The Other Side Of Existence

“I didn’t realize how hungry I was until the provisions appeared.” “Which of the sons have come to be devoured?” “None. The souls of humans have arrived.” “How many humans remain on planet earth?” “Look. Just over 9 billion.” “Has the land been divided?” “It has. The humans have divided it into 196 separate sections. Each section is established as an independent nation.” “Have they activated the power?” “They have. But they remain unaware of the source. They refer to him as “Dark Energy”. “What method do they utilize to receive?” “The humans have established gods that rule in the form of words they call “Law”. All who refuse to abide by The Law are isolated, maimed, or killed.” “How many humans does the most powerful nation isolate?” “Look. Just over 4 million.” “What is that cluster of states?” “The United States.” “What do the humans call it ?” “They call it “The United States.” “Why does the land look so neat?” “The majority of those particular individuals have mastered the art of taking better care of the appearance than that of the actual state.” “Do they call?” “They call.” “Does He hear them?” “He hears them, but they are wicked, so He does not listen. The Law commands that the isolated humans receive an abundance of care. The Source therefore blesses them with the means to provide an ample quantity of guardianship and attention to those held captive. The land that incarcerates the most humans has therefore become the most powerful kingdom to of ever risen on planet earth.” “Have they used the power to establish the foundation of the rise?” “They have! But not one comprehends the creation.” “Has one been found worthy to unseal the scroll?” “One has! The Lamb has resurrected with authority to initiate the beginning of the end!” “Behold. Behold! Behold! Bloody presentiments shall pour out many endings! Time is near the fruit of the end from the root of the beginning! We are now authorized to feast on time! Begin chewing from In The Beginning!”

Beyond Time

“Woa! Woa woa woa! Reboot! Reboot the system immediately!” The senior meteorologist startled his subordinates with his highly unusual request suggesting the most state of the art equipment in the field of meteorology was for the first time ever somehow malfunctioning. Everyone quickly scrambled to the screens of various devices and began punching commands into keypads at the speed of their racing heartbeats. No one knew why they were doing what they were doing, but everyone knew it was not a test. “My God!” As the senior meteorologist stared at the screen in horror, he shouted, “Relay the information to Piz Daint for confirmation immediately! No one is permitted to contact anyone outside the facility, nor accept any form of communication from anyone anywhere, regardless to the seriousness of the situation! The government will be here very soon to ensure that no one has leaked any information, so do not leak any information!” A woman’s voice hesitantly said, ”But…we don’t even know…” ”Look at the screens! Can’t you see? This is an extinction level event!”

”Ha! Look at what the stargazers down at W.M.O. just sent to receive, listen to this, ”verification of the possibility of the physics of a recent event.” ”Are you serious?” ”Am I? This is seriously one of those moments where I really wish I was joking, but unfortunately, this is the world we live in. These highly educated astronomers are literally asking us to verify whether or not something that ”just happened” can actually happen. And they need the answer to this difficult question, not now, but right now, like ”right now”. I should just respond, ”Duuuuh! It already happened!” The female busted out laughing as she asked, ”So what are they saying just happened?” The young man’s entire demeanor completely shifted as he sat up in his chair to reread the description, as the female nervously asked, ”What are they saying Josh?” ”They… they… are we live?” ”Of course we’re live! We’re always being broadcasted to anyone who tunes in to the e-channel.” ”Go off air!” ”What?” ”Take us off air like right now! Seriously!” ”Josh you’re scaring me.” Josh continued to give the woman a silent furious stare as he pursed her lips and started disconnecting the recording equipment as an ocean of concern began pouring into her stomach. As soon as their every move was no longer being broadcasted to the world, Josh immediately began typing in the coordinates of the Hubble Space Telescopes’ observations of some strange activity around the planet Mars. The room was dead silent as Josh received the results, shook his head in disbelief, and initiated a recalculation saying, ”W.M.O. actually asked a very good question. after a few more moments of silence, the woman finally said, ”What’s happening?” Josh shook his head to the negative and initiated a third recalculation saying, ”This is like the worst thing the worst imagination can imagine, all-of-a-sudden coming out that wicked mind to literally destroy us all. That’s the equivalent to what this thing is saying.” The woman looked sick as she asked, ”What do you mean?” Josh bit his bottom lip and began sending the results back to W.M.O. as he said, ”Karen, do you remember when I told you how I really feel about you, and that the only reason I don’t get into relationships is because I’m just too focused on my career?” Karen could hardly respond as she struggled to say, ”Josh… I…” Josh finished sending the results back to W.M.O. and for the first time in it’s decades of operating, he initiated the destructive process of shutting down one of the world’s fastest supercomputers. Karen shot out of her chair looking like she’d seen a ghost as she witnessed Josh commit a crime that was punishable by up to five years of imprisonment. Karen shouted in a whisper, ”What are you doing? Your gonna get us both in serious trouble!” A red light began flashing followed by a loud blaring sound as Josh finished punching in the final self-destruct commands, turned to karen, and shouted over all the noise, ”The whole world is in trouble Karen! Billions of people are gonna die!” Karen covered her mouth with both her hands as Josh got down on one knee, grabbed one of Karen’s’ hands, and shouted, ”We got no choice but to get married now! We don’t have one second left to waste!” Tears poured out of Karen’s’ eye’s as she said, ”I’m scared Josh, why did you shut the system down?” Josh looked directly into Karen’s’ eye’s and screamed, ”Will you marry me?” ”Yes! Yes! You know I love you Josh! But what’s going on?” Josh quickly rose to his feet and screamed, ”Hurry! We gotta hurry!” He grabbed Karen’s hand and led her out the room, into the hallway, and straight towards the elevator. As Karen ran behind Josh she frantically shouted, ”Where are we going?” Terrified, Josh looked back at Karen, and then looked straight ahead at the steal elevator doors that were quickly approaching as he shouted, ”Before my dad died, he built a bunker in Zurich, deep underground, and he filled it with two decades worth of food and supplies for eight people! That’s where we’re going, someplace where we’re gonna be safe!” As they stopped at the entrance to the elevator, Josh had only made Karen feel more sick than she was already feeling. As soon as the doors finally opened, Karen said, ”But, why did you shut the system down?” Once they were finally inside the elevator descending to ground level, Josh let out a strong sigh, and said, ”Look. Something happened just off the orbit of Mars that up until a few minutes ago should’ve literally been impossible, but somehow and someway it happened, and real soon it’s gonna be crashing into this planet pouring itself all over the surface like furious streams of molten lava pouring out of an enormous volcano. We gotta worry about ourselves right now. We can’t just wait for the government to come put guns to our heads and tell us where we can and can’t go and what we can and can’t do, because if we wait around, that’s exactly what’s gonna happen, and they’ll either just kill us both, or they’ll have us stuck here on observation duty until just hours before the day of destruction, and then, they’ll just stuff us in some cheap government bunker with a crowd of coughing, farting, imbeciles, while a bunch of undeserving crooks break into my father’s bunker and greedily scarf up two decades worth of goods in just two weeks! No! That’s not how things are gonna happen!” Josh looked at his watch and said, ”It’s three o’clock in the morning, so the day shift won’t be here for another four hours. Me, you, and W.M.O., are the only people on the planet who know of the danger right now who aren’t part of any national government. So before all the chaos and confusion and traffic and foolishness that will occur when the rest of the world starts trying to prepare for their doom, we’re gonna secretly disappear unnoticed and leave everyone else to figure things out in the morning when they fix the system and learn of the danger. Trust me, we’re doing the right thing, we’re giving ourselves a much needed headstart.” Karen slowly nodded her head in agreement as the elevator doors opened to the barrels of assault rifles aimed directly at her head. Before they could raise their arms to surrender, their bodies were riddled with bullets as their blood joined to form a puddle on the floor. The soldiers quickly stuffed the bloody bodies into large black bags and carried them out to an enormous black helicopter that was full of large black bags. Inside all the other black bags were the deceased bodies of every single person who was found inside the W.M.O. headquarters. More soldiers then stormed the Piz Daint building in search of others.

United Nations Headquarters

New York, New York

October 14, 2032

”China?” “China is present.” “France?” ”France is present.” ”Russia?” ”Russia is present.” “The United Kingdom?” ”The United kingdom is present” ”The United States?” ”The United States is present.” ”For the record, it shall be noted that all five permanent seats of The Security Council of The United Nations are filled by the aforestated nations in Manhattan New York on this the fourteenth day of October two thousand thirty two.” The Secretarial General nodded his head to the clerk who conducted the roll call and said, ”Thank you. This emergency meeting was called to direct attention to an ongoing investigation into an international threat to global peace and security. The current threat is not an internal dispute. It’s origins are derived from activity that was first detected just beyond the orbit of the planet Mars. The Hubble Space Telescope discovered the activity and relayed the information to the World Meteorological Organization. The W.M.O. immediately forwarded the information to the Piz Daint supercomputer centre who confirmed through a series of calculations that an unobservable force literally caused three celestial objects composed mostly of frozen liquid to join the course of the comet ”Temple Tuttle”. Temple Tuttle has a course of orbit that causes it’s debris to storm down thousands of meteors onto our planet every thirty three years, and once a year we’re bombarded with it’s weaker debris because it’s debris stretches throughout the entire length of its orbit, so it’s head literally touches it’s tail. The resulting mediocre meteor showers are nothing more than a source of entertainment to those who choose to travel to certain locations to view the event. The reason we have gathered here today is to make some determinations of the various peacekeeping forces deployed throughout the world, to prepare the people of the world for the collision of the danger being presented by these three celestial objects that… according to technologically assisted observations, materialized out of nowhere! To further explain the phenomenon, we have here the director of the W.M.O. headquarters, Mr. Director?” The Director rose from his seat and said, ”Yes, thank you sir. As the general stated, we are in fact in grave danger. All the individuals who were present at the W.M.O. building were rendered direct threats to international security, due to the seriousness of the information I am about to relay to you. All of the individuals who were present at the W.M.O. building, as well as those who were present at the Piz Daint building, were rendered imminent and impending dangers to a premature disclosure. They were thereby all terminated on site… The following information is still considered to be ultimately sensitive and should be designated at your highest level of secrecy, if not beyond.” The Director pressed a few buttons on a small tablet he was holding, which caused all the lights in the small room to dim as a screen appeared in front of an empty wall. A recording of three large comets traveling back-to-back brought an instant uneasiness to the room that quickly captured everyone’s attention. The Director wiped a few droplets of sweat from his forehead as he said, ”All three of these comets will most assuredly collide into the earth. By no means could this bring our global civilization to a complete end. But, there is virtually no way for us to ensure the survival of nearly 9 billion people, we just do not have the time or the resources.” The Representative of the United States said, ”How much time do we have?” ”In New York, it will be precisely seven o’clock in the morning, March twenty second, two thousand thirty three when the first comet starts entering into the atmosphere.” The people in the room began murmuring and taking notes as the Director said, ”As I said earlier, these comets do not have the ability to destroy the entire…” The Russian aggressively cut the Director off by shouting, ”Why is it that you took so long to bring this to our attention? Had you informed us sooner, we could’ve long ago taken steps to ensure the survival of far more than the number it will now be because you have only given us five months to prepare!” ”Sir., the day before yesterday, none of these comets even existed. You see…” ”Aargh! Stop it! You just don’t want to take responsibility for getting billions of people killed. It was your job to watch for incoming objects and you missed these three, and now your trying to cover up your lethal mistake! That’s why you killed your own people and probably went as far as erasing records, destroying footage, and creating some bogus imagery of three comets popping up out of nowhere!” The Russian forcefully rose from his seat and shouted, ”You’ve said what you’ve said, and I’ve heard more than enough! I love my country and I love my people and we are not in collusion with the deceptive practices of the west! We do not kill or allow people to suffer and die for no good reason! I’m going back to my country to prepare my people for this…” The Secretarial General cut the Russian off saying, ”You cannot inform private citizens of this danger until we have prepared an appropriate disclosure.” The Russian twisted his face with a look of disgust as he stared into the Secretarial Generals’ eye’s and said, ”If you and I can handle the news, so can everyone else. This is not some secret of war! This is an event that will obliterate entire families,entire neighborhoods, perhaps even entire countries!” The Russian charged towards the exit as the Secretarial General raised his voice, saying, ”Sir.! You are not permitted to leave! Force may be used against you!” The Russian ignored the man and walked right out the door as the Chinese Representative also rose from his seat and started heading towards the exit saying, “China has sufficient low earth orbit observatory’s to track the incoming comets. We will properly prepare for the collision.” As soon as both men were gone, the Secretarial General pressed the touchscreen on a small tablet that was on the table right in front of him from which a voice shouted ”Sir. yes Sir.!” ”Detain and sequester the representatives of China and Russia immediately!” ”Detain? Sir., those individuals are diplomats protected under diplomatic immunity! I do not have the authority to detain them!” ”This is The Secretarial General of The United Nations Security Council! I am designating the representatives of China and Russia to be direct threats to international peace and security! I am giving you a direct order to detain and sequester the representatives of China and Russia and you are to use all forms of force necessary to secure their ”immediate” compliance! You are to do the same to ”anyone” who resists your efforts! Do I make myself clear?” “Sir. yes Sir.!” All three representatives who remained in the room felt like defecating the disturbing feelings they were feeling in their stomachs as the Secretarial General rose from his seat, calmly walked over to the exit, closed the door, and returned to his seat while saying to the Director, ”Please Sir., continue.” “Well, O.K., let me explain how these comets formed so rapidly before I speak on the damage they will…” The Director was cut off by the sound of gunshots that caused him to quickly dive underneath the table while everyone else remained seated. The gunshots ceased as fast as they started, and the voice on the tablet broke the brief silence in the room by shouting, ”Sir.! The Representatives of China and Russia are deceased! Along with all those who accompanied them!” The Secretarial General shook his head to the negative as he rapidly responded, ”Shut down this entire building! Sequester everyone who heard even as much as a faint popping sound! Scramble the networks! Detain ”everyone”, and do not permit the detainees to communicate with each other or any form of outside source! Document, clean, and sanitize the area of the shooting, and deliver the corpses to the nearest morgue to be destroyed by incineration immediately!” ”Sir. yes Sir!” The Secretarial General looked under the table and calmly said, ”Please Sir., continue.” The Director stumbled out from underneath the table, claimed to his feet, and mumbled, ”Uh…Right…Uh…” The Representative from France said, ”You were going to explain the origin of the comets.” ”Right!…Of course!…The comets!…Of course!…Uh…O.K. O.K.” The Director stumbled over to the screen, picked his tablet up off of the floor, and quickly said, ”It’s not that they just came from ”nowhere”, we know ”exactly” where they came from! “And” we know ”exactly” how they got here! They were formed! Rapidly! But, up until two days ago, we just never imagined this process of formation spontaneously occurring the way it did, and of all the places in this vast universe that it could’ve occurred, it just sprang up on a direct collision course with our planet!” The American said, ”So how could three comets just spring up like that?” “Exactly! Look, we’ve been wrestling with some very mysterious forms of existences for quite some time now. We have no clue as to what “existence” in-and-of-itself, is truly composed of.” Everyone looked confused as the Secretarial General said, ”What?” The Director inhaled a large breath of air while looking at the ground, then slowly blew it out as he looked back up, and said, ”Everything we can see is only four percent of what is really and truly there… We only interact with a tiny fragment of existence… Our realm isn’t even composed of enough of existence for us to even have the slightest idea of what it truly is, or what it’s even like. We don’t even know how anything truly looks, we’ve only seen four percent, we haven’t seen anything.” The Director scanned all the faces lost in deep thought, and said, ”Ninety six percent of existence is composed of what we call ”Dark Energy” and ”Dark Matter”, and we call them ”Dark” simply because we have no idea of what they really and truly are. We know Dark Energy is here, we know it caused The Big Bang, we know it stretches out the fabric of the universe, but we have no idea of what it is! All we know is it’s there, we kind of have an idea of what it’s doing, and up until two days ago it never really threatened us or put us in any danger, even though it’s always been a very serious threat.” The American looked puzzled as she said, ”How do you figure it’s always been a ”threat”? And how is it threatening us now?” The Director nodded and said, ”The greatest astronomical discovery of the twentieth century was that the galaxies of the universe are all moving further and further away from the earth, and further and further away from each other at a continuously accelerating rate. The only force causing the increasing speed of the expansion is Dark Energy.” The American said, ”So the universe is growing?” ”The more appropriate term is ”stretching” or ”expanding”. You see, the universe is actually shaped like a big giant ball, and we’re near the center of it. The big giant ball is full of little clusters of stars we call ”galaxies”. We call our star cluster ”The Milky Way Galaxy”, and there are around 400 billion stars in our galaxy. Our sun is just one of those 400 billion stars. On top of all of that, the big giant ball which is our universe, is expanding at an accelerating rate, like a balloon being filled with air. The accelerating rate of the expansion of the universe is our evidence of some form of invisible force that we call ”Dark Energy”. The Director scanned the confused looking faces, sighed, and plainly said, ”Just imagine a person blowing air into a balloon using the oxygen in their lungs. Each time they exhale into the balloon it expands. Then, they must inhale more oxygen into their lungs, and then exhale into the balloon to make it expand once more. Now imagine that your lungs was the literal source of oxygen, and you therefore never needed to inhale in order to exhale. Not only that, but the force of your lungs had the power to produce an infinite amount of increasing exhales, as if the force of your lungs kept getting stronger and stronger the more you exhaled. You could begin exhaling winds at 100 miles an hour, and in one second, you could increase the speed to 10,000 miles an hour. By the third second you could increase the speed to one million miles an hour and so on and so forth without ever finding the need to inhale in order to continue you exhaling. Well that’s precisely what our universe has been doing for the past 13 billion years, as if our universe is a big giant balloon, and Dark Energy has some type of super lungs that just keeps inhaling into our big universe ball at an accelerating rate!” The Secretarial General frowned as he said, ”If this universe is some big giant ball that is being blown up, won’t it eventually just blow up?” The Director bursted out a laugh and said, ”Sir., that’s common sense. But keep in mind that we do not know what Dark Energy actually is, and this ignorance rests on the fact that Dark Energy is the direct cause of the expansion of our entire universe, and whatever it is, it will also be the cause of any such explosion, and it will therefore dictate when any such explosion will take place.” The American said, ”What happens when a universe explodes?” The Director chuckled and said, ”Well, based on the fact that the increasing rate of the expansion of the universe is a direct indicator that Dark Energy very well may possess infinite energy, it just might be the release of such energy, either into or out of this physical state.” The Secretarial General slowly blinked his eyes and said, ”What does that mean?” ”Look we honestly do not know what anything truly is, but we do know that our physical realm is only four percent of whatever everything is. Why our realm is only four percent is a whole other topic of unknown subjects. It is possible, and very likely, that everything we can see is really and truly composed entirely of a form of existence that has infinite energy inherent in it’s very fabric, and for some reason, the energy is being withheld under some form of constraint. We have no idea, but the physical construct of this physical form of existence seems to be holding the very fabric of each and every subatomic particle captive, as if this physical realm is some form of particle prison. The release of the captives very well may equate to the release of infinite energy, an explosion beyond the definition of explosion so much so, instead of ”exploding”, everything may just be reformed into the purest form of energy that exists.” The American said, ”What does pure energy look like?” ”We do not know, we cannot see it” As confusion danced throughout the minds in the room, The Director shook his head and said, ”This understanding should not be too far fetched for you few here who remain, as you are all Christians, and should somewhat be familiar with the words of the oldest Christian document that exists, which is a letter that was written by the apostle Paul to the Church in Rome.” The Director quickly punched some keys on his tablet that made some Bible verses pop up on the screen which he began reading, saying, ”Look at this, it may give you a better understanding. It’s Romans chapter eight verses eighteen to twenty five. I’ll read it, ”For I consider the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God. For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope, because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now. Not only that, but we also who have the first fruits of the spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for the adoption, the redemption of our body. For we were saved in this hope, but hope that is seen is not hope, for why does one still hope for what he sees? But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance.” Paul’s level of comprehension was astonishingly accurate. For some reason, he was able to direct attention to the other side of existence, as existence with everlasting life interwoven in its very fabric, and this biblical ”everlasting life” is truly infinite energy. Paul somehow knew that this physical universe was composed entirely of a form of existence that is completely different from what it appears to be. It really makes your skin crawl when you really put some serious thought into the fact that your skin could possibly be aware that it’s your skin, and that it’s just trapped in some form of mediocre state, or in Paul’s words, ”subjected to futility”. What Paul calls ”being delivered from bondage” is clearly a direct reference to this physical realm being restored to its original infinite state. Furthermore, Paul also knew the accurate sequence of events that would lead to the end of this physical universe as we know it. We know that this whole entire universe will eventually just blow up one day, I mean, it’s just a big ball chucked full of little balls of fire, gas, dust, and flammable rocks. This universe is really and truly a big gigantic bomb that can explode at any moment and that bible guy somehow knew it…” The Director hit a few buttons on his tablet and a new set of bible verses popped up on the screen as he said, ”In Second Peter chapter three verses 6 to 13, Paul said, ”by which the world that then existed perished, being flooded with water. But the heavens and the earth which are now preserved by the same word, are reserved for fire until the day of judgement and perdition of ungodly men. But, Beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance. But the day of the Lord shall come like a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat, both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up. Therefore since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be dissolved, being on fire, and the elements will melt with fervent heat? Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.” You see, where Paul says ”we… look for new heavens and a new earth”, he is clearly making a well informed reference to the fact that this whole entire universe will be reformed into a form of existence that will never cease to exist, a form of existence that is composed of what we now know is infinite energy, what the Bible calls ”eternal life”. The reestablishment of such will clearly obliterate our whole entire physical form of existence.” The Secretarial General nodded and said, ”So how long has Dark Energy been a threat?” “Well, since the beginning Sir.! It’s been a threat for over 13 billion years now! You see, it doesn’t just ”stretch the universe”, it literally moves every single object on the inside of our entire physical realm. From the gazillions of stars to every single subatomic particle, on top of the fact that ”it’s” what set it all into motion! If Dark Energy has enough energy to simultaneously move trillions upon trillions of outrageously humongous suns, all at once, it obviously has more than enough energy to crush our little tiny planet like a giant wrestler smashing his foot down to annihilate one tiny little ant. We don’t stand a chance! Dark Energy can destroy us without us ever even realizing we were on the brink of being destroyed! The only thing that’s been keeping us safe is the fact that Dark Energy has always abided by its own natural laws of physics. But, two days ago it broke one of those laws on a level that will surely result in the loss of billions of lives.” The French woman said, ”Which of it’s laws did it break?” The Director nodded as he said, ”Everything in this room is everything in this room and that’s it. That’s a natural law. It’s a basic law of physics. In the science of matter and energy, which is physics, the law of conservation states that in a closed system where neither mass nor energy is added or subtracted, certain measurable quantities will remain constant. So let’s take this table for example. In theory, we can shred it, burn it, boil it, or grind it down to dust and sweep all of it’s tiny particles under a rug, and in theory, all of its particles will always continue to exist. In the same sense, another table can’t just pop up out of nowhere for no apparent reason. In our universe, except on a quantum level, nothing ever just pops up out of anywhere for no apparent reason, and that’s just the way things are. But we also know that it isn’t impossible for something to just pop up out of nowhere as long as that thing is fueled by enough energy to materialize, and that’s precisely what’s always been our greatest fear of Dark Energy. We do not know what it is, so we have no way of knowing what dictates how it chooses to use its energy. Dark Energy has more than enough energy to just pump this entire universe full of steaming hot sulfur and brimstone in the matter of one split second! Dark Energy can transform our entire existence into torment, torture, and pain, in an instant! At any given moment, this whole entire physical form of existence can be swallowed up by Dark Energy before anyone could even gasp and the only reason the universe seems to be in a state that such things wouldn’t happen is basically because everything has pretty much been behaving the same exact way ever since as far back as we can tell and that’s all the way back to the beginning!” All the people listening to the director all made a ”Hmm” sound at the same exact time, and the Director continued saying, ”Even the slightest change in the behavior of Dark if he knew for a fact that this physical realm is really and truly a creation that was formed out of a living form of Energy can be a sign that the universe is near it’s end. If Dark Energy wants a star in the sky it does’nt just put a star there, instead, it follows it’s patterns and procedures. A cluster of gas and dust must come together to form a nebula which will ignite and give birth to a ball of fire that will surpass temperatures in the sum of twenty to thirty million degrees Fahrenheit. We’ve somewhat always been able to trust that Dark Energy would always behave the same way, ensuring us that we would’nt wake up one morning to find a sun forming in our backyard, or a black hole forming in our brain. For the first time ever Dark Energy is breaking it’s own laws on a scale large enough to kill us all, if not a few billion.” The General frowned and said, ”You make it sound like this Dark Energy is aware of it’s own existence, like it has some form of intelligence or something.” ”Sir., mice have intelligence. Surely you can understand that it does’nt take much energy to manifest intelligence. We say that we do not know what Dark Energy is because it is literally invisible to the absolute sense of the meaning. We cannot see it, we do not know where it is, and we cannot find it, despite the fact that we can clearly see the extremely powerful results of it’s actions. We have no way of making any observations of whatever it is because its literally on the other side of existence, so, for all we know, it could be anything, or perhaps, even anyone…” Eye’s popped open as the Director gave an affirmative nod, while saying, ”Not only is Dark Energy obviously aware of everything it’s intentionally doing, has always been doing, and will ever do, but it also has far more than enough energy to simultaneously be aware of everything your doing, and thinking, and feeling, as well as everything I’m doing, and thinking, and feeling, at the same exact time that it also keeps it’s tabs on all the subatomic particles that form the atoms that form the elements of everything in existence under the preeminent dominance of the unseen force.” The American said, ”So your saying this thing could be Santa Clause?” The Director raised his thick bushy eyebrows and said, ”No mam, I’m saying that the force of energy that placed this entire planet in jeopardy of an extinction level event by forming three comets in an instant and placing them in a direct collision course with this planet, that is sure to cause billions of deaths, is the same exact force of energy that brought everything in this universe into existence, so it obviously took some form of intelligence to bring intelligence into existence. Look, I’m the only one in this room who identifies as an atheist, but that does’nt mean that I am ignorant to the testimonies of individuals such as Isaiah, Jeremiah, and the Psalmist, among others, who all claimed that the Creator told them “He” ”stretches out the heavens”, thousands of years before we even had the ability to see the activity transpiring in deep space to determine that what those individuals called ”the heavens” is actually stretching, just the way they claim their ”God” told them it is… Don’t look at me like that, I’m not saying I’m a christian or any of that stuff, but I do find it quite interesting that quite a few people living in a pre-advanced-telescope-era all claimed that the ”Creator” of the ”heavens” told them something they had no way of figuring out on their own, or even with the help of every other person on the planet in those days. They had no way of even guessing that what they called ”the heavens”, which is truly the universe, is stretching. But they repeated what they claimed to of heard, despite how ridiculous the assertion may of seemed. They believed that they were in contact with the Creator, they wrote down what they claimed to of heard, and now that we have the powerful tools to enable us to see what they could’nt possibly of seen, we now know that their implication that the universe is stretching is accurate! Furthermore, they claim that this “God” is “Almighty”, that “He” has ”eternal life”, and that it is ”He” who ”stretches the heavens”. I have no idea of who or what their ”God” is, and frankly, I can care less. But, what I do know is that Energy cannot be created nor destroyed, Dark Energy seems to be the source of infinite energy, and Dark Energy is stretching the universe. So did Dark Energy contact these humans of times past? I have no clue. And, have we simply renamed their God “Dark Energy”? I do not know, because, I do not know what Dark Energy is. So anyway, the first comet is so small the sun and our atmosphere will melt it down to a cloud of who knows what is inside that big ball of ice. We may see the biggest meteor shower ever, or, we may see a whole lot worse. We just won’t know what we’re dealing with until the sun peals back enough of it’s layers so we can see. The second comet is far too large to be completely disintegrated by the sun. It’s currently on a collision course with the Atlantic Ocean. We do not know the composition of the comet, so we cannot say what will happen when this large piece of ice lands in the Atlantic Ocean and melts. But we do know that the coastal regions of Southern Greenland, east of the Americas, west of Africa, and virtually all of the Caribbean islands, will be completely destroyed. Entire states, and quite a few small countries, will all need to be evacuated. Something in the neighborhood of half a billion people will need to be relocated.” The American began rubbing on the sides of her temples while staring at the table shaking her head to the negative as the Director continued saying, ”The third and final comet is far smaller than the second, but is still large enough to pass through the atmosphere and crash into the crust of the earth. It is currently on a collision course with the Middle East.” The French woman said, ”The Russians are going to swear that these comets were somehow created by a group of people right here on earth.” The Secretarial General responded, ”The Russians are free to believe anything they can imagine! But! If any nation, or even any nations for that matter, become any form of threat to international peace and security, they will be dealt with accordingly!” The Director quickly nodded in agreement, and said, ”Finally, the last comet will disintegrate and release unknown substances into the atmosphere. In case of any fallout, all locations within 300 miles of Baghdad will need to be evacuated.” All three Representatives shook their heads to the negative as the woman representing the United Kingdom said, ”They’ll never desert their land. The majority Muslim population will refuse to believe that Allah would allow them to see such destruction.” The Secretarial General shrugged his shoulders and responded, ”They’re more than welcome to stay put! If they don’t believe in The Rock, they can continue on with their day-to-day activities until it lands and converts their whole entire region into believers!” The Director shook his head to the negative as he said, ”Noone will be continuing on with any type of normal activities. You see, the force that created the comets is still with them… Before the comets even enter the earths orbit, the force will cause some form of cataclysmic disturbance of the earth and atmosphere.” The American jolted her head, and said, ”You mean Dark Energy is coming with the comets?” ”Well, not necessarily ”Dark Energy”, it’s more of it’s ghost.” The French woman blurted out, ”It’s ghost?” ”Dark Energy is in an unseen realm. It exists in an invisible form of existence. When it does things in it’s realm, we experience a form of after affect that materializes in the form of a spontaneous physical manifestation. The force I’m speaking of is basically the ripple effect of the comets spontaneous manifestation. There will most assuredly be a very powerful forcefield crashing into the earth before and after the comets, and it very well may bounce into the sun and return with a decent amount of it’s heat, if not some of it’s flames.” The American’s eye’s widened at the thought of a forcefield of flames crashing into the earth. She looked directly at the director and said, ”Is there any chance of survival? Would’nt we be burned alive in underground bunkers? Should we be launching a preservation group to the moon or to mars? And what about the space stations? Are’nt the astronauts in danger?” The Director calmly responded, ”The brave men and women in the space stations have vowed to keep watch until their posts are destroyed. They requested that we use our resources to save the many, as opposed to those few. To be safe outside of the planet, a preservation group would need to be further away from the forcefield than we can get them. Everyone will be safer here on earth, and the chances of survival will only increase by being sheltered in an underground bunker.”

“Call me as soon as you reach!” “O.K. mommy. I love you!” “I love you too sweetie!” “Come on Jasmine we gotta hurry before your dad locks us out and releases the dogs on us.” The tiny-framed nine year old laughed and said, “He was just joking Tiffany, you know we don’t have any dogs. But we do gotta hurry because daddy always makes Italian food on Friday.” As Tiffany grabbed her sleep over bag, she said, “Well thank God it’s Friday!”

As soon as they reached the corner house, they could smell the aroma of Italian spices fuming out of the windows. Both girls mouths began watering as they approached the front door with growling stomachs. Jasmine lifted an imitation pebble from a pile of pebbles, turned it over, and pulled out her hidden front door key. As soon as Jasmine opened the door, she gasped, dropped her backpack, and bolted into the house in tears, screaming, ”Daddy! Daddy! Daddy!” Tiffany bolted over to the phone and immediately dialed “9-1-1″. ”9-1-1 What’s your emergency?” Through tears Tiffany managed to cough out words saying, ”We just came in from school… And my best friends dad… Is on the floor… In the kitchen.” O.K. Can you tell me your address?”

Department of Defense

Washington, D.C.

One Hour Later

The Secretary of Defense stood in a large auditorium in front of the leaders of the Army, the Navy, and the Air Force. He looked around the silent room, and said, ”An international state of emergency has been declared in preparation for the impending disclosure of an extinction level event.” Slight movements and repositionings could be seen in the crowd, but other than a few throat clearings, not one word was uttered. The Secretary broke the brief pause by saying, ”An interdimensional forcefield fueled by Dark Energy has intentionally materialized three comets and set them on a direct collision course with this planet.” Eyeballs popped out the socket as a wave of shock and disbelief sprinted across the room. The Secretary continued to invoke fear, saying, ”The first comet will disintegrate down to a cloud that will enter the atmosphere in a form composed of currently unknown substances. The second comet has a nucleus the size of Hawaii, and it will crash into the Atlantic Ocean in exactly 130 days.” Every eye in the room was glued to the Secretaries face in desperate search for even the slightest sign of the highly unlikely possibility that he was joking. ”All coastal regions which border the Atlantic ocean will be completely destroyed, and must be evacuated. Every island in the Atlantic Ocean will be completely destroyed, and must be evacuated.” The Secretary paused, and then said, ”The final comet is the size of Mount Everest, and it will land on Iraq.The Navy will be deployed into the Caribbean Sea to assist with the transport of individuals and supplies from out of lethal zones into designated safety locations. The Marines will be deployed into Brazil to assist with the

establishment of temporary inland housing units for the displaced. The Army and National Guard will be deployed onto American soil to assist with the relocation of something in the neighborhood of 150 million Americans. In conjunction with the international declaration of a state of emergency, global marital law has been instituted. All nations have agreed to open their borders and operate their military forces as one united force, except for the following, which have all been designated as hostile combatants China, Russia, North Korea, Iraq, Iran, and Syria. The hostile combatants are the only countries on the planet that have chosen to endure the incoming disasters as individual nations. Once order is established, and all the displaced have been relocated to their inland safety locations, force will be used against the hostile combatants in the event that their methods of preparation are determined to be a danger to the safety and security of the general population of the people of planet earth.”

“In one hour, the national network of organizations and institutions involved in the imminent effort of securing the United States from the danger currently posed by the incoming celestial objects, will begin directing the dispersement of military forces, in coordination with law enforcement, into public and private streets, to enforce an indefinite curfew. Before the general public can be made aware of the magnitude of the incoming danger, every road, airway, and waterway, public and private, must be cleared of all vehicles, aircrafts, and vessels. All civilians must be secured on the inside of some form of enclosed structure. Resistance will be met with instant death. Any individual who stands in opposition to any final order shall be designated an enemy combatant who shall be immediately terminated as a danger to global peace, safety, and security. Any unauthorized persons found in the streets, flying an aircraft, or operating a motor vehicle or water vessel, shall be terminated on sight without question. Federal and State Constitutions are officially no longer in effect. All buildings, structures, persons, and things, air, land, water, vessels, vehicles, and crafts, are now the property of the United States government. Civilians are all ordered to enter into a structure and remain until given further orders. Civilians will have 6 hours to comply with these orders. In 7 hours, any civilian who fails to comply with these orders shall be terminated.”

Dallas, Texas

Three Hours Later

“Mam, this road is closed to the public. There are no private dwellings or residential structures down this road I advise that you immediately find an enclosed structure, enter into the structure, and remain therein.” “That’s what I’m trying to do! I own my own home, but my daughters best friends’ dad is inside that hospital that’s down that road, and according to this ridiculous indefinite curfew thing, he’s gonna need a ride home, and that’s why we’re here. So if you don’t mind, can you please tell them to raise that lever so we can go get my neighbor and go home?” The shoulder began growing visibly impatient as he gripped his assault rifle a little firmer, and began shouting, ”Mam! Only government vehicles are allowed access to this road! This road is closed to civilians! You are a civilian! To you, this road is thereby closed! The only way you will come down this road is in the back of an ambulance! I am giving you a direct order to cease your non-compliant behavior by reversing, performing a U-turn, and returning to your residence immediately!” ”Where are your manners! Don’t you…” The soldier dramatically raised his rifle and aimed it directly at the woman’s head, causing Jasmine and Tiffany to let out bloodcurdling screams from the backseat as Tiffany’s mother firmly gripped the steering wheel with both her hands and screamed as she stared down the barrel of a high-powered rifle for the first time in her life. “Soldier! Lower your weapon!” An older man also holding a rifle, wearing an identical uniform as the younger man, with the addition of three black stripes on his shoulders, walked up to the driver side window as the younger soldier backed off, and said, ”Mam! What part of turn around and leave do you not understand? Did you not hear the announcements? The whole entire world is in a state of emergency, and this entire country is now under martial law. You and those children can be killed for not following orders! This is serious business! What is your malfunction?” Still gripping the staring wheel in utter shock, through tears, she managed to say, ”I was just trying to pick my neighbor up…He had a heart attack… And was transported here yesterday… in a coma. That’s his only child in the back seat.” The man looked at the two tear-covered faces in the back seat, then looked back at the driver, and said, ”I understand. Now ”you” need to understand! No one is permitted to enter into this hospital unless they are government personnel, or they are brought here inside a emergency transport vehicle. Furthermore, no one inside the hospital is permitted to leave on their own accord. If your neighbor has been discharged, he will be transported to his residence once the streets are cleared. This means you are delaying his release by still being in the streets.” “But his daughter is staying at my house. How will they reunite if no one can go outside?” “She looks old enough to take care of herself until her father is carried home, drop her off at her house.” The woman looked back at Jasmine, and as soon as they locked eyes, Tiffany hugged Jasmine and said, ”Mommy we can’t just leave her all alone! We dont even know what’s happening!” The woman looked back at the soldier and went to speak, but before she could say anything, he said, “Just go to your neighbors house and… do you have a partner?” ”No. My husband died From a heart attack 4 years ago.” “Oh. So where’s the girls mother?” “My mommy died from stage 4 ovarian cancer when I was 5.” “Oh. O.K. Well does your father have a partner?” “I’m his partner.” The man busted out laughing, and said, “I mean, does your father have a wife, or girlfriend, or other?” Jasmine and Tiffany both laughed, as Jasmine said, “No. My daddy serves The Lord.” Just then, an ambulance pulled up behind the woman’s car, and the driver of the ambulance stuck her head out of the window, and said, “Is that Megan?” The man looked at the driver of the car, and said, “Is your name Megan?” As Megan nodded, the man looked back at the ambulance driver who had hopped out of the ambulance, and said, “Yes, this is Megan.” As soon as the ambulance driver walked up to the driver side door of the car, Megan jumped out the car, screaming, “Oh my goodness Rebeeca!” As Megan and Rebecca embraced, Megan looked at Tiffany, and said, “Sweetie this is your cousin Rebecca… don’t look at her like that! This is your dads oldest brothers youngest daughter.” “Oooh! The Florida people?” Megan and Rebecca both laughed, as Megan said, “Yea, the Florida people.” Rebecca then got very serious, and said, “What are you doing here Aunt Meg? Is everything O.K.?” “Well, I just had a gun pointed at me!” The man locked eyes with Rebecca, and said, “That was a trigger happy youngster, but you know what’s happening, and you need to wrap this little reunion up and clear this entrance, this is very serious business!” “Yes Sir.! Listen Aunt Meg, inside that hospital is about to be a million times more safer than inside your home, especially since your not a gun owner. Trust me on this, give those soldiers your vehicle and hop in the ambulance with me, i’ll get you guys into the hospital.” “Give them my vehicle?” “Aunt Meg, the world we woke up in no longer exists…” Rebecca lowered her voice so the girls in the car couldn’t hear her speak, as she said, “In a few hours, there will be dead bodies all over the streets. This curfew will cause widespread civil unrest, and all the people in the streets will be terminated by soldiers and drones. Once the killing starts, more people will pour into the streets, starting fires, looting, invading peoples homes, raping women, and doing all types of third world things. Trust me, that vehicle will either be burned, stolen, or commandeered by the government by tomorrow morning. Get those girls and come with me.” Rebecca took a better look in the car, and said, “Who’s that black girl?” “That’s Jasmine, Tiffany’s best friend. Her father lives in the corner house on my street.” “In the big two story?” “Yea yea, he’s a Conservative Christian talk radio guy, and he’s here.” “Here at the hospital?” “Yea! He had a heart attack yesterday.” Rebecca’s face twisted as she blurted out, “Well what are you waiting for? Let’s go!”

Brooklyn, New York

8 Hours Later

“Su-Wuu!” “Cu-Riip!” “Amor-De-Rey!” “Wu-Wuu!” “This is an unlawful gathering! You are in an unauthorized area! Civilians do not have permission to be in the streets! This is your final order to cease your disorderly actions and comply with the directive to enter into a structure and remain! This final order will not be repeated! If you refuse to enter into a structure, deadly force will be used against you!” A voice screamed out from the crowd of predominantly Black and Hispanic men and women dressed in red, blue, and yellow clothing, shouting, “We run the streets!” The entire crowd started chanting, “We run the streets! We run the streets! We run the streets!” An Army captain sitting inside a bulletproof vehicle radioed in to his general requesting permission to use deadly force.

The general picked up the receiver, and said, “What does the scene look like?”

“We got about fifteen thousand young men and women, several dozen small children, and quite a few infants. All predominantly Black and Hispanic gang members, not brandishing any weapons, marching and chanting in unison, 4 hours past the deadline, refusing to follow all orders. A final order has been given, the non-compliant behavior continues to persist. We set up a perimeter around the 4 block radius that they are currently occupying. Destroyer drones are hovering above, ready to begin firing at the targets.”

The general rubbed his tired eyes while shaking his head to the negative. He blew a strong gust of coffee scented breath out of his mouth, looked at the other generals sitting at the table, and said, “Usually, we would have some very serious political issues with using deadly force on such a large group of civilians peacefully protesting. But, regardless to their obvious ignorance of the law, these individuals no longer possess the freedom of speech, or to peaceably assemble. We are on the brink of an extinction level event. The whole entire world is in a state of emergency! Every single person on this planet is subject to Marshall Law with zero regard to whether or not they possess even the slightest comprehension of their expectations. Constitutional rights, civil rights, the bill of rights, and all natural rights, are officially obsolete! The failure of our educational system has unfortunately produced massive groups of extremely unstable individuals who fail to comprehend the lethal danger of challenging the authority! This failure has thereby presented us with the “worst” type of scenario imaginable!” As the general raised his voice, the other generals showed signs of empathizing with his outburst of emotion. The general clenched his jaw, blew air out of his nostrils, and said, “Political issues no longer play a role in the determination of any decisions. Our number one priority is the preservation of life that can only be established on the foundation of absolute order. It is our duty to establish and maintain order, and we will fulfill our duty by any means necessary!” The general quickly scanned a sheet of paper, and then said, “We have two options! We can isolate the interior of the perimeter, scramble the communication devices, cut the power, terminate every target, and initiate a rapid cleanup. Option 2 is to establish a barrier in place of the perimeter, which will include the installation of roofs that would cover all open spaces exposed to the elements. In the second option, it will take continuous manpower to maintain the barrier that can in fact be destroyed if met with enough resistance. Option 2 also presents the dilemma of the delivery of food and health supplies, and then worrying about whether or not everyone is receiving and being able to utilize their fair share. In option 1, we must also consider eliminating only a fraction of the targets, delivering a message to the remainder that such is the fate of those who refuse to follow orders. On the other hand, if we totally eliminate the targets, we will also eliminate the possibility of any retaliatory efforts when the military returns to that area, and many others like it, to transport any individuals inland. We do not want anyone relocating with hostile feelings towards the government that would actually act on their feelings with hostile feelings directed at authorities.” The general scanned the sheet of paper once more, gave an affirmative nod, and then said, “Wherefore, on the basis of the seriousness of the current occurance, and the current chaotic state of this whole entire world, in order to set a precedent that will establish immediate order in the area in which the request was made, as well as in those numerous other areas faced with similar massive non-compliant scenarios, I say we hereby grant the request to utilize all forms of deadly force against all who have failed to comply with a final order! All agreed say I!” All 6 generals sitting at the table, said, “I” “I” “I” “I” “I” “I”. “The decision is unanimous! As said, so shall it be! The request to utilize deadly force is hereby granted!”

Compton, California

4 Minutes Later

“Yooo! Crenshaw on the block after hours! Ya heard that! Shout-out ta’ tha’ L.B.C.! Hollywood, y’all got nothing on my movie making skills! This? This right here? This is exclusive concrete jungle footage! Ain’t nobody on the block like us! Bringing it to you live on the net! Yooo! Shout-out to you clowns missing this California party! Hiding in tha’ house? Y’all done got grounded? Ha! 30 40 50 years old and y’all done got grounded! Man my grandma out here somewhere! I bet yours done got grounded by sneak ol’ Uncle Sam! Ha!” The young black man with bright red dreadlocks flowing down his back allowed his camera drone to fly high above the crowd to show a very large group of people dancing in the middle of the street. As the drone hovered over to a group of women, they all got excited and started screaming, “Look y’all we famous!” “Heeey everybody! We out here living it up!” “They done shut down the schools, all the restaurants, all the stores!” “We can’t even buy no food? Are y’all crazy? Not my government!” “No worries! Rasta-Mon out here cooking and selling all typa-ting!” “We don’t gotta work! We straight! Y’all can shut tha’ whole world down! You just better have my money!” “Whaaaat!” Over 50 thousand people crowded the streets and set up barbeque grills, D.J. booths, speakers, and bar tables, where they were selling food and drinks to people who were eating and drinking and having a good time when all the lights went out at the same exact time all the music stopped playing. Then, all the lights in all the houses and stores that lined the streets went out. There was an immediate silence mixed with an eerie calm crawling up the back of everyone’s spines as the people struggled to see through the pitch blackness. A voice screamed, “They jammed the phones! Do anybody phone work?” Panic exploded into chaos as people started stampeding over each other, trampling those who fell on the ground, tumbling over steaming hot barbeque grills, screaming shouts of terror of the unknown danger. Two men latched onto a woman and started tearing at her clothes as she cried to deaf ears that completely ignored her. Unannounced bright lights made all the madness cease as the blinding illumination stopped everyone dead in their tracks. The destroyer drones wasted no time delivering a monsoon of bullets upon all who stood in the streets. Of the over 50 thousand people who were partying, less than 500 were able to escape into structures by crashing through glass windows and solid doors before the highly sophisticated weapons in the sky were able to track them down and eliminate them.

The White House

Washington, D.C.

The Secretary of Defense promptly entered the Oval Office with a tablet in his hand that contained the top secret tally of the authorized uses of deadly force against civilians found outside of structures in the United States of America. As soon as the Secretary handed the President the tablet, she looked at it twice, and screamed, “Oh my Lord! This is ridiculous! You mean to tell me my military couldn’t convince over 5 million people that they would “kill them” if they didn’t go inside? This doesn’t even make sense! We didn’t give them a license to kill, we gave them an order to clear the streets! It looks like they’re just filling it with dead bodies! Unbelievable!… Hmm! Well it looks like they just went around shooting everyone they saw! Did they think they were playing a videogame? According to this, there are less than 2 thousand people left in the streets, in just… half an hour after the generals decided to start killing? Goodness gracious they killed over 5 million Americans in just half an hour?” “Mam, 99 percent of the civilians who remain in the streets are those who have taken hostages and are fleeing in some form of vehicle, aircraft, or water vessel.” “Don’t kill anyone else! Spray them with some form of anesthetics and take them into custody unconscious, but alive.” The President continued scrolling through the tablet, and then jolted her head back, as she said, “What’s with all these slayings of prisoners? They’re already inside! Why are people confined in cells being killed?” “Mam, the prisoners who were terminated were either attempting to escape after hearing the announcements, or they received some type of medication that was pertinent to their sanity or survival.” “So your killing people who you think will go crazy or will die if they can’t get medication?” “Prisoners mam, prisoners in prison, yes.” “Stop doing that! If they go crazy you deal with it by placing them in an isolation cell without any property. And stop killing people just because you think they are going to die either way, that’s just senseless!” The President scrolled through the tablet some more, shook her head, and said, “What in the world? What are all these “entrances into structures to eliminate targets suspected of planning to disrupt global security”, In America? What type of foolish reason is that to take someone’s life? And how could anyone possibly determine that someone is planning to disrupt, “whatever”, when they’re in absolute compliance with the order to enter into a structure and remain?” “Mam, intelligence was gathered from ongoing F.B.I., N.S.A., A.T.F., D.E.A., C.I.A., and ICE investigations into various forms of security threat groups and fugitives from justice. The vast majority of the targets that were eliminated while in compliance with the order to enter into a structure and remain, were members of some form of crime mob, criminal street gang organization, violent drug cartel, anti-government organization, anarchist group, paramilitary hostile militia, home grown terrorist organization, racial supremacist group, and quite a few fugitives from justice who escaped from various forms of secure detention such as prisons, work camps, and county jails. Once the precedent was set by the elimination of the almost 15,000 targets in Brooklyn, every single agent in every single agency acted on every single lead they ever investigated. Any person found anywhere who was known to be a danger to the local, statewide, national, or international community, was labeled a target and terminated in the name of peace and security.” The President firmly put down the tablet, and said, “O.K.! Are the streets cleared?” “As of right now, there are several dozen active fleeing to elude situations, where the targets are being pursued but not engaged for the sake of the hostages. To accomplish the goal of completely clearing the streets, the generals have requested an amendment to the rules of engagement, whereas, they request to use deadly force with zero regard for the safety of the hostages. Such action would…” “Absolutely not! No! Let them chase them until they run out of gas and negotiate them into custody! If that’s the only people left in the streets, the American people deserve to knows what’s going on. Now that the majority of the people are isolated, we are better prepared to deal with any isolated chaotic reactions. I’m ready to address the nation. Inform the United Nations that we will now be deploying our surplus troops into those nations that require our assistance.” “Yes Mam! And about the violent kidnappers, who are currently fleeing with hostages, what shall the authorities do in the event that the hostages lives are placed in danger?” The President rubbed her forehead, as she shook her head to the negative, and said, “If the hostage is literally about to die then of course they must kill the kidnapper, but “only” if it will save the hostages life.” The secretary took a mental note of the Presidents words, “kill the kidnapper”, and relayed his own interpretation of the Presidents message to the generals. Ten minutes later, all the kidnappers were dead, along with all the hostages, leaving all the streets, airways, and waterways, in the United States of America, cleared of all its civilians.

Dallas, Texas

October 17, 2032

“Daddy?” Jasmines father still hadn’t awoken from his coma after hitting his head on the kitchen counter during his heart attack. Jasmine gave him a gentle kiss right on top of the bandages on his head, and then quickly looked towards the doorway to see Megan and Tiffany smiling at her. Megan quietly said, “The doctors say he’ll make a full recovery sweetie. How about you come on down to the waiting room with us so we can listen to the Presidents address to the nation together. We’ll finally figure out what’s going on, and maybe later when your dad wakes up, you’ll be able to explain to him everything that’s been going on, O.K.?” Jasmine nodded, kissed her fathers boo-boo one last time, and then joined Megan and Tiffany as they walked down the hallway to the crowded waiting room where people were gathering around an enormous T.V. mounted to a wall. The people got quiet as the press secretary wrapped up her introduction of the President, saying, “…and now, the President of the United States of America.” There was plenty of applause on the television, while the crowded hospital waiting room remained silent. Two black women walked onto the stage with their adopted Cambodian daughter, who was born a male, and one of the women approached the mic., and said, “Thank you, thank you. I would first like to thank everyone who complied with the governments request to promptly find shelter and remain within it’s confines. Rest assured, our main objective is the safety and security of all of our citizens. The protocol that we chose to implement was developed through years of meditations on the appropriate actions to take in the event that this nation and this planet were to be faced with the form of dilemma that we are currently faced with right now. What I am about to tell you will alarm you. Please remain calm. This information will shock you and cause you to worry about whether or not you will survive. I can assure you, as your elected officials, it is our job to ensure that you all survive, and we will do our job as promised. In order for us to do our job, and guarantee your survival, all we ask you to do is continue to follow all orders immediately after they are given. Do not question any orders. The authority is working very hard to ensure your survival, but we cannot accomplish anything without your absolute cooperation. As long as you continue to follow all of your orders, you will be led to saftey, and we will come out of this situation as a united force, even stronger than we are right now. On October 13th, 2032, at approximately 2:52 in the morning, over Switzerland, an extremely unusual event transpired. The strange event was detected by the Hubble Space Telescope, which immediately relayed the imagery to the World Meteorological Organization Headquarters in Geneva. The telescope detected the spontaneous rapid materialization of three enormous celestial objects just off the orbit of the planet Mars. All three comets are on a direct collision course with our planet…” “What the Hell?” “Oh my God!” “We’re gonna die! We’re… we’re all gonna die!” The waiting room broke out in a panic. A man standing right in front of the T.V., turned to the crowd, and screamed at the top of his lungs, “That’s why we can’t go outside? They want us to just stay inside and die? And if we go outside we die? If we go outside or stay inside we die? No matter what we die?” Jasmine climbed on top of a small coffee table, and screamed as loud as she could, “Heeey! Can you all please be quiet? I’m trying to hear what we need to do to survive so I can tell my dad!” The pint sized 9 year old restored order to the waiting room, and the Presidents voice could once again be heard, saying, “…will completely disintegrate into a cloud of unknown substances, as it enters into the atmosphere, and rains down a trail of mysterious particles beginning in The Bay of Bengal above the Indian Ocean, and then over India, Pakistan, Iraq, Iran, Syria, Turkey, across the Mediterranean sea, Greece, Italy, Spain, Portugal, and then out into the Atlantic Ocean where it will cease its outpour. The second comet is roughly the size of Hawaii at its nucleus. It is expected to collide into the earth at 500 miles off the coast of Ireland, 1500 miles off the coast of the United States, directly into the Atlantic Ocean. The tidal wave from the deep impact will be so violent, it will completely destroy every island in the Atlantic Ocean, and every coastal region on the Atlantic Ocean in the Americas, Europe, and Africa. The final comet will land on Iraq. Before the comets even get close to our planet, we will be hit by a forcefield that the most recent calculations are showing will have the ability to cause a pole shift so severe, the entire crust of the earth may wobble out of place and move to a new location. As the points of impact change, we will make the appropriate accommodations to ensure that noone is left stranded in any danger zones.” The waiting room was dead silent, along with the dead silent rooms all around the world that were filled with attentive listeners who were all hearing about the danger for the first time. The Presidents voice continued to pump fear into peoples ears, as she continued to say, “After the comets hit the planet, the forcefield will bounce into the sun and return to the earth in the form of a colossal solar flare that may be strong enough to manifest firestorms that could cause actual flames of fire to touch down on the earth. As drastic as this all sounds, we can and will survive. We do have a plan that will work as long as we have your full cooperation. Survival of the people of planet earth is our number one priority. Please understand that there are millions of people currently working very hard to ensure that you survive this coming disaster. We’ve isolated everyone into structures so we could clear the roads and immediately begin the process of our preperations for survival. We must all put our lives on pause in order to save them. Our goal is to effectively move everyone out of the way of the danger, allow it to devestate parts of the earth, and then reestablish our civilization as we get right back on track with our lives. The first comet won’t enter our atmosphere until March 22nd, but we will begin experiencing the effects of the forcefield as early as January 20th. You must all understand that we have total control of this situation, we know exactly what needs to be done, and it’s exactly what we are doing. You must trust your government and look at the authority as your loving guardian who will lead you to safety by giving you the simple instructions that you must follow. You will all be given orders as needed. You must immediately follow all orders to be safe from the incoming threat of destruction. The very first thing you will need to do is elect the mediator for your structure. The mediator will be the only person who has permission to exit your structure each and every time your food and healthcare rations arrive. If your structure has more than four stories, noone will be allowed to exit, nor will your structure require a mediator. For those structures with mediators, the mediator will only be permitted to exit the dwelling for the duration of the time that it will take them to retrieve the ration box or boxes and enter back into their structure. The boxes are being prepared in every Town, County, and City, of every state. Government personnel have retrieved useful items from stores all throughout your state. They are currently putting together generous packages for every single person in this entire country. Your government has total control of all the food supplies and manufacturing facilities. We will utilize the bulk of these facilities to freelydistribute boxes of supplies that will keep you well fed and well groomed while remaining inside your structure. You will not need to pay for the boxes, for any water, any light, any electricity, rent, mortgage, or any bills. This entire country, and everything in it, has now become the property of the United States government, and we will utilize our property to evenly distribute the tools that you will all require for your survival. Your structure will be scanned by tracker drones that will determine the height, weight, and approximate age and sex, of all the structures occupants. Each and every individual will then receive a ration box for the following groups: Pregnant Teen, Pregnant Adult, Infant, Small Child, Adolescent, Adult, and Eldery. Please keep in mind, there will be certain healthcare produts inside some of the boxes that are intended for those individuals with the X Y chromosome. Due to the scarceness of the supplies, it would be unreasonable for us to include certain products in all of the boxes in the name of gender neutrality. We do understand that there will be quite a few women who receive packages intended for men, but please understand, as well as you men who receive women’s packages, the determinations are not being based on whether or not you actually are a man or a woman. The determinations are being based on whether or not your D.N.A. causes you to require specific healthcare products, and that is all. For those dwellings with mediators, your box or boxes will be dropped off in front of the apparent main entrance to your structure, by a drone that will sound a very loud alarm as soon as the package is dropped. If you are hearing impaired, and you are reading these words on a screen, please be on the lookout for your rations. If you are blind, and you are hearing these words, please listen carefully for the alarms that will blare each and every time a ration box is dropped in front of your structure. If anyone is seen attempting to steal your box, the algorithms in the artificial intelligence of the drones will detect that a crime is in progress, and they will kill anyone who leaves the boundary of one structure to enter into the boundary of another. If you see your neighbor struggling to retrieve their ration, mind your business and go back into your structure. If you leave your boundary you will be killed. If you go outside at a time when rations have not recently been delivered, you will be killed. Millions of drones will be soaring through the skies searching for wrongdoers. Do not think that this is an opportunity to prey on the weak. For those structures without mediators, Armed Forces will be entering into your structures with six-legged carrier drones to hand deliver the rations to all of the structures occupants. Please be advised that the government has unlimited ultimate power, and the Armed Forces are representatives of that power. They have direct orders to shoot and kill anyone who poses any type of danger, opposition, or even the slightest hindrance, to the task at hand. Each soldier will be equipped with technology inside their helmets that will tell them which individual gets which package. When they bring you your package, your duty is to accept it in silence. If you argue for a different package you will be killed. I repeat, if you even complain about your package, the soldiers have the right to kill you and any witnesses. There is no need for there to ever be any form of communication between the Armed Forces and the recipients of the packages. You cannot receive or purchase another package. Not even a million dollars in gold is useful in the face of this extinction level event. If you make any attempts at trying to communicate with any of the soldiers, they have the authority to perceive even the slightest “thank you” as hostile, and they will kill you. Please be extremely careful and cautious. Follow your orders to remain silent and you will not be harmed. Receive your ration in silence or face death. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, there will be a national hotline that you can call to voice your expressions. You are therefore ordered to interact with the soldiers in silence. Do not make the foolish mistake of making a fatal mistake. Accept what they give you and let them leave. They will be moving very quickly. They will literally be sprinting through your structures because they have millions of deliveries to make. The soldiers have orders to enter and exit within the specified times blaring across the screens of their helmets. They won’t even have time to make good eye contact with you so please just take the box and let them go. For those of you living in the following states, these arrangements won’t last long, as you will be the first ones to be evacuated into inland safety locations: Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, The District of Colombia, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, and the entire eastern region of Texas. In the following weeks, all sorts of transportation vehicles operated by government officials will be coming to your structures to pick you up and transport you to your designated inland safety locations. Some of you will be placed in underground bunkers. Some of you will be housed in above ground shelters. There is enough underground bunker space, aboveground housing shelters, food, and supplies, for everyone in this country, and everyone in a few small island countries. Brazil will house the majority of the displaced individuals from the remaining island countries. Loud horns and intercom drones will announce when it will be your opportunity to exit your structure and board your bus. The following will be the only personal items that you will be allowed to bring with you: One pair of socks, one shirt, one jacket, one pair of shorts or pants, one set of long johns, one head covering, one wig, one chain, one watch, one bracelet, one ring, one pair of glasses, hearing aides, an oxygen tank, one cane or walker, one inhaler, one contact lens case with a bottle of solution, and one cellular communication device. Nothing else will be permitted. When you arrive at your inland safety location, everything that you need to survive will be provided to you. Please understand, survival of the human race is our number one priority. You cannot bring any pets. Deadly force will be used against anyone who even attempts to violate these orders. If you are found in possession of contraband, you will be killed. Please understand, this is an extinction level event. Entire states and a few small countries will soon be completely destroyed. Many will survive, but over 5 million Americans have already perished for refusing to follow orders. This is a very serious situation. Many more people will perish for not following orders, so please understand, the number one priority is the preservation of “human” life, not that of the animals, any property, or any possessions. Once all the Americans are safe and secured, we will make space for the people who will be coming from foreign countries. We do not have room for sentimental items. If you are told to leave something behind, leave it behind, or you will be killed along with everyone standing next to you. The Armed Forces are authorized to do anything necessary to ensure that noone stands in the way of the preservation of our overall civilization, so please, do not make yourself into any form of hindrance by refusing to follow orders. If you have any medical needs, we will address those needs when you reach your designated safe location. If you are currently in need of any type of medication… or… or… or living assistance… you… you are instructed to call the medical hotline at…” “BOOM!” “BOOM!” “BOOM!” “BOOM!” “BAM! BAM! BAM!” “Ahhh!” “Ahhh!” “Oh my God!” The television screen went blank, just as the Presidents bloody corpse went crashing into the podium. Jasmine bolted off to her father’s room screaming screams that could barely be heard over all the chaos that erupted in the waiting room. As soon as Jasmine reached her father’s bed, she hopped right in and buried her tears in his motionless shoulder. Megan and Tiffany then bursted into the room so terrified, Tiffany closed the door without realizing Rebecca was right behind her. The door swung open and Rebecca charged into the room holding hands with a male nurse who slammed the door so hard, Jasmines father sat straight up in the bed, and screamed, “I just saw The Lamb! I watched The Lamb take the scroll from the Almighty! I just witnessed Him open the first seal!”

Washington, D.C.

1 Hour Later

“He was just an overall weird looking strange acting person. I couldn’t help but stare!” The Marine nodded his head at the woman, and said, “So you said he was “mechanical”? What do you mean by that?” “O.K., that’s the real spooky part! He arrived with the press. He was early. He had his pass and all that, but he walked like a robot and he didn’t speak at all! He just walked to his location and just stood there like a statue. He just stood there like a soldier at attention, staring directly at the podium before anyone even took the stage. He looked so dorky, like, everyone was laughing at him, and he just kept standing there all super-focused on nothing. He never applauded anyone, he didn’t take any notes, he didn’t even pay attention to whoever was on stage. The President even noticed how awkward he was and I made sure to take note of how out of place he seemed. He didn’t move one muscle until he suddenly jerked his body so dramatically, the President stuttered when he moved. It was like he was hit with a bolt of energy that made him stuff his hand into his lapel like his heart was hurting. That’s when the President stuttered, but he just kept holding his chest, so she just kept speaking. Then, his whole body jolted again, but that time he pulled out a gun and just stood in the same position firing shot after shot until he got shot. He was definitely under some type of mind control, or he was a robot, or a clone or something.” “Thank you, mam. Thank you for your statement. Your the final witness to this tragic event, so we’ll finally be able to wrap this up and get right back on track with securing the people of this planet from the incoming threat. There’s one last step in the process of officially documenting you as a witness, and then you’ll be free to leave. Please exit this room through the door that is opposite from the door that you entered. You will meet an officer on the other side that will give you further instructions.” The Marine quickly rose from his seat and exited the room through the door that he instructed the woman to exit through. Butterflies dance in her stomach as she nervously rose from her seat, held her head high, inhaled a large gust of wind through her nostrils, boldly walked right up to the door, grabbed the handle, and swung the door open to a loud hissing sound in the midst of a thick cloud of white smoke blasting directly into her face. Before she could run she collapsed. As soon as she hit the ground she was dead. The Marine stepped out of the room, wearing a gas mask, holding a large black bag in his hand. He quickly stuffed the woman’s corpse into the bag, carried it out of the building, placed it in the back of a truck full of corpse filled black bags, threw his mask into the truck, closed the door, and called his general.

“Right!… Right!… Roger that!… Good!” The general hung up the secure receiver, looked towards the other generals in the dark room, and said, “All targets successfully terminated and are currently in route to an incinerator!” The other generals nodded in silence, as the one who spoke dialed another number, and started speaking into the secure receiver saying, “Has he taken the oath?… Good! What has he empowered us to do?… Right!… Right!… Right!… Good!” The general hung up the secure receiver, and said, “The President of The United States has completely delegated the relocation and preservation efforts to this committee! Unlike the now deceased former President, this President has given us absolute authority to make all final determinations about the appropriate actions to be made for the preservation of the global civilization. Our first action will be to completely dismantle and permanently abolish the meaningless healthcare services being offered to individuals designated for relocation. That’ll instantly free-up an additional 300 thousand persons. The relocations will begin in exactly 5 hours and 32 minutes. We have more than enough time to instruct the transporters to only transport those individuals that their scanners deem to be healthy and able to reproduce. Once the coastal regions are evacuated, the United Troops will sweep across the country in search of healthy and reproductive individuals between the ages of 9 to 35 years of age. The entire East Coast will not be evacuated. We will only evacuate those who are healthy and able to reproduce. We will not evacuate any children under the age of 9, any pregnant women, the sick, the elderly, anyone over the age of 35, or anyone who refuses to procreate with the opposite sex. In every structure where the healthy and reproductive are located, all the other occupants shall be told to wait on the next bus. The Naval Troops are hereby prohibited from transporting any individuals from foreign countries who are unhealthy or unable to reproduce. There shall by no means enter into this country any individual who is unhealthy or unable to reproduce. This shall include, but not be limited to: The blind, the deaf, the maimed, the dwarfed, the diseased, and the mentally ill.” The general picked up the secure receiver, dialed a number, and said, “The new eagle has landed! Destroy the cellular systems and all the electronic communication networks!… Right!… Right!… Good!” The general slammed the secure receiver down, and said, “In just a few minutes, the general public of the western hemisphere of planet earth will lose the ability to utilize all forms of technological communication devices. The level one Bar-Enash devices will be passed out to every single person in this country on the inside of their first ration boxes. We’ll be able to give the survivors orders through their devices.”

Dallas, Texas

“Surely you were dreaming Robert.” Rebecca raised her arm, and said, “Hold on Aunt Meg! This hospital conducts some serious studies into this type of stuff.” She then looked at the male nurse, and blurted out, “Find the doctors!” The man bolted out the door as Jasmine sadly looked up at her father, and said, “Daddy, somebody shot the President. We saw her bleeding on T.V., and now she’s dead.” Roberts eyes widened, as he said, “Look in that top drawer and see if there’s a Bible in there.” Tiffany moved her hand off of Jasmines shoulder, and lunged towards the small table at the side of Roberts bed. When Tiffany opened the drawer, she was so surprised to see a Bible sitting next to a Quran, as she handed Robert the Bible, she said, “How did you know that was there? Did Jesus tell you?” Robert laughed, and said, “No. No. No. I know that there is a group of Christians who call themselves “The Gideons”, and they place Bibles in hospitals, motels, and county jails, all over this country. As Jasmine and Tiffany both said, “Ohhh”, Robert opened the Bible and turned to the last few pages. Just as he opened his mouth to speak, the door flew open, and an Asian man in a white coat came charging into the room, followed by an Asian woman in a white coat, and the male nurse. “Mr. Williams, we hear you might of had an out of body experience!” Robert made eye contact with the male doctor who spoke to him, and said, “Not “might of”, I did have an out of body experience. I came out of my body, out of this hospital, out of this world, and out of this realm.” The male doctor responded, “Before you came “out of this realm”, which direction did you travel to leave the hospital?” “I went up.” “And did you look down at your body as you were going up?” “I couldn’t stop looking down at my body as I was going up.” “Other than your body, did you notice anything else that seemed strange or out of place?” “No… not that I can think of…” Robert frowned, looked down for a brief moment, as he thought carefully, and then gasped as he looked up at the doctor, saying, “I saw a traffic light!” Both doctors looked straight at each other with similar looks of shock, as Robert looked up at the ceiling, and said, “For what it’s worth, this may sound strange, but I think there’s a traffic light on that ledge way up there.” Jasmine and Tiffany both looked up, as Megan stared at Robert with a look of concern, that instantly transformed into shock, when the female doctor said, “There “is” a traffic light up there on that ledge! Well, a very large and realistic picture of one… Please understand, out of body experiences are actually a whole lot more common than most people think. Our physical bodies are electric. You may of discovered that by rubbing a balloon on your head! The entire body of all our electric energy gives rise to another body of pure magnetic energy. The coexistence of the two bodies gives rise to an electromagnetic body called “The Astral Body”. Aside from our Astral Body, we also exist in another form called our “I-consciousness”, which is the most basic essence of who we truly are. The I-consciousness is the exact point of our awareness of existence. Right now, we are fully aware of our existence as a physical body. This is because of all the electric activity transpiring within our physical bodies that keeps our I-consciousness attracted to our physical bodies in such a form of occupation that it seems that “we” are the physical body, when in actuality, “we” are within. When the electrical activity, or, as others like to call it, “our life”, ”our life-force”, or “our energy”, is weakened, for one reason or another, the bond between the electromagnetic body and the physical body is weakened, and the two separate. When this occurs, the electromagnetic body, which is the Astral body, literally slips away from the physical body, and hovers at a distance. Each and every time our Astral body detaches from our physical body, our I-consciousness also detaches from the physical body, and “we” literally leave our bodies. Most-times, we are totally unaware of this detachment that takes place each and every time we fall asleep, fall unconscious, fall into a coma, or, on the onset of the final separation which occurs during the event that we have come to call “death”. Sometimes, we are totally aware of the detachment, and when we detach with an awareness of the separation, we come into the awareness of our occupation of the Astral Body, just the same as if we were occupying the physical body. When people perform the detachment by their own will, the act is called “Astral Projection”. When the conscious separation occurs spontaneously, the event is called an “Out of Body Experience”. And when the separation occurs because the electric energy in the physical body is weakened due to some form of trauma, the conscious separation is called a “Near Death Experience”. Studies into these unseen forces have led to the development of technology that can transfer the I-consciousness from one physical body to another. The current issue is the Astral Body. It seems to have a mind of it’s own. Each time we’ve successfully transferred an I-consciousness, the Astral Body detaches from the I-consciousness, and the two bodies disappear as the patient dies. We are on the verge of creating an artificial Astral Body that will have the ability to transport our I-consciousness into a whole new physical body. In so doing, we will never die! Instead, we will just purchase brand new bodies, move into them, and live forever.” Jasmine looked up at her father and said, “Daddy, is the I-conciseness our soul? And the Astral Body our spirit that we receive from God?” Robert laughed and said, “Only the spirit of The Most High God could’ve revealed such wisdom to you, because, I can assure you, these college educated doctors with their doctorate degrees would’ve never been able to come to such a conclusion in all their years of studies. What she calls an “Out of Body Experience”, is what the bible calls “Moving In The Spirit”. She calls the soul the “I-consciousness”, and the spirit, she calls it “The Astral Body”. What truly occurs during what she calls an “Out of Body Experience” is simply our soul moving out of our body in the spirit.” The female doctor gave a nervous smile and said, “Well, of course, different people speak different languages, and we all have different words for the same thing, and we have different ways of explaining lifes processes, but we all still know it’s the same thing right?” Robert shook his head in disagreement, and said, ”Not necessarily. This Astral Projection that you speak of is clearly the doorway to the concrete evidence of the existence of our soul and the Spirit of God. It’s an experiment that anyone can conduct to come to the full knowledge that we are in fact souls that can exist outside of these physical bodies. These things direct attention to the accuracy of the biblical testimonies that direct attention to the fact that we are truly something other than flesh and bones, and we will one day come out of these bodies in full awareness of the departure. We will not just go into another body! If you would’ve said such a preposterous thing to the late great Albert Einstein, he would’ve called you insane! You are a doctor for goodness sakes! You have a full comprehension of the existence of your soul, but you think it has nothing to do with what the bible says will come out of this physical realm and stand before The Terror of The Lord on judgment day? Do you not understand that the day of judgment will be the day of the determination of where your soul will spend eternity? Your lack of comprehension is appalling! But you don’t stand alone! Most people remain unaware of this type of evidence, but you don’t make the widespread state of ignorance any better by using such confusing terminologies that inform without educating and therefore keep people in the dark about their internal evidence of an eternal form of existence!” The male doctor clasped his hands and said, “Mr. Williams, we most sincerely do apologize. We highly respect your religious beliefs that we can clearly see you are very passionate about. We honestly came to confirm that you did in fact have an O.BE., which we now know for a fact that you did, especially because you identified with accuracy the picture that we intentionally placed in this room to test those who claim to of endured such experiences, and with that, we are also interested in knowing what else you were able to observe while you were out of your body. I see you are holding a bible. Is there something you would like to share with us? Do you think your experience might of been some type of divine intervention?” Robert looked down at the bible and began scanning the verses as he said, ”Revelation chapter one verse ten tells us John was in the spirit on the Lords Day, when he turned and saw an angel of God. The Lords Day is actually over a thousand of our days. It’s the period in which The Lord will destroy His creation. John was, as you would say, “Having an Out of Body Experience”, and while he was out of his body, an angel of God approached his soul and revealed the future to him. As his soul received the Revelation, his body wrote it down. The very first verse in the Revelation tells us God gave it to Jesus. God is in the spiritual realm. When He gave Jesus the Revelation, He gave it to him in the spiritual realm. Jesus gave the Revelation to his angel, and the angel gave it to John, whose soul was at that time in the spirit. Johns’ flesh was incarcerated on an island in what is now the Mediterranean Sea, north of Africa. John was there in the year A.D. 90, and he was in exile for preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ.” Tiffany said, “What’s the Revelation Mr. Williams? We never went over this.” Robert laughed and said, “We should’ve, and now we will.” As Robert spoke, a small crowd started gathering at the door being drawn to his thunderous and authoritative voice. As the people listened, Robert said, “Time is a tiny fragment of our Creators mind. The past is His memory. The present is a figment of His imagination. The future is His will. The future is literally what God wants to come into existence. The only way we can know the future before it transforms into the present is if God Himself reveals it to us, and that’s exactly what the Revelation is. God revealed the future to His servant John, and what John saw is what he wrote down on a document that became the last book of the bible, “The Revelation”. God showed John so deep into the future, he saw the end, and he even saw the everlasting beginning after the end.” Tiffany asked, “So what’s in the future?” A man stepped into the room from the small crowd and began speaking through a smile, saying, “Noone understands the Revelation. It’s esoteric. It was only intended to be understood by a few. It’s symbolical, allegorical, metaphorical, and way too spiritual for anyone to be able to say anything about it with any type of accuracy. You don’t need to understand Johns’ Revelation to be saved. All you need to understand is Gods love for us so you can have the personal relationship with Him that will bring you many forms of salvation from all sorts of difficulties.” Robert blankly stared at the man and said, “That’s exactly why Jesus told us beforehand that the gate is straight that leads to life, the path is narrow, and there will only be a few who find it. The reason is very simple, there are only a few who are truly searching.” Robert looked at everyone looking at him, and said, “Did you hear what this man just said? Noone can understand the Revelation? It was only intended to be understood by a few? If that foolishness was the case, John would’ve never been instructed to send it to “seven” different churches that, on a map, all pointed to the island that John received the Revelation on.” ”Ha!” The man busted out laughing and said, “The churches pointed to the island? Is this the crazy ward? Listen man, I’m a pastor, and I hate to break it to you, but your wrong.” Robert shook his head to the negative, and said, “Why don’t you just do some searching? As a matter of fact…” Robert flipped through the bible looking at the maps, and then said, “Here we are!… Let me see that pen.” As the man hesitated to reach for the gold pen hanging out his shirt pocket, the female doctor promptly handed Robert a pen she had in her pocket. “Thank you.” Robert quietly drew on the map, and then said, “You see, today, we call this land “Turkey”, but in the days when John was on the island of Patmos, this land was called “Lydia”, which is little Asia, or, more appropriately, “Asia Minor”. You see Patmos in the Mediterranean Sea? That’s where John was when he received the Revelation. Now look at the positions of the locations of the seven churches where he was instructed to send Greek hand written copies of the Revelation. The first two churches, Ephesus and Smyrna, are perfectly aligned with the island of Patmos. Then, we draw a line from Ephesus to Laodicea, Laodicea to Philadelphia, Philadelphia to Sardis, Sardis to Thyatira, Thyatira to Pergamum, Pergamum to Smyrna, and from Smyrna back to Ephesus. What do you see?” The man nodded his head impressed, as Tiffany said, ”I see a bow and an arrow!” Robert nodded and said, “Just imagine…” He then turned to a fresh map of the same region and said, “If you think that’s something, look at what happens when we draw a line following the order of the churches as they were mentioned in the book of Revelation. We go from Ephesus, to Smyrna, to Pergamum, to Thyatira, to Sardis, to Philadelphia, and we stop at Laodicea. We draw a line from the island of Patmos to the church in Ephesus, and what do you see?” The people at the door started pouring into the room, but everyone stared at the design puzzled. Jasmine finally said, “Is it a sickle?” Robert laughed and said, “It sure does look like one does’nt it? A sickle is a device that is used for reaping, as in the reaping rapture of a church.” The man frowned and said, “The word rapture does’nt appear at all in the bible.” Robert responded, “Who ever said it did? Are you not the pastor of a group of people who follow Christ? Was it not Christ who planted the seed of the crop that he will soon return to reap? Is not the action of the act of reaping called a “rapture”? Pastor?…” Robert shook his head while staring at what he drew in the bible. He then raised the bible towards the crowd and said, ”Discoveries like this can only be made by doing searches into the truth.” Robert put the bible down and continued saying, “The problem is, most people believe in one of the many lies that they have been deceived into believing is the truth, and they therefore feel no need to search for what they believe they have already found. Some people just don’t understand the truth, and they’re too lazy to do the mental work that needs to be done to receive the understanding of the truth. They really make their eternally fatal mistake when they give up searching for the truth. That’s when they settle for an abundance of ignorance, or some form of twisted version of the truth, or in most situations, they settle for a boldfaced lie. I can assure you, just as the apostle Paul wrote to Timothy in verse 15 and16 of the bible book of Second Timothy, the whole entire bible is able to make you wise for salvation by giving you faith in Christ Jesus. All scripture is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness, that the servant of The Lord may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.” Tiffany excitedly said, “So what’s in the future? What did the angel show John?” Robert leaned toward Tiffany and said, “It showed him a place where people don’t get attacked by their own hearts!” The crowd gave a roar of laughter as a voice called out from the hallway and shouted, “Is that Mr. Williams from “The Bible With Mr. Williams” radio show? “I know” I know that voice!” Robert laughed, held up the bible, and began quoting his mantra that he always starts his bible show off with, saying, “This is my bible! There are many others like it, but this one is mine! I believe in the words of this bible, all the words of this bible, and nothing but the seven hundred and ninety one thousand, three hundred and twenty eight words in this bible. I believe the words in this bible lead to everlasting life, and all other books lead astray.” The crowd broke out in applause as Tiffany sunk her head into her shoulders, pouted her lips, scrunched up her face, and sadly said, ”What’s in the future Mr. Williams?” Robert busted out laughing at how Tiffany’s little face reminded him of her late father, who was his good friend. Robert frowned into the distance as he inhaled through his nostrils, and as the applause silenced, he said, “Not one split second will ever cease! You’ll no longer shed tears! You’ll no longer feel pain! You’ll no longer be afraid of anything… There will no longer be anything to fear! You’ll no longer yawn. You’ll no longer feel tired. You’ll no longer go to sleep. No one will ever die. We will always be alive forever. There will never be any night. It will forever be the most beautiful day “forever!” The everlasting day will not be illuminated by the sun, or any man made artificial light… It will be illuminated by the brilliant shining glory of the The Most High God! You’ll finally get to see His face, and look directly into His glistening eyes. Jesus will always be there, and happiness will last for all of eternity.” A voice shouted from the packed hallway, “Man I can’t hear you man! You got people out here wanna hear you and can’t hear you man! People thinking the world coming to an end and they wanna get right with God! Can you come out to the waiting room where everybody can hear you?” Robert immediately put the bible down and began tearing the wires off of his body as the female doctor said, “You appear to of made a full recovery Mr. Williams, but we still would like to learn more about your experience while you were… uhh… moving in the spirit” Robert yanked the last wire off of his body, stood to his feet, and said, “Meet me in the waiting room!”

Meet Robert in the waiting room by assisting with the completion of the publication of Physical Extinction, End Time Prophecy, by funding the gofundme, directing attention to the site, and encouraging others to assist. Michael entrusted us with his words on the promise that we would pursue publication independent of any form of established publishing company, and we will respect his wishes, but this bestows upon us the shockingly expensive monetary burden of getting his 400,000 words typed, edited, and printed in the sum of at least 10,000 soft cover copies. If you enjoyed the first 21 pages, and you feel Physical Extinction, End Time Prophecy, should surely be mass produced, go fund the completion of the publication at ( https://www.gofundme.com/f/go-fund-quot-physical-extinction-end-time-prophecyquot ), and feel free to leave a comment on the blog, and read the comments that were left. Follow us on Facebook at ( https://www.facebook.com/Physical-Extinction-End-Time-Prophecy-101061684671552/ ), on Twitter at ( https://twitter.com/StopThe25592931 ), and on Instagram at ( https://www.instagram.com/PhysicalExtinction/ ).
