Maarten Udema
PERSONAL STATEMENT

This website is filled with examples of the fabulous diversity and incredible beauty this world has to offer.

In order to be able to preserve this astonishing beauty on our planet and restore personal growth in a healthy way Mauph recognizes and has adapted values and principles that need attention in these times of threat and danger that we face. In life, business and communication these values and principles are a part of Maarten Udema and Mauph.

Some of the essentials of these values and principles we give attention to are:

- Indigenous Cultures
- The environment
- Social justice

This is to be able to protect us from:

- Political Disease
- Economic Infection
- Ecological Corruption

We intend to restore the fundamental necessities and environmental awareness of the species through the advocation of the most current understandings of who and what we truly are, coupled with how science, nature and technology (rather than religion, politics and money) hold the keys to our personal growth, not only as individual human beings, but as a civilization, both structurally and spiritually.

When we understand that all systems are Emergent and constantly in a state of evolution, along with the reality that we are all symbiotically connected to nature and each other in the most simple yet profound ways, forcing the realization that our personal integrity is only as high as the integrity of the rest of society, we then see how twisted and backwards our social establishments are and how their perpetuation is largely the cause of the social instability in society.

We invite you to wake up to the reality surrounding us and to make choices that will change the way we look at our self and this earth. Act. Speak up now. We are running out of time.

The reality is that we live in a society that produces Scarcity. The consequence of this scarcity is that human beings must behave in self preserving ways, even if it means they have to cheat and steal in order to get what they want. Scarcity is one of the most fundamental causes of aberrant human behavior, while also leading to complex forms of neurosis in other ways. A statistical look at drug addiction, crime and incarceration statistics, finds that poverty and unhealthy social conditions comprise the life experience of those who engage in such behavior.

It is the ultimate form of "Divide and Conquer" for at its very core are the assumptions that (1) We must fight each other in order to survive. (2) Humans must have this reward "Incentive" to do anything meaningful.

Mauph supports the values and principles as stated by the Zeitgeist Movement.
