Avatar metaphor

I was inspired by the quote from my last post: "We need to design environment where people are able to live, work, love, build, dream. We need to design it together as citizens of our own city. All social spaces must be socially constructed."

I remember the scene form Avatar where Jake was talking to the Tree. It's a powerful idea that all species are connected and it's possible to speak to the world itself and every live form in it.
These creatures design their own world together. It's one vibrant community. We can use modern technologies to design cities and social spaces this way. They could be interactive and bring people together. Social spaces and communications are glue for any community. And we have a lot of examples here.
