Life is the interaction of matter and energy described by the laws of physics and chemistry.– physicist, Erwin Schrödinger
Luca Pacioli might have had a philosophical and mathematical answer to the cause of the interaction that Schrödinger left in question. Pacioli might have said that it is belief in future outcomes that drives our physical interaction through energy in four dimensions of space and time of which we are the conscious derivatives.
And, when you think about it, belief in outcomes over time is at the root of every transaction in which we exchange money, and money represents the sum total of belief that we account for. Credit and debit, in equal and opposite measure.
