We might take the task of “putting a seastead on the water” as a project development task looking for the correct project balance.
It is like cooking a meal - rather than being about this, or that, it is about a harmonic mixture of basic ingredients. The correct dose of each element being the key factor that holds everything together. Avoiding overdose of certain ingrediens like spices is important. Making the whole concept agreeable and desireable to the “average investors taste”
As Galen said - “the poision is in the dose”.
It is not about yes salt or no salt - it is about “the right dose of salt”.
It is not about evolution or singularity it is about the right dose of both. If it is too far fetched investors will shu back - if it brings cero innovation investors will not like it either.

A tower on a reef might be considered a toxic dose of stationary.
A nomadic seastead on eternal move in a gyre a toxic dose of mobility.
So the real task is to put a project together that has “the right dose of everything” and is appealing to a wide spectrum of investors.
It is obvious that some investors will like spicey “defiance seasteads” like Blueseed (a barge sized venture to take on and neutralize US imigration politics)…currently folded…
While the mayority of investors will prefer rather ventures that “mind their own business” bringing in return on investment rather than focus on “far fetched political stunts” as business core.
Some investors like Elon Musk will prefer “far fetched” and “the challenges and risks that come with it”.
Many of those “seasteading ingredients” come in “contrasting pairs” like sugar and salt - a rule of the dumb the good solutions are in the middle of the scale and the bad solutions on the extreme ends of the scale.
It is quite obvious that the right formula or the right design for a seastead can not exist as it depends on the taste of the investors what is "the right mix " and you are better off as a developer doing EXACTLY what they want - instead of insisting implementing your “invention” or “idea”.
Salon talk vs business
salon talk seasteading has different objectives than the business of seasteading. Business plans born from amazing and amusing salon talk are frequently risky and non feasible business ventures. The reality of business is that the next logical step is always a boringly small step from what is here already in the sense of the evolutionary principle.
