The world is in a rat race making money as times passes or saving wealth to secure their life for tomorrow. Some make gains or loses in this race. If time was equal to money then it would have been possible to recreate another day like yesterday to save those loses, but that is not the case with time wherein money could be duplicated or printed to fill those losses. What was actually lost yesterday was not the money but it was actually your time and your life.
If time and life are not replaceable then time is always equal to life.
