some true words from gann

    Just reading some notes and thought this one had a good message


    Once you are familiar with the source of Gann's ideas, then you have levelled the playing field somewhat.
    You begin to recognize why he wrote in the peculiar way he wrote.

    Gann quoted Emerson at the beginning of "Truth of the Stock Tape" (p.
    1) as saying:

    <"b>No man can learn what he has not preparation for learning, however near to his eyes is the object.

    A chemist may tell his most precious secrets to a carpenter, and he shall be never the wiser -- the
    secrets he would not utter to a chemist for an estate."

    Gann's message would appear to be:
    I am able to write these things to you exactly BECAUSE you don't understand what I'm saying.

    If I thought you understood me, I wouldn't tell you these things. (Cf. Alan Greenspan: "If you believe you have understood me, then I must
    have expressed myself wrongly.")

    You need to track him back to his lair. And even then its hard work.
    But the journey, if you choose to take it, is amazing.

    Remember also that Gann wrote:

    "Man has within him the key to the process by which he may know all there is to learn and receive all that he needs from the universal, divine supply.

    You tune in to this source and supply through the
    spoken word by putting your message in the air and the divine, universal mind which is in tune with yours will receive it.
    Other men and women throughout the world, who are in tune, will receive your message and help you."

    W. D. Gann, "The Magic Word," p. 92
