On Publishing the Physics of Value

nearly a year has passed since the physics of value page was updated to feature an open-source paper (moved to a jupyter notebook in 2019)

the paper was produced in response to a december 2014 article entitled "mathematics as a common language" where the interviewee identifies economics as missing a comprehensive "toolkit"

in leading the interviewee to the affirmative, the interviewer proposes, "building a toolkit of mathematical techniques that could be pieced together like Lego...to decipher what is happening in the world"

the interviewee then justifies his own work by explaining, "Gauge Theory dares ask the question: above what level should the rise be calculated? The level, or the derivative as it were, is made endogenous to the model"

not long after the article was read, it was shared in an email with a local systemaccounting supporter who is fond of math

in the email it was declared:

don't know what gauge theory is, but the answer to its question is "time", or more thoroughly: dO/dt=0, a null vector with an antiderivative that models the flow of money between its "Owners"

towards the conclusion of the article, the following is speculated, "Let’s imagine that what needs to happen is a renegade movement where some people understand what the problem is and start publishing models with data-typing that is more in line with reality"

there wasn't any need to imagine this movement since it was underway in 2009

to answer the fellow's call for inclusion into a model referencing data-types that describe reality, the open-source paper was published, and the following message was transmitted as an open invitation:

as of today, systemaccounting remains supported solely by its founder

economists continue to occasionally receive an invitation to offer support, but the response is the same

on monday, november 2, 2015, a well-known professor of economics who writes on "Anonymous money as a vehicle for facilitating tax evasion and illegal activity" in a recent paper was contacted by phone

upon hearing "...an initiative to petition the u.s. treasury to deploy a payment platform," the professor quickly shared he had zero curiosity, "i'm furiously busy," he said, "goodbye"

at this rate, another systemic financial event is imminent

when the touchstone for knowledge in an economy consists of academic degrees, medals, awards, publications, media exposure, fame, and whatever else has little to do with ending in physical work, a habitat is established high above in the intellectual sky with just enough distance into the horizon to breach the continuity of the public's awareness, but not far enough to justify where it leads

physical continuity, however, continues to push the public forward by applying its razor sharp edge to finely divide between us, who are in the present—from us, who are in the future

may the high places built by humans be swiftly destroyed
