Too many people experience feelings of despair and carry the disheartening conviction that humanity will soon die out as a result of greed and self-destructiveness.
Can you imagine a different world?
Empaticus and partners are creating a virtual universe where pro-social behaviour like kindness and compassion actually pays off. A parallell universe – for solving real world problems on a global scale.
A state of the art 3D virtual universe accessible from most devices – harnessing the power of sensor technology – with a gameplay that reward altruistic behaviour.
What is the Human Flourishing Universe?
- It is a virtual reality universe that consist of multiple planets with different purposes, all run by people who care.
- The overall goal of the HFU is developing a global team-spirit and building hope, community and resilience
- Planets offer learning of value In RealLife and solutions to societal problems:
– better health&wellbeing, employability and entrepreneurial
skills, social & emotional learning and attention skills, environment protection and resource efficiency, political solutions …
- An extended-reality for access to societal services and institutions: unemployment offices, health-care, education and information.
- Be an AVAPRENEUR! and use the platform for doing business, offer your services to users, organisations and companies, showcase your work, build teams for your projects.
- A place for CSR – to save resources and money by climate-smart and efficient ways of interacting within their organisations, managing recruitment, coordinating CSR initiatives with other companies and organisations as well as interacting with the general public.
- A space where you meet people, organisations, institutions and businesses from all over the planet that are just as concerned as you are about the pressing problems and injustices in our world.
- A place for global efforts – to change worlds. A permanent virtual infrastructure dedicated to innovation, collaboration, experimentation and coordination of efforts towards improving the condition of people’s lives, society and our environment.
How can this be accomplished?
The HFU is a purpose driven universe where kindness and compassion is the no.1 currency and altruism the reigning ideal. By utilizing underlying game-mechanics we set the rules for interaction and advancement – in order to stimulate individual development and global team-spirit that can manifest In Real Life. The game-mechanics is developed together with world-class creative thinkers and experts on human behaviour: social scientists, psychologists, UX-specialists and experts on altruism and compassion along with representatives of many other scientific disciplines.
What is different from real life?
In HFU we offer as near human interaction as possible on truly equal terms – beyond prejudice towards color of skin, religion and impossible standards of beauty. Focusing on what really matters, beyond twisted notions of status, beyond exclusion caused by mental and physical disabilities and above all – beyond class boundaries.
Is it expensive?
The HFU is Free to use! and accessible from most devices and from anywhere in the world where you can connect to the internet.
This video shows the possibilities,
one of many existing environments, here with space as theme.
The Social media avalanche in the last decade demonstrates people’s desire and need to bond with each other. Today Virtual Reality is about to break through on a broad front. For young people it is already real, 1.6 billion existing user accounts in virtual worlds speak for themselves.
In this project, we leverage the platform that Virtual Reality pioneers MindArk has developed and successfully managed the past 13years (80 million USD invested). With a copy of their world-class systems and copies of all of the amazing environments that already exist, we develop alternate game mechanics: where we remove the shooting and killing and create planets and scenarios that brings out the best in us. This is a video from the Entropia Universe platform.
Empaticus Ltd. is developing this hope-filled antidote to human self-destructiveness together with a world-class team of creative thinkers and experts on Human Behaviour.
A parallel reality for utility-based activities and community services where you can go to
the Employment Service, participate in University education as well as taking a wide range of independently organised courses. You will be able to participate in support groups and even see a doctor. A parallel reality in short, where users can develop and certify their employability and entrepreneurship skills and cooperate in every way.
Virtual Reality is already used in an increasing number of areas of society. This project brings together the existing and future developments into a coherent platform for Human Flourishing.
We are currently putting together a group of internationally renowned actors
as ambassadors along with the team of advisors from the social and emotional field for the development of the new gameplay mechanics. This group together with Mindark’s technology and experience in successfully running a VR economy (Entropia) and Empaticus Ltd.’s Human Flourishing concept is the basis for attraction of additional strategic partners. Please send your recommendations through the contact form.
The solutions will cover all platforms, including browsers, smartphones, tablets and PC, with different levels of access from different types of devices.
You are welcome to be a part of this, in fact, everyone is.

The key ethos of the Planets is reward for altruistic behavior through avatar advancement, receiving benefits and enhancing status. Empathy and compassionate acts towards others give status and benefits in the HFU. For example, developing a social enterprise, on Planet Social Pearl offers rewards that could be used on Planet Enterprise and Planet Skills Development for other human well-being activities and/or personal development.
In HFU a mix of scientifically proven techniques (mindfulness, compassion training, relaxation techniques) and gamification is used to activate the trust mechanism of the brain and lead to a willingness to develop and collaborate on projects with a deeper meaning, and projects focused on solving problems In the Real World. For example, building a database of NEETs in your community could result in benefits for your avatar that can be exchanged for health products and/or other health related activities – gym memberships, lifestyle support, business start-up, etc. By means of the infrastructure for cooperation between individuals, business and organisations.
HFU is firmly located in the new digital paradigm:
