...... What we need is an independent neutral base from which we can plan, prepare, conceptualise, chart, sketch and congregate. This will provide an ‘introduction’ period prior to making a commitment and to personally estimate on what and to whom we are committing to. And there is only one kind of base that can provide that. A floating micro-nation in international waters, IOW a ship big enough to accommodate approx. fifty people in comfort and safety. It can feed us, enables tax free purveying and alleviates the red tape of visa permits which could cause a few headaches considering our multinational assemblage.
The ‘perfect case scenario’ in quoting Hakim Bey “involves a free space that extends into free time”. We’ll have the biggest storeroom, chockers with food, the biggest highway to travel on and the biggest moat in the world in case of contingencies, safety, quarantine and escape options.
We can still pursue other avenues from said resorts to little hamlets in co-operation with native villages. -- We can trade with them and establish plantations. Live on land or on board, or even both periodically. But most importantly this is something that can be done without undue delay, without ifs and buts and without venturing into the unknown. What you see is what you get which also bodes for intellectual compatibility. We are as the term suggests an ‘intentional community’ which is foremost based on like-mindedness. My perspective is a functioning synthesis of hi-tech. science, bio-technology, perma-culture, economic autarchy and complete independence, There is just not enough time left for straw-bale and mud-brick village-building (or at least not for yours truly). So, my suggested (jump-start) approach would profoundly reduce the endless process of how, when and where and most polemically who with. -- It’s not every ones cup of tea and that’s precisely my point. Whoever resonates with this proposition would have enough facts on hand to think it through, the rest is agreeing on a destination to touch base and trash it out. Anyone prepared to travel half around the world for that, shows enough dedication to be taken for a founding creator. -- The rest is consolidating funds and we could be up and running by the end of 10. And I don’t mean 10 years which it would take otherwise.

Because our housing is a single housing unit and requires the sharing of bathroom, kitchen and common space membership/residency may be restricted based on sex/gender in accordance with the law. Our community does not discriminate based on race/color, national origin, religion, family status (i.e. having children, not having children, or being pregnant), disability, marital status, sexual orientation, ancestry, source of income, age, creed, personal appearance, political affiliation, HIV infection, military/veteran status, unfavorable military discharge, gender identity or expression, receiving public assistance, or domestic abuse.
