Something very interesting and bizarre which I came across at my friend Tim’s home: a US Dollar Bill … with something very interesting:

It looked different.

How so?

Look carefully

Silver US Dollar

SILVER CERTIFICATE

This certifies that there is on deposit in the treasury of

The United States of America

ONE DOLLAR

[This certificate is legal tender for all debts, public and private]

ONE DOLLAR
In Silver Payable to the Bearer on Demand

Why is this so interesting?

  • silver certificate US dollar

To me, the reason this is so interesting:

Money ain’t real.

Money as a social construct. Once Nixon un-pegged the US dollar from the Fort Knox Gold Stash, the government can essentially print money at will (‘ex nihilo’ — out of thin air).

Morale of the story:

Don’t make your life purpose or self-esteem or ego about money-accumulation. Money as a tool and means … for something else!
