Until We Are All Free, No One Is Free
No one owns knowledge. Efficacy is demonstrability of concept, meaning if a hypothesis can be demonstrated, said demonstrability is a virtual, timeless fact of physical reality independent any observer and, therefore, no observer can ever justifiably stake a claim to that concept.
Otherwise, ownership of concept necessarily implies ownership of eternal conceptual reality by virtue of ownership of a concept that remains true regardless of an observer at any point in time, and such is, by implication, necessary to deny conceptual knowledge to anyone at all.
Furthermore, ownership of knowledge necessarily creates exploitative hierarchies resulting in unjust societies—namely, socioeconomic hierarchies, as well as those hierarchies within the institution of knowledge itself, i.e. academia. Academia is the last place within any society that should exist accordingly.
Conclusively, all knowledge is necessarily public knowledge and should, therefore, only belong, and ever be attributed, to public institutions of equal access and never private entities or individuals whereof research contributions are made via public ledger using blockchain or a similar technology.
This ensures the means of, as well as advancements to, human knowledge, technology, production, and capital are distributed equally to the entirety of society and not just those individuals, institutions, and nations whose advantage is owed toward none other than a position in spacetime.
As always, the problem is ego.
