the world's economies/currency markets operate as an intelligent mechanism.

i studied that mechanism that we call intelligence.

the most common thing that intelligence does is that it rejects new ideas and new information, by default.

i also studied belief systems, a primary component of the intelligence mechanism.

beliefs are thoughts that have been received multiple times as input and are processed until verified as being true or false.

belief systems dictate which thought processes will be rejected or not rejected.

this is currency trading 101.

the rules for this experiment:

1. read the three steps of the experiment only.
2. do not carry out any of the experiment's instructions.

the experiment:

1. look directly out towards the horizon, but look up about fifteen degrees above the horizon...
2. visualize a clock at that position, a standard analog clock with large hands and a second hand..
3. visualize the second hand moving steadily, beginning at the twelve and sweeping clockwise..

I don't get it... What is this experiment supposed to determine? Is this a trader psychology analogy?
LIke, don't imagine a pink elephant?

a. yes the first time I did follow the instructions, I read all three steps without carrying out any of the steps.
b. Yes I read the three steps.
c. I did not visualize a clock the first time, just simply read it.

hmmm, that is odd, i was expecting that you would visualize the clock.

oh well, no worries.

now, visualize the clock, in your mind...

watch the second hand move from the twelve to the one and then to the two and then to the three and so on...

imagine a very smooth second hand...

watch it in your mind, beginning at the twelve position.

again, thank you.

are you able to visualize a smooth and steady second hand, and for how long?
