See the fundamental of life hardly anybody notices: Everybody on earth gets energy from the sun. Everybody, the just and the unjust. Even the energy running this computer comes from the sun. And the sun demands nothing back. Nothing. All energy is totally, freely given - that is, until it falls into human hands! That's called Stealing Fire From Heaven, the universal myth describing what separates us from Nature, makes us fall from Balance. Our unique ability to control fire symbolizes our unique control of Credit and Debt. This is the Fire Serpent, the Trickster Seraph who brings consciousness of Credit and Debt. He's called Promethius (Forethought) with his twin Epimethius (Afterthought). He is Ego, who dwells everywhere but in the Present Mind.

— Suelo at ‘Moneyless World,' We're Gods Crap Game

Suelo describes his way of life thus:

I've been totally without cents for over 7 years. I don't use or accept money or barter - don't take food stamps or any other government dole. I don't see money as evil or good: how can illusion be evil or good? Attachment to illusion, called idolatry, is certainly tragic. I simply got tired of acknowledging as real this most common world-wide belief called money! It's one of those intriguing things that's real because you believe it's real!

He lives freegan in town (if hospitality isn't available) and off the land when he's out in the country, and it sounds like it's working out for him. I really want to find the guts to attempt something like this.
