I wake up during the night with thoughts inspired by a YouTube video last night on the meltdown of the NY stock market where trades are done in milliseconds (that’s 1,000 trades per second).

To humans, stocks, bonds, real estate and commodities represent human values. To a computer they represent mathematical values. So when it comes to computer trading, all the software is designed to do it make a profit independent of any associated human value. The program trades independent of any physical, emotional, mental and spiritual needs. It deals with symbols, quantities, price and time. That’s it.

Programming until 2 pm.

Nap time.

Dinner at Heather’s and a movie.
