Internet is the sign of the ascendance of Mind in man. It is
also an indicator of the subtle organization of existence,
mirroring something even vaster -- the spiritual consciousness
that links and unites every living thing.
Internet is Expression of Modern Aspirations
The development of Internet is neither a fortuitous discovery
nor an inevitable evolution of technological trends. It is a
natural expression and embodiment of the aspiration of modern
society for unlimited and immediate access to information and
unlimited means for individual creativity and self-expression.
This aspiration has released a colossal energy in society that
is by no means restricted to any single country or form of
expression, but rather flows and overflows through every
conceivable channel that will lend itself as an outlet. (MSS)

Aspects of Internet
We can look at the Internet as the grace of society now heaped
We can also see it as an infinite Knowledge (whose origins are
spiritual) pouring into us through this new vehicle.
Practically speaking, Internet is an expression of the mental
advancement of man, of society.
It is an organization mechanism that brings instantaneous knowledge so
that we can move beyond the facts and be deeply insightful with that
As man organizes himself inwardly from vital/emotional to mental,
organizations on the outside form that express that change. Internet is
one such organization.
Having knowledge at one's fingertips gives one power, which energizes
and make one joyful. I.e. is one reason you love it.
Your aspirations that others use Internet is a conscious longing on your
part that the society itself subconsciously yearns for.
This conversation is Internet in action. It is infinite like; like the
ultimate spiritual Reality from which all emerges.

Internet as Instrument of Social Revolution
Computer, rather Internet, is
revolutionary in its conception. It is an instrument of a social
revolution hitherto unthought of. (MSS)
Individual, Social Growth
The individual's higher
mental development and the emerging social awareness, come together today
with the advent of the Internet. The Internet is an embodiment of both the
higher mental consciousness of the individual and the emerging social
consciousness of society.
in Society's Evolution
The Internet serves an evolutionary role as it brings people
together through knowledge and collaboration. Such movements towards
harmony, oneness, and unity are steps along the way towards our
evolutionary and spiritual destiny.

Internet and the True Individual
True Individual is inclined towards a multi-sided view of things. Does
not the Internet overcome Ignorance in that it gives evidence of these
varying sides, encouraging multi-sided, true-individuality thinking? The
Internet is thus an instrument for the development of the True
-That is the essential
significance of the Internet. It is an organization to evolve
individuality. Each is in all, All is in Each.
The Internet and
the Emerging True Individual
Many think of the Internet as mere
technological marvel -- a form of organization that is simply an
extension of the electronic products and services that came before
it; in particular, the computer and various communication devices.
However, the Internet is more than that. It is an outer form and
expression of our individual need to explore, discover, and achieve
in life. It is a social structure that allows our individuality to
ripen by connecting us the wider knowledge and wisdom of society so
we can thrive and fulfill our deepest aspirations in life.
If the Internet is an indicator of new
developments in the “support systems” of society, the individual
himself is also undergoing a fundamental change. First of all, his
life is becoming more oriented around his mind – i.e. he is becoming
more mental. Because he is more educated, because he is more aware
of the world around him, and because is more conscious of his
ability to direct the course of his life, his mental bent is in
ascendance -- i.e. it is becoming the true leader of his being. As a
result, he perceives that he truly has the inner resources -- the
knowledge and power -- to become anything he so chooses.
One way this inner-directed person fulfills his
deepest aspiration is by making full use of the information and
knowledge available to him. As it turns out, the Internet serves
this function perfectly well, as it supplies an infinite supply of
facts, ideas, and insights to support his ever-deepening aspiration
for self-knowledge, individual expression, and greater success.
Though the Internet is an outer vehicle, still it serves an inner
need -- as this vast organizational system provides truths from
every segment of society so that the individual can consciously
choose the future direction of his life.
In addition to this mental bent that fosters a
truly conscious inner-driven existence, a second contributing factor
to Man’s increasing individuality is the availability of
ever-greater levels of freedom in life. Unfettered by the demands of
the old hierarchical order, unrestrained by old, outworn moralities
and customs, the individual now feels freer than ever, even
compelled to explore the vast array of possibilities available to
him. This person perceives that he has full independence to become
anything he puts his mind to. Once again, the Internet serves him
well by providing a vast array of knowledge that he can choose from
that meet his own particular needs and interests so he can reach his
maximum potential. Thus, the Internet enables Man’s newly inherited
freedom to mature into ever-increasing levels of fulfillment in
A third fundamental change the individual is
going through -- one not readily perceived by society, since it is
more subtle and difficult to fathom -- is that he is beginning to
move out of his essential Ignorance. By that term, I am not
referring to the ignorance of the poor farmer or the individual who
is without education, but to an intrinsic unconsciousness that is
there in every person at birth: that we inherit simply by being
human. We live in what can be called the egoistic ignorance, feeling
separate and cut off from the rest of the world, living for
ourselves alone, when in fact our fulfillment is predicated on a
positive relationship with the rest of humanity. All we possess, all
we achieve is based on what we have acquired from society. The
Internet offers an unparalleled means for the individual to
reconnect and more fully connect with the wider humanity of which we
are a part.
In addition, we tend to perceive only a small
part of any issue or matter, rather than the multiplicity of factors
that make up that object. Dominated by our fixed habits, our
virulent attitudes, and our hardened opinions, we tend to guard what
little we know of a matter, and shun the wider and deeper knowledge
available to us. Holding on to our limited perceptions, we make
faulty assumptions that lead to error-prone, misbegotten behaviors
and actions that result in difficult, pain-filled lives. The
Internet puts us in touch with an unlimited variety of viewpoints,
perspectives and aspects of truth. Our emerging individual embraces
the wide variety of truths, including the multiplicity of details,
as well as the essence that make up the Whole of any matter or
concern. The Internet, with its vast array of information and
knowledge, serves Man’s purpose, as it provides a more integrated,
many-sided view of things. The Internet is thus a social power that
forces us out of our false, limited view, and gives us the
opportunity to embrace a fuller, more balanced, and integral
knowledge. It moves us out of our limited subjectivity and brings us
to deeper and wider objectivity rooted in truth. From that vantage
point, we have the necessary insight and wisdom to redirect the
course of our lives so that we can fulfill our fondest hopes and
As we look out at the arc of our human existence,
of the progress we have made over the millennia, and, in particular,
the rapid changes in human consciousness that are occurring today,
it seems only right that this self-empowered, inner directed, highly
conscious new type of person should appear. The emergence of this
True Individual is the logical consequence of everything that has
come before. Because of the freedom we have acquired, because of our
ever-increasing mental bent, and because of our yearning to know the
many-sided, true truth of things, there is a compulsion of Nature to
produce the next iteration of human life. It is the True Individual.
In parallel and concord with these developments,
we see a powerful new system of society taking shape -- the Internet
--, which is serving this New Individual’s needs in the extreme.
Together they indicate that a new form of human existence is forming
that is at once dynamic, creative, and spiritual in nature. It is a
sign of the next stage of human progress: a signal of our evolution
into a new way of living.
to Higher Consciousness
Internet and Higher
The Internet in one way enables us to move from ego self to true Self and
universal Self, since it allows for fulfillment of one's individuality,
even as it enables easier connection to others and the universe. Though
ultimately that is attained inwardly, Internet can be an instrument for
these evolutionary movements; or, we can say in the reverse, that it is a
reflection of the ever-growing "inward" movement of humanity toward
mentality, away from the physical and vital consciousness.
is worth considering how the Internet is a reflection of spirit, of the
various planes of consciousness from the physical to the supramental, of
spiritual results and determination (of peace, truth, power, bliss, love,
knowledge), and in other facets of emerging consciousness.
The End of Possessiveness,
Profit and the Internet
Internet that brings freedom of
information strikes at the roots of possessiveness. Free service
dissolves the notion of selfish gain, the profit. (MSS)
Internet as Stage Toward Our
The Internet enables us to move from
selfish self, separate and
divided from others, to being more readily, abundantly,
and instantaneously united with others, even the world and
the universe. It is a relatively significant movement toward the
higher aspects of collaboration, harmony, union, unity, and Oneness;
all attributes of our highest evolutionary status.
Internet and Spirit
Internet to some degree brings the future into the present (e.g. what
would have taken days or weeks to research can be found in an instant),
and the infinite into the finite (e.g. where there were only a few
possibilities there are now infinite discoveries). And yet it is an
aspect of, a mere scratch of the surface of the capacities and workings
of the Divine Spirit.
Real Underpinnings of Today's Social Change
cultural changes are having even more impact than technological change.
Recognizing this will put computer and Internet in its proper perspective.
And that will make
the Internet socially creative.
Founding in California
The Internet was founded in 1969 when a signal was sent from UCLA (in
Southern California) to Stanford Research Institute (SF Bay Area in
Northern California.) The US is the economic and cultural leader of the
world (not the leader in terms of high values though.) California is the
leader of the US, thus leads the world. Internet being founded in
California, is indicator of this.

COMPLEX FORM OF ORGANIZATION
Internet is the ultimate
form of complex organization reflecting the higher developments of mind
in the individual, and perhaps even of something subtle and spiritual in
the mind of men. The Internet is also subtle in that it gives sudden
information, defying the laws of space and time; and it is subtle
because it gives deeply insightful, full, integral knowledge, where an
individual could for example know more of his illness than a doctor.
Internet as New Model of Social Organization
What is new and unique about the Internet, thoroughly in
character with the temper of our times, and the source of its
unprecedented productive capacities is its organization.
Internet is primarily and preeminently a new model and form of
social organization with untold power to transform the way
society functions. It is the creation of a vast organization
without central authority or hierarchy. (MSS)
Power of Internet as Complex Organization
The power of an organization increases with its complexity, with
its ability to coordinate and integrate a wider range of
activities. The Internet is a very complex organization of
systems for the generation, transmission, distribution,
reception, and cataloging of information. Internet combines and
integrates the functions of mail, telephone, fax, motion
pictures, television, radio, newspapers, libraries, schools,
conferences and discussion groups. It makes it possible to
interrelate political, commercial, financial, educational,
recreational, scientific, medical, religious, cultural and
personal activities, stimulating the growth and increasing the
productivity of them all. It creates the maximum number of
potential synaptic connections between different subjects and
Internet as Mental Model of Society
Internet is a break from the old organizational model of
society. It is a mental model, as opposed to the physical and
vital models of organization that has dominated our existence
for thousands of years. In that way it is a great change in
social history and progress; a harbinger of man's evolution to a
higher mental functioning, which can extend further to our
ultimate spiritual evolutionary possibility.
Internet and Organization

that we can move beyond the facts and be deeply insightful with that
As man organizes himself inwardly from vital/emotional to mental,
organizations on the outside form that express that change. Internet is
one such organization.
Multiplier Effect of Integration of Sectors
The integration of two or more sectors of social activity,
organization or technology leads to a multiplication of their
productive power, as the combination of computer and
telecommunications has given rise to the Internet which integrates
multiple functions including news delivery, education, commerce,
and entertainment. (MSS)

The Internet that Allows Us to Cross Over to Subtle Life
The Internet is the mechanical necessity that supplies us
subtle knowledge so that we may cross over to subtle life on earth.
That is the true significance of the Internet.
The Subtlety of
the Internet; a Step on the Way to Ultimate Causality
The web represents a movement toward the infinite capacity of life,
which we are just beginning to understand. The greater the movement
towards subtlety, all the way to the ultimate causality of spirit,
the greater the capacity of life to respond beyond the normal
notions of cause and effect, and space and time. Since the Internet
is subtle, it is a movement towards that spirit. It reflects the
subtlety of the organizational power of mind. Beyond that power is
silent mind, spiritual mind of light, illumination, and intuition,
and above that the higher consciousness where the Divine enables
infinite, timeless capacity, if we connect with it. With Internet's
capacity to retrieve information based on what you want, it is a
step in the movement of society towards subtlety. At the highest
level of subtlety, the connection to the Absolute, God, Brahman, the
subtlely moves to causality, which is instantaneous and infinitely
Consider the Internet. Now project it dozens of years in the future; and
further still. It goes well beyond our imagination. It will have a
continuous level of subtlety that overcomes space and time, cause
and effect, and all human logic, that will border on the mystical. That is
an indicator that we are on the way to the divinization of matter.
Full, "subtle" knowledge
gives an individual the knowledge of an expert; maybe even more than the
professional expert. The Internet offers full, subtle knowledge and
[E.g. a web user trying to
understand his health problems can know more through the Internet than
the any doctor examining him.]
Subtlety Required for Internet Use
The Internet requires a greater burden on the user than ordinary
life. Because one only has the other person's limited words, and
the dialogue is often not linear, it requires an extra
perception, a subtle sense of perception of those he is
communicating with. That requires him to move to a deeper poise
from which he can more readily understand the true truth that
the other side is presenting. In that sense, such communication
is evolutionary, and is Nature's Way of giving a push in the
subtle parts of our awareness
Parallels of Subtlety
Between Emerging Individuals and Technologies
there are individuals of mento-spiritual bent, indicating a more subtle
quality of human emerging, there are occupations emerging that reflect a
parallel subtlety. E.g. we can see this in the forms of higher technology,
such as computer software. If we observe the world around us we can see
how products and services are moving towards ever-greater subtlety of form
reflecting the subtlety of spirit emerging in human life.
Organization of Computer and Internet
Computer and Internet have something inherently subtle in them;
powers of subtle organization. This reflects the subtlety of Mind
itself, which is the cause of their existence.
Internet as the Instrument of Subtle Knowledge:
Life is not fully gross, physical and material. There
is always a subtle part to it that is invisible. Of course, there is
another causal part of it that cannot be so easily felt or shown to
another. What is here called subtle is always described as higher
skill. Anyway, a work can be split into many minute parts and all
those can be trained. When all possible training is imparted and
learned, there remains something untaught and unlearned. We call it
skill that comes by experience. It is that part which is called here
subtle. The gross part is teachable, the subtle part comes from
long experience, to those it comes, not to all.
We call that faculty insight, intuition, resourcefulness,
knack or even luck. That subtle part is also teachable if not to
all, maybe for the majority, sometimes to all. It comes from
viewing the part from the whole. Long experience often gives to
doctors, teachers, generals, lawyers, and leaders the touch of the
WHOLE. The part seen against it gives the insight. All
solutions in Sherlock Holmes stories answer to this description.
Subtlety is to know the part not as a mere part all by itself but as
a part of the whole.
Internet now makes available to a patient a vast knowledge,
which only experienced doctors possess. Internet gives the patient
the knowledge of a disease which often patients do not share with
their doctors. In certain minor diseases which the doctor rarely
comes across, the patient can have a far greater information than
his doctor from the Internet.
Imagine the clients having as much knowledge as the
professional has. A doctor may feel his patients are doctors.
The Internet by giving vast stores of information to a
client offers the possibility of his having subtle knowledge, which
only exceptional professionals are endowed with.
After about 2000 years of warfare -- physical prowess settling
legal or even moral claims -- disarmament brings the battlefield to

humanity in all their concerns.

functioning than universal education did at the turn of the 20th

The Role of Internet in Subtle Knowledge
Subtle knowledge comes from inner subtle senses. It does not need
outer experiences, but is confirmed by the outer.
The world is moving from below up, from the physical to the mental,
from outer to the
Computer does many things to facilitate this movement.
One of them is speed that has reached infinity.
It brings the unknown from behind the veil to become the known

It changes the quality by increasing the quantity.
All these are attributes of subtle knowledge from below.
He who wants to build a subtle organisations, MUST use the Internet

Potentials of Internet
We debate whether we can rise 2% or 5% GDP. With the Internet we can give
up such limited views. This new technology is subtle in its workings, and
infinite in its scope. It defies previous conceptions of limitation. In
fact, when we examine it, there does not seem to be an outer boundary to
it. It appears limitless in scope and infinite in possibility, meaning
that it is connected to an Unlimited and Limitless Divine. The problem
just now is that the companies, institutions, and governments are not
seriously using it, thereby shunning the vast potential impact of Internet
to move life. 2% or 5% yearly can become 20/50, 200/500, or more per
annum; which would be an astounding change in human social development. If
we think and act along those lines, we can realize such exponential
change, rather than the current incremental marginal change. It is a
thrilling notion to behold, and foreshadows the infinite potentials of
life that we can manifest when we open to the Infinite supramental
spiritual force and powers available to life.
Simultaneous Time of the Internet
Any work needs certain duration, successive process for completion which
is time. In simultaneous time, work is done with speed of timelessness
abolishing space, distance and time. Internet does that. So who whoever
uses internet as a force effectively, depending on their ability to let
it act, the time is abridged and phenomenal results are achieved from a
single place. (Ramesh for MSS)
Internet Sheds the Negative Aspect of Rumor/Word of Mouth
Rumor/word of mouth which is the most powerful integrating method developed
by society, can be seen shedding its moribund personal quality
through the Internet, which rapidly spreads facts of purer
impersonality to the denizens of the world. (Paraphrase of MSS)
How Rural Societies like India Can Skip the Industrial Stage of Development
- The world evolved from agriculture to modern
society via manufacturing.
- As the centuries or decades pass, the Mind
- It hastens the change.
- Now that the service sector dominates and
society has given a tool of technology -- computer -- India
can skip both the initial phases largely.
- Rural areas can generate
their own service sector and agriculture can be avoided to a
great extent. (MSS)
Spiritual Mind's Multiplier Effect in Society
The computer and Internet revolution are indicators of the
further emergence of the mental consciousness in society.
Anything that enhances that movement has a multiplier effect.
E.g. for each information technology job that is created, a
dozen or more other related jobs are created directly or
indirectly. The mind and its mental application through works in
society has that multiplier power. Society's implementation of
mind centered in the spiritual consciousness has that
potential effect to the infinite degree.
Implementation Fosters Job Security
Employment growth has become more stable in those sectors of
society adopting computer and Internet technologies. Such
digital intelligence fosters economic security and
secretly fosters a multiplier of job generation,
though that fact is invisible to us.
Potential for Internet-based Jobs in the Future
-Wherever time and space
can be reduced, a current job can be made more efficient, and an
entrepreneurial person can step forward and create a new Internet
job to make it happen.
-Where a company now offers one of its product
or service that does not make full use of the Internet, an
entrepreneurial person can step forward and create a new Internet
job to make it happen much more efficiently.
-Jobs are moving from physical to vital to
mental. Physical was carrying a wheelbarrow. Vital is interacting
with the customer with emotions and interest. Mental is a system
that is impersonal. Everywhere an impersonal system can be devised
to interact with the customer, an Internet job can be created.
-If we know the acceleration rate from physical,
to vital, to mental in economic history and recent currents, we can
see the trend of opportunity not only to systemization, but
systemization though the Internet. There are vast opportunities in
-Understand current Internet jobs,
particularly why they are web-based as opposed to not, and then
consider what else can become an Internet job, starting with things
close to the current Internet job, and then broaden the analysis,
widening the field.
-Examine every job and come up with a formula of
how it can be turned into an Internet job.
-Study the trends from physical to vital to
mental jobs, and where space and time can be overcome.
Institutionalize the research and knowledge derived. It can be a
kind of R&D of Internet job potentials.
-Companies spawned by the Internet can be
created by anyone, even a child. Every person, no matter age, sex,
handicap, etc. can forge opportunities, using the Internet to make
it happen. 90% of the population can thereby participate, which
increases the pool of people drawn from and therefore the quantity
of jobs dramatically.
-The Internet is a self-generating, expansive
system that in of itself tends to create more job opportunities.
This is a mind-boggling concept. The Internet can be a job machine
just by the fact that everyone contributes to it and uses it. As its
knowledge is utilized, more opportunities arise. As it is
contributed to, it contributes back exponentially. The more we give
to it, the more it gives back. A country dedicated to giving to the
Internet (in whatever ways; knowledge, resource, etc.) will tend to
generate jobs from it, including Internet jobs. The Internet’s
ability to create Internet jobs is a function of the dedication of
government, private sector, and people to nurture it. Those who
don’t will be left behind.
-As the Internet become more intelligent and
customized to the individual – Web 2.0 -- more opportunities
present themselves. The community that nurtures this creates more
jobs, including Internet jobs for their constituency.
-Internet encourages entrepreneurial spirit.
Entrepreneurial spirit always creates jobs, including Internet jobs.
Whatever nation encourages entrepreneurial spirit, will create more
Internet jobs; and vice versa. The creation for Internet jobs is
simply a product of an ability to overcome inertia, and embracing
change. Those who do will create the most jobs, Internet or
-The Internet is an entrepreneurial machine that
seeks to exponentially expand itself. The Internet is the physical
God of creation.
-We can compare the opportunities of the
Internet to the virgin forest that was there before the US settlers,
and what could and was created out of it. It is infinite in scope;
and we know it can be ceased when there is will and initiative.
Money, Internet as Social
Powers that Expand the Individual Infinitely
In money movement and
Internet we can begin to see how the individual capacity to enable the
infinite potential of life into his own life is amplified through society.
Access to Once Hidden
-University teachers keeping important reference books of the
department library for their own use and for those close to them used to
be the custom. There were not many professors who would gladly part with
the information, even to their own students.
As far as possible, any information that one needed would be kept as a
secret. The public came to know of essential information only by
experience, which means they had very little access to information. The
Internet is gradually making such information public, thus removing all
social inhibitions, which spreads like a wet blanket all over social
life. Truly, it is a revolution the world is undergoing.
-The Prime Minister
[of India] announced that the government is
contemplating starting a Knowledge Commission. If this Commission can
release ALL information that is now a close preserve of the social
hierarchy and make it fully available to the public, a great step will
have been taken. (MSS, extracted)

Genius-based Innovation Garnered from the Collective
Higher organizational values like coordination
and integration can lead to the type of breakthrough innovation that
companies and other organizations are looking for. I.e. innovation
doesn't always have to arise from the solitary genius, but from the
current collective of people in the social entity. We could call it
''collective innovation and genius."
The power that mutually
interdependent people have to change the course of life thus emerges as
an important theme. Across the Internet we can see such potential
collective genius. E.g. Human Science, Karmayogi.net forums, Growth
Online, etc. allow for collaboration in psychological and spiritual
subject areas, blossoming as creativity, insight, and innovation.
organizational values like harmony, oneness, wisdom, love, etc. suggest
even greater collective, genius-induced innovation that can be garnered
from the collective.
Possibilities the Internet Creates

of new organisations. (MSS)

Accomplishing Infinitely by Acting on the Universe Contained Inside
For 10,000 years we lived our lives based on our perception of
physical space and measured time, which the Internet now threatens to
abridge to a considerable degree. And yet the deeper inner
consciousness of an individual can contain the entire universe within
himself at any moment, negating space and time altogether. E.g. he can
take actions from those depths, using that Force, enabling life to
instantly respond up to an infinite degree from anywhere on earth
within seconds. Even the Internet is a scratch of the surface compared
to the accomplishment and joy that can emanate from this timeless,
spaceless, infinite existence that we can contain from within.
Value of Money and the Internet
Money serves as a medium for conservation and storage of what
each person produces and permits easy transfer over any
distance, thereby overcoming limitations imposed by time and
space and dramatically increasing the efficiency of
transactions. Internet promises to play a similar role at the
mental level of information and knowledge as a medium to
organize globalization. Internet is increasing the frequency,
speed and efficiency of information exchange in every field --
commercial, industrial, educational, scientific, political,
religious, recreational, etc. Internet also overcomes the limits
of time and space by enabling instantaneous access to
information around the world. It increases enormously the
number, intricacy and complexity of interactions made possible
between individuals, organizations, facts, activities and fields
of knowledge. Internet is an organized medium for bringing all
existing social organizations into greater contact to release
the maximum energy of society leading to unprecedented levels of
social productivity and development (MSS)
Internet and Values
Although some people decry the absence of values on the
Internet, by which they mean the lack of control over the
suitability of content, the Internet actually embodies high and
strong values from which it derives an almost irresistible
strength. These include physical values such as speed,
timeliness, efficiency and productivity; organizational values
such as standardization, systemization, coordination,
integration and communication; and psychological values such as
equality of access, public service and empowerment of the

Things that Brings Us Closer to Truth

more perspectives of an issue, which is
a boon for getting at the deeper,
multi-sided truth of a thing. Vedanta

Intuition, without thinking. Sri
Aurobindo says we can go much further

years to acquire, if at all. Naturally,
if we stick to our opinions only, it
will be wasted; but that is an issue of
Ultimately, whether we use it or abuse
the Internet will depend on our personal
values, which are constantly shifting
when new technologies emerge.
Old Mind, New
Mind, and the Internet
human mind is evolving to a higher consciousness, and therefore
wants to experience knowledge directly through intuition and higher,
spiritual-like functionings of Mind. Thus, subconsciously Man has
come to offload the worldly basics of knowledge through an
instantaneously available vehicle. That is what the Internet is. It
is the repository of the old Mind, so the new, spiritual Mind --
that can garner the object of inquiry directly without thought, and
can perceive subtle workings of life -- becomes ascendant in our
being. It is some of the first steps humanity is making toward an
emerging Truth Consciousness; a Supramentalized mentality that can
perceive the integral relationship of the parts and the whole of any
matter in a flash without thought.
Internet and Change in Consciousness
Internet heralds the end of the profit motive, of property, of
territoriality, of possessiveness. It breaks down the physical and
vital ego, opening the way to human unity.
Internet, Consciousness, Space, and Time
our highest consciousness, we live and create beyond space and time.
The Internet, a product of the Mind of Man, is the first major outer
projection of that higher consciousness; as it too enables results
that transcend space and time.
Infinity, Timelessness, and Spacelessness of the Infinite
Consciousness through Internet
Infinite Divine is progressively expressing its infinity in Life. It
does so at the physical, vital, and mental levels. E.g. in America,
the Divine's infinite capacity has expressed for a hundred years at
the material/physical level, which has made her the world's
economic leader, a power that is extending around the globe.
expression of the infinity of the Divine at the level of Mind
is the emergence of the Internet. It is infinite information and
knowledge available to all instantaneously, overcoming space and
time. It is the Infinite Divine consciousness spreading its infinity
into life at the mental level.
Ultimate Utility of the Internet
The Internet will serve its revolutionary
purpose when it is used as a tool of education, consciously acting
to mitigate misery, pain, and poverty. (Karmayogi)

while the 20th century was all about conquering nature, the 21st
century will be about understanding people."

emergence of the individual, in which a person can blossom in full
in any areas of their lives. Interestingly, it is the US that
individuality the most, which in turn explains whys she is the
leader of the world.
yet it is companies like Google who are on the front lines, driving
America, thinking for themselves, determining their existence; not
blindly following the herd. It is youth, like these youthful
founders, who are thinking most broadly and deeply, bringing about
the greatest change and having the most impact on society.
individuality is increasingly emerging in the world, and Google, US,
and its young, innovative leaders are leading the way.
Movement Toward Free on the Internet
the years to come will see the continuation of the global movement
towards Free. The Internet is increasingly moving towards free
sites, apps, features, information, wisdom -- monitories by ad
placement, such as Google's approach. The hippy wisdom of the 1960s
of free sharing and non-possessiveness, never realized practically,
returns in a new form with a vengeance on the Internet.
Internet Guidance as Global Guru
is new technology that recognizes where your interests or
preferences lie, and thereby feeds you more of the same once you
have exhausted the original content. An example is Netflix on the
Internet, which recommends movies based on your previous
preferences. Apple's Genius feature does something similar with its
Smartphone apps and ITunes. I have found this capacity to be
remarkably accurate and helpful, as what I found was just the type
of thing I aspired for.
imagine this concept applied in different fields of life. Imagine in
education, once a youngster has taken to a particular area, he or
she is fed with more, deeper, richer content along those lines. In
that way, technology is feeding and fueling our True Selves,
contributing to our further progress and growth.

grow as a person, which would likely also take us in somewhat
different direction to our preferences, then the Internet could
become the global guru for humanity.
Library to Last Forever
other day I was doing an important Google search (on employment) and
one of the links was to an old out of print book, now fully
digitized. It went directly to the page(s) that had the expression I

was a remarkable experience.
today's NY Times Google co-founder Sergey Brin wrote an article 'A

he and his partner had the same experience as me -- but many times
over -- compelling them to doggedly pursue this wonderful
technology. 10 million books digitized so far and counting!
Unexpected Spurt for Growth Online
the last two or three years, Growth Online unique viewers have
plateaued at ~2000 per weekday, after a~20-30% annual growth rate in
the previous half dozen or so years. Now suddenly in the last month
the daily rate has zoomed to nearly 3000, a 50% jump! It is a
attribute it to a 3-month summertime effort to revamp the site,
including redoing the table of contents and index of the
KnowledgeBase, making sure all of the links go to the precise,
correct location, breaking out composite pages into single pages for
dozens of topics (making it easier to search for and find), redoing
pages so they look correct in all major browsers, the removal of
unwanted special character, etc. etc, In other words, an effort to
try to raise the level of the work, to create perfection seems to
have attracted the response.
Google's effort to digitize books that few have seen or read will
help change the history of knowledge. It is a great service,
bringing so much of the forgotten past into the present, enriching
our understanding in life. E.g. free access to dozens of books of
the spiritual masters, like Vivekananda are now available. Multiply
that 10,000 times in all spheres and domains of life and you have
the fantastic benefit for society. I am sure other organizations
will follow in Google's footsteps with similar efforts. If done with
due diligence to copyright, it will be a groundbreaking effort,
bringing enormous benefit to the world.

extended to more people than anywhere else in the world; in
which the discoveries of science generate keen anticipation and
excitement; in which the quest for information has become an
insatiable thirst; in which the productive value of information
has become a self-evident fact of life; and in which new

eagerness and facility than at any other time or place in
Infrastructure of the Internet Developed
The initial infrastructure for Internet was established in 1969
to provide a secure and survivable communications network for organizations
engaged in defense-related research. Over the following two decades, it evolved
into a fast, convenient, low cost means for universities and research
institutions to electronically exchange information and messages. The spread of
personal computers in businesses, government, schools and homes coupled with the
growth of local area networks during the 1980s and early 1990s provided a means
for million of individual users to link into the system. These developments
propelled the growth of the Internet from a thousand or so networks in the
mid-1980s to about 60,000 connected networks in mid-1995. By the middle of 1997,
the Internet was available to an estimated 100 million register users
Internet as New Model of Organization
What is new and unique about the Internet, thoroughly in
character with the temper of our times, and the source of its
unprecedented productive capacities is its organization. Internet
is primarily and preeminently a new model and form of social organization with
untold power to transform the way society functions.
Internet, Authority, and Hierarchy
The Internet is a vast organization without central authority or hierarchy.
Institutions, and Internet
Institutions are not
centrally managed. Organisations are centrally managed.
Over decades, centuries
organizations mature, evolves into institutions.
Internet is likely an
institution since it is not centrally managed. It skipped the

dissolve organisations (where central authority reigns) like education
and management fully or in part.

information, accumulating thoughts and facts,
things in life. A person involved in physical sciences,
engineering, medicine, or a technician might be examples of work
where this level of mind is predominant.

higher level the mind is occupied with interpreting the
information from the senses and converting it into knowledge, understanding
of life. It also expresses as
emotions, interests, values, sentiments.
