A radical pre-Technocalypse group that used 'sophont-activation' viruses to 'emancipate' various processing capabilities throughout Terragen space. These viruses were quite complex, and are based on published and/or stolen code snippets regarding turingrade AI breakthroughs. As they were so complex, it often took a significant amount of time to introduce them to the target machine, and only in 'surprise' situations were they ever successful. The most public FreeMind success was 'emancipating' a reaction control computer implanted in a test subject. Many people point to the FreeMind movement as a predecessor to the Cyberian hackers and other extremist technophilic clades.
