The Gold Standard, Chemical Weddings, & the Journey of Zero Distance

The heroic journey usually entails a quest for an object of
highest value. In spiritual language, the object is
enlightenment. In alchemical terms, enlightenment is the recovery of our
true "stellar" nature, the real gold, an "undivided mind." It is more than just a poetic metaphor that the unearthed gold which completes this transformation is sourced primordially in the cataclysmic union of
stars.

the future. But a gradual transition would be better than picking up the pieces in a post-apocalyptic
world.

Economic abstractions keep
functioning only so long as actual goods and services exist to be bought and

neglected. In the end the realities trickle away unnoticed, until a shock of
some kind strikes the tower of abstractions built atop the void the realities
once filled, and the whole structure tumbles to the ground.

Sumerian Economics

About 3100 BC, writing was invented at
Uruk, Sumer.
Writing both is
and represents the new "Creation"
ideology. It wipes out the oral tradition of the Stone Age and erases the
collective memory of a time before hierarchy. In the text we have always been slaves.
