[OSList] We now have one world government ladies and gentleman

... just reminded myself that I have been out of practice for a while: 
all the places I used the word "law" should be corrected, it should say 
"principle". There are 4 or 5 "principles" and maybe a 6th is in the 
making. And the Law refers to the Law of Two Feet.

To label what I perceive as "facts of life"   "principles" is the 
tongue-in-cheek I love in Harrisons writing (Wikipedia has the meaning 
"The idiom tongue-in-cheek refers to a humorous or sarcastic statement 
expressed in a mock serious manner.") and talking. Same applies to the 
usage of "Law" in this context.

Discovering the ease of being (Leichtigkeit des Seins) woven into the 
ost process and playing on it brought the breakthrough in my approach to 
ost... dancing with the force of selforganisation.

Cheers from Berlin
