Who are the Lancers?
The Lancers are a group of folks who have decided to get together
and devote a large portion of their lives to furthering equality
of types. We come from many different backgrounds and many different
beliefs. We also happen to host, build, update, and run the Pavilion
What is the difference between the Lancers and Pavilion?
Pavilion is a place for people to get together and help familiarize
themselves and society around them with the topic of healthy and
equal plurality. You don't have to be a Lancer to be a part of it;
Lancers just happen to also entertain themselves in the back room
by talking about a unified interface for philosophies too.
Because, you know, it helps to at least have a common language
to get along with, or at least politely disagree.
What is the Lancer's Codex?
The Codex is a set of principles, definitions, essays, and a simple
code of etiquette by which Lancers guide ourselves in our day-to-day
lives and in our actions to bring healthy plurality to the attention
of the general public. It stores our working definitions
of plurality and also ideas of how to bridge the gaps when people
have trouble understanding.
We commonly use the catchphrase, 'all fires are equal.' In other
words, we believe that, no matter what the source, no matter what
the type, there is no inherant superiority or inferiority.
Not everything in the Codex is carved in stone. There is room
for discussion and redefinition if need be. What is unchanging
is our acknowledgement of:
* The universal equality of singlets, multiples, and medians in
* A unified standard of plurality, including clear definitions
of singlet, median, plural, and soulbonding as it relates to these:
and a philosophy of life in terms of responsibility, as outlined
in In Essence.
Members of Pavilion are invited to join the Lancers if they are
willing to sign the In Essence Pledge, study the Codex and work
toward the common goals. The difference between Pavilion and the
Lancers is that members of Pavilion hold to many different philosophies
and ideas about plurality: the Lancers are unified by the standards
of the Codex.
