You quoted me talking about the destruction of cosmic wormholes. The
difference between crossing a bridged river and crossing an unbridged river
is hardly any difference at all compared to the difference between crossing
a few megaparsecs instantaneously or crossing a few megaparsecs at light

In any case, I'm not sure what your point is. Are you trying to encourage
me to think of ways in which cultural diversity could be promoted
post-diaspora, or what?
