    Thank you novel treasure for asking this question. No or maybe so. For me I do not know for sure. Personally I reached my fullest potential at conception regarding energy. It has been kinetic since then and potential is diminishing. Once learning, yet probably forgetting most of it becomes the law of conservation of energy. Or, energy can neither be created or destroyed.

    Viewing that from a hubber's stand point one ponders where the energy is or goes. Then comes matter and loosing that. Or, eventually we all will disappear, yet the energy will always remain the same. The key is rest.

    For potential to remain high-er the disposition of matter would require monitoring or at least metered. Sounds like a song and a dance doesn't it? That is where the argument of rust being chaos or entropy comes into play. Most rusty old model A's and T's can be restored or reused or recycled becoming vintage with a value and worth far exceeding the original purchase price.

    Discover one of those behind an unpainted barn in a field of wild oats around Kansas or Nebraska and I bet you the owner would give it away - kinda'. Unless, they read the auto trader magazine. Or, watched one of those A & E programs about discovering stuff in old barns and such.

    Maybe watch Family Jewels with Gene Simmons and learn a whole bunch about marketing and investing. I have basic cable  now, so I had to drop out of the last semester. It was just getting good with family differences, gender differences, new markets being explored with the daughter and son spreading their wings, and it is funny too. Learn while laughing.

    How did I get here NT? Funny he is kinda' religious regarding his Jewish Faith and he adores and respects his mom. She is always on the show too. His wife was a playboy bunny, yet she is kinda' smart for a blonde - just kidding glancing at your pic. Yeah, marketing 101 & 102 were great seasons. I bet if one was to watch all eight seasons marketing would be a snap. I mean you have to hand it to them - KISS. Like Paradigmsearch says "Find out what they want and give it to them." KISS did.

    I wandered, oops

      One of the more interesting answers to my questions. I enjoyed reading, you made me chuckle. You make an interesting correlation to kinetic and potential energy that had me thinking in a direction I had not thought of when writing the question.
