On another world, a civilization far evolved beyond us in intellect and science is nonetheless spiritually and socially stunted. Violence and war have been unknown to them until recently. They ask, "How can this be endured or dealt with, or even survived?" To find this answer they send an involuntary student to a distant world (Earth) inhabited by similar beings that seem inured and adapted to violence and war. If they don't learn the answer they are likely destined to disappear from existence. But is the student's answer more deadly than the threat itself? Inspired by a messianic vision she is viewed by some as being the manifestation of the Divine will, and by others as the very incarnation of all they feared and hoped to avoid. She is either the coming of hell on Galrote or perhaps the only salvation of both the conquering and the conquered.

About the Author
This story is an exploration of the question, "If the Great Personages of the past (such as Moses, Christ, Muhammad, Buddha, Krishna, Zarathustra, Deganawida, Quetzalcoatl and today Baha'ullah) were what and whom They claim to be, shouldn't Their influences reach beyond this little world?"
In "The Hadrite Student" Baxter tries to allow for the full range of opinions from everything being simply the workings of an indescribably complex clock-work universe, to belief in an intelligent Creator without apologizing for the undeniable fact of the impacts these Persons have had on Human history regardless of the verity of Their claims.
Baxter is a relatively private person who avoids such public exposure as Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin but he can be contacted by email at email@example.com
