Lastly, we’re getting closer and closer to finalizing the internet strategy that will be necessary to share everything we are creating. Connection options.

Solutioneering Internet, Solutioneering Our Future

Solutioneering Internet

Listed from best to worst, the internet options for any location are:

  1. Physical connection of high-speed internet line (Fiber, Cable, T3, DSL)
  2. High-speed wireless internet service
  3. DIY wireless internet service (purchasing area/rights near property that can access high-speed physical connection and establish wireless point-to-point link onto property)
  4. Satellite internet connection

This simple list is the result of hours of research determining that the details of the first two options are really what an organization open source and free-sharing as much as we are will need. Here are the specifics of the two options:

  1. Physical data connection, options include:
    1. Buried cabling between buildings/zones (buried at least 1m down)
      1. Fiber optic cable (up to ~40 Gbps), around $0.75/ft
        1. Single-mode (20km+)
        2. Multi-mode (up to 300m)
      2. Coax cable (up to ~10 Gbps), up to 100m, around $0.15/ft
      3. Ethernet cable (up to ~1 GBps),  up to 75m, around $0.10/ft
    2. Wireless ‘Point-to-Point’/’Line-of-Sight’ connection system (up to ~1.4 Gbps), around $2000/connection, plus cost of tower and cable connections

The first option is 10-40x better and the option we are now seeking to confirm if a realistic implementation option exists for our remote location. Stay tuned as our research continues.

DUPLICABLE CITY CENTER PROGRESS

This last week week Da Ku (Mechanical Engineer) finished the natural pool indoor/outdoor transition point redesign including a materials list and the video and design specifics you see here showing two plexiglass doors that will open. This two-door system creates an additional space in the middle to improve insulative properties and allow for easy cleaning of both sides of the plexiglass to keep them clean and easy to see through. Here is the best summary image and more images are on the natural pool page:

WHAT ONE COMMUNITY IS CREATING

One Community is creating a place to grow together and change the world together, along with a goal to be solutioneering our future. We are creating a space that helps each other live in integrity with each other and the planet as we strive to be the greatest versions of ourselves. We do this by harmoniously respecting each other, nature, and the rest of our one shared planet.

Our goal is to demonstrate what we feel is the most sustainable, healthy, and fun environment we can create. A place based on compassion, kindness, and collaboration, serving as an example for what is possible in terms of solutioneering our future. This replicable community will serve as an example for what is possible.

Throughout our design process we are open sourcing and free-sharing everything needed for construction and replication. This includes what we call “Highest Good” approaches to food, energy, housing, education, for-profit and non-profit economics design, social architecture, fulfilled living, stewardship practices and more. We are creating these resources for implementation as individual components or complete developments called teacher/demonstration hubs. These hubs will help launch additional hubs as awareness and knowledge grow, furthering the cause of solutioneering our future.

BUILDING THE FIRST OF MANY

One Community will be the first teacher/demonstration hub. It will function as an experiential-learning model that facilitates mass participation to address humanity’s most pressing challenges through: Solutioneering Our Future, A replicable model for expansion, building seven self-sufficient village/city prototypes, becoming the world leader in open-source sustainability solutions, and evolving and expanding ALL aspects of sustainable living.

 

WHY ONE COMMUNITY IS CREATING THIS

The One Community self-replicating model is capable of creating a sustainable planet within 30 years. We will achieve this by establishing successful teacher/demonstration hubs on every continent, thus solutioneering our future. Villages include designs appropriate for each of the five main types of climates. They also include options for even the most challenged economies. These hubs will collaborate with one another, share ideas, resources, and work together as a network to heal the planet. They will also transform the global lifestyle to a more enjoyable, fulfilling, healthy, and sustainable one.

The specifics of how One Community is accomplishing this can be found on the One Community Solution Model to Create Solution-creating Models Page. Research supporting and showing the benefits of a model like this can be found on our Research and Resources Articles Archive, further reinforcing the importance of solutioneering our future.

Even if we don’t achieve our ultimate goal of global transformation, a self-replicating teacher/demonstration model like this will take a relatively short period of time to positively affect millions while inspiring millions more.  For One Community residents (the Pioneer Team), the idea of creating and sharing the social and recreational experience with visitors is also fun, exciting, fulfilling, and an additional reason why we are creating this, thus fostering a sense of community and commitment to solutioneering our future.

 

ONE COMMUNITY’S 4-PHASE STRATEGY

One Community is building solution-creating models designed to create additional solution-creating models to specifically facilitate exponential and sustainable global teacher/demonstration village growth. The following four phases of the strategy we are applying are designed to support each other and accelerate the process globally:

Phase I: Solutioneering Our Future by Demonstrating a Better Way

We are designing One Community to demonstrate an experience of living that we believe most people will consider to be better because it will be more enjoyable and fulfilling. We also think most people will consider it better because it is made possible specifically through a foundation of sustainable sustainability and a philosophy that is for The Highest Good of All, ultimately contributing to creating global sustainability.

Phase II: Solutioneering Our Future with Open Source Project-Launch Blueprinting

Everything we do we are open source project-launch blueprinting and free-sharing to make it as easy and affordable as possible to duplicate, adapt, and evolve in the manner that suits each individual and/or group’s needs. Free-sharing information like this is our aggressive-exposure engine and an aspect of One Community that will accelerate indefinitely as we continue to build our team, move onto the property, and continuously build and evolve everything that is One Community.

Phase III: Solutioneering Our Future by Inviting the World to Participate

Everything we are open source project-launch blueprinting is designed to invite the world to participate by duplicating it as either individual components or complete teacher/demonstration communities, villages, and cities that will be able to be built almost anywhere in the world, thereby solutioneering our future. Additionally, people can join One Community as members, consultants and/or partners, or use the suggestions links on our open source project-launch blueprinting hubs to help with the design, implementation, and evolution process. Scholarships, weekend learning and work crews, and tourism will be foundations of One Community once we have sufficient infrastructure in place to support these options.

Phase IV: Solutioneering Our Future with Universal Appeal and Global Expansion

As One Community continues evolving and establishing ourselves, everything we create and promote will serve as the engine to inspire people to align with the concept of open source and sustainable living for The Highest Good of All, further solutioneering our future. We are doing this to create mainstream appeal and our path to achieving this appeal is demonstrating a happier, more affordable, and ecologically friendly model of living that can be built anywhere in the world.

Open source project-launch blueprinting it all is how we believe the model will spread and, possibly most importantly, that it will predictably spread even faster in the areas where it is needed most because building restrictions, the cost of land, and materials costs are in most cases lower in these areas.

 

SUMMARY

One Community sees the issues of the world as interdependent and interconnected. To address them simultaneously, we are open-source blueprinting a more advanced standard of living by designing holistic, environmentally-regenerative, self-sustaining, adaptable solutions for all areas of sustainability. We will model these within a comprehensive “village/city” which will be built in the southwestern U.S. This teacher/demonstration hub will be a place people can experience a new way of living and then replicate it with our open source blueprints: creating a model solution that creates additional solution-creating models.
