energy would be their "money" maybe?
units of energy
gotta have some kind of carrot to dangle for the 'slaves'
these would be like AI, self aware 'robots', right?
I mean if a future society of them arose, they'd have to be self aware first..otherwise what would be the point...without self awareness..they wouldn't even have the urge or need to become a society
And if they were self aware..then they might respond to many kinds of rewards..depending on what kind of pleasure responses they might have developed slong the way...
that could be used for trade and lead to some kind of money coming about (along with that need of energy and whatever else makes these future robots run..oil, spare parts, etc...)
money is simply a representative of goods...of trade
I can't believe I am going on and on about this..you'd think I was stoned...I'm not
How did I allow myself to get hooked into this conversation?
it is all speculatively intriguing, though
