    Certainly, that would be the best solution /if/ we can guarantee that solution X is the best, but to determine what is the best generally requires trial and error, determing which of the alternatives is best.

    Or, in other words: If you’re wrong and you’ve sunk all available resources into that wrong idea then you are finished. If you have several vectors, even if they are less well formed at the time you determine one of them won’t work, then you still have the opportunity to succeed.

    I suppose it’s the age old risk vs reward. Lower risk lower reward, higher risk higher reward, Choose your path. The high risk, all eggs in one basket method works sometimes, but for all those for whom it has worked, many others failed trying the same method.

    Perhaps something as revolutionary and high risk as seasteading needs a high risk start, but from my point of view, I prefer a multi-pronged more organic approach.

    Very good points. I had assumed that we could whittle the three down to which is the best approach based on a careful pre-analysis and a minimal expenditure of resources, and then sink the majority of the remaining resources into the best one. But if you can’t easily choose the best one from an initial analysis then you have to try all three.

    You can do 2 of the 3 options at the same time by designing a seastead for one family that can also be linked to others of the same design to create a larger community.

    … or use some method to keep them from rubbing against each other… Look around, it’s been discussed. Problem is, you want yours, I want mine, Johnny and June want theirs…

    BTW, welcome to the aquarium!

    We all disagree and then some of us agree to disagree which is a disagreement in itself! The post was about Cardgame saying that in his view, talking business with Tokelau would be the best solution for seasteading.

    I fail to see how getting the Tokelau’s involved, has anything to do with seasteading,….and then the conversation gets derailed.

    “The point being…

    1. It isn’t invading when you are invited and it becomes your country just as much as theirs. Think of it in terms of political asylum which Tokelau grants you citizenship.

    2. there are plenty of sea mounts within the Tokelau EEZ so spread out and find a place that doesn’t bother their (our) land. The point is there is an EEZ in which to spread out. there is a naation in which to FLAG vessels. There is a nation to offer protection from laws of the sea.

    3. I understand what the goal is. the problem is no country around the pacific including the US will be particularly interested in promoting the idea. So as utopian as the idea is, the laws of the sea, the UN and other countries are counter productive. If you want to see the dream come alive, establish a base from which to begin, THEN prove that the idea has merit, THEN get the UN and other to change laws, THEN you can have your utopia. Otherswise, you might as well reserve yourself to discussing this topic on internet forums for the foreseable future.”

    Sry bro, to put it mildly, …I dont think so! Political asylum to Tokelau? Wow. A nation,…to offer protection from the “laws of the sea”?? What the hack are your taking about? Get the “UN and other to change the laws”?? You must be kidding,…

    “THEN you can have your utopia”?? Seasteading is not an “Utopia” my friend.

    Seasteading is defined as:

    The process of developing highly self-sufficient autonomous human habitats as permanent floating communities on the world’s oceans.”
