Free Market Domain Illusions

It may perhaps be an illusion that there exists somewhere or anywhere a free market, in some democracy in the world. This is a bold statement and perhaps presumptuous.

But if there is a place in the world with a truly free market economy, then I would like to be the first to know about it. In many seeming free market economies there is much red tape that still restricts the buying, selling and trading of goods and services. As well there are monopolies that govern the marketplace and which form collective partnerships with related businesses to control the market.

One such example is the domain name industry. In this electronic realm of commerce there is almost no regulation. Registrars do as they please with domain names they sell. They can and do set the price of domain extensions in partnership with Registries. They limit the listing of domain names for auction on their websites. all the while allowing nearly identical domain names to be listed for sale on their portal.

This control and autonomous power of the Internet is due to the fact that the Internet is not regulated by the government. “The Obama administration is months away from deciding whether the United States Government will continue to provide oversight over core functions of the Internet and protect it from authoritarian regimes that view the Internet as a way to increase their influence and suppress freedom of speech,” Cruz said in a statement.“1

In the article on this link: various details are provided, which explain how the US government will relinquish what remaining control it has over the Internet. Initially the plan was to cede control to ICAAN, which is a so-called not for profit agency with assets of $99.82 million USD and revenue of $72.02 Million USD as at 2011 ( Now there are plans to let the United Nations govern the Internet. It is uncertain what this will mean for the World Intellectual Property Organization WIPO and its role in regulating internationally protected trademarks.

Now that we can be sure that there will an increasing number of countries involved in Internet regulation, it is certain that no one will really know the rules of the game. Moreover, how can non profit organization have assets of nearly $100 Million USD and revenues of more than $70 Million USD. It seems clear that no one is really overseeing the Internet, which is perhaps the largest business in the world that continues to grow at an ever-increasing rate daily.

Some domain Registrars boast of revenue of more than $1.05 Billion and some Registries, which own hundreds of the nearly 2000 new gTLDs (generic Top-Level Domains) have assets in the high Billions USD with expenditure cash of more than $100 Million USD.

Can we be sure, with all of the above said that are interests are being protected; as consumers or domainers (people who buy, sell and trade domain names)? If the domain name industry is for the most part unregulated or self regulated and the Internet will soon be totally regulated by an entity whose purpose is to govern international matters of peace and harmony, then who is ‘minding the online store’?



Speculative Cynic

Let us ponder collective intentionality, and the power of effectiveness; for causative change, in a revealed domain. Let us postulate an integrated system that operates with precise synchronicity and spans the entire construct on levels. Let us further query into the interconnectedness of mind, collective unconscious and the wisdom that is the bridge which joins these modes. Finally, let us delve into the ability to perceive with clarity through the screens of fabrication and concealment that morph, distort and convolute the oneness into multiplicity.

Collective intentionality has the power to shape reality and to effect change through causation, only within a revealed domain. For intentionality defines the shape and structure of reality. Through an agreement the perceived and perceivable are able to be viewed. The colors, voids, defined terms and modes of expression exist through the collective intentional agreement. Perception with the domain is variably different from perceptiveness beyond it. For at each level the domain is invariably modified in a state of flux.  Through the flux change there is the potential for change through a joint intentionality of the collective whole.

The integrated system that operates with precise synchronicity and spans the entire construct on all levels is the modality which is imbedded within level of the ultimate construct, within which all of the levels are contained. The possibility for integration of the system and its operation of synchronicity is possible through the collective intentionality as whole, without any division. A perceived division is subjective, but does not exist for the objective perspective, except as an illusion of mind.

A query into the interconnectedness of Mind, collective unconscious and the wisdom that is the bridge, which joins these modes will provide for enlightenment of the obscured. The interconnectedness of Mind is facilitated through wisdom. The sharing of wisdom through a joint modality provides for illumination for the collective unconscious and the spanned Mind which is interconnected among all members who connect to the portal of the modality through the level of wisdom which has been defined. A definition for the modality of the wisdom required at the precise level for integration was established at the joining of the collective interconnected Mind and exists in a defined state within the construct. But beyond the construct into various levels it exists in a state of flux that is shaped by the members as permitted within the defined parameters for morphing.

The ability to perceive with clarity through the screens of fabrication and concealment that morph, distort and convolute the oneness into multiplicity is the specific goal. This process can be commenced upon through removing the screens of fabrication by focusing the graspable levels of light and focusing the light with high intensity into opaque screens. This will provide for enhanced perception and conversion of the screens into portals and vessels for further encapsulation of the light. In the absence of the focused light perception is convoluted to the point of abstraction. Through the obscuration of the light there is initiated a process morphing and distortion.



Get What You Want In Business

A question well put and almost never clearly answered is: “How can I get what I want in business?”

The “Rolling Stones” rock band had a song entitled: “You Can’t Always Get What You Want”, the lyrics of the song continued “But you if try sometimes, you may find that get what you need.” This is a truism is life. Even though you may not be able to get what you want, “if you try, then you get what you need.”

They key to getting what you want, “what you really really want” (Spice Girls, Wannabe song) is by trying. Making an effort is the first step in a short journey to acquiring you desired service, product or other item / entity in the world.

Persistence is vital to reaching your objective. This law of persistence is in fact “The 50th Law”, according to the author of “The 48 Laws of Power”, Robert Greene. He explains that the “50th Law” is being diligent and resourceful. Making a small or minimal effort is not sufficient to achieve one’s goals. Rather one must strive with great vigor to fulfill one’s goals.

Mr. Greene’s claims that the essential component in fulfilling the 50th Law is not getting bored. Even if one does become bored or frustrated in going through a repetitive routine, this pattern is required for self-mastery of the subject or process one aims to master.

Through persistence, with a positive attitude, one can learn any new skill and complete any objective. Stay constantly positive and upbeat and counter boredom with inspiring quotes or aphorisms. Focus on your objective, imagine that you have already met it in the world of thought and then work towards actualizing your goal in the tangible or real world.

When communicating with company representatives be sure not waste your time with people who do not have decision-making authority. You may get the same answers to your repeatedly asked questions. This runaround is pointless. Some levels of works or tier of customer / technical support have been specifically trained to offer standard replies to inquiries and / or complaints. They will offer a robotic continuous retinue of replies to certain questions.

After a few initial questions that seem to lead nowhere you to changeup your strategy and request to speak with a supervisor or manager at the company. If the representative(s) are unwilling to transfer your call to a superior employee you can inquire with managers or directors of boards or agencies that regulate the industry, in which the company is positioned. Regulatory boards can offer useful advice and can connect with high-level managers at companies in industries, which they oversee. They can also recommend options that the company employ to resolve your issue. All the while, they are documenting your issue. You can request copies of your complaint later on to be used at meeting for resolution.

If you are offered compensation for a service that was not provided or a credit for a faulty product, graciously accept the gratuity. Be careful that the reimbursement or complimentary offer is of relative value to your financial loss. It is advisable to request a day or so, if possible to adequately review and properly consider any form of compensation or credit from a business entity.
