IF you want to win, neutrality does not work.
IF you want to win , you must be mindful AND control your self
The trick - taking advantage of others using numbers - hides inside the theory of probability and involves being keen to chance variation.
- being mindless / insensitive to context
- being mindful / "so simple it almost defies belief" (06.34 of my 00:53 link): "actively noticing new things"
IT has nothing to do - for example - with "sad" or being frustrated and miserable about ponzi schemes as policy.
It has everything to do about being mindful and not mindless and about being dispassionate about using it to pull the trigger in trading opportunities ("noticing new things trade opps") be they - as Jay says - "whether you are a scalper, day trader or swing trader."

JP// Being neutral is what's it's all about, not necessarily emotionless. But seeing so many Covid deaths in India and the rest of the world is making me numb, but then just remind yorself... Your Human... Be Neutral... The perpetrators above are dealing with it.
In hte mean time: we can pass the time by watching a little bit of https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MvFFSUiqQyQ.

Stanford University's disease prevention chairman slammed using statewide lockdown measures as a response to the coronavirus, saying they were implemented based on bad data and inaccurate modeling.
Ioannidis questioned whether the rate of infection and mortality rate were worth shutting down the U.S. economy for months.
“Major consequences on the economy, society, and mental health have already occurred," he said. "I hope they are reversible, and this depends to a large extent on whether we can avoid prolonging the draconian lockdowns and manage to deal with COVID-19 in a smart, precision-risk targeted approach rather than blindly shutting down everything."
I am talking pure numbers. Exponential growth of infections will collapse the health system, increase the probability if getting infected by anyone you meet- logarithmically, will make us suspect every person around us as a potential "killer".
The virus knows only one thing: INFECT and MULTIPLY.
Our mind (Darwinian evolution) can only think linearly. God created this unfortunate bifurcation and right now it is hurting us. This is why Degrasse bemoaned the paucity of exponential thinking/perception. Ask your friends the following riddle:
A bacteria is put in a jar at 11:00 o'clock and it multiplies every minute. The Jar is full at 12:00. When is it half full?!
You will be shocked to see that almost 75% of your respondents will give the wrong answer.

"It is pure MATHEMATICS that rules the world.
The gap between our behavior and math rules is killing us"
It is statistics, part of life. not good nor bad: it is what it is.
At a personally individual level, dealing with one's own destiny comes down to skill dealing with luck.
Dealing with numbers (statistics) requires one to be dispationate because emotion distorts what otherwise are cool numbers. (cool as in emotionless)

Mindfulness in the Time of a Pandemic
People are shocked at the numbers.
Neil deGrasse Tyson complained in his wonderful lectures that our schooling systems errs tragically by not teaching exponential thinking.
Take the basic equation 2^x= 2x.
It has two solutions for x===1 and 2. beyond 2 the exponential functions runs away. 2 to the power of 10 is 1000. 2 times 10 is 20. 2 to the power of 64 (number of grains of wheat on the chessboard from the famous fairy tale) is a number no one can fathom.
We simply do not understand that the corona virus is multiplying exponentially and the number of infected (not necessarily sick but certainly potential future infectors ) people is going to grow at a frightening pace.
And people are "shocked". (at least here in Israel. The government called for emergency meetings after the Sabbath)
It has nothing to do with this or that type of gathering. It is pure MATHEMATICS that rules the world.
The gap between our behavior and math rules is killing us .
