World Building designates a narrative practice in which the design of a world precedes the telling of a story. World Building is founded on three beliefs, namely that storytelling is the most powerful system for the advancement of human capability due to its ability to allow the human imagination to precede the realization of thought; that all stories emerge logically and intuitively from the worlds that create them; and that new technologies powerfully enable us to sculpt the imagination into existence. 5D Institute is the world's leading World Building collective. Their network of preeminent World Builders transcends borders and boundaries in film, animation, fashion, gaming, theatre, television, music, architecture, science, interactive media and more. Through the newly cemented partnership with USC School of Cinematic Arts, 5D Institute is at the front lines of the new media landscape.

Definition of Soliton:
The Nature of Solitons Solitons are of peaceful permanent form, localized, and interact with other solitons to emerge from the collision unchanged ~ except for a phase shift. Solitons are peaceful, placid, still, self-reinforcing solitary waves of creation eg: a pulse of light. Solitonic creation maintains its shape while it travels at constant speed. Solitons arise as the solutions of a widespread class of weaker systems that result from lack of integrity. Life models it's Self from waves of creation that emanate from source. Truth reflects in the wholeness within all life.
