I think that are the people and the "Perl Way of Life".

Perl have a spirit to let the people to be free, free to use, to learn, create modules, develop for/over/with Perl.

Perl is what it is in this days because we have a lot of people developing Perl or modules that are on CPAN. If you take a look, CPAN have more than 3000 developers, now get all the people that work in the Perl CORE, well, much of them walk through the monastery! ;-P

Now get all the people that are learning Perl, well, actually all of us are learning Perl, since we always have something to learn about Perl. In other words, we can do to much things with Perl in to much ways, and are to much people increasing the Perl resources, what make impossible to learn everything that exists about Perl, and when you think that have learned all you start to invent! ;-P
