THE DECLARATION OF CULTURE
AMIDST THE PRESENT DESTRUCTION OF PARADIGMS, WE DECLARE PEACE.
WE DECLARE PEACE TO SAVE THE CURRENT PLANET OF RESIDENCE, EARTH,
AND ALL OTHER PLANETS WHO AID IN ENDING THE PLAGUE OF VIOLENCE. WE DECLARE
PEACE TO SAVE OUR SPECIES FROM EXTINCTION DUE TO THE ABSENCE OF
CONSCIOUSNESS. WE DECLARE PEACE IN THE PURSUIT OF LIBERATION FROM
ATTACHMENT TO RESOURCES AS OUR HIGHER MEANING. WE DECLARE PEACE FROM
THE PITFALLS OF CENTRALIZED POWER, DICTATORSHIP, EXPLOITATION, OPPRESSION,
FORCE AND COERCION. WE DECLARE PEACE IN FRONT OF SPACE, TIME AND CREATION,
AND WILL NOT FALTER FROM THIS PROCLAMATION.
WE BELIEVE CATALYZING CREATION, LIBERATION, CONNECTION AND
SOVEREIGNTY WILL BEND THE AWAKENING OF HUMAN CONNECTION TOWARD HIGHER
FORMS OF LIFE AND MORE MEANINGFUL FORMS OF VALUE. WE EMBRACE THE 10
PRINCIPLES OUTLINED BELOW, WITH THE VERACITY AT WHICH WE EMBRACE OTHER
FORMS OF PEACEFUL LIFE, AND THE FORTITUDE WITH WHICH WE USE OUR POWER TO
HEAL THE TRAUMATIZED. WE ACT, ONLY, UNDER THE ENDS OF PROPAGATING AGENCY,
AND THE USE OF EMPATHY OVER FORCE, COERCION AND AUTHORITY.
RESOURCES ARE ABUNDANT, AND YET, WE REMAIN GRIDLOCKED IN THE
OBLIVION OF SELFISHNESS AND ARTIFICIAL SCARCITY. WE CANNOT CONTINUE THIS
WAY. UNDERSTANDING THE CONSEQUENCE OF OUR ACTIONS WILL HAPPEN THROUGH
ENLIGHTENED SELF-INTEREST OR CHAOS. WE EMBRACE THE OPPORTUNITY TO
TO BE FREE, WE MUST BE SOVEREIGN. TO BECOME SOVEREIGN, WE UPHOLD
OUR DUTY TO SELF-ACTUALIZE. AWARENESS IS THE CORE RESPONSIBILITY IN THE
DECLARATION OF SOVEREIGNTY. WITHOUT AGENCY, INTELLIGENCE, EMPATHY AND
SENTIENCE, WE WILL BE UNABLE TO LIVE FREELY TOWARD THE FULL EXTENT OF OUR
WILL AS INDIVIDUALS, AS WELL AS OUR GOODWILL TOWARD OTHERS.
WE ARE CITIZENS OF THE PLANET EARTH AND BEYOND. WE ARE CULTURE, AND
OUR DECLARATION OF PEACE IS THE BEGINNING OF OUR COMMITMENT TO CREATE A
WORLD BEYOND VIOLENCE, BORDERS, FORCE, AND HATE.

Equality and Uplifting Uniqueness: All beings and forms of consciousness are equal in terms of the infinite, and should be honored for the unique virtues and character traits we all possess. Cherished aspects of individuality should exist outside of ideals centered around consumption and/or status as the relative deterministic quality creating the narrative of one’s self, and others relative identity.
Self-Transcendence and Egolessness: Awareness of the self should not tend toward absolute selfishness. Many achieve awareness of the self through deep inquiry, or through the survival skill of overcoming trauma. Ego is often a projection of trauma, and egolessness does not necessitate the absence of existence. Self actualization is a tool to reach your full potential by seeing existence as unencumbered by projections onto your identity from the self or from others.
Non-violence: Violence can take many forms. Emotional violence is a form of violence. Physical violence is a form of violence. Sexual violence is a form of violence. Psychological violence is a form of violence. Inaction is a form of violence. Financial violence is a form of violence, as is material abuse. Robbing a person of dignity, honor, and respect are all forms of violence, as are abandonment, neglect and conditional love. No violence will exist in this world.
The Pursuit of Infinite Resources: We have asked the question, “What would the world look like with the elimination of artificial scarcity?”. Our work and play, elements which are sacred to our way of life, exist in pursuit of this end.
Participation, Inclusion and Accountability: All that exists is brought into being as a form of thought concentrated into action. The more highly leveraged our accountability is to each other as human life and higher consciousness, the greater and more profound we become. To not take part is to not exist. To be excluded is to not exist. To not exist in one place does not necessitate your existence, or the absence of your existence, in another. To have no accountability is to not exist. Those who need healing may resolve to, through their own realization or suggestion of others, to embrace a period of solitude.
