1. In Our Galaxy
The world of DianToz once suffered great devastation at the hands of catastrophic climate change. Our species produced poisonous gasses through industrialization that nearly destroyed our civilization.
As we produced carbon dioxide, methane and other gases our oceans became warmer. Hurricanes and Cyclones grew in titantic magnitude and ravaged our world delivering herculean winds and rain storms to crowded parts of the planet. Many coastal cities were reduced to ground zero.
Because the polar caps experienced significant loss of ice and snow, countless islands and coastlines soon disappeared. Numberless people from all walks of life lost loved ones and material value. The only thing that remained for many were memories of better times.
As the great benefactors stepped up their battle against time, resources were no longer a problem. Science began to Solve the perilous dilemma of climate change.
One of the ways our civilization had great success was using zero carbon synthetic fuels. Upon the discovery of a new technology that could create synthetic fuel by removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, the time to reverse the damage went from decades to months.
Empiricism was saving our world.
Space Life is a breathtaking adventure. Asteroid Travel has become a very popular path for many of our people. AT has become an expedient way to reach all three solar systems in a alluring manner. Asteroids as home bases are also far easier logistically than a massive planet.
A major land rush came into existence as new worlds became the destination for many. Some choose living in one place and becoming involved in hands-on experiences utilizing enduring terraform projects and exotic genetic technologies. A more permanent habitat… A place they can call home.
Others choose the exploration of multiple wonders of a trinary star system. Whether one chose a planet, a moon, an asteroid, or even multiple asteroids crossing our three stars, home could be anywhere. Some of us call one world home and others call the stars home. Migrating through the asteroids was the more expedient and preferred choice of those who wanted the latter. There was ample real estate in asteroids.
For the first time in perhaps tens of thousands of years, dating back to the time when we had left our equator and migrated north, there are not enough people for all the available land.
The Space Frontier has been waiting for it’s children to come home.
Plenty of room for everyone. No more need for wars to possess land.
We have become a race of Space Nomads of a CosmoCratic Society
Less than 100 years ago scientists and developmental thinkers warned that civilization was faced with a perfect storm of ecological and social problems driven by overpopulation, overconsumption, and environmentally baleful technologies.
The difficult economic times were understandable given the misguided values of economics. There needed to be a deep fundamental restructuring of the economic principles in the current global system.
In the face of absolutely unprecedented crisis facing our civilization, The Interstellar Mining Foundation had no choice but to take dramatic action to avert a collapse of civilization. Either DianToz had to change and build an entirely new kind of global civilization, or face catastrophic consequences.
The Interstellar Mining Foundation could have held everybody hostage with its incredible wealth and power, instead, in its benevolence IMF came to the rescue. IMF had prepared well. These were the most successful and altruistic business people on the planet who enacted wisely.
By this time the world was moving towards globalization anyway as each nation became interdependent with all the others. When the revolution came, it was a peaceful series of events for most of the planet. There were a few rogue nation states who rebelled. But these despots had dwindling wealth and powers that were no match for The Great Transformation.
Soon all of DianToz was becoming united in a central cause that was always intended and dreamed about, but never fully realized. The great majority of DianToz was becoming a middle class that finally had a voice.
