25510 - The topostrategic Australia

N. Lygeros
Translated from the Greek by Athena Kehagias

When we examine Australia, we don’t merely see a State, but an entire continent with regard to its size in acreage.
But this peculiarity should not underestimate the fact that its population is relatively small even at the Confederation level.
Additionally, in actual fact the largest cities of Australia are all situated right on the contact zone with the oceans.
In other words, while the acreage is regarding a disc, with the topostrategic approach in the case of the population, we have a boundary between the land and sea.
Therefore the combination of these two information elements, allows us to see the Australian nation as a circle.
This circle is determined by its center and its radius, without these entities to belong to it, as they constitute foundations of the structure without constituting an infrastructure.
This practically means that there is a geostrategic depth, at least in terms of the acreage, but it’s not sustainable in the long run.
It is important at a high strategy level, for this element to be integrated within Australia’s defense strategy.
Additionally, the saturation of the cycle will cause the disk saturation in the absence of such an approach.
Ie, a severe population change could cause serious overall changes.
Australia’s sphere is not isolated on the northern side and this means that there is a buffer zone at the islands level, between Asia and Australia.
This differentiation does in actual fact separate this sphere from the sphere of Antarctica.
