The good thing about civilizations was that most problems could be easily resolved by an exchange of resources. As the frequency of resource exchange went up, humans actualized the concept of money in order to better facilitate such exchanges. No one could deny the extrinsic value of money.
It is often said that there is no problem in the world that can’t be solved with money; if not, it could only mean that the offered money isn’t enough.
The Sorofyas had a slightly different interpretation of that saying.
