Intellectual Property Right is an example of our flawed reasoning

Human beings cannot reach their definite destination by equating creations of mind to material wealth, calling it ‘Intellectual Property Right’ and using it for exploitation.  Global organizations and judicial courts of every nation want to accept and declare that it is legal to do so.  Jeevan’s powers are inexhaustible – How can you treat them like commodity?  Is their proposal (of bringing and enforcing Intellectual Property Right) based on understanding of jeevan and consciousness?  How far would it prove as beneficial for humankind?  I know that jeevan’s powers do not diminish how so much one may use.  You can see it for yourself.  Jeevan powers do not exhaust by using, their use only renews and revitalises them.  Jeevan powers cannot be quantified.  Any effort to quantity (and trade) jeevan powers will only result in frustration. Intellectual Property Right is an example of how our flawed reasoning makes us pledge our own self, making us slaves, build the basis of exploitation.  In my view it is against humanity and it is against coexistence to exploit based on human intellect.  It is against humanity to fight based on who owns an idea.  How can you declare that you are building a just society on that basis?  This is something to think about.  Such claims are blatant lies according to me.  Human intellect cannot be measured.  Every human being has inexhaustible intellectual powers which cannot be bound by books.  I have found myself to be bigger than whatever literature that I have written.  I am bigger than all machines that ever got made.  Human being is bigger than all machines that ever got made and all books that ever got written.  All books have been written by human being, and human being is bigger than all books.  I don’t think we will understand anything until we reach this conclusion.  After all these discussions we can accept what would be the right thing to do.  Eventually one reaches the conclusion that we humans must become wise.
