Cross-path of the delusional

In this case it is me. In this case it is my thoughts on what I am enabling and that is close to bringing me tears of joy. What my mind was seeing was the spreading of my IP. Yes, that is delusional, because the buyers have not decided yet, but in my mind I saw the systems come online, my mind was filling in the blanks and so far the idea seems flawless, which is also a delusional path. No solution is ever flawless so doubt takes over and I revisit all the parts that I designed, from the streaming solution to the 5G hardware and its connectors. I want to make sure that it works as it should be and I went over it ten times over without finding the flaw. This is also delusional. The fact that I cannot see it does not mean that they aren’t there, but it seems to me that there are no massive or obvious flaws. So if the KSA buys the first part, they will be the only player in line to buy the second part. I did say ‘close to’ because doubt will remain. Did I miss something, was there a corner I overlooked? It is the only issue with proofreading, there should be a second person but I trust no one else. Not some wannabe person claiming to be one thing and picking up the phone to Microsoft (or Telstra) a second later. I believe it is time for them to feel the damage that the people hired under the guise of ‘fake it till you make it’ brings. The 50M subscriptions is one part, but the 5G, that will change the stage for too many people a lot, not at first but once it start I truly believe that it will not stop. And there is still the Augmented reality part. I am till trying to decide the data model of that one because no normal data model will hold (no matter what some claim). So that part takes a little more work, but over a period of 2.5 years the model was designed in my mind, iteration after iteration until it became an innovation from scratch. 

I was able to reset the timer for the 4Chan part and now I stop adjusting it. If no one buys it, it will all become public domain on December 31st, my gift to 2023. I feel I am done now. I did what I could and now it is time to look at the crossroad. I need to decide where to go next, but I cannot make up my mind. I can try to create more tech solutions and perhaps a thought will come to mind, but I doubt it, 4 devices, one streaming system in three parts, scripts, and the augmented reality solution. I should look at another video of the Eaton Centre mall, perhaps that will give me more ideas. I did come up with another idea, but it is based on the Dutch Artotheek solution. You see, we might want to see artwork, but what happens when we have hi-res frames in the house and that (as well as your TV) become the fame of art to show when you are not watching TV, during the day and the frames will be connected to an art centre. You become the renter of a digital version of one of their works, maintained like an Apple music, or an Amazon rental. With a limit per artwork (for example 20), so only 20 get to rent that art for $0.99 or €0.99 per week. And you can change the art once a month (for a little extra once a week). A setting that could interest thousands of houses per city, optionally millions of households per nation. Interesting that there is not such a system at present (not as far as I could see). 

Th screens are also interesting. There is a SHUSH30 900mm Screens (900x1800x30) for $237, Eooke also has solution in the 4K 50” setting (for $1499), but that means that cheaper solutions are merely around the corner and for a lot of people the TV might suffice (if that TV is capable). 

All solutions that are out there, like a few other solutions I made public domain, all options that places like Google and Amazon basically ignored (for whatever reason). Yes, Google has an excuse for the streaming solution, but would you ignore (or dump) what you have with the prospect of $500M a month? I would not (I also cannot afford to do that). 

In light of what is out there, in light of the cost of living, can we afford to have it all? Consider that and also consider that this opens up a sales branch for aspiring artists. There are so many ideas out there and will they all work? No, of course not, but the issue remains that what does not work in location A, might have a real chance in location B, it is the option of global thinking that opens up markets and opens up ideas to the larger public. I tried to do that to the largest extent and I reckon that I miss 7 out of 10 times, but those three will be so worth it, it will make up for all the other things. They say that the crossroads of the delusional mind can go to the rational, the looney tunes dirt road, the path of the dreamer and the road of the ruthless. Is it true? I cannot tell, those who are at crossroads seldom can, but I do feel that I am not looney tunes or ruthless. So what am I merely a dreamer, or a person trying to make rational sense of what he has? I believe that is me, not because I want it to be, but because I measure and retest again and again. None of the other paths lead to seeking verification, but that could be me. 

Anyway, if other nations have an ‘Artotheek’ department they might want to look into this. And that is before we consider the thousands of artwork that are too old to have IP protection. And with that I opened the door for some.

The opportune moment of my IP

There was a side I never, or almost never talked about, merely because it was interacting with other options and therefor it had a slippery side of becoming unpredictable. The second wave of my first IP bundle had an evolutionary stage that went straight into the Metaverse. Now I see that Saudi Arabia (at https://www.middleeasteye.net/news/saudi-arabia-neom-invests-1bn-metaverse) as I see it the Middle East Eye reports ‘Saudi Arabia’s Neom invests $1bn in metaverse’, it could cover my IP as well, so as we see “The company has invested $1bn in 2022 in AI projects that include a metaverse platform, in the hope that it will advance Tonomus’ goal of positioning Neom as the world’s first “cognitive community”” add my monthly $500M solution to that and it becomes a much larger powerhouse and it goes a lot further than making the UAE jealous. The IP as offered to the Saudi Consulate (in Sydney) gives rise to much more than I expected, if these two are united (something I hoped to do in 2024)  this goes a lot further than even I expected in the term I expected things to go and it goes beyond AI or mere Saudi interests. This impacts several nations all with access, making Neom an instant power hub for technology and streaming.  Although originally not part of their design Tonomus would have the ability to be well over 100% more powerful within 2 years. So even as we see “Dubai announced a metaverse plan in July that aims to deliver 40,000 new jobs and $4bn to the city’s economy in five years.” I saw another path that they were not looking at and now Saudi Arabia has the setting for $6,000,000,000 annual within 5 years and a lot of jobs, not that many, but their setting it total, my setting is annual, as such I win, or actually the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia wins if my structure is accepted into the whole frame and that number is merely on my side of the equation, their side could spell it to be a lot more for a lot longer because my scope enhances their scope, something I never banked on because it was not part of my design, and there is a secondary part to that too, you see the Metaverse was an optional enhancement to my IP, so there are waves upon waves (as I see it) and that means that the old approach is next to the new approach and I have to giggle to myself, when I see the utter stupidity of Optus, whilst seeing my own innovation, a side that neither Amazon nor google saw, or saw coming enhances my IP even more and should the KSA buy it, the nextgen powerhouses of IT will no longer be in the US, or EU. They will be in the Middle East because it is not merely what Saudi Arabia, or the UAE does. It is what they can achieve together, a side I never considered and I feel decently certain that none of the other players had considered that either.

The new student

There is a class, this class is out there and it has many students. Yet its teacher had never expected that the BBC would be joining his class and this teacher is beside himself. The teacher is Mediocrates and his Syllabus called ‘Thats good enough’ has been handed from student to student for generations. Yet until today this teacher had never considered that the BBC would be joining him, and he is happy, he is very very happy.

This all started some time ago, yet for me to see another MBS bashing exercise is just too much, especially when it comes from the BBC. The article (at https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-62940906) gives us ‘Mohammed Bin Salman: Saudi prince’s controversial invitation to the Queen’s funeral’. In the first Why controversial? He is the de facto ruler of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. So far not a biggie, but then we get “A declassified CIA report concluded that the crown prince had authorised the murder and dismemberment of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi inside the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul in 2018

So lets make a little list

  1. The CIA report did not do that, it stated that it was highly likely, which is not the same. By the way this is the same organisation that send former secretary of state Colin Powell with a shining silver suitcase to places like a rockstar with the evidence that Iraq had WMD’s. So how many were found in the end? Not any did they? At that presentation they had graphics, now they have less than nothing. The rule of law states that a person is innocent until PROVEN guilty and the prove is missing on many levels. Even the hack job that the UN report represents never properly analysed the recordings, it gets worse that there is no one had ACTUALLY heard the entire recording and that is on Turkey. Then we get the ‘dismemberment’ part, there was no evidence of any kind that this had happened, merely the figment of some limelight seeking individual, and no evidence is showing that this ever happened.
    We now have all kinds of rumours. One is of him and a 20 year old mistress going to Tahiti. I doubt that there is anyone believing that story, but you can find creative yo-yo’s on any street-corner. 

REALITY CHECK

  1. Did something happen to JK? I speculate that this is the case and there is nothing to support that he had any other plans then to go back to his fiancee.
  2. Can we prove that something happened? No, there are strong indications, but no evidence. And in this Turkey, the tool of Iran played a very dangerous game. It is my belief they never had anything, but Turkey wanted to please Iran and the lack of forensic evidence on the tapes as well as the fact that those tapes were never fully revealed plays towards my view on the matter. Is it not interesting that the Washington Post never demanded their release? It made all kinds of other claims, claims that lack evidence, but the release of those tapes were demanded, the same could be said for the United Nations who had their tools attack the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, but presented no evidence that actually holds water.

Then we get “The pressure group Campaign Against the Arms Trade (CAAT) has accused Saudi Arabia and other Gulf monarchies of using the Queen’s funeral as a way to – in their words – “whitewash” their human rights records.” Here we have a different situation. The CAAT (or the group of tea grannies holding a banner) as I would see it have been clear about accusing the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, but they never made clear loud mentions of Houthi terrorists and Iran arms supplies, did they? Here the western media has gone out of its way to keep silent regarding the actions of Iran (like drone attacks on civilian targets in southern Saudi Arabia). They gave no visibility to the presentations of Colonel Turki bin Saleh Al-Maliki who on more than one occasion gave the media the clear evidence of Iranian drones. Yet the WSJ had no problems showing the application of “Iranian Kamikaze Drones Creates New Dangers for Ukrainian Troops”, why is that? Do the stake holders and share holders like the Ukrainian side of the matter? The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has been forced to fight with one hand on its back against Houthi terrorists for too long. Yet the people and the media had no issue sending Boris Johnson to Riyadh talking about cheap oil. So why would they do that? It is my personal belief that the media has done everything it could to prolong this war. An event that started 8 years ago almost to the day and could have been resolved 5 years ago, but that did not fit with the needs of stakeholders hoping to get some cash out of Iran (a speculative view) and that is not all, the captured smuggling shipments from Iran did not make the news either, so what gives?

Finally there is a stage that most ignore. These acts ‘supporting’ Iran will have a much higher cost soon enough, when that happens will the media make a true call to action and a call to answer from media stakeholders or will they silent and mute like with Martin Bashir? 

The largest folly is the Aramco attacks on 14 September 2019. It is impossible for Houthi forces to have done that, yet everyone was so eager to accept that it was a Houthi attack. To give an example. I am a goalie (ice-hockey) and I would love to be the Goalie for the Toronto Maple Leafs, but I lack the skills to be THAT good a goalie, as such Kyle Dubas (aka the Elvis Costello of the NHL), the general manager of the Maple Leafs will never put me on that spot, I am not god enough. It hurts, but that is fair. That lack of skill is essential. There is NOT ONE Houthi operative that has that skill level. The news gave us that 25 drones and missiles were used. So we either have an amateur rifleman how shoots near perfect bulls-eyes 25 times in a row, or Houthi forced found 25 operatives all getting near perfect hits in place. Such statistics are a fable, yet the media just swallowed the story and there is the problem, the media can no longer be trusted and now we see the BBC signing up for classes by Mediocrates.

There is a lot more but why bother, I reckon that certain people will not care. 

So when we see “All of which partly explain why international criticism of the crown prince is muted at most”, I merely respond

Frank Gardner, you idiot. How much visibility have YOU given to the Iranian part of that equation? How much evidence did you test and read? Or was this just a hatchet paint-job so that the CAAT gets one more mention?

Is Saudi Arabia a perfect nation? I doubt it and it would be for Muslims to give voice to that, I am not Muslim and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is a Muslim monarchy. I reckon from my side, the most perfect nation in the world is likely to be New Zealand and Canada is in that top 5 as well. Two Commonwealth nations and they got their with the guidance of Queen Elisabeth 2. It will not have been directly, but she was a guiding force. The rest have a lot to answer for and this BBC article shows us that the UK has its own media skeletons all over its bloody field. 

This might be a decently valid article and their might be some concerns regarding the presence of some people according to others, but her Majesty kept global peace (for the most) for over 70 years. I think we can all shut the hell up and let the international dignitaries pay their last respect.

Did I oversimplify the matter?

Aggregating in perpetuity

The mind at times makes a halt. I alerts its owner and gives him hell. This actually happened to me in the last two hours. You might have seen me going on on how some players were not paying attention. Over the last 24 hours I have ben watching this venue again, and my brain stopped me and went “Are you perfectly lame, dopey!” OK, I admit he used moron and a few other names (dopey is me going soft on me). 

You see, there is no chance in hell that this is the only thing they are missing. As such it was not merely me, they aren’t seeing a lot more, but what are they not seeing? We could consider where Google is looking at (nest solutions), we could watch where Amazon is focussing (Amazon shops) and we could offer that Apple is the new player, it is not. It merely looks where Apple is going, which makes sense to some degree. As such these players (as well as Facebook, Microsoft, SAP and a few other players) they are in some weird setting of returning to pre covid settings and as far as I can tell, they are missing a lot left, right and centre. 

So my mind gave a holler and went on a ‘Watch This!’ tour. That is where I have been the last to hours and suddenly the Middle East links make sense. Governments like the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and a few others are now optionally in the market to extent where THEY can be, that was what my mind worked out in these news clippings in the last 24 hours. It also looked at the UAE and the interests of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum. Now, be aware this is not a player to be taken lightly. He and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman Al Saud are no light players and they do not suffer fools, neither do the people in their inner circle. Yet if you make a good case, if you can support YOUR case with data and with facts, you could make a killing. These two players will pay for good ideas, so you are unlikely to get movement with the idea for a new potato peeler, but a setting to enhanced 5G applications and technology solutions that players like Google and Amazon might want, could find equal if not more eager potential in players like these two. Google and Amazon have gotten so used to people coming their way, the fact that these ideas go somewhere else could pay off, in my line it could mean a direct increase of $3,750,000 right off the bat, that more EACH MONTH by selecting another player that can afford your idea. I would like to add a word of caution. With these people you get one shot, thats it. Fumble then and you end with zilch, just a warning and it is up to you to adhere (or not) to those words of warning. I made my first move towards the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the UAE is in Melbourne, not in Sydney. So that idea is out, but where you are, the setting might be slightly different. And face it, there is no statistical chance in hell that the players we used to rely on ONLY missed where I was and what I found. So what else are they not seeing? That is your optional ticket to a new (less burdened) life. If it works you are welcome and you can buy  me a cold beer if you ever get the chance. Up to you, the information is given freely. And they are not the only ones. There is a top ten of Middle Eastern people who are multi billionaires and they are ALWAYS looking for the next pay off, so you might be barking up the wrong tree, you merely need to show and present a larger case and I gave you a few names yesterday. So go and see what you can make of tomorrow. My solution has three arms and an optional stage that goes beyond 50 million subscriptions. Can you equal it? I am not challenging you, I am asking you. You see there is Software as a service (SaaS), gaming as a service (GaaS), cybersecurity as a service (CSaaS), there is FinTech and a few other means and far as I can tell, players like Amazon, Apple, Dell, Facebook, Google, Microsoft, Netflix, SAP, and several other players are staring in the wide space and missing more and more niches and even more opportunities. A stage that is profitable for you. OK, I will admit that Facebook has an optional excuse, but when does company go soft on itself when $500,000,000 a month passes them by? You tell me, I have actually no idea. So what else are they not noticing and that might be the spark YOU need to make YOUR case and I am welcoming you to make these large blind players suffer a little more. And this is all before you realise that a few more players could be found in Canada, United Kingdom, Germany, China, India  and France. All players that would like a larger slice of whatever the tech players have and that was before the united onesies like Elon Musk come calling. It seems that there are a few more options for all of us, we used to rely on big-tech, but it seems to me that big-tech is broken. In named 8 players and you tell me who would openly ignore $500 million a month. We are looking in the wrong direction for our salvation and it is time we adjusted our views. I personally believe that Microsoft is lost, but the other 7 are in some unintended waiting area, now we can wait until they wake up, or we can offer it to other players and watch the panic when these 8 players suddenly realise that there are players NOW right behind them. I reckon that we can get a really good deal. Consider Netflix and see what happens when a player like CarryMinati extends its YouTube connection by adding whatever you have and adding 10-20 million connections. Google (YouTube) panicked too late when. TikTok came and now there I a contended first player. So what happens when half a dozen players suddenly become contenders in a field they were merely a top tier player? And they all have billionaires behind them hoping and seeking for more and we forgot about that part, at least I did, did you? So when my brain mentally bashed me and called me all things I prefer not to repeat here. My brain opened a door to other players. I was partially on board, but that was due to more factors, but now the playing field is wide open and players like Amazon and Google are now in the lower 5 choices. There are more than 5 more hungry for profit and there is the added profit, they are willing to concede to more whilst they grow their empire and you get a little larger slice, in my case that could amount to $45 million a year more, I’d buy that for a dollar (sorry, Robocop). So how much more could you make? And more important when the US sees that brain drain how large are the waves of panic that come then? 

I will let you work that out for your solution. For me? I am just fine at present, I merely need to wait (something I was never very good at).

Have a great Thursday!

Oh my…. What on earth?

It was my usual moment of scanning the news and suddenly within a minute three articles from very different areas came up, one in Arab News that gave the impression that my IP is more than on time, more than in the moment. Three acts give rise to a much larger setting that timing was a much larger setting than anything I could have planned for. Now the question becomes was the Saudi Arabian Consulate in Sydney aware? Do they even know? Lets be clear here, not everything is about me, not everything is about my IP, but the circumstances are weird, even by my standards. I just hope that I get my moment to speak quite soon, as it seems that the interactions by the media regulator of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, which they call Mawthooq is now a larger play and here I am with a solution that addresses the approach to 50 million people in all kinds of ways, a lot more if I am right. So was it merely timing, or am I merely a pawn in the middle of a lot of events? I have no idea, but to see this evolve 10 days AFTER I visited the Saudi Consulate in Sydney is strangely unsettling to say the least. 

I hope to report a lot more soon enough (regarding my IP I mean).

Timing is key

That is the truth of the matter, and in my case it is not precisely timing, even as timing cmes up. In my case it is pure luck. So as we see (at https://english.aawsat.com/home/article/3862066/saudi-arabia-unveils-10-initiatives-develop-online-stores) ‘Saudi Arabia Unveils 10 Initiatives to Develop Online Stores’ I set my plan in motion as well, actually, I set my plan in motion three days earlier. At some point in the past I stated “I would rather hand my IP to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for 35% of its value, then let Microsoft have it at 165% of its value” and I made other claims (at https://lawlordtobe.com/2022/09/01/resetting-contemplated-options/) just over a week ago in ‘Resetting contemplated options’. There I wrote “You see, for me it cares as part of the deal is that I get 10% of the IP and sales value (plus a starting fee). 10% of 50,000,000 subscriptions could be anything from $25M to $50M and when this takes off, I have no idea where it will end, but even at a mere 1-2 years I could end with $25M to $50M a month in the second year if its running” and I put my actions where my mouth was and as such the first part was handed to the Consulate of Saudi Arabia in Sydney. A stage where Amazon or Google could have made a killing three times over, it is not in hands of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia with that a stage where they could make well over $500 million a month. Amazon and Google were seemingly not interested, or perhaps they hoped to get it all for free. Now it becomes a much larger stage with a few nice additions and it could make Saudi Arabia a new player in the IT field, optionally a power player, but that would take a few years. One could say that it as all about the timing, but in my case pure dumb luck might have played its cards too. I have hd my fill with wannabe managers stating to me “We’ll do right by you”, now they end up with nothing and when (not if) my IP works out, they will come with all the excuses they can grab for, but in the end as the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia surpasses them, they will have no excuses. It will show them that they were never good enough and that is possibly the best reward of all for me. Moreover, when the stage picks up, they will surpass the total sales of the Xbox One, so it is perfect on several levels. Even as that was not the intent (it was not part of the equation) in the first two years my solution will surpass Microsoft and their boast of the most powerful console in the world. I cannot tell how high it will go, but the 50 million subscriptions is the minimum I had foreseen and when these projects come to fruition I will tell you exactly what I had done and how Microsoft, Google and Amazon failed to see what was in front of their eyes all along. I feel weirdly giggle and happy. Those who claimed that I would not make it will now see that I will end up ahead of the game, ahead of the rest. But I need to be cautious here, as Saudi Arabia has not stated that they are ready for a fight like this, so I need to be patient (something I was never good at). And in all this, I am ready for what comes next, because I have now completed phases two, three and four of that solution, it was always going to happen, but the speed at what is now at play is a new consideration. It is a new consideration as I have to cross my t’s and dot my i’s. So as the KSA is staging to “develop the sector of electronic stores, based on the results of a survey that measured consumer satisfaction with the performance of e-commerce in the Kingdom” I added a much larger stage that will open digital sales and digital awareness to a much larger group than the Saudi Ministry of Commerce had envisioned, as such it will not happen immediately, but over the next 2 years that stage will explode international needs for the KSA and that is also an interesting side. I had never played for that stage, but it merely cropped up and now that it is here, I will need to reset views and test the stage towards what the Saudi Ministry of Commerce has in mind. And all this was not timing (perhaps for the KSA it was) in my case it was as stated pure luck and that counts too. For me it counts as it ups the value of my IP by a lot, or at least decently more than I had envisioned and that is under the condition of 50 million subscriptions, if that goes up by too much more this early, I have no idea where my IP ends or more precisely at what value. I do believe that timing is at times important, I merely never thought I was going to get this lucky, not after the five years I had. For now it does not suck to be me. Oh joy!

The opposite point of view?

That was the setting I looked t when I saw the article in the New Arab (at https://english.alaraby.co.uk/analysis/saudi-arabias-line-neom-project-too-ambitious) where we see ‘Is Saudi Arabia’s ‘The Line’ NEOM project too ambitious?’ The title gives us a handle and my first question is should that not be the case? Now we take the Empire State Building for granted, but in 1930, people thought the same regarding the Empire State Building. Things need to be too ambitious. The entire setting of Neom and the Line is too ambitious, because this has NEVER been done before. And even if people write it into the ground calling it a ‘gazillion dollar project’ the truth is that they are writing fear, because I personally guarantee you that they would not write that if it was a US project. Two architectural projects and both as in Saudi Arabia. But back to the article. We then get ““In the aftermath of the pandemic, economic rehabilitation is at the forefront of all countries’ political agendas. This is why Saudi Arabia will have no issues in filling any labour gaps with regards to construction and investments in the project itself,” Siddiqa explained.” This is a fair point and every nations has this hurdle, as such I do not see a real problem, a hurdle, not an obstacle. Again a fair point is seen with “NEOM is not without its challenges, some of which Riyadh has addressed and others which remain an obstacle. Financial challenges are the biggest obstacle for mega projects like NEOM and The Line. Research shows that Saudi Arabia has not been able to achieve much success in attracting financial resources and investment from foreign governments and companies.”, what I would like to add is that these companies were eager to invest when oil was their fortune, but investing in something that they at present do not understand is somewhat understandable, greed needs assurances and they have an image (of greed) to uphold. Then the article throws a reality our way. With “While the initial plan was to complete NEOM by 2030 with an allotted $500 billion, some reports claim that the city may not be completed until 2050, which will likely increase costs significantly. For this reason, it is predicted that the entire project, including The Line, will cost the Kingdom $1 trillion.” And here we see the first larger hurdle. With ‘the city may not be completed until 2050’ which is true, but now we also see the essential need to hold onto the larger need for perfection and precision. Any party that cuts corners will become the foundation of failure for the entire project and even if only one phase is ready in 2030, the KSA will show to be a global game changer. And lets fave it, on this day and age that delay is not the biggest one. The line is a city for 9 million people. Rome was not build in a day and that is a fair notion to take. If it helps, I reckon that my IP for Augmented Reality could optionally make an optional larger difference there. But the larger truth is that the Empire State Building took a year to make, the Line is over 200 times larger and as such getting it all ready by 2050 is still an amazing feat, more important it is a building no one else has been able to build as well as a first building to allow nature to restore. That setting is a larger achievement. More important I reckon that the side development in material waste and sewage will have larger repercussions for the internal development of any city and such part have never been this centralised before. A place where pollution stops. Consider London where we would suddenly halt ALL car traffic for a week. The impact of cleaner air would be seeable and sense by all, a city 50% smaller and it has that impact, so what spin will the KSA receive when others offer their version of complexities? Then we are given a part that I found debatable. It is “The financial viability of PIF is highly dependent on the Kingdom’s oil exports, a market that has proven volatile in recent years. In 2020, Riyadh faced a significant fiscal deficit of more than $79 billion. In a country where around 60% of its financial resources came from oil and just 9% from non-oil exports in 2021, the financing of the NEOM project is likely to face financial ups and downs.” So, yes we get ‘In 2020, Riyadh faced a significant fiscal deficit of more than $79 billion’ this is true, but what about 2022? The guardian gave us (months ago) ‘Largest oil and gas producers made close to $100bn in first quarter of 2022’ and two weeks ago we got “Aramco had a 90% year-on-year increase and marks the biggest earnings for the world’s largest energy exporter since its public listing three years ago.” As such the 2020 point of view for a 2022 article makes a lot less sense. And the reference of “around 60% of its financial resources came from oil” might sound fair (or at least correct) but both Neom and the Line show us that this could change, a city with no cars means 4,000,000 less cars creating pollution, needing no gasoline are clear markers in that change. And when the achievement is established other nations will want the same event (especially in Texas where they now start to have energy problems). A stage that could export Saudi skills in other ways too. One significant hurdle is shown with “the biggest technical problem that Saudi Arabia will face in NEOM is the reliance on foreign skilled workers, an issue that is unlikely to be resolved in the short term.” This was true and yes it was a problem, but I illuminated that with “there is now a decent chance that the small hidden engineering texts will be Arabic/Chinese and not Arabic/English. A station that was always likely to happen, but now it seems it is becoming the passing of a fact” a side I saw solved on August 11th 2022, a week before this article was written. I set that in ‘Stirring the soup’, a stage I saw coming a mile away and that too is the larger defeat for the west, especially as China has both the upper echelon and lower echelon of workers, workers Saudi Arabia will need and a job market that is now closing for Europe and America. A longer set of issues that hd been out and open for all to see, now the Silk Road gets the chance to build whilst fuelling itself with oil and revenue, both at the same time. I reckon that Strasbourg never considered that. How interesting that I had done that.

In the end my point of view is that there is no ‘too ambitious’, it comes with the terrain of creating something never done before, as long as the decision makers realise that 2030 is not a static point of completion, they will end up being in a good place. Even completing Phase one by 2030 is an achievement not found anywhere else in the world at present and that completion takes the project crown away from America, not a bad first result. And in all this the redesign of world powers might also be a first, with the chance that China becomes the worlds first power and America? Well they will have to content with the number 6 slot, that is also a consequence of catering to Wall Street, the larger view is lost when the spreadsheet users were all set on next quarter, not next decade. In this I will shown to have been correct yet again. I wonder what else I could see in the near future.

Inspiration and realisation

We all have that, we are inspired, we are trending and we realise that something pushed us. I stated this some time ago when I realised something as I looked at the plans of Neom, things had to change, needed to change to facilitate for Neom. It drove me to design the new 5G solutions. Solutions for a new generation with the shopkeeper in control. As that came about a YouTube video on the Toronto Eaton Centre started the setting for a new version of engagement, driven through Augmented Reality But it is not about that, it is about what drove me.

We are all driven through something. In the 60’s it was Apollo, in the 70’s it was the Cell phone and video games. The 80’s brought us cassettes, Fax and VHR, the 90’s was the age of the internet and so on. When we go ack there was also a stage of buildings. There was the Chinese wall, The pyramids, yet until much much later and the Empire State building there was very little. Yes, Italy had the Pantheon and it was great, but not mind boggling, neither was St. Paul’s Cathedral. For some there was the Eiffel Tower. 1962 got us another US design The Cadet Chapel in Colorado Springs and Singapore gave us the Helix Bridge. Yet in these years after the Empire State building, nothing mind boggling was made. Things were pretty, astounding, but not not mind boggling. It seemed that the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia gets two counts there. The first is Neom, which is merely mind boggling for its size, no city that size has ever been created. A city that spans from Washington DC to New York. The second one is mind boggling. It is the Line. A city in one building. 9 million people in a structure that is 200 meters wide, 170 kilometres long and 500 meters above sea level. It will be visible from space like a silver line over the land of Saudi Arabia. And if this building is completed it will bring marvel to the world, marvel brought to you by Saudi Arabia. 

For me it feels great, several of my IP will add to that design and in that scheme my long term options are great, but it is not about me. You see, like the previous inventions, anyone between 12-15 will find inspiration from something like the line, not one, not 10 but thousands and they could come up with all kind of solutions and new innovations, innovations that I and many from my generation have not yet considered. They will come with the thought “If I do this….. then I could get …..” and like the makers of the iPad, iPod, MS Windows, IBM quantum that generation will create even more and optionally things I never thought of, because the age of wonder will push us all forward and if we can make one building like that, we could actually make a difference and find options for nature to restore itself.

Where idea’s die

I have been tossing and turning on an idea. I am not sure whether it is a good idea, whether it can be adapted to anything, but for some reason the idea would not let go. Almost like the first time I considered the Augmented Reality approach. The idea is related to that. It is a new approach to visibility in jewellery, and if the Mobile can be adjusted this could bring a much larger stage than we see now. Yet I only see the approach for rings and bracelets. There are a few more, but that is open for interpretation and that is where doubt creeps in. A ‘What if’ approach. And the doubt creeps in and makes an appearance. Doubt, it is the place where ideas die. 

And make no mistake, I have doubts just like any other idea man, I believe a decent amount of doubt is good, it makes you redo what you have and test it for yourself but that too comes at a price and my mind is no different than anyone else’s. So, what to do?

Now, I am decently certain that mobiles cannot do what I have in mind, but should that stop the idea? I merely need to find the one maker (Google or Tesla) to add that functionality and a new market is created and I do believe that this market could grow by a lot. And as my mind was filling in blanks and create additional opportunities doubt stepped in and wrecked the train of thought. Yet I feel that pushing on will create the idea stronger and more adapt, but at every step doubt comes in and rears its ugly head. I am ready for doubt and self doubt, it merely makes the idea and my conviction stronger. It was Atropos who stated again and again “μέχρι εκεί θα πάτε” (that is as far as you will go) every time she cut the wire, and at some point he will cut my thread too. Will there be enough time? I hope so, there are plenty of ideas coming forward, and there is a certain satisfaction that my IP bundle keeps on growing (even if it goes nowhere at present). But that is OK, I feel that Tencent is waiting for their steps, I believe that they are making steps to grow League of legends and I believe that the Patent for their console is merely a first step. They might have stopped their game streaming, but the hardware is still there. I think they are awaiting a signal, no idea what signal it is, but it will upset the American streaming player to no end (Amazon Luna, Google Stadia, Netflix, Apple) and whatever Microsoft has. And they are all looking in the same places and that is where my $500M a month idea goes to town, no one is looking in that place and I should consider adding a new player to that field. Yet I feel certain that they will see if it can be done via Tencent (not a given, merely a hunch). And yes there is some doubt, but the larger doubts were crushed when I saw the Unreal Engine 5 presentation of Riverwood. I had the same feeling in 1992 after all the GIF files when I saw the first JPG files. Those who are that old forgot about that moment, didn’t you? And it also gave me the idea that could get the streamers over 50 million subscriptions. Doubt faded and it will for the other idea too. We fight to prevent the ideas to die, but a good amount of doubt keeps the idea strong and that is the stage where I am now, I merely need to convince someone high up in the Tesla Pi department that there is a place where other phones are not looking, or they decided to dump the idea and I believe that there is a market and when it takes off the others will fight to catch up, but they will lose a year, so how to push for the idea that will make that idea fly? And jewellers are the first step. 46,776 Jewellery Stores businesses in the US as of 2022, EU jewellery industry includes some 27,850 companies and whilst we crunch those numbers and we see that there is a little decline in that market we need to realise that those around have their own doubts, they also fight for survival. It might not hinder the larger players like LVMH who declined 17%, Rajesh Exports grew and processes 35% of all the gold produced worldwide, Chanel, Chow Tai Fook, Cartier, Signet, Tiffany and a few more. These larger players might not need that new idea but do you think they stay behind when the idea takes off? They are in it for the numbers and some might have merely declined only 0.41%, but that is enough to set up all the lights and markers, my doubt is not doing well when I see the opportunity as it is and when I saw the Line presentation. A place with 9 million people all in a stage where presentation and representation is key and there my idea will find a voice box. One building with a population that equals London and is larger than Sydney or New York. Yes, my doubt is fading and it is merely one of at least 3 ideas that could find its way there. There is a place where Ideas die, but I feel that I can void that place a little while longer, especially with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia making these kinds of turns and when it starts there the other places can follow or fade. You see, a place like Monaco gets 159,000 tourists and it has as one source stated a mere 128 jewellery stores. So my idea is doing just fine and the idea works 24:7. But I need not worry doubt will come again and test the ideas I have, for now I can see that Andy Jassy and Sundar Pichai have no idea what they are missing out on and it is only half a billion a month, optionally a lot more. So Tencent has options as do two other new players.

Hello Animosity

Yup, I saw a truckload of that. And to be fair, there will be a lot of envy out there. I am not sure if they are ‘protective’ of Andy Jassy, or if they are just against me succeeding. But there is a stage and it is not on one or the other. It does not state if the US succeeds, than so must I, or if I succeed it is not the stage that the US succeeds too. I have something for sale and the US is trying to sell something else. The question becomes more than the insight of Andy Jassy. You see I left the crumbles of evidence all over this blog. If he cannot figure out what I saw than that is OK, he merely needs to see if I am a BS seller, or if I have the diamond in the rough and that setting of a minimum of $500,000,000 a month for months to come, optionally longer for a mere $50 million (post taxation) is almost a dream that is too good to be true and that is merely ONE part of a much larger pie. In my defence there is more to come. You see for me the stage is now almost optimally set. With Tencent entering the streaming stage I can sell to either, I prefer Amazon for a few reasons and it that reason is linked to my other IP. But the US and its China fears are working for me. And the calculation is rather simple. Hand over 10% for a significant slice of that pie, or watch the pie go to China a stage that Andy Jassy and his friends (Amazon Military) as well as a few other settings is not what they want. There is a small chance that Amazon might want a partnership with Google because when these 50 million subscriptions double or even triple, Amazon will see resource issues and sharing the pie with Google might be a better option than seeing things go wrong. In this Amazon should select Google, because Microsoft will merely screw things up. It is like watching a chihuahua yap “try Azure, Azure smells nice” and we have seen too much yapping from that dog (or that colour). And this part needs to go good, because as some might stare at that Saudi Story of a near unimaginable building. There is a lot more at play and I hate to be proven correct that Microsoft ends up fouling up my IP, thank you very much.

We see “The announcement reveals the most important characteristics of THE LINE, which is only 200 meters wide, 170 kilometres long and 500 meters above sea level. THE LINE will eventually accommodate 9 million residents and will be built on a footprint of 34 square kilometres, which is unheard of when compared to other cities of similar capacity.” But I also realise that my 5G IP could be a game changer there, and as that building becomes a new hub of technology there will be additional needs all over the stage and there I see more than one presonal IP flourish, so yes I am eager to sell to the party that gives me my list of needs (a mere 5 items) as well as the amount stated. For a person like Jassy most of them require a mere phone call and merely two items require the use of a corporate credit card (read: actions by the CFO nearest to him). All that for an amount that is nothing to what will be gained? 90% of the companies in the world never get an option like that and for me, I can wait, Tencent is coming and they are hungry for revenue and half a billion a month is a very appealing piece of pie. I personally always believed in the long game, the long game requires an adjusted point of view. I hope to be proven right, anyone would. Yet there too, a set of several IP’s coming into play at the near same time is massively fulfilling and I try to keep a cautious view, over enthusiasm is also dangerous. But months ago my plans were in motion even as I knew nothing of that line. It is merely another piece fitting a kinetic puzzle and more items will be in play and more items will give power, style and curiosity to a structure I had no knowledge of, as such the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia becomes the 4th party that might be interested and they have a few irons that could connect. As I see it the long game becomes a rewarding one (and in time for retirement). It could mean that I retire 5 years early. But then I am a workaholic, so I might not take it quietly. 

But I am exited and slightly too eager, I reckon any coach would be to see the end game approach and winning is a mere point away, it is the killing moment of ones soul. I get that, but I need to refrain from giving too much away, one IP relies on that part to cash in.
