The day we make first contact (the scientific statement for when we acknowledge or are acknowledged by another "intelligence formed on another world), we all become brothers, we all become sisters, humanity becomes 1 family.. this is a lot of what inspired me to begin and continue to write "The New World" literary series. What happens after, this is what fascinates me. Social science says, it starts as me against my brother, then me and my brother against my cousin, and then me, my brother and my cousin against other.. if the aliens are sufficiently superior and benevolent okay we come together and learn at their feet, but if t...
The president is conferenced in as a 3 dimensional
projection as realistic to the eye as if she was standing in the
room, she was seen only, not felt as it is the year 2,111's
secure form of standard communication, on the moon

closer than the earth is to the sun, and a year is about 2 earth
weeks. The weather only drops 10-15 degrees Celsius for winter,

the last century Los Angeles, except with industrialization
being only 20 earth years old the air is so breathable,
something like Aspen, that the climate is almost a heaven on
earth type of experience, although "they" take it for gra...
February 11, 2,111, August Matthews a direct descendant of Nelson Mandela is a brilliant leading astrophysicist heading the search for extra terrestrial intelligence as well as earth like habitable worlds now a joint field as the scientific consensus is that this is the only solution for humanity. The 3 dimensional display at the heart of his workstation begins emanating what appears to be a heartbeat like pulse, August's hands move through the air tracing a figure eight shape and the image
spins 180 degrees, tilting his head to the side he makes another hand motion...
