The equations of knowledge and power

Here's one of those things friends send to friends over the Internet, leaving the original author lost (or simply hiding).

After applying some simple algebra to some trite phrases and cliches a new understanding can be reached of the secret to wealth and success. Here it goes.

         Knowledge is Power,
Time is Money, and (as every physics student knows)
Power is Work over Time.

So, substituting algebraic equations for these time-worn bits of wisdom, we get:

             K = P   ...(1)
T = M ...(2)
P = W/T ...(3)

Now for a few simple substitutions. Put W/T in for P in equation (1), which yields:

             K = W/T  ...(4)

Put M in for T into equation (4), which yields:

             K = W/M  ...(5)

Now we've got something. Expanding back into English, we get:

Knowledge equals Work over Money.

What this MEANS is that:

Theorem 1. The More You Know, the More Work You Do, and

Theorem 2. The More You Know, the Less Money You Make.

Solving for Money, we get:

            M = W/K  ...(6)
Money equals Work Over Knowledge.

From equation (6) we see that Money approaches infinity as Knowledge approaches 0, regardless of the Work done.

What THIS MEANS is:

Theorem 3. The More you Make, the Less you Know.

Solving for Work, we get


W = MK ...(7)
Work equals Money times Knowledge

From equation (7) we see that Work approaches 0 as Knowledge approaches 0.

What THIS MEANS is:

Theorem 4. The rich do little or no work.
