Well, sure. But "Paradise Syndrome" was seriously underthought originally. Why does Kirk ...
After Kirk disappears, why doesn't Spock almost immediately realize that he must be inside the obelisk? Spock stated earlier that he couldn't scan through the alloy into the obelisk, likely the only place on the planet surface he couldn't scan.

a minuscule community of people
Kirk asked Spock for the "nearest concentration of life forms," suggesting perhaps that there were other concentrations. Life forms in Trek-speak means intelligent beings. If the transplanted populace had been on the planet for multiple centuries (or millenniums) then there would have been more than those in the one nearest community.
