    [Audio] Harvard Medical School and the New England Journal of Medicine Weigh-in on the Obesity Crisis – It’s a Virus!

    What causes obesity? Apparently fat friends  — you catch it from them like a virus – or at least that is what a Harvard Medical School professor has published in the New England Journal of Medicine. Socionomics has some ideas on the subject, too. Unconscious social mood and herding are […]

    [Audio] What a Socionomic Research Scientist Does

    Ever wonder how research in the science of Socionomics is conducted? Dan Gough interviews Deepak Goel of the Socionomics Institute, a physicist by training, on how he conducts research into socionomic subjects such as social mood, Elliott Waves, and so on.

    [Audio] The Science of Socionomics – Part 2

    The Directors discuss where Socionomics is as a science, what has been accomplished, next steps in the process, experiments underway, and related fields of study. Also, listen to a preview discussion of Bob Prechter and Wayne Parker’s recently published paper on the differences between financial and economic decision making.

    [Article] Sociometrics: Applying Socionomic Causality to Social Forecasting

    The underlying idea of causality that the Standard Social Science Model simplistically borrows from physics that external social actions cause reactive changes in social mood is inappropriate for understanding the genesis of financial market action.

    [Article] Another Example of a Link Between Nature’s Trees and Waves

    Since plotting an aspect of a stylized tree produces a stylized Elliott wave, we may reiterate the suspicion that plotting aspects of robust fractals in the form of arbora in nature is likely to produce robust fractals called Elliott waves, with all the natural order and variation that we have come to know from their expressions in financial markets.

    [Article] Science is Revealing the Mechanism of the Wave Principle

    It is one thing to say that the Wave Principle makes sense in the context of nature and its growth forms. It is another to postulate a hypothesis about its mechanism.
