There are three ways to bake a cake.
From scratch, which takes a while, but gives you maximum flexibility.
From a box of cake mix, which is much quicker, much cheaper but comes with the cost of not really knowing, for sure, what the ingredients are.
One phrase that has kind of shifted in that last couple decades is the term black market.
This used to describe the buying and selling of clearly illegal things.
Now this term has been replaced by a much friendlier sounding shadow economy.
And in our current economy, there are shadow economies going on at every level.
From the top, within the shadow banking system that nobody really understands, to people doing gig jobs for cash, so they can keep them off the books.
Remote Thought Measuring
The CIA has long been studying ways to correlate various brainwaves to thoughts for a long time.
This is something they’ve copied from the advertising industry, which intended to implant buying desire into people’s brains remotely.
I have this super gorgeous neighbor who is a clinical psychologist.
She’s in her mid to late thirties, I’d guess, and when she graduated from high school she decided to become a stripper.
And after a few years, she found that most of her clients would come see her not for sex or even sexual type behaviors, but to talk to her about problems they didn’t think they could talk to anybody else about.
So she slowly put herself through school, imagining that being a therapist would be a much more respectable job.
But she says it’s much, much more boring that being a stripper.
For one, most of her patients don’t really want to be cured.
They either want drugs or they want validation that it’s not really their fault their lives are a trainwreck.
I’m Sorry…. What?
But she says the worst part is that most of her patients are really boring, and she has the suspicion the main reason they come see her is nobody else would talk to them and listen to them complain for an hour.
Of course, it’s only a matter of time to see where this is going.
Eventually, they’ll develop powerful enough equipment to accurately and remotely measure brainwaves.
Then they can correlate these brainwaves to ideas, and then full sentences, and then full conversations.
Which means eventually, within the next 50 to 100 years, they’ll be able to monitor your thoughts, conversations, and dreams from orbit.
And vaporize you if the wrong ideas slip into your mind.
They say the shadow banking system is a result of the chaotic and potentially misguided response to the panic of ’08.
Shadows of Shadows
Not only do we have shadow banking systems, and shadow economies, but we also have dark money flows and shadow governments.
Of course, you could find a bakery that uses all natural ingredients, and could theoretically create a cake to your exact specifications.
But that would eliminate any spontaneous cake eating desires that may randomly pop up, from time to time.
Which is precisely why people keep healthy cake baking ingredients handy for this very occasion.
