I think it is possible to create a Utopia on Earth with application of technology and a little tolerance for our baser instincts.
Genetically engineered tree's should do the trick once the technology becomes available;
Large current tree species could be engineered to grow extensive root structures, the trunk is reduced to just above ground level, and altered to grow
out widely at its base, then curve up, and finally back in again, tracing a shape similar to a squashed onion (sorry no cubes!).
The "trunk" then grows up to end in extensive foliage sheltering the house below.
At a more intricate level the tree is designed to produce the required amount and timing of fruit, genetweaked to provide the neccesary basic vitamins
etc, and the internal capillarys route water to large internal bladders on its way up to the canopy.
Each house then provides shelter,food and water, and our ecosystem provides air - all that is required for utopia. They may require minimal
The desired utopia is then created freely based on the needs and desires of our species, be it luxurys based capitalism, socialist societys,
tribalism, technology based etc. and we would be free to indulge in what we wish be it war and conquest or whatever etc etc.
