This quote sums it up nicely. The substance of value is 'ghostly' labour
because it purely abstract, purely non-sensuous labour, hence requiring
money for its existence.

We have yet to discuss the ghost in Volume 3, Ch. 48, last paragraph in
the 1st section:

The "mere ghost", it turns out, is none other than Labour ...
"which is no more than an empty abstraction and taken by itself
does not exist ...."
