Spirit Lights are spoken of by many names, in myriad languages, across diverse faith traditions, deeply ingrained within folklore and legend around the world. Real or not, throughout the ages, these supernatural lights have served as a storytelling device illustrating how a false but comforting, deeply held belief, can easily lead us on as if spellbound, to end in misery, bitter ruin, even death.
Hello from Oakland, CA. I am Muirén (sounds like moor-RAYN), pronouns She, Her, and I identify as African-American Trans, Gender Non-Conforming, Lesbian, Cooperative Enterprise and Product Architect, Advocate for Ecocentric Socially Responsible Technology.
My message is to the literate, deliberate, and thoughtful, those who see frontiers closer to earth as a higher priority than the orbital luxury hotels, interworld cruise ships, and Martian colonies the neo-Liberals imagine they can escape to after they have burned this world to the ground, murder-working millions for profit.
Instead of retreating to an imagined communal utopia, we must instead unite to secure the common good by renewing our covenant of equal justice and liberty for all. That demands a higher order of assumption testing, truth-seeking, disciplined reason and fact facing.
Our mission is a unique fusion of political drama and guerrilla theatre artfully employed to demonstrate how real-world villages, towns, or cities can transition to an adaptive, resilient, sustainable cooperative paradigm suited for life in an increasingly volatile world.
We are creating an intentional framework for all, deliberately inclusive of peoples historically disenfranchised by law and custom. To afford everyone the freedom of their native common sense without coerced assimilation, we allow no policy or law to be made nor exercised by adjudication based on cultural assumption or supernatural belief. The moment we seek to compel another to accept as fact, that which we accept by faith, we deny them the freedom we enjoy.
Our motto, “Economic Democracy for Social Democracy”, is grounded in our adaptation of Sociocracy, self-governance based on a unifying intentional common sense, a lingua franca of reason, culture as technology prioritised for the understanding of people in context, to optimise human strengths, accommodate human limitations.
Before us lay the prerequisite tasks of completing research and development for incorporation, site selection, and the construction of our community as a public-private living lab and living stage. And should you be inspired to commit your time, talent, and treasure to the continued organisation of this inception team, feel free to contact me directly at
