The 90 Simplest GPS Addresses in the World - A work in progress

Take A Closer Look

If some of these GPS locations -- there are around 90 -- were to come alive, it could change the world. Numbers could take on deeper meanings. Here's more analysis: 
1. An Open Letter to Vladimir Putin (March 15, 2014)
2. An Introduction to Russia's 60/60 (March 26, 2009)
3. Learning one's Global Time Quadrants (November 8, 2009)
4. The most simple GPS positions  (April 15, 2010)
5. Wanted - New Entrepreneurs  (May 28, 2010)

From 70°N 70E in Russia to 40N 40E in Turkey


Over the Mediterranean Sea

From 30N30E in Egypt to 6N6E in Nigeria

From 16N16W in Senegal to 6N6E in Cote d'Ivoire


13°S13°E Angola to 30°S 30°E South Africa


Global people on our ever-shrinking planet need new metaphors about who we are and how we envision the future.  The concept of GPS cities that explore the meaning of a number and space does just that. By doing so, it opens new avenues to understand ourselves, this world and our universe. As a people, we need to begin to grasp the importance of what is known as "the quantitative-qualitative divide."   Let's introduce the concept of  GPS Parkways (and, of course, if it all gets traction, a high-speed train along a robust highway) that connects all the proposed locations in Russia all the way down to 36/36 in Turkey. It would pick back up at the 31/31 in Egypt and go all the way down to the 6/6 in Nigeria. Two other highways could be considered for the other two quadrants where there are 29 additional sites. All of these locations, 90 sites, could be developed using the guidelines of UNESCO so they might someday qualify to be designated World Heritage sites.
