The only way out of the human quagmire is to reduce our numbers, significantly increase human intelligence throughout the reduced population, develop a new means to measure value created and value earned that abolishes those current means easily manipulated to gain immense power and wealth by the few, and encourage a cultural renaissance that attempts to understand man’s place and purpose relative to infinity, eternity, the great unknown that man has conveniently suppressed with the concept of God.
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.
A profit is nothing more than trickery and deception, for a thing is only worth the energy used to create it, nothing more, nothing less.
All that man has created, or could’ve created, or could create, could’ve or could be done without Gold.
What other creatures will take our money in exchange for something we want?
A gold rock, a piece of paper, a coin, has no energy to expend or provide and therefore has no worth.
Even a fool can become rich if he picks the winning number.
Bankers are like priests – they pass an empty bowl around and the people fill it with their money.
Making money off money is nothing short of a magic trick.
Taking a loan or using credit breaks the harmonious law of nature that says no energy can be used without using energy to use it.
A river flows from its source to the ocean while money flows onto itself.
A billionaire doesn’t have enough energy to count his billions.
The only currency that has value is the mind, the hand, blood and sweat.
Men dig tons of earth to find an ounce of gold (Heraclitus — sixth century B.C.)
