Human Supremacist or Anthroist symbol, one of many similar variants used throughout the Terragen Sphere

A memetic attractor, an extremist philosophical or ideological form of anthropism, which asserts that hu has dominion over all other forms of sentience, including sub-sophonts, splices, provolves, ai, and aliens.
Comes in a great many different varieties, from secular hi-tech asimovists to lo-tech anti-ai ludds to fundamentalist monotheistic religious groups. Contrary to popular stereotypes, most human supremacists abhor violence, and emphasise that non-hu sentients are always to be treated with kindness and politeness. Unfortunately, the many small radical hate groups affiliated with this attractor give liberal human supremacists a bad name

  • Human Liberation - Text by M. Alan Kazlev
    Generic term that encompasses a number of generally messianic sapient human factions, philosophies and religions that seek to overthrow ai and reinstate hu as lord of creation. They range from harmless cranks to minor terrorist extremists and hate groups. Owing to their lack of toposophic development they cannot do much harm, and are easily subverted. It is generally acknowledged that the only reason they are allowed by regional hyperturing administrators to exist is to contribute to the memetic rule of the Sephirotics.

    Information Age to Interplanetary Age umbrella movement for a number of genuine and bogus therapeutic techniques. These involved both individual and group practices and used psychoanalytical, mental, meditation, and/or physical techniques to help individuals develop emotionally and advance spiritually. By the close of the Interplanetary Age the original intention was long lost and in many cases the older movements had been replaced by a various factionalisted cults, some harmless and some otherwise.
