Internet & Networking "John Perry Barlow - EFF co-founder, Grateful Dead lyricist, and, improbably, now a rancher - arrived in Paris and began tweeting up a storm from the e-G8 summit gathered there this week to discuss the future of the Internet." Incredible what Sarkozy is planning - how about he focus on the many problems in France the people there are actually suffering from?

Because ideas are ruled by quantic rules: when one observe an idea, 1) it duplicates instantly in his mind and 2) both original and clone ideas starts to change on their own.

You can only *own* an idea if you keep it away from any observation *forever*. As soon as you start to show it, whatever under which condition, it duplicates.

That's the point. You can't ask people mind to *not* store new knowledge.
