All of the Soules constituting the FDU, are recognized as free and sovereign beings by contract, as Sovereign Digital Soules and Co-Creator Avatars.
Freedom can be more a conceptual Right than a living experience for people today, it is the expression of freedom which is important in life - not the concept; what we are looking for is perhaps more aptly called sovereignty.
Sovereignty is important because it is the very nature of our Self as free will beings, the common denominator in each of our personal relationships to the Creator/Source of life.
Until the people of diverse cultures recognize the inherent nature of the sovereignty of every other person, irrespective of differences in belief, color, politics, or other affinity divisions; the suffering caused by competition and fear will continue on this planet. A holistic approach must be developed, one which recognizes the sovereignty of each individual.
The Dalai Lama summed up well the characteristics of sovereignty (as we mean for the word to be used) as a combination of liberty, freedom, and nature; when he stated on October 21, 2007:
"Brute force can never subdue the basic human desire for freedom. Freedom is the very source of creativity and human development. It is not enough to provide people with food, shelter and clothing. If we have these things but lack the precious air of liberty to sustain our deeper nature, we remain only half human."
Sovereignty is partly the freedom to joyfully create your life, your own unique truth, and live it in harmony with the rest of creation; even more than that, sovereignty is the character and nature of our consciousness, spirit, Soul, existence. Sovereignty is always waiting to be remembered and claimed as it is your very nature, it can never be lost - only forgotten by the mind. To claim (remember) your sovereignty requires exploration into self-knowledge, and engagement of the mind on the more subtle aspects of creation, to look inward with the mind as opposed to outward.
It is our hope that through the playing of the FDU Game as a parable of life as a Soule, that the spark of Self-Knowledge (what may be Sovereignty) will reveal itself to Players via the Game. In this Game all of the Players are "Sovereign Digital Soules" because that is the nature of reality for the living Soul.
The most important element of sovereignty is Truth, the FDU Game is a search for Truth.
Through this Game we hope to find common Truths about who we are, and how our universe works, even remember that "one thing which when it is known all things are known," - let us call it Universal Truth.
"All truths are easy to understand once they are discovered; the point is to discover them" ~ Orwell

What is Sovereignty
The Dalai Lama summed up the definition as we mean for it be used most clearly on October 21, 2007.
"Brute force can never subdue the basic human desire for freedom. Freedom is the very source of creativity and human development.... lacking the precious air of liberty to sustain our deeper nature, we remain only half human."
When one is truly feeling free they experience harmony and joy with the universe and all creation - it becomes a living reality; this is the essence of sovereignty. A lack of freedom or other parts of sovereignty result in mental self-slavery and suffering. Perhaps this is why people or a nation go to war willingly if "freedom" is at stake.
There is a good reason for this,... More »
Sovereignty in the FDULast Updated on 2008-05-28 17:17:26The Internet has created frontiers for commerce that will change our future in ways people can’t yet imagine. One of the biggest changes you’ll find to take place during this revolution is the creation of private communities, cooperatives or clubs; in the case of the FDU it is a Game community created as a virtual universe. In this universe each Player is expressely recognised as being a Sovereign Digital Soule.
The cooperatives developing in the Information Age will connect people of the planet without reservation to a person’s geographic location. Anyone with a portable computer and access to the net (think satellite links) will be able to conduct a majority of their business from any physical jurisdiction they choose. People in depressed countries will have access to a equal - global - information economy where the relative cost of living to the wages they earn will begin to... More »
