Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: There are a lot of good ideas in this little story: what would human beings do given plenty of space, food, etc. but with few or no deep questions left to solve.

Con: It's not a story. A few events happen to the narrator, who has two conversations with Mr. Rhazes, and that's it. There's no conflict--not even the internal, mental kind--nor any resolution.
