The truth is that much of our material possessions are no longer manufactured and are instead coming from the earth. Many of us have more gold than some of the earth’s people have gold. The fact is, with the amount of gold in the earth, and the amount of gold we have in our wallets, it’s unlikely that we will be able to replace the gold that is already in the earth.
That’s why we’re told that we should be careful about where we hoard our gold because if we burn it, we will lose it. But what if instead of burning it, we create a source of gold that is both renewable and non-renewable? That would be quite a story. I’ve been reading the book Gold, by Neil deGrasse Tyson, and it’s definitely worth a read.
Of course, we should not burn gold, and we should certainly not hoard it.
It may not be possible to create a “new” gold that is renewable, but there are many ways to create a non-renewable gold out of existing gold. This is especially true for silver. In a world where we don’t want to burn any of the gold in the earth, we can mine it out or turn it into something else.
All of those are possibilities though. And even if it were possible to create a gold that was renewable, it wouldn’t be a good thing. Because in a world where the gold is scarce and we have no way to produce it, there is a reason for that. If you had a million dollars in gold, and you only had one way to get that gold out, you wouldn’t want that wealth.
I think the key to that whole issue is whether the gold is renewable or nonrenewable. With nonrenewable gold, you’re stuck with it, and you can’t change it, or even change the source of that gold. With renewable gold, you can always exchange it for something else.
Which brings me to the second key: I know you get the gold from someone, and you want it. But that does not mean you can just take it. You have to actually get the gold from someone. I do not want to get into the whole “How do you go from a homeless man to a billionaire?” because that is a huge topic for another time.
This is a big topic, so I will let you know that you can not just go into an exchange shop and buy gold. You have to actually get the gold out of someone else and trade it for something else.
The Gold is the only thing that is not renewable. And I am going to tell you why. This is because the stuff that goes into gold is incredibly valuable because it’s one of the most easily converted things. In the case of gold, it’s the metal itself. It is the most easily converted thing in the world, and it is the most valuable thing in the world.
Gold is what we call “non-renewable” because it is something that is in constant flux. The metal itself is constantly changing, and it is not something that can be “renewed.” Gold is not a finite resource. It is only a finite resource when it is in a state of being “broken,” and it is only a finite resource when it is in a state of “fullness.
