MIMIC THIS! When you get invited to events 3000 miles away (or 20 of them just across town), use COPY & PASTE with the really interesting events to seed your own community's plans for similar events. Why start from scratch.... Beg, borrow and mimic! More....
At the start of the game the virtual space is filled with nodes that we call producer/consumers. Each node is connected to other nodes based on what it produces and what it needs to consume to survive and prosper. If we zoom out, we see that the nodes are clustered into businesses, religious groups, nations, and other groupings that affect which connections are available to them. See Information, Knowledge, Wisdom, and Vision
If we zoom in we see that the nodes are not just human, they are people, plants and creatures of all kinds, all producing different things and all needing different things. If we zoom in on any connection, we see it as a double conveyor belt with one type of value moving away from the node and another type of value moving toward the node. As a player, you are a human node and your goal is to make as many connections as possible. You make offers of connection to other nodes and they either accept or reject based on the net effect of your offer on their set of connections.
There is flowing across the various connections the food, clothing, shelter, education and health care that you need to prosper in the game and there is also flowing across those connections potential harm in the form of connections that drain resources like fraud, disease, hatred, and violence. The player tries to align themselves in the flows to maximize the opportunity for new connections with positive flows and minimize the likelihood that they encounter negative flows.
As a player, you can accumulate currency, assets, the right to share in the production of a group, information, knowledge, and wisdom. You can increase the value of your time by increasing productivity. You can also cause a drain of resources for others which will impact the willingness of others to accept your offers of a connection. When you zoom in on your own node we will have a graphic representation of the world you have created. You can choose to make that a sterile place – or make your home a garden with lots of connections to plants and creatures.
As a player you can choose to play as an individual or as a family or as an extended family and the interesting one to me would be to play as a community – all the people living in a locality – and experiment with the types of connections we could make – realizing more and more of the human and biological potential resident in our locality.
