    Math can only describe Nature it can never explain it. That is the real problem with modern-day Monetary policy, physics, medicine, epidemiology, and BTC modeling is a reliance on math. Math models that were wrong and invalid created problems in COVID. The same is true with the S2F model in BTC. It was invalid and created massively wrong predictions this halving. The reliance of the Fed's Ph.D. on math has created the narrative that MMT is plausible when we are teetering on the edge of destruction.

    A reliance on religion was used before math because it was practical to do. Religious dogma had limitations to thinking just as math is affecting us today. We've replaced one bad religion with another.

    Prior to quantum mechanics, almost every major systematic error which has deluded men for thousands of years relied on practical experience. Horoscopes, incantations, oracles, magic, witchcraft, the cures of witch doctors and of medical practitioners before the advent of modern medicine, were all firmly established through the centuries in the eyes of the public by their supposed practical successes.

    Mathematics ushered in an era that featured the replacement of religion with the scientific method. The scientific method was usurped by mathematics in most fields in the 20th and 21st century and been hailed as a big upgrade. The scientific method was devised precisely for the purpose of elucidating the nature of things under more carefully controlled conditions and by more rigorous criteria than are present in the situations created by practical problems.

    The problem in 2021, is where do not understand the limits of mathematical scientism in the sciences today and the pitfalls it brings to society.

    Math addiction in any field creates dogma, dogma = scientism. Math reliance creates "scientism" = religion. Feynman said, "if there is something very slightly wrong in our definitions of our theories, then full mathematical rigor may convert these errors into ridiculous conclusions."

    See COVID modeling and how it led to lockdowns. See the addition of math Ph.D.'s to economics and how we ended up with MMT from the Fed by way of Paul Samuelson.

    The truth is staring all of us in the face in many areas of our lives but we still won't acknowledge the blindspots.


    Math can only describe Nature, it can never explain it. The consequences of relying on a bad religion can be devasting to society.

    Is the Fed’s mathematical modeling of MBS QE harming the housing market? Fuck yes.
