Kurt money is figment of your imagination

How Money Works

 

In order to explain something that is very complex, we need to begin simply with something that can be grasped easily. If you were going to study physics or chemistry one of the first things that they show you is a model of an atom. This model looks like a solar system with a nucleus or the sun at the center, and electrons rotate around that look like planets. And you are told that each of the electrons may have a different orbit. As these electrons receive or release energy their orbits may change as a planet going around the sun that is given more energy like a booster rocket would change its orbit around the sun to a different location. How an atom works is far more complex and difficult to fathom even for scientists that have studied them for years.

 

The reason that they show you the simple model is so that you can have a foundation to understand the more more complex things to come. Money is an incredibly complex thing. Money is just human beings, billions of them working and cooperating together, and how it operates in reality may appear very chaotic and random like an atom, but when they are working together atoms can create a rock a dog, or a human being.

 

Without understanding how these atoms work, you will not be able to understand chemistry, physics or biology.

 

We are going to use a very simple model on How Money Works, how humans view it, and how it interacts with our lives. Money is far more complex than this simple example that we are going to use, but it will give you a foundation to understand it better.

 

This is the same as with numbers 1,2,3, which when used properly can get a rocket to Mars. This is how easy it is going to be 1, 2, 3....as the song says.

 

In the Human Condition humans use money to be better than other humans.

 

In The Devil State humans use money to put other humans down to make themselves feel better. This is when you steal from others or if you have plenty then you don't share. You can enslave people and give them very little money, and charge them a lot for food and shelter. You can ridicule them for not having enough even though they have been put in situations where it is difficult to acquire money.

In the Devil State people use money to put others down. They say things like "I have more than you, so I am better than you. I have a nicer home, nicer house, better food, so I have a higher social standing." In The Devil State you can make it quite difficult for others to get more. There are only so many hours to work harder or smarter in the world, so you make sure others do not have time to improve themselves. You will see that they have low pay so that it takes many hour to cover their basic expenses. You can make sure that others have less: you will build fences to keep others from resources, you will hire armed guards to keep others away, you will control media sources and gossip about the "Lazy People" who are not earning their keep. Since the resources are locked up and these people are kept away from education, the only way for them to get basic food and shelter is to line up and become slaves to those that "Own" the resources.

 

The second way humans can be better than others is in the Human State. This is where we work hard to lift ourselves up. This is when we work long hours to increase our paycheck, or aim for the job that pays lots of money. We do extra work to win a commission. We save our money, invest it in money markets ....so that it can grow on its own.  We save our money for retirement so that we will have funds to live when we can no longer work.

 

In the Human State a person will work very hard, save or invest their money. They will go to colleges and universities, and get a piece of paper that they hang on the wall so others can see the superiority they have. They will get a mortgage (mort...latin for death, gauge...to measure) which figures out how much longer they have to live and then loan them the money to buy a house. When they pay off the mortgage they will then be dead. The banks figure how much useful time you have left then give you a loan that last this long. Then you become a slave for the rest of your life.  

 

In the God State we use money to lift others up.  When we provide jobs with adequate pay, provide education, healthcare, and opportunities for advancement to others we enter into The God State. We see that others have adequate employment and activities to create fulfillment in their lives.

 

In the God state you give to charities that are helping others. You work on Habitat for Humanity so poor people can have a place to live. You live in a house that is "less" than you can afford. You drive a car that is not the latest or greatest even though you could afford the best. You understand that the better off others are the happier and more abundant your life will be. This is why many after working so hard to acquire things realize all of this stuffs means very little to them. They then give their money to charities and to helping the poor and underprivileged.

 

In what state of The Human Condition would you like to invest your money? All three parts of the Human Condition you will find in every monetary transaction between humans.  

 

Money

 

Money, Money, Money. Humans are obsessed with it! Whether they want more, or are trying to avoid the need for greed. What is this “thing” that dominates the minds of so many?  What value does this have? What power over us does it have? How does it work?  Do we need more of it? Is it an object to be obtained or is it a figment of your imagination?  

 

I have learned that Whatever you want in life, you will need to give away…

 

If you want more love, kindness and respect, what would you give away? Logically you would give away love, kindness, and respect. If you decided you wanted more hate, disgust and anger, what would you give away? ...You would give away more hate, disgust, and anger. If you want more knowledge what would you give away? You would give away knowledge. This is why teachers always learn more than the students. If you wish to learn something, start teaching it.

If you want money, give away money. Who earns more money, employees or employers? ...Employers always earn more money because they are spending more money. They have to pay all the bills and paychecks for everyone.

I hear people complain all of the time that they are constantly giving things away (sacrificing themselves) and they are not getting anything back. They give away money to their children expecting the children to love them or respect them. Then they wonder why the children do not respect or love them. This is because they are giving money, they are not giving love and respect. You should just be giving money to your employees or the grocery store.

Many people give love kindness and respect hoping for money in return, this does not work very well. Others give away money hoping for knowledge and education. This is why our school systems are so inefficient.

Giving away information does not convince others, it only causes others to give you more information back. They will tell you that you are wrong and they will give you information on their opinion and their ideas.

If you want to convince others you will need to Listen to them and understand their side of the issue. When you have gained their confidence they will be open to listen to you.

If you want more energy. What would you give away? For example, if one person sits on a couch all day and consumes a lot of potato chips.  Then you have another person exercising all day and eats very little food. Who will have the most energy? The one giving away and taking in little.  

 

"The love that you give becomes the love that you get." -String Cheese Incident

 

The Velocity of Money

 

Here is a simple example of how money works. This will be like the atom with the electrons circling around it to explain physics and chemistry, or the numbers 1,2,3 to explain rocket science.

 

Take a group of 10 people. They have one dollar bill among them. They pass this bill from one to the other, once every hour. The dollar bill travels in one direction, goods and services are passed in the other direction… a lesson, a smile, perhaps a book, an old video game, a hug and a kiss… When you bring your paycheck home and give it to your significant other, what do you get in return? ...a hug and a kiss.

 

If the dollar bill goes around once per hour, how much will they be making? ...one dollar per hour.  If they pass the dollar bill ten times per hour…. $10 per hour. Passing the bill one hundred times per hour…. each will be making $100 per hour.  All of this with only one dollar bill in the room.  The only thing that has changed is how fast they move the dollar bill from one person to the other.  This is called The Velocity of Money.

 

Now you may say “But they do not get to keep the money?” “How can they be earning anything?”  ...And what happens to you every week after you get paid? Likely you get $500, then you turn around, and give this to someone else. They, in turn, give this to the next person in line. You pay bills, buy things, or perhaps invest it. The next week you get $500 again.. Same money, just moving from one person to another... you do not get to keep money.

 

There is only about $500 cash for every person in the US... if this is not circulating, then no one is making any money, and everyone is worse off.

 

The faster money moves through the economy, the healthier the economy is. The speed that money goes through an economy is called the Velocity of Money.  Economists can tell how healthy an economy is by measuring the Velocity of Money.

 

The same principle works like blood in a body. If it is not circulating then the body is dead.  If blood isn't moving fast enough, then you are weak and sickly. It can also move too quickly, then it will not have time to affect the cells that it is next to.

 

This is like air in your lungs. If the air is not circulating in and out, then you may have lungs full of air, but you will be dead.

 

Just like everything in life... you keep nothing, you just rent it for a while.  If one person gets nervous, thinking the money may not come back to him, and puts this bill in his pocket... what happens? The game will be over because there is no money moving. Then the economy dies.

 

We need a moderator for the game to keep it going. If one person gets greedy or nervous and puts the money in his pocket the moderator will come over and take the dollar out of the person’s pocket and put it back into circulation. We call this person the tax man.

 

This is what happens when the market crashes. People start to get worried about the market and think that the stocks are over-rated, or they will not get back their money from their stock investment. Then they pull all the money they can out of the system, and put it in their basement, or invest in gold. This causes The Velocity of Money to slow down. This creates further panic and fear that drives the same thing over-and-over again. This leads to a sick and collapsed economy.

 

When the economy collapsed in 2006 because of the fear George Bush wrote a check for 800 billion dollars to reassure people that there was plenty of money and that they should not panic. Where did he get this money from? He got it from nowhere. He just wrote a check for 800 billion dollars and gave it to The Federal Reserve.

 

Several years later The Federal Reserve wrote a check for 800 billion dollars to Obama to pay back the loan. Why did George Bush write a check for 800 billion dollars? Was there 800 billion dollars owed somewhere? During an interview he was asked this question and he responded “Eight hundred billion sounded like a large number.” He realized that people just needed reassurance that there was more than enough money to go around.

 

Several years later when the conservative representative were threatening to shut down the government by not funding projects in order to get their way with their programs that they wanted. Obama threatened to mint a trillion dollar coin and carry it over to the federal reserve which would cover the bills. Where was he going to get the trillion dollars from? He was just going to stamp this number on a coin. The executive branch cannot print cash, but they can mint coins. The senators became frightened and capitulated and started funding the government again.

 

During the several weeks where branches of the government weren’t funded and they couldn’t write paychecks for people they figured that 24 billion dollars was lost. How was this lost? Where did it go? Into a hole? The government projects were eventually funded, and people did receive their past paychecks, but somewhere still 24 billion dollars were lost. This is because money was not circulating, grocery stores, car lots, and mortgages were not paid so these individuals and companies couldn’t pay their bills. This snowballed to become 24 billion dollars.

 

The Mars Rover cost 1.8 billion dollars. Where did that money go? Did it end up on Mars? Was it burned for propulsion of the rocket to get all the way to our neighboring red planet? ...The money stayed here on earth, and went into the pockets of scientists, security guards,and housekeepers of the labs where the rover was created. Those people went home and gave that money to their significant other; they then received a hug and a kiss; the workers kept a little of the money for lunch at work; and then returned to work the next week after cheering the kids at the soccer game over the weekend. The money stayed on earth it didn't go to Mars.

 

They build an airplane worth $20 billion. Is the airplane full of cash? ...No, this was given to the people that built the airplane, which gave it to stores to buy groceries, pay bills, and take the kids out to the movies. The people that worked at the stores and the theaters passed that money onto other people. When this money went through a million people's' hands, the government had at least another $200 billion to spend on a bigger airplane!

 

What about drug dealers, prostitutes, and students that go to school and do not do anything but spend all of their loan money on parties, beer, the opposite sex, and drugs... Where does that money go? It's the same story. They spend their money and it goes right back into the economy! Carefully measuring the health of an economy i.e. The Velocity of Money, these expenditures are good things because goods and services are passed around. When this is happening in an equitable way, everyone gets to eat! The reason the government gives out Food Stamps and Welfare is to stimulate The Velocity of Money.

So how do you increase The Velocity of Money? If you were to walk into the room and threaten everybody to move faster this could increase The Velocity of Money.If you gave everyone a five dollar bill rather than a one dollar bill, this would increase The Velocity of Money. If there were ten one dollar bills, then it would be less dependent on just that one bill moving. This would help increase The Velocity of Money. If each person has more than enough money to cover their basic bills, then they are willing to spend more money because they are not living in fear.

 

The GDP (Gross Domestic Product) is the amount of goods purchased during a year. The more money people spend, the higher the GDP. So when wages are low, the GDP rises slower. When wages are higher, the GDP will increase at a higher rate. The amount of taxes collected by the government depends on the GDP. The more money that is spent, the more money the government will have to cover their bills.

 

At our current velocity of money the government will never be able to pay off the 20 trillion dollar debt. It will be upside down on its loan. If you could double the velocity of money through the economy the National Debt would be paid off in 10 years.. If you tripled the velocity of money then it would be paid off in two years.  Now how could this happen?

 

If we have a federal income of 4 trillion dollars with a budget of 3 trillion dollars. This leaves 1 trillion dollars to pay off the interest and balance of debt. Doubling The Velocity of Money would bring in eight trillion dollars (2 x 4 trillion dollars), minus the three trillion dollars budget... will leave a balance of 5 trillion dollars to pay off the debt. Tripling The Velocity of Money would leave a balance of 9 trillion dollars to pay off the debt. The faster moves through the economy, the more the government can spend, but they will also have more to pay off their debt.

 

It costs about .60 cents to print a dollar bill. How can they afford to do this? Each dollar bill goes through one million people's' hands until it is destroyed and a new one printed. If each hand it touches pays about 10 cents in taxes then this bill has created 100,000 dollars of value to the government.

 

Real Estate

 

Imagine you are on a cruise ship. The ship sinks at sea and you are the only survivor.  You swim to a desert island. The next morning you wake up and look around for things you can live on. The waves have washed up on the shore a suitcase from the wreck. Excitedly you open it up hoping for food or things you can use for your survival (like a ham sandwich). Inside you find $10,000,000 in US currency. What value does this money have for you? Toilet paper? Fire starter? Crumpled it up and maybe make a mattress.... very little value.

 

Now let's say this suitcase has something of "Real Value". I keep hearing money needs to be backed by gold. So there is $10,000,000 worth of gold. Of what value is this to you? Probably even less.

 

I had a friend that was very ambitious. He kept wishing that everything he touched would turn to Gold. A Kindly Fairy took pity on him and appeared to him one day. She told him that from now on everything he touched would turn to gold. And tapped him on his forehead with her Magic Fairy Wand … “Prang!” He was ecstatic!  As he ran around the room everything he touched turned to gold. The chair, the table, the door and everything else. After a while he grew hungry and picked up an apple. It turned to gold. Every piece of food he touched turned to gold. He picked up a glass of water, it turned to gold. His beloved daughter ran into the room and threw her arms around him. She instantly turned into a gold statue. As he lay dying... sobbing, hungry, thirsty and lonely, he realized that gold was not the most valuable thing in the world.

 

The next time someone is trying to tell you gold is the only secure thing.. Remember they want to trade their Gold for your Money..

 

Now let's go back to the island. After about a week you get bored and go exploring. You notice a bluff extending out to the ocean on the island. You are able to get past this bluff. Suddenly you come upon a city with one million people. Now what value does the 10 million dollars have? Quite a bit. What has changed in this equation? The money is still the same. The suitcase is still the same. You are the same… but now you are surrounded by other people. Money only has value when you have other people to give it to. It is like love, you can be full of love, but if you have no-one to give it to, it has less value.

The reason the government takes taxes out of your check is to give you the impression that money has value. You see the deductions that are taken out of your check every week and you become angry because the government has taken something that "belongs to you".  Your employer already takes out an additional 30% out of your check which is paid in taxes to government programs and insurance policies. You never see this, so you never miss it. If they really needed your money and didn't want to offend you, instead of getting a $1000 check with only $700 take-home,  they would just give you a $700 check… and you would never see the $600 dollars the government took from you.  You would have no sense of loss.

 

Imagine a dog sitting next to a stick, ignoring it completely. You reach down and grab this stick and run away from the dog. The stick has taken on a high value for the dog as he will try to chase you and take it from you. Before this, the dog had no interest in the stick. Only when you try to take it from him, did it acquire value.

 

Now imagine a child surrounded by six different toys. He is totally bored, you reach down and grab one of the toys, and take it to the other side of the room. You now have his total attention and he starts crying because you have taken something from him.

 

You have a garage full of crap that you have not used in years. You are too lazy or preoccupied to clean it up and make a run to the dump. One day you wake up and notice that someone has broken into the garage and taken your things. You become very angry and feel a great sense of loss. How could anyone do this to you? …yet you haven't touched any of the objects in the garage for decades. Now that someone else has taken them from you, it has escalated their value. Humans always want what others take from them.

 

Your girlfriend has just dumped you. She told you that she wants to "just be friends." You say that you understand… no problem. So you don't call or talk to her for a month. She finds out that you had lunch with a very beautiful woman. None of your friends would be upset over this.Yet she is livid even though she said she wanted to be one of your friends. She calls you and says "Who is that person that you went out with?!?!" She still does not like you, but she is upset because she feels that another woman has taken something from her. You had no value until someone else wanted you.

 

The reason why the government taxes you is because it wants you to think that the money that you are working for, slaving for, trading your time for, sacrificing your family for… has true value.  Abraham Lincoln was able to pay for the entire Civil War by printing Greenback Dollars. Of course the bankers became upset with him because he did not borrow money from them. As we all know he died soon thereafter. After this event, all presidents have been protected by The Secret Service. The original purpose of The Secret Service was to protect our money supply… and it still is.  Then Kennedy was going to print five dollar silver certificates, and he died within months after this plan as he was being protected by The Secret Service.

 

Money is a figment of your imagination. It is just a token that we pass from one person to the other that shows how much we appreciate their service or existence. When your grandkids have a birthday, you may send them a twenty or one-hundred dollar bill to let them know how much you appreciate and love them. When you buy food from a farmer, you give him bills (money) to let him know how much you appreciate his hard work and effort. When you go to work and produce things for your employer, he again gives you tokens of his appreciation for your hard work and effort (money).

 

All of these activities could take place without money, but as part of The Human Condition we are always constantly worried that one person isn't carrying their full load. We need to see tokens or certificates that they possess, so that we are assured that they are acting with full responsibility. We do not have time to observe them 24/7, so when we see tokens or certificates, we feel assured that they are doing their share.

 

If you are still having a hard time understanding How Money works, let's look at this example

 

First example is a closed loop system. A closed loop system is like an air tight room and you are locked inside by a serial killer who is holding you for ransom... he does not want you to die as he will not get the ransom, but he wants to make sure that your life is threatened if he is arrested or captured. To keep you alive everyday you are given an air bottle with enough oxygen so you live for one day. When this runs out you will die. You only get one bottle every 24 hours. You must be conservative with your breathing until the next bottle. You cannot afford to exercise or have lots of movement as this will burn too much oxygen and you will die before the next bottle shows up.

 

Compare this to an Open Loop System. This is like a person running in the woods that does not worry about oxygen. When the runner breathes out carbon dioxide, the plants respire the carbon dioxide back to oxygen.  It is impossible to run out of oxygen. The more you consume, the more there is.  

 

A home economy is more like a Closed Loop System. Only so much money comes in every week. If you spend more than you take in, you die financially. You must become conservative with your spending to make it last until the next paycheck.  If you do not, eventually you will go bankrupt, and be kicked out of your box.  

 

A government is like an Open Loop System. You do not need to worry about spending money, because the more you spend the money, the more people have to make purchases and you receive more back through taxes that are paid by the consumers. When the government spends money they end up getting more than they spend because the money passes through hundreds of people taxing each of them as it is passed. Just as running in the woods you do not need to worry about more oxygen coming back to you as there is an unlimited supply. In a worldwide economy there is even more money as the more they spend the more that there is.  You cannot compare government debt to a household debt. These two scenarios do not match. Your household is a Closed Loop System, and the national government is an Open Loop System.

 

There are city governments, state governments .. country governments.. world governments.. The larger the government, the more it is like an Open Loop System… If you put a huge coal fired plant in the middle of the forest that puts out more carbon than the forest could  return oxygen back to you. One coal fired plant is not going to overwhelm all of the forests. If you have too many coal fired plants then it can overwhelm a forest.

 

As with too many coal fired plants, it can be overwhelming on the people if the governments were to spend more than the population can absorb. If you gave every person $100,000 per year, this would not imbalance the economy.  If you gave every person one trillion dollars all of a sudden then this would confuse the world economy.  People’s imaginations are not yet ready for this kind of surge of money.

 

As with carbon, water, and oxygen...Money is not created, it is circulated. The only way a government could create more water would be to bring an ice asteroid into the ocean so there is a large amount of water onto the planet. This would raise the sea level and create havoc for those living next to the ocean.

 

Water comes from The Water Cycle. It rains in the mountains and water comes down the river. You drink the water, and then you pee the water into the sewer. The sewer eventually runs into the ocean and the water evaporates from the ocean to form rain clouds  which blow onto the mountains, and the cycle begins again.

 

So the larger the system, the more it can absorb changes. When scientists built Biosphere 2, it was not able to sustain eight people because it was a closed loop system. It was difficult to maintain the water and oxygen cycle because this was a closed loop system.

 

Even though this was on a half an acre per person. One of the reasons the experiment did not succeed was that they got on each others’ nerves. There is more to life than food, oxygen, water and a cozy temperature. We need interaction with a wide variety of people, and we need to be able to get away from some of them on occasions. We also need to spend more time with ones of our choosing on some occasions. The larger the system is, the easier it is to do this.

 

Our planet can sustain over 100 billion people easily, as it is more an Open Loop System. Our universe can sustain an infinite amount of people. There is no shortage of resources. There is no shortage of land. There is no shortage of air. There is no shortage of verses. Some people live in a multiverse. Some people live in a universe What is a verse? ...A verse is a paragraph ...A complete thought. A universe is one thought, one paragraph to explain everything. A multiverse is many thoughts… many paragraphs to explain everything. Are you stuck in a box? The only way that we will know if you are living or dead is to open the box.

 

Should you be more Conservative or be more Liberal? If we are Conservative then we keep resources to ourselves. If we are Liberal then we circulate our resources which will be passed on to others. Just like the money that we receive every week functions best when we give it to others. They in turn pass it on to even more people. This money eventually comes back to us and is recirculated. If you are living in a Closed Loop you need to be more Conservative. If you are living in an Open Loop system you need to be more Liberal.  

 

You cannot compare a family’s spending habits with the spending habits of a large government or corporation.

 

Scarcity

 

The Lizard Brain is dealing with fear and scarcity, it does not understand social interaction. The Lizard Brain confuses an Open Loop Economy with its own small world view of its micro-economy. A lizard is usually only aware of a few hundred square feet of territory. It is not aware of a volcano called Krakatoa on the other side of the world. Fear mongers will go on cable news channels and broadcast fear and scarcity. Are you living in Open Loop or a Closed Loop System. Are you living in The Lizard Brain or The God Brain?

 

Recently I heard about a problem that our country is going through. 30,000 children came into the country to escape wars, poverty, and death threats. I keep hearing that we don't have enough funds to take care of these children. This reminds me of another incident in the past…

 

In 1947 three million undocumented children showed up in the United States. They had no ability to take care of themselves; they were uneducated; couldn't speak english; needed housing; 24/7 care; and they needed someone to change their diapers. What happened to the economy in 1947? Also the national debt in 1947 adjusted for inflation was 100 trillion dollars. ...And the tax rate for the ultra-wealthy was 90%.

 

What was the condition of the economy from 1947 to 1983? This was the period ruled and dominated by the baby boomers. This generation was the most prosperous, well educated, and influential group of people ever in the world. Schools were built, teachers were hired, homes were built, and construction workers were hired. The economy was fantastic: plenty of jobs, plenty of money for schools and libraries, charities were well funded, and The Velocity of Money was moving at a high rate.

 

The more things that need to be taken care of, the more money circulates. The more money that circulates, the more money everyone else has.  Wealthy people put their money in their basement in a vault or in their offshore bank account. Poor people will spend their money instantly. This is why ultra-wealthy people slow down the economy when they have the money. Poor people will speed up the economy when they have money.

 

When you save money you either put it in a box in your house, you put it in a bank, or you buy government bonds. If you put it in a box in your house, it destroys the velocity of money. You could always buy gold with it, which would be the same thing as putting it in a box in your house because gold is not circulating. If you put it in a bank, then the bank can loan out $100 for every dollar that you put in. A bank will also charge interest on the money that they loan to others. Both of these actions loans and interest can create inflation. If you buy government bonds, they are normally used for war where homes, houses, and people are destroyed, this causes inflation and is a horrible waste of energy and time. Imagine that you go to a bank and you want to borrow 100k to fix up your home. They will say “No problem.” What if you told your bank that you wanted 100k to purchase explosives so that you could destroy your home. They would not give you the money. This is why war even though it creates jobs, it also destroys value in the economy.  

 

Inflation is accelerated by greedy people. A senator was interviewing some restaurant owners on increasing the minimum wage (increasing wages from $7.50 to $12.00 per hour). At McDonald's a seven dollar Big Mac Meal would increase by 7 cents. One of the restaurant owners spoke up and said "but my meals at my restaurant cost $15!" The senator then said, "Then you would have to raise your meal by 15 cents." The restaurant owner responded "If I have to charge 15 cents more, then I will charge $5 more."  There was no need for them to charge $5 more, except for The Human Condition. The owner wanted to feel superior to the employees. He could have just charged 25 cents more and still have a profit. The inflation to pay people almost double their wages would have been one percent… a very low inflation rate. If they kept it up every year to keep up with the cost of living, this would only add .01% inflation to the economy.

 

It is only greed and avarice that is causing inflation. If you were to give each person a million dollar income every year, this would upset the economy. As the economy would not be able to handle the increase. A million dollar income is a 2000% increase and this would create chaos.

 

Everyone's imagination would not be able to deal with the change. An example, if you were able to give 20 times the food per day, their health would go down hill. Another example is when you have starving children in a country, you cannot walk in and give them tons of food instantly. You have to gradually increase the food intake, so that their bodies can handle it.

 

Currently, 50% of everything that we eat and consume, wear, drive, live in is made by robots. Within 5 years 100% of everything will be made by robots. Even robots will be made by robots. So what will humans do? How will they earn money? There will be no jobs! There will be no way to earn a paycheck!

 

So how will humans have money to buy things? There will be an abundance as there will be an endless supply of food, housing, and transportation available. There will be no need to work for money. You will only have to understand The Human Condition.

 

Wealth Inequality


A good income is when you earn 10% more than your wife's sister's husband.

There is plenty of money to go around.

If you criticize the poor and you do not live in poverty, you are a snob.

 

A group of friends are visiting. They put all the kids in one room with toys to play, so the adults can visit in peace… After a while, an adult hears screaming and fighting.  The adult enters the room and one child has taken all the toys.  What would the wise or responsible adult do? You got it, they redistribute the toys…. but who put the toys in the room? They were put there by the parents. None of these children have earned the toys. The toys were there to be shared. All of the resources on the planet earth were not put their by any group of individuals. They were put there to be shared by the inhabitants. For one person to hog all of the resources is just as foolish as the child who hogs all of the toys.

 

Experimenters put two monkeys in a lab, each was in a separate cage next to the other. The scientists gave them carrots for a few minutes as a reward for a completion of a task. They then handed one monkey a grape and the other monkey a carrot. The monkey that got the carrot became very angry, and threw the carrot back at the scientist to show his disgust at being mistreated.  As the scientist continued to give one monkey a grape and the other a carrot, the one that received carrots became more angry. Monkeys have a very sensitive sense of equality and justice.

 

Would this be any different for humans? When there is a gross inequality of paycheck or wealth from one person to the other people become frustrated. One of the worst things that happened in our economy was Robin Leach’s “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous”. When Leach showed lavish properties and luxuries other wealthy people realized that they were not the “wealthiest.” They were just getting fancy carrots and the other “rich” people were getting grapes. So the mediocre wealthy people started squeezing the blood out of the workers in order to reach the level of the super wealthy.

 

Similarly, thinking this would lower the salaries of CEOs, the government in 1969 forced corporations to publicly post the salaries of the CEOs. They hoped this would shame the CEOs into taking a smaller salary because of the public uproar over their ridiculous salaries. This backfired as when the lower paid CEOs realized others made more than them they insisted on a higher salary.

 

Alpha was the leader of the wolf pack that had five wolves: Thumb, Pointer, Middle, Ring, and Pinky. Alpha had it all, the bitches (...Middle, Ring, Pinky),  the respect  (he always kept a lookout for the hyenas), and strength (he could break an elephant's skull with his paws). Alpha was the leader of the hunt and the pack brought home twenty elk of nearly identical appearance. Alpha took fifteen elk for himself and gave the rest of the pack, each one for themselves.  The next season the pack had the exact same success.  Alpha decided that because of his proof of leadership, he'd take sixteen elk and leave four for the rest of the pack to divide among themselves.  Alpha was outcasted from his pack. Why would they do that to him?

 

In order to solve this problem of inequality, researchers have found that you need to make the difference of the salary between the average paid worker and the CEO no more than 15 - 20 times. Currently in our economies this is modeled poorly.  The difference of a salary of a broom pusher and the CEO in many companies is between 2000-5000 times.   In an ideal situation if the CEO wanted more money, he would have to raise the wages of the broom pushers.  If the CEO wants to make a million dollars a year, how much would the broom pushers need to be paid? Congratulations if you got the answer… the broom pusher gets paid 50k-66k/year.

 

The countries that rate in the top ten of The Happiness Index have this in their legislation. In some countries they limit the CEO no more than 15-20 times the average wage. In other countries they just tax the shit out of incredible high wage earners. As you know money is a lot like shit. If you keep it in one spot it will rot and stink. If you spread it around everything grows!

 

You can still have wealthy people that make more money, but you would have to be the owner of the company, or inherit wealth from your parents. This would still become very difficult to acquire huge sums of money compared to the rest of the population. With the inheritance tax it could take 400 years to amass a large sum of money within a family. Normally when money is inherited the children will spend the money and it usually disappears within two generations. Once the family trust loses control over the money, it is very difficult to hold onto of large sums. This is a good thing because it insures that money circulates in the economy.

 

There is no shortage in the world at this point. If all of the oil was brought to the surface of the world it would be an ocean 21 miles deep.  If you were to take all of the energy from the portion of Zero Point Energy Field that one hydrogen atom occupies, you could create our own universe one billion times over. E=mc2 or m=E/c2, so in order to create matter it takes a huge amount of energy to produce a very small amount  of matter.  There is so much energy in this miniscule amount of Zero Point Energy that converting this energy to matter could create all of the matter in our entire universe, one billion times over.  All the stars, planets,, galaxies, black holes… one billion times over! We are surrounded by this energy field. Boundless unlimited energy is all around us.  To really understand this you need to take classes in Physics, Chemistry, and Biology.

 

The urine from one cow can produce enough hydrogen to heat the hot water for three homes.! Urea, using a very low voltage will release Hydrogen that can power your car or heat your home… it makes road trips much simpler… no pit stops!!! If everyone was to put a septic tank to collect the waste from your house, it would produce enough methane that could heat your house cook your food, and power a generator with all of the electricity that you could possibly need.

 

We have the technology to build Rockets for everyone. We are a time with 3D printers that can print themselves.

 

Currently robots are making a large percent of the products that we need. They are building cars homes, driving tractors on farms, driving buses semis and taxi cabs. Robots are performing surgeries, diagnosing illness, and keeping track of patient medications. They winning lawsuits, organizing government, and providing customer support. These robots speak over 28 languages, and can mimic accents, emotions, and dialects of these languages.

 

The question that is important to ask is… what are we going to do now that the robots are doing everything? How are we going to get a paycheck? Many countries today are giving their citizens a guaranteed paycheck. Where is this money going to come from? The answer to this lies in understanding How Money Works and The Human Condition.

 

Money as a Power Tool

 

What keeps humans from distributing resources is The Human Condition.  In The Human Condition people are trying to be more powerful or better than others. There are three inescapable ways that we will be seeking higher status as humans as long as we are human.  The first part of The Human Condition is The Devil or The Gossip State.  In The Devil State, people put each other down to make themselves more powerful.  The second part is called the Human State.  Here a person works as hard as possible to achieve for themselves...fanciest car, clothing, stuff, etc...  The third part of The Human Condition is The God State.  In The God State a person helps another out by getting down to their level. We do not want to confuse empathy and sympathy when we are in The God State.  Empathy gets its arms scratched and bitten by bugs to help another out of metaphoric trenches, where sympathy will ditch you for a metaphoric ballet or a football game. Empathy is more in The God State where sympathy is more in The Human State.  All human life is a combination of those three states. Which State of The Human Condition would you like to live in more?

 

In The Human Condition people are always concerned if others are beneath them, on the same level as we are, or if they are superior to us. We use tokens or certificates to establish their position in society. If we want to become better than others, we can make sure that they have fewer tokens or certificates than we have. We can work hard to produce and acquire more tokens and certificates than others have… or we can make sure others around us have adequate tokens and certificates… and they will look up to us as Gods or Goddesses.

 

You do not need more Money, just more Imagination!

 

Money is not an object. It has very little or no intrinsic value.  When you cut out a coupon out of a newspaper, it says "One Dollar Off (our product)" You will notice, it has a disclaimer that says the real value of this coupon is .002 cents. The token or dollar bill itself has no real value. An apple has real value... a house has real value (that is why it is called real estate). Having dollar bills and with no-one to trade with for products or services is a vain and worthless endeavor. The only thing that has real value is other humans and interacting with other humans. The most valuable thing is the time people share with each other. Your child would rather have your time than your money.

 

Researchers have been looking to find what causes people to live beyond 100 years. At first they studied DNA and realized it had little relation to longevity. The next thing they studied was health care, this had a stronger correlation. The next thing that they studied was large amounts of money and again this only allowed the person better medical care, but it was not the driving force for longevity. Many incredibly wealthy people die in their 60s.

 

The only thing they found that resonated across the board was social connections that these older people had. The stronger the social connections was the main driver of longevity. Why are we concentrating on money as the solution to illness when our social connections are far more important? Amassing large sums of money will help people act like they like you, but they will stab you in the back literally or metaphorically at the first opportunity.

 

Why are we working so hard? Why are we so concerned about collecting and hoarding something that has no value within itself. You can compare it to the TV show "Hoarders" where people acquire possessions over many years that pile up in their homes and fill up every square inch of their house up to the ceiling! How do they solve their problems? They take all of the shit out of the house and throw it away.

 

Money is much like shit.  If you have a big pile of it, it will continue to smell really bad. It will rot if you keep it in one place, and you will have a big pile of shit, lots of flies, maggots, and no-one will want to be around you that you care for. If you spread it around as you would manure in a garden, then everything will grow! Money is just like this. The more that it is spread equally in the garden, the more things will grow.

 

You may have noticed a dead spot on your lawn that came from an animal taking a shit on your lawn. Too much shit in one location kills everything. If you look at the grass several inches away from the shit, it is taller and healthier than the rest of the grass. This is why amassing too much money in one location or with one person hinders the growth of the economy. Remember that whatever you want in life that you must give away.
