1. A. Body:
i. The paintings that Swan goes to look at on her own that she felt talked to her because she recognized the feelings in them and there was a saying she knew that she really connected with.
ii. Pauline, the implant that Swan has that can give her facts, keep what she has seen embedded, hold messages and also hide messages even from Swan.
i. I'm not 100% if this counts but to me I saw the map that Alex made that had spheres representing planets but the size was based off of different factors that Alex felt were important. I feel like this is falls under landscape as utopian world building because it's an outline for a better (in Alex's opinion) solar system for everyone to live in.
ii. The terrariums that Swan has built unique to each planet it was on.
C. Life As A Project:
i. The fact that both men and women can have children
ii. The sun walkers who made a life out of staying ahead of the day by traveling with a companion.
D. Community Collective:
i. At Wang's' station all of the people going into a small room for their own protection.
ii. All of the different planets having different types of lifestyles.
2. I do agree that climate change is a big part of the raw material of 2312 but I don't think capitalism is a huge part of it. Yes I do think that it plays some part in the raw material because we all can witness even now the bad effects that capitalism has globally. It could also be just the human need to adapt. If you consider the fact that right now we're looking into how to make Mars inhabitable so we can live there if Earth runs out of resources then that would be us adapting for a need. But in 2312 Earth is still habitable which means we didn't adapt to living on other planets as an urgent need, it was just because of our basic need to adapt kind of like how we adapted with technology. Not having technology was never a mater of life or death, yet we adapted and developed it then adapted the technology for our wants. That is why I think it could possibly be the raw material of 2312 if it's not the other two.
