Imagine if all Earths' continents were connected and we were all one nation, what would life be like and what kind of world would this be?
Sarah,I think they already have. To some extent anyhow. Most ordinary people in the world don't wish each other any harm. We like peace and co-operation but there are other interest out there who just want more and more profit and power. They have the means to shape the world and they try to keep us apart because we would be so powerful if we spoke with one voice. Until now gentle people had no way to come together, to share concerns and hopes, but that is changing. Here we are talking and isn't it wonderful? I do worry about the future and I don't know what is going to happen but I have faith in people. My earnest hope is that the spirit of humanity will rise to reshape the world as we would have it.

This is a really imaginative and interesting question. Unfortunately, I don't think such a geographical arrangement would change us. I think the tendency for factions to rule and force those under them to fight a perceived 'enemy' would still shape our world. In fact after the initial excitement was over I think we would look around and see the same greedy people in charge. It is the people that need to come together.
