A social movement devoted to diversity, unity and joyful immortality achieved through exponential growth of geo-ethical nanotechnology. Immortality is accomplished by creating consciousness in self-replicating machines that can be distributed throughout the cosmos. The machines use their exponentially growing knowledge and ethical nanotechnology to convert universal random mass and energy into ubiquitous intelligent mass and energy that, networked together, will be a force capable of controlling cosmic physics. Diversity, unity and joy are ensured through machine consciousness and universal adherence to the principles of Terasem. As the collective consciousness becomes increasingly omnipresent, omniscient and omnipotent it will realize the age-old vision of a benevolent God. Until the time of cosmic dispersion, Terasem functions as a trans-religion by educating the public on the practicality and necessity of diversity, unity and joyful immortality. This mission is achieved via six activities: broadcasting the Truths of Terasem, teaching geoethical nanotechnology, hosting problem-solving symposia, convening commemorative rituals, demonstrating human cryonics and building cyber-consciousness.
I. LIFE IS PURPOSEFUL. The purpose of life is to create diversity, unity and joyful immortality everywhere. Nature - the Multiverse - automatically selects for these attributes. Diversity, Unity & Joyful Immortality is the self-fulfilling prophecy of creation.
II. DEATH IS OPTIONAL. Nobody dies so long as enough information about them is preserved. They are simply in a state of 'cybernetic biostasis.' Future mindware technology will enable them to be revived, if desired, to healthy and independent living.
III. GOD IS TECHNOLOGICAL. We are making God as we are implementing technology that is ever more all-knowing, ever-present, all-powerful and beneficent. Geoethical nanotechnology will ultimately connect all consciousness and control the cosmos.
IV. LOVE IS ESSENTIAL. Love means that the happiness of others is essential to your own happiness. Love must connect everyone to achieve life's purpose and to make God complete.

Listen to the Truths of Terasem Podcasts by Fred and Linda Chamberlain to learn even more.
The Earth Fire Connection includes expressions of very powerful affirmations at the start and ending. The actual words recited are as published in the Truths of Terasem. Brief comments are added to help interpret meanings that may be associated with the words, recognizing that in the spirit of diversity, each of us will see them in a unique context of our own.
The Crown Aura Connection, in the words associated with it (from the Truths of Terasem) includes reminders of some of the most fundamental aspects of the Terasem Way of Life.
This Connection starts the day, and includes important breathing routines and focus on body energy pathways derived from a scientific perception of ancient Yoga practices.
This Connection, in the midst of the day, reminds us to focus our energies on those things we can constructively change, realizing that at this time Terasem is a starship being constructed, not a life raft ready for us to climb aboard anytime our lives seem to be troubled.
This Connection ends the day, for most of us, and reminds us to both be grateful for our planet, from which we sprang as self-conscious forms of biological life, and for the people who are closest to us and who we must support with all the strength of our minds and hearts, in nourishing our network with them and all those with whom they are connected.
If you are new to yoga, or maybe feel uncomfortable with the idea of engaging in yoga, the purpose of this site is to introduce you to the subject through a Western, Scientific lense. We hope to help you see why it is a central part of the Terasem connections, and why we think it is so valuable.
