Things are strange and George Soros has stated that everything has gone wrong. Depends on your perspective I suppose.
It’s a rainy Sunday morning and I’m here staring at the computer screen wondering what to write about. Through my headphones the sounds of a YouTube video called 852 Hz - Let Go of Fear, Overthinking and Worries are soothing my aggressive nature. Yet, I’m overthinking what to write about. So I’m just going to write and see what comes out.
Antonio, my eldest son at 22, is on his way over for a visit. It’s our Sunday thing. Antonio is wise and becoming so much more than I ever could have been at that age. I’ve seldom written of my sons as its a very private part of my life. The three of them are the best thing I ever did for this world.
Loughlann, the youngest at 19, moved out around four months ago into a loft apartment about six blocks away. Between his work, taking responsibility for his life, and building his own YouTube channel, his life is full and rewarding. I hope to see him today.
Alexander, the middle son at 20, is more distant with me at this stage in his life. That is okay. It sounds like he’s happy and lives with his girlfriend close to Antonio. The boys are all very close, which makes me extremely happy.
Sometimes I’m sad about not being a better father. Being a normal father. Sometimes I’m just sad about all of the things which have passed me by. The things which I didn’t have the courage to reach out and hold while they were within my reach. Some readers may recall an early post titled Our Parallel Universe. These words here are an echo of that writing from so many years ago.
Dexter is sitting by the door watching for Antonio. It’s also one of the highlights of his week as what was once boy and puppy are now man and older dog. Consciousness across all material forms recognizes itself. Time passes without much consideration for our own personal fears and dreams. Time passes.
The passage of time makes me both sad and happy. All the fleeting moments. All the love.
This past Thursday I was on a plane traveling back to the city of Edmonton from the mine site up north where I spend most of my time now. Staring out the window I saw my hometown from the air for the first time in my life. Strange I know, but the main Fort McMurray airport is south of the city and I am now using the company owned and operated airstrip further north close to the mine site.
It looked small from high up inside the plane. The Borealis Forest surrounded it and heavy clouds were descending from the west. The neighborhood where I first skinned my knees and saw Mr. Woodward dressed in rags was right there below me. There were the downtown and the hospital where the boys were born. There was another neighborhood where we lived with their mother in our first real home. Something else I didn’t reach out to hold while it was within my reach.
Fear kept me from holding things with love.
Tears filled my eyes on the plane and I turned my head so the man sitting next to me couldn’t see. It was some sort of ascendant moment. I no longer hated the town I grew up in. I loved it for what it was and how it was there for me in all the ways I could never have recognized until now.
Scattered light filled the inside of the grey clouds as they moved over the town. Scattered light built inside of me and I looked around the plane at everyone near me. I loved them all at that moment. All of us, every week, flying on this plane to this mine site where we worked on our chosen craft to increase production and build a world-class operation. Each of them had their own struggles and sadness. I wanted to take their sadness away.
Things are strange and everything is changing.
Some readers have expressed their disappointment with the focus and attention I have given to Ripple and XRP. Manic attention to crypto it has been suggested. But what they don’t see is that the widespread adoption of XRP fits with precision into the multilateral monetary transformation I have been writing about since the birth of POM.
It’s clear to me now that researching and writing about this transformation was always about harnessing the energy and awareness of my own transformation. Which is why I have put my heart and soul into Philosophy of Metrics and the accurate analysis which it has produced. There is a pattern in each of our lives which hint about, and guide us towards, our own personal transformation. It is there for you to unearth.
It’s surreal to hear and read how Trump is undoing the world order which has built up around the international use of the USD over the last century. Here on POM we knew this is exactly what would happen back in 2015 when he announced his candidacy for President of the United States. These predictions are documented here on POM for posterity and reference.
This is honesty with humility. Humility is a life lesson which I had to learn the hard way. Now I try to be humble and honest in everything I do. Especially in the writings I produce and share with friends and thousands of anonymous readers around the world. But that’s okay. Sharing our own personal learnings and feelings could have ripple effects from individual to individual which are unfathomable.
Geopolitically, and subsequently, monetarily, the G7 is breaking apart. It is an institution which was built to protect and promote the fading USD centralized world. It may survive and adjust to the new realities such as the International Monetary Fund has done by accepting the advantages of blockchain. This is even more evident when we consider that Ripple co-founder and Executive Chairman Chris Larsen is the only crypto representative on the IMF’s FinTech development board. Trump gave the G7 the opportunity when he suggested that Russia is re-admitted into a G8 but this was brushed aside. Unlike the IMF, those drunk on power in the G7 nations will be unlikely to see the bigger picture.
The spread of the new modern nationalism we have been discussing since 2015 is now spreading even further. The liberal international order is openly destroying itself upon the blunt edge of its own politics and agenda. The world is fighting back and a new geopolitical alignment and monetary framework are forcing itself up from within the middle of the wreckage.
Word is spreading about POM and the transition we have been predicting for the last 5 years.
Everything I have been doing in my life has been building to this moment of transformation both within and without. Some have had a difficult time grasping the inward esoteric aspects of POM reconciled against the more analytical material which has focused on geopolitics and economics. But is there a difference? Both influence one another as the world stumbles forward looking for itself outside of itself.
The tone coming out of the G7 meetings this weekend is that America is done being the world's bank. This is an exact reference to the international use of the USD and the imbalanced trade deals and growing trade deficit which have accompanied it. It is being said that National Security Advisor John Bolton stated it was time to end the dollars global reserve status. This is the pivot event which will swing the world in another direction.
Nothing new for us, but its something to behold as the truth unfolds itself across multiple platforms and spheres.
Crawling my way from ignorance to understanding has taken years. Some of you have been here with me throughout these last important years, as we all gave life to POM and made it something more than I ever could have with my selfish beginnings.
Trump and Kim Jong-un are about to meet in Singapore. Who would have thought it possible? Hope should spread around the world when those hands come together. The establishment people standing against the Trump mandate are becoming ever more emotional and incoherent as one success follows another success. George Soros has even gone so far as to state that Trump will destroy the world. Once again, perspective.
One of my most popular articles was titled The Takedown of George Soros has Begun. It was reposted all over the internet leading to millions of reads and was copied verbatim by the group (s) Anonymous without even giving me credit for it. Go figure. But I don’t care.
Things are strange.
Everything is about to change. Even Switzerland is having a vote on fundamentally changing the fractional banking system. Central banks were built on this monetary slight-of-hand which funded the Industrial Revolution and has now run its course. Global liquidity needs to be sourced from elsewhere.
Even the IMF is saying that the connection between nations and money is about to end.
Maybe things aren’t as strange as we think they are though. Maybe the world has only been in a dream and we are now waking up and reflecting back on the night's events. Would that mean my life was a dream? All the tears and laughter? The split lips and cracked knuckles as I fought through the mud to reach the place which always existed within me? I fought myself and the world for nothing. For nothing.
Am I in that place now? I think I’m close. I’m less concerned with the truth coming out of my fingertips than I am with the lies I told myself for so long. The world has lied to itself. We have lied to one another.
Over the last month, I have been using Twitter and the XRPChat forum to more openly discuss these monetary changes and how it all relates to the digital asset XRP. It’s easy to do this on my phone as I spend a lot of time on planes and buses. I like to think I’m helping many others understand the full scope of what is about to happen.
These are the best of times right now. Being in service to others and working hard on many fronts is extremely fulfilling. It’s a long way from the place I was years ago when I lost myself and destroyed my family. Three young boys held their father tight as he sat crying on the edge of the bath tube. From that pain and that death came something new out of the old. Philosophy of Metrics was born years before it manifested itself on New Year's Eve of 2013. It was born in the summer of 2007 through the madness of my own doing. It was the higher me keeping a spark alive as the animal savaged itself upon the altar of wanton abandon.
It’s amazing that I could write so much when I started with so little. The transformation has begun. - JC
