There would be no mortgages in my cyber-communities

Since nobody has taken my bait - oh, some have done things with phrases I came up with like beyond green - I can elaborate my ideas in peace and full confidence that they will come to manifestation at some point. My big idea is the cyber-community of up to 10K living in an area a mile walk from side to side and end to end. Or a mile diameter. Four levels max, few or no stairs. And, no mortgages. Why? Because the community would be made up of spaces that could indeed be customized to the needs of the individual but which would be like lego bcocks in the sense that they would be interchangeable, literally shells. Occupancy would be the only ownership and for that one would pay a subscription. A cyber-community is a giant - mile wide - matrix skeleton that does the work of transporting energy, water and waste, an eco-matrix that would recycle and reprocess everything on a scale that no home could afford, with an effectiveness we have not yet dreamed of. The cyber-community would have no private property to speak, Its surfaces and spaces would have features (somewhat like apps) to which one might subscribe. A young couple might have two spaces in order to have some privacy - what we call space. A space or spaces could be added for children. The basic idea would be that everyone has their own room or space. Since spaces are modular within a matrix, dwellings and other establishments could expand and contract according to needs. Because a cyber-community would enhance today's neglected public space, the need for various rooms that we build into today's houses would recede. Social would be outside of one's private space. Mortgages would be a thing of the past. We would have cyberfied residence, work, play and education. Everything could happen from cyber-community to cyber community. You don't believe this will happen. Just watch.
