    Inheritance
    Project: Polytopia

    All living things carry an inheritance that governs their behavior. We possess an adaptive patchwork of genetic programming that affects how we experience and interact with the world. In addition to our genetic inheritance, we rely on another inheritance – the fabric of life experience and acquired systems that guides us through our lives.

    Culture, relationships, education, language and institutions are passed down through generations, forming the world we live in today. This inheritance is rich, but it also limits our potential by leading us to believe that this is the way life and civilizations must be. The world has changed, but out genetic programming and any of our cultural systems have not. In some ways we have adapted to interact with a world we no longer inhabit. In this complex world, we know less than we think we know, and more importanlty, much less than we could know.

    On an individual level inheritance also takes the form of a roll of imbalanced dice. A few of us receive a rich inheritance. Most of us are handed an inheritance with limited choices. Some of us find ourselves in survival mode from birth.

    The momentum of our genetics and inherited social and economic systems push us to continue living as we always have. We call these combined forces SLANT.

    Y Worlds aims to step out from the momentum of inheritance, to pull against SLANT’s push. By revolutionizing how we cooperatively organize knowledge across systems, humankind can do a better job surviving, protecting and making our way through the world without illusions.
