A practical goal of this project would be to produce “knowledge caches” which could be helpful in restarting civilization should the need arise. Brin also considers inclusion of cultural elements, which would be an interesting touch; as noted in the work of Jean Gebser and Ken Wilber, among others, technology and culture tend to co-evolve – e.g. we find much different institutions and forms of governance in tribal “stone age” societies than we would in industrial societies or our increasingly interconnected information age. For more on Brin's proposed TV series see REBUILDING EVERYTHING! A proposed reality show.
