Wyckoff Trading Analysis - Point and Figure

Honestly, I'm not sure. I don't trade that much so I've only read a few articles on it. I'm not aware of the depth of the literature on it but it sounds like a lot of the different market structures you hear about either stem from Wyckoff or are explicable within the theory itself. It does seem to b

Finding a mentor/supervisor

Hey AlphabetCards. No, there's been no progress with it. I turned my attention to a different project which I'm still working on. I'm in the process of finding an editor, so by the time it's all completed it will probably be closer to the end of the year. I will probably return to it later, but I

Crypto Exchange Recommendation

Thank you. It's OK though, it wasn't as much as I lost when I was first starting to try my hand at trading :pac

Crypto Exchange Recommendation

If you're not trading then it certainly doesn't appear to make any sense. Some exchanges have tightened their security measures following hacks, but still, if you're intention is to HODL then offline is definitely the way to go. I lost a lot of coins in the Cryptopia hack for that reason

the Atemporal Universe - Resolving the Problem of Time

I am continually trying to update my understanding based on the different discussions and information I encounter. Usually this results in me presenting my understanding in a matter of fact way, and then getting into what might more accurately be termed disagreements than discussions. After all this

Dawkins vs Sartre/ existentialism vs biological determinism

Have you read Kahneman's Thinking, fast and slow? In it, he talks about the mind as having two systems, system 1 and system 2. These are just broad terms for the sake of discussion. System 1 is our more intuitive system, it's the one that acts in a split second to give an answer to a problem. Throu

Dawkins vs Sartre/ existentialism vs biological determinism

Not that its absent outside of Bell tests but if some decisions are determined and some are not, it seems coincidental that we can suddenly turn off the deterministic decision making process when it comes to Bell tests (and the other allegedly free decisions that we make). Is the decision to switch

Dawkins vs Sartre/ existentialism vs biological determinism

It just seems questionable how we can have some decisions which are determined and some which are not, and somehow those decisions which are not determined just so happen to coincide with choosing settings in Bell tests. "Random" is probably the wrong choice of word, particularly when choices are

Dawkins vs Sartre/ existentialism vs biological determinism

Thanks Fourier, I can understand that. How do we disinguish between apsects of our thoughts are cause or uncaused? If there is a discernible chain of causality for every decision, at what point does the chain become broken by our free will, only for our free will to set off a new chain of causal de

Bell's Inequality and Minkowski spaceitme/the Block Universe

I was under the impression that the Block Universe structure was a necessary consequence of Einsteinian relativity, in particular 4D Minkowski spacetime. There were a number of factors which, apparently, lead to this conclusion. Roger Penrose's Andromeda paradox offers some insight into the issue:

Dawkins vs Sartre/ existentialism vs biological determinism

Sitting in meditation today and a thought occurred to me, and then another one occurred, and then another, and another because that is how thinking happens. We do not choose our thoughts, our thoughts occur to us. It is the idea that we control our thinking which is commonly referred to as the illus

Dawkins vs Sartre/ existentialism vs biological determinism

Sorry, so many questions are popping up which I am having trouble reconciling. My thinking is that decisions are mental processes and mental processes are, I believe, demonstrably deterministic. How do we square this with undetermined free will? I know that the alternative is the massive coinciden

Dawkins vs Sartre/ existentialism vs biological determinism

Thinking more about free will and the implications quantum mechanics has for it, there are still a few questions popping up. This is probably part of the process of adjusting from a deterministic bias. We know that the decisions involved in quantum mechanical experiments must be free, given the sh
