The City. Unlike the village where there's a high likelihood that the majority of the people know each other at least in passing, the city is something else entirely. The city is an agreement of disagreement. It's the recognition that a large collection of varied resources and skills has a wide range of possibilities. It's exciting. It's exhausting. It's dangerous. It's surprisingly cohesive. It's the source of moral decline. It's the source of innovative thinking and invention.
In short, the City is alive in a way other places are not. Some love the city. Some hate it. Some prefer the room to stretch their legs and not fight for everywhere square inch. Some prefer the excitement and diversity the city has to offer and feels growth from it. The City, in the end, is where the collision of thinking, culture, and behavior dance in an experiment that almost always yields something interesting.
