Casey Phyles are organized around one simple idea:

When we get together and do the things that matter to us, we’re at our best. And that’s what Casey Phyles does. It brings people together to do, explore, teach and learn the things that they’re passionate about. All in pursuit of moving their lives forward.

“A phyle is a group of people that’s self-defined by whatever values they share. A phyle is not limited by race or language or geography – or, most importantly, by borders on maps or other such fictions – although it could be, if its members chose to be so limited. The word phyle was coined by science fiction author Neal Stephenson in his masterwork, The Diamond Age. It comes from the Greek, φυλή which means ‘tribe’ or ‘clan’… But it would be at least as apt if they were called philes, stemming from the Greek word philia, which means “love”– the same root in the word “philosophy”. The basic idea is that man is a social animal, and we tend to prefer to run with others who are like us – or who love what we love. Birds of a feather flock together, in either case.”- Doug Casey
