About Explorers Foundation

The Explorers Foundation exists to build a world fit for explorers and to fit ourselves to live in such a world.

The origin and ever active source of all well being is the explorer's love of tools of mind, hand, art, science, enterprise, and culture.

Exploration involves passionate interest in problems, and honest, determined, persistent, and playful search for solutions.

A characteristic of thriving explorations and of cultures rich with them is freeorder, a balance among designed and spontaneous orders supporting the testing of theoretical and practical conjectures, honest recognition & rapid correction of errors, and prolific emergence of new conjectures.

Ventures built around this concept are freeorder generators, or forges, words chosen to summon images of places of work and play devoted to finding and crafting goods of mind and spirit meaningful and useful to explorers. Such ventures have and will change the world.

The future of humanity depends on the provision of goods strengthening critical thought and bold venture, thereby avoiding catastrophic reliance on cultural entities whose continuing dominance depends on and benefits from narrowing of thought, expression, and action.

Forges develop and support the emergence of freeorder within individuals, organizations, and cultures, with the hope and expectation to catalyze a rising surge of mind and spirit that will carry us to a new land.

Explorers Foundation is one of many forges.
