Aphorism 74

The higher of us create art, music, poetry, and thought — they seek more than all that is animate and non-human and they seek more than most that are human.  They are the best souls amongst us, but they are not rich, powerful, comfortable, or known.

A few may rise into the known via their unchallenged genius, but the baser of us uses them for their own banal interests –their torch or delicate flower offered to us is snuffed out or trampled upon, or used for a profit or tweaked for an agenda.  We pick the wrong role models and heroes and exploit the genius and authentic spirits to perpetuate our mis-guided direction.

Aphorism 34

The human outward invented the concept called credit or debt or loan.  Credit is the plug for profit.  Those workers and customers from which a profit is made use credit, debt, and loans to live.  Of course their interest payments make them more poor and the rich richer.  Credit is just a means to prolong an economic collapse and revolution.

Aphorism 33

The human outward invented a concept called profit.  What is a profit?  A profit is when one makes more money relative to the cost.  Therefore the one that profits either charges the customer too much money or he under-pays those that perform the work to produce the product for sale.  Those that both under-pay their workers and over-charge their customers make the greatest profit.  This is why there are far more poor than rich.

Aphorism 31

Ever since man invented currency and placed value on paper, minerals, jewels and coins, he lost sight of what true wealth is to the human existence and perpetuation and advancement of that existence.  Human energy focused and applied for an ever progressing momentum generation after generation is a worthy goal.  Accumulating as much paper and gold rocks in a single lifetime is nothing more than the process of a child becoming a professional thief cloaked in a suit and tie.
