"Howard Ehrlich described a concept known as the transfer culture [5], an attempt at future worlds right here in amongst the status quo, the old world, an experiment in future made in the present. More specifically, a transfer culture is the manifestation of the ideas, processes, behaviours, skills and activities that are needed to help humans transition from the current social formation to the incoming one. It seems then, that the communes and the richness that they are creating under the streets of your cities, are fulfilling many of these ideas. They are a distributed transfer ecosystem where we can test alternative ways of being."
