The title of the painting suggests how we are all at the mercy of market forces, with super computers around today
things can be transacted at hyper speed, if panic spreads over a given situation, billions and trillions can be wiped off shares etc., with lasting effects on countries and their economies, on real people, living in real space, and not in cyber space. I hope someday real regulation appears to protect as they Joe Public. In the painting Prometheus is aware of the
vulture looking over his shoulder perhaps he is thinking about curtailing humankind excess's.
