The world is a tightly wound chain, running because of the unequal distribution of wealth. We are all part of a class system, trying to reach the peak of success that our life enables us to achieve, and struggling to make it within the system. The system is only an idea but yet it causes suicide, depression, anxiety, murder, and most of the world’s problems.
What can you get a completely innocent person to do for cash? The answer is anything. Everything has its price and you can persuade the most moral of people to do the darkest most sinister of things with the promise of wealth. I like to believe that I am not one of the people that can be provoked by the temptations of wealth because I have the mentality of what it is; I understand the ideology.
Money is not something someone can own. It is property of the government, distributed in order to stimulate the economy. Once we have money, it is up to the government how much of that we are allowed to keep. We are unwillingly forced to pay taxes, buy food, pay rent, etc. Once money is put into our hands, it is only there until it is given to someone else and passed throughout the economy, just as the developers of the system had planned.
We are human beings. We are animals. All we need to live is food, shelter, water, and love, all of which are not a product of wealth. These are all natural products that exist in the environment. Obtaining these items is not most people’s worry. It’s easy enough to obtain enough resources for life, but then the societal view of comfort replaces people’s desires. There is only so much money and an unequal distribution at that. It is up to us, the individual, playing a role in the game of society to try to uncover the secrets, the trends, the following movements, in order to make the most out of the system. If we can find out the trends of society, we can use it to our advantage and make the wealth unequally distributed to us.
Although this idea may or may not work, we cannot base our lives on an ideology. If we have wealth then great, but if not, we can’t let the idea of poverty run us down. Too many people are going into debt for reasons such as trying to live up to the standards of their neighbours. An average person doesn’t need much to survive but the greed that causes people to put themselves into debt is disgusting. They are making themselves slaves to material objects, they are becoming slaves for things that they don’t need. This ideology can ruin you, but you have to stand strong and rise above it. Live to what you can afford and don’t worry about a thing because as long as you’re breathing, you’re okay, with money or not.

The world seems so small and insignificant when compared with the rest of the universe. I think the problem of thinking about the universe is that our knowledge cannot comprehend what it is, or what actually may exist out there. It goes forever as we believe; but the question I want to know is what is it and what are we?
As far as the outside world is concerned, the main source of knowledge is theories of “what if”. So looking into this idea that anyone can come up with a theory of what we are or something to explain what it means to exist, here is mine.
A cell is made up of many different parts that all form the inside of the nucleus. Like a cell, the planets that orbit their solar systems also make up the matter that exists inside of a cell type structure, but at a greater level. Each galaxy is a section of this matter that makes up the universe and each universe is an energy source that forms its own cell like structure.
If earth, being part of what we know to be an infinite amount of planets, stars, and solar systems makes up a mere cell like structure, then we as inhabitants of the earth are barely existent in the reality of existence.
What these cell-like structures form is unknown. It doesn’t matter how much research is done, the world outside of our galaxy will remain unknown because the comprehension of what may exist does not exist within the limits of the human imagination. If our galaxy makes up a single cell then try to imagine the possibilities of what that cell may be part of.
