Getting Ready for the Bankers’ Ball


There’s a scene in HBO’s Game of Thrones where King Robert asks his wife what’s more powerful, five or one?

She rolls her eyes and answers “five”.

He says “one”.

He holds up his five fingers then joins them together in a fist.


Five moving as one.

This is the power of what science is now exploring with quantum physics. Quantum means a number – how many working together and in what way.

While the mechanical is either on or off, the quantum can do more; a particle in one location can work with another that’s not in close proximity, communicating virtually instantly, and moving as one. They can affect each other and their environments from a distance.

Let’s look at this in the global dominance game of Coins and Crowns.

Nations and others are the players. Some powerful and some not-so-powerful.

We have lived in a mechanical world since the industrial revolution, well really since the phonetic alphabet, where the world view saw one thing bumping up against and influencing another: the linear narrative story line, mechanical cars with engines, roads that takes us from one place to another, reading and learning step-by-step.We believed that the hare won the race by steady hard work. Not so now in the electric age.

In the mechanical game, a physical army is collected and works as one unit to impact another collection of people and machinery working as a unit.

But now we are in the electric age, where there is a field that is affected all at once. Turn on a light and the whole area can be viewed at once. Not a force of one-to-many but of many-to-many all at once. Things are learned by creating an infrastructure, and then ‘boom’, there’s insight all at once. It’s alchemical in that a few components are added together in a certain way and it’s suddenly changed into something that isn’t a combination of the parts. It’s something different.

How does this affect the monetary world?

How does this affect world governing?

The game of Coins and Crowns is made of players. Before World War II the players were all nations. Now some are corporations, NGOs, and some are extra-territorial players whose finances and technologies are on par or more advanced than nations. They are all the players.

Each player has components that give them their power and resources.

That’s us.

We create goods and services which are bought and sold at a profit, and hopefully create a surplus which is used to make machines and systems to dominate other players.

The winner of a move dominates and either extracts a skimming payment from the little player, or takes them right over.

If we, the components, are well taken care of we run better. If we’re poorly managed then there’s lean times and we’re taxed hard. If we’re taxed too hard there’s a revolt and we don’t run at all.

We are also the components that run the war machines – for now. (The players are quickly moving into new tech which will have mechanical “us”es that run without needing food, water or bathroom breaks.)

The more we produce the more they can skim off our totals, and the more power they get. Or if we’re poorly managed, the more we are individually taxed as they try to maintain power. It’s only a short term win if they play that strategy.

Since the end of the last century, time was added to the game. Debt and financial derivatives were created to make more power now with a future payment. The more they borrow the more they can build infrastructure, so we run more efficiently, or else buy machines for war. The more we borrow the more they can skim off of what we borrow.

When a player overburdens its components then those little insignificant parts get angry and desperate enough to combine forces and change from five-to-one.

Or from four million-to-one.

The components when combined are powerful enough to overtake the player itself.

The components used to have pitchforks and farming neighbours. They used to communicate through underground channels with books, printed leaflets, songs, and any form of grass roots empathy and emotional cultural support.

When the unit is threatened and fearful it consolidates.

When printing press technology was developed, a player, the church in this case, quickly took over the technology in order to have control over what was being said and who could read it and be persuaded. They printed both Protestant and Catholic literature to have a hand in it all at the time.

The players don’t want the components to work as a group.

The players can try to financially suppress the many to keep them apart. The player can try to trick the components into thinking they are well off (with virtual wealth media images) and what they personally experience is isolated and their own fault. (That’s a big one being used right now.) They can try to mix in other components who think differently or have different cultures and goals, which dilutes the cultural ‘one’.

But eventually, as the taxing, fleecing and tricking goes on, the kind components have enough, and they start to communicate with like-minded.

And protest.

The difference now in the electric age is that the components don’t need to be in close proximity to communicate. They can plan and protest over geographical distances.

They can combine financial resources electronically, using cryptocurrencies, to transfer funds around the world and support a combined force.

Not just four million-to-one.

Forty million-to-one.

And not just one player’s components with each other, but components of many different players, who are communicating and seeing that the whole game itself is rigged against them.

The yellow vest protest in France is such an event. It’s a tiny peek into the individual desperation that’s consolidating into “one”. Little lifts in the taxes and tiny concessions won’t cut it anymore.

The game is getting ready for a reset.

This game is almost over.

The players are positioning for final moves. That’s the dangerous time. Pleasant faces change. Knives held behind the backs move suddenly to someone else’s back instead. New technologies are employed secretly then finally openly.

Bankers, individual bankers anyways, look like they will win this round.

The players themselves are all desperately consolidating themselves into “one” as the global components are combining into a global extra-national one.

The players, anyone with power in the current system, are the elite.

They know there’s a reset coming so they’ve been fleecing and skimming at a more and more outrageous level before the lights go out and everyone leaves the building.

Where are they going when the game is over?

The players, old and new, will get together and make new rules for the next round. They’ll put their chips on the table and negotiate. They’ll use gold, the oldest money and the only one they all trust.

Gold will be among the assets they negotiate with. That’s why the smaller players are all buying it now. They know a reset is coming.

The game is almost over.

Anger goes up and the leaders go down.

The bankers are players but they’re not the nations. Us components have leaders who run the nations.

The bankers are planning to have a party when the game resets. A figurative party to celebrate their victories.

Its very sad. For us. But at least the fiat system game will then be over, and hopefully we all set up the new game where there isn’t a boot on our faces forever.

The elites have a short time to take control of this era’s printing press.

The players are making and destroying alliances. Lots of ‘many’s trying to become a ‘one’ and win.

The rulers of the shipping lanes controlled the last empire. The rulers of the skies control this one. The rulers of space, G5 and robotics will probably control the next.

That’s why Vice President Mike Pence said the US will not let China win control of G5 or robotics.

This game of Coins and Crowns is coming to an end.

There’s too much debt in the system to ever be repaid. Confidence can shift quickly.

The taxes on the little components will be raised by each player as they try to gain the best position in the coming final showdown.

The game will hopefully not, but probably move from financial to kinetic. Hopefully not, but probably, unless one player has enough financial power to overtake the whole board without mechanical force – a checkmate. Or else a master negotiator can make a deal with all the players in a way that benefits everyone, including the components too. A tough one.

Maybe space expansion can be done in a way that makes the pie bigger for everyone.

This fiat currency/ central bank/debt model game is coming to an end though.

There will be a financial reset.

Some will win while some fall.

I’m writing and recording a song on it now.

I call this time right now …. getting ready for the Bankers’ Ball.

Excerpt from the soon-to-be-released single:


The Bankers Ball

Searing towns torched in flame
Model wings crashing down in pain
Hidden hands fan the breeze
with no glue left to bond or breathe

Can the keepers of keys lock the hordes (hoards) at home?
Pitchforks and peasants gnawing on bones
Crusts and clowns for the paupers they said
Speaking of tipping and losing one’s head

Children lined up facing the wall
Vested interest a shame for us all
The circle, the cycle, the backyard swing
While the media decorate the hall
getting ready for the bankers ball

The swing of the pendulum is real in both small things and grand things. That’s why we talk about preparing for the fall, winter, and brilliant spring that always follows.

All is well. ;)

A Terrible Breeze    (The Nuclear War Threats)

The news comes down
A little bluebird sings
Words of war
Fire and furious things
Of testing might
’til no patience knows
if keeping still
still keeps you safe at home

It’s a terrible breeze
They speak of today
Of threats that used to live a world away
We all know wind
can blow both ways
And a terrible breeze can blow it all away

A worldwide net
sees our village grow
until we all forget
what each one used to know
How a blind bird’s wings
Can reach the shore
And turn that wheel of peace and war

Village fools sinking down, down, down
Debt and gold wound in numbered shrouds
Deal of a life, there’s bread and clowns
Can we afford another go around?
The news comes down.

It’s a terrible breeze. The news comes down.

No one wants to turn that wheel of peace and war.

Not Much of a Holiday (Greek Debt and Media Persuasion)

words and music Elaine Diane Taylor

© 2015 Intelligentsia Media, Inc. All rights reserved.


Single available on iTunes

The Greek bank holiday and long lines to get a few euros each day. Debt deals behind closed doors. The media telling us what opinions to have. China building islands in the South China Sea and claiming all the international waves. More dealing to come.

Standing in line for those who owe. Who owes?

There’s a long line of nations in debt and this is far from done.



Preparing for the Fall is a live boutique album available on iTunes — featuring Wag the Dog, Black Swan Dive,  American Pie and Gods of the Copybook Headings.



The Gods of the Copybook Headings

words by Rudyard Kipling | music by Elaine Diane Taylor

©2014 Intelligentsia Media Inc.


from the album Preparing for the Fall available on iTunes


The copybooks of the early 1900s gave us all the wisdom we need. The sayings that were copied are the truths, the gods, of our world. All the empires who followed the gods of the marketplace instead have fallen, and there’s terror and slaughter when the gods of the copybook headings return. The lyrics are by Rudyard Kipling. One of my gurus.

Another Week on Wall Street

words and music Elaine Diane Taylor

from the album Coins and Crowns available on iTunes

See the bankers wave their Wall Street wands and conjure piles of paper green. Naked short selling is like betting that your neighbour’s house will burn down. But in this scenario the building happens to burn down. If the bankers win then we lose the whole world as we know it. I wrote this in 2009, with a lyric “A little grease (Greece) is floating out to sea, and little pigs (Portugal, Italy, Greece and Spain) are bobbing up and down, they’ll send a storm and we’ll see, when the tide goes out who’s naked on the beach“, and it’s coming on now. The world is changing as we know it.
