无以计数的词汇被创造出来描绘社会的集合,人民、大众、人群、群众、诸众,阶级等等。越是从上而下的权力布署就喜欢调动这些词汇,知识分子与民粹主义者几乎同样热情的表达对这些词汇的爱好。它们出现在各种传播媒介上,网络技术的发展使得它们愈来愈精采地指涉与它们的恰恰相反的事务,菁英、少数、小众、资产阶级集团的偏好。如今,我们企图重新构造这些词汇的内容,目的不在于绘制词汇的正确意涵,相反地,我们要歧义它们直到不同面貌出现为止。用植物的比喻来说,我们在找寻社会动力结构的种子,而非花朵。我们希望建构一个生产开放性的平台,让内容发布具有更大的影响力与散布力,全部开源取用。然而,我们并不想倡导个人英雄主义般来推销成功改变世界的方略,「虽万人而吾往矣」是新自由主义道德加上科学研发至上复杂的合体。取而代之的,我们想看到一个群体如何在与其它群体交往中,展开知识与实践的自我学习,动员力的自主与连结。我们将从亚洲范围开始,在网站上建立群体交往的档案。以此开始,诸众方现。

Innumerable words have been created to describe the social gatherings, e.g. the people, the public, the crowds, the masses, the multitude, the class, etc, all of which are preferably used by the top-down power deployments. Moreover, intellectuals and populists also express their preference for these words with almost the same enthusiasm. With the development of network technologies, these words have appeared on various media and meanwhile have increasingly and brilliantly referred to totally opposite affairs, i.e. preferences of the elites, the minority, and the bourgeoisie groups. Now, we attempt to restructure the contents of these words, with the purpose of making ambiguous meanings till they take on varied faces rather than portraying their correct meanings. Metaphorically speaking, what we are searching for is the seeds of social powers structures, rather than flowers.

We want build a interdisciplinary platform, making our publications more influential, dispersible, and open documents as well as free access. However, our ideas are different with which advocates the strategy of changing the world with individual heroism. “Despite millions of people, I go straight bravely”; this is a complex mixture of Neo-liberal morality and scientific R&D supreme. Nevertheless, what we expect to see is how a group of people make self-study of knowledge and practice in association with other groups, for the autonomousness and junction of mobilization forces have always been a mainline of people and thoughts that we has concerned. We will start form Asia to establish the archives of group interactions on the website. Every archive will contain complete video records and in-depth discussions. We begin with them, till we have faces.
