Alvino, Ok. =0)

Money is energy.
Weapons are energy.
Nuclear weapons are a lot of energy.
Prejudice is energy.
Lots of things are energy.
Anger is energy too.
When we accept anger, we become anger and we definitely have lots of energy then. Does that make it acceptable or "all ok"?
Then we could say Everything is ok... Anger is ok, prejudice is ok, murder is ok,... you know... just go with it, whatever it is.
Really?

I am truly open to all explanations and am curious, more than just curious, to find one that I can adopt.

Ryan, even trade doesn't make so much sense to me. Who decides how many eggs are worth how many tomatoes?
Who decides the value of things?
Then we get into demand and availability... and that leads back to where we are now.

Awesome, Sabina, now we are getting close to
What the heck is Money and what to do about what Money is.

Let's try to use THIS ONE to establish the two answers.

The two people who are trading decide together how many eggs for how many tomatoes... there is no corporation, central bank or stock exchange deciding these things. In my experience once people start actually trading with one another it is inevitable that a more sincere relationship forms in which case cheating or being unreasonable in their trading becomes less of a possibility with time.

=0) Alvino,

Expressing oneself through mysterious simplicity is of course always an option and when one does so, since the statement is so mysterious, it can be interpreted in various ways, so it could mean anything.
So... we could just leave it at that, as everyone can just understand it however they want.
And where are we in regards to the posed question?
We are back at the very beginning.

How many eggs for a Ferrari? Red one?

If is such a big word and simple progresses to complicated and convoluted so fast. Knowing the problem and fixing it are different.

Maybe I'm feeling a little pessimism this morning. I cannot believe my wife forgot we were out of coffee...............ARGHARGHARGH! =0(

Here George... I've got some you can have... just made a fresh pot.

"Money...... its a gas"....... see it sounds bad already

I'm with Alvino... money is energy... What you do with it determines its value, its worth. It can be used for all kinds of things... you get to decide what you will do with the money you have.

Is it a perfect system? I dont think so however its the one we have. I dont think money will go away until fear is gone...

Only what you do with it determines its value? That is so not true!

What about how you get to it? What you do in order to get money...
I'd say that has something to do with its value and worth too.
