As a collection of Heartware and Thoughtware, the Heart Community Possibility Village Model itself serves as its own game theory, or HeartCraft, based on a Convex cooperative game model.
HeartCraft is a multiplayer online game whose players build a Gaian Gameworld using a regenerative model built on ancient wisdom with modern tools. As players build their Gaian Gameworld in HeartCraft, everything from geography, timelines, culture, characters, rules, procedures, levels, incentives, bargaining, planning, budgets, agreements, governance, design, ethos, purpose, context, and more are encoded into a real-world Heart Community Possibility Village.
HeartCraft is a strategic game in which stakeholders try to realize their common objectives by means of the options available, sometimes creating new options along the way.
A Gaian Gameworld created with HeartCraft represents a real-world Heart Community Possibility Village and acts in the virtual world to embody itself for interaction with its own or outside players. As the game is played and a Gaian Gameworld is created, the players become the stewards and participants in a real world Heart Community Possibility Village.
What is our purpose? Our context? Where will we live? How will we acquire and sustain land stewardship? How will we operate? Water, sewage, garbage…? How many villagers can the village support? What is required to sustain and regenerate and when? What seeds do we need to grow which crops? What equipment will need or have to operate? What models and programs do we offer and participate in as a village? How do we contribute to neighboring communities and other Heart Community Possibility Villages? Ethos? Budgets? And so on.
All of these types of questions get answered by playing HeartCraft and creating your own Gaian Gameworld. Each Gaian Gameworld comes ready to create with these and many more questions answered, ready to be agreed to or changed by simply playing the game. All of this gets encoded into the cultural DNA of the players and subsequently into the Heart Community Possibility Village itself.
Behind the scenes, HeartCraft uses heart-centered plumbing to make it all work - along with governance templates, village templates, contract/agreement templates, distributed and secure ledger, material acquisition / supply chain templates, social networking, village technology, training, wallets, village and player NFTs, and more. Each Gaian Gameworld comes preloaded with:
- Bill of Wrongs
- Bright Principles
- Economy of Exchange
- Resource templates
- Rules of Engagement
- Values System
- Village Model
- Operating Model
- CoGovernance Model
- Player / Villager Initiations
- And more
As players in HeartCraft create their Gaian Gameworld, all of these and more are encoded and distributed to the players for collective stewardship.
The final mission in HeartCraft is a real-world, on the ground completion. With built-in rites of passage that were cocreated while playing together, the players come together on the land and village they now collectively steward as a Heart Community Possibility Village.
