Reason and Purpose

Read up on the brights reason and purpose. The Dark Bright merely expresses a bright with additional qualifiers.

The movement's major aims are:
  1. Those currently held by all brights
  2. Promote knowledge and truth at all costs
  3. Promote tolerance and acceptance especially with respect to the intolerant
  4. To move in stealth and blend in slowly changing the course of events
  5. To promote a slow indocrination of bright understanding in the world
  6. Inevitably to manifest the science behind holistic ecstacy in a similar vein to the expressed by the hedweb - building the machines and changing the genetics of human to approach of point of maximal sustained ecstacy for all life forms
  7. To uncover the science needed to cure death in all forms
  8. To explore and understand the universe and human nature through a serious of sometimes strange and bizarre games

Are You a Dark Bright?

Think about your own worldview to decide if it is indeed free of supernatural or mystical deities, forces, and entities. Even so does the mysterious nature of qualia and reality itself still fascinate you and drive you to discovery? Do you often feel like you aren't quite human because of the way you understand the world? Does life seem often intensely ironic as though it is intrinsically so? If you decide that you fit the definition, then you can simply say so and join with us in this extraordinary effort to change society—the Dark Brights Movement.
