I collected a few "Virian Axioms", which I guess are related to this topic. Here they are:

"Complexity must be grown from simple systems that already work."

"evolution is the non random selection of randomly varying
replicators." -- Richard Dawkins, _???_

If truth is the goal, rationality is the way

No mysteries are sacrosanct, no limits unquestionable; the unknown will yield to the ingenious mind. -- Max More

All true isosemantic statements about objective reality are non-contradictory.
(much more than virian -- this is a scientific axiom)

Lucifer, the bringer of light, represents the open questioning of all dogma; the power of doubt to cut through crap; ultimatly, lucifer is a symbol for the failabilty of humankind, and the consequences thereof.
