2. Utopia. Prototype of a new Paradies.

People of all ages live in Utopia. The number of residents is balanced.

Everyone who can work has the same income. Those unable to contribute to the gross national product also receive the same amount of national currency. This unity is called UfM (Unity for material things). With this money, the residents of Utopia can buy anything which is touchable. Accommodations are available in apartment buildings, single-family homes, shared apartments, wooden huts, or tents. Depending on the comfort the habitant desires, they pay a few or many UfMs. There are no privately owned properties.
Everyone lives close to their workplace. The people there don't need a vacation; they live in paradise.
To travel from A to B, they use ultralight bikes made of carbon narrow spoked wheels powered by pedals or have sails driven by the wind. Electrically powered vehicles are available in emergencies. Public transportation, when required, is free.
All kinds of food are available in abundance: millet, oatmeal, rice, fruits, vegetables, milk, eggs, bread, and whatever else. There are also grapes, beer, vines, Champagne, tobacco, hemp, chocolate, Black Forest cake and there’re like.
The products which require more effort to be produced cost a little more UfMs.
Clothing can be chosen individually. The clothes are all equally decorative, fashionable and comfortable. There are no brand names for bluffing.
There are plenty of places to have fun: tennis courts, golf courses with any number of holes, swimming pools, stadiums, saunas, and racetracks for alternative vehicles. And everything else they enjoy or need to relax: circuses, theaters, concerts, cinemas, discos, bars, fairs, open-air events, and anything else you can think of.
The inhabitants of Utopia are free to choose their way of life, their preferences, their priorities, and the fulfillment of their wishes. They are also free to have children or not.

  • There is nothing to inherit
  • No interest is charged.
  • There is no private ownership
  • Taxes, Insurances and banks don’t exist.
  • There are no armies or police.
  • But not everyone is the same, but everyone is equally rich.


  • Would the residents of Utopia take narcotic drugs?
  • Would anyone have a guilty conscience?
  • Would there be cases of suicide?
  • Would there be any crime?

3. A Parable: The Puzzle and the real life.

*Life is not just a game of dice. It's also a big puzzle.
He is tempted to invent a parable between puzzles and real life:

  • At first, there is a pile of disorganized, apparently shapeless parts.
  • They must be put together to form a picture.
  • In a real puzzle, the final picture is known; in the virtual puzzle, it is not.
  • You start to put the pieces together.
  • First, you use the parts with straight edges.
  • Then, you find the pieces that form a rectangular frame. In real life, this is after the puberty.
  • Now, color patterns are becoming visible.
  • After the frame is formed, it becomes more difficult. Objects cannot be seen yet.
  • One way is now to follow the colors. You find pieces which fit.
  • But then there are long pauses to place the next piece. Isn’t this very often the case in life?
  • You are blocked; you hold a piece in the hand which you are convinced that it should fit here.
  • But it doesn’t. The temptation is great to get a hammer to force the piece into the place you believe it should be.
    In real life, such situations are well known.
  • In this case, you need a time-out. In a play-puzzle and in real life.
  • Now, the only thing that helps is to mix the remaining parts thoroughly. Pieces not seen before are now easily put in place.
  • That helps; you progress. The picture becomes clear and starts to make sense.
  • Is it the beautiful picture you want? In a puzzle, it will always be a beautiful one. Not so in real life,
  • The accurate picture you only see shortly before you die.
  • You have to accept it; you have no other choice. It is not possible to get something else than what the destiny you gave. You can't buy another one, and you can't exchange it.
  • And then you realize that every piece fell into the predestinate place. Even without violence.

Did you understand the parable?
