Copper and Venus have an ancient spiritual connection. The English word “copper” is derived from the ancient Greek word “Cyprus”, which is also the island where Venus was born. On the planet of Venus, the highlands of Ishtar in the north hemisphere and the Aphrodite in the southern are both the names of war goddesses in the Sumerian region. They were also the goddesses of beauty in Roman time. Besides love and abundance, they both represented power of control and conquest.

Liyue Copper Smelter at Jinshan, now a relic, is part of Taiwan’s mining history and thus can provide a reference for the cryptocurrency craze that has risen because of the pandemic.

According to statista.com, most of today’s mining pools are located in China (Xinjiang, Sichuan and Inner Mongolia), and they use coal as the main power source. Cryptocurrency which represents the future of mankind is supported by such an old powering method that was invented in the ancient industrial-revolution era.

銅與金星具有一種遠古精神式的地理連繫:銅的英文 copper 源自於古希臘文 Cyprus,賽普勒斯,一座位於地中海盛產銅礦的小島。在金星上,大部分的地理特徵是由女神與女星命名;北邊的伊師塔高地(Ishtar Terra)與南半球的阿芙蘿黛蒂高地大陸(Aphrodite Terra)分別指向了蘇美時期的戰爭女神與羅馬時期的美神。除了掌管愛與豐饒之外,她們都是兼具駕馭與征戰力量的神祉。
 
現已成為遺跡的金山禮樂煉銅廠作為台灣「挖礦史」的一部分,似乎可以與近期因疫情而加溫的加密貨幣投資熱潮相互對應。數據顯示今日大部分的礦池皆落坐於中國(新疆、四川與內蒙古)及美洲,並以燃煤為主要的供電途徑。象徵著未來世的加密貨幣終究是以工業革命時代的老方法做為支撐主力,元宇宙的光榮前景像是一層鍍在煤礦上的「金」。
