In money, the distinction between
Coins and notes is akin
To particles and wavicles in the atom.
An atomic society will always
Uphold such a distinction,
Even if, in its bureaucratic decadence,
It produces more coins than notes.
For coins correspond, in their concrete realism, to
The particle aspect of the atom, whereas
Notes correspond, in their abstract naturalism,
To its wavicle aspect.
The former are phenomenal, the latter noumenal;
Although the latter in some sense precede the former
In regard to their autocratic essence.
