Our basic claim is that - in the age of complexity - human society can be organized on the model of ecosystems.

 
If we are so well connected by the internet, why is our collective impact so low...?
— The paradox that got us started
 

Our Mission

Believing that emotionally bonded individuals are better able to translate collective intelligence into social impact, we aim to provide systematic incentives for online communities to reach and maintain qualitative relationships embedded in trust, emotional resonance and reciprocity.

Building on the theory in our research section, we aim to provide new participatory and governance models with academic partners and pilot communities.


Thus is one heat from many embers felt.
— Dante Alighieri, The Divine Comedy, Paradise, C. XIX

What We'D LIKE TO Achieve

  • Open the discussion on the adaptability of human organizations in an increasingly complex world.

  • Enable online relationships to reflect emotional resonance to better translate collective intelligence into social impact.

  • Develop an adaptive architecture for an online ecosystem of interdependent communities.
