The Tellus Nova Foundation was founded in 2017, and is a non-profit 501(c)(3) public benefit corporation. While it stems from much earlier efforts, the TNF did not begin to build a public presence until 2017. The organization was created to assist economically disadvantaged people with dreams to start their own business, pursue scientific projects, to develop talents in the arts, and drive to make the world a better place, by providing them with grants, stipends, and work experience they need to achieve those dreams.
Our organization exists to shape a more peaceful, prosperous, and enlightened world, by developing businesses to fund the economic, cultural, infrastructural, and ecological development of communities that can be used as models for the world to follow.
Our organization continually endeavors to help spread a global culture of individual identity, proactive thinking, rationalism, introspection, and critical thinking, in tandem with tangible projects to assist economically disadvantaged people in starting their own businesses, or pursuing educational goals. We believe that this is the path towards world peace and unity, to give people the real life opportunities they need, while encouraging the mindset needed to achieve their goals in the face of adversity. By creating a more positive environment for people, we can create a more positive future.
Ultimately, our goal is to transition our organization into the organizing body of a global society within the preexisting countries of the world, and to work within the legal confines of preexisting governments, to offer our own services across the globe, and in this way, with worldwide influence, we can bring the world together towards a default confederation of peace, prosperity, and enlightenment.
Who We Are
We are a group of individual men and women, people who think for ourselves and want to encourage others to do the same. Our mission can be summed up as a form of secular millenarianism. We do not have a common dogma and we are not ideologues. We discuss, debate, and even argue over our own goals, mission, concepts, and general philosophy and social models. Our organization has grown and developed itself on these discussions and debates, on the questioning of our own beliefs and sensations of truth. We not only encourage you to question your own beliefs and truths, but we encourage you to question our ideas, and to help us develop our concepts, beliefs, and truths.
This is how we grow to come closer to a sense of objectivity, and ultimate truth, by being open-minded intellectually honest enough to accept being wrong. It is the power of our organization’s individual diversity that brings us forward, towards accomplishing our goals, challenging and developing our goals and methods, and coming closer to understanding the great complexity of the universe in which we live.
By starting our own business ventures, and partnering with others, we can continue to develop a base of funding, in order to provide grants for economically disadvantaged people to start their own businesses, go to school, and work on projects in the arts and sciences. We will use our businesses and partnered businesses to provide employment for seniors and economically disadvantaged individuals struggling to find work.
To help generate the funds we need to increase our organization’s self-sufficiency, and accomplish our long-term goals, we will work to create a cultural movement that encourages critical thinking, rationalism, and individual identity. We believe, that if we produce reading materials, and work to spread the idea that the only true divisible unit among the human species is the individual and our own experience of life, that the conflicts that occur between cultures can be overcome.
If we can develop our base of funding to an adequate level, our tangible efforts to assist local governments and other non-profits in the development of communities, combined with our intangible effort to encourage people to move away from tribalism and towards rationalism, to think critically, and to identify as individuals rather than to identify as a group, global peace and prosperity will be significantly more realizable.
