Earth Observatory and Gaming Complex
That's exactly what it is--an observatory! The only difference is that rather than looking outward toward the stars, we are looking inward at Spaceship Earth from a place (in space) outward from the earth.
It's as if we turned the Hubble Space Telescope towards the earth--and instead of observing a planet rotating at 1,000 miles per hour, we are able to see the entirety of earth at a single moment (ala the Dymaxion Earth Display Map as shown below).
Where one can go and view and study conditions aboard the planet.The huge computing and display capabilities of the observatory will enable us to see where all the people and resources are, where the crops are today, where they were last year. Project conditions for next year. Where are the wind and hydropower resources--view migration patterns--watch planetary deforestation unfold before your eyes. Posit "what ifs". What an extraordinary resource it will be!
A global, planetary, earthian observatory of earth itself.
Quite apart from its integral value to global gaming--it stands alone as a needed, unique and vital resource for the planet.

The artist's rendering of the Earth Observatory and Global Gaming CompleX depicted above is Tetworld's interpretation or version of Buckminster Fuller's original concept for a global game--"To Make The World Work For Everyone".
This observatory and gaming complex will serve as the prototype for a series of Tetworld observatories and gaming complexes to be placed regionally, around the world--each linked to the others.
These complexes will serve to support ongoing gaming "at a distance" via the internet and "in situ", teams "in residence"at the complexes.
They will also serve as Tetworld research and development locations.
We are seeking support and funding for the Earth Observatory and Gaming Center Complex--which will be housed in a domed structure (as illustrated on this page)--and the huge Dymaxion Maps will be tied into computers that will be able to generate and display a great variety and quantity of data about the earth, universe, environment, planetary life, resources, trends, etc., necessary and requisite to the game and to be used by teams and players to develop strategies leading to our goal of a "World That Works For Everyone"..
