Updated and revised.New Trader paused in thought. ´´If I’m not in control, then my emotions are based on my impulses, bad attitude, preconceived beliefs about how things work, the fight or flight instinct, and possibly a self-constructed ego that feels threatened by failure or maybe even by success.” New Trader said.Rich Trader nodded. ´´You’re none of those things. Don’t let them control your mind and your actions.”´´But if I’m not any of those things, then what am I?”´´You are the witness. If you change your perspective and see these emotions for what they are, you are not them; you are human consciousness witnessing what comes into focus. You can let them take over or you can control your mind and your will. You let external elements influence your actions, or you take control of your emotions and can make decisions that take you where you want to go in life. It’s a choice and only you can make it.”New Trader sat quietly. That was deep.Join New Trader in the next installment of his trading journey.

It is certain that large numbers of slaves were exported from eastern Africa; the best evidence for this is the magnitude of the Zanj revolt in Iraq in the 9th century, though not all of the slaves involved were Zanj. There is little evidence of what part of eastern Africa the Zanj came from, for the name is here evidently used in its general sense, rather than to designate the particular stretch of the coast... to which the name was also applied. (Ghada Hashem Talhami, ´´The Zanj Rebellion Reconsidered´´, The International Journal of African Historical Studies) It has often been said that the greatest invention of all time was the sail, which facilitated the internationalization of the globe and thus ushered in the modern era. It was the sail that linked the continents of Africa, Asia, and Europe, and thus it was also the sail that facilitated the greatest involuntary human migration of all time. The transatlantic slave trade was founded by the Portuguese in the 15th century for the specific purpose of supplying the New World colonies with African slave labor. It was soon joined by all the major trading powers of Europe, and it reached its peak in the 18th century with the founding and development of plantation economies that ran from the South American mainland through the Caribbean and into the southern states of the United States. The East African Slave Trade, on the other hand, or the Indian Ocean Slave Trade as it was also known, was a far more complex and nuanced phenomenon, far older, significantly more widespread, rooted in ancient traditions, and governed by rules very different to those in the western hemisphere. It is also often referred to as the Arab Slave Trade, although this, specifically, might perhaps be more accurately applied to the more ancient variant of organized African slavery, affecting North Africa, and undertaken prior to the advent of Islam and certainly prior to the spread of the institution south 1.
