A new year of experiments begins June 1st
What makes a hero? How adaptable is man? Without that, what remains? Where did we go wrong? What don’t we know?
The root of humanity’s current crisis is an ill-fitting and over-reaching government which does not meet the needs of its people. We posit that by examining exceptional examples of humanity from a variety of worlds that we can identify the nature of mankind through its aspirations and responses to environmental stressors.
Through these observations, the Wittgenstein Institute will determine the best methods of governing which will then be recommended to the International Armed Services Alliance for the Colonization of Novel Planets.
In order to examine the fundamental nature of man, heroism, and survival, we at the Wittgenstein Institute will subject heroic individuals (“specimens”) to a variety of alternate world simulations, problem-solving tests, and psychological examinations. Individual Wittgenstein researchers shall divide care of specimens into separate communal housing which reinforces central goals of their respective philosophies.

is a panfandom, immersive world RPG where extraterrestrial researchers have abducted fictional characters to partake in a series of experiments in a rotating world environment with the intent of studying human nature and stress response based loosely on theories of major philosophers. Play is predominantly social, though overarching plot and intermittent focused plot is also planned.
