A BILLION PEOPLE ARE SPENDING HOURS A DAY PLAYING GAMES.

WHAT IF THE GAMES HELPED US NAVIGATE OUR PERFECT STORM OF CRISES
AS PLAYERS CO-CREATE A PEACEFUL, INCLUSIVE,
JUST, SUSTAINABLE, THRIVING FUTURE
FOR ALL OF US?

WE CAN DO MORE, MUCH MORE, THAN CREATE A  GAME THAT WHILE TEACHING HOW TO COLLABORATE AND BECOME EPIC CHAMPIONS, IS DESTRUCTIVE  AND WITH NO REAL VALUE CREATION.

BECOME AN EPIC PLAYER AND  
FROM THIS STATE OF HEIGHTENED AWARENESS,
LEAD US TO THE CULTURAL CHANGES REQUIRED FOR HUMANITY TO STEP GRACEFULLY INTO MATURITY.
"

There are more than 1.2 billion people in the world playing games, most of them online,most of those building and conquering imaginary worlds. To do so they work harder than at their paid jobs to master the skills of massive collaboration, detecting and in turn providing feedback, honing the art of decision-making, sharing and negotiating with each other to make collective genius emerge.


"OUR MISSION IS TO EVOKE THE COLLECTIVE GENIUS AND PEAK FLOW STATES OF HUGE NUMBERS OF PEOPLE THROUGH THE CREATION OF A GAME  THAT HELPS US DESIGN, DEVELOP, PLAY AND SCALE A NEW OPERATING SYSTEM FOR HUMANITY. 

We know that humanity as a species has been through various phase shifts as we mature. This is a natural process for all species. First, we had the Agricultural Revolution, then the Industrial Revolution and more recently the Digital Revolution. Today, we stand on the cusp of the next great transformation and the next, more mature OS will be designed from the ground up to tap into collective wisdom and collaboration at scale. This new OS won't come from a government, a group, a company or an individual. It will transcend national borders and will include all living beings. It will be the outcome of harnessing Group Genius.

TAPPING INTO GROUP GENIUS

We will be using a proven methodology, pioneered by Matt and Gail Taylor, called the DesignShop process, to run annual events called Chrysalis. Past DesignShops have operated within the constraints of the current OS. Like the transformation a caterpillar undergoes, Chrysalis will be a safe space for defectors of the existing OS to come together and step outside of familiar ways of solving problems, working to create a new OS. You can find out more about Chrysalis at  About Chrysalis

THE GAME

We will use the output of  Chrysalis to inform the next iteration of the game. You can read more about why we have chosen a game as the best way of getting huge numbers of people involved in proactively creating a new OS.

WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP

This is an effort by the people for the people. It is our turn to step up and create this new operating system. We can do this far, far faster than governments or institutions or politics. This is our responsibility.  First the people then the government has always been the case, but not often recognized or honored. And too often, we the people have made our point with revolutions that kill and further the either-or mentality of the industrial era paradigm. We can do this through playful, well designed, options without war. 

WHAT'S IN IT FOR YOU?

You will be part of something epic, and your contribution is equally valuable to us, regardless of the level that you can invest. Unlike other Patreon creators, we do not have extensive perks at each level. Contributors at every level will receive updates and transparent reporting on how the funds are used. We commit to providing monthly updates and regular Ask Us Anything sessions. Our sincere ask is that you view any contribution you can comfortably commit to as a valuable investment in the next seven generations. There is no out there. Come with us as we the people create a more fit, awesome operating system for humanity.  The future by design, not default has never been so urgent.
