As the reports continue to mount up on the number of (possible) exposures in Dallas, do take some time to study the latest data over at the www.nationaldreamcenter.com site at this link:
Dallas Fever: The Dreams Saw It
It’s an eye opener – but exactly what we have intuitive known for a very long time: The future “leaks into present” not only by shifts in language, but in preconscious states that often surface in advance of events as dreams.… >>> Read More >>>
Now we know what “the Dallas Meme” that’s been rising in our futuring work was all about, don’t we?
We don’t make many predictions around here but when we do, it may be a good idea to take them seriously. On August 29th, for example, we discussed the “Dallas Meme” as it related to terror. This morning we are looking at the first “wild” Ebola case being treated in a Dallas hospital and if that isn’t “terrifying,” I don’t know what is.
Moreover, in the August 26 discussion of “Frontiers of Futuring, the Dallas Hit” we covered the www.nationaldreamcenter.com predictive headline that forecast an event:
““Chaos ensues in Dallas in wake of …Bomb threat at Dallas/Ft Worth Interntl Airport.”
We got the right city – and the air travel link, OK…but it’s here that we come back to an old problem of futuring: We can exact some aspects of the Future, but many specifics get swamped by current contexts. In other words, language at the archetypical level is ambiguous and provides for multiple futures until that last quantum instant before realization.… >>> Read More >>>
How long have I been telling you? About five years now? This was when we looked at the 2008 housing rubble collapse and figured that there hasn’t been enough widespread pain yet to really let the air out of the bubble. The Fed just put a little tape on the balloon, congress jaw-flapped and everyone cried “It’s solved!”
Which is a crock, as the new Housing report from Case Shiller/S&P/Dow Jones out this morning is beginning to show:
New York, September 30, 2014 – Data through July 2014, released today by S&P Dow Jones Indices for its S&P/Case-Shiller1 Home Price Indices, the leading measure of U.S.

Check back at 8:20 AM Central for the latest Housing data.
A look at the calendar is all it takes to figure out what will (likely) happen today and through the balance of the week in markets:
The Dow and other indices should post small rises today as this is the end of Q3 and we usually expect to see window-dressing, which in this case may be holding us up.… >>> Read More >>>
Elaine had a call from her brother (Panama) who’s off the ranch for a little R&R in Las Vegas.
Just between us, if we had moved back to the Pacific Northwest, he’d been thinking about moving back to Las Vegas. He’d lived there for a number of years after getting out of the Army and retiring.… >>> Read More >>>
When I looked, the Dow futures were down about a hundred points. And so today we could answer that guillotine question: If 1,965 is decisively breached on the S&P do we need to start retooling our thinking toward this being The Big One…
And then…if it is….then will the S&P 1,740 level hold (no, but that’s only obvious when you look at charts that are inflation-adjusted.… >>> Read More >>>
Want a seriously odd discussion to kick-off your thinking for the week?
Well, try this one on…Life Scoring.
Whether you are a believer or atheist, makes no difference: Humans have consciousness and it’s from this that the concept of a Game with a Point arises.… >>> Read More >>>
Over the past month, we’ve been talking a lot about the “Computational Bolsheviks” who are threatening to overwhelm a hundred-fifty years of management science by short-cutting outcomes (like Business Process Re-Engineering on steroids) as well as by removing or redefining such traditional management concepts as span of control.… >>> Read More >>>
