Whenthe ancient prophecies of major floods and earthquakes are suddenly fulfilled, many of Earth's people are rescued by spacecraft and taken to huge mother ships, where they are received as honored guests while Planet Earth undergoes a complete restructuring.
As they enjoy the enriching experiences of daily life on these giant spaceships, they debate and plan their New Society. Rejecting outright any form of aggression and planetary pollution, they develop new ideals of law and liberty based on one simple, all-embracing principle reflected in a full program of land and resources-use, economy, business, and personal liberties.
Just as many intrepid souls once crossed the Atlantic from the Old World to a new continent and a new life, so the time finally comes when Earth's people return to their 'new' planet, now cleansed, refreshed and replanted.
Take a full guided tour of a giant spacecraft 25 miles long and 5 miles high, follow the detailed policy and planning debates, and glimpse the ideal society we all dream of, yet never manage to create.

Chapter 3 – THE HIGHER PLAN
“We know”. Someone in the crowd spoke. “Many of us were aware, what we were doing to our beautiful planet. It gave us great sadness. We really were trying to mend our ways!”
Commander Alizantil answered.
“Yes my friends, you were thoughtless, selfish, and destructive. And it was right that you recognized this, individually and collectively as responsible citizens of Planet Earth. But I will say to you, that there were other factors leading to the unsustainability of your civilization. To speak briefly, your level of technology and your accelerating population growth were not equaled by the ability of your societies to organize themselves socially and environmentally. No sooner were your more advanced societies beginning to make real progress in environmental standards, than newly developing nations began to follow the same path of pollution, and disrespect for the natural resources of their homelands. For example, I can glance back, but a few years through the Akashic records of history to see the streets of major Chinese cities clogged with thousands of bicycles. Then, almost overnight, it was motor cars, reflecting their new wealth and prosperity. This is an inevitable product of civilization. It is all foreseen within the Great Plan.”
“Then why did the Great Plan permit such an enormous, and unsustainable population on our Planet?” a young woman asked.
“You speak as if to doubt the Great Plan” – Alizantil smiled, as if to reassure everyone present that doubting the Great Plan might be unwise, but was certainly everyone's prerogative. “Again, there was a reason. You see, with these Changes long foretold and scheduled, there were many old scores to settle, old wounds to heal. And many souls wished to reincarnate at this time in order to fulfill their karmaic roles.
