Cybernation 101



Just like the Nation is composed of many States,

some of them small, some of them large,

Cybernations are composed of many Cyberstates

An earthfamily could be a Cyberstate on its own.

Or, several earthfamilies might bond to create a Cyberstate.

And, just like the state is composed of citizens

Cyberstates are composed of cybercitizens.

Cybercitizens can by real and therefore be a cybersapien,

or they can be created.

Just like corporations can gain person status in the nationstate

Cyberbeings can gain person status in the cyberstate.

without being a cybersapien,

Cyberbeings may exist only in cyberspace.

Cyberbeings may or may not be cybercitizens of a cyberstate.

They might be cyberscallywags.

And they can also take on form if they choose.

Cyberbeings might buy real estate, equities, or patents,

or help you part with some of yours.

Just like it is impossible to be part of healthy functioning nation state,

if you cannot read and if you cannot vote intelligently,

It is impossible to be part of the cyberstate,

if you are not an educated somewhat sophisticated cyberbeing.

And yes, there are real issues here of equity and ease of entrance.

Cyberbeings have high speed links to I P.

Cyberbeings have IT capabilities.

Cyberbeings have cyberphones.

Cyberbeings have cyberbank accounts.

Cyberbeings link together with other cyberbeings.

They pay there bills in cyberspace.

The collect their monies and rents in cyberspace.

They know their little corner of cyberspace.

And they create a corner of their own.

It's like standing out on the street with your guitar.

It's like walking around town to see what's in the windows,

It's like going into a bar and talking to the people who hang out there.

Maybe to never come back again,

but maybe to come back again and again.


An earthfamily is a cyberbeing that is composed of

cybersapiens.

These cybersapiens choose to create a new social contract.

These cybersabiens have no common ground,

other than their promises and their good faith,

and the faithful creation of cybercommunity.

They share a vision, a world view together.

Just like the new world,

that was discovered just a few short centuries ago,

provided a great potential for the formation of

new nation states,

The discovery of the new cyber world

will provide a great potential for

new cyberstates,

and new cybernations.


The unreal world

is becoming more

and more

real.

And the real world

is becoming more

and more

surreal.

Did you catch Senator Hillary Clinton's speech at the Aspen Ideas Festival? Check the link--hope it works. She is such a Hegelian force IMHO.
