Any view of Earth from Mars is at least 10 minutes after the fact since it takes light 10 minutes to travel the distance between Earth and Mars. Whenever we on Earth look at the night sky, we essentially see a quondam existance.

...a 3d computer model of Center City Philadelphia, and I see the opportunity to use this model to 're-construct' past Philadelphias. It would be interesting to re-build the Independence National Historic Park area in its various prior conditions.

I can still remember the first time I went "to do some CAD for fun in my spare time." It was Labor Day, 1983. By this time I had been employed as a CAD architect for just about four months. I mostly did contract documents, but I was also allowed to teach myself 3D modeling for like an hour a day. Outside of work, one of my interests then was the architecture of K.F. Schinkel. At the time it still wasn't clear to me how the staircase behind the columns of the Altes Museum worked, so I went to the office on Labor Day and started a model of the Altes Museum staircase.
Since June 1987 I've had my own CAD system at home, and in the last 21 years I have often done some CAD for fun in my spare time.
As far as the state of drawing in education, the main issue remains dexterity. Of course, if drawing by talking becomes a reality, then the main issue will be the gift of gab.

"Sorry, but I can't talk with you right now. I'm busy drawing the plans of my new house on the other line."

...there is abundant room for messiness and experimentation and discovery within CAD.

...forget about how things are studied in school and instead visit www.dezeen.com and you'll see innovative architect-designed houses everyday.
Anymore, it seems that nototiety in architecture is something that's demanded or paid for if not actually earned.

Perhaps "no professor will ever bring up a house published on dezeen.com" because that will undermine the hyperbolic cost of architectural education.
My mind just started to wander because I'm now imagining a bitingly ironic book entitled You Get What You Pay For.
