In poetry:

Far through the cycle of years and of lives that shall come,

Consequently, in a given economy or market it is often possible to participate in a cycle of trading of currencies, goods or instruments and make a profit or a loss, without anything actually having been produced or manufactured.
Time and symmetry in models of economic markets

Time and symmetry in models of economic markets
It specifies the ratio of good a that was returned to i from k to that traded away from i to j , hence it specifies the profit or loss of the total cycle, so far as good a is concerned. A different kind of curvature can be constructed from the Qj b ia .
