from the website:
Our Mission is to Prevent the Loss of Fringe Thought, to keep lit the Fire of Impossibility, to find that which lay Undiscovered beneath Dust and Sediment, out of Sight and Forgotten.
Missing time was recorded and we are witness after the fact.
Its Products Whisper to Us across Timespace.
It is our Mission to Thwart the all too common Demise of Things, Stories, Ideas, which may not fit History's Master Narrative.
We crave the Archaic and Arcane, the Strange , the Paranormal, the Outer Edge, the Little Known , those Things imbued with Magical Properties, the Folkloric, the Homemade, the Story-told, the Other World-ly, Left-Field.
We Embrace failures because they show us what is possible.
We Seek to find Lost Things.
We Value as Treasure That which was made by Conscious Hands, human or Otherworldly.
The Society collects That Which was Left Behind.
The Society Quests for That Which Nature Hath Wrought.
The Society Looks for the Connection Between Chance and Design.
We Covet the Link between Story and Artifact.
We seek Evidence, first-hand Accounts, Second Hand Stories, but reject thirdhand reproductions unless accompanied by Reputable Documents for Verification.

We must Collect and Preserve Cultural Detritus with Cult Followings.

To Research and Dig.

Our Cultural Destiny is to Archive and Preserve the Moments That Went Missing,
The time that was over looked.

What we thought we Knew yesterday may no longer hold true today or tomorrow.
The Onion of time Hungers for its skins to be peeled back, Left Nude, Exposed and Vulnerable.
In our Urgency, We remember that To the Latecomers are Served the Bones.
