Book 5. Who are we? (2001)
The richest state
“Hold on, Anastasia, I don’t understand how the state as a whole suddenly got rich. You yourself said that the produce from family domains wasn’t subject to any kind of tax, so what has made the state so rich?”
“How can you possibly ask what? Think about it more carefully, Vladimir. You are an entrepreneur, after all.”
“Well, since I am an entrepreneur, I happen to know that the state has always tried its hardest to squeeze just a little more tax out of every citizen. And here you tell me it’s gone and axed thirty million families from the tax roll. The families, of course, could have got very rich, but at the same time it should mean bankruptcy for the state.”
“The state did not go bankrupt. First, unemployment was completely eliminated, since any Man who found himself without a job in the industrial, commercial or public sectors (as we know them today) was able to devote himself either fully or partially to work — or putting it more specifically, to co-creation in his own domain. The total elimination of unemployment freed up significant financial resources.
“The abundant supply of food provided by the families with their own domains spared the state from any kind of expenditure on agricultural production. But, more importantly, thanks to the vast number of families who established their domains in accordance with the Divine plan, the Russian state received an income significantly higher than it realises today from the sale of oil, gas and other resources traditionally regarded as its basic sources of income.”
“What could possibly bring it more income than oil, gas and arms sales?”
‘A great deal, Vladimir — for example, air, water, ethers, loveliness, contact with the energy of co-creation, the con-templation of pleasant things.”
“It’s still not completely clear, Anastasia. Couldn’t you put it in more specific terms? Where did the money come from?”
“I shall try my best. The extraordinary changes taking place in Russia attracted the attention of many people all over the globe. The world press began writing about the major change in lifestyle most Russians were experiencing. This became a burning issue for a good deal of the world’s population. A huge flood of tourists began pouring into Russia. There were so many that wanted to come, it was impossible to accept them all, and many had to wait their turn, even as long as several years. The Russian government was forced to limit the length of stays by foreign tourists, since many of them, especially the elderly, were attempting to stay months and even years here.
“The Russian government collected huge levies from each foreigner entering the country but this by no means reduced the number of those applying to come.”
“But why did they want to visit here in person, if they could see it all on TV? You did say the world press was enlightening people about life in the new Russia.”
“People all over the world wanted more — they wanted to breathe Russia’s air which had become so health-giving. They wanted to drink its living water. To take a taste of fruits unlike any other in the world. To talk with the people who were stepping forward into God’s millennium and thereby both slake their souls’ thirst and heal their suffering bodies.”
‘And what unusual kinds of fruit appeared? What were they called?”
“The same as they were called before, only the quality was completely different. Tou already know, Vladimir, how much better tomatoes and cucumbers taste when they are grown in the open air under the direct rays of the Sun, in comparison to hothouse varieties. Well, fruits and vegetables grown in soil free from harmful chemicals are even tastier and more healthful. And they have even greater healing properties when grown in the company of different kinds of herbs and trees. The mood and attitude of the grower also plays a role. And the ethers contained in the fruit also have a tremendous benefit for Man.”
“What do you mean by ethers?”
“Ethers are fragrances. A fragrance you detect signifies the presence of an ether which feeds not only the body but also the invisible essence of a Man.”
“Still not clear. Are we talking about the brain, perhaps?” “One could say that ethers strengthen mental energy and feed the soul. Such fruits were grown only in Russia, and the greatest benefit is realised when used by Man on the day they are picked, and that is why so many people have come to Russia from all over the world — to taste these fruits, among other things.
“Produce from the family domains very quicldy took over the market, squeezing out not only imported fruits and vegetables but those that were still growing in the ordinary large- acreage fields. People began to appreciate and feel the difference in the quality of the produce. Pep si-Cola and the other soft drinks so popular today were replaced by fruit beverages made from natural berries. And even the most sophisticated and expensive liqueurs in today’s society could not compete with the sweet wines prepared from natural berries right in the domains.
“These drinks also contained beneficial ethers, since the people preparing them in their domains knew that once the berries were picked, they had only a few minutes to begin making them into fruit liqueurs and wines.
‘An even greater source of income for families living in their domains was the sale of medicinal plants which they gathered from their groves, gardens and surrounding meadows.
“In time the harvests of medicinal herbs from Russia became a far more sought-after commodity than drugs manufactured abroad — but only the herbs collected in the family domains and not those grown in specialised operations on huge tracts of land. A herb grown in a huge field among others of its own kind cannot take from the soil and surrounding space all the ingredients that are needful and useful to Man. Even though the produce from the domains cost a great deal more than what was produced by the so-called industrial method, people all over the world still preferred it.”
‘And why did the owners of the domains jack up the price?”
“The minimum price was set by the Russian government.” “The government? Why would it care? It doesn’t get anything from family domain production. Why would it take pains to enrich individual families?”
“You must remember, Vladimir, that the state itself consists of individual families, who, as the need arose, took to financing the infrastructure network in their communities — schools and roads, for example. Sometimes they would put money into projects on a national scale. Politicians and economists would publish their projects, but only those which people put their money into passed.”
“Tell me, what kinds of projects were the most popular among the majority?”
“The buying up of chemical conglomerates abroad, arms factories and scientific institutes.”
“Now there’s a switch! You told me that these families had a conscious awareness of the Divine, a sense of goodness.
That it was thanks to them that the whole world was being transformed into a garden of Paradise, and now you’re talking about buying up chemical plants and arms manufacturing companies.”
“But these ventures were not aimed at producing weapons or harmful chemicals, but at destroying the factories making them. The Russian government was involved in the redirection of the international monetary flow The energy of money, which had been feeding what was fatally harmful for mankind, was now aimed at the liquidation of the same.”
“And what happened — did the Russian government have enough money for such extravagant projects?”
“It did. Russia not only became the richest country in the world but it became immeasurably richer than all the other countries. The whole world’s capital started flowing into Russia. Not only the wealthy, but even people of modest means flocked to deposit their savings exclusively in Russian banks. Many wealthy people simply willed their savings to the development of Russian projects — these were people who realised that the future of all mankind depended upon these projects being carried out. Foreign tourists who had visited Russia and seen the new Russians could no longer live by their former set of values. They excitedly told their friends and acquaintances about what they had seen, and the flood of tourists kept getting bigger, and bringing ever increasing profit to the Russian state.”
“Tell me, Anastasia, those people, you know, who live in Siberia, what projects could they undertake to become as wealthy as the people in central Russia? After all, in Siberia the summer is shorter and you won’t get very rich on growing garden produce.”
“People in Siberia, Vladimir, also began setting up their domains. Siberians used their plots of ground to grow things suitable to their climate, and they had one big advantage over residents of more southern climes. Siberian families received state allotments in the taiga, and each family took care of its own lands and harvested their gifts. And out of Siberia came health-giving berries and herbs. And... cedar nut oil.”
‘And how much did cedar oil fetch on the international market, in terms of dollars?”
“One tonne of cedar oil cost four million dollars.”
“Wow! Finally it was priced at its true worth, which is eight times higher than what it was fetching before. I wonder how much of this cedar oil the Siberians would have prepared in a season?”
“In the year you are looking at now: three thousand tonnes were produced.”
“Three thousand?! Wow! That means they would have got twelve billion dollars just for harvesting cedar nuts.”
“More, in fact. You forgot that pressed cedar nuts can be made into excellent flour.”
“So how much would an average Siberian family make in a year from their labours — in terms of dollars?”
“On average, three to four million dollars.”
“Wowee! And you mean to tell me they still don’t pay any
“No tax at all.”
“In that case, where on earth could they spend money like that? Back when I worked in Siberia, I saw that anyone in a Siberian village who wasn’t lazy could provide enough for himself by hunting and fishing. But here you’re talking huge sums!”
“Like other Russians, they invested their money in national government projects. For example, initially, when the Russian people still had not discovered how to control the movement of the clouds, a great deal of the Siberians’ money went to the purchase of aeroplanes.”
‘Aeroplanes? What would they need planes for?”
“To ward off clouds containing harmful deposits. These clouds would form over countries where deadly industrial pollution was still permitted. They were fought off by Siberian aviators.”
‘And what about hunting — has it been confined to reserved family allotments in the taiga?”
“Siberians have totally stopped all hunting and the killing of animals. Many of them built summer residences on their allotments and spent their summers collecting herbs, berries, mushrooms and nuts. Young creatures of the forest right from birth saw human beings as not a threat to them, and got accus-tomed to Man as an integral part of their territory They began communicating with people, making friends with them.
“The Siberians taught many creatures to help them. For example, squirrels would throw down cedar cones with ripe nuts onto the ground, which gave the squirrels no end of pleasure. Some people trained bears to pull heavy baskets and sacks with nuts, and clear away trees felled by the wind.” “Really! They even got bears helping!”
“There is nothing surprising in that, Vladimir. In times which people today call ‘ancient’, a bear was one of the most irreplaceable helpers in the household. He would use his paws to dig edible tubers out of the ground and put them in a large basket, and then take it upon himself to drag the basket on a rope to a pit cellar hollowed out of the ground not far from Man’s dwelling. He would climb trees in the forest to fetch log-hives filled with honey and bring them back to Man’s dwelling. He would take Man’s children into the forest to gather raspberry treats, as well as do a lot of other things for the household.”
“Wow! The bear replaced both the tractor and the plough, and brought home things to eat, and minded the children!” ‘And all winter long he slept, needing no maintenance or repairs. And when spring came he would return to Man’s
dwelling once more, and Man would treat him to the fruits of the previous autumn.”
“I see what’s going on: a reflex was trained in those bears to make it seem as though Man had stored up those supplies just for them.”
“You could call it a reflex, if that helps you gain a clearer un-derstanding, but you could also say that is the way it was designed by the Father. I will only tell you that tubers were not the most important thing for the bear in the springtime.” “What was, then?”
‘After sleeping all alone in his lair the whole winter long, when he awoke in the spring the first thing the bear did was hurry over to see Man, to feel Man’s caresses and hear his praise. All the creatures need Man’s caresses.”
“If dogs and cats are any example, you’re right. But what about the other creatures in the taiga — what did they do?” “Gradually all the other taiga dwellers found themselves a niche too. And the highest reward for these tamed residents of the territory was a tender word or gesture, or petting or scratching for those who had done an exceptionally good job. But they could get jealous of each other some times, if one of them seemed to win special favour from Man. They could even have a quarrel over this.”
‘And what have Siberians been doing during the winter?” “Processing the nuts. Instead of husking the cones right after gathering them, the way it is done in our time for ease of transport, they keep the nuts stored in their resinous cones. The nuts keep that way for several years. Also during the winter women do handicrafts. For example, a hand-made shirt woven out of nettle fibres and embroidered by hand fetches quite a handsome price today And in wintertime Siberians receive people from all over the world and treat their ills.” “But, Anastasia, if Russia has indeed become such a rich land for Man to live in, surely that means that many other states have a desire to conquer Russia? Especially since, as you said, the arms factories have been shut down. Are you telling me Russia has become in fact an agrarian country, unprotected against an external aggressor?”
“Russia has not been transformed into an agrarian country. It has become a centre for world science.
‘And the factories manufacturing destructive weapons in Russia were eliminated only after people discovered an energy, before which the most up-to-date kinds of armaments not only proved useless, but even represented a threat to those countries which maintained them.”
“What kind of energy is that? Where does it come from and who discovered it?”
“This energy was possessed by the Atlanteans. But they got hold of it too early, and so Atlantis disappeared from the face of the Earth. And it was rediscovered by the children of the new Russia.”
“Children?! You’d better run all this by me in the proper order, Anastasia.”
