If you've been paying attention to the space news of the past five to ten years, you'll have noticed a trend: (1) there's a lot of talk about asteroids, and (2) that talk takes two forms: (a) we've got to prepare to defend the entire planet from asteroid strikes, or (b) we can go out there and mine asteroids, because they contain gazillions of dollars worth of resources.
Well, the latter was in the news, according to this 2019 story which M.D. spotted and shared, and this one I missed a couple of years ago, and bring it to your attention now:
What interests me here is not that Psyche 16 could be a former planetary core, but its estimated value:
Our solar system is just one unthinkably massive gift that keeps on giving, right? The Sun protects our planet from interstellar plasma with its solar winds, Jupiter draws in potentially dangerous rogue asteroids, and there’s even water on Mars, which we may be able to drink one day. And while that’s all obviously awesome, we may soon be privy to a look at one of the solar system’s more tangibly valuable gifts, an asteroid made up almost entirely of metals worth, according to Bloomberg, $700 quintillion. Asterisk that value though, because we’ll mention a couple of caveats, which may or may not be the caveats you’re probably thinking of already.
If you haven’t heard of this immensely valuable massive asteroid, dubbed 16 Psyche, get ready to soon refer to it as my precious, because its highlight factoids really make it stand out as something special. With an average diameter of 140 miles—roughly the distance from Los Angeles to San Diego—16 Psyche is one of the ten most massive asteroids in the solar system, and an unbelievable 95% of that mass is made up of metals like iron and nickel, as well as, possibly, gold and platinum. As mentioned, Bloomberg has noted that the asteroid would be worth $700 quintillion if it could ever somehow be brought down to Earth, which would mean enough money to give $93 billion to every single person currently on Earth. But again, big asterisks on that number.
700 quintillion dollars?!?!?!?
That's $700,000,000,000,000,000,000. As the article notes, that's "enough money to give $93 billion to every single person currently on Earth."
Now, the reader will have noted that I've filed this blog under "Babylon's Banksters," and my reasons for doing so relate to this article, the estimated valuation of the asteroid, and the timing of the article. And brace yourself, because this is such an outlandish high octane speculation that we're in Wile E. Coyote-falling-off-the-cliff-and-plunging-into-the-gorge territory here.
Firstly, the timing of the article intrigues me, because it's just prior to the covid planscamdemic, which has certainly been used by Mr. Globaloney - think Ernst Stavro Blohschwab and "the Great Reset" and all the talk of "universal basic income" and so on. That's a lot of money. Notably, $700,000,000,000,000,000,000 is a lot more money than even all of the mere 14 to 17 quadrillions worth of bad derivatives still sloshing around in our financial "system". It's a lot more money by three orders of magnitude plus some left over "pocket change" (also in orders of magnitude). The second thing that intrigues me about these "asteroid riches" stories is the wider financial context and timing in which they've occurred: they began to intensify - "coincidentally" enough - after the financial meltdown of 2008, and have been appearing in more or less a steady trickle since then. Thirdly, they've occurred in a context where we've also learned about some very peculiar "new types" of financial instruments, little things like weather derivatives and "pandemic bonds."
(Patience, we're just outlining the walk up to the cliff; we'll take the Wile E. Coyote nosedive off of it in a moment.)
At the 2014 Secret Space Program conference in San Matteo, California, and in my book Covert Wars and Breakaway Civilizations, I speculated that part of the hidden system of finance consisted of a hidden bond market, some of whose instruments were collateralized by space assets to be recovered in the future. I've also speculated that Mr. Globaloney seemed to be in some sort of hurry to get the entire planet locked down and moved into a global, digitalized financial system.
So what if some of those collateralized "space asset bonds" are coming due? We're still not "out there" mining asteroids just yet (at least, not according to the public narrative). So perhaps we're looking at stories that are really telling us that Mr. Globaloney is "swapping the paper". (For those who know this story from my books, think of Japanese Prime Minister Tanaka and the so-called 57 bonds. And who might be holding such bonds and either demanding payment or settle for swapped paper? Well, one possibility might be Sauron, Melkor, and Morgoth and Associates, Ltd., but I digress...)
And here's the rub: we're dealing with people who've already committed massive fraud, including the pocket change of a few missing trillions of dollars from the US federal budget. They would not be above committing more fraud to sustain that system...
... and their power, like openly creating financial instruments collateralized by rich asteroids, and pretending to go out and mine them... and so much the better if one can conjure an ET threat that will require more "space defense spending" collateralized of course on space assets...
...just a thought...
See you on the flip side...
