By Jove, I think you've got it. Now we can get on with the business of all 
of us becoming trillionaires! As information becomes as 
cheap/ubiquitous/unfettered/understood/accessible/+ as air and (to a very 
limited extent) water have traditionally been, our "virtual wealth" will be 
measured by the amount of starlight impinging our geosphere!

The cost of "staking out a claim" to this mother lode of 
knowledge/information/interaction/+ is (in most practical senses) unbounded.

As Chief Seattle said about the Earth, we might now say "We don't own it, 
it owns us". Not only are we all in this together and members of one 
another, we can guarantee our right to accessibility - the millennium of 
"The Accessible Planet".
