Date and Time Right Now:


The ascension and dominion of humans over the natural world can be credited to three salient attributes that humans possess:

  1. The first attribute is their upright posture, which permits the free use of their hands
  2. The second attribute is their powerful brains
  3. The third attribute is their extensive usage of language

Possessing these three attributes, humankind has flourished. Humans have stood above and beyond all other life forms on Earth. Humans even have begun to ponder the origins and meaning of Existence itself. Human tenure on Earth remains a work in progress. Will humans produce a future of Heaven on Earth, or does a future of Hell await humankind? I think that humans are equipped with the intelligence to design their fate or destiny [into one which can be likened to a Heaven-like existence for humans].

The S.O.S. Band's "It's A Long Way To The Top" and "Do It Now" plus Barry White's "Change," Earth, Wind & Fire's "Faces," and Vangelis's "Aries" reflect the triumph of humanity over adversity on Earth. I think that humans will choose a future of Heaven on Earth rather than choosing a future of Hell.

For, as I noted on the "Final Frontier" page of this website, where "there's a will" [to attain that which can be likened to a Heaven-like existence for humans], then there exists "a way". In other words, for as certain as you are alive right now in the 21st century, it is never too late in life for you to make a sincere "U Turn". It is never too late in life to "Hang It Up" and "Turn It Into Something Good". It is never too late to "Reach". It is never too late to "Change".


Achieving Heaven on Earth right now for the living is easier said than done given the challenges that humans face. There are biological challenges to overcome (namely, the interrelationship of humans to the elements of water, air, and earth; the interrelationship of humans to Mother Nature's finite natural resources; and the interrelationship of humans to all other life forms on Earth). There are sociological challenges to overcome (namely, the interrelationship of humans to one another given the cultural, social, religious, language, ideological, and racial differences that divide them). There are international challenges to overcome (namely, the occasional nationalistic pride and geopolitical ambitions of certain national leaders to conquer territory and wage war against other nations even if it requires using all kinds of conventional, nuclear, biological and chemical weapons). Stated simply, achieving Heaven on Earth right now for the living will not be an easy feat for humans to accomplish. Some humans have concluded that these biological, sociological, and international challenges are too formidable to overcome; they have opted to retreat into the safety and comfort of their residences while leaving it to God to deal with these challenges.

How will humans effect change on Earth? How will humans move from the here and now to futuristic living? For starters, humans can begin by choosing the civilized way of life. The essence of the civilized way of life is consensus, adherence to the rule of law, and living in peace with all members of society. The rule of law is the glue that binds civilized society together. Government is the caretaker, legislator, moderator, and enforcer of the rule of law. Members of civilized society typically would petition the government for redress of various societal grievances. The main source of petitioning is through the process of holding peaceful, orderly, and fair elections. Other sources of petitioning include seeking legal redress through the judicial system; holding public assemblies and peaceful protests; complaining to political representatives with phone calls and letters; participating in surveys and opinion polls, and so forth. The social compact in civilized society is that everybody agrees to honor and abide by the rule of law. The social contract is everybody in civilized society agreeing not to engage in activities such as anarchy and barbarism.

The key to humans transforming Earth into some type of paradise appears to be a combination of factors. These factors include things such as the will to do so, money, a master plan, a division of labor, a specialization of labor, cooperation, and education. The key also involves all humans pursuing a career niche in civilized society. Ant society serves a model for humans to emulate. Ant society offers but one demonstration of how humans could go about the task of transforming Earth into some semblance of a heavenly paradise for the living.

A sample master plan for Heaven on Earth for the living

Obviously, a global undertaking of this magnitude would be prohibitively expensive. Where will the money come from to pay for transforming Earth into a heavenly paradise? In developed countries, a well-structured tax system already exists. Some of the money would be raised through taxes. If humans could agree to devote their energies to transforming Earth into a heavenly paradise, then such a development would imply that nations have agreed to stop fighting with one another. The millions and billions of dollars that nations spend each year preparing for war (i.e., annual military expenditures) now could be allocated to the purpose of rebuilding Earth. Some of the poorer nations sit atop huge stockpiles of natural resources. Sophisticated yet eco-friendly anchor industries could be built around extracting and selling those abundant natural resources on world markets. Some of the proceeds from the sales could be used to pay for the transformation of those poorer nations.

In the case of poorer nations, the idea would be to focus on the development of the nation's anchor industry or anchor industries. If an undeveloped country happens to be rich in natural resources, say, rubber, for instance, then the idea would be to modernize its rubber industry. When the undeveloped country begins to produce and export its rubber worldwide, the expectation would be that auxiliary businesses such as factories, offices, stores, banks, and so forth, would spring up to augment the anchor industry. The idea also would be for the national government to tax some of the profits derived from the private rubber industry and to use those tax monies to finance public goods and services such as such as the building of schools, hospitals, roads, water treatment facilities, and so forth. Eventually, the multiplier effect would take shape whereby there would be an automatic expansion of production and employment in the economy resulting from auxiliary business activities and resulting from the production of public goods and services. A case in point would be how some oil-rich Middle East countries used the anchor natural resource of oil as a springboard to become developed countries. futuristic living

How do humans ever expect to achieve the lofty goal of colonizing outer space—let alone befriending and living among space aliens—if they cannot live united and get along as a species right here on Earth? Humans must work as a cohesive team to survive on an alien planet. Equally, humans must work as a cohesive team to preserve life on Earth including their own species.

Watch (Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Trailer)

Many humans do not realize that one of the reasons why the Earth and humans may not have been visited by any space aliens yet is because it takes a very long time to reach Earth from outer space. It would take a mind-boggling feat of engineering for space aliens to construct a vessel that is mechanically capable of safely traveling across interstellar and intergalactic space for trillions of miles and also capable of sustaining life for thousands or even millions of years.

It was Albert Einstein who revealed to humans that, among other things, nothing in the known Universe could travel faster than the speed of light. Assume that those space aliens have not disproved Albert Einstein's theory of relativity. Also, assume that those space aliens have not discovered a way to travel faster than the speed of light or have not figured out a way to circumvent the speed-of-light barrier. With Albert Einstein's revelation about the speed of light in mind, that is, the fact that nothing can travel faster than the speed of light, it becomes a matter of doing the math or crunching the numbers to determine exactly what it would take for anything in the Universe to navigate across interstellar and intergalactic space. It becomes immaterial whether it is an alien spacecraft or a human spacecraft.

If those space aliens (a) were capable of traveling at the speed of light (that is, rounded to 186,000 miles per second or 670 million miles per hour), (b) resided in the Milky Way galaxy, and (c) departed their heavenly body for Earth today, then it would take those space aliens up to 100,000 years into the future before they arrived on Earth, that is, depending on their route and place of departure. If those space aliens happened to reside in another galaxy and departed for Earth right now, then it would take them well over 2 million years into the future before they arrived on Earth. The speed of light in miles per hour can be derived as follows: Speed of light = 186,000 miles per second * 3,600 seconds in an hour = 669,600,000 miles in an hour. To determine how far light can travel in a year, simply plug the corresponding values for variables r and t into the distance formula [d (distance) = r (rate) * t (time)]. The updated formula becomes: d = 186,000 (miles per second) * 31,536,000 (seconds in a 365-day year) = 5,865,696,000,000 (trillion miles in a year that light travels).

The distance from Earth to Proxima Centauri, one of its closest stars, is computed as follows: 4 light-years away = 4 * 5,865,696,000,000 miles light travels in a year = 23,462,784,000,000 trillion total miles. The closest galaxy to Earth is Andromeda. Andromeda is estimated to be slightly more than 2 million years away (or roughly 11.7 quintillion miles away) from Earth. The distance from Earth to Andromeda is computed as follows: 2,000,000 light-years away = 2,000,000 * 5,865,696,000,000 miles light travels in a year = 11,731,392,000,000,000,000 quintillion total miles.

The Helios spacecrafts are the fastest space-faring vessels that humans have constructed to date. The Helios spacecrafts traveled at a speed of roughly 157,000 miles per hour, which computes to a distance of 1,375,320,000 billion miles per year (or roughly 0.023447% of the speed of light). The distance that a Helios-type spacecraft could travel in a year is computed as follows: d = 157,000 miles per hour * 24 hours * 365 days = 1,375,320,000 billion miles per year.

If those alien spacecrafts also were not capable of traveling any faster than the Helios spacecrafts, then it would take those space aliens much longer to reach Earth. For instance, rather than the 4 years that it would take to travel from Earth to Proxima Centauri at the speed of light, it would take a Helios-like spacecraft slightly more than 17,000 years to make the 23.5 trillion-mile trip from Earth to Proxima Centauri. To compute the amount of time that it would take for a Helios-type spacecraft to travel from Earth to Proxima Centauri, the formula is as follows: t (time) = d (distance) / r (rate), or t (time of arrival) = 23,462,784,000,000 (trillion miles away) / 1,375,320,000 (trillion miles per year) = 17,060 (thousand years of time).

Rather than the 2,000,000 years that it would take to travel from Earth to Andromeda at the speed of light, it would take a Helios-like spacecraft roughly 8.5 billion years to make the 11.7 quintillion-mile trip from Earth to Andromeda. To compute the amount of time that it would take for a Helios-type spacecraft to travel from Earth to Andromeda, the formula is as follows: t (time) = d (distance) / r (rate), or t (time of arrival) = 11,731,392,000,000,000,000 (quintillion miles away) / 1,375,320,000 (trillion miles per year) = 8,529,936,306 (billion years of travel time).

Watch (When Aliens Attack)

In other words, if space aliens happen to be residing somewhere in the Andromeda galaxy and are preparing to depart today for a visit to Earth, and if those space aliens were not capable of traveling faster than a speed of 157,000 miles per hour, then it would be another 8.5 billion years into the future before they reached Earth. And, as I noted on the "Final Frontier" page of this website, most scientists are in agreement that, in another 4 or 5 billion years from now, the Sun is certain to explode. When the Sun explodes, the Earth will be incinerated and will be no more. By the time the space aliens reached the Solar System if traveling at a speed of 157,000 miles per hour, then the Solar System would no longer exist. The reader should keep in mind that there are all kinds of technical problems to overcome as a spaceship begins to approach the speed of light.

The reader also should keep in mind that the Earth is estimated to be about 4.5 billion years old. Civilized humans are estimated to be approximately 10,000 years old. The implication of these ages is this: If space aliens arrived on Earth from the Andromeda galaxy, say, 100 years from now, then this occurrence would suggest that the space aliens had perfected speed-of-light space travel perhaps some 2 million or more years ago. Humans would not have existed when the space aliens had departed their home heavenly body en route to Earth.

I know that motion pictures such as The Chronicles of Riddick (David Twohy) tend to depict the nefariously inspired space aliens as a force to be reckoned with once they invade Earth. After traveling for millions of years and quintillions of miles, I am not completely convinced that the arrival of the space aliens will unfold as these motion pictures tend to depict.

Watch (The Chronicles Of Riddick Trailer)

Contrary to periodic media accounts of UFO sightings, I seriously doubt if those space aliens would travel across the galaxy simply to play games of hide-and-seek and peek-a-boo with a handful of humans. Should those space aliens arrive on Earth one day, I think that the world would instantly and simulanteously witness it. I do not think that those space aliens would try to conceal their arrival on Earth except secretly letting one or two individuals know about their presence.
