That was an interesting show indeed....SmartyC, thanks for reminding me! I believe that Utopia simply doesn't exist in our physical world. It's not possible for mankind to shape his own destiny perfectly (much less being able to keep it that way...)

Personally,I would like to be happy all the time....that would be kinda cool to me,. But I do agree that it's not possible - in the world that we live in.

Science does however help us make life a little more understandable, and a little more manageable (eg. thanks to the many inventions such as electricity). But some people say that there are indeed many things beyond the reach of science - ie: they cannot be explained adequately through scientific concepts. And then, there are problems that science doesn't seem to be able to solve... Food for thought.
