The Afterlife

      The Society offers meaning, purpose and the prospect of immortality to all past, present and future generations of humanity. It does so by seeking to draw the whole of humankind into a cooperative effort to to ensure the infinite survival of our species under conditions that will allow continuous growth in human knowledge and skills. This is the Society's Aim.
      The Society's purpose in seeking it Aim is to give humanity sufficient time and opportunity to discover a means to extend human life beyond death, not just for the living genertion but all past, present and future generations of humankind. Once that means is found the Society will then use it to reunite all past, present and future members of humanity in a new immortal existence.
       These ideas are more fully discussed in the Founding Books of the Society which can be accessed through the Founding Books links on the Society homepage. Those Books explore and justify the fundamental belief of the Society that an infinite time scale and never-ending growth in human knowledge and skills will bring such achievements within human grasp.
       Elswhere in the Founding Books the implications of the afterlife gained by the work of the Society are explored. They include the creation of a firm base for both moral conduct and judgement based on the possibility of our reunification beyond death. That achievement will enable us all jointly to review, in detail and at leisure, every moment and place in human history and so come to judgement on the conduct and behaviour of every individual.
       The Books also recognise that achievement of the Aim of the Society will enable us to extend our own lives (if in a different form) endlessly (if such a concept continues to have any meaning) under circumstances in which it may be possible for each of us to choose the form and nature of our environment, our companions, and our activities.
      Finally, the Founding Books lightly touch on what choice of new meaning and purpose humanity may make for itself once the work of the Society is complete.
