HoloWorld is a hypothetical society that is scalable to any size, from a size of one family to the size of a whole planet.
It is a society built on certain principles. Principles that both support pervasive freedom of choice and mechanisms for civilized, synergetic, ecological interaction and cooperation.
HoloWorld aims to be a society that works for everybody.
HoloWorld is a developing model of a complex system with many interacting components. The principles at work within some of the different components of a society are described below. Notice that this is very much a work in progress, and parts will be adjusted along the way, and new pieces will be added.
An old rigid civilization is reluctantly dying. Something new, open, free and exciting is waking up.
