Knowledge is becoming a mere commodity- free, cheap and easily available. The integration of knowledge to solve specific problems is not a mere commodity, it is unique, to a specific problem or person. And when this integration of knowledge is personalised to solve these problems, knowledge becomes a powerful force.
Here’s another question: Why can mankind not apply this ever-new, fast-growing flood of knowledge to solve our global socio-economic problems?
We can! We can achieve solutions through applying knowledge, purposefully and by means of appropriate technologies to empower many, many people at large scale. With the rapid increase in knowledge, more systems will become available to solve our universal problems.
