Out of all the elements, it could be argued man is most obsessed about Gold – from the Egyptians to the Romans to the Incans to the more modern day Europeans.
What is this obsession all about?
Well, it is quite simple, money, which leads to wealth, which leads to power.
The irony is that gold is really the most useless of all elements. It really is useless – it is not used by man for anything other than decoration. It does not even have a biological role!
What then, could we consider to be the most useful element? That, I am afraid is another debate ……. And another blog posting! 😉
