What are the principles behind the community?

This has been mentioned numerous times  before but in different forms the core principles, as opposed to purpose, are an ethical (e57), patient, humble, responsible group of researchers whose principle aim is to alleviate the suffering of mankind where it exists, to prepare for the unexpected, and to help the next generations live the best life possible.

These principles translate into everyday life by each member being a hard working, inventive compassionate person who calmly debates and discusses with fellow members.
