Chapter 1

In the year 2019, Earth suffered the worst cataclysm in modern, recorded history. A small meteor, known as TS-723, struck the Pacific Ocean in-between the Hawaiian Islands and the western coastline of the United States. The energy generated from the small, celestial object sent a 400 foot tall Tsunami wave in multiple directions which affected virtually every major landmass on Earth.

The shockwave that was generated from the object’s impact with the ocean water caused a massive electromagnetic pulse to form which proceeded to spread out across the entire planet at the incomprehensible speed of several thousands miles per hour. It fried, cooked and melted every electronic component imaginable, and set off a myriad of inland explosions that matched the intensity of hundreds of nuclear warheads being detonated simultaneously.

In a span of several hours, the world’s major cities had been dealt a deadly blow and the global population had been reduced by over fifty percent. The planet’s technological capabilities became virtually nonexistent.

The United States, China, Russia and several other traditional super powers, that had previously ruled the world, were reduced in strength and status to that of a third-world country.

For almost three years, the most advanced forms of communication were strictly limited to very rudimentary equipment systems. Shortwave radios, portable phone kits, walkie-talkies, and very basic computer systems were eventually manufactured and distributed to locations that had been resettled and designated to be the new cities of the post cataclysmic world.

By the year 2044, the ingenuity of mankind had blossomed, once again, across the entire planet. The new Earth featured a civilization that was fast becoming as technologically advanced as the one that had been vaporized just twenty-five years earlier.

Although the new Earth resembled the old one from a technological perspective, it was very different in many ways. New Earth’s governmental design was based on a global construct instead of the traditional model of sovereign countries that had been used on the planet for as long as modern history had recorded. The older format of governmental regulation, that was predicated on independent territories attempting to get along with one another, had been outlawed by global citizens. A new world government had been elected and was located at the planet’s South Pole.

With the advent of a new global government, many of humanity’s past mistakes had been averted in the post cataclysmic world.

War, which had been such a major part of old Earth, had been outlawed by the New World Government along with the existence of military installations and armies.

By the year 2089, most of the planet’s younger people didn’t remember the great catastrophe of 2019. They only learned about the tragedy through public schools and by watching television documentaries that discussed how, in the old world, people from different territories would routinely wage war on one another and steal each other’s natural resources.

In retrospect, the great catastrophe of 2019 was commonly thought of, in the new world, as a great blessing. It became known to scholars as the cataclysm that saved planet Earth.


Chapter 2

In the year 2094, post cataclysmic Earth elected its fifth president, Roberto Hernando Chavez. President Chavez had been voted into office for a ten year term via the same election system that had been implemented and utilized in the new world since the year 2044. Chavez received the most popular votes of any previously elected president that had presided in the south polar office.

President Chavez was a favorite of the world community, and like all political candidates that achieved elected status in the new world, his ideas about running the government were extremely popular and resonated well with world citizens.

Modern politics had changed dramatically on post cataclysmic Earth. The elimination of political parties was one such change that was widely embraced by people around the world. It had been broadly determined by citizens that political parties, generally speaking, precluded a society from being able to elect free thinking leaders that were unencumbered and free from the influence of cronyism and other types of political, conflicts of interest.

In the new political system, politicians ran their campaigns on a more genuine platform and their political strategies were based solely on their own ideas and were not bound to a thematic paradigm supported by an entire party.

The World Government of post cataclysmic Earth worked as well as it did because the framers of the government set out to create a new constitution that was fair and balanced. Their goal, from the onset, was to ensure the world’s citizens a safe governing system that wouldn’t trample the rights of common people. The document they created was well authored and it had been built on ironclad principles that were kind and fair to all law abiding citizens.

From the very beginning, citizens living on post cataclysmic Earth made a collective decision to eliminate as much crime and corruption as possible. Criminal activities were no longer tolerated and those individuals that were found to be committing acts of behavior outside the laws of the land were sentenced to extremely harsh conditions.

In the new world, the global prisons were all built and maintained at the North Pole. There were no second chances for people that disregarded the law and there was a zero tolerance policy for any individuals that committed violent crimes such as rape and murder. Such individuals were systematically euthanized in an expedient manner.

By the year 2094, violent crimes throughout the world involved less than five percent of the global population. It was a statistic that had continued to decrease steadily, according to the World Police Force, over the past 20 years.

Never, in the history of modern Earth, had the planet’s inhabitants acted with more humanity towards fellow human beings. The principles and basic structure of the New World Government were working and the planet, for the first time ever, was truly a peaceful place.


Chapter 3

In 2097, something truly remarkable happened to the people living on post cataclysmic Earth. It was the 21 day of October when the event occurred and, like the great catastrophic happening of 2019, what transpired on this particular day would forever change the lives of almost every person within the global community.

President Chavez was in the middle of a meeting with his administrative staff when he was interrupted by the Senior Director of the World Space Agency. Chavez was escorted into a secure conference room that was detached and far removed from the more public locations within the Presidential Complex.

Robert Johnson, a medium built man with dark skin and a well manicured moustache entered the room carrying a black leather briefcase. Johnson was well dressed in an expensive dark blue suit and red tie. He closed the door to the conference room behind him and proceeded to walk over to Chavez and shook the President’s hand.

“Good afternoon, sir,” Johnson began. “We have a developing situation that I need to bring you up-to-date on.”

Chavez swallowed hard. He was almost afraid to ask what the director of the space agency had to report. He was praying that it wasn’t another meteor on a collision course with Earth. “What is it?” Chavez asked.

Johnson opened up the briefcase he’d been carrying and pulled out a stack of papers. He laid them out on the large, Maplewood conference table that occupied a good portion of the room. “Sir, we have achieved contact with an alien civilization.”

Chavez stared at the papers on the table. There were a number of lengthy reports, diagrams, and charts. Chavez noticed that one of the papers Johnson had placed on the conference table appeared to be a chart of a foreign looking solar system. His mind was racing in a thousand different directions. “Are you certain?” the commander in chief asked.

“We are 100 percent certain about the authenticity of the contact,” Johnson replied.

Chavez smiled briefly and shook his head in utter disbelief. “What do they want and are they friendly?” he wanted to know.

Johnson was very businesslike, a consummate professional. “It appears, sir, that they are not hostile and pose no immediate threat to the people of Earth. As for your question about what they want; they would, very much, like to speak with you.”

Chavez laughed nervously for a split second. “You’re kidding, aren’t you?” he asked the director.

Johnson nodded in the affirmative. “I am quite serious, Mr. President.”

“When and how do we do this?” Chavez wanted to know.

“Within the hour, sir. We’ll use a television linking system.”

“They can understand the World Language System?” Chavez asked.

“Yes, sir.”

“Where are these beings from?”

“A planet that is ten thousand light years from Earth.”

“Did you say, ten thousand light years?”

“I did, Mr. President. The name of their planet is Tresantaras.”

“Tresantaras,” Chavez said, repeating the name slowly. “How can we communicate through a television signal if they’re ten thousand light years away?”

“They have a high speed relay system on the moon which allows communications to take place instantaneously.”

“I see,” Chavez replied. “And who else knows about this?”

“The Director of Defense, the Director of Sky Shield, myself, and now you, Mr. President.”

“When did they initiate contact?” Chavez asked.

“Approximately nine hours ago, sir.”

President Chavez stood up straighter, took a deep breath and exhaled slowly. “Okay, Mr. Johnson, set up this meeting as soon as possible. I want to see what our extraterrestrial friends really want.”


Chapter 4

It was Monday, November 1, 2097 when President Chavez announced to the global community that an alien race of beings had contacted the World Government.

Citizens around the world had different reactions to Chavez’s press conference. Post cataclysmic Earth was still a venue that featured a population base that had a strong spiritual connection with several major religions. The largest organized belief system at the time, which had the greatest spiritual influence on the world, was Catholicism.

Vatican City, which existed in World Zone # 10, still considered itself an independent nation. It did not recognize the World Government’s reclassification of countries into federal zones. Because of this heated disagreement between the new government and the Papacy, Vatican City was eventually granted the right to maintain its independent status as the only remaining country in the world.

The World Government’s decision to eliminate countries and create federal zones on post cataclysmic Earth had more to do with the federalist’s beliefs that it was necessary to create and maintain a strong relationship between the new government and its citizens, than anything else. It was believed by World Government leaders that such a bond between citizens and its governing body would create a synergistic effect, and this would ultimately yield a more peaceful world.

Chavez, like his predecessors, was a big believer in the principle of synergy. He had stated, for the record, on many occasions that a world with independent countries was a world divided. Chavez believed that independent territories were inherently divisive and that the last thing the new world needed was different segments of the population working against one another. That model, according to the President, had been used on Earth for the longest time and lead to wars, bloodshed, and a completely dysfunctional planet.

Chavez’s career as a medical doctor, prior to entering politics, made him realize that an organism was only as strong as its physiology allowed it to be. He understood that the wellbeing and strength of human physiology was directly dependent on all the bodily organs working together for the common good of the larger being. It was when organs and systems followed their own agendas that cancers and other diseases developed.

President Chavez didn’t want sovereign countries to exist in the post cataclysmic world because he wanted global citizens to work for the common good of the entire planet. He wanted a world that would become stronger through time and completely free of any political cancers.

The Papacy, on the other hand, had written publicly, about their disdain and total lack of respect for the New World Government. The Pope, on more than one occasion had openly referred to Chavez as a direct threat to the Catholic Church.

After President Chavez went public with his announcement about the Tresantarians, the Catholic Church came out with a very strong statement of its own. The Papacy alluded to the fact that Chavez and the World Government had fabricated the story about the aliens in an effort to mislead and confuse followers of the church. According to Vatican officials, the New World Government wanted to destroy Christianity.

Vatican City maintained its rigid stance on the Tresantarian situation over the next several years. The Catholic Church routinely referenced traditional, biblical scriptures that supposedly proved God had only made one planet in the universe with life. The Papacy discounted any World Government claims that the alien culture was a real race of benevolent beings.


Chapter 5

In January 2098, The Tresantarian Civilization unveiled itself to the people of Earth by participating in a live broadcast on the World Television Network. The presentation lasted for only thirty minutes and marked the first time ever that the people of Earth listened to a message from sentient beings that resided on another world.

The speech was warm, informative, and a wakeup call to many that the universe was a lot more complex than had been previously understood by humanity.

The head of the Tresantarian Leadership Council addressed the global community using the World Language System that had been developed on post cataclysmic Earth shortly after the new government was elected and assumed control of the planet’s business affairs.

The World language System made it easy for everyone on the planet to understand communications coming from the World Government. In the past, language barriers had been a serious concern for the human race and were one of the many reasons that tensions, regularly, arose between sovereign territories.

The Tresantarians explained to the people of Earth that they had contacted human beings in the hope that the two civilizations could form a mutually beneficial relationship.

Once the message had been delivered, there were plenty of conversations, theories, and ideas, by the global community, about what the extraterrestrial civilization truly desired from human beings.

Many of the federal zones became pro Tresantarian while other locations, heavily influenced by the Papacy, maintained a more pessimistic attitude about the intentions of the aliens.

In the months that followed, the Tresantarian Leadership Council continued to reach out to the people of Earth by broadcasting a number of important messages that explained the civilization’s goals and aspirations concerning the global community. They also created a basic outline that detailed what they had hoped the Tresantarian and Human races might be able to accomplish together, in the immediate future.

Near the end of 2098, the Tresantarian Civilization invited ten thousand global citizens to move to the planet Tresantaras so that they could learn in-depth lessons about the new alien culture and help transfer Tresantarian technology back to the people of Earth. It was decided by President Chavez that the ten thousand lucky space travelers would be chosen through a world lottery system.


Chapter 6

Everything had happened so damn fast that he didn’t have much of a chance to think about the significance of his decision. When the opportunity originally presented itself, he reflexively agreed to be a participant. In retrospect, he would have liked to have had a chance to speak with some of the project’s representatives regarding their overall goals and expectations.

But after each drawing, the invitations were thrown on the table quickly, so to speak. None of the candidates were permitted a lengthy period of time to consider the once in a lifetime experience that awaited them. And he knew there were plenty of people that would be champing at the bit to take his place.

He sat at the small, yellow kitchen table staring at the copy of the lengthy agreement he’d signed less than six hours ago. It was a done deal. He was in the program. There was no need for him to continuously rehash, in his mind, what had already been legally executed on paper and finalized in the eyes of the law.

Tresantaras! He was really going there along with 9,999 other lucky people.

During his lifetime, David Hutchins had entered the six ball lottery many times. But he’d never won much to write home about. In fact, he always considered himself one of the unluckiest players in existence. Many of his friends had won smaller prizes. In all the years he’d bought lotto tickets, David had only won a few hundred dollars.

But this time around his luck had changed drastically. He’d won the biggest lottery game ever conducted in the world. The prize wasn’t a monetary award for him. There was money involved, but that was being paid out to his ex-wife, Marie and his adopted daughter, Annie. Annie was Marie’s biological child from a previous marriage before she’d met David.

The money that had been earmarked for Marie and Annie would help support them, for several years. In actuality, it was a long term severance package designed to replace the loss of income they would endure as a result of David’s absence from his current job as a postal worker.

In his complicated and ugly divorce settlement, David was responsible for both alimony and child support until Annie was 18 years old. She was currently 15. That meant the lottery commission would have to take care of David’s legal responsibilities, to financially provide for Marie and Annie, for the next three years.

Each of the ten thousand individuals that had won a seat to Tresantaras would have a similar compensation package offered to eligible family members. In some cases, very large amounts of money were being paid out by the lottery commission. It was a pretty good deal, financially speaking, for many people. Of course the emotional factors involved were difficult to measure. The permanent separation from loved ones, in certain cases, was too difficult for quite a few of the lotto winners.

The winners that had voluntarily opted out of claiming their prizes, for various reasons, were replaced by new players that had been selected from subsequent lottery drawings. The ongoing process of winners opting out followed by subsequent drawings went on for several months until the ten thousand seats to Tresantaras had eventually been filled with people like David that had signed an official agreement of commitment.

David’s lotto number had also been selected in a subsequent drawing. He recalled, as he sat down looking over the signed contract in front of him, how the lottery contest had quickly become the talk of the entire planet after it was first announced, two years earlier.

David had only bought a dozen chances in the big game. Many of his friends and coworkers had purchased hundreds of tickets. Each ticket had only cost him five World Dollars. He never expected to win a seat to Tresantaras, but the idea of winning, and escaping from his real life troubles, kept him happy and he reasoned that the fantasy, itself, was worth the sixty bucks. Entering the lottery actually gave him something to look forward to. That “something” had previously been missing in his life for a long time. At the time he’d purchased the tickets, David’s life had been coming apart at the seams. He’d been trapped in a job he despised and his marriage of seven years had long since ended.

After he purchased the lotto tickets, David used to look forward to coming home from the postal service to watch the latest news updates about the lottery, Tresantaras, and what a journey to the foreign planet would mean for the contestants as well as for the entire world.

It had been estimated, by the Global Census Services, that nearly three billion players entered the unique lottery for a chance to become one of ten thousand people to be selected to travel one way to Tresantaras. It was a chance to do something that no one from Earth had ever done before. Not even the World Space Program, or its professional staff of astronauts, had ever traveled to another planet, let alone one that was ten thousand light years away from Earth. David was now a part of this magnificent opportunity. He was about to become a modern pioneer within the field of deep space travel.


Chapter 7

David made himself penne pasta and mixed the noodles in marinara sauce and parmesan cheese. The dinner wasn’t very fancy, but he enjoyed it nonetheless. His days of sitting down, family style, with Marie and Annie had come to an end many years ago. Meals were now much less sophisticated and not at all formal occasions. David would usually eat breakfast, lunch and dinner on the run or out of a box. And the silverware, in his apartment, was used sparingly and always cleaned right after each meal and put back into the cupboard.

Today was an important date. David was scheduled to participate in a special webinar that was being presented exclusively for the lottery winners traveling to Tresantaras. It was scheduled to begin at 1300 hours Eastern Standard Time. Each passenger had been emailed a special website address along with a passport code to access the presentation.

David had already logged onto the special website through his laptop computer that was situated on the kitchen table. He shoved a forkful of penne noodles into his mouth while concentrating on the computer screen. It was a simple webpage that read:


The dark haired man, with patches of grey that were quite evident near his temples, looked at the code he’d copied from the email, and typed it into the shaded box that was situated in the middle of the webpage. He typed each key carefully making sure that he got the sequence of numbers and letters entered accurately:


David pressed the enter key and waited patiently as the computer screen showed a picture of an hour glass that repeatedly turned itself over. As the website went through the authentication process, David ate more penne noodles and sipped on some bottled water. Finally, the computer screen switched to a new webpage that was shaded in yellow and featured the unmistakable picture of the planet Tresantaras. The large globe, made up of the colors green, red, blue, and yellow, was spectacular to look at even on the website. After a few seconds, the words, “Welcome to your new home,” flashed across the screen.

David smiled and waited for the presentation to begin. There was a digital clock on the screen and it was slowly working its way down to the start of the webinar. There were only 3 minutes and 47 seconds remaining.

David’s cell phone rang. It momentarily broke his concentration from the laptop. He frowned as he eyed the device that was resting on the kitchen counter. He got up and took the call. He looked at the incoming number on the caller ID and immediately became annoyed.

“Hello, Marie.”

He listened to his ex-wife as she complained about a past due electronic transfer she hadn’t received from him.

“I sent the transmission like I always do,” he replied.

She was speaking incredibly fast and David was splitting his attention between her and the clock on the website that was getting closer to the start of the webinar.

“Marie, Marie,” he tried to interrupt her. He knew that once she got on a roll it was hard to stop the woman. “Marie, I have to go. I can’t…” She was still talking and showing no signs of slowing down. “Marie, God dammit, shut up for five seconds and listen to me!”

There was finally silence in David’s receiver. He tried to compose himself before he spoke again. “I have to participate in a webinar in less than two minutes. I cannot get into a major discussion with you about a transmission that I already sent out.”

She started up again, complaining about the payment.

“Jesus Christ, Marie, I’ll send you another God damn transmission. Give it a rest already.”

Marie was still talking over him and not listening as usual.

“Look, I have to go now. I’ll send you a new payment. I said I’ll send you a new payment. Bye, Marie. I’m hanging up. I will. I’ll transmit it today. Yes, today. Bye!” David ended the call and powered his phone off. He set the phone down on the counter and walked back over to the laptop. The webinar was beginning.

“Greetings from Tresantaras,” a pleasant sounding female voice began speaking. “It is with great joy and honor that we welcome each and every one of you to your new home.

“During the next three months we have a lot of information to explain to you. We want to be able to respond to all your questions and plan to do so. However, we ask that you be patient with the overall process we have designed to make your transformation to our world as pleasant and as easy as possible.

“Let me first say that many of the questions you have will, undoubtedly, be answered as we work our way through the various information webinars we have planned. In the unlikely event that we do not answer your questions during these informative sessions, we will gladly address such concerns long before you commence your journey to Tresantaras.

“As you already know, Tresantaras is a world that is over ten thousand light years away from your planet Earth. Using conventional Earth technology, it would be impossible for Humans to make such a trip to our world. There are, obviously, inherent problems associated with getting back and forth from our two worlds using rocket technology. Number one, the Human life span is relatively short when compared to a Tresantarian being. Number two, the distance between our two worlds is not practical for utilizing rocket, combustion engines.

“Luckily, neither of these concerns will come into play during your upcoming journey to Tresantaras. In a few moments I will explain, in greater detail, what I mean.

“All Tresantarians are immortal beings. The reasons for this are somewhat complicated to understand, but I will do my best to explain the differences between Human and Tresantarian physiology.

“To begin, let me preface my remarks by saying that Humans and Tresantarians are genetically related. We have had a direct connection to your species since its inception. We have also played a part, along with other civilizations, in the process of seeding Human beings. It is because of this relationship that we have always felt a sincere desire to interact with your world. This is not simply an act of charity on our part, although we consider ourselves a “service to others” species. We have a genuine, vested interest in your daily affairs. The success or failure of Human beings to evolve physically, spiritually, and emotionally has a direct effect on our own world. Although it is difficult to explain all of the details about why this is so, I can tell you that we are all connected and that how people on Earth act or react to cosmic circumstances definitely has an important effect on Tresantarians and the planet Tresantaras. The fact that our worlds are so distant from one another is irrelevant when it comes to discussing the genetic and soul connections that both our species share.

“In order to make a successful journey to Tresantaras, you will have to undergo a series of treatments that will alter your DNA. The changes to your DNA will not affect your basic personalities and, for the most part, you will not notice much of a difference, physically speaking. Although I do believe you will, over time, feel a bit lighter as you walk around in your new body.

“Tresantarians, unlike the people of Earth, are light beings. Our bodies are comprised of high energy wavelengths and operate at a much different frequency than humans that reside in physical bodies. The transformation you will undergo, in the next three months, will recalibrate your DNA and physical bodies into a different frequency. The change in your DNA will also modify your lifespan so that it is on par with immortal, Tresantarian beings. These are necessary changes that must be made in order for you to survive the long journey to our planet and also so you will be capable of acclimating to your new home.

“In relatively simple terms, this process will prepare your physical body to be able to survive in a foreign world. You should think of your body as a space suit and your soul as the person within that suit. We are not changing the person, just the space suit the person is wearing. The space suit you have now is appropriate for living on Earth. The new space suit you will be changing into will be more appropriate for living on Tresantaras.

“The transformation process will be quite painless. In fact, you will not be able to feel much of anything. By the time you are ready to begin your journey to Tresantaras, the process will be well underway.

“You will receive a separate email, later today, that will explain the details regarding where you are to report for treatments. The daily sessions should take no longer than two hours per day. So you should plan your schedule accordingly.

“We will be having weekly webinar updates, each Saturday afternoon at 1300 hours. It is imperative you attend the webinar sessions at the scheduled time. Please bookmark this web address in your “favorites section” on your computer and keep handy the passport code you entered to gain admission to this presentation.

“Once again, please check your email within the next hour for an important document that will explain where to report for daily treatments that are to commence on Tuesday, February 28.

“We truly look forward to your arrival at Tresantaras. If we can be of further assistance, in the interim, please contact your personal ambassador at the contact address that will be provided in the incoming email communication. Have a pleasant day.”

The webinar presentation ended and the webpage changed back to the original website that contained the shaded box where David had entered the passport number.


Chapter 8

It was about two hours later, that same Saturday afternoon, when the email finally came through on David’s account.

He’d been anxious to open the file and had checked his email several times after the webinar ended. David clicked on the message and waited for the document to open:


Dear Mr. Hutchins,

It is with great pleasure that we welcome you to the planet Tresantaras. In order to comply with our travel requirements it will be necessary for you to attend daily treatment sessions at the Hamilton Outpatient Facility on 1611 Morgan Street. Please bring a bathing suit or a comfortable pair of shorts that you can change into. You will be required to lie in a machine that is very similar to a tanning bed. The approximate duration of the treatment will be two hours.


Your initial session is scheduled to commence on Tuesday, February 28 and will begin promptly at 1100 hours and will conclude at 1300 hours. You should print two copies of this email and retain one for your records. Please bring the other copy with you to the first scheduled session.


There is no food or drinking restrictions prior to each session. However, it is recommended that you do not engage in strenuous activities following a treatment session for at least ninety minutes.


If you have additional questions concerning your treatment protocols or your upcoming journey to Tresantaras, please do not hesitate to contact your personal ambassador at the following email:



The Transformation Team


Chapter 9

On Tuesday morning, the 28th day of February, David arrived at 1611 Morgan Street. It was a modern looking complex that appeared to have many different offices inside. The actual building was fourteen stories tall. David quickly found a business directory inside the main lobby. He noticed that the “Hamilton Outpatient Facility” was located on the sixth floor.

David took the elevator up six levels and was surprised to learn the entire sixth floor had been dedicated to the facility. There was a reception desk situated right in front of him as he exited the elevator. An attractive blonde woman, in her early twenties, was seated at the desk. A large company logo, which spelled out the words “Hamilton Outpatient Facility,” was visible on the wall directly behind the young woman.

“Good morning,” David said as he approached the receptionist.

She smiled, briefly acknowledging his presence while holding her hand up in the air to ask for his patience. “Yes. This Thursday at 1400 hours would be fine, Mr. Drake.” The receptionist was wearing a small head set and microphone so that she could speak with callers on the company’s phone system. “We’ll see you then, sir. Goodbye.” The young woman looked up at David and smiled again.

“Hello,” he said again. “I have an appointment this morning at 1100 hours.”

“Do you have a registration notice?” the receptionist asked.

David reached into the right front pocket of his denim jeans and produced a copy of the email notice that had been sent to him on Saturday afternoon. He handed the document to the receptionist.

“Thank you,” she said before glancing at the paper. She looked at him. “Oh, you’re one of the lottery winners!”

David smiled weakly and then looked around the room to see if anyone else was watching them. There was no one in the reception area. “Yes, I am,” he replied, trying to keep his voice down as he answered her.

“I’m sorry,” the girl said in a softer voice. She was, obviously, embarrassed she’d blurted out the comment. “That was completely unprofessional of me. I was just excited to meet someone that was actually involved in the Tresantaras Program. You’re the first one, you know?” she explained.

“The first one?” David asked.

“Yes. You’re the first one to visit us for treatments. We’re taking care of twelve patients at this location. It’s so exciting. The equipment was delivered here last week. They’re big machines. They look a bit like tanning booths.”

“I see,” David replied.

“You can take a seat in one of those chairs over there,” the girl said as she pointed to a cluster of red chairs in the far corner of the room. “It’ll be just a few minutes. I’ll let them know you’re here.”

David hesitated a moment before heading over to the waiting area where the chairs were located. Then he turned back around and faced the receptionist again. “What other treatments do you perform here?” he inquired.

The receptionist looked up again. “Excuse me?” she said softly.

“What other types of treatment does the Hamilton Outpatient Facility administer?”

“We administer a lot of outpatient services. We could be doing anything from laser hair replacement to laser vasectomies. Whatever the doctor orders, we, pretty much, deliver the goods.” The receptionist smiled and then returned her attention to some paperwork that was on her desktop.

David walked over to the chairs and picked up one of several digital magazines that had been placed on a coffee table in the middle of the waiting area. He selected a publication about professional sports and flipped through the electronic pages. He quickly found a story about baseball. The first expansion team in ten years was going to debut this spring. David wondered if they had professional baseball on Tresantaras. He thought about the prospect of not being able to watch sporting events anymore.

“Mr. Hutchins, you can come back now,” a woman’s voice interrupted his train of thought. He broke eye contact with the digital magazine and looked across the room at an attractive, brunette woman that was dressed in a white nurse’s uniform.

He placed the electronic magazine back on the coffee table and walked towards the nurse.

“I’m Mallory,” she said holding out her hand.

“David Hutchins,” he replied as he took hold of her hand to make her acquaintance.

“Did you remember to bring a bathing suit?” Mallory asked.

“I’m wearing one underneath my clothes,” he explained.

“Excellent,” she replied. “Please follow me to the treatment room.”

They walked down a long hallway that was well lighted by the glow of soft fluorescent bulbs. At the end of the hallway they entered a small room that contained three machines that resembled tanning booths.

“Mr. Hutchins, I’ll need you to strip down to your bathing suit. You can place your clothes on this small table,” she explained pointing to what appeared to look more like a metal shelf than a table. “I’ll return in a few minutes so that we can begin your treatment.”

After the nurse left the room, David quickly peeled off his clothes and neatly arranged them on the metal table. Then he made his way over to one of the machines that he would be getting into in just a few moments. He was curious about the contraption. He wondered who had constructed it and how they delivered the machine to the outpatient facility. He looked at the bottom of the middle bed and saw that it had the name TRYTON ELECTRONICS conspicuously listed on its metal base.

“Tryton Electronics?” he said softly to himself. He knew that Tryton Electronics was a World Company that had manufactured thousands of products throughout its long history.

“Tryton Electronics won the contract from the World Government to manufacture the beds,” Mallory said as she reentered the treatment room. “I’d imagine that it was a sizable contract and there was a lot of competition for the job.”

David wheeled around to face the nurse. “How did they know how to build the damn thing?” he asked.

“The Tresantarians engineered the device and sent the blue prints and specs to the World Government. Once the contract was awarded to Tryton Electronics, the specs were delivered to the engineers and the assembly process was started.”

“You think it’s safe?” he asked Mallory with a sardonic grin.

She walked over to the bed and pushed a button that slowly opened the top of the machine. “I’m sure everything will be fine, Mr. Hutchins.”

“Please call me David.”

“David, I’ll need you to position yourself in the bed, face up.”

He hoisted himself inside the long cylindrical tube and proceeded to make himself comfortable. “This isn’t too bad,” he assured her.

“The training team explained to me that you shouldn’t be in any discomfort once the process begins. If you feel like sleeping it’s perfectly okay.” Mallory handed him a pair of small goggles. “Wear these during the entire treatment and make sure you do not take them off. Your eyes could become damaged without the protective eyewear.”

David put on the goggles and watched, patiently, as the top of the bed slowly descended.


Chapter 10

“So let me get this straight, David,” Marie said. “You’re going to give up your life here, not to mention your career at the postal service to live on some alien world?”

“I think it’s really cool,” Annie chimed in. The fifteen year old was seated on a tan sofa inside Marie’s home. She’d been leafing through an electronic brochure that gave statistics and facts about the planet Tresantaras.

“Keep out of this, Annie,” Marie yelled at the teenager. She gave her a nasty look before returning her full attention to David.

“I hate the postal service, Marie. I’ve been telling you that for years but you never listen to me,” David replied.

“I’d bet a job like that would really suck,” Annie said as she continued to peruse through the brochure.

Marie gave her daughter another quick look that could have removed the paint from the wall. “How do you even know it will be safe there? Suppose you get to this planet and they make you a slave or something worse?”

David smiled at Marie and then began laughing. “Do you honestly think that an advanced civilization, like the Tresantarians, would waste the time and energy to create this program just to enslave ten thousand humans?”

“How the hell should I know what they’re planning? That’s the point of my argument, David. I don’t know what their intentions are, and either do you.”

“Marie, the World Government is onboard with the entire program. They’ve assured us that the Tresantarians only have the best of intentions for the participants and for the Earth.”

“And you believe everything that the World Government says?”

“I believe that the Tresantarians are genuine. I believe that they want to help our planet.”

“God, I wish I could go with David. This planet looks totally awesome,” Annie interrupted again.

“Shut up, Annie!” Marie warned her.

“Why do you treat her like a baby?” David said defending the young girl.

“Don’t worry about how I treat my daughter. Obviously, you don’t care about her or me. If you did, you wouldn’t be leaving us for a bunch of friggin aliens half way across the universe.”

“Listen, Marie, I am not leaving you without resources. Your financial needs are being taken care of. The lottery commission will pay you everything that I would have had to come up with. And I already told you that I am transferring all my assets to your accounts before I leave.”

“David, you think everything is always about money. There are other factors in play here. You have an obligation to us.”

David sat down on the sofa next to Annie. “Marie, we’re divorced and our relationship’s been over for a long time.”

Marie walked over towards him and got in his face. “What about your daughter? You adopted Annie. You made a commitment to her and now you’re walking away from that commitment.”

“You’ve got my permission to go, David,” Annie said smiling at him.

“Go to your room young lady,” Marie ordered Annie.

“But Mom, I…”

“Annie, so help me God, I am not going to ask you again.”

The young, brunette girl sprang up from the sofa and walked briskly down the hallway towards her room. After a few seconds, she slammed the bedroom door shut.

Marie frowned as she stared in the direction of the hallway. Then she slowly walked over towards the kitchen and grabbed a soft drink for her and David and proceeded to pour the refreshment into two tall goblets. She walked back towards David and handed him a goblet. “Tell me what the purpose of this program is. I don’t understand how ten thousand individuals leaving for another world will help people back on Earth. It’s not like you’re ever coming back. What in hell are we going to learn from your absence?”

David smiled and took a sip of the sparkling drink. “They’re giving the World Government technology and scientific advancements in medicine that will benefit human beings for years to come, Marie. The cure to incurable diseases will be available to you, Annie and anyone else that needs them. Free energy, for everybody, will soon become available. And it’s not like you’ll never hear or see me again. We’ll be making weekly communications to family members through special satellite transmissions. We’ll still be able to converse and see one another.

“Marie, this is an opportunity of a lifetime and it can allow me the chance to be able to contribute to our planet and civilization in a way that I never could if I stayed here.”

Marie smiled and took a sip of her refreshment. “I just think it’s God damn ironic that the best way for you to contribute to this lousy world is by having to leave it.”

“Life is definitely strange, Marie. You never know where the hell it’s going to lead you.”

“Yeah, that’s for sure,” she replied. The two of them touched goblets and finished off their drinks.


Chapter 11

It had been one month, exactly, since David had begun the series of required treatments at the Hamilton Outpatient Facility. Up until this point there was very little in the way of physical changes he’d noticed. His appetite had remained steady along with his weight, and nothing appeared out of the ordinary whenever he looked at himself in the mirror. Other than the fact he no longer had to report to work, he went on with his life as usual.

Over the years that David had been employed by the postal service, he’d accumulated a lot of sick time. He very rarely missed work. As a result of being relatively healthy, he built up a large inventory of paid sick time. The postal service informed him he could either have the value of the days he’d accumulated added to his monthly pay or he could stay home and continue to receive his regular salary. He elected option two.

David had made good use of his time away from work. He verified that all his business and personal affairs were in order. He was especially careful in making sure that Marie and Annie had complete, legal access to his worldly assets. Once everything had been straightened out with the attorneys and accountants, and he knew the two of them had been taken care of, he was able to finally relax.

David used the time off from the postal service as a paid vacation. He read four novels and downloaded several movies he’d been meaning to see before his journey to Tresantaras.

At 2100 hours, the president of the World Government, Roberto Chavez, was scheduled to address the entire planet to present updates on the newly established relations with the Tresantarians. David had invited Sarah Goddard and Peter Vance to his apartment for pizza and to listen to the telecast.

Sarah and Peter were lottery winners like David. They too were receiving treatments at the Hamilton Outpatient Facility. The threesome had met at a social gathering put together by the facility’s staff. They immediately connected with one another.

Peter Vance was a tall, almost gaunt looking, man with brown hair and big, bulging, brown eyes. He was in his early forties and had worked most of his life in the banking industry as a branch manager for the World Banking Association. He, like David, decided to walk away from his job as soon as he learned that he’d won a seat to Tresantaras.

Sarah Goddard was an attractive 38 year old divorcee that was extremely anxious to move to a new world. She’d had a tough life and marriage that ended two years earlier after she discovered her husband, at the time, in bed with her best friend. At least she thought Carrie Hendricks had been her best friend. But as it turned out, she’d been a lot closer to her ex-husband, Martin. Now that Sarah was headed to Tresantaras, she felt happy for the first time in a couple of years. She truly believed she finally had an opportunity to start her life over and possibly change everything for the better.

President Chavez addressed the entire planet on the World Communications Network at 2100 hours as previously advertised. He was a big, husky man with white hair and a healthy looking complexion. He had deep; penetrating, blue eyes that seemed to reached out from the television and grab the audience. They made it feel as if he was right there in the same room with you. David quickly grabbed the television remote and raised the volume of the telecast.

“Greetings, my fellow citizens; I’d like to thank you for taking precious time out of your lives to listen to this important update. It is with great pleasure and excitement that I speak to you about our new friends the Tresantarians.

“As you already know, a little over two years ago we were contacted by a benevolent race of beings that reside on a planet very far away from our own world. The Tresantarians live on a beautiful planet approximately ten thousand light years from Earth. Tresantaras, from what I have observed, seems like a special world that is inhabited by beings that have a special bond with the people of Earth.

“After engaging in formal discussions with the Tresantarian Leadership Council, two years ago, I became extremely impressed with the level of sincerity, help, and cooperation they, unselfishly, offered our civilization.

“Advances in medicine, energy, and scientific knowledge have always been the centerpiece of our strategic plan to better the world. In addition, I have always believed, from my earliest days as a world leader, that our collective goals and ambitions must include scientific breakthroughs that can help us to better our lives as well as the lives of our children.

“I am happy for the people of Earth because we finally have a future that is incredibly promising. Just two years ago things looked a lot less promising. But the future of our world has changed drastically in the past 24 months.

“The scientific capabilities we now possess, thanks to our Tresantarian space brothers, have already saved millions of lives and have allowed for the construction of advanced technologies that have made living on Earth easier and more enjoyable during the past two years.

“While being very generous, the Tresantarians have asked very little in return from the people of Earth. They have gone to great lengths to initiate contact with our civilization because they continue to believe our wellbeing, both now and in the future, is directly connected to the viability of their own world and species. As it was explained to me and other members of the World Government, we are genetically connected to the Tresantarians. They have further explained that their species is a mirror reflection of us in the future.

“Earlier this week I had a unique opportunity to take part in an important conference call with the Tresantarian Academy of Science and Research. The results of our meeting have brought about a completely new set of opportunities for our world and its citizens. The academy has put forth a brand new offer that is unprecedented.

“After consulting with some of the most brilliant scientific minds on Earth, I have been thoroughly convinced that it is in our best interest to cooperate fully with the Tresantarian civilization and to take full advantage of what these benevolent beings have offered to humanity.”

David briefly glanced over at Peter and Sarah. Their eyes were glued to the television screen. David usually hated watching telecasts from the World Government. But Chavez had his interest at the moment, and probably the entire world for that matter. He wondered what this new offer could be and more important how it would affect his upcoming journey to Tresantaras.


Chapter 12

David couldn’t believe what he’d heard. Sarah quickly shifted her body towards him.  She looked at David with confusion visible in her eyes. The pretty brunette was caught off guard by Chavez’s statement.

Peter stood up from one of three chairs David had positioned around the television. He was obviously concerned about the President’s announcement. “How can they change gears like this in the middle of our treatments?” he asked. “What does this mean for the lottery winners? And who, on this Godforsaken planet, wouldn’t take advantage of this?”

David thought hard, for a few seconds, about Peter’s last question before responding. “I can think of a lot of people that might want to pass on such an offer,” he finally said.

“You’d have to be a complete idiot to pass on a chance at immortality.”

“Will the two of you please keep it down? I want to hear what else he has to say,” Sarah complained.

Chavez was now in the process of going into greater detail about what the Tresantarians had proposed.

“…When the Academy first explained the details of the program and how this could benefit humanity, I was unsure how to react. Obviously, I’d never heard of anything like this before. But the benefits, in my opinion, outweigh any possible negative factors.

“It’s important that all our citizens realize the significance of what the Tresantarians have presented.

“Earth is regularly challenged by an expanding population base. We are also challenged by a lack of sustainable, natural resources. What the Tresantarian civilization has proposed will eliminate such challenges both now and in the future. In fact, these challenges will never be a problem for our planet again.

“I realize the prospect of living forever is a strange concept and that many citizens will have difficulty trying to relate to what has been proposed. Naturally, I had lots of questions that I wanted the Tresantarians to answer. It took a while, but I have received long, detailed explanations that have put my mind at ease and removed my initial concerns about the generous offer currently on the table.  Now that my questions have been thoroughly answered by the Tresantarian Academy of Science, I thought it prudent to explain the complete proposal and associated details in a public forum.

“One of the things I wanted to know was how our world would deal with a population base that would continue to expand. If people no longer died, it seemed quite logical to me that Earth would have a very serious population control problem and our resources and supplies would become more of a concern than they already are.

“The Academy explained to the World Science Panel and also to the World Medical Council that once immortality had been achieved, for human beings, our biological needs to consume food and water, as well as our needs to eliminate toxins and wastes, would become dormant. Similarly, our reproductive capabilities would also become temporarily suspended.

“If, as a society, we decided to suspend immortality, the normal biological tendencies, that we have always been familiar with, would become inherent within our species once again. In a nutshell, humanity would begin to age and die off as it did prior to accepting the Tresantarian’s offer.

“If we, collectively, agree to accept this gift and embrace immortality, there are many adjustments that will have to be made to our modern society. We must learn a completely different way to co-exist in a world that will look similar, but be very different in many ways.

“The lifestyles we currently experience on Earth would have to be altered dramatically. Education, careers, businesses, legal issues, spiritual practices, social issues, taxation policies, governmental structure, and so many other facets of our everyday lives would have to be significantly modified.

“The easiest way to accomplish what I am proposing would be to have our lottery winners travel to Tresantaras and learn, from the masters themselves, how to construct and develop a model society that can sustain an immortal race of beings. Only after our lottery pioneers have been taught everything necessary to help Earth transform itself into a new society would they return home to guide us through the most important transformation process this planet has ever known.

“Ladies and gentlemen of the Earth, the opportunity that has been presented to the human species is like nothing we have ever encountered before. Upon our acceptance of this gift, death will be suspended until we decide otherwise. People will no longer grow old and die from natural or unnatural causes. It will be impossible to leave this venue.

“There are many philosophical and spiritual questions that will be debated by citizens concerning the Tresantarian gift. Every person on this planet must give serious attention to such questions and decide, for themselves, if this is something they want to participate in.

“In one week we will hold a world vote that will determine if the citizens of Earth will accept or decline the Tresantarian offer of immortality. As always, we will decide this important issue like any other question. We will decide the referendum as a global community using a democratic process that affords each and every citizen an important voice in all worldly affairs.

“I hope every citizen will meditate and completely clear their minds before considering this most unusual gift. I anxiously await your decision next week. Have a pleasant day.”


Chapter 13

The following day, David met Peter and Sarah for drinks at a local pub on Thompson Street. It was a hole in the wall establishment but there seemed to be an unusually large crowd of patrons present for a Sunday afternoon. The three friends were seated at a small table directly in front of the bar.

Sipping suds was not something David did with regularity, but Peter and Sarah had convinced him to come along and listen to a few of the locals that were going to debate the pros and cons of accepting the “gift.” That’s what the Tresantarian’s proposal was now being referred to.

Father McAndrews, from St. Mary’s Catholic Church, was seated in a chair on a makeshift platform that had been constructed of plywood near the front of the establishment. Alongside the priest were the town’s sheriff and a city councilman.

After a few minutes of sitting around and waiting for something to happen, the sheriff, Bill Elliot, finally got the ball rolling, so to speak. “I’d just like to begin by going on the record and saying that this is a fantastic opportunity that cannot be passed up. The gift is something that can truly help to bring balance to a global community that lacks just that.”

Father McAndrews cut in abruptly interjecting his and the Catholic Church’s opposition to the Tresantarian offer. “It’s fundamentally wrong and against biblical principles for human beings to interfere with God’s laws. Our Lord would, certainly, not approve of a decision to make His people immortal beings. If the Creator wanted us to live indefinitely, He’d have designed life on Earth to operate in such a manner.

“The Vatican is extremely upset by the fact that the World Government is even considering such an unholy offer. The Pope has sent an official communication to President Chavez asking him to cancel next week’s vote and to reject the gift.”

A chorus of obscenities could be heard throughout the pub as people verbally voiced their displeasure with the clergyman’s statements.

“No one gives a rip about what the Pope or the Vatican says, McAndrews. You’re living in the Dark Ages,” a man from the back of the room yelled out.

Another fellow from the opposite side of the establishment threw out his two cents. “The Catholic Church can kiss my arse. You’re a member of the most corrupt organization in the world. Your Pope is afraid that he will lose the one thing he cannot afford to lose – power. The church has always feared losing control over the people. You’re just worried that this will be the case when the gift is accepted and embraced by the World Government.”

Father McAndrews stood up and yelled back at the man. “Sir, you will pay dearly for the blasphemy you utter. You are, obviously, not a God-fearing man and the Almighty will not tolerate such behavior from anyone at anytime. By making those comments you risk being condemned to hell for all of eternity.”

“You just don’t get it do you priest?” another man yelled out. “Once the gift is accepted, next week, the issue of punishment from the Almighty is a moot point. We are never going to die. We are never going to have to face the prospect of being sent to heaven or hell. We will no longer need the Catholic Church or any other formalized religions to guide us spiritually.”

“You’re dead wrong, sir,” Father McAndrews shouted back. “You will always need the Catholic Church. This gift is nothing more than a test. It’s a deceitful form of trickery to trap the citizens of the world and condemn them to an eternal life with Satan.”

“Hey, hey, calm down. I think we should maintain some sort of respect for Father McAndrews,” Harlan Andrews, the town’s lone councilman in attendance, yelled out. “I disagree with Father McAndrews and his position regarding the gift that’s on the table. I, like many of you, believe the Tresantarians are offering us something too good to be ignored. But I dislike the fact that so many people in this room are attacking a priest. He is a man of the cloth and should be respected.”

A woman seated at the bar turned around and shouted to the crowd. “It’s going to be accepted, you know.” She’d been reading an electronic news tablet. The woman held up the device and pointed to the instrument. “The latest polls show the referendum will pass in the 91% range. It’s not even close.”

The crowd inside the bar went crazy and people began to celebrate by buying drinks for one another.

Another man, that had already downed a few drinks too many, voiced his opinion. “Fer Christ’s sakes, jest this mornin the polls had the gif at 83. Sher looks like yer ole Pope’s not gonna git his wish on this one, McAndrews.”

The priest got up from his seat, disgusted, and quickly stepped down from the platform. “You can laugh and make fun of me all you want. Remember, it is not I that you need to fear. The wrath of God is nothing to joke about. Think carefully before you cast your vote for Satan’s gift. Because once you do, you won’t get a second chance.” Father McAndrews walked away from the platform and exited the bar as the people in the crowd continued to heckle the holy man.

“Hey Harlan,” yelled another patron that was seated beside David and his two friends. “Aren’t you going to chase after him? You being such an upstanding member of the church and everything; I’d think you’d want to go and comfort his holiness.”  The crowd let out a mighty roar in response to the man’s comments.

Harlan shrugged his shoulders and then looked towards the sheriff for some friendly advice.

The sheriff frowned for a second and then stepped forward to the front of the speaking platform. “Do you idiots want to have an intelligent discussion about the gift or would you prefer to get completely liquored up and so inebriated that I have to haul most of your backsides down to the lockup?”

“Oh don’t be such a damn stick in the mud, sheriff,” a young red haired woman yelled out. “McAndrews is so damn full of himself. We’re all tired of his self righteous, overbearing, religious bullshit. He basically deserved what he got.”

The sheriff spoke again. “Look, let’s calm down a bit and give some of the people in here, that are not completely wasted, a chance to address some important issues.”

“Who wants to speak?” the red haired woman asked the crowd. “Besides, what good is talking about any of this? It’s obviously a done deal according to the polls.”

“I’d like to say a few words,” David said as he stood up from his chair. Peter and Sarah quickly turned to look at their friend. They were shocked that he’d singled himself out from the rest of the crowd.

“Who the hell are you?” asked an overweight man that was leaning up against the side of the bar closest to the speaking platform.

David paused for a moment before answering in a very firm voice. “My name is David Hutchins and I’m one of the lottery winners that will be traveling to Tresantaras.”


Chapter 14

Everyone in the pub stopped speaking. There was complete silence and all eyes were fixed on David.

“And these are my two friends; they’re also lottery winners.” He pointed to Peter and Sarah.

Peter and Sarah looked like they wanted to crawl underneath the table.

“I came here this afternoon,” David began, “because I thought people were going to ask intelligent questions. So far I’ve heard nothing but insults, and a lot of stupid remarks being made by people that have had way too much alcohol to drink.

“I don’t mean to come across like the priest that just left, but isn’t anyone even the least bit concerned about some of the changes that are about to affect our lives and the lives of our loved ones?”

David walked up to the front of the room where the speaking platform had been constructed. After stepping onto the stage, he looked back at Peter and Sarah and motioned, with his hand, for them to join him. “Could you guys please come up here? After all, we’re the ones being prepped to visit Tresantaras so that we can eventually come back here to teach everyone else how to adapt and function in a new society.”

Sarah and Peter hesitated momentarily then slowly got up from their seats and walked over to the speaking platform.

The sheriff and Harlan Andrews brought up two additional chairs to the platform so that Peter and Sarah could sit down alongside David.

David began his interaction with the crowd by bringing up an interesting point. “One of the concerns I have has to do with how people will react to the drastic changes that will take place once we become beings that no longer consume or utilize material products.

“How will we feel about not buying food or being a consumer based civilization? We’re probably going to need a lot of therapy, don’t you think? Will you still embrace immortality when you’re unable to have a drink, sex, or a smoke?”

“It’ll be a hell of a lot cheaper to live,” a short woman from the back of the room yelled out.

“You make light of the gift right now. But how funny will it be when you have to live with the coming changes for the rest of eternity?” David replied. “When you are used to living a certain way, it’s got to be pretty damn hard to suddenly switch gears.”

“I’ve been reading some government downloads online,” one of the pub’s barmaids said. The pretty brunette placed several drinks she’d prepared on a tray. “According to that information, we’ll take on a more youthful looking appearance once the transition is complete. I could definitely get used to that.”

“I read all that stuff online too,” David said. “There’s no doubt that what the Tresantarians are offering is something very special. I know that there will be no more diseases. I understand people will maintain a very youthful looking appearance. It’s going to be nice not to ever get hungry or thirsty and to never have to rest or sleep. Like I said, it’s going to be a completely different way to exist.

“But you have to understand there, potentially, could be problems directly related to such a transition. Light beings that have a recent memory of being physical beings might suffer psychologically, and become completely miserable.”

“What about those of us that make a living in the service and products industry?” a brown haired waitress asked the patrons in the room. “What will we do after the transition? Nothing we produce or offer in the way of services will be in demand after we accept the gift.”

Peter raised his hand, like he was in a high school classroom, indicating his desire to contribute to the conversation. “I would first like to say that I’ve been in deep thought about all of this stuff since Chavez’s primetime announcement last evening. For the last month, the lottery winners have been taking daily treatments to prepare for life in a new world. Last night was the first time I ever heard anything about people on Earth living forever. There were never any communications, I’m aware of, that even mentioned the subject of immortality for humans.

“I’m very concerned about the sudden change in plans concerning our world. The three of us,” Peter said pointing to David and Sarah, “have been spending two hours a day in a machine that’s supposedly changing our DNA so that we can acclimate to a new world where the beings are immortal. Why is it that the people on this planet were never told about the gift of immortality prior to last night?

“I think we deserve some direct answers about why the Tresantarians have had a change of heart and are now offering us eternal life. I’m damn suspicious and uncomfortable about the entire situation.”

Sarah entered the conversation. “I think Peter has a valid point. What exactly are we signing up for here? Someone needs to ask this question. In fact, there are a number of important questions that should be addressed before any type of vote is conducted. How in hell can we vote on this issue without having access to all the facts?”

“People are too damn trusting,” Peter added. “They’ve already decided that they want to vote yes before understanding everything the offer entails.”

“Don’t you know all the polls are rigged?” the brown haired waitress said as she reached for some shot glasses from behind the bar area. “Electronic voting is the biggest fraud going. The World Government is just creating the illusion that we are voting for the gift. The bastards have already decided ‘yes’ for the entire planet.

“How can they come up with an accurate head count so fast?  What’s their sample size and margin of error? It’s ludicrous to believe anything Chavez or his cronies say.”

“Elaine, you’re just a crazy, damn conspiracy theorist,” said a male patron sitting at the bar. He was speaking to the brown haired waitress that had filled up another tray with drinks and was making her way back onto the pub’s floor. “You don’t trust anyone and everything is always tied to some kind of secret agenda in your world.”

“Don’t be such an ass,” the waitress fired back at the man from across the room. “If you want to sign up for a program without having all the facts, that’s your choice. As for me, I want to know what I’m in for. I’m not interested in just the very appealing highlights that Chavez has been advertising. I want to know the bad points too. There are always good and bad points in every situation. I want to know what they are.”

“I think we need to start an electronic petition and get it to the World Government as soon as possible,” David said. “We have to come up with a set of tough questions and force Chavez to respond to our concerns.”

“There’s not enough time for that,” Harlan Andrews interjected. “The vote is this coming Saturday.”

“We have to at least try,” Sarah fired back. “To sit here and remain silent is not an option.”


A few hours later, David, Peter, and Sarah went back to David’s place where they began composing questions they wanted the Tresantarians to answer. When the friends began working on the project, they realized it would be easier to submit the questions, via email, directly to the Tresantarians through the personal ambassadors they’d each been assigned.

Sarah reasoned that getting a response from Chavez’s official website, that routinely accepted questions from World Citizens about a variety of subjects, would be time consuming and most likely not very productive.

After working most of Sunday night, they finally produced a finished document that contained three power packed questions. They transmitted the document to David’s Ambassador early Monday morning. They believed the questions covered the major concerns that most people would naturally have regarding the gift. They didn’t know if and when the Tresantarians would reply, or if what they had submitted would have any real impact on the upcoming vote. Nevertheless, the process of thinking about the proposed changes to human physiology, psychology, and spirituality had been extremely productive for all of them. It had also turned into a healthy therapy session.


Chapter 15

The planet Tresantaras might have been ten thousand light years away from Earth, but the vast distance between the two worlds didn’t seem to affect the speed in which the Tresantarian Ambassador responded to the three questions David, Peter and Sarah had submitted.

On Tuesday afternoon David received an email from his personal ambassador with the subject line: Re: Questions Concerning Human Transition to State of Immortality

David immediately read the message and noticed there was a file attached to the communication. After opening the document, he called Peter and Sarah and asked them to meet him at his place as soon as possible.

By the time they arrived, David had finished reading the answers the ambassador had provided in response to the group’s questions. His anxieties had been alleviated.

Peter and Sarah each pulled up a chair alongside David’s computer and began studying the detailed reply.


Dear Mr. Hutchins:

I have now had an opportunity to review the list of questions you, Mr. Vance, and Ms. Goddard submitted. I have attempted to answer each question as best I can.


Please take the time to carefully review what I have written. If after reading the answers you still have additional questions, do not hesitate to contact me so that I may attempt to provide you and your friends with a resolution to your concerns.


Please understand that it is not my intention, nor is it the intention of the Tresantarian Leadership Council, to purposefully provide you or any other lottery winners with misleading information regarding our world, culture, physiology, or lifestyle.


It is my wish that the answers I have provided in this document will put your minds at ease.





QUESTION: Why has the Tresantarian Leadership Council suddenly offered the gift of immortality to the people of Earth?


ANSWER: It has always been our goal to share science and technology with connected civilizations. Depending on the civilization, and the civilization’s abilities to make use of specific information, we routinely offer and, at the same time, withhold certain gifts.


Civilizations can vary, greatly, from one another depending on their age, DNA construct, and dimensional position within the universe. While one set of gifts might be very helpful to one venue, they can be completely devastating to another. It is important that the givers of knowledge (The Tresantarians) assess a potential, recipient civilization adequately and be cognizant of whether or not a planet and its inhabitants will be capable of using a particular gift responsibly.


During our initial assessment of Earth, we were undecided as to whether we should offer the gift of immortality to human beings. Our leadership council seriously debated this question before finally deciding in favor of including the gift.


Because the council’s decision was pending for a period of time, we were unable to disclose any information about the subject of immortality until recently.


Immortality is a complex issue and it involves very careful implementation and counseling by the recipient civilization.


It would be very counterproductive to offer such a gift to certain worlds.


In reality, there is no death and all soul groups, that occupy physical bodies on various planets, regularly recycle/reincarnate into different bodies in order to experience very important, universal lessons. Said lessons provide invaluable opportunities for spiritual growth but can only be accomplished when the accompanying illusions of life and death are perceptible by the participants within the game.


It was our council’s decision, after reviewing your civilization, that the people of Earth have already gained maximum benefit from sequential and simultaneous incarnations and that the illusions of physical birth and death were no longer necessary to maximize the acquisition of universal knowledge.


QUESTION: Can the decision to accept or reject the gift of immortality be made on an individual basis?


ANSWER: Humanity’s decision to accept or decline the Tresantarian offer of immortality must be made, collectively, as an entire civilization. The reason for this requirement has to do with the extraordinary number of soul groupings that are interrelated. It would become quite cumbersome to manage the current system of sequential and simultaneous life expressions if some of the players elected immortality while connected companions elected to remain in a reality construct that featured sequential and simultaneous incarnations.


QUESTION: How difficult will it be for human beings to adapt to completely new lifestyles that are devoid of “normal” physical activities (consumption of food, water, air; sex, etc.) and possibly injurious to the emotional psyche of our species?


ANSWER: It is a completely natural process for all beings in the universe to be able to successfully transform back and forth between different densities. All life forms are rooted in lighter densities. In other words, human beings are light bodies (spiritual beings) first and physical beings second. The fact that many soul groups decide to experience a given reality construct in heavier densities, for the purpose of gaining new universal experiences, has little effect on their abilities to transform back to lighter densities at the termination point of a given physical destination.


Soul groups that wish to express themselves in lighter densities (as light beings) can choose to do so in any physical expression of their liking while residing on a heavier density planet. The majority of light beings that voluntarily choose a physical body expression, on a planet such as Earth, tend to do so by restoring their most recent physical expression into a more youthful appearing vessel.


If and when your species elects immortality, they will experience the best of physicality and be able to eliminate the nuisances associated with being trapped in a heavier density body. If light beings want to experience the human pleasures of food consumption, sexual intercourse, and breathing fresh air, these illusions will still be perceptible and available for their enjoyment.


There are many types of light beings in existence that regularly travel to different venues throughout the universe in order to perceive new experiences in varying densities. Humans would, potentially, have the same capabilities after fully acclimating to the offer of immortality currently on the table.  


Sarah looked at David; a broad smile was etched across her face.

“Pretty reassuring, wouldn’t you say?” David asked her.

“I’m happy with the response,” Sarah replied. “I think the ambassador’s answers should be translated into the World Language System and published so the entire global community can have access to the material.”

Peter picked himself up from the chair and grinned at David and Sarah. “This is fantastic. It explains, very clearly, what the world will have to look forward to. I’ll be honest; I don’t foresee too many people having a problem with the gift after reading this.”

David sat down at the computer and began stroking the keyboard.

“What are you writing?” Sarah asked.

Peter hunched over to look at the computer screen.

“I’m writing to Halevstren,” David replied. “I want him to send his answers to the World Government as soon as possible.”

“That’s a good idea,” Sarah said.

David continued tapping the computer keys. “If we can get this out on Chavez’s website or on some of the other official sites, I think it would help a lot of people to feel more comfortable about what’s taking place.”

“But, David, the polls already indicate the referendum’s going to pass in a landslide victory,” Peter explained. “Who are you trying to convince?”

“I think the polls are rigged and a lot of people are scared of the gift. We have a responsibility to get the truth out in the open. I want to help everybody have a clear picture of what’s happening here.”


Chapter 16

The polls were scheduled to close on Saturday evening at 1800 hours Universal World Time. David voted in favor of immortality, in the morning, and then decided to visit Marie and Annie at Marie’s place.

It had taken him less than five minutes to get into a full blown argument with her over the world vote. Marie had been adamant about voting against the gift. She was a devout Catholic and, naturally, sided with the church and the position they had taken.

David argued with his ex-wife for over an hour, but it did little good. When it came to issues that involved spirituality and the Christian religion, Marie wasn’t interested in being flexible. She’d never change her mind and go against the Vatican. It didn’t matter how long David argued with her.

“It’s downright sacrilegious,” she yelled at him.

“Says who,” he replied.

“The Pope!”

As was the case on many occasions when he visited Marie, David became irritated and ultimately overwhelmed by her inability to be reasonable. After realizing it was pointless to continue the argument, he left for Sarah’s house on Kendall Street.

When David arrived, Sarah was finishing a workout routine in her living room apartment. She was very health conscious and quite particular with keeping her body toned.

David had been attracted to her since the very first time they’d met and was excited about the fact she was a lottery winner and headed to Tresantaras.

Sarah found David attractive, too, but had given him fair warning that she wasn’t particularly interested in having a physical relationship with anyone. This had more to do with the fact she was preparing to travel off world, as a light being, than anything else.

When the issue of immortality was first introduced by the Tresantarians, Sarah realized that there would be no more opportunities for sexual relationships. She didn’t want to engage in a sexual encounter with David and then have that physical bond removed forever. It was better for her not to start anything of a physical nature with him.

As a future light being, Sarah was lead to believe that she would have to give up many Earthly pleasures indefinitely. Then they received the extremely encouraging news from the Tresantarian ambassador and Sarah had a sudden change of heart.

David had been taken by complete surprise when Sarah showed up, unannounced, at his place late Tuesday evening in the mood for physical contact. They’d made love several times that night and then again early the next morning. The intense extracurricular sessions continued throughout the week. They were really into one another, like a couple of college sweethearts.

“Tough workout,” David asked as his eyes scanned the two-piece, turquoise body suit she was wearing.

“Did you vote?” she asked.

David returned his thoughts to more earthly issues. “Early this morning; I wanted to get it out of the way before I got preoccupied with other things.”

Sarah waked over and gently rubbed up against his body. “How’d you vote?” she asked jokingly.

David immediately became aroused. “Against the referendum, of course,” he kidded her.

She walked to the other side of the room and closed the window blinds. “The hell you did,” she said, and proceeded to remove her top, exposing her breasts.

“I thought I’d treat you to lunch and we’d invite Peter over to my place, this evening, to watch the official results come in.”

Sarah smiled as she seductively peeled off the rest of her workout suit. She was standing in the living room completely naked and very wet. “I’d really prefer dessert before lunch,” she explained. Wearing only a smile, she very slowly made her way into the bedroom.

“Yes, I guess we could do that too,” David replied and then proceeded to follow after her.


Chapter 17

On Saturday evening David, Peter, and Sarah ate Chinese takeout at David’s place. At 1800 hours the electronic polls closed and voting on the referendum was officially suspended.

Like they always did, the World Television Network had exclusive rights to broadcast the voting results globally. It didn’t take very long for the news agency to report the results once the polls closed.

Roger Adams, the longtime network anchor was commenting on the referendum within the first five minutes of the telecast.

“With less than 1 percent of all global precincts reporting, we are ready to declare the question officially answered,” the broadcaster announced. The blonde haired, blue eyed man was dressed in a dark brown suit and gold tie. “We predict the global community has voted in favor of the referendum 83 percent to 17 percent. Humanity has made a statement by accepting the gift of immortality from the Tresantarian Leadership Council. This is a historic moment and one that will be remembered, very well, for a long time to come.

“Aaron, what do you make of the voting results and what have you heard from some of your contacts at the World Government Palace?”

The television screen split so that Roger Adams and field reporter, Aaron Sanders were both visible at the same time. Aaron was tightly bundled up in heavy, winter weather attire as he assumed a position directly outside the World Government Palace at the edge of the South Pole.

“Well, Roger, I have to tell you that World Government officials are not, officially, commenting at this time, however, I’ve had an opportunity to speak with a few people, on a condition of anonymity, and they explained to me that the president’s administration was expecting nothing less than the referendum to pass by a very wide margin.”

Roger began speaking again. “As you already know, Aaron, we’ve declared the question officially answered and project the referendum will pass 83 to 17 percent. Has anyone you’ve spoken to down there commented on the network’s official announcement?”

“Like I said, Roger, the official sources here are not making any statements yet regarding the results. I think the strategy of the Chavez Administration is to assume a conservative approach, at least for the time being. As more of the votes are tabulated and the percentages continue to hold, I think you’ll begin to hear and see more of a response from President Chavez and his administration.”

“That’s probably the case, Aaron,” Roger replied. The screen switched back to a normal presentation, showing only Roger Adams in the studio. “We’ll check back, periodically, with Aaron as the evening progresses or whenever an official announcement from President Chavez becomes eminent.

“Right now we see the percentages off a bit from before. With 7 percent of the votes being reported the referendum has a passing score of 81 percent.

“WTN has already declared that the referendum will pass at 83 percent. We base our projections on a number of exit poll surveys that have been conducted by Global Research Services.”

Peter got up from his chair and reached for some more Wonton soup and Chinese noodles. “This is a complete dog and pony show. It’s as if the entire telecast has been rehearsed and they’re just going through the motions.” He sat back down in his seat and drank some soup before continuing to speak. “Did you really expect the vote to go in another direction? I mean this thing was decided before they ever announced anything last week.”

“Well I think the answers that came back from the ambassador, that we were able to get posted on the government website, helped to calm a lot of people’s concerns,” Sarah interjected.

“No, I agree that the ambassador’s reply probably helped, Sarah,” Peter said. He sipped on some hot tea and then cleared his throat. “But you have to admit that these damn votes aren’t on the up and up. Do you really believe that the World Government is going to leave important decisions, like this, in the hands of everyday citizens?”

“No, I certainly don’t,” David chimed in. “It’s more about appearance than anything else. They have to make it look like there’s a process that affords everyone an opportunity to participate. Our leaders want to present the illusion of choice rather than actually giving us one.”

“I don’t agree with that,” Sarah shot back.

“Come on, Sarah, let’s be real here,” David responded. “How in hell can the World News declare the referendum decided, one way or another, with only one percent of the vote in? They knew the outcome before the telecast began. Peter’s right, this is a damn show.”

“I don’t understand the two of you knuckleheads,” Sarah said, her lips tightly pursed together. “You act as if you’re both pissed off that the referendum was approved. I thought that’s what we wanted? Am I missing something here? Did we not spend almost an entire evening writing up questions for the ambassador?”

David turned the volume down a bit on the television. He was smiling at Sarah and attempting to swallow a sizeable piece of egg roll at the same time. “I do,” he said and then paused momentarily before looking at Peter who was trying his best not to laugh. “We do! We all want it to pass, Sarah. That’s not the point of…”

“What’s the point, then?” Sarah interrupted him.

David raised his right hand and waved it in front of Sarah in an attempt to calm her down. He could tell she was annoyed. “The point is that the voting systems, the elections and general questions, have been rigged for years. It’s an exercise that’s more about giving people the belief that they’re engaged in a democratic process than anything else.”

“I disagree,” she said, obviously, agitated with his remarks.

“Well how about we just agree to disagree?” David smiled at her.

Sarah picked up some Chinese noodles and proceeded to fling them at him before breaking out into laughter. “You know, you can be a real jackass sometimes.”

Peter, who couldn’t contain himself any longer, laughed aloud at Sarah.

She quickly grabbed another handful of noodles and threw them at Peter. “You’re just as bad,” she said jokingly. “I’d expect that kind of behavior from David, not you.”

“Look!” David said excitedly. He was pointing towards the television. “Chavez is preparing to make an official statement.” He grabbed the television remote and quickly turned up the volume.


Chapter 18

It was a very confusing time on Earth after humanity chose eternal life over certain death. The global community had made its choice and decided to accept the Tresantarian gift of immortality. But there was still plenty of uncertainty, in the minds of many individuals, as to how and when human physiology would change.

One of the hot topics of conversation, after the passage of the referendum, had to do with the rights of terminally ill patients and their eligibility or lack thereof in regards to accepting the gift.

The question being debated by many people was whether or not such individuals would be allowed to take advantage of the extraterrestrial offering. Would these poor souls be granted a state of immortality and be restored to a healthier time in their lives or simply die off before the new system had been officially activated?

People believed they had a right to know when the benefits associated with the gift would commence. They also wanted to know whether the new state of immortality would include persons that had died right after the referendum had passed.

After several days, it was determined by the Tresantarian Leadership Council that the state of immortality, as it applied to human beings, became effective immediately upon passage of the global referendum. Those individuals that had died prior to the referendum passing were, unfortunately, not covered. Others, by a matter of minutes, had qualified for an eternity of protection.

The citizens that had died right after passage of the referendum were revived and later restored to the most flattering expressions of their prime years of life. Others, on the opposite side of the timeline, missed out on opportunities that were only possible to experience through eternity.

There were countless stories every evening on the World News about people that had nearly lost loved ones. These feel good documentaries showcased people that witnessed their friends and family members being resuscitated from the dead because the individuals in question were lucky enough to have died on the right side of the timeline period. This made them eligible for immortality. The news segments were commonplace, initially.

Other interviews focused on family members that had lost someone to death by just a few minutes, and in some cases by only a matter of seconds. Such stories were heart wrenching. In certain instances, the individuals under review had missed the timeline cutoff by less than two seconds. For the survivors, the gift had become nothing more than a cruel hoax.

The Tresantarians always remained objective when attempting to assess eligibility factors based on timeline considerations. These beings didn’t view life and death in the same way that humanity had. The Tresantarians maintained a deep understanding about what human birth and death really represented. Those representations were nothing more than illusions. They knew the people that had missed out on eligibility this time around would recycle into another venue. This knowledge helped the Tresantarians remain completely objective when assessing eligibility factors for other civilizations.


Chapter 19

There were many rumors floating around about how the gift would be applied to the human species. Conspiracy theories ran amok almost immediately after the referendum had passed.

One website, which had been traced back to the Catholic Church, put out an erroneous story about a supposed vaccine that was going to be forced on the entire global population. The propaganda had frightened large segments of people in many federal zones. The theory contended that the Tresantarians would attempt to deceive humanity by encouraging everyone to voluntarily accept a deadly, medicinal concoction that would wipe out all human life. The extraterrestrials would supposedly tell the world’s citizens that the change to immortality would have to come through the special vaccination process.

Another conspiracy theory, also suspiciously linked to followers of the church, purported that the Tresantarians were secretly terraforming the earth with bacteria and viruses that were naturally occurring on their own world. The devious process, in theory, was supposed to create an atmosphere on Earth that would support life for the alien culture so that they could invade the planet and proceed to kill off the human race.

In reality, the Tresantarians were able to affect change in the physiological construct of the human species by slightly altering the slope and structure of its unique DNA molecule. This was not done through a vaccine, but rather through an invisible radio frequency that was broadcast across the cosmos directly to the planet Earth.

The particular structure of human DNA allowed it to act as a radio receiver which was capable of reading frequencies in the universe that it efficiently translated into a very unique perception of reality. That perception of reality was depicted by the human mind as a five sense world, otherwise known as the illusions of life and death. This was, in reality, what human beings referred to as mortal life.

Once the Tresantarians directed the new frequencies towards humanity, the promised change of immortality began. Through a process that had been perfected by many creator civilizations beforehand, humankind had been instantly modified into a new species of light beings.

The greatest achievements that any civilization could ultimately produce were rooted in its creative libraries. Creativity was, in a sense, the conduit between all sentient beings and the Master Creator Forces that designed and operated all expressions of intelligence throughout a never ending series of dimensional frequencies.

The true Gods (Creators), which existed throughout the universe, were the countless civilizations that functioned in different dimensional constructs. In their infancy, they all learned basic lessons and eventually became capable of constructing their own civilizations.

The whole purpose of experiencing sequential and simultaneous incarnations (lifetimes) on a venue such as Earth was to learn as much as possible as a species. This was important for a number of reasons, but primarily so that the civilization could one day create its own civilizations and gain even more knowledge. It was a universal process that never ended. It was designed in this manner to ensure that civilizations could continuously educate themselves and hopefully create new civilizations that could live out additional experiences that would help garner new ways to understand and gain more knowledge.

The universe was absolutely nonjudgmental. It only cared about one thing – the acquisition of knowledge. The Tresantarian civilization was only one of an infinite number of creator races that had regularly contributed to the genesis of intelligent civilizations. Their special ability to create civilized worlds and later reconnect with them was developed over time. The process was important and was the only way they could expand an ever increasing knowledge base.

Another illusion that had existed on a five sense world was the illusion of time. On Earth, the passage of time had been a natural part of human, perceived reality. The human mind, and its compatible DNA, would read universal frequencies and transcribe them into a three dimensional, holographic form that provided the illusions of depth and physical matter. Traveling from point A to point B, or between two pieces of physical matter, required the illusion of time. Outside the artificially constructed illusion of a three dimensional reality, the time illusion was unnecessary. Outside the third dimensional illusion, experiences were always learned through simultaneous expression and not sequentially. Sequential experiences and lifetimes were only perceptible options in a three dimensional reality construct.

As the human race would soon learn, the Tresantarians were their real Gods. They were the creator race that seeded the planet, and projected the frequencies that depicted third dimensional reality. They were also the engineers that supplied the illusions of life, death, and time.

In reality, the Tresantarians didn’t provide human beings with the ability to be immortal beings. They merely changed the Human understanding of reality. All beings that expressed themselves in any reality construct were, in a sense, immortal beings regardless of whether they lived or died in an illusory world like third dimensional Earth.


Chapter 20

The Earth was a magnificent projection, created by the Tresantarian civilization, to help humanity, ultimately, learn important lessons. But because the planet, to a large extent, was an illusory world, it also provided an opportunity for other dimensional entities to take advantage of the Human race.

There were numerous interdimensional beings that shared the projection of Earth with Humans. Some of these civilizations were benevolent while others were parasitic and attempted to manipulate and harm the Tresantarian creation.

The abilities of several alien civilizations to directly influence the political happenings on Earth, throughout its history by hijacking its political leaders, were difficult for humanity to overcome. Not until the great catastrophe of 2019 did mankind clear the key hurdle and become a true “service to others” civilization.

The changes that the global community had made from that point forward demonstrated to the Tresantarians that humanity had, indeed, mastered the necessary lessons it had been prescribed.

The major religions of the world had been introduced repeatedly, through the illusion of time, by the alien, parasitic cultures. They created the religions of the world so that the Human race would never be able to reconnect with its true Creator, the Tresantarian civilization.

Religious dogma, and organized religions, in general, created the exact opposite effect of what they disingenuously attempted to project to the global population. Organized religion’s only goal was to impede Human, spiritual ascension and its connection to the Tresantarian civilization.


Chapter 21

Years later, the pioneers of deep space travel came back to earth in an effort to teach the global community the valuable lessons they learned from the Tresantarians.

People like David, Peter, and Sarah volunteered to come back to Earth because they had a strong desire to explain the truth about the Tresantarians and their remarkable history. It wasn’t until the return of the original lottery winners that the immortal light beings of planet Earth understood the remarkable connection they shared with their real Gods.

The Tresantarians were actually the simultaneous expression of humanity in a different frequency. They were Human beings in the future, which was a difficult concept to understand considering that time was gradually becoming less of a factor on a planet that had recently experienced a dimensional shift.

As the people of Earth continued to study and master the teachings of the Tresantarian civilization, they began to realize that sometime very soon they would also be creating their own world and civilization, and that someday they would attempt to reconnect with that creation. They knew this all too well because they finally understood that they were the Tresantarians, situated in heaven, looking at themselves in the future.

Mind Over Matter: The Placebo Effect

By Dr. John L. Reizer

Editor at


The human mind is extremely powerful. For the longest time scientists and doctors have known that the concept of mind over matter is nothing to joke about. Thousands of patients that have been diagnosed with serious health conditions have miraculously found their way back to good health just by thinking positively.

Many people have heard about a phenomenon known as the placebo effect. Simply written, the placebo effect occurs when a patient suffering from a disease process gets better after being given an inert substance that is perceived by the patient to be a real drug used to treat the condition in question. In certain situations a patient will respond to the sugar pill (placebo) being administered as if it were an active drug. In other words, the patient seems to have a change in his or her symptoms when no drug has been administered. The conclusion that has been made by scientists over the years is that the placebo effect demonstrates clear evidence that the mind can eliminate physical problems in the human body.

Some doctors also believe that many physical diseases that afflict patients can have their origins traced back to emotional disorders deeply embedded within the minds of certain people. While it is probably true that many diseases can be cured when the mind cultivates positive thoughts, it is also quite likely that a plethora of diseases can come to fruition when people harbor negative thought patterns for a prolonged period of time. The conclusion to this hypothesis is that a person can quite literally think themselves into a serious disease process.

Recently, I carried a tremendous amount of stress in my life. As a result of this situation, I developed many physical symptoms that I perceived as being a serious physical condition. I experienced heart palpitations, shortness of breath, stomach distress, and chest pains. I honestly believed that I was very ill and experiencing cardiovascular anomalies. I was so damn convinced that I was ill that I consulted a cardiologist and a few other medical specialists. After three months of doctor visits, tests, and lab profiles I learned that I will probably live for a very long time. There was absolutely nothing wrong with me from a physiological perspective. What I learned from my experience was that stress and anxiety are killers and if people can not adapt accordingly to stressful situations that come their way, it is very possible that a disease process will affect them down the road.

The mind listens to everything we say or think. This is why it is so important to try and fill our heads with positive thoughts. This is easier said than done in a world that is filled with countless media products that constantly broadcast negative content.

Walls Crumbling Around ‘Official 9/11 Story’ – Why?

By Walter Burien

Reply by WJB to an article from Global Research –

I truly wish all writers would bring up the following “glaring in your face” points in every 911 article. I bring the points up as a prior tenant of WTC1 from 1978 – 80, and the following three points are the 1,2,3 knock out punch per exposure towards true motive behind the event:

1. The WTC Towers were constructed with hundreds of tons of asbestos foam sprayed on the internal infrastructure as a fire retardant. Then asbestos for use in construction was then banned, whoops. In 1979 the WTC spent about 135 million dollars to build a special micro-particle air filtration system to capture asbestos particles as they broke down to keep exposure of the particles from the tenants.  They also commissioned in 1979 a report per the cost for demolition of the towers due to the asbestos. It came back with a cost of 8 billion dollars and the report noted that is was not accounting for the billions in law suits that would arise from people saying they were exposed to the asbestos as the towers were demolished. That problem they were sitting on was resolved on 911.

2. From almost completion of the towers it was a “no-fly” zone. Only commercial aircraft at a high altitude were allowed to fly over on a pr-designated flight path.  Any private plane that came to close, an intercept was launched from one of the three surrounding military bases. If the plane did not back off as instructed by the intercept, it could be taken down by the intercepts. Any commercial airplane that flew off course, did not respond, could be shot down with an order to do so from any one of the base commanders. Thousands of military sorties were run per threats, potential threats, or practice drills from the opening of the towers. Port Authority, the owners of the WTC complex bragged in their monthly tenant news letter that the response time from threat alert to military intercept in the air was less than four minutes. The only day in an exemplary history of protecting the towers for over 25-years from in the air threats, that an intercept was not launched from not just one reported threat in the air but four known threats in the air? That day was 911. On that day was the only day a firm stand-down order was given. When I saw that on 911, as a prior tenant, I knew with great certainty they were allowing this to happen.

3. The Port Authority starting in 1978, now knowing about the asbestos situation and in a separate matter that due to the massive flat surfaces of the towers, if a level 4 or 5 hurricane hit with sustained winds of 195 to 210 MPH hitting those flat surfaces, the towers could not withstand the massive millions of metric tons of directional wind force, and would go down. The tower’s ratings were designed to handle “gusts” up to 165 MPH. Port Authority in 1978 started diligently pushing to sell the WTC complex. No matter how hard they tried with any and all potential world buyers, no takers. Then in 1999 / 2000, in steps Larry Silverstein, a joint US and Israeli citizen, who negotiates a 99-year lease on the WTC complex with the total lease having a cost of 3.5 billion dollars and requiring “monthly” payments of somewhere around 100 million dollars monthly. The contract was signed for the lease and Silverstein effectively was now the new owner by lease of the WTC complex. The complex had no insurance for terrorism events, so one of the first things Silverstein did was put out a bid to the insurance companies for a policy coverage that included a “double indemnity” clause on the 3.5 billion dollar lease, so total coverage would be 7 billion dollars. It took several months for a group of insurance companies to come together to write the policy. When the final large insurance company that entered finalized the policy, in so many words, the ink was not even dry yet on the policy and down go the towers, and in goes Silverstein’s claim for payment under the policy of 7 billion dollars noting the double indemnity clause that there were “two” acts of terrorism. Poof, there goes the problem of the asbestos, flat surfaces of the towers in the event of a level 4+ hurricane, the excuse initiated and promoted for the largest military action in recent history, and by the way the dates and targets for that military action were planed in advance two-years prior to 911. The Iraqi “Shock and Awl” hit took place to the day as planned.

SUB NOTE: I think we all remember the TV News video shot they played over and over again in the first three days after 911 of a bunch of mid-eastern types noted as Arabs that were celebrating and popping bottles of champagne on a rooftop from Fort Lee, NJ overlooking the burning towers shortly after being hit. Clear exuberance was being shown due to the event by one and all on that rooftop as they toasted their champagne glasses. Well, the press immediately pulled that segment when it was learned that all on that rooftop celebrating were Israeli Nationals, celebrating due to the fact that they knew based on the event, the US Military would now start the planned event of decimating Israel’s presumed neighboring enemies in the middle east. I bet most Americans never knew what the reality was behind that video clip broadcast and then pulled. Additionally, the towers were designed where the center “steel core” would act as a guide for collapsing floors in the event of catastrophic failure. By design, the floors would pancake down around the center steel core protecting surrounding buildings but in no event would the center steel core fail. When I saw the center steel core “coming down” with the collapsing floors, there was no question in my mind that pr-placed demolitions on the center steel core was the only plausibility for that to happen. Even “if” as they said in the promoted story line heat from fires on the impacted floors caused the center steel core to fail, then the upper intact steel core would have toppled over, and the lower unaffected would have been left standing. NO QUESTION WHAT-SO-EVER demolition. The 3000 911-architects for accountability concur.

The top individuals controlling a large and corrupted government view the general populace as “useful idiots”. Their well planned “in advance” story line towards one of the most corrupt acts in history, 911, is designed specifically for the uninformed by the perpetrators intent, useful idiots to parrot.  Including the selected date and logo used: 911, a well know call for emergency action.

Will there ever be serious and consequential accountability levied on the inside players that pulled off 911 and the subsequent devastation that took place in its aftermath? I sure as hell hope so! The clock is ticking and so far those responsible have been laughing their asses off all the way down to the bank over the last decade without any or true consequence for their acts..

Please share my comments with one and all. If you have a website or news letter please publish.

PS: The “Poster Boy’s” name, Bin Laden was mentioned by CNN and other Media networks as the claimed perpetrator starting “22 minutes” into the event. Must be some very clairvoyant news reporters out there, but then in reality they mostly are just following a pr-drafted script given to them.

Keeping us Inside the Box

By Dr. John L. Reizer

Editor at

Did you ever happen to notice how major news networks treat subjects and story lines that tug and pull us away from our carefully manufactured understanding of the way things are supposed to work in the world? For example, there are hundreds, if not thousands, of UFO sightings every year. Despite all the reports of paranormal activities, the traditional media companies, writers and news people turn a blind eye or a deaf ear, in a lot of situations, to very credible witnesses. Can so many people in the world be wrong about aliens, UFOs and other strange happenings?

When the occasional story, challenging conventional mindset, makes its way on the evening news, it often seems as if the anchor person, delivering the day’s propaganda, feels obligated to apologize to viewers for broaching such subject matter. Or, even worse, some news people feel inclined to joke about the witnesses attached to a particular story, making them seem as if they’re all lunatics on leave from a local mental asylum.

On almost every television documentary I’ve ever watched, that attempted to seriously examine paranormal activities, there’s always some authority figure (skeptic) afforded an opportunity to get the last words on the topic. This individual, without exception, is the proverbial bull that’s about to enter a china shop. The china shop, of course, being the carefully constructed theories of reputable scientists and the commentary of selected eyewitnesses offering their understanding of said paranormal activities being scrutinized.

There’s a common pattern that can be easily identified in many of these documentaries. In the first 45 minutes of the program, viewers are encouraged to believe that the paranormal subject under consideration is plausible.  As the show progresses, pieces of evidence are reviewed and experts interviewed. One by one, scientists promote the idea that the paranormal event is under serious review. It’s all a cleverly plotted script. It’s also a psychological roller coaster, designed to build up the hype before the bull enters the china shop.

It’s the final 15 minutes of the presentation that is really important. In those 15 minutes, the skeptic methodically crushes everything that was presented in the beginning of the film. The skeptic, the paid shill, neatly pulls the entire viewing audience back to terra firma. At last, conventionality is restored and the documentary’s real objective is achieved. That objective, of course, is to maintain conventional thinking standards in the minds of all members of the viewing audience.

The purpose of the History Channel is not to teach history. Its agenda is to teach members of society the false history the powers that be have authorized. The tremendous influence of media products is often underestimated by individual citizens. When we watch television or read magazines, people are often unaware of the hypnotic effects these products can induce in our minds. We assume, incorrectly, that everything being broadcast on television is truthful information. You know the saying, “If it’s on television, it’s got to be true.” In reality, it’s most likely not true. Television programs are paid for by corporate sponsors and those companies have agendas. Some of them have dangerous agendas that affect our understanding of many important issues.

The producers of the mainstream media circus want us to believe that everything happening in the world does so in a conventional manner. They want to keep us inside the box. According to the corporate controlled media, everything is portrayed as being black and white with no shades of paranormal activity. Unfortunately, our poor understanding of what’s occurring in the world is a far cry from what is actually taking place on a daily basis.

What is the Right Religion?

By Dr. John Reizer

Editor at

I’ve studied anatomy and physiology and worked on human cadavers in college. It was a very humbling experience for me because I realized, early in my studies, the intelligent design of our bodies was so damn amazing that it’s quite unlikely we would ever be able to understand, fully, how human beings function.

If you ever had an opportunity to study the body, you already know how incredibly magnificent it is. The neurological circuitry alone is breathtaking. Organs, tissues and cells all functioning, simultaneously, for the common goal of maintaining a living being that has the ability to repair itself when it encounters physiological challenges; there should be little doubt, if any, in a person’s mind that we’re not walking around on this planet by accident. Something incredibly intelligent has designed human beings, animals, plant life, the earth, the universe as well as any other physical matter in existence.

A lot of my friends and acquaintances, at different times, have approached me wanting to know what my religious beliefs were and if I’d ever consider attending their church. Many of these individuals are very nice people and more important, good souls.

When I explain that I don’t follow/worship a particular deity or subscribe to a specific belief system and that organized religion is not something I desire to have in my life, my friends want to know why I am an atheist. Some of them even seem to work harder in their efforts to convert me to their way of spiritual reasoning.

It’s funny how people incorrectly assume a person is an atheist because he or she does not embrace an organized belief system. I am not an atheist! I believe there is an intelligent, creative force that I am forever linked to. In my opinion, all people are connected to the creative force of the universe. Because I choose not to personify the creator, in my mind, does not make me a less spiritual person than someone that attends a formal church service every week.

Sometimes people become down right nasty when they discover your spiritual beliefs are different than the majority of members within the surrounding community. In most situations I make a strong effort to keep such information private. I believe a person’s beliefs are a private matter. How I connect or communicate with whatever intelligence has designed us is my business. The last time I checked, there was no definitive proof any organized belief system had confirmed, one hundred percent, their perception of spiritual reality was correct.

Please understand that I am not writing this article to criticize any organized belief system. I definitely respect a person’s right to believe anything he or she desires.

Although I don’t personally agree with the common practice of worshipping named deities, because I feel doing so actually inhibits spiritual growth, I do believe I am a very spiritual person. In my opinion, worshipping something that is inherently a part of my physical and spiritual existence is counterproductive. Every living and non living thing on this planet, and in the collective universe, is an expression of universal intelligence.

The simple truth is that not every person is an atheist simply because he or she doesn’t embrace one of the socially accepted organized belief constructs. No person on this planet can state, with absolute certainty, what is the right religion! No matter how much we believe or disbelieve in something, it has no bearing whatsoever on the validity or invalidity of the concept or, in this situation, the religion in question.

Déjà vu: Been There Done That Before?

By Dr. John L. Reizer

Editor at

Did you ever have an unusual feeling after visiting a new place or experiencing a new event in your life that you had been there or done that before? Did you ever meet someone for the very first time and have a feeling that you had known the person from somewhere that you cannot quite recall? Actually, the feelings of familiarity with regards to certain events, experiences, and associations with specific people are a lot more common than the average person might realize. This condition that many people experience is known as déjà vu.

Do we really only live once on this mysterious planet for 80-90 years and then turn into dust never to be heard from again? Whatever grand intelligence designed and activated Earth and the life forms that inhabit our planet must have surely had a better plan in mind than that.

If you take a look at everything that has to do with nature, it is easy to spot a recurring theme. Things that are natural seem to recycle themselves over and over again. Nature is set up and designed to come full circle. The earth spins on its axis, revolves around the sun, and this causes the days, months, and years to come and go. It also causes the change in seasons. Life begins in the spring. It is followed by summer, fall, and winter. Then everything is repeated. Life is a great big circle that keeps repeating itself over and over again.

There are many people in the world that can recall past lifetimes. Some of these individuals can recall lifetimes with vivid details. They can remember where and when they have lived before. In certain cases individuals have remembered the street addresses where they resided in a previous life and they can identify family members and business associates.

The truth be told, it makes a lot of sense that the soul energy of living things can recycle into other living forms after their physical bodies die. Science teaches us that energy never disappears. It merely changes and transforms itself into other states of existence. It is this unknown ability of all living things to be able to live countless lifetimes that allows for our souls to have the chance to grow. Spiritual growth cannot be attained by living a singe lifetime. The soul energy attached to a human body needs the chance to experience many lifetimes so that it can mature and master life lessons that are more valuable to the soul as a collection of lifetimes rather than a singe lifetime.

How does one explain a young child that is borne into the world capable of playing a musical instrument with incredible precision? What about the cases where persons were placed under hypnosis and suddenly able to speak foreign languages that they had never previously mastered?

There are men and women that feel like they should be in bodies of the opposite sex. There are people walking this planet with unusual talents that they have possessed from a very young age. There are incredible artists that can paint pictures and yet they had no formal training to develop their talents. Look at the world around us and you will observe countless clues that demonstrate and point to the idea that reincarnation is not the exception but very much the rule.

Life is great!

By Dr. John L. Reizer

reizer3The funny thing about life is that it’s always an interesting ride. If you’re currently bored, happy or sad you shouldn’t get too caught up in those emotions. Life is swift and ever-changing. The perceptive illusion is that the people and things around us stay the same. The truth be told, nothing in this world is static. People flow in and out of our lives constantly. We’re always meeting new acquaintances, friends, and business contacts. The people we form various relationships with and mistakenly believe are so important to us today are in many instances insignificant factors in our lives a short time later.

Many relationships we encounter on this planet are important in that they contribute to the collective experiences we will use to grow spiritually in a particular lifetime. I believe we experience numerous lifetimes simultaneously and in some instances sequentially. Although the experiences we are blessed with can cause pain and happiness, they are, ultimately, only lessons to learn and grow from.

It’s sometimes easy to get caught up in the emotional excitement that is presented from discovering new concepts and new faces. Sometimes a person’s desire to want to help others can become so strong that it unfairly drains all of their energy and causes pain and suffering for the most important people in their life.

I recently learned a valuable lesson. The lesson taught me that the most important people in the world are the ones closest to me. The lesson also taught me that sometimes no matter how much you want to help another person; it should never come at the expense of the people that love you the most.

Life on Earth is great because there is no better classroom in the universe to acquire such knowledge and educate your soul.

All Living Things Express an Inborn Intelligence!

By Dr. John L. Reizer

Editor at


All living things have very unique abilities to be able to adapt to their ever-changing environments. If you think about this for a moment, you will soon realize how amazing life, on our little planet, really is.

Imagine, in your mind’s eye, an acorn landing in a field of grass. It becomes naturally embedded in the ground. It receives sunlight and rain and within a short period of time, it becomes a tiny sapling. As the years pass, the sapling will grow larger and eventually will mature into a massive, full grown oak tree that will begin to produce and drop its own acorns. The oak tree is able to survive the toughest elements that are featured in each of the changing seasons. It does all of this, on its own, without a brain. How can this be? The answer is that an acorn and an oak tree both contain an inner wisdom, an inborn intelligence, which allows it to grow and survive in its immediate environment. All living things have this inner wisdom that allows life to flourish. In traditional chiropractic, we refer to this inner wisdom as innate intelligence – the inborn wisdom that exists in all living organisms.

As people, we witness examples of innate intelligence on a regular basis. Think about how we eat and digest our food without consciously paying attention to the complex biochemical processes that are involved in accomplishing this task. The human physiology has to break down the food, absorb and assimilate the nutrients, and prepare the leftovers for elimination. We don’t have to sit in a room, after eating a large meal, and attempt to figure out the proper amount of chemicals that are necessary to successfully carryout this very important physiological process.

There are also many other examples of innate intelligence that we can observe on a daily basis. The ability of the human eye to adapt and change its point of focus on a given object, in just a few seconds, so that we are able to perceive the surrounding environment in a very clear and unobstructed manner is accomplished through innate intelligence. We don’t have to consciously think about calculating the different distances for various objects we encounter so that we can see things properly. The body inherently accomplishes this and other amazing feats twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.

The human immune system constantly attempts to keep us healthy by making biochemical adjustments, every few seconds, as we encounter regularly changing conditions in both our internal and external environments.

A viral or bacterial microbe that has, temporarily, imposed its will on a living being is no match for the immune system. The inborn intelligence of the body immediately begins to scan the foreign organism for weaknesses and then launches a plan of attack to disable or destroy the offending invader.

In many situations, bacterial and viral microbes are weakened and disabled through heat. The immune system recognizes this fact and begins to create an environment, a fever, which is conducive for returning the body back to a state of proper health. Very often, people make poor healthcare decisions and attempt to interfere with the innate decisions of human physiology. How many individuals do you know that have taken an aspirin, or another drug, in an attempt to lower a fever or to minimize some other annoying symptom? You probably know quite a few folks that have done this – maybe even you!

Just the other day, I was watching television and viewed a drug commercial about a product that was designed to break up mucus in the airway passages. This drug is an expectorant and it works by thinning out the mucus in the chest and other portions of the body. At first glance, this might seem like a good thing. After all, it produces the desired effect (relief) that a person suffering with congestion might want. But if we truly understood how smart the human body was, we would rarely interfere with what it is trying to accomplish.

In the case of thinning out mucus in our body, we have to first understand that the inborn intelligence in a human being has a good reason for doing the things it does. The body doesn’t create thick amounts of copious mucus just for the hell of it. In many situations, the body wants to conceal an active infection or sequester it from other body areas so that it won’t spread and do additional damage. After the immune system successfully destroys the threatening infection, it will reduce the thick mucus in the chest and allow the remnants to be coughed up and expelled. Keep in mind, this is allowed only after the infection has been neutralized.

The problem with taking the expectorant is that the product interferes with the immune system and allows the consolidated and sequestered infection to be released through the entire body while it is still active and dangerous. This is not a good thing even though it might temporarily give the person some minor relief from the annoying symptoms associated with congestion and an unproductive cough.

Most symptoms, associated with colds/influenza, and signs of disease are nothing more than intelligent attempts by the immune system to rid the body of harmful invaders. Unfortunately, the educated minds of most people, in society, have been programmed with misinformation when it comes to understanding issues regarding health and wellbeing. A lot of our understanding about health and disease has come directly from giant petrochemical corporations (drug companies) that have a vested interest in keeping you and I sick throughout our entire lives. The products that these companies produce do not cure people from disease. Instead, the products block, in a number of ways, the attempts of the immune system to fight off and cure problems that are challenging our overall health.

Millions of Americans are walking around the planet with a condition known as hypertension (elevated blood pressure). If you ask the average person about hypertension, they’ll explain to you that high blood pressure is a disease process. They will tell you this because this is what they have been taught by pharmaceutical companies and doctors that have been taught the same nonsense. This misinformation is repeatedly taught at medical schools, which utilize textbooks that have been written by scientists and employees that work for pharmaceutical companies. We are a society filled with repeaters. We keep repeating the same things over and over again without any understanding of what we are repeating!

Hypertension is not a disease! It is a physiological adaptive process which forces blood to reach areas of the body that are not getting adequate blood supplies. The inborn intelligence of the body automatically elevates blood pressure so that people won’t die from a stroke or a heart attack. Strokes and heart attacks are caused from an inadequate amount of blood to the brain or heart. They are not caused from blood pressure being too high. Very often, strokes and heart attacks will occur because the amount of blood, going to the heart and brain, is insufficient despite the body’s attempts to raise blood pressure.

The common protocol to treat patients suffering with hypertension is to place the individuals on medications that will prevent the body’s inborn intelligence from raising blood pressure. The drugs actually interfere with the nervous system (they disrupt communication between the brain and other portions of the body) so that the blood pressure cannot be elevated even though it really needs to be raised in order to get a sufficient amount of blood to vital organs and body tissues.

Years ago, a “normal” systolic blood pressure reading was widely accepted by the medical community as being 100 + your age. In other words, if you were 75 years old you should have had a systolic blood pressure reading of 175. If you were 40 years old you should have had a systolic blood pressure reading of 140. Systolic blood pressure is a measurement of the blood pressure when the heart is beating. The other measurement, the bottom number, is known as diastolic blood pressure and is a measurement of the blood pressure when the heart is relaxed. Under the old system, a person that was 80 years old would be considered to have a “normal” blood pressure if they produced a reading of 180/80. By today’s standards, the same individual would be classified as hypertensive and be prescribed anti-hypertensive medications.

Most medical organizations today agree that a “normal” blood pressure reading should be at 115/75. Anything above this level would be classified as hypertension. How convenient this change, in calculating a “normal” blood pressure, has been for the petrochemical corporations. Their profits originating from selling anti-hypertensive medicines have skyrocketed while people’s blood pressures have plummeted along with their health.

In all likelihood, the official organizations that conducted the so called “scientific studies” that led to the change in how “normal” blood pressures are calculated were, most likely, heavily influenced by the petrochemical corporations. By lowering “normal blood pressure values” it instantly placed millions of people into a hypertensive category and suggested they be placed on anti-hypertensive medications for the rest of their lives.

The important point that I want my readers to understand is that all living human beings have an inborn (innate) intelligence that constantly strives to keep them alive and well. This intelligence never sleeps, never take a day off from the job, and will be with them for as long as they are alive.

Your own innate intelligence always knows what’s best for your body, at any particular time of the day, and it is always operating through the very important pathway that keeps you healthy – the human nervous system!

The British Medical Journal: Mammograms are Useless and Harmful!

By Dr. John L. Reizer

Editor at


A new study that was recently published in The British Medical Journal shows that there is absolutely no medical benefit whatsoever for women between the ages of 41-59 considering mammography for the routine screening of breast cancers. According to the published study that was conducted over a 25 year period of time and included 90,000 women, mammograms are not reliable for detecting breast cancers and they can cause many women to be misdiagnosed. The misdiagnosed women patients are then subjected to unnecessary treatments that are extremely dangerous.

An article that was published in the February 12, 2014 edition of the New York Times discussed the finer points of the British study. The research performed and released in the mainstream media has created even more doubt, in the minds of women throughout America, about this very controversial modality.

For many years healthcare researchers have publicly aired their concerns about the risks associated with breast cancer screenings.

The release of this report will likely be a bitter pill for many in the medical community to swallow. Mammography is a cash cow and not something that traditional medicine and the petrochemical industry want perceived in a negative light. Like other questionable medical modalities that have come under public scrutiny, there will be a lot of damage control offered up by the traditional Medical Establishment in response to this research. You can count on an onslaught of strategic attacks that will be launched at the study. You can be sure that many medical experts will come out and tell the gullible public that the study has inherent flaws and that the research should not be trusted.

The British study demonstrates that some research being performed is truthful and not compromised by Big Pharma. It is quite refreshing to see that a study of this magnitude was able to see the light of day.
