Along the way, it occurred to me that perhaps the Knowledge Forum would benefit if its existence were made known to them.
Since this thread is dedicated to the concept of an "author culture" in the forum, it follows that older persons are likely to be living repositories of knowledge, some of which might be based upon principles which are valid from one generation to the next.
May every member of The Knowledge forum grow financially, intellectually, socially and beyond.
