SOWING ACCORD 4: A prototype socioeconomic reality of humans advancing across the solar system – 2021-2071

Military industrial complexes (MICs) transformed into exploration information networks (EINs).

The following text is a “prototype sketch” that allows readers to refine concepts on their own and even begin implementing in part(s) as they see fit and are able. This piece is not political analysis (what is), political commentary (what and who is to blame) or an international/national security scenario (what could happen).

  • Integrated cultural bioregions replace the nation-state system at some point before 2030, technically in effect since 1648 (373 years as of 2021)
  • Synergistic interchange replaces one dimensional exchange as currently experienced within all artificial scarcity-based economic constructs – capitalism, socialism, barter, cryptocurrencies and social credit systems
  • Existing scarcity-based public and private contracts transformed with paradigm change from militaries declassifying over-the-horizon research and development projects
  • Free (scarcity-based concept not applicable in this prototype sketch) K-Ph.D. among public universities and university/lab schools worldwide provide the basis for unleashing common scientific and intercultural understanding and eventually optimized human social dynamics across the solar system, en route to becoming galactic and intergalactic civilizations over time spans yet to be determined
  • Free-rider problem absorbed by exponential innovation and novel invitations of open experimentation across research sectors inspiring self-motivation/actualization – medical, aviation, human potential, integrated artificial intelligence etc.

Think what cannot be done today and achieve it by tonight, or overnight – at least in prototype form.

SOWING ACCORD 2: Humans on the move

Prospects for synergistic power across the solar system and eventually beyond.

We now have the opportunity to construct synergistic power among close to eight billion individual humans. If we the majority of humans focus on doing this in many ways both preliminary and eventual, those few who guard their entrenched power relative to others in the current status quo will come to see advantages to their quality and length of lives from our inclusive efforts.

We can redesign our social structures to maximize individual freedom as well as foundational needs. No revolution, evolution, devolution or power-corrupting hierarchies are necessary. Synergistic-heterarchical mobilization among empowered individuals is practical rather than utopian in thought. Present achievements through hierarchical human power are at best duplicated and at worst functioning at cross purposes. We have many threats to continually overcome, as a human team:

3×3 Global Drills Worksheet Problem Set.

Most humans are emotionally connected and legally constrained by our nations of birth or adoption, for good and bad. What is also clear is that the 373 year old nation-state system that is based on exclusivity and that emerged from the Treaty of Westphalia in 1648 is proving incapable of serving us optimally, pandemic or not. This is a harsh reality among many. Before we eventually power down the nation-state system, though preserve and extend associated universal values if we can, we need to have built a worthy replacement that will be ready to come online. That endeavor is beyond the scope of this one article but that does not mean that we have to engineer something overly complex. In fact, just the opposite is needed. Think of a multi-person rowing shell as an analogy from the perspective of design. Sowing Accord plans to offer frequent input to all concerned who together have the power to do what is responsible and bold. This video from September 2020 is an example:

Equally, as most all of us have been born into the social system of scarcity-based economics, we confuse it with an unchangeable force of nature because it has remained unchanged since Mesopotamia in its fundamental structure. An excellent voice on this topic is financial economist Armen Papazian and his innovation/proposal, Public Capitalization Notes, in terms of enabling large-scale and long-term human space exploration. How we might replace scarcity-based economics will not be outlined in this brief article. However, consider viewing the following video from August 2017, the first of seven on abundance-based interchange economics from 2017-2019 to spawn new thinking, hopefully:

More specific and nuanced articles will be written not in the form of arguments but as mini-prototypes that consider multiple-opposing points of view, resulting eventually in what is known as single-text negotiation. This innovation was pioneered by U.S. diplomat Ralph Bunche in 1948, one of many influences to be discussed in Sowing Accord going forward.

Global sea rise migration within 40 years

Here, we consider rapid climate change on Earth, no matter the cause, resulting in drastic global sea rise for next generations of humans based on the ongoing disintegration of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet (WAIS) since May 2014, Greenland ice loss from 2002-2016 and glacial melt around the world. (See also, “Ramp-up In Antarctic Ice Loss Speeds Sea Level Rise,” Sea Level Change/Sea Level News, NASA, June 13, 2018.)

Utilizing the 3×3 Global Drills process, any six people or less in any organization(s) can amend the working outline below. It offers a simple but comprehensive structure for how all humans, working together, even in indirect ways can create synergies of effort over 40 years to migrate inland a majority of each vulnerable coastal urban population center on Earth.


Cosmic – Americas

National (USA) Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) monitoring of oceans. NASA/Industry plan and launch space-based solar power satellites to power globally distributed infrastructure.


Cosmic – Africa-Europe

European Space Agency (ESA) space-based solar power satellites to power globally distributed infrastructure. Construction of launch facilities from Somalia to Tanzania, taking advantage of centrifugal force of Earth to assist escape velocity. (See also German Research Center for Geosciences-NASA project, “First Laser Light for GRACE Follow-on,” Sea Level Change/Sea Level News, NASA, July 2, 2018.)


Cosmic – Asia-Pacific

Ongoing satellite monitoring of weather patterns by Chinese National Space Administration (CNSA) and Japanese Aerospace and Exploration Agency (JAXA).


Individual and Societal – Americas

Learn from Cuban public health and literacy programs. Prolonged and steady evacuation can sustain Brazil, Argentina and Mexico as new global economic engines.


Individual and Societal – Africa-Europe

Replicate academic structure of “ancient” European universities and Plato’s Academy globally while preserving local customs and values.


Individual and Societal – Asia-Pacific

Learn from Arab women on family management. Necessary vaccines. New schools and universities inland.


Environmental – Americas

Build new small resilient cities in “Tornado Alley,” Amazon Basin and Patagonia.


Environmental – Africa-Europe

All African coastal urban centers are of concern. Copenhagen, Hamburg and French Riviera are of strong concern.


Environmental – Asia-Pacific

Lessons of December 26, 2004 Asian tsunami: Listen to indigenous populations. U.S. Navy seawater desalinators can be force for good across Asia-Pacific.


In September 2017, within the confluence of a United States-North Korea nuclear crisis, a 7.1 earthquake in Mexico City and Category 4 and 5 Atlantic hurricanes hitting eastern sections of the Americas, I offered a wider context in which to consider global sea rise, that of solar system resilience:



More in the way of personal narrative as to how and why I created the 3×3 Global Drills process from 2005-2012 is forthcoming via my YouTube and Vimeo channels in addition to occasional written pieces here on my blogroll.
