18: Aether and the Fifth Element

“The initial meeting two days ago with Aaron at the Emeriti National Headquarters (posing as the Swiss National Museum), went exceedingly well.  Sara reviewed Emeriti financial records, historical chronologies and relationships with significant political, spiritual, and intellectual figures within diverse disciplines, but focused on the financial records.  She was particularly interested in piecing together the overall scheme developed by the early Emeriti to create a number of discrete revenue streams that would merge into what is now known as the Emeriti Central Pension Fund, or ECPF.  The fund grew at a slow pace during the early years because compound interest was frowned upon at the time.  However, during the late 17th Century, early banking attracted the attention of the Emeriti, whose prime directive was to facilitate Pension Enlargement.  However, one need not possess a PhD in Forensic Accounting as did Sara, to recognize how inflation would erode any optimistic expectations of asset growth through compound interest instruments offered by Banks, then or now.

As she sat pouring over her notes in a café at the edge of the Limmat River as it flowed briskly northward from Lake Zurich in the early June afternoon sunlight, she began to ponder the significance of the early writings that focused upon Pensions, Water, Air, Earth and Fire.  Could there be a connection between the four Emeriti elements and their concept of what we now call “recurring revenue,” or “cash flow?”  The inventions and products produced and sold by the Emeriti were certainly defined by categories such as stone, water, sun and fire, or wind.  The Greeks had a fifth element that they called “aether” or “ether,” referring to the unchanging cosmos or atmosphere breathed by the Gods on Olympus.  Perhaps the concept of an unshakable Pension was derived from such early ideas………………….”
