BIG BANK STUDIES PREDICT SPACE INDUSTRY IN THE TRILLIONS, BUT…

Mr. B. spotted this intriguing article, and given yesterday's blog about mind control, its apparent growing use globally, and the "missing trillions", I had to blog about this one. The upshot is that some major bank studies by Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, and Bank of America Merrill Lynch have concluded that by 2040, the space industry will approach between one and almost three trillion dollars of market value; here's the article:

A trillion-dollar space industry will require new markets

Now, if you read through all that, you might be thinking, "Well, so what? This is more or less old news and we already knew space industry was going to be a 'big thing'. No news here."

I have to admit, that was pretty much my own reaction when I read it. So I went back and read it again, and that's when the big "but..." hit me. It was not what the article was saying, but rather, what it was either not saying, or merely alluding to. Here's the passages that leapt out at me, and which occasion our high octane speculationTM of the day:

Autry, though, cautioned not to be too specific about what markets might emerge to drive the growth of the overall space economy, recounting his experience in the early computer industry, where games played a much larger role than many initially expected.

“I think we haven’t seen yet what that app is on the NewSpace side,” he said. “I’m confident that it’s there, but I think the most important thing we need to do is not try too much to define the roadmap. There’s going to be some really unexpected detours, and it’ll be interesting to see what they are.”

So what is not being said, and what is only being alluded to? For the former, it's the markets themselves. Regular readers here have probably seen and read all those articles about the estimated worth of this or that asteroid's resources, with figures usually being placed in the quadrillions of dollars. The only problem is one has to go out and get them. But in those articles, the point is usually made that such a sudden influx of money and resources could adversely impact the world's economy; think of Spain after the discovery of the New World, with galleons bringing back boatloads of gold. The result of the influx of so much bullion drove up the prices of everything in Spain, and as a result, manufacturing fled to places with lower costs of doing business, like the Spanish Netherlands, whose economy "took off" as a direct result of the crash of Spanish manufacturing. Spain ended up losing its manufacturing base and suffering the consequences until the twentieth century.

But that, of course, was only true because there was no expansion of markets... which raises the question, why then go out and mine all those asteroids? Are all those quadrillions being collateralized to offsets all the quadrillions of derivatives on the books? I've suggested as much in other blogs. I've also suggested, along with Catherine Austin Fitts, that all that missing money might literally be going off planet, into some sort of very hidden market and trade with, or perhaps even tribute to... well, with "whomever."

In other words, the article's reference to not being "too specific about what markets might emerge" might be taken as an indicator that those "emerging markets" are not on this planet at all.

And that brings us to high octane speculation number two. The final statement of the article - "There's going to be some really unexpected detours, and it will be interesting to see what they are."(Emphasis added)  Indeed, one such "really unexpected detours" might indeed be an interplanetary "market" and "trade" with "whomever."

To put it country simple: I suspect a whole lot of discussion took place "off the record" at this conference, and that the real concerns are precisely how to deal with precisely such circumstances, and how to break "the news." Commerce, or tribute, might indeed be the agenda that drives "disclosure."

See you on the flip side...

    1. @FiatLux I’ve thought about this too. With all the hype in the media lately with SpaceForce on the US side and asteroid defense on the Russian’s, it really makes you wonder.

      IMO, the first group to achieve space dominance, and more so if they developed the tech to direct a giant space rock towards a fixed target (Earth), will have achieved the ultimate high ground.

      It really is hard to say how far along humans really are technologically. The tip of the spear in the tech world is a limited hangout surrounded by the same group of investors. One thing is for sure, certain groups have much better tech than the rest of us. Look no further than YouTube for that evidence. With over a BILLION videos and millions being posted daily, it is mathematically impossible for them to scale their storage capacity to the rate of demand. That is at least, with known tech. Hmmm.

  1. . . . There was a thought of being helpful and explaining some things from this side of the monitor about this thing called “space-weather” and much that would be required to resist its serious side effects that tends to turn one into particles, but one’s attempt soon became complicated and a bit long winded that made things lengthy, linear, and (soon) imprecise – What one often refers to as the ‘language conundrum.’ . . Luckily, one remembered your blurb about “country simple” and realized that that might have been partly done already by some others with similar interests in Astrobiology, Exobiology, Biology, Chemistry, Biophysics, Space Medicine, to name a few academic areas, who knew the need to be convincing, if not explanatory, in front of a congressional panel for justifying funding. . . Of course, those folks already adept at the topic material can extrapolate toward their preferred lengthy, linear, and imprecise tendencies for the sake of discussion or a much needed nap. . .

    . . . Mentioning earlier, in another one of your blog threads, that the body already has an immune system for dealing with potential pathogens, one realized that genetics would again be partly addressed. . . Instead of one’s jargonized commentary, decided to use this simplified version below one might appreciate if not an aficionado in the above-mentioned fields of study. . . By extending the meaning of some of the terms into modern applications one soon finds a potential link to further areas of general international commerce that benefits the species. . .

    . . . The site helps steer one into the broader areas of study, but also the attached manufacturing, research & development, financing for such adaptations or genetic modifications likely needed for deep space travel and survival. . . Some of the items referenced are already in use in a limited fashion for medical therapy and treatment of disease in their current forms as well as by the body itself. . . That site (among others)::

    This one about when space, the final frontier, was front and center at an earlier time: :

    You might have come across them already, I wouldn’t know, but thought their classroom approach useful. . .

    . . . As for the “not to specific” approach, one needs to consider innovation and idea formation, testing hypothesis, and research & development funding as they’ll be more of a pioneering endeavor and, in one’s humble opinion, should NOT be hindered by disruptive-go-no-where patenting for quick profit attempts because some greedy one got to the patent office first, filed, but didn’t think it through. . .

    That type of academia-tied-to-business is already in the way. . . One of the reasons some items, last century, were left to the military to spread the potential wealth as the military couldn’t claim patent rights to hinder needed research and development. . . And, yes, what was done was worth trillions then – easily more now, but also in need of a ‘human touch.’. .

    1. What caught my eye was the contact information:
      Deloitte – “Federal Human Capital” they don’t even try to hide it any more, humans are the commodity being traded.

  2. Given the dog and pony show that NASA god knows what our overlords have put on the auction block. Most likely slaves for whatever use the buyers what they’re just pruning the herd now to produce the perfect product for sale.

        1. Somewhat:
          https://movielogs.wordpress.com/2013/09/09/the-matrix-delusion-did-the-wachowskis-steal-their-seminal-work/

          But more importantly:
          http://mileswmathis.com/matrix2.pdf
          “But before I do, I want to conclude by telling you who I think actually wrote The Matrix. It clearly wasn’t the Wachowski brothers, since they don’t seem capable of writing a coherent grocery list. They didn’t write The Matrix any more than they wrote V for Vendetta. They look to me like fronts for Intelligence. This script was an important production of Langley… It was written by a top team, possibly the top writing committee they have.” (p.12)

          Most telling: check out the switch of Larry with ‘Lana’ via the photo on p.2 – not the same physical person. Why? I haven’t checked out photos comparing Andy with ‘Lilly’, so I don’t know if they did another physical switch with him…

          (Note that Mathis is a hard-core denier of altered states, parallel worlds, and anything not having to do with a here-and-now physical world. This slants his analysis of The Matrix as only a psy-op promoting “breakdown of reality” for nefarious purposes; which may also be true…)

      1. Bout time people started seeing those guys for the assets that they were!!! The Matrix HAD to be written by a TEAM of experts, then they hypnotically downloaded the info into the brothers via MK Ultra triggers…

        By the way, Mathis like many others makes the mistake of thinking that Parts 2 and 3 were failures. They were’nt. What happened was the brothers put a whole hour of film footage from parts 2 and 3 in the Matrix video game. And the prequel and others stories directly tied into the movies were included in the Animatrix. But the brothers failed to adequately inform the movie viewership that other pieces of the story were contained in the anime cartoons and video game…The Matrix series is the greatest cinematic storytelling creation in history…

  3. If there is a secret space program; with the technologies which have been hinted at; and even observed and denied; I would question why you would bring anything back to Earth.
    It would make much more sense to utilize it where it is being mined. Build your infrastructure and support industries in the neighborhood, so to speak.
    If you investigate the layer upon layer of shell companies owned by these people, it soon becomes obvious that they own virtually the entire earth and pretty much every company on it which would be of interest to support such an enterprise; and that they have access to pretty much all of Earth’s resources.
    The common meme in virtually every book or movie, concerning our future in space, is corporate ownership of space and all it offers; as every government on the planet is deeply indebted to those who would finance such endeavors and simply cannot afford to finance such operations. That “tribute” may indeed be going off world, just may not be going to “others”.

  4. I agree with much of goshawk’s sentiments, but I choose the term “optimization”. For example 100 years ago the educational system for the west was “optimized” to provide the greatest technological advancement curve possible–and to harness all “off the books” technologies into a black budget world for private, specialized consumption. At the same time the world’s economy was “optimized” (with far less efficiency) to provide the greatest syphoning off of the planet’s collective wealth in a long cycle while identifying the optimal size of a new technocratic/bureaucratic class to sustain their position. At some point the population itself will be “optimized” for maximal control over planetary resources, and to do this they want to use immigration to homogenize the worker class and reduce their intellectual achievements and thereby reduce their threat to the new “optimized” status quo. By immigration they not only ensure a reduction in the intellectual achievements of the global population, but they also possess the powerful, “progressive” rationale for following this trend. We’re staring a new feudalism in the face, and once in place space becomes far more relevant. Whatever’s there I suspect the “optimization” procedure itself will maintain all disclosure until the point to where all of their major goals will be institutionalized. Transhumanism is part of that “optimization” program–and until the worker class will accept augmentation and the slave system it entails via patent rights, disclosure and space will remain out of the “institutional” spotlight for as long as possible.

  5. I think the human race is being ‘boosted’ (its technology, not its consciousness). If you look at the time it took to go from horse-power to horsepower, and then from Kittyhawk to the Moon (and also from flops to teraflops), the curve has gone truly exponential. It is almost like there is some hidden objective; whether being ready to stop the next (known-by-“someone”) inbound asteroid/comet, or the lines of some interstellar conflict are getting closer (think WWII Okinawa) and the Vedic vimānas will become real again. Push, push, push. Never mind the costs; push!

    (Or, the strategy could be to tie us so much to technology that we don’t even respond to some ‘consciousness-raising’ event coming down the pike…)

  6. Unexpected detours could include tribute paid to parties “down here”. “up there” or both in the form of “favourable agreements”. On the other hand an “expected detour” will be the continued attempt at centralized control of human beings, with the excuse that it is for our own good; in my view doomed to failure because of our very nature….
