The “seasteading channel” was very active few years ago. 99% of the things that you guys are talking about now, we talked about them and we draw certain conclusions. At some point, there wasn’t to much to talk about but to do something.
In spite of that, there was no result in terms of getting few people to invest in building a small seastead. So, why would it be any different now?? And if so, why bother waste time to talk more about it??
Some of us have decided to talk less and do more in private.
Sparky came in and within seconds was asking people to talk to him. He then went on to say you can breathe the air that’s in water (there’s far more CO2 in water than in the atmosphere), and the CO2 concentration in a scuba air supply doesn’t matter. He stated CO2 prompts breathing, but he cannot find the corresponding datapoint that increased CO2 levels causes acidosis, which is what 1) stimulates breathing and 2) can kill you. He cannot think far enough to consider CO2 causes breathing so the body can get rid of the CO2, and if it cannot get rid of CO2, the body dies.
In concentrations up to 1% (10,000 ppm), it will make some people feel drowsy. Concentrations of 7% to 10% may cause suffocation, manifesting as dizziness, headache, visual and hearing dysfunction, and unconsciousness within a few minutes to an hour.
He also said what’s more important is the sealed enclosed batteries powering a scuba rebreather are dangerous to the fish swimming alongside. He has appeared and stated “facts” like this before. It’s very frustrating.
To Kat. I have finished putting the last touches on an ocean colonization micronation website based on a mobile artificial floating island and I will be publishing it some time in August.
I will keep everybody posted.
