All goes well and our band of adventurers begin to knit together as a team enjoying meeting new people and activities such as white-water rafting, mountaineering, and skiing. It is while participating in these activities that a disaster strikes that almost brings the trek to a fatal end saved by the intervention of monks who possess a mystifying cure.

The group decide to conceal their findings choosing to abandon one adventure to that of exploring this new world. They soon discover that the planet is one of a twin that orbits a star, part of a small cluster which they call ‘The Five Loaves and Two Fishes’. The planet no longer has animal life which became extinct sometime in the past due to a snowball period in the planet’s history. They decide to front their project by creating a seed bank to enable them to introduce earth biological species to Newearth.
One enigma after another has to be overcome requiring new members to be added to the team until suspicion is aroused and a diplomatic deal has to be made. This grants the team freedom to further expand the scientific expedition until its numbers exceed ten thousand.

This book is neither fact nor fiction. It’s something in the middle. It’s about the universe and time and is a book for ordinary inquisitive people to read. Curious people who feel disconnected from much of the complex and jargon-heavy logic about the universe and time that comes from scientific or religious quarters. But the contents of this book might interest a broad segment of scientists causing them to raise their voices, hands and arms in agreement or most probably disagreement. Words like rubbish, stupid, and it’s a naïve falsification may be uttered. So be it.
This book is readable for the uninformed because most of it is in plain text and pictures with some elementary mathematics sprinkled here and there. Various simple questions are posed as to why our universe exists and how it happened. That happening was what the book terms a grey swan moment. Time will not tell if that moment was even a moment because time is an earthly fabrication of our imagination and is not real. Read this book and gain a fresh perspective on what has, is and might happen.
Humanity has long dreamed of travelling and settling among the stars. The fact is that like any other star, the Sun, will one day succumb to gravity and run out of its primary fuel, hydrogen. When this happens, life on earth will become impossible, as the sun envelops our planet. Understandably then, many have considered the possibility of colonising planets beyond our solar system in order to ensure the survival of ‘Earthians’ (my moniker for humans born on planet Earth) beyond the fixed lifetime of our sun.Zoom or Doom imagines such a journey but on a far grander scale — expanding beyond our galaxy. Marx Afaro Zytan, an oddball who appears nervous while relaxed but serene when nervous, is a ruthless man and an inhabitant of planet Zist. The book follows his story, which revolves around the revolutionary scientific discovery of a special type of fuel system that can transform matter into energy. This not only enables the possibility of light-speed travel for space-ships, but intergalactic travel and even time travel.

Central to the future direction of mankind on planet Earth is the belief that the origination and design of the Universe and the plan by which it operates are the work of one almighty creator. If one follows the view that a motor car comes into existence by way of the design and manufacture process or that a building is the end result of the design and construct process, then it is a simple progression to believe that the Universe and its modus operandi were designed and brought into existence by one superior being. Peter Vanser, an avid star gazer and amateur astronomer, has for several months been watching rapidly moving lights over the Pacific Ocean off the Gold Coast in Australia. The Commanding Officer of a mission from the Planet Gronorg, in the Orion Constellation, has been attempting to communicate with Earthian leaders via coded transmissions, all to no avail.The mission commander, Mar Zedok, wants to land on Earth to convey important information on an impending attack by an aggressive alien civilization. Vanser is approached personally by a Gronorgan operative and is invited to visit Gronorg to experience their social fabric and intelligence.
