To find any kind of success the Arca Oceanus Project must solve dozens and dozens of conundrums, many of which have baffled humanity for years. Tall order, isn’t it?
The thing is, we’re of the opinion that most of the world’s issues already have a solution, but those solutions haven’t been cohesively formed or properly applied yet. Seasteading is our approach to doing just this. Likewise, the problems of seasteading have already been solved; thanks to the internet, the information is out there just waiting to be found…we simply need to assemble the individual parts of the answer into a cohesive tool, and then direct that tool to “fixing” the problem at hand.
But how do you know which parts to form together, and which tool to apply to which problem?
The short answer is “qualified research and brilliant decision-making”. Surprisingly, the most important words in that answer are not “research” and “decision-making”, but rather “qualified” and “brilliant”.
We need really smart people with experience in specific disciplines who can assess the available data and then decide which best applies to our needs.
That’s a little simpler, right?
Oh, and they have to want to live on the ocean, in spartan-like conditions (at first), in an experimental society with few rules and no safety net…and do it all without pay.
If you think you might be one of those amazing souls who find this possibility both fascinating and enticing, the next question is “What can you bring to the project besides enthusiasm (and suicidal tendencies)?”
These are the skills and disciplines we are most in need of, divided into three categories — now, RIGHT now, and YESTERDAY!!!
Just kidding. The truth is we needed ALL of these skills yesterday! But we’ll take them whenever we can get them.
