It is similar to Moore’s law, which predicts the doubling of the transistor every two years. White’s law hypothesized that with the advent of the god complex the nominal salary, the money paid to a person for working, will regress or diminish to the point of zero. This does not mean that people stopped working it means that they stop working for a salary. It means that taxes were no longer collected on a person’s income, when the minerals were mined, the products manufactured, or the goods and services consumed. It means that the goods and services are no longer priced according to demand for that matter they were not priced they were given priority relative to supply, demand, and relevancy to the societies values.
Life sustaining produce and products became more highly valued than recreation and leisure toys. Those people engaged in the production of food, shelter, energy, and medicine were more highly valued than those who manufactured toys or tended resorts. Someone was need to everything or the world stopped working but the global mind calculated the value of everyone’s labor in respect to each societies values and priorities. The goods and services were prioritized and made available to the various residents whose value afforded them the product or service. The interesting thing about this development was the tendency of the individual to self-regulate their wants.
How does one eradicate greed? How is it possible that there are sufficient enough resources to supply the needs of a world’s population? What means are used to motivate the lazy? How do you deal with the disparity of man’s nature, the human condition, and the environmental consequences?
We are our own answer to our problems. Greed and all of the other personal compunctions sloth, envy, anger, gluttony, pride and lust is a function of attitude and opportunity. They become a condition that is foisted upon us but a willingness to give into them.
Slowly but surely, according to White’s law, as the richest of us realize that the accumulation of wealth is not the be all end all because money no longer occupied the central focus of humanity or that money was even the only method of exchange then even their efforts will be redirected.
As their focus changes from self to others an attitude of stewardship took hold of the world and as the compunctions of greed subsided and the attraction to selfishness and sacrifice grew into to the desire to facilitate and share the want for money vanished. Slowly but surely as the poorest of us realized that the want for food and shelter and the feeling of powerlessness diminished as their condition changed from disparity to equity, as their focus changed from self to others and their compunction for sloth and anger was over come by the willing to work and cooperate the want for money and revenge diminished.
More challenging than the compunction of greed is the attraction of envy and sloth. There are many whose lives are consumed by wishing they had something different and than what they had and that the grass, to them, seems greener on the other side of the fence. Too many are willing to let others do what they should be doing for themselves and there was seemingly nothing to motivate them.
Christine commented “I have always thought that I was the normal one, that my point of view was the most correct, and that there was very little that anyone could actually teach me. But since putting this mood ring on and actually seeing that it was not green from… the get-go and for the past week I have not been able to keep it from being yellow… either I have a faulty ring or I guess what you are suggesting is a possibility.”
“Yes, the other day I did realize that I could control it because my brother made me angry and I was about ready to throttle him when I noticed my ring’s color was very orange. Yes, I was able to change it from red back to yellow by deciding not to beat him about is head and shoulders with a stick. However, it didn’t change to green… surely that should have caused it to turn green. I just don’t understand how to get it to turn green? Why isn’t it green! It should be green! Oh, what do you mean… look at my ring… it is glowing orange.” ” see what you did, you caused it to turn orange.”
“Okay, Okay… I hadn’t thought about that… perhaps I am the one that causes it to turn orange.”
