>The first thing we wish to say is that the ownership of knowledge is an ephemeral thing. This comes about by communication, in that any statement by any person holding knowledge, which is concerning that knowledge, is a communication of and thereby transfer to another. This temporal link is well known to anyone who has thought of these things, so it is in no sense controversial. However it is easy to share information unintentionally and thereby lose exclusive possession of it, hence security of intellectual property being the issue it is in knowledge-centred activities such as research. The commercial advantage of knowledge can be huge, as commerce proves in computer systems.
The second point we wish to make is that knowledge is in its own self timely, or it is not knowledge.
P How can that possibly be so?
>We are of the opinion that time is an essential component of knowledge in the temporal domain, as it is instantly (i.e. outside of time) accessible to any identity seeking it in the spiritual domain. This atemporality of knowledge in the timeless domain is a source of great confusion amongst those of humanity seeking an understanding of knowledge in the temporal domain. We conclude that if there is to be a full understanding of knowledge, it should include the behaviour of knowledge in all domains of reality. If this is so, then an awareness of its changes in atemporality is advantageous in the seeking of understanding of the introduction of knowledge between domains. This fact accounts for the very great confusion surrounding that attribution of veracity to communicative events and the information gained in that process. The veracity is verifiable not by reference to incomplete knowledge about the communicative event, or the information transferred, but to the fact of the transfer having taken place at all, and having introduced new information at all from an unknown source, as is usually the case. This unknown source carries its own veracity, but is not usually attributed to do so, nor is it commonly understood that such veracity can be verified in principle and always. The verifiability of any piece of knowledge transferred is its own completion of the verification process, for if it were not verifiable in relation to another pre-existing piece of knowledge already in the physical domain, then it could not be made any sense of. So the fact sense can be made of it is its own verification, by association with the previously existing knowledge within the physical domain. We will elaborate at a future time.
