THIS NOVEL FORM OF TIME CAPSULE provides a near-direct sense of what it’s like to be in the presence of these people — it’s far more immersive that any traditional 2-dimensional experience can convey. You see depth all around you – above, below and behind. You hear not only their voice but the wind, the birds and all the other sounds occurring at the time. Capturing experiences in these individual’s personal spaces (kitchens, gardens, living rooms) provides additional context for the truth they’re sharing… it provides a new way to bring humanity closer to itself, with special focus on connecting inter-generationally to younger people.

100 Wisdom Experiences
The first phase of the project is to create immersive experiences with 100 individuals sharing their truth.
looking 10000 years ahead
Our strategic partnership with the Long Now Foundation and the Internet Archive provides project longevity.
Gary Yost’s background in art and technology combines filmmaking with the invention of 3D animation and visualization software. His unique experience spanning decades, provides the project the essential skillset required to bring these encounters to life.
The Long Now Foundation, Ram Dass, Peter Coyote, Gavin de Becker and others fully endorse the project.
Recently virtual reality has become a truly workable medium. Virtual Reality headsets like the Oculus Go, Quest and Rift, HTC Vive and Vive Pro, Google Daydream and Samsung GearVR are now inexpensive and becoming ubiquitous. State of the art 3D/360° immersive cameras are now available for the first time.
We create fully-immersive experiences in which any person can be embodied with these important cultural icons who are sharing personal stories and teachings in their home environments.
