Money is one-dimensional
Money is not an adequate measure of human things. Money is one-dimensional, is just one number. But things that matter are nearly always multi-dimensional. They have colour, form, movement (in three dimensions), connections with other things... A society where many people judge themselves and other people according to their wealth is a very primitive society. It is a society that is trying to become one-dimensional. In fact, money as measure is not an objective one, it's very subjective, emotional. A substitute for real measures that science is painstakingly working out.
