Social mutation can be understood as a natural phenomenon of our society, with positive, negative or indifferent attitude of the public. Attitude which in reality is not as important as the fact that social mutation simply exists.

Concept of social mutation is quite wide and general theme fit for a separate study. However, it is very wide and convenient means for freely finding individual position. Infinite qualifications may be given to the quite abstract and not necessarily consistent understanding of so called social mutation. This can be done by diversifying the very concept of the “Alternative” project and making it more interesting.
