My dear friends, welcome to the Daimon Club fantastic and eclectic world. One of the most sincere outpost where you will be able to meet the surrealistic inheritance. (To read more about surrealism) But first of all let me tell you what kind of place you have just got in. As a matter of fact our club it's a cultural association founded in 1997 by Carl William Brown in order to promote his literary works, but it's not just that. It's also a virtual meeting place made up by more than seven hundred pages, concerning almost every sort of subject.
Our native place is in Brescia, a town situated in the north of Italy, precisely near the Lake of Garda, one of the largest lake in Lombardia. Of course Italian is our mother tongue but since we are perfectly conscious of the importance of the english language we have decided to translate several parts of our site, but unfortunately not everything; it would be too much expensive for us, also because our association is composed by ten web site put together!
So in this introduction I am going to tell you why we decided to call our association "Daimon Club" and how our web site is structured. Let's start from the name " Daimon " that has a greek origin and means "genius" or "spirit". It was a kind of personal guide which used to talk to a person in his dreams. Most famous in the western history is the Socratic Daimon, and so we picked up that name because we intended to create a community of persons who wanted to develop their artistic and intellectual knowledge following the spirit of the new born internet world.
Our main goal is that of improving our communication abilities, since we believe that the real essence of the web is that of linking together all the best human resources in order to struggle to create a better world to live in. So we decided to put together our forces and began to create our house on the web. Surrealism is the other strong idea that portrays our club, in fact we think that this philosophy of life is the only one which can give a balanced importance to every aspect of our complex society.
Another foundamental aspect of our organization is that we want to put together persons of different ideologies and different status, just because we think that we can improve ourselves discussing with other people and not avoiding to hear other opinions and ideas. That's why we created our club, and that's why we decided to give some opportunites to each member of it to promote and to support his ideas and his conception of life.
During the last years we succeeded in enroling different artists and so our website has had more than 350,000 impressions. Now we are looking forward to develop our ideas and our initiatives, and that's why we hope to meet new friends! Of course we would like to meet nice people who want to teach and are eager to learn from the whole human experience, in a few words we want to meet people who like freedom and want to fight against vanity and stupidity in order to create a more equal and happy world to live in. So if you are a collaborative spirit, join us and improve your own daimon!
Now we are concluding this short introduction and we hope you are going to visit our creation, also because you will find a lot of interesting things. At the same time we would like you to join us, because we always need to learn from other people, and we always need to meet new friends. Bye, bye and see you soon.
