QM024 - Money is Time


Most of us have heard the expression that time is money. When people say that, they’re saying that their time is valuable so you should probably stop wasting it.

The expression is backwards though. It’s not that time is money. It’s really that money is time.

What do I mean? Money is how we store time. When you work for 8 hours, you have converted your labor into that pay. You are storing the time you spent in the form of money.

Our modern system of money messes this up though. This one is a little bit cosmic. Buckle up.
