The Love Story of Creation - Book One
by Edward Ruetz

Hydro throws all caution to the wind. He veers toward the edges of its intense gravity field. Even Hydrojean who is maintaining her course through the center of the galaxy is experiencing its massive power. Her fear grows. She watches Hydro being drawn strongly toward its hellish hole. He has crossed the point of no return. The velocity of the black hole's whirlpool of gravity exceeds the speed of light. Hydro has crossed over this event horizon. Hydro's mood begins to change from curiousness to daring. Suddenly it is dawning on him that he has entered a state of extreme foolishness. He begins to sense the drastic danger that he is approaching. The attraction of the black hole's funnel like action clutches Hydro in its grasp. He is being drawn infallibly, against his free-spirited will, into the midst of its maelstrom. He is being faced with a reality at which he had scoffed. His spirit of independence and pride has brought him to the brink of destruction. He begins to rue his foolishness and careless dismissal of Dabar's warning. He looks to the future. He is beginning to realize he has permanently cut himself off from the future. He is in extreme anguish. He cries out for help. But there is no assistance that can save him from virtual extinction. His spirit of independence has cut him off from his atom families and their loving community and the Divine Beings There is no salvation for him.. "How stupid I have been?" Hydro is in deep remorse. "I did not listen to Quarkie, Hydrojean, Phosie or Nitro and their entreaty. I dismissed the loving counsel of Dabar, Elohim, Sophia and Ruah. I am finished!" He sees clearly the vortex of the back hole. He is losing consciousness as he is dragged through the entrance into its chamber of horrors. My visionary gift allows me to enter this black hole but not be affected by its awesome power. I observe Hydro being torn apart into his elemental particles, proton, electron, then quarks, and finally strings and loops of strings. Before my eyes in this vision I see Hydro virtually annihilated.




          Some of you might wonder why Book I ends so abruptly with the creation and evolution of the eukaryote cell. This cell will be the foundation for all future flora and fauna, including human beings, who will inhabit planet Earth over the next 1.5 by or November 15 through December 31. All flora and fauna will be constructed of  eukaryote cells. This period will be "The Age of the Eukaryote Cell."  At the same time the tectonic plates upon which the dry land masses and seafloors are constructed continue their constant movement changing the locations of  continents and seas. Sea levels continue to rise and fall periodically. Climate is in a continuous flux. The oxygen and nitrogen levels are not yet able to sustain eukaryote multicellular life 1.5 bya. 


          Utilizing the literary genre of midrash Book II  will continue my original vision of  how the Universe was birthed into existence through an act of ecstatic love on the part of  the Divine Beings at the first moment of spacetime. My vision will continue to recount the adventures of  Quarkie, Photie and friends. The latter continue to create new beings energized, but not programmed by the Divine Beings. This allows for chance, contingency, natural selection, genetic copy errors and manipulation by a tool kit of genes to be involved in their creativity. During the last 1.5 by covered by Book II the Divine Beings will be in intimate, constant contact with the atom characters. Since the latter live in the microcosm of the Universe (you would need an electron microscope to view their activities) the Divine Beings frequently take them on journeys back-to-the-past to view the macrocosm of the Universe and to come in contact and talk to other atom families carrying out other creative, evolutionary missions.


          You may also wonder how my atom characters can turn up at just the right time to continue their creative activities. Remember that atoms continue to exist even though the living being, in which they live, dies. Such discarded atoms are assimilated by other living creatures and they become part of  that being. In addition, the magic genre of  midrash allows me to take liberties in telling the scientific story of  creation without compromising the facts, artifacts and conclusions of modern science. 


          In the beginning of  Book II the atom friends decide to keep their teams together. Team One is composed of Hydrojean, Nitro and Phoson, Team Two of  Phosie, Oxyjoy and Hydrojohn, Team Three of Photie, Oxydon and Nitrojoan, and Team Four of Quarkie, Quarkoff and Quarko. 


          Ruah takes the atom crew mates on a journey to survey the present state of  evolution on planet Earth, the climate, tectonic plates, bacterial and eukaryote communities, atom family members at work in the molten mantle underneath the plates of the Earth, on dry land and in the atmosphere.


          Team Three evolves new varieties of algae about 1.2 bya or December 1. Team Two, working within eukaryote protists, creates a new process for the reproduction of  progeny  by union of two protists 1 bya or December 5. Ruah names this process meiosis. Then, after suffering the frustration of  many trials, failures and some interpersonal conflicts over a period  of  one billion years, November  15 to December 15 Teams One, Three and Four finally master the process of creating eukaryotic multicellular life, such as sponges and  jelly fish. All of  this creativity takes place in the waters of the seas, rivers and ponds, but not on the barren soil of the Earth. Through their creative efforts they begin to develop a tool kit of  genes, such as hox genes and improved genetic-on-off-switches, which will help them in their future creativity. With the help of this tool kit  they create the two membrane flat worms, and then three membrane round worms.with bilateral symmetry, primitive eyes and mouth, the beginning a brain and neural system, rudimentary heart and vascular, breathing,  digestive and waste systems.


          About 600 mya or December 15 the atom characters, along with numerous atom friends,  suffer through a period of an earth-wide cold spell and an ice covered planet, called "snowball earth." The prokaryote, protists and multicellular communities suffer some extinction of  species. Creativity comes to a standstill. Will this catastrophe halt future evolution? Ruah takes Teams One and Four and they travel back-to-the-past to view the destruction of  species. They are devastated and depressed to observe the extinction of some of  the life forms they labored to create over 1 by. They too wonder about the future of  earthly creativity. The Divine Beings console and encourage them to resolutely continue their creative efforts. Ruah promises to power their efforts with her divine energy of  love.    


          After much effort and cooperation from 600 mya to 540 mya or December 15 to 17 all the Teams are working diligently and steadily, supported by the Divine Beings' love energy,  within this watery environment. Finally,  they achieve success. Their creativity leads to a strong surge of  multicellular creativity  and evolution, called the Cambrian Explosion. Team Two creates and evolves trilobites, scorpions, mollusks, and later, Team One creates hemochordates or proto fish like creatures, and Team Four jawless, then jawed fish with a skeletal system. The tool kit genes produce more sophisticated eyes, mouth, teeth, brain, heart, circulatory and neural systems, in addition to a digestive and breathing all of the new species of  sea life. At the same time other atom families evolve plant life which proliferates in the seas, rivers and ponds during the Cambrian Epoch (545-495 MYA).   In the waters of  Earth  Team Three evolve the first multicellular plants life, red algae near the end of the Cambrian Epoch,  At the same time they gradually evolve the ability of  green algae to survive in the atmosphere. The land masses are still devoid of any life except for some colonies of single celled prokaryote bacteria.


          The Ordovician Epoch (495-438 mya) begins. About the middle part of  this Epoch green algae is able to go ashore, survive and carpet the soil.


          It is at this same time that the Earth suffers a second devastating catastrophe which decimates several communities of  marine life, including trilobites, which go extinct. Dabar takes Teams One and Two back-to-the-past to view the Ordovician Age, its creative wonders and the devastation caused by this second large extinction.. The team members are very depressed by the loss of so many marine species as are the atom community members that they meet on their journey. Dabar encourages them to continue to their efforts despite this serious setback. The team mates are skeptical that there is a future for  their creative actvities.


          The atom families take heart again. It is the beginning of  the Silurian Epoch (438-417  mya). With the loss of the trilobites, after 100 my, they labor to improve the chordate (fish) species. Team One uses some of  the tool kit genes to evolve a more advanced skeletal system, jaws and backbone, to strenghthen them.


          Algae stranded on dry land by receding waters adapt to these new conditions and develop new species to further populate the land areas. Oxygen and nitrogen atom communities stabilize in  atmosphere around the Earth, while the oxygen community further develops a layer of ozone in the upper atmosphere to protect living beings on the Earth.from the sun's deadly ultraviolet rays.


          Dabar accompanies Team Three on a journey. The temperature which cooled near the end of the Ordovician Epoch (438 mya or December 18) is gradually warming toward the end of the Silurian Epoch (417 mya or December 17). At  the beginning of this Epoch .all species of  biological life, except algae and some  prokaryote colonies, live in the waters of  Earth. They observe Team One creating new species of algae. They observe the latter move onto the soil of the Earth near the shorelines and survive. Most of the continental plates still reside in the southern hemisphere of  the Earth. .   


          On their return Team Three decides to continue the efforts of Team One who evolved algae which later moves onto land. They work to create a eukaryote cell that will help plant life to stand upright. Through disappointments, conflicts and community effort they evolve lignin, a wood cell, that assists plant life to stand upright. They also develop a vascular system to allow the moisture to move upwards from the roots to bring water to the trunk, branches and leaves which they gradually evolve.                 


          At the beginning of the Devonian Epoch (417-362 mya) Elohim and Sophia conduct Teams Two and Four on a journey from the end of the Silurian Epoch and the middle of the Devonian Epoch (385 mya or December 21). The climate is mostly warm and dry, with cool temperatures near the south pole. Pangea, the coming together of the main crustal plates,  begins to develop during the middle of the Devonin Epoch. Carbon dioxide levels in the air are high. This condition causes plant life to proliferate on the land masses, especially close to the seas and ponds. The upper atmosphere ozone continues to protect species from ultraviolet rays.


          Team Four, along with many other atom communities, labor diligently, amidst conflicts between Quarkie and Quarko, to create and evolve the coalacanth with elementary lungs and a improved breathing system. Again, with the clever use of  the tool kit genes they then evolve from fish an amphibian that evolves elementary legs from their fins. They propagate by laying eggs near the seashores. This helps Team Four to think of new future creations and the possibility of  movement of  these amphibians to land.   


          Upon their return from their journey Team Two creates and evolves insects with wings in the watery areas. The insects  soon move on land which is now providing sources of  food.


           In the latter part of  the Devonian Epoch there is a minor extinction. This catastrophe effects most marine life but not terrestrial flora. Reefs of coral and invertebrate fish life suffer great losses.


          After the Devonian Catastrophe Elohim and Sophia take Teams Two, Three  and Four on a trip back-to-the-past.  It is also the beginning of the Carboniferous Epoch (362-290 mya).  They observe possible niches for new species opened up by this extinction. They observe the activity of the continental plates, the climate and atmosphere of planet Earth at this point in its history. By the middle of this Epoch extensive rainforests covered the tropical regions of the newly forming super-continent of Pangea. The south pole is developing an ice cap. The team members meet the atom families living in amphibians who are developing a plan to evolve a harder shell for their eggs to enhance survival of  progeny and a more efficient lung for living on the land.   


           By the middle of the Carboniferous Epoch (362-290 mya) Team Three evolves some plants species into large ferns and trees of various kinds. They continue to develop more sophisticated spores and gametes for reproduction of  tree species. In some tree species they evolve a hard embryo seed that contains its own food source for its reproduction cycle. The seed, which Elohim calls a gymnosperm, is a vast improvement over the soft shell seed.


          Team Four evolve on land the insect family, including beetles, and shell creations, like snails.


          The Permian Epoch (290-240 mya) begins and moves forward. During the middle part of this Epoch Dabar takes Teams One, Three and Four on a journey back-to-the past. The large continents are coming together to form the super-continent of  Pangea, one part north, the other south, with a small sea in between the two. Giant swampy forests grow on the tropical land masses as a suitable environment for the amphibian and insect communities.  They meet other atom communities who are evolving larger, more diverse species of amphibians through the manipulation of the tool kit genes.  They discuss these new creations with them. Because the continents are joined they notice that many species are able to move to new areas of Pangea and most of  the continental areas of the Earth. They meet another.atom community that has created from the amphibian species, a new species of fauna, a reptile. Being consumed with their own creative activity they are surprised by the rapid  creativity and evolution proceding in all areas of  planet Earth.


          Near the end of the Permian Epoch (248 mya or December 26) there is a rapid global warming due to the dissipation of  the ice in the south polar region which contributed mightly to a "hot house" Earth and a most devastating catastrophe, the Permian Extinction. Nine-five percent of all the species on the land and in the sea are wiped out.


           Elohim and Sophia escort Team One, Two, Three and Four on a journey to observe this momentous catastrophe. Their spirits sink when they assess the huge dimension of  this extinction. The loss of nine-five percent of all sea and land species. Again, like team members viewing other extinctions they despair that they can continue their creative efforts. Why struggle through conflicts, obstacles, dangers and strenuous effort to create an evolving flora and fauna, then watch it wiped out by devastating catastrophes like the Permian Extinction?  Elohim and Sophia.muse deeply as to whether they will be able to resurrect the demoralized atom communities to continue their creative efforts. But again, they encourage and console them to continue their evolutionary efforts.  Reluctantly, Team 3, sparked by Photie, and later Teams One, Two and Four acquiesce to their encouragement.  Ruah is nearby energizing them through her divine love energy.               


          The Triassic Epoch (248-206 mya) arises out of the devastation of the Permian Extinction. Reenergized, Teams Four and One evolve from the reptile family a new species of fauna called generically, dinosaurs. Team Four creates a giant, long-necked, vegetarian browsing dinosaur which Sophia calls a sauropod. Team One evolves a smaller ferocious and speedy dinosaur, a meat eater, which Sophia calls oviraptor.  When they meet Team Four and Team One are conflicted. Team Four asks why Team One creates a more efficient meat eating species that will attack and live off of  killing other vegetative species. This seems counterproductive to their creative mission. They had faced this problem in the Cambrian Epoch when the trilobites preyed and ate other species of  marine fauna. Is this part of  the nature of  creativity and evolution, they muse?


          Around the same time Team Three creates, by tool kit gene manipulation,  another form of fauna, a mammal, from the smaller reptile community. Once evolved they  begin to proliferate and diversify. This Epoch also saw the continuous development of  new species of  plants and trees. Pines and ferns predominate in most of the land masses of  Earth. The   mammal and insect communities evolve new species.  The super-continent allows the large and small fauna to migrate to all of its areas.


          With the beginning of the Jurassic Epoch (205-142 mya) Dabar takes Teams One, Two and Three in a trip back-to-the past. They are surprised by the diversification and growth of the dinosaur community . Plant and tree life also continues its growth and diversification. They continue to provide the increasing dinosaur communities with food and shelter. Pangea is beginning to break apart. The equatorial land masses are arid, but the northern and southern hemispheres are warm and semi-tropical. South and north poles are becoming cool and temperate. Moisture bearing winds are lush and verdant. Team members meet atom communities that are helping some of  the dinosaur species to develop protection against the meat eating dinosaurs. In the early Jurassic Epoch another atom community evolves from smaller oviraptors a more ferocious dinosaur which Dabar calls a tyranosaurus. Since Team One was involved in the creation of oviraptor, they discuss this event with members of that community. The issue of dinosaur eating dinosaur again arises. Small mammals evolve and diversify. They live in holes, trees and caves. The insect community, especially the flying insects, also diversify more and more. Team Two which evolved insects with wings during the Carboniferous Epoch, is especially interested in a development brought about by another atom community, a flying dinosaur, which  Dabar calls a pterosaur. They share their creative stories with each other.   


           The large continental tectonic plates which will later be North and South America gradually separate farther and farther from the European and African plates.This is the time of  Creataceous Epoch (142-65 mya). On land the dinosaurs roam on most of the continents of the Earth. While the dinosaurs further diversify and grow larger, some with bodily armor, the atom families evolve huge marine reptiles, one, the  pliosaur, the tiger of the sea. Forests, rain forests and swampy areas proliferate to be the environment and food source for all of  these amphibians and large dominant dinosaurs.


          About noon on December 28 Team One creates and evolves from plant life, flowers, which begin to add a kalidescope of colors along with perfume scents to all the landscapes, attracting  flying insects which feed and propagate the flowers' seeds. This leads to a partnership between the insects and the flowering plants. This is an important step in evolution as it leads a little later to the evolution of vegetable plants. Toward the middle of the Createceous Epoch (105 mya or midnight December 28) Team Three evolve from small mammals a bird species which is a smaller version of  flying dinosaurs. Near the end of  this Epoch some of the dinosaur species begin to die out.


          This Epoch ends with a mountainous asteroid invading the solar system and crashing into an area just off the Yucatan coast in present day Mexico. The explosion sends a gigantic amount of debris, soil, rock, water and vegetation into the atmosphere. It forms a mushroom cloud of this material which is carried around  planet Earth for a long period of  time. Trees, plants and vegetation, derived of  sunlight for a significant period of  time, are stunted or die. The food supply of  dinosaurs is seriously compromised leading to the demise of  the dinosaur community..


          Elohim, Sophia, Dabar and Ruah  journey with Teams One, Two, Three and Four  back-to-the-past to view the massive destruction, later to be called the K/T Extinction. The team members are overwhelmed with frustration and deeply depressed at viewing this vast earthly cemetery for  all of  the dinosaur and large reptiles living on Earth. They confront the Divine Beings in anger. All seems lost. They are disillusioned and despairing. They point out the futility of continuing their creative activities since periodically the Earth and its many species of flora and fauna are subjected to large extinctions through natural catastrophes. The Divine Beings observe that, after each extinction, new and improved flora and fauna are created and evolve. The atom team members question what is  the final goal of their creative activity. They are tired and want to retire from their creative mission. Photie rallies his colleagues to more forward to new and better creative activity with these words: "Friends, potent perseverance and fastidious fidelity to our mission is necessary."  His encouragement leads them to discuss the possibilities for the future, using the living remnants of  this extinction as the vehicle for new and possibly more sophisticated creativity. They commence some preliminary planning.


          It is the beginning of the Paleocene Epoch (65-55 mya). On the continent of  Africa Team Four lives within one of the small surviving mammals about the size of  a modern squirrel, that Dabar names a prosimian. These mammals propagate by means of an embryo which grows within a placenta in its body, and in due time, delivers offspring outside of  its body.  Team Four also works with the other atom families, through the manipulation of  the tool kit genes to enlarge the brain, move the spinal cord connection to the brain more to the center of its head. They are conflicted as to increasing the size of  this mammal, but decide to stay with smallness.


          Near the end of the Paleocene Epoch (56 mya or the early afternoon of  December 30)  Dabar takes Team Three and Four back-to-the-past to observe the entire Paleocene Epoch. They notice that the North American tectonic plates are still attached to the European plates and South American plates are still disconnected from the North American plates. Temperatures arise after the K/T extinction, and world-wide, more moist and humid. Grasslands are covering many parts of the soil toward the end of  this Epoch. Forests are plentiful, vegetation proliferate, flowers provide food for insects who, in turn, pollinate the flowers. They observe their promision creation and rejoice that it is prospering in the forests where the climate is warm and moist. Teams Three and Four meet and talk with the atom communities who are evolving new species of  plants, flowers, trees and vegetation. They observe the creativity of still other atom communities who are evolving changes and diversification in the fauna community. They observe much smaller reptiles, amphibians, birds and insects who survived the great extinction. They meet a community of  atoms who are evolving a member of the marsupial mammal family and discuss their creative activities.


          As the Eocene Epoch (54-34 mya) begins on the continent of Africa Team Three live within a prosimian. They are debating how to evolve and develop this creature. Having noticed the forests and vegetation on one of their journeys with the Divine Beings they decide that developing its hands and feet would benefit them in climbing trees and manipulating objects. In addition, they evolve a little bigger brain and develop a place near the middle bottom of  brain where the spinal cord enters. This is to help them in sitting and hopping in a more upright position. They use the tool kit genes to evolve these modifications.  Sophia calls this evolved mammal, a lemur. Their efforts are accomplished near the middle of  the Eocene Epoch very late December 30.


          Elohim and Sophia take Team Two and Three back-to-the-past to observe the whole Eocene Epoch. As this Epoch procedes the climate is growing warmer. The north and south poles are temperate. Forests cover the Earth due to warm temperatures. These forests  and grasslands are populated with small reptiles, early rodents, marsupials, large crocodiles, primitive hoffed animals, pythons and turtles. The team member visit atom families that have recently evolved from large land mammals, whales and dolphins, which then migrated back to the sea. They discuss their process in evolving these creatures. Toward the end of the Epoch, about 34 mya or early December 31 they observe a sudden global warming associated with changes in oceanic and atmospheric circulation. The temperature arises 6 degree centigrade  for a period of 20,000 years. This leads to a marine extinction when the deep waters became anoxic. Coral and deep water fish are dissimated while on land this super heated temperature causes mammalian life  to proliferate and spread around the continents. They visit the atom communities in the magma underneath the plates of the Earth, the areas around volcanic activity and areas where methane is being released which is a major cause of  the extinction of marine species. Team members discuss some of  the causes of  the extinction.  


          With the coming of the Oliogocene Epoch (34-23 mya) on the African continent Team 1 is busy living in a lemur. They are laboring together with the other atom communities to evolve and create a new form of offspring.  Cooperating in this effort and utilizing the tool kit genes they create a primitive mammal which  Ruah names a monkey.


          Ruah takes Teams One and Four on a journey to observe this Epoch about 28 mya or early morning of December 31. They discover that the continents continue to drift farther apart. The African continent moves closer to Europe while the North American continent finally disconnects from Europe. Ice begins to cover the south pole, but not the north pole. There is a slow global cooling taking place after the Eocene extinction. Flowers and plant life continue to diversify. Woodlands are filled with new species of  trees. Marine and terrestrial vertebrate fauna slowly evolve to take on a look much closer to their modern forms of life. Team members visit the atom communities involved in some of  these creations and discuss methods of  evolving new species.


          The Miocene Epoch (23-5 mya) ushers in new creativity. In the beginning of he Miocene Epoch (23 mya or noon on December 31) dwelling on the continent of  Africa Team One lives in a well-developed species of  monkey.  They are working to evolve a new species from the monkey.  Their new creation would possess some of  the aptitudes of  the monkey, but would be larger, bigger brained and more land based than the monkey. They are successful in their efforts with the help of  the tool kit genes. Ruah names this new form, an ape.


          About 10 mya or early evening of  December 31 Team 4 is living in an ape in Africa. They decide to try to evolve a new species from their host.  Amidst some personal conflict they evolve a new mammalian specie which Elohim calls a gorilla. It is much larger than the ape, has a bigger brain, with greater hand agility.


          About this same time in Africa Team Three lives also in an ape. Along with the atom community there Team Three organizes an effort to evolve a new species of  mammal. They are finally able to create this new species which Dabar calls a chimpanzee


          The crashing of  tectonic plates against each other causes new chains of  mountain to spring up. Africa and Asia grow closer together allowng migration of  various populations of  animals. Receding sea levels are caused by the growing ice caps on the north and south poles. The cooling of the northern continents causes migration of  some mammals to a warmer southern climate. Grasslands expand and forests recede due to a cooler, drier climate. The team members observe the results of  their creative efforts to evolve and create new species of  mammals, gorillas and chimpanzees. They see the results of other creative activity by atom communities in the presence of modern cats and dogs, elephants, orangutans, a surge of grazing animals, cows, sheep, pigs, wolves, horses, beavers, deer, camels and many new species of  birds.  They talk to members of  these communities to share stories of  their creativity.


          At the end of  the Miocene Epoch and the beginning of  the Pliocene Epoch (5-1.7 mya) in Africa  Team Three and Four are living in a member of the chimpanzee family. A heated discussion ensues between the team members as to how the evolution would procede. They decide that the most important change in this new species is a larger sized  brain. About 5 mya or the middle of  the evening of  December 31 they evolve the first bigger brained creature. Sophia calls this new being, a hominid (Its technical name is australophithecus afarensis.). This is an important event in evolutionary history.             .


          In the middle of the Pliocene Epoch (3 mya or ten o'clock in the evening of  December 31) Team One lives in a hominid on the African continent.. They work to evolve and create a more developed hominid. After much effort, trial and error they evolve a more adaptable hominid. Elohim names this new creature, homo habilis. A million year later (2 mya or ten thirty in the evening of December 31), Team 2 lives in a member of homo habilis. Again, using their creativity and tool kit genes they evolve a more developed hominid. Sophia calls this new creature, homo erectus.   


          The Pleistocene Epoch (1.7 mya-10,000 ya) dawns during an exciting period of  evolution. About 200,000 ya or ten minutes before midnight December 31 Teams One and Two attempt to improve the abilities of  a homo erectus hominid in which they live. They evolve a more talented, larger brained hominid which Dabar calls archaic homo sapiens.


          About 50,000 ya or two minutes before  midnight December  31  Ruah takes all the team members back-to-the-past to view this Pliocene Epoch. At the beginning of this Epoch the continental plates of the North American and South American continents finally join together allowing the animal species to move back and forth. The whole Epoch is a time of  continual glacial periods, followed by glacial receding. During this Epoch there occurs the extinction of large mammals, mammoths, mastodons, saber-toothed cats and ground sloths. In this period flora and fauna are closely related in size and appearance to modern species.


           The atom characters observe and discuss the lives and actions of  their hominid creations.  They meet atom families that have been involved in various forms of  creativity and they share stories. They meet the atom families involved in the creation and evolution of  homo robustus and Neanderthal homonids. They discuss the reasons for the failure of some of  these creatures to survive into the present time.              


          Teams One, Two, Three and Four are all living in a archaic homo sapiens hominid. Through  observation of their hominid creations and much discussion among themselves, energized by Ruah's love energy, they set out to  evolve a wiser, more intelligent hominid from archaic homo sapiens. About 50,000 ya or two minutes before midnight December 31, divinely energized, but not directed by Ruah, they evolve homo sapiens. When they meet members of  other atom families in their vicinity they discover that the latter have also evolved homo sapiens.    


         It is August 1, 2009 or in universal spacetime, midnight December 31. Elohim, Sophia, Dabar and Ruah gather the four Teams for a journey back-to-the-past. The Divine Beings lavishly praise and compliment the team members for their spirit of perseverance through the fifteen billion years of creation history. In addition, they wish to inform their atom friends what has happened to their new species, homo sapiens, over the last 50,000 years or the past two minutes of universal spacetime.


           As they begin their journey the Divine Beings bring them to the continent of  Africa where the atom friends have been involved in evolving hominids from the chimpanzee species over the past 5 by, and ultimately, 50,000 ya, evolving homo sapiens. Dabar begins the tour by letting his atom friends view closely  the growth and propagation of homo sapiens. Dabar gives a name of homo sapiens, either human or human being. He points out that humans continue to use the primitive tools of their hominid ancestors.


           Gradually, they see humans developing new tools, spears, bows and arrows. Their ancestors had already mastered the art of fire making. Sophia shows them how humans now live in small groups in the eastern and northeastern part of Africa. The atom friends are surprised to learn that their human creations begin to create language in the form of vocal clicks. Sophia further points out that language helps them to develop a sense of community and cooperation among themselves. She also allows them to observe how humans are evolving in consciousness and self-consciousness


            Elohim recounts how, after the development of language and then music, small bands of humans start to travel north from Africa to the Middle East about 30,000 ya. They observe these migratory groups establish themselves there and grow in numbers. Then Elohim traces the travels of small groups of  humans who go north to Europe and south along the coast of  Arabia. Over the ensuing years the atom characters are surprised by the bravery of  small groups who venture east from Arabia all the way to India, and beyond, to China and Australia, and from India north to Central Asia.


          Dabar informs them that, until 15,000 ya, only North and South America are devoid of human beings due to being cut off from Europe, Africa and Asia 220 mya. In the  North and South American continents the atom friends become present to the end of  the ice age. As the ice recedes they see humans from Central Asia move east and enter the North American continent over  a land bridge at the Bering Strait. They advance from north to south into the South American continent. By 12,000 ya they are shocked to see the human race reside in all of the continents of  planet Earth.


           About 10, 000 ya  the atom friends are astonished by the ability of humans to begin to domesticate animals and grain crops. Their advances in language skills allows them to begin to organize themselves into small towns, they discover. Commerce between human communities continues to expand. Dabar observes that written language is  developed with the invention of an alphabet in the Middle East and Sanskrit in India. By  4000 ya the world population is 5 to 10 million.  


          As the human population grows Ruah shows her atom friends how humans are organizing cities. These communities become places of  growing civilization, she tells them. Further, many of  these cities and surrounding territories become nations ruled by  kings. Cities become places of  power, spheres of influence, commerce, financially supporting  themselves through a system of taxation, build armies to protect their people and way of life. This leads to continual wars with one nation trying to conquer another to expand its power, wealth and influence, Ruah concludes.     


          Ruah highlights the development of  human civilizations. She shows them the ancient civilizations of  the Sumeria, Egypt, Israel, and later, Greece. Starting about 2600 ya Ruah takes them around the Earth to show where humans are developing religions in a search for gods or God who exist invisibly beyond the Earth, but relate intimately with earth bound humans. Some religions search for a life after death in the presence of  their God.. The atom friends are shown the areas where humans have begun Confucianism, Buddism, Hinduism, Zoroasterianism and other lesser beliefs. About 2000 ya Christianity develops in the Middle East and spreads around the known world while 1400 ya the Muslim religion comes into existence in the Middle East and spreads out from there, Ruah tells them. For about a thousand years there are wars between Christians and Muslims, especially for control of the city of Jerusalem in the Middle East.


          Human knowledge grows through the centuries in the areas of  philosophy, theology, cosmology, physics, biology, chemistry, mahematics and astronomy. As they visit the nations of  Europe from 1400 ya up to the present they are mystified that their human creations seem to be involved in endless wars while utilizing more and more developed and deadly war technologies. Why are their self-conscious, intelligent and sensitive creations killing each other, they inquire of  Elohim? They realize that the purpose of  much of  their warfare has to do with the acquisition of  power, wealth, commerce and influence. Elohim takes them to Europe about 300 ya where they observe the beginnings of  the Industrial Revolution. He shows them the industrial progress during the ensuing 300 years.


          Finally, Elohim takes them to view some of  the astounding human developments of  the last hundred years—the invention of  the car, airplane, the harnessing of the energy in the atom and  development of atomic and nuclear bombs, the computer, the copier, medical technologies, space travel, globalization,  the tremendous growth of human population, the ecological devastation and pollution  of  the oceans, rivers, land and atmosphere, the destruction of  many species of  flora and fauna by unwise human habits,  growth of  the world's education systems and the persistence of  religions and religious belief in gods or God.


          Sophia concludes their journey with this question: "My atom friends, is your creative mission at an end or is their more evolution and creativity to come as you continue to live in spacetime on planet Earth in this Solar System?


          Book II contains a surprise ending. Unbeknown to the twelve atom characters they all end up in me, the visionary, and in my body-person.  I hold a conversation with them in which I inform them that I had been present and followed them closely during all the fifteen billion years of  their creative and evolutionary journey. We address Sophia's concluding question, discuss their ongoing relationship with Elohim, Sophia, Dabar and Ruah, the possible future of the human race and the ultimate destiny of  planet Earth and the Universe!

(600 mya to 438  mya) (Dabar takes Team One, Hydrojean, Nitro and Phoson, and Team  Two, Phosie, Oxyjoy and Hydrojohn, back to the Snowball Earth, to  observe the Cambrian Explosion, the advent of Trilobites, Jawless and  Jawed Fish, and the development of plant life that moves from the seas  onto the  land. They  also observe climate  changes, rising and falling  of sea levels, the atom families working in the mantle of the Earth,  tectonic plate movements and atmosphere.)  (600 mya -438 mya)






Chapter 23  — The Development of the Chordate Species by Team 1. (Ruah takes Team 1 on a  trip to visit the oceans and ponds of Planet Earth. All species of biological life  still live in the waters of the Earth. The age of trilobites has ended after 100  my. They observe the new species of algae which are developing at  beginning of  Ordovician Epoch. Climate mild over most of the globe.  Oxygen and nitrogen  levels constant. Temperatures getting cooler and  south pole cold. Continental plates are located in southern hemisphere  of Earth. In the company of Ruah Team 1 sees the need to develop  new species from placiderm chordates with evolution of jaws and  backbones. They gather the atom representatives from all parts  of the placiderm chordate where they live to plan the evolution  of this species.) (438-4l7 mya) Include Paleomap of Silurian  Epoch. (420 mya)


Chapter 24  — Team 3 Bring the Algae Ashore and Develop their Ability to Live on the Crustal  Plates of the Earth. (Dabar takes Team 3 on a journey beginning at the Silurian  Epoch . The temperature has begun to become very cool at the end of the  Ordovician Epoch (438 mya). It gradually warms toward the end of the  Silurian Epoch (417 mya) .The freezing waters of the Extinction draws  waters from the oceans and ponds and leaves some of the algae stranded  on the land masses. Most of the continental plates are still in the  southern hemisphere. Oxygen and nitrogen levels are constant. Ozone  layer beginning to protect the land masses  from ultraviolet rays of  the Sun. They begin to think of the development of  algae needed to  allow them to live on the crust of the Earth. Team 3 returns to  their algae specie living on the crustal land. After a planning  meeting with representatives of their specie they decide to  work on building a root system by evolving lignin to support  cell tissue to plant to stand up and a vascular system to  conduct moisture to all the cells in the algae species.  They create branches off the main stem with a few  leaves on each branch. They create spores on top  branches for reproduction of species. First  cooksonia, then species of mosses and liverworts.) 




Chapter 25  — Major Development of Fish Species, the Coalacanth (417mya), the Lung Fish  (410 mya) and finally Eusthenopteron (400 mya). (Elohim and Sophia conduct  Team 4 on a journey to the end of the Silurian Epoch and the beginning of the  Devonian Epoch. The Climate was mostly warm and dry, with cool  temperatures near the south pole. Pangea, the coming together of the main  crustal plates, begins to develop during the middle of the Devonian Epoch  (385  mya). Carbon dioxide levels are high. Plant life is proliferating on  land masses,  especially close to seas and ponds. Ozone continues to  protect species from ultraviolet rays. Team 4, after a meeting of  representatives from species in which they live they decide on a plan  of action. They cooperate to develop the coalacanth, then a fish  which develops elementary lungs and a breathing system. Finally,  they create eusthenopternon, a fish-like amphibian, that  evolves legs from fins. This helps Team 4 to think of future co-  creation.) Include a Paleomap of Early Devonian Epoch (400 mya)


Chapter 26  — The Further Development of Coral, Cephalopods, Sea Scorpions and Insects with  Wings. (Ruah gives Team 2 an tour of the early Silurian Epoch (438-417 mya)  and early Devonian Epoch (417-361 mya).The climate sunny and warm in  the southern arid belt which stretches close to south pole. Plants have  begun to invade the land masses. Carbon dioxide levels are still high and  oxygen and nitrogen levels stable. Most of the plant life is located in the  southern hemisphere.


Team 2 calls a meeting of the coral and insect communities to discuss the future  creative processes. They continue the development of the coral reefs. Some  of the small mollusks community invades land masses. They develop legs,  sometimes multiple legs. The atom community develops insects with wings.)


Chapter 27  — Fish Go Ashore onto Land. (Dabar takes Team 4 on a journey to the beginning of  the Devonian Epoch (417 mya). The climate is mild and dry. Once bare land masses are green, especially close to the water, whether seas, rivers or  ponds. Ferns have appear, early forms of clubmosses, horsetails and scale  trees abound. Plants still close to ground have developed vascular  systems, branches with leaves and spores for reproduction. The Sun  provides energy to plant life. Seas, rivers and ponds abound in fish  species. Some have developed lungs and go from pond or sea to land  and back. The land begins to provide food for these amphibians. The  super-continent of Pangea begins to form from the continental  plates in southern hemisphere. Plants inhabit land masses. Insects  begin to evolve new species. After a meeting of the atom  families within a lung fish Team 4 and friends create a better  lung and begin to modify fins to become feet. This is the  beginning of Tetrapods of which amphibians are members.  They still lay soft eggs in water although they live part  time on land. Land begins to provide food for  amphibians.)


Chapter 28 —  The Evolution of the Fish Species Continues as a Pending Disaster Looms. (Ruah  takes Team 1 on a visit to the Devonian landscape, check it s climate and  atmosphere, and observe the movement of the continental plates.  Temperatures are cool in the late Devonian Epoch (362 mya), glaciers  forming on south pole.  The atom members of a fish species discuss further creation of a new  species. They create a shark species. They are aware of the impending new  extinction, the Devonian extinction.)

Include a Paleomap of Late Devonian Epoch. (360 mya)



Chapter 29  — Back-To-The-Past: Dabar takes Teams 3 and 4 to observe the Silurian Epoch (438- 417 mya) and the Devonian Epoch. (Dabar show them the evolution of the  Earth and its biological life. They visit the atom families recycling the magma  from the descending plates and their recycling. They are again erupted  through volcanic fissures in the Earth to move continental plates and place  recycled material above ground again. They visit the atom communities  that are maintaining the oxygen and nitrogen levels in the atmosphere and  that are maintaining the ozone layer which protect the biological life  from excessively high levels of ultraviolet rays from the Sun. They visit  the atom families that are living in bacteria and protists to assess  evolutionary efforts there. They visit the atom families who have  been working to create the arthropods (trilobites, sea  s  scorpions and insects), chordates (invertebrate and vertebrate)  and the beginning of the amphibians (lung fish to amphibians). In  visiting the atom families who have evolved plants from algae  they observe the development of the root system, vascular  cells, lignin, branches, leaves, spores. They visit atom  families creating coral reefs and see the development of  sharks. They are concerned about the problems facing amphibians, insects and plants living on the surface of  the Earth. They observe the development of the Devonian Catastrophe about  362 mya). Team 3 and 4 are dismayed and despairing that this will negate much  of their creativity over the past few Epochs.)





Chapter 30  — Hope Returns After the Devonian Catastrophe. (Elohim and Sophia show Team 2  the situation after the disaster and the beginnings of the Carboniferous Epoch.  They observe the new species niches opened up by the extinction. They observe  early developments during the early part of the Carboniferous Epoch. They  observe the activity of the continental plates, the climate and atmosphere of  planet Earth at this point in its history. By the middle of the Epoch extensive  rainforests covered the tropical regions of the newly forming super-continent of  Pangea. The south pole is not covered yet in an ice cap.


Team 4 meets with atom representatives of the amphibian in which they  presently live. They plan to create better lungs, and the development of a  hard shell egg that can resist the environmental problems of  living on land,  exposure to ultraviolet rays, predators, etc.)

Include a Paleomap of Early Carboniferous Epoch (362-290 mya)


Chapter 31  — New Creativity enhances Plant and Tree Life. (Dabar takes Team 3 to see the  growth of the forests due to their co-creative activity and that of other atom  families. They observe the growth of ferns and other tree life. Reproduction is  still carried out through spores and gametes. They understand the problems  presented by these types of reproduction on land. The land is low, climate warm  and moist. Giant swamp forests cover many of the land plates in the central  parts of the land masses. Pangea continues to form two large continents, north  and south with a sea in between them. Insects are present in abundance.


Team 3  holds a meeting with the atom families who inhabit their horsetail tree.  They discuss the possibilities of developing a hard embryo package (a seed)  that would store food in the package for the new embryo during its  development. They create a hard shell for the embryo package (a seed). The  trees would produce seeds.  Dabar names them a gymnosperm which is a vast  improvement over soft packages. Team 3 creates lycophytes from a species  of  trees.  The forests are now inhabited by seedless ferns and gymnosperms.)


Chapter 32  — Development of Beetles on Land and Nautiloids in Seas, Ponds and Rivers. (Ruah  takes Team 2 to visit the development of new species of arthropods in seas,  ponds and rivers, including shell animals, snails and insects. They visit the atom  families creating the coral reefs. Arthropods dominate in the sea. Team 2  observes new creative possibilities due to their journey.


Team 2, after a conference with atom representatives in the snail they inhabit,  work to create nautiloids in waters on Earth and beetles on land.




Chapter 33  — The Creation of Reptiles. (Elohim and Sophia take Team 1 on a journey to  observe developments in the middle period of the Carboniferous Epoch (315  mya). The climate is warm and moist. Giant swampy forests grow on land  masses. The south pole still has its ice cap. The atmosphere is conducive to  life on land and in the seas. Amphibians have developed more species through  creative activity of atom families. Super-continent Pangea is coming together  more and more into two large continents, north and south, with a sea in  between . Team 1 gets new insights into further creative activities.


Team 1, after a conference with atom family representatives in the amphibian in  which they live discuss a new plan for the co-creation of new species. They  create the first reptiles from amphibians.  Near the end of the Permian Epoch (250 mya) they observe signs of impending disaster, another extinction. They  are fearful about the future of their creative activities.)

Include a Paleomap of the Middle Permian Epoch (270 mya).


Chapter 34  — Back-To-The-Past: Dabar takes Team 2 and Team 4 on Journey through the


Carboniferous Epoch (362-290 mya) and the beginning of the Permian Epoch  (290-248 mya). (Ruah shows Teams 2 and 4 the growth and expansion of plant  and tree life on the land. The growth of the insect species. They explore the  waters of the seas, oceans and ponds to examine fish species, bacterial species,  protists and arthropod life.  They visit the atom families in the red hot magma  underneath the continental plates. And the atom families working to create in  the clouds, winds and moisture producers. They observe the Permian Extinction  (248 mya) which exterminated about 95 per cent of all species. There is again  feelings of disillusionment, depresssion and deep concern about the future of  creativity on planet Earth. They wonder about the creation of larger species of  reptiles.)


Chapter 35  — The Creation of Large Reptiles—the Dinosaurs. (After the Permian Extinction  (248 mya) the amphibian population was greatly diminished. Some reptiles  survived. Some atom families create a new species, mammals, from the  reptile community. They are very small species. Elohim and Sophia take Team  4 on a  journey to observe the awful catastrophe. Most of the continental plates  are joined into two continents with a small sea in between. The atmosphere of  oxygen and nitrogen is constant. Ozone is still protecting the Earth from  ultraviolet rays. In the middle Permian Epoch the equatorial rainforests  disappeared and arid deserts spread across central Pangea. Southern ice sheets  are dissipated and the north pole is covered with an ice cap. There is rapid  global warming at the end of the Permian Epoch (248 mya) which possiblly  caused a "hot house" Earth which greatly contributed to the Permian Extinction.


With many new specie niches available after the Permian Extinction (248 mya)  Team 4 meets with the atom families living in one of the reptiles. After their  discussion they decided to create a larger reptile. They create the first  dinosaur, a sauropod, the first giant, long-necked, vegetarian  browsing  dinosaur. Depression gives way to hope. Other families of atoms in other  reptile-like mammals are much smaller than the larger reptiles. Team 4 learns of  the creation of oviraptor, a smaller ferocious and speedy dinosaur—a meat  eater.  They argue with the creators of oviraptor about the feasibility of a  carnivore dinosaur that preys on other vegetative eating dinosaur.)





Chapter 36  — Trees and Plants Continue to Develop New and Broader Species to Support the  New Dinosaur Community. ((Dabar takes Team 3 on a trip to observe the  development of plant and tree species. Gymnosperms (hard seeds) begin to  predominate. The fern species continues to diversify. Pines and fern trees  predominate in most of the land masses of Earth. Team 3 sees the need to  develop plants and trees to support the massive new dinosaur population.  Pangea  is beginning to breakup. The interior of Pangea in hot and dry during  the Triassic (248-206 mya). Equatorial land masses are arid, but the northern  and southern hemispheres are warm and semi-tropical. North and south Poles

are becoming cool and temperate. Pangean mega monsoon is in full swing  during the Early and Middle Jurassic (205-142 mya). Moisture bearing winds  were lush and verdant.

Team 3 discuss these conditions with other atom families in their tree specie in  which they live. They develop more hardy hard-seed bearing conifers which  have cones, clusters of scale-like sporophylls. They retain their leaves all year  long, adapted to the dry conditions. Pines have male and female seeds. They  meet other atom family members who have developed new cycads which  resemble palm trees, but are not true palm bearers. They bear on their  leaves naked hard seeds specialized for reproduction. Other atom families  develop the ginkgo. Their fan-like leaves turn gold and are deciduous in autumn.  They create gnetum which grow in tropics as trees and vines.)

Include Paleomap of the Early Triassic Epoch (248 mya)





Chapter 37    The Evolution of the Watery Coral Reefs and Insect Species on Land Masses.  (Ruah takes Team #2 on a visit to the watery depths to observe the mollusks  and crustaceous species and communities. They visit the land to observe the  growth  of the insect community. The climate begins to grow milder and as the  Jurassic Epoch (206-142 mya) goes forward, once again warm and moist.  Plant-eating dinosaurs grow much larger, some develop  protection from  their meat-eating cousins. Little mammals present and play only a small part in  the times. Team 2 develop new ideas for future creativity.


After a team meeting with Team #2 and the atom families in an insect specie  they begin to modify their designs. They realize that they need a greater variety  of flying insects for the future. They are successful in their creativity. They  meet atom families that have worked on creative projects in the seas. They  share their adventures of co-creating ichthyosaur, a fish like reptile and  hypsognathus.)

Include a Paleomap on Jurassic Epoch (205-142 mya)


Chapter 38  — The Age of the Flying Dinosaurs Begins. (Elohim and Sophia accompany Team 1 on a journey to observe the dinosaur community. Climate is warm and moist.  Pangea is breaking up. They visit the atom families working in the magma to  speak about the breakup of Pangea. They see the new species of dinosaurs--  iguanodons, armored dinosaurs, ankylosaurs and stegosaurs. They observe  the new fish-like reptiles, like the ichthyosaur. They  see the new flying insects.  They developed new ideas for creative activity among the dinosaur  community, a flying dinosaur.  After a team meeting with other atom family members in a small dinosaur they  decide to work on a flying dinosaur. They create the pterosaurs, a flying dinosaur.




Chapter 39  — The Most Ferocious of Dinosaurs, Tyrannosaurus, is Created. (Dabar takes  Team 4 on a tour of the late Triassic and early Jurassic (206-142 mya). Climate  is still warm and moist. Pangea is beginning its break up. They view the early  development of dinosaurs, early carnovores, small and large browsing  dinosaurs, a member of the iguanodont family, an ouranosaurus and an  armored dinosaur, sauropelta. They develop some new ideas. They question  the feasability of co-creating larger carnivores.


After a team meeting with other atom families in an oviraptor they evolve a  larger carnivore, a tyrannosaurus.)

Include a Paleomap of the Early Cretaceous Epoch (142-65 mya)



Chapter 40    The Creation of New Huge Marine Reptiles, the Plesiosaur. (Ruah takes Team  1 on a trip into the sea. They view the development of the marine reptile  community. They visit the existing members of the marine animal, bacteria,  protists, crustaceous and mollusks communities. They conceive new ideas for  future creativity. They also view the browsing and carnivorous dinosaurs.


After a meeting of Team 1 and their atom mates in a large marine reptile they  decide on a plan of action. They create a marine reptile similar to the long-  necked  brachiosaurs. They work on this model and create a plesiosaur.  Some of their community has been involved in the creation. Some of their  community has been involved in the co-creation of a marine reptile similar to  tyranosaurus, a pliosaur, the tiger of the sea.)



Chapter 41  — New Flowering Plants Color the Earth. (Elohim and Sophia take Team 3 on a  journey to observe the state of trees, shrubs, plants and other vegetation. As the  Cretaceous Epoch (142-115 mya) continues the formerly consolidated Pangea  continental plates continue to move away from each other with seas developing  between the  continents. In the Cretaceous Epoch the winter season in  temperate areas of the northern and southern hemispheres bring snow and ice.  The polar regions are covered with forests with temperature cool. Forests  dominate the continents with rain forests and swampy areas in the tropic and  equatorial regions. Dinosaurs dominate the earth including the long-necked  brachiosaurs, smaller oviraptors, the fast-moving dromaeosaurs and  ornithomimids, the mighty carnivorous tyrannosaurs, the iguanodonts,  the duck-billed dinosaurs, the horned and armoured triceratops, the bone-  headed dinosaurs, the stegoceras and the armored ankylosaurs and  nodosaurs, the flying archaeopteryx and pterosaurs. Then there are the much  smaller mammals. Team 3 discusses with Elohim and Sophia the possibilities of  the future. They view  vegetation and flying insects to gain new ideas for  creation.

After a Team 3 meets with other atom families in the nearby plant in which they  reside they decide to bring more color onto the Earth. They  create the first  flowering plant. The colors and the perfume scent are possible attractions to the flying insects (120  mya).




Chapter 42  — Winged Insects Forge a Partnership with Flowering plants. (Dabar takes Team 2 on a journey into the plant world. They observe the equatorial areas are tropical.  They view the many species of dinosaurs. They are particularly interested in the  small mammals who inhabit some of the specie niches on the land masses.  They observe the plates continuing to move away from each other in various  part of planet Earth with large seas opening up between them leading to  different atmospheric conditions. Global  climate is still very warm and  conducive to dinosaur, mammal and vegetative life. They see the new  flowering plants. They are amazed by their color and perfumes. They muse  with Dabar about the possibilities of arthropods forming a partnership with the  new colorful flowers. (120 mya).


After Team 2 meets with the other atom families in their insect  specie they  decide to make some modification with their flying insect to make it more  attracted to colorful flowering plants to help the latter in their pollination  process.)

Include a Paleomap of the Middle Cretaceous Epoch (100 mya).



Chapter 43  — The Prosimian, a Mammal Specie, is Created.  (Team 4 are taken on journey to  observe the growing mammal community. While the large browsing and  carnivorous reptiles dominate the land masses the growing mammal community  inhabit caves and holes in the ground where they have protection. They are  struck by the contrast between the very large dinosaur reptile community and  the mammal community.


After a meeting with representatives of  the mammal specie in which they dwell

they decide to co-create a new species of mammal, the prosimian.)



Chapter 44  — Back-To-The-Past: Ruah Takes Teams 1 and 4 on a Journey through the  Cretaceous Epoch.  (On this journey they watch the continental plates move  away from each other . They visit several continents at various times during the  trip to observe dinosaur, flying dinosaurs, bird and mammal life. They speak to  atom family members that developed the first birds which were not flying  reptiles. They discover the climate getting warmer as the Epoch moves  forward. Gradually grasslands begin to replace some of the large forests. As  the Cretaceous Epoch continues (80-65 mya) some dinosaur families begin to  die out. About 65 mya they observe in distant space a very large  object  approaching the Earth. They watch it descending at a great speed. It is an  asteroid about 8 miles in diameter. It is ready to impact the area between the  northern and southern hemisphere of the receding continental plates. They  express extreme anxiety. They see it implode underneath the sea and on land.  The explosion sends a gigantic amount of  debris, soil, rock, water, vegetation.  It forms a mushroom cloud of this material which is carried around planet  Earth. Suddenly, the clouds containing the debris begins to circle the Earth. It  blots out the sunlight. This lasts a long, long time. Without the sunlight  vegetation, trees and plants begin to die. Without a food source the dinosaurs  begin to die. Herbivores die first. They have been the source of food for the  carnivores. They too begin to die.  Some small mammals, birds and other  smaller animals survive by living in protected places and eking out a living.  Marine life is decimated due to the lack of sunlight that provides energy for  bacteria, large reptiles and mammals. The Earth seems to be a vast cemetery for  95 per cent of all living beings, vegetation, land animals and water creatures.  The members of teams 1 and 4 are overwhelmed with fear and deeply  depressed by the massive extermination of living beings. They confront Ruah.  All seems lost. The Chapter ends with team members feeling disillusionment  and despair.) 




Paleocene Epoch (65-55 mya)


Chapter 45  — The Sad Journey to Observe the Devastating Effects of the K/T Extinction. (The  Divine Beings, Elohim, Sophia, Dabar and Ruah gather the atom mates of  Teams 1,2,3, and 4 to assess the overall damage of the K/T Extinction. They  question the Divine Beings about the futility of continuing creative activities  since periodically the Earth and its many species of  flora and fauna are subject  to large extinctions through natural catastrophes. The Divine Beings point out  that after each extinction new and better flora and fauna are created. The  atom team members question what is the final goal of their creative activity.  They are tired and want to retire from their activities. The Divine Beings urge  them on despite their deep despair and disillusionment. Photie again rallies his  colleagues to more forward to new and better creative activity. They  discuss the possibilities for the future using the remnants of this extinction as  the vehicle for new and possibly better creativity. They start some preliminary  planning. 


Chapter 46  — Team 4 Creates the Lemur from Early Prosimian Mammals and Team 1 Co-  creates New Specie of Marsupial Mammal from Earlier Species.

(Climate: Temperatures on the whole rose with  the  climate  world-wide more  moist and humid. North and south of the equator was tropical. North and south  poles were cool and  temperate.

Plates and Oceans: North and South American continents continuing to drift  away from Euro-Asian Continent. Atlantic and Pacific Oceans were opening up.  Rocky Mountains were  lifting up in North America. Oceans are warm with  marine life recovering from K/T Extinction and becoming abundant. Sharks  become the leading marine predator.

Flora: Palm trees and cacti appear. Tropics and sub-tropics cause growth in  vegetation. Deciduous forests develop in northern  temperature climates.  Angiosperms proliferate while flying  insects feed on them and help to pollinate  these plants.

Fauna: Small reptiles, amphibians, birds and insects survive extinction. They  begin to evolve new and larger species. Some species become more furious and carnivorous. World is filled with rodent-like mammals and other medium sized  mammals, both herbivorous or carnivorous. They become more numerous.

Types of Mammals:

1.  Monotremes...lay eggs to reproduce offspring.

2.  Marsupials...conceived as embryo which  spends  much time in a mother's  pouch to complete it growth to independence.

3.  Eutherians...embryo develops in a placental.

Reptiles: Most reptiles decreased drastically in size after K/T extinction.

Aquatic reptiles were, lizards, crocodiles, soft-shelled turtles.

Birds: Birds diversify after K/T extinction; cranes, hawks, pelicans, herons,  owls, ducks, pigeons, loons and woodpecker.


Team Activity: After meeting with representatives of  their prosimian species  Team 4  creates  a  lemur. At the same time Team 1, after a team  meeting  with the atom family members in their marsupial species, unite to  create a  more advanced marsupial specie.)

Include Paleomap of  Earth 65 mya.




Chapter 47  — Team 1 Creates a Larger Primitive Horse, an Ungulate, from Smaller Species  while Team 3 Creates New Grass and Grasslands Where They formerly Did not Exist.

(Climate: The Epoch goes forward. Planet Earth heats up rapidly. Eurasia is  still warm and humid, but cools toward the end of Epoch. The north and south  poles are warm and temperate. Palm trees grow in Alaska.

Plates and Oceans:  Continents drifted toward present positions. Antarctica  region is cooling down. Oceans around this continent are beginning to freeze  and send cold water north reinforcing the cooling.  The Alps push upward.  India moves away from Africa and moves for a collision with Eurasia.  Oceans are warm and teeming with marine life. 

Flora:  Earth is covered with forests due to warm temperatures. Tropical  rainforests evolve in Pacific Northwest and Europe. As the Earth cools at the  end of the Epoch newly evolved grasses grow near rivers and seashores.  Desiduous trees take over from evergreens. Cooler temperatures  begin to  reduce tropical trees and plants.

Fauna: Mammals are 60% the size of primitive Paleocene Epoch mammals.  Modern hoofed animals which are ungulates become prevalent. Planet Earth is  populated with reptiles, early rodents, marsupials, enormous crocodiles,  pythons and turtles. Whales and dolphins evolved from land animals,  the basilosaurus.


Team Activity: After consultation with atom representatives of a plant in  which they reside Team 3 helps  in the creation of grasses. At the same time  Team 1 in concert with representatives of atom families in a primitive ungulate  mammal create a  primitive horse.)




Chapter 48  — Team 4 Evolve and Create from the Lemur the Old World Monkey while Team 1.  Evolve Improvements in the Horse Specie.

(Climate: Warm temperate climate exists in North Eurasia and North America.  Ice covers the south pole, but not the north pole. Toward the end of this Epoch  a slow global cooling occurs.

Plates and Oceans: Continents continue to drift toward present position. There is  mountain building in North America and the Alps continue to rise in Europe.  There is still a northern land bridge between North America and Europe. African  plate moves  northward  toward Europe creating the Mediterranean Sea.

Flora: Angiosperm plant life continues their expansion in area and species. Sub-

tropical forests are being replaced by deciduous woodlands. Grasses move from  banks of rivers and seas into open tracts of land. In North America sub-tropical  species are dominated by cashew and  lyches trees. In temperate climates the  trees were rose, beech and pine. Legumes of pea and bean family spread . Ferns  continue in many areas along with bull rushes.

Fauna: Marine and terrestrial vertebrate faunas become modern as older forms  die out. Species in South America isolated and  evolved distinct fauna.

Team Activity:  Team 4, Team 3 and Team 1 are taken by are taken on a short  journey to look at development in Africa  where they live. Then each  Team meets with atom representatives of the flora or fauna in which they reside  Team 4 works in the evolution of the lemur to an old world monkey, while  Team 1 endeavors to evolve a larger horse, and Team 3 helps to evolve a broad  leaf tree for future forests.)




Chapter 49  — With Their Atom Associates in an Old World Monkey  Team 4 gradually Evolve  This Specie and Create an Ape, while Team 2 and their Associates Work to  Evolve the Old World Bird to a Duck.

(Climate: Climate is similar to today's climate, but warmer. England and  Northern Europe have palm trees and alligators. Australia is less warm. Epoch  begins with warming from 23 mya to 14 mya. Then there is a slow global  cooling leading to later glaciation. Antarctica which is close to its present size  continues its glaciation. Greenland has the beginning of glaciation but still has  trees  well into the next Epoch,

Plates and Oceans: Continents continue their drift toward their present  positions. Land bridge between North and South America is still missing.

Flora: Grasslands expand as forests recede due to cooler, drier climate. Grasses  diversify leading to bio-diversity. of  large herbivores including ruminants, like cattle and deer.

Fauna: Fauna very much like our modern fauna. Only in Australia and South  America, due to the fact that they are cut off from Eurasia and North America  respectively, are there a widely divergent fauna. Mammal species that are  widespead are wolves, horses, beavers, deer, camels, whales.  Species of birds  that exist are crows, ducks, owls, etc.

Activity of Teams: Dabar takes Teams 4 and 2 on a trip to view this present  Epoch to size up the present situation on the African continent. Later, Team 4  gathers associates from the old world monkey specie in which they live and  devise a new plan. They work to evolve an ape from their present monkey  specie. Team 2 carries out a similar consultation in the old world bird in which  they reside. The work to evolve a new specie, a duck.)





Chapter 50  — Together with Their Atom Associates in an Ape Specie Team 4 Evolve and Co-  create over a Period of Time an Australopithicus Mammal about 5 mya while  Team 1 and Their Atom Associates in an Ape Specie Evolve and Co-create a  New Specie,  Australopithecus Robustus (1.9 mya). 

(Climate: This Epoch is cooler and drier with four seasons similar to our modern  climate. Antarctica is bound year around with glaciation while the formation of  an ice cap is beginning in the Arctic about 3 mya. Toward the end of this  Epoch a  glaciation began in the middle latitudes.

Plates: Continents continue to drift. South America and North America are  linked by the isthmus of Panama. African plates shrinks the Tethys Sea and  creates the Mediterranean Sea. Sea level changes exposed land and bring  Alaska to Asia. India slammed into Eurasia causing the rise of Himalaya  Mountains.

Oceans: The cold  water currents from Antarctica and Arctica cool the Atlantic  Ocean. Panama' isthmus cuts off the equatorial currents that used to come to  the Atlantic Ocean.

Flora: Cooler, drier, seasonal climate impacts vegetation, reducing tropical  species world-wide. Deciduous forests proliferate in middle latitudes, but in  northern latitudes conifers and tundra cover the land. Grasslands spread  everywhere but in Antarctica. Tropical forest exist only near the equator. Dry  savannahs and deserts appear near the equator in Asia and Africa.

Fauna: Marine and terrestrial fauna are essentially modern, but more primitive  than today.

Mammals: The first hominids, the australopithecus evolves from ape specie.  In North America rodents, large mastodonts, opossums successful hoofed  animals, camel, deer, are present. Horse species recede in number.  Carnivore families diversify, with dogs and  bears doing well.  The Isthmus  of Panama allows sloths, glyptodonts and armadillos to cross over to North  American continent.

Eurasia: Rodents did well while primates declined. Elephants and slegodonts  were successful. Cows and antelopes are successful. Camels crossed from  North America to Asia. Hyenas and saber-tooth cats appeared,  joining  other predators, including dogs, bears and weasels.

Africa: Continent dominated by hoofed animals and primates continue their  evolution. The australopithecines, the first hominid, appear in this late  period of  Epoch. Rodents and elephants are successful. Cows and antelope  diversify, overtaking pigs in number of species. Early giraffes appear.  Camels migrate from North America to Asia to Africa. Horses and modern rhinoceroses  come on scene. Bears, dogs and weasels (originally in North  America) join cats, hyenas and civets as African predators, forcing hyenas to  become scavengers.

South America: North American species invaded South America, including  rodents and primates mixing with South American forms of similar fauna.  Grazing glyptodonts, sloths and armadillos do well.

Australia: Marsupials dominated mammals, including herbivores like  wombats, kangaroos and huge diprolodonts. Cat-like dogs were  carnivorous. Rodents arrived, bats did well as did ocean whales and  dolphins. Modern  duck-billed  platypus, a monotreme, appeared.

Team Activity: Sophia and Elohim take Team l and 4 on a journey to view  the Earth at the beginning of this Epoch. Team 4 with their atom associates  then decide on a course of action. They work together to evolve the ape, in  which they reside, to the first hominid, australopithecus (3.5 mya), and then,  homo habilis (2.5 mya). Team 1 with their atom associates living in an  ape species to evolve australopithecus robustus (1.9 mya).




Chapter 51  — Team 4 is Involved in Evolving Homo Habilis (2.5 mya-1.7 mya) to Homo  Erectus (1.7 mya -150,000 ya) to Homo Sapiens (150,000 ya). Team 1 and  Associates in Australopithecus Robustus end up in a blind alley.

(Climate: Repeated glacial cycles pushed to the 40th parallel in some places.  About 30% of Earth's surface is covered by ice. Huge volumes of water are  shut up in the continental ice sheets 1500-3000 meters thick. Temporarily, the  water level of oceans drop 100 meters or more over the entire surface of the  Earth. Antarctica is ice bound. Andes Mountains covered with glaciation.  Glaciation covers New Zealand, Tasmania and Southern Patagonia. Glaciation  covers Kenya, Ethiopia, Atlas Mountains, Northwest and Eastern North  America. Scandinavian ice sheet rested on north Europe and Britain, Alps  glaciated. Northern seas are frozen.


South of the ice sheets lakes accumulate due to glaciers blocking outlets. North  central North America covered by Lake Agassig. Lake Bonneville covered vast areas  western North America.

Eurasia developed large lakes due to glacier run offs and blockage of river  outlets.


African lakes larger due to decreased evaporation. Deserts drier and more  extensive. Rainfall lower due to decrease in ocean evaporation.

Major Events During this Epoch: The stages of glaciations:

1.  Glacial period.

2.  Followed by interglacial period of warming..

3.  Stadials — periods when the glacial period recedes.

4.  Interstadials—times between stadials 

All of these stages cause periodic changes in climate.

Fauna: The marine and continental fauna were essentially modern.

About 50, 000 ya humans evolved into modern man during this Epoch. About

40,000 ya operating  on a deeper level below their  physical, psychological level

Ruah vivifies and energizes  homo sapiens to come to a growing human consciousness

and self-identity. Major extinction of large mammals, mammoths, mastodons, saber-toothed cats,  glyplodons and  ground sloth, took place. There was the extinction of native  horses and camels.

Flora: the trees and vegetation were essentially modern.

Team Activity: After Ruah takes Team 4 and 1 on a journey through the Earth  of the beginning of this Epoch, Team 4 and associates evolve and create  from Homo Habilis (2.5 - 1.7 mya) and then Homo Erectus (1,7 mya - 150,000  ya) and Homo Sapiens (150,000 ya).  Team 1 and associates evolved from ape  the specie australopithecus robustus (1.9 - 1.5 mya) which ends up as a dead  end. They then turn to work on the creation of the Neanderthal Species.) 




Chapter 52  — Elohim, Sophia, Ruah and Dabar Take Teams 1, 2, 3 and 4 on a Journey of the  Earth from 10,000 Years Ago to the Present. They observe the further growth of  Human Consciousness, Culture, Religions and Economy. They Wonder about  the Future of Planet Earth. 

(Climate: 10,000 years ago the Earth was coming out of a glacial period. Sea  levels rose 110 feet in early part of Epoch due to the melting of the ice. Due to  weight of the glaciers on land and near the receded sea shores when the waters  came back after the melting of the glaciers marine species came into these new  water habitats. The retreat of the Scandinavian ice sheet caused the development  of the Baltic Sea.


A  warming began 9000 years ago and ended about 5000 years ago when human  civilizations were flourishing.


Warm period ended with a cooler period with minor glaciations until about 2000  years ago.


There was a slightly warmer period from 10th to 14th centuries,  known as  the Medieval warmup. A little ice age began in 13th -14th centuries and ended in  the midst 19th century. The Holocene was largely an interglacial period.


The atom mates prophecy that there is possibly a new period of glaciation  which may occur 3000 years from now.


If human-induced global warming continues and intensifies it may cause a  a longer super-glacial period more devastating than that in the Pleistocene  Epoch, they speculate.

Flora and Fauna: Animal and plant life did not evolve much during the  Holocene Epoch, but a major shift occurred in the distribution of animals and  plants.

The number of large animals, including mammoths, mastodons, saber-tooths  cats and horses and camel in North America, became extinct in late  Pleistocene and early Holocene Epochs.

Team Activity: The Divine Beings take Teams 1, 2, 3 and 4 on a journey  through the period 11,000 years ago to the present in order to visit the  environment of the human community from 11,000 to the present time. They  question the Divine Beings about the future of the Universe and planet Earth.


Chapter 53  — All of the twelve (12) atom characters end up in my body. I hold a conversation  with them in which I admit that I had a vision in which I followed their creative  activities during all of this time. We discuss their relationship with the Divine  Beings, about the future of the human race, planet Earth and the Universe.
