Letter: Hey buddy, ya got a dime?

One of the keys to a civilization is currency. It’s the ability to exchange goods and services on a more convenient time relationship. However, few people truly comprehend what money really is. The ONLY true “money” is calories. All the rest either actually represents it or falsely pretends to. The latter is called FIAT. (Money, where a government only states that is valuable. A.K.A. the current dollar) Simply put, the universe has a finite amount of calories. It is the conversion of it into energy that creates the movement of services done or products created.

The human body is a calorie conversion machine. The sun gives energy to the earth which in-turn helps plants convert it to calories that the consuming human then converts to work. So a human is the only true civilization “bank.” Calories can also be stored in forms like oil or animals. While humans use them to leverage their work efforts, there is still no more or less of it. It can only be converted and then released back into the universe for its next cycle.

To better leverage the offset timing between provider and consumer, money — in the agreed upon form of gold and silver — was used to represent it. They took calories to obtain, were hard to find — thus finite, were practically indestructible and universally recognized. However, soon things went wrong as usual. Paper was eventually used to represent gold, that in-turn represented calories. Paper can be easily made and thus counterfeited even by governments. It was soon quietly disconnected from the metals and produced in amounts far exceeding any calorie reality whatsoever, as is now being done.

The dollar is basically now worthless. This process has been repeated with almost every major civilization, with the same ending, inflation and finally lack of all confidence in it. America is now at this point. By forcing the oil producing nations after WWII to trade only in U.S. dollars, the stage was set for the biggest, illegal and unethical transfer of wealth in history. The US. has now produced the most worthless and most massive currency ever made, and forced the world to use it. In parallel with numerous other schemes, the rich and powerful have cemented their positions for the next change of global humanity. This change is in process and most of the world’s citizens are not invited to it.
