    Default What is your fantasy reality?

    As in almost all my threads, the title says it all. Highly efficient I am.

    However there is a catch, which was the reason I started this in the Arts and Entertainment forum -

    One can only choose from a published, well known novel, TV-show or movie.

    So what is it? Your fantasy reality? And try to explain why.

    Edit - One reason for the question is, if one manages to name a fantasy reality it probably means the novel/TV-show/movie is worth being curious at.

    Mine is definitely in the United Federation of Planets of the Star Trek Universe.

    Yes it has its wars but the people live in a non-materialistic, tolerant, nonjudgmental, science based, non-racial, non-religious society with equal opportunities to everyone.

    I would like to highlight on the non-materialistic, tolerant aspects of it mostly.

    It had reached such a state of advance science and non-religion people don't have to be tolerant, because racial and religious issues do not exist.

    I don't quite gather how anything I say could be interpreted as 'cute'. Except if meant in an demeaning way, in which case I will remind you that my instinctual wing is 8. you will die.

    Okey. I'll play. mmhh. no im drawing a blank.
    Firefly?

    I like this question.

    Mmm, mine would be something expansive, stylised, futuristic but also retro, full of challenging possibilities and heady philosophy being directly played out in daily life and politics. The world of Aeon Flux appeals to me for that reason, and I'd pick that first. (Yeah, pretty fucked world, but it'd be fun.)

    For something a little less abstract, but still aesthetically pleasing, the broader world of Firefly also has a lot of appeal.

    If I had to pick something less urban, and more rustic, it'd be the Harvest Moon universe. And if it had to be particularly old-school or fantasy, definitely the Zelda universe, especially at the time of Ocarina of Time.

    Ah thank you. Firefly is worth watching then I guess. A few times I've heard that it is interesting.

    Sadly I haven't heard of any of those. I shall look in to them. Thank you for your contribution. I relate with the highlighted.

    Again Firefly.

    The one I think is ideal would be the Nox from Stargate. They live in nature and have advanced technology that they use in passive/defensive ways to protect themselves from others and live sustainably on their planet. Another I like is the Minbari civilization from babylon 5 which is focused on attaining spiritual perfection. In reality neither would probably would not fit my personality though and I'd get bored eventually so in all actuality I'd probably be a member of a powerful, but chaos causing race like the Q from star trek or the Avatars from Andromeda. What I would aspire to become like is a Paradine though. I guess I think secluding yourself off from the world and creating your own pocket universe would be boring and not lead to any growth as you cycle through the same experiences again and again. I would want to interact with the world the way it is, not a "perfect" world and make it better through my actions. I think strife and conflict give value to existence by giving greater appreciation for good things.
    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.

    Mass Effect - It has everything; connection with other intelligent lifeforms, much more advanced technology, faster than light-speed travel to anywhere in the galaxy...

    Harry Potter - I don't know, something always captivated me about this land when I was reading the books. I'd imagine being able to use magic and playing Quidditch would be brilliant. I'm taking it for granted that I'd actually be a wizard, and not a muggle, of course.

    Pokemon - Call me childish, but it'd be great. It's almost the complete opposite of the real world, in the sense that it isn't dysfunctional, everything works out for the best, almost everyone is nice to each other etc, and the only criminals are some petty teams that get stopped by 10 year old kids.

    And for the opposite, it would be a nightmare to live in Rapture, the world of BioShock. Drugged up maniacs from plasmids (and probably addicted to them myself), isolated in the depths of the ocean with no way to escape and crumbling under its own weight with an ongoing civil war.
