    Hi Ellmer,
    .
    Congratulations for getting beyond phase1.
    I am not there. You are there without me.
    I am planning a different route.
    .
    Best luck to you.

    Dear Ellmer,
    If you want to be the developer, and this is an investor developer talk,
    than I have to inform you, that I am not investing.
    I am playing the game of refusing to play pointless games, and this
    might be the most pointless of all.
    But nice try.

    In my opinion, advertising will bring the money of the reality show.
    So, consumers pay for the advertisement too, by paying a more for the
    product that is advertised.
    .
    Seems like crowdfounding is similiar, just no product,
    and cost less for the individual.
    .
    I am a bit worried about the big bucks. Someone might kill someone.
    .
    My idea would be the project to be founded as it goes. Built in control
    points. When a part of the project is completed, then the next phase could
    be founded. This could be done with crowdfounding too.
    My difficulty with crowdfounding is that the money cannot be returned to
    the founder if the money is not used. This brings the problem, of lets
    go with the project and when it fails the project managers can keep the
    money. A projetc like that is doomed to fail from the start.

    Well, I have a big problem with the cedibility of the project.
    However practical experience shows that there were big bucks paied
    for sand, and the 50milUSD for a reality show thatdid not make it.

    Well, more phylosophy before this gets shut down.
    Some brought up the idea of rules and tribunals, and deportation.
    Instead of deporting someone, I would use the technique of leaving.
    When there are multiple seasteads, and persons are free to choose,
    there might be no need for deportation.
    .
    Instead of deporting someone I do not go to that seastead where that
    person is. This makes it necessary the guarantee to be free to leave.
    .
    I think, that should be the first major rule of a seastead: free to leave.

    I have a little difficulty understanding the rules.
    Some write long text about rules of a seastead that does not exist yet.
    My idea about rules is the less the better.
    For example in Dana Point harbor, ( California USA ) it is specified that the
    boat has to be docked in the slip with bow ahead. I followed the rules.
    In mediterranian countries ( Greece, Italy ) boats are docked transon first.
    ( called mediterranian docking ).
    On a seastead I would not make a rule. Either way, it is OK.
    It is my phylososphy.

    My nice little fable would be about one social rule. On a seastead there would be no
    driving, probably. How can other social rules be simplified or eliminated to make
    life easier?
    .
    It might be just fantasy.
    .
    How many psychotherapists does it take to build a seastead?

    More phylosophy:
    Left hand driving versus right hand driving.
    Left hand driving is natural. Comes from, I guess, ridding a horse wearing a sword.
    A right-handed person wears a sword on his left side, so it can be drawn with
    one move with right hand. So to get on a horse the left leg goes first in the step,
    and the right leg goes above the horse. When the horse faces left at the curb, the rider
    can ride away immediately after getting on. And so, the left hand side riding, voala,
    nice little fable.
    .
    There is more, so the intersections are roundabouts, with a yeald to the right.
    No need signs. With a system like that intersections and roundabouts are intuitive
    to the rule of yeald to anything coming from the right.
    .
    On the continental Europe , and in the US it is right side driving, and riding, with
    the rule of right hand yeald. So if the side changed the yeald of hand should have
    been changed too. In right hand driving there should be left hand yeald to make the
    flow of traffic intuitive. The rules of right hand driving are not intuitive,
    therefore requires signs and rules. In the US there are a lots of intersections, so
    called four-way stop. The four-way stop intersection require stopsings and a lots
    of attention. It also require lots of written rules and learning.
    Street sings in the continental Europe are even more complicated, in my opinion.
    .
    US driving is: right side, stop at stop sign, yeald at yeald sign, stop for red light,
    and pay for any damages.
    .
    With a little story like that I would like to explain that rules can be screw up easily.
    We ride tbe opposit side than the English, yes but we forgot to change what way to yeald,
    and that is causin a bunch of signs.
    .
    A seastead would probably take a careful design and with that wery little rules and very
    few signs would be necessary.

    I am going to write here, since I do not want to deal with the
    real problems in my life.
    It is probably good to decide the intended function of a structure
    before building it. Sovereignty is one intention, or the possible
    maximum sovereignty. Security is important too. These are necessary
    to keep the structure functioning. Floating is also imoprtant.
    There are multiple variables have to be observed at the same time.
    For example: a dropner wave and maximum possible sovereignty.
    International waters and possibly out of eez have max possible sovereignty,
    and the mean while those places also may have dropner waves, and storms.
    .
    It is a similar thing with financing, in my opinion. When the building of
    the structure is done by financing it from shore, there is always going to be
    a strging to pull from shore. A seastead has to perform according acceptaions
    from shore, or else. But what else? Investment without strings is probably
    not an investment at all.
    .
    I am not against investments. That can be one way to build a seastead.
    There might be other ways to build a seastead. I would think about investment
    of human time and effort, not so much of high dollars.
    .
    So far so much. More phylosophy later.

    So, yes, the “founding fathers” of something.
    I would like to say that with all due respect.
    .
    The “new frontier” and the new way of life would
    allow new ways of thinking, or may require it.
    .
    I think, new thoughts are rare. I think in circles and
    in repetitions.

    I am a simple man. That is the secret of my happiness and success.
    God loves simplicity, and He gives great rewards to those who have it.
    So my advice is Be Simple.
