Real wealth is between your ears; put that in your cognitive domain. In the beginning was the word and from cognition grew hydrogen, water, zircons, diamonds, gold, silver, and finally (?) humankind, created in the image of God having cognition and words, naming and categorizing and going to the moon and one Alexander Hamilton devised an American system of credit economy whereby the recognition of value was credit based on a man's word. "I promise to build a levee with paper money you give to me, I give workmen paper money to build the levee, agricultural production ensues, industrial production increases, wealth is created in the production of more human population with brains. This is real wealth. We may use gold, silver, paper simply as a convenient medium of exchange but our real wealth is between your ears. Feed it, shelter it, educate it. "Do you love Me? Feed My sheep."
