About Mind Contagion
This site is a work in progress. It is always going to be a work in progress much like my life. I believe that no matter how many degrees or how much industry experience a person might have, it is never to late to flush it all and start over. This reinvention keeps the mind active and in that state between peace and chaos.
This site contains pages some with random thoughts and some deep exploration . If you have curiosity or are just plain bored you can explore. To make it more interesting for you I abandoned the idea of a sidebar with the topics neatly organized and easy to find. The various pages in this site are cross linked. Think of it as an exercise similar to trying to get to the truth of what the U.S. Government is really doing, finding the origins of a conspiracy theory, or understanding the Federal Reserve system. Hah, see you can start exploring right now.
Many of the topics in this site deal with money, it's history and the history of banking. I recently started to become very curious about the workings of the financial industry, the reasons for the Great Depression and why everyone seemed to get so greedy all at once. Was it something in the water? My training is in engineering, microelectronics to be more precise. I mistakenly thought that finance was something I could read up about fairly quickly. I was mistaken. Apart from that fact that most texts on economics are hopelessly negligent in writing about what is happening deep inside the financial industry, companies like the Federal Reserve make obfuscation an art form, and many economists are FED apologists or just out and out liars, I decided to pursue studying the world of finance. I finally came to the realization that it took me over six years of University and 25 years of industry experience to become an expert in my favorite field and it might take just as long for this interest. Several years into research the fog started to clear and I started to have a glimmer of understanding. I did not like the understanding I was coming to. That is when I decided to share my research with the world.
If you are wondering about the photos and images on some of the pages, most are original artwork placed there for no purpose than to offer a picture is worth a thousand words view of the text as well as for your visual enjoyment. If you find any of the images offensive, we live in a free country, you are free to be offended and to leave the site before your brain is damaged in any way.
