Do you have an objection about ownership? If you pay for something in another currency system, do you still feel that you own it?

Ownership constitutes one of the marks of fabric of pyramidal collective intelligence (the form of collective intelligence that widely prevails in modern societies). Ownership comes exclusively from a cultural origin, not a universal one as the law can make us believe.
From the evolution of consciousness perspective, the sense of ownership (owning something) exists as a temporary developmental ladder of a human being, specially in pyramidal societies. A human who has spiritually evolved enough doesn’t feel interested in possessing something. He/she prefers to become the servant or the keeper for the next generations. Primary peoples have socially developed this level of wisdom a long time ago.
Given that ownership stands at the heart of pyramidal collective intelligence societies, most people don’t go over this stage in their personal journey, as nothing encourages them to do so. One remains entangled in the social thread of his time. Those who want to pursue the spiritual journey and walk the path to freedom realize the illusory aspect of property and possession. They become conscious of the archaic mechanisms of fear and separation that operate unconsciously under the banner of ownership.
The means we use to get to material goods influences the relationships we establish with them. Do they come from robberies, conquests, barter, purchase, loans, gifts, donations? Depending on the mean of acquisition, the fates and social dynamics attached to each object differ wildly.
Conventional scarce money requires conquering for the most part. Each purchase, as neutral as it may seem, becomes affiliated to its origin: a conquest. This spirit of conquest, competition, proprietarization, possession, floats in the air, in the culture, to the point we don’t think about it anymore. It infuses every single transaction made with scarce money. We don’t see that anymore with the use of sufficient currencies that exist in direct proportion with our capacity to exchange (like the air we breathe, we use only what we need). As for the gift economy, it creates a dynamics that leaves all the previous flaws aside.
Therefore the very design of a currency triggers specific states of consciousness. Predatory, archaic, conquering in the case of scarce money. Open and generous in the case of sufficient currencies. Compassionate and creative in the case of technologies supporting a gift economy. The obsession of possessing torments us less in an economy of free currencies than in an economy of scarce money. It leaves us completely in the case of gift economy.
More and more people will realize how the evolution of consciousness of humanity implies the use of a new language, alive and non-Aristotelian: the language of flows. A revolution as important as the writing in its time.
