Somethings shouldn’t work.
But, oddly, do.
The first mention of a candle auction was back in 1641.
In a candle auction, the end of the auction is when the candle flame goes.
So, no one could know exactly when the auction would end.
Normally you save your highest bid for the end.
But what happens when you don’t know when the end is.
Candle auctions are counterintuitive.
But they can produce results far greater than the normal way of doing things.
The known becomes unknown.
And its power increases.
