Difference (from prior major revision) (minor diff, author diff)

The first point is that HO is stating a clear Vision and some very profound ethical Values. He doesn’t want to be the "owner" of something that has many other contributors and reflects the cultures of many peoples. Because of that he is refusing OST to be registered as such, or trade marketed, because it doesn't belong 100% to him. And if it does not belong to him, for sure it does not belong to anyone else.

Presented as a "practical question", this is again an ethical one. HO "profoundly rejoices" that others are using OST, because he chose to not trademark it, to not receive fees from their fellow practitioners for "certification training", nor commissions for using a trade marked method.

In conclusion, years before "copy left" appeared, HO decided to create as "Open Source" methodology, so that anyone that reads the UG, if he/she feels to have "a good head and a good heart" may begin to use the method, without having to ask anyone, to follow any pre-requisite courses, to go through any certification programs.

And he or she can stay connected with the community, and learn more through the Openspaceworld sites or the OSLIST.

In this conditions, it is useless and inconvenient for someone to state who "trained" him/her. Except maybe for the first practicionners, we all have been trained, directly or indirectly, by Harrison. But some of us have been trained or learned OST including this meta-foundations. Some others have been indoctrinated to reverence their trainers in an unapropriate way as if they were gurus of a religious order or Reiki "masters".

This defines that HO is not only detached from outcome in each event he facilitates, but also even in what concerns the methodology he initiated. He is too much interested in truth to be interested in a priori defending "his truth" from the truth of others. He knows very well that the "requisite diversity" in needed not only in biology, or in each OST event, but even in the OST community of practitioners if the method is to progress and adapt instead of being formalized for death in a couple of cook-books, to assure "repeatability".

And he also says that any new facilitators are invited to "join him" DIRECTLY in this adventure and NOT through any intermediates.
