26. No, you just imagine that what I said somehow validates your point.
It's as absurd as the people who imagine that somehow gold would be super valuable if civilization collapsed. No, the things that had value would be practical items: tools, food, weapons, etcetera. Gold would have exactly zilch value. For most of human history, economics have been barter based: coinage, and gold as coinage, is a relatively new thing and one inherently dependent on civilization and fiat value.
