VoV tokens are like characters representing human values. They are 3d models you can freely convert into “twodees” (2-dimensional images) or “Threedees” (sculpture or volumetric installation). Giving a shape to human abstraction is like inventing a new writing, a new language resulting from the chain of brain workers contributing one after another to refine the “character” representing each value. We’ll need the 21st-century Champollion to decipher this Rosetta stone.
