Let:
K = knowledge
P = power
M = money
T = time
W = work
Since:
Knowledge is Power
Time is Money.
Power is Work over Time.
In terms of our definitions, we have
K = P (1)
T = M (2)
P = W/T (3)
Substituting equation (3) into (1) yields:
K = W/T (4)
Substituting equation (2) into (4) yields:
K = W/M (5)
That is, equation (5) shows that Knowledge equals Work over Money.
Corollary 1:
The More You Know, the More Work You Do
Corollary 2:
The More You Know, the Less Money You Make.
If we solve for Money in equation (5), we get:
M = W/K (6)
That is, Money equals Work Over Knowledge. From equation (6) we see that Money approaches infinity as Knowledge approaches 0, regardless of the Work done.
Corollary 3:
The More you Make, the Less you Know.
Solving for Work in equation (6), we get
W = M K (7)
Or, Work equals Money times Knowledge. Equation (7) shows that Work approaches 0 as Knowledge approaches 0.
Corollary 4:
The stupid rich do little or no work.
