This is why poor people stay poor and wealthy people stay wealthy. Def. 2 as a noun and def 3 as a verb.

Wealthy people know they can acquire it and poor people have been lied to and told they cannot. Once anyone believes their postulates that sets up their future.

The funny thing is, anyone can change their postulates at any time and decide to be something different. Of course, one has to find the correct prior postulate to cancel.

If you have been told frequently enough that you are stupid and you believe that you are indeed stupid, then you will not have answers to questions when asked. Rather simple actually.

A fundamental element taken for granted? I'm sure that leaves a lot of people poor. Like hanging chads. But as George Carlin said, “If you can nail together two things that have never been nailed together before, some dumb schmuck will buy it from you!”

(However, I second the sentiment of; Yahoo! Education :giveup:My vote's for Americium. I probably have no idea what I'm talking about, but action is better than standing around... yeah, those random(¿) votes don't seem so stupid now, do they troop? LOL :buddha:)

Like moths to the light....
