The Discovery

“There is a tide in the affairs of men.
Which, taken at the flood,
leads on to fortune …”
– Shakespeare

In 1987, Robert Taylor made a revolutionary discovery.  His work within the science of frequency domain and time domain enabled him to identify a unique dominant frequency that appeared to have a direct effect on human behavior. This dominant frequency is “gravitational fluctuations”.

The Taylor Effect

The financial market’s expansion and contraction is qualitatively in direct correlation to the increases and decreases in gravitational fluctuations experienced at the human level. The increases in market price are in direct response to decreases in gravitational forces; the decreases in market price are in direct response to the increases in gravitational forces.

This discovery was so outstanding that he diverted most of his attention to the theory that gravitational fluctuations may have a strong influence on human behavior.  After nine years of research, he was satisfied he had a theory defining the predictability of human behavior.

In 1996, Taylor solicited the help of other theoretical physicists and scientists to advance his discovery.  These mathematicians and engineers are considered to be the leading scientists in the field of aerospace control systems.  Together, Taylor and his group developed and wrote over two hundred programs in the field of time domain and frequency domain control systems.  Taylor’s focus was to develop sophisticated software programs that could successfully forecast financial markets.  His team concentrated their efforts on developing models for the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA); The Standard and Poor’s 500 index (S&P500); the NASDAQ Average; U.S. Treasury Bonds; and currencies.

The Nobel Prize Nomination

In SeptNobel_Prizeember of 1999 Taylor submitted his finished programs and empirical studies to a world-renowned group of scholars, colleagues and scientists in Washington DC.  Their task was to evaluate the reliability and validity of Taylor’s incredible findings.

They concluded Taylor’s discovery was so profound that on March 14, 2000 this group of scholars and scientists signed a petition to nominate Robert D. Taylor for the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economics and titled his revolutionary findings, “The Taylor Effect”.
