“The cost of the oil has gone down a lot. Why has it gone down so much?”
My wife asks me this as she checks the price outside. Using my phone, I search the causes of the drop in the price of oil in our nation.
The cause was Libya has recently come to trade with the greatest producer of oil in the Middle East, Saudi Arabia, resulting in an enormous amount of oil being exported from the region.The other cause was the civil war in Iraq. Great effort is being made to make up for the expenses that were lost during the war by exporting oil. I was able to understand to some degree after reading this explanation but I did not know how to explain to my wife who has a shallow knowledge of economics.
“Um~ the price of gasoline has gone down because we, the people, don’t have money.”
“Because of us?”
“Then, the world flows on centering on us.”
My wife interpreted what I had said in such a meaningful way, though I had not had any intention of answering in that way. Yes. That is correct. The world goes on, centering on me. The reason why the universe is meaningful is because the Earth exists; and the core of the Earth is human beings. And I can assume that the value of so many people’s existence comes from the different, unique individuality possessed by each and every person.
