Our Story So Far

The first step to knowing something, is knowing you don’t know
— Matt & Gail Taylor

It feels odd to us that we live in an human organizing system that seems to serve the 1% instead of the 100%. To us, the existing paradigm wastes our human Potential.

It traps us into constant win/lose power plays and either/or decisions. It pits us against our home and each other and everything else in the Universe. Civilization is collapsing because we don’t understand that we must do more than tweak and fix existing systems, systems which cannot be fixed.

So in September 2018 we set foot on a journey to counteract this.

We started as 3 strangers from different parts of the world and serendipity brought us together. We call ourselves GEM for…Gail from Northern California, Elisabet from Hawaii, and Michael from Cape Town, South Africa. Our learning has been tremendous and our network has grown, broadened, and gifted us with their thoughts and ideas. Now we’re a band of 18 — we have a website, a beautiful video, a learning board with past discussions and future steps. We’re alive and we’re creating life.

GEM plus our band of 18. We’re alive and we’re creating life!

We set our sights on an April Chrysalis event bringing 100 people together to design and develop a game that will eventually be played by millions of people electronically. This game will be the seed sprouting a new operating system for humanity.

This is no small task: it will reach into schools, workplaces, communities and events becoming a movement and an ongoing unfolding narrative for a new way of organization serving 100% of humanity while restoring earth, this place we call home.

The sheer scope of this endeavor proposes a couple of challenges and we don’t yet feel we’re ready for the April Chrysalis event as we really want it to be — a profound week of learning, designing and co-creating this mind-bending game. We’re too green.

Yet fear not! We’re 18 strong and more and more people are being attracted to the energy we are creating — each new member adds not only one brain, but connects us to a brand new personal network, full of resources and ideas.
