With the explosion of e-commerce, and especially the use of the internet for business transactions, the "paperless office" should surely already have become a reality. Its progress has, however, been impede by tha lack of sufficient information security and a workable legal framework. So where are we now?

As the author put it: My hand was writing as I was reading what was being written. I submitted to a higher power that had flowed through me onto the paper. This propelled me into a state of total submission. Falling into a deep state of prayer in total surrender, a light came from within. I was seemingly being immersed into the light. As its intensity increased, the immeasurable feelings of love were compounding as the love and light were encompassing my very being. This booklet is the author s attempt to reveal in written word our connection to the love within the light. The booklet contains thirty-two of his writings, including the two automatic writings indicated by the asterisks."
What make someone a good human being? Is there an objective answer to this question, an answer that can be given in naturalistic terms? For ages philosophers have attempted to develop some sort of naturalistic ethics. Against ethical naturalism, however, notable philosophers have contended that such projects are impossible, due to the existence of some sort of gap between facts and values. Others have suggested that teleology, upon which many forms of ethical naturalism depend, is an outdated metaphysical concept. This book argues that a good human being is one who has those traits the possession of which enables someone to achieve those ends natural to beings like us. Thus, the answer to the question of what makes a good human being is given in terms both objective and naturalistic. The author shows that neither 'is-ought' gaps, nor objections concerning teleology pose insurmountable problems for naturalistic virtue ethics. This work is a much needed contribution to the ongoing debate about ethical theory and ethical virtue.
