The Problem with Paradise

It's theoretically possible for a utopia
to be far enough away from human society
to sustain itself indefinitely,
but it will want to have some contact inevitably
for a utopia has nothing to teach
without insoluble problems.

Erin that is not an insoluble problem...you just have to go past the edge.

utopia follows along the same theory as perpetual motion...man it really sounds good on paper but you just know someone out of spite once that thing started itself going would hold it still to stop it. That is the nature of non utopians.

If there is a utopia without humans to experience it, does it really exist?

Trees are falling down in empty forests all over the place with this one.

Makes the old brain churn this morning...
