We have the words eupeptic and dyspeptic, but nobody seems to have worked through the topograhpy and culture of upepsia, an ideal realm to supercede notions of utopia. To duck into Liddell and Scott, under pepohn, the root verb, we find: 'cooked by the sun, ripe, mellow'; 'metaph. mostly as a term of endearment, kind, gentle' 'oh pepohn, my good friend.0' 'Gentle': doesn't that look like a good starting point for utopian planning?
