A new theoretical object
Timecrystals imagines the upward redistribution of wealth as an alchemical reaction.
Resources are extracted and converted into wealth.
Wealth generates fun in exchange for labour.
Wealth congeals into treasure.
Fun curdles into discontent.
Discontent is dissipated by ephemeral reward.
Ephemeral reward reseeds the process.
