An Eternal Career

  a selection from Chapter I: 'Life is God, which is infinitely individually expressed.' Life is an unsolved mystery, an unfinished symphony, the solution and conclusion of which is known only to God. Reluctant as Life is about divulging its secrets, certain laws and principles have been discovered which serve as clues for those attempting to wrest from it an answer. Some of these follow. God is Lifethe First Great Cause and Source of all things, created and uncreated, manifested and unmanifested. Life has neither beginning nor end and is the invisible Principle animating all forms. Life is independent of forms, but forms are dependent on Life. Life is limitless, but forms are limited. Life is priori and posteriori to form. For example, when Life withdraws from the human body, the body becomes a corpse and disintegrates. But man is and was a spirit long before incarnated in flesh, and continues to be after the form is discarded. Man is an effect from God the Cause, and the Cause and the effect are one. We are dependent on God first for existence and evermore for support. In Him we live and move and have our being, which is not a neighborly relation, but one of ineffable permeation. Apart from God there is nothing. God, or Life, is constantly projecting Himself into all manner of forms, and extends without inequality and separation into all men. God is in all, and all are in God expressing Him according to their capacity and organization. The lowest contains the highest undeveloped, while the highest pervades the lowest. Man is an abridged edition of his Creator with all of His powers and faculties in a latent degree. Man is God in quality but not in quantity. From Life there is no escape, no door to annihilation; when once created and individualized, man is an eternal fact in the universe. Life, as known to man, is associated with consciousness and intelligence, in one form or another, on some sphere of expression or another. Life without self-consciousness would be merely an abstraction, not a being. What is man's relation to Life? It is analogous to his relation to the air which he inhales and exhales. He is a participator, a spectator and a vehicle of Life. As with the air so with Life; it is ours to use but never to possess. a selection from Chapter XIII: DEATH! Who coined that awful word with its dread implication? Who painted death with its dark and false colors? People shrink with terror when they hear of it; their voices sink when they speak of it; their minds fill with fear when they think of it; their whole being vibrates to a different force when they contemplate it. They look upon it as the greatest calamity and act as if their loved ones were no more, and become immersed in the deepest despair. THERE IS NO DEATH! What seems to be cessation is only transition; the soul withdraws from the physical organism and continues to exist as an organized entity of spirit, mind and spirit-body. The external form mingles again with the elements of earth nevermore to be reclaimed; but the spirit is clothed in its spiritual body which has senses and faculties corresponding to all of the physical ones. Death is a mystery because of its silence, but it is not a fearful one. It is the friend who frees you, who has the key to the door that can be opened in no other way. It comes unsought, quite often with a stealthy tread and you are called to go elsewhere. All the collected power of the world cannot ward off this visitor; no excuses avail; no period of waiting is permitted; no time extended to finish earthly business. If your pen is lifted you may not be able to write. You may be active in your daily duties when this messenger arrives; or it may overtake you in your sleep, to awaken in another state of consciousness.

BICs 4 Derivatives Volume I: Theory

  This volume introduces the concept of BICs (Basis Instruments Contracts) as the most elementary type of contract to price and hedge any derivatives contract statically. This The Book motivates and introduces the BICs (Basis Instrument Contracts) concept introduced by the author; develop its theoretical and practical framework to address pressing risk management and mathematical issues that the narrower continuous time finance/martingale analysis have failed to handle. It innovates not only from the viewpoint of derivatives pricing and risk management but more fundamentally from the viewpoint mathematical philosophy, theory. Because it is neither written nor presented in the familiar language of current experts, it is easy to dismiss at first, yet its value has been tested and proved. The content of this book is timely with the current financial crisis and the challenges faced by quantitative trading strategies funds. Much of the prescription of the book could have helped avert the severity of the present crisis; the prescriptions on credit market organization were uniquely prescient; BICs would help alleviate liquidity dry-up negative impact on derivatives dynamic hedging; It provides a basis for preventing short selling activity effect on the underlyings prices. Globally, the major contribution of this book is the analytic framework it introduces, develops and the rationale behind it. It represents a major departure from the stochastic process approach as major tool for randomly fluctuating systems analysis of the past century. This approach widens the scope of analysis while at the same time practically simplifying real life problems. Specifically, numerous powerful results are established. For example: • From a purely mathematical standpoint, we establish an a priori unrelated distributional linkage result that essentially makes the use of copulas for distributional linkage redundant and limited in scope. This result can be applied in a variety of fields for multivariate analysis. • From a practical standpoint we show how Levy processes are particularly well suited for derivatives pricing using the Fourier BIC set format and derive various “closed” for all “Moments derivatives” of interest. • From a mathematical finance standpoint, we establish fundamental theorems of asset pricing (FTAP) investigation in the case of a price taker that sees a bid and offer prices for all derivatives contract and in the case of a single market maker that must quote arbitrage free BICs. We also establish a very important “Coase” type theorem that shows the dependence of Derivatives prices on the composing BIC basis. We further establish very important quantitative estimates. • In a timely relevant section on credit risk, we make a strong argument for a unique (actual or virtual) counterparty of reference in all trades to facilitate the measurement and management of individual counterparty credit risk. Indeed, such a framework been in place, regulators and market participants would have better averted the development of the sub-prime mortgage crisis. In the current debate for regulatory reform, the need for such a framework has not been heard. This book could help make the case for a specific focus in this direction

Where the Critique of Pure Reason laid out Kant's metaphysical and epistemological ideas, this relatively short, primarily meta-ethical, work was intended to outline and define the concepts and arguments shaping his future work The Metaphysics of Morals. However, the latter work is much less read than the Groundwork. The Groundwork is notable for its explanation of the categorical imperative, which is the central concept of Kants moral philosophy. The Groundwork is broken into a preface, followed by three sections. Kant's argument works from common reason up to the supreme unconditional law, in order to identify its existence. He then works backwards from there to prove the relevance and weight of the moral law. The third and final section of the book is famously obscure, and it is partly because of this that Kant later, in 1788, decides to publish the Critique of Practical Reason.

THE WORLD AS IT COULD BE MADE The Analysis of Minda selection from the PREFACE:This book has grown out of an attempt to harmonize two different tendencies, one in psychology, the other in physics, with both of which I find myself in sympathy, although at first sight they might seem inconsistent. On the one hand, many psychologists, especially those of the behaviourist school, tend to adopt what is essentially a materialistic position, as a matter of method if not of metaphysics. They make psychology increasingly dependent on physiology and external observation, and tend to think of matter as something much more solid and indubitable than mind. Meanwhile the physicists, especially Einstein and other exponents of the theory of relativity, have been making 'matter' less and less material. Their world consists of 'events,' from which 'matter' is derived by a logical construction. Whoever reads, for example, Professor Eddington's 'Space, Time and Gravitation' (Cambridge University Press, 1920), will see that an old-fashioned materialism can receive no support from modern physics.
