(3)...There would be no salaried positions or financial compensation to anyone for any reason. The only personal gain that one could receive would be recognition, love and acceptance from others, as well as elevation of one's own personal self-esteem through altruistic giving of oneself to the highest of principles and goals. The only motivation for being a member would be based on the pleasure or happiness derived from actively seeking truth, and on the contributions made toward the attainment of the organization's goals. The reward would be based on the knowledge that there is no human behavior that could have higher importance than the effort contributed to the society.
Individuals who have experienced a peak experience are the ones most likely to recognize within themselves the need to explore, understand and pursue truth with the final goal of applying the information gained to the benefit of all others. As more and more individuals have peak experiences there will be a growing number who share the common perspective outlined. It has been my personal experience that the greater my perceived understanding of reality and all of existence, the happier and more secure I have become and the more I feel stimulated to learn and discover. For a self-actualizing individual the seeking of truth and its application to humankind becomes more important than any other single facet of their existence. The greater one's global understanding of truth becomes, the greater one's ability to love and respect humankind. The more accurately reality is defined, the more effective our attempts to design a better civilization, enhance communication, improve our economic structure or succeed in any other project undertaken.
(4)...There would be no dues, but private donations would be accepted to help fund the purchase of any equipment needed for research or the running of the business.
(5)...The society would reject war, terrorism and other acts of violence as being inconsistent and counterproductive to the achievement of its goals. Force used against any individual, group or organization would be absolutely prohibited for any reason whatsoever.
(6)...It would most likely appeal to individuals who are spiritual and earnest seekers of truth. They will probably believe that science, religion and other disciplines have fallen short of providing the best approach for a way of living, even though each has unquestionably helped.
(7)...Although the scientific method must be a very important ingredient in the processing of acquired information, the creation and understanding of higher-order concepts must not be restricted to any one discipline. The great powers of the intuitive unconscious mind must be utilized and maximized to the fullest extent possible.
(8)...Any secondary goals can be potentially modified or added as the discovery of new truths dictate. The only goal which would remain ever-unchanged would be the primary goal, that being the "Quest In Search of the Theory of Everything."
(9)...The central premise of the organization is based upon a principle which far exceeds the importance of any leader or other individual personality. The structure of the group is non-hierarchical--leadership would correlate with group goals. Participants would be drawn from all walks of life. This should be a collective group effort made up of altruistic individuals, none of whom would ever become greater than the purpose of the organization itself.
