The Internet - The first Worldwide Tool of Unification ("The End of History")

" ... Now I give you something that few think about: What do you think the Internet is all about, historically? Citizens of all the countries on Earth can talk to one another without electronic borders. The young people of those nations can all see each other, talk to each other, and express opinions. No matter what the country does to suppress it, they're doing it anyway. They are putting together a network of consciousness, of oneness, a multicultural consciousness. It's here to stay. It's part of the new energy. The young people know it and are leading the way.... "

" ... I gave you a prophecy more than 10 years ago. I told you there would come a day when everyone could talk to everyone and, therefore, there could be no conspiracy. For conspiracy depends on separation and secrecy - something hiding in the dark that only a few know about. Seen the news lately? What is happening? Could it be that there is a new paradigm happening that seems to go against history?... " Read More …. "The End of History"- Nov 20, 2010 (Kryon channelled by Lee Carroll)

“…5 - Integrity That May Surprise…

Have you seen innovation and invention in the past decade that required thinking out of the box of an old reality? Indeed, you have. I can't tell you what's coming, because you haven't thought of it yet! But the potentials of it are looming large. Let me give you an example, Let us say that 20 years ago, you predicted that there would be something called the Internet on a device you don't really have yet using technology that you can't imagine. You will have full libraries, buildings filled with books, in your hand - a worldwide encyclopedia of everything knowable, with the ability to look it up instantly! Not only that, but that look-up service isn't going to cost a penny! You can call friends and see them on a video screen, and it won't cost a penny! No matter how long you use this service and to what depth you use it, the service itself will be free.

Now, anyone listening to you back then would perhaps have said, "Even if we can believe the technological part, which we think is impossible, everything costs something. There has to be a charge for it! Otherwise, how would they stay in business?" The answer is this: With new invention comes new paradigms of business. You don't know what you don't know, so don't decide in advance what you think is coming based on an old energy world. ..."

Alibaba founders set up charity fund

The founders of Chinese internet giant Alibaba announced on Friday they will set up their own charitable fund.

Chinese internet entrepreneurs Jack Ma and Joe Tsai said the charitable trust will be funded by 2% of Alibaba's equity, which they received as share options in the company last year.

Alibaba announced in March its plans to go public in the US. The company's valuation has been estimated at between US$100-200 billion.

Based on this estimation, Ma's foundation is expected to boast funding between US$2-4 billion, equivalent to the yearly fiscal revenue of a Chinese prefectural-level city.

Ma said in an exclusive interview with Xinhua that he has not decided on the name of the foundation, but it will focus on environmental, medical, educational and cultural programs within China and overseas.

"My wife and I had this thought of setting up a personal charitable fund when we started the business. We'd like to earn money before we turn 50 years old and do charitable work in our own time after 50," said the billionaire, who will turn 50 in September.

He left his position as Alibaba's CEO last year. In the same year, he served as a chair of the US Nature Conservancy's China board of directors.

Ma said the foundation will focus on four main issues, including cancer.

"I'm not going to become a doctor, but I have my own way of saving lives," Ma said.

Ma's philanthropic vision has won the support of Western business leaders.

Bill Gates, co-chair of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, said that the generosity, leadership of Ma and Tsai and the examples they set will "do an immense amount of good, particularly in this remarkable time in the development of philanthropy in China."

Warren Buffett, trustee of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, said Ma and Tsai have been "extraordinary leaders in business and have now become leaders in philanthropy."

Wealthy Chinese businessmen have been criticised by the public for their lack of philanthropic conscience.

Ma said that philanthropic work in China is "more lacking in institutional building and personnel training."

"Charity work in China has just started. We are learning, and we will do more when we gain experience," he said.

Ma personally retains 7.3% of the equity of Alibaba, which has been keen to expand out of its core online retail business to shopping malls, home appliances, mapping services and financial services through a series of acquisitions since last year.
