A community with new self-sustaining technologies

Yesterday, we visited Auroville, a so-called city of the future. It was started by the spiritual leader of an Ashram in Pondichery known as "Mother" in the 1970's. It was designed to be a community in which new self-sustaining technologies would be developed and serve as a model for future communities. About 1500 people from 80 countries are currently in residence. From what I was able to determine from my visit, the city of the future will have bad roads and there will be many goats. There will also be a lot of butterflies. Pretty cool looking ones at that.
