And if that place was simply "whatever we think would work" they'd need to either explain EVERYTHING about the avatar world, or the series would make no sense. The parallels are necessary as a framework to make the show make sense to us viewers.
Dont get me wrong, I still like the show, its got other interesting characters, but Korra seems to have degraded from last season into a child with god powers, powers which are, as Kitsune said, slowly becoming irrelevant to modern day technology.

Mon-Kitsune wrote:I think that a big difference may be in that learning to bend by 4. Aang was still learning Airbending at 13 (he was about to go off and learn the next skill soon, but he still hadn't done it) And the conversations seemed to show that even THAT was a bit on the early side. Roku didn't go off to learn his other skills until he appeared to be in his late teens, if not early 20's. So all of them had childhoods where they were just kids, or at least were treated more or less the same as comparable kids. Korra on the other hand, by showing she could bend outside her nation by 4, more or less has had tangible proof she was the avatar since pretty much as far back as she can remember and has always been handled as such. When Korra says that being the Avatar is all she has ever wanted, I'm not sure if she has any frame of reference. She's always wanted to be the Avatar because she's never had any opportunity to really conceptualize herself as ANYTHING else.
