Re: [furries-290] A Few Ambitions

Thank you!

I will first pursue a career in mathematics, and see if i cant break
into the finance or actuarial business, we'll see.

Once I have a considerable nest egg built, I will begin building a
nerve center command HQ here on Earth to act as a home base, then I
will work hard to earn enough money to begin working with SpaceX and
other space programs to begin the effort to colonize the moon.

There is a lot of titanium and exotic metals, very valuable for many
purposes, I keep hearing. I'll definitely do more research, but who
wouldn't find the idea of building a city on the moon unattractive?

Since I made a new account on, I can only post three
messages in a 24 hour period to this list, so this email will be long
as I try to get as much out of the limited email number as possible.

I am also considering the idea of building Arx Ferae Station, a
refueling depot space station in the second langrangian point.

We could build casinos, condos, hotels, and more, though our primary
focus would be refueling and astronomic research.

Though I have said this before, to my friends on skype, and I'll say it
again, I want to build a place to call home, a stronghold, so that we
can integrate with wider society on OUR TERMS, from a position of
strength and power, so we do NOT have to sacrifice our beautiful
culture and society for the comfort of foreign powers.

Rather than forcing the furry fan community to rush in headfirst into a
cruel and unforgiving world where money and power are all that matters,
we can actually stand a good chance at building a society and culture
with financial strength and political power, a stronghold and citadel
of furry society and order, to allow us to protect our beautiful
culture and celebrate our values and differences, rather than hide them
in shame.

THIS is why. This is why I wish to incorporate Arx Ferae, 
the Wild Citadel. This is my ambition.

Arx Ferae would allow furs to have an entire city and physical society
and infrastructure to celebrate furry culture and society, a place to
retreat to if no other place will take you.

Arx Ferae would call to you when you have no other place to go.

Arx Ferae would be home, when you have no home. Arx Ferae would provide
a headquarters, a central nerve center to organize the effort to expand
furry culture, but also to reach for the stars.

It would be great to have a furry convention on the moon. The idea makes me smile.

but yeah, I'm really excited about this. Mathematics is going to be fun!
