Money and the Universe from Nothing: Is it Right?

Dollar Handcuffs

Although I was raised under the doctrines of the Roman Catholic Church, and respectful thereof - as I am with all other peaceful religions of the world, I do not consider myself to be particularly "religious," but rather a logical skeptic, and persistent seeker of empirical truth in every realm.

Since I typically keep rather abreast to such matters of import, I'm quite surprised that I did not catch wind of this newly presented scientific knowledge, which by initial accounts became widely available to the public through a motion picture titled "The Principle," theatrically released in 2014.

Stumbling upon it of late was quite the revelation, and raised for me the following 3 questions:

  1. How vastly better might the world have evolved if the concept of Earth as the center of the Universe remained humankind's foundational understanding of reality? Along similar lines, how vastly better might the world have evolved if Gold and Silver remained as the bedrock foundation of the financial universe?

  2. What would happen to societal paradigms, and those of modern religion, politics, and the ivory towers of academia if they were forced to admit they are wrong, and that there is indeed far more scientific evidence in support of the Earth's location and its inhabitants being extraordinarily special, and indeed at the center of the Universe, as opposed to the concept of the big-bang theory, which places Earth and its inhabitance at no particularly special place in the cosmos?

  3. How would the vast majority of people react to the revelation, which in direct opposition to the common knowledge they were indoctrinated with from birth, calling upon their logic and reason to embrace instead, the rather plausible notion that the Earth is indeed motionless, and does NOT spin on its axis, nor does it revolve around the Sun?

My thoughts in closing:

If one blindly accepts the notion that "something" can indeed be effectively created from "nothing," (as it is with our present system of money, debt, and our current societal beliefs as to the creation of the universe) one must then inevitably conclude that the products of such notions and all its derivatives are insignificant, worthless, and destined for ultimate failure.

It is time to radically change the way in which we think about, question, and interact with each other and with the world in which we live - because this Earth, and all of us born from it, are far more significant than we are otherwise led to believe.
