From the very second this boy was born, he was special. He came out of the womb with his eyes open, and smiled.
He would spend many hours, even as a toddler, with his face turned to the sky. What was he thinking? Who was he talking with?
As he walked through the woods, the animals tolerated his presence. It was as though he belonged there.
He grew up a great calligraphy master and spiritual teacher, loved by all who knew him.
One day a space ship came and took him away. Earth had been the perfect incubation for learning all about humanity. The fate of the Universe depended upon other civilizations learning the way of peace, for the rest of the Universe was many times more savage than Earth.
