That's an interesting term, "involution". The Korean DMZ is almost four hundred square miles.

A related phenomenon I've noticed is the no-man's-land near super highways. There are often amazing things living steps away from the 70 mph vehicular traffic, permanently disconnected from most pedestrian visitation. There's a beautiful riparian community in my small town, but you have to run accross the highway to get there or crawl through a culvert. Very few people go there or even know it exists.

I saw some long range planning by the township for a park there, but it could only happen if and when the state were to re-align the highway, or if a tunnel could be built.

How interesting. In my area, some of the flora in the "islands" in the interstate are pretty interesting - what I can make out of it at 70 MPH, of course. Things like tamarack larches that you usually find only in bogs.
