 Here is a true enough myth of our world. It begins with the notion of a soliton of improbability. Let us imagine that these are events which only happen once, and since theyonly happen once they are not legitimate objects for scientific inquiry because objects of scientific inquiry must happen at least twice. But this is a phenomenon which happens onlyonce and we can visualize it as a kind of particle. These solitons of the utterly improbablecrisscross the universe occasionally colliding with an existing event system. When theycollide with an existing event system, that event system bifurcates into two event systemsin order to preserve a kind of parity of probability - a term I invented that need not betaken seriously. But in the pursuit of the preservation of the parity of probability, thesoliton creates a temporal bifurcation.OK, we have reached the top of the steep learning curve in this concept system. Nowhere's the good news: the soliton of improbability which interacted with our worldoccurred two thousand years ago in the phenomenon of the Immaculate Conception. Anevent that I think you and I can agree is highly improbable! But let us take it at face valueand see if we can work with it. When the Immaculate Conception occurred through thecollision of the soliton of improbablility with this Galilean village girl called Marian orMary, in one world she became impregnated with a figure destined for a great religiousand political future: our world. The world in which Christ was born, became a young man,taught his message, and went to his execution around 27 AD. Another world sprang intoexistence at the moment of the Immaculate Conception and in that world nothingwhatsoever happened to this young Galilean girl. She continued to live with Joseph. Hecontinued to make fine furniture. Eventually they were able to move to the better side of Nazareth. And that was their story.So you see I'm suggesting that at the time of Christ, a parallel world came intoexistence that knew nothing of Christ. And consequently the forces which shatteredRoman civilization never came into existence in that parallel world. Instead, Greek scienceand mathematics continued to enrich Roman engineering, government, and theories of civil polity. Roman civilization continued to develop. The wonderful female mathematicalgenius Hypathia was able to complete her career. She was stoned to death by Christians inour world, yet in the parallel world she lived to old age and was able to elaborate thecalculus some thousand years before Newton. This meant that by the sixth century or sothis Greco-Roman world had ship building and navigational techniques that were

possessed in our world only by Elizabethan times. Roman navigators inspired by theperfection of their science set sail to explore the world, and in that parallel continuum theydiscovered the Maya just as they were reaching their classic climax in the jungles of Central America. Approximately nine hundred years after the bifurcation into the two timestreams, a Greco-Roman-Mayan civilization came into being in the parallel continuum.The great influence on the Greco-Roman psychology from this cultural adventure was thesophisticated use of psychedelic drugs for the purposes of religion and self-exploration. Inthe vision in which this idea was shown to me by the powers of the other side, I actuallysaw a Roman imperial administrator and his retinue arriving at Tikal for the coronation of Three-Flint-Knife in the ninth century; a great confluence of imperial majesty as thegreatest king of the Mayan cultural climax received his European counterpart, anddocuments, codices, mathematicians, instruments of navigation, and pharmacy weretraded.Well to make a long story short, the parallel world continued to develop, and with itssophisticated psychology based on psychedelic drugs they soon became aware by studyingthe dreams of psychotics in their world, they slowly became aware I should say, of ourexistence. They figured out what we do not know, which is there was a world bifurcationand that there is a parallel time stream with a different situation evolving in it. Theyfurther, by extension of their more advanced understanding of atomic and particle physics,came by around the year 1900 in our continuum to the hypothesis that major releases of hard radiation would penetrate across the energy barrier of the two time streams. Theyconducted an experiment to test this hypothesis. They decided to set off a small atomicdevice in their continuum, and to monitor the dreams of sensitive people in our continuumto see if there was evidence of an awareness of this explosion. The experiment wasactually carried out in 1906 by our time reckoning. This is what we call the Tunguska blastthat occurred in Siberia. After the blast in the parallel continuum those who had conductedthe test were able to monitor the dreams of Siberian Shamans and they saw hundreds of square miles of trees smashed flat by a mighty explosion. Hence they realized that theirtheoretical assumption that explosions in one continuum would affect life in the other werein fact true. Then they became quite alarmed because as they continued to monitor thedreams of human beings in the parallel continuum, they came to slowly understand thatprimitive though we may be in our world we were coming to a grasp of atomic chemistryand thermonuclear fission and fusion.Fearing for the destruction of their own world they began, and have in fact carried outthrough this century, a massive scientific research project to attempt to reach us tocommunicate to us the true situation, and to depotentiate our nuclear arsenals in order tosave their own world, which is now in fact the administrative center of some sixteenintegrated star systems in this part of the galaxy. In other words, they are some twelvehundred years in advance of us technologically and in the use of psychedelic substancesbecause they never experienced the history-freezing eschatology that the rise of Christianity created in our world. The last part of the myth relates to the Mayan calendrical
