What is the Auravana Project?
Project Auravana is currently developing the most advanced standard currently known on how to conceive of and operate community at the planetary societal scale. Learn the fundamentals of a society that operates without money, States, or socio-economic class division; and therefrom, contribute to its emergence on our planet.
The Auravana project is composed of working groups and habitat teams. The open source working groups develop and publish the societal standard for a global community-type society. These working groups create documents that provide requirements, specifications, and reasoning that can be used consistently at the societal level for mutual human fulfillment. The project exists to open source and free-share the standard for global societal co-operation.
We are developing the societal standard for a highly automated, moneyless (tradeless) society oriented toward human fulfillment and ecological sustainability.
In order to bring real and measurable fulfillment to a global population, the Auravana Project exists to co-create the emergence of a community-type society through the openly shared development and operation of a unified societal information standard, from which is expressed a network of integrated city systems, in which purposefully driven individuals are fulfilled in their development toward a higher potential life experience for themselves and all others. Significant project deliverables include a societal standard and a highly automated network of habitat service operations.
Rather than assuming only iterative changes within the context of the social and economic systems that are themselves at the root of so many of our challenges, a requirement of this project is to analyze and redesign human society, starting with the definition of what constitutes a fulfilled individual. Instead of trying to patchwork and reform existing systems, this system resolves the many current and impending, self-induced challenges, through a design that renders those challenges obsolete. The Auravana standard for community addresses all the major areas that influence human behavior and ecological stability, tracing root issues back to driving structures, and from there to the environmental influences and response mechanisms that cause them. The standards then propose new structures for those environmental influences that instead condition and predispose fulfillment-oriented values and life-enhancing systems. The project envisions a society oriented toward ecological sustainability and the fulfillment of all individual human need — a society designed and operated through mutually beneficial social cooperation. The standard proposes a system that works for everyone, and the Earth, upon which everyone depends. The fulfillment of all sentient beings is an eternally useful way forward. The Auravana Societal Specification Standard is the integration and shared evolution of a community-type society. Here, the work of contribution brings individuals joy, and society, it brings a platform of stable fulfillment. In life, sharing opens new possibilities for inspiration and creation. How humanity thinks and work together, and what it does, will ultimately make the difference. The optimization of living conditions for everyone on this planet is a direction commensurate to humankind’s real potential.
WHAT DO WE NEED TO CREATE COMMUNITY?
We power our lives knowing that fulfillment is possible.
Start with our aligned interests.
Form and resolve a common information space.
Act upon that resolution to change our environment.
Live a life of ever greater fulfillment.
THE PROBLEM, THE OPPORTUNITY, THE SOLUTION
We power our lives knowing that fulfillment is possible.
The socio-economic structuring of modern society generates a large group of people that live over an extensive area, compete against one another for the common resources, experience inequality and wealth disparity between social classes and/or genders, cannot operate through a unified decision process due to dissimilar understandings and goals (instead, decision making is by authority, majority, or minority rule), and actions that are taken often benefit a small segment of the people at the expense of others and the ecology.
Together, we have the opportunity to apply our intelligence, understandings, and abilities to iteratively co-create a community network of socio-economically integrated city systems designed to incorporate elements from (and otherwise reflect) the natural environment of our species, while offering every individual on the planet a set of highly enriched living opportunities based on that which is possible today, and directed toward a new era of flourishing and sustainability for all.
A unified and emergently designed socio-economic specification that structures the formation of community where people with a shared sense of purpose live within the regenerative carrying capacity of their environment, cooperate with one another using common resources, experience an enriched life where there are a multitude of opportunities for self-growth and contribution, operate through a unified decision process due to similar understandings and goals, and actions that are taken often benefit everyone and do not come at the expense of anyone or the ecology.
HOW WOULD NATURE DESIGN SOCIETY?
A reflection of the nature environment of our species.
Exploring the potential of human knowledge and capabilities for evolving the socio-economic living system and the built environments of the now.
Applying new and emerging philosophy, science, and engineering technology to a unified model (a design specification) for human flourishing and fulfillment.
Constructing an experimental community network of integrated city systems at the convergence of ecological stability, human fulfillment, and technical possibility
POWER YOUR LIFE KNOWING THAT A GREATER EXPERIENCE OF HUMAN FULFILLMENT AND ECOLOGICAL WELL-BEING IS POSSIBLE.
I am new, the next step is:
Gain a fundamental understanding of the concept of operation of a community-type society, where there is no money, no State, and no socio-economic class division.
Read the System Overview and you will be one of the first to discover the operation of community at the planetary scale.
I am already familiar, the next step is:
Contribute to help develop a more comprehensive and unified standard for the conception and operation of community.
Align important organizations with community by adopting the standard for its global scale conception and operation, so that we develop configurations of organizations that easily integrate and share development toward our common human fulfillment.
