A better version of 'extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence' -which is bad science, anyway- would be to look for confirming low-probability events.
We hit a turning point in Martin Armstrong's ECM model yesterday. He writes about it here and considers the acquittal of the Bundy ranchers as the most likely confirming event, given it's an example of the actual humans successfully standing up to the centralised, corrupt totalitarianism we see all around:
The Case of William Penn was a major turning point. Just perhaps, yesterday’s verdict will be viewed as a tipping point in our struggle for freedom from a growing abusive and intrusive government that has lost its way and drunk with power.
As we now head into the next turning point next November, we will have the French and German elections. If both incumbents lose, we may be looking at the final break-up of the EU.
Well, it's his model and it has certainly been very good to me, so far be it for little ol' me to modify his analysis but... that is exactly what I am going to do.
Recall that the 2015.75 peak in government arrived with Russia doing something no one had done for decades: say nyet to American expansionism by intervening in Syria -marking the highwater mark for AngloAmerican imperialism. People forget that this was more surprising than it looks in retrospect.
- The centralising powers were having a ritualised holiday/meeting at the UN in New York -dual capital of AngloAmerican centralisation.
- In the days before, a gaggle of lies were thrown together from a flimsy online bullying report to Obama's ridiculous version of 'climate change and how to stop it' that 'called for' further online surveillance, further corporate power -particularly for banks (to fight climate change, you see)- and worldwide agreements on censorship.
- Obama even double-scheduled his bullshit NASA Mars announcement for when Putin was speaking at the UN.
So when we say 'peak in government' we are really talking 'peak in government'. Peak in centralised, corrupt archonism.
Then Putin said "nyet" and the whole thing started melting like cake in the rain. Check it out:
The 'peak in government'/centralisation team and its media cheerleaders have had an absolute mess of a time since 2015.75 as the world's horror at their behaviour grows and grows.
And at 2016.825 we get:
- A threat toward Russia from the State Department too feeble to even make the news. This is probably significant for a turning point as these particular few years of the model have something to do with the fate of Russia. More on that below.
- Dickileaks: The FBI reopens its
whitewashprobe of Clinton based on emails they found while investigating a sicko who was once in her orbit because he sent photos of his penis to an actual child. Again the spectre of women's bodies haunts this apocalypse -in this case in the form of a girl's body. If this brings her down there will be something eerie about it after her audaciously hypocritical attempts to play the woman card given her destruction of Arab and Haitian women and complicity in her husband's crimes.
- Yes, the Bundy ranchers acquittal.
So that might be something, right? These are events ranging in order of probability from the highest to the lowest. Are there any others? Any that might suggest the 'mandate of heaven' has been fully withdrawn from Team Centralisation? Some little ray of hope that would remind us of Gandalf's words, remind us "there are other forces in this world besides the will of Evil"?
Something supernatural. A miracle, maybe.
Oh yes. What about thousands of buffalo appearing at the Standing Rock protest? On the actual turning point of the model?
It's here that I overclock Armstrong's model, where I push it to do things a bit beyond its comfort zone. Like all brilliant, independent metaphysicians, Armstrong has his own conception of God, the universe, and so on. Which is fine. He's welcome to it, as we all are.
But here are two things I want to throw in now we have some low probability data points that indicate his AI models the cosmic.
- As mentioned, something about these next few years heading into a phase transition from government-to-private, central-to-decentral is bound up with the medium term fate of Russia (and thus the inevitable rise of Eurasia).
- The model itself, and its modeller, are also bound up in the fate of Russia and the rise of Putin. In the nineties, Armstrong got caught in the NYC bankers attempt to harvest Russia following the engineered collapse of the Soviet Union and it was the model's predictions that this would happen -and the harvest would fail- that attracted the CIA's attention that triggered his inevitably fraudulent trial and illegal imprisonment.
So we have models within models within models -operating on a cyclical basis as implied by these cycle models. Somebody is truly spinning somewhere.
I had a long list of ghost movie recommendations for this weekend. But I'm changing that recommendation to a single film. Watch The Forecaster.
Who needs ghost stories when we're in one?
