the Architecture of Cities

As I said in my article "Move Your Money", human culture should be constructed out of symbols that are alive physically/monetarily and emotionally/socially/politically, and intellectually/artistically and spiritually.

Because our society is very bottom heavy with an over-emphasis concerning cultural money symbols, that money system is rotting out, for it is alone and without the other needed elements that human culture should have.

Exceedingly clever matters having to do with money are given us by Ellen Brown and that has its place. But there is more needed. Wisdom is needed as well. One should be both clever and wise when dealing with money. And the addition of more ethereal elements and higher order matters into our culture would make it stronger and make money an asset and a cultural element easy to control.

As money morphs into its many concrete manifestations we see it take form as a typical city. But future cities might look much different than our cities of today look.

What we see today on main street USA is a collection of stores that trade in physical/monetary wealth and one or two churchs, churchs that by their presence in such a culturally dead place seem to condone the lopsided nature of our current money-mad inner city downtown and mainstreet interactions. And much of the rest of our culture is just as vacuous.
