Dawkins' model of evolutionary biology depicts the individual suborned
to the collective pattern of the species, relevant and meaningful only as part of a reproductive group,
fulfilling an totally disposable, pre-programmed role in the dark satanic mills of the genes.
It is part of the human condition to recognise our sysiphean enslavement, to struggle against
nature's empty promises, and utlimately to strive to throw off the dehumanising, statistically
mindless yoke of our developmental history.
That the individual is paramount over the collective, and that cooperation is
the most rewarding strategy for the individual, is central to interzone's
socio-economic system. Collective bodies are fundamentally different to individualsa father is
not a family; a nation is not its leader; a company is not a personand a
group exists only because the individuals which comprise it chose to interact
and associate with one another.
However, the benefits of mutual assistance, cooperation, ensuring one's neighbour
is as happy as oneself, of intimate friendship and love, unachievable by the
individual alone but following almost consequentially from human interaction, make that
choice an easy and richly rewarding one.
