Social design and the cultural forms we are embedded in

Until we figure out the cultural forms we are embedded in, we will be limited by them. That is the role for the social archaeologist (which exists in all of us), to excavate and bring to light the centuries of structures, processes, systems, memes, etiquettes, and organizational structures that have been unconsciously informing our everyday lives. Brought to light we then find new dimensions of freedom in which to live.

It is into these new dimensions the social architect, the social designer can come in to create new social forms, forms that hold open these new dimensions, so that society will not collapse back into its old state.
