Purpose: Engage the mission of an education practice treating the human condition. With the spirit of inquiry exorcise paradoxes possessing society: diagnose social conditions; treat societal trauma; provide a prognosis for progress; report and publish findings.

Functions: Perform diagnostic assessments of community needs, deliver treatment applications, recommend prescriptions, and provide a prognosis for sustainable progress delivered through education.

Serve as an originator of post-secular social science publications archived at the Bodleian Social Science Library of the University of Oxford, and the University of Cambridge Library.

Philosophy: The logic of secular modernity, and errors by postmodern deconstructions of rationales, secularists denying spiritual truths, and postmodernists inverting facts into falsehoods, and falsehoods into truth mocking that essence, have awakened a post-secular age where scientific and metaphysical beliefs together serve to improve the human condition.

Focus: Will civilization be fertilized by nature or cultivated in an enclosed garden? Open, natural society needs controls - but a closed, artificial one needs freedoms. When inviolable, natural order governs human affairs, then variety in need of education blossoms. If capricious authority farms order behind a garden wall, then among the unquestioning and fearful, are wild flowers to weed-out.
