Just as a modern human-citizen should not have to be preoccupied with the reliability and safety of water and power supplies, transport systems, and a myriad of other elements of basic infrastructure, so should humem-citizens be free of such basic concerns. Only then can they develop and prosper, and provide greater benefits for their alpha-humans and for society.
Many of the physical components needed for the humem-state’s infrastructure are comparable to those of nation-states. For example, information technology systems, such as data centers and telecommunication networks and their associated energy supplies, are essentially equivalent. However, there are some fundamental differences in how the humem-state procures and deploys its infrastructure.
Many nation-state physical infrastructures, such as highways, dams, and power stations, include permanent physical assemblies (often erected on state land) that are established through multi-year projects based on long-term contracts with commercial providers.
By contrast, the humem-state does not possess land. During its early stages at least, its physical infrastructure is derived from existing nation-state infrastructure, probably through short- or medium-term leases of necessary resources. This offers the humem-state greater flexibility by reducing its capital needs. In addition, not actually owning the physical resources makes it possible to speed up the deployment of subsequent state-of-the-art systems whenever necessary, so that the humem-state is able to constantly expand and adapt its infrastructure to the rapidly evolving needs of its citizens.
Accordingly, the humem-state’s enduring infrastructure will comprise more organizational and procedural structures than fixed material resources.
For the humem-citizens and their alpha people, as long as the EP services are reliable and cost-effective, it matters little where the physical structures that support the services are located, or who owns them.
It is the humem-state’s responsibility to evaluate, procure, and deploy the basic services that humems will require to subsist and thrive. The state must free individuals from existential concerns, and constantly strive to expand the available services to allow its citizens to develop their full potential.
