The Ultimate Society
We tend to equate success in a culture by how much scientific knowledge they have, how high their buildings are, how big their military is. In truth, however, the ultimate society, I believe, would be indistinguishable from Adam and Eve in the garden. They would be so connected with God and with one another that extravegant buildings and technological innovations would not suite them except for bare survival essentials such as medicine and defense. Other inventions would seem trivial to compare.
