Time is running in reverse throughout the dark universe. We are going back through time into the golden era of trade and barter. We exchange a painting for groceries instead of getting federal cash aid. It seems the economy of the wealthy is making us poor folks sick. We lay down for open heart surgery and find out our heart has been long gone. As mummies we try to open a bank account but can’t use our blood, as rigormortis has already set in. Our relatives can sell our corpse to the museum but selling bodies is popular so it’s hard to close the deal. Backwards is forward and the US economy is going toward bankruptcy with a trillion dollar debt.
