Building our own continent
||Some may say we are all insane, others that we have a vision, while most see
the theory, but doubt if such a project will ever be possible. Originally we thought
that we are probably not talking of this happening within our lifetime,
however a great many advances
have been made, and we are far nearer now than we would have even dreamt
possible. It is wise however to look on this as a futuristic project,
something that may not happen in our lifetime, getting it right being more
important than making it happen faster.
The objective is to create our own land, as a floating complex spiral of large
islands, surrounded by a protective wall. In fact the latest designs have a large
tadpole shape appearance from a distance. The idea originated very early on, when
we first started looking at how a country could be optimally organized and ruled.
Of course it was totally theoretical, then when the choices project was renamed
Atlantis we had thought of a new land in the Atlantic, and with the change to
New Atlantis in 1996 we formalized the idea within our constitution.
If this can one day be done, then it will be;-
- The largest engineering project to be undertaken.
- To be one of only two man made structures visible from outer space, the
other being the great wall of China.
- The largest stimulant to world economies and the creation of employment.
- The creation of stimulus to new stock market companies.
- Great opportunities for all types of business.
- A new frontier for people.
- The greatest development and stimulus to scientific thought since the
- A chance to re-evaluate the way we organize society.
Perhaps these ideas may stimulate you to investigate further or stimulate you to stretch your
mind, exploring new ideas, technologies, opportunities or making you consider
the age of exploration has only just begun.
We have a very large web site devoted completely to building the new floating
country, it is at::-
You can find historic documents and discussion on this going back some years,
including discussion on feasibility, the original design requirements and more
We don't want to put too much emphasis on this, yes its interesting, and we are
working towards it, but it is not what New Atlantis is all about. Our objective
is to improve peoples lives and this is only one way of achieving this, and then
probably in the future while we have other methods that are improving lives
