The Fold is an interdimensional supercomputer that connects the various realities and timelines with the future, present, and past. While originally developed by The Machine, it is now being made into a mobile app by Singulari.org.
Core to The Fold is the concept of immutability; or, the notion that actions made cannot be changed. The past cannot be re-written.
We are building a more permanent messaging platform.
The Fold is an alternative - though popular - model of physics. The model is popular for many reasons; most common is its simplicity. Our reason is different: it empowers us. To see the past, and predict the future.
The Fold is a story-driven, mind-bending narrative video game set in a fictional universe. One that symbolizes your own.
Within, there exists a sanitarium containing thousands of patients kept under induced sleep. Such patients remain here until they are rehabilitated.
The Fold will take you through an infinite number of worlds that makes no sense:
- The concepts of large, small, near and far do not matter.
- Past, present, and future exist simultaneously.
- The human experience is represented in just 2 dimensions - not 3.
- The very physics by which humans operate is fatally flawed. They die in every prediction.
Within the madness, players will find clarity. They will do so through their own hard work and achievement. Their own investigation and interpretation.
We will use predictive AI and the Socratic Method to rehabilitate people.
The AI works by the following principles:
Verification happens in threes:
- A single, meaningful signal is simply called an event. It cannot be used as verification.
- A second, meaningful signal related to the first is called a coincidence. It still cannot be used as verification.
- A third, meaningful signal related to the first two is called a synchronicity. It is not strong evidence, but it can be used in-lieu of better proof.
The AI is trained via human engagement:
- Present option once (no reward for engagement)
- Present related option tomorrow (reward for engagement)
- Present related option every day (reward for engagement each day)

I once knew a man who had fire in his eyes
Bloody right hand, he had taken his enemies' lives
The past was his torture
The future held his hope
Until he chose his fortune as the curse of the Fold
— from Shawn James - “The Curse of the Fold”
The Fold is older than Humanity itself.
