When you understand that gold is money and competes with other forms of money in a jumble of cross-rates with no anchor, you’ll know why the monetary system is going wobbly. While you’re watching your favorite shows or movies, you’re going to want to enjoy them in the best way possible. I mention Akecheta first because he figured into what I believe was one of the best hours of television in 2018, the bottle episode “Kiksuya” which arrived in the backend of Season 2. “Kiksuya” is a story told through Akecheta’s eyes, showing how it can be even more devastating to watch America’s own bloody history and destruction of the Native way of life and lands play out as a cool new interactive storyline in a theme park people are paying hundreds of thousands of dollars to participate in. First off, what I’ll say here and now is that I simply can’t defend Dolores’ (Evan Rachel Wood) Season 2 arc. Ultimately, Westworld Season 2 succeed in building on the themes of Season 1. Where the first season asked us to become aware of the larger forces at work controlling our existence, Season 2 asked us, “How can we effectively tear it down and build a version that better suits us?
For the first time since 2008, it looks like central banks are losing control of the global financial system. Confidence in currencies is dropping because investors are losing confidence in the central banks that print them. That’s a big deal because it shows that citizens around the world are starting to lose confidence in other forms of money such as dollars, yuan, yen, euros, and sterling. There are also removable carpet spikes for improved stability for soft, carpeted areas. The time to buy gold is now, before the price spikes and before supplies dry up. We’re in the early stages of a similar super-spike that could take gold to US$10,000 per ounce or higher. Let’s take a look at our picks for the best speaker shelves and stands. And not necessarily the best for all investors in all circumstances. Gold’s role as money is difficult for investors to grasp because gold hasn’t been used as money for decades.
But gold in recent years has been behaving more like money than a commodity or investment. We were expected to keep track of the motivations of many and understand that each of their tiniest moments could end up being more meaningful in the long run. The end result is panic buying of gold and a price super-spike. Gold is a strong competitor in the horse race among various forms of money. Lost confidence in fiat money starts slowly then builds rapidly to a crescendo. Back then, you could buy gold at US$100, US$200, or US$500 per ounce and enjoy the ride. In the new super-spike, you may not be able to get any gold at all. Gold will be in such short supply that only the central banks, giant hedge funds, and billionaires will be able to get their hands on any. Gold doesn’t have any risk. So yes, on the surface, Westworld Season 2’s timeline was whack as hell and yes, oftentimes it felt like this show was trying to make us fall out of love with it by withholding information we should have been getting right off the bat. Even when it feels like Westworld was leading us astray, it was just giving us a different perspective to make us think.
Broadly speaking, what makes Westworld Season 2 so good is embraces complexity and demands you not just tune in, but really dig deep for answers thanks to its more active use of transmedia, a.k.a those extra sites related to the show, clues dropped on social media, and even special e-mails you might have received if you signed up for the Delos Destinations mailing list. In addition to turning us from complacent viewers into active viewers, Westworld Season 2 excelled in illustrating the very human — or, more accurately, human-like — response to existing in a world where you were only ever meant to be a cog in the machine. Also, refresh your memory with our guides on the Westworld timeline and essential episodes to rewatch before the Season 3 premiere. The time-jumps we experienced in Season 2 prove to us that things have always been this way but, if we really want to take action, they don’t have to be in the future — something Season 3 will no doubt explore.
But really, when you take a step back and assess, you can find some beauty within the chaos. The two speaker stands can hold up a combined five pounds. You can get just a single shelf to hold your speaker, DVD or Blu-ray player, satellite or cable boxes, game consoles, or hi-fi and surround speakers. You’ll get two speakers that will hold most satellite speakers, giving you a lot of options. You’ll be able to increase the sound quality from your bookshelf speakers with the SANUS BF31-B1 31″ Speaker Stands for Bookshelf Speakers. Providing you with flexibility, the Atlantic Adjustable Height Speaker Stands come in a set of two and let you set them however you prefer. Being able to see what happens next in a show that you’re really into feeds really well into the “must have it” mindset that we have. Not only do we watch Akecheta achieve sentience in similar ways to Maeve and Dolores, but we have to watch him struggle to comprehend loss and death (of sorts) as he discovers his friends and family become deactivated Hosts kept in a mildewy bunker underneath the park. There is no success without sacrifice, so watching Maeve lose allies and the comfortable parts of her previous life and instead become a character bent on breaking the wheel but doing it smartly (rather than Dolores occasionally erratic approach) was refreshing.
