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 and Nature of Solitons:
* Solitons are of peaceful, permanent forms, localized, and interact with other solitons to emerge from the collision of interaction unchanged ~ except for a phase shift.
* Solitons are still, placid, self-aware, 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 solutions of and to a widespread class of weaker systems which result from lack of integrity.
* Life models it's Self from waves of solitonic creation which emanate from source. Truth resides and reflects in the wholeness within all life, moving and still.
