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?

Chance

You came to be
You are
Chance

A meeting
Another meeting
Meetings of meetings

The ubiquitous butterfly
Flaps it’s wing
Forms from me

And she
Oh what wonder
To be

Your chance
Our chance
A chance

Jobs and growth

You all digress

why is jobs and growth the goal of society would be a better question

jobs and growth lead to more growth, to greater GDP, for a more equal basis for which to consume.

Basically, if you have a job you can buy shit

is the shit you buy good for society, the environment,

If you are consuming the world at an unsustainble rate, how can this be good?

did you go from working 3 days a week to,
both parents full time
with the kiddies in day care,
Paying the cost of jobs and growth?

dont look to your politicians for answers
all they promise is more

jobs and growth

Theconversation II

Evening, you are of course correct that the market, in itself, is simply an efficient medium by which to exchange, the work done by increasing entropy.

Money, the medium of exchange, is now digital, existing as a construct. So what will you tell your child when they ask where monies come from? Is it like the milk from the store, does money come from banks?

As the medium of exchange, every transaction phases through money. Money is work, an expression of the ability to do work. Work is energy. The entire capitalistic venture is built upon the ability to make a transaction to exchange energy.

The market however, does not judge the value of a thing, based on the amount of energy consumed. The value of the thing, is dependent on demand, the want for a thing, the expectation that a thing can gain you a profit. Therefore the actual exchange of money is not a pure exchange of energy.

So money, in a non-fiat world, becomes a representation of the willingness to pay for a thing that has consumed energy. It in no way represents the potential energy of the thing itself.

In such a way has bitcoin gained value, it consumes a prodigious amount of energy and yet has no physical potential to do work. Bitcoin is postmodern money in a false economy. Based on short term demand and the assumption that the energetic economy can continue infinitely within a finite world.

Numbers (1)

We are betting our entire future.
Pensionan oil funds,
on bargain hunts for capital growth

The numbers tell us,
we haven’t yet encountered
any energetic limits.

The market democracy
does not make (formal) plans,
for a liquid fuel supply deficit

And so it fails,
to plan for the future.
And so it fails.
