IAN: That's a good example, and is the point I've been making, which is that the same thing (such as a transfer of money) as two attributes, a positive and a negative. Since both attribute are equal but opposite, they sum to zero. It is in this way that the net Work (F*d*cos(theta)) in a closed system is always equal to zero.
