I am building such a meme-complex, it's called Zero.

Zero is designed to attack systems which seek to subjugate the human soul, particularly
and government.

The amount of work needed to be done is vast and I need volunteers in the following areas:

* Java programmers
* Artists
* Mathematicians
* (Quality) Mystics and Magickians
* People willing to spread the word, on and off the net
* Constructive critisim
