As much as a 'futurist' that I am, I'm concerned that the technology that will take us into the 'new frontier' may overtake the ecological enlightenment of human beings, and we carry with us our trashing habits into the pristine, sterile environment of Space.

I designed the "Baraka House" 3 years ago as my 'Dream House'. It's a 45 foot square, four level house (including basement) consisting of 6,090 square feet. Two bedroom suites are on the second floor, and a 15 square foot studio apartment is on the third level. The basic construction materials of the house is concrete, steel, polished granite, and tempered glass. To read more about this house, see my blog Future Tek.

The Visitor, Renfo Ademeit, is from the Alpha Centauri star system, the nearest star to the Sun, at a distance of 4.4 light years (1 light year is 6 twillion miles). Thusly, it took him roughly 4.4 years (26.4 twillion miles), at light speed, to reach Earth. The first three years of his journey was spent in hyper-suspended animation, to preserve ship's life support systems, and the attendant boredom such a relatively long journey would engender. He travels to Earth with an important message, and a gift that will transform Humankind.
