History

Doctor Nancy E. Kaplan’s Unified Theory on Migrations, included in her famous book “Migrational Algorithmics for a Global SocioSystemic environment” published in 2065, represented a turning point in Humanity´s relationship with planet Earth. Her revolutionary thesis established a new paradigm on the old relationships between nation-states affiliated to the United Nations.

 

Her new approach proposed a new arrangement of borders as a function of strictly mathematical and socio-ecological variables, whilst respecting the History of civilizations. Since groups of people always tended to settle around water sources such as rivers, lakes and coasts during Humankind´s evolution, maintaining those original borders, which were mostly limited by geographical features, was not a problem for her theories. In the case of partitions politically “drawn” during colonial times, she chose to accept them. Most of the road and railway infrastructure built during the first half of the 21st century already adapted to these artificial lines and it was more ecological to maintain them than to remake them.

 

According to most analysts, the true catalyst for taking up Kaplan’s theories so quickly was the unexpected rise in sea level in 2068. It caused huge economic losses in areas such as Venice, the Spanish Mediterranean coast or the American west coast. Since sea levels did not rise equally around the globe, conflicts arose within the  nation-states themselves and between states which had historically been allies. Due to the digital single currency implemented in 2049, there was no currency speculation, so post-capitalism was in a situation of virtual collapse as it had to “really” assume the enormous economic losses and reconstruction costs. The new Capital-Science corporations as well as the classic economic pressure groups, such as the Bilderberg or Davos Forums, urged for new radical political reforms.

 

Another problem her theories solved was the eternal controversy about independence, which grew ever stronger during the first half of the past 21st century. The new geographical partitions proposed resolved the root of these conflicts, as the entire political geography became independent. Issues such as Quebec, Tibet, Kashmir, Catalonia, Ireland or the islands in the China Sea had no meaning with the new design. The reconfiguration of nation-states into SocioEcologically Stable Systems gave them all a new status. There were even certain paradoxes, such as the independence of the Aran Valley from Catalonia or the status of Civitas assumed by the town of Reus within SocioSystem Cataluña, to the detriment of Tarragona, which did not obtain it.

 

It took 30 years of transitions, negotiations and consensus for Kaplan’s Unified Theory of Migrations to be properly applied. It was fully adopted in an extraordinary session of the United Nations on June 18, 2098. Since then and thanks to new communication technologies using metaWaves, the use of backpalm bioChips and universal reGeneration, it is possible, or probable, that we can live together peacefully without exhausting the resources of planet Earth.

Characteristics

Territorial restructuring was based on criteria of population, consumption levels, availability of natural resources and migratory flows between territories. This mainly affected North Africa, which joined Europe, or the Asian continent, transversely divided by the old border between Russia and the People’s Republic of China.

 

The new 7 SocioContinents (migrations to Antarctica were left out) are covered by DoubleZero metaWave communication levels for InterPol and InterLex and SimpleZero level for politicians and the rest of the population. Their characteristics are the following:
