Here's a contemporary report by Francis Perry, Superintendent of the Anglo-American Cable Office at Liverpool at the time."The Anglo-American Telegraph Company, by its cables between Valentia [Ireland] and Heart’s Content [Newfoundland], makes a great point in transmitting the quick-time messages, or “stocks” as they are termed; the wires are brought into the Stock Exchange at New York, while the Company’s office in Throgmorton Street, London, is within a few steps of the Stock Exchange in that city.Enter Lene Vestergaard Hau, who has found a way to harness the one thing we all thought -- by its very nature -- was unbeatable.High speed stock trading across the Atlantic dates back to 1866, when the first successful telegraph connection was made by undersea cable.
I mean, the notion that the startle circuit by-passing the brain to make us jump gives pause to conventional wisdom about shell-shock and the idea of being in shock for a moment, unable to react with logic.The hypothesis says we are engaging the same neural tricks that let us know where our hand can catch a ball when it's thrown to us.Because visual interpretation takes finite time, we've learned to see where things are going to be, not where they are.We kick things off with one of the longest-running experiments in the world.As Joshua Foer explains, the Pitch Drop Experiment is so slow, you can watch it for hours (check out the live cam) and not detect the slightest movement. Picture the scrum of the stock exchange -- the flurry of buying and selling, the split-second decisions that make and break fortunes.
