    Alright thanks for clearing things up.

    Digging a hole and filling it back in is work. It's possible that it consumes the same number of joules of energy in a day as a farmer. Would you say what the hole digger is providing work of equal economic value to the farmer?
    Here, what I mean is does the work of digging a whole itself generates money?
    Obviously digging a hole itself consumes human power, like any form of work. But certain forms of work generates more money than others.

    Secondly, perhaps they haven't, but it's not that complicated; again, only a matter of supply and demand.
    How would you know what the demand of the market is in the real world?

    The work-money exchange paradigm has flaws.

    Implying the harder you work, the more money you would make is simply not true.
    Because how much money you make depends on how much the market pays you.
    The fear of poverty turns people into slaves of money.

    Look at the prices?

    A better way to phrase it would be "not all forms of labor are equally productive". Productivity is what determines wages.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."
