What is Profit?
Akbar’s Meditations: Take the question above and think about it, but take the first instinctual response and dig deeper. What is profit? What is it? What is a real world example? How does it work? What is it grounded in? Is it good? Is it bad? Is it real? What is its historical origin? Is there profit in the natural world, ancient forms of ecology? If you were selling something to your best friend, would you profit? Go as far as your mind will take you, and if you feel like sharing your results, well even better!
“Then I looked on all the works that my hands had wrought, and on the labour that I had laboured to do: and, behold, all was vanity and vexation of spirit, and there was no profit under the sun.” Ecclesiastes 2:11
