If all the information is on the table

a rational actor will behave this way.

Maximize utility.

The Lincoln Town Car will no longer be manufactured after 2011.

There are over 25000 Lincoln Town Cars in New York City. Most of them are black. Some of them are white.

Blackness in and of itself is of no significance.

Neither is whiteness.

Information always eventually becomes evenly distributed.

The laws of gravity can be derived from the distribution of entropy in the universe.

If all the information is on pieces of paper

in briefcases in offices above the floor the first plane struck

and all the paper is burning or blowing in the wind there is

on a clear September day a rational actor

will no longer specialize

are black of itself neither

always entropy --

This was not like that.

After September 11 2001 the Federal Reserve cut short-term interest rates to historically low levels from 6.5% to just 1%.

Is forgetting the same as keeping a secret?

If all the information is distributed paper

falls subject to gravity and the wind

on the table that is not like this snow

on a clear September day

neither is whiteness utility.

If all the information is in the cloud

on pieces of blowing in the wind

eventually concludes that interest rates

do not explain historic trends for the country.

Is keeping a secret the same as lying?

It disturbs people to think

that among this falling paper

there are falling men and women.

They fall faster

and time slows as you watch them

near the horizon they never reach

but at a well-defined moment

they burst into flame the temperature of information.

It disturbs people to think

of the choice between fire and falling

until memory becomes a photograph

the colour of information

and there are no bodies only architecture

only geometry only conformal equivalence

only unstoppable collapse into noise.

No state has more entropy.

How much information fits here?

It's proportional to the surface area

in units of the Planck length.

Imagine a small black hole under the Hudson

under the towers or offset, in Jersey

where Lehman was.

A place where information drains

from the world.

A place where there are no bodies,

no names, no numbers.

A place after the proof

of the Financial Instability Hypothesis

where there are no memories

no secrets, no lies.

Where form does not differ from emptiness;

where the black and white paper of record

lies open and hiding the fall forgetting

The same is true of feelings

perceptions formations consciousness.

Information.
