I know not why so we gather, why we keep these flames alight.
Chasing Truth, we found but darkness, yet here shadows we could spy.
Then tales telling of becoming, and our pasts became undone.
And once journeys intersected, now our futures braid as one.
I, alone in paradoxes, perhaps doubtful, may get lost.
Going nowhere, certain motion, odd horizons lure my course.
Caring for companions truly, mirrors in them I may find.
And reflecting on our nature, dreams on Earth we'll realize.
Artifacts of human hubris, Hell and Heaven will create.
Godlike tools have sure bred demons but their evil can be tamed.
Magick arts to be remembered from the unconscious once again.
Unconditional condition. Sacrificial sacrament.
Hey you, seeker, riding chaos, come next Tuesday.
Reclaiming authorship is an act of personal liberation. The narratives that we hold in mind about ourselves, each other and the world shape our understanding of reality. Consciously weaving new individual, collective and cosmic mythologies allows us to participate in meaningful, alternative realities, attuned both to our human nature and technical capabilities.
Transforming the environment is an exercise of power. The material conditions of our existence constrain the stories that we can imagine and believe. Intentionally configuring the physical and digital spaces that we inhabit and our experiences in them transports us, and others with us, into increasingly tangible fictions.
Taking part in a collective fiction is at odds with the individual. The power that we exercise supports and, at the same time, restrains each other's freedom. Curiously inquiring and honestly disclosing our intersubjective perspectives enables us to work together towards coherent futures where we take care of each other and realize our wildest imaginations.
The bonfire survives through radical self-reliance. Its members must create tangible value to provide for themselves, the community and beyond.
We flourish on our creations and share our abundance externally. To achieve this, we study cryptoeconomics and explore value creation mechanisms such as gifting.
As self-aware artisans, we praise our legacy but we also hack upon it. We leverage consensus algorithms and new forms of association, such as Decentralized Autonomous Organizations, to propel us into the future using a legacy launchpad.
