We can’t own Wisdom!

Question from the Internet:

“Why will no organization or groups of individuals ever gain a monopoly on knowledge let alone wisdom, and why do many keep trying to keep their data a secret with all their rules of confidentiality and layers of “privacy”and “security”?”

This is the behaviour of our misguided, inherently egocentric, subjective nature, trying to monopolize everything, use everything against others for the selfish sake of the individual.

It is misguided as we can’t store, cover knowledge, wisdom. We don’t own knowledge let alone wisdom as it doesn’t belong to us.

True, useful Wisdom belongs to Nature, it is in Nature’s perfect, infinite database. Moreover it can be accessed only through a special “code”, through similarity of qualities between the researcher and Nature.

And since Nature’s overarching qualities are selfless, unconditional service, absolute love, only those who want to access, reveal knowledge, Wisdom for the sake, in the service of others can access it.
Those who monopolize, store “knowledge” possess only superficial, empty, useless data, information our present — collapsing — human system is built upon.

The future will be built by those who can attain true Wisdom, and build the new Human society based on Nature’s selfless, altruistic template.
