The whole economic system is based on an elaborate set of fictions.

I’ll give you real world example.
I have a house. I have a mortgage with a bank.
At the time I got the mortgage, I had a high paying job as a systems analyst. I built up my credit. I played with the stock market and did well while I
was there. I saved 53% of my post-tax income. All easy. All doable.

All a game.

I got the mortgage. I’m in the house. The bank owns it. I pay the bank, because they fronted a loan for the builders to build the house. Mortgages are fundamentally building loans.

Now, since the time I got the house and moved here, I was no longer in that job. I no longer have that income. I no longer have that credit.

Yet, I’m in the house.

We manage to pay month to month.

And you know what?

It’s a fiction. It’s ALL a fiction. Not just me. Not just here. The whole economic system is based on an elaborate set of fictions.

When REALITY hits? And we have to see things as they *really* are – what’s left?

Us. Stuff. Skills. Coordination or lack thereof. Sharing or lack thereof.

HUMANS are the currency. They always have been. Do animals have economies? Perhaps. But they’re on a different system than ours.
