WELCOME TO LIMITLESS EXISTENCE
Advancement of Civilization Effort (ACE) is a federal tax exempt 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded in 2012. At ACE's inception it took the form of a practical solution for a union between the objective and subjective sciences (a Grand Unified Theory, or GUT), however the scope of ACE is vast, and its vision has grown extensively since its foundation.
The umbrella project of ACE is to create and maintain a functioning semi-closed society (and civilization) over a period of 90 years, from 2012 to 2102, divided into three 30 year periods. As the total budget for this project requires a multi-billion dollar investment to be fully functioning, during the first 30 years we are primarily focused on building the funding necessary for our mission. The next thirty years are for building the facilities described in the Inhabit ACE project and in growing our member base. The third 30 years is aimed at the total implementation of the ACE vision. This vision has been written in a series of books by founder and chairwoman Alix Claire Erie, and is intended to be published in the near future.
Under the ACE and Inhabit ACE umbrella, our main projects are the Limitless Community, Combat Corruption, ACE Institute (including ACEpedia, Individual Advancement Assessment, Project Pendulum AI, and Children Play) and ACE Bank. For more details check out our project space at projects.advancementofcivilizationeffort.org/.
It is our primary intention to spread general awareness (awakened consciousness) and self-realization in the hopes of raising the bar on our current civilization and increasing global harmony. The Limitless Community is our concrete action in this respect.
We measure our progress primarily with the Kardashev Scale and the Kolhlberg Scale of Morality, and we are currently in the process of creating the of the Individual Advancement Assessment, a questionnaire for obtaining statistical data and analysis. Furthermore, the ACEpedia is a project that adds new words to our vocabulary to suit our changing paradigm and to use Neurolinguistic Programming for spreading enlightened consciousness.
The ACE Bank is our model for an economy that is supportive of harmony between our species and our ecosystem, and we propose the ACE Key as a unit of currency.
Finally, with the artificial transhumanism movement on our doorstep, our team has begun experimental design process for the development of devices and software to be used for training the mind for natural transhumanism evolution.
PANCHA KANCHUKAS: THE FIVE LIMITATIONS OF THE MIND
Pancha Kanchukas are Sanskrit words which literally translate to "five sheaths" or "five envelopes". The theory from Samkhya and Tantric philosophies is that together they act as a shell which veils the consciousness and separates the observing individual from its pure and absolute form. Each kanchuka limits the dynamic and creative power of the individual in a certain aspect, and it is one of the more transcendental goals of ACE to train the individual and collective mind of its member constituents to go beyond these aspects. They are stated as follows:
- Kalaa - that which limits the power to do all;
- Avidya vidya - that which limits the power to know all;
- Raga - that which creates desire and attachment, thus giving rise to unceasing discontentment;
- Kaala - that which limits perpetual existence by creating the notion of time, related to the changes in life, namely: birth, growth, ripening, waning, and perishing;
- Niyati - that which limits free will by creating the notion of fate and destiny, thus binding the individual to the endless cycle of birth and death.
I would like to give a warm welcome to my long-time friend, colleague, and right-hand man on many projects, Mathew. We met in Geneva in 2012 during an explosion of scientific and spiritual evolution partly fueled by the commencement of the LHC at CERN. Mathew has been one of my…
