“Your Wisdom Clock is Ticking”
For the first time in history, technology has evolved in a way that can allow us to become more human again. Our species is unique in that humans survive not just by passing on our genes, but also by passing on our wisdom before death. While our genome preserves our species, our wisdom evolves our human heritage. And just like DNA is a unique biological human marker, wisdom is unique to the body that accumulated it.
Until the 21st century, sharing wisdom was a natural process driven by the structure of the primeval village. Now, accelerating population collapse driven by low fertility and high longevity is disrupting this order. By 2030, there will be more people over 60 than under 10 – and as a society we do not have the infrastructure to support this new reality.
As a result, our elders and our youth are disconnected and the flow of wisdom has been disrupted. We have successfully sequenced the human genome – but human wisdom is now dying on the last body that accumulated it.
Our research shows that this phenomenon has kickstarted another clock in our species – what we call our Wisdom Clock™. The clock kicks in during our mid-60’s and urges us to share our story and leave behind our wisdom.
This is where technology comes in.
Built on the belief that wisdom is the most valuable and perishable human resource, INNRwisdom is on a mission to find it, gather it, and make it accessible to future generations with the help of AI. We aim to turn the aging crisis into an opportunity for humanity by making human wisdom a value system unique to our elders and our heritage an operating system for the future.
