99.8% of the world who are tested say 38 – and we’re all wrong. Where does it actually say the next number has to conform to the pattern? All that’s happening is the numbers are ascending, yet we’re all so strongly schooled we all think the same way.

And the same is true of culture. Culture is code and it’s as regulated in people’s minds as the number series. This code has structure – and as a result you can make predictions about where markets will move as clearly as you can any patterns in nature, economics or physics. The basic, non empirical version of this science is semiotics. The advanced version is called Meanomathics.
