Welcome to CEStoicism

(Cybernetic Ecological Stoicism)

Our project aims to democratically organize a community around an ecologically- and socially-regenerative worldview.

We hope the conversation around these ideas will grow a self-sustaining dense network of trust, and form a dialogical spirituality

This site is organized as an entailment net. It is a collection of linked ideas, where the links show how one idea entails another. (Note: There are some unlinked ideas in the 'Node List' above that need to be linked in). Through a never-ending bootstrapping process, this net can be modified into a more coherent and self-reproducing expression. The CEStoicism community uses directly-democratic methods to create its own rules about how to change the community's net.

The current state of this worldview (at any time) is always a starting point, and is never a complete or unimprovable.

We are building a collaborative-knowledge commons (a resource + a community + a set of social protocols to maintain the resource and community for the long-term). The resource of this commons is both its worldview and its members' collaboration to maintain the worldview. CEStoicism is a mostly-philosophical worldview built of ideas from:

Please Note: This site meshes with the long pre-existing Principia Cybernetica website (PCw). Parts of this site links to parts of PCw. Because PCw was created long ago and by other people, we used web annotations to add links from parts of PWc to this site and to add notes to PCw pages. To be able to see those links and notes, create a free Hypothes.is↗ account, log in and search for "user:CEStoicism".
