It all starts with a science fiction movie:
Once upon a time, there were a group of pearl people wandering around in the universe whose planet had long since perished. As a result, they are exiled to the space station to secretly learn from various cutting-edge technologies in the cracks between worlds.
Pearl people have a strange greeting of waving from the forehead, spreading the best idea to one another.
Pearl people took refuge in an inter-galaxial space station called Station for Open Cultures to learn not only technology, but also a cosmology. They seek wisdom, but also learn about peace and love. In this huge cosmic space station, we fasten our fist, not to retaliate, but to create. Generation to generation of education, sharing, heritage, these efforts only to rebuild the lost soul of home planet.
Come to this space and we welcome you to join us and learn to be the best "we" in an open, progressive, diverse and equal value.
Pearl community spirit :
Equal treatment for aliens,
Open and transparent
The tree of wisdom
The tree of wisdom is the source of wisdom, guided by the experience and accumulated knowledge of the ancestry. The tree will grow new branches every time a new partnership is formed.
Elders are responsible for conflict resolutions and facilitate the sustainable growth of the tribe
