Lightpaper [Draft] - 2021.06.01

What now?

“What now?” — A simple question with limitless possibilities. Our civilization’s previous responses created our present moment, and from here, our answers will fundamentally impact all life on The Planet and anywhere else we explore. With that in mind, another question becomes infinitely more important:
Who’s responsible for answering "What now?” on behalf of The Planet?
Currently, Humans give centralized institutions the power to define The Planet’s path, but if we remember that every human is an extension of The Planet, it becomes clear that everyone’s perspective deserves to carry a lot more weight. It’s time for Humans to take editorial control over our shared narrative.
The polymathProcess exists so humans can form decentralized responses to The Planet’s most meaningful questions. The polymathProcess is for you if you’re interested in:
sharing meaningful content that supports The Planet’s evolution
getting paid for the value your content creates for others
protecting your intellectual property (IP)

What is the polymathProcess?

The polymathProcess is a societal protocol for creating subcultures that promote autodidactism, biomimicry, and ego development so every person is free to:
explore and express their curiosity
break down outdated institutional norms
support the growth of a more sovereign society

With the polymathProcess, the subculture you create will be defined by LongPlays (LPs) and EpicPlaylists (EPs):
Your LongPlay (LP) represents the vinyl substrate for the music inspired story you and your community are creating together. Your LP defines the quality of all the content your subculture will share.
EpicPlaylists (EPs) symbolize how the content you create is etched into the vinyl substrate of your LP. EPs combine epic poetry and music playlists to present your content as a series of engaging stories that help people reimagine how they can relate to themselves and society.

LongPlay (LP) - Set the tone for your subculture

LongPlays (”LPs”) are music inspired brand stories for you to explore your interests, express your values, and develop creative projects that transform your reality.
You can define the reality you’re working towards by creating a LongPlay (LP). Below is the set structure of every LP. Within this framework, you’re free to use your imagination to turn your story into whatever you’d like.
To help frame your perspective, every LP has these same characters. The concepts are set in stone, but how you name and represent them in your story is completely up to you.
Protagonist - The Planet
Antagonist - Humanity’s collective ego
Muse - You/Your brand

These questions are intentionally vague so you can have a blank canvas to define your goals. This is great, but we also understand that getting started can be tough. Email trainfarb@gmail.com if you want help brainstorming!

EpicPlaylist (EP) - Organize your content

After getting an LP# for your brand story, it’ll be time to create your first EpicPlaylist (EP)! The questions you answered to get your LP# will help define how the content you create is organized in your EP.
This is just the first draft, so sorry if it’s confusing. As we work with you, you’ll become a co-author to this document, so we look forward to you helping that make more sense in the future.
Below is the structure that allows you to add content to your EPs on an ongoing basis. You’re free to focus on one or all of the sections based on what you’re most passionate about.

ourLongPlay - How it’s organized

Every person is free to create a LongPlay (LP) that’s completely unique to them. As more and more people share their story, the collection will slowly start to clarify what we should be doing for The Planet.
Similar to how EpicPlaylists (EPs) are the episodes/chapters to your LP, each LP is part of the broader series that makes up ourLongPlay.
Within the community of LPs, we’ll be able to tap into one another’s talents to get help in the following areas:
Support with creating a coda page to organize your LP
Design/Branding for your social media content strategy to clarify your vision
Website Design to share your story
NFT Marketplace Design/Development to protect your intellectual property (IP)
Graphic novels/video game design to turn your story into a beautiful mythology

This is meant to be fun.
