Utopia v Eden, just some jottings

Utopia: an organized area; made by people; dream for the future

Eden: natural, but a garden, not a wilderness; divine and pre-dating people; ultimate past

Places as expression of a concept, not a location. But still somewhere it would be possible to go?

Edit: Three days after I jotted these thoughts down, the Band on the Wall emailed an ad for Sarathy Korwar's gig, so I ended up watching the Utopia Is A Colonial Project music video. Again just some unfinished thoughts here: Is Utopia something imposed? Eden something taken away?

However, I want to investigate Utopia; I'm not sure a comparison to Eden, or Paradise, would be helpful, useful, or enlightening.
