Value III

I am not so sure Sonny, most business models disregard the energetic input available to reproduce cyberspace and consumption.

Advertising simply uses natural resources to promote the further use of natural resources. If natural resources are limited, and I can assure you they are, then the business model actually has no social or environmental value.

That is to say the value is purely speculative, and subject to the ability to produce paper/digital profits from the increased use of natural resources.

Our value system is increasingly based on securing short term profits through longer term destruction. Those that profit promote this as a belief which many buy into because the religiosity doesn’t mention the side effects.

Collectively the human race is addicted to a system that promotes anthropogenic egotistical value above life itself. For example, the industry of war is increasingly valuable even though we know the implications.

Value II

The valuation of goods is based on rarity, as perceived through an anthropomorphic veil.

True value, can only be represented as the energetic costs of their production.

The work required to extract and consume minerals is worthless unless repeatable. I will make reference to a greater wisdom than mine:

Only when the last tree has died and the last river been poisoned and the last fish been caught will we realise we cannot eat money

We are caught in a logical fallacy, a religious belief that the means of production represent value, when in fact they largely represent destruction of real value, in the consumption of life itself.

Value

Just wait until they find out, the true value of Facebook and snapchat like things.

All they have to sell is consumption, the goal of which seems to be the destruction of the natural world.

What a ignominious goal for humanity, to worship growth until we run out.

As Plato said, they see but the shadows of things, not the things themselves.

Tulips

While it may be rational motive to seek to secure personal profit, it is actually totally irrational to pay a high price for something when the value of the the thing is based on irrationalities.

A tulip has no physical value other than as an ornament, can’t eat it, can’t smoke it, can’t use it to do work.

The only value a tulip held was its ability to increase in mercantile value through mass suggestion.

The rationale, that mass suggestion represents truth, is the very definition of irrationally.

It is what the market uses to convince people that they do not need to worry that the planet is warming, that natural resources and energy are depleting at accelerating rates.

If you didn’t consume, someone else would profit from your lack of consumption.

The main motivating factor of the stultocracy.

A fractional reserve

Money is debt,
created by government bonds,
and/or fractional reserve banking,
essentially the same thing.

since decoupling from the gold
Standard money is fiat
the value ascribed an indication
of the confidence of the market
in the medium of exchange

To goal being to siphon a proportion.
Due the ‘inventor’ of the investment opportunity.
Converting a substantial proportion of manufactured debt,
into personal worth.
Is to goal, for every good capitalist.

Even better, if you can.
Leverage the feel good factor,
associated with sustainability.
Seeming to mean,
use everything today before it runs out,
because of the collective investment in debt.

Blackholes

So, let us imagine there is energy,
outside of the system,
On a different mass or pressure gradient
Outside of space would be
the area that space has expanded into

The expansion of space would
Cause this system to push back
Hey bitch
You are making your space out of my space
Even if in a different dimension

Like adolescent space pimples
The energy in the space being expanded into
Would find weaknesses in the bubble
The differential existential pressure
would burst at galactic size

If space is expanding into temporal dimensions
if a black hole is the energetic equivalent of a pressure gradient,
changing the energy of mass,
what is it changing in to?
