In my opinion, we can add one more Internet when necessary, then another
one etc.

We can have as many Internets as we need, all different.

We just need a *network of Internets*.

The first (current) Internet is an IPv4 Internet.
The second Internet can be an IPv4 Internet too. In this case we would have
2 IPv4 Internets.
Obviously, in this case, we would have the same addresses used by two
different nodes in
the two Internets. I think it is possible to locate the node we need. I am
not here to discuss
these details.

The second Internet can be an IPv6 Internet.

The second Internet can be a IPv7 Internet.

The second Internet can be IPv6 but we may have a third one which is IPv7

We just need a network of Internets, all possibly different.
