This "money" thing is generally employed in what is termed an "exchange
transaction", in which one party gains something he finds valuable, in
exchange for some quantity of that money substance. I have found the
matter to be exactly as described: My laptop machine gives me an
astonishing amount of functionality. You may want to experiment with
this "money" concept, for that reason alone, i.e., by getting a "job",
an unusual social arrangement in which you're periodically handed
"money" substances for performing certain rituals at a location set
aside for such activities.
It is further rumoured that some abstract entity called "eBay" offers
laptop computers fungible with my Sony VAIO PCG-505TX, for quantities
of "money" approximating four hundred United States of America "dollars".
