Time & Money, Money & Time


Time equals money.

Time is a concept that was created by humans.  We have broken it down into a series of symbols all in the desire to place our need for order on top of it.  Yet, there are those among us who believe that everything throughout our concept of time is happening at the same moment.  This could mean that time itself would be a bit of a misnomer.

Money is also a concept created by humans.  This one we have broken down into a system of symbols to equate work done with some value outside of our everyday needs.  In today’s world we have a gone step further and replaced the symbol for value of time (gold, silver, etc) with valueless symbols (bills, bonds, stocks, etc) that represents a promise of the actually valuable symbol.

Both Time and Money were created to provide order to our daily lives and to provide value to the time used in our daily lives. But in the end they are just symbols and actually have no intrinsic value in and of themselves.

So Time may equal Money but a concept equaling a concept built into that concept still comes out to actually equalling nothing.

But it sure is nice to have a pocketful of symbols that you can hold onto for a future concept.
