if you were buying futures how would you know the physical goods that they represented were there to be claimed      maybe production could fail or a vendor might sell the future of the same lot to multiple buyers      in reality such things seem not to occur      since this would badly corrode confidence in the selling company      but if it did      the easiest way for duped buyers to cope would be to sell on the futures before prices collapsed      distributing the loss further and further from the producer in a pyramid scheme      beholding a pyramid it’s difficult to take in the whole edifice because one’s so occupied scanning the individual tiers of stone      even harder when one’s entombed inside      brain pulled out through the nose and preserved in a canopic jar to dream of the sublime      how will you apprehend this pyramid’s meaning
