What if we limit the expression of these two important words: Share and Adapt?

What happens when you limit the voicing of these two important words?
1) Nescience : (Ignorance is a lack of knowledge)
Our eyes and senses are limited by many ways. We are adapted to view the world perfectly only at a particular zooming level. The world becomes blurred when we increase or decrease the zooming level. We can't know what is happening in another country just by our senses. Increasing and decreasing the zooming level requires indirect measurements that are tedious and sophisticated. You need to learn the outcomes of the research, and techniques to make measurements by bringing it down to texts and tools that are compatible with our zooming level.
Without sharing these texts, using and adapting it, our knowledge will be limited to our zooming level and will be ignorant in all other levels.
2) Inequity
Ignorance creates apathy,  apathy creates isolation, and isolation creates inequity. We treat differently to some people because there is a mismatch in our thoughts or believe that we lack the commonness. But we can identify the commonness only if we look deeper, outside our zooming level. Lack of sharing and adapting also gives unfairness in the opportunity to learn.
3) Lack of Creativity and deceleration of research
We don't build anything from scratch, we build things by reusing what its already done. Lack of sharing and adapting will disallow us to improve things that are already done.
4) Lack of Judgement
We make decisions by validating our ideas with different experts and knowledgeable people. Implementing without validation is often disastrous. Sharing allows us to confirm our ideas, get feedback from experts through discussion.
