In Essence Affirmation, Full Version:
1. [For all intents and purposes,] this body is participated
in by a(n) [individual/group.] This [individual/singlet/group]
has an organized means of operation and will continue in whichever
way is best for the [individual/group.] This is to be measured by
emotional, mental, and physical health of all members incorporated
in said group, whether they are people, fragments, soulbonds/muses/puppets,
2. [I/We] agree that [my/our] ongoing intent is to function
at or beyond the level of any other average individual in the society
around [me/us], being aware of [my/our] own needs and requirements
and taking [my/our] own action to fulfill them without requiring
external government. As long as [I/we] follow this agreement, [I/we]
can be counted upon to be aware of [my/our] own state of beings
and to be interested in [my/our] interactions with society. Until
[I/we] prove ourselves to be incapable of maintaining our basic
physical needs, [I am/we are] to assumed to be as capable as any
other physical body out there.
3. If [I/we] cannot restrain an individual's behavior, [I/we]
must still bear the results of said behavior and address it if it
has been decided to be a problem. [I/We] agree that the group
will take the consequences of the group. It is up to the group to
govern and accept the consequences of the group's behavior though
there may be individual action that was not representative of the
4. As long as [I/we] perform at a functional level, it is [my/our]
right to decide when and where [I/we] require external assistance.
[I/We] agree that it is the responsibility of the group to remain
functional. If, at any time, the group is not on a balanced keel,
it is up to [myself/us] to take action to repair this.
5. [I/We] agree that the group is expected to have the necessary
checks and balances to maintain a level of functionality and well-being.
We are expected to know when and how to manage the needs and desires
of the group's members. We do not need to seek treatment for the
existence of those we may not like, but we agree to do so if their
actions cannot be maintained and watched over by the group. It should
be assumed that we have said checks and balances present until disapproved.
6. As long as this agreement is carried by this group, [I/we]
will hold not only those of [myself/us] [I/we] know of to it, but
also those [I/we] do not. All members of this group can and
will be held to this declaration's intent if they are to interact
with matters externally and of the whole. If at any time, [I/we]
undergo a dramatic enough shift to warrant a redecision of keeping
to this agreement, it is [my/our] duty to declare that the affirmation
is no longer applicable and to reestimate said agreement and restate
if necessary. If enough of the group does not agree to the standard,
it must be canceled.
7. As long as [I/we] participate in the external world, [I/we]
will remember to respect other people for how they present themselves
to [me/us], regardless of if they are singlet or plural to whichever
degree. [I/We] will not measure [myself/ourselves] against other
people in terms of essence and rankings of superiority therein.
[I/We] will regard them upon the grounds of how they interact with
[me/us] and should be able to expect the same courtesy from them.
8. Until that time, [I/we] declare that we can be counted on
to operate with the goal of being a functional member of society
in mind and should be given the proper status therein, unrestricted
by the nature of [my/our] essential state. Those who interact with
[me/us] can expect that we operate with these standards in play
and will willingly repair problems if they arise. [I/We] will take
our consequences for [myself/the group] and will behave accordingly.
