If it was the case, then any sufficiently rich people in this reality should
be less conscious than me... Imagine poor Bill Gates, the richest man, but
the less conscious... Because if rich people of this reality are not in lower
measure state than "common" people... what is a low measure now ? Because an
OM where you are the richest person in the world must not be of a large
measure... till there is one !
