This is a different kind of knowledge.  This is everyone knowing TRUTH.  As
opposed to knowing actions, behaviors, opinions, etc of others.  The latter
is fairly possible in some kind of dystopian world.  The former is more of
a magic thought experiment kind of thing.

Sort of a nebulous concept anyway if it's not pared down.

In any case, I don't think knowing about everyone else's life is
necessarily good.  Too much information.

We should live in close-knit communes where children are raised jointly,
people make their own food and energy, and art and scientific innovation
are produced within.
