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.
Man attributes wealth to gold, diamonds, and paper money. One day man will realize rocks and paper are worthless relative to clean water, pure air, and a healthy flourishing Earth.
