The story begins with classic abduction motifs: stunned by a beam of light, doorway amnesia, wakes up on a bed in a strange environment. Thereafter the story trails off into an exceptionally dull narrative of his adventures on the planet Acart, to where he had been abducted by an insubordinate saucer captain who wanted him to tend the biological specimens. On Acart the contrite leadership gave him a guided tour while expounding on the population explosion.
This book was about a person from earth who was picked up and taken to this planet for 3 days. After that, we went to the trees and sat down comfortably on some stools similar to chairs that rotated.
I put my hands behind my head and, thus remained for some minutes. But in that calm, I commenced to reflect and I saw in my mind an infinity of things that I was still unable to explain satisfactorily. Brusquely, I raised my body and remained seated, resolving to ask Acorc to explain some of these things that I did not understand.
One of these was that, since I had come to Akart, I still had not seen anybody pullout money to pay for anything. We had just eaten a meal with nearly 1, people and nobody had paid anything. With relation to us, I had some kind of explanation, since we had that paper, which could perhaps be a form of requisition by the government; but To clear up this doubt I asked: "What kind of money do you have here?
We have no money here on Akart. But how do they buy things, and pay their employees? Akart was all divided up into countries and each one had their own type of government and money. That being the case when they began to feel the problems of overpopulation, those better off commenced to acquire every palm of our land and thus, those who had money obtained and owned more space than they needed to live, while those less favored by fortune were banished to the streets.
This resulted in dishonesty, robberies, several wars, and all the rest. Always because of the evils of money. The whole planet was an inferno; a few survived and others in greater number died of hunger, misery and pains. Then when it seemed like all was lost, there emerged the greatest scientist of all times here on Akart. Once discovered, he and two more of his followers, invented the arms which we still have. He threatened all of the countries, that if they could not find a common denominator for their differences, he would use the weapon.
He presented a global plan for the salvation of the planet. Then all or almost all accepted and obeyed him. His first step was to abolish all the frontiers, making all of Akart only one country; the second was to level all of the cities to equal rights and obligations.
To obtain this, he had to get rid of the money, and this automatically ended profits, speculations, robbery, usury and many other things, proceeding from money. It is as I said. Ninety percent of the population of Akart lived in oppression and misery, and thus they understood his ideas and supported him. The remaining ten percent could do nothing, and finally, they accepted also. And as the people helped to install this regime, the sane people had the right to select their governors.
They proposed that the scientist be selected, but he would not accept, however he indicated one son of his. That one was selected and became the first Governor of all of Akart. Since the scientist was called the man of the Sun, thanks to his discoveries, his son was called the Son of the Sun. From this proceeded the tradition of calling our president the 'Son of the Sun'. For that reason? It is not, as you can see.
How do you do it? There is enough work for those who are apt that they can have all that they need or desire, without the immoralities. Here, it is a crime for anyone to refuse to work. We came to the conclusion, that money is the work of the evil doings. Without it many evils are avoided. The people work so many hours per day or night and for the hours that are left, they can go where they like, eat or drink in any public place, without extravagances, and do as they please.
In every year there is a period of rest; then they can travel throughout all of Akart -- and see and do what they please, traveling by whatever means they prefer. For this there is enough available, which is furnished by the Government. And they have more: What one citizen has, they all have, because here all that is produced obeys a global plan; such as homes, the ships, dress, alimentation, etc. Then, they can stay in one place the rest of their life, or travel wherever they want, live in one fixed place or live in a hotel, or various hotels, as they choose.
They have all the assistance and attention they require for the rest of their life. Note: When they go on interplanetary voyages, their laws stipulate that it is a crime to bring back terrestrials on the planet they visit, back to Akart.
The commander of the ship that brought the earthman, Artur, to Akart, he was demoted in rank to an operator. Here the laws are made by man, and those that disobey must pay for their disobedience.
Here we have neither highs nor lows. All are as equals, even the Son of the Sun their governor. When he finishes his days as governor, for which he was selected by all the people, he will return to the plow the fields, if that is from where he had come. It is of that which we make our solar ships, like that in which you traveled with me, and other things as well. It has many other uses. Today, there are four factions. Until the s prior, there were two rival factions. Emerging later was a third faction, but the third was still sketchy.
The Akart ETs have been silent for many years now. They are still monitoring the planet Earth. They believe that we waste too much time fighting, and should have been at peace long ago. If instead of using the nuclear energy for destructive ends and they used it constructively, our hopes would be nullified. Let me explain in what manner. You must be aware that an atomic war on Earth is inevitable, and, even if we wanted to instigate it, we could, since it would only be necessary to intercept an airplane or ship of either faction, that the one would judge that it was the other.
But, we are not going to intervene in any such manner, because we have come to the conclusion that they would not resist for much time the curiosity to see the foul-up that caused the situation, and, when this happens, none of them will escape the devastation, because with only a few of those bombs, the whole terrestrial globe will be contaminated.
Once this happens, we can peacefully take over the whole planet, because those few who remain will be in no position to offer resistance; on the contrary, they will welcome us. They would attack each other mutually; we are certain of this, because we know all the secrets of the terrestrials, against which they know practically nothing concerning us.
Perhaps it was to test my loyalty? The few who survive, due to your knowledgeable aid, will know something of our system of government, our manner of life and being, and thus will not offer us resistance, which would be useless to try.
And ever so often they rotate their staff there. They have built a huge space platform several miles in diameter some distance away from their home planet. This station they use as a stop over point, to station thousands of space ships, etc.
Their spaceships travel over miles per second or over 18, miles per minute. This group has anti-matter beam weapons. Earth terrestrials will not have anti-matter beam weapons until about the year A. It will be the last war the earthman fight, before he realizes peace is the only way. Now, once you have done the mischief by your hands, nothing is more logical than that we benefit you. We Akartians, by force of circumstances, have learned to be realists.
This question is comparable with a fable that my father always told when I was a boy, which is as follows: "A man who had innumerable cages thought it well to place birds in almost all of them.
He had two hanging one beside the other. In these two cages the birds were multiplying; one came to the point where there was no more room for more, but they lived well adjusted and were each contented with a place to sit. Thus all those that the man allowed to hatch, also were given the means to live. Contrary to the first, the second, had plenty of space, however they commenced to quarrel; each one wanted the better place; the stronger lived comfortably and the weak had to get used to the corners and be satisfied with the crumbs.
The roost there was left to the strong. Each one wanted to be better and to control. Finally a struggle broke out, so fierce that they mutually destroyed each other, and with them also most of the weak ones, who had nothing to do with this.
The man, on seeing this, gave access to those of the other cage of which he moved half to the first. These went there and reconstructed the broken nests, resuscitating some of those who had escaped with their lives, and thus they were able to live in peace for many years, without worrying about the problem of space, as much in one cage as the other. It is somewhat similar to Earth and Akart. After some minutes of silence between us, I asked: "Do you, sir, not feel that you have erred in showing and explaining to me, all this with respect to your arms and means of locomotion?
Since once I return to Earth, if I am given the time to do this in the manner in which you have explained all, I think the government would give me the necessary means, and I have the impression that I could come to a conclusion. But, please, do not speak to me of similar things anymore, because if anyone here suspected what we are doing, perhaps you would have to live here on Akart the rest of your days of life.
I cannot say anything more, because I cannot judge their capabilities, neither in one thing or another. It is scarcely a supposition. How far outside our solar system is the next innabitated system, and does that world's inhabitants know of our Earth? Ptaah - The next inhabited system is around five light years away from Earth. Different worlds in that system are inhabited by human forms of life, who differ little from your races. In their development, they are some years in advance of that of Earth human beings, spiritually as well as technologically.
They have already achieved space flight in primitive form, and also do visit Earth.
