This theorem can now be proved mathematically:

Given:

- Power = Work / Time and,
- Knowledge is Power

Substituting knowledge for power, we obtain: Knowledge = Work/ Time

If time = money, then: Knowledge = Work/ Money

Solving this equation for money, we obtain:

Money = Work/ Knowledge

Therefore, as knowledge approaches zero, money approaches infinity,
regardless of the amount of work done.

Conclusion: the less you know, the more you make.
