"You are now at the time when you are moving out of the past delineated in this book, and moving into a wondrous new future. At such times, it is appropriate for you to take a look backward and reevaluate what you have experienced. Therefore we have prepared this book to present you with a new and different way of looking at the history of Earth. I hope that this eases your path into the marvelous future that awaits you. All my love."
