Topic: linguistic islands

Greg, this somehow goes with the Journey of Mankind material -- particularly fits with some of the discussion as that gets towards more modern times, and there are islands which become cultures caused by weather patterns isolating outposts of humans.

A good chance also to put down one 'little' circumstance along the way to who we are now, by that website's story. At one time the number of humans left living after global catastrophe was down to _10,000_ persons. Or souls, as perhaps another age's way of saying it might be fitting.

This is a Greg Bear scenario -- and yet, we made it through, and became ourselves. Who will create what stages of ourselves next, and already are??

Best again,
Rouald, who had better get busy on something.
