Earlier today during my weekly update with our customers @koinsandkash, I shared some insights into what happened to the Crypto market last week.

As usual, I tried to break it down as much as possible.

I'm sharing this here as many people still need clarity.

#ust #luna #btc
This summary looks at the three main players involved - #ust, #luna and #btc

By extension, anytime btc is affected (especially negatively), most of the market reacts negatively too.

A quick summary of what went wrong in the market last week.

1. $Terrausd ($ust) is an algorithmic stablecoin that has no backing unlike usdc, usdt, busd and dai. This is a new technology that has not worked successfully however #ust was making some progress. Nonetheless it still had clear flaws.

Finally, as God had promised, Sarah bore Abraham a son, “in his old age” (Gen. 21:2), and he named the baby Isaac (see Gen. 21:1–5).

The biblical notion of “test” (in Hebrew, nissah) refers to the idea of a judgment done to know what is in the heart of one being tested (Deut. 8:2; Gen. 22:12). At the same time, it shows the assurance of God’s grace on their behalf (Exod. 20:18–20).

Whys #NavPancham considered generally good?#NavPancham is #Genesis, #Progression, #CauseEffect relations. In #KaalPurush #Kundali, if #Jaatak is denoted by #Lagan, his/her progeny is denoted by the #PanchamBhaav while the father of this #Jaatak is the #NavamBhaav of the #Chart...
Many ancient #Astrologers have expressed that a #Bhaav can find #Catalyst 5 houses behind itself or 9 houses away from itself (same thing).

So in effect if there is any good connection of the #Navam #Bhaav with the #Lagan (or #Navam #Bhaav from any other #Bhaav) ...
the particular #Bhaav in question can get #SuPrabhaav. The #Lagan or any other #Bhaav is always the #PanchamBhaav from the #Navam.Hence the theory- #NavPancham, is generally considered #YogKaarak.

Basic theories apply as always...

Gunstar Heroes fans:

I've discovered the origin to one of the game's most interesting secrets.

Remember Stage 6's Timeron challenge? Last a whopping 100 real-time minutes against swarms of bullets to unlock the 'satori' message. (1/6)

#SEGA #Genesis #MegaDrive #RetroGaming
Here’s a recording and detailed breakdown of the challenge:

Crazy, right? So what’s the origin? (2/6)
The Gunstar Heroes Timeron challenge is actually a reference to a very obscure game for the Sharp X68000 called ‘Satori: Shooting Practice Program’ from 1991 by Dry.

Thus the ‘YOU OPEN THE - SATORI MIND -’ message.

Satori (悟り, by the way, means 'enlightenment.'(3/6)

Okay, we did it! #Genesis is done. If you missed anything, here’s a thread of it all, starting with the last major recap, up through Gen 36 (all previous recaps are embedded therein...I hope...)

#Genesis 50

The end of the Joseph story

Three chunks of text here (one of which is embedded in another, but is easily identified). The chapter is mostly about the death of Jacob - Joseph’s death only comes at the very end (and only in one story).
The biggest part of the chapter is the fulfillment of Jacob’s request to Joseph at the end of Gen 47, that he be brought back to Canaan to be buried. Sure enough, as soon as Jacob dies, Joseph makes plans to carry out his father’s wishes.
Everything about how this is described conforms to the J story we’ve seen. Joseph having power in Egypt, but still having to ask Pharaoh for things carefully (as with the Goshen request), and Pharaoh being generous in response.

Jacob’s final speech and death

The poem that is here attributed to Jacob’s final words is, as just about everyone recognizes, an originally independent piece. It’s a collection of tribal sayings, mostly with kind of confusing animal imagery and puns.
It might be pretty old - I think it probably is, at least in some original form - but that’s a separate issue. (I do think it’s been edited to account for the historical rise of Judah - the first few lines are quite different in form than what comes later.)
When we find an originally independent unit that appears in the text, we need to ask at what stage it was inserted. Into the canonical text? Into one of the sources? In this case, it’s pretty clear that the poem, whatever its origins, has been taken up by J.

#Genesis 48

Jacob blessed Joseph’s sons

This chapter is mostly a continuous narrative. Jacob is sick and about to die, Joseph brings his kids, and Jacob blesses them, but switches hands, evidently intentionally, and makes a final deathbed request of Joseph.
On grounds exclusively internal to this chapter, there are two parts that stand out. One is the speech in 48:3-7. The problem here is that Jacob refers directly to Ephraim and Manasseh in this speech, and then in the next breath of 48:8 sees them and is like “who are they?”
The second problem is that Jacob blesses the little rascals (they’re probably full-grown adults, at least canonically) twice: once in 48:15-16, and once in 48:20a. And they aren’t quite the same blessing.

#Genesis 47:27-31

The beginning of the end

Two summary statements from P, and one bit of dialogue from J as we near the end of the Joseph story and the various bits and pieces get wrapped up.
Israel settles in Egypt and acquires inheritable holdings (אחוזה) therein. The אחוזה is a P term and concept, and was referred to in the last P verse, 47:11. We have to read the reference to Goshen here as redactional, since that’s J; perhaps it read Rameses here originally.
Obviously the reference to being fruitful and multiplying in this verse is a dead giveaway for P. But what may not be clear is that this is it: this is the moment when Israel fulfills that aspect of the divine promise. It’s done, accomplished, never to be seen again.

Joseph manages Egypt’s economy

This is a section that has long puzzled readers. Joseph is seen here doing some centralized economic planning on behalf of Pharaoh, but what does it have to do with anything else in the story? I’ll tell you....
It’s only hard canonically. Within J - for such this is - it’s actually not only sensible, but almost necessary. First, why is it J?
Many of the usual signs: famine not just in Egypt but in Canaan too. The use of שבר for the grain rations, as only in J. Really the entire concept seems not to recognize the seven years of planning in E, or, for that matter, the seven-year limit on the famine.

Pharaoh meets Joseph’s family

If we’ve been paying attention up to this point, we know what’s supposed to happen here. The brothers are to say that they’re shepherds, so that Pharaoh will let them stay in Goshen, where they have already arrived.
And sure enough, first thing that happens is Joseph says “my brothers are in Goshen, with their flocks” - being sure to mention the whole shepherding thing all off-handed like, the sneaky devil.
And the brothers duly say “we’re shepherds” when Pharaoh asks what they do for a living, and mention the terrible famine in Canaan - which you’ll remember is a part only of the J story - and they specifically ask to remain (ישב) in Goshen.

#Genesis 46:28-34

Jacob arrives in Egypt

If you’re not moved by Joseph and Jacob meeting again after all this time, and by them embracing and weeping, well, you’re more hard-hearted than I am.
The key element of this passage is the arrival of the brothers in Goshen - precisely where Joseph told them in 45:10 they would be living - and the creation of a plan to make sure that Pharaoh would allow them to stay right there.
Does Joseph’s plan involve a ruse? Are his brothers actually shepherds, as he claims and asks them to state? It’s actually not so clear. In E we know they are, from Gen 37. Less so in J, though in 34:5 they’re said to have been in the field with the cattle.

The list of Jacob’s descendants

Here we have the record of who all went to Egypt with Jacob, 70 people in total according to the concluding verse. Which you’d think would be straightforward enough. But God forbid it ever be so easy.
First, there’s the obvious little insertion of the phrase “but Er and Onan died in the land of Canaan,” which is a reference to the J story of Gen 38, and which is clearly secondary here because why would they be in a list of who went to Egypt if they’d died? And they’re counted!
Second, Joseph and his sons Manasseh and Ephraim are listed, despite being in Egypt (as the list admits), and not only are they listed they’re also counted. But also not - at the end of the list we’re told it’s 66 who went down, not counting Joseph and his sons.

Jacob leaves for Egypt

This is another sort of funnel point for the sources in the canonical text. A million different things can happen before and after this, but in every source Jacob and his family have to leave Canaan to settle in Egypt.
Luckily we know one thing about one of the versions of this moment, which is that in J Joseph has sent his brothers back for Jacob. Which means that 46:1, in which Jacob just starts off by himself, ain’t J.
The divine speech Jacob receives (in a night vision) also doesn’t look like the speech you’d make to someone who is accompanied by his sons and who knows that Joseph has sent for him.

#Genesis 45

Joseph reveals himself

The final continuous segment of our J story here, the culmination of all Joseph’s schemes, and the tying up of the plot going all the way back to Gen 37.
“I am your brother Joseph whom you sold into Egypt” - true only of the J story, and the counter-verse to E’s “I was stolen from the land of the Hebrews.” Two threads in Gen 37 that weave through the rest of the Joseph story.
“It was to save life that God sent me ahead of you” - the entire J story is one of fortuitous circumstance, of behind the scenes divine providence. Joseph knows that in a way the brothers don’t, and so it is he who puts this into words for them, repeatedly.

#Genesis 44

Joseph screws with his brothers

Here is the moment that Joseph has been waiting for since Gen 37: the moment when Judah in particular proves himself to have changed, to value others above himself, to be willing to take the place of the brother bound for slavery.
It’s also the third time that we’ve gone through the whole sequence of events: first when Joseph originally meets his brothers, then when they tell Jacob about it, and now when Judah tells Joseph about when they told Jacob about it. It’s repetitive just like Gen 24, but longer.
As repetitious as it is (and sort of boring to read), it does serve the purpose of ensuring that all of these chapters are an inseparable unit. (See yesterday’s diatribe.) One new bit: Judah reports Jacob as mentioning how he believes Joseph to have died: torn by a beast (44:28).

Joseph’s brothers return

Nothing but a continuation of the previous chapter, and of the J story. Honestly these chapters are a model for what coherent, continuous, consistent biblical writing looks like. And they highlight the incoherence of other passages.
The argument that sometimes pops up, that those of us engaged in literary-historical criticism are simply misunderstanding how ancient literature worked, or judging it through a modern lens, crashes against the rocks of passages like this (and there are plenty of them).
Consistency of narrative claim, of basic plot - who, what, when, where, why, how - isn’t some modern literary concept. We know this because passages like this exist, that display all the consistency we moderns expect from a text.

Joseph’s brothers come to Egypt

All J, every last word. Herewith a selection of distinctively J features, with commentary on a few ostensibly sticky points.
The famine is in Canaan, not just Egypt. This picks up and reinforces the second of the two threads from the end of the previous chapter, in which the whole world is coming to Egypt for food. The word for rations here is שבר, which, as noun and verb, is only in the J story here.
Jacob’s holding back of Benjamin is naturally tied to the previous loss of Benjamin’s brother, Joseph; the story of Jacob mourning the loss of Joseph is, of course, from J in Gen 37.

#Genesis 41:53-57

The famine comes

There seem to be two subtly different things going on here. One is the explicit fulfillment of Joseph’s dream interpretation: the arrival of the seven years of famine, for which he and Egypt have been preparing.
So we get notices here about the Egyptians being hungry, and about Pharaoh directing them to Joseph, all of which make sense in that framework. But interspersed with that is something else: that there’s a famine everywhere in the world, not just in Egypt.
That in itself wouldn’t be so strange - famine in one place, why not everywhere - but the way it’s presented is weird. First, it doesn’t say that *the* famine was everywhere, as we might expect, since we know about this famine pretty well already. Just “there was a famine.”
