knowledge Throughout history humans
have formed groups that hold knowledge close.
By doing so these groups
gain an advantage by using specialized knowledge.
Obvious examples of a
material advantage can be seen in armaments.

always search for strategic advantages
to access proprietary knowledge have always been erected.
Corporations, just like individuals, can easily become reactive and
spread themselves thin as they vainly
seek to sense and respond to all stimuli.
Unless they have a clear
sense of direction that can help them filter and
prioritize knowledge flows that
matter, they will
be easily distracted.
"Filtering knowledge flows and engaging
with knowledge flow participants matters little if we lack the ability to apply
the knowledge acquired.
Once a critical mass of knowledge flows is
achieved, flows begin to concentrate at an increasing rate and the value
generated from these flows grows exponentially." - John Hagel III and John
A shift is now underway in which it is easier to access
unknown knowledge flows due to the internet.
This shift undermines the
structural advantage of knowledge barriers erected by corporations by
systematically reducing those barriers.
"The free use of scientific
discoveries is increasingly limited by legal ownership over their applications.
In the realm of biomedical science, the traditional free exchange of information,
strains of organisms, and so forth is crumbling because
genetically engineered micro-organisms can now be patented;
that is, made into property.
In the past, scientific progress was based
on coöperation more than competition: People shared new results in
journals and through informal exchange, protected by their university salaries
from the compulsion to profit
financially from their work.
Now that careers depend in part on
corporate research funding and now that researchers and
universities have a pecuniary interest in patenting results,
a new era of secrecy has dawned.
It originates from the profit

Contrary to the
Founders' intentions, intellectual property in
this case stymies scientific development, because
science progresses by building on
the results of previous science.
When the incentive is to conceal instead of
reveal, this is no longer possible.
What else could we expect from
the conversion of scientific
knowledge into property, which is nothing else than
the enclosure of part of the
commons into a private holding?" - Charles Eisenstein

initiated to compensate the creator of an original work - not to protect

Libraries (AAHSL) wish to express our concern regarding the $2.5 million cut to
the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Library Network that was included in

This $2.5 million cut would reduce
the EPA Library Network's budget by 80%. The EPA has already begun to shut down
its libraries and to reassign staff.

"We understand that the EPA is
in the process of closing libraries and dispersing and destroying materials.
Over the past 36 years, EPA libraries have accumulated a vast and
invaluable trove of public health and environmental information, including at
least 504,000 books and reports, 3,500 journal titles, 25,000 maps, and 3.6
million information objects on microfilm.
EPA officials are dismantling
what is likely one of our country's most comprehensive and accessible
collections of environmental materials.
These actions are being
undertaken in accordance with the budget request the President submitted for
fiscal year 2007.
Congress, however, has approved neither the
President's 2007 budget request nor the library closure." - Bart Gordon,

This web site is not a commercial web site and
is presented for educational purposes only.
This website defines a
new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The
author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has
forged a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has
been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their
agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race.
Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious
practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This
web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the
Way of the Lumière Infinie - a rational gnostic mystery religion based
on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme
leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is
encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer
through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the
spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of the
Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on
this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their
religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."
This web site
in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the
violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels
desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already
controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global
industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse
of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of
global ecosystems. Civilization is based on coöperation. Coöperation
does not occur at the point of a gun.
American social mores and values
have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international
cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to
deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional
buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior
corporate media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction
of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to
the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction
and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been
directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that
further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
