I have often thought of being the slave to the corporations of the world and that I am just another number to "they" .. and how do I get off this cycle of buying stuff that I really don't need. We have the other thread regarding clutter and waste but this thread I would like to introduce a philosophical approach to stopping it before it begins. I have found a like mind with this physicist who has opened my mind. I purchased this book but then found it in it's entirety online and am sharing it with all. hope you enjoy it as I have and I hope it is enlightening to all that read it .
