The world of finance and economics reveals insanity at the highest level IMO. For those of us who live in the NOW, the world of money and value reveals human ‘insanity’ and ‘mental illness’ at an extreme level. Let’s explore this ‘insanity’ further. Where is money (in reality)? In reality, there is no such ‘thing’ as money within our material world. Yet people and leaders clamor for this ‘non-thing’ (this unit of our ‘inner’ self) with such zeal and determination. Why?


Today, we live with mere ‘math’ (numbers) as our money. Numbers are units of our imagination (our ‘inner’ self) and have no value or significance for our basic survival needs. I don’t need ‘numbers’ for my eating, health, transportation, or for my daily activities. I just need my survival food, clothing, essential activities, and my social relationships to enjoy life. Money is a creation of our power-hungry elites who desire to RULE over us. Think on this! Why do we have MONEY?


Money does not ‘exist’ within nature as a ‘thing’ (matter). It is merely a ‘word’ and this ‘word’ gets transitioned into ‘numbers’ (today). My checking account has ‘numbers’. My savings account has ‘numbers’. My investment accounts have mere ‘numbers’. All these ‘numbers’ are mere MATH which bankers create from their inner self (consciousness). The entire game of money revolves around this ‘inner’ self which we call our MIND. My ‘mind’ is part of my ‘inner’ self and all my MATH concepts are part of my ‘inner’ self.


So let’s boil down this concept called MONEY to mere MATH (numbers). Imaginary ‘numbers’ rule over us and our elites want us to BELIEVE that math and numbers should control us (forever). This is insanity at the highest level. Controlling behavior of people with MATH and numbers is insanity IMO. But this is what is happening in this world of finance and economics which everyone thinks is so important. It’s actually mental illness and insanity! Our world of economics is insane!


Then we have this concept called VALUE. We supposedly measure ‘value’ as we buy and sell our production. But what is this concept called ‘value’ in reality (the NOW)? Where is this concept called ‘value’? This concept is a pure ‘inner’ concept of our MIND. It does not derive from my brain or from any activity within our material universe. Value does not exist in nature. VALUE is an ‘inner’ concept which we express subjectively. It is mere EMOTION related to some product, service, or activity. There is no objective ‘thingness’ behind this inner concept.


Think of the recent Hail Mary pass of quarterback Case Keenum, Minnesota Vikings, yesterday. The Vikings beat the Saints with one Hail Mary pass with 10 seconds on the clock in the fourth quarter. This subjective activity (a mere throwing of a ball) now gives Case bargaining power (called ‘value’) to receive more money (math/numbers) for this subjective Hail Mary result within this sport called football. Value (this emotion) gets monetized (in the millions of units) with new math/numbers (called money). What else results from this concept called ‘value’?


The foundation of finance and economics is this concept called VALUE. Prices derive from this inner concept. Value and price is what we witness when we buy these crypto currencies called Bitcoin, etc. People bid on these imaginary coins living in cyberspace to give them this EMOTION called VALUE enhancement. Money and Value are what everyone seems to chase to further their egos, their power, and their control over others. It’s a GAME of insanity when viewed with logic and wisdom. Mental illness would also apply to this inner GAME called ‘valuation’ and ‘money’ creation.


We live in a world of insanity where buyers, sellers, power brokers, banksters, traders, and the general public clamor for more illusions of the inner self. Money is mere Math (today). Value is merely an Emotion (today). It’s all subjective and INNER. Economics, however, should be based upon wealth production and the actual needs of people. Wealth production consists of MATERIAL goods. Economics started with this mindset. Today, however, we are living with illusions, deceptions, misconceptions, and pervasive lies. Insanity has replaced sound thinking and objective reality.


Is it time to replace our current system of insanity? Is it time to recognize that Math and Emotion does not lead to a world of prosperity, happiness, and peace? Economics is now a profession of those with mental illness and absurdities. Could it be improved so that everyone can benefit from our resources and creativity? I think so! We need, however, to get back to FIRST PRINCIPLES. What is the purpose of economics? Why has the world gone insane over false understandings of reality? This is a new question for the reader of this missive. THINK for  yourself! I am:
