Is money an illusion or something else?

There is a science of getting rich, and it is an exact science, like algebra or arithmetic. There are certain laws which govern the process of acquiring riches, and once these laws are learned and obeyed by anyone, that person will get rich with mathematical certainty.

We all trust in this system, which is why it hasn't collapsed yet.
