This Declaration of Trust made on the 21st of September 1992 and re-written on the 21st September 2014, recognises the Earth as a centre of development for life as we know it.
Each signatory to this trust recognises the Earth (planet) as a sphere of development for life (life as in consciousness ~ not the maintenance of our bodies corporate through consumption and killing, although also the later).
Our capacity for development and education being ensured by the variety of forms within our knowledge. Destruction of any form is to be considered carefully due to the possible loss of variety and possible stagnation.
As capacity for development and education is fed by the array of forms within the knowledge, destruction of any form bringing a depletion to this array is to be avoided. Hence actions are to be considered carefully due to the possible loss of variety and consequent degradation to the array each lives .
There follows the aims on what a person would focus their thoughts and action upon
