|Space science advances at Saint René Descartes University, and a whole lot more
In the last days of April, and the beginning of May 2013, discoveries have been made at Saint René Descartes University that make alternative political science, that make a social or soft science, as rigourous as the physical and chemical sciences (hard sciences).
The greatest discovery is this: Old World clans, New World bands, and Newest World micronations are essentially the same thing, and I can prove it, prove it mathematically!
Another insight is that micronations are coming into being because they actually represent the next step in the societal evolution of mankind, the step that will eventually lead to the colonisation of space. No, the current Official World or UN/UNICEF World has neither the resources, nor sufficient wisdom, to achieve the permanent colonisation of space.
As the book I published back in 2009 shows, "you need about 15 households to start a successful micronation, approximately about 3 Italian inhabited nuclei, or about some 36 to 48 people. Interestingly enough, this turns out to be midway between the size of an Italian inhabited nucleus (5 buildings) and an Italian inhabited centre (25 buildings)."
So a micronation is actually that very strange thing that is midway in size between the smallest possible hamlet (Italian: nucleo abitato or borgata) and the smallest possible parish (Italian: centro abitato or frazione).
What's even more interesting, a hamlet and a parish are both sedentary inhabited localities, while a micronation is nomadic, as nomadic as Old World clans and New World bands.
But a micronation is also the smallest relatively self-sufficient human social organisation, and now I can show not only how many people you need to start a successful micronation, but also how many people you need to start the micronational form of a city, i.e. the smallest possible real city.
Well, you need some 132 to 176 people, an average of about 154 people!
This number, by the way, is also very close to the "magic number" of people that anthropologist John H. Moore, from the University of Florida, figured out you need to maintain a stable population, and enough genetic variation, for a journey into space.
Yes, just as computer chips are the tiniest artificial brains, micronations are the tiniest human societies required for the successful colonisation of space.
Space science, and a whole lot more, is advancing at Saint René Descartes University.
