@timokoesters @aral not enough organic substances with insides and outsides that metabolize and reproduce but don't do so by being alive

while we've got a lot more precedent for people distributing resources and living their lives without using standardized currency in a way that assumes everything is a transaction between strangers

@timokoesters @aral then again if all "life" is is just an abstraction of the former, the way "money" is an abstraction of transactionalizing all exchange between people, then yes life too

@aral I've been forced to learn about blockchain after all these years avoiding it, and the main takeaway from it all re the currency side is summed up by your statement nicely
