* {{Arcology}}: The 3 km-tall "urban monads" in TheWorldInside that house 800,000 people each were inspired by Paolo Soleri's earliest elucidations of the concept.



* FreeLoveFuture: ''The World Inside'' is set in a huge skyscraper (Urban Monad or [[WeWillUseWikiWordsInTheFuture Urbmon]]), in which men are expected to go "night walking", wandering into other peoples' homes for sex, and it's unthinkably rude for a woman to refuse an advance. Silverberg goes into a bit of detail as to how such a society would produce unique sexual hangups of its own. One character is trying to make her husband jealous, which he points out is ridiculous. Meanwhile, she mocks him for sleeping with a woman because he's attracted to her brother--instead of sleeping with the brother.



* PopulationControl: Inverted in ''The World Inside''. In the year 2381, most of Earth's 75 billion people live in three-kilometer-high (9,000 feet) "urban monads", where they start their ''large'' families around ''puberty''. One man has four children. It is considered shamefully low, but his wife is infertile due to an accident during surgery. He is considering taking another.

* BrainUploading: In ''To Live Again'', the rich commonly back up their minds using Brain Uploading. No artificial hardware can run a recorded mind, though, so their hope of immortality is to be chosen to be downloaded into a living person's head to act as a kind of technological SpiritAdvisor. (A person may be chosen for their intelligence, creativity, or just because they've lived a very different life and can offer a fresh perspective.)
