Excellent description & analysis. "While Deunan is still somewhat overwhelmed by the peacefulness and sense of security, Chiffon felt dead. She agreed that Olympus is an ideal city for society to flourish but she felt it was like a zoo built by weird animals to keep themselves locked inside."
Video games and stories both entertain. We replace fear of violence, starvation, oppression, (and happiness in freedom from them,) with abstract tension and release: Learning maps and learning new skills (expertise.) Is utopia a land of games, and loving game players? Competition within a framework of cooperation? Or is this futile, and must people hate each other, to the core of their being, ready to commit murder, if there is to be meaningful love? Compare with Bioroids and in utopia Olympus in Appleseed. Though, Deunan seems to accept the superiority of the Bioroid way of life: Passion and inhuman care coexist. See also Reflections on Ghandi: A human cannot be a saint.
