Tis the season...

Bookmark and Share
Tomorrow is the autumnal equinox and the official onset of the "Fall" season.

In my thesis I present compelling evidence that man as a species is literally insane, i.e., suffering from a collective form of manic-depressive creative genius....what I've dubbed the "Global Bipolar Disorder".

Man's mental and emotional instability has been developing into a full-blown psychosis in recent years such that there is the distinct possibility of a suicide attempt in the form of a nuclear third world war (as I believe I've supernaturally foreseen) at some point in the near-future. In this context, we are now entering a two week period of utmost concern. Here's specifically why I believe this to be the case.

Financial panics during the autumn are fairly common due to the seasonality of our species' repeating, severe mass mood swings. As is widely recognized, the stock market has a tendency to fall during the Fall. In fact, thirteen of the twenty worst single-day percentage drops in the DJIA occurred between late-September and early-November, i.e., 65% of the twenty largest daily drops in the stock market occurred in a time interval that constitutes less than 14% of the annual calendar:

October 9, 2008 -7.33%
February 1, 1917 -7.24%
October 27, 1997 -7.16%
October 5, 1932 -7.15%
September 17, 2001 -7.13%
September 24, 1931 -7.07%
July 20, 1933 -7.07%
September 29, 2008 -6.98%

More specifically, as discovered by market analyst Chris Carolan, the tendency is for panics to climax into around the 28th day of the 7th month on the annual lunar calendar, which is equivalent to Tishrei 26 on the lunar-based Hebrew calendar:

Note that during the autumn financial panic in 2008, when the current economic crisis kicked off, the implied volatility index, which is a gauge of overall fear on Wall Street, climaxed into the 28th day of the 7th lunar month:

This phenomenon can be more accurately ascertained by looking up the dates of key panic climaxes (including maximum DEFCON nuclear alerts in October of 1962 and 1973) using a lunar-based Hebrew calendar converter:

13 October 1857 = Panic of 1857 = 25th of Tishrei, 5618

24 September 1869 = Black Friday in 1869 = 19th of Tishrei, 5630

29 October 1929 = 1929 Stock Market Crash = 25th of Tishrei, 5690

26 October 1962 = Cuban Missile Crisis = 28th of Tishrei, 5723

Wed, 24 October 1973 = Yom Kippur Arab/Israeli War = 28th of Tishrei, 5734

Mon, 19 October 1987 = 1987 Black Monday Crash = 26th of Tishrei, 5748

Fri, 13 October 1989 = 1989 Friday the 13th Crash = 14th of Tishrei, 5750

Tue, 28 October 1997 = 1997 Asian Financial Crisis = 27th of Tishrei, 5758

Fri, 24 October 2008 = 2008 Financial Crisis = 25th of Tishrei, 5769

As can be seen above, the tendency is for mass panics to climax in the second half of Tishrei and into Tishrei 25-28 specifically. Typically the acute phase of mass panic begins after the full moon in the 7th lunar month, i.e., around Tishrei 15.

What about this year?

The full moon occurs on September 23rd and Tishrei 25-28 will take place between October 3rd and October 6th. Thus, we are now about to enter the time of year most vulnerable to mass hysterias. Notably, this full moon will coincide with an alignment of Uranus, Jupiter, the Earth, the Sun and Saturn, all squared by Pluto, with the September 22nd Autumnal equinox (keep in mind the summer "Cardinal Climax" as well):

While historically autumnal panics have taken the form of financial crises, one might note above that the October 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis and October 1973 Yom Kippur Arab-Israeli War, the two points in history when the world came closest to an all-out East-West conflict as measured by NORAD's DEFCON nuclear alert level, occurred in the context of the typical seasonal pattern for mass panics. In 1962 the highest DEFCON status was reached on October 26th, or Tishrei 28. In 1973, the highest DEFCON nuclear alert was reached on October 24th, or Tishrei 28 as well in that year. (Tishrei 28 is October 6th this year.)

Some might not see the connection between financial crises and geopolitical crises, but it is clear that one exists. Consider, for instance, how reversals from psychologically important thousand marks in the DJIA have correlated with geopolitical "shocks".

One of the most clear-cut examples of this occurred with the October 1973 Yom Kippur Arab-Israeli War when, upon retesting the "Magic 1000" mark, the DJIA turned down in connection with the outbreak of war in the Middle East. What followed was an OPEC oil embargo against the West and a severe contraction in the global economy precipitating a 40%+ decline in stock prices in the ensuing months:

On July 16th and 17th of 1990, the DJIA closed at 2999.75 two days in a row, not closing above the psychologically important 3000 mark until the following year. Just as the DJIA reached the 3000 mark, Saddam Hussein gave a speech threatening Kuwait on what was then Iraq's President Day honoring the date of the coup that brought the former Iraqi dictator to power. That weekend, Iraq started massing troops on Kuwait triggering a 5% reversal in the DJIA from the 3000 mark. Then, on August 2nd, Iraq invaded Kuwait causing the Persian Gulf Crisis, a spike in oil prices and a 20%+ drop in the DJIA by October of that year. Thus, the reversal in mass emotion associated with failing at Dow 3000 in the summer of 1990 manifested as Iraq's invasion of Kuwait and the beginning of what would be a prolonged struggle with Saddam Hussein.

In early-September of 2001, the DJIA reversed below Dow 10,000....THEN 9/11 occurred precipitating a 20% drop in the stock market:

The 'psychological barrier phenomenon' associated with thousand marks in the DJIA is profound corroborating evidence that deterministic cyclical swings in mass mood, i.e., Elliott Waves, are some sort of hidden engine behind human history:

As I've been warning in this blog since the stock market reversed in late-April, we are now likely in the midst of what I've dubbed the "Apocalypse Wave" according to the Elliott Wave Principle.

What does this mean?

Hopefully nothing.

However, a reasonable assessment of the available information is that, given man's somewhat predictable patterns of emotional and mental instability, there is the distinct possibility our species will suffer an acute mass panic, possibly involving global nuclear war, over the next couple of weeks.

I deeply pray I'm wrong, but it's fairly obvious that man as a species is literally demon-possessed, and, from what I can tell, I'm here to rid man of his demons. This is not a role I want, but clearly someone has to do it or there'd be no hope at all.

God have mercy on us all...
