A sustainable community must be a community where everyone is happy, healthy, and successful. Only a community that is free from pollution, noise, and stress and which is designed as a holistic structure in harmony with Natural Law where individual life flows with the evolutionary stream of energy intelligence is really sustainable both for the environment and for the life of the individual. Such a city is essentially free from problems, crime, and suffering.
