The possibilities for saving us the suffering of billions of humans are contained within the self contained but fully connected community and network of communities of the megatower people.
Actually, in pure and undeniable deduction of practicality and our future needs; I see that our future depends on this very idea being implemented. Because we are out of land and running out of food and energy and truly cannot afford to be anything but efficient in our existence if Earth (and us wonderful humans) are to survive without a disastrous history of mass suffering and deaths by famine and flood and drought. We must conserve our wild spaces and all life and we must come together as neighbors closer than ever in the history of homo sapiens.
A solution in the category of: why haven’t we begun this? While we expand our population toward twelve billion people by 2050, and while life becomes more expensive and so more challenging and more complex, we need to build upward and gather together in communities that both conserve and enhance all life, land, earth and sky on Earth:
The self-sufficient megatower is an old idea used by the creators of Simcity in their hit game Cities of Tomorrow. It stands digitally as a reasonable dream in this game, that I play (perhaps) 20 hours per week (lie!).
Magnificent, standing alone and piercing the clouds anywhere, or in fully integrated groups with their similar designs as twins, triplets, massive artworks of function meets form the towers can become a city in any city or a shining community in a rural valley, or a formerly barren mountainside grouped together in the middle of an ocean’s gulf or a wide river or the middle of a lake.
One hundred floors, or two-hundred-and-fifty, the sky is not the limit, only the size of the footprint of land conservation space - relative to stability of height as it can grow with us always.
The megatower can be life-saving place to live. Health and all welfare needs are quickly available inside each tower, with medical clinics, spas, gyms, and entertainment theaters and arcades.
The funding and then construction of one of these human life-savers is a boost and any region's economy as tens of thousands personally assemble every tower and the technology of all humanity goes into every tower.
Shopping contained for all necessities of life and if you can’t find it one megatower hop-into one of the magnetic sky bridge cars to another megatower within minutes while you are whisked around the communities as you sit on your ass sipping a mocha latte with your AI sex companion (repair and parts shops in every tower).
Energy as long as the sun shines. Solar arrays that line the building’s height or tower in spectacle from it’s crowned rooftop.
Recycling fully contained for collection, preparation, and shipping of all materials.
Park floors with ceilings of 150 feet and growing exotic and local vegetation, large grassy lawns and holographic beautiful days and starry nights.
Farming floors where a large fraction of a tower’s food needs are grown under ideal conditions.
Every tower is in itself an employment place for hundreds or thousands in keeping it running in farming, recycling, retail, restaurant and entertainment, security and social services, teaching and child care.
The wind or rain or floods or flying sharks that eat people, no one in any megatower will be in harm’s way.
Free heating from the sun, and free cooling from the constant cool of the earth beneath it, our comfort conquered.
On earthquake fault zones, it’s inter floor meniscus absorb the damage while it’s giant hydraulic footings allow for calculated absorption of strong quakes and tremors.
An education level that contains all grade levels of education and can accommodate children from 3 towers.
Easy aerial drone delivery and shipping to hundreds of convenient locations along the outer walls of the megatowers. Including a launch station for personal commuter drones.
Office levels that can employ 5 - 10 thousand per day.
I could go on for days in listing the possibilities of the megatower that could save us:
A zeppelin and or helicopter and lift plane port on the rooftop.
Advertising that presents to the sky big beautiful commercials for diarrhea drugs.
Tower jumping and very long bungee-cord jumping.
Remote controlled and autopilot delivery and shipping throughout the tower network.
Hot air balloon and hang gliding launches.
A water slide to the ground.
Personal parachuting to work.
Suction cup tower climbing.
To the credit of the Simcity developers; a super roller coaster on the rooftop that tosses passenger cars into the air and catches them again in a three times looping ride.
