"To gold we owe the division of labor and thus also the cultural goods we enjoy. But to gold we owe again that of the created goods by far the largest part, and indeed the best, falls prey to parasitism. For gold is the father of capitalism. Thanks to its physical (precious metal) and legal privileges (legal tender), gold money occupies an exceptional position among the goods whose exchange depends on money. Gold money has therefore also become a general means of saving, and the saver does not give it back again unless he is promised interest. Sooner or later, however, all money which the state puts into circulation as a medium of exchange is forfeited to the treasury of some saver, so that, in turn, all money in circulation comes out of the savings banks, i.e. enters the market charged with interest, in order to fulfill its function as a medium of exchange. This double use of money as a medium of exchange and as a means of saving is of an opposite nature and must be regarded as an abuse of the medium of exchange. Because only interest-bearing money is available for the exchange of goods, interest becomes the precondition for the production of goods in general. According to Proudhon, money places itself at the gates of the markets, of the stores, of the factories, of every "capital investment" (should mean monetary investment) and does not let through anything that does not pay or cannot pay the interest.
Thus, with gold and the division of labor, the great disturber of peace, interest, came into the world at the same time. The division of labor in itself does not require interest. Who should pay interest, and why? The division of labor should have brought general prosperity to the people, since it is not a privilege of individuals, but accessible to all people. But from the hands of the gold mankind received this god power only under the condition of the interest, and with it also the separation of man into poor and rich. As if envious gods would not have grudged mankind the increase of power, would have feared the declaration of independence of mankind from the divine bondage and would have prevented it by implanting the interest as a splitting fungus in the human family according to the principle "divide and rule"! Gold does not permit general national prosperity. It comes out on strike, it fails its services, when it has to do with free men. It wants masters and servants; troubled, overworked men on the one hand and parasites on the other. There is an inner contradiction in the desire that gold should place itself at the disposal of a free, proud and truly self-ruling people. Gold money and a free people are incompatible. On the very first day of its appearance, gold, using the elemental powers which men bestowed upon it by the transmission of the properties of money, enforces the division of mankind into workers and epicures.
And with this division of mankind into a sweating, cursing, working class on the one hand, and into parasitic epicures on the other, the education of man into the petty, malicious, envious Alberich, into the criminal being, which we meet everywhere at every turn in the history of the millennia, also begins. Gold has been made our great ally economically, but at the same time it has become the arch-enemy of the human family. Gold automatically creates the economic conditions that oppose the establishment of God's kingdom on earth. Apart from gold, Christianity cannot gain a foothold in the human family."
Silvio Gesell (from "The Natural Economic Order through Freeland and Free Money," 1916)
It may have been coincidence in some cases that the people of earlier times used pieces of gold they found in nature as money. But it is certainly no coincidence that the halfway civilized mankind remained so stupid over more than three millennia to use gold money (i.e. interest money) and that the today's paper money was aped completely unreflectively the gold money of the antiquity. A mankind, which already carries out space travel, is not so stupid to use an a priori faulty money, from which all civilization problems arise, which can be thematized at all, unless it was already helped a long time ago:
God the LORD (Yahweh) = artificial archetype "investor"
earth and heaven = supply (goods) and demand (money)
rain / humidity = money emission / liquidity
living man = independent entrepreneur
garden of Eden (paradise) = free (i.e. monopoly-free) market economy
fruit bearing trees = profit making ventures
tree of life (ez pri ose pri: "tree that is fruit and makes fruit") = money cycle
tree of knowledge (ez ose pri: "tree that makes fruit") = money lending
fruit from the tree of knowledge = original interest (S. Gesell) / liquidity premium (J. M. Keynes)
man / Adam = real capital / the cultural man working with his own real capital
woman / Eve = financial capital / the cultural man investing in new real capital
animals in the field = workers without own capital (interest losers)
serpent = thrift (the snake saves arms and legs)
death = spiritual death by religious delusion
good or evil = egoistic and educated or selfish and conceited
original sin = private capitalism (redistribution of interest from labor to property)
"the woman gave her husband from the fruit" = transfer of the original interest to the real capital
being "naked" = earning money with own work
"to be clothed" = to extort interest from the labor of others as an investor (lat.: vestis = clothing)
"when the day had become cool" = cooling of the economy (beginning liquidity trap)
"hiding under the trees in the garden" = pretending that the interest is a reward for one's own performance
"the woman you have added to me" = dependence on interest-bearing savings
offspring of the serpent = money savings
offspring of the woman = new real capital
head of the snake = capital market interest (return on real capital)
"us" = who have nothing else to do than to enrich themselves from the additional work of others
expulsion from paradise =
loss of the ability to distinguish between market economy and capitalism
cherubim = blockades of thinking
From the original sin indeed all civilization problems result, and as long as nobody knew how to overcome it, the working people were not allowed to understand it! That today's "clergymen" (meanwhile highly mentally disturbed), indoctrinated "economic experts" (academically blinded) and elected "top politicians" (professional complete idiots) do not understand this immediately is to be accepted. But also today's "normal citizens", who are otherwise capable of logical thinking, try to compulsively imagine that a system of equations with 28 unknowns must have another solution, no matter how irrational it may be. Without irrationality, however, the assumption is obvious that the overcoming of all civilization problems and thus the actual beginning of the human civilization (heaven on earth = demand equivalent supply) would not have been possible only since Silvio Gesell, but already since Jesus of Nazareth. Thereby it fits quite into the overall picture that this is to be proved today no more on the basis of the four gospels in the new testament of the Bible (whose authors had no idea what they wrote),...
(NHC II,2,016) >> (Matthew 10,34-35) You shall not think that I have come to bring peace on earth. I have not come to bring peace, but the sword. For I am come to divide a man with his father, and the daughter with her mother, and the daughter-in-law with her mother-in-law.
(NHC II,2,030) >> (Matthew 18,20) For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.
(NHC II,2,044) >> (Luke 12,10) And whosoever shall speak a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him.
(NHC II,2,055) >> (Matthew 10,37-38) He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. And whoever does not take up his cross and follow me is not worthy of me.
(NHC II:2,106) >> (Matthew 18:19) If two of you become one on earth, whatsoever they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven. (Matthew 17:20) If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye may say unto this mountain, Lift up thyself there; and it shall be lifted up; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.
...but on the basis of the original parables in the unaltered Gospel of Thomas:
(NHC II,2,016) Perhaps people think that I have come to cast peace upon the world, and they do not know that I have come to cast divisions upon the earth, fire, sword, war. For there will be five in one house. Three will be against two and two against three, the father against the son and the son against the father. And they shall stand as one against another.
(NHC II,2,030) Where there are three gods, they are gods; where there are two or one, - I am with him.
(NHC II,2,044) He that shall blaspheme the father shall be forgiven; he that shall blaspheme the son shall be forgiven; but he that shall blaspheme the holy spirit shall not be forgiven, neither on earth, nor in heaven.
(NHC II,2,055) Whoever does not hate his father and mother will not be able to be a disciple of mine. And whoever does not hate his brothers and does not hate his sisters and does not carry his cross as I do, will not be worthy of me.
(NHC II,2,105) He who will know the father and the mother, he will be called the son of the harlot.
(NHC II,2,106) If you make the two one, you will become sons of man. And if you say, "Mountain, lift away!", it will disappear.
(NHC II,2,113) His disciples said to him, "The kingdom, on what day will it come?" Jesus said, "It will not come when one looks for it. It will not be said, 'Look here or look there,' but the kingdom of the father is spread out over the earth, and men do not see it." ***
mother (of culture) = sum of all savings
harlot = financial capital
brothers and sisters = real and financial capital with limited competition
mountain = profitability hurdle of original interest
father (of culture) = national economy credit supply
son = credit demand for new real capital
holy spirit = money secured in circulation (holy = secured; spirit = money in circulation)
kingdom of the father = Natural Economic Order (normal state of full investment)
*** (Preface to the 3rd edition of the Natural Economic Order, 1918) "The economic order here spoken of can be called a natural one only in so far as it is adapted to the nature of man. It is not, therefore, an order which comes about, say, of its own accord, as a product of nature. There is no such order at all, for always the order we give ourselves is an act, and a conscious and willed act at that."
If you need something additional to laugh at, you can still look at the unscientific translation or "modern" theological interpretation of NHC II,2,105....
He who knows the father and the mother can be called the son of a harlot?
...which confirms the above already mentioned state of mind of today's "clergymen". The today's state of knowledge and technology would have been reached without mass poverty and war about in the third or fourth century, whereby environmental pollution and destruction would never have been an issue, and where mankind would be then today is beyond any imagination:
"We would be far, far beyond capitalism (capitalism = economic condition, in which the demand for money and real capitals exceeds the supply and therefore causes the interest), if since 3000 years by the economic crises the culture had not been pushed down again and again the laboriously climbed steps; if the beggarly poverty, in which every crisis leaves the masses, had not brought up the beggar mind, which lies now once in the bones of the people, large and small. ... The plague of hunger and the pressure of debts are evil educators. ...And where would we have arrived today in scientific, technical, ... respect, if the promising culture, which the gold, although blood-stained, robbed and extorted, let arise in Rome, had not been frozen, glaciated, destroyed under an economic ice age of one and a half thousand years, produced by lack of money? Surely we would now be sitting on the throne of God and let the universe run in circles on our finger." (Silvio Gesell, 1911)
Dead gods are only artificial archetypes in the collective unconscious, but there are also living gods. Religious (subjects) are controlled by the subconscious, while a person with higher consciousness can in turn control the collective unconscious and thus steer all subjects in a certain direction! For this there is no "physical basis", but the physics is just not the "queen of the sciences", but rather the modern electronics:
Axiom a) A proton functions as a comparator.
Axiom b) A neutron functions as an integrator.
Axiom c) Time is not only relative in Einstein's sense.
That means: The universe is a programmable time wave hologram, in which what appears to us as "solid matter" are functional oscillation nodes in space-time, and which interacts with the thoughts of all living beings, depending on the degree of consciousness!
