Is a platform for redesigning new systems and models based upon a fundamental principle coined by Buckminster Fuller almost 50 years ago, which states that:
“You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something build a new model that makes the old model obsolete.”
The goal of PRSYM: is to create a virtual space where large difficult world problems can be separated into tangible, actionable models that can be independently evolved.
This is a call for action. To first dispel the myths of a dystopian future which have been thrust upon us by profiteering.
It is time to leverage our outrage, our hurt, frustrations, resentments, and fears as the true motivators they are and put them to work for us, rather than against us.
It is time to unite by working together to ‘divide and evolve’ the real problems, the ones that matter, and empower ourselves rather than ask permission or wait to be ordained or empowered by others. We have everything we need already, if we work together.
PRSYM is about designing a new way of living that isn’t constrained or limited by our past.
It is about imaging and believing in a future utopian experience for all human kind.
It attempts to answer the simple question, ‘how should we truly live?’
