THREE-four (LUBdubLUBdub), 180 degrees out of phase to heart rhythm.

Reject counterheart beats of blues/rock as boring downer emotions at best and joy suppression at worst; cause IT DON'T MEAN A THING IF IT AIN'T GOT THAT SWING. Plants will tell ya... Bop On."

To that end, here is a video of Glen Miller's Moonlight Serenade.

High Frequency Trading

This unbelievable animated .gif file shows how high frequency, electronic trading has completely removed the human element. There are no people trading these positions, just computers. Yes, there may be some human agency involved to program these computers to trade, but this is now like a human trying to play chess with a computer; you can't do it. Unless you work for a big trading house that has the magic algorithm, there is no way the average person using a PC, a laptop, or god help you, a netbook, can hope to trade futures and make any money. The game is rigged and we can't win. The only way to win, is not to play.
