The Binary Best of Both Worlds

Today’s Clews Views is going to be a little bit esoteric.

In fact, some folks will say that it’s a lot esoteric.

And you know what? They will probably be right.

Because the very concept of an online/onsite – a binary -- “Friendship Village” that I am about to lay out for you is going to “take man (and woman) where they have never gone before.”

And it will allow – no, make that empower – you to use the selectivity and exclusivity of the world wide web to live the life you have always dreamed of.

But never before knew how to make those dreams come true.

Here is how I summed up the concept of a web-inspired and acquired Friendship Village when recently asked to give an “Elevator Definition”:

“Now, with the advent and advantages of the internet, you can live anywhere you want in the world – melding the best possible elements of onsite and online living – and solely share your life, your hopes, and your dreams with those of like mind and a common spirit.”

Simply put, the online/onsite Friendship Village construct lays out in fairly comprehensive detail where much  of the world – developed, developing, and undeveloped countries included -- is headed in the very near future.

More importantly, it opens up the very real possibility for you to finally be able to live the life of your dreams as you so choose…

Both onsite and online. And/or in tandem.

In short, it offers the binary best of both worlds.

The choice is yours.

Even in its most rudimentary stages (and increasingly as it expands exponentially) the Friendship Village (which to a very large extent is much of what the Offshore Club is the progenitor) will empower those with a commonality of interests to decide that they would prefer to live their lives both online and onsite solely in the pleasant and productive company of those they embrace…

And no longer have to be tied by artificial, geographical bonds – or, governments -- to those with whom they increasingly have nothing whatsoever in common,or, perhaps, even abhor. 

On a highly personal level, the online/onsite Friendship Village will empower you to live the life you love with (and exclusively with) those you like. With those who share your beliefs, ambitions, values, virtues, joys, antagonisms, aversions, and, yes, occasionally even sorrows. With those who enrich your life, enhance your journey, and share your dreams.

Physically (onsite) and virtually (online), your Friendship Village neighbors can live down the street, across the country, or on the other side of the world. They can be red, yellow, black, or white; rich, poor, or fair to middling. They can be old or young, male or female, straight, gay, single, married, committed, uncommitted, straightlaced, or libertine.

And they will always be as easily accessible as the click of a mouse, a knock on the door – or both!

Your binary Friendship Village community can be political… or cultural… or social…  or psychic… or intellectual... or even tied to a single all-encompassing singular pursuit (like wine tasting, or even raising pigeons if you so choose). Your choice.

It can be newfangled, or old fashioned. It can be for exercise freaks, or intellectual snobs. For those who seek the solace of eventide. Or those who walk on the wild side.

Your online/onsite Friendship Village can have a population numbering in the scores, the  hundreds, the thousands, the millions – or eventually in the tens of millions.

Right now, for example, your Offshore Club is in essence an online Friendship Village with a population of about 100,000 – all like-minded, with a commonality of interests…

The primary common interest at this point in time being the desire to move offshore to the good life at a great price in the sun, sand and surf of Central and South America!

The fact is, you Offshore Club has already started spawning binary (online/onsite) Friendship Villages throughout Latin America. And, in fact, I’ll give you are real-life example in just a minute.

Are you with me so far?

The point is, it’s your Friendship Village. So you can make it as inclusive – or exclusive – as you wish. It’s all up to you to make it center around and be populated by the people, places, products, services, activities, and events you deem worthy and worthwhile. 

And keep in mind that it can combine the best of both worlds – brick and mortar as well as click and modem. It can be as rock-solid as the earth beneath your feet – and as remote as the troposphere through which you transmit your text messages, emails, photos, videos, call-outs, and come-ons.

Now, let me give you a real-life example of a binary, online/onsite Friendship Village, taking you from esoteric to terra firma.

Sound good?

As most regular followers of my weekly podcast – Coffee with Carib Carter (Monday at noon at offshore.club) – know, my wife and I own a home at La Ceiba Beach Club (LCBC) in Honduras.

We deliberately chose LCBC because those who live there now – and those who will join us in the future – are pretty much like-minded people with a commonality of interest.

Specifically, that interest encompasses living in a beautiful, oceanfront gated, guarded, and gardened community – with good, decent, hardworking people who enjoy each other’s company and respect each other’s privacy.

Some of our fellow LCBCers we know personally – they are knock-on-door onsite neighbors.

Others we know only virtually – and we share our thoughts, feelings, good times, and concerns online.  

Right now, there are only 100 or so online/onsite friends and neighbors at LCBC.

Eventually, there will likely be thousands.

But, whatever the number – and wherever our friends and neighbors are -- La Ceiba Beach Club will always be a binary Friendship Village where – as we said at the outset:

…those with a commonality of interests can decide that they would prefer to live their lives both online and onsite in the pleasant and productive company of those they embrace…

And no longer have to be tied by artificial, geographical bonds – or governments -- to those with whom they increasingly have nothing whatsoever in common, or, perhaps, even abhor. 

In short, the online/onsite Friendship Village will empower you to live the life you love with (and exclusively with) those you like. With those who share your beliefs, ambitions, values, virtues, joys, antagonisms, aversions, and, yes, occasionally even sorrows. With those who enrich your life, enhance your journey, and share your dreams.

And they will always be as easily accessible as the click of a mouse, a knock on the door – or both!

And remember, with the reach, efficiency, convenience, and convergence of the world wide web, the Friendship Village of your choice can be a remote fishing village like Puerto Armuelles, in Panama… a small town like El Calan in Honduras… a quaint community in bustling city like Monte Video in Uruguay… an exquisite residential resort like Gran Pacifica in Nicaragua… or an island getaway like Grand Baymen in Belize.

The world of your liking is now there for the taking.

And with a binary online/onsite Friendship Village…

You get the best of both worlds (esoteric, or not).

Finally, at last, the choice is yours!
