Money is a form of currency that has several intrinsic attributes that make it totally unsuitable for any High Energy Society<*>.

  • Money is transferable, and therefore can be traded, gambled, stolen, or used as a bribe.
  • Money is scarce, and thus can never provide all the needs of a society regardless of whether they have the resources or not.
  • Money is not physically measurable. It is based on the inherently unstable idea of value and thus makes the lives of citizens and the society itself, unstable.
