The Lands That Time Forgot
Contentions between the lands of the Seven Cities and the lands of
Salatis lead to war, which results in the nuclear destruction of the
Seven Cities of Tibar and the subsequent earthquakes and volcanoes that
swallowed the great city of Kamari and all of the surrounding islands,
giving birth to the legend of Atlantis. Before the great destruction,
the remaining Children of Light who had remained faithful are forewarned
of the imminent devastation and instructed by Elohim the Mother in their
dreams to leave their homes, undetected by airship, and go to the
islands of Guache, where the Great Library of Knowledge resides. For
many generations, they expand in peace and prosperity, living fully in
the light of Elohim. However, due to their advanced knowledge in the
sciences, they begin to meddle in areas they should not, so Elohim
intervenes in a most surprising manner.
And it came to pass that the people derided the words of the prophet and
hearkened not unto them. Instead, they departed in anger, each to their
During the months that followed the tides of war rose, both in the lands
of Salatis and in the lands of the Seven Cities.
In the cities of Celine, Patona, Iironth, and Ubarzaz, which had been
created in the high mountains across the world at the time of the great
migration from Salatis and the establishment of the Seven Cities, the
people were restless and anxious because of the talk of war between the
Kamarians—the homeland of Salatis—and the Seven Cities of the Tibarians.
For years, they had tried to remain neutral as the tensions between the
Kamarians and the Tibarians escalated, but now they were being
threatened by both sides and pressured to align with one or the other or
suffer the consequences.
As violence and intimidation increased, in equal proportion did the
people fall away from the teachings of Elohim, and the ways of the
Elohim were no longer in their hearts or minds, save for a few in each
city who remained true to the light.
In Kamari and the land of Salatis, Dlamraka was chosen by the people to
be the supreme leader, and with their backing, he intensified his
efforts to convert the Oolarian technology, which they had inherited,
into vessels and means for war.
The Seven Cities of Tibar were not idle while Dlamraka was busy
marshaling his lands for war. They too turned their technology into
engines of destruction, and it was inevitable that once created, these
mutual engines of war would be used.
And it came to pass that each side began to make probing incursions
against the other and to attack and destroy each other’s airships and
outposts when it could be done subtly, without evidence left behind of
the source or likelihood.
But each side knew it was not by happenstance that their airships and
crews began to disappear. Nor did they imagine it was barbarians that
raided and destroyed their outposts.
Soon, open warfare commenced, and it was the lands of Salatis that began
to suffer defeat upon defeat, for their population was dispersed upon
hundreds of islands, which, due to their isolation and relatively small
populations, were not easily defended against the airships of the Seven
Many tens of thousands were killed, and hundreds of thousands of
refugees from the outer islands began to stream into Kamari and to the
main island of Salatis.
The people clamored for Dlamraka to protect them, but a few called upon
Elohim to guide them in the light and the right.
It seemed for a time that the Kamarians would go down to certain defeat,
for the Tibarians had moved rapidly once they committed to war and had
destroyed much of the Kamarian air fleet before they were fully aware
that they were under full-scale attack.
But Dlamraka was not worried, for his scientists were on the verge of
creating a new super-weapon that would annihilate the Seven Cites, and
he rallied his people to be valiant in their defense of the homeland,
for though destruction rained all around them, he promised victory was
almost theirs. And they believed him.
And despite their horrific loss of life and property on the outer
islands, they did mount a more-stubborn defense on Salatis and held the
Tibarians at bay insomuch that the beautiful city of Kamari remained
relatively untouched by destruction.
However the military leaders of the Kamarians were angry and frustrated
at their inability to wreck equal havoc upon the Tibarians. Because the
Seven Cities were high in the mountains, they were much more impregnable
and unassailable than the dispersed low islands of the Kamarians.
But then Dlamraka went to them and showed them the weapon of the Sun
that his scientists had almost completed, and then they understood his
calm in the storm of destruction around them. And they too smiled with
evil smirks of glee at the destruction they imagined would soon befall
the Seven Cities of Tibar.
The Prophet and the Council of the Twelve continued each day to go into
the city and preach the light of Elohim to try to turn their people back
to the light, but it was of no avail. Those few families who hearkened
unto their words had already sought sanctuary inside the Holy Temple and
upon its grounds. But the rest of the Kamarians closed their ears to
their words and turned their backs upon them.
And it came to pass that the Holy Mother came to the prophet in a dream
as he slept. And she came also in a like manner to the leader of those
who still followed the light in the Seven Cities and the cities of
Celine, Patona, Iironth, and Ubarzaz.
And Elohim the Mother spoke, saying, “The time has come for you who are
still Children of Light to leave your homes and flee with haste, for the
destruction of your cities and your lands is imminent.
Take only what you can carry upon your back and leave by the evening of
the morrow. Embark upon your speediest ships of the air. Lock your
compass upon the isles of Guache, for it is only there that you shall
survive and prosper as guardians of the light and the Great Library of
Save for this group of islands and the people upon them and the library
within its womb, all else of your people in all other places shall be
destroyed by their own hands and a consequence of their actions.
You must travel in a most circuitous route, even if you must circle the
entire globe, and this that you will neither be destroyed by those at
war or followed to your destination.
And upon the isles of Guache, the Children of Light shall be blessed
with the peace and prosperity until the time of their fulfillment upon
the Earth. So be it.”
The words of the Holy Mother were shocking to all who had heard them in
their dreams, but they doubted them not, and with steadfast voice and
sincerity that none could doubt, they related all that they had been
told to their brothers and sisters of the light.
And each of those who were told the revelation of the Holy Mother prayed
on their own to Elohim and received confirmation of the truth of the
Therefore, all did as they had been forewarned to do, and that evening
from Kamari and each of the Seven Cities and also the cities of Celine,
Patona, Iironth, and Ubarzaz, airships took to the skies and shot off
into the night in many different directions. None were captured or
And in a single day, all of the Children of Light that had remained at
any of the former cities of light upon Earth vanished.
And it came to pass that so much had the people of the cities forgotten
Elohim and the teachings of Elohim that it was not even noticed that a
few followers of Elohim had disappeared.
In Kamari, seven days passed before one of the officers of Dlamraka
commented casually to him and fellow officers that neither the prophet
nor any of the Council of the Twelve had been preaching in the streets
for some days.
Rather than be concerned about this, everyone laughed, made jokes, and
generally agreed that having the religious people keep out of sight and
quiet was the most helpful thing they could do.
Thirteen days after the Children of Light had departed, Dlamraka called
a meeting of his highest military officers and revealed that the Sun
weapon was completed and had already been mounted to his personal
“Let us see a demonstration,” implored one of his officers.
“No, no, that is not possible,” cautioned Dlamraka. “It is too powerful
of a weapon to demonstrate on anything other than an actual target and
that can be no less than a city, for the destruction it will unleash
will obliterate everything as far as your eye can see.”
His words were incomprehensible to almost everyone present, for until
that moment, the most powerful weapon they had ever seen was the Takka
Beam, which could do little more than destroying a ship or blasting
large holes in buildings.
Then Dlamraka outlined his plan to annihilate the Seven Cities. “But
they are still our brothers,” protested some of his officers. “We cannot
use a weapon such as this upon them that will completely obliterate them
and the great cities they have built from the face of the Earth.”
“And what of the spoils of victory?” asked another. “True victory would
not be to completely destroy our former brothers, who are now our
enemies, but to humiliate them and take their lands and their wives, and
their cities and their wealth.”
“Is that what they are doing to you?” screamed Dlamraka. “We have
innumerable refugees in our city. Many of our outlying towns have been
completely destroyed. There has been no mercy shown. Can there be any
doubt that if given the opportunity the Tibarians would exterminate us
all and our cites as well?
No, your sentiments are noble, my friends, but they cannot be given into
with such an implacable enemy as the Tibarians have become.”
With such words, Dlamraka swayed those who counseled restraint, until
even with misgivings, all were in agreement that they would attack and
destroy the Tibarians until there were none remaining.
And it came to pass that five days later, Dlamraka boarded his airship,
and accompanied by the six fastest ships remaining in the fleet, cloaked
in invisibility and piloted by his most loyal officers, they sped into
the night sky on their deadly mission of doom.
Each of the seven ships carried a
Death Arrow, as they called it, one for each of the Seven Cities.
It was not many hours before they were approaching the cities high in
the Tibar Mountains. Their ships had been detected once they were over
the lands of the Seven Cities, but due to their rapid speed, they were
unable to be pinpointed or intercepted.
Dlamraka’s eyes were wide with an almost crazed anticipation, and it
seemed to be with great joy that he gave the order to “shoot the
At his command, a Death Arrow was shot out from beneath his ship and
from beneath each of the six ships that accompanied him. Silently, they
shot forth with blinding speed, making no sound other than the wind
whistling mournfully through the tail fins and leaving no trail, each
flying with unerring accuracy toward the heart of one of the Seven
Immediately after releasing their arrows, all seven ships banked sharply
and headed away from the Seven Cites as rapidly as possible.
But looking back out their rear portals, the Kamarians saw seven
brilliant flashes, followed by immense columns of fire that mushroomed
into enormous clouds.
Seeing this, they knew they had succeeded and that the Seven Cities and
all the people in them were no more. With that poignant understanding,
several of the officers became overwhelmed with grief and hung their
heads, and many wept as they realized for the first time the enormity
and irreversibility of the horrific action they had just taken.
Even Dlamraka was quiet and reflective as he realized that in an
instant, they had killed untold numbers of people and destroyed
magnificent cities that had taken many generations to build.
As their airships landed in Kamari, the men disembarked without
enthusiasm, and none spoke of the terrible deed they had just
accomplished. In truth, most were greatly ashamed and sorrowful, for
they knew they could never right the wrong they had done.
But they did not have long to contemplate their sorrows or evil deeds.
The immense explosions they had unleashed, which had obliterated seven
great cities, had also sent waves of shock and tumult through Earth, and
these resounded within it like a bell.
And Earth shifted and moved within. And suddenly all across the planet,
earthquakes began to rumble and volcanoes began to spew forth hot red
Upon the islands of Salatis, death and destruction came suddenly and
without end, for all of their mountains were volcanoes with every island
composed of one or more peaks that had slept peacefully, even before the
days of Noah. But now they awakened in a great anger because of the bell
that had rung inside the Earth when the arrows had destroyed the Seven
In a single day and a night, the island of Salatis and almost all of the
islands of the Kamarians exploded or sank into the sea, wracked by
immense earthquakes and buried by boiling hot lava.
And like the Tibarians who had lived for generation upon generation in
the Seven Cities, the Kamarians, in all of their cities, upon all of
their islands, were no more.
The distant, independent cities of Celine, Patona, Iironth, and Ubarzaz
also experienced great destruction because of the shaking of Earth.
Though many people were killed, many also lived and the cities survived
for a time.
But with extensive damage and loss of life and trade extinguished with
the great cities of Salatis and the Seven Cities of Tibar, the remaining
four independent cities languished, and within one hundred years, all
were overrun by barbarian hordes, their cities destroyed, and the
survivors taken into slavery.
But amidst a world in upheaval, the islands of Gauche were an oasis of
calm. The arriving airships carrying Children of Light from all over the
Earth were greeted by the few Children of Light already inhabiting the
islands with joy and welcome.
The new immigrants quickly assimilated into one people, for all still
followed the teachings of Elohim and they immediately felt the pull of
brotherhood and sisterhood as Children of Light.
On their one hundredth year upon the islands of Guache, an Oolarian Ark
ship descended from the sky, and once again, the millennial celebration
between the Children of Light of Earth and the Children of Light from
the stars was reborn, only now to occur upon every hundredth year.
During the next millennia, the islands of Guache remained isolated from
the rest of the world, except for scientific-exploration parties. They
were completely self-sufficient, and having been informed by Elohim of
the complete destruction of all of their former cities, they sought no
trade with the barbarians beyond the shores of their islands, and they
lived peacefully and fully in the light and teachings of the Elohim,
save for the guilt some felt at not bringing the light of Elohim to the
The greatest task of the Savasi, or
Blessed Ones as they came to
call themselves, was the care and expansion of the Great Library of
Knowledge, setting to record within crystals and stones all knowledge of
every science, the recipes for their longevity and healing elixirs, and
diverse secrets of their ancestors and their spiritual powers.
During the succeeding generations, Savasi exploration parties went to
the far corners of Earth, making detailed studies of the plants,
animals, cultures, histories, and ways of the various primitive tribes.
All knowledge was encoded into either rounded, bi-color elongated stones
or sharp-sided, clear crystals. Upon paper of any kind, there was
nothing written of consequence or importance.
Besides the fact that organic materials would decay with time and
eventually turn to dust, the rocks and crystals allowed the Savasi to
record a great amount of information in small and compact containers
that would seem nothing more than innocuous rocks to anyone unaware of
how to unlock the secret information stored within their structure.
And amazing knowledge was stored within the rocks and crystals; not only
all the knowledge of Earth and its true history, but also all the
knowledge of the Oolarians and of all of the known worlds inhabited by
myriads of civilizations beyond Earth.
After a thousand years had passed, it was decided that some barbarians
would be brought to the islands to help in the menial tasks that the
Savasi loathed needing to take the time for. In exchange, the barbarians
would be taught the path of light and given greater knowledge to raise
themselves above the level of their creation.
An expedition was undertaken that went out to several tribes of
barbarians. Once contact was made and goods traded, the Savasi tried to
convince the barbarians to come with them into their airships and be
taken to a new life of plenty and peace, but none were interested in
leaving their lands or flying in ships in the sky.
For thirty-three years, the Savasi persistently went forth to various
tribes of barbarians in many places around the world, but convinced none
to come with them to their islands.
Finally, at the end of the thirty-third year, when they were about ready
to abandon the idea of bringing barbarians to their islands, two tribes
agreed to accompany them.
Both were tribes they had long had contact with, who had become familiar
and trusting of the Savasi.
One tribe of ninety-three adults and their children lived on the
continent near the sea that had been the location of the islands of
Salatis. The other, comprising 110 adults and their children came from
the far north of the great continent.
Within one generation, the barbarians were as civilized as the Savasi
and they came to be known as the Gersan or
Though their physical appearance was very similar to that of the Savasi,
they were in fact a different species, and both the Savasi and the
Gersans were forbidden by the word of Elohim, through the prophet, to be
married to one another or have physical relations, because it was not
possible for them to create children from their union.
Nevertheless, there were some Savasi who did not agree with the decree
that the two species should not mix, and in secret collaboration with
rogue geneticists over several years, they succeeded in changing the
genetic template of some of the Gersan women, successfully enabling them
to bear children from a Savasi mate.
They were gleeful in their success and despite the hesitant misgivings
of some, most were anxious to announce their breakthrough and fully
expected to be lauded as great scientists and pioneers.
Upon announcing that they had succeeded in creating genetic
modifications enabling Gersan women to mate with Savasi men, some people
did laud their achievement. But the far greater number were shocked that
the men had so blatantly disobeyed an edict of Elohim to not have
physical relations with the Gersan.
And the prophet Dilallon came to them and said unto them, “That you have
disobeyed a commandment from Elohim is a serious mistake, especially
that in your error, you have chosen to override the template Elohim gave
for the Gersan, which is an unthinkable wrong.”
But Letav, the leader of the geneticists, dismissed the words of the
prophet and said unto him, “You speak foolishly, sir. We change the
templates of the flowers to make them brighter in color. We change the
template of the bees to make them produce more honey and allow them to
live longer lives. For this, we are not upbraided but encouraged and
lauded. Why then should we be condemned in the case of the Gersan?
We were not commanded to refrain from changing the template of the
Gersan, but told to not have relations with them because a union of a
Gersan with a Savasi could not produce children. We have now made that
possible, so the prior edict needs be void. No one has been hurt or
taken advantage of in this, so how can you find fault and come upon us
with such harsh words?”
The prophet shook his head and looked first upon the ground and then up
into the heavens. Then he spoke, saying, “How wrong you are, Letav, to
think that no one is hurt by your actions. Do you think that given the
opportunity to mate with a Savasi, any of the Gersan women so chosen
will instead tell you "no," that they would prefer to find a mate among
the poorer, more-simple-minded Gersan men?
It will not be long before all the Gersan women are the second, third or
fourth wives of a Savasi, while the Gersan men will find not even one
single female amongst them to fight over for a mate. Would not these
wonderful, kind Gersan men be hurt by your altering of their females,
even to the dying out of their lineages?
And if you find a way to allow Gersan men to mate successfully with
Savasi women, do you think that even one Savasi woman will desire to do
that? For the Gersan men are not as comely as the women. So again, the
Gersan men are left to a fate of solitude, loneliness, and the end of
We have always been encouraged by the Elohim to modify their simple
creations such as plants and insects to better suit them to our needs,
whether by hybridization or genetic modification, it is the same.
But to fundamentally change the template of a Savasi, made in the image
of Elohim, or a Gersan, made near the image of Elohim, is to tell our
Holy Father and Mother that you think you can recreate their highest
creations in a superior way. In this you, mock God, a very dangerous
path to take, for God will not be mocked and remain idle.
Therefore, I implore you to repent of this error in your thinking and
undo the harm you have done before it creates ramifications that cannot
Hearing the words of the prophet, Letav laughed and then laughed some
more, as did his friends who were standing with him. And he answered,
saying, “You are stuck in the mud of the past, dear prophet. Maybe God
once spoke to you, but if you cannot see the simple logic of what we
have done, then I am not sure you still hear God today. Therefore, I
will politely have to disagree with your point of view, and we shall
carry on as we have.”
Hearing this, the prophet was greatly saddened, and he said unto them,
“I hoped to reason with you and bring you to repentance, but if you
insist on persisting on this course, I must go before the Council of
Elders and clearly state the position of Elohim that the force of our
laws will then compel you to abandon your reckless foolishness, even if
your respect for Elohim does not.”
True to his word, the very next day, Dilallon came accompanied by his
Council of Twelve, six men and six women, and spoke to the Council of
Elders, also six men and six women, who ruled the islands of Guache, and
requested in the name of Elohim that they pass and enforce a law
prohibiting the genetic modification of Savasi or Gersan, except for
things that improved their health and did not interfere with the sacred
powers of reproduction laid down in a template by Elohim.
Each of the Council of Twelve also spoke before the Council of Elders,
in support of the words of Dilallon.
The Council of Elders then heard testimony from Letav and his fellow
geneticists and supporters, and after five days of deliberation, they
called all the parties to hear their decision. And though only a few
dozen people attended the hearing in person, all the people of the
islands of Guache waited in anxious anticipation to hear the outcome.
The chief of the Elders spoke, saying, “Upon careful and prayerful
deliberation and a review of many scriptures from the records of the
prophets, by a 7–5 vote, we support the actions of Letav and do not feel
there is sufficient cause, despite the words of the prophet Dilallon, to
create a law preventing the actions of the geneticists.
If they are in error and acting against the will of Elohim, as has been
asserted by the prophet Dilallon, then Elohim shall be their judge, not
In our eyes, their argument that we were not forbidden as a people to
manipulate the template of the Gersan women to make them fertile to the
seed of the Savasi men is not refuted by anything we have read in the
records of the prophets, and as the current prophet is still living, it
has not yet been decided which of his words shall be deemed scripture,
therefore at this time, none of his words can carry the weight of Elohim
with certainty, though he speaks in their name.”
Among the vast majority of the population, both Savasi and Gersan, there
was incomprehension and shocked disbelief at the decision of the Council
of Elders. Nevertheless, their decision became the law of the land, and
the geneticists proceeded on with their work.
The prophet gathered with the Council of Twelve and, with prayer and
thought and earnest discussion, sought to still find a way that they
might counter the path the geneticists had chosen and the judges of the
land had upheld; for in all things they knew they must support the
commandments of Elohim above the decrees of men.
The Council of Twelve and the prophet formed a Circle of Power so that
they could create a group connection to Elohim, and they called upon the
great dormant power stored in the Earth to come forth and connect them
At their command, a mighty whirlwind arose from the ground and lifted
and expanded up high into the sky beyond the sight of men, engulfing
those at its base.
And Elohim the Father came into each of their minds as they stood, one
and all the same, in the Circle of Power within the whirlwind. And the
Father spoke unto them, saying, “Precious and righteous Children of
Light, our hearts do have great joy in you. You are greater than the
world in which you live and greater than many among whom you live.
Like unto Enoch, you will be taken in three days and be no more upon the
Earth, you and all of your families, even to the last of the Savasi.
But it is not to the Celestine Realms that you will come at this time as
did Enoch, for you still have much to discover and great works to do in
mortality, for neither you nor any of your people are perfect, as were
Enoch and his people.
The Earth is no longer a proper home for the Savasi. The gap of
knowledge and ability between you and the others upon the Earth has
become so great that your people have begun to give into the temptations
to make themselves creators even as the Elohim.
But they create not from love and for the betterment of all, but only to
satisfy their own egos and selfish desires. Therefore, they take upon
themselves the creation power without vision, love, or devotion to their
They take unto themselves the power of the gods, but with
irresponsibility like foolish children.
Like in the days of Noah, three days hence, an Oolarian
Ark ship shall come for you
and all of your people. You shall be taken to another earth where the
people are more advanced and equal to you in their knowledge and
technology. There you shall continue your mortal journey. None shall
Seal the Library of Knowledge and all of its branches safely beneath the
Earth that its wisdom may come forth again to another generation of
Children of Light; long after all that man has now built upon the Earth
has past into forgotten memories.
Gather everything you possess that you will not carry with you and place
them on the small isle desolate Isle of Holaq, where they and the island
be consumed by the ocean on the day of your departure. Prepare now, for
your time is short. So be it.”
With those words firmly imprinted upon the minds of all within the
whirlwind, it quickly fell back down into the ground and disappeared.
The following day, the prophet again appeared before the Council of
Elders accompanied by the Council of Twelve and related to them all that
Elohim the Father had told unto them.
Now it was the judges who were shocked, and the chief of the Council of
Elders, Merisherlas, opened her hands in disbelief and said, “It is an
impossible thing for all of the Savasi to leave in three days. What
about our homes and our lands and our pets? And what of our exploration
parties that are in far-off lands? And what type of stewards would we be
to leave the Gersan here to fend for themselves and our lands and
property to wither without our care?”
“I simply will not go,” added another Elder. “The Oolarians can come and
all of you who wish to leave may do so, but I like it here just fine and
I am not going anywhere.”
“I think our prophet means well, but he is getting old and touched in
the head,” added another Elder. “Surely Elohim did not tell him such a
Frabara, one of the Council of Twelve, stepped forth at the words of the
judge and proclaimed, “It is not the prophet alone who heard the
commands of Elohim, but all twelve of us as well. And each heard every
word spoken the same. What Dilallon has spoken shall come to pass. To
remain was not an option given to any of us, so it would be best if you
prepared to depart, for surely, at the appointed time, you shall
The prophet again stepped forward. He thanked Frabara for his words, and
then spoke again to the Council of Elders, saying, “The Savasi are
still, by and large, a goodly people, worthy to be called Children of
Light. But this world is no longer good for us and neither are we good
Other than the few Gersan who live among us, what good have we done upon
the Earth in the time since our ancestors first came to these shores?
Let us not fight the will of Elohim and draw their wrath upon us. The
Father has spoken not in anger, but in love, tinged perhaps with a
little frustration at our weaknesses, which we give into more than seek
to build our strengths.
Let us rejoice that we are so loved by the Elohim that they are bringing
us to a new earth that we may more perfectly progress in our mortality.
I call upon each of you now and upon all the Savasi to go in private
prayer to Elohim and ask if the words I have spoken are true.
Whether you support me or are against me, whether you believe I am the
prophet of Elohim or a crazy old man, I know that Elohim will answer
Though you may not like the answer, I know there will be no doubt in
your mind and heart that the words I have spoken to you are true.
Precious time is being wasted squabbling about this now. I assure you
that you will leave at the appointed time. Therefore, make haste to find
your answer to prayer that you may have time still remaining to put your
affairs in order and prepare for your voyage to a new earth.”
At his words, everyone moved to make haste: some because they knew he
spoke true, others because they feared he might, and still others who
doubted he did but wanted to take precautions and be prepared just in
And their prayers were answered, and all of the Savasi came to know with
conviction that the will of Elohim was for them to leave Earth forever
on the third day.
Around noon on the third day after Elohim the Father had spoken, an
enormous Oolarian Ark ship
descended from the sky and hovered a little above the height of the
trees over the temple.
As in the days of Noah, a long, wide ramp descended from one wing of the
giant ship, turning back and forth upon itself several times before it
touched the ground. But unlike in the days of Noah, no Oolarians came
down, but they chose instead to remain aboard and await the Savasi.
During the remaining hours of the day and into the night, the Savasi
walked up the long ramp and into the ship. Many carried their pets in
their arms and they were allowed to board, and many were in tears at all
they had to leave behind, including many of the Gersan whom they had
The words of the prophet and all that had been told by Elohim the Father
had been sent within moments after his last meeting with the Council of
Elders to all of the scientific-exploration parties scattered across the
Earth, and all raced to return to the islands to be with their families
and board the Oolarian Ark.
All of the airships, every one, were flown up into an even-larger
opening in the other wing of the Ark, and many carried equipment and
devices of the advanced sciences of the Savasi so that none would be
left behind to do harm to the Gersan.
The prophet came up in one of the last ships with his family. Pulling a
small two-wheeled cart with the help of two of the twelve, he bore a
most precious cargo: a complete copy, encoded on crystals and stones, of
the entire Library of Knowledge.
The momentous task of copying all the knowledge of the library had begun
over two years earlier at the direction of Elohim the Father, who knew
even then all that would come to pass, as he does even to this day and
So too did he and the Council of Twelve insure that all entrances to the
Great Library, and all of its branches were securely sealed in ways that
would defy intrusion until the time Elohim called for the knowledge to
come forth again upon Earth.
However, all the Savasi did not willingly go up the ramp and into the
Oolarian Ark. Some took elaborate actions to remain undetected until the
ship had departed.
But it was to no avail, as once together, to fulfill the word of Elohim,
the Council of Twelve joined in a Circle of Power and sent forth a spell
of desire over all the islands of Guache, and any Savasi not yet aboard
the Ark felt an overpowering urge to be there and raced to join the
others already on board.
Near midnight of the third day, the Oolarian Ark ship silently rose into
the starry sky as the Gersan remaining on the islands watched in
The Savasi crowded to viewing windows and portals as the Ark broke free
of the atmosphere; they looked back upon the world that had been their
home with much reflection and an outpouring of feelings.
But as Earth quickly became just another indistinguishable star in the
sky, they turned their thoughts in expectant contemplation and quiet
conversations with one another to the new earth that would soon be their
home and considered all the adventures and wonders that might be before
And most at some point in the first hours aboard the Ark fell to their
knees in most earnest prayer and gave thanks to Elohim for their
blessings—so great they were—beyond the expectations of men.
