Before the Flood

From director Fisher Stevens and Academy Award-winning actor, environmental activist and U.N.

The next 5,000 years

In this guest piece, we talked to sci-fi author Drew Wagar about his predictions for the next five, 50, 500 and 5,000 years.

Being an SF writer means you have to imagine different futures, different worlds. It is generally easier to do that when you aren’t tied to the present, or you can pick another world or civilisation and use your imagination.

Surviving Earth Changes

"Now the battle between Light and Darkness is taking place, earth changes in the form of floods, earthquakes and land shifts have begun. The timetable for these changes has already been set, cosmically. What we do on earth will not stop their march. Whoever survives the battle between Light and Darkness will face even greater challenges, for just as we breathe freely again from the grip of the Dark Forces, we will see massive natural disasters destroying most major cities and populated areas. Many light bearers may then give up, but those who choose to fight on will lead survivors to certain Spiritual Regions and begin their REAL mission: society's reconstruction on firmer foundations."
