The Universe Revisited
John Alessi built the space ship Seeker. John's son, Eric a professor at M.I.T. invented a revolutionary engine that would allow the Seeker to travel through space at the speed of light. The magnetronic drive harnessed magnetism and the gravity of planets as propulsion for his ship. John was able to travel to the far reaches of the Universe in mere days instead of years or a lifetime.
On his maiden voyage to Mars, John discovered life on the planet. The Martians lived under a sealed dome in the huge mountain of Olympus Mons. There he met Kimi, a beautiful Martian woman and fell in love. She became his mate and traveled with him aboard the Seeker. Together they discovered sentient beings on other planets in unexplored reaches of the Universe never seen by man.
Their travels took them through wormholes and galaxies to several planets in the Universe. On these planets John and Kimi discovered humanoids. They interacted with the inhabitants and found their cultures to be similar to those on planet Earth.
Throughout their travel and interaction with the various cultures of those planets, John and Kimi could not fathom how these beings could all have such striking similarities with the cultures of Earth in appearance, foods, language, and religion.
The revelation came after John and Kimi left the sixth planet they visited. After leaving the planet and returning to deep space, they met a fiery glow of seemingly hundreds of suns where a booming voice resonated from space into their minds.
The thoughts resounded loudly, "I am your one true god. I am all that there is. I am the Creator. The Universe, the planets, the galaxies, the stars are all that I am."
The Creator explained in detail how it was the Universe and created planets and initiated the creation of Earth and evolution of mankind. John and Kimi accepted the Creator's story as it made perfect sense. After all, the Universe is totally endless, infinitely powerful and most of it is still beyond human comprehension.
After their revelation meeting with the Creator, John invited Kimi to start a new life with him on planet Earth. She happily accepted. They returned to Earth and Kimi quickly assimilated into the society of her new world.
A while after their return to Earth, a nagging thought occurred to John. He discussed with Kimi about how all the beings on the planets they discovered were entirely peaceful and friendly. None exhibited a "dark side" such as existed on Earth with its documented history of violence, greed and envy.
After discussing the differences between the peaceful beings they encountered and the inhabitants of Earth, they became determined to find the reason for the 'duality' of mankind and the origins of good and evil.
John determined the answers might only be found by returning to space . . . .
