Decentralized Government and Resource Based Economy.
Former crew of UMF fleet that got together to restore faith in humankind.
Our ship was sent on final mining operation before trip to Alioth, but we were left behind. Never made it on board of Arkship.
Shortly before Earth was destroyed there was chaos and disorder among those who left. Humankind shown its worst nature once again.
The Group of Elite Space Engineers and Scientists involved in construction of Arkship decided to try to gather enough resources, seek new chance to get to planet Alioth. After modifying engines and following The Arkship trails, joined the rest of pioneers of this brave new world shortly after.
Remembering what happened back on Earth we have decided not to obey UMF rules anymore and create society based on the model that was born back in 21 century. We believe, that Project Reborn should start fresh. Abandon all old ideas that kept humankind enslaved for so many centuries. The supernova discovery was a disaster that not only destroyed our home but held us back from implementing new social ideas despite great technological advancements. It was always politics of fear and danger.
Now since we have fresh start there is a time better than ever to advance to the next level. Most of the population that survived was fed with wrong version of history, propaganda and brainwash stories. Too excited of the promise of new life, to know, what UMF really is and what kind of future it holds for them.
We were the last hope of the old world. And we are the only hope of the new one.
Who does not know history is doomed to repeat it.
If you are awaken, if you remember, join us!

[PL] IV - notatka z holo zapisu
Kiedy opadł pył bitewny, Wysłaliśmy na poszukiwanie ciał nasze transportowce. W trakcie poszukiwań poległych, okazało się że we wraku obcego statku znajdują się resztki maszyn posiadających oznakowania ziemskich korporacji. Wtedy zajrzeliśmy do historii ziemi i z jej przeszłości wyczytaliśmy. 200 lat przed naszą podróżą na ziemi wybuchł konflikt między AI a ziemianami. Konflikt wygrali ziemianie, a resztki AI zniszczyli. Skąd znaleźli się w kosmosie ?

[EN] IV - note with holo write:
When the battle dust fell, we sent our transports in search of the bodies. During the search for the dead, it turned out that in the wreckage of a foreign ship there are leftovers of machines bearing the markings of Earth's corporations. Then we looked into the history of the earth and read it from its past.200 years before our trip on earth, there was a conflict between AI and landowners. The conflict was won by landowners, and the remains of AI were destroyed. Where did they come from in space?
[PL] III - notatka z holozapisuPo paru latach lotu statku nastąpiła niespodziewana awaria. Kapitan "Space Empire" musiał awaryjnie wyłączyć hiper napęd. "SE" utknęło w nieznanym systemie. Aby rozładować napięcie kapitan zorganizował przyjęcie -halloween.Niestety na horyzoncie pojawiły się nieznane sygnatury, które jak sugerował wygląd statków nie miały zamiarów pokojowych. Rozpoczęła się pierwsza bitwa poza układem słonecznym.
[EN] III - note with holo write:
After a few years of flight the ship had an unexpected crash. "Space Empire" captain had to break the hyper drive. "SE" was stuck in an unknown system. To unload the tension the captain arranged a party - Halloween.Unfortunately on the horizon appeared unknown signatures,Which, as suggested by the appearance of the ships, was not intended to be peaceful. The first battle was outside the solar system.
[PL] Dziennik pokladowy "Baltica"
Tuż po opóżnionym starcie naszej załogi dostaliśmy sygnał od "Space Empire" że zdolali zmodyfikować swoje silniki na czas i dołączą do floty w pogoni za Arkship. Okno sie zamyka, sygnatura silników Arkship jest coraz słabsza i każde opożnienie może zaprzepaścić nasze szanse na przetrwanie. Nie wiemy jeszcze ile statków jest gotowych do ucieczki.
Spogladając w stronę Saturna zobaczyliśmy jak grawitacja słońca zniekształcila jego pierscienie. Czasu jest coraz mniej. Ale zdecydowaliśmy czekać do ostatniego momentu, może jeszcze ktoś sie odezwie. Zostawiliśmy za sobą cała flotę statków roboczych i inżynieryjnych którzy nie mają pojęcia że Arkship już wyruszył.
"Space Empire" wysłało transmisje, ale nie dostaliśmy jeszcze żadnej informacji zwrotnej czy kto kolwiek ją otrzymał.
[EN] Journal log "Baltica"
Soon after our delayed start of our crew we have recieved a signal from "Space Empire". They managed to modify their engines on time and joining a feel to persuit Arkship. The window of opportunity is closing. Signature of Arkship engines getting weaker and any further delay may ruin our chances.
We look back at Saturn and see how neutron star gravity bending its rings already. Time is running up. However we have decided to wait a bit longer. We have left behind entire fleet of work and construction ships that they have no idea that Arkship is on its way already.
"Space Empire" send the signal but we don't have any confirmation from anybody if that was recieved.

[EN]What is DU:
The game offers banal stories, as a representative of the surviwal species. Namely, we play one of the last survivors of the ship "Ark", which lands on an unknown planet to begin the reconstruction of civilization. The landing craft creates a safe zone around it - a force field.The field provides us with protection and oxygen, but as every power has its limited power, we are forced to go to explore the planet. And here begins the game. We will decide on the career, tasks, and, of course, the construction of voxel ships. We are looking forward to the successor of SE and Empyrion.

[PL] II - notatka z holozapisu
Podróż trwa... transmitujemy do wszystkich statków by zdążyć na czas. Jednocześnie nasi inżynierowie pracują nad modyfikacjami silników wg przesłanych instrukcji z "Baltica". Nasz statek nigdy nie miał opuścić układu słonecznego. Jego militarne przeznaczenie skupiało sie głównie nad chronieniem Arkship, w czasie budowy na wypadek ataku Rebeliantów czy prywatnych statków próbujących sabotażu lub nielegalnego przemytu pasażerów.
Skąd te modyfikacje? Skąd ta nagła zmiana planów 3 miesiące przed startem? Inżynierowie z "Baltica" przesłali nam informacje że dowództwo spanikowało i opuści układ słoneczny przed czasem. Wszyscy członkowie załóg pracujących przy budowie Arkship mieli mieć zapewnione miejsce na pokładzie. Okazało sie że chcą nas zostawić w tyle. Inżynierowie, którzy budowali silniki FTL zdołali jednak znaleźć sposób na podróz. Planowali podążaniem nawet mniejszej klasy statkami za śladem świetlnym pozostawionym przez Arkship, ale potrzebne są niezbędne modyfikacje naszych silników.
Wiemy ze "Baltica" jest juz gotowa, my pracujemy nad naszymi, reszta? Wszystko jest w naszych rekach! Próbujemy uratować ilu sie da.
[EN] II - note with holo write:
The journey continues ... we transmiting on all channels to all ships to make it on time. At the same time our engineers working on engine modifications based on intructions sent by "Baltica". Our ship was never designed to leave our Solar System. It's military purpose focused on protecting Arcship against rebels or private ships trying to sabotage our mission or smuggle illegal pasengers.
Why modifications? Why so sudden turn of events 3 months before start? Engineers from "Baltica" sent us information that higher command panicked and decided to leave Solar System before deadline. All members of all crews suppose to be on board of Arkship. It turned out they want to leave us behind. Engineers who helped to build FTL engines however, figured out the way how to modify our engines and follow the light trail of Arkship.
So far we know "Baltica" is ready, we still working on ours.. what about the rest? It's all in our hands now. We trying to resque as much people as we can.
[PL] I - notatka z holo zapisu:
Dzisiaj otrzymaliśmy niepokojącą transmisje od "Baltica" wykonujących pracę inżynieryjne na Arkship. Chcą abyśmy przekazali ją dalej do reszty statków zlokalizowana w okolicach pasu asteroidów zbierając zapasy materiałów potrzebne do podroży. Załoga "Imperium" była w trakcie ćwiczeń bojowych. Nasz statek jest jednym z nielicznych który miał zapewnioną eskorte Arkship na wypadek sytuacji bojowych. Od przekazania tej informacji zależy życie wielu załóg, które przez pokolenia budowały Arkship.
[EN] I - note with holo write:
Today we have recieved unsetling transmision from "Baltica" performing engineering work on Arkship. They want us to pass this transmision to the rest of the fleet localised near Asteroid Belt that is currently collecting resources for the trip. Our Crew of "Imperium" was in the middle of military excercises. Our Battleship is one of very few war ships providing escort to Arkship in case of military intervention. Many lives of those who built Arkship from generations, depends on sending this information over.
Good read recommended for those who would like to familiarize themselves with our status-quo.
Here to sum it up.
"Social power vs State power.
Social power is man’s power over nature, his cooperative transformation of nature’s resources and insight into nature’s laws, for the benefit of all participating individuals. Social power is the power over nature, the living standards achieved by men in mutual exchange.
State power, as we have seen, is the coercive and parasitic seizure of this production—a draining of the fruits of society for the benefit of nonproductive (actually antiproductive) rulers.
While social power is over nature, State power is power over man.
Through history, man’s productive and creative forces have, time and again, carved out new ways of transforming nature for man’s benefit. These have been the times when social power has spurted ahead of State power, and when the degree of State encroachment over society has considerably lessened.
But always, after a greater or smaller time lag, the State has moved into these new areas, to cripple and confiscate social power once more."
And once again, this virtual game scenario is a perfect example, when by default 99% of organisations will excercise what we all know is happening not only in real life but from what we have learn during our and our's grandparents live time. We don't know any better...
This is not real world. Just simplified simulation when Resouce Based Economy and Social Power make even more sense than ever in order to succeed.

The Reborn Project proposes an alternative vision of what the future can be if we apply what we already know in order to achieve a sustainable new world civilization. It calls for a straightforward redesign of our culture in which the age-old inadequacies of war, poverty, hunger, debt and unnecessary human suffering are viewed not only as avoidable, but as totally unacceptable. Anything less will result in a continuation of the same catalog of problems inherent in today's world. People of Antioch may enjoy new start, low population levels and last 500 years would render this idea ahead of it's time once again. But we are not delusional and remember problems that humankind faced and is set to repeat in new world.

Evidence shows that most of our behavior is determined by the environment we live in. Changing the environment also results in change in behavior in the long run. People remaining longer periods of time in a certain environment would absorb more from that environment and in time they will behave more in accordance with their surroundings. Today people traveled to the new world in search for an environment that they consider suitable for them — with others who share similar values.
The values prevalent in our society have been inherited from previous generations but the environment we live in is very different. Electricity, vaccines, waste management systems, Internet, nanotechnology, space engineering etc... have contributed to a vast change of environmental factors but many people around the world today still hold on to the values of the past even though these values do not yield positive outcomes.
Our values are superimposed upon us through every aspect of our experience, movies, education, books, TV, Internet, teachers, role models, subcultures, religion, home life and more. The values given to us are to perpetuate the social system we live under. The manipulation and control is so subtle that we think it comes from within while being reinforced with notions of individuality to believe this.
What we need is a value system that corresponds with the physical reality and one that would facilitate our development towards a saner culture.
Our values are largely determined by the culture we live in. Organisations around the new world offer different standards of living depending on the resources they manage but they also require their citizens and visitors to follow the established order. What might be considered standard practices in some cultures, in others these practices might be considered extremely socially offensive. Capital punishment is still practiced in many countries around the world today whereas in others, this absolutely ineffective practice has been surpassed.
Values are also determined by the methods of thought used in managing the people and the resources in a particular culture. Dictatorships often use theistic methods of indoctrination to make people believe that the established order works for their best interest. Democracies, on the other hand, use manipulative tactics to indoctrinate their populations into believing that individuals have an array of choices but in fact this array is extremely limited compared to what can be accomplished if humanity uses science and technology intelligently.
Nowadays, there are different socio-economic systems around the world but we can see that the values prevalent in all cultures have been inherited from past generations and are, to a certain extent, detrimental when applied in our modern society. Moving forward into a saner future requires that we design an environment that facilitates our social growth into an emerging global society.
Designing Optimal Environments
The ancient values, inherent in our social structure from past generations, emerged from a hostile environment based on extreme scarcity. Today we experience a very different environment but we rely on an outdated value system which causes the problems that we experience in our everyday lives. In order to surpass this elementary level in our evolution we need to design an environment that reinforces constant value update.
In a Resource Based Economy the main focus is on the people and the environment. Producing a high standard of living for all human beings while restoring, preserving and enriching the environment around them requires the use of science and technology and also requires a higher degree of efficiency.
Access centers care for the needs of the people by offering all available goods and services free of charge. Automated transportation offers fast, safe and reliable travel across the entire city and between cities and even interplanetary settlements, for a fraction of the time. Education designed to bridge the differences between people offers different perspectives and facilitates continuous cultural learning resulting in overall positive human and environmental impact.
The moral standards of past generations do not offer solutions for present social challenges. It is not enough to label people ‘good’ or ‘bad’ anymore as we know that environmental factors largely determine their behavior. Half of all food production ends as waste while famine is still a major problem around the world. Creating abundance of energy by using renewable sources is possible today but a quarter of the world’s population still lives with no access to electricity. Most people are still strongly attached to the notion of ownership even though they would prefer to stay in a luxury hotel that offers maximum comfort. We still respect biblical notions such as ‘Those that don’t work, shouldn’t eat’ even though most recent technological and scientific advancements that make our lives better result from the efforts of very few men and women. The present state of morality is outdated, full of contradictions and based on ancient practices that yield detrimental results if applied today. The methods of science can be used to determine a functional morality and this exercise will demand that we reevaluate our entire notion of what makes us human.
From the very early stages of human evolution, humankind has always tried, where possible, to improve its standard of living depending on resource availability. Evidently, some parts of the world with environments more suitable for human development have produced the complex social systems of the present. A couple of centuries ago humans discovered the methods of science and the result was exponential increase in the standard of living for a selected few. Today we are faced with a similar decision – to move forward to the next phase of our social evolution – an emerging global culture that uses science and technology to intelligently manage its planetary resources for the betterment of all planetary inhabitants. The incentive for problem solving will emerge naturally as people see the positive results of their contributions and they will protect the environment as they understand that the ideas for most solutions also come from it and our existence depends on it. Climate change, nuclear armament, increasing environmental pollution, and constant conflicts between individuals and nations demand that we use scientific tools and methods for problem solving as today’s global challenges demand a global approach from an integrated perspective.PS: Nasza korporacja Zrzesza międzynarodową ekipę ale mamy aspiracje tworzyć Polskie Community
