AGAIN! **In this version, the options increase ***and decrease*** exponentially to +/- 256, AND for maximum chaos, the market options independent! The resolution rules are the same, meaning the cumulative resolution will only be 100% split among 2 options.**

The Keynesian Beauty Contest is a game theory experiment where a group of players are asked to guess a number between 0 and 100.. The winner of the contest is the player(s) who guess closest to *half* the average of all the guesses.

This is an attempt to perform this experiment on Manifold, **but using continuous averaging of options**. At close I will resolve the market to *a linear weighting of the options above and below half the average of the unrounded probability weighted value of the options *** OVER TIME**.

For example, if all options are bid down to 0% except 32 and 64, and 32 stays at 30% the whole time, and 64 stays at 70%, the final result is (32*.3 + 64*.7) / 2 = 54.4 / 2 = 27.2, which would mean this market would resolve to 30% 16, 70% 32.

Obscenely grotesquely unnecessary? Wildly and willfully overcomplicated? We're all nerds here, deal with it.

This may not be the final version I use to resolve the market. I'll re-run it when I feel like it, and post the output - I'm not holding myself to any particular schedule.
