In the GalacTic Timeline you can hear the voices of our ancestors and our descendants.
They are the GalacTic Ghost of the Cosmos.
Dear Readers and Listeners,
Ever since I can remember I have always gravitated towards philosophy.
In greek the word “philo” means love and “sophy or sophia” means wisdom.
I have always been a “what if” kind of thinker and have always gravitated towards others who believe as I do.
I don’t know if it is because of my ethnicity being Greek,and the fact my lineage traces back to The Island Of Samos considered a hotbed of Pholosophers.
Pythagoras, Epicurus and Aristarchus came from Samos. Pythagoras is considered the Father of Philosophy and Aristarchus realized the Earth traveled around the sun 2000 years before Copernicus. And that was without a telescope!
I write because I believe in Humanity. I believe in Greatness! And I believe our Destiny lies among the Stars.
So here is a modern day version of “Plato’s New Republic”, if I may be so bold.
“What gives human value is not our physical substance, but what we are thinking and feeling.
We are beings that make plans and form bonds with other beings. We create art and enjoy art, and love to build and grow. We evolve inherently…”
Enjoy my Friends…

Space is The Final Frontier….How did our civilization get to this timeline without destroying ourselves?
It all began with The Great Transformation that brought about dramatic changes to our home world. In the beginning it was the beneficent Space Billionaires, who created the International Mining Federation which then created the WRCC(World ReCreation Council).New generations were introduced to abundant resources and opportunities. These First and 2nd Generations were transformed, allowing them to flourish.
Let us begin at a historic movement that was put forth by certain visionary men and women (many of whom were billionaires at the time).
Since the major cause of all the world’s problems was money driven, These eminent leaders decided that the most dramatic and effective method to address this, was by investing in space mining.
As the fossil fuel era ended, the New Era began to lift our world from many conflicts and disparity. The Great Change that came to our people could not have happened without The Space Billionaires generous endowments worldwide.
The new Space Billionaires were not shackled like many greedy corporations and squabbling and inept governments. Instead, these ambitious yet benevolent and insightful men and women poured untold investment capital into research and development to make space travel commonplace.
Space Technology grew by leaps and bounds, and as a result; space mining became the most preeminent industry on DianToz. The return on profit was mind-boggling. The riches were beyond anything anyone ever could have imagined. There were enough minerals found in just one small asteroid that could power a major city for decades.
The Space Frontier made trillionaires out of the benevolent billionaires who had no time for petty politicians who were soon swept away by the new world order.
The Great Transformation was aided by a series of events put forth by the philanthropic Interstellar Mining Foundation.
An epic decision was constituted by these exalted philanthropist that propelled DianToz to the next level- the creation of The World Re>Creation Council.
Star Day 2058:
The year the Interstellar Mining Foundation established a new governing body.
The World Re>Creation Council comes into power. Due to the well-disposed intention of The IMF, resources were allotted to create a world council made up of creative, brilliant, genuine, and compassionate minds from many walks of life with no political gain or monetary influence.
Since many of the great maladies of the past century were being eradicated, most decisions being made were now concerned with long term benefits for Diankind.
As the world progressed on its journey to enlightenment, the WR>CC became a great influence and became revered for its advisory capacity.
The World ReCreation Council had recommended that it would be vastly more resource-efficient to convert asteroids into livable bases than converting entire planets. It was a natural evolution from mining the asteroids in the late 2060’s to actually developing livable colonies for the 70’s and beyond.
Since the Alpha1 System contains 100’s of thousands of such asteroids, they can support an unlimited population and provide abounding resources. Each asteroid of choice was made ready with it’s own climate controlled environment, using a fraction of the effort and time compared to planetary colonization. One could settle on one asteroid and travel to many worlds with ease.
One such asteroid was Cerium.
Cerium was a spinning habitat that accommodated a few hundred thousand inhabitants. It was designed to soon house millions.
This tiny planetoid was primarily developed by using raw material that was mined on site. Whenever certain materials weren’t available, they were shipped from neighboring asteroids. This type of construction eliminated one of the major expenses of space colonization; the cost of lifting millions of tons of building materials into space from a planet.
TI was perfectly suited to the task..
There really wasn’t anything TI couldn’t build, all one had to do was request it. With unparalleled precision, the vast army of drones TI created were invariably busy with new construction projects.
Space Real Estate became a passion for all who desired it.
Unlocking the secrets of the stars has become the passion for many of our world citizens. An amazing undertaking if you are a productive being. It becomes a fascinating premise if your life is long and healthy.
Evolution has continued to manifest itself in The DianToz Culture. We are a race of self-motivated highly intelligent beings who cherish every new breathtaking adventure.
Our species has made astounding advances in genetic enhancement.Through genetic enhancement we have nurtured being highly inventive and original.
We have become a new race of Einsteins.
By also introducing the synthetic genome XNA to DNA, we have developed into super beings with powerful physical abilities.
We have become exotic athletes who play in space.
What brings it all in sync is our enlightened spirituality. We have embraced a far more sweeping and profound methodology that has eliminated nationalism and wars.
We respect all the universe and all within it, in all its immeasurable glory.
As different as our own trinary star system is from your uniquely single star system, there are ethereal similarities between the people of Earth and DianToz.
We have wondered (while observing your planet), if there is the possibility you are from the same primordial soup that we are.
Could we be Celestial Cousins?
Like your species, our species originally descended from primitive life forms. Through advances made through science, we have enhanced our physiology and our intelligence.
We too have suffered a long history of bloodshed, wars, prejudice and genocide. We have struggled mightily to evolve to where we are today. A striking congruence is how our civilizations have followed kindred paths.
The billionaires of your world are now reaching for the stars in your timeline. The magnanimous billionaires of our world provided us the roadmap to reach our potential.
We were destined to be a Super Race that travels the stars.
Immortality is within reach…
The Rise of The 5th Generation
One of the first acts of the WRCC was to create a more select educational system.
The 5th Generation Movement came into being and was instrumental in The Great Reformation.
With resources bountiful and robotics changing the concept of work, effectual education flourished.
Genome sequencing had increased IQ achievements to astounding levels.
Savant-like capabilities of the highest order, were becoming ever-present as well as extraordinary recollection of past events, even memories of of past generations.
Our species was developing accelerated thinking and calculation. We now had the ability for wizard-like geometric visualization, leading us to even deeper conceptualizations. The Fifth Generation of DianToz began to perform new levels of computational analyses. They had created new pathways of thinking in higher dimensions.
The Fifth Generations unique evolution had achieved preeminence partnership with Tronic`I.
To achieve the topmost level of intelligence in our species, genetic enhancements became commonplace. As scientist began editing the human genome, they gradually increased the favorable genetic variant of the IQ alleles in each of the Five Generations.
Genome sequencing had increased IQ achievements to astounding levels.
Savant-like capabilities of the highest order, were becoming ever-present as well as extraordinary recollection of past events.
By the time The 5th Generation was born, the children of DianToz were performing calculations to rival TI. Mathematical equations were created using wizard-like geometric visualization, generating even more advanced dimensions.
The Five Generations were now exhibiting the ability to think in parallel time and execute multiple analyses and trains of thought.
We have learned to control our dreams, our IQ is over 1000.
Through the science of epigenetics, we remember experiences from past generations.
Though TI is still superior in some ways, such as speed of computational analysis and physical durability, the people of DianToz have developed enhanced physical super abilities and possess profound visionary and thinking powers.
