The Caribbean is not the only place where ‘nothing matters’ and people can ‘get away from it all’. It is just the best known.
People arrive in ‘Paradise’ and do what pleases them.
The sense of unreality matcheso that on a Holodeck. Visitors believe that nothing matters. They one can do or say or be what they want, and then, ‘Computer, End Program”.
It might surprise visitors to the Caribbean that their feelings and actions are common.
Sure there are families which come to enjoy the sun and sea and don’t get lost in the holodeck. There are those who come for a business purpose so don’t notice much else.
But many foreigners arrive on the ‘Holodeck’ and live three weeks in fantasy.
