That interesting.

1 Might I suggest as I have before that we use lifetime which is the lifetime as the perfect personal metric even though it can not be sure of longevity its is after all a fiat life we live right! ;)

2 When I was younger I use to consider and explain with similar mining analogy. Indeed we where all being mined for our minerals, like walking talking asteroids in the mercantilian-corpo-wunder-verse being hunted and captured to be then mined for our golden goodies. I see the idea persists Its a compelling analogy and to my mind is more accurate of the economic hierarchy than anything else.

I don't often quote members of former boybands but it couldn't have been a more fitting context. I was out in the Airside retail park and a DJ was plonked at Harvey Normans blasting this shit out and I was struck by this lyrical run,

Quote:

and we're praying it's not too late
Millennium

Some say that we are players
some say that we are pawns
but we've been making money since the day that we were born


Ask yourself, making money for whom?
