The Preamble to the
of the Triple Nine Society
The Triple Nine Society is committed to friendship,
communication, the adventure of intellectual exploration,
and a greater realization of individual potentials. It neither
sanctions the imposition of one person's philosophy on another
nor subscribes to any particular philosophy for its members.
It will strive to avoid the insularity of mere exclusiveness.
The guiding principle of the Society is democratic and collegial
rather than hierarchical. The Society will remain open to
innovation and evolution.
