The words “Is There Anybody Out There?”, are part of the lyrics of the largely instrumental song from the Pink Floyd album The Wall. One may think that nobody is out there on the islands of the UMMOA, but that is not entirely true.
The Mayor of Cyberterra has established the domain’s terrestrial coordinates by convention at 43°0’0″ North and 15°0’0″ East, a mathematical point in the middle of the Adriatic Sea, and literally in the middle of nowhere. While ships frequently pass by near Cyberterra, we are certain that the Germans Agnes Fakesch and Christian Kapik visited Cyberterra on 15 May 2007. For these reasons, Cyberterra is a cybernetic realm, not a virtual realm. You cannot physically visit a virtual realm, but you can visit a cybernetic one.
Although Navassa Island is uninhabited, transient Haitian fishermen and others have been known to camp on the island.
Serranilla Bank’s Yahoo Islet, aka Beacon Cay, the largest islet in the Bank, is overbuilt with small military facilities that house a small rotating garrison of Colombian naval personnel. There is a lighthouse on a coral ledge in the southwest approach to the bank. The lighthouse was first erected in 1982, and was reconstructed in May 2008 by the Colombian Ministry of Defence. It is currently maintained by the Colombian Navy despite US constitutional claims under the provisions of the Guano Islands Act (persons born on Serranilla Bank to non-citizens are considered by the United States to be US nationals, but not US citizens). Colombia also claims Bajo Nuevo Bank as part of the department of San Andrés and Providencia, and naval patrols in the area are carried out by the San Andrés fleet.
The US Coast Guard visits Jarvis Island annually only to make sure everything is okay. Same situation applies to Baker Island and Howland Island.
Limited visits to the Palmyra Atoll National Wildlife Refuge are allowed, including those by private recreational sailboat or motorboat. Visits must have prior approval however, with access to Tallini Island (aka Cooper Island) arranged through the Nature Conservancy.
Kingman Reef is wetted or awash most of the times, and it is uninhabited. Amateur radio operators from around the world have occasionally visited the reef to put it “on the air” through DX-peditions.
On Midway Atoll, the US Fish & Wildlife Service (USFWS) employs about 6 staff personnel, and has about 10 to 12 volunteers stay for 3 to 4 month stints throughout the year. Also, the USFWS has brought out a contractor to operate the facilities at Midway. This company is the Chugach Alaska Corporation, and it is a Native American corporation based out of Anchorage, Alaska. Additionally, Midway has 4 airport/fireman contract workers, and one Port Authority (PA) worker.
The facilities on Wake Island are also managed by the civilian Chugach Alaska Corporation. The 611th Air Support Group consists of two squadrons that provide surveillance radars, airfields, communications, and worldwide-ready Eleventh Air Force (EAF) warriors for homeland defense, decisive force projection, and aerospace command and control in Alaska. We found out recently that on 1 October 2010, the 611th Air Support Group is adding eight tropical locations in the Pacific to the list of sites it already manages around Alaska, and two of the locations will be Wake Island and Johnston Atoll (apparently 1,200 US military and civilian contractor personnel are stationed on Johnston Atoll).
When one thinks that some UMMOA islands are only inhabited by military personnel from not one, but two countries, only on official tour of duty, and/or inhabited by temporary civilian contractors, most of them not even American nationals or citizens; that some UMMOA islands are only visited about once a year, or even less frequently; that two people visited an UMMOA quasi-island and/or cybernetic realm, and thus had no terra firma to actually land on; and that according to some sources, ETs and Terrestrials have met on Johnston Atoll’s remote Kita Island (aka Akau Island) in November 2009, so even some ‘non-humans’ may have temporarily visited the UMMOA; then it is clear that only a few can claim to possess real UMMOA citizenship, and the few who possess real UMMOA citizenship are the ones that live every day on the UMMOA through their minds, and through their service, but also the ones who maintain, or help maintain, the UMMOA’s .um top-level domain (TLD) every day are clearly UMMOA citizens, and you cannot rationally take it away from them — not even I can’t! — because they can provide Proof of UMMOA Citizenship that is sufficient in any court of law. Everybody else is either a US or Columbian soldier; a Haitian fisherman; a transient worker employed by a Native American corporation, and who may be a Thai citizen; or even an Extraterrestrial. All of these people are clearly non-UMMOA citizens.
Is there anybody out there? Sure there is, and he/she is an Ummoagian, even though he/she never set foot on any UMMOA soil! Everybody else is really just in transit; everybody else simply doesn’t belong to the place, and may even have come from Outer Space!
Ummoagians are not people from a place (past), but people going to a place (future).
