How The Eternal Planet can help

The Eternal Planet is based on four key pillars. It’s a place to: Dedicate, Discover, Remember, and Share.

We believe that each of these activities can help us cope with the passing of a loved one and provide support when it is needed.

By dedicating something in The Eternal Planet, it helps us honor our loved ones.

By discovering Dedications to other people, we realize that we’re not alone in difficult times…other people have been through a similar experience…and we can take solace in that fact.

By uploading videos, pictures, and telling stories about our loved ones, we remember and reconnect with them so that they live on in our hearts.

And finally, we believe that we can all benefit from social healing by sharing and appreciating the lives of those we’ve lost together with our friends, family…or the world.

How do I honor my loved ones with Dedications?

Dedications are the  heart  of The Eternal Planet. They are  timeless  anchors in the digital world that serve as symbols of our loved ones and as links to our fondest  memories. 

Almost everything in The Eternal Planet, its: trees, flowers, wildlife, sculptures and even custom items, are available for dedication.

Three

Create a short biography and upload some treasured Memories to link to your Dedication. Then, share it with friends, family, or the world.  The Eternal Planet can be as public or as private as you want it to be.

Can I create a Dedication for myself?

Absolutely! Many people have asked about creating their own legacy within The Eternal Planet and we fully support that. You can dedicate something to yourself just as you would for any other person.

In fact, we have plans to provide a guided experience, something we call a legacy builder, to help you capture and share the most meaningful parts of your legacy as well.

Below are just a few examples of the Dedications that we created for the prototype so far. By supporting our Kickstarter campaign, you will help us complete development and commission more talented artists to create additional Dedications based on your feedback.

The Founders’ Garden: A Kickstarter Exclusive

We wanted to do something very special for our early supporters, so we’ve built a fantastic (exclusive) area of The Eternal Planet that we are calling The Founders’ Garden.

A beautiful and peaceful collection of islands and land masses, The Founders’ Garden is filled with one of a kind breathtaking vistas and thousands of nooks and crannies in dense forests, luscious fields, winding shorelines, and manicured parks that will only be open for Dedication creation to supporters of this campaign and their friends and family.

To commemorate our launch, your name, and the name of your loved one(s) for whom you have purchased a Dedication will be etched into a glass and metal wall central to the Founders’ Garden for all to see for eternity.

What would you dedicate?

Tell us about the kind of Dedications you would create in The Eternal Planet and we’ll enter you into a drawing for a chance to win an upgraded Dedication when you support us on Kickstarter.

We know this can be personal and will keep your response private.

Unfortunately, sooner or later

we all experience the passing of a loved one. It’s a natural part of life.

We created The Eternal Planet to help us channel our emotions during this difficult time in our lives into honoring and remembering our loved ones in a new, and yet familiar, way that complements our modern, digital life.

Remember

your most precious memories by uploading photos, videos, and stories linked to Dedications

“To live in the hearts we leave behind is not to die” -Thomas Campbell

It is said that our loved ones live on forever in our hearts. But, it is our memories that keep our connection to them strong.

We refer to pictures, videos, and stories within The Eternal Planet as “Memories” because they act as conduits to reinforce the memory of our most precious moments.

We created The Eternal Planet to provide a unique online environment to hold and recall these cherished Memories. 

Dedications throughout The Eternal Planet serve as gateways to Memories and will allow you to view them from within its peaceful virtual world.

Visit The Eternal Planet as often as you wish, but have peace of mind knowing that your Memories will always be there. Just like Dedications, we intend to hold Memories within The Eternal Planet forever. 

Visiting a cemetery can be difficult

Visiting the cemetery can be a beautiful and solemn ritual but, for many of us,  it can also be difficult, if not impossible. We move away from our childhood homes, develop mental blocks about visiting that type of place, or simply get too old or sick to make the trip.

Our loved ones live on in our hearts and in the world around us…

In a poem about death, Mary Elizabeth Fry wrote “Do not stand at my grave and weep. I am not there.” Our loved ones live on our hearts and in the world around us, not a grave site or in an urn. The Eternal Planet is meant to remind us of that. It is there for us anytime and anywhere we want to honor and remember them.

How do I visit The Eternal Planet

The Eternal Planet will be accessible on many devices thanks to new technologies like pixel streaming which make experiencing rich and immersive apps like The Eternal Planet as easy as opening a link in your browser.

The Eternal Planet can also be VR-ready, but virtual reality headsets require additional user menus, optimized textures, and interactions to make the experience truly special so we have made this a stretch goal on our Kickstarter campaign.

"The Eternal Planet can be as public or as private as you want it to be"

In The Eternal Planet you’re not alone.

That is, unless you want to be.

Choose what and who

The Dedications and Memories you create can be shared with your friends, family, or the entire world depending on your preference. 

Choose how

Share Memories and Dedications using your favorite applications like facebook, twitter, snapchat, whatsapp, email, or in person on the TV.

Choose when

There may also be Memories that you want to share, but it never seems like the right time. Memories can be kept secret until they are unlocked at a specified time in the future. 

Share your experience with others to connect with our community and also with past, present, and future generations in a way that has never been available before.

Despite being a virtual world, the shared elements of The Eternal Planet are what make it very real in the hearts and minds of the people that choose to participate. Regardless of whether you choose to share your Dedications and Memories or not, we all share the human experience of losing a loved one, and it is our hope that The Eternal Planet will help us all cope with that experience just a bit more easily.

of people want an alternative to facebook to memorialize their loved ones

When my grandmother passed away, I was struck by a sadness I didn’t know I could feel. I learned that dealing with the loss of a loved one is, without question, the hardest part of life. As we mourned and made funeral arrangements that were essentially unchanged from those my grandmother must have made for her parents, I told my friend and co-founder, Geoff, that I wanted to do something more, something modern, and something meaningful.

He envisioned a beautiful and timeless world, teeming with life yet undisturbed by humanity. A shared world where we are symbolically surrounded by the ones we love forever.

And so, Geoff and I began to develop a new experience that will connect friends and family across space and time in a celebration of life. Please help us make The Eternal Planet the place to honor and remember our loved ones online together.

Thank you,

Anatoly & Geoff
